    If your generalization is that people wearing hoodies look like thugs, then yes - it's pretty baseless considering the tens of millions of hoodies that have been sold in this country to people of all stripes and sizes in the last 10 years.

    I agree, if that was my generalization it would be baseless.

    I'm not saying everyone wearing a hoodie is planning on knocking over a liquor store, I'm saying most people planning on knocking over a liquor store are wearing a hoodie.

    See the difference Sherlock?

    So now it isn't? Hm - could have sworn you spent 7 pages arguing wearing a hoodie made you look like a thug.

    Re: Act like a thug die like one!

    Unless the officer posted in his official capacity, I see NO reason for ANY discipline.

    Trayvon Martin was a burglar, thief, drug dealer (to children) at both school and the neighorhood, a doper, vandal and a violent felony assailant. It is lucky Zimmerman did have his 9mm. If not, it likely he would have just been another unsolved murder as a result of him reporting to police a drug peddler and burglar working the neighborhood. Trayvon Martin (not a child but a 6' 3" 17 year old) was engaged in felony aggravated assault and attempted murder at the time he was shot.

    Calling him a "thug" was an understatement and believing better the criminal die than the innocent person is not an outrageous opinion to have. Regardless, unless he was speaking in his capacity as a police officer he could express his opinion the same as everyone else. I'm in law enforcement. If my identity known should I be fired or suspended for expressing my opinion? Do I HAVE to hide my identity to anyone and everyone I express my personal opinion about? People in law enforcement have private free speech rights too.

    I've realized your tactic now. You get blatantly exposed for being a liar, then you find a rag which supports your views, get destroyed with that and run along and find ways to make up more ****.

    Who was caught posting disinformation is not me. This is not only in many major media and press reports, but also people speaking on television. Nor do his parents deny it, but rather object to negatives being revealed about their son.

    I JUST EXPOSED YOU FOR IT AND YOU CONTINUED TO MAKE **** UP. Please stop doing this to yourself. You're starting to look ridiculous. Case and point your little Daily Mail hit and run.

    Lol, no they object to liars like you making up things as they go. Tell us how Trayvon was a drug dealer again? I'm dying to know about your knowledge of drug dealers and how you can't smoke weed without smelling like it lol. The best part is that you're so blatantly ridiculous in your assertions - you forget there are people like myself who actually smoked weed for years and never ONCE got caught. Actually, I use to hotbox my cars and spray them down with Febreeze. No way for a human being to smell it without them having the nose of a ****ing bloodhound.

    Did I miss it?

    What color was this police officer?
    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.
