    You see, this is all a consequence of the drug war. Tell me, you great lovers of liberty and individual sovereignty here at the Blaze, will you call to end the “War on Drugs” to end these kinds of obscenties? Lol…

    A few facts for those of you who actually care about evidence and reason (maybe 1 of you here).

    1. 50% of all criminal justice spending in the U.S. goes to drug law enforcement. Yet almost half of murders and many other crimes go unsolved. 87% of wiretap orders in 2012 were for drug cases. Is this what you want our govt spending it’s energy on?

    2. Portugal has gone for full legalization and they’ve seen teen drug use drop and addiction rates drop. This is because there is no black market for kids to access anymore and real addicts are getting psychological/medical help. Btw, 75% or more of addicts are people who are “self-medicating” due to psychological and emotional problems.

    Do facts mean anything to people here? Even more to the point, we are supposed to be free people and just like being a drunk, if people want to get high, why is it the business of the state? But hey, in the Christian Nation you people want to build, a small think like actual liberty isn’t really the point, is it?

    Ah yes, the blithe ignorance of the Christian-Zionist in all it’s idiocy. A few facts for you great moral people who support Zionism and it’s ongoing crime against humanity, Israel:

    1. Jews didn’t live in large numbers in Palestine for almost 2000 years. When the political Zionist project began in 1882, the Jews were about 3-4% of the population and had been thus for over a thousand years. There about 25K Jews about 75k Christians and 400k plus Arab Muslims living their.

    2. The U.N. Partition in agreement forbade the Zionists from removing any Arab Muslims living in areas given to the Zionists, yet in 1948 they cleansed 750 Arab Muslims from 450 towns, villages and cities in Palestine, and also took 20% more territory than the generous grant the Zionists got from the U.N. while only holding 10% of the land before, the partition gave them 56% and then they took the next 20%. In ’49, the U.S. sided with the Palestinians in demanding the “right of return” for the Arab Muslims who’d been cleansed but Israel not only never complied – it looted all the homes and gave them to Zionists.

    3. Today, in the West Bank, which is explicitly Palestinian territory and by no legal standard part of Israel or land Zionists have any legal claim to, Israel has built “settlements” for 300,000 Jews, in many cases bulldozing Palestinian homes building right on top of them. This is considered and international crime by every single nation.

    Beck claims to be moral. Wake up. This i

    Wait a second, isn’t what she said an incitement to riot? Isn’t that against the law? She’s publicly encouraging a group of people to take illegal action – how can that be legal for a sworn city official, no less the mayor who is the chief law enforcement officer of the city? What is this world coming to?

    One of the issues here is the recruiting policies for police. They have lowered the standards dramatically over the years and many people join the force because it’s a steady job, but being a cop is a lot more than that. These fat pieces of garbage get scared too easily, and overreact You see it with cops shooting dogs or using SWAT for non-violent drug arrests and the over use of force. If this cop was a bit “tough” and not such a fat wimp, he would not have been so easily intimidated.

    So sad the jury convicted. With the film this is an open and shut case of overreaction by the cops.

    I guess you don’t live int the U.S. While homeschooling is an option for some parents it may be a very bad option for a special needs kid (Adma Lanza come to mind?)? And contrary to your statement, the govt actually has a legal responsibility to provide a suitable education environment for special needs kids. You may not like those laws, but you don’t just to preten they don’t exist…

    The real problem here is “mainstreaming” – yet another leftie delusion. While it goes without saying that the kids who bully him should be punished, and the parents of the bullies are lowlifes, this kid clearly doesn’t have the socail skills to be in a school with other normal kids, sorry. He should be in a special school, but sadly we have bought into this idiotic way of dealing with special needs children. Besides being bad for the kids, it’s also very expensive usually. Sigh…

    Giggling at Beck’s naivete here. This is very straightforward and standard drug law enforcement. This kind of abuse happens in the drug war every day. Fyi, if the found some drugs, they could take his car and all the money he had on him – before any trial, as an act of civil forfeiture. Fyi, that doesn’t happen to you if you are a bankrobber or child molester – only drugs. But hey, keep supporting the drug war BeckBots.

    Last. 50% of all criminal justice spending in our country goes to drug law enforcement – with no observable reduction in use. 87% of all wiretap orders were for drug cases. Most conservatives have no idea how out of control and corrupting the war on drugs is. I applaud Beck for doing this story, but if he really cares, he’d go to the root of the story and see how badly cops abuse people’s civil rights all the time in the “War on Drugs”.

    Question for Tea Partiers: Do you want to only appeal to Christian fundamentalists? If you think anyone who isn’t one will vote for Barton, you are nuts. I read up on Barton when Beck started talking about him and his ideas a few years back. I was horrified to find out how often he’s been shown to be blatantly dishonest about the “history” he’s peddling.

    Consider that his last book on Jefferson was pulled after publishing (by a conservative publisher who has never been afraid of political controversy) because 5 major Christian historians wrote an open letter begging them too, showing how incredibly dishonest the entire book is. I have no problem with religious people – but I have a huge problem with people who revise history to support their religion.

