A kidnapping. Sue the cops, the CPS, and the neighbor for kidnapping, false imprisonment, false police report. Article says these kids were detained for a total of 5 1/2 hours and only returned to the parents at 11 p.m. This means they were walking home at 5:30 (supper time) and still daylight. Questions that need answers: Are there sex predators living in the area that the police are worried about? How many child abductions have there been in that vicinity?

Agree. The police need to be allowed to investigate all the details including the time lapses. How is it that the person taking the video picks up at a point where the evidence is overwhelming against the officer. For sure, the cop is going to get the full brunt of the DOJ making up for their failed Travon & Bear Brown verdicts. And like Travon/Bear Brown stories, Scott’s parent immediately came forward and said that he would never-ever do anything but obey authorities – notwithstanding the fact that he was fleeing police, had multiple arrest warrants for failed child support, and who knows what else is yet to be divulged.
"– notwithstanding the fact that he was fleeing police, had multiple arrest warrants for failed child support, and who knows what else is yet to be divulged."
All which have no bearing on the officer's decision to shoot Scott in the back when not in personal danger.
You apparently are not concerned with facts. I said the officer went way over the line in using excessive force. He did NOT commit murder by the standard most would use. There was no premeditation. There was no malice.
A prior criminal history is most relevant to any officer stopping someone. Past history is a good indicator of future behavior, especially in criminals.
Everyone that day made poor decisions. Mr.Scott for being a criminal and choosing to react in a criminal way when stopped by the officer. The officer in his poor judgement to shoot a fleeing criminal in the back 8 times.
As far as your Stalin comment, unfortunately I agree. The average American is a criminal and most don’t even know it. Laws in this country are encroaching on everyone’s freedom. Couple this with the current administration which has already set the precedent of enforcing only laws “they” deem enforceable. What is even worse is the current administration not only selectively enforces laws but chooses the groups in a highly biased manner on which to enforce those selected laws. Yes I most assuredly do agree.
You are most astute to surmise that the US, under the current administration, is certainly heading toward a version of Stalin’s USSR.
"You are most astute to surmise that the US, under the current administration, is certainly heading toward a version of Stalin’s USSR."
The country has been heading in this direction for decades. This administration is doing the same thing previous administrations have done. The State perpetuates it's own existence.
Agreed Acid. Both sides do it.
The Democrats though have the specific distinction of perpetuating the socialist state through government programs. Wilson through the establishment of a Central Bank. FDR through the establishment of the leviathan of government programs Aka “The New Deal”. LBJ just fed the leviathan to an unbelievable level with the “Great Society” programs. Clinton practically destroyed the military with his brand of social engineering. The current president has gone way beyond anyone before him.
Granted, every time the Dems did the overreach thing with all their socialism, the Republicans could have pulled it back. They didn’t, well none except Ronald Reagan.
That being said the burgeoning socialist state in America is not the reason for the poor decisions made by these TWO men, which led to one’s unfortunate death.
"They didn’t, well none except Ronald Reagan."
Despite the Right's historiography, Reagan grew the State. Carter actually started the deregulation of the airlines. Reagan increased tariffs significantly. He increased military spending by leaps and bounds and he approved the largest increase in Social Security taxes (which countered much of the reorganization of tax brackets that occurred under his administration).
Reagan talked a libertarian rhetoric, but was a typical politician.
There wouldn’t have been a Socialist Security without FDR. Carter was the worst president ever until the current one.
O and Acid
Democrats, like the current administration, pass everything by deception. When the SSA was passed statistically the average wage earner which in 1935 was the male head of household lived to the ripe old age of 59.9. So the law was designed to accrue money from persons it would never pay. Of course the original law was amended almost immediately to include a host of persons never sold to the American public as participants at the outset.
Medicare, Medicaid, Food Stamps and a host of other "great Society" programs had the inevitability of fraud and corruption built into them from the very beginning.
Fraud and corruption have exploded geometrically under the current administration.
Republicans are not perfect. I never said that. If it hadn't been for Nixon, the US would NOT be dealing with the fiasco that is China. If it hadn't been for Eisenhower and his very poor foreign policy, we most likely wouldn't have had the fiasco of Vietnam. Reagan created a mess with making a holiday for MLK in January. We most certainly wouldn't have the racial mess we now do if that hadn't happened.
So no Republicans are not blameless in the downward spiral. Democrats on the other hand have always been the driving force behind the archaic notion of socialism in this country.

