You are correct. The numbers are absolute and incapable of lying.
It is also true however, that the numbers get lied about and misarrainged for promotion of cause.
Well allow me to shake your hand-on this website it is rare to see someone actually rethink what they thought.

I couldn't help thinking about how we approach the deaths of black men, and boys. There was Michael Brown, a young thug, a petty thief, celebrated by the President, the AG, carried by 6 white Marine pall bearers at his funeral, after hundreds of black thugs burned, and looted. Then there was the 9 year old, dead in Chicago, shot in the back, and laying dead in a back yard. Killed by black gangbangers. The President didn't mention him, no mention of his name. Jesse, and Al ignored his funeral. He was a good boy. No criminal acts in his past. But he is just as dead. His name was Antonio Smith Junior. He was loved, and he will be missed.

Sir the point I made illustrated the viewpoint he presented were not in fact absolute and for someone like you appearing to be knowledgeable I would assume server that you would've recognize that.
Correct me if I'm wrong but having a Black president does not constitute ruling America. Clearly the president is restricted to what Congress and the law will allow him to do or perhaps someday in the future a Mrs. president.
Guantanamo prisoner transfer for Bowe Bergdahl violated laws, review finds
By Josh Hicks August 21

The Obama administration broke the law when it exchanged five Taliban commanders for a captured U.S. soldier without giving Congress 30 days notice, according to a review by the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office.

The GAO released its opinion on Thursday, saying the Defense Department violated the Defense Appropriations Act by failing to inform lawmakers about its plan to transfer prisoners from Guantanamo Bay in a controversial deal to secure the release of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.

Yes, Mr. Brown's friends and family will miss him.

Dear, please read up about the history and issues - past and present - which have made the killing of Mr. Brown "different" than other shootings that happen in our gun violent culture. Of course this victim was unarmed and up against an armed cop.

Get back to us, when you have figured it out.

Why don't you explain how a dead thug is so much more worthy of respect then a good boy from a good family? I doubt there is any culture that celebrates the criminals among them.

People can believe their own views, people can believe they are telling the truth when they are not.

If one can only see their point of view then they most of all are likely to be the ones who cannot recognize the truth.

Adolf Hitler thought he was telling the truth.

Pastor Jim Jones thought he was telling the truth.

And the list goes on.
Yes, and many thought Obama was telling the truth. Big mistake for sure.

So what you're saying is an unarmed person is incapable of causing serious bodily harm or death?

What makes this "different" is that Brown attacked one of our police officers. When you attack a police officer, you deserve anything you get.

We have all been stopped at one time or another by an officer of the law. Unless we are guilty of something serious we answer the officers questions respectfully, and go on our way. Michael Brown didn't know what Officer Wilson wanted, but he suspected it was about the robbery he had just committed. He was taught his behavior, he taunted the officer, he challenged the officer, and in the end he attacked, then charged an officer of the law. That is not normal behavior.

He was unarmed, unarmed. Ask the store clerk if that mattered when he stole from him. He didn't have a gun or knife. He had 6'4", 300 lb of brute force. That IS armed. Mr. Brown was not a child, probably hadn't been for years, despite his age.

People think that because blacks have no respect for authority and they are naturally violent, everybody else should have to compromise.

It's not just the disparity of treatment that Obama and his pal Holder practice between the deaths of White people and the Africans. Since Obama became the nations' first African president, thousands of unarmed White women, White children and White men have been put to death at the hands of the Africans. Countless other White people suffer lifelong disability as a result of violent unprovoked attacks by the Africans.

In the case of the Ferguson strong armed robber who was killed while he was in the process of violently attacking a White policeman, Obama and Holder offered sympathetic condolences to his mother. I may have missed it, but I haven't heard of these two Africans ever offering any sympathy to the many thousands of grieving White mothers whose unarmed White children were killed or maimed by his fellow Africans that Obama represents.

What I'd like to know is the 'double standard' here. This 280/300 lb garbage can was supposed to be a suspect in a murder, according to the information found on him. So, say he did kill someone, who was probably black and a thug also. How are the friends and relatives of that one that was killed supposed to look at Brown? Are they supposed to be rioting alongside all the other municipal monkeys too? You know what I mean? Brown killed someone and that's ok? He gets killed and the monkeys start throwing their feces all over the place. I guess this only makes sense to blacks.

Whites being killed by blacks doesn't matter to the black population. They're just a one sided race. And 'their, not my' president is doing a very good job in dividing the country. Blacks and whites against each other, Hispanics, whites and blacks against each other, I'm surprised Obama left out the Chinese and other orientals. And notice how all the attention is focused on Ferguson and not much is being said on ISIS and the other Muslim nations that are plotting against us, nor the ones coming over the boarder in the southwest. And how many of these alleged Hispanics sneaking over the boarder are really Saudis' and Iranians? Ever think of that one? Naw! They wouldn't do nothing like that.

That's not the only photos they put out. Obviously you are a little behind in the case. Come back when you know a little. The pos smeared himself when he robbed and assaulted a store clerk and police officer. Now there are reports Brown was involved in a murder. We are waiting for confirmation.

You see, SOME folks understand firearms and mathematics while some folks do not. You sir belong to the second set of folks.
The weapon in question can contain a certain number of rounds in that particular .40 cal weapon. The total number of rounds it contained minus the number of rounds reported to have been discharged equals the number of undischarged rounds still in the weapon. That means the weapon was NOT completely devoid (that means empty) of live rounds sir.
It is actually a really simple thing to grasp for those who value ... and received an education of the three Rs sir.
That one is a special kind of stupid. That went right over their head. Wait for an ignorant reply?
