#2913090 NFL :domestic violence first offense..6 games ...lifetime ban 2nd offense

Posted by Davidson Deac II on Today, 05:07 PM

I do wonder how much gray area there is in this?  If my wife or girlfriend is beating on me, and I grab her and push her away,  in some states that is domestic violence.  Does that guy get the same punishment as a Ray Rice type of situation? 

 

I would just like to see them use some common sense and make the penalty appropriate for the crime, I am not really sure that there is a need for a blanket policy such as this appears to be.




#2912390 For Those Concerned about Cotchery and Avant:

I could also make the argument that a QB can't target a receiver if the receiver is not open.  That being said, I do agree that it is to early to be concerned about the receivers.  In fact, I think that we could end up with a better group this year than we had last year, although it might take a few games for this to show.

Even if it is true that felons will still be able to get guns, its irrelevant.  A person who is convicted of a violent felony should not be able to legally obtain a gun and if they are caught with one, they should go back to prison. 




#2909948 49ers' offense looking like a train wreck so far

It would be nice if it carried over to the regular season, but preseason is largely irrelevant in determining how a team will perform. 




#2908875 Video of St. Louis Shooting of Kajieme Powell Disproves Cops' Version of...

Posted by Davidson Deac II on 25 August 2014 - 01:04 PM

I'm concerned with how the police dealt with the situation. 

 

The video clearly shows the suspect was not acting in a threatening manner to anyone at the scene prior to the LEOs arriving.

 

The justification for shooting the suspect was his proximity to the officers while brandishing a weapon.  

 

It was the officers who chose to place themselves in close proximity to the suspect, not the other way around.

 

If the LEOs perceived the suspect was a threat to their safety, wouldn't it have be wiser to approach the individual with a greater degree of caution? 

 

Seems a more cautious approach might have permitted the LEOs an opportunity to better assess and calmly diffuse the situation. 

 

They were further away when they arrived.  He did move towards them. Its hard to tell how close he was though.

They could have just gotten back in the car for a few minutes until he got further away (especially given the tense situation already in the city).  But then, he might be more of threat to others, since the arrival of the cops seem to agitate him further.  But I don't know what the standard procedure is.     But in this case, I do agree with you (see it happens :)), they could have handled it better. 




#2908736 Video of St. Louis Shooting of Kajieme Powell Disproves Cops' Version of...

I watched the part of the video that shows him being shot.  I haven't actually read the specific police version of what happened, but from what I have read here, the police claimed he was coming towards them with a knife.  The video does seem to show him coming towards them, can't tell if he has a knife or not.  So how does it disprove the police version of events? 




#2908627 Universal "Guns Aren't the Issue" Playbook

Posted by Davidson Deac II on 25 August 2014 - 10:48 AM

Fwiw, you do have a legitimate point.  And personally, I would like to see gun ownership laws tightened.  However, if prohibition didn't stop Alcohol consumption, and the war on drugs doesn't stop heroin imports, and requiring a prescription doesn't prevent people from obtaining power pain relievers and other types of prescription med, then why will banning guns or tightening gun laws work?

If they come for the conspiracy theorist, will it prove that they were right?  :)

The US put the fun in dysfunctional.

Sent from my SPH-L710 using CarolinaHuddle mobile app

 

Not really any more dysfunctional than Europe if looking at Europe as a whole.  In truth, all of Europe would probably be more of a valid comparison to the US than cherry picking a few small isolated nations. 




#2901178 Shooting in Missouri sparks protests, looting

Posted by Davidson Deac II on 21 August 2014 - 01:13 PM

I wouldn't either but I don't think they should have shot him like they did at the point they did it. Certainly they could have went for a leg or arm.

I haven't seen the video, so I can't comment on the specifics of it, but in general, if you are going to shoot at someone, you never go for the leg or arm, that is mostly a Hollywood invention.  Shooting accurately in a stressful situation is difficult and trying to hit an appendage is much more so.

The cops need Phasers, but not the kind that can disintegrate people.

I certainly hope they are not considering charging him just to keep the peace.

Another question is if there was damage to his eye socket, could he see well enough to judge whether or not the young man was really a threat to him? 




#2899183 Cheap flights to Florida

Posted by Davidson Deac II on 19 August 2014 - 09:49 PM

Cheap flights but they charge for virtually everything.  Checked bags, carry on bags, booking online, using a credit card, etc... Even asking a question cost since they don't have a toll free line.  They might just charge for air to breathe while on the plane.
