What a fucking travesty.  While the Judge is correct in "But the judge said that as other officers had fired in a 137-shot barrage, he could not rule beyond reasonable doubt that Mr Brelo was responsible for the deaths." that doesn't stop Judges and prosecutors outside cops in these cases, i.e. you rob a bank and your partner shoots somebody, you go down for murder also.  Should have tossed every officer who fired a round in jail.

So at the end I think he is like George bush sentiment. Good to have beer with but complete asshole/bitch outside that. Still movie was good, not sure why all the hate when it first came out.

Not a fan of the manslaughter charge here, not her fault he OD'ed and she's under no moral obligation to help him.  Makes her a shitty person sure but criminal, no (or shouldn't).

Great quote today about doing AARs: "Employees directly involved in the event did not expect that the accident was going to happen. They expected a positive outcome. If this is not the case, then you’re not dealing with an accident."

While I agree it's usually a truism and best to assume this, where it fails and fails hard is "expected" as expectations are irrelevant most of the time as the real answer usually turns out to be "didn't think about it" or "not qualified to even have a relevant expectation so shouldn't have proceeded"

Yep'er it's a great read and their heart is in the right place, but it's written from a position of power, i.e. it's not worth squat when shit really hits the fan.

The key sentence is "Authorities had anticipated trouble and pre-positioned officers." ... goes to show the age old adage when seconds/minutes count cops are hours away. oh wait strike that, I mean "When there actually is a chance of real danger beyond defenseless puppies cops prove their true colors, hiding and cowering like the pussy bully bitches they are"

PS: I am curious in the end who goes to jail for more than a year, I'm thinking nobody. My gut tells me nobody seen a thing and every witness will have s counter witness and everybody will say self defense, will be interesting see hoeing this pans out.
Gunfire erupted Sunday among rival biker gangs in Waco, Texas, leaving at least nine people dead, according to police.

Agree, I'm still waiting to see how this turns out once all the hype dies.  No way they are tossing 170 dudes in jail for murder.

So what I hate about this story is folk don't hammer Obama on his blatant lies.  The key sentence in this story is "The operation was authorised by President Barack Obama and was carried out by forces based in Iraq." ... wait didn't Obama tell us numerous we had no more boots on the ground in Iraq and all combat forces were removed?

US special forces have killed an Islamic State commander with a key role in oil and gas operations in a rare raid in eastern Syria, the Pentagon says.

62% is not "overwhelmingly", not even a super majority.

I'm only sharing this because it's something that lots of race baiters and lefties are missing, OMG's aren't necessarily uniformed ethnic or gender in nature.  While not denying the majority are white male they don't get, as progressives are suggesting, special preferential treatment because they aren't black. 
Police in Texas call on members of rival motorcycle gangs to stop fighting after a shoot-out at the weekend left nine dead.

This isn't going to end well, blowing up means and methods rarely works to stemmy highly profitable illicit activities, it simply increase cost and risk to the customers.

Now that isn't to say "can't work" it's just the EU doesn't have the stomach or will to do it.  Salting Carthage works, Tito and Stalin work, ISIS and Taliban work, bombing some boats for a PR stunt does not.

EU foreign and defence ministers are expected to approve a mission in the Mediterranean to destroy boats used by people-smugglers operating in Libya.

Introduction
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." --C.S. Lewis
