Remember that eye doctor who got entrapped into placing football bets for a Fairfax, Va. cop and then executed by the Fairfax SWAT team? It was an obvious abuse by the police, but the one thing I could never figure out is exactly why the police went to all of that trouble to arrest someone for gambling. That just goes to show how naive I am. Turns out, Fairfax cops rob gamblers for the same reason that Willie Sutton robbed banks: That's where the money...
Maybe, but given the large number of CIA officials confirming the story in the Post, it seems like the top levels of the Administration must have approved.The revelation is occurring as Israel and Hezbollah are trying to patch things up after recent exchange of fire. Hard to believe its a coincidence but I can t really figure Obama's angle on this.
So the US government decides that now would be a good time to reveal that the CIA and the Mossad killed the Hezbollah bomber in 2008? Wonder why.
You are likely to have more dropped passes when you throw quick passes to the slot or into the middle which is what the Patriots do. Deflating the ball allowed them to play an extremely risky passing game with only average number of dropped balls. Or that would be the story. Not sure if you could really get away with an underweight ball for 5 years.I wonder how they will handle the balls during the Superbowl. Will the Patriots footballs be under guard by US marshals?
This is awesome. Once again White House officials reveal supposedly top secret operations damaging national security. Doesn't seem to bother anyone but me. http://www.nytimes.com/2015/01/19/world/asia/nsa-tapped-into-north-korean-networks-before-sony-attack-officials-say.html
Disappointing. Special teams players missed key assignments on critical plays. Why does GB always have such crappy special teams?
In a shocking turn of events, it turns out the months of protests in Ferguson were Democratic party astroturf. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2913625/Billionaire-George-Soros-spent-33MILLION-bankrolling-Ferguson-demonstrators-create-echo-chamber-drive-national-protests.html Bet this story gets a lot of play stateside.
yuThis seems like a fair point. The case that New York makes is that they are aggressively patrolling the most violent neighborhoods of NYC. This means that the racial demographics of their searches are likely to match the racial demographics of the most violent criminals. The police exercise a caution for safety, and perhaps they err on the side of caution, but that means they search a lot of innocent people for weapons and come up empty. But when they do come up with...
I was persuaded by this report. Thanks for posting. I think you might be underselling the last point. In all of their tests against racial bias, they controlled for age demographics. Their inclusion or otherwise seemed to have no effect on the results.
