Simple assault? CHPD is more punitive on expired parking metres. Pathetic!!!

Those guys out in Cincinnati who wanted to blow up that bridge they were black too? Oh no wait, they were white. Wonder bread, working hard since 1923. I'm just saying. What do you think is more rude, as you like to put it, accosting a man, or destroying a bridge while your fellow citizens are on it? Two wrongs do not make a right, but one clearly has a more heinous intent. Let us take a look through the annals of history, we all know who has earned the title "The Crazies".
