Who’s being fooled, this is entertainment, Trump will never be impeached. They let her become president.
Artsy Aries (13 days ago)
2:35 I think the main reason cancel culture exists is due to the demographic of who creates it. Kids. Children and preteens (teens too really) have no concept of time and growth in the long term, therefore they often don’t understand the concept of change. It’s possible that as a person ages this idea becomes clearer, and they engage less with canceling individuals because they understand that with age comes maturity. I don’t know, just a thought.
G- Man (13 days ago)
I know this is a month late but I think facebook’s move to call out google, YouTube, etc. is very reminiscent of what Trump did during his first election campaign. Whenever he got asked about Russian ties he would always deflect the question and ask “Well what about Hilary”. Based on this comparison alone I would say that Zuck is leaning towards the side of trump, but there are also many other factors that you have to consider. I feel like this move on twitter’s part is interesting, I would like to see how this pans out during the 2020 election.

The story with the home is honestly ridiculous. NOBODY IS SAYING THAT THE POLICE SHOULDN'T HAVE DONE IT, WE'RE JUST SAYING YOU UGLY GOV PEOPLE SHOULD COMPENSATE THE OWNERS OF THE HOME.
Abinadab Orozco (29 days ago)
Obama is a lair
Rafael Sanchez (29 days ago)
“Value life over property” no one is suggesting that the actions taken to bring down the suspect were not taken, the home owner is not saying that that shouldn’t have been done. What he’s saying is now that it IS done, he shouldn’t have to be the sole carrier of the financial burden. If the government payed for the damages, it would in effect be the tax payers that are actually paying for it. Which would distributed the cost of the damages among the whole of the population, not ONE guy. Plus, if there is NO responsibility on the police department’s behalf when handling a tough situation like this, then there is no incentive for them to solve the problem the BEST way and only in solving it in ANY way even if a better way exists.

There were no hostages. They weren't blowing up his house to save lives there blowing up his house because they didn't want to wait for the guy to come out on his own. I feel the police department acted irrationally made bad decisions that cost a family there home.

That house looks worse than after a match of Rainbow Six Siege. You know, the game where players get C4, Grenades, Sledgehammers and Machineguns. To me that seemed like unnecassary demolition. We have situations like these in Europe where our police doesn't end up trashing half the place. But then again, our houses aren't made of Nails and Plywood.

Nobody should be above the law...you destroyed their lives and said sucks to suck....that’s disgusting and not okay...
Brett E (1 month ago)
My stance on the destruction of the home should be fully taken care of by the PD and local government seeing as they caused the damage. Like, GREAT, you got the criminal but just shrugging their shoulders about fixing the damage produced is bullshit. That family did not choose to have a criminal come into their home and they did not choose to have holes blown into their walls. Pure bullshit coming from those courts.
Luenic Luke (1 month ago)
He should definitely be compensated. This is not an action movie. There’s consequences to your actions no matter who you are. Whilst it’s impatient to priorities the savings of life over the protection of a property, the state should also have resources available to restore property back to their normal form if damaged by the police or any government agent. Citizens should definitely be compensated! This guy is not even being greedy and is only asking for the market value price for his house. PAY THAT MAN!

I like the twitter move, I think that this could (hopefully) limit the way that politicians pay their way through in America, by buy the most adds and the most screen time, so that people will mostly listen to their ideas, primarily based on who is the richest.

Imo, it's not up to these major companies like google Facebook and Twitter to fact check what these politicians are saying. It's up to us. The people. We need to watch debates, watch and go to town halls. Listen to what these canidates are saying to us and vote on it. Paid ads or not, it's up to us to be informed about what is going on in our country. Part of the reason shows and channels like this are so valuable.

I love Obama and he's right. Also, you can't just DESTROY a family's house and then walk away like it's nothing. If you needed to DESTROY the house to get ONE MAN out, then you're either incompetent or you didn't do your job properly. Owners of the house should receive proper compensation for the troubles their suffered even though they had absolutely no fault at all.

Let me tell you about the CO govt not only destroying property but causing a situation that lead to death & not paying out a dime. My uncle lived on a mountain home in Littleton. During a drought they set a 'controlled burn'. I as a fire fighter knownthe conditions in which this was done was an extremely stupid ass idea. Well, surprise, surprise the fire got away from them. They had some one come to the door and tell them they had less then 20mins to leave. They lost EVERYTHING!!!! 2 of their neighbors died not being able to get out in time. Do you know what they gave them?? $0, zip, zilch, nada, nothing. They were forced to move into a small apartment. There was some issue with insurance since it was a govt set fire. They didn't get even a 1/3 of what they would have needed to rebuild. They wound up leaving their home of 30yrs to move to NC. Is everybody in the govt high out there or something??

Good people have flaws, and bad people love their children, the world is a grey place and if all you do is cast stones, you're not helping to make anything better. I am so glad to hear someone being wise again for a change, rather than woke. Obama has sense. "The police should put life before property" they said, after making a family homeless. After doing something to someone, that had anyone else done, would BE A CRIME. The concept that police can do anything they want and harm the lives of anyone around them, so long as someone else is doing it too, and the police didn't start it... That's insane. I too have always been under the impression that police do not actually have the authority to destroy a house or car and get away with it. This public statement that we've all been wrong is going to do nothing but damage the bad repuration of modern police even further. I don't want people to start to fear calling an officer for help, because that officer might toss a grenade into the house to solve things easily, rather than solve things correctly.

