He said the AR15 did not kill people in the theater because it did not function.

What a fugging LIE.

he stumbled ,stuttered and flipped his head to and fro
during the debates...he has not had anything intelligible to
say since he stepped on the stage for the debates.

Lawrence O' Donnell describes him best every night...

I'll be surprised if there still broadcasting a year from now.

Their live coverage of the disarming of the "deadly booby traps" at the Auroras perp's apartment
was over the top hype.

Notice there's not one shred of evidence forthcoming from the Aurora police department on
these bombs-- not one photo, not one report from a bomb expert regarding the so called
"sophistication" of the devices.

Do you really think the police and the media made it all up?

they "made it all up".

I'm saying:

1.) CNN hypes stories, sort of like tabloid journalism. is there ever any follow up on these "crucial" stories?

2.) In case you've not noticed, the police lack credibility. Look at what's going on right now in Anaheim, CA
and the way they treated the OWS protestors in various places in our nation-- spraying large canisters of
pepper spray directly into their faces. WTF?? is this Russia?

regarding Aurora, notice the police chief's statement: ""Make no mistake," Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates
just said to reporters, Holmes' apartment was rigged "to kill whoever entered it." And Oates said it was
most likely going to be a police officer who would have been going in after the attack at the theater.'

OK.. several problems with this: first, given the police were told by Holmes himself he had "booby trapped"
his apt, why would the police just walk in the front door? they wouldn't.

pointing out police officers are in danger is redundant. that's part of their job

regarding "holding evidence until the trial". sure, understandable. but there's no reason we the public-- you know,
the ones who pay the salaries of municipal workers, can't see a written report regarding the so called
"booby traps". that report from a bomb expert should be forthcoming. it's not.

This thread is a mind-fuck.

I was all ready to pontificate about being a celt, Irish decent wondering why Mittens doesn't like me. I mean this whole pandering thing gets bigger each day.

Do you ever get the feeling that Mittens should pose for a remake of that Anglo-Saxon painting of blue boy?
