Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting: Newtown, Connecticut Administrators, Students Among Victims, Reports Say

Commented Dec 14, 2012 at 21:35:24 in Crime

“Maybe someone (somewhere) will realize that there are some sick and disturbed individuals out there... and these people need help... Not more paperwork...

-

Gun control as a way to prevent tragedy is an exercise in futility.
Look at the middle east, if they can't get guns, they'll simply use improvised explosive... what then? Ban household cleaner and fuel???”

“It will be interesting to see what will happen in Quebec in the next federal election...

- The NDP was a one time protest vote... there won't be many left after the next election... specially with the work in their ridding (or lack there off)
- The Bloc will be back in the game, with the support of the PQ
- The Liberals will make some gains in Montreal

And since many Quebecers are starting to realize that being permanently in the opposition isn't exactly a good thing... it will be interesting how many will be voting Conservatives.”

“Yup, these are though times to be an officer.

If you try to arrest a teenage boy driving around in a pimped Escallade... with a trunk full of scantily dressed young girl... and pocket full of cell phones...

The officer will be accused of profiling because the boy is
- African
- Asian
- Native
- Caucasian

If they question him on how he could afford his "ride" since he has no reported mean of incomes... the police is harassing him because of his social standing...

And when they do arrest him for drug dealings and pimping... some hug a thug judge will give him yet another chance to turn his life around...

Don't know about you, but I could only arrest the exact same thugs so many times before I'd be ready to change job!”

Seriously, while he might be a nice and cool young man, he's not exactly the kind of guy I want running the party... never mind the country.”

“Yes I agree, but he's the the type that will suck all the NDP seats out of Quebec in the next election. Leaving them (NDP) in a third party status, as they should be, and the Conservatives with another majority government.”

“The cronyism and tenure inside the Liberal party is what has made the party irrelevant. The party does not actually belong to liberals anymore. Mr. Trudeau's vision, approach, team and leadership is far more sophisticated than his boyish looks. Don't be fooled...true moderates finally have a representative to speak and lead on there behalf. Let us align our support accordingly...Trudeau really is our Obama.”

“I think society took a wrong turn somewhere down the line.

As a kid, when a police officer talked to you, you answered the question with a "yes sir, no sir"... if you were impolite to them, the news would somehow make it to your parents... and you'd be in 'real' trouble.

Fast forward to 2012, it's somehow OK and acceptable for them insult them and resist arrest... and one of them resist too much and get a few bruise, they call it police brutality...”

On a side note, if people don't want to shot/tazered/smack by the police...
1. Don't resist the arrest

If you think the arrest was not justified, take them to court.”

"It's easier to crush a country using economic means." - Mr. t typed.
Nope, Japan tried that and look where they are today - still dependant on the US.

The economic entanglement benefits each country and helps to PREVENT a war. As to which country benefits more, clearly the US has some catching up to do.”

If China wants to flex its muscle, it would simply stop buying US treasury bonds, or worst yet, it would start selling them...”

“China has put itself in a precarious position. It has to grow its economy at about 8% just to keep its people from starving. The rest of the globe could quite easily reduce its dependence on China, which would crash the Chinese economy. The problem with joining the world community is that you become more dependent on the world, than the world becomes dependent on you.

China's $1.5 Trillion in US debt would be bought up pretty quickly by other entities. China doesn't have nearly the bite on America that you might think.”
