Every tyrant in the history of the world has had two things going for him (or her). A well-armed military and an unarmed peasantry. Armed peasants will ever present a problem for advocates of tyranny, and Mr. Gumbel’s invective against the NRA is either an admission of his ignorance or is an example of him stepping out in favor of tyranny.

So the protesters don’t like Fox, so what? The average Progressive doesn’t want to watch news about how the world is. They want feel-good reporting about how the world “ought to be”, and political commentary with a message of “change”. They won’t stop to explore the actual causes of their discontent (barriers to employment, cyclical poverty and dependence on the State) when it’s so much easier to find a scapegoat, riot and loot local businesses of all the alcohol they can’t afford;)
the blaze is getting racist only showing people of color saying uck off fox news
plenty of whites do it too

The reason cops shoot center mass is to eliminate the threat, AND reduce the possibility of stray bullets endangering innocents. It’s easier to miss shooting at an arm or a leg, and I’d rather cops kill the perp than risk a stray bullet hitting my child.
As you mentioned, law-abiding citizens all seem to know the drill: drop the weapon, get down on the ground, and let the cops do their business. No reason for anyone to get shot by cops if they follow those guidelines.

Anything worth shooting is worth shooting…15 times? Come on, coppers! This kind of marksmanship, or lack thereof, is plain embarrassing…
He's dead, off the streets, can't hurt anyone anymore and we don't have to support the low life for the next 20 years. Well worth 15 rounds.
Does it matter? As long as the threat has been eliminated.
What do I feel when I kill a murderous thug? A little RECOIL
it's called ACCURACY by VOLUME
You don’t shoot, then wait 5 or 6 seconds to see if it “worked”. You don’t shoot to “wound”.
See the 21 foot rule in my earlier post.
One uses unequivocally lethal force (e.g. multiple shots) on an armed person who is an imminent lethal threat to you and others. Three police officers means 15 shots (5 shots each at about the same time) is a likely and realistic result as each officer will not wait to see if another officer stopped the lethal threat as waiting could put others and the officers at imminent risk.

“Elite” soldiers don’t strap on bombs for suicide attacks. Too much time and money goes into training them to waste such a precious commodity on a busload of women and children. When Hamas says “elite”, they mean “special”; as in those of limited mental capacities who want to achieve martyrdom, but don’t have the sense that god gave a squirrel.

Don’t impeach the second “black” president after impeaching the first. The Left will use impeachment to pound their drumbeat of racism. Better to let BHO sink in a puddle of his own incompetence.
You do have a point. As much as I want him gone, this has the potential to ruin the GOP forever.

The issue isn’t that someone was denied assistance on the day of the attack. The issue is that those in Benghazi were aware of security issues, and were denied additional security assets even before the attack in question.

Allowing the actions of and treatment received by men (in this temporal existence) to be the impetus pushing you away from God is to acknowledge you did not believe in the infinite and eternal to begin with. May this poser’s “doubts” motivate other Christians to examine their beliefs and decide whether or not they really “know” God. Seek and ye shall find, or surrender and embrace the mundane for the handful of years you have left…
He was likely very sincere in his belief in God, but he likely thought the bible was the divine word of god and was evidence for his existence. When he went to Seminary, he invariable found out that the bible was written by men, is flawed, and is not really, in itself, evidence of anything ..

I’m sure the slain teen was a white protestant from a good family… In any case, the cops in question will be in my prayers for having to shoulder their burden of responsibility for this kid’s death. Their job isn’t easy, and I wouldn’t wish responsibility for such an action on my worst enemy. God bless the boys in blue…

The most intriguing aspect of progressive policies is the mentality of the individuals supporting them. As an experiment, ask your progressive friends if they want their children to be drawing government benefits. Uniformly, they’ll answer ‘NO’, but in the same breath, they’ll insist such programs need to be in place for ‘other people’ who MIGHT need them. It’s almost as if they recognize the effects of these programs and how getting-money-for-nothing erodes at the soul, but their ‘compassion’ encourages them to enable the weakening and corruption of their neighbors. How do you crack through the psyche of someone who’s addicted to ‘compassion’?
Yeah, it's kind of kind enabling an alcoholic. It does not help them one bit and in the government's situation, it drags down us middle class.
You are so right. It reminds me when Congress changed the retirement system for federal workers in the mid 1980's. The changes meant much less for the on-the-street worker, but they didn't change it for themselves. They made sure they not only got an excellent retirement but also many other cushions of comfort.

Truly sad is that Bill O’Reilly castigates the ‘civil rights’ establishment and calls for hard actions to meet an obvious challenge to black communities and America as a nation. Their response? Just what he predicted, “Let’s have a conversation…” Wake up America! Black, white, yellow, brown, et al. Your taskmasters have exposed their strategy, and their plan is not to empower individual citizens, but to keep whole blocks of the population segregated and waiting in anticipation for the conclusion of an eternal ‘conversation’…

It’s important to recognize some of those votes as political compromises necessary to appease his constituents. He wasn’t a Senator from Texas you know…

To be fair, Mexico’s drug violence is fueled by money earned feeding American appetites for narcotics and weed.
