there a lot that we say bout each other but putting are moms and dads in this is child like so I'll be the better man and take back what I said bout your mom if you stop talking bout my mom bro cause the one who taught me to use profanity is me and this world
I am not your "bro", I shall continue to question your mama's role in teaching you how you talk until you tell us who taught you to use profanity and sub-standard English to communicate. BTW, using "are" for "our" is a gross aberration in its application in which you used it. It is never "childlike" or infantile to question the origin of a word or incorrect usage of our language.

Most cops are losers. Even the married ones beat their wives.
They hate their job, the world and everyone in it.
Most are an embarassment to the jurisdictions they work in.

You paint with a broad brush which makes your remarks biased.
I know several policemen and they have never abused their wives. Do you also believe policewomen beat their husbands?

Yes, yes I do. Most of them dress in bondage gear, a dead giveaway. You never see their husbands without a shirt on so they can hide the whip marks.

I will agree that a lot of cops certainly aren't saints and they do get take on the job of police officer for all the wrong reasons. Some are attracted to the job because quite frankly they're too lazy to do anything else, while others see it as a way to gain power over others. But the majority of cops I see and have dealt with seem to be pretty decent and just doing their jobs. But lets not be so naive to think a badge makes someone a totally honest and upright citizen. Unfortunately some honorable professions like police officer will attract those who wish to bully others etc., just as sometimes a child molestor might be attracted to the priesthood. EVERY single occupation out there is sprinkled with weirdos, sexual deviants, miscreants, creeps, so a badge will not make a person immune to those social disorders. Cops are just human beings, no worse or better than the average citizen for the most part.
Nicely put. Very insightful.

Now can you tell us about hillbillies?

Translation: "Dave, I hate it when you make an *ss of me and expose my double-talking hypocrisy."

Keep whining, pee wee....not that it will garner you any sympathy from me. You can bank on me continuing to slap you around and make you look like the fool you are.

Just outside of Tampa off interstate 75 is the biggest Confederate Flag I've ever seen. That thing is GInormous. I bet DementedDave cringes every time he has to cruise pass the Stars and Bars. Cool flag. hehe. Shoving it right up the arse of political correctness NEO-Bolsheviks.
That flag is a wonderful reminder of when the real soldiers from the north made the southern boys run off into the woods. Losers then losers now.

Raise it higher so we can see it better!!!!!

IT is UTTERLY sad HOW PEOPLE DO NOT VALUE LIFE LET ALONG SOMEONE ELSE'S LIFE. THE COMMENTS THAT PEOPLE HAVE POSTED IN REGARDS TO THIS POST CLEARLY SHOWS WHY WE ARE STILL DIVIDED AS A WHOLE. WAKE UP PEOPLE A LIFE WAS TAKEN- NO ONE WAS THERE- SO CLEARLY ALL YOU COULD DO IS SPECULATE BUT TO BELITTLE SOMEONE WHEN THEY'VE DIED SHOWS YOUR LEVEL OF MATURITY AMONGST OTHER THINGS. MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND HOPEFULLY WHEN YOU DIE YOU WONT BE A LOSER--- ONE LAST THING WE ARE NOT IN SCHOOL WHO CARES ABOUT NOT SPELLING CORRECTLY ON A ARTICLE ----GROW UP!

Correct spelling aids communication for those who wish to share their thoughts with others. Those who only want to shout their thoughts to themselves care not for correct spelling. Bless your little heart.

Correct word usage helps a great deal as well.

Case in point: succeed vs. secede.

You, little fellow, should NEVER, EVER, AT ANYTIME criticize another poster's writing skills.

I don't know the deceased but no one has the right to talk ill of the dead especially when you weren't there and don't have all the facts. Everyone has a right to an opinion but remember its only your own personal opinion and it doesn't necessarily make it true. Whether the man attacked the cop or not I don't believe he deserved to die. The cop could have easily wounded, arrested and taken the man to jail.

It's a senseless tragedy no matter how you look at it. Not all cops are bad but the truth is there are corrupt and good cops patrolling. If you follow the news you would know innocent teens and adults are shot all the time by cops who are quick to shoot to kill and often kill civilians in error. I certainly understand how something like that can happen because you never know with the way society is now which suspect is going to try to kill you (the cop) or which suspect is of no danger to you.

As for the guy that's critical of grammar. It shouldn't matter whether the deceased friend has an education beyond kindergarten they still have a right to speak out and be heard and address the issues in their community. YOU don't have to have a college degree to stand up for yourself or someone you love or care about and speak out on their behalf. In fact, many people with college degrees can't spell that's why there is spell check. Obviously your conversation with that person was entertaining enough for you if you kept responding...Checkmate! Pow Pow

My condolences to the gentleman's family, friends, and love ones. May his soul rest forever in peace. With God there are no endings, only endless beginnings. May the Lordís precious promises bring you strength for today and hope for tomorrow. I also pray that God comfort your hearts and bless you with endearing memories that your heart will always treasure.

With deepest sympathy

A person critical of others should be ready to take criticism especially if they haven't mastered standardized English and resort to profane words to express their thoughts. Bless your little heart.
