Cincinnati Cop Charged with murder.

RE: Cincinnati Cop Charged with murder.
Bullshit, bad logic is bad logic. Thanking an all seeing all powerful God, after the fact, would be like thanking Superman for watching a rape in progress with folded arms, and only does something after the fact.

I am NOT addressing her human right to believe, but yes I am obsessesed with going after bad logic. No different than saying the earth is not flat. Instead of getting childishly offended, try understanding why the logic does not work. Humans have rights, but claims as ideas do not deserve blind value to be scrutiny free.

The fact that the mother thanked her god of choice is not the important part of this story. We don't have to bring the good feels down just because someone thanked a deity. You're being a killjoy.

Good video to watch, if you want to know how common the Jesus story really is.

Thank god we still beleive the earth is flat. Thank god we still believe Thor makes lightening. Since when does facing reality make me a "killjoy". There are lots of bad claims humans have scrapped and have evolved fine without clinging to.

As if I needed a lecture on why it's bullshit. It's just not your or anybodies business to judge someone for using a phrase. Especially if it obviously makes her feel better after having lost a son. Speech policing is ridiculous and it borders on missionary work and I never made any secret of gladly extending my general disgust for missionaries to the atheist brand.

We have a criminal being brought to justice in a country where normally they can hide behind the blue line, and you want to go on a tangent about a remark the mother made about god. Is this a thread about religion, or is it a thread about a criminal with a badge being charged with murder? Those are entirely different topics, and it would be best if you just pick one.

The fuck we should never judge bad claims, that officer would never be charged if we blindly swallowed his story.

Giving religious claims special privilege is the same as blindly believing the cop. You are having an emotional reaction and wrongfully trying to shut down a rightful objection to bad use of logic.

And it only happened because the video did not back up the bullshit story he made up.

It's really sad that things like these, which should be obvious, are seen as fucking miraculous

Let's not pat ourselves on the back too much over this just yet. Apparently, the video(I guess Min. can attest to this) was egregiously beyond defense, and the guy is just a campus policeman. I think this is more the authorites trying to appease growing public backlash against police brutality while simultaneously covering their ass.

P.S. Brian, this has nothing to do with god, so just leave it be.

Well....The hopeless optimist in me wants to say that this is at least some kind of first step....But I guess I'll be disillusioned ._.

Yet there are some cases where the prosecution decided to bring up murder charges. The one where the cop invented a bullshit story and placed false evidence close to the victim he just had shot in the back. Unawares that he was on tape the whole time. And another one, with the female black prosecutor, who's name I sadly forgot.
