“So if a thug is viciously attacking and injuring you for calling 911, then you DESERVE it.
Gotcha-- we got a black president, and so now the country is under a formal "no snitching" rule.
Just like the Cambridge Police "acted stupidly," but it's ok for Black Panthers to intimidate white voters like the KKK did to blacks.”
“Maher's not a clown, that's his real face-- he was BORN looking like Bozo.
Maher clearly is a neglected man-child who's screaming for attention, as well as saying foul and forbidden things in order to gain a sense of power by shock and rebellion.
He thinks that both make him bold and admirable, but they just show him to be cheap and anti-social, like every kid who misbehaves.”
“Well to be funny, you have to be clever and original, not just be a child who does something banal and disgusting to get attention.
Maher is clearly mental, and the faces he makes when ranting are those of a toddler having a tantrum.”

“I hope you don't consider yourself funny. You're as funny as a snakebite.”
“I'd love to see Maher burn a Koran because he doesn't believe in that either.
Obviously he's just a coward who only insults those whom he thinks can't or won't hurt him back.”

“He's never burned a bible, why would he burn a koran? Why would he burn any book? Because he disagrees with what's on their pages and makes fun of them? Book burning is what rightwing fundamentalists do, not left-liberarians like Maher.
Maher's a comedian. That's what he gets paid to do.
ps... You're not a comedian and it shows in your attempts. You just come off as angry, not funny.”

“Mahr has taken on the Muslims often, better look for yourself”
“Maher is simply a child who whines and curses in order create shock and outrage among adults, feeling a sense of power and independence as a result-- and of course feeling pleased and clever as a result.
The natural response, therefore, is to DENY him this, but simply remove the reward by cancelling HBO (everything on it can be downloaded on torrent anyway), and inform the child that this is a sign of weakness and immaturity, and thus a sign of poor breeding rather than any unique or special merit.”

“Damn. You let Bill S*** in your Cheerios today...I love Bill Maher and why it's because he tells it like it is. It's his opinion.....And he doesn't candy coat it...Like I tell everyone I know. Do you want to hear the Truth. Yes or No if you answer yes you will get the truth and why is that, Because I won't lie to you and candy coat it. No then I don't say a word.”

“LOL! Maher pushes every one of your buttons, and you let him.”
“This is good:
"Rackauckas: The police force is there to protect and serve and, in general, that's what they do. And they do it at the highest level."
Sure-- it was just PURE CHANCE that SIX of their cops just HAPPENED to beat a man to death, or stood by as ACCOMPLICES by act of omission doing nothing, or to protect the ones that did.
Sorry, that's MATHEMATICALLY IMPOSSIBLE.
If you can get six cops at random in one place who would do that, then by simple probability ALL of them are the same way!
How DUMB does this DA think we are?”

Thanks for your comment.
Having spoken to Mr. Rackauckas personally, I must say that I was really surprised by his forthrightness. I usually "read" people very well and I believe that he means what he has said.
On the other hand, I am sorry to say that I did not feel the need to write about Kelly Thomas' death in July, 2011, when it occurred because I know about so much violence against homeless people.
It is only after the recent Preliminary Hearing whereby 2 officers were bound over to be arraigned, and I was invited to to be on a radio program, that I finally wrote something about Kelly.
So, I appreciate your views.
Do think people can change about inflicting pain upon homeless people?
“It's not just that some cops did nothing, it's that they prevented anyone ELSE from doing anything to stop them. If 2 cops are beating someone then the public might step in; but if it's six, then never.
And the public DOES have the right to arrest cops who are breaking the law!
The fact is that cops ALWAYS defend each other even when they commit murder; American cops are no different than the Gestapo, it's the same elite mentality.”

Thanks for your comment.
You make a good point - few of us will interfere when there is police activity, especially when there are 6 officers involved.
And I think we would all agree that we have the right to arrest and prosecute police officers who break the law.
Mr. Rackauckas says as much as this in this interview.
