LAPD officers beat Rodney King on camera...March 3, 1991

In 29+ years, things have only gotten worse...or so it seems to me. Maybe it just wasn't caught on video as often.
The real problem is that it hasn't gotten "better". I am so disgusted that I am nearly speechless.
Many have stated things about this issue much more eloquently than I am capable.

“We can never be satisfied as long as the Negro is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality,” Martin Luther King, Jr. said during his address at the March on Washington in 1963.

Well, I am not satisfied with America nor with it's leadership or lack thereof. Somehow, we must make America a nation where EVERY person is unafraid to walk the sidewalk or drive a car.

Just had a thought about MLB re-opening

How are players going to retaliate when they get beaned now?

They can't even spit or touch their faces while on the mound. You think a bunch of men who act like 10 yr old's aren't going to rush the mound and fight when a pitcher throws at someone's head??????

Every day is a gift from God

I see this message a lot in my travels. If this was true, I would re-gift mine to a rich repug so they can experience the real world.

How did California's congressional seat get flipped?

"Republican Mike Garcia defeated Democrat Christy Smith in Tuesday’s special election for a vacant congressional seat in a swing district in the Los Angeles suburbs."

Is there a reasonable answer?
