The flag has no business being over the state house. If you conservatives want a confederate flag than you have every right to have it on your home, car or property. But it should NEVER be over government buildings! How would you right wingers feel,if a new black panthers flag was over the state house?!
On the cool, you are right, government for all the people should be as sterile as possible from all persuasions. And by extrapolation, that means there should be as less government as possible, since the more government does the more the potential for conflict, opinion, and persuasion come into play.
That will soon follow. Obama will make sure. He has already lit up the white house in the turd tapper colors and flipped off millions of Christians.
Who are you to tell other people what to do? Keep your interloping nose out of it
Corrections for you:
That flag is NOT over the SC statehouse. It is over a memorial. Second, it wasn't conservatives that put it up in the 60's. It was, brace yourselves... DEMOCRATS to thumb their noses at the civil rights movement. And conservatives are the ones wanting it to come down now. I understand that commenting parties may not be from SC so I wanted to get those details straight.
I consider myself conservative and I agree with you. But then again, I am from the north (but I live in the south).

What I find so hypocritical form a lot of these right-wing crock it cop defenders is they attack Marilon Mosby for refusing to release deatails and evidence but supported Ferguson Prosecutor “Robert Mucollogh” wen he refused to. The grand jury saw the evidence and details and sided with Mosby. Mosby wants medical deatails and evidence saved for the courts not tried in the media where a potential jury pool could get tainted! That is compleltey standard and normal for somebody in her position.
This is why I don’t support grand jury trials for police brutality cases. Because they have a notorious history of leaking classified deatails about cases in order to do character assasination in the person they killed so that there is jury intimidation. That’s why the ferguson jurors are suing so that they can speak up about how Robert Mucogloh misled them!

Freddie Grey wasn’t the least bit suicidel fool. Every medical examiner possible already made it clear he did NOT kill himself. The autopsy was released last week and that confirmed the banging head story was a lie. Even if he had been banging his head it is impossible to destroy your spine that way. The autopsy leaks showed that isn’t what happened anyway.
 June 30, 2015 at 4:33am
Still no proof of jack. Fox also claimed that a secret source told them Freddie grey had a spinal cord and neck surgery a week before his arrest. That turned out to be completely untrue! And they have stopped making that claim. Fox kept telling us we had to respect the grand jury decision in ferguson but has been completely hypocritical in this case. If Donta Allen didn’t actually see anything then claiming he heard something would still sound silly to a jury. So it’s simple at the conclusion of trial just wait for the facts and evidence to be released. This was already declared a homicide regardless of whatever Donta thought he heard, so case closed.
The MAJORITY are silent. You are a bigger fool than you appear if you think otherwise.
The majority wants immigrant who are well off and educated to migrate.Not the poor. The anti immigration people should get a petition to change the text on the statue of liberty from send us your huddled masses to send us you PHDs
What those people don't understand, axer351, is the successful people of other countries have no need to immigrate anywhere - even the US. And in a delicious taste of irony, most of those asking the US only let educated immigrants in the US tend to be the least educated among us. LOL.

Looks like Dakota Meyer dogged a huge bullet! This tramp was gonna try and get part of his military benefits as well as spousal support and child support if they didn’t work out for a baby she knew damn well wasn’t his. However this is why I no longer support th military, because it has turned into such a far right political organization that just like “Chris Kyle” they are obsessed with the palins for some strange reason.

So are you finally admitting that the lives were right about the real intention behind the flag after all instead spouting that southern heritage nonsense?!
If the girl in question isn’t pressing charges or demanding a investigation then what exactly is the point of offering a reward?! There is nothing authorities can do unless the girl with the baby actually wanted to move forward withd legal action. Furthermore we don’t know what happened before the video and these girls could very well know or have history with each other. It doesn’t look like this was a random attack there was clearly a argument or confrontation that took place before the camera started rolling.
remember he faked his injuries before being put in the van, all he did was continue the same actions. criminals do it all the time.

The same examiner also ruled this to be a homcide though. The rest of the leak is just speculation but not medical fact. Either way this throws out the false story that some other right wing bloggers released saying that he was trying to kill/hurt himself(he wasn’t suicidel). Aswell as the false story that he had a spinal and neck surgery a week before arrest.
"...saying that he was trying to kill/hurt himself(he wasn’t suicidel). [sic]"
Well if memory serves correct, the narrative wasn't that he was trying to kill/hurt himself, it was that he was thrashing around in a tantrum like state. There is a big difference and supported by a witness.
"According to the leaked autopsy report, the injury suffered by Gray was most likely caused when the van police were transporting him in suddenly decelerated, the Baltimore Sun reported.
Gray was not belted in the van, but was only shackled by officers and thus was “at risk for an unsupported fall during acceleration or deceleration of the van,” the report said."
I would contend that this is speculation based on every occupant of the vehicle acting in a manner of a 'responsible passenger'; and does not take into consideration a man thrashing around in a tantrum like state. The blow IF caused by thrashing could be supported by these autopsy findings as it would be very similar I would imagine, but I am no pathologist and can be wrong.
Let it be clear, I do not know if this is what had actually happened, I am merely correcting your assertion that many were saying this was him trying to hurt himself; and the findings of this autopsy can support the claims that he was throwing a tantrum. I will wait though for the investigation to be complete for judgement, and hope it has not been corrupted by this activist DA who should not only recuse herself from this case, but also as a DA.
Head-banging is very common among prisoners. And you should read up on what the 'homicide' category means in autopsy results.
Such behavior is also quite common for drug addicts.
 June 24, 2015 at 6:13am
Why are the media outlets reporting this not also reporting the leaked information shows the examiner determined this to be a homicide?!
Your right, but you left out something as well....In concluding his death was a homicide, Assistant Medical Examiner Carol H. Allan wrote that it was "not an unforeseen event that a vulnerable individual was injured during operation of the vehicle, and that without prompt medical attention, the injury would prove fatal." I believe Assistant is the word you left out.

