Well, isn't that the point?
How one phrases questions and opinions and even responses to criticism can be very revealing. When someone makes the decision to be argumentative, provocative, even incendiary can also be revealing. "Suicide by cop" is a troubling term. That you chose to use it here, on this Forum, in this particular thread, is revealing.
delicate hothouse flowers of forons, easily offended by thoughts, questions, speech and ideas which might prick their safe ideological cocoon of self-righteousness, who can't seem to lay off attacking me for posing one simple troubling question
Thank you, Meade, for filling that necessary role here. If not you, who? If not now, when?
now that he apparently pulled the trigger of the gun that fired the bullets that killed a local musician you all identify with, now he's a pariah.
Really? I count many posts that directly refute this claim.
I sincerely hope everyone can avoid leaping to conclusions or assigning blame until all the facts are in.
I'm sure everyone here understands that Walter can't come and clear his name even if he desperately wants to, and I suspect he does. I suspect he's going through a terrible time right now.
When the confirmation came that Steve was involved with the shots being fired my heart sank.
What a horrible situation. I feel so bad for everyone involved, and for the victim's family especially. And yeah, for Steve too. I'm sure he is in a mess right now.

Who said anything about discipline? Talk about your hothouse flowers.
