an officer that choses to use deadly force over pepper spay should be fired
The police officer who shot the innocent dog, should be terminated from his Job. What he did was cruel, he traspassed private property with out owner concent, therefore at least what the officer could have done was a fair warning before executing exsesive force, and kill the dog owner. Shame on the police officer commands.

This is a poorly written article by a half-ass writer who knows nothing about The Jazz or hip hop. What a joke.
You're way off on # 5. When he says "loyal like utah jazz fans" he isn't referencing that the jazz lose a lot. You obviously know nothing about the Jazz, because since the 1983/1984 season the Jazz have only had 3 losing seasons. "who have dealt with many losing seasons" lol what the fuck man? You are obviously an idiot. And in #5 saying Stockton left Malone in 2003 when he retired? You obviously know nothing about the Jazz. And for that matter, you know nothing about rap.
Where is the Public Enemy Reference? I dominate like Karl Malone in the paint. I think you broke down these songs just like a Dumb ass Utah boy would. Stick to what you know because rap is not one of them.
Ah, man, you missed a big one!! Fabolous, Trade it All: "Don't front, ma. You know the way I ball's the pick and roll like Stockton and Malone when we play the mall. I be going out my way to call cuz I like the way your hips make them jeans seem like they ain't too small. "

You missed the best one of all, where The Roots reference Shaq slappin' Ostertag.
Ed, Thanks for posting that Roots Ain't Sayin Nothin lyric. Damn, that was a good one.
"I just backslap that ass like Shaq did Ostertag"
The Roots, Ain't Sayin Nothin' New
It's not exactly a pure "rap" song, but Transplants' song "Diamonds and Guns" says "bombs goin' off in Sierra Leone; takin' more shots than Karl Malone. " And Son Doobie raps in it so it sort of counts.
The author of this article made mistakes interpreting the rap lyrics in almost all 25 points. Made this article horribly hard to read. Stop it Colin Wolf. You`re not `bout that life.

I am Curt Bramble's opponent in the Nov. election for Utah Senate District 16. Bramble is the state chair for ALEC. We don't need 'Smart - ALECs in Utah' I am opposed to the Big $$ Bramble and his croonies have received from ALEC and its backers (Bramble has $123,000 to date with $118,000 from corporations, many based outside Utah) I'll be there on July 25 with MY Sign ....
Well said. I couldn't agree more.
"Utah politics are in dire need of a woman’s touch", this is EXACTLY what's wrong with politics, we say we need more women, more homosexuals, more minorities in politics, but what about good leaders? A diverse leadership does not make a great one, a well organized body with people who know what they are doing makes a good government, something we severely lack today. Todays electorial system reminds me of American Idol, where we elect our leaders based on how well we like them as a person, a celeberity if you will. A democracy means "the people have decided" but we just get to choose between a select few who are not (in my opinion) even remotely qualified for public service of any kind because we are told that those are our options, when really there are some excellent businessmen out there who could make some REALISTIC, EFFECTIVE changes. Stop making politics a game and start making some real changes.
Safe Zones for gay people? No. . . please. . . .stop. I have to ask a question and then go attack the cover story: Are you trying to tell me that LGBT people need a "safe place" to hide from time to time? Years ago, I taught my little children to seek safe haven in an office or store if they thought someone was trying to follow or bother them. I'd hate to think that they would have to stand in line with a 300 lb, bearded, transexual fathead dressed like a hooker. And training for detecting discrimination? Jesus, I'd like to be fly on the wall is those sessions.
You're so grandiose. Sheesh... whatever. A couple of things here: 1) Your understanding of socialism is zero. Big government? What has that got to do with socialism. I as a socialist couldn't care less about big government, nor small government for that matter. I care about having good governance, and overcoming bad governance. A "small" government can be just as heartless, exploitive, and evil as any other size can be. Our current "Big government" is actually the creation of Capitalism, bought and paid for to serve the interests of big finance and large corporations; that's not socialism, it's the capitalism of which Reagan and Thatcher (whom you paraphrased) helped create. (And I know what happened in Russia and China, and I, like so many other socialists before me, disagree with the state capitalism those states instituted. They were not socialist, read Marx.)
2) Despite your hope that "Christ will show me that Big Government is not the answer", the Episcopal Church, of which I am a part, is not a stepping stone towards some kind of dumb-me-down right-wing political ideology. It is the result of many years of reading and searching the scriptures to see and understand God. It is my hope that someday you'll put behind you your cheesie political god, which you label "Jesus", and find out who Jesus really is, so we can take communion together before the alter of the Lord.
My mistake. I guess name calling only goes one way with you. I'm glad you're a Christian, though not a very smart one either (like me :) obviously. So maybe there's some hope for you. I pray that Christ will show you that Big Government (socialism) is not the answer. Big Governments always corrupt and squash the people with their power, while they live in comparable luxury (look at Russia). No more freedom for the average Joe.. And all that our Founding Fathers (and mothers, sons and daughters) fought for, is lost. What a waste. The problem with socialism is that, eventually you run out of other people's money. Instead, why don't you just work hard or come up with a good idea and share it and make the world a better place. Stop wasting your time trying to take that away from everyone else. Get a life! Good luck with finding your way, Thomas, and goodbye. You won't be hearing from me anymore.
Hitler cultist? Proud of it? Probably don't believe in God either? My goodness, you are incredably stupid. I mean lightning stupid. The kind of stupidity that just shocks people when they see it. (By the way, even though I'm sure you won't be able to understand this, but I'm actually an Episcopal Christian, and I stand with the enemies of Hitler.)
