    As usual, everyone here is shooting from the hip. If indeed this reporter was suspended, I’d like to see a written explanation why from the station. Like most ‘stories’ on The Blaze, this is full of holes, missing or skewed facts.

    From NJ myself, I know there was a huge outcry to the station even before the reporter’s story was aired, a concerted efforts by cops who I guess thought that the anti-cop attitude in the community was being glamorized or something. I personally didn’t see it that way, but I can see why those cops thought the airing might inflame the situation.

    Then there was the reporter’s comment as to the reason for this anti cop attitude, laying the blame on there being a lack of family in the community.

    Was he fired? If so, was it one of the above two reasons? Some other reason? As usual we’re fighting amongst ourselves before all the facts are known. Instead of uniting, once again we are being divided, as seems to be happening with every story nowadays.

    God Bless America

    How about a bill that gives the final say to We The People? Let the politicians pass the laws that they see fit. However, during the month of November after a sufficient amount of time elapses after the bill is passed, the final approval/disapproval question passes on to the electorate. Of course this proposal would need to be thought out, but I think if worked properly, much of the crap that is piled onto us can be eliminated.

    Yes it’s normal for a police department to be named in the suit because officers are acting as agents of the police force, but that doesn’t make the system right. If the department is not involved as a whole, there is no reason we the taxpayers should foot the bill of a law suit. If the individual cops and doctors were at fault, the individual cops and doctors should pay. This same model should apply to any work place incident. If the employer didn’t somehow encourage such behavior of their employees, the employer should not be held accountable. As things stand, if this guys wins the suit from the city, what’s to discourage other bad employees elsewhere? If we have to have legislators, the least they could do is to pass legislation that is fair to all. It certainly isn’t fair to employers at present.

    If it looks like a lie,
    swims like a lie,
    quacks like a lie,
    and waddles like a lie
    it is a FREAKIN’ LIE.

    RNM. You can go back to the start of this site and not once have I ever called out someone who is commenting. Keep in mind that as you are not an Obama wing nut, I am not a Palin wing nut. However, I can’t help but be amazed that person after person here is disputing you with real facts and you simply continue to spout nonsense, obviously not reading or at least not absorbing what is honestly being presented to you. In short, you are obviously blind once your mind has been made up and that my friend is a dangerous thing.

    If the initial intent of The Blaze was to become a serious news source, may I suggest they’ve long strayed from their goal. Here are the top 10 stories of the moment. I think of the Inquirer, or the Daily News, or one of the other scandal sheets.

    1 Ann Let’s Internet Ask Her Anything!
    2 HORROR: Mother Sentenced After Committing Unspeakable Crimes Against Her Own Mentally Challenged Son
    3 The Tiny But Very Important Detail About The Woman Who Nearly Fainted at the Obamacare Press Conference
    4 Pastor Resigns After Making Stunning Announcement
    5 ‘Too Many Disabled People’? Arizona Apt Complex Under Fire for Catering to Deaf Community Too Much
    6 ‘Sex in College Park’: College Newspaper Publishes Album of Racy Photos Depicting Students Engaged in Sexually-Themed Behavior
    7 Australian Wildfire Could Produce Another Amazing Natural Phenomenon
    8 Gay Men Use Loophole to Become Oklahoma’s First Legally-Married Same-Sex Couple
    9 Guess Which Dem. Congressman Is Apparently Connected to a Shocking Fundraising Email Involving the KKK
    10 Meet the Man Who’s Used the Obamacare Call Center — and Has Sat on the Phone for More Than 4.5 Hours

    C’mon Glenn, right the ship!

    I don’t think anyone denies climate change. I don’t think anyone disputes that it is not only happening, but has been happening for billions of years. I’m not a scientist nor an expert on the subject, but I think it’s more than likely that humans contribute to a portion of that change, though I suspect our contribution has a minimal effect. I would also think that all animals and all plants contribute to climate change. But when someone writes a letter to the editor to decry the Al Gore beliefs, he or she should certainly be heard, even if a line or so in their letter is technically inaccurate, such as ‘there’s no sign humans have caused climate change’. The LA Times refusal to post such letters should be treated for what it is, and if there are any readers left, they should desert the sinking ship now.

    Sadly, The Blaze has once again screwed up while looking for sensation. This is one of the most uninformative stories I’ve ever read. It tells us nothing whatsoever except a young girl snuck out of her house, got drunk and was involved in sex with another boy.

    Let me try to understand how this works. It’s compulsory that a child gets an education, isn’t it? If a parent kept a child from going to school, that parent could go to jail, no? Now these kids weren’t breaking the law and the school decided to bar them from school. So if these parents were to decide to flaunt, such as boisterously encouraging these boys to keep shooting these toys on their property, would the school then continue to add suspension after suspension, in short, keeping these children from getting an education that the State insists they must have? I’m confused. I would suggest that someone set up a defense fund for these boys and that each and every school board member who voted to suspend the children be sued. Maybe such ‘guardians’ would think twice if they thought they could lose their own house via a lawsuit.

