And about 98% of the time, the grand jury delivers an indictment.  The prosecutor really holds all the cards; he can present whatever evidence he wants, and there are no defense lawyers present.

In this case, McCulloch should recuse himself.  As the district attorney, he relies heavily on his relationships with the police and so he would in theory be reluctant to bring an indictment against a cop.  In theory.  All you need here is the appearance of impropriety, which - fairly or unfairly - already exists.  There is no upside to McCulloch prosecuting this case.  He is in a no-win situation.

A prosecutor can "indict a ham sandwich" is a famous quote. There's not much to getting an indictment.

I haven't been following this too closely but if McCulloch is the local prosecutor he has an absolute ethical obligation to follow the evidence and if it calls for a prosecution of a police officer he is ethically bound to pursue it. The prosecutor's office is not an agent of the police department.

Why is crime almost non existent in Iceland? Why were crime rates so low in Northern Europe prior to the last few decades? Huh

Is Iceland the only Western country that hasn't lost their marbles?


Iceland grieves after police kill a man for the first time in its history




It was an unprecedented headline in Iceland this week a man shot to death by police.

"The nation was in shock. This does not happen in our country," said Thora Arnorsdottir, news editor at RUV, the Icelandic National Broadcasting Service.

She was referring to a 59-year old man who was shot by police on Monday. The man, who started shooting at police when they entered his building, had a history of mental illness.

It's the first time someone has been killed by armed police in Iceland since it became an independent republic in 1944. Police don't even carry weapons, usually. Violent crime in Iceland is almost non-existent.

"The nation does not want its police force to carry weapons because it's dangerous, it's threatening," Arnorsdottir says. "It's a part of the culture. Guns are used to go hunting as a sport, but you never see a gun."

In fact, Iceland isn't anti-gun. In terms of per-capita gun ownership, Iceland ranks 15th in the world. Still, this incident was so rare that neighbors of the man shot were comparing the shooting to a scene from an American film.

How about some reverence for God? I'm puzzled that you take such a lofty stance above others and then constantly  prove who you really are with the bile that you post on this forum.

LOL! This dude is one of the best gimmicks on here. Very underrated.  I wonder what other gimmicks he has.

Paul Ryan, who touts the GOP line, said unequivocally this morning on Morning Joe, no impeachment. Move on.
7  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Senate Democrats complaining how out of touch and detached Obama is on: August 19, 2014, 03:05:19 PM
What has obama done specifically to help cause those increases? Would the same trends have occured with someone else in office?

I have no idea TBH, probably just luck and years of policies designed to favor Wall Street. Of course there is a Congress and no law gets passed w/out them so there's that. Who is Wall Street's best friend in Congress? Chuck Schumer, the "ultra liberal" (Lol!) senator from NY. And there's all kinds of regulatory agencies like the SEC, etc. With the exception of the top people, who are political hires and don't really do shit other than angle for a better position, the staff are all civil servants charting their own course administration after administration. And of course the biggest factor, which almost nobody ever mentions, is the Fed, which sets monetary policy. Neither party messes w/ the Fed because those are the money dudes and money is the life blood of the political system.

Better yet, maybe Phil should just come on here and see if he can get finagle some money out of Uncle Junior for "training expenses."

I see.  So you have no idea what the documentary shows, you just decided to attack the director.  That's pretty simplistic.  Irony.

You really personify Skip's Rules.   Smiley

"Documentary" ... Lol! I'm not attacking D'Souza. I actually admire his ability to make a nice living and support his lifestyle on the backs of retards like you. He's filled the "conservative" Michael Moore spot pretty nicely. You, on the other hand, are a hopeless case if you believe Obama is anything other than an elitist on a very successful personal quest to power and fortune.

It's pretty sad if you were really counting on this money. I hope this was all a gimmick.
11  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Senate Democrats complaining how out of touch and detached Obama is on: August 19, 2014, 02:21:39 PM
That would be the one, full of interviews of people and documents supporting what John Matrix said.  

Did you watch it?

Of course not. Ideology is for simpletons. D'Souza is rich thanks to the large number of them; take yourself for example. Politics is a business. The endgame is power and money.  
12  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Senate Democrats complaining how out of touch and detached Obama is on: August 19, 2014, 02:02:44 PM
How so? And i never actually saw '2016', but that doesnt matter because there is plenty of other material documenting obama's upbringing and associations.

