Watch live: Clinton, Trump in first debate

But, Trump gets a pass for being caught in more lies. Why is that?

Brownback, advisers abandon report on Kansas economy

I don't know. For Brownback supporters, it probably was very confusing to have his claims refuted by his own report.

Letter to the editor: Trump standard

Well, here is something objective for you. Although, I suspect you will choose to believe that it is not objective because it disagrees with your preconceptions.

Lawsuit dropped by firefighter who claimed police brutalized him; lawyer says judge 'protecting cops'

It is one of the only two things that matter. If the police had no reason to arrest him, everything that follows from their action is their responsibility. Secondarily, if he did not actually resist arrest, then the police are responsible for his injuries.

On what grounds was Armenta being arrested in the first place?

So, you are basing your judgement of this case on something that happened at another time and place? Else, why bring it up?

Can you point to any information that Armenta actually interfered with the first man's arrest ?

I think the case should hinge on whether or not this was a false arrest. It is illegal for police to make an arrest unless they have reason to believe that a crime has been committed. By disallowing testimony up until the point when the arrest was actually being made, the judge has made it impossible to determine if the police were justified in making the arrest.

It is not illegal to say things to a police officer that they might not like.

It is illegal to resist arrest, but that does not mean that an illegal arrest becomes a legal arrest because you resisted. (Also, I have not seen it said that Armenta resisted arrest; that appears to be an assumption made by a number of commenters.) It becomes a different arrest on grounds that would not exist if the police had not broken the law first. It does not make the initial illegal action legal.

It might say something that the only conviction is for refusing to give his name, after the arrest had taken place.

They beat him up and broke his arm, and the only charge he was convicted of was refusing to give his name, which was after he was secured in the back of the police car. You think refusing to give your name after your arm has been broken justifies breaking the arm?
