Agreement reached on future of Jesus portrait in Jackson ...

Boils down to this. Taxpayer dollars are being used to subsidize religion (providing facilities for the club and for display of the picture.) Take it to a church, where it belongs. (There, of course, is another taxpayer subsidy, but we'll talk about that later.)  (Jul 25, 2013 | post #66)

I wonder how much gun industry contributed to Obama. Their investment paid off!  (Jul 22, 2013 | post #6406)

Christmas in August for gun business if Zim acquitted.  (Jul 5, 2013 | post #4620)

Teen wants apology after officer pulls gun

Except I just happened to flag down a policeman; it was daytime; and I never gave thought to pursuing the guy. Not really comparable.  (Jul 5, 2013 | post #12)

The George Zimmerman Case!

I really think chances are, at best, 50-50 on GZ although I hope he gets what's coming to him. Prosecutors overcharged him. Should have been manslaughter.  (Jul 1, 2013 | post #4401)

Free George Zimmerman!

Despite believing GZ is guilty, dispatcher should have given stronger instructions. "We don't need you to do that." Just, exactly, what does that "instruction " mean? My wife doesn't "need me" to carry out the trash tonight. Tomorrow will be just fine. Instructions from dispatcher were unclear.  (Jul 1, 2013 | post #8145)

Teen wants apology after officer pulls gun

Some of these stop and frisk incidents have turned out to be driven by a police quota system, FYI.  (Jul 1, 2013 | post #8)

Except you won't be laughing, you'll be crying all the way to the bank to withdraw more money to pay your taxes. Who do you think will pay for the redevelopment of the torched inner cities (assuming the conflagration is limited there?)  (Jun 30, 2013 | post #4268)

And, just where is it you think he will be walking? Down Cleveland Avenue on a warm Saturday night?  (Jun 30, 2013 | post #4266)

Report: Rail line could create 26,000 jobs

Ohioans have already said no to something like this. A sink hole of money for consultants and "studies. " Americans are NOT going to give up the convenience and privacy of their cars to conform to rail schedule. Don't forget, it's not like the old days when commerce was centered downtown near the rail station. Much, like in Columbus, have moved out to suburbia and outerbelts, thus leaving you with transportation needs when dumped off by the train. With GPS, you have help driving the city even if you have never been there. Nip this in the bud before more billions are wasted on another Ghost Train.  (Jun 30, 2013 | post #2)

No acquital for GZ. He'll take one for his country. I'd almost be patriotic and plead guilty if I were him and death penalty is off the table. Be almost heroic compared to the grief we'd face if, by some weirdness, he gets an acquital. Would need close protection in prison though.  (Jun 30, 2013 | post #4261)

Teen wants apology after officer pulls gun

I'm surprised the officers did not apologize to him on the spot and explain to him what was going on. That would be good police, community relations. I, myself, reported a man to an officer I flagged down because he did not "fit" in the neighborhood. Yes, he was black. The police shortly found out he was a member of a construction crew. Advice I always hear is to report people, and vehicles, who look suspicious and out of place; unfortunately, those suspicions can be race based but I don't consider myself a racist. It just caught my attention the man was in the neighborhood and there have been some recent incidents. I would assume dispatchers would not even bother sending units out on these calls if they didn't feel they were important. So, I think the young man should get an apology, perhaps from the chief himself. With the student's talents, perhaps this encounter would lead him to an interest in a career in law enforcement. That would be a great outcome. As for the officers, they don't have the superhuman ability to instantly define situations. Sometimes it takes a while to put the pieces together, get the stories straight, and do the right thing. 99 percent of the time they are, amazingly, quite capable of doing this. In this instance, maybe things could have been handled differently. I'm just glad it did not escalate.  (Jun 30, 2013 | post #1)

I will say I think GZ was overcharged. Manslaughter would have been more appropriate and should have been filed by the police that night, then we wouldn't be in this mess. We'll see how it works out, but this could present problems for the jury.  (Jun 30, 2013 | post #4257)

GZ chose to put himself in a hazardous situation by carrying a gun, knowing full well the limits of his authority under Neighborhood Watch. He knew, of course, he had no authority to be following people, asking them questions, e.t.c. This is what police officers do. As for the settlement the Martin family got, the defendants got off with a bargain because they would have been hammered for multi-millions in front of a jury and the insurance company knew it. I applaud the Martin family for accepting this reasonable settlement to try to turn down the volume on this case a little. GZ will be sacrificed for the greater good, that of keeping our cities from burning down. A great lesson for the vigilante cult. Maybe next time these cop wannabes will be more careful.  (Jun 30, 2013 | post #4256)
