How long before the hundred armed to the teeth cops go after the 50 unarmed protesters for:
1) throwing rocks
2) blocking traffic
3) throwing Molotov Cocktails
4) abusive threatening language
5) being black
Quick, somebody call Officer GoFuckYourself.

She's the victim. I don't care if Janay Rice married a man after the fact he coldcocked her in an elevator. I don't care if she hit him first. I don't care if she was drunk. I don't care if she told Ray Rice she was a Steelers fan. She is the victim here. Not the abuser.
Ray Rice was FINALLY cut by the Baltimore Ravens today after a video was leaked to the media showing a left hook to the right side of a woman's face worthy of Joe Frazier, who only hit other guys trying to hit him as far as I know. It's about fucking time. The NFL increased the "suspension' of Rice from 2 games to indefinite. After the video was leaked. I guess dragging her around like an extra from 1 Million Years BC was not all that bad. Hey, who knows what happened in that elevator, shhhh, icks-nay on that other video, so we here at the lofty towers of the National Football League suspend Ray Rice for two whole games. Oh yeah, you , Josh Gordon, you gotta real problem. You smoke too much weed man. You are gone for a year.
Look, I hate the NFL. I think that league would allow murders at halftime if they didn't think all the do gooders out there would get their panties in a wad. The NFL is made up of the biggest group of old white miscreants since the meeting of the Springfield Republican Party. These people are about one thing. Makin money you fools. Makin money with one sided contracts, merch, overpriced concessions, tickets, parking and extortion of city governments too scared of dim witted fans to say go fuck yourself we aint building you a new stadium.
The NFL has notoriously ignored safety concerns concerning it's players. And yeah, most of the players would give up the right side of their brains to make millions because they are invincible, but that doesn't make it right. You don't let 9 year olds shoot machine guns, do ya? Ok bad example.
The NFL has grown into such a monster it also feels invincible. To put up with the violent jerks who often play the game, to putting up with doctors who send injured players back onto the field, to putting up with racist nicknames that only a cretin would defend, to paying their cheerleaders less than an average child laborer makes, this multi BILLION dollar entity needs to be slapped around a bit itself.
Come on, Roger Goodell, the so called "Commissioner" of the NFL, has the power of whatever his handlers let him have. To suggest that he did not see the elevator video and thus under penalized Ray Rice is ludicrous. He saw it. And he, along with the Ravens owners, coaches and teammates, enabled him to give Ray Rice not the left hook he deserved, but a tiny slap, and then probably apologized.
Screw the NFL. It's product on the field is the most popular sports related product out there. It is a money machine. I own NFL crap myself. I'm part of the problem, granted. I watched games yesterday. Well I watched the Bears anyway. But this league ,much like a lot of stuff out there, really bothers me.
Being a baseball fan first and foremost, football is about third or fourth on my list of sports I must watch. So I really don't get the fascination with the sport and with the NFL. But I actually do get it.
1) it is a weekend activity
2) it's easy to bet on
3) it's violent
4) it allows one to drink beer at 10 am on a Sunday
5) it lets men be men
At least until today.
Remember, she's the victim. No matter what the circumstances.

Hey enjoy your Labor Day. Established in 1894 as a sort of oh sorry for that whole Haymarket Massacre deal, Labor Day has become simply a day off. Oh yeah, there are parades of lazy shiftless union "workers" down the streets while the job creators, the real heroes of America, sit in their country clubs still working so hard to create those jobs for those poor Indonesians, Vietnamese and Chinese. Yeah it's Labor Day, where in a salute to the millions of people working for a living, they get to work. For minimum wage. At a company that steers them to the food stamp line. Saaaaalute!
Can you even imagine this Congress creating a modern day Labor Day holiday? No me either. Instead we'd be saluting the fine folks at Bain Capital and Wal Mart and GlaxoSmithKline.
Yes it's Job Creators Day. Where the workers all go to work for free in a salute to their employers and carry the CEO around on a litter all day and feed them grapes. If the CEO doesn't want to go to the office and observe her or his free money day, a lucky four employees can be chosen to caddy for them at the Club, drinks and dinner on the employees of course. Thanks boss. For being a Job Creator. This is YOUR day. The day where you realize that Americans working for free is a damn good idea. But Americans are so greedy with their insistence on living wages and health care and safe working conditions and unnecessary shit like that. So where can we get a free work days forever? Overseas where they eat dirt and have armed guards looking over them. Ohhhh a Job Creators Wet Dream.
Oh I kid the Job Creators on their day. They really do care. Well about cutting that golf score below 80 that is.
So I salute anybody who actually works for a living. That includes about 93% of us or so. The other 7%, or 47% like certain asshole politicians love to lie about? I salute you too. For trying. Unlike most Republicans, I don't love America and hate Americans.
For those not working, I remind you of the greatest advice you can ever get. From Pete Townsend and Roger Daltrey. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

