    Why is Obama's so-called involvement more important than what actually happened? I doubt the president micromanages to this degree.

    Why can't conservatives discuss what actually happened? You know, the man who was murdered?

    No.

    Just in case you missed it, the cop that shot the prisoner was convicted. That the jury that convicted him had their heads up their asses isn't unusual, bad verdicts happed all the time. Look at the retarded jury in Los Angeles that let OJ Simpson go free.

    Since that issue is over and done with to the fullest extent the law allows, it's pointless to harp on it.

    The real issue now is the application of double jeopardy by a racist Justice Department that let's black people off the hook when convictions are already in hand.

    What actually happened is that the shooter was tried and found guilty of a minor charge which was given them as one of the possible options to convict for.

    Guess what?

    Doesn't matter what the verdict was. The jury could have come out and acquitted him, and that STILL would be the end of the story as far as the law goes.

    Now we're discussing the government taking action that's outside the law.

    That doesn't bother you any?

    Because that's not the topic of the thread?

    A man was killed and the person who did it stood trial and was found guilty. Now Obama's Justice Department wishes to investigate. I hope that catches you up.

    If there are additional charges to file, I don't see the problem with that. Any existence of such additional charges would be best discovered by discussing and reviewing the incident, maybe, rather than Obama-related conspiracy theories?

    Well we all know what really happened.



    3 cops held down 1 man and one of them shot him in the back but oh well. C'est la vie. Besides, we all know what happens to cops who go to jail.

    Anybody want to take bets on how long it takes for general pop. to get him?

    If there are additional charges to be filed, then it's the responsibility of the State of California to bring them.

    So, because the State didn't find the man guilty as the Obama Admin wanted, they are going to try to make this a Federal Crime now?

    I'd say this proves that race trumps all in the Obama Dept. of Justice.
    That is kind of simplistic. In the 1960's, 3 civil rights workers were slain in Mississippi. At the time, 2 of the killers had blown up a black church and got caught. They were sentenced to 10 years in prison by the judge, who then suspended the sentences. And of course we all know about the investigation that wasn't, concerning the murders, don't we. Do you think race trumped all in the Department of Justice then? Fact is, that is one of the reasons the Department of Justice is there. An investigation won't hurt anyone.

    Can you point to any similarities between the 1960s case you mentioned and this one? Keep in mind the cop was found guilty by the jury.

    Thanks.
