Two faced hypocrite say what???
At Neel’s trial, police detective John Ianachione testified that the Secret Service told local police to confine “people that were there making a statement pretty much against the president and his views” in a so-called free speech area. Paul Wolf, one of the top officials in the Allegheny County Police Department, told Salon that the Secret Service “come in and do a site survey, and say,‘Here’s a place where the people can be, and we’d like to have any protesters put in a place that is able to be secured.’” Pennsylvania district judge Shirley Rowe Trkula threw out the disorderly conduct charge against Neel, declaring,“I believe this is America. Whatever happened to ‘I don’t agree with you, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it’?”Similar suppressions have occurred during Bush visits to Florida. A recent St. Petersburg Times editorial noted,“At a Bush rally at Legends Field in 2001, three demonstrators—two of whom were grandmothers—were arrested for holding up small handwritten protest signs outside the designated zone. And last year, seven protesters were arrested when Bush came to a rally at the USF Sun Dome. They had refused to be cordoned off into a protest zone hundreds of yards from the entrance to the Dome.” One of the arrested protesters was a 62-year-old man holding up a sign,“War is good business. Invest your sons.” The seven were charged with trespassing,“obstructing without violence and disorderly conduct.”
Police have repressed protesters during several Bush visits to the St. Louis area as well. When Bush visited on Jan. 22, 2003, 150 people carrying signs were shunted far away from the main action and effectively quarantined. Denise Lieberman of the ACLU of Eastern Missouri commented,“No one could see them from the street. In addition, the media were not allowed to talk to them. The police would not allow any media inside the protest area and wouldn’t allow any of the protesters out of the protest zone to talk to the media.” When Bush stopped by a Boeing plant to talk to workers, Christine Mains and her five-year-old daughter disobeyed orders to move to a small protest area far from the action. Police arrested Mains and took her and her crying daughter away in separate squad cars.
The Justice Department is now prosecuting Brett Bursey, who was arrested for holding a “No War for Oil” sign at a Bush visit to Columbia, S.C. Local police, acting under Secret Service orders, established a “free speech zone” half a mile from where Bush would speak. Bursey was standing amid hundreds of people carrying signs praising the president. Police told Bursey to remove himself to the “free speech zon
Remember these incidents well. Gunner is a moron ex cop who probably brutalized many in his town. I think that all police cars should have dashboard cameras and go pros; that way there is no cause for speculation and the cops can't lie.

Maybe he won't. Maybe his handlers took him aside and convinced him that his stupid talk might work sucking up to the black community but it will just inflame the rest of America.

Missiles and bombs, possibly fired by U.S. aircraft, hit areas near the militant-controlled Mosul Dam in northern Iraq Saturday, Western media reported, as the leader of Iraq’s Kurds appealed for weapons and supplies from Germany and other EU nations.

Meanwhile, reports emerged of a possible massacre of dozens of men from the ethnic Yazidi group by radical militants who abducted their wives and children in northern Iraq.

Islamic State has captured wide swathes of northern Iraq since June, executing non-Sunni Muslim captives, displacing tens of thousands of people and drawing the first U.S. air strikes in the region since Washington withdrew troops in 2011.

This week’s airstrikes, U.S. official said, were aimed in part at preventing the massacre of tens of thousands of Yazidis who took shelter on a barren mountaintop. Most were able to escape with the help of Kurdish fighters.

Residents living near the dam told The Associated Press Saturday that the area was being targeted by airstrikes, but it was not immediately clear whether the attacks were being carried out by Iraq's air force or the United States. Islamic State militants seized the Tigris River dam on Aug. 7.

Kurdish Leaders Appeals to Germany

The leader of Iraq's Kurds, meanwhile, appealed to Germany for weapons to help Kurdish fighters battling militants, and said foreign powers must find a way to cut off the group's funding.

The European Union on Friday gave backing to EU governments who want to supply arms and ammunition to the Kurds, but only with the consent of the government in Baghdad.

So Saddam's history of using WMDs on his enemies post 9/11 wouldn't have given you any reason to think he wouldn't have somehow gotten them into the USA?
He didn't especially like us after the Gulf War if you've forgotten or aren't old enough to remember that war.
You talk about stability under Saddam like he was an ally. He paid families of suicide bombers to kill our allies. Killing Americans post 9/11 was an open window.
Here. Found this ABC article for you.
http://abcnews.go.com/WNT/story...
Saddam was a threat to destabilizing the entire civilized world. Even the UN knew it. Why is that Democrats suddenly got amnesia post 9/11? They knew it too at one time.
I'll answer the question for you. The Democrats suddenly got amnesia because winning at all costs trumps even their own prior convictions about someone like Saddam Hussein.
Well let's see son.

bushie boy called iraq, iran and n korea the Axis of Evil.

So the only country he ran into and made a mess of was iraq.

How's the other two countries doing?

After Ferguson shooting, nearly half of Americans don’t believe in justice – poll

Forty-five percent of US citizens don’t trust in justice amid police killings of civilians, according to a poll by HuffPost and YouGov in the immediate aftermath of the shooting of Michael Brown, a black teen, by a white officer in Ferguson, Missouri.

Ferguson fatal police shooting and popular protests - TIMELINE

At the same time, 37 percent of Americans do trust the justice system, while 19 percent are undecided.

The poll also found that 43 percent think police violence with the use of lethal force happens too often in the US, while 32 percent disagreed with the statement.

The reaction to Brown’s fatal shooting on August 9, and the protests of thousands of people that followed, was different, depending on the political beliefs and ethnicity of the respondents.

Democrats were three times more likely to speak out against deadly police violence than Republicans, the poll found.

Sixty-nine of black Americans thought the officers used lethal force too frequently, while only 37 percent of white Americans thought so. Over 65 percent of black US citizens don’t trust the justice system to deal with the guilty, while 40 percent of the white population don’t believe in the system either.

When asked if the police treat the black population more severely than the white population, 53 percent agreed, while 31 percent said police officers treat everyone the same.

Yes and it's horrible, makes all black people look bad. Now the people in Ferguson are protecting the stores from the looters; they don't want to be lumped in with the trouble makers.

Remember the LA riots? They destroyed black owned businesses as well. A very strange phenomenon; accomplishes nothing

That would only help if the authorities released the info-photos-statements quickly and that's not going to happen any time soon.

What sent the Trayvon case into the media stratosphere was that chief Billy Lee stonewalled the media and Travon's father__with Florida's version of the Sunshine Laws stonewalling is not only stupid but often illegal.

The Ferguson PD chief is not a good communicator__he should stay the fk away from TV cameras and microphones. He's also guilty of stonewalling even though Missouri's open government laws are nowhere near as tight as Florida's.

Big Mike Brown committed a felony at the convenience store. By shoving the store clerk he elevated a simple shoplifting into a felony strong arm robbery. And in spite of what anyone in the media is saying the dead guy in the street is absolutely the same guy that shoved the store clerk.

Big Mike's pal Darien Johnson has already compromised his version of events by lying out his azz about nearly everything__fk him and his lying azz attorney.

The cop, Darren Wilson knows exactly what happened to cause him to shoot and since it was broad daylight in the projects you can bet that there were others who saw how it went down, others who will eventually share what they saw.