Omaha Police took on a guy robbing a Wendy's with an air soft gun and not only killed the robber but took out a Cops Sound man too.
The "shootout" involved over 30 bullets. I hate to second guess, bullshit, of course I love it, but if a cop comes in a west door and another cop comes in the east door along with two TV guys, what the fuck is West Door doing shooting at some guy with three others coming in East Door? Is saving $40 worth of Wendy's money necessary?
Oh yeah, the air gun was fired twice. Right before 30 bullets blasted through the air killing anything that moved.
The tanning salon 100 yards away was hit 3 times with a worker still manning the beds.
As we speak, the spinning is beginning. Tape exists. It will not be shown. Sorry, but killing the thief isn't my problem here, it's firing fucking 30 plus bullets while innocent people are in the way.
Well, what would you do, Mister 20/20 Hindsight? I'd fire my entire clip, reload and fire another clip. But ya know, I KNOW that about myself and thus, did not become a cop. Nor do I own guns or want to fire guns.
My sympathies to Bryce Dion's loved ones and the crew of Cops. In 25 years of filming COPS, nothing like this has never happened. Come to Omaha, and work with OPD, and voila.
I love my hometown and it's ability to stick it's collective head in the sand regarding its Police Department.
Omaha-We Don't Coast. We go full out all the time. 30 plus!

Come on St Louis County PD. If you're gonna make shit up do it right. Despite there being a million "journalists" in Ferguson and about 100 protesters and no video evidence of any "molotov cocktails" being heaved at the occupying force of Seal Team 6 wannabees, this is what you come up with a "proof"?. A POW of a Molotov cocktail being displayed like POW's were in Hanoi?
Hate to go all Jesse Ventura here but if that's real, I'll drink a bottle of that crap and light my insides on fire.
Once again, with all that lootin' and stealin' combined with all the welfare and unemployment benefits that put Ferguson into the 1% category, you'd think you could come up with a better prop.
A Molotov Cocktail in a Hennessy bottle or Red Kool Aid.

Back in 1970 whatever in a different life, in a different time, I used to play spin the tunes on the radio. On the Friday night midnight to 6 am shift you could pretty much do whatever you wanted because no station big shots were up and if they were they were asleep, drunk, high and in all probability had no interest in listening to their own shitty radio station no matter their condition.
I hated working that shift, not only because of the request line full of stoners and lonely chicks wanting to hear Pink Floyd or Zeppelin or this new group called KISS. My loathing of KISS cannot be defined by normal words, though I could get through a playing of Strutter without wanting to blow my brains out. I not only hated KISS and their hey look at us we suck but we blow shit up and dress like assholes act, I hated their fucking "music" and their army full of losers.
Gene Simmons is a prick. Everybody knows that, right? Gene Simmons wouldn't piss without figuring a way to make money out of it (shhhh dont tell him KISS PISS rhymes), He is a total douchebag in every way, shape or form. But as long as Nugent exists, he never truly will become the biggest asshole in rock. But oh how he's trying.
While promoting his latest exercise in making money he pimped himself out yet again by granting an interview to the highly sympathetic Wall Street Journal in which he defended Donald Sterling, called on immigrants to learn "goddamn English" and told depressed people "Fuck you then kill yourself" and aske people to be nice to him cuz he's rich.
Goddamn, Gene-O, I know you said this stupid shit before Robin Williams committed suicide but even you must feel like an asshole this time. Right?
Well after a cost analysis study I'm sure, Chaim Weitz, uhhhh, Gene Simmons said he was sorry. Sorry because he had just taken one step off the bridge to career suicide or sorry because he really means it?
You be the judge. In the meantime, Ted Nugent stays at #1 in the Rock Asshole Poll due to that pussy apology from Gene.
Hey Gene, Ted says "fuck you then kill yourself" for doing the right thing for once.
