Re: Protests - the next level?

Many problems of the black community have nothing to do with "oppression by the white man." 40% of black males drop out of high school (80% in some big cities). 77% of black infants are born to unmarried mothers. 1/3 of black men have felony conviction records. These are the REAL issues of the black...

Re: NYT says gun buyers more likely to shoot themselves than non gun buyers

Statistics show that people who own life jackets are more likely to die from drowning than people who don't.

Re: Man who died from knee to neck was from Texas

There are very specific markers present at an autopsy when a person dies from asphyxiation, such as increase blood CO2, eye vascularity, etc. The county coroner found none of these. Floyd died from coronary failure, aggravated by the stress of being restrained and fentanyl intoxication. The "celebr...

Concerning biological markers for asphyxiation...are they the same markers if someone is not choked, ie cutting off oxygen as opposed to cutting off blood flow to the brain via compression of the carotid arteries?
Cutting off blood flow is strangulation.

Re: Man who died from knee to neck was from Texas

Interesting that to my knowledge, so far we haven't heard a peep from Chauvin or his attorneys.

If his attorneys are skilled enough to use the above information in getting him acquitted, heaven help us; the riots thus far will be a Sunday picnic in comparison.

Re: Dallas June 2 - planned protest update

If somebody is outside your house throwing bricks through your windows, is that a legal justification for using deadly force?

Re: Protests - the next level?

This "celebrity coroner" Dr. Baden, reported in his independent autopsy that Floyd died from "asphyxia due to neck and back compression." But he also states that there is no evidence of the compression, because it disappears once the pressure is released. So if there's no evidence, how does he verif...

Re: Protests - the next level?

I was just contemplating what would happen if, with an impartial jury looking at facts, the officers were acquitted. It would probably be Rodney King X 1,000.

We will see what the final autopsy says but by golly I was wrong to jump to conclusions. I won't make a bi...

Re: Man who died from knee to neck was from Texas

CNN says the preliminary autopsy report shows that the knee did not cause any injury or strangulation. The big question to ask yourself is if you can tell how much pressure he is putting on the man just from the video. Was it actually pressing on the carotid? Or across some other part of the neck. ...
