9:06 AM yesterday Ken Mehlman commented on Here's What Happened When RNC Attendees Met an Actual Muslim.
There's crazy shit in everybody's holy book, the difference is a lot of Muslims still do the kind of crazy shit that Jews and Christians stopped doing hundreds of years ago. Is there any non-Muslim country where you can still get the death penalty for committing adaltry? Count the countries where gay sex is still a crime, how many of them are Muslim?

Wow, can straight guys really be as, um, direct as Champ was and get any pussy? I know times have changed, but still.

I guess I'm glad the coup failed. In the long run democracy and civilian control of the military work better. I hope winning this one doesn't give Erdogan a swelled head and acentuate his authoritarian tendencies.

The cops in the video weren't militarized, not even a little bit. They were police in riot gear. Do you think soldiers go into battle holding clubs and yelling "move back?"

@72 Google 'is the Baltimore Police Department making fewer arrests?'

I think the proper question to ask is whether the frequent confrontations between police and poor African Americans that sometimes result in a black person becoming dead are necessary for the preservation of public order? I believe that the answer is yes. The surge in Baltimore's murder rate following a drastic change in police behavior would seem to support my view.

@29 There's little doubt that the BLM movement has driven up the murder rate in Baltimore. Baltimore is the only place where the local prosecutor did what the BLM folks wanted. The BLM movement may not have driven up crime nationally, but that is because it has not, so far, been widely successful in terms of influencing public policy.

@25 Crime is down compared to 20 years ago, but up compared to last year.

@24 I admit that the casual connection between the slight up-tick in the nation's murder rate and the BLM movement remains unproven. However the drastic increase in Baltimore's murder rate was almost certainly the result of the decision by that city's State's Attorney to jump on the BLM band wagon. You can read more about that here:

@21 I don't doubt that such things frequently occur in the deluded minds of Social Justice Warriors but I was talking about reality. How many documented cases of non-resisting black people being killed by police have there been? Speaking more generally, do you really think the justice system doesn't deal properly with cops who break the law? As we speak, former police officers Ray Tensing and Michael Slager are facing murder charges in Ohio and South Carolina respectively. The only recent case in which a police shooting was not properly investigated was that of Laquan McDonald. That happened in Chicago which is not know for the high ethical standards of its public officials.
