    I'm no expert but US police look even more heavy-handed to me, just from TV though, even if they are a little less PC.

    Well these people do weild power, we must always be on guard against those in positions of trust and power.

    We entrust the police to protect us. We MUST trust that they do the right thing, and give the investigative arms time to work.

    But by no means should we give the Obama administration any time, right?

    I'm just hearing about this.

    The city across the river had a multiple murder this morning - a mother and two children.

    The mother of one of the dead children came to the scene and was tasered because she was out of control.

    There are no words.

    Too early to tell. But then again this is Louisiana and these are cops. But whatever happens the odds don't look good for the dead man. Just sayin'. Slap on the wrists. Don't do it again. 3-6 months without pay. 2 year suspension. Any of these would seem to be almost protocol in the North with cops who **** up and it wouldn't even be remotely shocking if it happened in the South. Specially in the South. It seems like rarely do cops who kill civilians without any kind of criminal actually end up in jail. I mean I could be wrong and I probably am but I've heard very few(none actually) stories of cops in general population.
    Small southern town, and this is what you get.

    On the other hand, large southern city, and you get something completely different. In Bellaire, a bedroom community embedded inside Houston, a cop shot a baseball player who had a good chance of making the Majors. His crime? He was black and driving a Mercedes. He was sitting down in his driveway, unarmed, when the cop shot him in the liver. The result? The cop was indicted this week. He will be going to a Texas prison, where there are LOTS of black inmates who would give their eye teeth to kill a crooked cop.

    That can be handled in another thread if you'd like. Obama is trying to do things that are wrong, so no, he shouldn't get anytime. when he stops trying to turn the country into a socialst, cradle to grave nanny state then maybe, but otherwise...

    no, he deserves no acceptance of failed ideas and plans.

    typical race baiting on your part.


    "Police said Monroe was shot after he pointed a gun at them,"


    but instead of waiting to wait until the investigation concludes, you want to believe one side over another...


    how sharpton of you.
    Wow....

    Now you decide to wait for the investigation to conclude instead of blaming somebody right off the bat....

    Heart of the story:

    "Police said Monroe was shot after he pointed a gun at them, though no one claims Monroe fired shots. Friends and family said he was holding a bottle of sports water. They accuse police of planting a gun he owned next to his body"

    You're not supposed to point guns at cops.

    Those trigger happy sons-of-bitches have wet dreams for the days when it happens.

    No, I look at historical equivilents of the same thing Obama is trying, has been or is being tried elsewhere... ain't working there, why would it work here?


    Nice try though.
