From the Los Angeles Times:

FBI investigating tattooed deputy gangs in Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department

By MAYA LAU and JOEL RUBIN
JUL 11, 2019 | 6:39 AM

The FBI is investigating a secret society of tattooed deputies in East Los Angeles as well as similar gang-like groups elsewhere within the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, multiple people familiar with the inquiry said.

The federal probe follows allegations of beatings and harassment by members of the Banditos, a group of deputies assigned to the Sheriff’s Department’s East L.A. station who brand themselves with matching tattoos of a skeleton outfitted with a sombrero, bandolier and pistol. The clique’s members are accused by other deputies of using gang-like tactics to recruit young Latino deputies into their fold and retaliating against those who rebuff them.

… In particular, the sources said, agents have been trying to determine whether leaders of the Banditos require or encourage aspiring members to commit criminal acts, such as planting evidence or writing false incident reports, to secure membership in the group.

The agents also have inquired about other groups known to exist in the department, which has nearly 10,000 deputies and polices large swaths of the sprawling county. They have asked for information about the tattoos and practices of the Spartans and Regulators in the department’s Century station, and the Reapers, who operate out of a station in South Los Angeles, according to the sources. …

In 2011, the FBI secretly opened an investigation into reports of inmate abuse by deputies working in the county jails. The sweeping probe involving an inmate who served as an undercover informant upended the insular department, sending several deputies to prison for beatings and cover-ups. Former Sheriff Lee Baca, his second-in-command and other senior staff were convicted of conspiring to obstruct the FBI. …

The lawmen accused in the claim — Deputies David Silverio, Gregory Rodriguez and Rafael Munoz, and Sgt. Mike Hernandez — were placed on paid administrative leave after the incident….

Villanueva has repeatedly downplayed the significance of tattooed deputy groups in his ranks, calling them a “cultural norm” and a source of intergenerational hazing among lawmen. He said there is nothing wrong with the clubs as long as they don’t promote misconduct. …

The secretive groups have been entrenched in the department for decades. Defenders say the cliques are harmless fraternities, likening them to close-knit groups in the military. But time and again, the deputy clubs have come under fire for promoting aggressive tactics and an us-versus-everyone mentality. …

The alleged attack by Banditos on fellow deputies echoed a 2010 incident in which a clique of deputies from a high-security floor in Men’s Central Jail brawled with other deputies at a Christmas party. Sheriff’s Department officials accused the group of using gang-like hand signs and said jailers tried to “earn their ink” by breaking inmates’ bones.

If you are wondering where the Banditos came up with their tattoo, here’s a training film shown to new recruits of the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department on how to deal with civilians:

    But Runzie Baby says that Hispanics, particularly Mexicans in California, do not have a higher crime rate than whites.
     
    The white crime rate is nothing to brag about, either, not on the West Coast. If Mexican immigrants are matching that, our entry standards are low by definition.

    California's white murder rate is over four times Illinois's. And it's not that Chicago lacks Mexicans to misclassify as "white".

    ...says that Hispanics... do not have a higher crime rate than whites
     
    Appears to be the most prominent contribution of our host.

    General complaints about crime rates is also a proxy for other problems, such as gang activity (noted here); less following of rules and regulations; less participation in uplifting civic events; etc.

    Even if the crime rate is equal or lower (questionable), that's not much solace when at the end of the day you are having to negotiate more ghetto.

    • Replies: @John Burns, Gettysburg Partisan
    Mark Fuhrman never looked that bad to begin with.

    The prosecutors botched that case - the case against Orenthal J. Simpson - completely. One of the many ways in which they did so was by failing to mention the fact that Fuhrman completed his "rehab" mandated by the department after the "racist tapes" episode. They failed to mention how he began to play basketball every morning with black colleagues. Most absurdly, they failed to mention that Fuhrman once worked overtime to exonerate a black guy he'd arrested for murder. Fuhrman got a gut instinct the guy was actually innocent, and ended up getting him off.

    Not exactly something you'd expect from a totally irredeemable racist.

    They presented none of this, and Chris Darden went so far as to agree with the defense, in court, that Fuhrman was "disgusting."

    Not exactly an ideal way of supporting your case.

    Those prosecutors behaved like idiots.

    US cop fired over deadly shooting ‘rehired to get pension’

    A US police officer who was fired after shooting dead an unarmed man was temporarily rehired so he could apply for a pension, local media report.

