Tyre Nichols alleged murderers’ audio has now been synced.

There is zero justification. Once you have the guy under control cuff him and back off.

I don't think NCH was justifying anything. He was just questioning what precipitated the whole thing and suggested we wait for all the evidence.
Thank you. The obsession that is political correctness of looking at things in black and white is quite annoying.

Just saying that people act differently when they’ve been pepper sprayed, led on high speed chases, and someone won’t just stfu and comply. I get it and that’s why I couldn’t do that job. We are missing extremely important information and the chief of police is in an adversarial position towards the cops as far as i’m concerned and isn’t going to be upfront about anything.

You could be one of the few people in the world trying to find justification for the savage beating that took place. There is no reasonable justification period. I’m not surprised that you are making these comments. It is easy to see where you are coming from just by recalling your antisemitic comments you have made in past posts. Just leads me to believe that you are one sad individual.

Let's dig the slave owners up out of their graves and tell them to pay up.

Otherwise, I think you should bear the responsibility. You are a Democrat. Democrats are the perpetrators of slavery, Jim Crow, the KKK, racism, the current push for more racism, and nearly every policy that we see destroying the neighborhoods of blacks in our cities.

You are far more responsible for slavery and its fallout compared to anyone who might currently live in a former slave state.

Democrats should pay for the reparations. Let's tax by political affiliation. Would be far more equitable.
.....and more reparations because there are more registered Democrats. Makes sense to me. A win win for Paoli.

I don't know what happened that led up to this incident but I did listen to the chief of police who said that there doesn't seem to be anything major that led up to the beating. Besides, I don't believe that anything he might have done could in anyway ever justify five... 200lb men beating the shit out of a 150 lb helpless man Did you actually watch the video where he is calling for his mother and pleading for help? I don't know what transpired before the video was made... however I would really be interested if you could provide a scenario where that beating would ever be justified. Especially for a possible traffic stop violation. Even if the police were having a particulary bad day for what ever reason... that is no excuse for taking it out on a victim that posed no physical threat to them. I will wait for you to describe a scenario that could in any way justify their actions.
Where beating someone like that is justified? Justified isn’t the word. You’re just baiting me. I support manslaughter convictions based on the videos.

Again, I just don’t see these 5 as people we should rush to judgement on because police officer in memphis sounds like just a god awful job. You’re basically in combat mode. I want to know their history.

It was illegal in most of the north. There were 16-17 slave states where it was legal and heavily protected. 99% of the slavery happened in these areas and they should bear the responsibility

Video of GOP official calling colleague an alcoholic slut leads to civil war among NV Republicans

TheCriticalMind

ScreenShot2023-01-27at4.26.33PM.png

Michele Fiore is a typical Nevada Republican

For years, Republicans had a reputation for party unity — while the ever-squabbling Democrats were the butt of herding cats jokes. A century ago, Will Rogers observed, “I am not a member of any organized political party. I am a Democrat.” And ever since, Democrats have celebrated many defeats as “moral victories” while they never missed an opportunity to miss an opportunity. Times have changed. Strife has upended that political calculus. And the GOP can thank their boy Trump for the divisive chaos of the civil war between the far-right center and ultra-right crazies.

Nowhere is this knives-out approach to intraparty politics more evident and eloquently expressed than in the desert South West.

Last fall, during a meeting of the Clark County (essentially Greater Las Vegas) Republicans, the gloves were off. Their losing 2022 state treasurer candidate, Michele Fiore, took vulgar shots at ex-state GOP Chair Amy Tarkanian. Michele called Amy “Ms. Alcoholic” and a “panty dropper after two shots." Fiore was pissed that Tarkanian had endorsed her Democratic rival.

Tarkanian refused to support Fiore’s campaign to be the state’s CFO due to Fiore’s history of IRS tax liens, which she had blamed on her ex-husband. And because the Nevada Department of Health had voided Fiore's license to operate ‘Always There 4 You’ a home healthcare service. Fiore had shuttered the business and refused to respond to the state’s request to audit her for possible Medicaid irregularities. To ice her fruitcake, Fiore compared herself to Rosa Parks — probably because she was irate that the state was denying her civil right to be a crook.

Fiore, a second amendment absolutist, had also gained notoriety with her Christmas card featuring her family, including small children, brandishing weapons to celebrate the Prince of Peace’s birthday.

In calling Tarkanian an alcoholic slut, Fiore forgot one of the cardinal rules of politics — assume someone is recording you. Fellow Republican, Drew Hirsty, videoed her remarks and sent them to Margaret White, another member of the Clark County Republican Party, who in turn sent the video to everyone.

