There’s something I find a little sad and pathetic about a police officer suing over trauma. In general, these trauma lawsuits are just a get-rich-quick scheme. But it’s especially lame for a police officer to do it since it seems trauma is part of the job description. Had this guy never seen a cop show? It seems to me that a cop who’s such a delicate little flower that he’d be traumatized by doing his duty should be looking for a new line of work, not a legal settlement.
With your thought process we should expect cops to die in LOD and think its acceptable
Why shouldn't a cop receive remuneration for his trauma? The victim's family always get paid for what their stupid offspring did, and that's for trauma.

“We just want you to go back, to tell other stupid women like you what happened,” she recalled to the BBC the hitmen telling her. “You must learn something: you people get a chance to go overseas for a better life. But the money you are earning, the money the government gives to you, you use it for killing each other!”
Holy hell, this is one of the most staggering quotes I’ve read in a long time. Quite an amazing level of insight and wisdom coming from a hitman. This quote should be sent to every BLM idiot, to Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, to every black person who bellyaches about past slavery and how horrible and oppressive and racist America is. And especially to every black person who dresses like some African queen and acts as though they think their “motherland” is some kind of Garden of Eden. Yeah, slavery was bad, we get that. But these people should be thanking their lucky stars that their ancestors were taken away from the hell hole of Africa. From the sound of it, this hitman probably would’ve preferred that his ancestors had been American slaves.
One thing is for sure, this hitman seems to have a more realistic view of the black experience in America than the BLM clowns do.

Liberals whine about the cost of this investigation, but the cost of the years-long John Doe investigation into Scott Walker and his administration was money well spent. It’s so amusing the ways liberals pick and choose when to give a hoot about costs to taxpayers.

“A lot of people go there. Plus people are not allowed to carry guns in church”
There it is, proof positive that gun-free zones attract violent criminals. An outright admission that this church was a target because the shooter knew nobody would be packing. Once again, the liberal viewpoint is debunked by reality.
Plus he'd have the added bonus of getting the gun control freaks more fired up because of course he would use a gun in the attack and there would be additional calls to get guns out everybody's hands.
Shannon watts had no comment on your post.
Not true. In TX, people ARE allowed to be armed in church.

I understand in theory what you’re saying, how the interactive quality of a video game can immerse the player in the environment and story in a way that a movie or book cannot. However, the question is, why would anyone want to? In most cases, with video games, players want that level of immersion so they can feel like they’re a warrior out battling the forces of evil, or feel like they’re exploring the creepy, zombie-infested mansion. But why would anyone want to feel like they’re losing a child to cancer? I just don’t see any audience for this. It’s like they think they’re making the Citizen Kane of video games, and in the process forgetting that people play games because they’re fun.

But why is it even necessary to raise awareness about cancer? Everyone is aware of it. Everyone probably at least knows someone who’s had it. I think there’s probably very few people who have not, at least on some level, experienced the horror of cancer. I’ve had several friends and family members who’ve dealt with cancer, and a couple who died from it. Probably most people have. I don’t need someone else sharing their experiences with me in video game form to be aware of cancer, and quite frankly I am baffled at the mindset of anyone who’d feel it necessary to share their cancer experience with the world in video game form.
Besides all that, whenever someone says “raise awareness” the cynic in me always hears it as “solicit contributions.”

“I think we may look back at this game and see this as a touch point, a moment of rethinking what people can do with interactivity.”
Odd thing to say about a game with intentionally limited interactivity. But it’s liberalism incarnate, patting one’s self on the back for caring. Seeing success in terms of intentions rather than results. No, odds are we won’t be looking back on this game ever, because it’s unlikely to ever have an audience. Even if it were a masterpiece of visual beauty and emotional resonance, and it does at least from the preview look like more of an artistic achievement than dreck like Depression Quest or Revolution 60, they’re pushing it into a marketplace that doesn’t want it. Nobody plays games for their educational or therapeutic value, they play games to have fun. Yet here they are already talking about this thing being some watershed moment in gaming, when the probable reality is 99.99% of the gaming market won’t be aware that it ever even existed.

Was Milo Yiannopoulos on of the terrorist accounts they suspended?

I wouldn’t be surprised to see some BLM idiots out rioting because they think Michael Brown was shot and killed a second time. They just won’t leave that brother alone!
I really don’t know what happened to Ryan. As a Wisconsinite, I’ve been watching his career for years and years, and for many of those years he was up in my top 3 favorite politicians. The guy used to stand for something. It’s such a disappointment to see him as he is now. Either he’s become completely corrupt with power, or he’s become a totally spineless [insert female genitalia euphemism here]. Sad really.
Oh how I'd love to see him imagine it as Mohammad. The skit would be funny, and the news would be full of the aftermath moments for days, weeks, and months. They don't have the stomach to mock Islam, even while pretending not to fear it.
balthazor, non-sequitur. but sure, here is a pat-on-the-back for not shooting anyone today.
Isn't this the same manbitch who cried over a dead lion?
the joke, you see, is that these candidates are highlighting their christianity. it wouldnt make sense coming from mohammed, because the candidates arent supposed to be followers of mohammed.

A whole lot of comments appear to have vanished since last night.
Yes. We can talk about taking it out of your pants but we can't suggest putting it back in. That's offensive and bigotted.

Every time I see the headline I see Zima instead of Zika. I’m not sure which would be worse.
February 2, 2016 at 6:56pm
Oh god that’s funny. Yeah I’m sure the reason women get abortions is because they’re thinking of someone besides themselves. It’s empathy that would cause people like Fredrick Brennan and countless others to never live. That just makes so much sense.
February 2, 2016 at 6:45pm
Oh I see, you lectured me after doing the exact same thing rather than before. Yeah that totally makes you less of a hypocrite.
And I explained what my purpose was (and you’d lose that $20), if you can’t read then that’s not my problem.
February 2, 2016 at 6:30pm
What the hell are you even talking about? Timing? How is timing relevant to anything?

Fredrick Brennan, the founder of 8Chan, has osteogenesis imperfecta, or brittle bone disease. The guy’s body looks the size of a Cabbage Patch Kid, he’s broken bones 120 times before the age of 19. I bet if you asked him, he’d prefer to be alive than dead.
Or consider another guy, maybe you’ve heard of him, Stephen Hawking. ALS has left him a total physical wreck. But I bet if you asked him, he’d probably prefer to be alive too.

The point, wildtalents, is that BabyParts is the very same user who lectured me for wedging gay sex into the article, then turned around and wedged abortion into the article. Most people call that hypocrisy.

You missed Bird Flu, Swine Flu, Mad Cow, and don’t forget about the African Killer Bees.
Yeah, like you wouldn’t try to shove that shoe on whether it fits or not.
Everybody knows that many STDs transfer more readily via homosexual “relations” as a result of the anal cavity providing a more direct path to the bloodstream than a vagina does. This is a big factor in why HIV is still dramatically more likely to be contracted through homosexual activity.
So what I was getting at is precisely what Bub47 is referring to, that if this was indeed a homosexual relationship, then the AP is sacrificing the accuracy of the story for the sake of political correctness. If indeed this virus passes more readily through anal sex than other sexual activity, that’s probably a fact that the public would want to know.
But yeah, go ahead and think that I just hate gay people if that makes you happy and fits with your worldview.
