Excellent. Then I am sure we all agree that it is the perfect time for Europe to step up its role in the fight against ISIS. I am confident that, with their leadership, Raqqa will be liberated soon.
This is a great point. I strongly recommend European countries take it to ISIS in Raqqa. Have at it, fellas.
NY Times "The Americans are providing targeting intelligence and refueling Saudi warplanes involved in bombing rebel positions. But coalition strikes have also destroyed hospitals, markets and residential neighborhoods, killing large numbers of civilians."
yIm an American. You know, the country that bombed Yemen today.http://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/13/world/middleeast/yemen-rebels-missile-warship.html?hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&clickSource=story-heading&module=first-column-region®ion=top-news&WT.nav=top-newsI do realize that, yesterday, we were pretending that we weren't involved in Yemen. But, seriously, you are still pretending? Well, I suppose you can always be counted on to regurgitate yesterday's talking points.
In terms of the Beirut 1982-1983 timeline, how far are we along in Yemen? I think there is still time for us to call this a mistake and walk away.
This has to help GOP congressional candidates, having a non-crazy Republican on national TV.
Obviously, PCP makes people behave irrationally and makes them potentially violent. If she had shot some random law-abiding citizens for putting their hands near a car window, she would be convicted for murder not manslaughter.I concede my opinion does not take into account hypothetical flights of fancy. If those become relevant, I may reconsider.
Yeah, even assuming that she knew he was on PCP which seems very plausible, he never even reached inside his car. Shooting him on the grounds that he might have been about to reach in his car where there might be a gun, seems unreasonable.That said, if I was a judge, I would probably be as lenient as possible, unless there are other circumstances.
I had assumed the Tulsa DA had over-charged the cop that shot the duster there. But looking at the definition of 1st degree manslaughter it seems about right. Probably the only defense is to say it was reasonable to shoot given the behavior. I guess to me, "I thought he was reaching into his car and there might have been a gun in there," does not seem reasonable. All the stuff about being deaf seems irrelevant. I guess if I were her, I would probably go for a jury trial....
I would go with the indefinite pronoun "one." As in "One is not amused." or "One did not turn in one's homework, did one?"
