Tragedy: Lunatic Executes 2 NYPD Officers Comments (0)

O-NYPD-OFFICERS-570

An armed madman—who had earlier shot his girlfriend—decided to make his last act before committing suicide the murder of two NYPD officers. He linked the senseless crime to vengeance for recent acts of police violence against unarmed black men, Michael Brown and Eric Garner.

It's appalling that this man had access to a gun to begin with, and that he would murder two innocent men for his own twisted reasons. Gutless and depraved. NYPD lives do matter—no one disputes that.

Nor is there any sense in the inflammatory statements of the NYPD union boss, who explicitly laid this murder at the feet of NYC Mayor de Blasio and the protesters who are outraged at the deaths of Brown and Garner.

That's absolutely wrong. The only way that bit of logic works is if you believe everything a police officer does is always acceptable and they are above the law. Otherwise, why not go up the chain and blame the officers involved in the killings of those two black suspects?

None of that bullshit works. The man responsible for these officers' deaths is the man who blew them away. He was unhinged. Never have the leaders of the protests or the families of the dead black men called for violence. It's antithetical to what is outraging them in the first place.

As Jon Stewart said, you can deplore police brutality AND still support good police.

These murders are despicable, as is anyone who sees them as justified.

Pardon Me For Living Well Comments (0)

Mark-Wahlberg-mark-wahlberg-14128264-1024-768

I think Mark Wahlberg has brass balls to request that he get a pardon for crimes he committed in the late '80s in Boston, incidents that would be classified as hate crimes today. For one thing, he was lightly punished at the time—why expunge the only thing remaining, his record? For another, do you seriously think average citizens are routinely allowed to receive pardons for serious crimes they committed as teenagers? His argument seems to be: I'm a rich, famous, successful person now, so I deserve this. I say he doesn't. You?

Last night was the fourth annual Cyndi Lauper & Friends Home for the Holidays concert to benefit her True Colors Fund. The lineup was so eclectic as to almost be off-putting; we're so used to compartmentalized music it seemed jarring to consider hearing Cyndi, Metric, Sufjan Stevens, 50 Cent, Nataline Maines and Salt-N-Pepa all on one bill.

But the diversity of artists led to a long, fun, interesting show, one spiked with equal parts good cheer and defiance.

Emcees Rosie O'Donnell and Laverne Cox were a curious yin and yang, with O'Donnell condemning Woody Allen and Bill Cosby while Cox preferred “happy thoughts” and red-carpet posing.

RosieOf her fellow comic, O'Donnell said:

“Twenty-three women in their seventies just woke up and thought, 'What should I do today? Go to Target, or fuck up Bill Cosby's life?' I say he's guilty, and it's sad because it's like a death: We lost Joan, we lost Robin, and we lost Bill Cosby. That's what it feels like to me.”

The crowd approved. But there was a mixed response when she invoked the Hands Up, Don't Shoot! and I Can't Breathe populist outrage that protesters not far away were expressing—some boos, some oohs, some cheers. O'Donnell was perplexed.
