    That does seem logically inconsistent. The only thing I have to add is that one of the articles linked earlier in the thread gave an explanation that if convicted on all 3, his sentencing would only...

    Thanks for having the patience to explain it better than I did. I admit that Mystery's argument style in several threads has tried my patience recently, and that may bias me against him, so I...

    I can't speak for what's happening in Minneapolis, but the St. Paul PD scanner feed is a lot quieter than I remember from the riots last summer, mostly sounds like stuff I'd guess is fairly normal...

    Well that's heavily dependent on the rest of the circumstances in which the hypothetical you kills someone, isn't it? In this hypothetical, are you a police officer trying to arrest this 90% organ...

    You rather grossly misunderstand me. Floyd presumably knew all of those things about himself and still chose to fight the cops and put his body under that heightened level of stress. I'm impugning...

    I'm pretty close to that myself. It's confusing to me how meth + fentanyl + heart disease/75-90% blockage of coronary arteries + his own choice to fight the cops does not equal reasonable doubt that...

    St. Paul one is quiet so far, but I have to imagine that'll change once the verdict is read, and change more once it gets dark out.

    2nd degree manslaughter is already one of the charges, so that would seem to be covered.

    The fact that you can still order projectiles for loading your own at vaguely reasonable prices says that part of the supply chain isn't a problem. Primers are unobtanium and very expensive. Powder...

    Not a cop, but I did a 10 PM - 8:30 AM shift 4 days/week for ~8 years. The biggest thing that helped me with sleep was blackout curtains in my bedroom. It helped me with tricking my body into...

    Agreed. Hell, the last time I played paintball (MANY years ago), I typically sent at least 5 balls at anyone I was trying to hit just in the time the first ball spent in the air. There's a reason...

    My also-not-a-lawyer assessment agrees with yours. Pointing a handgun when you intended to point a Taser seems to me like negligently creating a higher level of risk of death for the person at whom...

    So far at least, this doesn't seem to have become anywhere near as much of a metro area-wide extravaganza of burning, looting, and rioting as last summer was. Since I'm a significant distance away...

    This was north of Minneapolis in one of its suburbs, so it actually wasn't MPD. The smaller suburb might have a tougher time paying out a large settlement than Minneapolis would have.

    That's fair - I just find the people saying things like "this was inevitable" when the burning and looting starts after one of these police incidents to be extremely disingenuous, that's all.
