Why take a minor jab? Hell the idiot mayor said the city gave the thugs and rioters a place to destroy. I’m Sure they did not have permission to come into her neighborhood and “destroy”. This is the systemic problem with republicans; NONE of them have a set of balls to say what they mean or speak the truth. Democrats will say whatever lies it takes to discredit anyone. They would call the pope the devil if it made their point. All the while the republicans dance around and try to seem moderate.
This idiot of a mayor GAVE PERMISSION for lawlessness and criminal behavior. Now the gangs and thugs are ruling the scene. When you let chaos ensue, it is hard to put it back.

Am I supposed to feel bad for the photographer? 99% of the time the media is a bleeding heart liberal pushing the social justice mantra. The media has helped foment this anarchy; from Trayvon Martin to Michael Brown. Now look at the freaking mess. Let them suffer the consequences of the cr@p they helped foment. Maybe they should call their buddy, Obama to save the day.
Social justice is only justice when the thugs are thumping on the police or innocent white bystanders and companies. It is a different story when they go after their most avid supporters, aka the media.
Sad when one can believe the words from Iran than your own government.
The think tank, Project for a New American Century, called for “regime change” in Iraq long before Bush got into office. Treasury secretary Paul O’Neill, claimed that Bush had plans to rid Iraq of Saddam Hussein BEFORE 9/11.
In 2007 Wesley Clark stated that he was told after 9/11 that the USA had plans to destroy 7 countries in 5 years. These countries included: Iraq, Syria,Libya, Lebanon, Somalia, Sudan and Iran. So far we have 3 of the 7.
In 1998 Bill Kristol a member of PNAC called for regime change in Iraq.
PNAC policy stated: ” the need for substantial American force presence in the Gulf transcends the issue of the regime of Saddam Hussein.”
PNAC also called for US global hegemony through military force and justified pre-emptive war. TEN members of PNAC were in the Bush administration.
To what extent the US knew about the 9/11 attack before it happened at least one thing is certain; the USA had plans ousting Saddam BEFORE 9/11, therefore creating chaos. The 28 pages of redacted evidence about Saudi Arabia is another red flag.

So what notes would you need to take during the national anthem? What a lame excuse. Quite frankly I’m rather surprised that the communist in chief and all of his media minions even thought to play the national anthem.

You gave looters and criminals “space to destroy”? What a freaking idiot!!!!!
Trilo, that's a pretty racist thing for her to say.......brings up images of the zoo. Well......maybe thats the route to take... Hang up some tire swings and clubs. Maybe a bunch of beach balls....
She also gave the victims a big fat case for a civil lawsuit...
Trill! She is a looting criminal herself!!!! Elected again after steeling from the taxpayers of Baltimore...
In LA with Rodney King trial and cops getting off and a billion dollars worth of damage in LA, those frustrated and angry people would not have done it if there was some justice for the cops. If people get agitated by the system, if these people had a police crack down instead of a moment to vent, there is no doubt in my mind that it would have excalated and made things worse. Am I the only one in this thread who gets this concept?
Hot head responses are harmless, but they reveal a mindset that tolerance and strategy is secondary to getting even. getting even is only going to escalate things. Play it smart. The mayor may be making a very smart calculated choice to REDUCE overall damage by placating a bit. Something to think about.
So, sounds to me like the police chief just gave the green light to all of those who lost property during this riot to sue the city for damages. If they had to go through their own insurance companies, I can only imagine the rate hikes coming for the victims next year.
How about giving the citizens that own the property space to destroy the rioters????

Twitter is only against Americans who are religious and who value the 2nd amendment.
 April 26, 2015 at 7:27pm
Where is the anti-gun brigade? Oh that’s right, they only want to disarm Americans.
Why is this even shocking coming from a culture of death?

So the CIA and NSA read the presidential emails of Germany,France, Russia, etc. etc. then we cry foul when we get the same thrown right back in our arrogant face. America has reached the outer limits of our sanctimonious arrogance. No wonder the world has no respect for us.
With the lying, thievery, criminal covert wars and staring revolutions, I’m sure this is just another example of our government via the CIA or NSA trying to start another war, this time a cyberwar. Just because Germany, France and the UK are lap dogs for the USA doesn’t mean Putin will just roll over.
Our government will tell the sheeple anything as they are gullible enough to believe them. The majority of the human species has evolved into mindless minions looking for their next free handout.
America has officially joined the dust heap of once great nations.

