At the very least the police could have tried to save this poor man. The officers should have jumped in and rescued him. This smacks of racism to me. We simply cannot allow this to happen, he didn't deserve to die.

41 degree water ? Jump in you say ? That'd be death for the officer as well. The man made poor choices in life that led to his demise. He and others carjacked the vehicle they were in, then crashed it on a high speed chase. Poor man my butt.

I have seen the light. My fate is now in the hands of the wise and gentle ones leading the country. Flog away, my friend, I have been chastised.

Now yer just sucking all of the fun out of it, Old Man! But I know you: a spirit of humility and contrition will not last long! Even Boehner's professed spirit of bi-partisanship won't last the year!

Do you think King Obama would have jumped in to save him? I doubt it. it was only one vote.

My family in Staten Island lost everything in this storm. They are still homeless and living without anything. We started a fundraiser page for them in hopes to help raise money to help cover some repairs or to help them get back on their feet. If anyone wants to check it out please google "HURRICANE SANDY RELIEF FOR GJENASHAJ FAMILY" all donations will help my Sister, her husband and their 2 small children. If you don't have anything to spare that is fine as well a post on your face book would also help. Please and THANKS forGIVING.