On Jan 14, 2023, the state Republican Party Central Committee expelled Hirsty. And the bookies have him and White as a lock to be given the boot by the Clark County GOP. Because, in the Republican universe, the sinner is not the criminal but the one who publicizes the crime.

It was not all bad news for Nevada Republicans. They won back the offices of the Governor, Lt. Governor, and Controller. And they did better than their Republican neighbors in Arizona.

There the GOP, spearheaded by failed gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake in cahoots with GOP State Chair Kelli Ward, has been casting doubts on elections since Trump’s failure in 2020. Election-denier non-pareil Ward famously hired Cyber Ninjas to ‘prove’ the Democrats had rigged the 2020 election in Maricopa County. Their failure was public and ignominious.

Ward also took the fifth when the Jan 6 Committee wanted her to answer a few questions. What dirty deeds is she keeping in the dark? ~Whatever they are, they are not the only thing she is hiding. In 2021, after she won re-election to the GOP state Chair — on a second close ballot — in an election hidden from the press, she refused to allow an audit. Who is the election rigger? Hypocrisy aside, Ward is still swinging.

But for how much longer? Arizonan voters showed what they thought of the GOP’s 'fixed election' OCD by returning the US Senate seat and top state-wide offices to the Democrats. And the Republicans cannot move beyond their insanity. What should have been a straightforward election to pick the Maricopa Couty GOP Chair descended into barking madness. How many failures can the GOP survive?

We will have to see if the GOP recovers from Trumpism. And if it rediscovers that haters can do so much harm if they are united. However, the depth of crazy in cactus country is profound. It is probably too late to put that genie back in the bottle.

Let’s not revisit past threads that were clearly misinterpreted. Just out of curiosity, are you fully aware of what happened leading up to this or completely ignorant?

We don’t have enough information to make the assumption that the driver was simply on his way home from church and all of a sudden got high on PCP and decided to put everyone’s life in danger.

Biden Admin, Dept of Interior report explains why gas prices are so high.

The report deals with the scheduling of drilling leases, particularly for offshore reserves (of which there has been exactly one thus far during Biden’s time in office) and how the White House plans to handle such auctions in the coming years. Tucked away in the lengthy document is a direct acknowledgment that energy prices would come down if leases were being offered on a normal schedule, but the administration is still considering a plan where the number of auctions might be… zero.

“New OCS [Outer Continental Shelf] oil and natural gas production … lowers the price consumers pay and producers receive.”

So Joe Biden’s own Interior Department (headed up by Deb Haaland) is admitting in official documentation that if they were holding these auctions as required by federal law, not only would the cost to consumers be lower, but it would drive down the profits of the energy companies that Biden is complaining about so loudly.
This is lies, all lies. We all know that the real culprit in high energy prices are the evil greedy oil companies. We know that because that’s what Magoo and his lovely press secretary said🤷🏼‍♀️

The US government pays a lot of reparations. The fact that they did nothing for the slaves after the civil war is pretty fvcking insane, don’t think you think?
The US Goverment gave the slaves the greatest reparation......their freedom. My friend. Let's just agree to disagree. If you feel this strongly for reparations, vote for the candidates who advocate it. I will vote for those who don't.

Was there any doubt this was coming?

My friend. Families of murder victims aren't and can never be made whole because their loved one is gone forever. Slaves can never be made whole for the years lost an the lives lost from slavery. Slavery in this country was tragic. But we would only add to that tragedy by having innocent tax papers pay reparations. Again, if you start this snowball down the hill, it will turn into an avalanche. Will Jewish people demand reparations from Germany. Will the Chinese demand reparations from the Japanese for years of oppression and torture. Where would it end?

My friend. Slavery existed everywhere in the US pre Civil War.

That's already happening in spades. What do you think is the effect of negative real interest rates, or inflation on pensions?

When government spends money it does not have it creates that money through the Treasury and Federal Reserve Bank. This in turn induces inflation unless that money is backed up by real productivity gains.

Since this administration's policies are anti-growth, what we got is what can be expected when they took office -- inflation -- essentially the return of money previously earned.

In short, bank accounts are already being "repatriated." Your party wants to do more -- taking from those who produced and giving that money to those who did not produce. You can tax through the IRS or through inflation. Democrats are doing it through the latter because they made a 400 K$ promise, and because they cannot help themselves but to grow the role of government.

And this money is going to african americans???
