Re: “Former Medina High School Basketball Player Sues After Getting Cut From Team

People constantly try to hide behind the 1st amendment when they get on the internet and say stupid things. Freedom of speech means that you're LEGALLY protected and won't be prosecuted for what you say. It doesn't mean you can say whatever you want and expect zero consequences.

If I got on twitter and publicly shit-talked my boss, I'd get fired. That's not an infringement of my 1st amendment rights. Now if I got on twitter and shit-talked my boss and got thrown in jail for it, THAT would be an infringement of my 1st amendment rights.

Re: “Former Medina High School Basketball Player Sues After Getting Cut From Team

Only pussy is you for saying that. The kid only wanted to play a sport he loved to achieve and accomplish a chance at a college career in basketball. Now he relegated to music as a backup because no one was able to scout his basketball skills. Grow up and get out your parents basement and try and do something successful like this kid is doing.

Re: “Former Medina High School Basketball Player Sues After Getting Cut From Team

Absent any other information I would agree with Count #1. Given his account of the events, it does seem like his removal from the team was in retaliation for his protected speech. There could be additional information that will of course not come out until this goes to trial, assuming it gets that far, since the school district is not going to comment on this.

Re: “15 Things Going on in Cleveland Over Labor Day Weekend

I think it's real cool that your company takes people's Instagram photos without either a. asking for permission and b. informing them that you have used their photos. This is poor practice.

A lone coyote doesn't seem likely to attack a group of 5 adults standing together. Threat level: minimum.

So, we like to be outside and cook/relax. Sounds like a pretty good thing to be known for to me.

Big gangster told on himself. He should have gotten much more time for the crimes that he did. IRS should look into all of the ill gotten gains that he spent over the years. His crimes were organized so he should have gotten more time for RICO. He got off easy. The streets will not miss you.

If you don't like the amount of diversity in this video, feel free to make one yourself, from your perspective. There is no reason one video needs to be a definitive representation of everything and everybody in a major city. My guess is that creating and contributing will be appreciated much more than an incorrect generalization like "Why is everyone in this video white?"

Re: “This Cleveland Video Might As Well Be a Tourism Video But It's Not Because It's Better

Great Video! Seems to me it's doing it's job well, and that is to get people to see what an amazing city it is.

We (people who don't live there), simply don't know much about Cleveland, and this was a wonderful brief view into a city I know very little about. Way to go to the film makers "and" Clevelanders, you definitely have a beautiful city.

Btw, this post comes from Montreal Canada.
