If you believe you have to continue to display your ignorance on this subject: My reply will be, even if you don't see it: We agree to disagree. OK?

That's plain insulting. When will you Yanks get off your high horse & realise that the planet does not revolve around yourselves?

From what I can see, we're gonna be stuck with you for years to come - & that's unfortunate for the world!

You still have not answered the question even with low powered rounds...

...over 30 shots? What were they aiming at? a gorilla?

Unfortunately, the average cop has a very hard time hitting the broadside of a barn when someone is shooting at him. Not a dig at cops, every shooter has issues when the shots coming at him are real and not a simulation.

As to this empty gun syndrome, they may have been trained to keep shooting as long as they heard the bad guy shooting at them. They heard each other, so the first pause was when they both had emptied their clips.

BTW if the time stamp on the audio is correct is was PDQ after they arrived to when the call of officer involved shooting went out.

The only way to stop this ridiculous violence in the middle east is to make a huge GLASS parking lot of the whole area and be done with it.

Really. Genocide. Does that make a fair comparison to a hated 20th century historical regime?


Where did you get genocide from?

You never said anything about removing them before you turned it into a glass parking lot.

My friend the Fed carried a mixed load of armor piercing and maximum expansion rounds. Then again being a Fed he could carry ammo that isn't permitted by many police forces. IIRC he said they taught them to take two shots at the center of body mass and then take a head shot. Theory was if the perp was wearing body armor you needed the head shot. I suspect this is different training than local police as Feds are more likely to encounter a perp in body armor than a local.

Bus driver smokes drugs at the wheel of a moving bus. :-O

http://www.news.com.au/national/nsw-act/bus-driver-shaun-murphy-smoked-drugs-at-the-wheel-court-hears/story-fnii5s3x-1227039261002

A DRIVER whose passenger bus slammed into a family home was captured on CCTV smoking synthetic cannabis while behind the wheel, a court heard yesterday.

Shaun Murphy “administered” synthetic cannabis 13 times from a green pipe before he crashed his bus into a Glenmore Park home on June 15, Penrith Local Court was told.

The 56-year-old Busways driver was allegedly filmed by the vehicle’s internal CCTV system steering the bus with his elbows and “at times he had no control of the steering wheel at all’’, a police statement of facts said.

How stupid can a person be when knowing of all the cameras installed on the buses over here these days?

Cheers.

You may not have heard the phrase "felony stupid" before, but this is what is applies too.

So why do you keep attacking this notion, if its a notion that no one has ever stated as something we should seriously look at?

Because it allows him to engage in us-vs-them and attempt to claim the moral high ground at the bottom of the pit toilet and call for mass extermination.

When was the last time you commented, in these posts, regarding the Internal Culture's of France, Germany, UK, Australia, etc. Do you really care?

I know I was posting in the Crimea thread within the last week.

Lets assume you are right and that all men can't help but rape.

All? Your word, not mine.

Then rather than putting the onus on woman to police them selves lets start treating men as the animals you seem to think they are. Men should not be allowed out without a chaperone.

Glad you are calling for that. It will work just as well as Islam where women can't be out alone.

If you want to realize the biology, then study why penis and vagina developed as opposed to the many other methods different animals - yes we are an animal - use. Tell me is rape even possible with some of the other methods? Take that as a big clue to the answer to your question. None of this makes it right, it only addresses why it exists and why it is impossible to 100% prevent.

Why is it easier to invent anti-rape nail polish than find a way to stop rapists?

Ask your God why he invented testosterone and had some brains swim in it.

yes yes, and cats often eat their kittens.

What's your point?

Did you read the report. Having a penis causes rape. At least in birds.

I know you have no personal experience in having a brain swimming in testosterone, but I'm sure you are aware of how some chemicals, e.g. LSD, can affect thinking. Are you assuming testosterone has no effect?

You asked a silly question and got a real answer. I know it wasn't what you wanted to hear. You simply must realize that impulse control is never 100%. (Why do they put candy at the checkout?) Doesn't make it right, but it answers your question.

Almost nobody inside The USA, cares about all the internal problems of other Country's. That's your problem.

Clyde, maybe you don't, but we have something called "The State Department" that interferes in nearly every country's internal affairs. Does the phrase "ignore the government at your own peril" have any meaning to you?

I only stated what is America doing letting minors handle machine pistols/guns.

This is more deserving of a Darwin award than anything else.

The 'pause' confirms one of the few details initially released. That the Officer fired, Brown kept charging, and the Officer fired again.

Where did you get the "charging" from ? All the reports I have seen say that Brown was running away from the officer.

T.A.

So he was running away backwards? He was shot in the front.

Our problem, in this Brave New World, is that in 5, 10, 20 years: It is very possible that a Psychotic, Mass Murdering, Suicidal group, may be able to obtain, and use Weapons of Mass Destruction (Biological, Radiological, etc.) inside Large Western Populations.

Label, label, label.

Why don't you stop labeling and make them your best friend.

Best friends don't do those things to each other.

But still her mind was clear enough to be able to sue her shrink

I think you over estimate the numbers rushing to push the red X Clyde. I do find it amusing that you make these speeches about how offensive you find some posts, yet are completely oblivious to how offensive your posts have been on many occasions. (this being one of them)

Luckily the more tolerant left wing posters such as myself don't need to be told not to go around red Xing posts we don't agree with, because left wing people believe in things like your right to express your opinion no matter how unpleasant it is.

Yes. But lets try and get back on the topic please.
