    Would the general dismissive tone being applied by many to the level of negligence by these officers who placed Gray in their custody be the same if we were talking about a college kid from an affluent school, and a wealthy family somehow ending up with his spine mysteriously severed while in police custody for a minor offense? I have to say I seriously doubt it. It's just atrociously sad all around.

    Probably should have waterboarded you just to be sure.

    Uhh, dude, where did anyone in this thread imply all cops are that way? If discussing the flaws in the way our system mishandles police misconduct, and the affect it directly has on police/public relations is perceived to you as us just saying "omg, all cops are evil, lock them all away!" then perhaps you should rethink things. That is also a god awful comparison btw. Some random drunk or his buddy do not have an entire police force of peers to pat them on the back, or a police union who will steadfastly support them pretty much no matter what. They also don't carry a badge or a gun.
  4. Fear the Walking Dead, Season 2

    Briefly things kind of got interesting, but once it again it all kind of fell apart. Nick has a lot of potential as a character, but it's being pretty much wasted. Chris just needs to be killed off, i feel bad for the actor. He is considerably more annoying than any character in the history of TWD.
  5. Brooklyn Bully? Oh how we miss your posts.
  6. NBA Playoffs Discussion

    It's interesting to see how quickly the Thunder have turned things around. Have to give credit where it is due.

    Charging Nero with second degree intentional assault is where this case went down the tubes really. Reckless endangerment was a bit of a stretch as well perhaps, but negligence was without a doubt a factor as a whole for all officers involved. Nero was there, the other officers likely had more overall involvement. But again, it boils down to basic human rights here. At what point does a police officer not become accountable for himself, and his fellow officers lack of proper care for a civilian placed in their custody? Perhaps when @Inimicus is done anxiously pieing posts he can clarify his feelings on this matter. Regardless, I don't expect charges for any of the officers involved to stick. This has been the trend across the country. If a CMPD officer can empty his clip on an unarmed man merely for approaching him, and walk away free (along with receiving a settlement from the city worth nearly 200k total), there isn't much hope anywhere.
  8. I think there is a lot of selective memory regarding this unfortunately. We definitely have some talent on the DL, but that first Saints game where Luke McCown of all people absolutely tore us apart, only to have Norman end up being the one to seal the W for us should be something to consider as a caution before making claims. I think we can definitely get pressure, but we have to be able to do it more consistently. It's easy to put on the homer shades in May. But come September when the games are actually being played, if our secondary starts getting picked apart, all the patience being preached around here right now is going right out the window. That is for sure.

    That was not merely in reference to Nero. That post and the second one pretty much went together. The pats on the back that he received, and the proceeding statement all but blaming the protestors, and victim from the Fraternal Order of Police only serve to deepen the current divide, and lack of trust that clearly exists between the public, and the police who are entrusted with protecting the public. If you fail to see the systemic issues with this, I don't think there is much for us to discuss.

    If this is the conclusion you came to, then you should read the thread again. Nowhere have I said that this man should be the only one to face consequences. I spoke on this, and the broader issue of police officers not facing punishment for misconduct or for the unnecessary deaths of civilians. This is not an isolated incident. It has been an ongoing problem in our country for years. So who in your opinion should be responsible for the death of this man who was in police custody? In what world would you, myself, or any other regular citizen not expect to be held accountable in the least bit if someone who was placed in our care was somehow mysteriously found dead with their spine severed?
  11. You lousy heathens, don't you know Pat McCrory, and the rest of his cronies are just doing the Lord's work. Can't put a price tag on that.

    20,000 posts later, mostly in the tinderbox, it seems pretty obvious you like to argue.
  13. SF 49ers join fight against HB2

    You sure showed them. What's it like being on the wrong side of just about every social issue?
  14. Freddie Gray

    You don't even bother do deny the rest, lol what a gift to humanity you are g5. Except for the fact that my first two posts in this thread addressed the topic directly. Now I'm sure you're ready to start playing the victim about how everyone else just insults each other, but you're totally above all that (except you're actually not, and engage in the personal attacks just as much as anyone else here). So proceed.

    I'm sure glad we have g5jamz here to stand up for these cops. Of course on the flip side he's the first one to pop in talking about comply or die, and how yet another unarmed civilian pretty much had it coming when they were shot to death.
