Setting up a trap to lure someone into his garage? Seems to me this guy intended to kill someone. I am glad the judge threw the book at him.

"Maybe you should consider that in your stalking posters... and making the accusations you criticize others of..."

Reb... How does this align with authourity protecting itself and it's own at the expense of those they hold authourity over? Or was it the statement that those who defend these authouritarians out of some misguided loyalty, found the statement offensive?

I make a statement regarding any post of interest. Somebody responds. I answer. How is that stalking? Of course there are those who think everything is somehow directed at them whether openly or covertly. But this being an open forum, we have to make exceptions in overlooking the results of the struggles and personal issues of all.

"Wow, how that is "good" quite an interesting perspective"


Its good because a premeditated murder has been locked away. Obviously, the jurors didn't buy his "castle doctrine" defense, especially when it was shown that he lured the victim to the garage with cash being left there...and then after wounding the man, he repositioned himself to fire off the fatal shot..

My link is an update to an older discussion about this crime. It is sorta good because the perp got a hefty sentence for killing the student.

Regardless of all of that, the story as posted did not change the facts at all. So how is linking from there "cop hating"???

I didn't think a cite had to be "loving" (remotely or otherwise) to report the facts. In fact, after the police released video and audio of the incident, it turned out to be just as I, Crooks and Liars, and many other news sites reported it to be -- a CLEAR case of police brutality on a person guilty of no crime other than being brown in his own neighborhood.

So again, how is that "cop hating"???

Equating police brutality with cop hating comes from a long line of tradition where authourity and their methods must not be challenged and those who do so must be put in their place, discredited, called enemies of the state or heretics, and even killed.

This authourity, be it secular or religious, uses the same methods to maintain that power. Be it secular or religious institutions, the spotlight is often turned from those who abuse the power, such as police, priests, or bankers, and is instead thrown back on the people who cry abuse... claiming they are trying to attack the institutions these criminals work for and of course calling them cop, priest, or capitalistic haters.

That has always been the way of mankind but sadly there are those who have no part of that authourity who will mindlessly defend those institutions for whatever personal reason, even if it means letting the criminal off the hook.

If that doesn't make you go hmmmmmmmmm... nothing should.

So I guess there will not be an explanation as to how posting about police brutality equates to cop hating...so we can only conclude (using that same reasoning), posting about Obama and/or Democrats equates to Obama hate (and the same in regards to liberal threads on anti-conservative issues)...

It is what it is...

SE, if you had a glass of water in the upstairs bedroom of our farmhouse where us kids slept, it would be frozen in the morning.

One arm came out from under to covers to feel for your clothes.

You would grab them and make a mad dash downstairs to dress by the heater in the living room (hopefully dad had already started a fire!).

When I was in grammar school, my grandma lived in town and had running water, a gas stove, and electricity. Her sister lived in the country and had a hand pump for water (that had to be primed), a wood stove for cooking, and a pot belly stove for heat.
