The best thing about this is that it's proof that the stupid wears off...

Yeah, you should listen to my show...


"The Police Are People After All…"

Why Grand Juries Don’t Indict Cops When They Kill
Police are allowed to use lethal force under specific circumstances, when it’s reasonable to do so. Especially when it comes to black suspects, that means almost anytime.

Police sometimes see things differently.

Former Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson told a grand jury that Michael Brown looked like a “demon” who might shrug off a hail of bullets before Wilson shot him dead. Shortly after Cleveland Police Officer Timothy Loehmann gunned down Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old holding a toy gun, he told the dispatcher that Rice, who was shot within two seconds of Loehmann’s arrival, was “maybe 20.” Milwaukee Police Officer Christopher Manney told investigators that Dontre Hamilton, an unarmed man whom he shot 14 times in October, was so “big” and “muscular” that “he would be impossible to control if you were one-man.” At 5-foot-7 and 180 pounds, Hamilton was below average height and overweight.


He believed that he could fly...

It's time to say goodbye...

…To this fucking year.

Today in White Privilege: White criminals are more desirable than black non-criminals

The stark reality that Princeton sociologist Devah Pager documented-- that whites with a criminal record are more likely to get job interviews and offers than equally if not better qualified blacks without a criminal record--goes almost unnoticed.

2014 was a banner year for Florida Man


Funny how that works out...

NYPD Disrespect Continues, De Blasio Heckled And Booed At Cadet Graduation (VIDEO)

The disgraceful trend of complete and utter disrespect toward New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio at the hands of the NYPD continues, and it doesn’t look like it will stop anytime soon. It appears that the graduating police cadets from the New York City Police Academy have already been indoctrinated to hate de Blasio just like the officers on the force they are joining. On Monday, a new crop of cops graduated from the Academy, and de Blasio was booed and heckled during his speech to them. Some even imitated the actions of uniformed officers at the funeral of slain New York officer Rafael Ramos and turned their backs on Mayor de Blasio.

At one point during his speech, de Blasio said:

“You will confront all manner of problems. Problems that you didn’t create.”

At this statement, a heckler shouted:

“You created them!”
