Re: Our Police: Like Andy Taylor, or the Gestapo?

American police departments get the wrong kind of training, and that's an important part of our problems.

It can be done smarter and with better outcomes.

Re: My OWN little brother is so so lost....

Trump, if it were up to him, would SLASH the size of Big Government. ... This isn't rocket science BRO. It IS up to him, and he FAILED in that misguided goal even with a Republican Congress, Republican Supreme Court, Republican appointees everywhere, and most state legislatures in the hands of Repu...

You understand so little. Of course I revere the First Amendment. It preserves our freedom of speech. I love and am so grateful that Their USERS, of course, are free to do any damn thing they like.

Re: Our government, then and now

We have many people, many groups, many interests ... all with their own notions of what is best for us and our country. And so it has been since the first days of the United States. I love our diversity, the different points of view contending for acceptance, the struggle ever to make life better. W...

Re: Hypocrisy Liberal Style

When the SCOTUS upheld the individual right to keep and bear arms, 5-4, the minority actually wrote and held there IS NO INDIVIDUAL RIGHT to self defense? Think about that and stop all the crap like "no one wants to take your guns away" or "no one is denying you the right to self def...

Re: BLM is the BOMB!

Your thinking is exactly what the American police culture problem is. Dedication to the exercise of power, no limit on violence, the only goal being submission and dominance and repression. Policemen who have a combat mentality rather than a dedication to protecting all citizens, including lawbreake...

Coondog, I started an exhaustive correlation analysis to examine the points you just made.

My computer started groaning, then burst into flames, then went kablooey all over the desk.

In summary, I am forced to conclude that you are correct.

Re: BANG !

Justifiable homicides by firearms actually prove that guns are a benefit to society. Not so. A huge effect of the proliferation of guns is to cause the instances of "justifiable homicide" to skyrocket. But even these deaths are a small fraction of the total. Gun deaths from suicides are a...

Total bullshit. If the man had been white, he would not have been shot standing in his own yard. That is the problem ... you do not recognize the racism that inhabits your soul.
