So the marshal deputies give conflicting accounts.

Rights can be (and often are) revoked if you're convicted of a felony. Felons cannot vote in most states not carry guns. It's not right, and definitely not grounds for extrajudicial murder [read: execution]... especially if the suspect's gun was not being brandished at the time.

Blathering Idjut: Prussian_Roulette:

I'm sorry, when did enlightened progressives suddenly care about laws?

Adorable.

Opaque conservatives support a president who randomly spits the phrase "LAW & ORDER" like he's suffering from some form of political Tourette's.

"Law & order" used to be a phrase that included the entirety of the U.S. Justice system where the accused would be arrested, get a fair trial, sometimes with a jury of his/ her peers followed by the justice of society leveled on that person if found guilty.

It doesn't include short-circuiting the system by administering violent street justice behind a badge (or a Proud Boy t-shirt,) or interfering in said system by installing a mouth-breathing toady as AG to the point of said toady interjecting himself into the justice system to protect the president, his friends and confidants.

There is no legitimate description of the incident around Reinoehl's death that justifies his execution.  At BEST cops involved should have been immediately suspended.

Folks in Portland, even the same folks who have take to the streets for months in support of BLM, would have preferred a fair and open trial with the likelihood he would be sent to prison.  Such a trial would've had the benefit of publicly reviewing not just Reinoehl's actions, but the actions of the fascist who came to Portland looking to incite violence and the others like him.

Liberals are the ones that want a return to law and order.  Conservatives just want vigilantism.

Because the allegations are bogus and intended solely to sling mud at the President during the election campaign.  Please keep up with the rest of the class.


Ladies and gentlemen, evidence of the two divergent realities in which people live.

In one reality the "marshalls" boxed in a car and shot the guy inside immediately before they even identified as LEO. The victim was fleeing law enforcement after shooting a right wing thug in self defense. He was fearful of his life, and rightly so. The evil so called marshals.comitted an extra judicial killing and they bong in jail, as does Bill bar and trump for ordering it.

In the other reality, the violent crimeinal evil dirt against fired an AR-15 at Leo after bragging online that he had killed and would happily kill these defenders of freedom again. The valiant Marshall's had no choice but to shoot him, and are heros deserving only praise for making America safer. The evil.left is trying to twist this to attack the brave and strong president.

Somewhere in there is an objective truth. But one side of the political spectrum has been using naked probiganda and... wait which side people think is doing that also depends on which reality stream they are living in.

I would actually amend that to say that what liberals want is Justice. The term law and order has been corrupted by the right to support a system of Oppression, whereby they can induce whatever laws they want in order to hold down certain minorities other groups they find on desirable, unjustly prosecute them in the name of Law & Order.

And I would say that white liberals want is left the Law & Order as Republicans see it, and more actual justice. As In, Those who commit True Crimes face the consequences, hi to people are being sent to jail for a gram of marijuana in their pocket, black kids arent getting arrested in school for mouthing off the teachers, and people accused of crimes against certain protected classes with right-wing thugs aren't being murdered in the street by law enforcement

splelps: austerity101: splelps: austerity101: splelps: PunGent: splelps: I would argue that it's a stretch too far to call anyone not occupying or vying for public office (or in any other way attempting to gain real power) a nazi based off words and no action,

Counterpoint:  spewing Nazi propaganda helps Nazis, even if the spewer doesn't seek power himself.

bro that's a bad counterpoint because first of all, how? second, who gets to decide what nazi propaganda is? third, still doesn't justify physical violence. I mean take all the farkers who go on and on about Obama having "no real controversies" or some shiat like that, how many punches do they deserve in light of this drone strike business someone just mentioned? I would still say zero, but if you would too then that would be what we call a double standard

Exactly what Nazi propaganda are you willing to defend as not actually being Nazi propaganda?  Show your work.

