What about the dead any dying who will never live to such a ripe old age? How dare we discriminate against such unfortunates in our society! Okay an extreme example, but my point is this “can’t do x because it offends group x” is a ludicrous endeavor that will only sever to send everyone’s anger boiling over into complete insanity. Fun fact, people have the right to do something you don’t like just like you have the right to not give them your business. How about we stop making the government the nagging mothers over society and go back to judging ourselves?

I don’t think it is disingenuous to compare the loss of life from black on black crime to when an armed white guy kills a black kid. After all how many hundred died during the trial of Trayvon Martin, did anyone care what their names were? What were their dreams and aspirations? I don’t take black leadership seriously, and it isn’t because they are black, it is because they are so single minded focused that they can’t see all of the corpses they are crawling over while searching for that elusive “white devil.”

To interfere more in our lives of course. Busy bodies who whine about religious people intruding into their affairs but want to control others down to how much air they use up. Heaven help us all, we are ruled by madmen and we all seem stuck in this bad dream we can’t wake up from.

Watermelons (commies with a big green environment loving skin) don’t have eyes. And they have the gall to call us fanatics.

Could be, get him off the front lines for a bit along with the other highway patrol and get the local units back out there to reinforce them. As for the temperament, hard to say, even some of the most even tempered officers break after dealing with situations like this for a while, and I know people like those filming have a bad habit of not showing what thy were doing in the lead up to the situation.

The need to cycle the units out, move in more of the local police so you don’t have to keep putting the same people on the line every night. Everyone has a breaking point, and while I would say it should be common sense not to push someone past it when they have a gun, I wouldn’t put it past these mobs.

Sharpton is dealing with the outside agitators? Great job, they were only shooting at the cops the other night after all.

My response: “Lead FFRF representative to nearest sand pile, tell him to go pound it.”
Or maybe the more classy “Nuts.”

Works fine until there aren’t enough people who can afford to buy their products. It’s in the end a self destructive strategy, but that requires common sense for people to understand.

Yeah, nothing better than initially abandoning your duty to show solidarity while letting the rioter loot and pillage at will, then realizing that you actually really need to do something about.
I do savor the irony that everyone was talking about demilitarizing the police, and now they have to bring in the actual military to deal with the problem.

Well I feel bad for what’s going to happen next, buuut I will also make a case for Clorox in the gene pool, never let anybody tell you that stupidity won’t get you killed. Of course this is probably the same caliber of people who thought raping virgins would cure their AIDs, yeah that didn’t cause a horrific number of other problems.

Ebola isn’t a very practical illness for weaponization due to the way the infection travels, through direct contact with bodily fluids. Plus it is pretty easy to tell when somebody is sick with the illness and that you need to stay away from them.
Now would I put it past the islamofacists or one some other scum infesting the globe to try? Nope, I’m sure they would try.

Some people only respond to force, it is sad but people really do need to accept the fact that some people don’t want to get along or sit down and talk, they want to take what they will and will destroy anything in their way to do so. When that happens, you’ll want to be better at destroying than that guy is.

I did Stephen, unfortunately for him I am one of the people who would defend him, and I’m sure a lot of other people would too, were it not for the fact that we have to constantly make sure they aren’t going to frag us in the back. I would defend him and his right to believe what he wishes, but I increasingly get the feeling that he nor the others on his side will do the same, and I will not stand with someone I can’t trust.

I wasn’t speaking purely about scientists, I was talking about atheists, and last I checked not every scientist or critical thinker was and atheist and vice versa. Tell me something, how many of the so called scientist would be able to repair a car much less know how to build another one? How many biologists could actually make a culture of penicillin which could then be used as medicine? Just because someone is a scientist doesn’t mean they have the knowledge about the facets of modern life.
Besides, humanity has survived a lot of regressions in technology, and saying it is impossible and no one could survive it belies a lack of critical thinking. I don’t want to get rid of them, but you can’t deny which way the wind is blowing, the Islamofacists are on the rise in Europe, Africa and the Middle East, how long until they start here? Unfortunately when they need friends and allies, they speak about lobbing us into the same general “enemy” category, that does not bode well for survival.

The end will come for Dawkins and his kind, if not by the judgments of God by the fact that they are always going to be outnumbered because those religious people breed faster. Unfortunately the hostility being bred on both sides (people trying to get rid of God, and people like the Jihadis) will have to reach its inevitable conclusion, and then who is going to be there to save them? The wolves are no longer at the gates, they are in the walls.
Nonsense. Criitical thinkers and the scientists whose brilliant minds gave you your modern life will always be with us. If they fall, everything falls and you'll be living underground spending the rest of your life doing inventory on your canned foods, toilet paper and bullets.
No actually as the decades go on the number of religious people is going to plummet. I would guess that by the end of this century we will be looking at the remaining religious people as some quaint little group of backwards people whose numbers are as statistically significant as the Amish in the United States.

No, but I’m content to sit back and let him suffer the consequences of his actions and beliefs when the time comes. He’s outnumbered in a hostile world and doesn’t realize that getting rid of the few who would defend him is a poor idea.

I get my butt kicked on a regular basis in these games, but I am always surprised when I take my friends shooting and they aren’t good at/don’t enjoy it. I like those kind of games, but the feeling of a Smith and Wesson or a Armalite in your hands is so much better, if only the ammo didn’t cost so much…

And the OWS crowd, you get to kill cops in multiplayer.

I will say that I did get a little miffed with some of the recent games from Bioware (a subsidy of EA) with homosexual romance options, not because they were gay but because they were so ANNOYING! I purposely got several killed to get them to stop trying to hit on my character.
Besides, I’m thinking of passing on this outing of Battlefield anyway, if I can’t plow through several buildings with a tank doing my best impression of the kool-aid man, then it just isn’t a battlefield game.
