    I understand where you are coming from, but it is not funny when a reporter does not give the WHOLE STORY. We saw lots of this crap during our recent election. We see it in publications that are sold at our supermarket checkout counters. The initial story has you to believe that the police were brutalizing this man in front of a bunch of poor & scared kids. And doing it w/out reason. Then later on another article tells much-much more and paints a much different picture. And don't think the original reporter didn't do it on purpose. It is called mis-information. Some publications like to say "inside sources have said"... that is all they need to justify their version.

    I Googled this up. Who do you think is showing the story that was first posted here (the whole 3 paragraph story w/ a scary picture of a cop ready to zap)? Anti-government and anti-police sites. Reputable news sources give the story that was later posted in this thread.

    It is not sad to dispute the accuracy of a story. It is sad to publicize a story that seems to be far from factual or tell the whole story. And yes, it is sad that this jerk put kids in danger of being hurt by his criminal actions. I hear that prison salad is paid with tax-payer money... that is the solution! Let him eat free salad!

    You can steal something as long as you offer to pay for it when you are caught.

    That wasnt Rodney, that was a hobo he saw beat up a gorilla.

    Sorry RFA, but good parenting, bad parenting doesn't ease the effect of a 5 year old kid witnessing an incident like this. It's not as simple as telling your kid the man was wrong and now all is forgotten. A small child witnessing something like that is not a good thing no matter how the parent explains the situation.

    Now I'm not saying the guy wasn't wrong. I think he was, even if he DID purchase the salad. If he was that upset he should have taken it outside and resolved it there. Without having seen the incident, it's hard to tell if the force used was necessary, although I have a hard time feeling sorry for the guy if he did what the cops said he did. But explaining a situation to a child is not going to take away the trauma of witnessing such a scene.

    That's the way I saw it. I think it sounds like something that would have happened to George Costanza. :MandJ:

    Oops, sorry. I haven't listened to that Carrington CD in a few years and just remember him saying something like "Don't ever come back to Chuck-E's!" or "You can't ever come back to Chuck-E's" or something like that. I remembered the Tim Wilson song after I had posted yesterday. It's pretty funny.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    No, but it will associate the trauma to an action (defying the police), and hopefully teach the child that defying the police is a bad thing.

    Alright here is my newly edited message then:

    I like that thinking.

    You can steal something just as long as a bystander offers to pay for it when you get caught.
