  2. A cop in my town went viral in Tennessee because he posted a Facebook video detailing why he’s quitting the force at the end of the month. No, it’s not because Black Lives Matter or anything like that. It’s because he fears retaliation from people he has arrested, is tired of his brothers and sisters in the force being murdered “because of the uniform they’re wearing”, and because of the way cops are being treated right now. It’s a big ol’ sob story copaganda thing. The thing that stood out to me is the cognitive dissonance to state “It’s an eerie feeling that you go anywhere and you

  9. I think a reasonable reform that can be done is to abolish asset forfeiture. It's legalized theft for the police, and that money that they steal is often used to buy ridiculous military equipment for police use. And to defend yourself against asset forfeiture is extraordinarily difficult and specialized. Oh, and there's no exclusionary rule in asset forfeiture, so the cops can literally do an illegal search that would get shut down and does get shut down in criminal court and still be justified in stealing the money. It's insanity. And I know defund the police is popular, but I think

  11. I am an HU alumnus and I slept in a bathtub in a hotel room during the first night of the Greekfest riots of '88 where Va Beach cops decided that using tear gas on black kids would be preferable to just letting them party like white kids at Daytona Beach did, so I know they can't be trusted. And just when I believe I am satisfied with my stance, I think about my kid brother huddled under the desk in his office with his students while Seung Hui Cho was gunning people down in the hallway no more than 200 feet from where they were bunkered in and wondered if tactically armed police ready to

  12. I know you weren’t trying to justify its general use, and I agree that any kind of police department is going to require some kind of tactical arsenal. The difference between that and a free-for-all arms race rationalized by real and imagined threats that only benefits BAE Systems and Raytheon executives is my concern. And since the reasoning behind it often ventures into specious dog whistle territory and not the pragmatic position you have on it, I have a hard time believing they can be trusted with the equipment.

  14. Enjoyed the Blood Orange segment. Quen selling while getting his shit in even to his own detriment was really good stuff. Best he's looked yet, even if it wasn't near in quality to the Bucks upset, it showed me more from him than that tag match did. He CAN work a wrestling match with a story and selling. That corkscrew DDT thing was dope. Cody resorting to working a body part, including a pre-existing injury, is a good way of putting over the kids by selling his desperation AND PLANTING THE FUCKING SEEDS for a Cody heel turn. Very much the "just a show" it seemed to be on paper but

  16. I agree to a certain extent, but that's not really what I am talking about. The proliferation of hardcore guns amongst private citizens in general has caused police forces to arm themselves in kind. No normal beat cop in Vegas would've had the firepower to deal with that bumper stock shooter a while ago and every second he's waiting for back-up, people on the street are getting massacred. He's got to go in with what he has so he doesn't look like that cowardly sheriff in Florida, even if what he packing cannot match up with what the shooter has. Incidents like this are rare but th

  17. These aren’t the people they’re arming themselves to take on. The overlap in the Venn diagram between them and the racist loose cannon militia guys who are itching to murder someone makes an almost perfect circle. We'd need to dismantle the entire system and create actual public safety programs or else it’s always going to be packed with cruel reactionaries who think that they’re an occupying army.

  18. Thoughts on the first half of the show (trying to watch the rest later!) Really good tag match between FTR and B&B. Best I've seen B&B look so far. While I liked Jericho on commentary with Tony a few weeks back, I don't think he worked that well in a four-man booth. Just too much of him stepping on everyone else to get his shit in, and just YELLING to damn much. I enjoyed the women's match except for the legdrop spot, which took too long to set up and made the babyfaces look like morons who couldn't figure out how to get off the ropes. Funny how a beltshot finish can

  20. A very solid show. FTR vs. Butcher / Blade was weird as both teams were teetering between tweener and heel. It was cool to see them finish off B&B with the Brainbuster's spike piledriver while the Brainbusters were out in the audience. Ladies tag was perfectly fine and it was obviously there to give Penelope Ford some ring time since she is as green as grass. Nyla Rose is fucking awesome. What is the best way to get me to love workers I absolutely hate? Give Kip Sabian and Jimmy Havoc a Chikara sounding tag-team name like the SUPERBAD DEATH SQUAD~! Orange Cassidy b

  23. It seems like there’s a biannual discourse about asset forfeiture that goes nowhere politically. It probably has more bipartisan traction than most police reforms, so I’m still hopeful.

  24. The thing is by now, everyone has had time to build a case on Calvillo. Plus, when she stepped up in competition at 115, she certainly wasn't as dominant. She's not fighting Amanda Cooper anymore, who was a decent striker but pretty bad on the ground. Flyweight isn't great by any stretch of the imagination, but Jessica Eye is probably the best gatekeeper the division has right now. She's basically what Yushin Okami was for five years at middleweight: Not remotely close to a match for the champion, but super tough for almost everyone else. For what Eye lacks in technique, she makes up with dogg

  29. Yes, to clarify, I meant Turner Broadcasting. Not Ted personally. And yeah, think of it as the difference between a television show produced by a network and a show independently produced by a production company that then sells it to a network. Although like Mister TV pointed out, it’s really one large umbrella and it’s just about how the money is allocated. The benefit to the execs at Turner Broadcasting with Thunder is that they didn't have to report the costs under their part of the umbrella (WCW did) but they still get the advertising revenue. The important thing is that it’s in

  30. If everyone who used the DDT paid royalties to Jake The Snake, he'd have weed money for the rest of his life. Just be like KENTA. If someone nicks your finsher, make up another one that looks even more lethal than the last one. I actually hate the GTS and would rather see KENTA kill people with the Busiaku Knee Kick. As much as I like Will's answer the simpler answer is that Xia works in the WWE and Penelope works in AEW, so I don't see the issue. Your badass move is still unique enough for most of your hardened viewers. Now if I were Xia and all of a sudden Aliyah started us

  32. THIS RIGHT HERE. I got pulled over making a left on green a few months ago and the cop told me it was red. It's a turn I make every singe weekday so I knew it was green. Even though I argued with him (THAT is white privilege -- I didn't get shot or arrested for arguing), he didn't give me a ticket. Quite obviously, he was just on a fishing expedition. I can't even remember the last time I was pulled over for something even approaching justified. Twice I've been pulled over for speeding on 4-5 lane roads with nobody else on the road, once at 9-10 at night, once at 5 in the mornin

  40. This is the first time I've watched AEW, this shit is on TSN so why not. I made notes throughout the evening. Oh god it's 2020 and I'm watching wrestling again. Butcher/Blade vs FTR I didn't see a face team out here, which was weird. Other than that the match was fine. Everything was executed well. I don't really think it needed this many near falls but it's not like they did anything too crazy. Lots of good double team moves. Announcers killed the best false finish with the old chestnut "this could be it", thanks for that. Post match stuff just seemed like a bunch of heels all actin

When I was about 12 he sat me down and talked to me about how to deal with the police. You know what he told me? Don't trust the cops. Some might be good people and some might be bad, but you should never assume they're on your side or are trying to help you. Be respectful and polite so you don't give them any excuses, but don't say a thing without a lawyer or let them search anything without a

  43. Oh you know us black dudes. We can't behave and we have super strength and high pain thresholds so only tasers set on maximum charge or bullets will work on us. On the real though, I don't know a black father who hasn't had "the talk" with his kids and that includes me. The Talk for us isn't about sex, though. It's about how to not get yourself killed by the fucking cops while you are out and about. It was heartbreaking to tell my near valedictorian daughter that she needs to watch herself around police for just being black. The Talk has had to change over the years, though. Phi
