I could go on. But if you disobey a cop they will hurt you.

Cops will defend to the death (yours) the right to claim their lives are in danger when someone doesn’t follow commands. Why let something like deafness or a diabetic attack get in the way of an opportunity to use excessive force?
people forget all the bad warrant searches that have happened. I remember the one where cops shot an old cancer survivor after breaking in his door with a no knock warrant.
People also want to think this is a new phenomenon, but it has been due to the increase of hand held videos that have exposed what has been going on for years. Cops are no more or less likely to be law abiding citizens than any other segment of the population.

I’ll post on racial issues on The Blaze because I’m mostly anonymous and it’s a place where I don’t care who agrees/disagrees with me.
But I won’t do so on Facebook for several reasons. The first is I have minority and liberal friends who may misunderstand me, either accidentally or on purpose. When communicating on social media it’s easy to misinterpret things. I also have a few co-workers on Facebook and I don’t want personal beliefs to interfere with work.
Lastly, I also have friends/relatives who actually may be a little racist and I don’t want them agreeing with what I said, then adding comments that distort my original meaning. If I say “BLM is turning into a terrorist organization” I could get lifelong friends who think I hate all Black people, or I could get friends who reply “Blacks who riot should all be shot down in the street like animals,” then I get associated with that remark.
People aren’t rational when it comes to racism. If you want to have a real conversation face to face, fine. But if you do it over social media, somebody will twist your words and use them against you. And what you post on social media lasts forever.
While I enjoy blaming Obama for the racial division, your post makes me wonder just how much is due to social media? If social media disappeared, would the problems ease? I know the genie is out of the bottle, but I wonder.
It is true. People have a hard time trying to deal with sensitive issues like racism. its easy to bark at the other person than ask why they said it. for me, I just leave the whole racism thing behind. in my mind, partaking in racist topics is only gonna make racism more powerful. The only way to let the fire die out is to stop giving it wood. if people do that, racism would virtually be non existent by today
So true so I'll tell you what I think. The problem in New Orleans. Who ever thought it was wise to build a city 10 meters below sea leavel and fill it with blacks is a F in genius.

A bunch of drunk, arrogant, foreign thugs tried to destroy a person’s business. Then they lie about it to officials. They’re an embarrassment to the US and to the Olympics and I hope they’re banned for life from the Olympics and ever representing the US in anything else. I don’t have a problem with violent criminals having a gun pulled on them. And forced to pay for the damage they did? Good for the Brazilians.
Drunk idiots acting stupid when they’re in a foreign country as guests. And they just cost themselves millions in endorsements. Geez.

I expect a public apology from all the people who voted for Trump in the primaries for forcing the worst candidate in the history of the Republican party on us after he loses to the Clinton in November in the worst political slaughter since Reagan took 49 out of 50 states in 1984.
That is, if Trump doesn’t drop out of the race, using his famous “I wasn’t treated fairly” excuse so he doesn’t get seen as a loser.

Jamestaggartakaobama, there is no “city” sheriff. A sheriff is an elected official in charge of all law enforcement in the county. He also runs the jail system. A city will usually have a police chief who is appointed, but the sheriff is also has jurisdiction within city limits.

Just pretend I gave everybody a thumbs up. Too many good comments to catch up on.

My arsenal of democracy says they shall not pass. (Yeah, you just described me. I have the AR, AK, Glock 23c, 1911, high cap 9mm, another 9mm for concealed carry, several .22s, a semi auto shotgun for trap shooting, even a .25 I ended up with that someone gave it to me.)

My AR, AK and my Lee Enfield are all sighted in at 100 yards. One day I was looking out my front window, wondering how well I judge distances. Out of curiosity I stepped off 100 paces in a couple different directions. Without realizing it I just set up my field of fire.
Coming into my neighborhood with a bottle and a lit rag would be a really bad idea.

David Clarke, the guy you see on Fox news everyday, is the sheriff. If they’re getting a pass it’s from him. And I agree, that statement is inciting a riot.

Wrong again, INTHEBROTHERHOOD. You’re thinking too small. I said the Catholic Church is the largest charitable organization in the world. You’re thinking United States.
ask yourself.....Why would the top man at the vatican have to sneek out? maybe he didn't want the homeless to know it was him? Not....phony story
He had a $100.000 motorcycle?... not ... can't imagine building a homeless shelter for less than that...phony story
He had to take lay persons bonus money to give to the poor? wow...just wow...
The german bishop was creating waves , and got caught spending the vaticans money.
His renault is costing more money to keep him safe than if he rode in the official car.
He should cook his own meals, he's no one special.
How can anyone excomunicate the mafia? thats stupid
Pope Francis probably snuck out because he wants to freedom to the same things he did before he was pope. Like personally feeding the homeless. http://townhall.com/tipsheet/danieldoherty/2014/02/13/report-pope-francis-regularly-sneaks-out-of-the-vatican-at-night-to-shepherd-the-poor-n1794650
His motorcycle was sold at auction for $327,000. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/02/08/automobiles/pope-francis-harley-davidson-sells-for-327000-at-paris-auction.html?_r=0
As bishop of Rome, he gets to decide where the money goes. I'm sure you'd rather keep a bonus for yourself, but Jesus would probably disagree.
Everything else you said was just your opinion. I suggest you stop getting your religion from Earnest Angely.
