#2914130 Shooting in Missouri sparks protests, looting

Posted by TheRed on 28 August 2014 - 10:06 PM

Oh it's LongTriad.

 

Looks like it's time to vilify the dead kid who isn't here to defend himself like people did with Trayvon Martin.

I've yelled philly too. Look up my posts. He's disappointed.

 

Rivera disagrees apparently.

Ginn has always been a straight up legit returner.

 

Depends on your interpretation of "legit".

 

You guys are acting like he ran back multiple touchdowns last year. Even Kealoha Pilares managed to run one back.

Pilares and McNutt are gone, King has done very little, and it's basically just Bersin and Brown now.

 

If you want to gripe about nothing okay, but don't sit around and pretend like we have all these other options. Brown is gonna make the team.

Yea he had a wide open field. If he had caught that ball cleanly, he would've had a nice opportunity there. Might've saw he was out of position and fair caught it.

 

Nice opportunity? It's the end of the fourth preseason game after the two minute warning.

 

Just complaining to complain at this point.

We aren't likely going to find an upgrade over Philly. He's a rookie, he's done fine considering.




#2912749 Trade Idea: Bills WR TJ Graham?

If we're looking for a guy, let's drop the "Ginn replacement" line, that didn't work so well with Underwood.




#2912728 Correct Police Tactics For Dangerous Suspect

Posted by TheRed on 28 August 2014 - 12:56 PM

It seems to me police departments need to be held accountable for the tactics employed when dealing with citizens.

Had the police in the Missouri incident used the same approach as in this San Diego example there would have been no justification for shooting/killing the man wielding the knife.

The Missouri PD tactics increased the likelihood of a lethal outcome by initially confronting the suspect within feet of his location. The police needlessly placed themselves and the suspect in a dangerous situation. One that required an immediate lethal response.

On the other hand, note how the San Diego police maintained their distance, which significantly reduced the threat of injury and the need to immediately resort to lethal force. When they ultimately shot the suspect, it was a measured response, not a lethal overreaction.

 

This seems to be the common problem with our police forces across the country. Clearly the training is either insufficient, or some changes need to be made. It also doesn't help that so many of our citizens don't even question it, but seem more than willing to just accept it.

 

There were two posters in another thread arguing that they could "understand" why the trained CMPD officer who shot a disoriented unarmed man ten times would immediately panic with absolutely no alternative but lethal force because an unarmed man was approaching him.

 

It's just sad really.




#2911917 Michael Sam, draft prospect, admits he's gay

Posted by TheRed on 27 August 2014 - 04:43 PM

I don't personally find it comparable to a man showering with a woman.

As 332nd pointed out, most times you would not know if you were actually showering near a homosexual anyway.

#2910387 Bucs looking at Incognito, traded for Mankins

Posted by TheRed on 26 August 2014 - 01:33 PM

Looking at Mankins contract, you can see why he was traded. He's due $7 million a season in 2015, and 2016.

#2908141 Legitimate Ferguson News

Posted by TheRed on 24 August 2014 - 10:22 PM

 

Racial tension was endemic in Jennings, said Rodney Epps, an African American city council member.

 

“You’re dealing with white cops, and they don’t know how to address black people,” Epps said. 

 

 

Im not sure how I should take that statement. I thought I was supposed to address people the same regardless of the color of their skin.

I sincerely hope that was just an awkwardly worded statement.

 

Exactly what are you getting at here?

 

When he says "they don't know to address black people", he means for example by 1) not immediately pulling your gun out on a woman and her child and begin shooting, and 2) not throwing a woman to the ground on her own property and proceeding to kick her in the stomach.

 

But I'm assuming you either didn't read it all, or simply ignored that information.




#2907537 Cam not playing Thurs, has rib injury

Posted by TheRed on 24 August 2014 - 05:35 PM

That's fun to say but Cam's injury was on him. When the play broke down he had the option to throw it away. Instead he tried to make a play. In the preseason.

 

Looks like he can't win with some of our fans regardless. If he doesn't run people complain, if he does they still complain.




#2907357 Interesting JJ tweet....

Well this is certainly a smart way to get a thread to 20 pages.
