This is another cut and dry case to me (if proven true) in that you have typical hood type of male, armed, thugging on streets, criminal record, hurting others, then encounters trained officer who blows them away into the next world.
I actually like that, and not sure why the very people this fella victimized (black folks) are the ones who cry foul.
Thugs and street goons victimize mainly other 'blacks'/minorities, cause that's who they live around geographically.
To me, Officer did society a favor by blowing this clown, dangerous clown, into the next world.
As long as the shooting is justified, I don't cry.
But unlike many fake Fox news types, I'm able to distinquish each story case by case.
Now if Officer shoots unarmed black youth reaching for sandwich, then ye, I'll come out on the side of victim.
But if officer blows away thug who just seems to be alive only to victimize others, than I applaud cops for removing danger from the Earth.

I think it was a dumb Idea for Sony Pictures to release movie about assignation of N-Korean State leader
Personally I think it's in poor taste to release box office movie depicting the assassination of any active, current serving Nation State member or leader.
Ye ye ye...free speech and all, but I still think it's in very poor taste, and is why the rest of the world often looks at the West or Hollywood with such disdain.
I don't think China, Russia or America or Japan or France or Saudi Arabia or Iran or any other nation would like seeing they're current President or leader 'assassinated' in a movie, fiction or not it's in very poor taste.
With 'freedom' should also come a bit of responsibility and maturity and common sense.
And if war breaks out because of this film, most in Hollywood, Hollywood types would be the first to cower and run and hide, and the last ones to defend nation against attack.
Todays Hollywood types are cowards, and usually protest the military instead of support it like Bob Hope and other celebrities did in the 50's and 60's.
I think Seth Rogen is a coward for how he originally responded to threats...he hid.
Todays actors are cowards, anti military cowards, yet want to instigate aggression between nations by releasing such an insulting movie depicting assassination of active, currently serving leader of N-Korea.
In this instance, I think Koreans have a right to be upset over the release of this stupid movie.

I don't think it's appropriate for Officers to act emotionally immature while in uniform
Sorry, if you expect the usual talk radio/Fox News type of Conservatism you won't find it here.
Police have all the right in the world to protest, just not in uniform while carrying weapons, and being paid by the City, County or State.
If Cops want to protest they should do so in plain clothes, as the protesters do.
There's nothing more unnerving than seeing angry, vengeful cops acting out rage, acting immature, while in uniform, carrying weapons and on duty
It just looks bad, makes the cops seem as if they're their own Governing body, separate and above common citizens, and this sets a dangerous, very dangerous president for the future.
Nor do I think it was inappropriate for Mayor of New York to tell his bi-racial son to show extra care when in the presence of Officers, since after all it was the policy of NYPD to do random 'line ups' or 'stop and frisks' to minority youth.
So why wouldn't a parent tell their youth to show extra care when chances are they'll get the attention of Cops just for their racial tone, or if hanging out in large groups.
Sounds like a good parent to me.
And lots of 'Black' youth have hostile encounters with the police, even when not breaking the law.
To pretend this doesn't occur is to burry ones head in the sand.

Unlike racially driven Fox News/talk radio Conservatives, I'm consistent with how I feel about 'Gov' all across the board, and not just when it suits a particular political or deeply held racial bias...
I support police...what does that mean?
It means I respect moral laws (which weren't created by Cops, just enforced by them).
In order to respect Police, you first have to have solid values of your own, only then can you appreciate what they do.
But if you're someone without moral values, than the Police are probably just a nuisance.
So I respect that arm of the Government, but don't give them blind trust neither, cause after all underneath those badges are humans, and humans are flawed, humans have biases, prejudices ect.
But when someone at Walmart don't like you, at least they're not pointing gun at you.
When someone at Discount auto Store doesn't like your color or gender or height, or is made nervous by that, at lease they can't 'act out' and arrest or harass you on behalf of 'State Authority'.
I respect 'the law' cause I respect 'God' first.
If I didn't first respect or fear 'God', the law, mans laws, would mean nothing.
All that aside, I don't worship cops, like many on Fox News and talk radio do.
I respect them as long as they do their job right, proper and fair.

