I had something similar happen to me about a month ago. Was walking on a sidewalk back from a corner store with my friend, cops drive up and immediately go into asshole mode, GET OVER HERE! PUT YOUR HANDS ON THE HOOD! WHO ARE YOU! WHAT ARE YOU DOING! I asked them what's going on and they said "we got a report of two guys walking" lol that's literally word for word what they said "we got a report of two guys walking".

I told them my name, as I'm legally required to do in the state of Nevada. Didn't answer any of their other questions, where I was coming from, what I was doing, ect. as is my right by the 5th amendment. That's when they threatened to arrest me for trespassing. The property where they stopped us was where I was living at the time, I wasn't trespassing and they had no evidence that I was either. Nobody associated with the property ever claimed we were trespassing and they didn't even check with the owner/operator of the property to see if our names were listed as living there.

They stopped us for no reason, detained us with no probable cause of anything. Threatened to arrest us without any evidence we committed a crime. I had to show them my ID and proof that I was living there, which I'm not under any legal obligation to do, to avoid being falsely arrested.

That's probably only the 3rd worst interaction I've had with the police in the last 12 months. Fun times.


Not saying anything that happened as you described it is right or wrong because obviously I don't know what went on. I just want to let you know for your knowledge in the future that probable cause is not required to detain someone. Probable cause is required for an arrest but reasonable suspicion is the level needed to detain someone

In regards to this thread I would also like to say this. I am reserving judgement on the whole situation until for info comes out. No one knows for sure exactly what happened and the circumstances surrounding it. So, I refuse to take anyone's side on this right now.

 

I would like to point this out though. IF...IF...IF you are a police officer and someone just fought with you, grabbed for your gun, etc...and because of that you drew your gun. Then distance was created, but the other person started running at you again and you shoot, it isn't unreasonable to shoot 6 shots to defend yourself. You don't have time to just shoot one shot and then pause to see if it worked or not and continue like that. 35 feet is very close when someone is running. that distance can be covered in a few seconds. If you shoot once and it doesn't stop them, but you paused to wait to see if it worked, it could be too late to do anything more.

Sounds like that guy was not all there mentally, but if all he had was a knife, why not just tase him?

 

I really don't feel like getting pulled into this thread, because most people in here on both sides aren't going to budge from their opinion. However, I do want to point out that "just a knife" is deadly and Tasers don't always work. First of all, you might have only one shot with it, and if you miss then you better have the ability to defend yourself from the knife with your hand skills because you will be out of time to switch to anything else if they rush towards you. Second, even if you hit them with a Taser it isn't always effective. The effectiveness first depends on where the two prongs hit. If you have a good spread, then it will most likely be effective. If there is a small spread, then people can fight through the localized pain. Third, even with a good spread, someone on some hard drugs like PCP will be able to fight through it regardless. 

 

What I'm trying to say is if someone pulls a knife and is holding it in an aggressive manner near me and acting strange. I'm not going to choose the Taser as my choice of defending myself, because there's a good chance that could fail, and if I fail it could cost me my life. 




#2430210 Footage of racist Philly cops goes viral

Posted by Ccat on 15 October 2013 - 06:09 PM

Lots of good cops out there no doubt, even in Philly.

There is "officially sanctioned" behavior by organizations, then there is behavior that is unofficially allowed to persist by turning a blind eye to it.

Philadelphia PD has a long history of turning a blind eye to the racist behavior of their officers. The last thing they want is video evidence of that behavior, forcing them to confront it. Note: The PPD is currently being sued for wrongful arrest of civilians that attempt to record their officer's behavior in public.


Like I said, it's possible that PPD is that way. If so, then that needs to change. Not the way we do it around here though. We are actually encouraged to have video on ourselves, knowing that everything we do that's on our cameras is available to discoverable to the defense and/or a available to the public through FOIA

Whoever says LBs aren't supposed to take up blocks never played LB apparently. When an Iso comes at an LB, he is usually taught to take on the FB with either inside leverage (spilling, so the back is forced to run outside where another defender is supposed to be) or with outside leverage (forcing the RB to go inside where another defender is responsible for making the tackle. Different teams teach it different ways. The team I play for usually spills while the backside LB runs over top. Same goes for power plays and counters when the LB has to take on a pulling OG or OT.

How many times can it pop before the tendens just had enough.


It's not a tendon, it's a ligament, and it's not the same ligament each time. When you have a complete ACL tear, they remove that ACL, then take something from somewhere else in your body (middle third of your patella tendon, part of your hamstring, etc.) or a tendon from someone else (not as reliable) and put it in place of your ACL. Amazingly, your body can take something like a tendon, recognize that it's not supposed to be there, break it down, and turn it into a ligament. Then, what used to be a tendon or muscle can turn into a new ACL.

#1806202 The Problem with Same-Sex Marriage

Posted by Ccat on 19 June 2012 - 11:28 PM

Any so called Christian who acts the way the above cartoon portrays isn't really understanding how Christians are actually supposed to act. We aren't supposed to hate anyone. I know I sure as hell don't hate gay people. I have gay friends. I don't agree with what they do, because I believe it is a sin, and I hate the act, but not the person. We all sin. I tell lies, lust, etc. so I am no better than anyone else. All sin is equal so we are all on even ground. A Christian shouldn't hate anyone for sinning no matter what the sin may be, but it doesn't mean we may not disagree with the act. Christians shouldn't believe they are better than anyone else either. We are forgiven for our sins, but we are still sinners. Don't hate anyone.

You're calling it like you see it, and I can respect that since everyone has a different perspective. However, from MY experience, the people who conform and have given into cultural pressures of today's world are the ones who act the way I have described before, because it's a small minority of people who choose to abstain from sex, binge drinking, doing some form of drugs, dressing a certain way, etc. I used live like that, but have since changed. So tell me I'm conforming to societal pressures all you want, but I feel like it's the exact opposite.

This is pretty much how I feel about the difference between a true Christian and then the problems with self-righteous organized religious groups.

We're not lumping the religious moderates with the religious fundamentalists. They are. They need to get a new religion if they don't want to be in the same with the fundies.

I think you have it wrong. Christianity teaches peace and tolerance, so the ones who believe otherwise are the ones that need to create their own religion

#1067540 Your combine - bench press

Posted by Ccat on 27 February 2011 - 10:26 PM

or you prefer actual exercise like olympic lifting.


That's why you do it all. Bench press is a good lift. Our team does all kinds of stuff, bench, incline, military press, push press, power cleans, snatches, clean & snatches, deadlifts, good mornings, dumbbell exercises for a lot of different muscle groups, pullups and chinups, dips, squats, etc. Any lift by itself isn't going to be enough. Working out every area of the body with the focus on the legs is good.

What if the flood was just a local one, but one that encompassed all they knew of what was "the world"? And if so, wouldn't that meant that "all of the animals" would really only be all of the animals that were local to that area and that they knew about?

So in a way, couldn't the story be true in the sense that whoever wrote it was telling the truth to their knowledge. They just didn't know that there was a much larger world out there and many animals in other areas that they didn't know about?
