“"Shock Call"... It was a statement of rules to the game... The "call" was not shocking. The whole incident might have been "exciting" but the "call" was not shocking. ---I was speeding and was issued a speeding ticket--- that was a "shock ticket"???”
“I feel very sorry for you.. I don't know what it's like to live in a world of barriers but it must work for you...”

“What doesn't work for anyone is the parade of out of control adults with guns, criminals in training, people constantly hiding behind the threat of power over their spouses, children, the public in malls, churches, airports, train stations, concerts, stadiums, schools, universities, on buses, trains, on military bases, at zoos, places of employment, grocery stores, gas stations, hospitals and court houses. Ditch the gun before you turn insane the day after your proclamation of sanity. Celebrate faith over fear. Hitler is gone, really.”
“We embrace technology in every aspect of our lives. I would guess that there is existing technologies that may have prevented this terrible accident but we can't seem to have those conversations because anymore everything is either all or nothing.
If you choose to have a gun out and loaded for protection in your residence or business, or car, or on your person wouldn't it be reasonable to require that your personal protection weapon of choice have some type of technology that would enable ONLY the gun owner to fire it? All other weapons must be stored properly or face criminal penalties in the event of a tragedy like this.....how would a gun control law like that be too restrictive, threaten our second amendment rights or a be "gun grab"?”
“There's no law agains falling out of love and there's not law agains getting a divorce but to sneak around and deceive those that love you... Yes there is a law against that and that's the law of courage. Something says you not only failed in your marriage and your affair but in your job and in your friends, family and self.... Seriously, take a look at yourself and ask yourself, what are you worth?”
“I have to believe what the courts are considering is the impact of the public’s belief and definition of “virtual”… On line “consequences” are not always weighed as heavy as “in person” consequences. Is it okay to harm another if it’s only a “virtual” harm? Good, bad or indifferent, this will be a case of precedents because there is an “idea” that if something is done online, it’s not that bad because no physical harm was done…”
“this guy constructs more spin than a used carsalesman. the "drug war" didn't cause these deaths. poor choices, bad policies and no communication. when i was young, i lost a friend in a car accident. he spun out around a curve and hit a telephone pole. i wonder if I can find 13 people that were killed when their cars hit telephone poles.... therefore telephone poles are the cause for their deaths...”

“No. Marijuana did not kill these people. Bullets from the guns of corrupt police killed most of these unfortunate folks, many of whom never tried marijuana even once.
But perhaps DavEsh, you like living in a Gulag state where people get shot from police errors and are never held to account.
5 year old children and ministers from churches, grandparents and others killed by supposed law officers breaking our laws should not be blamed for having the misfortune of being gunned down by out of control paramilitaries with agendas of repression.
No one should ever be killed over a weed.”

“Did you read any of the victim descriptions? One of them was an 11 year old boy shot by SWAT in a raid. What was his bad choice?”

“Your example is totally different than the above stories. His was an accident, the above deaths were because of the police, quotas, fraud, and stupid laws enacted by people who are ignorant and afraid to actually study that which they ban.”
“I think its interesting to hear the same people claiming it's a violation of constitutional rights are often the same people that want gun control... Just an observation, don't respond with silly attacks against me... ...And if you feel inclined to respond, re-read my post. Did I mention anything about my opinion regarding Miranda rights or Gun Control... Remember, I simply stated an observation...”
“It does “feel” a little hypocritical of Bill and the other Billionaire boys. However, I do respect that they see “capitalism” from the “other side”… I can’t fault him for criticizing the system but I do fault them for not constructing functional processes to “fix” it. I think the frustration comes from their “actionless” rhetoric. This is where hypocrisy joins the dance. Mr. Nebraska screamed and cried that his secretary paid more taxes but he did nothing about it, only to further complain when his company didn’t generate as much profit this year as he felt it should. It’s like listening to a self-righteous religious leader preach about the damnation of porn, only to find dirty pictures in his computer.”
