    Unfortunate event, but does it really matter who was specifically injured?

    As a veteran, it does to me.

    I feel it's particularly upsetting that someone should survive two tours in Iraq, only to be critically injured by police for exercising their constitutional rights after returning home.

    But not everyone will agree, I imagine...

    I understand, bitter irony is not everyone's ball of wax.

    We should get rid of all police they are brutal and of no use to us, all they do is purposefully harm our returning vets.

    Or, maybe, just maybe, we shouldn't try to sick the police on innocent people who are exercising their constitutionally guaranteed rights.

    But no, that would be too simple. I guess we'll have to stick with hyperbole.

    I am somewhat sure PMS-NBC will be all over this story soon. Just like with F&F and Solyndra Scandal.

    As you can also be sure that FoxNews will either not cover it at all, or spend the next 24 hours defending the cop who shot the guy.

    Extremist media is fucking ridiculous on both sides.

    I'm sorry but it was not his constitutional rights if the police were taking action against them.At least I believe they had to have done something to warrant the police actions. To be plain so that you understand me perfectly clear; what is it that you nor your video are telling us? What is it that started the actions taken by the police? If these people were told to vacate the area or had been throwing things at the police, or painting buildings, then they had crossed the line.......

    As far as the Veteran, he should have known better.
