I'm announcing a new show devoted to explicating how Lannan's version of The Weekly Stupid is in fact actually itself wrong and stupid and is just Lannan ranting about his own personal opinions. I dub it "The Weekly Stupider." Anyone who wants to is welcome to help.

Objection on so many levels. First off this here is a copyright violation. Secondly I am completely justified in that quote on number 4.

In the month of August, the Michael Brown shooting case in Ferguson, Missouri, has caused a great amount of problems as well as attention from the media to the point that President Obama had to get involved. In order to understand how the media blew up this event one has to dissect this event into the subsections of what happened and what role the media played in this event.
The event started when a police dispatch was sent out over the regards of a robbery of a convince store. The police office then came across Brown, who attacked him. The police officer then fired 6 shots; 4 hit Brown in the arm while the other 2 struck, and killed him, in the skull. On the 10th, news is released about Brown and Ferguson begins to riot as they attack more than 30 stores across the town and several are arrested. The next day school is cancelled and police used tear gas to break up violent protests. To fuel the thoughts of alleged racism it was released on the 13th, that Brown had no previous criminal record while later that night violence spewed out and the police again fought the protesters. On the 15th, violence escalates as 200 protesters attack police officers with a bombardment of rocks. On Saturday, Governor Nixon issues a state of emergency for the Ferguson region and creates a curfew. It was also revealed that the shots were from the front of Brown which contradicts the eyewitness saying that Brown ran. This past Monday, Governor Nixon orders in the National Guard in as the Police confront a violent crowd with flaming Molotov"s. This morning, Ferguson reported their second peaceful night in a row without violent protests.
The media did a great part in inflaming the race war in Ferguson. The eyewitness had reported that Brown had turned and ran from the police officer before he was shot 6 times. This riled up the town which was predominately black. There were even tweets from News Reporters saying that they have passed over dead bodies. This only escalated things as there were reports that the extreme left was flocking to the city to only escalate the violence. After news that Brown"s friend was lying and that this investigation was done by an outside party in the nation"s Attorney General. The events, in Ferguson, in the past two days have been quiet as the news of what really happened spread.
In conclusion, we can see that the stereotypes of cops always attacking blacks and a terrible media outlet blew a small event that happens every day all over the globe into a great race issue.

Na, it was me. She posted the thread. She even said a few posts in that it was my idea, but we were in a hangout at the time I suggested it, and I was the first person to change my picture.

For the fact that the Weekly Stupid is my show (handed to me by Imabench ) and now Bluesteel wants to do something very similar. Now I can understand if it's like another random show like Drama Farm or something, but when something is this closely related.

Did you see the spoof? I'll see if I can find it, but there were some hilarious parodies of it.

I think you could make the argument that it's not cool, or that he's doing something impolite, but a copyright violation means something specific and this isn't it.

I think a critique of a show like the weekly stupid, whatever it may be called, is very appropriate though.

@Bluesteel this should really be in the misc section where this "stupid" stuff is more appropriate.

Objection on so many levels. First off this here is a copyright violation.

Lol, (1) You mean trademark, not copyright. The name "The Weekly Stupid" is not copyrightable. (2) You don't have a trademark in "The Weekly Stupid" because the phrase is not inherently distinctive and does not have acquired distinctiveness in the marketplace (which is a high bar to meet). (3) Do you really want to debate copyright law with *me* of all people?

Secondly I am completely justified in that quote on number 4.

In the month of August, the Michael Brown shooting case in Ferguson, Missouri, has caused a great amount of problems as well as attention from the media to the point that President Obama had to get involved. In order to understand how the media blew up this event one has to dissect this event into the subsections of what happened and what role the media played in this event.
The event started when a police dispatch was sent out over the regards of a robbery of a convince store. The police office then came across Brown, who attacked him.

It's actually heavily disputed whether Officer Wilson even has a broken orbital socket. [http://www.rawstory.com...] The narrative that Brown attacked Wilson is highly disputed. What kind of idiot would just punch a cop in the face out-of-the-blue while the cop is sitting in his squad car? It's like asking to get killed. But it's the obvious lie that a cop would tell if he shot a kid in cold blood: he hit me first. For all we know, Wilson socked himself in the face to back up his narrative (but not hard enough to fracture his own eye socket, which would be very hard to do).

The police officer then fired 6 shots; 4 hit Brown in the arm while the other 2 struck, and killed him, in the skull.

Shooting a fleeing unarmed suspect is impermissible, even if the suspect assaulted the officer.

On the 10th, news is released about Brown and Ferguson begins to riot as they attack more than 30 stores across the town and several are arrested. The next day school is cancelled and police used tear gas to break up violent protests. To fuel the thoughts of alleged racism it was released on the 13th, that Brown had no previous criminal record while later that night violence spewed out and the police again fought the protesters. On the 15th, violence escalates as 200 protesters attack police officers with a bombardment of rocks. On Saturday, Governor Nixon issues a state of emergency for the Ferguson region and creates a curfew. It was also revealed that the shots were from the front of Brown which contradicts the eyewitness saying that Brown ran.

He ran then turned around and begged for his life before the cop shot him in cold blood. *Four* eyewitnesses corroborate this. It's their word against one cop who faces murder charges if he wasn't deemed to have acted in fear of his life.

This past Monday, Governor Nixon orders in the National Guard in as the Police confront a violent crowd with flaming Molotov"s. This morning, Ferguson reported their second peaceful night in a row without violent protests. The media did a great part in inflaming the race war in Ferguson. The eyewitness had reported that Brown had turned and ran from the police officer before he was shot 6 times. This riled up the town which was predominately black.

Yeah a town with a nearly entirely white police force but where 92% of traffic stops are for blacks. It's a town where the police have a history of racism. Four white cops beat a black man to an inch of his life then charged him with four counts of destruction of government property for *bleeding on their shirts.* The shooting of an unarmed black teenager didn't happen in a vacuum. You can't expect black people to accept the murder of their youth lying down. If this was a black cop and a white teenager and the black cop was let off with a slap on the wrist, there would be hell to pay.

There were even tweets from News Reporters saying that they have passed over dead bodies.

?

This only escalated things as there were reports that the extreme left was flocking to the city to only escalate the violence. After news that Brown"s friend was lying and that this investigation was done by an outside party in the nation"s Attorney General.

No, you are referring to the autopsy done by Brown's parents. The results of the autopsy ordered by Eric Holder do not appear public and Wilson is under grand jury investigation, meaning he may face federal charges still.

The events, in Ferguson, in the past two days have been quiet as the news of what really happened spread.

What "really happened" is not your unsourced narrative.

In conclusion, we can see that the stereotypes of cops always attacking blacks and a terrible media outlet blew a small event that happens every day all over the globe into a great race issue.

Cops killing an unarmed youngster is a "small event" that happens "all over the globe"?
