So did he end up stuck in Big Bear just because he broke an axle on his truck? This could have been an entirely different story if he decided to throw a motorcycle in the back of it just in case something like that happened. Once he had to abandon the truck, just take off somewhere else and go all Kaiser Soze.
Parsing words is also a good skill to have when evaluating legislation or pretty much everything a politician says.
Especially legislation like Obamacare where two years later we have no earthly idea how much it really is going to cost, but we "[had] to pass [the bill] so you can find out what is in it"...
If that wasn't a clear sign that everyone working needed to bend over and grab their ankles I don't know what is.
not necessarily. Many would refuse to fire on their countrymen.
Men armed with sticks took over tanks in some of those tiny countries seeking independence from Russia. It happens.
One last point I failed to make in this thread.
I would've been totally sympathetic to this dude except for one thing.
He used to be a cop.
Some tanks in Hungary and Czechoslavakia were given over to the rebellion members during those respective uprisings, and that famous Chinaman who stood in front of a tank and moved to block it, was famous (bet he is not longer to be found), BUT most of the time, those with sticks die. "Those tiny Countries" you refer to were Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia in which tens of thousands of their citizens were either killed or deported to Siberia and never heard from again by Stalinist USSR.
Give me a bottle of gasoline and a lit wick to throw, not a stick!
Whatever happened to the guy who stood in front of the tank in Tiannemen Square in 1989 - trivia question /questions answer / answers
Dude, Chinaman is not the preferred nomenclature.
As for what actually happened, I'm conflicted. I can't condone him killing that young woman, but we also saw what the cops priorities are when they shot up people who had nothing to do with the case and at best, didn't give a shit about getting Dorner alive, at worst, pushed him back into a flaming cabin to make sure he didn't get to speak his piece in court.
I don't see anything changing anytime soon, but the weird fetishization of our "infallible" police officers has always baffled me. I'm as white as it gets, and I got blindsided by a BPD member with a nightstick after the Ravens won the Superbowl, because I was trying to keep people from destroying media trucks, because, well, the police were standing there watching. Off the top of my head, since I came back here 3 years ago officers here have shot an undercover officer 41 times, broken a guy's ribs to the point where he suffocated on the blood in his lungs and then lied about him trying to swallow drugs(not found at the scene or in his system), shot and killed a guy just home from Iraq outside a bar because dude hit on his ex-girlfriend. Oh, and just this week, a TRAINING OFFICER shot a trainee in his face because he didn't check his actual weapon back in after coming back in from lunch.
Keep sweating Al-Qaeda, I'm scared of the cops.
I felt like I should have issued an amber alert for myself, just in case
I like this.
Surprise surprise. The man who wrote that manifesto didn't seem like the paranoid dummy they're saying he is.
Also, here's Cube's thoughts:
