A republic trumps a Democracy. Especially on the choices that have to be made day to day. On big choices like this, a democratic vote is needed. If it was just pushed through by judges or by legislature it will divide the nation which could cause a civil war further down the road.

I hate to say it but the only way you can fight this crap is to sue. You can’t depend on the government to do the correct thing anymore.
Yeah, you showed your hand about who you are. There is plenty you can do about this! One thing I can ensure people reading this,.....JOIN YOUR LOCAL MILITIA!!! They only do this to the weak, they would never give me an opportunity like this! So, you need to be associated with people who can help you as a fellow citizen!!~~ MILITIA!! Lawyers, Judges, LEO, Military, Veteran, Doctors all on staff, 24 hours a day!
The cops who let this go are just as guilty as the f'er who committed assault with a deadly weapon.
Assuming Akers is telling the truth, the off duty cop is lucky Akers was not armed and decided to shoot when he saw a man holding a gun approaching him. I know if I was in Akers situation and armed, I would have felt like my life was being threatened.
This is truly mind boggling. How did we allow it to get this far?
Did you guys see that Uber driver getting yelled by the NYC cop? I know it's old but I just finished watching that. And now this? It's crazy...

Agreed, and I would say they have a great chance of winning this hands-down.
In addition to your comments it's now necessary to document as much as possible with photos, audio & video recordings. In the heat of the moment you're not going to think about witnesses but can easily take pictures of them and their vehicles (most important license plate) A good attorney would appreciate it.
this crack head cop and his toothless, meth head girlfriend, need to keep their noses out of the stash that was impounded.
This couple is extremely unlucky.
We have all been told that bad apples on the force are few and far between.
The article does not specify how many officers responded to the call, but we do know that there was not one single fresh apple in the whole bunch.
Encountering a road raging, off duty bad apple. Then, have nothing but bad apples respond to your 911 call. The odds of this have to be astronomical.
I mean, think about it. With all the good officers out there, not one of them ended up involved in this situation.
...so, apparently a couple of "Moderate Cops" showed up...the one's that won't beat you, kill your dog or shoot you dead, they only laugh and joke about the one's who will...
A VERY similar incident happened to me, in our local, Ohio county. I was driving behind a car, with a woman driving, a man in the passenger seat, and, apparantly, a baby/child in the back seat.
I was driving behind them, when all of a sudden, the lady slams on the brakes. I had plenty of room to slow down, but then I signaled them to pull over into a parking lot.
When I got put, a chubby guy ran over to me, got up real close, and asked me what the hell I was doing. I said I wasn't doing anything. Then, he said I was driving too close to their car, that I was endangering their child. WTF? Slam on your brakes in front of me, and it's ME that's endangering your child??
I called the Sheriff's office, and when a Deputy came, he said that the guy was an off-duty policeman for a local municipality, which the chubby guy did not tell me.
I told the Deputy that this guy was a little out of his jurisdiction. I also said that they were driving recklessly. I had to call the State police, who then came. It was a woman, who was also a person who I had trouble with, before.
Of course, when she got there, she was yucking it up with the reckless couple. She then came over to me and asked me why I called. I told he my story, and she then went back over to the other couple and told them to leave. She told me there was nothing she could do.
I called his boss, the next day, but nothing was ever done. AFAIK, the idiot is still patrolling the town that he worked for.
This idiot cop was a peach. Just buy about a half dozen and if one is bad it will rot the others in 24 hours.
In this instance I would support some vigilante justice. The rioters and looters should go visit his house. Here is an officer that deserves an early forced retirement compliments of them.
I don’t get the people who would do nothing. You do that to ME unjustly I will end your life and if your cop buddies take issue I will keep ending lives.
The BEST case scenario is I die while defending my rights to not have my face caved in by a caveman with a badge.
First, you wait and see what happens with the case. Does the prosecutor file charges, does the Marshall’s service fire him and either way you sue the Marshall for damages.
The prosecutor will file charges to protect themselves and the police department from civil liability. The Marshall’s are a federal agency mostly tasked for state to state prisoner transport and witness protection service. Cops really don’t have a true allegiance to such an agency. They are like the Secret Service or IRS investigators.
sadly your right.
Sue? If he does that i'm pulling my own piece and opening fire. Assault with a Deadly, you can respond in kind.
This idiot Marshal got damn lucky this guy didn't have his own gun. America's Jackbooted Thugs formerly known as Law Enforcement...
Why are the officers in these articles never named? How can anyone ever follow up to make sure that the scumbag cop loses his job if we don't know who it is?
And why do people keep saying most cops are good?
Again, do this to me or my loved ones and this arsehole better be watching over his shoulder from then on. It could take years…and he would wonder about all the unfortunate things that happen to his property and vehicles…then one day, when he least expected it….maybe asleep on the beach on vacation with the family…BAM! Karma comes to visit.
Don’t be a Dick. Life eventually comes around full circle.
I have great respect for all of our men and women in uniform and even plain clothed service. But the moment anyone steps over this line they are no longer even human to me and definitely no longer a respected officer of the law. This guy is now garbage that needs to be incinerated.
This is where a having a friend in US congress can help. Especially a US Senator. They can make the inquiry on their side and circumvent the Barney Fife methods of the local police department.
Sue the federal government. Are you out of your mind?
"and is gathering relevant information on the matter to determine the appropriate steps,”
Translation: "We'll get back to you in about 18 months."
Agreed -- I am sure there are a number of "slip n falls" competing right now for their business. I am dumbfounded how charges cannot be filed at this time. The marshall pistol whips a 60 year old guy over honking his horn. No wrongdoing was filed for the elderly couple, but yet the Marshall drives away after inflicting permanent physical damage, while holding a gun?
White lives matter!