    Philip Brailsford, 28, killed 26-year-old Daniel Shaver in the hallway of an Arizona hotel in early 2016.

    He was fired and charged with murder – but was acquitted at trial in 2017.
    Records show that he was briefly rehired last year so he could apply for a lifetime pension worth more than $2,500 (£2,000) a month.

    The move meant he could be medically retired – rather than fired – which made him eligible for the pension.

    “He was eligible for retirement benefits, so he applied for them,” local official Chris Brady told ABC News. He added that Mr Brailsford had submitted a claim of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in connection with the shooting…

    I read about the shooting. It was an 'interpretive mess.' The shot guy, Shaver, had an air rifle. He was drunk and pointing it out a window at a hotel. Someone who saw it panicked and called the cops. When the cops arrived, Shaver appears to have been too drunk to properly comply with the officer's demands, and when he made a move like he was reaching for a gun in his pants, he got shot.

    I would not have judged the cop harshly. He just didn't have ESP.

    Is Affirmative Action merely a decades-later backlash against the Progressive era’s institution of civil service exams?
     
    It is. I watched some of the original media propaganda concerning this, mid to late 1950s. When the Civil Service requirements were dropped, it was specifically to allow Blacks to hold Civil Service jobs. It was pointed out on national TV (back when there were only three national networks) that Blacks had one standard deviation less IQ and half a standard deviation less physical coordination than Whites, but this was dismissed in favor of equity in media propaganda.
    My impression has always been that this was done to win the Black vote for Democrats, but, fact is, there are plenty of dumb political types of all races [1] looking for jobs. I suspect that one reason veterans are favored for Civil Service jobs is that they're geniuses compared to the rest of the rest of the Civil Service.
    There was no mention of the Progressives during the propaganda run-up to ending Civil Service exams, and in general the New Deal denied any connection with the Progressives, possibly because the Progressives were Anglo Saxon and the New Deal wasn't.

    The irony is that testing for jobs is slowly making a comeback and is even being marketed as a tool to help companies hire.

    Indeed and LinkedIn now offer employers the ability to test for skills during the application process. This is actually being sold as a way to reduce bias. Things in this country are coming full circle. Of course racial gaps will emerge and we’ll be back to “the tests are racist!”.

    California’s white murder rate is over four times Illinois’s. And it’s not that Chicago lacks Mexicans to misclassify as “white”.

    Notice that “white” murder rate is almost perfectly correlated with hispanic:white ratio.

    Actual top states for white violent crime rate are Alaska, WV, and Nevada. Still much lower than hispanic rates.

    1998 Ramparts Scandal was played up in the media as racist white LAPD cops, but it was actually affirmative action hires like the black/Latino twofer Rafael Perez gone rogue, with some help from famous gangsta rappers. Hollywood movies like Training Day and Crash portrayed the Ramparts scandal more realistically (even though in highly fictionalized form) than did the L.A. Times.

    On the other hand, the movie called Rampart featured as bad cop bald Woody Harrelson with slight Southern accent.

    US cop fired over deadly shooting 'rehired to get pension'

    A US police officer who was fired after shooting dead an unarmed man was temporarily rehired so he could apply for a pension, local media report.

    Philip Brailsford, 28, killed 26-year-old Daniel Shaver in the hallway of an Arizona hotel in early 2016.

    He was fired and charged with murder - but was acquitted at trial in 2017.
    Records show that he was briefly rehired last year so he could apply for a lifetime pension worth more than $2,500 (£2,000) a month.

    The move meant he could be medically retired - rather than fired - which made him eligible for the pension.

    "He was eligible for retirement benefits, so he applied for them," local official Chris Brady told ABC News. He added that Mr Brailsford had submitted a claim of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in connection with the shooting...

    Actually, whites in Texas have a higher crime rate than Hispanics.

    https://www.unz.com/runz/the-myth-of-hispanic-crime/

    The substantial regional or cultural differences in apparent white criminality are easily illustrated when we consider the age-adjusted Hispanic/white incarceration ratios in the two most heavily Hispanic states, California and Texas, which together contain roughly half of all Hispanics living in the United States. If we normalize the incarceration rate to the number of males aged 15-34, California Hispanics are imprisoned at 9 percent above the local white rate, while Texas Hispanics are imprisoned at 14 percent below the local white rate. Since California is one of America’s most liberal “pro-minority” states and Texas one of the most staunchly “law-and-order” conservative ones, and the Hispanics in both states are overwhelmingly Mexican, these somewhat unexpected imprisonment ratios probably reflect the relative criminality of the local white populations more than anything else

    Is Affirmative Action merely a decades-later backlash against the Progressive era’s institution of civil service exams?

