      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. i find it interesting how two people can read /see the same thing and come away with a completely different view of it. i don't see his absence as anything close to dignity. to me it is like he is hiding. furthermore, i find that comment rather sad in that he is basically saying he has nothing good to say…that anything he would have to say would be criticism. it is in no way surprising…just pathetic and sad of him.
  2. george w. bush…former 2 term u.s. president. you ask as if you think he should be forgotten, that his tenure had no lasting consequences, that he is less relevant than other former u.s. presidents. do you believe any of the things i listed to be true?
  3. you don't have a fucking choice…it is your goddamn job and if you can't do it get the fuck out of it. ere on the side of safety or go to jail for negligent homicide, or worse, worse depending on how egregious your behaviour. jesus fucking christ, just stop excusing this shit. it's the excuses that piss people off. you are just full of them. everyone here likely knows police officers, has friends or family who are police officers. I doubt you can find a single person who would say that police officers are underpaid, may be put in life threatening situations in the course of their job. calling out the shit ones does not equal lack of support or respect for the men and women who are dedicated to serving the public. these endless excuses have to stop, you are not doing yourself or your fellow officers any favors by protecting and serving shit cops rather than the citizens you are sworn to protect and serve. you should be working as hard to get these fucks off the street as any civil rights lawyer, cause they make you look bad and your life harder…and often more dangerous.
  4. i could totally see some of you guys doing shit like this…... http://www.addictinginfo.org/2015/05/07/cops-to-white-people-stop-getting-freaked-out-by-your-black-neighbors-screenshots/
  5. I would disagree with you. The intent behind all of those cited posts is quite clear - none of them give a shit about the guys rights because he has a criminal past. His rights are violated, they do not care - ergo they think it is fine that he loses them. Pretty straightforward, and not at all unexpected. I hope its not unexpected because by law certain convicted criminals are required to lose certain rights. Do YOU care they lose their rights? They absolutely SHOULD lose their rights as required by law, after due process of law and no sooner. Meaning you can't strip away those rights before they are convicted. they never give half a shit until it's there own rights being lost.
  6. why you need to look further than what the msm feeds you... http://thefreethoughtproject.com/videos-arrest-baltimore-shows-msm-give-truth/
  7. How's sobriety treating you doggie? lolz…that was special. thanks for sharing, however…not quoting would be fine too.
  8. I understand I am ignorant in comparison to you, I am just trying to better contextualize my ignorance. So, what are your qualifications? sounds like someone with superior knowledge ®. one who possesses superior knowledge ® need not explain the foundation of it to anyone.
  9. +1000, well said PB. I was thinking the same thing re: dehumanizing yesterday and just couldn't express it as i wanted…you said it perfectly.
  10. She makes it sound like the justice is a product of the riots, not a product of the justice system (which she is an integral part of) functioning fairly and appropriately. Wrong message. Yep! She basically just told black America to riot and loot every time there is a perceived injustice and they will get what they want. Stupid bitch. it's so funny how people can read the same thing and get a different message….i guess it is a matter of perspective. btw, no surprise i disagree.
  11. If you think about this for 0.5 sec, it may occur to you that this door will be at the back of the van, and noone will be crashing backwards during a brake-testing stop. The suggestion that his head was not quite out of the way when they shut him in some time might have legs. very valid point. Hard acceleration or a door slam all fit the possibilities Hard acceleration in a Police van? What the hell do you think they have under the hood of those things? Rockets? purchased from acme … beep beep.
  12. why don't we already have van cams? should be standard equipment way before now.
  13. perhaps he was banging something against the partition or side of the van, especially if he could not talk or breath due to the asthma and refusal to be allowed and inhaler, or a crushed larynx. even if the claim is that he severed his own spine in three places, i still cannot see how one can crush their own larynx with hand cuffed behind his back and shackled feet.
  14. They're stupid and incorrect in regards to Baltimore. Why are you repeating his nonsense. Troy should be disregarded because you don't agree with his opinion? And, I'll bet you wonder why African-Americans feel they have no voice........ they tell people they need to shut up, sit down and be compliant…then harp on about how no black voices are heard….incredible. Troy is a remarkable young man whom I had the privilege to have in my classroom when he was a Senior in HS. Active in the SGA and Senior Class, he was and is everything many folks find objectionable - an intelligent and articulate black man. He is passionate, informed, polite, compassionate, and level-headed. He actually lives in Baltimore, having chosen to return here after being graduated from Morehouse. But, according to Saorsa, Troy is incorrect about his hometown. Maybe Saorsa will share with us how he comes to know this. Troy and I have stayed in touch over the years and I must say I would love it if there were more people like Troy in the world. Too bad folks like Saorsa would like to silence him, since their viewpoints are not in alignment. i really like reading his fb page…whether someone agrees with him or not, it's hard to try to claim he is not intelligent, articulate and feels very passionately about his city. i will definitely be following this young man's updates. btw…for the naysayers, this article supports what his p.o.v. http://www.attn.com/stories/1541/baltimore-poverty-facts?utm_source=usu&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=syndication
  15. jack booted usually proceeds thugs when directed towards officers of the law….
