    I remember that one incident outside the Empire State Building a few yrs ago...that was outside and like 9 bystanders were hit One does pray that's an aberration but I dont know. Cops do miss alot. IMO the Empire State incident was a training problem, not a shooting problem. But HPs help protect anyone with some sort of barrier between the cops and them.
    A fair and excellent question. Its a shame the government doesn't keep these kinds of statistics so we could objectively decide which is the better bullet.

    I've read this before. Not sure I buy that it's still relevant today, at least to the extent it was in the past. Esp. against non-regimented and formal military fighters like in the ME. (with less medic support)

    I am sure according to your true beliefs, that it must be true. as neither a republican or a democrat, I can tell you it seems about the same to me, surely not "9 times" in either direction.


    I'm sure that you probably wouldn't give that any consideration and would dismiss anything that doesn't fit your right-wing world view.
    you "the right wingerz r teh lairz"

    me "seems from my libertarian viewpoint the repulicans and democrats lie about the same, and often"


    but hey, 9 times man republicans must lie 9 times as much. Are you for real? /facepalm


    Sorry...but politifact calls it and disses on left-wing as well as right-wing. You can dismiss them all you want it doesn't change the facts.
    I gave you the evidence, if you want to suggest that because they have "fact" in thier name that makes it so, there is nothing I can do to change your naivety on the matter.


    Your sig is funny.

    Very true. At that time I worked for a large company and was told that we white guys would be slowed down in terms of career advancement in favor of minorities and blacks. I resigned and went into business for myself. Best move I ever made.

    Frankly I think it's comical.
    It is a 'what goes around, comes around' type of deal. The left was blaming Bush because he was not directly over-seeing the night-crew at Abu Ghraib. And the s*%t they are serving at school lunches is can be directly blamed on the Mooch.

    That's dumb... We gun owners for the vast majority of us, are for strong police reform and cringe at things like this video.

    It is wrong on so many levels.

But if he fights it, and it goes to trail, that will piss people off, on both sides. Then he gets convicted and gets a 15-25 year sentence his life is going to be even more of a hell.
    Then I hope he fights it and loses.

    So just *my* impression from the video is a complete disregard for a life and a lazy POS cop that couldnt be bothered to do his job properly.
    What angers me most is that he tried (as least that was how it looks to me) to pervert the course of justice by moving the taser to make his story of having to defend himself with lethal force legally acceptable. Luckily he was being filmed so his dishonest behavior was documented for all of us to see.
