  1. I don’t know what you’re upset about. The flu kills way more people than the police.
  2. I love all the explanations about why he isn’t there with them, including “like you I’m overworked.” He’s written so many emails, I can’t even.
  3. I was expecting a picture of the valet that takes Ferris Bueller’s car, perhaps jumping in slow motion...
  4. @Gawain I’m looking back and see some quotes but haven’t seen the study or article, so bear with me a bit here. I’m not exactly sure why firing their weapon is any threshold to point at here. While this particular incident is the reason for these protests, it’s a societal problem as much as it’s a police violence problem. It’s Breonna Taylor, Arbery, the lady with the dog off leash calling the police saying “there’s a black man threatening me,” the guy picking trash up around his building that gets guns drawn on him because he doesn’t have ID and was pointing his trash grabber at the police officer, the times a gun is drawn and pointed at someone during a traffic stop.
  5. Again, one officer couldn’t be spared to walk up and address them like people? “Hi, we really want everyone inside at this time, could you guys be good citizens and help us out here? It’s a dangerous situation and we want you to be safe.” It’s also kind of a bad look having a line of armed men storming down the street hollering at people who are at home. Who came up with that plan? What would have happened if they remained on their porch? You going to arrest them? Fire tear gas at their house? “Light em up” some more? I don’t support looting and vandalism, and I don’t support this crap either.
  6. While I don’t disagree with the premise entirely, I think this is a big part of the problem. There are 3 armed officers vs 1 woman, and the answer was to sucker punch her in the temple rather than restrain and arrest. She looks out cold, dude that hit her was huge. The officer she hit wasn’t badly hurt or anything, there are lots of ways to handle this other than resorting to punching her.
  7. Is this the one where Mr Burns gets into a fight with Mayor Quimby?
  8. George Floyd and now-former Officer Derek Chauvin both worked security at the El Nuevo Rodeo club on Lake Street, according to Maya Santamaria. Santamaria owned the building for nearly two decades, but sold the venue within the last few months. "Chauvin was our off-duty police for almost the entirety of the 17 years that we were open," Santamaria said. "They were working together at the same time, it's just that Chauvin worked outside and the security guards were inside." Why is having “off duty police” at a strip club a thing?
  9. What’s wrong with being sexy?
  10. Undercover cops in Canada don’t ride horses?
  11. 1. There is evidence to the contrary, autopsy, etc. 2. The widow here is her husband, it’s his feelings I’m talking about. If there is no evidence that there was an affair or a murder, do you care how he might feel about having his wife’s name used to disparage a critic? 3. I guess we’ll see what he has planned with his eo.
  12. 3 questions for supporters- 1. Do you think Joe Scarborough murdered anyone? 2. Do you think it’s right for the president to comment on this in light of her widowed husbands response? 3. Do you think it’s ok to use the power of the presidency to regulate social media platforms so people can spread misinformation (such as a conspiracy theory about Joe Scarborough)?
  13. All of this because he wants to promote a conspiracy that a morning talk show host that is critical of him is a murderer. Now he wants to use the power of the office to punish the company that called him out on his bull####. Does any Trump supporter believe Joe Scarborough killed someone?
  14. Labeling misinformation=silencing conservative voices.
  15. Yes we can’t have what happened to our elections in 2016 happen again.....wait, what?
  16. Love this guy, and what a suit!
  17. So obviously the answer is fire rubber bullets and tear gas at people gathered to protest. Why even have the police show up if they’re getting rocks thrown at them, let the people stand on the corner and light candles or whatever. No need for a police presence- send the fire dept to talk to them and do traffic control or something. Police not looking good in any of this imo, at least from the stuff I’m reading this morning.

  18. We call it CHI-na beef noodle soup now.
  19. They like it when he does this stuff. I suppose I shouldn’t be quick to judge, we’ll see what they have to say.
  20. Wtf guys. Hill>1.01/Parker/jarwin/2 3rds henderson and the future 1st are free
  21. Hacking his account, Yoda is so doing.
  22. I suppose this depends on what you want to count. I suspect that we find some long term issues that end up associated with covid, which likely won’t be counted as covid deaths but perhaps take years or quality off of someones life, but that speculation on my part. Seeing some of the before/after pictures of healthy people who made it through but were intubated for weeks tells me it isn’t something I want to get. We also keep comparing flu deaths to covid- we need to stop doing that until we get a years worth of covid deaths to accurately compare the numbers. If we end up with 150,000 deaths after a year, is that good? If we hit 200k+ deaths, would anyone have a different outlook? What is the threshold When a vaccine is developed, what might that number go down to?
