Re: “Tucson Responds to Ferguson

Seriously...

"The big question is ..."

No, the following is not the big question. It's a red-herring you made up.

"did the Obama Administration refuse to allow the National Guard"

You mean THE MISSOURI National Guard, right? They don't answer to the executive branch of the US Federal Government, and that branch did nothing to affect how they were deployed.

"...in to Ferguson to protect lives and property?"

Nice prepositional phrase. The reason why the MONG would be deployed is of no consequence to whether the Federal Government CAN or DID intervene. It did not.

"We need an answer...soon."
We? Have you noticed that while you have the highest number of posts, you also have the highest number of dislikes. You're in a society of one. Your "we" is likely you and the other voices in your head.

Fortunately you've already shown your true "color" when you wrote:
"I would pack up and leave that community and let it sink into the abyss."

...and now we know your solution to things is to run away.

Best

Re: “Tucson Responds to Ferguson

If a normal person discharges a firearm, he's charged with discharging a firearm.
If he/she aims it at another person or threatens others there's an additional charge of reckless endangerment.
If a person is shot there's a charge of anything from negligent manslaughter to murder -- sometimes even if there is no premeditation (a requirement for murder).

But if you have a police uniform, you have a license to do all those things and not even be brought up on charges. We do live in a new world... one where the "police powers" extend beyond anything that makes them a part of our society. They do not PROTECT us. They protect themselves. They do not SERVE us. They serve themselves. And we pay for it. In money and liberties and life.

Re: “Is Ten's Becoming the New Candy Store? (For the Record, That's Not A Good Thing) [UPDATED]

I think it's cute that bloggers want to rename a business. If you'd like to know what it should be called... just ask the proprietors. That's how it works in the good ol' U S of A. Shooting happen when people get crazy. That doesn't mean business must be renamed or shut down.

After all, I see the Safeway at Oracle and Ina is still called Safeway, two years after Loughner shot Gifford.

Now back to your strawman.
