To be fair to Troy Smith- most Ohio State football players graduate with a degree in bachelors. LOL!

Folks raised in Progressive societies, like Hong Kong, apparently aren’t taught any thought towards other people. They can punch a 78 year old woman or kill a baby, to correct a “mistake” so they aren’t “punished” with that “mistake”, as one famous Progressive put it.

I like all the comments about teachers unions, etc., etc. Read the article. This happened at CHARTER SCHOOLS. Maybe the definition of a charter school is different in FL, but typically they aren’t staffed with union teachers. I’M NOT AN ADVOCATE FOR PUBLIC UNIONS, in fact I’m against public sector unions and support ACT 10 in my home state (WI). I just wanted to point out that this isn’t isolated to public schools, or teachers, or Catholic priests, or politicians, or construction workers, or illegal immigrants, or cops, or store clerks, etc., etc.. This is an epidemic of today. The sexualization of our children (even worse in more progressive/socialist Euro-trash countries). Children are left with broken family units and people are wondering how a child can be enticed by “a person of trust”? Parents aren’t parenting! My parents were teachers and neither of them had students over to our house. That would be viewed as inappropriate. When I spoke on the phone I had to use the phone in our kitchen because it had a cord on it (remember those?) that way they COULD eves drop on me. They were parenting. They knew where I was. And if I snuck off somewhere I shouldn’t be I was punished. Parents today need to be more vigilant than ever. They want the toys (PCs, smart phones, etc.) but aren’t taking ANY of the responsibility for monitoring them… same with their kids. Maybe because they’re too distracted themselves to be available to monitor their children???
This site needs a thumbs up option because this is one of the best comments on this thread. YOU GET IT. I wish others would. Being your kids "friend" is the worse method of raising them that is possible in this day and age.
No thumbs up, no like button, we want your words sir. I agree, good statement. "Thumbs Up"...."Like".

These young men will receive some form of American justice in this world…
They will receive God’s judgment and ultimate justice in the next.
Man if fallible, therefore his justice can also be fallible. God is infallible, therefore His justice is tempered perfectly, administered flawlessly, and righteous to all.

Air out all the dirty laundry boys! I like Cruz, but if he’s not constitutionally able to run for POTUS than he can serve us (well) in the Senate. Air it out now. Don’t let the Progressive media outlets air it out for you. God knows they would never make an issue over “their” candidate, but you DO KNOW damn well they’re going after Conservative GOP runners with both barrels! They’ll cover the RINOs fair, but not Conservatives or Libertarians.

Sen. Rand Paul praised Beck to Politico, saying he “connects, in a very visceral way, with those who believe in Constitutional government. Glenn’s influence goes beyond the political as he understands that the very root of our crisis is spiritual. Likely, no other broadcaster in America attracts as fervent a following.”
This is ABSOLUTELY true! More people listen to Rush and Hanity, but those who listen, read, or view the websites of Beck connect more with him than any other “opinion person”. (I can’t think of another way to describe that crowd.)

fairly innocuous story here, but there’s a lot here.
Should the kids advise the city they’re filming? Yes, but then they’d have to buy a permit and they’re poor college kids doing a school project. Why do only wealthy studios get to film there? That’s a question of access. Possibly first amendment… wobbly on that.
How was the police response? I don’t know how long it took the to respond, but from the snippet I got in the article and news story, very well. I know the police bashers are out and are making their point that police don’t do anything right, blah, blah. Try living in a civilized society with no police. Can’t do it. Then you have tribal Afghanistan. You can keep that. Does the federal police (FBI, DEA, DHS, etc.) overreach? Yes I believe they do. But unlike every other country in the world, the U.S. police system was designed to operate from the local level. This model best serves their local communities. Different communities have different problems, so cookie-cutter policing programs don’t work. In England, Australia, and definitely eastern Europe and Asia, the police is built from the central government out. They operate more as a shakedown group for the ruling class. Wow! I was off on a tangent there.
Bottom line: the kids were being kids. The cops reacted appropriately. No one got hurt. Lessons were learned.

This country is racist! There is no justice for minorities here! A bar owner is murdered by someone paid off by Saudi National and now the murderer is off the hook, only because he’s white. Well, I’ve had it! I can’t- a… ahem… they let who go?… Oh… never mind.

Many people today are making comparisons between the U.S. government and the George Orwell book “1984″. There are a lot of goo parallels there with NSA, DHS, etc., etc.. With the implementation of Obamacare I see more parallels to an Orwell book, but not “1984″. I see the parallels between Progressives (Democratic and Republican Progressives) and “Animal Farm”. The pigs (ruling class) made a bunch of rules for the barnyard animals to follow so that everyone would be “equal” and the farm would run efficiently. But more and more the rules didn’t apply to the pigs. Does no one else see this happening? [That last question was for the progs and lefties; the Conservatives, Libertarians, and Constitutionalists do see it, and vividly.]

