blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen: "County Law! County Law!" *

"County Law! County Law!" *

Police not "getting along" with Rodney King and giving him the "what for" 

A federal appeals court has ruled that we have a First Amendment right to film the police while they are in the course of doing their duties.  That seems to be common sense, but it's good to know the next time the cops tell you to "quit filming!!!"  (But these days, they film themselves with in car cameras more than anyone else does.)

* Title is a callback joke to cops being (voluntarily) filmed here.

Heard about this on Russ Martin's show about a year ago. Hilar. County Law, County Law. Priceless.

Far from common sense, some states and cities have enacted laws that declare you to be obstructing if you film them.

And people wonder why I hate cops.

Will it soon be ok for citizens to "taze" back...?

I think we should do a "Rodney King" to the guy who is always holding a sign by Walmart wanting $$$. One good %$%@ kicking and it would be the last time we see him.

The only problem with this is SELECTIVE EDITING.

The mainstream media broadcast the most violent and inflammatory footage of the Rodney King beating over and over again, but the ONE THING they did not show was the very beginning of that video — when (the very huge) King got out of his car and threw the very first punch at police officers (that's why a jury acquitted those officers).

Watts burned because of the media's irresponsible behavior!

2:26 I saw that man getting gas in Boyd Sunday evening. It looked like that big belly of his has shrunk. BG must have felt sorry for him and ordered him some Nutri-System.

3:08...You are a blithering idiot! Rodney King was 6'3, 230-250 and did not appear to great shape at the time of his beating. Two halfway decent trained cops could have subdued and handcuffed him without resorting to a free for all beating.

So what if he swung first. That doesn't give officers free rain to continue beating him for sport.

The media may have been responsible for selective editing, but only idiots would result to such violence in retalition for his beating.

4:42, I think cops should have free rain. In fact the whole state could use a good free rain..... you know.... to fill up the ogallala and keep the grass fires down.
I was but a tike when I first saw the king beating. I remember being angry and thinking that it could be any other innocent person receiving that.
When I expressed my opinion to my dad, he laughed and said "you'll figure it out".
When I went to college and met black people for the first time I knew exactly what my dad meant.
Side note.... Rodney king was a homosexual who help spread the aids virus around.

Actually, he was in good shape, so good that the officers had good reason to think he had been in prison (and had access to weight-lifting equipment). Furthermore......given his demeanor and attitude, they also had good reason to believe he was high on PCP at the time of the beating (a man can withstand all kinds of pain when he is on that drug and is an EXTREME danger to other people).

I don't know how big you are, but 6'3 and 250 pounds is NOT puny!

Nigger should have gave up and he wont get his butt beat. Most of them know not to act like him when the cops are around. TB
