SHOCKING VIDEO: Michigan Police Firing Squad Shows Shoot-to-Kill Cops Are Out of Control! Plus, GOP Candidate Joe the Plumber wants to shoot immigrants coming over the US Border! More too this weekend.

Michigan Police Firing Squad shows America's military-like cops are out of control

Read hundreds of indignant comments and more videos, some condemning cops, some agreeing, all wondering, like these on Facebook...check em if you have an account:

  • Amber Judd ‎@Scriven: Saginaw is a mostly black community. There are other races too, but mostly black. I don't know if all the cops there are white, but like a lot of areas there is still unfair racial profiling. Saginaw does have a crime issue, but this man was homeless, not a gangster. Yes, he had a knife, but they could have tasered him or tackled him. Injuries would have been slightly easier to tolerate than a senseless death.

  • Radioman KansaSitty We dont' need lawsuits about this, for starters... we should prosecute these cops, not just fire them. Send them to prison. Then sue the city and fire the chief for negligence. "may need a little bit of training", that apologist said?
Cops have been out of control with their 'thoracic cavity' shoot-to- kill euphemism for some time. That was a militarized POLICE RIOT...and they always manage to get off because police close ranks and defend each other.... bs'ing people with 'you don't understand how hard our jobs are." 

And of course this is why cops will do everything they can to keep citizens from taping evidence that might not look so good in court or on TV, including trying to charge citizens with 'interfering'.

Fact is, if a cop can't wound a guy and bring him down at tht distance with those cannons they carry, he needs more practice at the range. And America should insist that cop 'stand your ground'  policy of citizen murder across the land be changed. Best way to do that, is to sue cities asses off and insist on police prosecution.

If there aren't laws to meet this nationwide problem, then law-happy legislators should pass one in every state to criminalize 'excessive force' to protect citizens from police whose tactics are more criminal than service-oriented.   Especially at that distance.  I think current soldiers practice better judgment than gung-ho, shaved- headed ex military cops who miss being in the sh!t overseas.

Saginaw needs a Federal investigation to look into a potential, institutional pattern of police hate crimes over this...and maybe it should be extended to other cities as well.  That will get the cases out of favorable local courts and jurisdictions.


Another mental midget from the Right....

Republican Joe The Gunner Proposes We “Start Shooting” Immigrants

During a fundraising dinner for Republican state senate candidate Lori Klein last Friday, Samuel Wurzlbacher (AKA Joe the plumber) made his personal feeling on border patrol clear.
“For years I’ve said, you know, put a damn fence on the border going to Mexico and start shooting. I’m running for Congress and that should be a bad thing to say. But you know what, it’s how I feel…I want my borders protected, I’m very very adamant about that.”
Mr. Wurzlbacher, who is running for Congress in Ohio, came to fame in the Republican party after asking Obama a question about small business taxes and appears to be catering to the extreme right wing of the party. Sharing his views with
“I’m running for Congress. How many congressmen or people running for Congress have you heard, put a fence up and start shooting? None? Well you heard it here first. Put troops on the border and start shooting, I bet that solves our immigration problem real quick.”

Reagan's Budget guy criticizes

Paul Ryan’s Fairy-Tale Budget Plan

PAUL D. RYAN is the most articulate and intellectually imposing Republican of the moment, but that doesn’t alter the fact that this earnest congressman from Wisconsin is preaching the same empty conservative sermon .More on this guest editorial in the NYT.



 Ryan caught lying about not wanting Stimulus money for his state.  Signed letters prove it.  See 'em.

An unexpectedly large drop in U.S. crude oil inventories pushed the price of oil higher on Wednesday.
Benchmark oil rose 90 cents to finish at $94.33 per barrel Wednesday in New York, its highest level since mid-May. The Energy Department said stockpiles fell 3.7 million barrels last week to 366.2 million barrels. Analysts had predicted a decline of 1.5 million barrels, according to Platts, the energy information arm of McGraw-Hill.

It marked the third consecutive large weekly decrease in oil supplies. Still, analysts point to production problems and seasonal factors more than increased demand for the declines. But with supplies still above normal for this time of year, any decrease tends to cause a rise in oil prices.   More from Yahoo.


Iran dismisses Israeli Sabre Rattling - on ONE HAND

Iran on Tuesday said it is dismissing Israeli threats of an imminent attack against it, explaining that even some Israeli officials realised such a "stupid" act would provoke "very severe consequences." 

"In our calculations, we aren't taking these claims very seriously because we see them as hollow and baseless," foreign ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast told reporters in a weekly briefing.    From Yahoo News.


And on the OTHER, Iranian leader commits what in the USA would be considered a criminal 'terroristic threat."

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told an annual anti-Israel protest in Tehran on Friday that the Jewish state was a "cancerous tumour" that will soon be excised, drawing a strong US rebuke.

US National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor told AFP that if Iran was as concerned about human rights as Ahmadinejad said in his speech in support of the Palestinians, then it should stop supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Ahmadinejad's diatribe against Israel in his Quds (Jerusalem) Day address was the latest in a long line to have drawn criticism from Western governments.   All the details from Yahoo

Mo's GOP Senate Candidate Todd Akin: No More Federal School Lunch Program

At this Governor's Ham Breakfast earlier this month, while I'm sure enjoying a slice of nutritious and delicious pork, candidate for US Senate, Rep. Todd Akin (R-Clayton), said he isn't sure the federal government should be involved in the school lunch program. 

I wonder if Akin is aware that nearly 23% of Missouri children are food insecure, with no guarantee  of where their next meal may come from? Or maybe this is just Akin's way of doubling down on his statement that "the right to food is a communist ideal."

Raymond James
Often when I hear the GOP talk about food stamps and school lunches they have a underlying racist tone. Sometimes they just ome out and say it is only blascks on the food stamps. In Johnson County Missouri once you get away from Whiteman AFB the number of students of color drops to less than 10 students per shool district. These are white students that are on free and reduced lunches.

Many of these kids take backpacks home on the weekend packed with food supplied by charities. Many of these districts have a free summer feeding program. .

So what difference is a kids hair color if he is hungry should he not eat?
So we have lots of kids on a school lunch program for a couple of years right now families need the help.
