    6. Garner did not die at the scene of the confrontation. He suffered cardiac arrest in the ambulance taking him to the hospital and was pronounced dead about an hour later.

    7. Much has been made of the fact that the use of chokeholds by police is prohibited in New York City. But officers reportedly still use them. Between 2009 and mid-2014, the Civilian Complaint Review Board received 1,128 chokehold allegations.

    Patrick Lynch, president of the New York City Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, said: “It was clear that the officer’s intention was to do nothing more than take Mr. Garner into custody as instructed, and that he used the takedown technique that he learned in the academy when Mr. Garner refused.”

    8. The grand jury began hearing the case on Sept. 29 and did not reach a decision until Wednesday, so there is much testimony that was presented that has not been made public.

    9. The 23-member grand jury included nine non-white jurors.

    10. In order to find Officer Pantaleo criminally negligent, the grand jury would have had to determine that he knew there was a “substantial risk” that Garner would have died due to the takedown.

    The Mainstream Media doesn’t tell these facts:
    1. There is no doubt that Garner was resisting an arrest for illegally selling untaxed cigarettes. Former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik put it succinctly: “You cannot resist arrest. If Eric Garner did not resist arrest, the outcome of this case would have been very different,” he told Newsmax. “He wouldn’t be dead today.

    “Regardless of what the arrest was for, the officers don’t have the ability to say, ‘Well, this is a minor arrest, so we’re just going to ignore you.’”

    2. The video of the July 17 incident clearly shows Garner, an African-American, swatting away the arms of a white officer seeking to take him into custody, telling him: “Don’t touch me!”

    3. Garner, 43, had history of more than 30 arrests dating back to 1980, on charges including assault and grand larceny.

    4. At the time of his death, Garner was out on bail after being charged with illegally selling cigarettes, driving without a license, marijuana possession and false impersonation.

    5. The chokehold that Patrolman Daniel Pantaleo put on Garner was reported to have contributed to his death. But Garner, who was 6-foot-3 and weighed 350 pounds, suffered from a number of health problems, including heart disease, severe asthma, diabetes, obesity, and sleep apnea. Pantaleo’s attorney and police union officials argued that Garner’s poor health was the main cause of his death.

    6. Garner did not die at the scene of the confrontation.

    It is very weird that Oregon was the first U.S. state to make it legal for a doctor to prescribe a life-ending drug to a terminally ill patient of sound mind who makes the request. Yet, a prison warden cannot have access to the drug for using on death row prisoners…..
    My understanding is this ‘drug’ puts one to sleep, and death occurs about one hour later.

    2 Corinthians 5:8
    We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.
    Jesus actually talked more about Hell than he did about heaven. It is a real place.

    I also have this problem. I get Glenn’s email, and then when I go to the Blaze I get a pop-up to sign up for email….seems as if they could check before popping up that ad! Too many ads makes the site less then fun to read!

    What ever happened to those old signs that said, “We reserve the right to refuse service to…..”??? What happened to that right?

    I wonder if they were to go ahead and perform the ceremony, but add in all the verses that reject homosexuality? And put those verses on their walls? Such as: 1 Timothy 1:10
    for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine….

    A simple fix would be to rename the school to Trinity Western MUSLIM University and there would be no dissent at all.

    When in AZ you see “desert landscaping”, but in CA lawns, flowers, and bushes are everywhere. Our CA lawns get watered, they grow, then we mow them, then fertilize, then water, then mow, it is an endless cycle of wasted water. The typical suburban lawn consumes 10,000 gallons of water above and beyond rainwater each year.

    They should not be baptizing babies anyway, Jesus was dedicated to the Lord as a child and baptized as a man. We should follow this example rather than some tradition. The Foursquare Church does.

    You are correct and it does not say Full Grown animals either, which further reduces space and food and water requirements.

  • April 3, 2014 at 11:15pm

    And people forget that the animals did not necessarily have to be full-grown.

    There are tithes (meaning a ‘tenth’ or 10%). This is Gods. Here is a verse:Malachi 3:10
    Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may be food in My house, And try Me now in this,” Says the Lord of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven And pour out for you such blessing That there will not be room enough to receive it.
    Anything you give over that is considered an offering. So if you give a tithe to the church, in my opinion, the church should use it for what they need to run the church (pay the Pastors and the light bill etc.). An offering can be designated to whatever ministry the giver designates (missions, building fund, etc.).

    “Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine. He was priest of God Most High, and he blessed Abram, saying, “Blessed be Abram by God Most High, Creator of heaven and earth. And praise be to God Most High, who delivered your enemies into your hand.” Then Abram gave him a tenth of everything.”
    —Genesis 14:18-20
    Right from the start (before the law) 10% – a tithe – which means ‘tenth’, was given. It all through both the old AND new testaments.

    “I worship nothing” ? Actually they do, anything their money goes to is their “God”; a car, their house, a boat, sports, etc. Anything they like is a God to them. We all have a God, it is just they don’t want the God of the bible.

    Will you PLEASE discontinue any comments about this overrated numbskull? Who really cares what he says and if you keep reminding us of his idiotic comments it makes us respond, thereby increasing his popularity! The less said about him the better…..

    I see this so often and don’t mean to pick on picketwire, but the word is not loose
    Not firmly or tightly fixed in place; detached or able to be detached.
    “a loose tooth”
    but lose To be deprived of or cease to have or retain (something).

    Give up and let Glenn Beck have it!

    What twisted logic Juan uses to justify Obama “care”. Obamacare includes abortion and maternity coverage. Assume you are a 60 year old couple, why would you want that, moreover, why would you want to pay extra to have it? So, it is Obamacare that is ripping off consumers.
