There's a line from Men in Black: A person is smart; people are dumb, panicky and dangerous.

When you have a group of extremely angry people in close physical proximity, you get a mob. Individual morality and intelligence gets temporarily erased. No one really stops to think about whether what they're doing is "helping" because all they're trying to do is let out their frustration.

It's not good, but then again it's a worse thing that caused people to get so angry in the first place.

At this point, as long as protesters / rioters don't kill anyone, then they get a free pass from me. People are being KILLED by the very people who's job it is to protect and the story is about a burnt down building? Or that a small business owner can't make payroll for a month. PEOPLE ARE DYING. I really could care two shits about someones property.

Garner shows it's not just the south, that the US still has a lot of deep, deep issues when it comes to race. This thing should have gone to trial. I'm not saying he would have been found guilty, but no trial, at all?

Glad to know that we gays can get drunk in Vegas and accidentally wake up married. Holy crap, the next big romantic comedy: "Meg just met the lover of her life. Too bad he got drunk and married his gay best friend last week and he's not about to lose his man. Coming soon: Gay Me to the Chapel."

A guy who was my best friend in high school just came out in favor of the other side. I was a groomsmen at his wedding.it hit me like a pack of bricks. I'm not sure if I want to bring it up to him but it really hurt me hard. I guess I shouldn't be surprised since he's racist as fuck but I always figured I was exempt.

I have one guy in my fb feed who's really doubling down on the assholishness, but that doesn't surprise me. Actually, I'm really shocked and quite frankly pleased at how little negative reaction I've seen otherwise. There may be hope for the human race after all.

I've been lucky enough to only see one Straight Pride Poster. The few really die hard religious folks I've seen have been liberal enough to say, "I disagree. I still love you, I'm not saying you're going to hell, but it's not my place to judge you, that's for God."

It's close minded, but it's not that horrible.

The home of Jared Fogle, the Subway spokesman, has been raided by the FBI. They've taken computers offsite.

Though no comment has been made by the FBI, a statement from Subway notes that it seems to be related to a prior investigation. Said investigation would be that of Russell Taylor, a former director of the Jared Foundation. Earlier this year, Taylor was arrested for the production, distribution, and possession of child pornography.

Where Jared stands in all this, we'll have to see.

If he was involved and he kept all the evidence after the other guy was busted, he would be the dumbest person alive.
