    Do you make it a habit of blaming the whole for the actions of a few?

    And yes, as far as the man in the article is concerned, no crime happened.

    The prosecutor was working for the state you.... you.... person!

    If one of these "occupy" folks kicked a homeless guy's teeth out and got arrested..... the prosecutor would still be working for the state, but would be doing so on behalf of the victim, the homeless guy.

    In a case of trespassing, the prosecutor is working for the state, on behalf of the city of <insert city name here>

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    no it means that the man was innocent of the crime it doesn't mean a crime never did happen
    If a bank is robbed and the person was found innocent of the robbery it doesn't mean the bank was never robed all it means is he wasn't the one who did it

    And i will ask you this, Do you believe the Tea Party is racist because of a very few had racist signs at some rally?

    In regards to the guy in the article this is irrelevent.

    I don't blame the whole for the actios of a few. So no, the Tea Party as a whole is not racist. Only those individuals holding racist signs are.....did you really expect me to answer differently after my last response to you?

    Good news! It's good to see a jury rising to the occasion.

    How about now we prosecute crooked cops like these? If we don't hold police responsible for their transgressions, they'll keep transgressing.

    It really bugs me to hear all of the cop hatred on this website. Those guys do a hard job, with garbage hours, for very minimal pay. And they have to deal with idiots like some that I've read on this website. Sure, there are a few crooked ones. Name a profession that doesn't have a few crooked ones. Just because there are a few crooked ones doesn't mean we should lump them all together. Most of these guys are doing more of a service to our country than active duty servicemembers are IMO. These guys actually protect citizens from the bad guys unlike us who go galavanting around the world fighting people who would allegedly leave their caves to bomb us if we didn't. Stop being a bunch of haters and appreciate the job done by these guys.

    Also, he wasn't "innocent". He was probably found not guilty due to lack of evidence. Man, that reasonable doubt is an awesome thing. He pled the 5th and the prosecution couldn't make their case.

    It's that simple.
    No he was found not guilty because a videotape surface which proved that the cops were flat out lying.
