#2860344 NYPD kill a man after placing him in a chokehold

Posted by Montsta on 21 July 2014 - 07:56 PM

Lets say that the call was dispatched as a fight, no suspect description. You arrive on scene and see a large man with his hands on someone. We will say he actually was breaking the fight up, but your first thought is he might be the aggressor. So you focus on him until you can straighten out whats going on. He is in an agitated state and the only way you can get him under control until you can get to the bottom of it is to handcuff him, aka detain him.

This could very well be the story, or it might not. You are taking for gospel what the video narrator was saying. I only commented in here because any time a video like this comes up you start seeing people who have never been in a tense situation before.. ( Why didn't you shoot him in the leg? Why didn't you talk to him for 20 minutes? Or the biggest LOL I've seen in here, using deadly force if you think you shouldn't be arrested.) automatically blaming the popo. Sometimes they are in the wrong, possibly in this case, but the automatic hatred gets old.

So because you're a cop, who is supposed to uphold the law of the land, you disagree with a supreme court ruling (the biggest and final law of the land) that citizens can use deadly force if it's reasonable during an unlawful arrest? Sounds about par for the course for most law enforcement agencies, pick and choose the laws you want to follow.

#2860332 Tony Dungy: "I wouldn't have taken him." (Michael Sam)

Posted by Montsta on 21 July 2014 - 07:48 PM

Sterling didn't want black people at his games. Dungy doesn't want gay people on his team. There's not much of a difference.

He can use the "media circus, distractions" excuse all he wants. He's just another religious man who doesn't like gay people. Dungy almost signed Mike Vick & his media circus after he got out of prison. He had no problem with the media circus that would've came with signing a dog torturing POS, but sign a gay man? No, we just can't deal with all the media attention and distractions.

Horse sh*t.

Sterling didn't want his girlfriends to come to Clippers games with black men.

He didn't say on the recording he didn't want black people at his games.

Yes, both he and Dungy are entitled to their opinions, as much as most people may disagree with them.

#2860032 Malaysian airlines lost contact with another Jet

He's not just some guy and it was not twitter. It was leader of Russian rebel posting on on Russian social network on vk.com

Sorry wrong social media site. Same difference.

Would it not be a fitting sign of our times if world war 3 literally started because of something a guy posted on twitter?

#2860020 NYPD kill a man after placing him in a chokehold

Posted by Montsta on 21 July 2014 - 03:03 PM

What specifically gives us that right? I'm not saying you're right or wrong, just wondering where you're coming from on that.


It's been held at the supreme court level several times now it seems.

If a cop is arresting you unlawfully, you have a right to resist. If during that resisting of an unlawful arrest the officer hurts you, you are within your rights to reasonably defend yourself, with deadly force if necessary.

I understand it's easier to just say yes sir officer and put your hands up and your head down, but in a wholly unlawful arrest, you are by no means required to do so.

#2859975 As you have grown up have you become more liberal or more conservative?

Posted by Montsta on 21 July 2014 - 02:18 PM

I grew up in a family of democrats, so there's that.

I don't know what I would be considered today.

I believe weed should be legal, and the war on drugs should be scaled back a bit. Not necessarily decriminalized, but as it is today is ridiculous.

I believe women should have the right to an abortion if they want to.

I don't believe in the death penalty.

I believe in a flat tax rate for everybody.

I believe welfare is out of control in this country.

I believe guns should be able to be purchased only after a background check and a mental health background check, police incident check perhaps as well.

I believe police that commit crimes should be prosecuted as regular citizens. So like the NYPD cop that strangled dude should be charged with murder, need to bail out, then face trial, not get two weeks paid vacation during an investigation.

I believe the government in a two party system is ruined beyond control and needs to be overhauled completely.

I believe in MUCH shorter term limits for everybody in government. Maybe do a longer term limit only if popular vote is something outrageous like 75% or something.

I believe the electoral vote system was created with good intentions but is also busted.

I believe people that aren't citizens of this country shouldn't receive healthcare, food, shelter, identification cards or drivers licenses.

