    These might be some of the dumbest comments I’ve ever seen on any article within the blaze.

    And that’s the problem. Those cops were out of control no matter what anyone’s color of skin. This incident should have never gone this far. If they felt so inclined to enforce the cigarette law at that moment, they should have cited him and moved on.

    Matt, what you fail to recognize in this article is that while the cops may be forced to enforce these dumb laws they are certainly not required to use such unnecessary force in doing so. They could have simply cited the guy and moved on. Those cops were looking for an altercation.

    Come one, have you read the autopsy reports? While it lists all the things you say it clearly says the cause of death was airway restriction by the officer. While he may have chose to be fat, he didn’t chose to be choked. The fat might have killed him someday, but it never got the chance.

    With your logic we could go around choking fat people and people with asthma without penalty.

    You started out well. All good points except you fail the recognize that he did not make the decision to choke to death. The cop made that decision for him and that should be a crime. The cops could have simply cited him or even arrested him without choking him. He wasn’t even resisting, the cop just jumped on his back and choked him.

    Next time you drive over the speed limit ask yourself if you deserve to be run off the road into a tree and killed because you “broke the speed law”. He was selling cigarettes for god sake, who does that really harm? Only the tax collector is my guess.

    It’s fine to enforce the law. They could have cited him or even arrested him without choking him to death. While he’s argumentative he doesn’t even seem to be resisting the arrest at any point. He simply falls down and says he can’t breath while they sit on him and continue to choke. This was way different from Michael Brown, these police officers were in the wrong.

    The answer of course is… Chewbacca

    Guess what? When you make an effort to stand out by being overweight, having wild hair and dressing like an idiot… people are going to stare.

    If you don’t like it, clean yourself up and dress like an adult. It’s not just because you’re fat.

    Oh please, this is nothing compared to all the other scandals that have resulted in exactly zero punishment. So why would this one be any different or even be news.

  • [1] September 30, 2014 at 9:27am

    Yawn, just another blatant failing that will result in absolutely no action by the republicans.

    The better option would have been for the organization to just recognize the situation and pay him.

    Whatever… just another corrupt government official that the republicans will yell and scream over but not actually take any action against. Think about this… Bengazi, IRS, VA, Fast and Furious… Despite all of the yelling and grand standing not one single person punished or arrested for any of these.

    Republicans are either in on the cover-ups or they are just as much to blame at this point for letting this stuff happen without consequences.

    Washington DC comes in at the highest at $688,000 yet the article fails to mention it?

    Actually you’re wrong here. He’s in favor of letting each state decide their personhood laws. So if a state calls an unborn baby a person the feds can’t overrule. It’s completely consistent with the libertarian beliefs that more power should be in the hands of state and local law makers instead of federal lawmakers.

  • September 18, 2014 at 9:56am

    Now please quit talking about it and do something Mr. Gowdy. Your words are not being backed up by action. Wake me up when someone actually goes to jail or gets punished over this. Talk is talk, we want action.

  • September 18, 2014 at 9:55am

    More talk and still no action. This is all a show by both Republicans and Democrats. If anyone was really serious about this someone would be in jail by now. What a shame.

    Generally things are better when they are set free. Scotland, look to the US as your inspiration. Would the US be what it is today if it were still under British rule?

    Can’t it’s the golden goose that funds them all. Don’t fall for this drama by Republicans, they don’t want it ended either. Only true libertarians are for abolishing the IRS. Because if Republicans wanted that they could vote it tomorrow in the house.

    If you want to push the bible do it with your own means, don’t sabotage a private company’s products.
