It’s a report from last week’s homecoming party.
UPDATE: Link fixed. Sorry about that.

Link is broken.
Officer shoots a man who is handcuffed in the back of a patrol car with an AR-15:
Justified apparently. Well, at least he missed! (How did he miss???)

Real link is the huffpo portion here:
Looks like it wants that second forward slash:
I didn’t know Radley was a “black voice”.
He’s a better voice for black people than Al Sharpton or Jessie Jackson. What black guys did they get off death row?
There is no better phrase than “botched” raids? Botched really understates the clusterfuck that is a police raid where innocents die.
I think there is a better phrase than ‘botched’ raids: successful raids.
People need to stop pretending that killing people, even innocent people – even getting the wrong house – is a serious ‘mis’use of police power.
It’s all part of the plan. That’s why nobody panics (except for crazy libertarian Kochctopus suckers and criminal-loving liberals and sister-fucking hillbilly gun nuts and black-power race hustlers).
Although the raid on Cory in particular can be said to have been botched: a pig died, and Cory lived. If that’s a ‘botched’ raid, I say I’d take those over the successful kind any day.
Hooooly cow, the comments. Yargh.
