  •  A good diary and now a book I want to read! (16+ / 0-)

    I like how you challenge people to do more than say "He is a murderer, he should be punished"

    1) He IS a murderer and should be punished. Of that there is NO doubt. (Summarily executed by LEO is NOT acceptable.  LEO has already proved willing to do just that given how they shot up a vehicle that look SIMILAR to the suspect's)

    2) If we fail to learn anything as to how this came about and WHY he decided to transform from a good person (see accounts of him returning $8,000, service to his country, etc.) to what he has become today, then we as a society will have failed.

    3) As a progressive community, the FANATICAL way the LAPD (and more) are going after him should frighten us all.  Far too many people have been murdered in this country, but yet those murders do NOT inspire cops to start shooting up vehicles that kinda look like the suspect's.  Far too many people have been murdered in this country, but yet we have never heard them described by LEO as being a TERRORIST.  Far too many people have been murdered in this country, but yet the TALK of using DRONES on American soil to KILL him (or severely injure him) should frighten us all.  $1 million dollars....that is a huge reward....Isn't that amount of money almost a wink and nudge to some fanatics to say vigilantism is acceptable in THIS case?

    4) I PERSONALLY do NOT like the word "thug" to describe him.  Too many RWNJ's I know use the word "thug" as a codeword for (starts with N).  Funny how they NEVER use the word thug to describe a white person.

    Never underestimate stupid. Stupid is how reTHUGlicans win!

    •  Funny. I used the word thug. And I would (0+ / 0-)

      definitely use it for white people.  In fact, the word conjures up images of the mafia to me.  In fact, I do believe it's used when referring to mafia members quite often.

      you don't like the "fanatical" way the police are going after a murderer?  Can you offer a less "extreme" way of doing it?  I mean crap, Charlie Sheen asked him to call, even that did not work.

      I am tired of arguing this.  Those who defend this guy will have to live with their own support.  They will have to explain to themselves at the least why they support a rampaging lunatic.

      And when they are done with that, they will talk about banning guns.
