This is the problem with politicians, they pass ridiculous laws that turn police into the bad guys for enforcing them. Here is a solution to jaywalking… you jaywalk, you get hit, you pay for your injuries not the person who hit you. That would stop jaywalking and free up police time to go after the real criminals.
There are rapists, murders, robbers and drug dealers infiltrating our communities and the police are having to issue citations for jaywalking. The kid was wrong but it is the ridiculous law that created the problem in the first place.
This was one of the problems in Ferguson, MO where the city passed outrageous fines for jaywalking and other minor infractions. Then they enforced the laws which then created a powder keg of resentment as Ferguson was a relatively poor to moderate income community. The state of Missouri passed a new law that limits the amount of fines a city can collect as a percentage of their general revenue in direct response to the fleecing of taxpayers for minor infractions in an effort to fill budget shortfalls.
you hit part of the nail. the problem is that most people will not try to hit the person. so they get out of their car and try to talk to the jaywalker about how it is dangerous to the jaywalker if he continues his actions. the jaywalker pulls out a knife or gun and tells the driver to get lost in not so many words. the driver, who pays taxes, demands that cops enforce the law. now in this scenario, who is wrong. hint it would be the dumb ass jaywalker.

If the Blaze were not so eaten up with their Never Trump propaganda this story would reference the 2012 pentagon paper that was declassified and released under the FOIA to Judicial Watch that said the Obama administrations support of the Syrian rebels risks the rise of the Salafists and the declaration of a caliphate. Oops then what happened? Obama kept his policy, ISIS was created, they occupied territory between Iraq and Syria and they declared a caliphate. Hell I believe Glenn even did one of his chalk board demonstrations on this
By all accounts the Obama administrations policies of supporting, funding and arming the Syrian “rebels” aka Al Qaeda in an effort to overthrow Assad created ISIS, the even more barbaric offshoot of Al Qaeda.
The pentagon warned him and he didn’t listen. Therefore Obama owns ISIS as he created the conditions for them to rise to power and spread their death and destruction across the region and world!
Also reference all the republicans and people like Mitt Romney going around saying we needed to do more to get Assad out of Syria.....And the republican and conservative voters supported it!!!
So yeah, Obama did bad. And the republicans/conservatives/Romney are on record as wanting to do worse.
But the ultimate hypocrisy belongs to Donald Trump....Trump blames Obama for leaving Iraq - but Trump was a big supporter of leaving Iraq at the time.
Trump also founded ISIS
The organization that became ISIS, Jamāʻat al-Tawḥīd wa-al-Jihād, was founded in 1999 while Obama was a junior state senator, genius.

That is great. Now we know exactly who the RINOs are. Their refusal to support Trump who is the duly elected republican candidate means that they are supporting the lying criminal communist/socialist Hillary Clinton.
Yes RINO's are closet Communists. Those in politics are wealthy enough to "Go either way". The poor people must vote their convictions. A serious need for a CONSERVATIVE PARTY is in order is obvious in view of the choice now available to Americans. Both Clinton and Saunders are graced by the loyal Marxists and should be fed to the sharks
 August 12, 2016 at 12:32pm
Have no need to get to know the spoiler. He will do nothing but get Hillary elected!
Funny how the Blaze does not show Cruz way down in the Texas polls among republican likely voters for his failure to honor his word.
The person who will have the biggest impact in getting Hillary elected president will be Donald Trump.
 August 11, 2016 at 8:41pm
Who cares about his mouth? All I care about is keeping the lying criminal POS (Progressive Offensive Socialist) out of office.
Hillary will screw this country so bad your heal will explode! The Supreme Court will be lost forever. How is that for your constitution loving reality?
Guess you didn’t like it when Trump said “Hillary Clinton I think is a terrific woman, I am biased because I have known her for years. I live in New York. She lives in New York. I really like her and her husband both a lot. I think she really works hard. And I think, again, she’s given an agenda, it is not all of her, but I think she really works hard and I think she does a good job. I like her.
 August 11, 2016 at 8:36pm
Who freaking cares what she thinks. She is irrelevant. Trump was not calling for any harm to Hillary. The only people who believe this nonsense are the Never Trump crowd and the progressive liberal democrats who have a strategy to go after Trump on every word he says. They are trying to screw the polls by saying he is violent just like they call Trump supporters violent. When in fact it is the Hillary and Bernie crowd that has caused riots, burned yard signs, burned flags, flown foreign flags, murdered, shot and assaulted Trump supporters. SO GET OFF THE PROGRESSIVE BAND WAGON! WHERE IS/WAS HER ADMONISHMENT OF THE TRUE PUSHERS OF VIOLENCE? I NEVER HEARD HER “WORDS HAVE MEANING” B.S. WHEN THE PROGRESSIVES WERE ASSAULTING AND SCREAMING OBSCENITIES AT TRUMP SUPPORTERS!
You Never Trumpsters are going to be the death of this country. There are two choices. PERIOD! The lying criminal Hillary or the loudmouth Trump. Trump may not fit your conservative constitution waiving mold but he is by far better than the socialist I’m going to get you your”fair share” lying constitution shredding Hillary Clinton. Add to that, this country will get Slick Willie back in the White House as well.
So get your pouty sore loser heads out of your back end because if Hillary is office this country is DONE !

