    ok, ok. let me try this another way. Do you agree that if this guy had on OUNCE OF SENSE and didn't run from the cop at least twice(something no rational human being would do) that he would still be alive and well? Because if the answer is "yes" than that means the man had a hand in his own demise. that's all I'm saying. I'm not rooting for the cop to go free. I'm just talking reality.

    Slager has been charged with murder for a damn good reason, pity you can't see that. I guess if the girl hadn't been wearing shorts and a halter top while jogging through the park she'd not have been raped, knifed, and dumped in the creek bed. Must have had a hand in her own demise.

    so you're comparing a man with a warrant on him who ran from the cops(twice) with an innocent woman wearing a halter top? Do you know what a quantum leap is? because I believe you accomplished it.

    There are few things more ubiquitous on the right than blaming Obama for virtually anything and everything. Coffee shortage, it's Obama, school lunch pizza takes like ****-on-a-shingle, it's Obama's fault, Miley Cyrus miss her period, Obama's fault.

    Frankly I think it's comical.

    It's not justifiable. Hence his immediate firing and the murder charges brought against him.

    Hmmm. Just watched dash cam footage of the initial car stop. Annoying and not really relevant but the guy was pulled over for not paying child support...and was driving a Mercedes Benz.

    Well, POS or not (and I dont think highly, obviously, of those that dont pay their child support, male or female)....he didnt deserve to die as he did.

    Frankly, that's called hyperbole.

    "Cops" as a class don't do such things as a matter of policy or common practice. Apples and Orangutans....

He said that towards the end of the war if a person was walking towards him with a weapon he would have to wait until the actual weapon was pointed at him, or shots fired before he could respond.

    As a side note the Geneva convention calls for FMJ bullets in fields of battle, where police are allowed to use HP's on civilians. Again, some real bass aquards thinking....
    HPs help protect the public. The drama around HPs is ridiculous.