Regarding Obama's speech. I think he was on point that social media has caused heightened rhetoric between people especially in politics. However, to say that its mostly young people is a little in accurate from my experiences in real life and social media. But still great speech regardless.

If I understand correctly, the constitution applies to any instance between citizens and government agencies. Police is a government agency, therefore shouldn't their use of the house for doing their job be covered by the fifth amendment?

NotSandraBullock (1 month ago)
Obviously cancel culture has an impact if the FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES is talking about it. People have the right to support or not support something/someone for whatever reason. If enough people aren’t supporting something, then companies will pivot to something else that makes them money. This has been going on long before it was given a trendy name.
thisisacrummyname (1 month ago)
Phil, I do think that the police department should have to pay to fix any damage that was caused to the house and compensate the family for a rental while they are waiting for the house to be repaired. Though I believe that the $345,000 that the insurance company gave them is more than enough to repair the home. In fact $345,000 is more than enough to build a new home. His $600k home value is based off of his property and his home together and that is the market value not the actual cost of replacement. Allot of the damage shown in the photos of the home are after a construction company has come in and cleared debris from the house. The house it self just needs some of the framing replaced along with new windows, doors, and some electrical and plumbing work. At most $150k-$180k in repairs and that’s if you have some crazy expensive company doing it. To do the siding of a new house or just redo siding on an existing house Hardi Plank which is the best siding runs anywhere from $0.50 to $5.00 a square foot depending on what options you want. So to redo the house at most would be in the $15k to $20k and that is if the house is huge. After you take all the old siding off then you can see how much damage is done to any of the studs (2”x4”x8’) & exterior (2”x6”x8’). Those run about $2.75 each and for the bigger ones $6.00 each. Reframe the windows and buy new windows at $225.00 to $800.00 each depending on the sizes they house didn’t look like it had any crazy big windows. All in all to really fix the house he is only looking at $80,000.00 in repairs. He is looking for a payday, and it appears the insurance company already gave him the money to fix it. Now as far as personal property is concerned that should be replaced to if it was damaged.

Destroyed home to apprehend suspect. Let's play this out for a moment -- if the city and police were compelled by court order to reimburse this man three or four hundred thousand dollars for his home, what precedent does that set? The next time an armed suspects breaks into a home does the mayor call the police chief and say "Chief, the city is pretty broke, you're gonna have to catch that suspect without doing any damage to the house because we can't afford it." As much as I think that what happened to him sucks, I think there's a bigger picture to look at. First of all I think the insurance should have covered it, and maybe the city should have made up the difference, but at the same time, this can't be the first time this has happened and there must be legal precedent somewhere.

Do people actually try to get facts and learn something from these YouTube dipshits? Lord, has America devolved or what? I came to dipshit DeFranco's video because he had one talking about he is a big government boot licker. I sure hope the scumbag is not like other big government lovers and instead at least pays some taxes for his big government. Are the "woke" people supporting the cancel culture? I haven't kept up with what is PC with the people who have nothing better to do than watch YouTube ranters. Big government loves your cancel culture and fully supports it with their pre-approved hit list - the $EX Offender Registries. Now there's some hate we can all get behind!

No in terms of cancel culture while I generally think it’s bad we still have hold people accountable for their bullshit. If someone does say something offensive learn from your mistakes and move on. Instead of just “canceling” them. Tell them respectfully what they did or said that offended you and hopefully they can learn from that.

destruction of private property, use of excessive force, this wasnt a militant suspect, there was no need to demolish lech's home, they could have evacuated the neighbors and long wait him out cut water, gas and electricity to house, without water 3 days without food 7 sleep deprivation and they could stink gas him out at no point was this a hostage or a siege necessity, PURE EXCESSIVE FORCE, this siege tactics are last option necessity when lifes are in extreme danger this is not the case of this cop evasion, im not against the cops doing there job nor in the side of the criminal, im on the side on the property and household owner, this cannot become normal acceptable cop protocol, there is zero need for militant siege tactics of an ordinary barricaded suspect. even strategic sleep gas could have prevented the damage to the property, in rotc and armed guard we where trained to always use the minimal force necessity, fatal force or collateral damage was always deemed beyond acceptable standard practice. we have a right to property a protection against quartering of troops, and right to fair equity for our property, they deemed the home collateral damage and excessively demolished it without any regard to the owners right nor any intent to repay for damages, there was a complete violation of lech's rights of property, they destroyed personal property, and AGAIN THEY HAVE DAMEGE THE TRUST BETWEEN THE PEOPLE AND THE POLICE, THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO PROTECT AND SERVE. if I where a lawyer the suspect could even sue for excessive force, its a clear factual win. cops and all security must exhaust all minimal options before EXCESSIVE MILITARY TACTICS ARE REQUIRED, there is zero reason to rush a barricaded solitary barricaded suspect, there was obvious excessive force and mismanagement of the arrest and apprehension. THE CONDEMNED HOUSE IS PROOF.