I believe we should build a giant Game of Thrones style wall between here and Mexico. If you are convicted of a crime you can decide to go to the wall for the rest of your life in lieu of jail.

So I don't know what I would be considered.

How fitting that the Bears always seem to be rummaging through our trash.

I hope JR doesn't throw away any important identity or credit information without shredding it, because someone from Chicago is clearly standing in the back of the building in the Panthers facility going dumpster diving.

#2859688 Ashley Fox - Hardy Situation Trumps Others

Posted by Montsta on 21 July 2014 - 08:30 AM

Of course it's messed up. Doesn't change my stance, though. Not everything is fair or right in life. It's still not worth putting yourself at risk. It's better to just walk away. Hardy could've easily replaced anything she broke and filed charges against her after the fact. He can't, however, change the public opinion on him now after the fact. Regardless of whether he is completely innocent or not.

Kind of like the thread on the man who died after being restrained and choked by the NYPD. Did the officers abuse their power and use unnecessary force? Yes. Should they be held accountable for his death? Yes. His family will sue and probably get a big chunk of money. Did the man have a right to be upset and feel he was being done wrong? Absolutely. Was it worth losing his life over? Hell no. Right or wrong, if police officers are going to arrest you it's best to just swallow your pride and comply. Nothing good comes from resisting arrest. Now I'm not saying it was his fault he died, the police should be held accountable for that. All I'm saying is that instead of just letting the officers arrest him peacefully without physical force being used, he made the conscious decision to be defiant and resist them. That decision unfortunately led to police officers using unnecessary force, which ultimately triggered an attack that caused his death.

The man wasn't even in the wrong by being upset and resisting them. Just like Hardy was probably justified in restraining that woman. However, you have to pick your battles in life. Sometimes it's better to just walk away from a situation and not fight, regardless of if you're in the right or not.

So basically you say life isn't equal or fair, but if someone steals from you or unlawfully arrests you or attacks you, you need to just take it in the ass and let the system figure it out later? That is quite the quagmire you've presented.

#2858091 DGantt's 2014 Panthers preview spectacular

Posted by Montsta on 19 July 2014 - 03:18 PM

It's funny how people say we lost all of our receivers as if they were good, but then in the Ravens season preview they mention how Smitty probably doesn't have much left in the tank.

So did we lose a good player or didn't we?

#2853966 Hardy found guilty

Posted by Montsta on 16 July 2014 - 11:27 AM

Bottom line is this.

Greg will be suspended by Goodell at least a couple of games. If the team can levy its own punishment after that, they will, but it will be minor. Greg will play out his franchise contract here. He will sign as a free agent somewhere else next year (probably oakland), and we will get a compensation 3rd rounder.

At least that's how I see it.

#2853960 Hardy found guilty

You are the company you keep. Didn't your momma teach you anything???

I suppose this is true.

So buy hanging out with a crazy person who refers to himself in the 3rd person as a fictional monster who attended school at a non-existent wizard academy, the accuser in this case could and should have pretty much expected that one day he would snap and beat the poo out of her. After all, it's her fault for keeping that kind of company. And because a hazard was inherent in keeping that kind of company, no charges should be able to be filed against said company when the poo hits the fan.

Now we are both intelligent enough to know that sounds pretty absurd.

What a great year to adopt Greg Hardy! This couldn't have worked out any better!

#2853748 Hardy found guilty

Why do folks here keep putting themselves in the same situation as a player as if it is at all comparable. If you fiance is bigger than you then that is not analogous to Hardy who is 6'4" and 290. So anything you say after that is irrelevant.
If you hang out with rough woman then whose fault is that? You deserve what you get then.. I make it a general rule not to hang out with aggressive mentally unstable woman who can kick my butt. So do you apparently, so again I don't see any of your post is relevant to his situation.

So if a guy hangs out with rough women, he deserves what he gets?

If a woman is dressed like a slut and drinking in a hotel room with a bunch of horny men, and wakes up to discover she was raped, does she deserve what she gets?

Simply hanging out with rough or shady characters should never be an automatic indictment on a person for what happens next.
