    He was suspected of stealing a case of beer from Walmart.  Would your training as an LEO require you to frisk him upon first encounter or after escorting him from the Applebee's?
    This fellow seems to have had a lot of personal issues long before the police officers entered the picture.  Watching the video it appears he may have had a death wish.

    I'm sure that had nothing to do with the fact that the largest economic power in the world (who happens to be located right next door) imposed an economic embargo against Cuba for the last 50 years?

    Except for the fact that it isn't.
    High ranking members of Reagan's administration were charged by an independent council of funding an illegal counter-insurgency in Nicaragua with sales of military weapons to Iran and illegal drug proceeds from Central American dictators.
    Benghazi?
    Still nothing more than a right wing wet dream.

    The most corrupt presidential administration in US history based on legal convictions is Ronald Reagan's. 
    That unenviable title is due in large part to Iran-Contra. 
    The Reagan administration's attempt to destabilize Nicaragua with a CIA organized militia funded with illegal drug money and arm sales to Iran after the US Congress refused to fund the counter insurgency.
    It is a shameful chapter of American history.  However, if those on the right want to clearly show younger Americans how corrupt the GOP's anointed saint is, by all means, bring up Iran Contra once again.

    There is nothing wrong with the above statement. 
    Daniel Ortega led a revolution against an extremely corrupt government that had been controlled by members of the Somoza family since 1936. 
    If you've ever seen interviews with Ortega, he is a very intelligent man who risked his life to topple a government that had lost US funding in 1979 for it's numerous human rights violations.
    At the time of Sander's statement Daniel Ortega was the duly elected president of Nicaragua, not dictator.  Numerous observers from Western Europe and US non-government associated organizations witnessed the election and deemed them fair.

    Local Palestine newspaper has more background on the man killed in the shooting.

    Anyone know why this guy wasn't immediately frisked when he was first apprehended in the bathroom?

    NAFTA on steroids.  Expect even bigger profits for the multinational corporations who'll be shipping jobs overseas and even less employment opportunities for Americans who will be competing against overseas slave labor.
    Bigger profits and better protections for the multinational corporations and why not?  The big banks and manufacturers have paid their own lawyers to write and negotiate this trade agreement.  Meanwhile, our elected representatives in congress have been given limited access to the document and are not allowed to copy and distribute any of its "SECRET" contents to the American public.
    Only corporations and governments will have the ability  to address disputes arising from this agreement.  Unions, environmental organizations and the general public will have no legal standing at these international tribunals.  These tribunals will have the power to override American laws. 
    Hmm, big business and government working together in SECRET undermining out nation's democratic principles.  Smells a lot like fascism to me.

    Trump is intentionally pandering to a specific subset of American conservatives, xenophobes.  Otherwise, he could have just as easily chosen address the issue of immigration without negatively stereotyping Latinos.

    Sen Bernie Sanders has already stated that he will not run as an independent if he loses the democratic primary for president.

    Humans love our symbolism, sports fans know that better than most.
    If the Charleston tragedy turns out to be a catalyst in the removal of a divisive symbol of our past, it will result in a silver lining around an otherwise dark cloud.
    Corporations distancing themselves from the flag may seem like empty symbolism, but their actions will help to relegate a divisive symbol further into the recesses of history where it belongs.
