Mitt Romney Rips Anti-Obama Police Official's 'Vile Epithet,' Calls On Him To Resign

Mitt Romney Rips Anti-Obama Police Official's 'Vile Epithet,' Calls On Him To Resign

“I'm not misunderstanding Doug, I'm asking you to explain the process and the venue where complaints of dissatisfaction with this dipstick cop would be undertaken.

it's one thing to say that people are repulsed by his comments and ideas, but how and where does public sentiment get acted upon in this instance?”

JinHoshi on May 20, 2014 at 19:07:26

“At the moment they really don't have a way that I know of other than to publicly demand he resign.

That's why there needs to be a way that the people can bring a vote of no confidence in their jurisdictions, it just has to be created for these situations first.

I think it would have to be done the way the WhiteHouse.gov petitions are, but with a lower needed number of signatures for a response since we're talking on a city level and not national.”

“" 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?”

JinHoshi on May 20, 2014 at 16:20:35

“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?”

JinHoshi on May 20, 2014 at 12:06:59

“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."

some things deserve to get buried and it's not usual practice at The Guardian US or any other paper, Greenwald tends to be more of an advocate than a fount of absolute truth.”

“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.”

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.

“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?”
