Do you think the police was conscious about what they did, if it was racist, or perhaps it was some deeply rooted subconscious bullcrap? I don't even what I'm talking about, not a psychologist over here.


I do not know the officers motivations, nor does anyone else. That doesn't stop anyone form assuming it was racism though.

They meant no poverty amongst Americans that count, silly.
Crimes committed by Muslims will be a pan-Islamic plot and proof of Islam's inherent evil. On the other hand crimes committed by non-Muslims will merely be the acts of loners who do not represent their belief system at all.
The probability of one's participation in homosexual acts is directly proportional to one's public disdain and disgust for homosexuals.
If a political figure makes an accusation of wrongdoing without evidence, odds are probable that the accuser or an associate thereof has in fact committed the very same act, possibly to a worse degree.

Considering what America considers poverty and what most of the world do, I would say there is no poverty in America.

All those "working poor" including military personnel are really "working moochers". *nod*

I was trying to point out that what we call poverty here would be considered quite well off in many places.

Except for the unemployed and homeless, and since we are talking about America I guess vanless people will count, too. Sometimes these chaps don't dare to be on welfare, who are genuinely disadvantaged. I don't know about the US, but at least where I live.

What kind of idiotic reason is this? Stopping pedestrian traffic? Give me a break.

It's an idiotic reason. No way this will hold up in court.
it is my firm belief that I should never have to justify my beliefs.

the kids were probably acting like kids. that can irritate adults.

they didn't get charged with anything that is a real crime so I don't see that It can be anything other than a cop not listening to kids when they say they are waiting for the bus.
whatever

There always is, but it gets drowned out by people pushing various agendas, then is forgotten once the next big story hits.

I like the title of the story, "DA to drop charges against edison". Not that Edison cares, being dead lo these 80 years.

It was a dumb charge made by a dumb cop who should be investigated, it seems. I figured the potential prosecution in this case wouldn't do anything with it.

It's the only sane thing, yes.

The DA saying it was in the interest of "Justice" to drop the charges is a little too face saving.

If I were the DA, I'd say something to the effect of:

"Considering Officer Krupke was patently idiotic to charge these young men in the first place, we're dropping the charges in the interest of not wasting any more of the Judiciary's time with farcical charges brought by officers who require more training on basic legal principles."

I have no choice but to sig this.