I had fun watching that video. Is soccer is not your game there are some cool videos of basketball handling skills on YouTube. If you’re not into that, well, I can’t help you. I’m a casual soccer fan at best, but this was a fun demonstration to observe.

Leave him alone. He is not, has never wanted to be, a public person. There is no reason for TheBlaze or TMZ, or anyone to report on his location. His blood will be on all of your (the media) hands!
Where they racist bad guys going to look “nowhere in particular"?

Like the owner of the restaurant, pop/country isn’t my thing, but I’d be honored to host a class-act like Miss Swift any day. She’s a great role model for kids, unlike most pop stars who just exploit kids and expose them to sex and vice.

I hope the lady paid back that IKEA store by purchasing something she’ll never be able to assemble. :)

I reject your comment. I hope that was just a lame attempt to be humorous.

This is a free speech issue. BUT – this video sets up a bias. If he were to arrest a person who had an “Obama 2012″ bumper sticker for DUI, that person could claim that the officer (chief in this case) already had a bias towards them prior to any actual contact and win their case. This already happened in Wisconsin. Disgraced State Senator Randy Hopper (R) was stopped and arrested for DUI. He got a good lawyer who found out the arresting officer had signed a recall petition against Hopper (several State Senators were recalled at the same time as Governor Scott Walker, some successfully, most unsuccessfully… both legislative houses are still Republican controlled). Hopper built his defense around the officer having a bias against him, and was acquitted by jury (juries are not mandatory on first offense DUI in WI, and the cost of a jury has to be picked up by the defendant). The arresting officer made no comment publicly, nor was there any witness that testified to the officer stating privately anything derogatory about Hopper. The only evidence of bias was his signature on a recall form and that was enough. Based on that, I believe this PA chief is doing his community a disservice because he is unable to take corrective enforcement action without perception of bias towards about 30% of the citizens (I’m assuming he works in a “red” county).

I have two thoughts on this:
1.) She just locked in her re-election by a landslide victory for making those comments. The backtracking won’t hurt her, because the apology is never given as much play as the original comment, nor is it given as much credence. Plus, her constituents know what’s in her heart.
2.) The reason police can’t solve murders in her district is because of the deep rooted “don’t SNITCH” mantra her community lives by.
I ask the poor black community of Chicago, and other poor urban communities of America (Gary, IN- I’m looking right at you): how is that “don’t snitch” stuff working out for you? You have an entire generation of young black people (73%) who are being raised by a single mother. They’ll be taught how to apply for government help and view that as a “lifestyle” instead of what it’s supposed to be, a safety net. They’ll be raised to fear police, resulting in being forced to pledge allegiance to a street gang, where they will go on to learn to devalue community, individual life, and morals in general.
well its got to be better because they could be fighting off lions, tigers, crocodiles ,elephants and rhinos. gorillas , pygmies and head hunters .
I reject your comment. I hope that was just a lame attempt to be humorous.

The contrast needs to be put in context. People in 1905 worked in their own neighborhoods, by necessity. Any travel outside of using ones own feet was a great luxury. Because of awesome advancements by entrepreneurs traveling by way of rail, road-vehicle, and (amazingly) air is all available at (comparatively) low cost, making it accessible to not only the working class but even the poor (at least in this country). In 1905, the only folks that needed to travel from 14th to 42nd were the folks who worked and made (a lot of) money in one part of NYC and lived in a lavish place in another part. The types of people in the 1905 video have no need to be transported by a rail vehicle underground. That would be, pardon the pun, beneath them today. Now they either drive their Mercedes Benz across town or fly in their helicopter to their mid-town office from their garden-estate mansions.
That’s my American dream.

So a cop actually shows a human side and a sense of humor and now that cop should be punished for it?
I don’t understand? Are cops unfeeling robots bent on taking people’s freedoms away, or are they supposed to be compassionate and understanding people, who are charged with the duty of protecting the people and property of their municipalities?
You punish a guy, even in a leadership position, for showing a little light-hearted humor and humanity to a person who wasn’t even charged with an ordinance (I believe the technical term is innocent), and you’ll turn that person into a callous, emotionally-numb robot that so many cop-hating Blaze readers describe.
You don't understand? There is a photo of an idiot above your post with a unicorn mask on his head.
If he was in the free market I would care less, however this is a government parasite that I have to clothe, feed and put a roof over his head.
So your right, don't punish just fire him and put him and his family in section 8 with all the other parasitic idiots, and it will cost me a lot less.
Bagoman vs Freeby
...and Bagoman is clearly right on this one, and so lucid as well. While I would not characterize this guy as a parasite, I certainly prefer this behavior to a numb robot or horses sass.
FREEBERTIE you need a lud? Take the wad out of your panties.
FREEBERTY... how does a cop throwing a unicorn mask on for a few seconds make him more of a parasite?
Are only people in the private sector allowed to joke around?
You are absolutely correct. I asked the elves, who live in my magic garden and they said cops were banned from wearing unicorn masks. Only Fairies and Democrats were allowed. Good call.