    It is. I watched some of the original media propaganda concerning this, mid to late 1950s. When the Civil Service requirements were dropped, it was specifically to allow Blacks to hold Civil Service jobs. It was pointed out on national TV (back when there were only three national networks) that Blacks had one standard deviation less IQ and half a standard deviation less physical coordination than Whites, but this was dismissed in favor of equity in media propaganda.
    My impression has always been that this was done to win the Black vote for Democrats, but, fact is, there are plenty of dumb political types of all races [1] looking for jobs. I suspect that one reason veterans are favored for Civil Service jobs is that they’re geniuses compared to the rest of the rest of the Civil Service.
    There was no mention of the Progressives during the propaganda run-up to ending Civil Service exams, and in general the New Deal denied any connection with the Progressives, possibly because the Progressives were Anglo Saxon and the New Deal wasn’t.

    If blacks have significantly less physical coordination than whites on average then why do they tend to excel at dancing, basketball, etc compared to whites. Does culture account for all of it? Or were the old tests that concluded this alleged interracial difference invalid? Or were they valid but other factors have eliminated the gap over the decades?

    As the central banker shysters lose control of the monetary system due to monetary extremism — low or negative interest rates, asset purchases…etc. — you will see more demand for more government workers to soak up the loot created by the central banker shysters. These government workers will give their allegiance to any bastard who can keep the government loot gravy train running.

    The Pewitt Conjured Loot Portion plan will give every American citizen who has all four grandparents born in the USA before 1924 ten thousand dollars a month. The dollars will be conjured up out of thin air and handed out like candy. Eligibilty rules will be strictly enforced.

    There’s not much reason for suburban homeowners to leave California once they’ve semi retired.

    California property taxes you on 1.1% of purchase price, and assessments can only go up 2% a year.

    $2 million seems too high though, the Valley isn’t Silicon Valley. But say it is a $350,000 purchase and now $1.2 million, which is very typical for Steve’s cohort.

    The assessment now would be 500,000, so annual property taxes are $5500.

    Meanwhile, if the property goes up 5% a year, that is $60,000 in untaxed income this year, $63,000 the next etc. There’s no sweeter income than untaxed unearned income!

    Also I want Steve blogging, not shoveling snow and raking leaves!

    Thinking about the inevitable end, if iSteve HQ is sold for $850,000 more than the purchase price, 500,000 would be exempt from capital gains, leaving, under the assumption above, $350,000 subject to a 15% capital gain tax. Gains above $750,000 for married couples are further subject to the NIIT of 3.8%. That comes out to $56,300 in federal capital gains taxes. The state capital gains rate is more complicated but would will add another $30,000 at least.

    However, if the house is inherited, the base is reset, so can be sold with 0% tax.

    Is Affirmative Action merely a decades-later backlash against the Progressive era’s institution of civil service exams?
     
    It is. I watched some of the original media propaganda concerning this, mid to late 1950s. When the Civil Service requirements were dropped, it was specifically to allow Blacks to hold Civil Service jobs. It was pointed out on national TV (back when there were only three national networks) that Blacks had one standard deviation less IQ and half a standard deviation less physical coordination than Whites, but this was dismissed in favor of equity in media propaganda.
    My impression has always been that this was done to win the Black vote for Democrats, but, fact is, there are plenty of dumb political types of all races [1] looking for jobs. I suspect that one reason veterans are favored for Civil Service jobs is that they're geniuses compared to the rest of the rest of the Civil Service.
    There was no mention of the Progressives during the propaganda run-up to ending Civil Service exams, and in general the New Deal denied any connection with the Progressives, possibly because the Progressives were Anglo Saxon and the New Deal wasn't.

    Counterinsurgency

    If blacks have significantly less physical coordination than whites on average then why do they tend to excel at dancing, basketball, etc compared to whites. Does culture account for all of it? Or were the old tests that concluded this alleged interracial difference invalid? Or were they valid but other factors have eliminated the gap over the decades?

