Trump comes out a bit skeptical of a police shooting, while Freepers were in mid-exterminate the ferals mode.
You can almost hear the collective mental record scratch before they come to heel
little jeremiah read all about this case in FrontPage Magazine, and now knows more than the police about what happened:
http://www.frontpagemag.com/point/264259/was-terence-crutcher-pcp-daniel-greenfieldBut Leaning Right knows Trump was being empathetic, which is always fine, and Hillary sucks for not doing it:
Guy was on PCP, 8 outstanding warrants, acted crazy, and looks as though the cops tazed him or were going to. The article above has some info, other places have more.
Trump was not pandering here. He was speaking from the heart, like a person would when talking to a good friend. And that’s one reason people support him.Daffynition thinks Trump was pandering, which is awesome when Trump does it.
Hillary, on the other hand, will say nothing until all her advisers have weighed in.
It sounded like pandering to me; as were the *questions*.BenLurkin is back to this being another blameless policman shooting a black guy.
I love the Donald, and understand why he did it. So all is good.
Suspect acts hinkyOn the other hand, traderrob6 is swayed by Trump's trenchant analysis:
Suspect gets treated hinky.
I’m not a huge fan of Donald Trump but he has a right to and should give his opinion as he would inevitably be asked anyway.chris37 tries to split the difference with 'questions remain.'
From viewing the video I would tend to agree with his assessment....it looks like a rare bad shoot.
If he is troubled by it, then he is troubled by it.Again. On a website where every mass shooter is preemptively a Muslim Hillary voter, chris37 argues for suspending judgement until the trial is over.
It doesn’t bother me that he wants to express his opinion.
Personally, I’m not going to be bothered by it until I am shown actual evidence that a crime was committed.
If police in this case did commit a crime, then they should be charged accordingly. If not, then nothing.
What I want to avoid at this point in being purposely whipped into a frenzy by a lying media trying to advance the agenda of our lying government.HiTech RedNeck has been posting a lot lately about how Trump is being inspired by God:
I don’t believe anything I see or hear in this country straight off any longer.
My position is this.
If a crime was committed here, bring charges, show me the evidence, prove it to a jury and get a conviction.
I’m not going to participate in a media trial.
I think God may have put Trump here as the Solomonic voice needed to defuse the gratuitous, evil tensions that Bronco Bama has cowboyed up among the black people. Let’s pray for Trump and give him a chance.Washing her hands of any side-taking, PrairieLady2 just blames society for not teaching kids the world is black and white:
If the general atmosphere in our country is ‘anything goes’, then we’re going to see an increase in harmful behaviors.
Moms and Dads, you have kids. You’ve got to instill that sense of principle and decency BEFORE they even go to kindergarten as well as helping them to practice and polish those lessons in the years later. You have to know what they’re saying and doing when they think you aren’t looking so that you CAN catch the bad stuff in the bud and nip it, as well as promote and reward the good you learn about. If YOU don’t know right from wrong, then you can’t teach your kids, and you become part of the problem.
Situational ethics is pathetic. Some things simply have to be black and white in those formative years ..ie right or wrong and what can we do better next time around. And make sure there IS a next time around so you can reinforce those hugely important lessons.
