    Teachers never dissapoint. lol.

    The teachers union is pitting its members against cops — by sponsoring and promoting the Rev. Al Sharpton’s anti-police rally in Staten Island next week, The Post has learned.

    The United Federation of Teachers sent an “action alert” *e-mail that even promised free transportation to Sharpton’s Aug. 23 demonstration that is billed as a march for justice for “victims of police brutality.”

    Some teachers were furious that the union would take such a prominent role in the event.

    “What a disgrace. What is going on with the leadership of the UFT thinking it’s OK to protest against rank-and-file cops?” asked one teacher. “Would we want cops protesting in front our schools over low test scores?”http://nypost.com/2014/08/16/teacher...gainst-police/

    Killin' time reading the Post today.

    Seems specious to call this an "anti-police" rally. It's a march for victims of police brutality. Are you for police brutality? Perhaps the teachers are seeing a disproportionate number of their students become victims. It is hard to educate people into good citizens when they feel the base institutions of our society are against them.

    You should be disappointed in your spelling teachers.
    If all the atheists left the USA, it would lose 93% of the National Academy of Sciences, but less than 1% of the prison population.

    Homerun. Cops need to get back in their place to be respected once again. They're to be seen, not heard.

    So people who oppose choking people to death are anti-cop?

    I wasn't aware that cops were pro-choke people to death.

    Well, you should be aware by now. It's a staple of their training. They don't get put out on the streets (at least not in cities) until they can choke people to death.
