So am I but trying to keep Cops, Federal/Municipal workers, Teachers, Judges and Politicians honest is hard enough - how do you keep the black community honest?
THAT'S the $64 Million question.
Clueless Chicago blacks are protesting right now to show "solidarity" with those in Ferguson and yet the details of the events are far from conclusive. Jumping the gun like this is typical of black antics, politics and culture. Knee-jerk racism in the black community gets them free consumer goods with their trashing stores during rioting but only fans the flames of racial unrest that much higher because of their theft, dishonesty and racism feeding directly into the racial stereotypes of blacks as a whole.
And then Little Alvin Sharpton shows up with his Gasoline Cans and Fans.
Excellent!!

I'm not sure why Dorian Johnson isn't being charged. In the video you can see that Brown handed off the cigars to Dorian but I won't speculate. The police have their reasons.
I saw the film a few minutes ago and it clearly shows that he put the cigars back on the counter.

Bats and human rabies in the United States
Rabies in humans is rare in the United States. There are usually only one or two human cases per year. But the most common source of human rabies in the United States is from bats. For example, among the 19 naturally acquired cases of rabies in humans in the United States from 1997-2006, 17 were associated with bats. Among these, 14 patients had known encounters with bats. Four people awoke because a bat landed on them and one person awoke because a bat bit him. In these cases, the bat was inside the home.
One person was reportedly bitten by a bat from outdoors while he was exiting from his residence. Six people had a history of handling a bat while removing it from their home. One person was bitten by a bat while releasing it outdoors after finding it on the floor inside a building. One person picked up and tried to care for a sick bat found on the ground outdoors. Three men ages 20, 29 and 64 had no reported encounters with bats but died of bat-associated rabies viruses.
yes, it is rare in humans these days as we know how to prevent, treat it.

we can even vaccinate against it, as most wildlife rehab specialists do...

This is a crime spree with claims of police brutality keeping the police from responding adequately to the situation.
Time to clamp down hard and apologize later
Wow. For once I agree with you. I think it was a huge mistake for Obama to state,“There’s no excuse for police to use excessive force against peaceful protests or to throw protesters in jail for lawfully exercising their First Amendment rights." Such scrutiny really did tie their hands.

How has the IRS or Lois Lerner violated anybody's rights moron? No one has a "right" to a 501(c)(4) tax status.
You're an idiot Nosewax; you always have been and always will be!
Of course they do, Idiot, if they fulfill the eligibility requirements .

Just as much as you have the right to make an ass of yourself in public- and we know damned well you fulfill the eligibility requirements there, Dood.

Congress passed that law and the IRS, along with Email-Loser Lerner, are supposed to prosecute its dictates properly. They didn't. Therefore, they trampled on the rights of many.

You're an uninformed, opinionated and loudmouthed idiot, Dupie; you always have been and always will be!

Are you still trying to sell that crap Carol? No banks were pressured into making unsafe loans you damned liar. Those toxic loans were made by unregulated mortgage brokers like Country Wide and Indy Mac who did it because they knew that they could dump them into the equally unregulated mortgage backed securities market. It was your precious Republicans who fought to keep that market unregulated as well as the markets for credit default swaps.
You're an idiot Carol!
Why do you hate Reality, Dood?

Name any former president - Republican or Democrat - who rejected any negotiations with the other side by announcing "I won."
Find me any major piece of legislation or bill that didn't have one Democrat or Republican on board under either party's leadership.
You won't. This is a first. And precisely why we have gridlock in Congress.
The Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, is another big part of the problem. He works for his massa - the "light-skinned Negro who doesn't talk in a Negro dialect unless he wants to."

<quoted text>sadly, most red light camera systems have been allowed to be set up as revenues systems for the companies that run them, with the municipality getting a small share.
they could actually do good and save lives if properly used. speed cameras have worked quite well where used properly.
That's exactly what they are. They have been discovering that the cost of the cameras doesn't justify the revenue and the clogging up the courts with this nonsense. Smells of kickbacks to municipal governments; you know, those elections that have piddling turnouts of 15%? I don't understand why people don't seem to care about this and then they cry about stuff like this.
I'll probably just pay it, but I am against them, totally. In my case, it's not as if I ran a red light.
We have right turn on red here, but there may be a matter of if my tire was touching the line or something stupid like that. Seriously?

what are you talking about?! what cities actually bought the cameras? as i clearly stated, they are run by private firms that paid for the whole system and installation.what cities installed and ran the system by themselves? what cities were you referring to in your statement?