The police never even claimed he was banging his head intentionally. Even if he was that does NOT cause a damaged spine! The other prisoner never gave a story at all Becuase the idiots at Washington post ran that nonsense from a leak most likely came from he police union and didn’t even bother to confirm it with the other prisoner first to make sure it was true.
In other words that idiot WP story is no better than the rolling stone rape hoax story. Remember some idiot right wing bloggers made up another lie about how Freddie Grey had spinal and neck surgeries a week prior. Of course that also turned out to be a complete flip. Baltimore has more police brutality settlements that every other city and state combined! Wake up and stop making excuses for these murderous pigs.
I really can't understand why most readers are supporting the officers on this, unless they really dislike the fact that the victim was black, and they can't find it consciously right to support the " coloured folk"
The other prisoner initially reported that it sounded like Gray was banging his head - he changed his story after getting death threats. That is fact, not conjecture - I heard it from his lips - the old "That's not what I really meant" excuse.
Next time you're about to get robbed or shot by the likes of Freddie Gray, call a drug pusher, since you hate cops so much. See where that gets you.

Your joking right?! For obamas first 5 years all I would see when I turned on Fox News was the Tea Party holding a rally every single day over nonsense!
Nope. Not joking. Most Tea Party Rallies are held on the weekend. Or during the evenings. Not during the week when most people, except occupy idiots are working.
IRS abuse of power... nonsense?
Infringe on constitutional rights and that would be nonsense?
If you like your insurance you can keep your insurance... nonsense?
National debt beyond control is nonsense?
A president take on the role of King? Nonsense to you

Obama personally knew this pastor before he became POTUS he did NOT have. A relationship with Chris Kyle or his family and he would have gotten criticized for going since Chris Kyle was a far right gun nut which is the exact opposite of politics of Obama. Apples and oranges.
False. As the commander in chief it is his duty to recognize the senseless murder of America's greatest soldier since WW2, whether he likes him or not, and whether you like him or not.
Obama has selective Selfish....ism! There is no other president that has shown to be more selfish than this coward/sissy and does not care about anyone else but his own foolish ideals and racist tendencies! Open your eyes!

That’s Becuase he wasn’t invited to those funerals. Is he suppose to go to a funeral every time a police officer is shot?! George Bush didn’t send or attend any! Right Wing Hypocrisy fail!
 June 22, 2015 at 6:37pm
Apples and oranges. I hear plenty of my white freinds back in the south Call each other the term “redneck” and “cornflake redneck” all the time. A lot of country music stars say that aswell. However as a black man I would NEVER call one of my white freinds that word!
Curb, It doesn't matter to me at all to be called a cracker as long as it is not coming from someone who is trying to push me. It's just a word. I guess any word would make anyone mad if it is used in a a smart tone. Where I was raised the n word was not used as a bad word, it was just our way of talking. And yes I still use it ( every once in a while)and don't mean one mean thing about it. Any one that says they never use the word, well I have my doubts.
I would have no problem with you calling me a redneck. I am. I work out in the sun, and my neck is red, and it comes from lots of hard work. I also feel no need to perpetually look for a reason to be offended. We have gotten way to far off track when it comes to words. You KNOW when someone is trying to offend, and when they are just flapping their yap. I have heard people be very ugly about someone else without ever using one word that appeared to be offensive or in a way that had to be taken as ugly. It is sad that when you are truly friends with someone who has a different skin color and you have to weigh every word out of fear of offending, even though the last thing you would ever want to do is hurt their feelings. Why has the color of one’s skin become such a touchy subject? If people would quit worrying about it, I bet it would go the way of the dinosaurs. It was never an issue for me, but I have found myself pushed into a corner. I just want to go back to being Americans. We ALL owe this country our allegiance and our love, and we ALL should be working hard to make it wonderful again….ALL of us…. black, white, rich, poor, young and old. I love America, and am so sad to watch us become the land of the perpetually offended.
Redneck is a term coined for the Irish slaves by one of the black slave owners.

If he was a Muslimmthe right wingers would be demanding it be called terrorism before any facts came in and then would attack Obama for not calling it Islamic terrorism. I am so damn tired of the hypocrisy.
