If the next few posts are bold italic until a web monkey swings by to manually sanitize the post, then you know the Stranger web people still aren't very good at their job.

@14: Word.

@4: Wait wait wait. You're saying that President Obama could have used a legislative supermajority to jail executives? Either you're suggesting a bill of attainder or an ex post facto law, both of which are explicitly prohibited in the Constitution.
Time to put 8th-grade social studies on that list also...

Really? You think people hear "Antikythera" and DON'T immediately think "weird primitive mechanical computer"?
Well, probably a lot don't. But almost nobody who's ever heard of it before.

@51: Heck, you can't even do simple arithmetic. Either you're rounding in nonstandard and irresponsible ways, or you actually believe that 3*17<47

So, Alleged, do you have any evidence that Chicago's murder rate is actually "stratospheric" as you claim? (Even if the murder rate were to DOUBLE overnight, it still wouldn't crack the top five, among major American cities.) I mean, I didn't think you'd be able to tell the difference between a function and its derivative, but I figured I'd give you a chance. I guess calculus goes on that list as well.

And of course, still no answer as to how many wrongful killings by police it would take to constitute a problem. It's not a question that requires a lot of brainpower to answer, but apparently you fail even that.
Say, do you believe that lynching was ever a serious problem in America?

@5: This.
The regressive left is a cancer on American liberalism.

@41: "Chicago's murder rate is stratospheric"
Literally not even in the top 15 among major American cities. And the worst offenders have a murder rate THREE TIMES that of the Windy City.
Same old lie, same old bullshit as always.

@10: Okay, I'm no supporter of BLM as a disorganization. Better?
Yeah, I remember OWS and how they were dead-set against any sort of organizational scheme. I also remember how they didn't accomplish SHIT.

And when I see prominent BLM spokespersons tolerating racism and anti-Semitism within their movement, I find it hard to excuse the movement as a whole. The hypocrisy of fighting hatred and prejudice with hatred and prejudice sits a little sour with me.

@41: Your evidence that the system works is that, in one particular case, the officer was indeed charged. No mention of the fact that the damning evidence (the dashcam footage) was deliberately kept under wraps FOR OVER A YEAR and that activists had to fight like hell to get the footage released!
If the system worked properly, the officer in question would have been charged within a month of the shooting, and other officers wouldn't have falsified their reports to cover for the bastard (for which several of them are now losing their jobs).

@44: I can add to the list of names, but first I need to know how many you're looking for. How long does the list have to be before you will admit that there's an actual problem?