I'm not gonna let that shiat attempt to frame this your way slide. if something has been posted in the comments for this article that you or someone else has attempted to label as nazi propaganda, I'd be happy to take a look and offer my perspective (as another nobody commenter) on whether or not I believe it to be nazi propaganda. but as far as I can tell that hasn't happened yet

You are the one who brought it up, jackass.

the other thing I love is how polite everyone is here. but that's irrelevant. if you simply look at the posts YOU have just included in yours as quotes, you would see that I was not the one to bring up nazi propaganda


I quote:

"I would argue that it's a stretch too far to call anyone not occupying or vying for public office (or in any other way attempting to gain real power) a nazi based off words and no action[.]"

You were the one who brought up Nazi speech.  What Nazis say is referred to as Nazi propaganda, because that's what it is.  So if you want to argue that what Nazis say isn't Nazi propaganda, have at it.

Oh, and fark your tone-policing, snowflake.

Discharging a weapon in the city is against the law. But, seldom does self-defense shootings get charged with discharging a weapon.

You're thinking of the incident where he shot the maggot.

Thanks Marshalls for saving tax dollars on booking, processing, jail, trial, etc.  Don't worry I am sure some body cam footage will show the antifaTHER was in the wrong.


If there was body cam footage thay exonerated the murderers, we would have seen it already.

JFC. You can't be that dense. In order to leap to that you have to completely ignore AUMF. Which exists and pretty much explicitly covers OBL. So no, enemies of the US that have declared war and propagated war like attacks against the US and are not US citizens tend not to get afforded some rights. Nor do Americans that cooperate and complicit with enemies and are operating as an enemy of the US in foreign lands.

No, you missed the point. It sounds like the other side is bad no matter what. But, I've got my sympathies for sure, with the side that doesn't cheer when LEO kills a guy who is under arrest. BSAB is jsut an excuse people use to tolerate the terribleness on their own sides, usually by the right.

strathmeyer: orbister: President Obama and VP Clinton sent a death squad to kill someone for political advantage. It's ugly and unacceptable when Putin does it and it was ugly and unacceptable when they did it.

The decision to use a fake medical team as cover, which has undoubtedly cost thousands for further lives (mostly children) only compounded the iniquity

At least you agree we should punish leaders for their murders.


Absolutely. I would love to see Tony Blair tried for war crimes and if Donald Trump ordered a killing in this case he should undoubtedly be charged with murder.

Anything for ratings, anything for attention. It's incredible the damage this imbecile has done to the Presidency. But I'm glad he's too stupid to get anything right. The more he talks it seems more likely that people want to walk away from him.

This is absolutely not against you, but I really hate this quibbling over who is and isn't a Nazi.  The number of times in my life I've seen someone called a Nazi who didn't at all even slightly deserve it I can count on one hand.  Except for "feminazi," because that was a thing for a long-ass time and it was always stupid and misogynistic and deliberately dishonest.  But actually calling someone a "Nazi"?  This isn't something that I've seen people just throw casually around like it doesn't matter.  People have certainly been calling people Nazis more in the last few years than I've ever seen people do it before, but that's because more people are unabashedly acting like Nazis, not because we're playing too fast and loose with the word.

If you find yourself taking exception to someone being called a Nazi, you're probably a Nazi yourself, or you're damn close enough that we might as well call you that.  People who help and collaborate with Nazis are Nazis.  Everyone else knows exactly what's being said and why.

Chad Smith and Chase Cutler, who were working on cars nearby Thursday, said an unmarked SUV had been parked on School Street for a while when that SUV and another converged on a man in a vehicle at the apartment complex. Smith and Cutler moved onto a grassy area about 50 yards away to watch what was happening.

The man got out of his vehicle and began to fire what they believe was an assault rifle at the SUVs. They said they heard 40 or 50 shots, then officers returned fire, hitting the man.

"It reminded me of a video game," Cutler said.

If you've seen the pics of his car, it's clear that M. Reinohl never made it out of the vehicle. I'm sure someone else here has pointed out that the rounds fired by the "marshals" that struck the car were aimed head-level at the front windshield. I mean, the pictures of the car alone practically prove this was a hit. Trump is nothing more than a real-world B movie mobster. And that is frightening as hell.

Peter von Nostrand: Prussian_Roulette: Invisible Obama: Prussian_Roulette:

Dude, put the FOX News down.

