I agree, but that middle part was prettry clear cut and damning....

No, it's not.  I would encourage you to read his whole speech.  This non sense was already posted.

The Innocence Project has really changed my mind about the death penalty.  Too much room for error, too many corrupt prosecutors.

I suppose if the guilt is without any doubt whatsoever (if such is possible) then maybe I'll be all gung-ho about the death penalty, but for now, it's just too convoluted.

Well, I think we are incrementally moving to a NWO, but this video is non-sense and they put together his words out of context to make it sound like he was saying something he wasn't.

?  I made the comment:  "We would never take away someone's liberty for this kind of mistake in the U.S."  You call that statement naive, but cannot provide an example of the U.S. locking someone up indefinitely because they made a mistake like this? 

Nobody sits in jail for three months over this kind of mistake in the U.S. 

And yes, the issue is that he missed his exit and wound up in Mexico with weapons.  He wasn't trying to transport weapons into Mexico.  He simply made a mistake.  If you've ever driven into a country with open borders you'd understand how easy it is to miss your "last U.S. exit," especially in that part of the country. 


Of course they do.

Here's an ex-cop spending 5 years in jail for accidentally violating NJ's requirements while moving.  I had thought we had this case on this very board too.

I'm not saying he didn't break the law.  I'm saying several things: 

1.  These kinds of laws were not targeting people like him. 

2.  There is a lack of proportionality. 

3.  Mexico law enforcement is corrupt. 

4.  We should be doing more on a diplomatic level to bring this kid home.

It is way too simplistic to say he broke the letter of the law so lock him up.  It's much more complicated than that.  Or at least it should be.


Yeah that's the problem though, you're making a huge assumption for #1 about 'people like him' that just doesn't fit the facts.  Driving around with loaded guns, in reach, and hidden under clothing doesn't make 'people like him' look all that good, lol.  In fact, it makes him look down right criminal.  Not to mention the lying.

Welcome back.  Still the same:  Soul Crusher posting every day, his stalkers repeatedly calling him gay every day, the president lying, debt continually increasing, etc., etc.   Smiley


haha...too true.
33  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Marine to remain in Mexican prison on: July 14, 2014, 05:07:02 PM
Dude had a rifle, shotgun, handgun, boxes of ammo...
plates showed up 3 times previously doing this.
Dude tried to escape from prison in Mexico lol...

It doesn't matter what we *believe* because the FACTS are clear here.
He smuggled 3 guns into a very anti-gun country, knowing the law full well.
He went THRU the border crossing, knowing that was highly illegal.

I find it VERY difficult to believe "but but but there were no U-turns before entering another nation" haha.


Yes he lied.  Also, his guns were loaded and within his reach - not legal in CA.

And the only evidence he didn't do this intentionally seems to be his (and his moms) claim.

But, even giving him the benefit of the doubt and buying he didn't do this on purposes, he still needs to serve time for his irresponsible stupidity.

34  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Marine to remain in Mexican prison on: July 14, 2014, 04:26:22 PM
Same analysis.  Laws regarding illegal possession of firearms were not designed to target people like him, nor was prison designed for people like him. 

An absolute waste of resources and something that is contrary to the freedom we enjoy as American citizens. 


Meh...he's right in line with the basic premise.  Too many people acting irresponsibly with guns is what leads to all these stupid gun laws to begin with.

35  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Police State - Official Thread on: July 14, 2014, 04:20:35 PM
typical of you, you seem to always throw the first punch then when you get smacked upside the head you whine about "typical cop mentality" 


It should not 'seem' that way.  I'm seriously not getting your reasoning for the special treatment.  Some things we can agree with...you need to violate traffic laws to catch crooks or no trespassing signs, etc.

But this makes no sense.  In fact, it was me who pointed out Garrity as it applies to all in the public sector, and you're protected from having to incriminate yourself, when you were conflating the two.  And if we agree that we are talking administratively only, then I would think most people would expect you to be held to the same or more stringent standards as anybody else involved in an incident.

36  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Marine to remain in Mexican prison on: July 14, 2014, 04:12:03 PM
I take a more commonsense approach to this stuff.  Laws regarding gun smugglers were designed to deter and punish gun smugglers.  They were not intended to punish people who mistakenly cross the border.  We would never take away someone's liberty for this kind of mistake in the U.S.  There also needs to be proportionality.  Fine the guy, suspend his passport, make him take a geography class, etc., but not indefinite prison in a foreign country.   