    For those of you who are Dominionists, don’t beother responding – you are enemies of liberty. But there must be other people here who value truth and govt being neutral about religion. Right? Is there one person here who doesn’t want a proved liar for senator? Is there one who cares about the truth? Or do you just care about winning for “your side”? Consider if the latter is so, you are no better than Obama and his minions.

    Uhh, anyone who’s ever been married or had a girlfriend sleep over knows this – how is this a newstory? Also, the chick is a little chubby to be a swimsuit model. She should skip a meal or two, and maybe try out some Slimfast combined with a hearty resistance and cardio program. Human beings love beauty – and their is no fair to it. We like fit people. We like women with certain curves and men with certain muscles. That’s all that’s going on here.

    Without seeing the photographs and knowing what happened before and during, it’s very hard to know what to make of this. First things first, it’s not “rape”. It’s sexual assault. I bring this up not to apologize for it, but because the radical feminists have been trying to broaden the term rape to include many things besides for sexual intercourse. In their world, merely being drunk and having sex (for the women only) is rape as drunk woman can’t give consent in their eyes so that’rape too.

    I have no idea how this girl ended up in this situation. There are circumstances where this might not be even non-consensual. Also, even a few still pix will not necessarily tell the whole or true story. Let there be an investigation. It seems to me her problem is that she’s embarrassed. If the investigation shows she was assaulted, so be it. But in the real world, getting fall down drunk at a college party is always a bad idea.

    So, this is depraved, but your calling for the entire country to be “wiped out” is not? Are you out of your frikkin’ mind? I think so.

  • September 1, 2013 at 6:07pm

    (cont’d) I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love the man’s brio, but really, do you think it’s appropriate for a chief of police of some town to create a video like this? Hell, I’d get fired from my job if I did this – and I just sell software. Defending this guy is nutz. He has a right to do this as a private citizen sure and now he has all the time in the world to do so.

  • September 1, 2013 at 6:03pm

    Wow. I haven’t come here in a while, and when I saw this “news” item, I had to see what the comments would be like. So many excuses for what is inexcusable. What if he had been cursing out Tea Partiers, calling them Tea Baggers and bigots etc? It’s not okay for a police chief to behave this way. “*******” is a very insulting term, and I can’t understand when right wingers using it act like it’s not really offensive. It is and this guys deserves to be fired for doing so. End of story.

    But here? In BeckLand? Nah, as long as you are on “the right side”, anything goes.

    One of things that doesn’t get talked about is the decline of the quality of police officers since it was reduced to being viewed as just another civil service job with a good benefits. The warrior culture has been degraded significantly and they hire dumber, weaker people who can’t handle conflict well. Overreaction it common. Incompetence like this is rife. But hey, at least the PDs are all ‘diverse’ now… Lower standards and you get lower quality – shocker…

    No, actually not a Ron Paul fan at all.

    If you NeoCon-Christian Nationalists actually cared about gun violence, you’d look at it’s root causes. While the stats you quote are true and I don’t support aggressive gun control, the real truth is that we have a serious problem with drug related gang violence. It’s also true that it’s not just in the big urban areas anymoe, but is now common in what were considered small cities in the past. ON a smaller scale it’s also true in the drug infested areas of many suburban/semi-rural communities.

    What is the common denominator? Our drug laws. We spend 50% of all criminal justice dollars on drug enforcement.

    Lock this punk up for the duration as an example. Too many people watch too much TV and don’t have real experience with violence. Unfortunately, I grew up in a place where fighting was common place. As a result, I always worry about the way the average fistfight is portrayed on TV. A single punch someone’s head can kill them or injure them very seriously. But you only know that if you’ve been punched in the head a few times. To watch TV, you’d think that one can take say 5 hard blows to the face and not be laying on the ground screaming and bleeding. Faces are also very hard and you can really hurt your hand punching someone in the face.

    Uh oh, you are trying to talk sense here, I don’t think it’s going to go well. In fact “sex offender” databases are horrendous violations of the rights of some of the offenders. Not only does a statutory rape between and 18 yr old and a 16 yr old count, but there are lots of other offenses that don’t belong there. More than a few people have had situations where they were publicly urinating – surely an offense, but it’s a summons-type offense – have been locked up for public lewdness. It’s also been used in some jurisdictions against those soliciting prostitutes. Again, it’s an offense. but no indicator that the person is a sexual predator. As well, sexual assault cases have between 20-40% false report rates. Just look at the “Innocence Project” – most common overturned conviction? Rape.

    Saddest part? The cops know the difference. There are people who are serial sexual predators – whether of children or others – and they should be watched. But the cops should be watching them. We should put them under special probationary conditions and supervise the daylights out of them. Sure, neighbors should know about these very small numbers of people. But only those who have been found to be a danger for recidivism for violent sexual attacks. Nothing more. And of course people should axiomatically be convicted of a felony so the existing law covers them. Sigh…

    Let get this straight. According to some professional complaint huckster, I have to ask the permission of a particular group to use a picture of people in that group in an advert now? How does this work? The people in the pic are dead – I’m sure the correct copyright exists or the advertiser would not have posted it. Are we supposed to ask some Native American activist? Really?

    Her faux complaint that it is reductionist is also absurd. The billboard in no way implies that giving up their weapons was the whole story, not by a long shot. Sigh, every day I just see so much nonsense, it’s hard to even process anymore.