I'll keep this short, since I don't know what the Fark "wall of text" limiters are...

1. "Defund the Police", doesn't mean that anyone wants to completely abolish all law enforcement.

It's literally the first quote on the Defund the Police website: "Abolishing the police does not mean the abolishing of community safety."  People are explicitly advocating for it, and not on Qanon.  Even members of Congress have openly called for it.

2. "ACAB" is a short acronym or slogan that is an indictment of modern American law enforcement culture, of the idea that there's pervasive racism in American policing and a strong "us vs. them" atmosphere where police now see themselves more as an occupying army rather than members of the community there to help people, and they have no problem lying, deceiving, or misleading everyday people if it helps them get more arrests, rather than helping people and helping the community.

Well, "ALL cops are bad" certainly does establish an "us vs them" culture, doesn't it?  In fact, if ALL cops are bad, then how do you justify NOT abolishing the police?

3. Punch a Nazi is good...Letting them walk around and spread their ideology is sewing ideological poison, spreading toxic memes like an infectious mental virus. . .the only proper response to Nazis is swift and overwhelming force.

I can't put my finger on why you're not convincing me you have the moral high ground here - oh, wait...

[Fark user image image 212x256]

4. The vast majority of leftists and progressives in the country really didn't give a shiat about CHAZ....  Also, we never heard much in the way of complaints from the residents of that area objecting to it.  They seemed fine with it.

They did, huh?  Then I guess they're not worried about their Yelp ratings, either.

Laura Ingraham giving Trump a nazi salute at the 2016 RNC. It was not condemned by any Republicans. So, if the nazi shoe fits, Republicans should get used to wearing it.

The 22 political murders committed by left-wing offenders from late 1919 to mid-1922 led to 38 convictions, including 10 executions and prison sentences averaging 15 years.

By contrast, the 354 political murders committed by right-wing offenders in the same period led to 24 convictions, no executions at all, and an average sentence of 4 months, with 34 right-wing murderers who confessed to their crimes were actually acquitted by the courts.

Peter von Nostrand: FarkQued: Ishkur: orbister: Two politicians watching an extrajudicial execution they ordered:

Osama's not American.

two points you are making...
1) Its ok to kill proven evil murderers...
2) Only citizens of a country have rights in same country...

JFC. You can't be that dense. In order to leap to that you have to completely ignore AUMF. Which exists and pretty much explicitly covers OBL. So no, enemies of the US that have declared war and propagated war like attacks against the US and are not US citizens tend not to get afforded some rights. Nor do Americans that cooperate and complicit with enemies and are operating as an enemy of the US in foreign lands.


So what would you call war like attacks?
1) Burning down city blocks, destroying businesses and endangering innocent people?
2) Threatening and killing police officers, law enforcement, duly elected government officials?
3) Tearing down historic markers and statues?
4) Creating no go zones within a city, void of rule of law and government authority?
5) Murders, rapes, in same no go zones?
6) Attempting and succeeding to destroy public government buildings, offices?

I am not excusing injustice, bad people doing illegal actions should be arrested and tried and punished no matter whom, through law enforcement and adjudication.

I am also not excusing rioters to be free from same laws and rules because of injustice concerns.  Two wrongs do not make a right.

Most of the arguments I see on these boards are so insular and biased that there is no ability to even see the whole picture.  Any attempt to present a different perspective is akin to resisting authoritarianism.  Those touting Diversity seek only to celebrate those flavors of diversity they choose.

I have to say this. No one ever does and I will say this once at least. There needs to be an exception to the victims..the victims he raped. He did more than touch them and hopefully not all are dead or are corrupted.

cretinbob: easier to post links from PC

So the marshal deputies give conflicting accounts.
The guy did have a gun in his pocket.
I have been assured that carrying a gun is an inalienable right and not at all illegal.


What does the marshall who is a real marshall and not the "deputized" ones say?

RottenEggs: Yeah , but that was just a show . It never really happened  . Although the mainstream media didn't have much to say about it this week . Those that did just tried to spin it off .
