    Looked to me like he tried to fishtail AWAY from the kid because his car turns to the right after the engine rev. I’m guessing he knew the rear end was going to hit him so he gunned it in an attempt to swing the back end away from the kid. That explains the rev and the direction change. Guys that drive 200 mph on an oval with other cars inches away for a living don’t “misjudge” where something is when they are only going 25 mph.

    Couldn’t you just plug the charger into a Currant bush?

    They are going to blamed for everything regardless of these videos. In addition, the terrorists will soon learn that all they have to do to keep a target safe, is to position people around it. They need to light up the entire neighborhood. The fewer civilians left to accuse them of targeting civilians…the better.

    blue–Cops get killed when “a subject touches them” in holding cells while they are surrounded by multiple other armed officers? I must claim ignorance on that also. There are WAAYYYY TOO MANY of these assaults BY law enforcement officers caught on camera. How often does it occur off camera? My guess is that it occurs at unprecedented levels because LE knows that 99% of the time, it will be considered “justified”. In the majority of the videos, it is obvious to anybody with eyes that the subject is not “resisting” anything, but 17 cops continue to crucify the person while yelling “stop resisting, stop resisting!” You know it, and we know it but you aren’t willing to have an honest conversation about it, so this is all a waste of time. I’ll stop typing so you can go beat the hell out of an elderly woman with your night stick and then taze her for “resisting arrest”. Those damn elderly jaywalkers!

    “They were thinking the hotel was abandoned and closed” the hotel manager said.– Even if it was, somebody still OWNS it meaning it’s the private property of an individual or a bank. What gives them the right to just take over somebody’s private property?

    LibSoc—An agenda is a plan or goal. The GLBT community by definition MUST have an agenda because their beliefs of “marriage” have not been socially acceptable at any point in the history of the world. The “Christian right”, as you call them is actually the vast majority of the entire world (left/right, Christian/non-Christian). We believe that marriage has a definition, and that definition does not include gay marriage. There is no agenda (plan or goal) because marriage has ALWAYS been defined as between 1 male and 1 female. Deal with it.

    If they have “accomplished roads”, why are they pushing for a 12 cent raise of the gas tax to fix roads (16 cents for me with a diesel)?

    I like it better. My problem is with the “search” box on top. Since they changed it, I can’t type a single letter in it, much less search for an article. I have tried on multiple computers all to no avail.

    “This place is the worst run government office in the entire United States.” No, it isn’t. That would be 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

    When I’m in the mood for metal, it doesn’t get much better than Metallica and they put on a great show. They just moved a notch higher for me.

    NO, the NRA does not have any studies. That includes the link to you posted about NRA-ILA news items. Do you know how to read? Those aren’t studies about gun violence or any other gun related STUDY. I have never seen a study (comprehensive or otherwise) performed by them…..nor did I ever reference them. Of course they report stats FROM studies. I’m still waiting on one single applicable link from you from a study that shows the parameters of how they obtained data. You STILL haven’t addressed ONE SINGLE THING I have brought up. Nice try using my PARTIAL quote to once again misrepresent the facts. I also referenced the FBI and DOJ studies and those are the ONLY links I posted for you to address. You keep saying that defending your position is a waste of time…..I happen to agree. You can’t do it so you just use ad hominem attacks. I apologize for embarrassing you. Educate yourself.

    muscles–yeah, good point I AM the type of person that only listens to the freaking govt published statistics. You’re insane. I posted not one single thing from the NRA…only you did. I also didn’t link to any CDC stats although I did reference their name. Nice job avoiding all of the points I actually brought up. Congrats on also posting all of those “links to multitudes of studies, reaching back decades, from multiple sources that all show similar statistics”. I assume you are well aware of the methods they use to obtain their “results” and also aware that you will be humbled after posting them. I’m sure it’s difficult defending disingenuous viewpoints and referencing obviously faulty studies, maybe you should move on over to the dailykos or huffpo where the posters are all brain dead and won’t hassle you.

    Your initial statement—”Epidemic: Guns kill twice as many kids as cancer does.”
    #1 childhood cancers comprise LESS THAN 1% of all cancers according to #2 roughly 2000 children (age 10-15) die from cancer each year (varies quite a bit though) #3 according to the FBI, 563 people under the AGE OF 18 were murdered.
    It seems your statement is false. Also, remember that murder includes ALL types of weapons including fists, cars, knives, bats, chairs, and everything else. It also includes 3 more years of age. This info can be found in table 9 of the fbi’s unified crime report.

    Start with this one from the Bureau of Justice (not to be confused with the NRA)which shows that gun violence has been DECREASING annually for over 20 years. FBI also shows the same .

    Here’s another about accidental deaths (also not from the NRA)

  • June 6, 2014 at 9:19am

    Aunt Muscles
    Yes, please post some of those studies which you claim don’t use misleading stats so we can neatly destroy them with facts provided by the CDC, FBI, and recent DOJ studies. The NRA doesn’t have any studies and I never referenced them…you did, so I’m not sure what you’re talking about (neither are you). Make sure to post links that also tell the parameters used in the study, not just a list of bulleted quotations from another ignorant idiot gun-control advocate.

    Articles like that, and the “stats” contained in them, are written for people who are too lazy/ignorant to look up the truth or aren’t interested in the truth. Take a look at the FBI uniformed crime report or on the CDC website. Organizations with an agenda such as Brady campaign, mayors against guns, etc often times consider “kids” as adults well in their 20′s so a 19 yr old inner-city gang banger or drug dealer that shoots somebody for being on his “turf” has just killed/injured a “child”. They also frequently include a “kid” that is shot by an officer or homeowner during the commission of a crime…who deserve to be shot! It would require a 30 page essay to address all of the misleading stats contained in this garbage article. Do some honest research before making such stupid comments.

    “…researchers from Scotland’s University of St. Andrews ….” My guess is 1. none 2. Scottish professors. Enjoy (by reading) an article that’s non-political for a change.

    According to the lawsuit, police chief Dan Oates “publicly defended the officers’ actions and affirmed” that they acted in accordance with policy.

    That’s ALWAYS the default response when questioned about wrongdoing by L E. Of course there’s no chance the policy could be written/interpreted poorly. Instead, anybody that questions the freaking policy is considered the problem.

    Unalian: That still doesn’t make sense. 2.1 billion .01 bitcoins is still the equivalent of 21 million bitcoins. Still a cap! Same thing with the dollar except it is only divisible 100 times (pennies). If there was a cap at 21 dollars, you could also have 2100 pennies and the sum is exactly the same. The only difference is that bitcoin can be divided infinitely….even though the SUM is exactly the same. All of this is based off the premise that .01 bitcoins is worth 1/100 of a bitcoin (or whatever the fraction. Just like 100 pennies = 1 dollar NOT 100 dollars.
