    Nonsense, the cops were specifically reminded "keep your discipline" meaning to not shoot unless necessary. Instead of surrendering, he chose to shoot himself.

    And what do you mean "100% verified"? Has anyone claimed to have shot him?

    Today, Rand Paul is a hero. Obama? He's a freakin' goat. I bashed the bejesus out of George Bush when he was in office, for taking a giant crap on the Constitution, but what Obama is doing is something that not even George Bush would have thought of.... No, not even in his wildest wet dreams. Obama is Bush on steroids, and his assault on the Constitution of the United States needs to be stopped. Kudos to Rand Paul for having the balls to take him on.

    Article is here.
    His extortion didn't go far enough. All he got was a letter from Holder; what he needs is a letter from each of the SCOTUS judges, or at least one of the (moron) anti-freedom justices like Roberts that says Obama can't kill anyone he wants with drones.

    How far do law enforcement go in order to protect the life of the person causing the situation? He had literally HOURS! to end the standoff with a non-violent outcome.

    So please point to me where Senator Paul was debating this.
    Again, both you and Paul are misportraying the situation as if anything Holder said could be reasonably interpreted as allowing the targetting of anyone who is not engaged in combat

    Their original definition of "imminent" was sketchy at best which warranted his questions to be answered clearly.

    It did not warrant a filibuster

    His desire to grandstand is what motivated the filibuster

    Assumption without fact. Even if he was (for whatever reason) I really don't care. That is politics.

    Rand was the only one making assumptions concerning this issue.
