    The issue is that those shootings are not all against blacks and are not “epidemic”. No its not an epidemic but then again I have never seen a report of police shooting a 12 year old white kid in the suburbs who was carrying a pellet gun, airsoft gun or BB gun. And no I don’t accept the preconceived notion that a 12 year old black kid is necessarily more dangerous than a white 12 year old with the same toy gun.

    “The purpose of this video is to show that THIS incident was a good shoot.” BS the purpose of this post was to obtain a bunch of cheap bait clicks from individuals who want to use it as evidence that the claims of unjustified shootings are people stirring the pot. And the only situations where I can accept a policemen shooting a SUSPECT, as they are not convicted of anything at the point of arrest, is when the suspect threatens them or bystanders with lethal force. Police don’t get to use the BS Stand Your Ground defense because they felt threatened. They have weapons, they can call for backup, etc. etc. But thanks for most of you making my point. And as usual Foowhatever… you have nothing of merit to say.

    Ok let’s just move beyond the fact that you accept what the uncle says because that’s what you want to believe happened. Its not as though the guys fiance and uncle wouldn’t come up with an explanation in order to help the guy. But even if some of what they say is true, in a civilized society you don’t get to beat the crap out of people and put them in prison for saying something offensive. You want to threaten them in order to make them run fine, but beating them to the extent he did is neither justified nor legal. And to think it is legal is to agree with the dozen or so completely innocent individuals in Florida that have been shot and killed by individuals who got off by using the Stand Your Ground law. And the 12 I reference include a drunk college kid who fell asleep on the wrong apartment balcony. In the morning when he attempted to slide the LOCKED sliding door the owner greeted him with a shot gun and killed him. The owner of course claimed he felt threatened by the college kid who was nothing more than a disoriented neighbor. You want to call the police on the kid, fine. But to shoot and kill him before any inquiry or any real manifestation of a threat is a crime, it is not Standing Your Ground.

    If the term evangelical the description refers to evangelical christian then there is no arguement, he can’t be. Because if you claim to be a christian then you have no choice then to accept the bible as the word of god and follow it. Its really that simple and not up for discussion or negotiation. If you don’t want to follow the fundamental text of the christian faith then choose another name for your religion. Its similar to gay individuals who want to change the definition of marriage, you can say all you want but the word has an accepted definition and it isn’t the union between two men or two women. It is beyond belief to me how the ME generation really believes it is all about them and therefor their perspective on things somehow has relevance beyond themselves. The absurd arrogance of ME generation christians to believe and publicly state that they are “more” christian than their parents because they “accepted” JC as their personal savior. As though their parents didn’t do essentially the same thing 1,000 times in their lives through any number of church prayers. This country is going down the tubes because we have an increasing number of selfish individuals who place their own ideology, their own beliefs and their own wants and needs above their community, above their country and above humanities. And rather than be the superior people they think they are, they are nothing more than selfish brats.

    “Maybe the reason the Trumpbots are losing jobs to China is they suck at math.” Check the stats champ, the states where the kids suck at math are the same one’s where the “enlightened” legislators care more about injecting creationism into the curriculum rather than beefing up math. I am one of the independents who voted in the republican primary to insure a sociopath like cruz did not get the nomination. If you think cruz should hold any federal office, then you champ suck at choosing leaders.

    “Kitty, you and Trump supporters are more dangerous to this country than ISIS.” Ah yes another great example of a group who claims not to be full of hate and not the group that is dividing this country. Leave the attention getting lines for Ann Coulter and the distant wannabee dana loesch. At least fake being educated by saying semi-educated things. If you really believe the large corporations and wealthy give a crap about conservative or liberal then you are so far from understanding what has really brought this country to where it is that it is sad. Since the mid 1980′s its only been about money and unfortunately as witnessed by the criminal acts that brought us the bank bailouts, its been about how much you have and not how you got it. We have the best politicians money can buy on both sides of the isle and the same large corporations and wealthy own all of them.

    “I like Ted, he’s fine,” Trump said. “I don’t need his endorsement. If he gives it to me, I will not accept it.” This is a great example where Trump needs to table his ego and let the issue be what it was. Now he appears as petty and vindictive as Cruz…. which is not how you differentiate yourself and not how you make it about cruz.

    kate let’s be clear about this… you are actually using your companies bias against Trump, primarily due tot he fact his campaign has not paid you for supportive posts, to get cheap bait clicks. Pretty sad, pretty sad and a clear indication of how low journalism has become.

    Probably, but no more than individuals who claim that blacks support the democratic party because of “social” giveaway programs like food stamps, which by the way are lobbied for by large food producers and food suppliers, not the poor. Why, because they get to sell $50 billion in food that would otherwise cause an over supply and drive prices down. It is interesting that hospitals, physicians and pharmaceutical companies accept lower payments for Medicaid patients, but food stamps do not carry a discount. Clearly, that is not something the food stamp recipients lobbied for. Follow the money people and tak10 minutes to actually understand who gets the lion share of federal spending. And its not the poor.

    Easy one, good shoot. But this type of story doesn’t change the facts of any situation where the treatment or shooting of suspects is uncalled for and unjustified. And to present a post like this or interpret it as providing any rational to view unjustified treatment or shooting of a CITIZEN is ignorant at best.

