    Saying it always exists doesn't help much either, bub. Duke lacrosse didn't bring us closer, Tawanna Brawley didn't bring us closer, the kids in the football stand that got expelled didn't bring us closer, Ferguson didn't bring us closer. The list goes on and on....

    breaking a guys spine in half is not Tawanna Brawley. You know why you conservatives have to keep bringing up the same two examples? Because they are the only two you have.

    You mean Ferguson where the police force, court system and government were found to be filled with racists? That Ferguson?

    Hint - Symbolism OK, metaphors not OK. So, one may say that someone is acting like a whining female dog. And, one may not say that that someone is a whining female dog. But never with F-bombs or similarly colorful expressions that.

    So if I say that statements being made sound like those that would come from an obtuse heartless worm, that would be okay. BTW Steve-o threw the first low blow.

  • See? She's all **** that the media isn't covering "the real story." But if you don't control the narrative, the press will do it for you.

    You guys want the story of Freddie gray covered, but that won't happen until the streets are clear. And it's quite obvious that the Baltimore PD is not going to hand the protesters a gift like pointing sniper rifles at protesters.

    Yeah that was the wrong article. Too much whiny white guilt even for me.

    This is what I meant to post.

    That's four.

    I was referring to the Ferguson that exploded because the population was told that an evil racist white cop shot a cuddle bear called Big Mike in the back while he was running away with his hands up.

    Empathy runs two ways, I have a lot more empathy for Wilson for having his life destroyed doing his job than I do for Brown. Push around a storeowner half your size, fight with a cop, try to take his gun, you make your own bed.

    This isn't just about Gray getting his spine severed. Anyone that thinks this is just about him is as dumb as those rocks the punks are throwing.

    If he is such a horrible person, tell us why was he not in prison? All of those things carry 10 year sentences. So if he was ever actually guilty of any of them he would not be on the street. Sounds more to me like he has an excellent excuse for running from officers that had it out for him.

    You are such a whiner and illiterate. I did not call you racist. But you are blind or naive if you do not think that a white kid would have not been given the benefit of the doubt if he was playing with the same toy.

    Get real, the kid was reaching for what appeared to be a gun.
    When I was a kid I had one of these and would run around our local park pointing at imaginary bad guys and pretending to shoot them all the time. In your world I would be dead by now.

    Try again.

    If I were black was about the cops not you. But then again admitting mistakes was never your thing.

  • Sure...the white kid in Encino up in the hills dressed in khaki's and a polo.

    A white kid in East Hollywood dressed in a hoodie with jeans hanging below his ****? He's probably dead.

    Do we know what actually happened to Gray? Was he tackled?

    No one knows yet. He gets taken in, something happens, and his spinal cord gets severed. He later dies as a result.

    Not to belabor this conversation, but if you sat where I sit, you would see that the threat of a federal lawsuit acts as a strong deterrent to police misconduct.

    Probably not in prison for the same reason a lot of people aren't in prison. The places are full so people get off with a lesser charge unless they are a bigger threat to society.

    The officers didn't have it out for him. His criminal record indicates he brought it upon himself to be watched by the cops.

  • I know this is supposed to be some awesome zinger. What is it?
  • 107 people between 2011 and 2014 settled cases with Baltimore PD for allegations of police brutality, unlawful attention and false arrest.

    This would seem like a lot. On the other hand, 36,000 crimes were reported in Baltimore over the same period (not mentioned). Any guess what percentage of reported crimes might lead to arrests?

    You claim lawsuits are a deterrent. Well here we have evidence that maybe they aren't.
