Apparently these " marshals" were hastily deputized and were guys like corrections officers and other people who were not career marshals.

Two sheriff's deputies, one cop, one jail guard and a real US marshal.
One of them didn't fire their weapon.

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


You have a constitutional right to self defense, so if you reasonably believe your life is in danger, that supersedes the law against discharging of a firearm.

That said, simply having a gun on you, even if you are carrying it illegally, is not grounds to be killed by the police. If it were, the police would be justified in opening fire on all the militia guys, because every state has laws against private militias that make it illegal for private individuals to carry out their own private police/military operations.  You can use a gun to defend your home, but the minute you set up a perimeter around someone else's property "to protect it" you are breaking the law, unless their life is in immediate danger.

Third thing, even if the shooting was a hundred percent legit and self defense on the part of the cops here, and Trump gave no order for them to make the shooting, but is claiming to have done so after the fact, it would be grounds to have any cases against anyone else that may have been working with the victim, thrown out, and it opens the government to civil lawsuits.  

Finally, it is illegal as hell for a president to order the killing of an American, even one who is suspected of committing a crime, so giving such an order, even if it ends up the cops did not follow it, or were unaware that such an order had been given, means the president is guilty of a serious felony, so Trump is in fact claiming he committed murder by giving such an order.

What pisses me off is that every conservative I know is just gonna turn red in the face, and stomp their feet, and angrily claim that the left is protecting murderers and cuddling criminals when any of this is pointed out.  It doesn't matter if the deceased in this case was a murderer.  We have laws and the fact is, if killing someone without judicial action is okay, because they committed a crime, then it was okay for the victim in this case, to have murdered the right wing militia guy, because that guy was also breaking the law at the time.

This used to be something that got the Trumpers/RWNJ's in a full-on derpstorm.

They'd scream about what a tyrant Obama is, because he ordered the killing of an American citizen. . .said citizen had run off, joined Al Qaeda, was on the battlefields of the middle east fighting jihad against America and its allies. . .but when he got blown up in a drone strike, they were SCREAMING about extrajudicial killing and about violating due process rights.  They'd shout about how that's grounds for impeachment, grounds for a revolution against the Federal government, about how that's proof that Obama is a terrible President.

Trump brags about having US Marshalls execute a US citizen, in cold blood, on US soil, simply because they didn't want to arrest him.  They cheer.

Wholly agreed.  There need to be investigations into everything - and those investigations should be held regardless of whether Trump and his people pardon each other or not.  If they don't, charge them or not as appropriate.  If they do?  Complete the investigations anyway, just to shine daylight on it.  This cannot be allowed to stand.

Oh, and any investigations should be wholly public.  No redactions for anything except national security, with redactions that being reviewed and confirmed or denied by a committee comprised of one elected individual chosen by each significant party, one non-partisan individual picked by the House & one by the senate, and one judge picked by SCOTUS.  Everyone needs to be shown as being invested in this.  Everyone.

I don't disagree.
But, the cops regularly kill people.
They killed a kid with a toy gun.
They killed a man with a CCL.
They hurt a man having a diabetic seizure. They insisted he was resisting.
They killed a kid for wearing a mask.
They killed a man for refusing to enter a police vehicle.
They killed women for allegedly being a stash House. (Which is completely different from being a drug den) which means even if she was guilty she wasn't actually facing that much time.
They shot a man for going for his wallet after the officer specifically asked him for identification.
They strangled them in for ceiling cigarettes.
They beat a man for several minutes for DWI animating arrest. Meanwhile they could have just handcuffed them at any time considering how much they had already beat him.
But reasons.

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.

You're upset that US Marshalls gunned downed an armed, suspected murderer, with a prior violent history.  A guy who felt so confident that he wouldn't be arrested by the local cops, that he was giving interviews.

And you believe after three years of successfully evading the FBI's and Mueller Team's attempts to nail him down as a Russian puppet, Trump's going to blithely tell some rando deputized LE dudes, "No arrests - kill on sight!"

I'd ask how stupid all that sounds but, hey, peeing on Russian hookers was a credible story too, right?

[Fark user image image 120x97]


So you're saying president best words is lying? He's the one that bragged about the marshals, who as has been pointed out repeatedly, were deputized before the operation. Trump himself bragged they didn't try to arrest him. Are you saying he's lying because I'm not. I'm going by what Trump, Mr. no more bullshiat himself said.

