Cop was wrong, know your target and where your bullets will go. Yes to all you who ask if the cop should have not fired and possibly be killed. In NYC when the cops shot 9 bystanders while trying to hit one target a couple years ago. Who’s fault was that? It was the cops who shot fault. Same situation here.
No it's not the same situation. The constable reasonably feared for his life and acted appropriately and within the law. You weren't there. Neither was I. This is precisely the reason the court rendered Graham v. Connor to protect officers from all the second-guessing and plethora of wouldas, shouldas, couldas that inevitably follow every deadly force encounter involving police. You don't know if the officer was even aware the daughter was standing "BEHIND" her father, yet you have no problem deciding the officer is in the wrong.
The officer did nothing wrong from a criminal perspective. He may, however, wind up being named in a civil suit and the burden in that case is whether the officer act recklessly or negligently. Not my call. Same applies to the civilians caught in the middle of a gunfight in NYC. Possible civil case against the officers and city. Again, not my call.
Uh, are you saying the officer didn't hit his target? Better read the article again...
cops have police academy and are supposed to qualify but NYC has very little range time and only 1 qualifying time in there career but they have some training a constable is not a police officer he is a peace officer his gun is only for his protection since constables have very narrow arrest power only if a crime is done in his presence they have about 2 weeks training and do not patrol for crime even sheriffs do not do general policing in pa only state and local police do

Believe it or not, not everyman would know who she is or was when they meet her. I am sure at some point in the relationship she would let them know. So if you fell in love before she told you, or at least had strong feelings for her you may be able to get past it.

More likely brought to you by the Department of Homeland Security and “Dreamers”
 March 23, 2015 at 11:21am
Your guess would be incorrect. I’m betting on a car load of “Dreamers”.
I seriously doubt they are black. Doesn’t fit the stereotype. What race of folks could you find living in a car as a family. Asian, sure, but not committing crimes. Therefore it could only be Dreamers.

Too late, our forefathers conquered you. Not enough of you left to bother about.

neither Macklemore or eminen have used it. They may be in that genre but they aren’t stupid.

considering the area, you can probably safely assume the victim is from Africa.

Beck, You pose the idea/statement that only God is the answer. I can agree, but in the case of the Bundy Ranch, without the guns, Bundy would be bankrupt and homeless today. The guns brought the government to the table. Otherwise they absolutely would have closed the Bundy’s down. Anyone one else disagree?
If all beck needs is god and peace beck should give up his firearms and all his wealth. There is a reason he and the nra aren't as buddy buddy anymore. I wouldn't be shocked if his next betrayal is on the 2nd amendment

I bet Jolie will move to a more conservative political ideology within the next decade or so. She is not a stupid woman by any means. I think she is quite smart, dedicated and a very caring individual. Over time she will learn that liberalism is the opposite of caring.
Interesting that Hollywood ignored her movie which about an American hero . Typical Hollywood move. They would rather celebrate quite the opposite. Considering that her father is a known conservative, could be an interesting philosophical switch for Jolie to track in that direction. Must be difficult to be a conservative when surrounded by the Hollywood types who seem to be like the liberals in Washington : tolerant of only those who share their particular political and social way of thinking.
Look at her own ilk in Hollywood writing racist e-mails. She knows they've fun of her and her black and asian children. I think this will come back to bite Sony.
What are you smoking...I want some?

Because in the course of time the facts will be lost. All details should be accurately recorded. AND because this is a black problem. This is not a criminal issue, this is a problem with one segment of society that has been destroyed by liberalism, popular culture and the effects of government handouts the have destroyed black families by penalizing marriage and giving incentives to out of wedlock births.

I agree, I just don’t see how “dad” didn’t take care of this.

Not really sure why the hatred for the Osteen’s. None of you attend their church. None of you know the fellowship and instruction that occurs outside the 30 minute TV show. Joel repeatedly says he is not formally trained and his one goal is to bring more people to Christ. So if he creates an interest and someone picks up the Bible and finds a good church (as he always says) he has done well. Full disclose – Joel’s speaking perked my interest as an agnostic. 2 years later after much reading and fellowship at a good church I have come to see Jesus as my savior.
God tells His (true) followers to warn others of sin, false doctrine, etc. He says if we don't and that person chooses the path to hell, then He will require their blood at our hands.
It's not about hate, cms - it's about instruction - and following God's (true) Word, and not our own selfish and sinful desires.
The danger of people like Joel Osteen is the same as it is with people like Joyce Meyer. Most who follow these false teachers get it in their heads that that's what "church" is all about - i.e. feeling good, having fun, full of confidence and high self esteem. So actually, people like these guys are helping to lead a whole bunch of people astray.
If you want to know what a TRUE church is - find yourself a good old (small) country church where the PREACHER is filled with the Holy Ghost while he preaches. THAT is a true church - not all of these mega churches that only cater to "itchy ears".
.Church isn't a 'social event" - it's where the true Gospel is commanded by God to be preached. People need to stop playing "church" and get their selves in a real church.
Thank you for writing these good words. You give your testimony about how listening to Joel Osteen speaking helped you find Christ late in your life. And another person here has the insolence to reply insinuating that you didn't find the God's true Word.

You avoid the heart of the question, yes you are right lobbyist help create this mess, BUT the problem is people like you think the government should be creating regulations. You have to admit that it is way way too much. But as a government department tries to make itself relevant or is controlled by ideologues with no way to be restrained this is what you get.

Your absolutely right, the one thing we will never know is if she really put money on that pump. I would bet a years salary she didn’t.

I do agree that GWB destroyed the balance of power in the Middle East, but that has no bearing on the destruction of the America and shredding of the Constitution.

This video has been online for 6 years and before the news knew about it there were well over 150,000 views. For the police chief to say he unaware, yea I just don’t believe that.
