Should've have Bray beat Taker. Taker is going to retire next year. He didn't need that win. No one cares he lost to Brock Lesnar out of all people, kayfabe wise.

WWE have ruined Bray Wyatt. He was way better in FCW/NXT

-Loses to Cena

-Lose to Taker

-Put him in a meaningless feud with Ambrose which should've been way better than it actually was.

-Got rid of the Wyatt Family

Excited for Rollins. Hope he holds the title for at least a year. Dude could be the new Edge type heel.

You must not see what Taker fans say then if you think that. I've seen many Taker fans not even want to see Taker in a match since he lost the streak. A lot of them do care that he lost to Lesnar.

True but him beating Bray doesn't redeem that

So I guess if the Daniel Bryan fanbase complains enough, WWE eventually gives them what they want. It's such BS that Roman's having to face Daniel for his #1 contender spot. This makes the second year in a row that WWE's made the Royal Rumble winner look irrelevant thanks to Daniel Bryan. The last thing I want to see is Daniel Bryan vs Brock Lesnar. Really..If Taker, John Cena, and CM Punk couldn't beat Lesnar then how is it believable if Bryan does? I don't even see what's so special about the guy. I always see people on other sites rag on Cena for doing the same moves all the time but Daniel Bryan does the exact same thing yet nobody says a word. His gimmick is boring..Dean Ambrose, Dolph Ziggler, Bray Wyatt, and so many others would've been far more entertaining to see than Bryan again

Like Ziggler, like Ceasero, like a dozen other guys except Bray Wyatt. He's a good wrestler, but has the personality of a lump of a coal. There is seriously zero character in these wrestlers these days. Even Kane, one of the most underrated guys of all time, is suffering from this, though in his case, I blame the writers for screwing with his character and not giving him anything to do.

Que my all time favorite Kane moment.

Ziggler has personality. It just isn't shining in the face character he has now

Cesaro has great mic skills. He showed them back in FCW, and in his indie days as Cluadio Castagnoli.

@kuonphobos: Look up the legal definition of resisting arrest. Saying please don't touch me isn't resisting arrest.

I'm pretty sure being choked had something to do with those complications.

And plenty of racist white people comment on black people threads. Even if you may not be racist yourself, yes a white person who doesn't care about black people would touch a thread like this. In fact many white users on ComicVine (some of which are actually racist) usually go to threads like this.

@kuonphobos: Its brutality in the sense that it disproprotinally criminalizes black and Latino youth.

Eric Garner didnt resist arrest. Resisting arresting isn't lightlylappimg hands away.

And I don't see it as incompetence. It wasn't as if he didn't say he couldn't breathe for 11 times.

There's no strategic rhetoric. Whites only say that because they themselves don't care about the issues that affect blacks.

The way you are using the word brutality underlines my point and puts an exclamation point on it! Brutality is such an incredibly loaded word that to use it as an equivalent for criminalization is rhetorical hyperbole. I agree that it is wrong to criminalize but it is not equivalent to brutality.

Eric Garner did resist arrest. He participated in the escalation which eventually led to his death. Had he simply complied initially then he would probably be alive today. This is not the same thing as saying he was at fault, simply that had he initially complied, he would probably be alive today.

It was certainly incompetence. He was a big man and a short little officer attempted to do a physical restraint. That is the first error. Second, the short little officer attempted to use a choke hold which I am pretty sure is not taught as proper procedure. I know that in my time in similar facilities we were trained to never use such a choke hold and ultimately it was for both avoiding injury and potential legal issues. If you are so blinded by your hyperbolic rhetoric to not believe that police are trained to prevent injury, at least believe that they are trained to avoid legal ramifications. And finally, yes the man declared numerous times that he couldn't breathe. But by this time the situation has escalated to such a point that a tiny man had an improper choke hold on a much larger man who was not complying and there is always the potential for using a ruse like declaring "ouch it hurts" or "I cannot breathe" in order to achieve one's desired outcome. The tiny man (through incompetence) had placed himself in a very difficult position.

There is all sorts of strategic rhetoric. You have demonstrated your own belief in some elements of it in this very reply.

Your final statement is a baseless assumption as well as a perfect example of the strategic hyperbolic rhetoric of which I am speaking. White people, as fellow human beings, are perfectly capable of caring about these issues. Your rhetoric is so glaringly obvious that you didn't even attempt to mellow it a little by reducing your baseless generalization with a qualifier like " some white people" or "many white people" or "blonde white people"...

Ask yourself...why would I, as a white person, open this thread, offer a serious and measured opinion and then spend so much time trying to make my thoughts clear on this subject if I simply didn't care?

SMH

Saying please don't touch me is not resisting arrest, legally.

The man was already on the ground and handcuffed. He was already arrested when saying he can't breathe.

And you didn't open this thread, modernww2fare did.

@kuonphobos: I do think stop and frisk, the death of Eric Garner, etc are examples of police brutality that isn't just media rhetoric. No statistics are being inflated.

@kuonphobos: That's what you're tyring to imply.

That police brutality is a myth, and not as much of a problem as people think it is.

Doesn't matter how much you try to sugarcoat it, I can understand what you're trying to say with your post.

@kuonphobos:

Don't see how the narrative is mythic. Maybe because you've never experienced it doesn't make it false.

People don't report it because they know it's no point. It's not learned helplessness, it's fact.

Nor will people record it as that would only provoke police officers.

@kuonphobos: An interaction could also be a police officer just stepping out his car and slapping some kid on the street, happens all the time, and is never reported.
