Torture occurred and we must own up to our actions

The rule of law seems to be very flexible to some people. We tend to shout it from the roof tops when it suits our purpose. When it doesn't we tend to cry about the injustice of it all.
I'm glad that Diane has been able to sooth her concience and clense her soul while those that actually defend the freedoms she enjoys are doing our dirty work in the trenches.
Defending freedom is something the feint of heart and do gooders best leave to the professionals. Sitting down to a cup of tea with ISIS will not get the job done.
Yes war is not pretty. Some like Diane may even say it is immoral. But the mere fact that she is able to enjoy that freedom to ride her high horse of disgust comes on the backs of those who made the ultimate sacrifice and yes people who did what some might describe as immoral.

Emotional Hawkins defends protest T-shirt

Perhaps the Brown's should take on the cause of winning a football game something they haven't seemed to master.
They should leave the administration of justice to those who know it best.
If he wants to be a cop than let him do so.
I find it very interesting that these sports figures who could do so much for the youth of their communities find the time only to wear a t-shirt to create controversy. If he is that worried about his 2 year old he needs only to be a father and instill the child with respect for himself, others and the rule of law. Such a waste of human space when he could do so much more with his time and money.

Horrific torture report findings compromise core values of US

We have elected a class of "kings" those are the politicians who are only in the game to fatten themselves and grab what they can including a lifetime pension on the backs of the taxpayers.
They grant themselves pay raises and exempt themselves from the rules and laws they pass.
Republican or Democrat it's hard to tell the difference as they all have each others back.
To spend $40 million dollars on a report of "enhance interrogation" methods which , right or wrong, ended over five years ago is ridiculous.
When we compare flying airplanes into buildings or sawing off the heads of people. Pouring some water over someones head or sleep deprivation or even the horrid practice of threatening their family member pales by comparison to everyone but the very faint of heart.
So we trash our intelligence agencies and our police departments and our military.
What then, who will keep the wolves from our door? Surely not the candy assed politicians who want to sit down for tea with ISIS and sing cambia.

Youngstown police are investigating a murder on the South Side

"Black lives matter", but to who?
Obviously not to the black community who continue to kill their own at an alarming rate.
As I watch the riots and demonstrations and property destruction I wonder who are these people and what are they saying?
Don't these people have jobs and lives and families?
I wonder who they call when their safety is threatened. Surely they don't call 911 and the very police whom they are attacking.

All talk and no walk.
Is anyone surprised?

Criminal justice has gone wild

Those that would excuse some criminal activity as petty fail to recognize that the criminal himself can increase a minor misdemeanor to a serious felony by resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer.
An unarmed criminal can place himself in serious danger by attempting to take away an officers firearm. That danger could result in deadly force being used against him.
Who than is responsible for the situation which their own actions have created?

Mayor must seek independent probe of behavior of city police

Knowing they are under the microscope of intense public scrutiny. Why do our police departments keep shooting themselves in the foot?
The people who suffer most are the officers just trying to do their job and be fair and professional.
Nothing more...nothing less.

Warren G. Harding High School gets extra security after ‘bad’ fight

Looks like the behavior in the schools is mimicking the behavior we see in the neighborhoods.
No respect for themselves, others or the rule of law.
We are running out of other to blame.
Soon we will end up with only ourselves as the source of our misconduct.

GM solar panel installation in process

Looks like they could have chosen a GM Plant in a part of the Country that has more than a few days of sunshine a year for this expensive project. But then maybe not.

Senate probe catalogs brutal techniques

"Tactics included confinement to small boxes, weeks of sleep deprivation, simulated drowning, slapping and slamming, and threats to kill, harm or sexually abuse families of the captives".

All this seems petty when compared to the horrors waged on people by the terrorists we are fighting.
Being water-boarded was a part of the training given many of our troops me included, prior to deployment to a war zone, for decades. Sleep deprivation is a constant state for our combat troops. Let's talk discomfort to our WWII troops and the Korean vets. Give me a friggin break.
I'm sure these Senators think it much more "civilized" to saw off ones head with a dull hunting knife or drone people from a great distance.
This report is a total embarrassment to those who have fought and bled to keep this Country safe.
I hope the politicians find comfort in having cleared their conscience of this "terrible" injustice.
Perhaps we should pack them all up and let they go over and sit down to tea with the ISIS folks and discuss the relevance of their findings.