    Ok well whatever drug your on should be reduced by at least 50%. There is no conspiracy to change fox news into a left wing news outlet and for the real morons in the room, media companies could care less about ideology, deeply held beliefs or bias. They are in the media business to make money. And fox news knew it could not compete head up with the established networks, so it adopted a conservative bias to serve a growing market segment. Seriously, if you actually believe that Ann Coulter, Rush, GB, etc. wouldn’t change their bias and tone if their ratings and sponsors demanded a change you are either delusional beyond hope or again overdosing. Its about $$ pure and simple.

    It takes a real journalist to phrase a $20 + million payout as a resignation as though he was not a part of the strategic decision to protect the larger interests and paid handsomely to do the right thing. The powers that be will and Gretchen Carlson and the others will be complicit in making sure no criminal charges are brought against him. Why, because they will be reap a pile of undeserved money also. But hey it makes for a good bait click and makes people pretend that somehow the culture he created and reinforced was unknown to the Murdock’s who were too busy counting the money Ailes was making for them. Trust me if he had delivered two quarters of declining profits he would have been out 10 years ago. This has zero to do with Gretchen Carlson…. but then again she doesn’t deserve the money she will be paid to walk away from the claims.

    “Instead of going to Mars, we invaded the Middle East,” he said. “It’s time to end the era of stupid wars and rebuild our country.” This is without question the smartest thing that was said at the convention and reducing runaway military spending is the best weapon against our deficits. And for the low information voters who are going to reference food stamps which actually are welfare for the large food producers and food suppliers (the folks who actually lobby for it) and Medicaid which benefits hospitals, physicians and pharmaceutical companies……do yourself a favor and get informed.

    Seriously, is your mind so small that you feel that if a some black police officer used undue force on a white suspect the behavior by these white police is somehow justified. And let’s be clear this site, fox news would report on such incidents if it brought eyeballs or uninformed comments like yours.

  • July 22, 2016 at 11:05am

    Perhaps true and how said it is that you view it in racial terms instead of the actual issue, which is police using undo force on any citizen based on the situation and actions of the ACCUSED. The key term being accused as the polices job is detain and arrest individuals, not judge them, not try them and not sentence them. Until any citizen is convicted of the crime the police claim they have committed or arrest them for, they are a citizen and the fact is the police work for them.

  • [5] July 22, 2016 at 10:59am

    How said is it that you take a side and make such an ignorant statement based on some notion of ideology. Yea, it takes a really tough cop, armed with a billy club and gun to throw a woman around. Would be interesting to see our reaction if it was two black cops and they treated your wife, girlfriend or mother like this. But of course blacks deserve it though be virtue of their color. Look no further folks if your looking for the definition of racism. Because if you don’t treat this woman as any other individual until she displays some behavior that justifies being thrown around….it is racism. And any intelligent, educated individual of any color will tell you that. Particularly the founding fathers.

    Talk about BS, if this was a speech by cruz the blaze would make sure that they presented these fact checks in such a way to benefit cruz and certainly discredit the PRESIDENT. And for those morons who refute the facts as not accurate or true, you are indeed the low information voter that Trump hopes you are. Your are the easy ones to sway. But despite you and your angry mob mentality, I will vote for Trump because he may well indeed demand the large corporations and wealthy begin to care about american half as much as they do their wealth. And will indeed roll back the one sided trade agreements that only benefit the wealthy and demand the congress either cut spending across the board or raise taxes. And not let them take the coward way out most republican state legislators do by raising fees and taxes on the lower and middle class.

    Perhaps you should spare us the typical ideological knee jerk reaction and actually read what Stewart actually said. And it is spot on. I am supporting Trump primarily so that sociopaths like cruz didn’t get the nomination and a typical politician like hillary who is owned by the large corporations and wealthy don’t control the white house. And if you took 10 minutes to do some research you would realize the the majority of federal spending goes to overpaid defense contractors, overpaid physicians, overpaid pharmaceutical companies, overpaid IT contractors, overpaid infrastructure companies and overpaid food suppliers and producers (food stamps). Yea food stamps which a corporate welfare program lobbied for by the large food supplierd food producers. But then again you wouldn’t know the true if you tripped over it.

    Ah so your reaction is to deflect also and use the relative context argument. The only thing I can give Manafort is that he is not as sleezy as Cruz’s initial campaign manager. You know the guy who was behind spreading rumors that Carson and Cruz had left the race to steal votes in Iowa and Florida. How about you focus on the cowardly psychotics like cruz and kaisch who steal won’t admit they lost and lost big. My support of Trump is rooted in the belief that he will make the large corporations and wealthy support this country and start to pay for the benefits they receive. It doesn’t take a great, capable CEO to move jobs to countries where you can exploit slave labor and hurt community after community in the US. But of course the wealthy folks sitting on the board who benefit from such anti-patriotic reward these CEO’s by elevating their compensation to 300X the average employee, instead of the 30X that existed in the 1960′s.

    Duh….. and you don’t think the staffer was paid to take responsibility for the “mistake”. Trump figured out a long time ago that individuals who waste their time watching reality TV shows like dancing with the stars and duck family whatever are low information voters who can be swayed by any catchy phrase that lasts no longer then 5 secs. Having said that, I support Trump because I believe he will start making the wealthy and the large corporations actually pay for the benefits they receive from this country. And stop their never ending, undeserved accumulation of wealth from low and middle class americans. Who do you think benefited when pension plan were abolished? Who do you think benefited when the banks were bailed out?… Seriously, start following the money and get informed.
