It's finally turning nice here. The sun is bright, grass finally turning green, last of the snow piles are disappearing.
I need to move south!

i was watching ch 12 news last night and the black community is in an outrage once again about this incident..........yet no one in the community asks the question why was a young man running around in the street with a shot gun shooting it and pointed it at a cop?

where's the common sense?

He was also a felon, so why did he have a gun in the first place? Out at night with a rifle!!! Hmmmm....I don't think he was out squirrel hunting. Then the dufus points it at a cop, yeah, smart thing to do numbnuts.
Funny how the blacks fail to see the error of his ways, but always blame the police no matter what the situation is.

agree. they were saying things like why did the cop shoot to kill him? why not wound him? like the officer had a choice..........do ya think this felon was thinking that way?
another city hall march?
meanwhile black on black crime escalates, clean up your own house before you talk about everyone elses.

Homicide, not murder, but 'gun-related death' which makes all the liberals happy.

It's 2013. Common sense is now a code word for racism.

i'm fed up with the "victim" card being played constantly. even our president plays the "victim" card when things don't go his way. instead of staying in washington and trying to work out whatever issue he has, he goes on another roadshow tour, at the cost to us taxpayers,bemoaning the the public about the issue.
maybe this is one reason why it is being played so often, things do trickle down from the top.

Glad to hear you're not marching on city hall for the 'right' to point a shotgun at a cop. But still, we're doomed.

You answered your own question in your first line, "the black community". Common sense should not be used in this reasoning.

Ok I give up.... I've read this post several times and I honestly can't tell if you are being serious or not.

Are you kidding?

There you go again with the racist card. This is getting a little boring don't you think? Why can't you people just own up to the fact that what this kid did was wrong? And you wonder why whites hate you? You can't even think straight outside of your little imperfect black world.
So what you're implying is that if the cop was black and he shot the punk it would be ok with you, but not a white cop? So now, who is the racist? I think you've got more to worry about than your dumb snap card.

That post was an obvious joke, but it got you to react, which was the point.
