Al Sharpton preaches at Mike Brown Funeral Ferguson Missouri 8/25/14
Al Sharpton, "we have money to give military equipment to police forces but we don’t have money for training",
"But the crime scene chronology only tells part of the story—because the Millers’ Massacre had been brewing for a long time, visible online. Their Facebook pages detail a descent into a murderous rage, railing against a tyrannical government and parroting talking points from fright-wing radio hosts such as Alex Jones and militia movement groups such as the Three Percenters while “liking” the pages of conservative activist groups ranging from the Heritage Foundation to FreedomWorks and the NRA.
The nation’s staunchest defender of the Second Amendment has told gun activists in Texas who insist on carrying assault-style rifles in public places to knock it off.
In a statement issued late last week, the National Rifle Association (NRA) called out so-called “open carry” groups in Texas that have been frightening restaurant customers and motorists by approaching them while carrying AK-47s and AR-15s.
The NRA applauded Texas for a “robust gun culture,” but noted that a number of activists had “crossed the line from enthusiasm to downright foolishness.”
Yes it's true, tens of millions of Teabaggers are going to magically appear in DC today and take over the government by camping out and demonstrating. You know, like #Occupy but with old fat nutjob armed Teabaggers riding their Rascal scooters around and waving their misspelled, racist signs.
ADMIN EDIT - taken off the front page for inappropriate post, but kept up as an example of what is wrong.
Yup, here it is, a Republican bill that makes the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT BIGGER in order to piss all over STATES' RIGHTS and spend more money on another losing war.
Republican hypocrisy at its finest. Disregard states' rights, disregard the will of the people, forget libertarianism, regulate the market. Welcome to the GOP, Hypocrisy Central.
God bless little Elaina. As a vulnerable child, the very people she relied upon to take care of her didn't pull through; and in death, neither did the law enforcement professionals.
There were two categories of places where Elaina could have been: a public space (e.g. a park, in or near a body of water, etc.) or a private space (e.g. a house, a garage, etc.). Volunteers combed acres of public space, but only government officials had the ability to obtain the permits necessary to search private spaces. An important question is how often and when did the TPD search the personal spaces of Elaina's mother and her boyfriend?
Even more disturbing was the spotlight put on the neighborhood where Elaina's mother lived. The deteriorating homes paralleled the residents' behavior. What kind of people start a rumble at the possible site of the solemn discovery of a little girl's body? We've seen the videos of these dysfunctional people who didn't have enough self-control and respect to behave like rational human beings. In a word--losers.
The sad truth is that the majority of these types of tragedies happen in neighborhoods like Elaina's and Ariel Castro's.
I don't normally go to lib blogs like this, but they're attacking one of their own. Get the popcorn!
"The latest scandal to break involve 7 of her top political advisers (who also happen to work in her Auditor’s Office). They were all given huge raises totaling $131,147.73 out of the county budget. And most of these were right after these advisers worked on her 2010 election. Coincidence... I don’t think so. That’s an average raise of over $18,000! A politician who is using her elected office as a way to dole out cushy jobs to her political staff is not someone we can afford to promote to the Mayor’s office.
But it doesn't look like they stock dignity.

Is your kid special, does he or she like performing, modeling, singing or acting? Does your child like to be on camera or take pictures? Is your little one-not-so-little?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may want to get your children involved with the Stikii Kids Club contest.
For having his head smashed into the sidewalk; Zimmerman does not have any visible injuries. He received no medical treatment. Wouldn't he at least need a band aid or something?
For those who are claiming he was attacked by the teenager, this video is rather damning.
Microsoft has developed a GPS with an "avoid ghetto" feature. Can you imagine the uproar that would have occurred if a company that wasn't run by a nerdy liberal would have introduced such a device? Thank god that Bill Gates' political leanings insulate him from ever being considered a "racist."
Only this time it is a little closer to home.
In what can only be described as an absolute disgrace, Ohio police and firefighters began National Police Week on Monday by holding press conferences across the state (incl. Toledo) to rail on SB5 and push the repeal initiative. While that doesn't sound too bad, what makes it truly repugnant is that it was done under the guise of honoring fallen officers.
I don't know wolfman personally but receive occassional e-mails from him, and of course see his posts on here and elsewhere. I'm used to his disjointed rantings on various topics and ignore most of them but lately he seems to be reaching a breaking point of some sort.
The teenager who shot and killed a Toledo Police detective Keith Dressel in 2007 has been moved from a juvenile facility in Columbus to the Toledo Correctional Institution, where he will serve the remainder of his sentence.
Tuesday morning at 7:30a Mike Bell will be on the show to talk about the budget turned over to City Council this afternoon. 'Nuff said.
The following letter was sent to our ex-Mayor. He never responded. This is an issue I hope all Toledoans would be concerned about. I called 911 about a crime and the Police never showed up!
I am hoping someone in this city will find out why the Police/Vice Squad did not show up.
Dear Carty Finkbeiner - Mayor of Toledo Ohio
I am writing in response to a 911 call I made the weekend of September 18-20th.
I called 911 to report a crime in progress here in the apartment building where I live.
