Re: “Cops and juries

P.S. The little boy's name is Devon Quinn - he lives in Chicago - if one can get so outraged about Philando Castile - who lived in Minnesota - what about all the forgotten children, killed or shot - in Chicago. And what to do about black gangs shooting innocent adults and children. NOW. Over 300 already this year - killed - 736 killed last year. Over 2,000 shootings. Stop with all the easy, easy words -
what everybody HAS ALREADY SAID. Think about little Devon Quinn - paralyzed - and the gang shootings go on and on and on.

Re: “Cops and juries

So easy, easy, easy to write. And the same thing over and over and over. We KNOW - every columnist and letter-writer and comment-writer keeps repeating the same thing - and it is so easy - feel good? How about tackling black on black crime - gang members shooting innocent children - but they are expendable. A three-year-old black boy now totally paralyzed - he got in the way. How do you tell a 3-year-old he will never run and play again? We get it- of course police reform is needed - and many cities are dealing with this. Outrage is so easy - how about dealing with what ALSO is happening NOW - oh, no, you might have to think outside your tiny box.

Re: “Megyn vs. Alex

But I do agree with him about the interview - Megyn Kelly rocked. Ridicule works.

Re: “Megyn vs. Alex

Good point. Your ratios don't make much sense, but a good point. I was not deconstructing Howard Dean (what's to deconstruct - he's such a little elf, but cute), but Lyons. Many of the right and the left columnists these days have so much in common - hysteria and so much bias. Haven't you noticed? Lyons is just better at his craft.

Re: “Megyn vs. Alex

And I quote: "the absurd allegation that Hillary Clint would show up for a presidential debate high on drugs."

Totally ridiculous - shows the right loonies will say anything. I agree.

However, I wonder why Lyons didn't also mention the absurd allegation that Donald Trump would show up for a presidential debate high on drugs. All that sniffing! He was on cocaine. So says Howard Dean and political pundit Carrie Fisher and MANY others. The internet was abuzz.

Totally ridiculous - shows the left loonies will say anything. I agree.

Oh, but that's different, ain't it. Actually, such hyperbole is typical of Both Sides. Too bad Lyons only concentrates on the purity of the left. So easy. Alas.

Re: “Cops and juries

And I quote, "You're okay with authority doing whatever it pleases because of the fact they in a place of authority?" Of course not. And it is this kind of hyperbole that makes the left as loony as the right.

I said there are bad policemen - get them out. This guy misconstrued the situation - but he would have done the same thing if the victim was white. He was scared for his life and thought the victim was going for his gun. To bring racial bigotry into it? Look and listen to all the videos.

It isn't that simple - that is what I am saying. Police reform is necessary - of course. But what's the excuse for blacks killing blacks - which goes on - which is why I brought up Chicago. Where's the outrage? I have yet to hear Black Lives Matter confront this. Gangs rule, and innocent black people pay the price - what about them. Sure we should have had gun controls - but that tipping point was reached long ago - for which I blame the Republicans.

So, in addition to talking about what Tolbert wants to talk about - how about the much more complicated issue of violence among blacks - oh, no, let's ignore that. That we let go on - and it is happening all over - what about those blacks affected by this slaughter - oh let's not face that. So much easier to get outraged over this case - And I said easier. All the children murdered or shot - that's too hard, isn't it.

However, I was totally wrong to make those juvenile jokes about Autumn's name. I am sorry. The end.

Re: “Cops and juries

Oh, please, dear Winter, er, Autumn. Don't put yourself on such a lofty perch - you are as biased in your way as bigots are in theirs. I live in Chicagoland, land of the drive-by shootings. Black-on-black crime. Last weekend, there were 5 killings, 30 shootings of people. Black-on-black crime on the south and west sides. Am I racist? - I am FOR all the black people who cannot walk down the street, sit on their front porches, be assured their kids are really safe on the way to school, have to keep their kids INSIDE because they might get shot - because of this black-on-black crime - GANGS. All black lives do matter - including these poor innocent people Summer, er, Autumn, save all your self-righteous sympathy for THEM. Sure there are bad police - prosecute them - but when a jury finds a cop INNOCENT - don't try to second-guess them in your condescending way as above. Come to Chicago - live on the south side - see what is going on - but it so much easier to judge from afar - which you love to do. Pitiful, dear Spring, er, whatever-your-name-is. And I am a woman, and feminist.