Cronyn you are a POS RHINO! You can spew your rhetoric and lies to the sheeple. You CANNOT fool those of us who actually read the constitution and know how this corrupt government works. Had you NOT voted for cloture, debate would have continued indefinitely. You cannot vote for cloture then vote against the issue and say you were against that issue. You knew damn well she would be confirmed if cloture passed. Harry Reid still controls the senate. McConnell you are a traitor to what used to be known as the Republican Party. Cronyn you are a sell out as well.
To all of you sheeple who keep voting “D” or “R” had better start paying attention to WHO you are voting for!
I agree .. these parents ..unless destitute .. are paying for the child's education at this Catholic school. My son attended a Catholic school in Michigan and I can't imagine them throwing a sick child out ..the other parents never would have stood for it.
Someone skipped the Chain of Command and sent an Email directly to God.
How is a school supposed to educate someone that doesn't go to school? The parents are short-changing their kid. She should be in an online school with a teacher running web classes all day. The poor catholic school, which can barely afford to pay their teachers, probably dosen't have those kinds of resources.

Of course the republicans and corporations are for the treaty. Of course it is a secret. Just like Obamacare you have to pass it to get to know what is in it. The republicans are traitors to the American working man/woman. All for the profit of international corporations that have NO allegiance to this country. No ethics as everything is for the almighty dollar.
NAFTA has been such a great thing for the working people if this country, I can’t wait to see what destruction this brings the world
I'm afraid you are right.
These kind of stories lay bare the absolute insane ignorance of many "conservatives". The idea that "free trade" with 3rd world nations in anyway HELPS America and its workers shows how corrupt the "conservative movement" is!
We as a nation are lost, both sides of the political isle are absolute frauds who sell out the middle class every chance they get. Most people who comment here banker-shills and don't even know it, quite pathetic.
So, I'll finish with analysis that fits most peoples intellectual level here; even though they're salivating to crush the middle class with this psychotic "trade" deal.......Republican good, Democrat bad.

I can really care less if he is a republican or democrat. To me both parties are one and the same. I’m just sorry he has had to live such a mixed up emotional life. I hope that he can find peace. His emotional turmoil certainly shows in the values his children exhibit. The Kardashians are a prime example of what is totally wrong with this country. Their fame has been derived from nothing more than their beauty and bad behaviors.

One day you too will be considered an “enemy combatant” because of your views and associations. When people no longer value the constitution there is no law, only tyranny
YOU are part of THE PROBLEM with the downfall of this country. Moral relativism and blind diversity has been the spiral of death and you cheer it on.
I’m with you judge. We now live in a lawless tyranny. There is absolutely no reason our court system could not have tried these individuals in their absence. Then issued the appropriate sentence. Unfortunately the sheeple cheer the lawlessness and flagrant violations of the constitution on a daily basis. Remember the REPUBLICANS and DEMOCRATS said the WORLD IS THE BATTLEFIELD thanks to the NDAA. Remember that RUBIO VOTED for the extension of the NDAA and the PATRIOT act!
Also remember that “terrorists” and “extremists” are one and the same. Unfortunately our government lumps, veterans, pro choice supporters, pro constitution supporters, libertarians,, just to name a few, as “extremists” aka terrorists. Hell even now they are trying to label people who try to eat well and take care of their bodies as people with a mental disorder. Remember … People with “mental disorders” are dangerous and so they can not posses weapons.
Boy those KC Royals sure like to fight but to hell with the country, our rights and our freedoms. Who has time to pay attention to tyranny when baseball is on the TV. Just show them the latest shuffle on the baseball field, just like the Romans putting on the circuses for the masses. The sheeple are happily being led to slaughter. Their time to wake up from their slumber has just about expired.
FOR 6+YRS ALL RETUNING-VETS ARE ON THE O'[D]TERROR WATCH LIST!!