Are you also saying that you don't believe the evidence, intelligence assessments from US and our allies that the collusion occurred? Despite the report saying it did by Mueller, the republican led senate, the indictments, convictions, plea deals, fines and more? Because only putin and Trump are denying it.

I'll give you a moment to wipe the cheeto jizz of your chin.

And finally in your petulant rant, you complain about sayings, yet we have a lot more actual violent acts by right wing proud boys, racists and Trump supporters than anything done by the left by you ignore direct threats from the right such as Trump encouraging his supporters to beat up protesters including saying he'd pay their legal fees, he encouraged cops to be extra rough when arresting people. But you're putting random comments on web sites on the same level as words from the president.

Long story short, GFY with your BSAB false equivalency. No really, eabod.

Dude, put the FOX News down.

1. "Defund the Police", doesn't mean that anyone wants to completely abolish all law enforcement.  It means reducing funding to police departments and demilitarizing them (removing purely military hardware such as armored vehicles that most police departments should never have under any circumstance), and diverting that funding toward social services so that police can focus on violent crimes, while things like drug addiction, homelessness, and health and welfare checks can be handled by social workers and medical experts.

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.

3. Punch a Nazi is good.  Nazis have shown, repeatedly, for about the last 90 years, that they exploit cultures of tolerance to spread and corrupt people.  They whine about being oppressed, until they're strong enough to be the oppressor.  Even when they're the oppressor, they STILL try to point to others as their enemies to blame all their problems on and claim to be the victim.  There is no such thing as a good Nazi, end of story.  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.

4. The vast majority of leftists and progressives in the country really didn't give a shiat about CHAZ.  It got WAY more coverage on right-wing media than anywhere else, and was basically a short-lived anti-police protest that is now over.  Pretty much nobody saw it as a serious effort or proposal at a long-term replacement for police.  Also, we never heard much in the way of complaints from the residents of that area objecting to it.  They seemed fine with it.

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.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theolympian.com/news/local/crime/article245485220.html


Yeah, that's bullshiat.

Weapon was found in duffel bag in car and one in his pocket.

Official record of the police who investigated and the "marshalls" who engaged him.

So what weapon was he firing?

Did he have some muscle spasms as he was dying and lauch rifle into sealed duffle bag into car and then shove weapon back into pocket?

I'm glad you are up to date on the official investigation.  Makes you look real smart when you use arguments made by conspiracy theorists.

It also shows how up to date you are on every other thing you have an opinion on and should be taken seriously in every thread.

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

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.

Thanks West Virginia for saving taxpayer dollars by realising that you can't teach a turnip and ending this perambulating potato's education in 3rd Grade.

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.

And you believe after three years of successfully evading the FBI's and Mueller Team's attempts to nail him down as a Russian puppet, Trump's going to blithely tell some rando deputized LE dudes, "No arrests - kill on sight!"

I'd ask how stupid all that sounds but, hey, peeing on Russian hookers was a credible story too, right?

Honestly I doubt that Trump actually had anything to do with this from the getgo outside of maybe telling Barr that he wants it taken care of and maybe barr dealt with it or put it to a lackey, but Trump wants to sound like a tough guy as if he ordered it.

So what?  That's been SOP for a while now, after Antifa-supporting politicians explicitly refused to allow local LE to do their jobs.

Trump himself bragged they didn't try to arrest him. Are you saying he's lying because I'm not. I'm going by what Trump, Mr. no more bullshiat himself said.

Who are "they"?  You assume he meant the marshals.  I assume he meant local LE.  You know why?  Because local LE already has a past history of not arresting Antifa felons.  See local political direction above.

Are you also saying that you don't believe the evidence, intelligence assessments from US and our allies that the collusion occurred? Despite the report saying it did by Mueller, the republican led senate, the indictments, convictions, plea deals, fines and more? Because only putin and Trump are denying it.

Bunny, your multi-year, multi-agency investigation ended with "Well, we didn't find anything that was illegal, but that doesn't mean he's exonerated."  It's time to move to Stage 5.

And finally in your petulant rant, you complain about sayings, yet we have a lot more actual violent acts by right wing proud boys, racists and Trump supporters than anything done by the left by you ignore direct threats from the right such as Trump encouraging his supporters to beat up protesters including saying he'd pay their legal fees, he encouraged cops to be extra rough when arresting people. But you're putting random comments on web sites on the same level as words from the president.

