"I didn't ignore it...I understand that it is legally permitted to use deadly force in response to a threat to ones self. I'm just asking if there is any stipulation on the severity of the threat, or if any threat of physical…"

Curtis replied to Leto Atreides II's discussion Ferguson Grand Jury Decision in the group The Great Debate
"JB, I can appreciate all of that, but surely a line must be drawn somewhere...or is any level of threat or assault punishable in the same way?  The threat of a black eye or fisticuffs is not a good enough reason to legitimize the…"

"Titus; attacked with a knife in your home - by all means, shoot him.  I agree that protecting yourself and yours within your home and when confronted by an armed assailant, is cause for such measures and is justified.  Also, RE your…"

"I am not seeking to promote anything, I just don't feel shooting him was justified.  Handguns in Switzerland are only legal for those issued with a permit, not the general public.  The only non-regulated weapons, as I stated, are…"

"Mike Brown did assault Officer Wilson through the window; this much we know to be true.  When a shot went off in the car, Brown took off on foot, so he knew he wouldn't get the better of him. The fact Wilson was still able to shoot…"

"Titus, I appreciate what you're saying and agree somewhat, I just don't think it's quite so cut and dry. Shooting an unarmed man/youth in "self-defence" simply because he might have been armed, speaks more of fear than…"

"JB, I'm not familiar with US law, nor will I pretend to be...but what I perceive you to be saying is that; whether he was armed or not - regardless of the fact that the punishment (or "justice" as you labelled it) far outweighs the…"

Curtis replied to Will's discussion What's going on in those heads in the group The Great Debate
"Not exclusively, no.  It's about culture.  Being raised by whites, instilled with the values, beliefs and world-view of a white upbringing will most definitely be contributing factors to his ability to reach the white house. No doubt…"

Curtis replied to Will's discussion What's going on in those heads in the group The Great Debate
"I'm not trying to say white people are solely to blame, not at this point in time anyway (historically)- I just want people within the ruling class (thats whites) to think a little deeper.  Saying that we've made a token gesture…"

Vytautas replied to Vytautas's discussion What Do We Learn From History?
"I think, Titus, that you made an observation on something that isn't in the text of Herodotus, which would nullify its value as an observation and transmogrify said named observation into an invention, a fiction."
