2 NYC cops ambushed, killed

The people of NYC called for this just last week. "What do we want? Dead cops!"

NLRB alleges that McDonald's Corp. violates workers rights

But then again, the NLRB is biased and corrupt, has no credibility, and cannot be taken seriously

Cops: Victim may have shot himself on South Side

Are we lucky enough that he wounded himself to the extent he won't be able to procreate??

Senate report: Harsh CIA tactics didn't work

Where are the 6 year studies and the 6700 page reports detailing the treatment of prisoners and enemies by the Islamic Nations, Korea, , Russia, etc? When I see these reports first, I will then begin to consider reading the report about the USA. Until that time, this is nothing but political BS.

Cops kill 400 each year, but only handful indicted

Oooops....sorry....one correction.

The number of 50 officers killed is for 2014 not 2013.

Cops kill 400 each year, but only handful indicted

In 2013 50 police officers were killed by violent homicide in the line of duty, and there are roughly 800,000 police officers nationwide. There are also about 350,000,000 people in the USA (counting illegal aliens).

400 civilian deaths out of 350,000,000 people translates to 1.14 deaths per million.

50 officer deaths out of 800,000 officers translates to 62.5 deaths per million.

The civilians is the USA kill police officers at a rate 55 times higher than the rate the police kill civilians; and none of the police deaths are ever justifiable homicide, whereas nearly all the civilian deaths are actually justifiable in that the officer is responding in self-defense.

So……..who has the most right to be wary of who here????

Trumbull health board to provide overdose-reducing drug

LtMacGowan

I have been the guy that rolls out of bed at 3:00 AM to handle emergency medical problems in my community. I have been the guy that pulls people out of their wrecked vehicles, trying to get them to the hospital before they die. I have been the guy trying (unsuccessfully) to resuscitate the 18 year old heroin overdose in their home while their parent watches. Have you??

Maybe you can go talk to the parents of the 5 year old drive-by-shooting victim who dies in a hail of bullets fired by the gangsters in her neighborhood fighting over the “business” provided by the local heroin users. Maybe you can go talk to the children of the convenience store clerk killed while being robbed by a junky trying to score for his next fix. Maybe you can talk to the husband and children of the wife and mother killed in the roadway by a user who was too high to stay on his side of the street. Maybe you can explain to these people how you support a policy that perpetuates the drug trade and makes it easier for the users to continue using; because you thought it was the right thing to do.

No, I cannot tell you what next week's lottery numbers will be………………but I can tell you with great assurance that if you play the lottery the odds are stacked against you, if will cost more than it returns; and, like trying to save drug addicts from themselves, you will lose and sacrifice more than you gain.

Go ahead, tell me how I am heartless and cruel. Reality is far more heartless and cruel than me.

Trumbull health board to provide overdose-reducing drug

LtMacGowan

Your analogy to appendicitis is not relevant; and you also know that if we save addicts from the consequences of what they choose to do, turning them loose in the streets to continue supporting the drug trade, it is only a matter of time until more innocent people get killed....by the addicts or by the dealers.

But let's move on to the other questions:

Why is it a good thing for us to expend resources supporting the drug trade? This effort is exactly that, support for the drug trade.

What is going to happen when the first 50 kits are gone? Will the taxpayers then be obliged to buy and provide 50 more.....100 more.....1000 more??? What happens when these are gone?

The point is that this solves nothing; it is an emotional knee-jerk reaction that actually contributes-to and perpetuates the problem.

Are we ready to make the addicts take responsibility for themselves in exchange for the free Narcan?

Trumbull health board to provide overdose-reducing drug

Why?

What is going to happen when the 50 kits are gone?

When the addict who is "saved" this week kills someone next week, who will explain to the victim's family how this was a good idea?

What is good about providing material assistance to the drug trade?

Obama to spare 5M from deportation

Obama is obviously engaging in this outlandish illegal and unconstitutional act to bait conservatives and Republicans into taking some retaliatory action which his regime hopes to use to gain propaganda advantage. My recommendation is to not take the bait. Do nothing. Let him issue his executive order and let him issue the work permits.

In two years we have a new president, we rescind the executive order, we rescind the work permits, and we translate the list of rescinded work permits into a nice alphabetized list of ILLEGAL ALIENS (they will still be illegal) ready for deportation.
