      Tolly–your review looks like an “f” to me.

      When my best friend Mason went to jail last week, we had a collection to free Mason. Mason immediately went to a lawyer to get his affairs in order and the lawyer was so touched he did not charge for his services and gave Mason a free will.

      I think you need to update your sources…. just a little bit?

          In France, they do.

          Since we are the only ones here…when I got that RAT infection, I finally stopped using the infected hard drive and pulled out an older one with an earlier copy of the same OS. I got a “No mbr” Black Screen. Its taken about one week to fix the mbr with a generic windows repair disk I downloaded years ago. The Aoemi and another Partition Manager “Fix MBR” function did not fix it.

          I also installed Ubuntu on a Flash Stick and will be making it live in good time. If I can find some good video editing software and video transcoding software, I could well move to Linux on the next big infection. I “feel” no difference in Websurfing which is mostly what I do. In fact, my system did not stutter or stall at all with 12 websites open whereas Windows does…while I’m transcoding, so it is different.

          Always something to keep us busy. I see the Pro Cop position is coming on VERY strong. Is it just me, or does getting smashed in the face and the criminal runs away and you shoot him–thats excessive force and a manslaughter rap for you and me?

          It makes me want to vomit that there is justification because the cop has to protect himself “first”? so as to justify their shoot to kill first policies. Its a problem that causes itself.

          TAKE THE GUNS AWAY FROM COPS.

            “”I see the Pro Cop position is coming on VERY strong.

            Funny {the ha ha kind} of you to say that. I’ve been sort of noticing a buildup and proliferation of over-cuddly cop stories in the morning lineups the last couple months.

            You know? All those brainless, 3/4 ditzy yuck-it-up hours on Fox, NBC, …, CNN, … BET.

            “37 christians got their heads chopped off in Chad, this morning…Chris?”

            “Well, at least they didn’t leave any of them ‘hanging’. Ha. Ha. Ha…”

            I’d actually kinda been expecting something like this {not saying that it’s a psyop or anything (it is) … Remember: They are criminals. People are looking at them now and going ‘whaaa?’. And the poor ol beat cop across the nation is left scratching his head and going “I don’t get it… What did the officer do wrong?”

            Ya’ll don’t have government now. You have imposters pretending to be government.

            Self-loathing anarchists and gits everywhere you damn go…

            —————————

            Anyways. Yea, been there before. I was an idiot and wiped out all my partition information piddling with the MBR when all i needed to do was stick a new install over that first partition.

            Are you *sure* your ‘infection’ wasn’t some instance of ‘maintanence software’ on a hidden partition, or something? It could have been a software tenticle of a militarized police force…

          • NewFormatSux says:

            Yea, but a cop has an extra duty to protect the public. So shooting at a fleeing suspect in a robbery to get them to stop is legit.
            When the guy turns around and rushes the cop, then he is justified in shooting, though a Rodney King, and perhaps the best choice given what happened to the Rodney King cops who elected for a by the book takedown.

    Lengthy but good excerpt of a comment from a cop about the diff between Ferguson and the Bundy incident.

    Just contrast what has happened in Ferguson Missouri to what happened last spring in Bunkerville Nevada. In Ferguson we had the police reaction to protesters. In Bunkerville we had the protesters reaction to police. Two different groups of citizens with ostensibly the same 1st amendment issues but two drastically different reactions by the citizens and law enforcement. Based on what I saw of the operation on TV it looked like a tactical nightmare. I lost count of the problems that the agents faced when they went in to enforce a court order there. Mostly I believe they gave this guy Bundy too many chances for too long. When the BLM cops finally decided to go in there they weren’t committed to whatever the plan was. That indicates a major leadership issue.

    I was completely stunned to see those officers surrounded by screaming people with assault rifles, a police dog getting kicked, and open defiance of verbal commands. But when I saw that those officers had sniper rifles pointed at them I could not believe my eyes. Snipers. On live TV. Let me repeat that:

    On the Bundy Ranch, armed protesters were violently obstructing law enforcement from performing their duties. Sniper rifles were pointed at those law enforcement officers. Then those “snipers” openly gloated about how they had the agents in their sights the entire time. And what was the police response? All out retreat. Nobody was arrested. No tear gas deployed. No tanks were called in. No Snipers posted in the neighborhood. No rubber bullets fired. Nothing. Police officers in mortal danger met with heavily armed resistance and no one had to answer for it. Could any reasonable person look at scenes coming out of Nevada and say they looked peaceful?

