Agreed, Dorothy! Good post!

Yes, P Allen! That's exactly what we do. It's called due process and it's just a tiny little right guaranteed under the 14th Amendment to the Constitution.

Well, Dorothy, I started off agreeing with you until you went into yet another hysterical anti-NRA nonsensical rant! So, let me correct you. First, the NRA will be the first to tell you that they do not condone firing weapons into the air and doing so is a violation of city ordinances and/or state statues, and is definirely not responsible gun ownership. Second, the fact that he had marijuana could, depending on how much pot he had in his possession at the time, get him charged with a federal gun/drug charge. I saw nothing in this news blip that would indicate he had enough pot to warrant federal charges, but it can happen.This means, upon conviction, he cannot own firearms. Third, the NRA doesn't "come after" anyone. The NRA will campaign against anti-gun politicians. The NRA will offer firearms safety classes to educate and train any hysterical, anti-gun leftist who is willing to listen long enough to attend. The NRA will offer Eddie the Eagle firearms safety classes to school age children that teaches them to never touch guns without adult supervision and approval, and if they should find one lying somewhere, to go tell an adult. The NRA will train military, law enforcement, and civilian firearms instructors in all disciplines of firearms training. Finally, the NRA will lead the fight to keep guns out of the hands of violent offenders, such as the SCOTUS ruling that convicted felons are not required to register their firearms as it would violate their 5th Amendment right against self-incrimination since they are not allowed to own firearms. See Haynes v. U.S (1968). If you have any other concerns about the NRA, just remain calm and take a National RIfle Association endorsed class.

Richard, Tazing a suspect armed with a firearm is akin to bringing a butter knife to a gun fight. Anybody that wants to live longer than 10 seconds in a lethal force encounter uses lethal force to fight lethal force.

Congratulations, Mike! Best of luck on your next chapter, whatever that may be.

Don't hold your breath, Gary. I was unable to find ANY story in the LJW about the Clinton e-mail investigation between the Democrat Convention and the election last year. Guess they didn't have room for it with all of the Trump bashing.

I find it amusing that a "newspaper" that refuses to print anything negative about the Democrat Party prints an article that claims that the allegations of "fake new" are fake.

Well, there's no reason for Topeka/Shawnee County to even have a trial now! Thomas already has the officer(s) convicted! Um, you do know that so far, everything has been done as Standard Operating Procedure, right? The case was sent to the DA for review to see if any charges are warranted. It doesn't mean there will be, it doesn't mean there won't be.

Mr. Lee's post is a classic example of someone learning everything he knows about law enforcement tactics from watching Adam-12 reruns.
