    Poor tactics lead police to shoot woman in own home

    Police Chief is likely pissed, but also looking to save his job. There will be plenty of scrutiny on policies in place and training records. Unless those things are good to go, he’ll take a beating he may not survive. It’s good to be the Chief.....till something goes wrong, and it isn’t.

    Much, much, much different. We are supposed to exercise judgement sufficient to at the very least not make things worse......it’s a higher bar for us and it damn well should be. The public should expect no less.

    NFL 2019

    I'm pretty close to giving up on watching the NFL. I think I saw a blurb that in one game this past weekend there were 13 plays in a row with a penalty? Who the hell knows what a catch or interference is anymore. I have no idea how how defensive player can reasonably tackle a runner who comes straight on and puts his head down.... seems to me the helmet to helmet contact is caused by a last minute duck by the runner as often as the defensive players actions. Cant go low.....cant make any contact with the helmet....when the runner is running hard and low....what can the defensive player do except step aside?

    That's Europe. Sweden or Netherlands I think. Not good PR for the mortuary, I'd think! Very well found. That chipper isn't big enough get that job done. Partial limbs certainly but the whole thing....the pelvis will completely jam the thing up.......absolutely not. Never mind how I know.................

    Router Table Jitters

    So far as TV shows about craftsmen.........I really enjoy this one, "A Craftsman's Legacy". The host travels around and visits with craftsman from all trades and spends 1/2 hour chatting about their trade and how they got there, and then they make something in that trade showing how its done. Its a stellar show with real craftsman, not TV personalities, explaining their craft. Around here its on PBS. http://www.craftsmanslegacy.com/ Example preview of an episode. http://www.craftsmanslegacy.com/episodes/season_4/Episode-4

    Unfortunately, if its tendonitis, it's a pretty small solution set. Get an ortho eval to be sure and if it is..............rest and ice is pretty much it. There are any number of things people tell you to rub on it or wear............my experience has been rest and ice alternate with warm (especially once the acute has is better). The sad reality is there really is no magic bullet here.

    Worth pointing out he was not "all in" on his "attack" either.

    Planned power outages this week?

    My Expedition will not run on anything but regular without screwing up all the sensors for the anti-smog stuff. The owners manual is very specific about only using regular - 89 octane I think.

    This........always try to avoid at almost any cost.......but once you commit, do not let up for even a second till you have completely neutralized the threat. When you have gained the the advantage - even slightly - press it hard and without letting up. Thats actually harder to teach than it sounds.

    Yep........."trust me" assertions by people I don't know are bullshit. Why would I trust you when I don't know you or your character. If I do know you, its an unnecessary thing to say because I've already formed my opinion on whether you can be trusted or not based on your actions...not your assertion. So for me...........it's a meaningless phrase.

    Well.....on the heels of this, I just (30 minutes ago) saw a guy driving his electric scooter down Main Street in Seal Beach, no helmet, in traffic, with his cell phone held out in front of him talking his way through a selfie video while running a stop sign. Not an unusual lack of awareness/common sense/courtesy by the scooter crowd around Seal and Long Beach anyway.
