    With murderous intent?
    You can feel free to believe what you want.

    Ignoring what he should have had, if he did not, a simple push. His own arms. Would have been less deadly.

    There’s not much I can do if you simply reject the parallels.
    Angry mob of people yelling and chanting.
    Approaching police and civilians.

    Deadly force isn’t the choice solution.
    It doesn’t matter what group is where they don’t belong. It doesn’t matter what group is breaking the law. It doesn’t matter what group is angry for what reason.

    If your to blind to see the only difference between cities around the country and the capital is what they were angry about then there’s nothing anyone can do.

    “… but you left that part out because you're fundamentally dishonest.”

    I left that out because the American far right has very little to do with Republicans.

    The American far right, generally, want’s nothing to do with government at all,l: the vast
    Majority looking to destroy or dismantle it completely.

    And yet the anti-police movement is “black lives matter”
    When someone says all lives
    Matter it’s declared racist.

    A beanbag round from that distance would likely have been permanently damaging if not fatale. But at least you can say they tried not to kill her.

    Let’s backtrack here. Completely outside of party politicking.

    You know there’s a rally and a plan for a protest March, ending at the capital. So they SHOULD have been readily supplied with the ‘typical’ crowd control devices.
    Tear gas, pepper gas, CS.
    Tasers, shields, clubs.

    They should have had dispersement rounds.
    Rubber shot, bean bag slugs.

    They should have kept them out of the building, or at the most in the lobby. A single canister of CS would have cleared the lobby in 15-30 seconds.

    For all the complaints about excessive force, there’s stunningly little over this at all.
    Given the outrage over much more dangerous people being shot on video by police than a woman climbing through broken glass…?
    Like a girl being shot as she’s about to stab someone in a neck.
    But it’s racial because she was black.
    Or the machete maniac who comes flying out of a room at full sprint. But it’s racial because he’s Mexican.
    Or the man holding the knife to his girlfriend’s throat. But it’s racial because he’s Asian.
    Or here, based on a dozen plus videos now, a lady trying to climb through the glass window of a door in no position to hurt, let alone kill, anyone.

    None of these needed lethal force.
    But I am pointing out where’s the outrage here?
    Someone is dead and the police did it.
    Someone is dead that could have been stopped by any number of less than lethal methods.
    Hell, in that position just shove her back through! Didn’t look like she had a prayer to make it anyway.

    Yes, I was wrong about her position. I believed it was the guy in the stay-puff style jacket that was climbing through. In fact I thought she was short from the stairs, not from the front.
    Finding the truth here today actually makes me more angry about the shooting. He looked her in the face and fired point blank.

    Regardless of the reason for being there, such a response was more lethal than necessary.
    In each of these cases outlined. And in nap many others.

    Don’t turn your head and ignore it becau You disagree with the circumstances. Police kill too many people. That’s a period statement.
    Doesn’t matter who’s dead. They shouldn’t be.

    You use anti government anarchists, who aren’t even collectively racist, as an example of republicans?

    These aren’t Republicans of any sort. Nor any sort of pro trump supporters. They’re anarchists.

    Nice. What? Was I not supposed to look it up?

    Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re:

    Wow.
    We, as in me and the majority, agree in general:
    When a criminal runs at a cop with a machete, we a taser is the best choice.
    When a crazed loon speeds his car backwards into a cruiser on a safety check a taser is warranted,
    When a suspect refuses to show their hands a taser is warranted.

    Do you really think she couldn’t have been stopped with a taser? A bean bag shell. Rubber pellets. A quick shove with a body shield?
    For all the options a deadly round kill shot?

    Ask two questions:
    Was there a better option?

    Would I be just as comfortable with deadly force if she had be Black, Asian, Indian, Anyone other than a white trump supporter?

    You have zero chance of me believing Republicans burnt anything during the nation wide riots without a court record of conviction.

    Your ranting hatred is clearly the left wing version of the q fucks you don’t like.

    Maybe if you stoped acting like a spoiled 2yo when people don’t bow down and worship the ground you and your like walk on, we, the non-2-party bloc, may be more open looking at something.

    Because people like you, vile, militantly angry, the pure hatred for anyone not lock step to you… you scare me.
    You check every profile box for someone who is set to do something violent in response to being ignored.

    If you had pointed to the montage on daily motion up front that clearly shows her attempt to climb in the window when she was executed instead of lier lier.

    Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re:

    Well, it took me half an hour to find a video that clearly shows it.
    Yes, you are apparently correct, a rare occurrence.

    So it like it’s, in actuality, another misuse of deadly force.

    “ You can't "fix" voter fraud without fixing access to ID”
    Bingo!
    If everyone has ID the point of concern is moot. Let’s start getting these IDs out!

    “ or fundamentally changes what was being said”
    The fact that the comment was in relation to (hypothetical) voter fraud via indiscriminate mail in voting with minimal verification.
    His firm belief in a situation that does not, currently, exist doesn’t change the context of what he was saying it in.
    It wasn’t about Republicans wining a fair election or not. It was about loosing in the case of voter fraud via unsolicited mail in voting.

    “Obama is still attacked for saying "57 states" even though he clearly didn't mean…”
    Lol. That’s actually the very first time I’ve heard that.

    “ Something I've noticed recently is that after I agreed to set my default search in one of my browsers to try and grab some more reward points”
    I wouldn’t say /more/. Bing’s algorithm doesn’t Dow rank the way Google does. And keep in mind most alternatives depend on Google, including duck.

    For better and for worse, and I do mean that, bing doesn’t have the same “by source” manipulation/ranking/CallItSomethingHere.

    The results are generally, but not completely, more organic.

    “ Why don't muslims decry terrorism”
    They do. Despite your refusal to accept my own statement I’m not right wing. Or Republican.

