“Because making sure people that were horrifically abused for 400 years at the very least have basic necessities (like all the white people on federal aid get) is a bad thing?
"How dare 'those people' get the same thing poor white people get"”

“The Posse Comitatus anti-government movement has its roots in reconstruction era racism. The Posse Comitatus Act (of 1878) was cooked up by southern U.S. lawmakers (under the banner of "States Rights") as a way of ending the occupation of southern states by federal troops (after the Civil War). The Act elevated the power of the local county sheriff above the federal government (for all local law enforcement). This act made it illegal for the federal government to use its troops to enforce local ordinances and resulted in federal troops being removed from the southern states where they were acting as a police force. Once the troops were gone, the local counties were free to enact the pernicious Jim Crow laws that disenfranchised newly freed slaves in many ways as much as slavery itself did. Those laws stayed intact until the Civil Right Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 made them illegal. Bundy and his ilk are what is left of that movement and their underlying goal is still essentially the same: white supremacy.”

“Between the end of sIavery and The Civil Rights Act. It's a straight line”

“1. Cell service is non-existent over open water unless you have a GPS phone and even then you may not have luck inside a metal tube. 2. Unless the plane had wi-fi and it was turned on and working, no communication would be able to be made.”

“The old guy had choices. He could have gone into the store , turned on his own radio, parked somewhere else, ignore it. He was angry before he stopped at the store and the loud music issue was a reason to act on his anger probably stemming from the family wedding. Like to see the prosecution do a better job. The detectives appear to be doing a better job of interrogating.”
“Whats the purpose of hunting these days, you don't need to hunt for food and the lion wasn't a threat, don't understand the passion for this activity.”

“I don't hunt. Not my cup of tea but just because I don't does not mean I have the right to keep others from doing what they enjoy. I don't understand the passion for a lot of activities others seem to but I don't try and judge them either. Hunting in S Africa brings in a lot of revenue for a nation desperate for cash. Sitting in your living room making judgments on a way of life far removed from you world is arrogant.”

“fanned...and especially from supposedly intelligent woman. She should know the impact in killing male lion in almost endangered species..but you know she had cool picture on Twiter - so it was probably all worth it...”
“This is a horrible happening and should be investigated . But it is also time for the Black community to have the guts to protest Black youth killing each other more loudly the way they do when its a racial case. a Black woman.”
“Why are there school shootings in the 21st century?? This was never an issue when I was in school in the 50's and 60's . Perhaps More money and access for guns ??There has always been mental illness. But the more horrendous crimes have been done by the upper middle class and the rich and powerful. Why??”

“I believe with the rise in population comes the rise in gun violence. Horrendous crimes are spread across all classes, although lower class have taken the brunt of that allegation.

“There was greater access to guns in the 50-60s. When I was in high school in the mid-late 80s in suburban Denver, we took our rifles and shotguns to school in the fall so we could go hunting immediately after school. Nothing happened, I wonder why.”

“Are you saying that it is easier to get guns today then it was in the 50 & 60”
poshman2 on Oct 19, 2013 at 19:59:36
“The obvious answer is the ubiquitous nature of guns in the last thirty years.”

“There were plenty of guns around in the 50s and 60s. Many schools had rifle ranges. Perhaps the people have changed?”
R Wintercroft on Oct 19, 2013 at 19:34:47
“It is just as common as today then any time in our country.
I could ask you a hundred questions like this. Why does african american males account for 54% of all homicides but only account 6% of the population.
Or why do we have more serial killers then the rest of the world combine.
In the real world. We are near an all time low in both homicides and violent crime in the history of our country.
But have always been a very violent culture. Remove guns, we will still kill each other, just at a higher rate then now.”
