We don't need more welfare to fix the problem. Institute some sensible changes to the current welfare system. For instance, you cannot get any form of federal welfare unless: 1. Every child has a baby-daddy on the birth certificate. 2. You are either married or receiving child support for every baby (or have a death certificate for the baby daddy). This means welfare will still be available so the liberals will have nothing to scream about. Existing recipients can be grandfathered in. But it *will* mean a change to the incentives associated with welfare. No longer will the incentive be to break up the black nuclear family but, instead, it will be to keep it together. The Marxist Democrats will scream to high heaven over such a change because it will mean losing political power in the black community. But their screaming will identify them for what they are -- hypocrites!

Your answer is to be found on the south side of Chicago where even the police fear to tread -- leaving the black community a truly awful mess where the Law of the Jungle prevails with only the strong surviving, and even the strong don't survive for long.
I do like the idea of the permanent dye markers, however!
And now the idiot liberals want to swing the pendulum back to where police officers are out-gunned by bank robbers with body armor and fully-auto AK-47's (California) or by snipers in a tower (TX) where the police have to borrow hunting rifles from private citizens in order to effectively respond? Seems like the liberals just can't make up their minds!
It appears to me that the *real* objective being pursued by the protesters is REVENGE and not justice!
It's like the author of this post and several posters didn't actually watch the video of this incident. 1. Journalists have no special dispensation to remain in an area being cleared by police for the safety of the public. 2. The journalists refused to comply with a legitimate order from the police. 3. The police *DO* have the right to arrest those who refuse to follow legitimate orders from the police. I saw nothing wrong in what the police officer did in this situation. I would have done exactly the same to someone disobeying a legitimate order. There were a limited number of police officers trying to clear the area. To stand around arguing with two idiots who thought that they had some kind of special dispensation would have been counterproductive to public safety. There were other areas that needed to be cleared.
if Israel was still firing into Gazq the press would be all over it. More likely an accident by explosive=carrying Hamas.

It's called FASCISM. Government control of business and capital. Fascism is the first phase of Marxism, followed by Socialism and then Communism. Obama is showing his Marxist roots in thinking the government can tell businesses where they must locate and how they must operate. If Congress and Obama conspire to come up with legislation and/or regulations meant to target specific corporations for punishment without the benefit of due process they will be violating the Constitutional prohibition against Bills of Attainder. Of course it would not surprise me in the slightest to see the Obama and the Marxist Democrats try to come up with a Bill of Attainder. It would just be one more instance of their disdain for our Constitution.
Boomberg is a racist. He can't stand having a black sheriff. Time to call out Democrats on their racism.
