    Now, there’s been a second shooting. Only this time the perp WAS armed.

    Maybe I – as german – don t see it right or get only the information about the worst scenarios.
    But most times I read or hear that your police used guns to stop someone, there was someone dead after that. I think most US Policemen should have much more experience in shooting as most german/european Policemen, because here you can be happy if you shoot 100 rounds in a year on the shooting range. (I know much policemen which only get 50 to 70 rounds training). It looks like US Policemen are much faster with their weapons than elsewhere. Can someone give me a link for a statistic on weapon use by policemen in US? In Germany we had 2011 85 times shooting against humans overall: 49 warning shoots and 36 aimed shoots with 15 injured and 6 death.

    Here’s a statistic for you, Germany:
    “While the economic downturns of the last decade-and-a-half have taken their toll on the median income of all races and ethnic groups, blacks have been the hardest hit. By 2012, black median household income had fallen to 58.4 percent of white income, almost back to where it was in 1967 — 7.9 points below its level in 1999.”
    It ain’t just in the worshipful treatment of weaponry that the US of A is out of sync with your county; ‘tis in support of basic humanity. How’s Ayn Rand selling over there?

    Don’t walk like a duck, quack like a duck, and act like a duck and then complain when you are treated like a duck.

    The toon says it very well. Well done, Mr. Heller.

    “Either summed up my comment very nicely…”

    No racist stuff meant to be implied. i.e., if you look and smell like a Hell’s Angle in full regalia and you want a seat in a four star Michelin restaurant, you are probably not going to get one.

    A number of the peaceful protesters have been trying to stop the looting, with mixed success.

    He was there when it happened. Just like he was there in Iraq when it was perfectly peaceful under W. And he was there when Obama was born in Kenya.
