Before the suspect's ID, somebody made the idiotic assertion yesterday that the LA arson suspect
"looks like a cop or military type. No surprise there."

The arson suspect is in custody and is neither a police officer or military/vet.

Of course, when I correctly noted the idiocy of the implication, the post was hidden by jury decision!

What a milquetoast forum we have here now with mob rule. If someone makes an idiotic statement, I'm going to call it an idiotic statement, so I suppose my days are numbered here. That rude pundit guy better not post here, either! LOL.

Later gators! HIDE AWAY!!!
I don't expect this to last long since they are getting rid of comments that question those who blame the groups that many DUers hate. Police and military here.

4. Not familiar with your post,

but if you put your correct assertion in an unduly rude manner, that may have been the reason for the jury's decision.
Civility is important, imo.Riiiiiiight.

Because criticizing someone that says it's "no surprise there" that an arsonist "looks like a cop or military type" is wholly civil and unrude. :rolleyes:

Yes, you may only direct hateful language at authorized targets, like the police, military, Republicans, business owners, Christians, Jews...

DU has always been little more than a popularity contest. DU and FR share that desire to have an echo chamber. I think they also share the possibility that volunteer mods are more or less medicated diagnosed mental illness or emotional disorder patients.

That was my first thought. I pegged him as OWS right away.
