    This story was included in my Blog post yesterday, when no verdict had not yet been handed down.

    Cop was kicking the guy and somehow hit him in the head, knocking him out.

    The jury heard the facts and they have reported their verdict.

    Hoping Dover keeps its cool.

    Has Lowe’s run out of plywood yet?

    There is never an excuse for this kind of brutality against a unarmed suspect. While a jury may have found him not guilty of criminal action, the Dept. action should be telling as well as any civil case brought by the victim.

    The time has come to send a message to the people we trust to protect us. If you do not have the patience and temperament to protect and serve, maybe you should be a house painter?

    Last night I was watching Police Story, the seventies TV series. One of the cops joked about the college boy government men with their “crew cuts”. Most cops in the seventies had civilian hair cuts. Why do almost all cops have military style haircuts now? Just an observation.

    “Cop was kicking the guy and somehow hit him in the head, knocking him out.”

    Somehow? You watched the video and couldn’t figure out how it “somehow” happened? I knew you were stupid; I didn’t realize you were blind.

    I wonder how people would be responding if it had been a black cop and a white suspect?

    Geezer…..This is the last time I will respond to you.

    Is calling people stupid the way you argue?

    Does this give you great superiority of some kind, to get on a public forum and call another person stupid?

    Please do not respond. I’ll not address you ever again except now I suggest that maybe calling people stupid is not a good argument.

    And guess what ….I never watched the video.

    I rest my case on the decision of the jury. And had the jury found him guilty, I’d have been good with that. The jury not only saw the video, they heard the evidence and testimony.

    Sure, juries get it wrong sometimes, not often. Still and so, I’d rather rest on a group of individuals with no dog in the fight than someone who debates by calling people stupid.

    I found it ironic that Pat Fish does not approve of Geezer calling her “stupid” yet she supports Donald Trump who calls people “stupid” as much as possible. Then Geezer calls Pat “stupid” yet I believe Geezer does not approve of Donald Trump.

    Oh yes, police thuggery is not something for anyone to lose their cool over.

    I’m so confused lol

  12. geezer says:

    I only call stupid those who have repeatedly demonstrated that trait: You, Don Ayotte, most of the DP clown car…the list, sadly, goes on and on.

    An opinion based on as few facts as possible — that seems to describe your position pretty accurately, doesn’t it, considered you haven’t watched the most important piece of evidence in the case — approaches a textbook definition of stupidity. At least, it does once you brag about it.
