Keep the hate comments coming, keep the hate fresh and keep it strong. This is what “they” want you to do. Think what “they” want you to think. You are drones. Thoughtless, ignorant drones. Drones that will march to your deaths in “their” wars. To keep “them” safe, fat and rich. So go ahead, spew the hate, shoot the messengers, continue to play the part of the imbecile.
Whatever you're smoking, diego. Keep it to yourself please.
If you really want someone to sign on to your ideas, start using proper nouns rather than pronouns. At this point we have no idea what you are jabbering about.

Who writes this garbage? The skirmish between Israel and Hamas is nothing but a prelude to the coming regional (world) war. Hamas has been testing Israel’s defenses and responses to attacks for the Iranians, who are planning a broader front. The ignorance of western media is shameful.

Government keeping blood relatives apart in the name of some sort of secrecy. This story is just more fuel for the fire. Government has no place in the private lives of individuals or in the prevention of reunions of biological siblings. Socialists (progressives) see government as all knowing and therefore above the fundamental ties that bind us all. Truly despicable and sad that these guys went through life not knowing they were brothers, because government dictated that it be so.
Government doesn't dictate this. There are plenty of open adoptions. My grandson was placed for adoption. All parties decided it was in his best interest for a closed adoption. We occasionally get updates on him, but are not allowed to contact his family. When he is 18 he will be given the info he needs to contact us. The choice will be his.

All of these racists wil be put on the domestic terrorist list
Again, no picture of the gun, which means a third grader could tell it wasn't a real gun.
Once again law enforcement creates the situation, the shooting geometry, and logical outcome from a situation that was benign until they showed up.
Aside from the documented history of Grand Rapids law enforcement employees using excessive force/ shooting the unarmed, you have to at some point ask the question: Why does law enforcement provoke situations that do not require their expertise in escalation of force?
If this article is correct, the young man is an adult and confirmed he was fine. If the employees in their body armor and weapons at the ready felt threatened why did they move into the apartment and pursue the man?
This is a microcosm of what swat/ srt does when they are employed in anything other an active shooter or other specific threats: providing one tool and one tactic to provide the solution; shoots fired.
This really is massive mis-management in the law enforcement industry. NO matter how you analyze the application of resources in this instance, almost producing another murder of an unarmed person, the taxpayers will be exposed to civil litigation awards.
As bad as this may sound, maybe the only way these ridiculous situations will be minimized is if the individual law enforcement employee and their supervisors and trainers are held liable for a portion of these civil awards.
The officers were dispatched to the home. They had to do their job and check on the guy. They wanted to see if he had cut his arms, which means whoever called the police probably said he was cutting himself. Then the guy runs upstairs and comes back down with a bb gun in his hand? Really? And people on here are blaming the police? I think some people may want to read the story before posting, but that seems to be rare on this site. Oh, spoiler alert, the guy lived.
Giving the police the benefit of the doubt I am assuming the shot to the abdomen was intended for the arms or legs. Because that is how a situation like this should be handled. Police should seek cover and demand the gun be dropped. If the weapon is not dropped than warning shots and non-lethal shots should be fired. Shots to kill should only be fired if the individual actually fires his weapon. Now someone explain to me how the stand your ground laws make any sense given the above procedure we expect from police.
Diego Roswell "Guns don’t kill people, cops kill people."
While I usually side with the citizen in cases of excessive force or too quick to fire, not here. The officer was in the right in this case. You do not approach police with a gun in hand in a situation like this unless your goal is being shot. End of story. If I were the officer I would have reacted the same. That BB gun looked real enough in a split second situation no other logical outcome was possible.
so we hear your suicidal, pow pow pow dead people cannot commit suicide.
on the face of this story, you can't indite the police on anything. the kid tried to commit suicide by cop.
soooo... King'O has HIS PRIVATE ARMY JUST AS WELL TRAINED AND FUNDED... changing from using tazers to bullets.