    “ You favour news from the same source”
    I’d invite you to actually try looking at the news feed. Which, while it includes FNC headlines (that I usually skip as they’re opinion pieces) also includes over 100 affiliates, who have full editorial control and we’re grandfather in in the Murdoch takeover.

    And the existence of a few bad Cops does not exonerate BLM supports who commit acts of looting and arson. Nor those who stand up for them.

    Police have been calling out bad cops for decades. The top result for “cops say bad cops bad name” is a series of 2004 articles.
    When you push past the BLM stuff that follows you find many many many stories and interviews and statements by police calling out the ‘bad cop’ issues.
    I myself pointed out, just a few posts back, that there’s definitely something lopsided in the use of deadly force.

    “ Which only really exists”
    If they really do walk away.

    “That's fine, but where is this even being suggested”

    You miss my entire premise, if the Republicans have their own platform maybe they’ll give on on fighting other ones. That’s exactly what they’re doing by suggesting breakups and mandates on App and Play.

    “ The point is, you need to fix the ID issue before you fix the "voter fraud" issue, because unless you do that then you are disenfranchising people. ”

    Or… fix both at the same time.

    And nice out of context clip from the guardian. From what I can find, since they don’t link to the source video/transcript, is that was right smack in the middle of a discussion about the potential for no-id fraud!

    Oven with my disagrezthat mail in fraud is prevalent at this time (and agreeing it could be)
    That’s entirely different From saying ‘we won’t win fair elections’

    Maybe do the same verification you demand I do? I just highlighted the quote and tapped search Bing.

    One example?
    And “ Destroying property and setting fires cannot be your only activism.”
    Doesn’t help.
    I am glad to see someone stand up against the rioting though.

    “ you just won't see Tucker Carlson admit it.”
    And that means what to me? I made it clear I can’t stand the FNC talking heads.

    “ it's easier for you to invent a fictional version of people to attack”
    Every time a protest turns violent and commits illegal acts, those that care about the law will look unfavourably on the movement.

    Complaining about illegality whilst committing illegal acts is the ultimate hypocrisy.

    I prefer BSD myself but it’s a flavour choice.
    And way off topic.

    This is just another Android Linux with an alt App Store.
    It it makes them happy maybe they’ll leave me alone.

    I’ll just stick with the idea that they want to talk to each other. Not host malware.
    I have nothing against that.

    I hope it works out for them.

    Whilst you look at all the potential negatives: I’m looking at the major positive.
    Maybe they’ll be so self consumed in their own app world they’ll stop bitching about the App Store and Play?

    Because I don’t want one button side loading on iOS/iPad OS.
    Competent users can easily side load on an iPhone via a terminal emulator.
    I use iSH.

    I don’t want iOS to become another android where stability and security are tossed out the window for interoperability and open warfare, er app use.

    For me, I see a quick way to have Republicans take their ball and go home. And stop demanding I give up mine.

    …so let’s discuss the actual issue with voting id.
    How do we get 10mil people who don’t have govern id back into the system.

    A free we com to you program?
    How about registration cards at every post office.
    A web portal. A phone hotline.
    Buy them dinner to show up? Works for covid vaccination!

    We’re not talking rocket science.

    Fox new feed. Which combines local and National coverage across the Fox branding. It includes Fox News Channel coverage, but is independent of it.

    I never said the NYT was a hate read. It’s left, Fox is right. Truth is in the middle.
    BB is entertaining. Like ARS, which I also read, when you step out of the politics there’s some good coverage on other things.

    Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re:

    Funny. I point out multiple times how BLM and DTP movements fail to sort out the few bad form mostly good police.
    I point out how the movement over all does little to dissuade or disown violence and crime in its ranks.
    All while demanding police do.

    If you (the movement) want support don’t be a hypocrite.
    Where’s the BLM leaders disavowing the “thugs” among them?
    Where do they stand up against their own criminal element?

    I disagree with how the movement is going about it’s push.
    That doesn’t make me racist, it makes me rational.

    I’m not going to listen to ‘criminal cops’ from ‘criminal protestors’ rioters.
    You loose your moral ground when you turn to criminal methods.

    Btw: I don’t mean when I have it. You’ll be hard pressed to find something to motivate me to move from the vastly superior Apple ecosystem running on top of the BSD platform.
    Not for yet another Android mod.

    Choice of example was intentional.

    Someone somewhere will always complain.
    But I take the intent at face value.

    Republicans are demanding every piece of malware be platformed. They’re demanding freedom of access.

    This is exactly what was declared when talking heads said ‘go make your own’.

    What I see is: ‘wow, that’s actually did it, let’s find something wrong’.

    I’ll gladly point out issues as they come up. I’m not going to invent them in my head.

    This is an over priced look at me phone.
    But, it is filling a market spot that considers itself left out. We’ll see what the final product is when we have it.

    “… do not have government-issued photo identification"
    Ok, there’s our disconnect.

    First, that number is higher than the DMV numbers give us.
    Which gives us around 9% or 23 million.
    That doesn’t include RealID. Which depending on the conflicting government sources is another 13-15 million.
    So 10 million without government ID

    So in honesty this isn’t the kind of numbers the Democrats are making it out to be. Not when you start counting other forms of photo identification.

    Obviously you can figure out I believe every citizen has a right to vote.
    And reaching those remaining people is a must.
    The best way to do that is not hopping on an airplane and having a show flight party.
    It’s sitting at the table and making sure these voting security laws address the remaining people who would be left out.

    And I see this in the same way as the green new deal.
    I don’t think the green new deal itself is a bad plan. I think it’s incomplete.
    And these voting security plans aren’t bad either. They’re incomplete.
    In a drive to get it down and ram them through major holes are not addressed.

    If the Dems would sit down, maybe a competent set of bills can be passed.
