    No adjustment need to be made. Your thoughts are apparently dark and sickly twisted to think that vengeance is even called for.

    The Militarization of local Police forces Nationwide is a major problem. Many of these cops just can't wait to use deadly force. Send them all to shrinks and cull out the trigger happy cowards that can't communicate with the public type that they have allegedly been trained to communicate with. This is another system that is broken. Take away their guns and tasers. There job is similar to babysitting the public, not attacking the public. Their's is not a military role and shouldn't be misconstrued as such.

    And what are they then to do when confronted with violent and resisting suspects? Call on a different Police force?

    If we did what you suggest, we would just have more crime.

    The establishment of justice is certainly not dark or twisted. It is the actions of these cops that is dark and twisted.

    One main difference between what we believe is that you seem to believe that no matter what a judge says it without question the correct and just decision. I don't think this is the case. The action the cop took in the video to instigate this situation shows that he was intent on having a confrontation with this young man. Whether or not he intended his death is irreverent; he knowingly caused this situation to happen and should be held to account for his actions.

    I was speaking about your thoughts of vengeance, which is.

    Wrong. Their actions were legal and within the training they received.

    And again a faulty interpretation of what occurred.
    Kelly was playing a game and failing to cooperate. He escalated the situation every step of the way.
    Had he cooperated and not played his stupid little game none of this would have happened.

    Thankfully the Jury saw the evidence and made their decision on that, and not emotion.

    Death of Kelly Thomas - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Like with Trayvon Martin, what matters is what happened that day. No one can go back and retroactively apply the death penalty because of a police record, be that some random guy or the cops. I don't care what his record is.

    What a gentile soul indeed!
    Are you saying he was Jewish?

    So a police state, then? You know, one where they can bust down your door because they want to, rule by fear, and apply the death penalty to anyone with a record?

    I do not believe anybody said that, did they?

    It shows he wasn't a gentle soul as claimed.
    Do you really not understand that?

    Apparently not, as you want to bring up some ridiculous absurdity of retroactive application of the death penalty. Which clearly is no the case.