    Nobody called the armed protesters at the Bundy Ranch who threatened police thugs. Nobody told them the government was supreme so they should just let the system work it out. Nobody told them to just shut up and do what they were told.

    2 incidents, same laws, but 2 different sets of rules.

    On a certain level I understand the retreat. Bundy was looking for a showdown. He wanted bloodshed. He was just using those people camped out on his lawn as cannon fodder, he had no real respect for them. He just wanted to get out of paying his bills. If actual shooting had occurred do you think Bundy or his sons would have led the patriot army in a revolt and stormed the battlements? Hell No. Clive Bundy and his family would have been on the first thing smoking out of Nevada and some poor idiot with a goatee and a Gadsden Flag shirt would have paid for Bundy’s hubris with their life. But thankfully that didn’t happen. Once that dog whistle blew, people picked their side and the Bundy Ranch became a manifestation of all that pent up rage. They even had law enforcement supporters there giving speeches about putting women and children out front to get shot by the Feds first. (That guy was an embarrassment to the profession.)

    Bundy’s strategy was effective because sympathetic news outlets kept pumping him up as a patriotic conservative when in reality Bundy was not conservative and he definitely is not patriotic. The man was just a welfare cowboy who had renounced his own country. But facts didn’t matter. Law enforcement let them off the hook and so did the media. The press didn’t call what those people did to those officers in Nevada a riot. But I haven’t seen any protesters in Ferguson hanging the American flag upside down, or renouncing their citizenship. I haven’t heard of any protest leaders on the street in Ferguson Missouri calling for the overthrow of the city council or the removal of the mayor by force. What about those “2nd amendment remedies” that politicians were hinting at 5 years ago? Just imagine if there were 150 black folks walking around Ferguson with assault rifles right now. Imagine if a couple of them took up sniper positions on the tops of buildings with their rifles pointed at the police officers. Take a quick guess at how that story ends.

  9. Phydeau says:

    Police officials admit the officer was shooting at people running away from him.

    How does a person running away from the officer constitute a threat that the officer must respond to with deadly force?

    (don’t worry pedro, the puppies are being taken care of)

    However, law enforcement officials say witnesses and forensic analysis have shown that Officer Wilson did sustain an injury during the struggle in the car.

    As Officer Wilson got out of his car, the men were running away. The officer fired his weapon but did not hit anyone, according to law enforcement officials.

    Former military wondering why the Ferguson police have so much military gear on…

    http://businessinsider.com/police-militarization-ferguson-2014-8

    “Why do these cops need MARPAT camo pants again,” I asked on Twitter this morning. One of the most interesting responses came from a follower who says he served in the Army’s 82nd Airborne Division: “We rolled lighter than that in an actual warzone.”

    In Afghanistan, we patrolled in big, armored trucks. We wore uniforms that conveyed the message, “We are a military force, and we are in control right now.” Many Afghans saw us as occupiers.

    And now we see some of our police officers in this same way. “The militarization of law enforcement is counter-productive to domestic policing and needs to stop,” tweeted Andrew Exum, a former Army infantry officer.

    If there’s one thing I learned in Afghanistan, it’s this: You can’t win a person’s heart and mind when you are pointing a rifle at his or her chest.

    You’re so smart pedro, you explain the difference in police response to irate white people vs irate black people. /// In Ferguson it was local police, in Bundy it was Federal Land Agents. Two very different groups. Local police much more subject to corruption and local vagaries. The Feds more mindful of history and longer term effects.
    Also to the same point regarding the slop think of conflation, or dumping every nuance into a generality, the actions of the first cop in Ferguson were against a Black Youth, but “the cops” attacked the entire community of every color. Do did the guard troops that came in later. And that is the danger of over militarization/SEPERATION of the cops from the people. It will start against the suspect group, but rapidly more to everyone else not dressed exactly like you are. I can easily see the military camo types firing on the police, different camo designed, troops very easily. It is after all a very juvenile thing: us vs them, shirts vs skins, my team not your team.

    Silly Hoomans.

      What?

      The subjugation and corruption has been fracked into the local communities from *the feds* from early on — and through pressure and osmosis, are the local values and individuals pushed out and destroyed.

      There has never been a more murderous institution in history than *the feds* and their corporate masters *the monsantos, …, PETA, the Federal Reserve… Yes, even provocateuring racial tensions and hatred of ki… nosey mother-in-laws:

      Furthermore, this rollout is also ‘par for the course’ with the Agenda 21 {so you don’t drown} — a militarized police force really is going to roll right through everybody’s damn tomato patch.
