    Oo-freaking-rah!

    The sad truth 49 is that this sort of thing has been going on for damn near 100 years. It’s just in the past 20 that it’s started to get attention.

    Something has changed though. I was in high school when Columbine happened and I can still vividly remember the morning announcements that the law had changed and you could no longer bring your deer rifle with you to school in your truck.

    In my Dad’s years, kids regularly carried a .22 to and from school to be part of the small bore shooting team.

    IMHO, part of it is the media. Some people who are mentally unstable now see going on a shooting spree as a ticket to fame, combined with a disintegrating family structure where there is no real role model.

    Of course he’s stoking the fire.

    For months a huge part of the Democratic strategy has been to mobilize angry black voters to head to the polls and pull the lever for the person with D next to their name.

    Just look at the fliers going out that say not voting/voting Republican is voting FOR racist cops to gun down innocent blacks in the street or lynch mobs.

    It’s a play for votes, has been since this started; when the polls indicated the Dems were going to lose the Senate. Brown’s death just happened to occur during this time frame.

    It’s disgusting and opportunistic, but it is what it is.

    “A shocking photo later emerged of the ax embedded in the police car’s window, right in the area where the officer’s head would have been.”

    From the picture it would seem that the only way the cops head would have been hit by the ax in this incident was if the cop was sleeping on the job or passed out drunk in a cruiser.

    Two things:

    First, while I don’t condone insurance fraud it does seem like this family would have been much, much better off if the house had accidentally caught fire.

    Second, why does the story have a picture of a pipe packed with marijuana in it when the story is about meth?

    @supplant:

    “I don’t see what your missing regarding the concept of treason…”

    Ummm… other than the fact that you make a number of logical jumps with no explanation as to how or why you made them?

    “3) Syrian rebels are linked to al Qaeda…”

    First, some groups have pledged allegiance with AQ. That hardly amounts to all of them.

    Secondly, When you’re in a fight for your survival, you’ll take help from the best people offering it. Just like a drowning person doesn’t care who’s hand is offered to keep him from drowning. We should have either helped these people out or not done anything and let the chips fall where they may. Half-@ssing it the way Obama has done is unacceptable.

    Lastly, this story is from 2013, ergo it has absolutely no bearing on what was going on a year prior to it being written.

    “Selling missiles to Syrian rebels = Selling them to al Qaeda (or terrorists)”

    So every single person fighting against Assad for the last number of years was AQ/ a terrorist? Not only is that preposterous but it flies in the face of known facts about what was going on in 2012.

    Finally, explain how a resolution granting the President powers that Congress shouldn’t have ceded, has anything to do with this? The ONLY people that law authorizes the President to go after are people who were associated with 9/11, 11 years previous. It has no bearing on this discussion.

    You’re shoehorning this argument in an attempt to make it fit an accusation you’d like to believe is true.

    @NightCrew:

    That’s not correct.

    The court found that the Davidian’s started the gun battle and the ATF agents, who were attempting to serve lawful warrants, were defending themselves, that the use of tear gas was not negligent and that it’s use was “a discretionary function for which the government could not be sued”.

    The Davidians appealed to the 5th Circuit to have the judgement overturned. The 5th Circuit denied their appeal in 2004. Andrade v. Chojnacki, 338 F.3d 448 (5th Cir. 2003), cert. denied (2004).

    @Boomer:

    Your argument is all over the place here.

    First, there’s a huge distinction which you admit in your post: the cop is on video. There is no video clearly showing Frein in this case. So this is an apples to oranges comparison.

    Second, no one is arguing that the cops in this case shouldn’t have their civil rights upheld. Unfortunately this can’t happen because one’s dead. However, the quest to find justice for them does not validate the creation of a lynch mob to go after the accused.

    Third, the public pays the taxes that create the funds to pay a cops salary. That makes the public their employer.

    Forth, like it or not cops are public servants that asked for the job, they’re not drafted. The job comes with both authority but also responsibilities such as higher expectations than those placed on civilians. Those expectations include a higher moral standing, more patience and a higher degree of self control.

    Finally, being a cop is a job you can actually quit. If it’s too dangerous, you just can’t take the public scrutiny or you can no longer take being held to a higher standard then it’s time to hang up the badge. Let’s be honest here; a lot of people join the police force looking for adventure with a badge and a gun. Many of them are not very bright, some have anger issues etc etc. Either way, there’s a lot of people who are currently employed as cops that, like many people in other professions, should be finding another career.

