  • Mr Bolton should be prosecuted himself. Disgusting war criminal!
    For there is [another] kind of violence, slower but just as deadly, destructive as the shot or the bomb in the night. This is the violence of institutions -- indifference, inaction, and decay. This is the violence that afflicts the poor, that poisons relations between men because their skin has different colors. - Bobby Kennedy (Mindless Menance of Violence)

    • He also thinks that the UN should be dissolved 'cause America doesn't need it, and international cooperation is for commies.

        • President Trump's golf cart rentals in the U.S. have cost taxpayers $300,675 since he took office, TMZ reported. The figure only refers to Trump's domestic golf outings.

          The total expense of Trump's golf outings, including Secret Service protection, comes out to an estimated $77 million.

            Not when he can get the taxpayers to pay.

          This story absolutely infuriates me.

          This cop entered a mans home and now witness testimony contradicts her account. She shot and killed this man, and she was already given special treatment. And then she is being charged with manslaughter, meaning she probably won't do much time. Absolutely a miscarriage of justice.

          A clear double standard. A young 26 year old man with a promising career and academic background is now gone because of this reckless cop.

              Yup. Its extremely rare for a cop to be convicted. The charges in this case are completely inadequate, so I wouldn't be surprised if what you say becomes true.

              A recent story started to help improve my perception, and then this just took it two steps back.

              The story that I'm discussing was this:

              https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...shooting-teen/

              15 years isn't enough, but this is an extremely rare story in this country where a cop does get convicted.

              This lady will get off I think.

              • I suspect so. The big question has always been how she got into the apartment. It is being reported that the door was either unlocked or ajar. In any event, she had no difficulty entering.

                If that is accurate, she has a case for justified use of deadly force. It might not be enough to save her career, but it should be enough for the higher standard of reasonable doubt.

                • There is no case for the justified use of force, onejay. Absolute no case. Want to know why? It wasn't her ****ing apartment. She should be charged with murder. How could she not tell it wasn't her apartment? Did you even read the article?

                  By the way, she was telling the man to let her in so it kinda destroys that argument. Two witnesses said that.

                  The man was killed in his own residence. Do me a favor, if you are trying to emulate kidiot try harder.
