    then why are you giving the benefit of the doubt to the authorities rather than the citizens?

    •  Where have I done that? (0+ / 0-)

      I'm reserving judgement until we hear more. So far, we have a few news reports, and a charging document. Nothing more.

        I suspect with the FBI and Secret Service involved, this isn't just about breaking a state anti-terrorism law which is what they are charged with right now.
        On what basis do you "suspect" that?

        It implies that the authorities, ie the FBI and Secret Service being involved means that there is "more" likelihood that they are somehow guilty.

        That the authority of the FBI and SS is somehow more above reproach than the authority of the locals.

        I may of course be wrong, but you seem to assume because Fed Authority is involved, that the authorities are more credible.

        My impression, and that is certainly all it is, is that you think the Fed Authority makes it somehow more credible that the citizens are in the wrong.

        Am I wrong about that?

          It doesn't imply that at all. You're stretching in an attempt to start a pie fight which I'm not going to participate.
          I may of course be wrong,
          Yes you are.
          It implies that....
          You're not in my head. I am.

          No. You're incredibly cynical and antagonistic view. That's all it is.

          I'll say it again. There is very little information available beyond a few news reports, some history on the individuals, and a charging document. I'm going to reserve judgement on the facts, until I actually hear and see the facts. In the meantime, I suggest you stop your baseless attacks on other Kossacks who may or may not agree with you.

            A tad sensitive, no?

            I was asking you questions, not attacking you....wtf?

            You are the one who is making declarative statements of attack, mate...

            Jeeez. Wtf is wrong with you?
