*Whereas in the U.S.A. the police kill hundreds of people every year. That North American society is observably more dangerous than Western/Northern European society can really only explain part of that.

Where do police officers in the US come from, if not American society?

He should hire Bob McCulloch. He's been known to help out white men with legal problems.

At this point, the best response is just kill ALL of the white/Caucasian people in the US.

Full disclosure; I am White/Caucasian

Please tell me this is sarcasm. If not, I hope you're never let near a gun, knife, or even your own hands.

50% sarcasm 50% serious

Reminder that black people are seen as monsters by the majority of whites and any force against them will always be seen as justified.
True. Don't you think there's a reason for that?

Racism, prejudice, irrational fear, etc.

The elitist continues to disappoint. The silver lining is that this may well be the beginning of the end of Democratic control of the black vote. Only a socialist front can fight against systemic racism and win.

Yeah I definitely was hoping that Obama would call for violence/revolution/disregard for the rule of law.  That was clearly a realistic expectation to put upon the President of the United States.

Obama should issue another executive order.

There's not one he can realistically issue.  The Democrats got upset with Nixon non spending monies that had been budgets and passed a law that basically makes it illegal to not spend money that has been budgeted unless it is impossible to do so.  At most he could issue an order tightening up the standards for distributing arms to local police armies, but there's not anything he can do to stop the process without Congress letting him.

That wasn't meant to be serious...Tongue

My depression has gone from 'worrying' through 'damaging' to 'debilitating'. I tried to kill myself earlier. I couldn't go for my daily bike ride because I cried so hard that I pulled several muscles.
Nathan, I know there is little I can say to alleviate the pain your going through. I am actually on Abilify right now (treating bipolar depression), and while I am not sold 100% on medication as the "end all/be all" treatment, I certainly hope that you can find something to recharge your batteries. You're presence on this forum has helped so many people, and I can't begin to describe just how much we revere and respect you as a person. I have and will continue to keep you in my prayers, because you really are one of the most considerate, kindest, and decent human beings that I have ever encountered, and you don’t deserve to be this miserable. I really, really hope everything starts to get better for you Smiley.


+1000, to all of it.

ST. LOUIS — A grand jury has reached a decision on whether to indict Darren Wilson, the white Ferguson, Mo., police officer whose fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager sparked days of turbulent protests, sources close to the process said.

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon (D) and the county prosecutor’s office are expected to hold news conferences later Monday, and prosecutors have notified the family of Michael Brown — the teen who Wilson killed — that the grand jury’s decision will be announced Monday night, family attorney Benjamin Crump said.

Crump and other sources gave no indication of whether Wilson, 28, will face state charges in the August shooting death of Brown, 18, which triggered a frank conversation about race and police interaction with African Americans.

Immigration was never really an issue I cared much about but policy decisions should not be made by one person.

Well, that's kind of impossible when you have a unitary executive...

In what sense? (The "strong" sense, or the "weak" sense?)
21  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / House Files Lawsuit Against Obama on: November 21, 2014, 11:44:32 am
Quote
House Republicans on Friday filed a long-awaited lawsuit accusing President Barack Obama of overstepping his executive authority when implementing his signature health care law.

And though the suit is centered on the Affordable Care Act, the GOP moved on the legal action the morning after the president announced he will unilaterally grant temporary relief to millions of undocumented immigrants.

"Time after time, the president has chosen to ignore the will of the American people and re-write federal law on his own without a vote of Congress. That's not the way our system of government was designed to work,” House Speaker John Boehner said in a statement. “If this president can get away with making his own laws, future presidents will have the ability to as well. The House has an obligation to stand up for the Constitution, and that is exactly why we are pursuing this course of action."
