FREEDOM: New York City bike tour bicyclers not allowed to carry hydration packs for security purposes

Further proof that every time something goes bad, we respond to it by taking away freedom.

Remember how unfair it was when the teacher punished the whole class because ONE person chewed gum?

One would hope our leaders would be more mature than that.

One would be wrong.

Another city full of docile pussies who can’t stand up for their rights, and thus get them taken away in the name of safety.

I wonder how many more bombs have to go off before pockets are declared national security hazards?

POLICE BRUTALITY: Surveillance Video Emerges of Today’s Empire State Building Shooting

Nine people shot by police in response to murderer who already killed his target, and had only 1 bullet left in his gun.

He was already being shadowed by a civilian. The police could have sucker-tackled him with undercover officers. Instead, they fired 16 shots in a crowded area, and shot 9 people.

Instead of de-escalating a protecting the public, they escalated and caused the casualties to multiply by 10.

The entire country of Germany fires less than 100 bullets EVERY YEAR. ¬†They actually practice restraint in the public interest; something American cops don’t seem to understand.

The police are worse than the original gunman. The public is lucky none of them were killed.

“I can’t see this as anything other than gross incompetence by the police. The NYPD in particular has a reputation for hosing down the general vicinity – nobody should ever do that, especially on a crowded sidewalk.” -my friend Stacy

Furthermore – a murder escapes the justice system with zero consequence. Death is meaningless. This man should go to prison, and instead escaped this. If you’re going to kill yourself, WHY NOT murder your enemies if the police just help you escape it all in the end? No justice here.

RELIGION: Loyalty to your church is more important than not raping children – Not just in Catholicism, but Judaism too

But anyway, here’s a story of a Jewish person who turned in the person raping his child, and was shunned by his community, harassed, and kicked out of his residence.

Hasidic Jews, that is. These are the hardcore orthodox types. People who take their supernatural beliefs way too seriously, and then inflict them on other people.

Religion has got to be one of the top enemies for children.

(Islam is even worse in that they don’t need to worry about covering up chid rape quite as much as the other religions, because Mohamad set the awesome example of marrying a six year old while he was in his 50s, and Sharia says you execute the rape victim, not the rapist, so what’s left to cover up?)

In general, fuck religious people. Even the ones that do no wrong help prop up communities like this by passing on supernatural beliefs that have nothing to do with the modern-day world. If you don’t like my attitude, here is a cup of I don’t give a fuck that you can drink.

This is basically looking like the same bullshit the pope and various bishops have pulled repeatedly.

ABUSE OF AUTHORITY: Cops break into home without warrant or identifying selves, shoot unarmed black teenager to death

All caught on video. Because smart black people know that catching it on video is the only way anybody is ever going to believe anything (if you’re black). If a cop gets shot, the whole county is supposed to have a parade and be all sad. If a black person gets shot — well, they were probably on drugs or in a gang, right? [sarcasm]