What president has seen a larger increase in the Dow, S&P 500, etc., during his presidency than Obama?

Why do you think NYC bankers pay $32K a plate to spend an hour with Obama?

13  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Senate Democrats complaining how out of touch and detached Obama is on: August 19, 2014, 01:50:06 PM
True.  That really came across in the 2016 Obama's America documentary. 

Is that the one directed by the convicted felon who cheated on his wife?
14  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Senate Democrats complaining how out of touch and detached Obama is on: August 19, 2014, 01:49:17 PM
His goal as president was to take america down a notch, and implement as much of the redistributionist/socialist/'social justice' agenda as he can.
He seems indifferent because he doesnt really care about anything other than that.

His entire upbringing and 'career' was spent with leftist '60's radicals and black power leaders, all of whom openly hated america and wanted to 'tear down the system' completely and move towards socialism. All his actions so far as president have reflected this mentality.

Seems like he has redistributed to the one percent better than any president before. I don't think Wall Street has had a better advocate in the WH. If social justice for millionaires and billionaires is what you're talking about then you're dead on.
15  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Senate Democrats complaining how out of touch and detached Obama is on: August 19, 2014, 01:26:34 PM
obama has low popularity numbers, so dems up for election are abandoning him? 

welcome to every election, ever lol.    Repubs abandoned bush in 2007,2008.  Clinton got abandoned by dems too.

Criticism from a bubble dem up for re-election isn't reflective on policy.  If this senator had any credibility, she/he would have said this in 2009.  Not now.  Zero points for this one.

A rare intelligent post on this board.
16  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Senate Democrats complaining how out of touch and detached Obama is on: August 19, 2014, 01:17:00 PM
This must really keep Obama up at night. Either this or wondering how he's going to spend the $100 million plus in speaking fees he's going to make after he leaves office.

In the case of a supplement company at least you're being paid to sponsor their products. What are you providing in return for the money here? Your dignity? There's no free lunch.

This thread is really seedy.  I'm disappointed in Big Ro but I guess that's bodybuilding.

Don't stay in Queens. It's a shithole. For $1000 a night you can get a decent room in Manhattan. That's the only way to get the real NYC experience. Rent or hire a car to get to Long Island.

If Kai becomes Mr. O bodybuilding will become even more obscure than it already is. Suburban parents can deal with their kids hero worshipping Phil, who looks non-threatening enough. If they see this grapefruit-fucker they'll stage an intervention.

23  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Usain Bolt claims 700lb squat!! on: August 18, 2014, 04:59:28 PM
I'm sure Bolt would gladly trade his status as one of the most famous athletes in the world to squat a legit, competition legal, 700 pound squat. That would really be life-changing given how powerlifting is such a lucrative and popular "sport." Maybe he could then go multi-disciplinary and chase multiply bench press championships. That would really help him make a name for himself.
24  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Protesters swarm Tucson Police traffic stop on: August 18, 2014, 04:47:29 PM
ahhh so the banks got the politicians to change the law to force them to lend to people not normally qualified all the time knowing that when it fell through the govt would be there to bail them out?

im guessing you think 9/11 was an inside job too? maybe they used holograms?

Isn't that exactly what happened?

I've spent over 20 years working in and around government and for lobbying shops. I'm trying to teach you how the process works but you're too dumb to listen. I'm out.
25  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Protesters swarm Tucson Police traffic stop on: August 18, 2014, 07:04:33 AM
LMFAO yea it had nothing to do with politicians pandering to the lowest common denominator right? the people who actually took the loans had no responsibility in it either eh?

so the govt creates an enviroment where they force the banks to lend to people and you blame the banks for lending to people?

ITS THEIR FUCKING JOB TO MAKE A PROFIT!!!

you also didnt mention anything at about all your rantings about "modern capitalism" really being corporatism, wonder why....

This is why you're clueless. Who do you think wanted the regulations loosened? The banks and mortgage companies lobbied for this and pushed it through. If you think the "government" can "force" the banks to do anything you're beyond help. Lobbyists write the laws and then give them to legislators. That's how laws come about and regulations get changed. It's a business to these people. They don't leave anything to chance. You think regular people who want sub-prime mortgages have lobbyists, trade organizations,  PACs, letc.? If the banks ever thought they would be exposed by lending to people with poor credit they never would have let it happen.
