Every post in this thread must be a lie.

Including this very sentence and every one after it, which are all lies in themselves.

You must tell some real whoppers when you reply.

Lie well.

Police Shoot Unarmed Man With His Back Turned And Arms Raised (GRAPHIC VIDEO in link)

Pinal County, Arizona- Police shoot another unarmed man to death. Manuel Longoria had turned away and raised his arms mere moments before an officer fired into him. A week later that officer is back to work. The video included below contrasts with the explanation given by police.

The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office said it investigated the shooting. That investigation found the officer’s use of force justified. But that was before the video taken by an onlooker surfaced. Now the phrase “suicide by cop” is being used. Judge for yourself.


Manuel Longoria, of Mesa, AZ, had led police on a 40 minute chase in a stolen car. Police disabled the vehicle and Longoria got out. That’s when witnesses report, Longoria said he had a gun and wouldn’t be taken alive. But no one saw a gun, or any other object, in Mr. Longoria’s possession. No gun or weapon of any kind was found on scene.

6-Day Visit To Rural African Village Completely Changes Woman’s Facebook Profile Picture

ST. LOUIS—Calling the experience “completely transformative,” local 22-year-old Angela Fisher told reporters Tuesday that her six-day visit to the rural Malawian village of Neno has completely changed her profile picture on Facebook. “As soon as I walked into that dusty, remote town and the smiling children started coming up to me, I just knew my Facebook profile photo would change forever,” said Fisher, noting that she realized early in her nearly weeklong visit just how narrow and unworldly her previous Facebook profile photos had been. “I don’t think my profile photo will ever be the same, not after the experience of taking such incredible pictures with my arms around those small African children’s shoulders.

Honestly, I can’t even imagine going back to my old Facebook photo of my roommate and I at an outdoor concert.” Since returning, Fisher said she has been encouraging every one of her friends to visit Africa, promising that it would change their Facebook profile photos as well.
