The Campaign For DA

12.04.2014

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts


  • I really have no idea if the cop should have been indicted for the "choke hold" in New York, but I'm leaning "no." He's probably a lousy cop who exercises poor judgment, but he probably didn't commit a crime. 
  • But if there was anything that gives credence to my "Too Many Cops" rant, it's that video. How many cops do you need to enforce a silly don't-sell-cigarettes-without-collecting-tax law? How many was that? Six? Seven? Eight? Good lord. 
  • If you say, "He'd be alive if he hadn't broken the law", you are pretty shallow. That belief could be used to justify a cop shooting someone for speeding. 
  • The cops did a good job of handling the protests in New York. The crowds wanted to peacefully march in protest so the cops just calmly walked beside them. All went well.  In Ferguson, the cops would have put on riot gear and try to block the street. 
  • When it comes to getting indicted, it must be conceded that cops and prosecutors generally get a pass for illegal conduct. 
  • Fort Worth motorcycle death
  • There's some crazy/cool artwork behind the Decatur Visitor's Center which now has Christmas decorations. I'm not sure who decided to build that display there because no one ever sees it because of its obscure location. 
  • Watched some of one hour special for the Christmas tree lighting last night at Rockefeller Center. Mrs. LL said that all Mariah Carey needed for Christmas was a bra. 
  • I've never seen Miracle on 34th Street.
  • Heard from a very reliable source that Dallas DA Craig Watkins fired an assistant DA during a trial a couple of weeks ago for supporting Watkins' opponent, Susan Hawk, in the recent election. 
  • A man decapitated himself in public in Dallas.

Bridgeport and WC Parents should be proud of their little darlings. These Twitter accounts and the things posted are disgusting. It got twitter banned at BHS. Should get a lot more than that done.

If you think the comments on here get bad, try reading the ones on the article about the guy who killed himself yesterday.

'Murica!

The cops in New York didn't have the protesters throwing rocks, bottle, and debris at them either. So, yeah, makes sense that the folks in Ferguson were wearing riot gear.

"it must be conceded that cops and prosecutors generally get a pass for illegal conduct"

Based on what? Your biased liberal opinion? Because that's straight up horseshit and you known it, counselor.

Stay Classy

The apparent Facebook page for the deceased motorcyclist features a photo of his new rice rocket and one of his more recent "likes" was a page promoting motorcycle stunt driving. Hmmmmm....

I am sure any city in America can look forward to that beautiful day, sometime in the future, when they will rid themselves of the crazed sellers of loosies.

It requires air in the lungs and an open airway to speak. His airway was not blocked if he could repeatedly say "I cannot breath". He was probably having was having an asthma attack and also his carotid artery was blocked, resulting in him passing out. How many seconds was he in a choke hold? Morbidly obese people succumb to a blocked carotid artery very fast.

Thank you! I can't stand it when people say that.

The cigarette tax thing was a post hoc excuse after the cop killed Garner.

If fat boy would've put his hands behind his back and stopped running his blue gums he would've never been choked. So what we have here folks is just another dumb black not obeying the law and his family will end up multi millionaires because of it.

No trolling bullet points about illegals getting amnesty and the repub's playing with themselves instead of fighting O?

The police should just give citations for petty things like selling cigarettes, prostitution, smoking a joint, etc. Plus, any bouncer could have talked the guy into cooperation in a couple of minutes. I use to work in a psychiatric facility where there were always the staff that loved a good take-down. Gang mentality.

RTG is terrible. Please send us another one today.

I'm not sure all the credit for the handling of the protests in NY goes to the police. I think it was because the protesters were appropriate and ultimately more effective than if they had chosen to create a path of destruction.

Good comments -- voice of reason. On the other hand, police are generally too prone to violence these days. For a more respectful society, disarm the police. Live by example.

10:06. I agree. I have requested my money back for today's post.

That's some high-quality trolling there. Your point is a good one and well worth discussion, but that won't happen here. Hope you're prepared for the Attack of the Mouth Breathers that you'll get today.

So I guess today RTG stands for "Random Thoughts Guy"?

I finally understand the purpose of this blog. It is a sh!te stirrer. That's all. It mirrors the government. They just want to keep the middle class occupied and fighting amongst themselves while they steal our freedom. I know I am giving Barry a lot of credit here, but that is what he does, it's all deflection from the solutions of the real issues that face Americans.

There are two classes in this country. The Cops and the Non-Cops. Guess who always wins?
