I agree with your advice.....though all those people saying "quite your bitching" comes to mind. Looks like we didn't "bitch" enough.
Looks like freedom of speech is being phased out huh....like the US can arrest people for political literature, for talking about things...talking....
Yes, land of the free people defend as such.....and those who speak about things others might not agree with....they are free as well when they get arrested.
Democracy is a thing of the past.
Because people didn't listen to our warnings. Now we have to listen to theirs.
No offence Darren I don't know what your stance is on the issue of free speech. I just saw your post and It really hit home.
Hail our great leaders, or they will make you disappear, like those dictatorships we spend decades invading.

I believe that the media is twisting this story for some reason. Too much info is left out. First off where is the gun? Why not give the type of gun used? That tells us if its even possible. No gun someone else did it period, but that doesn't mean a cop did it. Was the window down? Was their any people or cars around? Was it possible a silencer was used do to only a thump was heard, or was a shot heard? It's hard for me to believe a cop is that stupid that he would believe he could get by with that story and no forensic evidence to back it up, There is more to this story, i am sure of it.
I posted the article on my FB page earlier this evening to... surprise... no responses.

So when George Zimmerman kills an unarmed black teen, the media is ALL over it
But when our police officers do the same-- to an unarmed black teen who is handcuffed-- silence.
The vast majority don't care and won't care until it is someone they know.
This is a very good indicator they are programming people with half truths and thought terminating cliches.
That our deaths are just political pawns, and when it suits them, they play it, and when it doesn't, they hold it back.
They actually believe we are sub humans and our existence only serves to benefit them.
We ought to cut them off and stop feeding this horrific machine that enslaves all peoples with lies.
A police report obtained by KAIT indicated that 21-year-old Chavis Chacobie Carter had been a passenger in a pickup truck when Officer Ron Marsh found “some marijuana” and plastic baggies in his possession. Marsh also determined that Carter had been wanted on a warrant after he missed a court date for drug charges in DeSoto County, Mississippi.
Marsh then had Carter “exit the patrol unit, placed him into handcuffs, searched him a second time then placed him into the back seat of the patrol unit.”
Jonesboro Police Sergeant Lyle Waterworth told WREG that Carter had been “handcuffed behind his back and double locked, and searched.”
At that point, Officer Keith Baggett believed a passing car ran over a piece of metal in the road because he heard “a loud thump with a metallic sound.” Baggett said he then heard “several thumps” after Marsh released the two other suspects. Marsh motioned Baggett over to the patrol car and said the 21-year-old had shot himself.
When the officers opened the patrol car door, they found Carter in a “sitting position slumped forward with his head in his lap.” The report indicated that Carter was still handcuffed and a small caliber handgun was sitting beside him.
Carter was taking to St. Bernards Regional Medical Center and later died from the gunshot wound.
Point: The cops say they placed Carter into the backseat of their car but it would appear he was not in cuffs. It was only after they ran his info and determined he had the warrant they took him back out to place him in cuffs and search him again. This means that while Marsh was running him info (I have to assume he did this from the front seat of the patrol car), Carter was sitting in the back seat, with no cuffs on, potentially holding a gun.
