Let's see, we have Mike Brown, who MIGHT have "attacked," though the witnesses are starting to be questionable.

We have a guy that said "I am not going to jail" and did nothing physically and was choked to death.

We have a kid who had a toy gun who was killed withing 5 seconds and was never given a chance to comply.

We have a guy in a wal-mart who had a toy gun and was given less than a SECOND to comply.

The guy in St. Louis who pointed a gun at the gas station... that's a justified one. We don't care about actual attacks.

Again, what you just called for was authoritarianism. A black guy should apparently hit the dirt whenever a cop drives by.

This is coming from a white guy, FUCK YOU, you are part of the problem.. Stop listening to assholes with an agenda like Bill O'Reilly. Learn to do some critical thinking. It's deliciously ironic you accused me of "parroting" when you're the only who can only spout stereotype and hate.

This stinks of another all-or-nothing argument. I would guess that EVERY house will still use mains power. If you can make your own electricity at a decent enough cost it's a net gain, even if you are still connected to the grid. It doesn't solve ALL power problems, but no single system solves all problems.

I read an article on this some time back and I unfortunately can't cite where. It stated that the more expensive hotels actually have lower margins of profit than the cheaper hotels and they can't afford to make those amenities for free. Everything is more expensive for them and the profit is lower, so they tend to nickle-and-dime the fees quite a bit more.

I did not RTFA of course, but another possibility is to give the ability to dump kiddie porn on a target's computer to create more suspicion and give them leverage and a PR boost. I used to think the Police were above such things and that the "plant a gun" meme was rare, but as we have seen in St. Louis and making public records available that show the victim might not be a great guy... maybe this happens more than we think.

Yeah, replying to a troll isn't good, but in a time when most sane people that the power of the police, the SOPs of the police, and the hiring practices of the police need a makeover it is yet another black eye. I support GOOD police officers, but it appears that the bad has penetrated every level of police procedure.

If mathematically you end up with the wrong answer, try multiplying by the page number.
