    I refuse to believe that anyone, even conservatives, are so foolish as to not understand that there are more than 100,000,000 million people in Afghanistan and Pakistan. You don’t get even with one Pakistani by bombing some other random Pakistani, even though they’re both Pakistani. “Same kind of turds,” indeed!

    Even those who were not tortured report having been treated horribly.

    We have not actually stopped. We are still doing it.

    EVERY American involved in this supposed “torture” says that these techniques saved American lives by preventing terrorist attacks.”
    Well, they WOULD say that, wouldn’t they?
    " Were some Terrorists uncomforted?"
    The point is: none of them were “terrorists.” You’re not a “terrorist” until a jury convicts you in a court of law of terrorism. Until then, you’re innocent. Or didn’t you take civics class in high school? It was required in my time.
    “If you think that’s torture, try talking to a POW that was in the hands of the Vietnamese, Japanese or Germans and ask them what torture is. It wasn’t lack of sleep and loud music they went through. "
    Well, actually, it was. I’ve spoken to victims of torture who said that sleep deprivation was worse than having their fingers cut off.
    “Oh and try to talk to an American that’s been captured by the Islamic State (ISIS). "
    None of whom were part of this report.

    I disagree…I would say the Garner death at least fits the classic destination of reckless endangerment.

    The point is, the cops didn’t need to put their paws around the dude’s neck to restrain his 350-pound self. What was he going to do, run away?

    I wanna know why there was any need for an arrest in the first place. In NYC, which recently changed public pot smoking to a desk appearance ticket, surely selling loosies is a misdemeanor offense that ought to be handled by a desk appearance ticket.

    Under the American system of justice, previous offenses are not to be considered in arrests or in trials. In trial, the only way previous offenses can be mentioned is if the defendant testifies. So what you are saying is literally un-American.

    Question: When someone shoots a cop, does the prosecutor ever turn over the evidence to the grand jury without pushing for an indictment? Um, no.

    Seriously – I thought the same thing. Seriously. Unimpressed.
