Switched from a French door with water/ice dispenser to a single door without a water/ice dispenser. I thought I would really miss the water/ice dispenser, but it took two days for me to stop caring. I also definitely prefer the more streamlined look and the layout of the single door. I'm now in the French door is overrated camp. I also like having a shallower fridge, as I would forget about about stuff that would get shoved in the back behind other things.
Definitely. The stacked wood was a little too precious. I do like the chair, though.
Yes, it is a cool chair. In fact, I found that other pic when looking up info on it because of your post. Your taste has now been validated by an internet stranger!
Or a foot.
This isn't complicated. You believe the stuff that protects you. As I've said repeatedly, believing he has TBI is the safe approach that protects the officer. Err on the side of caution to protect yourself and the individual.It's not incongruous for a cop to assume he has TBI, but also to not believe he's unarmed. Assume the stuff that makes you act more cautiously. Assuming mental health issue and the presence of a gun both make you more cautious, even if one entails...
You misconstrued a statement that was clearly a reference to a general concept and not this particular incident, ignored that there was no attribution to his wife, and forgot the five other statements I made in direct contradiction. So, no I don't really see how your reading was reasonable. You had a notion about what I was saying in your head and ran with it. That's cool. I do it too sometimes. But I'm the one who needs to be more careful?There's no magic answer. However,...
 You're just making things up. I, literally, never said that his wife said he was disabled. I said, like five times, that his wife said he had TBI. - "I've heard no more than the guy's wife saying that he has TBI in the now released video."- "The officers had reason to know that he may have TBI, because his wife was telling them."- "The jury may still be out on whether he had TBI or not. As I said, I only have heard his wife's comments."- "The officers were told he had...
It's irritating that you misconstrue what I said. First, I said TBI CAN be a disability, not TBI = disability. Although, talk to our wounded veterans. They may feel more strongly. Also, I said I've personally dealt with many instances of people exaggerating disabilities, so I'm not sure what you're trying to prove.Next, not sure why you are questioning the veracity of my experience, but whatever. These aren't PC lectures. I've worked FOR federal law enforcement agencies....
We are more than you think. Sometimes I get bored at work and like to argue and debate. Sorry.
 For numerous years, I worked on legal issues related to how law enforcement officials interact with people with disabilities, including those with TBI and other issues that impact cognitive and mental ability. I have reviewed countless documents where I had to make legal determinations about whether someone had a disability that impacted their mental capacity and awareness and have frequently found them to be exaggerated. So, yeah, I know about it. I also have traveled...
