The framers of the constitution had no concept of the level of lawlessness that would occur in the streets of every major city at night. Had they, they likely would have been far more liberal is granting local constables power to keep the peace in what could only be possibly conceptualized by them at the time as a “town-wide tavern brawl”! I assure you in 1791, the local cops beat the crap out of anyone with night sticks who didn’t do what was told of them in simulular situations. The only real difference today is that the sheeple have been dis-educated and politicized by the progressive-statist-marxist machine in America.
Sit back, crack a cold one, and watch it burn down in slow motion!
I used to live in SD, but like the Bowery, I'll never go there anymore.

Law Enforcement Failure? Maybe. The cop should have told the guy with the camera to move back (and might very well have done just that… which of course would have been edited out of that footage!). Was the camera person a participant in the public disturbance? Likely so.
The sheeple of society are always shocked by seeing violence being used; whether it is by criminals or by police toward criminals, non-cooperative suspects or bystanders. I support the thin blue line of law enforcement and their use of force on a regular basis against those that haunt and prowl the streets at night… far better to selectively use a little pepper spray, Taser and baton here and there to keep the wolves at bay than having to do it ourselves… there would be gunfire in the air on an hourly basis in the cities if the cops stopped enforcing laws; and a lot of that gunfire would be having to come from the rifle barrels of law abiding citizen/soldiers such as myself… no thanks… did that in Iraq… not an environment I would want to live in. Keep up the good work LEOs! Next time, issue commands while you are using force so the sheeple watching at home are clued in as to your justification.

This does nothing but scare soccer moms, sheeple and embolden progressive-statists to pass even more gun laws… here in CA, we have lost our open carry rights to both handguns and long guns in the last two years due to guys like this. Well meaning? Perhaps. Dumb Idea… Definitively!

Good thing you can’t get a CCW Permit in that County… those poor misunderstood car-jackers might have gotten shot by that real-estate agent!

Actually, we need the guy who got the hits, not the dumb patsy, but point taken, even if in poor taste, and probably a federal violation of some sort… expect a knock on your door in 3…2…1… ;-)

The only votes that count in America today are the ones with your feet and your ballot, NOT your keyboard!
Get out to a protest and be angry in front of the cameras! If 100,000 right minded patriots sent emails to their congresspersons today… ho hum… if they posted on twitter and facebook today… ho hum… if they got off their butts and went down to their local federal building for two hours with a sign that said IMPEACH NOW!, then those 100k people could not be ignored by the liberally-biased news media!
Get off your arses, or find yourself on your backsides!

Colorado… Happist State standing out there in the middle.
I'm in Colorado... I don't get it.
I would assume the friendlier states would be the happiest. New Hampshire people seemed friendlier than Colorado. But then again I moved from a small town where "everybody knows your name" and kids ran around unsupervised for hours and never get hurt by criminals...to a big city where homeless are everywhere, and the workplaces are more about tearing your co-workers down instead of succeeding on one's own merit, and kids can't play outside and feel safe.

Known repeat offender, in the commission of a crime, refuses to do what the cop tells him to do, then fights with the cop. To bad, so sad. Don’t resist arrest or this is what can happen to you.
This country shouldn't even have police. Police unlike a Sheriff are basically private armies of the mayor ( a European thing) and can do what they want because they don't have to worry about public opinion and can't even be sued . A Sheriff can be voted out of office. The best way this stuff could be stopped is have the chief of police be a political job and be voted in by the citizens.
He didn't fight with the cop. If he would've fought, he could have tossed two of them at the same time. That's why the executioner snuck up from behind.
Remember that when a perceived injustice by an officer is perpetrated on you. We all know "resistance" in the eye of the officer and he/she "feels threatened" compliance WILL be achieved, to your physical and mental detriment.
But I'm sure that will NEVER happen to you and it does, it'll all be a misunderstanding right?
Anything can happen to anyone at any time, after all we're all human right? Everyone has bad days even Officer Friendly.

Hey, at least he threw away his cardboard trash before he fired his rockets toward innocent civilians! The Islamic Terrorists must have a strong recycling campaign! #ISupportIsrael

Good work OBAMA!
You’re failure in IRAQ has insured a dirty bomb attack against a western nation!
So how many Americans have to die before we actually do something about the POS, we should start impeachment immediately because seriously lives are on the line while Obama plays golf.
 July 9, 2014 at 10:57am
WORST PRESIDENT EVER!
TYRANT Obama must be stopped, and he must be stopped now!
Impeach him NOW, hang him later!
 July 8, 2014 at 8:01pm
Good work brother! We all know it’s not the fault of the children, and honestly, how could you really blame the parents for wanting a substantially better life for their children, since Obama has clearly signaled that they can get it!
If I could easily make $500,000 a year living and working Canada, and though illegal, the PM of Canada was such a traitor to his Countries sovereignty that he would actually help me stay their once I got jumped his border, I would be and IDIOT to not try and get there!
Who would have guessed that there would be a legal gun owner with a Texas CCW Permit, among all those Katrina refugees. I’m sure he was legally defending himself, and just forgot to report the crime in all the confusion. He should be reporting it shortly.

The first person “arrested” was a peaceful guy with a flag, who chose not to move to the “1st Amendment Area” behind the Police Tape. When he went over to ask others to join him to legally express their 1st Amd. Rights, he was detained, and then finally arrested, for some b.s. “Safety Violation”… pretty much what our government did with the exclusion order of the Japanese Americans in 1942, and to a lessor extent, what Germany first did with the Jews in Warsaw.
Americans cross the police tape, and we get arrested. Foreign Nationals enter our country illegally, and they get $250 a day worth of care (that is $150,000/year per person!), free private chartered jets and buses, armed federal protection, free medical care, then released to our community where they will not show up to their federal immigration hearing and never be prosecuted or deported…, but will be enrolling their kids in your kids schools for this fall semester (demanding spanish-only instruction!), and registering those kids with your Counties welfare office, where they will be put on MediCal, Food Stamps, AFDC$, and a half a dozen other welfare programs that YOU and your neighbors are paying for via your outrageous taxes, in this horrific economy!!!
If you are not yet outraged, and willing to get off your arse and protest in person over this Federal Government destruction of Republic and State Sovereignty, then you are PART OF THE PROBLEM! Don’t be part of the problem, be part of the solution:
Fully agree. I am not buying anything from that State till the treason is stopped.
AWESOME insight and post...... I will be part of the solution......
 July 5, 2014 at 10:14am
I have the solution: Get arrested for a crime, lose all your welfare benefits for three months, no apeal! Get convicted of a crime, loser them for 1 year!
It would cut crime in America in half over night. Then the biggest problem would be to try and cut police budgets! (Good luck with that!)

As a man of color, I do not find what he said to be racist in any way. What he said just sounds like the facts. Kind of like how Chris Rock pointed out that same issue regarding Donald Sterling at the BET awards last week:
Chris Rock: ‘What exactly did Donald Sterling Say? “I don’t want my woman around black basketball players.”…’ Me neither!!! Are you kidding me?!? Who the hell wants their woman around black basketball players?!?!
If this country hadn't gone all PC again with the curse of having Twitter around, he'd be good. How things are now, celebrities should just stay the hell away from Twitter. Nothing good comes from Twitter.

Can someone please get rid of Rubin “LaRaza” Navarette?