You typed that with a straight face?  How many months has Antifa/BLM been burning and looting across the country?  Point out on a map where Da Proud Boyz established "Autonomous Zones" where vigilante justice reigns supreme.  And who's been implementing catch-and-release with Antifa terrorists?  Isn't all of that what directly led to the Feds deputizing other agencies?  You're not very good at this.

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.

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.

I thought we had due process?

As far as the constitution is concerned he is not guilty because he never had a trial, never had the opportunity to defend himself or confront his accuser.

It's funny that you say that while commenting on this person's post, because if you look at any said persons posts in threads where the right wing rally around them (see: st. Louis dumbass lawyers, rittenhouse, Georgia guys that shot jogger) you'll find them saying that we can't call them murderers or say they did anything illegal since they haven't been tried yet in a court of law and found guilty.

But you come into threads where one of the people killed is their own and it's "murderer this, murderer that."

We have laws, we have constitutional rights.  The partisan hackery is on one side.  Reonhoel is probably a murderer.  We will never know though.  And this is why people are protesting.  It isn't the police job to mete out justice, it is their job to bring those people in to get judged in a court of law.  It is our constitutional rights.

So if we want to be fair and balanced ™ in this situation and actually act like the right does....

As far as reinhoel's victim goes we will treat it the same as they've treated the minorities killed by police "don't start none if you don't want none."  He was driving around macing people and shooting them with paintballs.

Does that actually deserve to be killed?  Fark no.  But here we are.  It'a the defense of every single person who has killed someone on the left from the right.  So I'm just being fair here.

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.

And yet Kyle Rittenhouse lives. As does Dylan roof. Shiatbags or not, we have laws and vigilante justice has no place. Funny how your diatribe ignores that.

I'm sorry, when did enlightened progressives suddenly care about laws?  Stop me if these popular catch phrases sound like what people who support anything other than the Law of the Jungle would say: "Defund the Police" "ACAB" "Punch a Nazi" "Welcome to CHAZ, pay your protection fee".

You're upset that US Marshalls gunned downed an armed, suspected murderer, with a prior violent history.  A guy who felt so confident that he wouldn't be arrested by the local cops, that he was giving interviews.

And you believe after three years of successfully evading the FBI's and Mueller Team's attempts to nail him down as a Russian puppet, Trump's going to blithely tell some rando deputized LE dudes, "No arrests - kill on sight!"

I'd ask how stupid all that sounds but, hey, peeing on Russian hookers was a credible story too, right?

The derp is strong with this one.  Progressives care about laws.  Mainly what we want is for them to be applied equally and with equal force.

We also want to improve the laws based on societal learnings so we can avoid systemic problems that lead to undesirable outcomes.  For example, treating drug problems versus having police beat / shoot drug addicts then locking them away never addressing the underlying issue.

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.

You have a constitutional right to self defense, so if you reasonably believe your life is in danger, that supersedes the law against discharging of a firearm.

That said, simply having a gun on you, even if you are carrying it illegally, is not grounds to be killed by the police. If it were, the police would be justified in opening fire on all the militia guys, because every state has laws against private militias that make it illegal for private individuals to carry out their own private police/military operations.  You can use a gun to defend your home, but the minute you set up a perimeter around someone else's property "to protect it" you are breaking the law, unless their life is in immediate danger.

Third thing, even if the shooting was a hundred percent legit and self defense on the part of the cops here, and Trump gave no order for them to make the shooting, but is claiming to have done so after the fact, it would be grounds to have any cases against anyone else that may have been working with the victim, thrown out, and it opens the government to civil lawsuits.  

Finally, it is illegal as hell for a president to order the killing of an American, even one who is suspected of committing a crime, so giving such an order, even if it ends up the cops did not follow it, or were unaware that such an order had been given, means the president is guilty of a serious felony, so Trump is in fact claiming he committed murder by giving such an order.

Totally the same.  No differences in those at.

Don't get me wrong.  Obama's drone program was appalling and he should be held to account for it, just like Bush and just like Trump (drone strike tempo is actually higher under Trump than Obama), but your false equivalences are false.

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.

And I would say that white liberals want is left the Law & Order as Republicans see it, and more actual justice.

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.

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...

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.

However, I'm disappointed that Lieu and Rice, both of whom were elected in 2014, didn't call for investigating Obama's extrajudicial murders of Americans, specifically Anwar Al-Awlaki and his kid, who Obama had killed by drones.  Trump whines about "Obamagate", while ignoring those murders, and the whole GOP whined about Benghazi, while not impeaching Obama for his unconstitutional war against Libya.  (Politically, the latter move was effective; it helped their then-future candidate beat Hillary, even though they kept finding nothing.)

