    Long Beach Police officers had an "obstructed view" when they opened fire on a man who was allegedly running from a standoff Sunday, according to a press release issued Monday. "Long Beach officers, who were located on the beach, east of the foot of the stairs with an obstructed view due to palm trees and shrubbery, heard gunshots from above and saw the suspect running toward the populated beach area," the press release stated. "The suspect failed to surrender and after officers observed him reaching or his waist band, an officer involved shooting occurred."

    “When you look that closely at someone, you almost always develop sympathy for them,” Rockwell says. “It's like sitting next to someone for a long bus ride. … I want to think about who these people are and why they made the choices they did. I want to share the results of my thoughts, which are my paintings, with other people.” She was particularly inspired to paint bin Laden. “We take for granted who he was and what he did and why, and stop thinking of him as a human being with profoundly human motivations.

    Appearing on CNN, Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer told Larry King that burning the Koran was protected speech. When asked if Pastor Jones of Florida had a right to burn the book, Breyer said, "Yeah, I said it depends on what analogy you use, but the most one analogous case is that there was — you have the right to burn an American flag as a symbol." Earlier, Breyer told George Stephanopoulos that burning the Koran may not be protected by the First Amendment and compared it to yelling 'fire' in a crowded theater.

    I have long enjoyed Free Republic as a news source, and greatly enjoy the depth of the commentary. I woke up from my political coma, like many Americans, during the 2007 Presidential campaign. I have since been silently witnessing the pain and suffering of our beloved country and liberties. I sincerely want the tide of politics to shift, but fear it too late. Time will show. I hope I can contribute to the FReep discussions intelligently.
