Re: “Meet the Pro-Slavery Fairview Park Auxiliary Cop

Freedom of speech doesn't mean freedom from the consequences of that speech.

Re: “Meet the Pro-Slavery Fairview Park Auxiliary Cop

No person who deals with the public in the role of an authority figure should ever express or be allowed to hold such bigoted views, Darby. When you're a cop, there are expectations to protect and serve EVERYONE, not suggest they be exterminated. This piece of human excrement got what he deserved.

Why would you say it if you didn't know it was a word?

Re: “Meet the Pro-Slavery Fairview Park Auxiliary Cop

Yes Darby, you genius he can say and think whatever he feels ... but there are consequences for his actions, especially when he's a bigot who works for the very people he hates but are supposed to protect. See a problem there????

Re: “Fox 8's Kristi Capel Dropped "Jigaboo" On Air This Morning

Basic Rules: 1) Don't use a word in conversation that you don't know the meaning of; 2) When you are apologizing and use the words 'if' and 'but', you're not apologizing. You're trying to pacify the person (or people) you've wronged without admitting guilt.

Please parents, teach your children this lesson early to avoid them looking as stupid as this poor woman.

Re: “Michael Symon Won't Let Donald Trump Into His Restaurants During RNC

Not cool.....if he or another business owner denied access to a patron of another faith, race, etc, "because he creeped me out" - there would be an outcry. Double standard.

Wow, the great Christian St. Ed's boy! Originally from Cleveland, used to be proud that you were from our city! Lost all of respect for you. Not that it's Donald Trump, but as a business owner you would discriminate and turn someone away based on that piss poor excuse! I hope he puts you out of business! Shame on you!

If anything creeps me out, is you, Michael Symon. Once you got into money, just like Hollywood, you turned into a creep.Take your restaurants to another city.Cleveland is too blue color for you.

"If" is never included in apologies, and it's certainly not copied and pasted ad nauseum on twitter. And apologies for racial slurs are never followed up with the phrase "porch monkeys", which she did. This trash doesn't represent Cleveland and she's harmful to the brand. This is a business decision, and a very easy one at that. Kick her to the curb.

If the courts have ruled that a Bakery must make a cake for a gay couple, how does this fool chef think he can banish anyone from his overrated eatery? Just asking"

These things always happen on Fox affiliates, too. Maybe they should brand themselves as the "Slip of the Forked Tongue Network."

Re: “Meet the Pro-Slavery Fairview Park Auxiliary Cop

Yes he is allowed to have freedom of speech No one is stopping him from talking.
But public servants can not openly support hate crimes without consequence.

He exercised his freedom now we will exercise the law and our rights.

Why are republicans such simpletons.

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.
