More to the point, what lawyer - what Harvard Law School Graduate - would be stupid enough to say in public ""I don't know all the facts of the situation...but the police acted stupidly."????

<quoted text>the theft is not part of this issue..the cop that stopped him had no idea he was related to that incident. when a citizen tries to beat a cop and take his gun, the cop must defend himself and our system of law enforcement.
Yes, if that is what happened. I'm in favor of video cameras in all cop cars, with audio at all times

U.S. warplanes carried out airstrikes in northern Iraq near ISIS-controlled Mosul Dam early Saturday morning, the Kurdish news agency Rudaw reported, citing eyewitnesses.

CNN confirmed that a U.S. and Iraqi military operation aimed at retaking the country's largest hydroelectric dam from the so-called Islamic State was scheduled to begin early Saturday morning (Friday at 6 p.m. ET).

The operation was to begin with U.S. and Iraqi airstrikes against ISIS positions, with Iraqi and Kurdish Peshmerga forces following up on the ground.

You really need to get over this issue you have with race and skin color, Lily. It's not healthy.
Would you support a President Alan West or a President Condoleezza Rice?
No, you wouldn't. But no one would call you a racist.

Yes, that is assuming that the police will tell the truth. As to whether he was portrayed accurately or not; if he was a thief who shoplifted cigars, it is not up to the police to determine if he is guilty and kill him. That is why we have a court system.
We had a group of Russian women who were caught shoplifting at Our mall who ran from the police, they were caught and charged but not killed.
Just like the black man who was killed by the police in NY last week. What was his crime?
They claim he was selling cigarettes, is that seriously a reason to kill someone?
The police do lie to cover for each other, your assumption that the police are always right is insane. They set people up, they steal from their victims, one was caught on camera here after a jewelry store robbery pocketing a watch!
With this much attention on the towns police dept, perhaps the truth will emerge. I hope.

What's ironic?

You know damned well she's right. You leftists will be chanting ¨Uncle Tom¨ should a GOP candidate be an African American. Case in point: Dr. Benjamin Carson. You don't know what to make of him -- he's an enigma in your world. Heck, if the candidate isn't a middle aged white male, you'll be beside yourselves.

That your side unabashedly employs a racial double standard is not debatable.

"THE POLICE ACTED STUPIDLY" BECAUSE THEY IGNITED WHAT IS OBVIOUSLY A RACIALLY CHARGED ENVIRONMENT. IF YOU WALK INTO A ROOM FULL OF OPEN CASKS WITH "GUNPOWDER" STENCILED ON THEIR SIDES TO SMOKE A... WELL, A CIGAR IN THIS CASE.. YOU MAY REASONABLY BE LABELLED STOOPID... IT MAKES NO DIFFERENCE WHO ATTACKED WHOM, BECAUSE YOU LOOKIN' AT THE ONE INCIDENT, YOU IGNORIN' THE BIG PICTURE...

THE BIG PICTURE IS AS FOLLOWS:

1. BLACKS STILL SORE ABOUT THE SLAVERY THINGY, EVEN IF THEY HAD NO RELATIVES BACK THERE BEIN' SOLD AN' PICKIN' COTTON.
2. DESPITE CURRENT PROFUSION OF BLACK MEN WITH WHITE WOMEN, PEOPLE SEEM TO DIVIDE INSTINCTIVELY ALONG RACIAL AN' ETHNIC LINES. INDEED THE LINES GET BLURRIER WITH THE PASSAGE OF TIME, BUT IT TAKES A REEEEEEALLLY LONG TIME. E-V-O-L-U-T-I-O-N...
3. VERY OFTEN, HOWEVER, THESE INSTINCTIVE, DIVISIVE LINES DEVELOP INTO SURROGATES FOR OTHER PERCEIVED SLIGHTS AN' INJUSTICES WHICH GENERATES FRICTION: BLACKS ARE LAZY AN' STOOPID NOT AN OPPRESSED MINORITY; WHITES ARE ALL COMPLETELY OUT OF TOUCH WITH THE BLACK COMMUNITY AN' HATE US...
4. YOU THROW RELIGION AN' POLITICS INTO THE MIX, WELL, YOU JUS' STENCIL "GUNPOWDER" ON THE SIDE OF THE CASKS.
5. AFTER JUST A FEW GENERATIONS OF 1-4 YOU AT THE POINT OF TAKIN' OUT YOU LIGHTER... YOU BEIN' STOOPID.

Too bad we don't hold politicians to the same standards we hold cops, eh?

Pols may not carry guns, but look at all the needless deaths over the decades they're directly linked to.

Your side doesn't care as long as it's a democrat and they promise to make your life easier with promises of entitlements.

IF HE'D USED GRENADES HE MIGHT'VE BEEN MO' SUCCESSFUL, I DON' KNOW?...

IN ANY EVENT, I AM INSTINCTIVELY MO' COMFORTABLE WITH OTHERS OF NORTHERN EUROPEAN DESCENT. WE SHARE THEN SAME TRADITIONS AND CULTURE. OCCASIONALLY WE GO A L'IL OVER THE TOP WITH ALL THAT, BUT HEY?... I AM, HOWEVER, VERY COMFORTABLE WITH BLACK WOMEN... WELL, ANY WOMEN REALLY, I AM ACCEPTED WITH THAT GROUP. THIS MAKES MANY BLACK MEN UNCOMFORTABLE... VERY UNCOMFORTABLE... I UNDERSTAND BECAUSE MANY BLACK MEN MAKE ME UNCOMFORTABLE... FO' MANY OF THE SAME REASONS.

I DON'T RESPOND WELL TO THE PERVERSION OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE, EITHER BY INTENT OR BY INFURIATING TECHNOLOGY. WITNESS HOW MANY OF YOU CAIN'T SPELL. THIS SEEMINGLY INSIGNIFICANT DETAIL MAKES IT VERY DIFFICULT FO' ME TO FIND COMMON GROUND WITH... Y'ALL FO' INSTANCE... I AM INCLINED BY MY BIRTHPLACE TO RECOIL FROM "ASK" BEING PRONOUNCED, "AXE," JUST AS I AM HEARING THE WORD "SIT" BEING DIVIDED INTO TWO OR MO' SYLLABLES.

SO THERE'S THE WHOLE THING, ENORMOUSLY SIMPLIFIED. I PERSONALLY NEED NO GIANT TEENAGER WHO APPEARS TO BE THE HULK PERSONIFIED PUTTIN HIS BAD ATTITUDE ALL UP IN MY FACE... THEY DO SOMETIMES BUT THEY END UP APOLOGIZING... SAME WITH ANY GROUP THAT DON' LOOK OR ACT LIKE MY GROUP THINKS THEY SHOULD. SINCE I GREW A BEARD I GUESS THEY THINK I SANTA? I NOT SANTA... BUT HERE'S THE THING, THEY HERE, THEY QUEER, AN' THEY MEAN TO STAY SO YOU BES' FIND A WAY TO CHOKE IT DOWN CAUSE OTHERWISE IT COME BACK TO BITE YOU IN THE ASS... IN SPADES.

Of course she is. Calling a black person Uncle Tom (which she has countless times) is racist in and of itself as it implies blacks are not smart enough to make their own decisions regarding politics and party.

Heck, I suppose if in the eyes of the liberals Paula Deen is a racist, then everyone is.
