    Angry news, the democratic way

    remember that thread awhile ago that was a complete flame, the us/american bashing one? remember when i took the american point of view and (mostly) every one else decides to be a european "man",where are the riots now?

    good so see equal rights work, just switch the sides and collect the votes, democrats. people wouldnt stand for the other way around, funny how it doesnt matter this way.

    im sure this will be a flame in no time, im just wondering if one or two good points will actually be made. im also doing this incase this case is actually getting some real attention, something i havent seen, something im not expecting.

    by they way, this isnt new news, i saw this a long time ago. if it was the other way around there would of been riots that same night led by every democrat in the state and of course coverage every where.

    i wonder how many people are going to pull a slashdot.......

    one last thing, im sorry if this is offensive to you(seriously), but with alot of people (surprisenly alot in the tech sector) i just dont care.

    I have no idea what your point actually is. Are you trying to blame this death on the Democratic Party or what? If a person is killed, especially in such a negligent fashion, it's wrong no matter what your political beliefs might be.

    And what exactly are the "American point of view" and the "European point of view"? People hold opinions as individuals, not as continents.

    One last thing: Bridges are for trolls.

    no, i just cant wait to hear what they have to say. nothing is ever simple to them. there is no right and wrong just society's problem.
    what really pi$$es me off is how if it was the other way around there would be riots, but if you want to push this article your a racist(i know its coming).

    atleast you picked one and read it, i was expected a slashdot being pulled.

    by they way, how come people dont use there names threads like this?

    The lady did something horrible, she was obviously in the wrong. I don't see how race or society plays into this story, she would be viewed the same regardless of ethnicity or background. I think most people would see this as an act of wrong doing, and not a flaw in society, it's not a matter of politics.

    nice to know...

    basicly this was a angry rant to see what techy people would say. the ties into alot of stuff.

    if you remember a old thread about aids, i took the more conservative side. i said why should we spend so much money over there when we have problems here. i said that we were just wasting it. soon after i said something and a anti us bashing session started.

    the normal kind, were the west is always wrong. so naturaly i point out how much we did for them, how did practicly nothing for us. some where/how more was said about ethnic groups and i was called a racists.

    so by the fact that i think no one should be given money/less of a sentence(jail wise) for being any race i became a racist. now when a black women runs over a white man and lets him die slowly 2 days, nothing.

    shes not a racist, the guy would of been if it was ther other way around. there would of been a riot and every one would cover this story, but its a white mans problem, so no one has to here. so ethnic/"minority group will get twice the press while a white guys will get half, talk about equal rights. i think we took steps backward(we have taken steps forward sense slavery, but this is more revenge than justice).

    i threw democrat in the title just because they all ways love to say every other group is racist. just like the tend not to answer questions.

    i was basicly surprised and wanted to what would happen, not alot.

    hmmm... you have some valid points there. When a white person kills a black person, it will likely be tried under hate crime legislation (stupid stuff, imo). When a black kills a white, it's tried as murder. I think affirmative action is wrong too. I don't know how the heck it survives, because the people I've talked to froim various parts of the country that are in "minority groups" don't like it either... I think it's just a liberal idea. Hmmph.
    Away.

    id like to know how this crap got started in the first place.

    america was founded on standing up for a reason, why does no one do it anymore. who started all this touchy feely crap.

    i remember tring to look up the dumba$$ and finding out it took 30 years for the constition to be screwed up. i dont know exactly what happened, but i agreed with alot of other things on the mans site so ill probally agree with him(on the constition being screwup after 30 years).

    its the same with guns, wars, crime and laws.

    we dont need to enforce our laws, we need more of them. its not his fault for going on a rampage, its society's. guns dont save lives, the end them. just like gore created the internet. just like we need them and not the other way around.

    It probably started in the 60s as a response to racism, and as an attempt to create more diversity.

    Questions end with '?' marks. Sentences end with '.' marks. And commas are used to create pauses in sentences and questions.

    Of course people stand up for stuff. It's easy to see otherwise when nobody agrees with you.

    tring? constition? You're trying to convince me you're right, not that you're stupid. If you keep posting like this, I'm going to assume that you're a liberal in disguise trying to make conservatives look bad.

    And what do you mean by the fact that the Constitution screwed up over 30 years? If you want to convince me, you'll have to explain what you mean here.

    its the same with guns, wars, crime and laws.
    This implies that I understand the previous paragraph, which I don't.

    we dont need to enforce our laws, we need more of them.
    Don't be sarcastic. It's hard enough to understand you normally.
    guns dont save lives, the end them.
    Stop ending your words a letter too early. And what does this have to do with your point, anyway? Of course guns end lives.

    just like gore created the internet.
    Sentence fragment. Of course Gore didn't create the Internet. What does this have to do with anything?

    just like we need them and not the other way around.
    Who's we? Who's them? What the hell are you talking about?

    Nice one....Iím attempting to do this quickly, as you already noticed.

    And what do you mean by the fact that the Constitution screwed up over 30 years? If you want to convince me, you'll have to explain what you mean here.
    Like I said I donít know where it went wrong. I read a site that said 30 years ago, nothing more. I agreed with other things on the site (mainly gun laws), so Iím assuming ill agree with him on whatever happened 30 years after the constitution.

    Don't be sarcastic. It's hard enough to understand you normally.
    O sorry, I didnít think it was that bad, ill try to do a quick spell check.

    Stop ending your words a letter too early.
    I get the point, slow down....

    Of course guns end lives.
    So there never saved a single life? They donít belong in a "civilized society".

    Of course Gore didn't create the Internet. What does this have to do with anything?
    I wanted to add more crap democrats say, I was on a computer which one a tech site, it just popped in my head.

    Who's we? Who's them? What the hell are you talking about?
    We = America
    Them = more or less (mostly less), the world

    I really should have made reference, to the war.

    When other countries need us, they kiss our a$$. When we need them (mostly for convenience), their no where to be found or their screaming at us since we didnít try enough tea parties for them.

    Well......I think this should get the prize of least coherent thread of the month. I'm lost, completely bewildered.

    The story of that death was tragic though

    The only people I've heard ever say that were Republicans.

    I don't really need to address the rest of the "issue" here... Besides, that article's over a year old. I fail to see how any of this has to do with one political party over the other; you're just reaching for a reason to .........., IMO.
