Re: Bernie Sanders Questions Betsy DeVos

That's not how I remember it. I could have sworn she said "No, I am like you. I love the people and the popular music. I am friend."

Re: Koval's dangerous gambit just blew up in Madison's face

Actually I've watched several. I've known five officers, a couple of them and I were close. That was years ago. And now I'm backing out. I don't want to be on the wrong side here. I've had jobs where I've been treated badly for months or years and one day just blew the hell up. Not violently but I b...

Re: Koval's dangerous gambit just blew up in Madison's face

I know no one's going to agree with me on this, but they're right. Whatever she did, she could have been taken into custody without beating the living crap out of her. The cops are held to a higher standard and they went way under the bar. And they DID beat the fuck out of her, regardless of what al...

Re: The Hillary Clinton for President Thread

Congressman Glenn Grothman: Photo ID voting will help us defeat Hillary. "Well, I think Hillary's the weakest candidate the Dems have ever put up, and now we have photo ID! I think photo ID is going to make a bit of a difference as well." So there we have it. It's there to help win electio...

Re: Wouldn't it be great if everybody had a gun?

Australia, for instance? What's the matter? Are you guys afraid to take the "Gentle Man's no-cherry picking challenge?" Of course you are. I can understand why you'd want to steer WAY clear of Australia when we're talking about mass shootings. Way, waaaay clear. You'd rather talk about Ch...

Re: Koval's dangerous gambit just blew up in Madison's face

Aside from that, am I the only one who wishes that 400 grand had been spent on body cameras? I suspect we'd get more out of that than we will out of the study. Which will likely tell us that we ought to invest in body cameras. I would now rather have the study. I want those guys under the microscop...

Okay, I give.

We should beat the living fuck out of everyone who resists arrest.

Re: Koval's dangerous gambit just blew up in Madison's face

The victim of a crime, no matter how she behaves, does not deserve to be treated that way. Do you mean the perpetrator of a crime? She was brandishing a knife in public and making death threats to mall staff (unless you think witnesses are lying) because she thought someone had stolen her phone. I ...

Re: Chief Koval strikes back

So, supposedly it is beyond my comprehension that "those in power could retaliate?" Well, first off, who is in power? Aren't both sides? Yes, a chief presumably has at least some of the resources of the department at his or her disposal. But, the city council controls that department's bu...

Re: Koval's dangerous gambit just blew up in Madison's face

Not really sure what Koval has to do with this. I doubt the officers were playing out Koval standing up for them at the City Council meeting when they were taking her down. Good point. The Chief of Police isn't responsible at all for the way the officers under his command behave. I take back every ...

Re: Guns may be allowed in campus buildings

http://uwpd.wisc.edu/staying-safe/active-shooter/ I'm glad the UW new-age decency council spent time prepping students how deal with a shootout. I’m surprised they weren’t mocked by the usual suspects for “prepping,” because everyone else who preps is mocked in the trickle down media. Nope, no mock...

Re: 97% Scientist Consensus: global warming is man-made

That pound sand part makes me think you won't clarify but I have to ask anyway. Is it your belief that previous climate changes were not catastrophic? I apologize for the pound sand part, I was getting to the testy end of my rope. Neither the Medieval Warm Period, nor the Little Ice Age was catastr...
