I think we are taking all of this way too lightly because *they are kids* and the possibility that our 1st Amendment isn:t and won*t somehow be undermined. While we are focused on some real external threats like radical Islam, my fear is that too many people are spending energy opposing those focused on some not-as-real threats like Climate Change, BLM, Transgenders in public restrooms, gay rights. Meanwhile, another serious serious threat has been quietly building and that is this PC, anti-1st amendment, offensive-speech paranoia, particularly among young people. If ever there was a time and a reason for large, counter protests, to confront these anti-American idiots and educate the population now is it… that is, if it:s not already too late.
“Will the president’s resignation make any difference?” You watch who they hire as the replacement. That person will say all the things these people want to hear, they will hire the minorities and appoint them as chairs to all sorts of new committees but nothing will actually change to solve the problem this president was accused of not handling. If anything, the problems will get “worse” but only by perception and that will be used as the reason why these new racial programs will need more funding.

Its the same black mob mentality you see at the malls and state fairs. No one knows why they are all beating the perverbial ^&%& out of someone (in this case the UoM president).. they are just all joining in because the person next to them said so.

Dude, just click the “free” spellcheck button. This isn’t an isolated typo.

I love living in the” same soace” as others… sometimes I even bath in it.

And for that matter, and I dont think I am out of line for pointing this out, generally speaking, blacks slowly (like real slow) cross streets in front of cars, walk on red lights slowing cars traveling through intersections, and jaywalk stopping traffic altogether just because they think they can? Lets not even get into the issue of lines at amusement parks. I see it all the time. Yes, others do it too but 8 times out of 10 the person is black. People mostly shrug their shoulders and go on with life and you seldom hear them complain because they don’t want to called racist but this really happens at a disproportionate rate.
More times than I can count all the listed behavior, plus if you get stuck behind one in a single lane with no passing, they will drive sloww & erratic when they notice I'm white, then shoot me a dirty look when I finally get clear of them, I have seen all kinds of black aggressive driving techniques designed to piss-off whitey.
It's in their "Handbook"....

I, for one, am glad she referenced Prof Henry Louis Gates. Wasn’t that incident proven (not in court) to be a case of a police officer responding to a 911 call from a neighbor and doing his due diligence to make sure the person breaking into the house was also the owner. And wasn’t it Gates who was the one out of line? And didn’t Obama basically get his foot in mouth handed to him at the ensuing beer summit with that same police officer?

I did too… back then there was little fear that bystanders would jump in, no video to judge every decision you make, people who would thank you for disciplining their out of control kid, no lawsuits because you breathed in the direction of someone’s poor baby, no Black lives matter hysteria, no Obama, etc.
 October 30, 2015 at 11:22am
I think they needed more cops for crowd control before jumping in themselves… just a guess. I know I wouldn’t want to be scuffling with someone, not even a teenager, if there was potential others would jump in and grab my service revolver while my hands were occupied restraining someone. Plus, too break up the fight may have required some force and then we’d be talking about how the cop body slammed and restrained the kid… blah blah blah

This is an all out fist fight between a boy and a girl and all people want to talk about is a taser? Everyone is a Monday morning quarterback. Unless you have more than two police officers to break up the fight and others to keep any onlookers from jumping in (gee that never happens) the taser seems to be the best option. What if the cop didn’t act soon enough and the next punch that landed rendered one of the kids brain dead? Then we’d be talking about the white racist cop didn’t defend the black life… blah blah blah

How many people realize that when an unarmed person gets into a physical confrontation with a lone police officer, that police officer has to factor in that getting over powered and losing the fight could result in the combatant taking away his/her gun and using it against that officer? That they don’t know if the person could be on meth or some drug that gives them near super human traits? And often in situations where there is no partner or back up watching your back. It can be a tough decision to know at which point to draw that line and unfortunately for a few men and women in uniform they made that decision too late or not at all and died from their own gun. Yes, in some cases the decision to fire is made too soon. But we can sit and judge these quick life and death decisions in the relative safe confines of our home, days later when we have more information.

I’m actually a little shocked and ashamed at some of these comments. We are so quick to blame the “thug” when its a black kid getting pulled over for no good reason but all so understanding when it’s a white kid. Bottom line, for whatever dumb ass reason a cop pulls you over (and yes, this was definitely one of them), don’t fight or argue with him or her. Don’t withhold your ID. Don’t put them in a situation in which they have to taze you. Don’t punch, wrestle, grab, shove, or charge at a police officer. And for goodness sakes, don’t do drugs.
What are you talking about? The majority of comments here say the kid screwed up and lost his life as a result!

I never before thought it personally appropriate to say liberalism is a form of insanity but after watching that clip and hearing people turn logic upside down.. those liberal viewpoints are insane.

blah blah blacks shooting cops. I want to hear more stories about the NAU campus frat boy fight/shooting (or was it self-defense? TBD) sound like it was similar to the Umpqua CC massacre. It helps back people’s “feelings” about gun control on a day Obama is visiting Oregon to discuss exactly that.

Bingo! Spot on! Amen! You said it! That’s right! Preach it! I wholeheartedly agree :)

But didn’t he win big on Dancing with the Stars? After all, this publicity made him a “star” and a “hero” didn’t it? Where are all of the starry eyed ESPN announcers and writers who were making this guy out to be the next Jackie Robinson. As if there were hundreds of gay football players just waiting for this last door of discrimination to be opened so they too would have the opportunity being denied to them.

And what happened to the police chief after he posted this is a BIG part of the problem. Too many truths spoken.

While it’s criminal behavior with no justification think about it…what would REALLY provoke kids to attack a ref like that? The most likely reason is either the ref did say something racial, or, the kids were mislead to believe he said something. Not saying they couldn’t have done it simply because they were punks mad about a few calls but a racial slur would give them more of a motive. To be clear, not justified by any means. The kids and the entire football program should be suspended. If the ref is guilty he should be removed as well.
September 9, 2015 at 9:27pm
Supposedly the ref called them dirty Mexicans. Not black.
