If churches don't pay taxes, why do they still get the benefit of the tax-funded police service?

Shouldn't their god protect them from evil-doers?

Amazing how 95% of these stories on FARK land up being black people. Yet we hear the crybabies say how it isn't fair that the prisons are filled with a disproportionate amount of them. With all of the new technology, we have solid evidence that it isn't "whitey" that's framing them.

First, what does "land up" mean? Is that some sort of expression or idiom where you live? I have never heard it before.
Second, why did you bring race into it? How do you get from an article about two black kids stealing a camera to an (obviously faulty and over-simplified) generalization about race-crime statistics in the US?

You sir, are a dumbass.

"First, what does "land up" mean? Is that some sort of expression or idiom where you live? I have never heard it before."\

So the fact that you have never heard of this "idiom" is one of the reasons that you call this person a dumbass?

"...an (obviously faulty and over-simplified) generalization..."

The use of "an" is incorrect as it would have to accord with "generalization". The correct article would be "a" as "(obviously faulty and over-simplified)" is a sequestered phrase. A supercilious phrase since we all know what a generalization is.

You, sir, have the grammatical knowledge of a dumbass.

Well, they could create a private security force that inquires about thieves and questionable activities regarding the Church.

Look - I'm sure there are forums for over-educated shiatheads somewhere on the internet, but when a debate boils down to biatching about grammar, it's no longer a meaningful discussion.

What the original troll-poster said about 95% black, and the inference regarding prison population and victimization of one race, was absolutely stupid, and unfounded. Where are the facts that back this up, other than some abject personal bias? If YOU don't get that, then you are the dumb ass.

No. I based that assessment on his faulty and over-simplified generalization.

Sorry, but you are wrong. If the noun is modified by an adjective, the choice between "a" and "an" depends on the initial sound of the adjective that immediately follows the article. What you call a "sequestered phrase" (in America we refer to these as parentheticals) in this case is grammatically serving as an adjective, and therefore my use of the article was correct.

I invented the term "sequestered phrase". Just for shiats and giggles. I agree with the original poster, however. Almost always the coloreds doing the criminal activities.

"In 2010 black non-Hispanic males were incarcerated at the rate of 4,347 inmates per 100,000 U.S. residents of the same race and gender. White males were incarcerated at the rate of 678 inmates per 100,000 U.S. residents. Hispanic males were incarcerated at the rate of 1,755 inmates per 100,000 U.S. residents."

Maybe not 95% but you can't argue with numbers, pardner.

It was not the numbers I was arguing with. It is what he asserted that those numbers mean that is wrong. I also took exception to him bringing it up in the first place, as race really has nothing to do with the article in question.

/seconded. People are quick to scream "racist" but look at ANY episode of COPS, you'll see that the majority of people arrested are black. That's not a racist statement, it's a fact.

i frequently have real crime/police/forensics TV on in the background. some of those shows cater to the camera. when COPS comes to town it's always in the bad neighborhoods. the shows where people are set-up to burn using 'bait' cars or fake hookers on the stroll - they don't set up in the land of soccer moms and mini-vans. they go right into tough living high crime areas to make sure they get the footage they want.
