Re: “Fatal police shooting followed by angry protests as crowd gathers

KARK at noon repeatedly spoke to the same eye-witness, who emphatically stated several times that the suspect was unarmed. He knew this because the suspect was running, holding a bag in one hand, and holding his pants up with the other hand. Thus, he must have been unarmed. I think it's safe to say that no one knows the facts here yet, but two things immediately come to mind. (1) The assumption that the man was unarmed because he was sagging is not entirely logical; and (2) KARK is purposely feeding off of the animosity over the Trayvon Martin verdict.

Re: “Bicyclist dies from McCrory wreck injuries

"but with 7 bikes being hit it seems pretty likely that the driver of the car decided to drive through the space that the bicycles already occupied.

Try as I might, I can't imagine much beside driver error."

None of us on this board know anything yet. The driver could've been having a stroke or a seizure or something. Just as he could've been drunk, or high, or texting. We just don't know. It could've been a fatally unfortunate combination of road contours and glare. No one knows just yet. So folks posting on here acting like they know what happened, and that this is just another case of motorists not respecting cyclists is premature, unfounded, unsubstantiated pre-judgment.

Re: “Bicyclist dies from McCrory wreck injuries

None of you know what happened. None of you. Those of you assuming the fault of the driver, like those of you assuming the fault of the cyclists, are assholes of equal degree. Let the process unfold. And pray for the loved ones of the dead and injured, as well as the driver. Just because you ride a bicycle and have gotten pissed at drivers, or vice versa, means nothing as to this particular situation.

Re: “Huckabee advises evangelicals to double down

Of course, the great irony here is in his comments about Jason Collins and Tim Tebow. He, like most Tebow fans (and Tebow himself) cannot see that Tebow's devout and insanely public faith is just an attempt to pray the gay away. I mean, come on. We all know it.

Re: “Legislature today: Hendren gets heated over anti-zoning measure

end all zoning? Brilliant. That's just what we all want. To end up living next door to giant piles of garbage and animal waste.

Re: “Gov. Mike Beebe vetoes Voter ID bill

Gotta love the freedom and solid decision-making of a term limited Governor. I mean, I wish he could serve again, but I like seeing him veto these ridiculous measures. Thanks, Gov.
