Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, July 21, 2019

A Gretna police officer posted a comment on his Facebook page this past week calling U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a "vile idiot" who "needs a round, and I don't mean the kind she used to serve."

The best thing about Trump is that he encourages garbage people to out themselves and destroy their careers. Ha Ha!

We literally had a California Dem whack job calling Rep. Gates (R-FL) with death threats - the police caught the guy, and he was not charged. Sick. This is what the whack job said:

I guess after the whack job Dems attacked Rand Paul and shot up a GOP softball game, the government does not take these threats seriously yet. So, until then, you can skip the faux outrage over what is clearly a joke.

I'm for that. I even have a list or probable offenders. If we're worried about the behavior of actors, start with Trump.

Typical. Somebody on their team is a POS and all righties can muster is "everybody does it".

You fools are so stupid I lack the vocabulary to accurately describe it.

The lame deflections and the "whataboutism" seem to be the new Republican tactic to defend Pres Trump's actions.

To my eye, it just shows how low Pres Trump has dragged the Republican party.

Let's see, what kind of person becomes a cop? Someone who wants to command respect they didn't earn, someone who wants to be feared, someone with few other options, someone who did poorly in school, someone who wants to legally get to shoot/kill others, someone who doesn't mind being the foot soldiers for the elites, someone who doesn't mind ruining innocent lives for a living, and someone who doesn't mind enforcing unjust laws.

AKA trump supporters

I'm sure most cops love trump. If they had real brains, they wouldnt be cops.

I disagree with the premise of nearly your entire comment.

I know policemen who went into the profession out of a desire to help their community, to help people.

Just like firemen and EMTs.

I think you are painting with too broad of a brush with your comment.

Rep. Gates (R-FL)

You mean the guy who threatened Michael Cohen?

Seems Gates should be tried for attempting to intimidate a witness.

Just saying.

#18 | Posted by LampLighter

Every single person who becomes a cop is volunteering to be the enforcers of unjust laws in exchange for a paycheck. They're signing up to support the horrible drug war, and to trap people in a corrupt criminal justice system.

The desire to help your community doesn't erase the realities of what the job requires.

Statistically, 99% of the acts of domestic terrorism are committed by right wing nationalists. Please don't be intellectually dishonest, there are no good meanings in murder, but "your" side plan far more of them and intentionally to mass murder as many innocents as possible.

It's obvious you have a real problem on your side. They are embedded, organized and funded, regardless your decision to ignore their grooming rabitity in supporters.

There are good people all around. However, they are just people failing within a system designed to fail them.

Joking aside, isn't that threat serious enough to warrant a psychological examination at minimum? Removal of weapons access? Duties? Observation? Investigations? It takes two to laugh, maybe hundreds more, even thousands, right?

That is true, but the mind-set which you bring with you into a job plays a very large role in how you subsequently carry out your duties. I see it every day in the courtroom. Good people try to do the right thing. -------- don't care.

The mindset would be "Well I want to help my community, so I'll take this job that requires me to enforce unjust laws and ruin innocent lives."

If you want to help your community and not enforce injustice on innocents, become a fireman.

If you dont care about ruining innocent lives and just want to command respect and carry a gun, become a cop.

OR become a Democrat Congressman... you still can ruin innocent lives and still carry a gun...

PLUS the pay is better and then there are those nubile congressional pages...

Nothing like being a democrat congressman catting around DC on a Saturday night..

Beats the farm animals that pass for women back home...

They enforce the laws passed according to the Constitution.

If you don't like the laws, there are ways to change them, legally. Ranting on a message board is probably one of the least effective ways to do it.

While I do not think that all laws are just, I do prefer the laws we have, to not having any at all.

That policemen enforce laws is not a negative. That some policemen go 'over the line' enforcing laws, or even commit other crimes, is a negative, imo, a prosecutable negative.

There's no need to erase what the job requires.

TRUMP needs to show America what these four democrats actually think of America. These are the faces of the "New" Democrat party. Historically, the party of racism and hatred toward middle class America.

This crap needs to continue...

No law saying she can't hire her own security guards... she could even carry a gun... many Congressmen do.

There is a price to be paid calling attention to yourself and your hatred toward America.

Eventually, America will hate you back... kinda expect it when you say your a racist and anti-Semite.

Sure. Have them investigated. But they get to choose the investigator and most of the investigation details can't be made public. Then their hand picked friend gets to summarize the report for you.

Sounds fair, right?

Snoofy, you're laboring under a misapprehension; the 2nd Amendment is there as a sop to slave owners of the Southern states, all of which wanted their crews of runaway slave chasers to have proper permits and such, operating under the aegis of "law," as it were.

Katrina.

Anyone remember the role the police of Gretna played during/after hurricane Katrina?

When the Gretna police blocked an escape route out of New Orleans and fired their guns at the people trying to get out? Killed 2 people, 4 severely wounded. One of those killed was a 40 year old disabled man.

Interesting how you have given zero examples. Maybe because you know trotting your Fox news talking points would get roundly eviscerated?

Deservedly so.

Maybe you can outline some of these "anti-American" statements that warrants a Congresswoman getting killed over it. You make a great case for better gun regulation in this country.

But, it depends on where you are.

Google "entire police force fired"

You would be amazed at how many entire police forces have been fired by towns for corruption.

Sometimes the entire police department has to be fired and they have to start over.

Think about that.

Kathie Griffin lost all endorsements and potential jobs because of that photo.

AOC has been depicted as a rape victim in some pictures the Border Patrol has been circulating. They should all be fired as well. But I doubt they will be, because Republicans are hypocrites.
