    Does "Tuck the Cuck" really bother you that much? It's a stupid joke nickname. I learned it from watching my President. LOL

    Will "Crazy Chris Cuomo" make you feel better?

    certainly room for revision, but unfortunately a lot of time with revision the needle gets pushed too far in the opposite direction. There should be compensation here, just not sure how it should be obtained. Certainly you can't hold the officers liable for doing their job - you'll never get enough people to be police officers if that is the case. Maybe they need some reaction training, because destroying a home seems a bit obsessive (but then, unless this place was a damn mansion, it being worth $580000 seems a bit excessive as well). Not sure why they couldn't put on their Kevlar, break down the door and go get this guy.

    Important to know more about the case. You say the cops were after a shoplifter. But if a shoplifter broke into my house and wouldn't leave, he's no longer a shoplifter. That's break and enter and if he's armed, it's 5 cases of armed kidnapping. Did the cops overreact? Maybe but the issue isn't the cops, it's the criminal who broke into the home.

    It’s amazing to me the rate all these things are happening.
    Confederate statues become all statues.
    Huge corps tripping over themselves to align themselves with a movement, that to me, is more than just about BLM, but about total power and control.
    It’s absolute chaos, and we all know it is, but everyone is terrified of the lunatic mob.

    I have to give them credit, the mob, for pretty much dominating every aspect of modern life in such short order.

    But why are we supposedly okay with this?

    Look at De Blasio in NYC.
    It’s like he literally wants the city to die.
    Every decision he makes seems like a middle finger to the progress made.

    I still do not understand this anything goes mindset.
    Never thought I’d see such wreckage.

    I read up some more afterward - apparently he was armed and on meth. And I was thinking - if he broke into the house, why couldn't the police get in? Ok, they were afraid of getting shot. But with all the drone and infrared technology we have, couldn't they have breached the house at a point opposite where he was (and it was a decent sized house - still not sure if it was worth half a mil, but i'd have to see it without holes in it)? So I'm thinking the door wasn't locked. And, get this - the couple left there left their 9 year old son alone at the time (he got out). But this guy just happened to pick a house with the door unlocked, or was he trying them all until he found one? (and I've seen a street, but not a number, so not sure which house on the street it was - just "4200 block", which does appear to be at the end of the street closest to the Walmart, so that's likely)

    DeBlasio should have already been removed by the governor. Only reason he hasn’t is because he’s obviously down with it and he’s got his own issue of incompetence going on.

    Both have blood on their hands.

    sometimes I wish I had a voice that people would listen to (and I'm not just talking about the Van Halen fan base). I just want to scream "STOP!"

    So "Antebellum" and "Dixie" bring up negative images of slavery? Well, when I was young, there was one word I was taught to never say - a negative slur against a black person it is. And if ANY word in the English language should conjur images of a life in indenture, it is the one. And yet, 5 of the top 10 songs on the Billboard chart right now feature that word. Half of them! (And at least as many feature the word "bitch") Where's the uproar for that? When are we going to outlaw that word? Fucking ridiculous.

    I did see a good one - was it here or on Facebook, I can't even remember any more - if "The Dixie Chicks" are removing "Dixie" from their name because it's racist, shouldn't they also be removing "Chicks" because it is sexist and just call themselves "The"?

    We are not supposedly ok with this Jape. The silent majotity can't do shit until it's time to vote. It's so bad that I fear these are the birth pangs of another civil war or race war. When i say race war or civil, I don't mean we're going to war on battlefields...there will be a lot of violence though. I can envision something like "The Troubles" in Ireland and I'm not being hyperbolic either.

    That guy has to be the worst mayor in the city’s history.
    But there’s been this trend of pretty bad mayors and Governors lately.

    thanks. That's a little different than LM's "they chased a simple shoplifter and blew up a guy's house" narrative.