We should not allow our citizens to be locked up in a cell for this long.  Even the dumb ones. 

I make an exception for those who intentionally turn themselves over to the enemy (i.e., Bergdahl). 


He's charged with possession, not smuggling so the smuggling laws or purposes are not relevant.

25 years old, combat veteran, more than grown up to know better.  He should've behaved like a fucking adult, especially driving around with loaded weapons.  IMO, he needs to do more time.

You prefer the chain eateries? Even when someone else is buying?  Undecided


We don't need anything fancy.  Hell, if you wanna buy, feel free to take me to Taco Bell and cut in line.
38  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Marine to remain in Mexican prison on: July 13, 2014, 07:52:47 AM
I've driven that part of the border and it is very easy to miss the last U.S. exit and wind up in Tijuana.  I'm sure it's a common mistake.  No way this kid should be locked up for over three months. 



True...he should be locked up for much longer.

This is no different than our argument over the soldier who went into Canada with firearms.

If you're gonna have guns you act and behave like a fucking ADULT.

Know where you are.  Know where you are going.  Know the laws, rules, and regulations of all areas around you.

He can sit in that Mexican shithole which is exactly what he deserves until he grows the fuck up.

If any of you, including Barry, wants to buy me a free meal...feel free to cut in front of me.

Some places we like include Olive Garden, Outback Steakhouse, and Joe's Crab Shack.

Help me out here, I'm trying to figure out if you are playing stupid or your hatred really doesn't allow you to have a civil conversation


Yeah...you're calling me stupid and hateful cause you're trying to have a 'civil conversation'.  Roll Eyes

Typical cop mentality. 

But, we'll cut you some slack since the SCOTUS ripped you a new asshole with your bullshit cell phone argument.

You're asking for a special treatment...one you typically don't afford to others or even victims for that matter (could be good or bad depending).  I'm advocating you be treated with equal footing.  Make sense?

41  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Thank You!!! The Official President Barack H. Obama Appreciation Thread on: July 13, 2014, 07:30:27 AM
He set no precedent. Are you referring to the execeutive orders? the type bush used almost twice as much?





lol...gotta luv how the Canadian retard rushes to Obama's defense every time.  Is he giving it to you good?

I'm certain by now that you want to be an American so bad it's causing your vag to itch something fierce.

Why did we turn you away?  Because you're dumb?

BTW, quantity is not the issue with the Executive Orders, lol idiot.

Thank you for lying about restricting lobbyists.
45  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Thank You!!! The Official President Barack H. Obama Appreciation Thread on: July 02, 2014, 06:15:04 PM
Thank you for lying to us about allowing the purchase of medicines outside the country.
46  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Thank You!!! The Official President Barack H. Obama Appreciation Thread on: July 02, 2014, 06:11:31 PM
Thank you for accepting a Nobel for doing absolutely NOTHING.
47  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Thank You!!! The Official President Barack H. Obama Appreciation Thread on: July 02, 2014, 06:10:10 PM
Thank you for lying about whether or not people could keep their doctors.
48  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Thank You!!! The Official President Barack H. Obama Appreciation Thread on: July 02, 2014, 06:09:20 PM
Thank you for having the least transparent administration ever.
49  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Cops shit7ing on Rights - SCOTUS Finally Says - NO. on: June 30, 2014, 05:58:07 PM
Do I support the ruling whereby cops need a warrant to go through someone's phone?  Absolutely.  Why wouldn't I?

Can't wait to see if how the courts will rule on the NSA spying on domestic US citizens BS if given the chance.





If given the chance, they'll avoid it.  I want them forced to confront it...though I might not like the results.  This nonsense of bending over backwards to try and find some justification to keep a law constitutional has got to go.

- For years now, reports by watchdog organizations and journalists that have shown despite Obama's promises of being more transparent, his administration has actually cracked down on journalists, spied on citizens and retaliated against those who leak information to the press. In fact, the Obama administration has become so opaque and difficult that it has earned the reputation of being far worse than Nixon, the disgraced president whose terrible clampdown of information led to federal law being changed for more transparency.



All too sadly true.
