"Chief Townsend believes it is a huge privacy concern, as officers often see people on their worst days. "People with mental illness, people in domestic violence situations; do we really want to have to put that video out on YouTube for people? I think that's pushing it a little bit," he said."

Ever heard of "Cops"? On TV??

Civility is codeword for "all who agree with me"

Any site that removes comments or participation from "trolls" would most certainly end up restricting comment from those who don't agree. Take Climate Change for example. How many news sites have stated that they won't "allow" the deniers AKA those who disagree, to post.

Really? Falsifiable and tested??

Says who? You?

You never did mention that CO2 is only about 0.039% of the atmosphere and is just a TRACE gas. You forgot to mention that the IPCC has stated publicly that there has been no significant warming in over 17 years.

Never mind. The sky is still falling. Eat your bug protein and pay your carbon credits while Al Gore and those like him laugh at you in their million dollar carbon spewing mansions, eating Steak and Caviar while they drop your money into their bank accounts to pay for seaside properties they claimed would be inundated by the flooding waters due to global warming.

Stay asleep and stay stupid.

I keep hearing this nonsense about "sustainable" food. All of our current food is sustainable, otherwise our grocery stores would be empty.
Isn't what you really mean about "sustainable" food is that it's food for the poor people while REAL food like meats and cheeses and fresh vegetables are for the elite while we poor people should be relegated to the processed junk food and imitation soybean meats along with the GMO's?

According to the article, the people were given information that basically said. "You can't prove autism is from vaccinations" and the rest was scare tactics. Photos of kids suffering from the afflictions the vaccines purport to prevent.

How is this any different than the religious argument?

You can't prove God doesn't exist. This is what happens in hell.

My body belongs to me. You shouldn't worry if I don't get vaccinated if you have been vaccinated... Right? You shouldn't worry if my child hasn't been vaccinated if your child has been vaccinated... Right?

Sigmund Freud is alleged to have said that in the last analysis the entire field of psychology may reduce to biological electrochemistry.
