    that I didn't try the other two. I have had other reasons for finding this user's opinions and 'debating' tactics detestable, but in this case you are blaming the messenger for his/her correct message. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.
    Pretending that dumping on an entire county is excusable or appropriate in response to this awful story is schmuckish to the Nth degree. I believe if I were a relative of the murdered man I would find Kalex's comment obscene as his/her first comment on the story; it trashes every adult in the county who lives there, including the members of Kelly Thomas' family.
    After that comment, as a grieving relative I would find Kalex's claim to have wept first self-serving, and would suspect it to be false. Even if I later found out that s/he did actually feel sorrow for my loss, it wouldn't erase the rage his/her comment first induced.

    Mr. President, if you've kept all your commitments to my civil rights, then you never made enough commitments in the first place.
