    [–] Harley Barber apologizes for racist video, says she was expelled from Alabama pickymeek 1 points ago in news

    No one stopped her speech. She probably broke some kind of conduct rules that she likely agreed to when she started school. Do that, get dumped.

    [–] MN man shoots and kills teen in apparant road rage incident. pickymeek 3 points ago in news

    It is brandishing, but I do sort of agree with you on the part about it being OK(ish) in certain circumstances. I could envision a circumstance where someone was legit about to get shot, and in an attempt to keep from having to kill someone, you warn them that they have now crossed into deadly territory. BUT, that should be more of a plea than a threat. "PLEASE stop, I do not want to hurt you, but if you continue, I'm going to have to use deadly force".

    This seems to be what the law in my state is attempting to accomplish. Something about "when a reasonable person would believe physical harm is imminent" or something. I take that to mean brandishing is OK if it's meant to avoid its use.

    Edit:

    And thanks. More people should realize that being wrong and admitting it isn't something to be ashamed of.

    [–] Texas Man, Convicted of Sex Crime, Gets Reversal of Fortune—From His Phone pickymeek 7 points ago in news

    I extend this sentiment to the death penalty. Imagine having a loved one (or.. anyone) killed by the State just to find out later that it was a mistake.. There's no going back on that. They're gone.

    Y'know what.. Reading up on my state and it looks like a very fine line. Informing someone you have a gun is considered "Defensive display of a firearm" (which I think is just a term for brandishing) which is OK in a very particular circumstance.

    because she heard a dirty word.

    It's not so much the word as it is the racism. The word is just a convenient way to identify racists. It wasn't a mistake, the bitch doubled down.

    Same reason the TV network severed their relationship with that dipshit from Duck Dynasty. A school or a TV network aren't the government.

    If I go tell my boss to fuck himself I'm not protected by free speech. I'm getting fired.

    Good shoot.

    Pretending you have enough information from this article to make a determination is idiotic.

    I don't think it was brandishing if he in fact:

    He put the gun in his pants pocket and told the passenger that he was armed

    [–] Road Rage ends with guy getting pepper sprayed. pickymeek 1 points ago in PublicFreakout

    Last time I had a road rage incident we ended up at a red and I was the front car. The guy started getting out of his car and I reached for my gun. Luckily the light turned green..

    Don't fucking walk up to other people's cars in the middle of traffic. Dude is lucky spray is all he got.

    Ok.. Take that logic and extend it to this.

    If you believe a presidential election can be rigged, what about a lesser election?

    [–] Texting while driving will now get you pulled over in Tucson pickymeek 1 points ago in Tucson

    You can fiddle with the radio without looking at it because it has physical buttons. I used to be able to text without taking my eyes off the road (save for reading the incoming text) when I had a flip phone using T9.

    That is no longer the case since you can't feel where you are on the "keys" on a touch screen.

    There's a difference between changing the channel on the radio and hammering out a text message.

    Jesus.. Is being a low information voter a thing to be lauded now?

    Is the Trump election not fresh enough in your mind?

    Texting and driving endangers me when I'm on the road so fuck that noise.

    Your comment reads like a caricature of what a right wing person thinks a lefty thinks. That coupled with it being so young makes me thing you're not being genuine.
