“Because we didnt want a WWIII.

The allies demanded unconditional surrender and built new governments in the nations they liberated (well, except the USSR, who invaded and took control of satellites) because they had seen the "diplomacy as usual" end of WWI turn directly into WWII.
Indeed we are still fighting the problems that WWI left behind, with a big chunk of the M.E. problems stemming from dividing the Ottoman empire into colonies for victorious powers.”

“We're not talking just about Walker, the story is about Rodas as well and the typing and testing that need to be done. Another commenter told me it takes 5-6 weeks for the blood tests to come back. That's garbage. It takes 5-6 weeks to complete the results, notify the family and package the deal for public release. There's more to be considered and it has nothing to do with who was driving.”

Patricia013 on Dec 7, 2013 at 10:37:47

“Yes, but the media IS talking about Walker even though its been proven he wasn't driving. That was my point. Well, you tell me how Walker's death as a passenger has anything to do with the person who was driving? This is simply a quest for sensationalism.”

“Now why would one put a "security hold" on the results of an autopsy. Maybe to prevent credibility-damaging information like drug and/or alcohol abuse before the accident?”

Patricia013 on Dec 6, 2013 at 17:07:37

“It was probably put on security hold to keep the sleazeballs from making something of it like they are now trying to make something of the girls he dated. Good grief...he wasn't driving, could have been higher then a kite (but wasn't) and what difference would it make? He WASN'T driving!”

SCPCODER on Dec 6, 2013 at 13:55:52

“Did you not read the article to find out why? Your theory is hogwash. If they were on drugs or alcohol, it would, first of all, take 5-6 weeks to find out. They did send the body fluids out to be tested. So, delaying the cause of death by one day would not make a difference in your view of things. Geeze, read the whole story before you start criticizing.”

“Probably why Obama is scaling back the drone program. When you have attack vehicles that are deaf, dumb and blind per se civilian casualties are going to be higher. And who cares if they're in secret? It's not like Afghanistan and Pakistan are legitimate friends and allies. I wonder if the reason the U.S. is in Afghanistan in the first place is defense or using it as an offense staging area. Same with Pakistan. Would they give us permission to raid Al Qaeda and the Taliban if we weren't stationed there or nearby?”

“My comment had nothing to do with their race. I was talking about other people not caucasian Americans, their nationality means nothing to me. You think our prisons are bad, imagine being in a Mexican, Argentinian, Kenyan, or worst of all CAMP 14 in N. Korea and you'll see the worst prison here is a vacation compared to them. County jail or prison, it's immaterial, they're all rooms with bars. They'd save us a lot of money and probably reduce crime if the NPS directed all it's wardens to direct their prisons the same way Arpaio does. Would you risk life in a prison like that for aggravated assault, murder or rape? Of course not, it's a fate worse then execution. Jail is a "harsh mistress" to use the long-unused term and it should stay that way.”

arx754 on Dec 1, 2013 at 10:22:31

“Huge difference between jail and prison.

AGAIN, since you ignored it, the "vast majority" of inmates in Arpaio's jail are merely awaiting trial. Remember? "Innocent until proven guilty"?

And, btw, I actually had to google that (make-up of inmates in his jail). I hadn't known how many were actually convicted and serving time versus just awaiting trial.

Even I was surprised that so many were only "awaiting trial".

And, btw, "imprisonment" is their punishment. It's not "imprisonment plus torture". Or, if it is, then at sentencing, the judge should make that a part of the record so that people like Arpaio don't add their own sadistic ideas to the sentence.

Finally, Arpaio LOVES the attention he's getting over all this, and that's why he's doing it. If he was a serious man, really intent on scaring people into not committing crimes, he wouldn't take such obvious enjoyment out of what he's doing and release such statements to the media. It's all a big joke to him.

So, you want to make prison conditions harsher? Okay. But, let's not put one man in charge who gets to dole out punishments on any given day's whim. Who doesn't obviously ask himself what he can do to get the media's attention on a regular basis.”

“We're talking about convicted felons son that have no rights, it's different for law-abiding citizens who are industrious and work to keep the U.S. where it is. They should have even less rights then they have now. How about taking away phone and visitation privileges or substantially reducing them? The harder it is on them, the better.”

arx754 on Dec 1, 2013 at 09:39:03

“"In 1997, Amnesty International published a report on Arpaio's jails which found that Tent City is not an "adequate or humane alternative to housing inmates in suitable ... jail facilities."

"Tent City is criticized by groups contending that there are violations of human and constitutional rights.

"Those critical of Arpaio also point out that the VAST MAJORITY of inmates within Tent City HAVE NOT BEEN CONVICTED, rather, they are merely awaiting trial.

(Tony Ortega (1997-09-18). "Human Plights - Page 1 - News - Phoenix". Phoenix New Times).

("Blog of Rights: Official Blog of the American Civil Liberties Union » Sheriff Joe's Inhumane Circus". Aclu.org)

("Migration - U.S: Arizona Prisoners on Lockdown Amid Hunger Strike - IPS". Ipsnews.net. 2009-05-20).

It's a county jail. NOT a prison. And, "vast majority" are awaiting trial which means they're NOT "convicted felons".

And, the truth is that you and others, who applaud Arpaio, do so because you believe (rightly or wrongly) that the prisoners are Mexican. And, whether legal or undocumented, you don't give a damn either way. The fact that they're Mexican is why you not only don't care how they're treated, you enjoy the fact that they're treated badly.

And, btw, by your phrasing, it's apparent you're a Republican. So, you one of those "Christian" ones, huh? No doubt.”

“I think DiCaprio is one of the most underrated actors in film. His nuance, preparation and merger into character is amazing and yet he either shuns the spotlight or is simply not brought to everyone's attention. You never see paparazzi following him as well. Sean Penn is another.”
