    DALLAS - A police motorcycle officer died after a crash while escorting Hillary Rodham Clinton's motorcade to a
    campaign rally.

    "We are just heartsick at this loss of life in the line of duty," Clinton said at the rally.

    Dallas police spokesman Sgt. Gil Cerda said he had no details on the crash, which happened shortly after 9 a.m.

    Makes you almost, ALMOST, feel sorry for her.

    You're a fucking idiot.
  3. Can't disagree, 'beat.
    I mean, Christ, anyone who tells me that this isn't sexism can whistle up a tree.

    I wonder what time 'yab meets with the other misogynistic Klansmen for the circle jerk.

    Any focus on Clinton and not on the deceased officer is completely misdirected...

    Condolences to the family...

    Seriously, what the hell is wrong with some of the people on this board? First we get poindexter cracking jokes about girl's high school basketball on the thread about the girl who collapsed and died during a game and now heyabbott just has to make a snarky comment about the death of a police officer who was doing his damn job.

    I know this stuff isn't surprising, especially from 'yab, but damnit people, learn to show a little fucking compassion when somebody dies.

    RIP to the police officer. Trouser_Buddah is exactly right. Our thoughts should be with the family that lost a loved one.

    Jesus, that's awful. How did it happen? Somebody run a red light?

    There are some threads related to death that evolve into light-hearted banter. But, for the most part, those deaths usually have the common theme that the person's demise was something they did (either accidently or intentionally) by their own fault, i.e. Brad Renfro OD'ing after a long history of drug abuse.
    Then we have the threads where the story is truly tragic, where the person who died is truly a victim of circumstances beyond their control. And, some people don't stop and think long enough to distinguish between the two.
  9. When I was organizing for a presidential campaign in 1976, we failed to coordinate with the police and "secure" one of the intersections along the route. The car carrying the NYT correspondent got T-boned. He was fine, but he wasn't happy when I picked him up and asked him if there was any way he could not write about it. My guy lost, by the way.

    Not only was the original post classless, it's not even a good smear job. It's akin to calling me out on the board because an usher collapsed at one of my games the other day. Stuuuupid.
  12. Ah.
    Back on topic, I see.
