    Throughout the pursuit of justice for all three of these slain young black men [ named in the article], great efforts were made to assassinate their character, devalue their humanity, and, in a sense, make it seem as if justice was an unnecessary luxury for them. The attempted thuggification of their names and reputation is despicable.

    ..."Thug" is the new "nigger."

    icon_rolleyes.gif Yes, yes. A typically shallow article from a typical left-wing rag. How dare anyone state the facts of how one's lived his life? You might actually be able to form a good idea of his character! And yes, that's called "being 'judgmental'."

    Sadly, no great surprise.
    Similar tactics have been applied here, most appallingly by the authorities themselves in cases like Bloody Sunday, Hillsborough, and the police`s shooting of Jean Charles de Menedez in London in 2005. All three saw constant character assassinations, usually alleging some kind of wrongdoing, deceit, or suspicious behaviour of the victims by the press and authorities, etc.; in the former case, on and off since 1972.
    All this lack of justice means people are becoming ever more skeptical of the legal system and the authorities and their intentions. Recent child abuse cases have further emphasized this growing problem.

    Your obese queenie bigoted fat nasty ass just can't step away from your compulsion to call other people racists, huh?

    It must be easier for you to sit on your lazy ass and call everyone who doesn't agree with you a racist than it is to ACTUALLY do something about being a nasty ass obese tacky queen.

    That was a quote from an article. Not a single word of it was my own. And not directed at anyone in particular here, but addresses a larger problem US-wide.

    Whereas your own sick ad-hominem tirade against me, by name, has to go down as one of RJ's all-time low points.

    But that's OK, it just reveals you for who and what you are. And it sure isn't a very pretty or enviable picture. icon_razz.gif

    Anyone who wears those expensive glasses and a kilt can hardly be called tacky.

    If you look at Michael Brown's history including robberies, beating people up, it would be difficult to deny the term "thug" isn't appropriate.

    In this case, the term is the reaction of much of the media and administration that rushed to the position that the cop used unjustified force and that Brown had his hands up. If the media, administration, and the left, in general, didn't hold him up as a choir boy, the reaction, calling him a thug, might not have been as strong.

    Even today, many who held up their hands and chanted "hands up, don't shoot" won't admit they fell for a lie.

    Oh, I can be tacky at times, and campy, too, it's fun. icon_biggrin.gif It's the "queenie" I object to. icon_wink.gif
