  1. Why have we shifted the burden of the results onto the shoulders of Law Enforcement? That's like saying that every student who fails to score a satisfactory score on his/her SATs is a result of poorly trained teachers and every patient who succumbs to preventable heart disease is the result of the doctor's poor training. Why didn't the Dr. attend training to cause the patient to comply with his/her orders to eat properly and exercise? We are a land that was built upon rights and laws. Laws are societies rules and when rules are not followed unfortunate things are going to happen, that is why the rule exists (no speeding, wearing seatbelts). The responsibility of those results should not fall upon the shoulders of the law abiding, but should fall squarely upon the shoulders of those who set the series of events in motion. Training can always be better in every occupation and we should strive to be the best we can and practice best practices, but we will never be good enough if we don't place the responsibility upon the right party. God Bless America.
  2. We should all fly the American flag in support of the police. Ask your friends and family to participate. A show of solidarity.

  4. I saw this, it appears as if this is not an unusual tactic in Minneapolis. If it is true. https://www.google.com/amp/s/nypost.com/2020/06/01/minneapolis-cops-left-44-people-unconscious-with-neck-restraints/amp/
  5. This is where justice in America has failed the people. There is no punishment for non violent crimes today. Also keep in mind that arrest and incarceration for someone living in poverty and living in a culture where having a criminal record is treated as a right of passage is of no consequence. For you or me an arrest and incarceration may result in the loss of our job, foreclosure, loss of our homes, loss of our right to keep and bear arms, loss of time with our family and other thing which we hold dear to us, but if you don't have such things what punishment have you endured? Some of these kids live in conditions which are deplorable and time in jail is a welcome break. So in the end who is really constrained by these laws? The law abiding?

  7. I don't believe it is a report. I believe that is the affidavit for the complaint charging Chauvin.
  8. I find it interesting that members here who condemn Derek Chauvin's actions and the actions of his backup advocate taking lives for stealing and damaging property. I feel the lack of action by the officers is a direct result of the hypocritical society we ask them to serve. We have to support the police until the investigation reveals their action were wrong, then support the judicial process to bring them to justice. Instead, as a society we draw conclusions based on media reports and popular opinion rather than facts. This is what fans the flames. We need to support law and order and when we ask our men and women in blue to do their job they need to know we are behind them until the facts show they are wrong. Innocent until proven guilty. God Bless America...we need it.
  9. It's only a stupid question if you can't answer it. I am not looking for an argument. I am asking you for your technique in preventing the suspect from transmitting a potentially fatal disease by spitting or biting you. Cuffs only protect you from his his hands, in most cases. he can kick, knee, head butt, spit, bite, ect. George Floyd was reported to be 6'7" probably very strong. Again, not saying the officers' didn't exercise poor judgement.
  10. How would you stop a suspect from spitting at you or attempting to bite you while trying to place him in the car?
  11. I guess my source was right, Asphyxiation not the cause of death. How would you guys control a suspect who was spitting or attempting to bite you and was resisting getting into the car? Just a question. Again I am not condoning the officers' action, but I am not condemning it either. I reserve my decision until all the facts are brought to light and the investigation is complete. Haven't we learned anything from Ferguson, Mo and Michael Brown or Baltimore, MD and Freddie Gray.
  12. Unconfirmed, but hearing autopsy indicates cause of death was not asphyxiation. If it is true, now what?
  13. What if he was spitting or attempting to bite the officers? Not that I am condoning what the officers did just asking how you would control him if he was saying he had Covid and began spitting or trying to bite the officers. Hard for me to believe there are 4 police officers anywhere who have such little regard for a human life to standby and allow another officer snuff the life from that man. Poor judgement maybe, poor tactics, a mistake. Lets prosecute them if the facts call for it, but don't persecute them for the sake of politics.
  14. Mortgage Lifter. no better.
