The Kurds, and the rest of the people in regions like Rojava (sp?) are the kind of people we want in the Middle East. That we are not supporting them is criminal. They are completely libertarian in their belief system. In fact, more like our Founding Fathers than we are. And they are actually fighting ISIS and WINNING!
So it makes perfect sense that Obama and the US are going to aid Turkey in bombing them.
Exactly, well said, Adin! Meanwhile, Erdogan's own daughter has set up a hospital to treat the wounded IS. This is all smoke and mirrors. Turkey's main goal was to bomb the Kurds, using IS as an excuse. Turkey supports ISIS in nearly every way possible. People joining ISIS fly into Turkey. Time to wipe turkey off the menu.

Why can’t I mouth off to police? Don’t I have that right? In fact, don’t I have that right, without the expectation that I’ll have to pay for it with jail time? Isn’t this a supposed to be a free nation? Or are we all supposed to shut up and do as our masters tell us?
Ask yourself if the Founding Fathers would be so willing to bend for authority.
BTW: Look up Rodriguez v. United States where it was decided that police are not allowed to arbitrarily extend traffic stops. Which is what this cop did. She was trying to sign her citation and he didn’t like her cigarette so he escalated. Maybe she did kill herself, but she wasn’t supposed to even be in there in the first place.
And I will always say, contrary to the race baiters, that this isn’t a race problem, it’s a state vs us problem.

So, I’m not seeing in there where I demonized every anything. Just admonished the Blaze in the way that they couched this story.
Was the woman sick? Perhaps. Did she commit suicide? Maybe. But there are questions to be answered about the police conduct in this case. Again,I ask not because of the woman’s race, but because the ever increasing, as you stated, militarization of the police, and corruption.
And the way the story was written, using words like “unfounded”, is just more of the Blazes attempt to destroy the story, not by fact, but by corrupt manipulation.
And by reading most of the comments on here, the readership took the bait and responded as conditioned.

Way to cloud the issue, Blaze. Take a credible story, couch it in the dumb @ssery of trash like K. Kardashian, and all your simple minded, rabid neocon readers will completely miss the point.
You know, about the police state we are living in. The over reach of government on all levels. And the would be complete collapse of government tyranny if it wern’t for their beloved, heroes, the police to beat us into submission.
This story has little to do about race, if you look objectively. It’s about the state vs. all of us.
But, go on hating on K. Kardashian because that’s the real important problem facing us today. Sheeple.
The Harris County ME did the autopsy, not Waller County. Watch the dash-cam arrest, read the autopsy report, look at the admittance forms. Then make your own judgement. Way too many times "celebrities" jump in and stir the pot only to find out they are as ignorant as the rest of the masses because they don't read. As to what KK tweeted, she never displayed that much common sense anyway. She is after all a celebrity not a Doctor, how they hell would she know?
Oh yes, because everything under the sun is a conspiracy and everyone's out to get you.
Look, I'm not saying that the growing problem of police militarization isn't alarming, or that we shouldn't be concerned with statism in general, but you can't demonize every single police officer out there just because it happens to fit your narrative.
Good comment other than the info wars style rant. Still a good point. This woman hung in a jail cell is a serious story but dressing in the fat a$$ boob chick background renders it rather pointless.
I doubt the cops killed but but really the question I have is what the hell was ANY person, regardless of their "attitude" doing in freakin' jail for a minor traffic violation? Come on. What is that about? I really don't care if she dropped her pants and told to cop to kiss her a$$ it is just incredible to me that a person could be locked up for not using her signal light and being snotty to the cop. I get it that the situation escalated after she got the ticket but really that seems to me to be the officer's fault. Defuse the situation and walk away. I don't see where this "lady" (okay that is a stretch) did anything beside just being a douche-bag. Really having a crappy attitude towards a law officer is not a crime. So WHY was she in jail for three days? THREE DAYS! Wholly cow that is crazy. Remind me not to drive through that town. Waller County TX looks like a really good place to avoid. This cop needs to be fired and charged with abuse and unlawful death. Sick. Seriously sick.

I’m going to agree with you Proud, about the vets being a quiet threat. More like the sleeping giant.
But the flag statement of yours, is appalling. It’s a SYMBOL of our liberty. To our founders, it was our LIBERTY that was sacred. Not the flag. I bet, with all the BS we put up with today in the form of our imperial government and evil dictator Obama, Thomas Jefferson would hold a flag burning rally himself. Especially if it were made illegal.

I regret my earlier days of cheering on the invasion in Iraq and removal of Saddam Hussein. Same as I winced when we deposed Quadaffi. Let these secular tyrants stay in power. God forbid we do something to Iran. The devil you know…

I’m surprised no one else has even mentioned it yet.
She's pretty in the way that many young women are...
....but I wouldn't say she is "hot"....
well are you male or female or does it matter?

Didn’t even read the article, did you?
And it’s spelled pedophile.

Children are innocent unconsenting victims.
What two consenting adults do is nothing even comparable. If they infect someone knowingly, there’s already laws against that and they deal with them accordingly. Plenty of straight people infect others as well. So, I take it you want to arrest gay people, just for being gay? How about you arrest straight people for fornication while you’re at it.
Nothing compares to the rape of a child, which must be the most heinous crime of all.
Then how' about the 8 year old child that was "Twerking" in the "Gay Pride" Parade last week that belonged to his "Two Fathers"? You know that that kid is going to grow up messed up. And what does that say about the environment that the child is exposed to.

Yay! America is saved. Someone painted a bat patriotically. Phew, I thought we were in real danger there for a bit.
Well I said within 50 years, so it could be less for sure.

The “gotcha” bs is quite tiresome. There are about 318,000 other things we can hang on Obama that’s helped destroy our nation. Whether or not he says “God” is meaningless. Especially since, when he does it’s likely a farce anyhow. Do we really care? Nope, I do not. I want the government off my back and out of our lives. In truth, the President shouldn’t even matter this much to us. He’s supposed to head the Federal Government that deals only with the states and operates on an exceedingly limited scale. That we have what we have now, that’s what we should be worried about. Not whether he hollowly mentions your god or not.
June 17, 2015 at 7:52pm
Still major confusion for me. Why do these articles always use words like “allegedly” or “purports”? Are we expecting this to be CGI? Or some other kind of hoax? I don’t get the special treatment for these particular videos.
Because in the past they have faked videos of atrocities.

US Marine, 1st BN 4th Marines. Seven years total.
The whole point of the 1st Amendment is to protect speech we normally cannot stomach because we all have speech that’s not acceptable to someone else. You preserve liberty only by defending the liberties of others that you do not agree with.
The moment the US government, or any other government, passes a law against desecrating the “American Flag”, that flag is then elevated above individual liberty (the entire reason we have a USA in the first place) and becomes a symbol of tyranny. It’s the moment I go out and burn my own American flags.
I don't know whether or not Mr,Pierce had any of that (or much of what was said here) running through his mind, as he watched someone do something cowardly and purposely disrespectful. But I still honor his actions. He made a choice, acted on it, and within understanding has abided by the consequences of that choice. Totally and completely understandable, as well as totally and completely worthy of everyone's respect. He did not permanently injure or kill anyone (I'd say the level of violence was appropriate to the other's act). He did not try to evade the repercussions nor equivocate in an attempt to garner leniency or clemency. But he left no one doubting the level of his outrage and commitment. Sometimes one must run afoul of the Law to protect the ethical base of it's origins and the meaning of it's existence.

I’m not a “righty”, nor a Cruz supporter but, I’ll admit that your comment was classy and well played.
