zulius: I wonder what his feeling was for the other recent domestic terrorists...
zedster: Surprise the entirety of her post says something differenthttp://ruthobrien.org/a-day-of-terror/
Tatsuma: Plenty of these idiots posting on Fark already
vernonFL: Of course all Liberals think like this. Libs will side with the terrorists EVERY time.
FlashHarry: that being said, he is an AMERICAN CITIZEN and should be tried in a civilian court and afforded all the rights due to him.
scottydoesntknow: FlashHarry: that being said, he is an AMERICAN CITIZEN and should be tried in a civilian court and afforded all the rights due to him.He is. Just got the newsflash from CNN/local news on my phone.
xanadian: You mis-spelled "coont."
IdBeCrazyIf: Isn't it coming out that he ran his brother over with the stolen SUV? Like cops were subduing the first brother and the second went all bowling for cops and instead missed the spare?
I_C_Weener: Well, if it were the LAPD we'd probably have had 4 more dead civilians, and 30 dead Toyota pickups. And the boat would have been burned to the ground with white phosphorous.
Tatsuma: Yep. Pretty much killed his brother because of it too
IdBeCrazyIf: I think we can just go ahead and chock these two up as insane
Tatsuma: They were not insane but evil. They knew fully well what they were doing.
IdBeCrazyIf: I_C_Weener: Well, if it were the LAPD we'd probably have had 4 more dead civilians, and 30 dead Toyota pickups. And the boat would have been burned to the ground with white phosphorous.Be lucky it wasn't Chicago, when we go full cop crazy we go full cop crazyTatsuma: Yep. Pretty much killed his brother because of it tooI think we can just go ahead and chock these two up as insane
Jument: I'm guessing he is AW'ing or just plain stupid. Nothing I have read suggests that any unnecessary force was used at any time.But really, is there any amount of force that would be unnecessary? They were shooting and throwing bombs at cops. At that point, the tasers and batons get put away and the serious toys come out.
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!'
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.
I_C_Weener: Well, if it were the LAPD we'd probably have had 4 more dead civilians, and 30 dead Toyota pickups. And the boat would have been burned to the ground with white phosphorous.So, you know, I'm going to say that the BPD did alright.And the article is less about excessive force (one line) and about the impact of terrorism in the US on the media and the general population.
skullkrusher: prolly her married name
skullkrusher: /are you serious?
