    If this was some trolling site (and there are dozens of them out there) where people compete to be as outrageous as possible, I'd shrug it off, but this is dailykos.com, not one of them.

    For all the snark indulged in here (and I've contributed plenty of it myself, believe me), this is inappropriate. This isn't Daffy Duck getting shot point-blank and coming out of it with nothing but some soot on his face; this is a human being who was shot in the back and left to die by trigger-happy cops.

    Years ago I read a news story about a police shooting where the cops were laughing and singing "Another One Bites the Dust"... referencing Bugs Bunny here is on that level.

    Maybe I'm taking this personally because my kos signature, "Miscweant" comes from a Bugs Bunny cartoon where Elmer calls him a "wascawy miscweant." I don't think Bugs would ever indulge in a wisecrack in the face of an actual, real-life tragedy.

    You can't stop progress (or is that "profit"?)
