Can't believe that anyone other than Putin was even considered. Not that I admire him, it's just no one else is impacting the world as much as he is . He is single-handedly changing the face of the map and world politics.
Okay, now your original statement now makes sense. Conversation should be the basic tool that an officer relies on.However I still disagree. Why bet on a losing course of action? It would be hard to take, but I would take any amount of harassment. There would be not one possible outcome that would be positive if I lashed out. Not one.
Perhaps police violence is an issue of human nature without any reference to race. Let's see what Zimbardo or Milgram would have to say. Sometimes people treat other people horrifically because of the position they are assigned or because it's what they were instructed to do. Nah, let me put the lid back on that can of worms...
I disagree. If a person is acting violently, this situation is now more difficult to defuse by just talking. That seems rather obvious to me, but I'm willing to listen as to why you think adding violent behavior to any situation makes discussion more effective.In my observations and limited personal experience, any interaction with the police is best served by letting the police stay in control of the situation. Even if I feel my civil rights are being denied, I will do...
I see the inherent danger in this job. But on the other hand, how many jobs pay you while you eat, sleep, and watch TV? If I'm picking heroes, I'd have to go with volunteer firefighter. Same job with less training and worse equipment.I would have picked police officer and high school teacher from the list as the most underpaid.
Actually I find it easier to let the gorillas play wherever the hell they please. Damn dirty apes!
I can see the ED tie in though..."Why settle for It's a Small World when what you really desire is the Matterhorn, after that get ready for Mr. Toad's Wild Ride!"
After reading the article title again, I wonder how you would mount a cell tower on fake airplane? Seems easier to have a airplane-mounted fake cell tower.
Not sure how I feel about this. I see the potential for abuse, but at a base level, how much of an invasion of privacy is this? If they are only collecting IMSI data and location information, I have no problem with that. This seems to be analogous to having a police car driving around checking for license plates of cars linked to suspected criminals - actually this would be more invasive as the police could observe, while driving around, the behavior of people who were...
I didn't realize the coerciocn was so heavy-handed! Those bastards!
