If the facts in this article are accurate, then high praise to the officers for showing restraint and bringing a potentially deadly situation under control. And best wishes to Officer Gannon for a full recovery. Thanks.

"Liberals" completely understand. Stop speaking like you've got some monopoly on knowledge.
What's p!ssing most of the country off about Second Amendment zealots isn't which law will stop the next mass atrocity (more likely to be committed by a White male), it's which toddler will next off another using a poorly secured weapon? Which teenager will make use of the incredible killing efficiency of a gun to off another over nothing, or themselves...over nothing?
What's p!ssing most of America off is treating guns like some household appliance ignoring the bigger picture of gun violence. That's what sets our country apart. The carnage of gun violence is a fact (in spite of the NRA's efforts to suppress it). How will Second Amendment zealots and "responsible" gun owners deal with that?

"Petulant children"?
"On the night of Barack Obama’s inauguration, a group of top GOP luminaries quietly gathered in a Washington steakhouse to lick their wounds and ultimately create the outline of a plan for how to deal with the incoming administration."
“'The room was filled. It was a who’s who of ranking members who had at one point been committee chairmen, or in the majority, who now wondered out loud whether they were in the permanent minority,' Frank Luntz, who organized the event, told FRONTLINE."
"Among them were Senate power brokers Jim DeMint, Jon Kyl and Tom Coburn, and conservative congressmen Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy and Paul Ryan."
"After three hours of strategizing, they decided they needed to fight Obama on everything. The new president had no idea what the Republicans were planning."

Oh Snap, Franklowe. You got us again.
You're right of course. We should just keep everything the same, but give everyone a gun. We'll show the world how to do it!

"From 2001 to 2013, 1.5 million Muslims were permanently settled in the United States and there are more on the way. The vast majority view Sharia law as official law."
And at that point, Ms. Barney's letter tragically leaves the rails.

wmarincic: That's the cops story, and we should always trust what the cops say, right?
kmiac (which ever one you are now): You really should post in ALL CAPS if you want to be taken seriously.

Well said, Harmonious.
Every public servant should expect that the public may question their actions and they should expect to be transparent. And law enforcement are no exception, especially when their actions result in harming a citizen, regardless of that person's past.
'Just trust me' is not an option.

Scholz's Hofbrau on Warner's Lake used to be the best in the area for lakeside dining, but the past few years seemed more like a wasted opportunity. Anyone been there lately?

I agree FrankLowe. My point was specifically to the legacy of the flag. The best response to this and other speech we don't agree with is to not give it the attention it seeks. But try telling that to our media...

myshortpencil: Right. A fanatical group can't get their way via Democracy so they decide to try to break it. Just like modern Republicans. The scourge of Democracy is sore losers.
