Live leak video, 27 minute video. Watch at the beginning red, look at the grease spot and vehicle in front before preceding. I'm with police reform/cj reform because this country NEEDS it but I'm not out for witch hunts just because. The officer was dragged believe it or not. Look where he ended before he started to run (grease spot/vehicle). I concur he was an asshat but not a murderer. But take a look again Red.
If you doubt ask this: what makes a car move (a dead person or live?) and look at the surroundings. The gentleman cranked his car and put it into gear (car does not put itself in gear . The arm of the cop was locked onto the door with brief struggle before last resort to firing an arm due to instinct in a very brief time. Grant it no life should have been taken or lost and very unfortunate. The cop was dragged before firing, he lands near grease spot and vehicle that is up street. This is why the union is defending him because the video is clear.
The cop should get manslaughter at most. He should be acquitted of murder. I am not sticking up for the cop but the video answers everything. One word grease spot. The officer was dragged by a moving vehicle before shooting one time at the gentleman. Look at the video, you clearly see the grease spot up the street and when the officer finally started to run he started at the grease spot. Dick head yes, murderer no.
Yeah the velocity of money is still @ an all time low, the labor participation rate is still reallg low, inventories are going up (deflation effect), gross output is slowing as well as GDP, corporate debt to worth is increasing, stock market margin debt is increasing (stock bubble), and the screaming we are recovered with a stronger economy has not yet increased the Fed Interest rate (bond bubble). We are no more efficient than 10 years ago! The only good thing is individual household debt is down. All other signs say this economy is built out of sticks not bricks. So my question is hyperdeflation a possibility that is being overlooked (which leads to hyperinflation)? False profits, malinvestment, and debt fueled growth is unsustainable in the long run.
I find it fascinating that we are in a new permanent lower rate of growth from our historical average and that we to big forces pulling against each other major inflation with major deflation which means no real affect just yet happening. I have never seen anything like this. It's like the economy is in a zombie like trance or purgatory.
