Note: The Commission on Presidential Debates is a charade.

oe Deters, the Hamilton County Prosecutor, said this murder was “Another asinine, senseless shooting.” Deters went on to say that Dubose “Didn’t deserve to be shot in the head” and that “he didn’t even deserve to be tased.”
The video released today contradicts Officer Tensing’s prior statements. As seen in the video, Dubose was asked to unbuckle his seat belt and step out of the vehicle. Dubose apparently moved his foot off the brake, which caused the car to move. Without hesitation, the officer drew his weapon and fired, striking Dubose in the head. He was not being dragged by the vehicle, nor was his life in danger.

“It is clear that, at best, U.S. ‘democracy’ is a guided one; at its worst it is a corrupt farce, amounting to manipulation, with the larger population objects of propaganda in a controlled and trivialized electoral process.”
STEPHANOPOULOS: So if you lose in this nomination fight, will you support the Democratic nominee?
SANDERS: Yes. I have in the past.
STEPHANOPOULOS: Not going to run as an independent?
SANDERS: No, absolutely not. I’ve been very clear about that.
Bernie Sanders is this election’s Democratic sheepdog.