With all this recent news of Rep Steve Scalise once speaking to group associated with Klan like beliefs, can't believe no one ever mentions all the racist Hispanic gangs springing up in Los Angeles, that have literally driven 'blcks' from their homes and or apartments and or areas.
I never understood why racism only matters when it comes from whites?
But if Hispanics in Los Angeles are racist, use the 'N' word, shoot, kill, blcks just based on color, no coverage at all.
This new rise of racist Hispanic sentiment is far more violent than the modern day Klan is.
Media Conservatives like Hannity and Rush and Savage tell listeners all source of happiness and joy should come from elected politicians
Hannity, Rush, Levin and Savage (and all the rest) speak with forked tongues, in that on one hand 'Government bad', yet on the other hand, 'Government good, as long as people we like in it'...
These false prophets of logic have done their best to keep their audiences in the deepest, darkest, most depressive state of mind and outlook under President Obama.
They're constantly suggesting that one's over all happiness sense of well being should come from elected officials, rather than God divine.
I know many peoples minds have been poisoned by electoral politics, but for those who can still think outside that realm, all these talk radio hacks selfishly suggest to listeners is
'Your life is miserable, we want to make you feel miserable, for 8 whole years, just for political reasons, for if you're happy about just one thing, one outcome in your life, while P-Obama in office, it my actually give credibility to his Presidency, so instead we talk show host must make you feel as miserable as ever, but only until an elected politician we like is in office, then we'll tell you to start feeling good about life again, and that there's hope again.
Talk radio audiences, and those who call in, are some of the most pestimistic, gloomy, depressed people on Earth.
Not cause they're personally doing bad, but cause their minds have been poisoned by electoral politics and talk radio hosts who have convinced them all is baaaaad.
In the past, those who went to church, and listened to their Pastors, always knew that their source of happiness came for 'God divine', and the love and assurance he filled thy heart with, not electoral politics or human politicians.
Talk radio hosts, like false prophets, have led many away from the true source of light and joy.
And have tricked former Christians, believers, into putting their hope and faith in man, instead of Eternal creator.

Israel's Prime Minister slithers way into nation to lecture Both houses of Congress
I don't like being conned by con men on the street or by the Prime Minister of Israel, which would be Netanyahu.
But that's exactly what he and Speaker of the House Boehner did to the American people
Blatant slithery behavior, forcing our elected leaders to sit and be lectured by Netanyahu, which in effect means he's really going to be lecturing all of us, or trying to.
Basically more fear mongering, trying his best to scare people with common sense, but more importantly wants U.S. to be ready to go to war, again, for Israel..
Why don't they fight their own war with Iran, once and for all, and just get it over with. Why always drag U.S. into it, as if we haven't lost enough young military personal over there.
I have nothing against Israel, nothing at all, but do find this move by the Prime Minister, Netanyahu, to be very slithery and disrespectful to all the American people.
It would be like President Obama slithering his way over to Israel, and plan a speech at their capitol, to lecture Israel about their own national affairs?
Do you think Netanyahu would stand for that?...hell no, so why should we, or our President.
Now knee jerk low IQ Fox News and talk radio bred so called conservatives will automatically side with Israel and or Speaker Boehner (cause that's how they've been conditioned by media, ratings driven talk show hosts)
But they're to dense to see broader implications of this and don't realize that not everything is about the President all the time, rather it's about us, the citizens and nations well being.
Netanyahu is blatantly and openly disrespecting all U.S. citizens with his sneak attack speech, lecturing people who didn't even vote for him, up there like he's our President...how disrespectful!
But Rush and Hannity, Mark Levin (himself Jewish, will convince all their Obama hating listeners and viewers that Netanyahu should be worshipped, and hailed a hero for coming here.
Sorry, but that's just going to far for me, what's wrong and slithery is wrong and slithery.
It's not about the current President, it's about me, us, and what Netanyahu is doing.
We own that Whitehouse, not Israel or Netanyahu.
And if he respected us as a nation, he would of consulted with current President instead of slithering into House Chambers behind all our backs!
And I'd want him to give same respect to any President Rep or Dem period.

At least President is being consistent here in choosing to open diplomatic relations with all brutal Governments, instead of some...in reference to Cuba.
Although I think Cuba has a far better chance of changing it's ways (The Government) than Saudi Arabia ever will.
It's as if Saudi is untouchable to U.S. politicians in that they control so much of world economy/wealth.
Saudi can behead people, and it does, I'm talking Government or Kingdom sponsored beheadings for speaking out or dissing Islam or State official, yet as beheading is occurring the ruling Prince of that nation is never condemned as he strolls through White House, under both Dems and Rep's.
Saudis just seem to be untouchable, nothing they do is ever criticized by either parties leadership...I guess they know who pays their rent.