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.

Until it's not.
Selective prosecution.
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.

cretinbob is talking about when the marshals chose to execute him on the spot instead of arresting him


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.

Makes you wonder why that is.

The professionals couldn't be counted on to carry out the extra judicial execution?

Two sheriff's deputies, one cop, one jail guard and a real US marshal.
One of them didn't fire their weapon.
Guess which one.
Go ahead, guess.

So you're saying president best words is lying? He's the one that bragged about the marshals, who as has been pointed out repeatedly, were deputized before the operation.


So what?  That's been SOP for a while now, after Antifa-supporting politicians explicitly refused to allow local LE to do their jobs.

Trump himself bragged they didn't try to arrest him. Are you saying he's lying because I'm not. I'm going by what Trump, Mr. no more bullshiat himself said.

Who are "they"?  You assume he meant the marshals.  I assume he meant local LE.  You know why?  Because local LE already has a past history of not arresting Antifa felons.  See local political direction above.

Are you also saying that you don't believe the evidence, intelligence assessments from US and our allies that the collusion occurred? Despite the report saying it did by Mueller, the republican led senate, the indictments, convictions, plea deals, fines and more? Because only putin and Trump are denying it.

Bunny, your multi-year, multi-agency investigation ended with "Well, we didn't find anything that was illegal, but that doesn't mean he's exonerated."  It's time to move to Stage 5.

I'll give you a moment to wipe the cheeto jizz of your chin.

And finally in your petulant rant, you complain about sayings, yet we have a lot more actual violent acts by right wing proud boys, racists and Trump supporters than anything done by the left by you ignore direct threats from the right such as Trump encouraging his supporters to beat up protesters including saying he'd pay their legal fees, he encouraged cops to be extra rough when arresting people. But you're putting random comments on web sites on the same level as words from the preside
nt.

You typed that with a straight face?  How many months has Antifa/BLM been burning and looting across the country?  Point out on a map where Da Proud Boyz established "Autonomous Zones" where vigilante justice reigns supreme.  And who's been implementing catch-and-release with Antifa terrorists?  Isn't all of that what directly led to the Feds deputizing other agencies?  You're not very good at this.

Long story short, GFY with your BSAB false equivalency. No really, eabod.

No BSAB here.  Just one.  The side burning the country down.

Invisible Obama: Prussian_Roulette: I'm sorry, when did enlightened progressives suddenly care about laws?  Stop me if these popular catch phrases sound like what people who support anything other than the Law of the Jungle would say: "Defund the Police" "ACAB" "Punch a Nazi" "Welcome to CHAZ, pay your protection fee".

Dude, put the FOX News down.

1. "Defund the Police", doesn't mean that anyone wants to completely abolish all law enforcement.  It means reducing funding to police departments and demilitarizing them (removing purely military hardware such as armored vehicles that most police departments should never have under any circumstance), and diverting that funding toward social services so that police can focus on violent crimes, while things like drug addiction, homelessness, and health and welfare checks can be handled by social workers and medical experts.

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.

3. Punch a Nazi is good.  Nazis have shown, repeatedly, for about the last 90 years, that they exploit cultures of tolerance to spread and corrupt people.  They whine about being oppressed, until they're strong enough to be the oppressor.  Even when they're the oppressor, they STILL try to point to others as their enemies to blame all their problems on and claim to be the victim.  There is no such thing as a good Nazi, end of story.  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.

4. The vast majority of leftists and progressives in the country really didn't give a shiat about CHAZ.  It got WAY more coverage on right-wing media than anywhere else, and was basically a short-lived anti-police protest that is now over.  Pretty much nobody saw it as a serious effort or proposal at a long-term replacement for police.  Also, we never heard much in the way of complaints from the residents of that area objecting to it.  They seemed fine with it.


bro you had me for the first two, but I still maintain as I always have that punching someone for saying words is wrong, period. especially since farkers tend to be overly liberal (no pun intended) in labeling folks as nazis. 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, and then using such a label as license for physical violence. if you're not for the first amendment protecting the most abhorrent speech, you're not for the first amendment. I also like how for your last point you both cite no sources and just speak for all those people assertively

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...

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.

Wow, it sounds like both sides are bad, huh.


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.

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.
