Read the report.
He was armed with a knife.
Watch the video.
He was taken down, in a attempt to cuff and arrest him.
He RESISTED and attempted to RUN.
He CONTINUED to resist arrest. After being CONTINUALLY asked to ROLL OVER.
Look at it from a non-racial point of view for a change.
What are the odds he would have had the sh*t beat out of him if he simply COMPLIED and DID NOT resist ARREST by (a) running, and (b) refusing to roll over and get cuffed?
Why didn't the idiot just roll over?
Conservative's on-going Alprova stalkage from cartoon after cartoon is becoming more than strange.
Please make it stop.
Haha, Al -- nice pithy comment.
Rick, nice job sidestepping my point. Not that I'd expect you to engage in a constructive attempt to defend yourself.
Al -- I agree. I would hope that Society-at-Large would stop buying product or service from racists institutions, and put them out of business. Naturally, I could be wrong. But at least I would know where I wouldn't spend my dollars.
Rick -- I am obligated to serve someone whom I don't want to, for whatever reason? That doesn't sound like freedom to me -- more like slavery.
Logical fallacy, Rick.
That's like saying we've eliminated the drug problem and the violence associated with it, with the War on Drugs.
DJH -- correct.
This is why I don't agree with components of the Civil Rights Act.
Your property is YOUR property. You should be able to use it as you see fit, as long as you do not violate others' rights.
Even the racists. They should be allowed to be racially-discriminating if they choose to. Let the market determine its ultimate end.
Your company owns your employment.
You are an employee. You are bound to a contract you signed.
In effect, the employment opportunity is the property of the employer.
The corporation has rights, as do you.
Bottom line, in my opinion, if you have a problem with said company who employs you regarding their firearm rules, find another job.
When you walk on their premises, that they pay taxes for and bought the rights to, you are or should be obligated to respect their rights.
If the company does not want you bringing your guns on premises, especially if detailed contractually, adhere or risk termination.
Dear God I agree with Al for once.
