If he is pandering ...he's a republican. Don't you think he'd be rallying the conservative base instead of pissing them off?

I don't think he is pandering, but I'm biased by the good times shared back at State.

Oh, he's not pandering. He is earnest in the extreme. You might think he's wrong, but at least he's sincere about it. And he was concerned about it long before he ran for office.

i think he is sincere and agree with his criticism, i just didn't think he was being very objective regarding the protester who was shot

For the protestor who was shot, there were multiple very credible eye witnesses that indicated it was an officer. There's no way to know without either a medical report or a video at this point, but it's not an unreasonable belief given the available information.

Eye witness testimony in those circumstances (large mob, night, etc) are notoriously unreliable. While I agree with TGD on a lot of issues, the way he jumped on the police without an significant proof is kinda .

yeah eye witnesses are unreliable, but so are the police.

In his case, it was people he knew personally that said it was a police. In my case, an activist I know and had been following for a while mentioned it was police. It's not absolute proof, but it's very plausible/possible scenario, that we don't have information publicly to show either way.

The underlying theme of TGD's "republicanism" is mistrust for government and police are just another gov agency to him.

none of the initial eyewitnesses were very good, the eyewitness report from the person who wrote the article about watching someone die was much more credible but he was pretending like it was equal

Is this source not one in the same?

Police arrested someone for the shooting, so if they actually did it they're going all in.

Yah he's not being objective, but he's also running for office and this is a core issue for him so I guess I get it?

i mean, i'd totally understand pandering and not think twice about it, it just didn't come across like that. to me it seemed like he really can't tell the difference between eyewitnesses who were part of a crowd and likely didn't see more than a dude getting shot and an eyewitness who could give a very clear description of a shooter and scenario

And, you know, the clip from CNN that didn't sound at all like a firearm but instead a pepperball

https://twitter.com/arman_valentin/status/778884957959692289

But who needs facts when we can accuse someone of pandering, amirite??

C'mon Ben, that would require people to actually think instead of just assume. You know better.

Pepperballs are shot from shotguns. It does sound like a lot of reverb but could be an echo.

There's enough doubt and the cops have been sketchy enough that I would want to see the surveillance video they used.

the pepper shotgun rounds aren't a projectile, its just shooting the powder. the little ball things are air powered.

but regardless, its fine to want to see the surveillance video, but recognize that the witness who could clearly explain the shooter is objectively a better witness than someone in a crowd who just heard something and watched a guy go down

TGD's anti-police narrative is amusing. Picture of a cruiser with its hood popped while at a crime scene and not a traffic stop = 'omg they were blocking the dash cam'

at first glance, it does look pretty sketch... Raising the hood to "prevent overheating?" Really? "Electrical parts in the engine compartment will melt?" Really?

I'm inclined to believe the hood thing wasn't an attempt to block the cameras, but i can't blame people for jumping to this conclusion, because it's fairly common for cops to tamper with their body cams.

Seems like the cops already agreed not to do that anymore anyway, so seems moot.

But it doesn't make sense for a properly maintained car to require the hood open to cool anyway... could even make things worse in some situations.

That sounds like *complete* bullshit, but should be pretty damn easy to prove if actually legitimate since it would be a very widespread problem. Also the high that day was 84 so that doesn't mesh with the chief's 100 degree day explanation.

[Edited on September 29, 2016 at 1:06 AM. Reason : ^ yeah there is a long history of cops messing with their dash cams...i wouldn't be surprised if they fucked with their body cams too]

Exactly. Two different makes of cars, of different model years, both magically having the same problem at the same time in the same location -- while literally no other cars anywhere in the town / state / country had that same issue?

We've hit a point where we'll believe anything a taxpayer-funded fabulist tells us. But I'm the one who doesn't care about facts or actual law.

He can't help himself. Now he is claiming police supposedly tried to kill a journalist with a rubber bullet.

I guess it is a good thing that Indyweek is calling him a long shot.

We can also point out at this point that there is video evidence now of the protestor being shot by another protestor.
The bullet was intended for a police officer, but the victim essentially stood up into it. Does t fit their narrative though.
