It's interesting to note that in the course of just a few lines that State Senator Chambers went from "liberal-leaning independent" to "liberal".

I think that's what's in the air. The 7th photo shows State Senator Chambers in a suit however only when he is pictured at an isolated table answering loaded political questions and listening to tangentially colorful morality play anecdotes.It's not that I'm defending State Senator Chambers or his views.I'm not.Both the US and the UK need to demand a better standard of journalism than the, outrage, trial by media, then condemnation, that currently contributes and competes for a high percentage of media dollars.

What about people named Isis? It's a nice name, in my opinion, but I doubt the owners of that name will be too thrilled anymore.

I think the OP is the one who is senile or illiterate. Senator Chambers never said ISIS and police are the same thing. His point is that African Americans face more danger from police brutality than from ISIS. How is this even remotely controversial? If you live in the USA, ISIS have no effect on you. If you don't act like an idiot and go visit the Middle East areas where ISIS has a presence, how does ISIS even pose a danger to you? People please learn to read and comprehend.


This, this, exactly this. ISIS isn't here (yet) but police brutality is an everyday occurrence for a lot of folks and a more immediate problem.
He said, "My ISIS is the police. Nobody from ISIS ever terrorized us as a people as the police do us daily. And they get away with it," and for a lot of communities, he's not wrong.

Ah yes. Black people. Many of whom want to complain, complain, complain - yet do not want to work harder in school and life and remain the lowest on the social ladder because "they'd worked in the fields" (though none living today do).


I sincerely hope you're trolling. Otherwise I weep for the future of your country, state, town and any offspring you may have now or in the future.

Wow the OP did an amazing job of reducing this guys point down in the most sensationalist way possible.

I agree with the mans point just not how he said it. His point was that people freaking out about domestic terrorism were stupid and overreacting and that the Police are a bigger threat to people (namely the African American community) than ISIS. All of which is true btw. Hes pointing out the police have the authority to kill him in cold blood and get away with it and this scares him.

Read the article and this just confirms my belief we should have some kind of aptitude test for anyone that wants to run for public office and from the ones that pass let the voters decide. Wonder how many of our current politicians we would have left. I never had any trouble with police officers, been pulled over twice "speeding" and both times never worried for my life payed my fine and moved on with life.