    I have just sent an email to the GOP announcing that after 50 years of voting otherwise, I will no longer vote for ANY Republican candidate. In all honesty, even those GOPers who are considered to be on the Right, would have been left of center in the party in the 60s, when I first began voting. What exists now is only a slower road to doom, but doomsday will come nevertheless.

    How sad to see the same responses here that I saw five years ago. It sadly confirms that unless all mindsets change (and yes, that means almost all of us) we will never win. We need to totally cut our ties from ALL political parties, oppose those ‘authoritarians’ Drudge railed against, meaning all Dems and all RINOs, at the very least, and rally behind candidates whose beliefs are closer to ours, i.e., very limited government. That also should mean that we don’t take sides with anyone because of their party affiliation. Cut our ties NOW!!! Encourage those daring young men in the flying trapezes to bolt their parties and unite to form a new Party whose platform is devoted to Government of the people, by the people and for the people, not for the unions, not for lobbyists, and not for the politicians. Let’s find budding politicians who want to get elected so that they can start to undo various laws and regulations that have made us a country our forefathers would not recognize. Maybe someday, people in my state will once again be able to ride in a car as a passenger or driver without having to wear a seat belt if they don’t want to (…well, that’s a start, isn’t it?) :)

    Gas in Syria. Accusations abound that Assad is killing his own people, though to my mind what has only been proved is that some Syrian people have been gassed; the perp, thought to be Assad, but where’s the proof of that? Still, no matter, even if so…Russia doesn’t want to interfere, China doesn’t want to interfere, India doesn’t want to interfere, Brazil doesn’t want to interfere, and Great Britain doesn’t want to interfere. In fact, no country in the world wants to interfere. Two hundred countries, plus the UN. Yet, our politicians somehow think that it is our right…our duty??? How freaking arrogant! How do those in the third world think of us, as a savior, or as a dangerous enemy? Hey, I’m guessing there are many in Syria who (whether rightfully or wrongfully) have no problem with that regime and who love their country. What hate must be evoked in them when someone bombs their nation?

    Over the last few days, with people online listing the numerous black on white incidents that have occurred, it’s become so obvious that these are deliberate racial murders and are purposely being underreported, if reported at all. I suspect, having lived through the black riots of the 60s, the authorities and the press think they are doing their part to help avoid a repeat performance by squelching all these factual horror stories. To be honest, I think those riots actually stopped when the press stopped overly publicizing, so this may be a legitimate tactic, even though it does muzzle a free press. Further, I’ve read of fifteen recent violent murders where the victim was white and the perps black, and an odd thought struck. I can’t remember EVER hearing of the feds ever charging any black of racial murder.

  • August 21, 2013 at 1:24am

    An interesting observation, at least to me. Yesterday, when I first heard this reported, my gut reaction was that the perps were white. I said to my wife, because of their age, they probably would only get life, but to me that’s three wasted lives that cost taxpayers millions of upkeep and for what? Even though one of them could be my own kid, it’s best they all be punished by death. Now I know the perps are black and my choice of death hasn’t changed. However, when I now voice that, I will be called a racist. Doesn’t black America see how they are being led to this final destruction by the likes of Sharpton, Jackson, et al. Mark my words, this story will turn from the current to the absurd. The hucksters will turn the perps into the victims and the black community will become outraged, further separating the races from being one by alienating all.

    First Big Brother tells us what we can’t say, now they are telling us what we have to say. I say we sue them because they failed to properly instructed us what to say or not to say…What’d I say?

  • August 8, 2013 at 9:25am

    Whoa. I came across this story, which has the picture of the sign in the window, and I thought, ‘What is TIF…what does that sign even mean?’ Then upon reading the story I find that a city has determined that the words are political? What the heck is political about it? Who determines what political is??? Now anyone in government can determine what OUR words and writings mean? This woman is perfectly right to sue and she shouldn’t back down, unless the unAmerican politicians who are fighting her right to freedom step down from office!!!

  • July 22, 2013 at 8:15am

    @GMHUNT. Hispanics are not white? So those Europeans that come from Italy and France are white, but those that live along France’s border are not? Why do we allow ourselves to become entangled in such semantics? Doing so plays right into the hands of the race baiters. It allows the us against them, divide and conquer tactics that are so harmful to this world.

  • July 17, 2013 at 8:36am

    It would seem that this could be the fight to win. Let all the Republicans take the ‘high ground’ FOR the unions. Agree with them that they (and millions of others like them) are being punished; and declare the only way to fix the problem is to REPEAL the monstrosity.
