“It's not that I disagree with you, but it doesn't help to oversimplify. Michael Vick was sentenced to prison for the horrific act of torturing innocent dogs. He has served his time and has rightfully been given a 2nd chance. I feel with you that Marissa Alexander got a raw deal. She is not a criminal, and I too feel that she should be pardoned. Ironically, she was prosecuted by the same Atty. General that prosecuted Zimm.”

“In all seriousness, the NRA was the first to advocate that black people arm themselves to deter racially motivated crime against their families.  In TX the biggest demographic that applies for concealed carry is black women. Nothing wrong with citizens having protection.”

JeanRR on Jan 12, 2013 at 12:19:57

“Did you get your information from Alex Jones? In 2011, 1.68% of concealed carry permits in Texas were issued to Black females, 19.16% to White females, and 67.33% to White males. This is according to the Texas Department of Public Safety

“Oh yeah, never mind all those gangbangers that killed 500 of each other last year... I guess those were NRA members?”

“I'm not so sure. Whether or not he is guilty, NBC intentionally manipulated the tape in order to portray him in a bad light. They knowingly edited said tape in a way that they knew would make Zimm's comments seem more controversial. They fanned the flames of racial tension in doing so. What they did was reckless and unethical and he deserves an answer from the network.”

“If you wanted a more sophisticated explanation, I would offer that the CPS Board is comprised of billionaires from local corporations. These people represent the privatization of education, i.e. turning neighborhood schools into charter schools, which in essence funnel public funds into private interests. There are pros/cons to charter schools, but that is a diff. argument. Finally, Rahm is a bully. He likes an easy target, like Chik-Fil-A. He won't get tough on gangbangers, nor will he get tough on illegals, but he'll damn sure take on those teachers! He tried to channel Scott Walker, but Karen Lewis has outclassed him. Funny, if you think about it...”

“Or better yet: give teachers/principals the authority to kick out troublemakers. Let those students who would disrupt, assault, vandalize, and cause mayhem do farmwork, or let them join the military. Our schools are no longer places that cater to those students who are intellectually curious.”

Hiyall on Sep 15, 2012 at 18:36:07

“You can't kick out kids who have been left behind by their own families. This issue is complicated, and has as much to do with poverty, wages and drugs as it does with books. Teachers have been blamed for all of it, hence the strike.”

“I teach in the suburbs but have several friends who teach in CPS. The strike is more or less the culmination of bullying on the part of the board. The teachers are not taken seriously (and some of them deserve not to be, let's face it) but this strike reveals that Rahm overplayed his hand and is now backed into a corner. It's not just about compensation, but working conditions, which range from uncomfy to horrific. And no teacher wants to put their job security in the hands of gangbangers or ghetto kids who don't embrace academic success. The sad part: those few decent kids who really do want to learn but are trapped in ghetto areas.”

“Wait, what? Is the average taxpayer in Chicago even halfway educated? Are you going to resent that an educated teacher who worked hard in whatever background they came from, is earning more than some single mother on welfare or some illegal immigrant working in a factory? Do you feel the same way about politicians earning 5 times a teacher's salary? Turn off Fox News!”
