“For god's sake, READ THE ARTICLE. They had no idea there was a child in the car.
If you knew anything about how LEO's operate, you'd know they haven't shot out tires on cars since the 90's. And armed 'only' with a vehicle? Maybe you've forgotten how much damage a person can do from behind the wheel of a car.
I'm as liberal as it gets, but you are a serious bleeding heart. Get some perspective and actually READ the articles before you comment.”
“Boo hoo. A service you didn't pay anything for wasn't as successful at generating income as the company that supplied it wanted it to be, so they canceled it. Use gReader and get on with your lives, you insufferable whiners.”
“"Why do we continue to treat dog deaths s if they were almost akin to a humans...."
Because dogs were the first domesticated species, they literally helped us to survive by guarding us and hunting us. They provided a greater use than food, and a fondness for the breed ingratiated itself into the human psyche. Or maybe you were just asking for the sake of rhetoric, in which case, your rhetoric fails, because you're transparently using a case of tragic animal abuse to advance your own (pathetic) agenda.
P.S. For every animal you don't eat, I'm going to eat two. (Thanks, Maddox!)”
“Because when we kill and eat animals, we're at least benefiting from their demise. This is wanton destruction, for destruction's sake. Can you not see the difference, or are you just being myopic for the sake of having a soap-box to preach?”
“I think there could be a correlation between sexual activity and killing--in the case of psychopaths, at least--since they're both the two most carnal instincts left over from cave-man times. But that's just me supposing over here.”

“Well, I'm just saying a woman (or man) wanting to be "pounded"..or whatever.. doesn't mean she's a killer. It's just a sensationalist element of this case.”
“Whenever I hear the term "Mainstream Media" said by a republican, I know that whatever he/she is about to say (or has just said) is utter nonsense. They might as well just say "The Legion of Doom" and they'd sound about as well-informed.”
“I imagine people imprisoned during their trial have tried this 'ooh, I'm too hungry and have a headache' excuse before. I'm sure there's some legal mechanism to prevent that becoming grounds for an appeal.
But I'd bet my bottom dollar that there's going to be an appeal anyway. This brazen liar will take her "Not li'l ol' me!" act all the way to SCOTUS if she can.”
“This is one of the saddest things I've read today. This man has--for all intents and purposes--thrown his life away, and he may have done irreparable damage to his own child. That poor baby may never reach his full potential because of one act of frustration; to have one moment change a person's entire future when they're so helpless. It makes me angry and sad, and this man will pay for it for the rest of his life. It's all so sad.”
“Unless the defense can prove that he was a zombie (making the 27 stab wounds and slit throat a pre-amble to destroying his brain), I think this lady's gonna have a hard time proving that he was worse than she is.”

“I just had a vision from the first movie The Terminator. The damn thing wouldn't die, even though parts of it were being cut off. In the end the hand and head were crawling towards them.”
“While I agree they shouldn't ever be allowed back into society, it sucks that society will have to foot the bill for their food & board for the rest of their lives. Might just be easier to give them to the Scientologists to be raised on Sea Org.”

“Give them ot scientology and Tom Cruise will just abuse them as boy toys.”
“If you know of some method by which to turn humans into animals (and I'll just BET you do!) please let me know! By the way, being a lab rat and contributing to the advancement of medical science would *still* be more noble than being a conspiracy theorist, and probably comes with better benefits. Have a good day, and don't forget to take your pills!”

“Hi, responded earlier but my post was deleted by the mods, not because I didn't meet standards”
“Don't forget that some of them are merely trying to get attention because they're woefully insecure, and that some are merely unintelligent, believing a theory presented to them because it's more 'interesting' than the truth.
But, yes, a conspiracy theorist will see a lack of evidence as evidence, and evidence that disproves their theory conspiracy unto itself. It's a self-perpetuating mindset, and it's very, very pathetic.”

“Nathan, you are very good at catagorizing people. I would LOVE to hear more.”
“Here's a general guideline for how to create/subscribe to a conspiracy theory:
First, make sure you have a low degree of self-worth. This will greatly assist in motivating you to come up with some reason that you're 'special' or 'smarter than everyone else.' It helps if you're physically unattractive, possess a sub-average intellect, or are a generally boring person.
Second, find some news event; the bigger, the better! Find an inconsistency with the reporting of the event. This will be easy, because news organizations usually rush to report without often verifying their information, and it will play right into your hands.
Third, try to find some correlation between this event and another contemporary issue. As a rule, try to correlate it to something as controversial as possible; remember, you're trying to look smart AND interesting!
Fourth: When people point out that you're clinging to straws (which you are, of course) call them sheep, or insinuate that they're willfully blind. This will insulate you from the criticism you deserve AND keep you from having to defend your outrageous claims. Remember, you don't need proof! You have accusations!
Fifth: Continue wasting everyone's time for as long as possible until people finally listen to you (unlikely) or some new event happens to which you can attach a new conspiracy theory. Eventually, SOMEBODY will think you are smart. Good luck, theorist! Now get out there and waste some oxygen!”

“You like to hear yourself talk.
Tell me, do you sound this smug to yourself, Nat?”
Charles Robert Graves on Feb 14, 2013 at 18:23:39
“Well, played Nathan. Your detailed profile of a conspiracy thoerist would certainly qualify you as one, descriptively speaking of course.”

“The term conspiracy theory is used to marginalize those that accept the bitter truth. its all an illusion folks the American dream , you have to be asleep to believe it.”
“So, when the LAPD invariably shoots at and kills the wrong person, they can just go "Whoops, mistaken identity. Our officers had only seconds to act!" are we to assume there will be no consequences? I'm starting to root for Dorner, now.”
“We need to forgo prison for people like her and just enroll them in gladiatorial bloodsport. You're good at killing people? Well, now you get to try to kill OTHER killers, before they kill you. Let's see how long you last.”