No it is not the political world in a tizzy, it is the liberal leftist anti gun crowd and the NeverTrump people who have their panties in a wad.
 August 8, 2016 at 2:51pm
I’m really tired of the Never Trump crowd. This nonsense will certainly get the lying criminal Hillary Clinton elected. Which in turn will get liberal communist judges appointed to the Supreme Court. Then what will become of the constitution and rule if law in this country?
Don't let them affect your mood Trilo. Alot are turning around. I wasn't a Trump supporter at all through the primaries, but have come around and am 100% now. I've actually come to be quite amused by the man. Do I agree with him on everything, nope, that's NEVER going to happen with any honest candidate. But will I vote for him in November, you bet your hiney. And most here have enough sense to do the same. I got that kind of faith.

so much for Judicial Watch and their credibility… Snowden HAS NOT BEEN CONVICTED of treason or any other crime.
BTW I think he is a hero for warning the American sheeple of our criminal lying useless government! Same for Wikileaks. Without them the criminals, liars and globalists in DC would have absolute cover to destroy this country faster then they already are.

Once again another one sided hit piece on Trump from the new Hillary Clinton media network. If you watched the RNC there were many people who spoke about the charity Trump has given. I have read stories about him flying soldiers back home, helping his employees with medical bills, his son has a charity that he runs. Where in the hell is Obama and Biden on the charity front? I’m sure…. ABSENT! They believe GOVERNMENT IS CHARITY!
If a man’s character can be determined by the character and actions of his children the Trump children sure are a good indication. You have never heard a word about any scandal they have been involved in. Being famous their lives are out their for the MSM and tabloids to spew anything that they do.
I watched some of Biden’s speech. Talk about an angry old white man! I had to turn it off.

“America Is Already Great’: Obama Chastises Trump, Makes the Case for Clinton in Rousing DNC Speech”
The story headlines on the Blaze are starting to sound like a cheering squad for Hillary! Rousing speech? The bias is certainly starting to show through.
I was thinking the same thing yesterday....what's the deal?
 July 27, 2016 at 9:12pm
Leon Panetta? The Blaze is spewing Hillary’s sidekick? The very administration that screwed up the middle east more than George Bush?
 July 21, 2016 at 12:44pm
Good they should be fearful. A a US taxpayer I’m tired of funding their security on borrowed money. At $21 trillion in debt either pay up and live up to your obligations or fend for yourself. Our military does not work for free.
And Trump made fun of his wife's looks and claimed Cruz's dad was "a friend of the Castro's" and might have been involved in the JFK assassination.
There is no oath that can withstand the ugliness, prejudice and stupidity of those statements.
And to correct you, as you're totally off-base, there was never an oath to "endorse".
The oath was to "support". Cruz is lending his support and standing by the Republican Party's choice. He never promised an endorsement.
If you're going to spout hyperbole, at least be factually accurate.
 July 21, 2016 at 8:34am
Ted Cruz took an OATH! He went back on his word. He took the oath and took the benefits of the oath, ie RNC campaign data. This notion that he stood up for “principles” is a crock of crap. He failed a core principle of going back on his word!
The never Trump crowd is going to get the criminal Hillary elected then your constitutional freedom will be GONE!!! Think about that!
You mean like freedom of the press which Trump said he wanted to infringe on so they couldn't "speak unfairly"? That kind of thing?
Is a choice between two liberals who want to repeal constitutional freedom really a choice, at all?
I think the more pressing concern here is how a progressive like Trump fooled so many people. It's astonishing and sad that so many people can be took like that. Trump is the consummate con man but still it speaks volumes about the gullibility of the people that voted for Trump.
Trump refused to honor the pledge, but I'm sure he will swear he never said this:
Even if Trump had never refused the pledge, his questioning Cruz's citizenship, calling Cruz "Lyin Ted", making demeaning comments about Cruz's wife and insinuating that Cruz's father was part of a plot to assassinate Kennedy is more than enough to say Trump voided the pledge.
Trump was never likely to win against the Hildabeast, and barring a miracle he won't. You Trumpets, Trumpsters and Branch Trumpidians just wouldn't recognize that reality if it bit you in the posterior. ANY of the others who were running in the Republican Primaries would be at least 10 to 15 points ahead of the Hildabeast by now (even Mittens Romney would have been far ahead).
Oh noes, I sceered! Maybe Trump should have courted conservatives instead of kicking us out of the party? Good luck to you guys in your Democrat vs. Democrat battle this November.
July 21, 2016 at 8:29am
What he would or wouldn’t do is not the point it is all speculation! What Ted Cruz did is fact and in the here and now. He is not a Man of his word.
 July 19, 2016 at 10:48pm
The police should have just stood back and let them all have at each other. Natural selection is great.
