There is never an excuse for violence against police


Obama made a statement about the Ferguson, Missouri (or Fergy-MO) situation.

“It’s important to remember how this started. We lost a young man.”  We are sooooo careless like that.

“when something like this happens, the local authorities –- including the police -– have a responsibility to be open and transparent about how they are investigating that death, and how they are protecting the people in their communities.”  Well, the Fergy-MO PD shouldn’t be investigating it, as they have forfeited any credibility.  As for how they are “protecting” the people in their communities, well, there are few things as transparent in their intentions as machine guns and armored personnel carriers.

I just used the interjection “well” twice in that paragraph.  Can you tell I’m in the middle of reading Rick Perlsein on Reagan?

“There is never an excuse for violence against police...”  Self-defense against homicidal maniacs seems like a good excuse to me.

“And here, in the United States of America, police should not be bullying or arresting journalists who are just trying to do their jobs”.  But you’ll tell us in what countries it is okay for police to bully and arrest journalists, right?

“There are going to be different accounts of how this tragedy occurred.”  The police account, and the real one.
