    And there generally has to be an extremely egregious case of assault on a citizen by a law enforcement officer to get that officer charged with a crime.

    It's happening more often now, because cell phones make cameras more common, and photo evidence is pretty persuasive, particularly when it gets into the news and puts public pressure on prosecutors.

    It's still uncommon but it's increasing. Not surprisingly, police unions are always lobbying to make it illegal to photograph police, for that reason.

    In one case, a union representative argued that body cams on cops can legally only be used to convict citizens of crimes, not police.
    Let's say that I suffer from a delusion. I will call this delusion "Fact-check Syndrome." I respond by citing facts.

    Most people online don't want to be corrected. They do not care about anything that does not agree with them.

    I share your concerns about the police. But I'm talking about Border Patrol asking for documents outside their 100 miles from the border limits.

    Did you ever think you'd see the day when Trump would shaft one of our closest friends and allies as Canada and gush over Kim Jong Un and Putin?

    Trump Was Outfoxed in Singapore

    Trump made a huge concession — the suspension of military exercises with South Korea. That’s on top of the broader concession of the summit meeting itself, security guarantees he gave North Korea and the legitimacy that the summit provides his counterpart, Kim Jong-un.

    Within North Korea, the “very special bond” that Trump claimed to have formed with Kim will be portrayed this way: Kim forced the American president, through his nuclear and missile tests, to accept North Korea as a nuclear equal, to provide security guarantees to North Korea, and to cancel war games with South Korea that the North has protested for decades.

    In exchange for these concessions, Trump seems to have won astonishingly little. In a joint statement, Kim merely “reaffirmed” the same commitment to denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula that North Korea has repeatedly made since 1992.


    Anyone surprised?

    It's all sideways. Don't forget Obama gave Iran at least $400M in cash and allowed them to police their own nuclear activities. I think Trump expects more out of a Western nation than an Eastern dictator. Of course now NK will be allowed to police their own denuclearization (at least no provisions for it in the deal). Then again, Clinton got NK to agree not to test nuclear weapons back in 1994...

    Said an anonymous gov't official back then :

    Ten years from now, we'll know whether we did the right thing.
    Here it is nearly 25 years on and we know the answer to that.

    Who is among you that feareth the Lord, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? let him trust in the name of the Lord, and stay upon his God.

    And let's not forget who sold uranium to the Russians (the very same country we are supposedly at odds with for their meddling in our elections).

    Is this a trick question?

    Up is down and down is up.
    Sigh ... as of 2017, up no longer exists.
    As a nation, we began by declaring that "all men are created equal." We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except negroes."
    When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics."

    Do you know why?

    I think Trump expects more out of a Western nation than an Eastern dictator.
    What does "expects more" translate to? Offering Canada and its leader public insults and trade wars?