Discrimination against men (especially white men through t.v. ads) is running rampant in this country. One particularly telling and disgusting t.v. ad shows a woman and her husband meeting with a banker. She walks in and slams her feet on the bankers desk and makes a demand, while her husband weakly says “I’ll take a water”. Then it shows her marching out the door with her husband trailing several feet back as she thrusts her arm out victoriously.
@NoU4EN: Or, how about the ad for a laxative, I think, showing a woman keeping her family "in balance" while her husband, portrayed by some stumbling schlub, can't walk two feet without falling down.
There are countless ads like this polluting the airwaves & corrupting family values.
The guy in question was a nerdy looking guy, if anything this is offensive to nerds. Are you a nerd who is skinny as a rail with coke bottle glasses? Besides, if anyone is offended by commercials or even swayed by how commercials portray people then you're already sipping the Kool-Aid. It's a senseless commercial designed to bring in certain people. This one, obviously, is to sway women to that company. There are also commercials that portray men in the stereotypical way as well.

Blacks comprise 12.6% of our population. Of that, less than 8% are in the military age group. Of that 8%, take away anyone who is not eligible for military service – those thousands of supposedly “over-represented” incarcerated black men, unwed women with children, etc. and the grouping of blacks ‘available’ for military service is probably less than 6%. Conclusion: If blacks comprise 10% of the service, they already exceed the ‘quotas’ that we’re told don’t exist.
Actually, the Army is guilty of white-male discrimination. I supervised a superior NCO who left the Army because he couldn’t get promoted despite exceptional evaluations, four Meritorious Service Medals, many Army Achievement Medals, unequaled skills and leadership abilities. There were only ethnic and female names on the promotion list. He didn’t stand a chance. Lucky for him, he was snatched up immediately in the IT workforce.

Obama – the ONLY person in the entire U.S. to have a social security number issued from a state that he never lived in. Obama – the ONLY person in the U.S. to reuse a social security number which belonged to a man from Connecticut who just happened to pass away in Hawaii where Obama’s grandmother was a registrar in a government office. Yup, you have been blowing something.

While you pretend to attack his credentials, you gave yourself away as a racist with your ‘sponsor’ comment. Guess you didn’t bother to do any research about his accomplishments despite his disability. He is a remarkable man of which you are uninformed.

His announcement comes on the heels of this week’s announcement that DHS Deputy Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is being charged with allegedly using his position to help get visas for foreigners at the behest of powerful democrats – and Reid was on that “A-list”. These foreigners were involved in politically connected projects. Remember one such project: Harry and Rory Reid brought China’s ENN Group into Nevada with their plan to build a $5 billion solar energy complex outside of Laughlin. ENN also was purchasing 14 square miles of land from Clark County for $4.5 million, less than one-eighth of the assessed $38.6 million. This was happening about the same time as the Bundys were getting forced off their land. And then there’s another Rory Reid deal with China and a casino. What a wicked web we weave…..
The mess in Clark County runs much deeper than the media let out. The land the Bundy's use to graze their cattle has the only good water source on it. The interstate there has a new 3 million dollar exchange put in recently at the request of the Reid's. There are three new casinos built near the new exchange and the only thing keeping more from being built is water. The so called endangered tortoise is being defended by a environmental group that is using a law firm to sue for the cattle removal and both are funded by Soros. Soros is pushing for the depletion of our ability to produce food as he has invested heavily in over seas food production. Its all a big web of deceit...

Norquist (we know you or your people are reading this site): Gaffney has been making these claims since at least 2011. Your response has been to call him a whack job, hissy fit, a sad person, self-absorbed, say a prayer for him, etc. Why haven’t you sued him? Why have you received the ‘hands-off’ approach in the GOP, even after Representative Frank Wolf denounced you on the House floor in 2011, calling you out for connections to ties to Alamoudi and Al-Arian? We’d also like to hear about your support for the ground zero Mosque. Last night, you said you believed that the ‘loan’ had been paid back – $20K seed money from Alamoudi to start your organization Islamic Free Market Institute. Seeing as this is a huge issue, shouldn’t you definitively know if it has or has not been repaid? Gaffney made the claim that two men (Alamoudi and Sami al-Arian) later convicted of terrorism were in your office on 9-11. A claim you deny. Why haven’t you insisted that Gaffney be given a lie detector test? Have you sued him for defamation? Message to Glenn – set up a lie detector test for Gaffney.

Krauthammer needs to read Cruz’ bio and reconsider his own comments. Cruz has been involved in conservative thinking groups since he was 13 years old. Cruz’ list of academic and participatory accomplishments is extensive. The guy is off the charts smart – top of all his classes (no sealed records for him). No, he may not have been a governor but he has way, way more credentials than a community organizer.
