    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    Amazing what jokes these people are. So to this idiot, throwing bottles and rocks at police is totally OK but police using equal or greater force in response isn't. And tear gas is hardly a chemical weapon.

    Uhh... yeah it is.

    It's just not to the scale of mustard gas, or something like that. But it is a substance controlled by the Chemical Weapons Convention.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    1. He is a out spoken member of IVFP. (Iraq Vets For Peace).

    Some of his better postings.



    Yea... I'll side with the cop here.
    He's a sonofabitch, but that doesn't mean the cops have a right to play God with his life.

    Well, that wouldn't have happened if he'd followed the instructions of the police as he should have. Actions have consequences. Scott Olsen's consequences for his failure to obey the OPD was to have a tear gas canister bounce off his head.

    Well, I was looking at it and it kept freezing up on me. However, what I kept seeing were cops throwing canisters at people. In one case, all the protesters did was come to the aid of the marine that was down. It looks to me like the cops were provoking violence. You know, I used to beat myself up for how I behaved in the past as a protester. Now, I remember what type of behavior got me stirred up in the first place. In all honesty, I think if a cop is getting violent toward somebody who hasn't been violent, then they deserve the bad rep they're getting. For those who say they were not getting violent, yes they were. Throwing a canister at protesters knowing it can hit them is violent. The spark that I saw come out looked pretty violent to me. All over what? Coming to one's aid? That's wrong. You all can support those people just because it's a conservative cause all you want to, but it's wrong. And no, nobody deserves to be drastically hurt for being a sonofabitch. You're not God, and neither are those cops.
