When I was a youngin' when we said somebody was "lit" it meant they were stoned.  These damn kids today use it for very good or awesome.

Yeah - I had confusion with our German Exchange student when she used it this way, and I thought she was implying someone was high.

It is truly sad that in this day of social media when pictures of every one are easy to find that the only picture the media could find of a recent shooting/murder victim was his last mug shot.

I am assuming the shooting victim must NOT be a POC. 

Because when someone who is a POC shoots a cop or gets shot by a cop, instead of the latest picture of them - we often get their 7th grade graduation picture along with a story about how much promise the kid had and how he had just enrolled in his local Jr. College - with no mention of his recent arrests or that he had just ripped off a Quik-E-Mart for a pack of Swisher's Sweets.

The color of his skin isn't important to the story.

I thought they used his latest mug shot as a picture, seeing the picture elsewhere I am not so sure. The picture I originally saw was credited to the police department, other news outlets show an uncropped version of the same picture and I no longer think it is a mug shot.  Why it is credited to the police department I am not sure.

What I noticed about a lot of these stories is they all follow the same format.  The media mentions:

1) The victim was turning their life around.
2) Everybody liked them.
3) They were an aspiring rap artist.

I see those three things frequently with these shooting victims.

This is why color *is* important. 

Because it is, sometimes, but isn't, other times. 

Ethnicity matters, when we're busy as a society denying that a particular ethnicity has a violent crime problem - and twisting narratives to make it seem like other ethnicities have "all the same problems." 

We're never going to fix the issues ignoring them.

House votes to decriminalize marijuana at federal level

I think legalization of marijuana is inevitable, and it's going to confer a lot of political capital to whoever is seen as spearheading the effort.
My take on "drugz" is the libertarian one though; I think everything from coca-cola to crack cocaine should be treated as 100% legal, because consenting adults and victimless crimes and that sort of thing.

We discussed this before when it happened to a 95-year-old man who was a 17-year-old entry level solder at the time.

if she was actively flipping the switches or beating people, i most likely would be OK with it. Depends on the situation however, as i do give some understanding for following orders when the alternative was death to you and your entire family.. 

But an office worker? I think this is a bit of a stretch in any situation.

If you flipped the switch or beat people when you were 17, at a strange period in society's history - and then things moved on, and you didn't engage in any similar behavior for the next 80 years, and they caught you at the END of it? 

I think this is *exactly* what statutes of limitations are for. It is like rubbing a dog's nose in shit 6 weeks after it happened. Is it to teach the dog a lesson, or because you're really not any better than the dog, it turns out? 

Because it doesn't scare other people away from that behavior. It reinforces, "if you do something, and you get away with it, never admit it, because they'll NEVER let it go."

They have been going at it for decades.

This is nto about justice, and this is not about rehabilitatiing some criminal so he can fit in society (you know, the sort of thing lefties are always talking about)

This is about sticking their flag and calling it a vitcory every time they can.

Very much this.

Western Punishment-And-Areward systems are designed to ensure bad people can be turned into good people. That is the theory. This is why you have so many "Save Horses, Save Men" programs and why lefties are always standing for criminals, because they just need "once another chance".

I think this sort of thing proves this is all hypocresy and crap at work.


If they can use the system to destroy their enemies they will, principles be damned.
