Polegate level crossing hits woman, 89, on head
An 89-year-old woman was left lying on a railway track after a level crossing barrier struck her on the head.
Violet Tarrant said she feared for her life after the incident on Friday in Polegate, East Sussex.
"I thought I was just going to die lying on that line. It terrified me," she said.

It follows another incident at the same crossing in August last year when an elderly pedestrian pushing a shopping trolley became trapped on the railway line as the barriers came down.

Councillor David Watts, of Polegate Town Council, said: "From a health and safety point of view we can't have people going across the crossing with possibly a doubt in their mind whether or not they're going to be struck."
If they didn't try to beat the gates once the lights start flashing and the bells start ringing, they wouldn't get hit.
*rolls eyes*

Elderly walk a heck of a lot slower. They may not have been trying to beat the gates.

Perhaps Major Kong would be kind enough to again explain the requirements that need to be met for Impeachment and what the founders meant by 'high crimes and misdemeanors' for Jan's benefit and edification along with any other readers unfamiliar with those points.

Requirement for Impeachment, resolution calling for same to pass House, simple majority.
Requirement for removal from office, Impeachment plus conviction in the Senate by a two-thirds majority.

Doesn't matter what the founders meant by 'high crimes and misdemeanors'. It matters what the current Congress believes it to mean. They are free to assign any meaning they wish to it. There is no judicial review, no SCOTUS, no appeal court, just pure raw politics and bribes, er campaign contributions. They are also free to conduct the "trial" however they see fit allowing or barring whatever "evidence" or "testimony" they see fit with whatever rules they see fit to impose, all such rules by simple majority.

Impeachment will never happen............period.
After the mid-terms you might not be saying that.

I will be sure to remind you of this post 'after the mid terms'. And you be sure to remind me when the fantasy impeachment actually occurs.

When you do remember to post the definition of the word "might."

(which is pretty much the only thing that can happen to him, at least on those counts. "Double jeopardy" and all.
Nope, double jeopardy does not apply.
constitution wrote:
Judgment in Cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States: but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law.
So he is fully libel in criminal and civil court and all testimony would be admissible, although the verdict wouldn't not that they could ever find a jury pool that didn't know it.

What they can do is toss him out and strip him of his pension, secret service protection, ex-president staff. Whatever the Senate decides "Trust or Profit" means.

I do see a little thing that needs to be added, that POTUS lose his power of pardon starting at the beginning of the day the House indicts until the day after Senate decides. Also that his power of pardon does not extend to impeachment. I think the framers would be happy with that as I don't think they realized how bad the bottom dwelling scum eaters we have as politicians could become.

Consider the A380 Airbus body specs of 73m long x 7m wide, a ratio of 10:1, sounds more like a probe or just an odd shape of asteroid.

Yes, Chris it is a probe and you know where it goes.

Gary, this doesn't hold true with your claim that North Korea has become an advanced modern society that the population is happy to be a part of.

It does. You are assuming that to be advanced they must want your western standards. That is not what being advanced is. Being advanced is being able to build what you want when you want. They want nukes and they are building nukes. You assume they want better farming more than they want nukes. No evidence for that assumption on your part. If you want to explore that a bit, I suggest you look up rationing under WWII in the USA. You might start here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Office_of_Price_Administration

Nor does anything about the soldier defecting say anything about the vast majority of the population. Manning and Snowden being examples the other direction if you wish to claim otherwise.

Nor does it look like a situation that South Koreans would be happy to become a part of.

You again are projecting that Kim would stand and find another enemy to go crazy over and direct all advanced output to opposing. South wouldn't sign up for that. You forget they outnumber the north and any combined government would face that fact. Kim would not be able to continue if they combined. China knows it and doesn't want it to happen as the likely result is a western leaning country putting USA troops right on their border. Don't live in the status quo.

As long as there are mouths that demand food, the oil is coming out of the ground. If you don't want the oil coming out of the ground then you have to reduce world population.

The University of Chicago’s Exoneration Project is examining another 12 to 24 cases, but the problem is much larger because Watts was involved in about 1,000 cases and perhaps 500 convictions over eight years, said Joshua Tepfer, a defense attorney with the project.
Nice police officers :-)

Performance based pay, same as Wells Fargo.

https://apnews.com/cb04b3eb29e344f58f44e73d3c27e37c/15-convictions-linked-to-corrupt-Chicago-cop-are-thrown-out
CHICAGO (AP) — One by one, the men told the same story: A Chicago police officer would demand money from them. And if they didn’t pay, they would find themselves in handcuffs with drugs stuffed in their pockets.

A Cook County judge on Thursday threw out the felony drug convictions of 15 black men who all say they were locked up for no other reason except that they refused to pay Ronald Watts.

It was the largest mass exoneration in memory in Chicago. And even in a city where it has become almost routine for police misconduct to lead to overturned convictions, the courthouse had never seen anything like the order issued in front of more than a dozen men whose lives were changed forever by the former sergeant.

And it seems that some of you are so scared about facing that new direction that you just want to keep repeating all that you want to ever know (or do you guys have some vested interest in keeping the old "War Machine" running, even in the face of causing bigger/future problems?). :-(

No cheers here.

Have a theory about that. The right is so terrified of anything new they force the status quo no matter how terrible it is. It is what they know, so they are not terrified of it. Explains lots of things from their denial of AGW to their denial of Darwin. They permit nothing to change, except their shorts.
