Hey Drew, you certainly know how Internet comments can go awry, how about a FARK Party July 16th held near the courthouse? Power of FARK used to attract San Antonio and other Texas FARKers to the courthouse to show support?

Ya know, I wrote a great big ol trolly comment then I realized how terribly tragic this situation really is. Teens are dumb, super dumb. I turn 40 soon and can't even stand listening to young people discuss anything regardless if it's a discussion on how dreamy Chris Brown is or how Albert Camus is talking directly speaking to them.

Being young and growing into adulthood is always difficult, we make so many mistakes, not because we are young but because we want to be adults so bad. We want to transition, we do.

The only way I can figure out how to fix this is to leave white kids alone and concentrate on the blacks. While I have no real thoughts on what leaving white people alone will do, I'm 100% sure locking up more colored people will make the world better.

Why bother spending a moment of interaction with someone who is clearly in possession of Hawkin level intelligence when I will end up ferling bad that I can't compete with sage retorts as "Nana nana boo boo stick you head in doo doo" or "is that your head or did your neck throw up"

I didn't realize this was still a thing. The maddest I ever saw my 75 year old father get at another adult human being was Thanksgiving, 2009 when the talking point was that the Obama's didn't know their place, and my brother in law expounded on that subject for a couple of minutes.

It got very, very ugly very, very quickly. I thought I might have to pull the old guy off him, but I was damn sure gonna let him get there first. You know why? Because my father and I remember the late 60's and early 70's.

Honestly, I do not understand "all the hate" directed towards the First Lady.  Michelle Obama is a very intelligent, beautiful woman who is less politically active than some of the previous first ladies in recent history.  Her cause, childhood obesity is a worthy cause and while uncomfortable for some, it is cause worthy of national attention...

Yeah, I came here to say that. Could it POSSIBLY be that in the teens' cases, they made their "comments" on Facebook, where, no matter how much people want to believe that nobody else could see it, everyone else and my aged grandmother can see it if they want to; while Officer Dickwad made his remarks to a closed room containing a handful of other officers who could evaluate his comments and decide how serious he was?

Nah. It's because cops get to do what they want and kids (especially black kids) are always victims.

To hell with support for that failure of humanity. A person doesn't joke about killing small children. Period. If a person ignores that unwritten rules, and does it anyway, then you don't do it while school shootings and mass shootings are in the news. If you ignore *that* unwritten rule, then you especially don't joke about bathing in their blood and cannibalizing them. To hell with that kid. His fingers wrote a check his ass and mouth can't cash. The only travesty is his bail was set so high. They still shouldn't have locked him up for this long. A psychiatric evaluation would have worked wonders as well. That kid is right in the head at all.

This makes me mad.  It makes me mad enough to kill baby goblins!  Good thing I am a chaotic neutral dwarf fighter because that would not be against my alignment.  Goblins are born evil and should be slain whenever encountered.  I just wish they were worth more XP and had better treasure.  Wading through a goblin nursery and slaying all those little babies (they bite!) is tiring work, and all you wind up with is a handful of copper and if you are lucky a couple silver pieces.  But, it is for betterment of the world.

Yeah, I was nodding my head, feeling bad for teenagers in the internet age being busted and charged with crimes with stuff that in the past would have gotten a stern "I know you did something wrong, but I don't have absolute proof, so don't do anything like that again," to WAT.

The last part may have been a hook to get attention for the post, but the original sentiment I think is quite valid. Youngsters who don't quite understand permanent consequences of what you do on the internet, I shudder when thinking of raising children. I remember being taught to never write anything in a note that I wouldn't want everyone to see. But a written note is something that you can get back and destroy. A horrible post or image exists forever.

It's a brave new world.

The response to Michelle Obama has made me wonder...do Republican mothers not tell kids to eat their vegetables and go play outside?

And now that they are complaining that she is fat, have conservatives stopped complaining that she has muscles?  Or do they complain about both at the same time?
