Ben Carson stated, “If you have an unpleasant experience with a plumber, do you go out and declare a war on all plumbers?” he asked. “Or teachers or doctors? Of course not. And it makes no sense to do that with police either.”

These TYT types probably feel all bold and edgy calling a black guy stupid.

Everytime Ben Carson opens his mouth I pay attention, in the same way I did when Sarah Palin opens hers. You just never know what might come out of it.

Any more than it makes sense to burn your own neighborhood or destroy businesses of innocent people. But then the animals we're talking about don't listen to an intelligent black man like Ben Carson. If they listen to anyone it's to idiot race baiters telling them to blame others.

Weird...the plumbers don't shoot or kill me, nor are they ran by the government. They have no special treatment by courts, etc etc.

And yet...I hate them...with a passion. no joke. Every darn plumber has been a pain to deal with.

Mr Carson is using a false analogy.

Was Carson wrong to argue that people should not "go to war" with the police as the rioters were literally doing yesterday? Was he so wrong in arguing this that ad hominem attacks on him are justified?

I think it is a clever analogy. You don't go after someone who does you wrong. You use the legal system.

You mean the one that overwhelmingly favors the person or group that has done you wrong? LOL. wow...thats hilarious.

Lets say you win..they give you money...that they tax from you and your neighbors. Its not real to them, its not even all that punishing.

Because it often happens that the plumber shoots and kills them or breaks their necks.

Kind of hard to do after you have been killed.
