    first, from over a year ago:



    the perp is justin collison, a cop's son, so naturally was not arrested, despite overwhelming evidence which should have led to his detainment.

    outraged at this, a local activist canvassed the local neighborhood w/ placards, leaflets, etc., trying to get the support of the black community to rise up. so determined to obtain justice for Sherman, he did what few others were willing to do: he stepped up and went door-to-door in black communities handing out fliers about the incident. he posted the fliers, put them on cars in parking lots, waited outside churches to give them to parishioners. he worked tirelessly exposing this injustice.

    In January, his efforts finally paid off. In part, thanks to public pressure after the video was posted on Youtube, Justin Collison, a man with a violent history, was charged with sucker punching Sherman Ware.

    this wouldn't be much of a story if it weren't for who the tireless samaritan is, but i'll leave his identity as an exercise to you:
    stranger than fiction

    So, what you're saying is that the corrupt/incompetent cops who whitewashed the Trayvon Martin killing are the same ones who whitewashed an assault by the kid of one of the other officers?


    God the right-wing media is working overtime trying to spin this. First there was the anonymous police leak of the "vicious beating" that Trayvon gave Zimmerman, then there was the "suspended from school for drug use" leak, now this report making Zimmerman out to be some kind of modern-day Mother Theresa...

    I know. Even before googling your posts, I know it's probably from The Daily Caller or some other Riefenstahl-esque site...

    I'm still waiting to hear how NBC cutting the tape the way they did constitutes something devious.

    Whether he was prompted or not makes no difference. Because him saying "I think he's black" doesn't change a god damned thing about what happened.

    pretend that fox did something along the lines of taking raw material & packaging it in a way that put forth a particular narrative (after all, that's what the pros do, don't they?).

    would you buy the "i accidentally the whole thing" line?

    uh-oh, looks like google has been co-opted by rove, murchoch, clear channel, et al.

    No dumbass, you're not presenting insightful parallels on the way to my 'revelation', you're failing to see their irrelevance to the entire picture. Take a few and figger it out.

    he was open about his purely unabashed agitprop
    have you taken 2 helpings of silver's seed? you go from the OP, to becoming an opportunist to attack a position i did not take, to now refusing to acknowledge the possibility of someone extorting for their own agenda/political gain a dead kid's tragedy.

    yeah, i'm the asshole...
    so now which goal post are we shooting for? i'm looking at the 'stranger than fiction' one, but feel free to shoot for the right wing boogeyman du jour

    speaking of fact checking:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Optik_TV_channels
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Bell_TV_channels (507)
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Cogeco_Cable_Ontario_TV_Channels (127)
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Rogers_Digital_Cable_Channels (181)
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Shaw_Cable_channels (142)
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Shaw_Direct_channels (503 & 154)

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/story/2004/11/18/fox_crtc041118.html

    that list took 5 min, including formatting. you obviously have no intellectual curiosity whatsoever, and are so easily led by whatever narrative that already fits your world view. you are a perfect example of a die hard liberal; not a free-thinking one.


    now go clean my gun, boy

    all goal-posting and "my news is better than your news" aside... what i don't get from the OP is how these two officers were anything but an officer actually physically being there and the other guy transporting zimmerman.

    One of those officers was Timothy Smith. According to a police incident report from the scene of the Feb. 26 shooting, Officer Smith handcuffed [name redacted] and transported him to the police station. Another was Sergeant Anthony Raimondo, who was on scene with Smith and other local officers.

    so what? wow, one guy was on scene (probably because he was on shift) and the other guy drove in a car with zimmerman (probably because he was on shift). that proves ziltch, and is not weird, or fiction. i would definitely call it a fact, but what are the two officers supposed to do? protest the guy and not put him in handcuffs?

    THIS JUST IN: cops who work in city of shooting work in city of shooting.

    That article is dated 2004, the one i posted is dated 2011, fox news was aloud then banned due to bad fact checking.

    Funny how you judge my thinking ability based on my dislike for fox new's lack of ability to report on fact. MSNBC sucks too, that's why I ignore it as well. It's also funny that I don't have cable and watch ZERO news entertainment. Most of my news comes from the BBC, there is the least opinion and best checked facts there.

    I'll tell you what boy, come shoot a silhouette match with me and the loser has to clean the winners gun.

    Oh, and consider yourself lucky I keep my guns clean.

    so what you're saying is, you cannot view foxnews in canada? please tell me you're saying that. please tell me you truly believe the non-news source article you linked is absolutely the same as "the cable news channel known as foxnews is banned by canadian law." please tell me you believe the wikipedia links i provided got haxxored & is false to claim that it is currently being offered by most outlets & channel providers

    next, explain to me how the foxnews channel -- with the largest audience among all other cable news channels for any time slot -- is somehow able to squelch this rather embarrassing story from every other competing news source. even that whiny bitch hannity gets at least twice what maddow gets. olbermann is a serial loser w/ an audience who must now only be the morbidly curious, & every knows his failings within the hour, but somehow this breaking news of foxnews being banned from america's hat is squashed.

    finally, do speculate as to why no one else here who are also rabid anti-foxnews will come to your aide

    go get another tattoo; preferably one with a 'cut here' meme.

    my treat.

    Is that a better source as to how fox news is banned in canada, I don't know if you can see it or not on satellite or what have you, from what it looks like fox news as it airs in america is now aloud due to inaccuracy. Read for yourself

    Dude stinkle, I hope to g-d your at least smart enough to hate anal seepage. Read what I said, I don't like either, and don't watch or listen to either. I read the BBC.

    Oh, and rick santorum is a serious candidate, let's take a real look at just how stupid the people who watch fox news, and vote republican ACTUALLY are.

    No one needs to come to my aid, it just makes you look dumber when I show you how lousy foux news.

    that's a blog
    blog != news

    one more time: do you believe foxnews is banned by canadian law from being offered by canadian cable/satellite providers?

    not a trick question. [hint: you can look up canadian laws just like you can look up US laws]

    i do not have foxnews b/c i'm too cheap.
    i do, however, have msnbc & being fri nite, will begin to watch 10 unblinking hrs of lockup raw

    That's nothing.

    You know what breitbart got for editing videos of shirley sherrod and acorn? Jesus killed him.

    And was the kind of spin you like. Conservatives just got it so rough! And from their pal jesus too!
