Boy, 8, hit by car while getting on bus May 27, 2015 at 8:17 p.m.

Then I would say this lady has a very good chance of beating the ticket. In AR, cars have the right of way over pedestrians so long as the pedestrian is NOT in a crosswalk. And it sounds as if the boy was crossing before the bus was stopped. Maybe the boy's father should have been cited for letting the boy cross.

Boy, 8, hit by car while getting on bus May 26, 2015 at 8:37 p.m.

I'll take a different approach - the law in AR says that drivers must stop when the bus is stopped and displaying it's RED alternating warning lights. According to Minden, the bus was STOPPING but apparently NOT displaying its RED alternating lights. Therefore, the driver was NOT required BY LAW to stop at that point.

Nevada case is latest to test 'stand your ground' laws May 25, 2015 at 5:25 p.m.

"Whether or not they were [in fear] cannot be proven in a court of law."
.
Where do you come UP with this crap? Forensics will show the angle of the shot. If these two were laying on the ground, that WILL be known. Therefore whether there was an actual threat - and therefore justified fear - will ALSO be known. And if there wasn't, this guy will be toast - especially if he planned or otherwise targeted anyone who might have been in the home.

Ohio patrolman acquitted in 2 deaths amid 137-shot barrage May 24, 2015 at 11:19 p.m.

"The point of my arguments is that there are too many unarmed people being shot to death by police who claim they felt their life was in danger."
.
No doubt there are. But these cases are being taken to grand jury, taken to trial, so it's not like the cops are getting a free pass. So your point really doesn't matter.
.
" And yes the black killed by white cop is way out of proportion when compared to white killing white or Black cop killing white people."
.
Please give me percentages. I would like to know how you arrive at 'out of proportion.'

"does that mean that no cop was guilty of shooting the unarmed victims? "
.
I dunno, man. Seems to me a vehicle is a weapon. Especially at the speeds they were fleeing at.
.

" And the 12 year old boy they shot recently? "
.
You meant the one that weighed 195lbs and was pointing a gun - modified to look real - at other people at a park? That one? You people are unbelievable.
.
"Do any of you believe that killing unarmed citizens is AOK as long as they are Obama skin types?"
.
Of course. Can't argue facts? Play the race card. You'd fit right in with the rest of the protesters. Hands up, don't shoot, right?

and, incidentally, I think Brelo SHOULD have been guilty of SOMETHING. His Rambo move was over the top. Blame the prosecution for not finding an appropriate law to charge him with. Hmm...that sounds familiar.

Do you people even bother to look at the facts? The prosecution couldn't PROVE Brelo fired the FATAL shot. That's a pretty f'n important FACT. So YES, he gets ACQUITTED of manslaughter (and, apparently, execution).

Ohio patrolman acquitted in 2 deaths amid 137-shot barrage May 24, 2015 at 7:45 a.m.

"Russell was shot 23 times. O'Donnell found that based on the testimony at trial, four of those shots were lethal. Those shots came from three different directions. Two were to the top of Russell's head, but one was to the right side of his chest and another to the left side.

"It is highly unlikely, if not impossible, that during that less than 8 seconds Russell was positioned, then repositioned, then repositioned again so that all four wounds came from the same gun in the same place," O'Donnell said.

In other words, O'Donnell concluded that Brelo fired at least one of those shots, but could not have fired all four."
.
What was that, Cliff?

"Of the 137 bullets fired at the victims, Officer Brelo fired 49 of them"
.
Meaning nearly 100 were fired from OTHER officers.
.
"The Judges decision was that he couldn't determine who fired fatal shots even though the 15 shots entering the victims bodies all came from an angle that would correspond from shots being fired from the hood of the car."
.
And none of those 15 were proved to be the fatal shot. How do you find him guilty of manslaughter if you can't prove he fired the fatal shot. You can't.
.
"This policeman committed murder"
.
doesn't that require premeditation? Therefore, NO he DIDN'T.
.
"You think that maybe the victims were running because of the reputation of the police when they stop a black person?"
.
No, I don't.
"It appears that if a Black person is shot or killed during an encounter with the police, the police will not be punished even when they are guilty of mayhem. "
.
Not when said black person leads the police though a HIGH SPEED chase.

Police destroy Josh Duggar's record May 23, 2015 at 7:34 a.m.

Since it's being reported that the statute of limitations ran out on Duggar, what 'appropriate action' did the 'law of the land' take on him, RB?
