Everything is outcome based. If the suspect had a pistol in his pocket, then the officer made a very poor officer safety decision, but because the suspect was not armed the cop made a good decision.

We are seeing the world fail to respond to religious hate all over. Christians are being killed by Muslims but you would not know it to hear Obama speak. He completely ignores it. He also ignores the growing anti-semitism in Europe. I think his roots in an madrassa are showing through! The world is allowing another holocaust, this one directed at Christians, to begin without lifting a finger!
Ignore it? I think he's possibly responsible for it by funding Isis. There is little doubt which side he's on any longer and it's not the Christians.
Part of their NWO is having muslims do the dirty work of murdering others off only then to turn and exterminate muslims wholesale because muslims will represent a clear and present danger to their own survival.
Why do you refuse to take action?

Then why can’t we install a missile defense system in Poland and the Ukraine? Well, because the CIC is an absolute wimp!
And this is why Obama is surprised by Putin's delay, given that Obama has consistently shown himself to be a doormat for Putin's boots.
You ne0-cons finally have your revenge on Reagan; he ended the Cold War and you start it up again. Nice.

Women want all the bennies but due to a lot of issues don’t or can’t be there all the time and then get pissed because the guys who do show up to work get better evaluations and higher pay. This is not always the case but it happens often. A basic expectation of any manager is that the employee shows up to work.

Off topic, but when are police and sheriff’s departments going to enforce weight rules on their officers?
I noticed the same thing. How is he going to chase someone?

His complaint to the doctor at the hospital was that he was feeling “run down!”

Geraldo is correct. The most the cop can be convicted of is Manslaughter (based upon what we have seen thus far-there may be more to the story that we have not heard). Secondly, let’s look at how this all started. The driver decided to flee from a lawful stop by a police officer. If the suspect had cooperated with the police office, we would not be having this discussion.
When will folks realize that running from the police is bad juju? (I am not justifying what happened just pointing out that in this case like it’s two predecessors [Brown and Garner] the suspects decided to start the ball rolling).

The benefits they are talking about are the CRSC benefits that allow a disabled veteran to collect (if he/she is 10% disabled due to COMBAT related circumstances). The special circumstances that must apply are:
Training that simulates war (e.g., exercises, field training)
Hazardous duty (e.g., flight, diving, parachute duty)
An instrumentality of war (e.g., combat vehicles, weapons, Agent Orange)
Armed conflict (e.g., gun shot wounds [Purple Heart], punji stick injuries)
The military determines who is able to receive this benefit.
These vets would be eligible for all ordinary VA benefits.
Brovet – Thanks for the information, but I have to disagree with their ruling.
This was an attack on a US military installation, not workplace violence. Workplace violence involves an individual who has a grievance with specific individuals in a workplace due to their actions toward that particular individual. This was an attack where the individual felt as part of one group they were mandated to attack the US military as a whole, and not particular individuals, thus it appears to me to fully meet the definition of an armed conflict, regardless of the source of the weapon.
The fact is that they could have ruled this service-connected and no one would have batted an eye.
What a load of hogwash. Military members get up to 50% VA disability for migraines (the more often a month you get them..the higher the percentage up to 50%) and those headaches do not have to be the result of a combat injury...just have to start sometime while you were active duty. Ditto for getting VA disability for sleep apnea - again up to 50% VA disability rating depending on the severity. Sleep apnea is not "combat" related. Arthritic knees and hearing loss are 2 VA disability ratings that lots of soldiers get. NONE OF IT COMBAT RELATED. NONE OF THEM GOT A PURPLE HEART
Yet these guys were shot by a muslim terrorist and they get nothing but a purple heart. SHAME ON THE MILITARY AND THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION.

Geraldo is correct on this (assuming there are not additional fact we do not currently know). There is not a murder but there may be manslaughter. We still don’t know what happened during the physical struggle prior to the shooting but I am sure that will come out shortly.

A lot of the misconduct we see from law enforcement is because there is poor training and supervision at the departments involved. You do not hit a handcuffed suspect (unless you think you will get away with it). Until these out of control departments start feeling the pinch of multi-million dollar lawsuits, they will not learn their lessons.

Obama is the last person on earth who should be preaching to Christians. He should take our forces and destroy those who are committing genocide against Christians!
 April 7, 2015 at 9:38am
This crime should be charged as not only aggravated robbery but also as attempted murder! These punks have no honor or conscience. They prey on the weakest of our citizens. I wish the old lady had carried a pistol and had ended their worthless lives!

I wish someone had informed me about “white privilege” while growing up with six siblings, a wonderful father who worked two jobs to put food on the table and really without a pot to piss in. Anyone, white or black can pull themselves up through hard work and putting in long hours at work but often through government (ineffectual) programs, the poor do not have an incentive to rise above poverty.
This whole concept of “white privilege” is a huge pile of more lib BS!

So, due to affirmative action, some more deserving student was bumped due to fraud! We need to totally get rid of affirmative action and let folks rise or fall on their own merits!

Kerry is our eras “Chamberlain”. He has his head in the clouds and will do anything to avoid confrontation. To say he is an embarrassment to our Country would be to give “embarrassment” a very bad meaning!

Why does freedom of Religion have to take a back seat to gay rights. Gays aren’t asking Christians to not “discriminate”, they are asking them to “participate” in their wedding ceremony which would violate their Christian faith. It is that simple. Try forcing a Muslim grocer to carry pork. Try having a Kosher store stock non-kosher foods. This is the same thing as asking a Christian to host a wedding for folks which is in violation of their faith. Let’s see what the Supreme Court has to say about this issue. I think their rulling is going to piss many libs off!
 April 2, 2015 at 4:58pm
It is not discrimination, it is not wanting to participate in the ceremony that is contrary to their religion.
 April 1, 2015 at 11:17am
OK, what if someone on the Bush Administration pulled this crap?
Liberals would never stop talking about it for 20 years to come if that happened.
For Hillary, her dogs won’t stop howling to stop this. Like fools, yelling at the top of their lungs to out volume this scandal.

I have worked with ordinance and have shot at the exploding targets, if the targets (or any quickly burning substance) were placed inside a metal object to contain (temporarily) the force, it could act like a bomb. I do not see this lawsuit going anywhere as it is based upon interpretation.