    Beats me. They did say it (on national TV), but I've never seen a followup.

    It's not entirely ridiculous. Coordination and cognitive ability are usually correlated. Hypothetically, smaller mean "coordination" could be compensated for by a larger pool of people attempting an athletic career. I've no evidence for that, though.

    BTW, note that in the 1950s just about nobody in the national TV audience would have any idea what "a standard deviation" meant. Could be the part on physical coordination was just smoke. So much was back then.

    US cop fired over deadly shooting 'rehired to get pension'

    A US police officer who was fired after shooting dead an unarmed man was temporarily rehired so he could apply for a pension, local media report.

    Philip Brailsford, 28, killed 26-year-old Daniel Shaver in the hallway of an Arizona hotel in early 2016.

    He was fired and charged with murder - but was acquitted at trial in 2017.
    Records show that he was briefly rehired last year so he could apply for a lifetime pension worth more than $2,500 (£2,000) a month.

    The move meant he could be medically retired - rather than fired - which made him eligible for the pension.

    "He was eligible for retirement benefits, so he applied for them," local official Chris Brady told ABC News. He added that Mr Brailsford had submitted a claim of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in connection with the shooting...

    Former Officer Philip Brailsford, age 28, was "medically retired." I read somewhere that his medical retirement pension benefit is $30K/yr.

    In my city a medical or disability retirement for a police officer has a minimum benefit of 25% of the average of the officer's high five earnings years (including a portion of overtime). If the officer only worked one day, she'd (tee hee) still get 25% of her annual salary. After 9 years on the job, then the medical disability pension benefit would be (no. years of service) X (3%) X (average of high five annual earnings).

    In my city, 25% of all police officer retirements are medical. The pension board is made up of 2 cops and 3 citizens and has never disallowed a request for medical retirement (nor ever conducted a follow-up investigation).

    I read about the shooting. It was an ‘interpretive mess.’ The shot guy, Shaver, had an air rifle. He was drunk and pointing it out a window at a hotel. Someone who saw it panicked and called the cops. When the cops arrived, Shaver appears to have been too drunk to properly comply with the officer’s demands, and when he made a move like he was reaching for a gun in his pants, he got shot.

    I would not have judged the cop harshly. He just didn’t have ESP.

    • Replies: @Elli
    Shaver was told to crawl down the hall towards police. Crawling was pulling his pants off - he reached to pull them up when he was shot.

    Why did they not order him to lie still? Any movement by the suspected criminal can result in a cop being an idiot. And it's obscene the way police debase those they arrest or merely "detain", make them kneel, walk backward, crawl, lie face down, follow the contradictory orders of more than one excited cop at the same time - "Raise your hands!" "Don't move!"

    Officer Brailsford had "You are fucked" engraved on his rifle, to give you an idea of his mindset going in. The jury was not permitted to know that - it was ruled prejudicial.

    There has got to be a way to teach the police how to give orders that are easy to comply with and possible. And to teach them how to treat citizens as fellow citizens and not subjects.

    Maybe mass immigration and the war on drugs have made that last unlikely.

    Says every degenerate apologist until the next nation is a third-world hellhole.

    The abhorrent state of Mexican policing, in comparison with policing across every nation in which Western Europeans represent the majority of the police force, strongly rebuts your "claptrap".

    If you "want to be taken seriously" on the matter, then you need to address the reality of policing as it is broadly manifested across these populations, and not make broad statements that attempt to state reality as being something other than it is.

    Your "power trip thing", absent ethnic context and in regard to the numbers, is another low IQ, low propaganda effort by someone who is desperate for us not to be successful in declaring third world populations and their enablers to be what they are: the cause of their own misery and that of everyone else.

    I read about the shooting. It was an 'interpretive mess.' The shot guy, Shaver, had an air rifle. He was drunk and pointing it out a window at a hotel. Someone who saw it panicked and called the cops. When the cops arrived, Shaver appears to have been too drunk to properly comply with the officer's demands, and when he made a move like he was reaching for a gun in his pants, he got shot.

    I would not have judged the cop harshly. He just didn't have ESP.

    Shaver was told to crawl down the hall towards police. Crawling was pulling his pants off – he reached to pull them up when he was shot.

