And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    It’s a legitimate campaign issue for that demographic.

    I just read the transcript. You're right. Still, Cruz taking that case as a 'let's not rush to judgement' is typical slimy Cruz. The cop was clearly in the wrong, and an innocent man is dead. That's as easy a firing (and prosecuting) position as you'll see.

    I agree with you on this. I don’t think Cruz should have said what he did but he’s not wrong. I also don’t think the officer should be fired right away. She should be placed on administrative leave while due diligence runs its course, which will be quick. Cruz is playing politics to his base (well, he thought he was) and missed pretty badly. Cruz is also starting to have to pander to Trumps base, which is kind of funny to watch.
