This is one of the most absurd statements I have seen posted here.

IMO, this has far less to do with entrenched racism in the police force and far more to do with systemic, nationwide issues with overly aggressive police officers. I said it before, the Thin Blue Line needs to be cleaned out. Too many former jocks, bullies, and military washouts. I agree, shad. I d...

I don't think we can assume that cops in these cases would have behaved differently is the victims were white. Race does play a role in this, but it's also a "cop problem" in addition to a racist problem. Too many cops are given carte blanche to murder citizens. Kelly Thomas, homeless man beaten to ...

I know offsides mentioned this before, but it is definitely times like these where I am extremely grateful to not be living in or near an urban center. Off topic but as much as I whine about Somerset, I can't imagine living in a city. There's just nothing appealing about being crammed in with hundr...

As usual, and this is no exception, I care much less about these types of ideas for this specific instance, but care much more about the slippery slope and what it causes...your idea is: why don't we profile? And, again, I'm listening to that idea...but where does it go? We "normally" elected Trump...

Politics And Current Events

The problem begins with a certain subset of people who want to be cops. They're high school bullies who want to have free reign to dominate others as grown ups. You give those types guns, badges, and arm them like they're going to take down bin Laden and it just feeds into their macho, I'm better th...

I posted the "this is normal" thing as a joke. I mean, yeah, it gets old seeing everything Trump does be dismissed as "Dems did the same!", but I certainly wasn't posting it as a damning and insightful indictment of the POTUS. I don't know why people have their panties in a wad but there are more th...

How tall were they? I have three pines that are probably a good 40 ft tall that I want to be rid of. Did they grind the stumps, too? These are all 30-40+ feet but most are pretty spindly. I didn't bother with stump grinding as it's on the edge of my property and along a ditch and there's nothing wo...

I guess I should have pointed out all the times a Democratic president has done the same. That one never gets old.

I used to have 2 cats. One say I caught one of them eating a chipmunk while the other batted the chipmunk's severed head too and fro like a ball.
