    But there were a lot of refugees fleeing Lybia! That's what I'm trying to tell you! You do remember that there was already a civil war going on in your "model nation" before we even got involved! Is your hatred of the west made you so blind to facts?

    Well that depends. Is there a dictator butchering protesters in Cleveland and using rape as a form of torture? If that's the case, then I think something should be done.

    Ask a silly rhetorical question, and guess what you get back.

    In Cleveland the cops shoot 12 year old kids. On the good side, they don't torture them first, they just shoot them. Does that count? It's not rhetorical.

    Actually no were not. If you recall, when they called it in over the police scanner, they believed he was much older.

    So ha! Gotcha there!

    The caller said it looked like it could be a kid with a toy gun.

    Talk about the police call in. When the officer called in, he described him as a male in his 20's, now clearly wrong mind you, but the point is that to the police, he didn't look like a 12 yo child.

    The shooting was at a kid's playground, for krissake. The original caller stated it might be a toy gun. I can't draw you a picture. The officer fired within 2 seconds of getting out of his cruiser.
