“" Therefore the charge would be inability to execute the duties of office to the satisfaction of the people."
and exactly who files that charge where?
is there a 1-800 number for that?”

“I think you're mistaking removing a person from office for criminal charges. No one thinks he should be brought up on criminal charges and if they do then they have some issues they need to have checked.
However, he is a public servant and as such if the public is not satisfied that he is capable of doing his job properly then the public needs to have a way to remove him from that position.
The same way the impeachment of President Clinton happened over Monica-gate, this police commissioner needs to understand that he has a moral obligation to his office to be unbiased and he is not showing he is able to meet that obligation.”
“what charge would you have the NH legislature bring forth?”

“As police commissioner in the area he is required to be unbiased or else all arrests made by his department can be legally questioned.
Therefore for him as a representative of law enforcement and protection of the people to publicly voice that opinion shows he is not unbiased and cannot fulfill the duties assigned him by his position.
Had he made the statements privately and apologized publicly the matter would be slightly different, but he is publicly defending his statements and showing no remorse or even restraint.
Therefore the charge would be inability to execute the duties of office to the satisfaction of the people.
A vote of no confidence if you will.”

“Unbecoming behavior from an official to start with. You have a certain responsibility of decorum when in the public's service.”
“perhaps Auletta's report isn't quite the whole truth-------
" Reached for comment on Thompson's memo, Murphy told POLITICO that salary only accounted for a portion of Abramson's total compensation.
"The numbers in Ken Auletta's piece represent salaries, which are one part of executive compensation at The New York Times Company," Murphy said. "Managers and executives at The New York Times receive compensation packages that include salary, bonus and equity. The combination of those things equals that executive's total pay. That is the relevant figure for Jill during her time here."
"There are employees who are salaried-only, and in those cases, salary is the relevant metric," Murphy continued. "Again, [that is] not applicable to Jill, Bill Keller or any of the other folks mentioned in the [New Yorker] piece. Jill was paid more in 2013 than Bill Keller was paid in any year that he served as executive editor."

“well for one thing Greenwald's claim that Obama was guilty of murder for the killing of Anwar al-Awlaki was so unsound that greenwald was forced, after the reaction from more learned attorneys, to withdraw the claim.
for another, I know, because my kid was one of his editors on The Guardian, that Greenwald would have printed information that would have endangered people still deployed in the field.
i must add, that, to his credit, Greenwald withdrew the information when the danger was pointed out to him.”
“you should take steps to learn some logic and cease making comments worthy of a dullard.
you can't hit a cop doing his job....and there's no other issue, Bunny.”

“You wont quit your ignorance will you Dillard. Answer the question. If she pointed a gun at him would she or should she have been charged? If your answer is yes, then all the Bundyville militia should be held right now. If no then it shows that our law enforcement is nothing but the extension of our oligarchy.
Quit dodging the issue and answer the question. You wont because it's either pure ignorance or a fear of dealing with the facts because you are proven wrong.
Everything is related whether you want to admit it or not.
You can't point a gun at a cop doing his job...and there 's plenty of issues, Leslie.”
“sonny, that OWS trespassers were hustled out of the park has nothing to do with your complaint about militia members.
I ignored that crud because it's an irrelevant and juvenile diversion.
you might just as well whine that we can't arrest people who assault cops because pedophiles are walking free or because we haven't stopped farmers from paying illegals exploitation wages.”

“Has everything to do with it Buffy. Why are rules different for some? How can these militia threaten a cop with death but these OWS get arrested? I'll answer that for you. Because these cops were protecting our masters on Wall Street.
So you believe (regardless if she's guilty or not) she should have just pulled a weapon on him and threaten him and she shouldn't face any charges?”
“I don't give a spit about your boasting, Blanche. i care that people know what self-defense means and that they're not too flippin ignorant to realize that you don't have a right to resist a lawful order from a cop and you dang sure aren't justified in hitting a cop performing his duty.”

“So you watched a grainy video and figured out that this woman resisted a lawful order from a cop and didn't simply react to a person who had grabbed her breast in a painful manner (whether intentionally or not). Well I guess you must have access to the NCIS digitally enhanced version of the video because I sure didn't see all that when I watched it. Please send me that version as the one I reviewed was obviously much inferior to the hi res one that you must have been watching.”
“yup. she was offered a plea and turned down both the plea and any further discussion of a plea.
she demanded a jury trial and the ignorant and self-righteous woman got what she earned”

“Most people don't understand the set up of the system unless they work in it or have been through it. It's a gamble when dealing with a jury....especially when a defendant doesn't have any money to hire a well dressed criminal defense attorney. It's probably safe to say that because her case involved a cop, she didn't have much of a chance to begin with.”
