These sumbitches are going to make me start watching people turn left for a living aren't they?


The only way I can watch NASCAR is if it involves Cole Trickle and Rowdy Burns and Russ Wheeler.


How 'bout Ricky Bobby?


Bo & Luke Duke


How bout Daisy Duke

Every Police Chief in America needs their records investigated

All this talk about not hiring anyone who they deem overly qualified .. many times claimed to be those who have a high ranking IQ quotient.. if true then they are criminally liable for hiring these dolts who lack basic human decency and knowledge of the Laws they are hired to uphold

Too many of these Peace Officers truly see themselves as a totally different human being and different quality of American..

^^^Setoff after watching police cause the riots.
https://twitter.com/hashtag/columbusprotest?src=hashtag_click

Hoping not staged and not hoping its real.. hmm damn..
Hard to watch: Police hit and maced a young disabled amputee. The same mace @MayorGinther
insisted was illegal to use against peaceful protestors. The video is of the aftermath, fellow protestors had to retrieve the lost legs.

Take a dive into the data for yourselves, but this is a damning thesis from a damning article:
Quote:
Police officers kill about 1,700 Americans every year. In other words, police killings have made up about one out of every twelve violent deaths of Americans between 2010 and 2018. That’s including American military deaths in Afghanistan, Iraq, and elsewhere during that window. Indeed, more Americans died at the hands of police officers during that period (about 14,400) than died while on active military duty (about 9,400).

If you or someone you know replies with "all lives matter" whenever the topic of BLM comes up. Think of this analogy.

Imagine if you break your ankle. So you go see a doctor. You get to the exam room. Tell the doctor the problem and they start checking your wrists, and back, and elbows, and neck. And when you tell them, "what are you doing, I broke my ankle?!". The doctor says, "HEY, all bones matter!"

That's what people are doing when they say "all lives matter" whenever BLM comes up. Obviously, all lives matter. But we're trying to address something that is broken at the moment.

The charges also include aggravated assault, false imprisonment and criminal attempt to commit false imprisonment, according to the indictment.


Took them long enough. And if the video had not existed would they have done so? Greg McMichael is a retired cop.

JFC, this guy was not even the one they were looking for.

Police were originally called out on a panhandling complaint. Another guy was determined to have an outstanding warrant and they were getting ready to arrest him. This poor fellow just happened to be in the area.

One cop was talking to him and asking for his ID, the other goon comes up to cuff him, slams him to the ground. Guy's wrist was broken during the incident and he is suing Valdosta Georgia PD for excessive force. Black rookie officer was the one asking for his ID, white Sgt. is the one who slammed him down.

Father and Son should get to pick which one of them dies.

Edit.. (bleep) that.. Son dies so Father has to be without his Son the rest of his FUGLY Life.. Identical to what they did to that Mother

Let the Mother re-enact the whole sequence of events...

Cops can do things--as part of their job--that others cannot: Deprive a person of life and/or liberty in the process of an apprehension.

Another one. Two months ago, a Latino man died in Tuscon police custody after being restrained, face down, for 12 minutes. Apparently there's video of the incident, and the police chief has offered to step down.

Prison sentences are suppose to be deterrents. IMO if policemen who commit certain types of crimes are housed in the general population they actually would be. No way in hell a policeman would want to be in GP.

Again IMO knowing they may be placed in GP would be a deterrent and slow certain types of crimes. Killing a unarmed person is the kind of crime of which I speak.

The way things are now incarcerating a policeman is not much more than house arrest.

If found guilty I think Derek Chauvin committed the kind of crime that makes him eligible to be in GP. I don't think Mohamed Noor should be.

GEORGE FLOYD RELATED.

3 North Carolina police officers fired over racist rants

LINK

Quote:

Piner then told Moore that he felt a civil war was needed to “wipe them off the (expletive) map. That’ll put them back about four or five generations.” Moore told Piner he was “crazy,” and the recording stopped a short time later.


EDIT; Rather than crowd the thread I'll edit this with another police brutality and resigning before being fired case.

Report details TPD officer misconduct in death of Carlos Ingram-Lopez

LINK

Quote:
The report recommends termination for officers Samuel Routledge, Ryan Starbuck and Jonathan Jackson, who had resigned the day before the investigation was completed.



GEORGE FLOYD IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE!!!

There should be three categories of incarceration:
1. Crimes against oneself. Mental health issues should be dealt with by medical professionals trained to find and address root causes rather than punish the results (drug offenses) or the behavior that follows addiction (theft, etc.). The focus is health.
2. Crimes against property. These criminals should be incarcerated under the care of 'tough love' trainers (think military) who focus on retraining these folks in a productive way (education, job training) and paying restitution. The focus is rejoining society as a productive contributor.
3. Crimes against people. These criminals should be locked in cages under constant supervision and should never be allowed near another person whom they could harm. The focus is protecting everyone from this person.

Bravo. I've never seen this spelled out so well, so succinctly. Forward it to the Biden campaign.

Black man wrongfully arrested because of incorrect facial recognition

https://abcnews.go.com/US/black-man-wrongfully-arrested-incorrect-facial-recognition/story?id=71425751
Quote:

A Black man was wrongfully arrested and held in a detention center for nearly 30 hours in Michigan after facial recognition technology incorrectly identified him as a suspect in a shoplifting case, according to the man, his attorney and the American Civil Liberties Union.

Robert Williams received a call at work from the Detroit Police Department on Jan. 9 stating that he had to report to the station for arrest, according to a complaint filed Wednesday against police by Phil Mayor, a senior staff attorney at the ACLU Fund of Michigan.

Williams was not told why and he assumed it was a prank call, the complaints stated.

Yet when he returned home, officers were waiting for him outside and arrested Williams on his front lawn in front of his wife, Melissa, and two young daughters.

Police believed he was the suspect in a shoplifting case at a Shinola watch store in Detroit, according to the complaint.

Today would have been Tamir Rice's 18th birthday. If he had not been gunned down at age 12 by an unstable cop who was never charged in his death.

In related news, the military just awarded a contract for mini drones.

https://interestingengineering.com/us-army-awards-pocket-sized-drones-206-million-contract

The black mirror dystopian future is coming quicker than I imagined. How'd these cyberpunk genre authors predict things to a tee, from AI to drones to facial recognition to a populace armed to the teeth to mega corporations running everything. I was reading about this sort of thing as a kid and in my mind it never seemed plausible in my lifetime.

Ya I saw that a day or 2 ago. I think I posted it here, I may not have though. The victim is fortunate compared to alot of other similar cases since the cops had their body cams on. Otherwise, the victim would be out of luck when it comes to medical bills.

Yikes. Why is this split on party lines? It seems unlikely to pass the Republican majority controlled Senate. This is unfortunate.