    Why did they not order him to lie still? Any movement by the suspected criminal can result in a cop being an idiot. And it’s obscene the way police debase those they arrest or merely “detain”, make them kneel, walk backward, crawl, lie face down, follow the contradictory orders of more than one excited cop at the same time – “Raise your hands!” “Don’t move!”

    Officer Brailsford had “You are fucked” engraved on his rifle, to give you an idea of his mindset going in. The jury was not permitted to know that – it was ruled prejudicial.

    There has got to be a way to teach the police how to give orders that are easy to comply with and possible. And to teach them how to treat citizens as fellow citizens and not subjects.

    Maybe mass immigration and the war on drugs have made that last unlikely.

    Beats me. They did say it (on national TV), but I’ve never seen a followup.

    It’s not entirely ridiculous. Coordination and cognitive ability are usually correlated. Hypothetically, smaller mean “coordination” could be compensated for by a larger pool of people attempting an athletic career. I’ve no evidence for that, though.

    BTW, note that in the 1950s just about nobody in the national TV audience would have any idea what “a standard deviation” meant. Could be the part on physical coordination was just smoke. So much was back then.

    Mark Fuhrman never looked that bad to begin with.

    The prosecutors botched that case – the case against Orenthal J. Simpson – completely. One of the many ways in which they did so was by failing to mention the fact that Fuhrman completed his “rehab” mandated by the department after the “racist tapes” episode. They failed to mention how he began to play basketball every morning with black colleagues. Most absurdly, they failed to mention that Fuhrman once worked overtime to exonerate a black guy he’d arrested for murder. Fuhrman got a gut instinct the guy was actually innocent, and ended up getting him off.

    Not exactly something you’d expect from a totally irredeemable racist.

    They presented none of this, and Chris Darden went so far as to agree with the defense, in court, that Fuhrman was “disgusting.”

    Actually, whites in Texas have a higher crime rate than Hispanics.

    https://www.unz.com/runz/the-myth-of-hispanic-crime/

    The substantial regional or cultural differences in apparent white criminality are easily illustrated when we consider the age-adjusted Hispanic/white incarceration ratios in the two most heavily Hispanic states, California and Texas, which together contain roughly half of all Hispanics living in the United States. If we normalize the incarceration rate to the number of males aged 15-34, California Hispanics are imprisoned at 9 percent above the local white rate, while Texas Hispanics are imprisoned at 14 percent below the local white rate. Since California is one of America’s most liberal “pro-minority” states and Texas one of the most staunchly “law-and-order” conservative ones, and the Hispanics in both states are overwhelmingly Mexican, these somewhat unexpected imprisonment ratios probably reflect the relative criminality of the local white populations more than anything else
     
    The +3rd generation Mexican-Americans in Southern California are the whitest in the country, apparently majority European (according to autosomal studies). They're the ones starting these police gangs.

    Unz’s hispanic crime article is also garbage. You can search my comment history for “hispanic” and “crime rate” for details.

    There’s not much reason for suburban homeowners to leave California once they’ve semi retired.

    California property taxes you on 1.1% of purchase price, and assessments can only go up 2% a year.

    $2 million seems too high though, the Valley isn’t Silicon Valley. But say it is a $350,000 purchase and now $1.2 million, which is very typical for Steve’s cohort.

    The assessment now would be 500,000, so annual property taxes are $5500.

    Meanwhile, if the property goes up 5% a year, that is $60,000 in untaxed income this year, $63,000 the next etc. There’s no sweeter income than untaxed unearned income!

    Also I want Steve blogging, not shoveling snow and raking leaves!

    Thinking about the inevitable end, if iSteve HQ is sold for $850,000 more than the purchase price, 500,000 would be exempt from capital gains, leaving, under the assumption above, $350,000 subject to a 15% capital gain tax. Gains above $750,000 for married couples are further subject to the NIIT of 3.8%. That comes out to $56,300 in federal capital gains taxes. The state capital gains rate is more complicated but would will add another $30,000 at least.

    However, if the house is inherited, the base is reset, so can be sold with 0% tax.

    On March 7, 1988, Tanaka was involved in a controversial killing of an unarmed Korean American in Long Beach, sparking outrage among Korean American community leaders.[11]

    Paul Tanaka was a part of the Vikings due to the Germans and Japanese being on the same side of the Axis powers of WW II.

