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

Independent/Private autopsy report says George Floyd died from asphyxiation..... interesting (even though we figured that all along). Was somebody trying to cover for the cops during that first autopsy CNN posted? Independent autopsy also says there is no evidence in the body of the neck compressio...

Re: TX: Homeowner shoots intoxicated man who walked in and made threats

They don’t keep their doors locked? One of the most interesting facts I learned in studying burglary is that most people feel secure in their home and don't lock doors or set alarms when they go to bed. I don't have an alarm because I live in an apartment, but I am bad about locking doors while hom...

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

I am a little surprised by that autopsy result. Is asphyxia hard to determine or were Minneapolis officials trying to soften this issue up a little? I always thought it was easy, but that is because I am used to handling strangulation caused by pressure on the front of the neck. My question is if y...

Re: Protests - the next level?

The rumor I heard was that the road had been closed by the police due to the protests and the trucker somehow got on the highway anyway. I believe the police said he was deliberately trying to hit the protestors, which would be felony assault if true. Or counter-protesting maybe, but still a crime.

Re: Protests - the next level?

I firmly believe that most of the riots are being started by professional agitators. The agitators come from both local and out of town areas to do this. I do not pretend to know or understand why they do this or who the agitators are supporting. The Republicans are generally blaming Antifa and "lef...

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

2. There seems to be too many incompetent officers these days wearing the badge. Hiring process must be scrutinized and training standards clearly have to go up. I am not sure that this has anything to do with this case, but one incompetent officer is too many. We need to improve the standards for ...

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

Thanks for posting this link. I have a question. It says The defendant pulled Mr. Floyd out of the passenger side of the squad car at 8:19:38 p.m. Why would they do that? If Floyd was being arrested and was already in the squad car, why wouldn't he just be taken to jail? I've never understood why, ...

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

In several posts in this thread and another, I said I did not know enough about the incident in question and suggested we wait for a full investigation. I pointed out that the firing of the officers and threatening state and federal charges would not be the right thing to get them to cooperate. The ...

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

I think maybe you have not seen some of the videos of this situation. There is a video of him handcuffed and sitting on the ground just after they removed him from his car. They stood him up and were walking him to the police car when the cop who choked him out exited his car and came running up to...

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

This was posted on line that it was a false flag event staged to solidify black voters against Trump. Apparently a fake Facebook account with fake friends appeared for the neck police officer with Trump 2020 posts afterwards. I haven’t verified any of this. It is mostly garbage with a few minor tru...

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

So in Texas at least, doing something to someones neck is a big no no. While this section probably needs to be expanded, it is only for family violence. Sec. 22.01. ASSAULT. (a) A person commits an offense if the person: (1) intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly causes bodily injury to another, i...

Soldier responds to active shooter

Here is an interesting story on how a soldier in Kansas responded to an active shooter. It is also a lesson on why cops shooting at cars when people are trying to run them over is a bad idea. https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/ft-leavenworth-soldier-rams-active-shooter-with-his-car-saves-countless-li...

Re: After Action Analysis (George Floyd): May 27, 2020

Sorry for being a bit harsh now, but prudently dealing with people who may be violent towards you is what you signed up for when you took your oath. Keyword is “prudently”. We all can react and cross the line. You’re there to ensure that the line isn’t crossed. I’m sure you know what it feels like ...

Re: After Action Analysis (George Floyd): May 27, 2020

He very well may have resisted arrest. But once he was cuffed and lying face down, resistance is over. I do not know about this specific case and I will not comment on whether the officers are right or wrong. I do know that I have been attacked by people who are cuffed and restrained. I remember on...

Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19)( SARS-CoV-2) from China: Its going to be bad.

But I have a theory. What if team red is more capable of making good, adult decisions than team blue? You know, maybe Trump voters understand that it's bad to sneeze on other people, bad to lick doorknobs, etc. Maybe they know how to take care of themselves better. I have noticed a couple factors t...
