NO justice/ new shoes.
kunnects I agree, I am NOT giving the rioting thugs a pass by any means, all I am saying is that those who are granted power should be held to a higher account, not that we ALL shouldn't be held to account.
Funny how your idol, Obummer, feigns concern about tragic situations whose effects tend to promote support for his Leftists agendas, then sends WH or DOJ representatives to attend the wrong funerals.
Funny how you all focus on things of this nature in hopes of creating another scandal/outrage !
made in their hoods.
Stillhere - While I agree with your assessment of the police, that "They should do twice the time for any crime committed on duty", so too should it be for those caught committing violent acts and property damage under the cover of "protest".
In many states, if your caught speeding through a road construction site, the fines double. They double the penalty for that simple, careless act. What about violent crimes purposefully perpetrated?
The fact that the force of law backs off at the onset of rioting and looting contributes heavily to the mindset of "we are winning" and "I'll get me those new shoes, a bottle or two of liquor and some oxy at the CVS". It also does little to encourage merchandisers to rebuild, remain in operation in the area and pay the increased property insurance rates of a potential war zone.
Subsequently, the non-criminally charged 'protesters' can b-itch in the future about how there's no commercial investments made in
Prosecutors want a judge to bar attorneys, police and witnesses from talking outside court about the case of Freddie Gray, arguing that statements by attorneys for some of the six police officers accused in Gray's death could prejudice the public, according to court documents obtained Monday.
Maybe that prosecutor should practice what she preaches.
Her little speech on that Friday during which she announced indictments of the 6 police certainly did not help with the jury pool.
"I heard your call for 'no justice, no peace.'"
"To the youth of this city, I will seek justice on your behalf. This is a moment. This is your moment."
Stoke the fire.
There is without a doubt bad behavior on both parts, I hold the bad behavior of law enforcement in a harsher light. My wife used to work in an ER and would tell me often how cops would goad drunks into fighting to impress young nurses. They should do twice the time for any crime committed on duty
Do you think people take videos of suspects resisting arrest?
Or due people send in the video showing the police acting badly and delete the video of the suspect acting badly?
Spot on, absolem.
Oops wrong topic. My bad
Mod two studies jump to mind, one is the maxwell poll and another by NPR, 80% and 72% of welfare recipients were dems respectively by these two polls
Moderation...the same point in defending against non-law enforcement...or based on the determination of the judge or coroner...whichever may be the case.
At what point might you consider a person justified in defending themselves from police brutality/ abuse ?
Holders biased, chip on shoulder, DOJ determined that Hands up don't shoot did not happen.
It was determined that Brown was a victim of his own aggression.
Yeah they cannot let go of the lie, it plays so well into the narrative it just happens to NOT be true but no matter
OMG.... This is warped... We hash this out, a grand jury makes a decision. The DOJ investigates and here we go again....
How do you get that Michael brown was a victim? Because he's black? What do you know that the justice dept doesn't?
If L E continues to abuse their authority, there may be more torching.The victim in ferguson was just that. Hands up or not. The doj uncovered a level of abuse that should not exist in our cities.At what point might you consider a person justified in defending themselves from police brutality/ abuse ?
Baltimore will burn again. What do you suggest the police strategy and weaponry to be?
