    •  this site had some posting really offensive (6+ / 0-)

      comments the day they were killed - asking why they weren't in "uniform" (they were in plain clothes going to interview someone accused of misdemeanor sexual battery and were ambushed by him).

      after the defense of the nutcase former l.a. officer who killed multiple people - i get a bit tired of the ftp group - no, i get highly offended by the rhetoric - and the same goes for the limited scope of some who scream constantly about drones while totally ignoring the hostage-taking going on in congress.

      these same people screech about obama and the democrats while giving the hostage takers a pass (much like the hero-worship of the l.a. former cop).

      all i can say is we are living in a warped world - we expect the police to protect us when WE are in danger, the rest of the time, they can be demonized... the same goes for politicians.  people raised hell about bush doing nothing to stop the 9/11 attacks even when warned that something was imminent, yet are condemning holder and obama for not announcing ahead of time that they would not use all tools at their disposal to prevent a similar attack if it were exposed.

      we are a nation of schizophrenics (no ill intended to those afflicted by this horrible illness) - we cannot decide on what we want or expect from our government - yet we want to know EVERYTHING that is going on.  we don't trust those who have knowlege greater than our own - we want that knowledge exposed even if it means compromising the outcome of investigations of potential developing harm.

      ugh.

      going to the barn now.

      i need the comfort of the wisdom of my horse.
