It wasn’t until a reporter asked point-blank — the final question of the press conference — “What is the ethnicity of Jeffrey Williams?” that Belmar provided that information.
“Jeffery Williams is African-American,” he responded before stepping away from the microphone.
WRONG so damn tired of the PC boot licking BS. Unless Mr. Williams was born in Africa and became an American citizen he is NOT African-American, he is an American. If I get arrested I am not called an European-American. If friend of mine gets arrested he is not called Asian-American. Same with a few of my friends who are of Hispanic/Latino decent. We are called, white, asian, or latino. You can say all three of those but gods forbid you say black.

It would be a shame if some of their employers, that is if they have jobs, saw these tweets and decided that their services were going to become a distraction and a detriment to the company.

Simple solution to this problem. Sheriff needs to let it be known who these judges are so when the election for them to keep their seats come up people know who they are so they are voted out.

Matt questions for you. Do you happen to live in Chicago? Do you have family and friends that are and have been on the CPD? Do you work for the City of Chicago? Have you ever been to this “black site”? I am pretty sure the odds are no.
I on the other hand can answer yes to all of the above. So take off your tin foil hat and actually THINK for a second on the absurdity of this claim of this site operating for 40 years and now just coming to light from that UK rag.

Really Blaze, you are treating this as a real news story? Someone over there could have done at least a little research before rehashing this load of tripe.
Lets see building redone in the 1990s and it is 2015. So even if it was done in 1990 that is 25 years not 40 years. Then of course no complaints over that time till now. Someone has some real faith in the blue line to keep this secret a secret for that long.
So far only one crappy backwater police hating site has claimed this to be true. Some of you out there bitch and moan when those on the right are tarred and feathered without proof but you are willing to do the same.
your on the wrong site you belong on the stupid sharpton network
I agree totally. The Guardian is a tabloid and not worth the paper it is printed on. I thought the people that worked at the Blaze were supposed to be good at their jobs and actually do some legit research and not just cut and paste out of the National Enquirer of the UK

Guys this Simmons guys must be serious. He capitalized a lot of letters in his tweets. So it must be true. Al Gore told me so and he is the inventor of the interweb.

Why would this kid be afraid of a gun? Could it be because the left keeps pounding into their heads that guns are evil and bad.
We should do a social experiment with all of these liberal crybabies, put them in a closed room with a known murderer for one hour and put them in a room with a gun sitting on the table for one hour. In which room do they think they will feel more unsafe?
A gun is a tool. Just the same way a hammer, fire, knife etc is a tool. You don’t fear the tool itself you fear the person who is wielding the tool.

I actually feel sorry for people like this. How sad of an individual do you have to be to look at everything through the prism of your skin color. I guess somewhere someplace in the history of people like this they were given preferential treatment because of the color of their skin. Now they have to wonder if everything they have “earned” is because of their skill set and hard work or because someone was saying you are not good enough to earn it on your own but we will give it to you anyway.
Guess it must be like coming in 2nd at the Special Olympics where everyone gets a medal. Then again those in the SO actually try.

Greenpeace only cares about their funding and good media coverage so they can get…..more funding. The environment is only paid lip service and even then only to parts of the environment that they approve of. Peru should throw the book at these thugs and sue GP as well since they sponsored this.

Yep one of the 1st things I noticed was a male wearing his hat in church. I was taught the only only time you wear a hat inside is when you are in the military and you need to wear it for something official while on duty. Other than that men doff hats off when they cross the threshold of a building.

Must not make snarky comment about women with 1/2 a brain, must not do this. Damn to late….

NO NO NO NO NO NO WTF is wrong with people? We have rules and laws for a reason, and the PotUS is supposed to enforce and obey these laws as well. Someone needs to give this idiot a swift kick in the pants (the front of the pants) so he can STFU and stop trying to give the executive branch more power.

This isn’t the damn movies where people shoot guns out of someones hand or wings them in the arm and they fall down and or give up. In the real world if you pull a gun you shoot to kill, plain and simple. You do not hope and pray your 1st round does the job if you have to you empty the entire mag and insert a new one and repeat till the threat is gone. This “gentle giant” who from the store theft showed no problem throwing his size and weight around to get what he wanted was determined a threat to by the officer to his life.
 August 17, 2014 at 4:35pm
I find it amusing that people are touting the “gentle giant” and the “college student” angle. Here in Chicago almost every gang banger that gets shot is a “good student, honor student, or an active member in his church” according to family and friends. Never mind his gang tats or gang affiliations.
I wonder how much of the same is the case with this.
 August 17, 2014 at 4:32pm
Damn Fletch it seems as if you are attempting to insinuate that the LEO just executed Brown. If Brown has disengaged and is then going to charge the cop with the apparent attempt to do harm should the cop just stand there and take a beating? Reports from the cop were that Brown tried to get his gun when they struggled in the squad car. So just say for S&G that Brown does not get fired upon while he charges the cop and another physical incident happens. I am going to bet knowing Browns size that he would have been able to hurt the officer and possibly take his weapon and use it on him. Then the officer is dead. I for one will wait for the evidence to come out before saying who is guilty or not.
As for the autopsy of Brown I wouldn’t mind seeing that done either. Wonder if there were drugs in his system.