Its funny how much press time Rand Paul gets, I am suspicious of any politician that is on TV/Radio/Web all the time.
I kinda trust him. Ted I know is a good guy.
West, Lee, & Trey look good.
He will be used as a poster boy for the left as a koot as his father was. They we give him all the air they can. Need video to hold against him. Why does glen give people without a pray in hell a chances to wind to on air. They are like sucker vines on a plant. They suck away food and real growth from it. The GOP has the Machinery and interface in the political word. The art of war state the enemy of my enemy is my friend. The right need to infiltrate the GOP Blood supply. Change it matrix from the inside. this is what the progressive did to the Dems in the 60's and 70's. Politic take years to move in any given direction. We need to control the money, Build bridges and common ground. The old guard is not become any more or less progressive , They are playing by the rules that are in play now. If we want to change the rule or system you need to take a gut check pick up a weapon and join the battle line. That is the only way to change it fast and that was thought about when the framer placed the second amendment there. Ahhh, I thought so. stomach for it. Then step back and take door number one. it may take 30-40 yrs. We need to take over the college as professors, The media, The courts and benches. We need to set the national tone.
They only doing it for ratings right now. When election time comes, Rand will be ignored just like Ron was and all you will hear is Christie, Cruz and Rubio.

The district court erred in denying the applicant’s motion for summary
judgment on the Second Amendment claim because San Diego County’s “good cause” permitting requirement impermissibly infringes on the Second Amendment right to bear arms in lawful self-defense.
REVERSED and REMANDED.

“We thus disagree with those courts—including the district court in this case—that have taken the view that it is not necessary (and, thus, necessary not) to decide whether carrying a gun in public for the lawful purpose of self-defense is a constitutionallyprotectedactivity.” Ninth district court
Even if this makes it to the supreme court on appeal, and I do not think it will, a citizen has the right to keep and bear arms. To out law open carry of unloaded firearms as California has done, and to restrict the ability to obtain a concealed carry permit for lawful reasons is a clear violation of the second amendment. The local controls cannot enact policy that eliminates all possible avenues for safely, lawfully carrying a firearm on one’s person in the public space. The application process already includes training, psychological exams and background checks. It was the need to show the local sheriff or police chief that you had actual “cause” in the form of police reports, etc. “proving” you were in some sort of danger (applying after the fact) that was struck down. This will stand up to the supremes. It is a great day for lawful citizens like myself who must live in California.

Being from California, I am not surprized by this decision. When Brown made open carry illegal, we the people did not complain as much because we knew this day would come. You see the liberals made an error. They thought they could take away all of our rights to bear arms for self defense. Open carry of an unloaded firearm was all we had for the longest time and we used to have open carry get togethers where we openly carried. This scared the liberals and they passed legislation forbidding it. By doing so they removed all avenues for a free and fair means to bear arms in the state. Therefore, concealed carry permits as they stood were challenged in court for their wording “for what reason” you need or want to carry a firearm, and they rejected self defense as a legitimate cause.

The elected a statist (communist) to the senate and continue to support and push the Obama (statist, communist) agenda. The Constitution state is just another failed liberal welfare state with high taxes and more regulations that grow like weeds. Connecticut’s conservative roots have been drowned in the cesspool of liberalism (no thanks to its proximity to the madness that is NY).

California would first make all firearms illegal and confiscate ammunition before admitting that any terrorist acts could possibly occur in their state. It has to be the fault of the guns. Thus the stepped up confiscations we see in progress in California. California will burn the US constitution before it detains or questions anyone with brown skin or fitting the profile of illegal alien or middle eastern terrorist. The state will be attacked because it is the softest of soft targets.

This is exactly why the progressives enacted the seventeenth amendment. By allowing for the popular vote (democracy as it is defined) to determine who shall represent the states in the Senate, rather than the state legislatures, morons like these are able to inevitably destroy the country and hand it over to the ruling elites. Since the Executive branch and one half of the congress is elected by popular vote, true checks and balances by the states is lost to wandering pedestrian human waste. Progressives knew this and were forward thinking in this regard. Thus, the representative republic is no more and what we have is a socialist democracy, one step from socialist dictatorship.
