    No, really it couldn't. The "gentle giant" you refer to didn't commit armed robbery.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    I can't, however, let it pass without saying that I'll be waiting for someone to suggest that the officer should have been using a taser instead of a gun, so that the poor armed robber didn't have to die.
    You're confusing events. Nobody will be saying such a thing, so don't hold your breathe or do a food fast waiting.

    But he died because he didn't want to get arrested for stealing a pack of cigars - same stupid decision making.

    Really hate to hear this. My thoughts go out to all those affected by it.
    Be skeptical of anyone who wears a political label - party or ideology - with pride. Most of our problems are because people love to "debate" (it isn't debate, but they pretend it is), but are not interested in developing solutions. Solutions require empathy, thought, and compromise, and most folks aren't interested.