Tijuana has a big burgeoning middle-class right now. but at night in some of the seedier neighborhoods it’s actually quite dangerous. my girlfriend was asking me why are we here? it’s because of the danger and the adrenaline rush that comes from being in a third-world narco-state walking distance from San ysidro.

    State laws are not without their own particular vagueness and ambiguity.

California penal code section 69, a wobbler that can be charged either as a misdemeanor or felony, which includes threats of violence against a peace officer, is what they charge you with when they really beat the crap out of you.

Most absurdly, they failed to mention that Fuhrman once worked overtime to exonerate a black guy he'd arrested for murder. Fuhrman got a gut instinct the guy was actually innocent, and ended up getting him off.

    Not exactly something you'd expect from a totally irredeemable racist.

    They presented none of this, and Chris Darden went so far as to agree with the defense, in court, that Fuhrman was "disgusting."

    Not exactly an ideal way of supporting your case.

    Those prosecutors behaved like idiots.

    Thank you for this suppressed information.

    Police and firefighter unions are just as corrupt as every other union in our country. Probably more corrupt in a lot of cases. His payout should be fairly low since it is usually based on years of service, but who knows what kind of deal they negotiated for him.

    Former Officer Philip Brailsford, age 28, was “medically retired.” I read somewhere that his medical retirement pension benefit is $30K/yr.

    In my city a medical or disability retirement for a police officer has a minimum benefit of 25% of the average of the officer’s high five earnings years (including a portion of overtime). If the officer only worked one day, she’d (tee hee) still get 25% of her annual salary. After 9 years on the job, then the medical disability pension benefit would be (no. years of service) X (3%) X (average of high five annual earnings).

    In my city, 25% of all police officer retirements are medical. The pension board is made up of 2 cops and 3 citizens and has never disallowed a request for medical retirement (nor ever conducted a follow-up investigation).

    “Mom, Dad, I got accepted into Stanford engineering.”

    “No, you’re getting an associates in criminal justice and then into the police academy. You’ll have plenty of time later to study engineering when you retire on a six-figure pension at 38.”

    I wonder how much an LAPD cop makes.

    Twenty years ago, I went through a 5-day LAPD recruitment process in LA for out-of-state applicants, and was offered a slot in the Academy. I turned it down to finish my MBA at a Top-20 east coast school because I was going to be a successful highly-paid executive. I never cracked middle-management, never earned six figures and will not retire until age 60.

    If blacks have significantly less physical coordination than whites on average then why do they tend to excel at dancing, basketball, etc compared to whites. Does culture account for all of it?
     
    Beats me. They did say it (on national TV), but I've never seen a followup.

    It's not entirely ridiculous. Coordination and cognitive ability are usually correlated. Hypothetically, smaller mean "coordination" could be compensated for by a larger pool of people attempting an athletic career. I've no evidence for that, though.

    BTW, note that in the 1950s just about nobody in the national TV audience would have any idea what "a standard deviation" meant. Could be the part on physical coordination was just smoke. So much was back then.

    Counterinsurgency

    Could be higher standard deviation along with lower mean. Or, as you say, the claim about the mean could be wrong.

    Calling someone a stalker because they don't agree with you is a pretty good indicator of your morals, if you have any.
    Somebody pipes up when you say stupid shit so get over it.

    I sue cops for a living, and I can tell you that within the realm of constitutional torts, blacks and Hispanics commit more crimes than white people, which is why they get arrested disproportionately to the general population in the first place.

    Unlike tiny duck which provides us with entertainment fodder, you need to go troll somewhere else. Nothing you say is ever a valid argument and it lowers everyone's IQ when you speak.

    “Calling someone a stalker because they don’t agree with you is a pretty good indicator of your morals, if you have any.”

    If you had NOTICED, the person only had five posts total, all directed at me for “trolling”. That is stalking.

    “I sue cops for a living…”

    Sure you do.

    ‘Unlike tiny duck which provides us with entertainment fodder, you need to go troll somewhere else.”

    Calling someone a troll because they don’t agree with you is a pretty good indicator of your morals, if you have any, sport.

    “Nothing you say is ever a valid argument and it lowers everyone’s IQ when you speak.”

    OK, Mr. Pink.

    No visas. The new country needs to take a hard stance on immigration. Sorry, Steve.

    Steve and Ron would definitely qualify for refugee status; one of the few legitimate applications of the “well-founded fear of political persecution” standard that I can think of.
