Re: “Tough Questions, Frank Answers at Town Hall Meeting On Ferguson

john, you keep trying to get people to declare if Wilson is innocent or guilty of a crime with what we "BELIEVE TO DATE".

More (possible) evidence about a sound recording of the shots has just been discovered. It's another piece that needs to be added to the overall puzzle. The formal investigation is not complete. Until it is, declaring guilt or innocence by public opinion is pointless.

Re: “Radley Balko And The Greatest Timing Ever

Yeah, I'd worry about it, too, Yoyoid, if we actually HAD a racist attorney general. I think you have to go back to John Mitchell, for that.

Re: “Tough Questions, Frank Answers at Town Hall Meeting On Ferguson

I assume you mean mea culpa. I was going to let that go, but you keep at it.

Next time just say you were wrong. A lack of class, JC, a lack of class....

Re: “Radley Balko And The Greatest Timing Ever

REPUBLICANS????? Oh my GOD, shoot them before they multiply!

Your conspiracy suggestion rings mighty hollow considering they had imported considerable quantities of wood forbidden by federal and international law to import! That is called breaking the law.
I am further amazed that it is OK to shoot Mike Brown in your eyes, but horrible and unnecessary to place arrested people in guarded rooms until info can be gathered and a legal triage determined. Kinda screwed up priorities, eh yoyojohn???

Re: “Will Congress Address Police Militarization?

This is the stupidest subject for debate ever. If the police need military weapons to enforce the law, so what? Besides, the equipment is already tested. If it works in Baghdad it'll work in Nashville.

Re: “Can cars, bikes and pedestrians share Nashville's roadways without someone ending up in the hospital?

Nashville's motorists need to learn what a crosswalk is, keep a safe distance from bikers and cyclists and to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians, both at street-corner intersections and when coming out of business driveways that intersect sidewalks.

Pedestrians need to quit jaywalking.

If all of this is accomplished, motorists and pedestrians will safely co-exist.

"In my opinion Anderson likes the spotlight"

Did you ever hear Serpas? The most dangerous place in Nashville to be was between Serpas and any television camera. If you look up the phrase "attention whore" in the dictionary, it has his picture.

Re: “You Had One Job, Jim Tracy

complete version:
I know Dexter well. He is a wise-looking orange tabby with a distinguished-looking white bib and a slightly cynical expression, an intelligent face, and a bubba/buddha-cat body.

He is undaunted by his failed run for office, as there will always be a need for good write-in candidates as long as candidates such as Scott Desjarlais and judges like Casey Moreland continue to appear on ballets with depressing regularity.

When in need of a good write-in candidate, Dexter's your man! (Or your cat.)

Re: “Will Congress Address Police Militarization?

Chief Anderson is a politician he needs to investigated his own department eternally for racist discrimination within his own department. He can't guarantee that this could never happen in Nashville. He jumps on his soup box and criticizes current events in the news for his own political purposes. Domestic violence (rampant within department) or riots in other cities without all the facts being present. In my opinion Anderson likes the spotlight and someday I hope is held accountable for his words and Personal opinion. Half the police department is afraid to tell the truth for fear of repercution from their superiors. I would love to see the FBI and TBI investigate or audit the department and see what is really going on in Metro police department. In my opinion the guy is worse than Sherpas but with a brain and law degree.

Re: “Tough Questions, Frank Answers at Town Hall Meeting On Ferguson

Now on to better things.

Who feels, with WHAT WE KNOW AND BELIEVE TO DATE that Officer Wilson is free to go, justice has been served. Or, he should go to prison.

Remember, let us not concern ourselves with police brutality, looting. rioting- just this individual officer. Forget MB is a thug.

Systemic police/black problems are NOT to be included in making your decision. In other words Officer Wilson cannot be jailed for years because of real or imagined problems with blacks and cops. Focus on that awful day in Ferguson.

Re: “Radley Balko And The Greatest Timing Ever

No, actually there was heart felt satisfaction over the Gibson raid by members of this board. I wondered on this board about the necessity of the SWAT team but apparently the Gibson people were Republicans. Also, they had made donations to the GOP.

Re: “Tough Questions, Frank Answers at Town Hall Meeting On Ferguson

Mia Culpa yoyojohn, it seems I have spoken out of turn and misinterpreted the magazine. You have finally scored on the master, look for highlights on Sports Center

That being said, I stand by my take on the situation and reject most of what you say out of hand. Old habits die hard, I fall victim to the knowledge you are never right. But like that proverbial blind hog................well, it's NOT that you are right, it's just that I am wrong. But YOU can't be picky when victories are so few and far between, ehh, cowboy?

What difference does a simple semi-automatic warning shot to the brain make?
(The sort of outrage they had to live with at Pilot, since corporations are people, right).

Re: “Tough Questions, Frank Answers at Town Hall Meeting On Ferguson

@Prag: I have read somewhere that if a police officer thinks he is about to have his weapon taken from him he is justified in shooting an unarmed assailant. Considering the size of Brown and his previous actions, and if the cop's version is true, the shooting should be ruled justified. That doesn't mean it will be, though.

Side notes: 1. I'm not much of a fan of police, especially those who use their badge to bully citizens. I would rather deal with a mugger than a cop in a bad mood so don't get the idea my comments on this incident are because I'm cop-friendly. 2. Brown had THC in his system. In the past week I have read two accounts of people who ingested candy laced with THC and experience hallucinations, one of which led to a woman's murder. Could Brown have been in a psychotic state, even if only a mild one?

What is Hillary's reaction?
