    Didn't you see the video? You know the cop was found not guilty, right? Car to re-think that statement.

    I've got a few SouthPark redneck pics if you'd like to change your avatar.

    Dis'z Amer'ka! De tuk er jib!
    I like how you just tried to turn this around. I was referencing the fact that the police officers punished the suspect, when punishing suspects is not in their domain. But I think you already knew that when you dishonestly attempted to change the context.

    And yes, a white jury in Texas found him innocent. A Federal court, trying him on civil rights violations will not.

    The term is "not guilty". Innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, remember? The cop's guilt wasn't proven, therefore he's innocent. Amer'kuh, **** yeah!

    Uh, no, the court found him "not guilty".

    Oh, so cops get just treatment, and I'm assuming if they'd been found guilty you'd expect they be sentenced appropriately and not dragged out and beaten by a bunch of thugs, right?

    But a regular citizen should be given no trial and get whooped in the street?

    Seriously, move somewhere better suited to your ideals.

    You cry civil rights and demand due process until the court does something you don't personally agree with, then all of a sudden the court is corrupt

    Save your hypocritical equivocating bull**** for someone stupid enough to believe you.

    I agree. Jerry would most likely applaud those who lynched blacks in the South and got off. "They were found not guilty" is what he would say.

    You just can't get past the fact that the system worked even-though the courts didn't do what you wanted. You wanted due process, you got it. Due process isn't a vending machine where you can push a button and get the verdict you want.
