yes, the kid was being a jerk . . . not sure why kids seem to challenge police so much . . . but he certainly did not deserve to be killed over this. the cop did not have to shoot this kid. it sounded like he requested back up assistance . . . he should have waited for it to arrive before trying to get the kid out of the car. and if 3 other drivers flashed their lights at him, he knew something was amiss and the kid was probably doing the same thing. the cop was being arrogant in flexing all the muscle he had. the kid was being arrogant in refusing to comply. this did not have to happen.
The cop had admitted he knew his headlights were misaligned. He was using it as an excuse to pull anyone over anyone who dared to flash him for it. He was basically pissed off because he was tired of getting flashed by other drivers. The kid knowing he hadn't broken the law rightfully was suspicious of the cop's trumped up excuse to pull him over. His inexperience as a youth as to what to do under the circumstances played a role in the escalation of force, but the cop was the one who started it. The youth was passively resisting the questionable traffic stop and not threatening the cop in any way. Instead of escalating the force, he should have waited for backup to defuse the situation.

Perhaps Melissa Harris-Perry might actually be caucasian . . .
the officer never asked the first woman for her name . . . and since it appears that each woman has a different take on what happened, i think the officer should have gotten the names of both or neither.
Preferably neither since they're apparently not required to give it. Officer even admitted there was no crime. I have no idea what this guy was thinking.
She probably gave her name to the dispatcher she spoke to on the phone. I am surprised no one else came to this conclusion.
he a;ready had her name in the original call. the dispatcher would have got it.
The officer said there was no sign of a crime being committed.
Therefore the second woman was correct in questioning if she had to give info to the officer. She was not suspected of a crime and the police had no legal right to question or detain her.
Learn to read ! The first lady didn't get into a " feud " with the school employee. The first lady wasn't the cause of the problem and the policeman was not finished with the investigation. You people are AMAZING !
And after watching 12 minutes of a several hour event you are absolutely sure that he never went back and got the name of the person who called 911? He never went back and got the name of the person who asked for the report to be made? All you see is him asking for the name of the most likely flight risk first........did you think this all the way through?
WE DO NOT EVEN KNOW IF THERE WERE TWO SEPARATE INCIDENTS
It is obvious that the COPs just wanted to beat up or even shoot some helpless Black women. They did not care anything she said. The COPs admitted on camera which is a act of perjury that they saw what they admitted to the white women what they never saw. Fire them, take their guns, their badge and arrest them for attempted homicide of the the unborn.

i have a daughter in high school who will begin to look at colleges next year. i’ve started keeping a list of schools who have professors like this one. there is no way on this green earth that one dollar of our money will be going to any college or university on that list. i urge others to do the same.
Sorry, but it looks like your daughter won't be going to a college/university next year if this is what you are looking at.

I agree with “polyglot” another waste of money . . . just how many 8-month term babies were actually born during the two weeks the Olympics were held? And an entire study is based upon this?

Good for him! Also, I’m glad to see successful fundraisers being held for folks like him and the other guy in the same situation. Giving others the chance to recognize and support their cause is a good thing! We need to take care of each other. And no, I’m not a liberal . . .

someone had to have set up the whole system for her . . . . want to bet whoever did also had a program installed that copied everything? just having a separate email account/server was dicey. and whoever set it up had to have a way of getting himself out of the mess that was sure to happen whenever it all came apart. chances are everything was being duplicated. eventually, someone’s going to sing . . .
You think that the State Department IT department did not know that this server was being set up and approved it? They might have even recommended the hardware and software. What do they care since it is up to the individual person as to what emails are backed up, they do not do it automatically like most businesses do. Think technology from the 80's or 90's.
Amerimom actually i read it was setup for BILL. She bullied his IT crew into adding private email accounts (plural) for her to use thinking she would have complete control over the whole thing. somewhere there is an angry IT guy and he may already be seeking asylum in russia with backup tapes.
Yeah. I think some IT guy has a get of jail card, stashed away in some PO Box, or Bus transit locker, or elsewhere to provide to the FEDs with the door gets busted down.

have there been any interviews with the pilot who flew with lubitz to spain?

a good way to choke . . . literally inhaling food . . . hope no kids are watching this . . . or other so-called adults
Kids don't do things like this, they inhale other stuff, like talcum powder.

I’m not defending Cosby in any way, but one has to wonder just how many other men were doing this during the 70s and 80s. Hollywood is well-known for its “casting couch” . . . I seriously doubt he was the only one doing this. So the question is . . . Is Cosby being targeted and why now?
All he needs to do is wear a “I can’t Breathe” t-shirt, wear his pants around his knees, cry on an Oprah special, denounce whitey, and all would be forgiven
If you study enough of the NWO conspiracy you would realize Cosby told black people to pull up their pants and grow up. That's a big no, no by those within the CIA who manufactured hip hop culture, feminism and propped somebody like Al Sharpton as being a unelected leader of the black community because he's a provocateur agent. Of course hollywood is filled with this type of behavior but it's only allowed if you don't anger those in charge of Project Mockingbird trying to manipulate blacks in general to destroy themselves.

 October 16, 2014 at 9:20pm
this is the first nurse who was infected . . . not the one who flew to cleveland.

a victim of “carelessness” perhaps, but “racism”? not buying it . . .

According to the “Company Ethics” statement on Amaruk’s website, “We embrace diversity and offer our staff and clients a tolerant environment free of harassment and prejudice.” Apparently not!
And “We are also independent from any political influence.” Apparently not!
Saying one thing and doing another . . .

Let’s hope Chase does the right thing and fires him.
Well another thing to consider too is that if you're light like this girl and can do push ups well that will go a long way. Imagine if the marine was as light as she was but kept his strength. But like I said above she is still impressive
AMERIMOM, so why is it wrong to hit a girl if she hits a guy first?
So your daughter is living proof that standards should be the same for women and men.
True, high-achieving athletes like your daughter are harmed by the soft bigotry of low expectations. It's not fair to athletic women like your daughter when standards are lowered so that lesser female athletes are allowed the same status that your daughter rightly deserves.
I'm not hearing women protest this "War On Athletic Women".