actually municipalities exist because of the state. The state could remove the city’s charter and it will be integrated back into the county government.

What bible would that be? Would it be your bible? Or the LDS’s bible. Or the new international version of the bible where they take out all gender specific pronoun’s? What if one of the books the first translators took out actually said the Jewish people were going to get wiped out. One of the translators didn’t put it in there because he was Jewish? What if King James, when he decided to do his own translation, decided to take out a few things because he didn’t like how they said.
You know things could have been lost in translation when the books were translated from Hebrew to Greek to Latin and then to English. If he is going to protect his people, why is he doing anything about the Christians under ISIS control? You know from the new testament we are all his people.
Here is a good saying to go by. Get on your knees and pray, then get on your feet and work. Unless you are one of those crazy people who believe Christ will heal you if he wanted you to be healed and you let maggots eat your leg off.

What do you expect from a site that is built this bad and has so many popups. Hell I am at 44 pop ups and adds blocked. I don’t even get that many when I go on the free porn sites.

Maybe the parents should have been more responsible and gotten life insurance so the “widow” wouldn’t be in the situation she is in now.

That is why you have the assets from a regular will go to a trust fund and just be the executor of the trust.

The thing is if you put Obama’s comment in context it’s even worse. You have a woman asking for permission to give her mother a peacemaker. You have an American citizen asking for permission to have something done from a government official. That is bull ****.
The only way it is right if she expects the government to pay for it. That in of it self is a whole bigger problem.

Actually these are good questions to ask. One they can judge you on how long it takes for you to think of an answer. Can analyze the type of question you come up with. Helps determined if you are an ******* by the type of answer you give.

The only problem is that you can’t talk about race unless you agree to these things: All white people are racist. All white people need to pay for the sins of their fathers (and mothers for you feminists out there). Black people can’t be racist. You have to implement programs that help black people even though it destroys another ethnicity.

If the correct grammar didn’t give it away, it should have been how she was talking. No 25 year old girl who talks like that will be on a dating site.

The iranian minister is kind of correct. They don’t know the constitution but the reasons he gave are incorrect.
Congress has already set precedence on not following previous presidents word. For example. Vietnam. We signed a treaty with them but Congress “defunded” the treaty so it was mute.
Congress can pass a bill that will close any treaty. International law is a joke. Iran breaks international law everyday.
The Paris Accords of 1973 were never ratified by the Senate, so no "treaty" existed.
Word is moot.
Constitutional Law and International law are two different sets of laws.
They are similar but not the same, He has the two mixed and kinda combined hoping no one will notice.
The Senators we correct to send the letter, so when it is canceled they will know why.
Actually...the Paris accords are a good comparison. Since the treaty was never ratified by the senate, it became just a promise made by the president. Pretty much what this lousy deal with Iran will become since it has a snowball's chance in global warming hell of ever being ratified by the senate.

I would work harder if I could keep 100% of my paycheck instead of 70%
 March 2, 2015 at 12:35am
Actually it would be constitutional. Unions in the public sector were allowed because of an executive order. All you would need is an executive order to thwart it. What happened was a president issued an executive order allowing unions in the public sector (at the federal level). Then all the states followed.

The government had its biggest growth when I was at home playing video games. I think the government should pay me $48000 a year so I can stay at home and play video games so the government can enjoy that growth once again.
