Another cop gets away with murder…

On Friday, the man who killed Philando Castile was acquited on all charges. For those who are not familiar with this case, Castile was pulled over allegedly for having a burnt out tail light (code word for "driving while black"). The real truth was the officer was confused because after all we know all blacks... Continue Reading →

Under the Rule of the Czar: Week 3

This week started with a major victory for the Trumpster; his favorite quarterback, Tom Brady won yet another Super Bowl (presumably they checked his balls first).  However, members of the alt-right were triggered by the commercials and half time show (did they think they live in a safe space).  All throughout the week, they were...

Choke holds are not appropriate

The Round Rock Police Department says on Thursday afternoon there was a disagreement between two male students. In a press release, RRPD says the Round... Continue Reading →

Shootout in Ferguson

I guess maybe I am being old fashioned.  It seems to me that if one wants to encourage law enforcement to be less brutal, one should not go around shooting a police officers.  Thanks to some shortsighted individual, those who defend the police state tactics employed by the bad apples in the law enforcement community...

Good cops doing good things

The problem with the news media these days is that they constantly concentrate on the negative.  Whenever a cop shoots someone (especially if the person was black), it is fully covered in great detail.  What rarely gets covered is the good cops doing their job and doing good in their communities. There was a recent... Continue Reading →
