but on it's most underlying level, an unarmed boy was shot by a large adult with a gun and an arrest wasn't made.

Lets be clear... It was an unarmed boy that the man went to the effort of following down the street against the express suggestions of the 911 dispatcher that was telling him he should not follow him. He WENT TO EXTRA EFFORT to follow the boy and shoot him.

What would you say if you got a call from your banker tomorrow saying they lost all your money, but...

"A failure to plan on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part."

The difference between Megaupload and a Banker is that I can't copy my money and then use those copies elsewhere for little to no cost.

Yup. Now all the fanboys see Apple for what they are.

I just laugh at all the comments over the years. Every time Apple applies and gets a new patent, every Apple lover replies with "b-but but but they'll never use them! And they're probably doing it to protect themselves!" or some other lame excuse.

... .No they don't. That's why they're by definition, 'fanboys'. They'll claim that Samsung is infringing upon the Apple patents regardless of prior proof. We've seen Google fanboys do it all over the place whenever someone says something bad about Google or Google does something questionable. A fanboy is a fanboy.
