zedster: Surprise the entirety of her post says something differenthttp://ruthobrien.org/a-day-of-terror/
Tatsuma: skullkrusher: prolly her married nameAw crap. You might be right.skullkrusher: /are you serious?Of course I am, do we really need another Jewish-American professor at a liberal University saying something really farking stupid?I say 'Oy, fark no'
Tatsuma: Plenty of these idiots posting on Fark already
Silly Jesus: 1. The police didn't kill him, his brother did.2. Many of the injuries were self inflicted by a bomb that he made and detonated.3. The injury to his side may have been a medical procedure.Even if those things weren't the case, you would still be an idiot.
skullkrusher: my heart didn't sink when her mick name wasn't revealed and we've done plenty of stupid shiat over the years
slayer199: Really?I'm usually one to jump all over abuse of force...but in this case, they were wanted for a bombing that killed 3 innocent individuals and wounded or maimed over 100 more. They killed a cop, they carjacked another individual...and led police on a chase. They were clearly armed and dangerous. Terrorism or not, the use of force was in this case was completely justified.
GalFriday: Subby, you left the "T" out of the C word, Buddy!
Tatsuma: Ned Stark: They shut down an entire city and called out the farking national guard for a teenager with a pistol and some tubesocks full of gunpowder. Yes force was excessive. Everyone involved should be embarrassed.The stupidest post? This is it.
Tatsuma: skullkrusher: my heart didn't sink when her mick name wasn't revealed and we've done plenty of stupid shiat over the yearsThere's not a long history of Irishmen saying stupid bleeding heart things in Academia in America.What if it was a story about a drunken, pantless man stumbling in front of Michelle Obama and asking her to pull his finger, and found out his name was O'Brien, I bet you'd feel differently wouldn't ya?
ha-ha-guy: This is the first time the ownership of those Bearcat things has been justifiable by the PD for a long while. They actually make a case for being useful when hunting the IED brothers.
zulius: I wonder what his feeling was for the other recent domestic terrorists...
vernonFL: Of course all Liberals think like this. Libs will side with the terrorists EVERY time.
Zasteva: vernonFL: Of course all Liberals think like this. Libs will side with the terrorists EVERY time.Well, at least the ones you build of straw will. I'm one of those Libby-Libs and I think they used appropriate force.But have fun playing with your straw libs!
skullkrusher: in that case it would be my uncle and I'm probably biased
randomjsa: First, MSNBC saying the fact that they were Muslims "doesn't matter"
Tatsuma: skullkrusher: in that case it would be my uncle and I'm probably biasedFair enoughNow I wish that it did happen, cause I want that video. And see the follow-up tasering
Silverstaff: [i.imgur.com image 634x356]"The use of excessive force in the apprehension of the Tsarnaev brothers has been approved"
Tatsuma: City University of New York Professor RuthI immediately went 'Please not a Jew please not a JewO'BrienScore!While terrorism is about causing fear - again an emotion - we do have to account for our conduct in these extreme times when adrenaline is running high.At my home, to at least offset this, we turn off all media. I couldn't believe my sons' explanation when they got home about one brother running over the other one. So I found a place to read about this, and I recoiled after seeing the picture. Still, we all know that terrorism, like crime, "leads if it bleeds" with the established media. The established media fixates on the domestic-violence or crime-of-passion aspect of terrorism, and it, too, inculcates more fear in all of us.What an idiot. 'I didn't follow the news or everything that happened, but clearly the police used too much force!'
neversubmit: Too much force and you'll end up with Trek Wars[rack.0.mshcdn.com image 600x400]Seems cool at first but no one knows how it will turn out.
Katolu: Zasteva: vernonFL: Of course all Liberals think like this. Libs will side with the terrorists EVERY time.Well, at least the ones you build of straw will. I'm one of those Libby-Libs and I think they used appropriate force.But have fun playing with your straw libs!Your snark meter needs calibrating.
FlashHarry: so-called "liberal" here. i think the force used was appropriate. the guy was carrying shiatloads of weapons and IEDs.that being said, he is an AMERICAN CITIZEN and should be tried in a civilian court and afforded all the rights due to him.
DeathCipris: ha-ha-guy: This is the first time the ownership of those Bearcat things has been justifiable by the PD for a long while. They actually make a case for being useful when hunting the IED brothers.Pardon my ignorance, but what is a "Bearcat thing"?
WelldeadLink: The "too much force" argument from someone whose life was not on the line trying to capture the guy.Swordsman on the street? You want the Musketeer Squad to come and parry him into submission? Hell, no, they're Musketeers because they have guns -- they'll shoot the swordsman so they can safely go home to the wife and kids at the end of the shift. If I'm chasing a gunman on foot, I want to do it in an armored giant robot. With precision rockets and frickin' lasers on my head.
sweatybronson: Read the original blogpost - that woman is all over the place. She starts with three poorly written paragraphs about bad things happening on and near her birthday, before talking about what I suppose she thinks she is talking about, which is the brothers and the excessive use of force that she somehow assumes happened after seeing the mortuary pictures of the older brother.Then she's talking randomly about the fact that they're immigrants?Huh?She'd get a 7 on her SAT essay score.
