Sure get tired of politicians and bureaucrats throwing away tax payer money rather than fighting these shake downs. Just because there was this tragedy does not mean the “family” and their lawyers should be made rich.
There was nothing wrong with the police reacting the way they did. City officials should pay this one out of their own pockets and hope their largess doesn’t encourage more successful attacks on cops. These kind of awards only encourage bad behavior. If they kill a cop, they are a hero. If they get killed trying, their families win the tax payer lotto.
Responsible parents would educate their children about the dangers of brandishing a look alike gun in a crowded public place and definitely tell them to drop it if the cops are arriving on the scene. You can’t eat you peanut butter sandwich into the shape of a gun, so just may be you shouldn’t point a more realistic looking toy at a police officer.

So you want it to go because YOU want it to go. Your argument is both self centered and specious. Why do liberals believe Christians must not offend anyone, but not be concerned at all; when they themselves are so consistently obnoxious.

We have to quit trying to appease these loons. It is a religious symbol as well as a historical symbol; and that is just fine.
The constitution protects freedom of religion, just the opposite of what these hate mongers preach. Nowhere does the constitution prohibit religious expression on public property, it only prohibits the federal government from “establishing” a national religion. There is a big difference in the words “establish” and “endorse”, but liberals have to play word games, corrupt the language, and count on specious emotional arguments to push their failed agendas.
So you are good with me putting a satanic statute next to it? I will settle for that.

Giving into an outrageous liberal demand never works. It only encourages them to take away more of your rights!

Liberals can’t be happy unless everyone else is as miserable as they have made themselves.
Liberals believe a lie told often enough is true, but this really stretches credulity calling this an establishment of a religion. They can’t stand that some people are happy, believe in something beyond their own selfish interest,and have a moral foundation.
To all liberals: Get A Life, and leave me alone!

Actually this doesn’t seem so far fetched when you consider how Democrats are lining up behind a felon for president. It wouldn’t be “fair” if our next president were not allowed to vote!
By the way, will Hillary’s Secret Service detail be forced to wear orange jump suits to blend in?
 April 22, 2016 at 1:30pm
Only way Dems can win is to cater to the lowest segments of society. It’s called pandering.
No wonder the US is on a downward spiral when Dems flood the voting booths with uninformed voters. What’s next Terry, adding dead Dems back on the voter roles.
Since when did the Governor have the right to violate the law? Dems are truly scary.

Seems Sean has taken a page from the leftist play book. Appear to be fair until you show your real colors when it gets time to make a real difference.

You hit the nail on the head. Hannity has established himself as the sole arbiter of the Colorado Republican delegate selection process. He is saying he gets to determine what is “fair” thereby depriving Colorado Republicans who actually did vote on what the process should be.
If he knew what he was talking about or applied any logic to his arguments, he would know that any Republican that wanted to vote could do so at his local precinct meeting. His buying into the manipulation by Trump is puzzling. His repetitive outrage is becoming a bore!

Fox News people are becoming east coast liberal conservatives. Their logic is becoming less logical.
Hannity and most of the rest of them were played by Trump on the unfairness of the selection process for delegates. The Republican Party is selecting its candidate and seeks voter input in various ways. In Colorado, you had to show up at the local precinct meeting to vote for representatives to the state convention. Most people don’t care to put in the time to understand the process or the issues or to vote at their precinct.
If Trump and Hannity think the system is rigged, how come Trump has many more delegates than his share of the votes would suggest. Are hey complaining it is rigged in Trump’s favor or just whining like Cruz said?
Also remember the “Hope and Change” speeches, the incompetence, the changing positions, and the blaming others that characterized Obama and propelled Trump’s rise. Now it’s Trump who thinks it’s enough to give speeches, not play by the rules, change his positions, and blame others. Yet Hannity and other NY talking heads at Fox seem to be buying and selling Trumps illogic.
Don’t get me wrong, a bad Trump is many times better than Hillary Clinton any day, but Trump’s unfounded name calling and fake outrage is getting old. Let’s get commitments on the issues and quit playing games.
Trump has successfully turned this into a hot issue, most Americans simply don't agree with you that this is 'getting old'. Moreover Trump has turned this into a winning issue, Cruz needs to come with a better strategy for answering it because it is killing him, and dodging the question or redirecting to standard talking points just plays right into Trump's narrative/branding of this.
I don't doubt for a second that Trump is playing this up for his own reasons (which is as much a part of 'playing the game' as poaching delegates is btw) but it doesn't diminish the fact that it is putting a spotlight on what appears to most Americans to be a corrupt and rigged process (yes, it's been around forever, yes those are 'the rules', no it doesn't make it morally right and yes it's entirely valid that many Americans have a real problem with this).
You had me until you said rump is better than hitlary. There's no difference between the two.

Trump is playing Hannity and many others. Trump knew the rules but wanted to win by losing.He was simply not organized enough to win.
I am puzzled by a couple of things.
Trump supports tend to be demanding change, primarily in response to the damage Barack Obama has done. Yet didn’t Obama get elected on “Hope and Change”. Seems voters don’t learn and are content to make the same mistake twice..
Also, riling up people with fiery speeches and blaming others for their failures were hallmarks of the Obama administration, isn’t that exactly what Trump is doing?
Make no mistake, Trump is at worst no worst than Hillary and maybe just what we need. The problem is we don’t know which of these extremes his core principles will drive him to. If Trump is the nominee, I will not let emotion or unrealistic expectation of perfection keep me for voting for him because we know Hillary’s leftist policies will complete the destruction of American exceptionalism that Obama has begun.

Roe v Wade was one of the first unconstitutional abortions by the Supreme Court who violated the constitution by legislating from the bench. Clearly the Declaration of Independence makes it clear that life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are the foundation of this country and the constitution nowhere oks killing little humans.
reading comprehension skills would be great for you to aquire. In my comment I am using her words against her to prove a point, I also mention that we substitute with an actual right that is actually in the constitution, i.e. 2nd amendment. The point of the comment being that you cant choose to restrict a right that you dont like because after all, it's not really a right if it's totally limited and constrained.

Her ideas are abortions!

So LibSoc you are now supporting my right to my guns and my money, and you are now against the government taking my property!
A little human’s right to live is at the core of our human rights!
If pro-choice “is the right way to go because it is a choice”, then the same logic would hold for robbing banking and murder. Oh wait, it is murder. Funny that the same people who go apoplectic at pouring a little water over terrorists think nothing of torturing a little human by ripping off its limbs and crushing its brain!
 April 19, 2016 at 1:34pm
I don’t hate Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton.
I don’t like their policies. In fact, I think they have put this great country at substantial risk, but I don’t hate them.
I don’t understand King or others that hate political candidates. Maybe in King’s case it is because Cruz has shown up King and his colleagues by sticking to principles, not to political parties. Elitists including Obama and King continue to push divisiveness and hate when we need dialog and solutions.

And the Colonel kills the chickens before dismembering them. PP dismembers little humans to kill them.
 April 18, 2016 at 9:45pm
Don’t you ever get tired of being so wrongly liberal on everything!
 April 18, 2016 at 9:43pm
A woman killing her child is like … inhuman.
A tax payer having to pay for it is like .. illegal.
An organization like PP continuing to kill little humans, cover it up, and distort the issue with snide analogies is like … immoral and criminal.
