    @MangeyMoose:
    Nope, never been there. However, I have read almost everything Stephen King’s ever written, and I think that oughta count for partial credit. ;)

    @louieglutz and Michael Moreno:
    18 years old is a kid, the alleged theft is irrelevant to the shooting, and the cop could easily face a first-degree murder charge. After all, they call it premeditation when you gun down someone who has surrendered and is explicitly posing no threat.

    But, hey – way to put your racism on display, pinheads. You could hardly have been more obvious about it without putting on a pointy white hat and carrying a CSA flag.

    @Night-Gaunt49:
    Perhaps you should reread my comment; I’m solidly on the side of the protesters, and I’m so white I can get sunburned driving down the road. This behavior is outrageous, and I’m glad to see that someone’s finally taken some action to de-escalate the situation over the past couple of days.

    @curtisls87:
    It’s a local problem in that these cops have obviously received little, if any, training in the proper use of that equipment. They need to leave their toys alone if they can’t play with them responsibly, and that’s a purely local shortcoming.
    .
    @Various commenters:
    Whether the kid stole some cigars or not is wholly irrelevant. The cop used deadly force on someone who was standing still, hands in the air, unarmed and posing no threat. If this was about some stolen cigars – or anything else, really – that’s when the cop should’ve cuffed him for questioning. Shooting him dead in that circumstance is inexcusable.

    The biggest problem with Rand Paul’s piece in Time is that he carefully blurs the distinction between the different levels of government involved. His libertarian “brand” is that the most power should be in the most local hands; the feds should exercise little influence, while your state and city governments affect you the most.
     
    Unfortunately, that is exactly the problem in Ferguson and elsewhere. The racist punishment problems he points out primarily come from local law enforcement, and historically we can see that the feds have to step in when the locals abuse their power.
     
    Gosh, if you look at it that way, it’s almost as if the federal government acts as a check on local fiefdoms. Checks and balances…remember when we used to USE those to make things work, instead of abusing them for partisan gain?
     
    As for the laughable statement that we have no idea what happened…we have multiple eyewitness accounts. We have video. Soon, we’ll have the coroner’s report.
     
    The story that has emerged so far is that the cop initiated the incident by telling Brown and a friend to get out of the street. What immediately followed is admittedly fuzzy, but the eyewitnesses all agree that a shot was fired while the policeman was still in the car, but it did not kill (and may not even have hit) Brown. Brown then started RUNNING AWAY from the policeman, who exited his car and pursued on foot while firing. Brown stopped and turned around, hands up, and the policeman continued firing until Brown was dead.
     
    I have yet to hear any justification for anything that cop did from the point he decided to get out of his car. There is no indication that the officer was in danger or that Brown had committed any crime…so why was any pursuit, armed or otherwise, called for? What possible excuse can there be for firing on an unarmed man whose arms are raised in the universal “I surrender” posture?

    .
    Remember Dubya and his “signing statements”? Or were those okay because he was a spend-and-spend “conservative” who never saw a budget he couldn’t break?

    I have seldom seen such pure crap as that Komando video. Net neutrality is not something new that would be imposed; it’s the current status quo that would be preserved. Not to mention that, if it went away, so would her livelihood – unless she’s willing to bribe all those cable providers to let her in the fast lane.

    You have that backwards. We have net neutrality now; what we want is to KEEP it. The cable companies and FCC are trying to get rid of it.

    Hey, for once HQ made an actual funny! Gotta say I’m surprised nobody else seems to know the song, though.

    Plus, it’s Uncle Sam holding the spatula and being surprised. He didn’t notice or care about what happened to the other “cuts.”
