  •  If a police officer assaults someone, (0+ / 0-)

    and the local DA doesn't prosecute, that isn't the end of the fucking story.

    It's such an obvious falsehood that Obama and his people's hands are tied when cops brutalize protesters that it slides over into advocacy for the brutality and impunity.  How the hell else am I supposed to read a call for the Feds to ignore the behavior?

    The two things Teabaggers hate most are: being called racists; and black people.

    •  The president is simply not going to inject (11+ / 0-)

      himself into the affairs of local government.  If you want to childishly accuse people of "supporting" police brutality, it says way more about you than it does about them.  

      •  Sure. (0+ / 0-)

        I'm absolutely certain that Obama would be equally hands-off if a Teabagger rally got brutalized, too.

        It's a choice, dude.  Just because you'd make the same one doesn't mean it's not a choice.  It just means you'd make the same one.