The more I hear Mr. Smith talk the more I like him. He doesn’t sugar coat stuff and calls out people on their BS. Kudos to him
remember the RGIII comments by one espn commentator a few years ago? Stephan A tore him apart... he really is level headed... AND he admitted he listens to Rush and Levin all the time
Stephen A. actually is friends with Mark Levin and appears on his radio show periodically. He tells it likes he sees it. No BS.
1914 America=Land of the free, home of the brave
2014 Amerika=Land of the sheep, home of the gay
Smith calls it...like he sees it. And America is with Smith. Not Bayless. By the way Bayless, you relatives would be turning over in their graves. All of them. Keep defending Dungy...he is a class act. Maybe Bayless should take his soccer loving ass over the pond?
@Whtwulf I agree... NOTHING IS MORE ATTRACTIVE than the TRUTH!!
Nothing 'sells better' than the TRUTH !! Nothing keeps you in business longer than being known to tell the TRUTH!! PS I love Tony Dungy!
I'm am so sick and tired of the blackmailing-uber sensitive Gays. I wouldn't hire him unless he was the best in his field and this guy isn't. In fact, I've heard if he wasn't gay, he wouldn't have been drafted at all. I'm sick of the strong arm tactics. I would close my business before I baked them a cake IF I DIDN'T WANT TO; or take their photos IF I DIDN'T WANT TO... the operative words are "if I did not want to". WE either have to get back to FREEDOM, my friends, or we'll lose it all !! Those people, the gays, are free to be gay...they just can't make me like it...tough.
So you love and support truth, but don't like the guy who told the truth about himself?
Stephen A is a lib, but he's not your typical lib, and I think his Christian upbringing has some thing to do with that. He will call a spade, a spade (no pun intended). There's hope for a guy like him. I've always like him for that quality.
Harry, do you even think about what you say?
Basically, you're taking the honor of telling the truth and trying to spread it to the shame of sexual perversion. That was your intention, right?
What exactly do you consider to be the "shame of sexual perversion"? Be specific. And then tell me why.
So you heard he wouldn't have been drafted if he wasn't gay? Do you realize that he is only the second SEC Defensive Player of the Year to be drafted outside of the first two rounds? Or that he was widely regarded to be a third or fourth round pick before his announcement? Or that he was first team All-American in the toughest conference in the country, that is known for its defensive excellence?
But, yeah, I'm sure you're right about his being gay getting him a shout in the NFL. By the way, have you read any stories vilifying the other 31 coaches for NOT drafting him? No? Oops, looks like the "blackmailing uber-sensitive gays" are slacking on their job.
If you want to talk homophobic nonsense, that's fine and dandy, but please, PLEASE learn something about football before you try to judge this man on his body of work.

Once again nobody sees the entire story. Similar to the Rodney King video we see just the ending. Nobody sees RK try to run over the police and when finally stopped get out of the car and charge the police.
I am willing to bet that most of you have never tried to restrain someone high on PCP or a similar drug. A 110 lb woman will end up throwing around a 200 lb cop like a rag doll. How about we wait for the investigation before we condemn.
I guess she WASN'T high on PCP (nobody does that sh*t anymore genius) or she would have thrown him off....she did not. If our CHP officers can't handle a 110lb woman without a dozen blows to their face then those pu**ies need to find new work.

OK as tragic as this is we do NOT know the whole story. People are under the impression that you call an ambulance and poof they just magically show up in 3-5minutes. Sorry but this is not the reality of the situation. There are only so many ambulances in a given area. When these ambulances are on a call they do not get to drop that run to take up another one. They have to take that run.
Now here is the really sad part 90% of EMS runs are complete BS. People calling for stubbed toes, a kitten scratch, a cold, or head or stomach ache that has been going on for 2-3 days but they call at 0230 in the morning. (yes I have been on everyone of those calls sometimes in the same day) So while the ambulance crew is responding to a BS call a real emergency call is tuck waiting in queue for the next available ambulance to come free.
I can’t tell you how many times I have seen the EMS system abused. People with the sniffles and 2 cars in the driveway that want a ride in the ambulance to the emergency room is a common thing.
So while it is tragic that this man died an ambulance not being available is not the fault of the hospital, or the VA.
