    Well I was going to add to the surf board question but I forgot most people here are experts at surfing and have surfed around the various shores. I just got back from a 3 week vacation driving an RV around the west. Funny thing: The average clerk at a 7-11 across the nation could carry on a more intelligent conversation than a large portion of posters here but maybe it's just me. cr****

    The average clerk at a 7-11 is more intelligent than you. So yes. it's just you.



    edit: actually, ron, why don't you conduct an experiment. Go into various 7-11s across the US and share --vocally, loudly -- your viewpoints on African-American female singers, and sex tourism with underage girls in Mexico. See what happens and report back to us. If you can.

    There's also a really strong likelihood that the 7-11 clerks Ron claims to have had intelligible conversations with were just mailboxes he mumbled at for a few minutes when he thought he was out buying milk.

    i can't believe what is going on in ferguson. my mom's area is ok. she's in a historic district 20 minutes away. but damn, i'm having trouble keeping up with all the news on this. it seems as though the police keep choosing the wrong methods to deal with this. i thought i read somewhere that they hadn't even brought in the victim's friend for questioning, wtf?! and none of the witness accounts, including the police's, seem to match. and the reporters that were arrested last night allegedly asked for the arresting officer's names, and couldn't get them. fuck the police state.

    I really can't believe it either.

    I've read through a few police message boards and the responses are exactly what you'd expect. These guys view themselves as "soldiers" and "warriors" fighting against "society's worst."

    i have a feeling her area will be untouched. from what i have gathered, st. louis and the surrounding areas are pretty segregated. and from what i have read in the comments of stories, the train doesn't go to her area.

    and yeah gribbz, just awful. reading people's racist comments with the not-so-subtle references to "thugs" and baggy pants makes me cringe. where are all the bundy ranch militia style gun nuts to protect the people of ferguson from the police?!

    Right? I mean, isn't this the fantasy gun nuts have been jerking off to for years? What's stopping them? Oh wait, Ferguson is predominantly black and the police force is predominantly white.

    Contrast with reaction to Bundy ranch standoff, where right wing sympathies ran to armed militia jerkoffs pointing guns at federal agents, because an aggrieved elderly white rancher didn't want to pay grazing fees that he owed the government.

    ha, STL police are being removed from the situation. FBI taking over.

    i also really don't understand all the pussy-footing from some people basically saying "well, we don't know the facts yet so why are people protesting". yes, we still need details to know what happened. but we need to stop accepting as a society that the police should go around shooting unarmed people for non-violent offenses. i am sure there's a small probability the kid tried to kill the officer, but it seems unlikely given the facts so far. whether the kid was doing something wrong is not really the issue. the issues is that cops keep escalating situations that don't need to end in death.

    and why are cops wearing camo in the city?

    Exactly. It's been happening for far too long and people always treat these as isolated incidents, but if police forces throughout the country are having the same issue, then maybe its more endemic in the culture of law enforcement as it currently exists. That's something we really need to address.

    I involuntarily think, "Smooth move, Ferguson" every time the name is used, and then I chuckle to myself.

    I think it's more of an out of touch with reality classist joke about how only a moron would work at 7-11, despite the fact that plenty of intelligent, worldly, wise people are forced into menial jobs to get by, which you'd think would fall into his philosophy of manning up and working no matter what. So, just general, incoherent hate spewing with no real thought put behind it as usual. We didn't need Mexican prostitutes to despise you, Ron, you've given us plenty of fuel besides that.

    The problem with police is that a lot of the kinds of people who are attracted to the idea of a career wearing a uniform, a badge, and a gun -- and all the authority that goes along with it -- are assholes. "I would like a career where I get to handcuff people and throw them in jail" comes from (1) an overbearing hero fantasy and / or (2) narcissism with sado-masochistic overtones. Not saying all cops are like this, but that it's a profession that these types of people naturally find appealing.

    Police are necessary, though, so the way a free society is supposed to manage the risk of abuse of power is through training and accountability. The fact that we don't really have a credible story -- or much of a story at all, really -- from the police department speaks volumes.
