    I saw Shelby Steele in a recent interview. He had a great line.

    Didn't bother listening.

    If it took until 16:32 for Al to say something about David Dorn, it's a gratuitous mention.

    The next time Al says something worth listening to will be the first time it's ever happened.

    Tawana Brawley.......What a joke that was. But Al was there for her. Shows what a piece of garbage he really is.

    As a Christian believer I was taught at an early age that , All Lives are Created Equal. I wore a uniform for over 30+ years as a firefighter and a Deputy, my dad, one of my grandfathers, a great grandfather all were in Law Enforcement. All white men of good strong faith. Surprise.....none of us has ever shot anyone not even an African American. Well that`s not exactly true they shot at the enemy .....my dad was in Korea and my grandfather that was a policeman was in WWII. But not in the line of duty as law enforcement officers.

    I'm not a fan of Al Sharpton, at all.
    But what he says here is absolutely right

    Since folks are claiming to have an intellectual debate, but aren't willing to take out 15 seconds to listen to the statement: I'll transcribe it below

    The signals that we're sending; is that if you are in law enforcement, that the law doesn't apply to you. And I'm telling you that the law outta especially apply to you.
    Because you're given special powers that others don't have.
    We don't have a badge representing the state, we don't have a gun we are carrying. We have not gone through training.
    We should expect more from you
    And if you break the law, you should be expected to pay an even higher price.
    Because you know better and you swore not to do that.

    Tell me where he's wrong.

    The Saturday Night Special folks in Chicago do have guns (Illegal). If I'm not mistaken, these are the people the police have to risk their own lives against to protect the people.
    The SNS folks in Chicago think they do have special powers.
    The SNS folks in Chicago have gone through training - though not the same as most in our country have. Respect might be the first. Following rules and regulations second.
    The SNS folks do expect more.....like children whose families are destroyed because Dad is a drug dealer, rapist and so on.

    And its not just Chicago.
