Re: Calling All Liberal Race Baiters

But I do notice that everyone's dropped the "racism" explanation. Funny, that. I wonder what they realized... :wink: They realised that you will explain away each event individually, while the whole point of systemic racism is that's evident more from the patterns within the data rather than the in...

Re: Natural death causing viruses prove that humans are never free

Duh. Humans have freedom in some situations and don’t in others. Take the trolley problem as an example of both situations. You, as the switch operator, have the freedom to make a choice regarding which course the trolley takes. The ones on the tracks face a situation beyond their control. They must...

Re: Calling All Liberal Race Baiters

Skep, I asked you earlier if the officer followed procedure correctly, do you think just-following-orders would be a successful defense, in your opinion. Just curious. He was not simply following an Order to go put his knee on the suspects neck. After sizing up the situation, he made the decision t...

I’ve seen no evidence that Schlumpers can tolerate normal people. The rest of us have love for anyone.

Re: Calling All Liberal Race Baiters

Skepdick, I agree with all you say except there is one point which, while I don’t oppose it, I am actually wondering what your thoughts are and whether we should consider it further. If the officer followed procedure in every detail and stayed completely within policy, is he innocent, as you said? ...

Re: Calling All Liberal Race Baiters

Okay. Let's start there. WHY did he die? Because his brain was deprived of oxygen. What deprived his brain of oxygen? Was he in respiratory arrest, and did he claim not to be able to breathe even before he was knelt on? Did fentanyl have anything to do with it? Was his neck compressed unduly? Was h...
