Not so sure this is that bad, bad cop yes, bad situation?
You know I've looked at this a few times and I see how the CHP wants to cover this up. But let's look at this particular situation. Think about this:
1. Cop has women walking out into obviously very very busy highway. 2. He's chasing her on foot risking his life trying to save hers. 3. He can see what happens if she causes an accident on highway - lots of other folks could get hurt/killed. 4. She ignores his commands causing him to have to physically restrain her. 5. Probably he doesn't relish the idea he has to run out into highway to save her, possibly getting killed himself. 6. He'd probably say good riddance (not good but realistic) and let her get hit, but someone else would probably get hurt and he would burn for that too. 7. She fights back when he's trying to grab her, he way over reacts(but in the moment I can see how he could, just needs to be a better cop)... 8. He loses it, takes out his frustration, is she trying to bit him, hit him, etc.. all on the side of the highway just begging to get killed by a car/truck that didn't see everything.
Does he need to be disciplined, "YES" - in this case does he need to vilified -- not so sure. A lot of extenuating circumstances here. It's not like it 8-10 cops beating a drunk passed out guy w/night sticks. he's one guy trying save a psycho, who's not being cooperative, all why trying dodge cars on a busy busy highway, hoping he survives and can go home to his family at the end of the shift. I don't see much of a win-win result for anyone in this case.
Of course as usual the press has a field day, everyone pontificates, CHP over reacts too trying save face, no one wins -- sorta like the original situation...
I've used a media link router for the last couple of years.. worked flawlessly just like it was supposed to. Replaced it with a ASUS 'cause I needed to run Tomato Software. I was really suspicious of all the positive reviews - I use amazon reviews all the time to evaluate products. I spot a lot of obvious shill reviews, filter them out, look at negatives for repeating issues.
Company is stupid to call out a neg review when it's so overwhelmed by positives in the MediaLink case. But then if all the companies used their heads, they would all be driving gold plated benz's ... I swear the harbinger of the downfall of any civilization is the opening of the first law school!
Chairbot -- in the real world we call that a bar foot rail
Standing for long periods of time - you need to move your weight from one leg to another. The Bar Business developed the bar rail for just that reason. To keep folks comfortable at the bar so they would stay. Basically that is pretty much what the chairbot is. You can do the same thing with a couple of wood foot stools or boxes for a lot less than 2700$.
I am betting they have a rule against photography in the reading room so researchers don't photograph pages, etc... not meant for someone taking pic's of the room as a whole. Just a TWIT_NIT_WIT that is probably making min wage and thinks they are important, but doesn't understand the rule and why it's there, just reading his/her script like they were told to.
Thank god for those keepers of the gate preventing terrorism and book copying -- same thing right?

First 6 entries almost identical just local hops, but when it get's handed off to the backbone it gets interesting. Note the different destinations depending on the backbone when it get to the same IP address but different domains resolved based on the backbone it rode? Not all that surprising but also when I route local via comcast - look at hop 10 when it's handed off to Qwest (not surprising in my experience with Qwest networks).
The VPN definitely increases the latency across the board as expected. But the fact that netflix is resolving different FQDN's to the same IP from different aggregate ports in their network, a touch weird but then I don't work much with networks with that kind of capacity.
Ever wonder why they call it a CLOUD?? Fully opaque, easy to get lost, only god/buddha/allah know how it works and they aren't really sure. So as much as I hate big ISP's I never ascribe malice to what most likely is based in incompetence.
If we do that, how is the cop going to get to strip search and violate 2 women, shoot at a car full of kids, taser a 14 year old or kill a man who's trying to get help after he wrecked his car. They can't perform illegal searches, violate someones rights, racially profile them too. It will give them more time to patrol the schools and arrest 8 year olds for blowing spitwads from a straw or sexual harassment.
Sounds like a good plan to lessen the issues of folks getting abused by the armed police forces since they don't even have to talk to you to fine you.
How are they getting GPS to work in a lot of locations? Many many industrial locations have so much interference or physical blockage that GPS won't work. How do they account for that. I can take you a brass extrusion company where the ovens, smelters and electronic interference make cell phones useless in the parking lot. Good luck with GPS.
This sounds bad and it really is, But as was said, I am much more worried about what happens if they go out of business. Since I've worked on CNC's that are 20-30 years old w/control systems that are from companies that don't exist anymore. Old software, mod's, on and on and on with possible problems.
We complain we don't have public representation at standards/treaty negotiations.. but as soon as someone with a different view wants a seat that table of the open up everything crowd, we all bitch? Sauce for the goose?
If you want to look at the numbers, then kill more civilians = less cops dead. That would be a successful outcome to a lot of policeman. If that is what they are seeking, making it safer for cops with their tactics, well you have to admit it's working.
Now again, we can consider VietNam a pretty big success if you consider that the actual reason given for the war was to stop Communist expansion into SE Asia -- it did that. It's all a matter of what you criteria are (hope you can see the sarcasm here!).
What if they gay couple in question picked that photag just because they knew he was anti-gay and wanted to force him to provide service for their wedding? Stupid I know, but are they discriminating? If a person makes it's clear they don't want to work for you - for any reason, if you force them to aren't you discriminating against them based on the same reason they are discriminating against you... Why does it only go one way?
There was a recent lawsuit forcing a wedding cake bakery to do a cake for a gay wedding even though they felt it was wrong based on religion. Is designing and providing a wedding cake "free speech" .. if the art of photography is found to be free speech, any artistic en-devour would be similar no? Dress makers, party decorator's, wedding singers? What is 'free speech' in artistic impression?
It should occur to anyone that the NSA,CIA,FBI, etc.. have access to probably all the private data on both the SCOTUS and all elected representatives. Not to mention it's all under the control of "non-elected" bureaucrats or maybe we call them King Makers... you don't think for a single moment they won't play those cards, do you? This will never be dealt with at the any court level.
Why do you think some these so-called defense arguments that seem so ludicrous and defy logic, have staunch defenders in elected officials and judges. Are you really all that naive to think the fix isn't already in?
God it took an Allstate commercial to say it right!
"Man-eating sharks live in every ocean, but we still swim. Lighting strikes somewhere in the world, but we still play in the rain. So many things can happen. However, bad things in life can't stop us from making our lives good."
The school district, in a press release, said that due to construction going on at the school, there is "limited space" for the children to play during their 20-minute recess period. "With children in close proximity to each other, it is not safe for them to be engaged in unstructured play with hardballs," said the district.
Would not lead to the hyperbola of the moment that ever news source (even Mike) loves to see. This is on case where most everyone has it wrong. Now if they should not raise the ban when the construction is done, we have a legitimate discussion point.
