How stupid they are at Metro airport.  They gave cell phone lots to wait in to pick up arriving passengers.  Get to terminal and cops have curb lane blocked and try to keep you moving in next 2 lanes.  I stopped to let my passenger in and he told me to move it.  I said I can't without running over her.  They were prob rent a cops with ICE jackets thinking they owned the place.

Someday in the not too distant future............................. ;D

Is/was the hung jury in the Baltimore case against 6 police officers a case of PC prosecutorial overkill?

Like the Treyvan Martin case in Florida if the prosecutor hadn't felt the need to charge in reaction to the public pressure of protesters - and just applied a few simple charges as should have occurred then you'd have found a more likely instance of a conviction...

But in the PC world they were charged with everything but the kitchen sink - to appease rioters instead of seeking justice.

Sounds like a hung jury was about the best outcome they could get.

Didn't take much to see this happening... 

George is retiring at the same time the new Council takes office

side note:   the police Chief who retired and then got re-hired with double dip pay for 4 years also is re-retiring...

I'm thinking that so long as Trump can stay alive (as in above the ground) until the RNC Convention in Cleveland, he has a good shot.  Problem is....  staying alive (and he knows it)......

I'm thinking how wonderful it is that Jeb Bush is such a unifying force in politics in that we can all hate him together both democrats and republicans.

Neither will last and the motivator behind the claims is simply that those who have exhausted their benefits are no longer counted.....  Those stats are very misleading....  but you already know that duck.....
