    Sometimes media and fans put WAY too much stock in preseason games.  Dont get too excited or worried about preseason.  It is a another ballgame 2 weeks from now.

    Black Lives Matter tweeted this 3 days ago.  I wonder if it will shift some minority support to Bernie.  Probably not, but does call into question her real commitment to criminal justice reform

    Not a bad idea, but as PoundCat said, the NRA will sell thhat as the Orwellian government tracking you and always knowing your gun's whereabouts.  They will also claim something like that would only lead eventually to confiscation 
    It would not go very far.  But I do think that (or something similar) is a good idea.

    I do agree with you here.  And it is a difficult job, and I admire most of their work and do not envy their jobs.
    That is part of the reason I want them to change the way they engage certain non-violent suspects and take laws like marijuana and drug abuse off their books.   I believe it will keep more people alive, and help law enforcement avoid some confrontations and keep them safer as well.
    I dont want cops or civilians shot.  It sucks.

    You may be right, but out of the @8,000 people killed by police from 2004-2011 only 41 cops were charged for murder or manslaughter, or about 0.5%   Not convicted, but charged.  Admittedly, part of the reason is because a large majority of shootings are likely indeed justified, but it is also because Law Enforcement has preferential treatment of investigations because of LEBOR, are often investigating themselves, and tend to favor their own over a civilian.
    They also have much lower conviction rates than civilians and lighter sentences.
    Police rarely get charged for misconduct, vast majority of complaints go nowhere, if they do get charged they rarely get convicted, and if they do get convicted they get lighter sentences.  So they can kill or abuse power with virtual impunity.
    If Black Lives Matters does nothing else it has helped bring these issues to light and have people conscious of these abuses and lack of consequences for tragic events.

    Sometimes they get pulled for just making eye contact with a police officer, so.... no

    It's Happening
     "Liberal revolutionary Bernie Sanders, riding an updraft of insurgent passion in Iowa, has closed to within 7 points of Hillary Clinton in the Democratic presidential race.
    She's the first choice of 37 percent of likely Democratic caucusgoers; he's the pick for 30 percent, according to a new Des Moines Register/Bloomberg Politics Iowa Poll.
    But Clinton has lost a third of her supporters since May, a trajectory that if sustained puts her at risk of losing again in Iowa, the initial crucible in the presidential nominating contest."

    When you take into consideration that black people are 3x more likely to be searched in a traffic stop likely leading to equally disproportional arrests (like 3 weeks ago when Texas cops searched a woman's vagina in Texas for weed, to no avail) what evidence do you have that suggests black people smoke weed in their cars more than white people?
    Almost every friend I had back in the day no matter which race, that smoked weed would do it in their car while driving.  That is anecdotal though.

     What is your basis for saying that black people smoke weed in their car and white people do not?

    At least Republicans have found a tragedy they can politicize, unlike 3 days ago when it was a travesty
