to view the Walter Scott murder scene. A post will follow
CNN, Peter Bergen
& Lewis Carroll’s Bong:
Dissecting Seymour Hersh’s OBL Bunker-buster
Part One of Two Parts
Rabbit in Abbottabad
Bergen over at CNN has some
problems. One is his mouth. Another is, to paraphrase Seymour Hersh,
because Bergen interviewed Osama bin Laden, aka OBL, almost 20
years ago, he now exudes an attitude that he is the sole trustee of
everything having to do with OBL. And the third problem is Bergen’s
fatal dependence on the smoke-screen that Barrack Obama and his
crowd have blown into the face of the entire world about the killing of
OBL. Should that smoke-screen be lifted, the resulting truth lurking
behind it could very well sink Bergen professionally, making him more of a
4th Estate pariah than even Dan Rather. The sum of these
problems, IMO, amounts to some very serious questions about Peter Bergen’s
and CNN’s competence and honesty in their attempts to take down Hersh.

What I'm lookin' for is a motorcycle gang with
the balls to pick a truthful name and
no false advertising in their colors. Like "The Cretins."
Maybe "MORON" on the bottom rocker.
This Arab is freaking me out.
Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, the

that Beau Biden is out of office, new Del. AG, Matt Denn, gets
indictment on white cop, Tom Webster IV,
videoed drop kicking black man in the face.
This prick, Cpl Thomas Webster IV,
should be doing time IMO
we've got an open-and-shut
case where one cop's dash
cam clearly shows another cop, Tom Webster IV, brutally
drop-kicking a suspect full in the face as the suspect is getting on the
ground as ordered. Even though the first cop re-adjusts his car so
the cam is no longer on the beat-up suspect, there are no ifs, ands, or
buts as to what happened. There are no excuses and no valid
defenses. This was out and out felonious assault and battery by a
cop and Webster's ass should have been locked up a long time ago.
The victim, Lateef Dickerson lost consciousness and before the car
was moved the vid briefly shows him lying limp on the ground. His
jaw was busted.

SigSauer in Ferguson, MO. [Link] Unarmed and
mentally ill Kelly Thomas was beaten to death in Fullerton, CA by
three rogue cops, one of whom told Thomas before beating him, "See
these gloves? They’re going to fuck you up." [Link]
Unarmed Eric Garner, who was selling individual cigarettes, had his

In Pennsylvania Officer Lisa Mearkle shot unarmed David Kassick
in the back while he was lying face down, showing his empty hands. [Link]
Officer Michael Slager shot unarmed Walter Scott in the back
as Scott was running away in Charleston, SC. [Link]
And, as we are currently reminded by the smoke still lingering over
Baltimore, unarmed Freddie Gray’s vertebral column and voice box
were crushed while he was in the custody of "Baltimore’s
finest," photos above.
I could go on and on, and, in fact, Wikipedia
does go on and on with their lists of people killed by America’s
cops. They list 619 for 2014, 330 for 2013, and 63 for 2009. But such data
are notoriously incomplete. The Bureau of Justice Statistics
estimates the annual average of homicides by cops at between 930 and 1240
– and even those are low ball figures according to a recent analysis. [Link]
For any moderately conscious and fair-minded person, all of these killings
point to one question: What the fuck is going on?
