    There was a really groovy movie about it...

    Internal Affairs (1990) - IMDb

    The best one was Kurt Russell in Dark Blue:

    As a Lakers fan who didn't pay attention to the name change initially, I was really confused on who World Peace was in the context of the commentators discussion.

    The one thing this shooting shows is that as much as people want to believe that we are all innocent until proven guilty, we'd rather let our biases rule our judgement instead of letting facts rule them.

    Yeah whatever, you are a genius and everybody else is an idiot. What a world you live in.

    Re: Ferguson

    What concerns me is how much people believe that actually is just sexied up for TV. There are several LEOs in this thread, or families of LEOs. Maybe people should listen to people who actually know what they are talking about.

    That doesn't stop anybody. I was military, but there are several armchair generals in here that know what I did better than I do.

    As much as I like that philosophy... to take Crue Cab as an example, maybe it isn't always a good idea to listen to a person just because of their job. As a teacher, I know that many teachers don't know what the hell they are talking about.
