User error.   Is this what you don't understand?

It's the same with Larry's post about the guy from Philly.  He was treated quite poorly by Florida jailers who likely have sub 100 IQs.  You dont get great people in those jobs.

User error.

The border patrol may have mishandled this by being so extreme - and following letter of the law rather than using what understandably is not the brains of our best and brightest.

Yes.  I agree - a system without fuckups is a beautiful thing.  But you go to lengths to suggest it is intentional and promoted.

"She's just a kid - let her go" works, I guess.  Until it doesnt.

You're fucked in the head, Kiiid.

You asked what they should have done. I made some suggestions, which might as well have been in invisible ink, for all the time you gave them.

No, I don't think they followed the letter of the law. I would be shocked if "the law" dictates that they interrogate the older brother and intimidate him into signing a false confession.

So, eat shit, Kiiid, and let us know if you ever grow a heart.

The Environmental Protection Agency’s new administrator says unsafe drinking water is “probably the biggest environmental threat” the world faces.

Andrew Wheeler told CBS News in an interview airing Wednesday that climate change is “an important issue,” but most of the threats it poses are “50 to 75 years out” and it’s “unreasonable” for the 2020 Democratic candidates to focus so much on it.

Climate scientists see the necessity for broad and immediate action to address global warming. The United Nations says “now is the defining moment to do something about it.”

Wheeler was nominated by President Donald Trump and was confirmed last month. He acknowledges human behavior “certainly contributes to” climate change, and says the U.S. is working to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

See, if I saw this I would point out that there was no National income tax until after the Emancipation Proclamation. But taking memes seriously is one of my more annoying social networking traits.

CBP has maintained that they prioritize the "safety of the minors we encounter" and that it is critical to "positively confirm the identity of a child traveling without a parent or legal guardian."



Maybe I was too quick.  May not have been user error at all.

Donald Trump Jr and John Bolton berate UK leaders over Brexit

Donald Trump Jr and the US national security adviser, John Bolton, spoke out over Brexit on Tuesday in what appeared to be a coordinated intervention by the White House into British domestic politics.

Both the US president’s son and Bolton attacked British political leadership after Theresa May said she would ask the EU for a delay to the UK’s exit from the European Union; in line with parliament’s wish.

According to an official familiar with the situation, the reason for the length of the girl’s detention was to ensure and ascertain that she was not a victim of human trafficking.

But Larry thinks it is OK for "brown people" to be trafficked, I suppose.

Why do I have to;

"Type the letters shown in the picture" [I can't read half of them and have to keep requesting a new picture]

and type in a box

"What newspaper shutdown it's forums which resulted in this site"

with every post, and every modification of a post?

including this post.
