    Anyone wanna place bets on where Sheriff Clarke ends up? White house or Fox News….. I can see Dump trying to use his confirmation hearing to make another push at ending the filibuster, but Fox also pays better… Man, imagine a show with him and White Power Barbie just complaining at each other for an hour.

  2. Paul Hayes says:

    Perhaps the police in Philadelphia would prefer total silence when a member of the community is gunned down (shot in the back) to the current state in which members of the community are protesting a shooting of one of their own.

    The shooting amounts to an enforcement of aparteid in this country. Minorities are relegated to second class citizenship and they can either like it or die.

  3. Paul Hayes says:

    When Tim Ryan wins the Democratic leadership position in the US House, it’s over for the rest of us.

  4. Ben says:

    Pelosi can really gain back some progressive cred by swiping down this boot-licking little shit asap.

  5. Ben says:

    They do. But no one in a position to do anything about it cares.

  6. Paul Hayes says:

    On this date in 1939, German Nazis invaded Poland; World War II in Europe commenced.

  7. jason330 says:

    Luckily for the world a Democrat was in the White House.

  8. alby says:

    @Ben: No they don’t. Check the polling numbers on how many people support the police. Or just look at the results when one of these jerks is brought to court.

  9. puck says:

    “Support the police” has been perverted to mean “let the police get away with murder.”

  10. RE Vanella says:

    54% of whites think there is a broader problem. Majority, good. Now let’s commit to increasing this. Get people out of their own heads.