What a bunch of spoiled and inconsiderate punks. I do find it interesting that the police did not press charges and the university is. Why are they punishing the entire fraternity for the actions of a few. I am rather certain the entire fraternity house did not attend spring break. I am tired of everyone getting punished for the actions of a few.
These kids have some soul searching to do and some community service as well. “Reaching out” is the least they need to do.
A word of advice to the rest of the world: do not go to panama beach or any other college spring break destination. Until these communities get a handle on the lawlessness and the utter immoral behaviors that seem to be condoned because of the “economic” impact of Spring break I say stay away for good. When their pocket books hurt the other 50 weeks out of the year then they just might listen and clean up the filth.
Same theory the Marine Corps uses; "You ARE your Brother's keeper".
All are responsible for one and one is responsible for all. Because if one screws-up, all could die.
Most of them likely support the communist direction we are heading, so let them be the collective.
F all of them.

According to FBI statistics, violent crime is decreasing. Property crime is increasing. There are more innocent and unarmed people killed by police, especially during SWAT raids, then cops who are killed by criminals. SWAT raids have drastically increased to serve warrants for non-violent drug offenses. These officers burst into homes, in the dead of night, armed to the teeth. They shoot people’s dogs, at times they enter the wrong house with deadly consequences. All for what? Some low level drug dealer or because someone is smoking weed. It has happened here in my town.
Police training has been supplanted by military training and weapons. The military has been trained to kill the “enemy”. Citizens are now becoming that enemy.
Sorry but the incidents described in this article and the countless others across the country is not an illusion of increased police brutality, because there has been an increase.
There were an estimated 80,000 SWAT "raids" in 2014 alone. Most of them over fricking nothing. And people got hurt, maimed or killed-again, for practically nothing. I once saw a SWAT goon get his ass nearly blown off by a flash bang grenade that went off in his pocket or pouch. It blew the crap out of him. He was in serious pain. I said "good", now you know what that little babies face felt like.
LEOs have done this to themselves.
The community outreach is slim, their goodwill has been replaced with suspicion and skepticism. Their collective behavior is one of a group who believe they are above the law.
SWAT raids are a self-justification but they haven't started going badly for the agencies so why bother cutting back?

He makes me want to puke. Rubio is just another progressive RHINO. He was part of the gang of 8 that gave us Amnesty. He supports government surveillance without a warrant. He supports the Dream Act. He supports endless wars.
I guess if the elites can not have Jeb, Rubio is the next best thing.
Let me tell the power brokers who troll the internet…. If Rubio, Bush, Christie or any other Rhino is the republican candidate I will vote for Hillary. I would rather vote for the devil that tells me what evil they will do rather than the devil who lies and plays charades.
I can certainly understand your sentiment, but hillary is the worst liar out there. Well, besides obuma…
I voted for Rubio because I'm a Florida voter, but I don’t want him for president. Same with Bush.
I like Ted Cruz so far. I like Scott Walker, too, but not as much.

Why do we keep hearing about Mitt Romney and what he thinks? I could care less! He is a progressive elite just like Clinton. Go away!
According to Glenn, Mitt isnt an elitist. In fact, he claimed that Mitt is such a simple, humble guy, that he and his family ate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for one of their post-debate meals... Yeah F***ing right...
 April 23, 2015 at 11:21am
The sheeple will not care. The democrats would vote for a dead dog if there was a “D” after their name on the ballot. Same goes for the republican sheeple. You can print whatever you want about Hillary or Jeb. You can point out their cozy deals,their insider trading, their criminal acts, their flip flops, etc. and it will make NO difference. If they are the elities choice they will be on the ballot. The system is rigged. The sheeple are asleep.

Boo freakin hoo. I think at that time the American public were growing pretty damn tired of Bush and his endless wars. I’m sure McCain didn’t want him there because McCain is a bigger war monger than Bush and the sheeple could have made the connection.
They knew Dubya was "box office" poison
and at that point MOST Americans knew the war in Iraq was a mistake,
Obama and McCain always seem to be in agreement on where to send our troops next. So much for running as anti-Bush candidates.
not just him but his Father, George the first. The first one to start a war in Iraq. He aso introduced his "WE ARE ENTERING A NEW WORLD ORDER" mantra, four times in 10 minutes repeating that phrase on national USA TV 25 years ago.
This has been a long process unfolding with numerous traitor presidents parading as "family men"