    @TakeitHome:

    Reading isn’t your strong suit is it?

    At no time did I advocate for anything, my post was merely a series of observations about what happened in this case. Including the fact that the suspect in this case did not have SEAR or any military training.

    Also, putting large sections of your posts in all caps doesn’t make you smart, nor does it help you convey your point.

    Next time try reading what I posted rather than inventing something in your head and railing against it.

    “If you don’t vote this year, we will be interested to hear why not.”

    Well grandma’s got the cancer and we can’t get covered since the website [still] doesn’t work, and the welfare lines are pretty long this time of year what with it being the 7th year of the Great Recession… Also, I ain’t got no ID so those racist Republicans are keeping me away with their clock turned back to poll taxes and Jim Crow o’clock.

    I wonder what it’s like to have absolutely no shame, scruples or moral compass.

    @Testament:
    That’s cute, you go right ahead and cite that in court. Too bad no court since 1910 has considered it to be a “good case” but you go right ahead and cite it anyway. I’m sure the finding in that case will give you great comfort as the State “puts you to sleep”.

    We may not all agree on certain things, but let’s not call names here.

    Especially to Air Wing Marines.

    If you kill a cop WITH cause or BECAUSE of a direct threat of of bodily harm or death, you’ll still fry or die of police inflicted GSW’s.

    Courts have ruled repeatedly that you have NO legal right to resist cops, even if they are 100% wrong and acting 100% ILLEGALLY.

    Legally speaking; if the cops throw you in cuffs, toss you to the ground and shoot you in the back of the head, even if they straight up violated your rights in doing so… the only LEGAL thing that can be done is that your family/estate sue. If you resist, it’s still a lawful “resisting arrest” charge and under the law you got what was coming to you.

    The circumstances may make you POS in your POV, or they may not, but you’re still dead on the scene or facing the death penalty regardless.

    To reiterate: Courts have ruled that under NO circumstances may you resist the police. Patriot or POS, you die either way and it’s State sanctioned.

    Thanks Odyessy!

    @8years:

    I am in no way suggesting that he IS innocent. Merely saying that for a bunch of people who purport to love the Constitution, a lot of people here are advocating that he be put to death before he has a trial.

    Let’s look at what evidence the cops have put out publicly that supports their allegation that he’s the shooter.

    They found his parents car, with his social security card in it, as well as information on foreign embassies and spent casings matching the ones at the crime scene three days after the shooting.

    Within a few days they had a forensic match on the casings. Now, I won’t get into all the details on it, but Popular Science had a huge story on how crappy these matches are and how nothing other than DNA is actually scientific back in 2009. They actually tested this by sending casings and fingerprints to various “specialists” when Pop Sci already knew the answer. The “specialists” were wrong 90%+ of the time.

    I was on a jury in July where we had to let a probable child molester go because the State bungled the case so badly they couldn’t prove anything.

    Again, I’M NOT SAYING HE DIDN’T DO IT. What I’m saying is: Let’s see the evidence and let a jury weigh it. See if the State’s case holds water and all that. Just look at all the death row cases that were air tight until DNA proved the convicted guy didn’t do the crime.

    I’m 95% sure from what I’ve seen he should fry, but that’s what a TRIAL BY JURY is meant to determine. Let him have it.

    It’s Serbian. Not Russian. I had to look it up because not remember was driving me nuts.

    I completely agree and even referenced your point in my post. It’s really scary to think that this many LEO’s can be tied up for this long looking for one guy.

    People here know I’m pretty harsh on the police when they behave badly or in contradiction to their oath, but I don’t see that being an issue here at all. The issue is that with all the advantages the cops had in man power and technology it still took them 7 weeks to run this guy down when they knew where he was. (Personally, I had thought he had given them the slip.) He didn’t even have SEAR school or ANY military training from the reports I’ve seen. It was all self taught survival stuff.

    This is like Rambo come true, multiple police agencies totally tied down by one guy. If he had wanted to he could have easily killed/maimed a number of them with traps, ambushes or a combination. I don’t care how careful you are, eventually you’ll step on a trip wire or into a punji trap. Just think of how much WORSE this could have been.

    Then imagine it’s going on in a dozen difference places and how much trouble could occur in those areas while hundreds or thousands of LEO’s are out looking for some guy and stepping into his carefully planned traps.

    Technically speaking, until all the facts are presented in court we don’t even know IF this is the guy.
