I'm glad we don't have a block.

I think it is a block even if you own the whole thing.

I think what he means is that where he lives, roads are not arranged in a grid pattern.

Thank you pointing out the obvious.

--cop tries to arrest someone
--person resists arrest
--others start to crowd around and yell
--more start to gather, some now advancing on the officer in a confrontation manner
--officer draws his gun

Taking a step back, does this seem like an unusual, ego-fueled reaction by the police that was woefully excessive? Perhaps there can be a debate about the finer points of how it could have been handled, but to categorize this as brutality or a clearly defined example of excessive force seems a bit presumptuous.

-- Cop acts like a lunatic, including doing a completely unnecessary barrel roll and pulling out his firearm without provocation.

Here's about how this went:

Saw posts on facebook about how someone called the cops for there being too many black people at a pool party. Thought "well shit, this again" (this being people being racist and cops being extra racist).

Then saw posts describing it as a pool in a private community that some yahoo started selling $15 tickets on twitter to an unauthorized pool party (at which they had even hired a DJ)...so it is not really ridiculous for the cops to come and drive away a mob of teens who really aren't supposed to be there. Had an incident like that here not too long ago...somebody basically set up an entire unauthorized music festival at the beach...mini-riot ensued when the cops tried to kick them out, beach was left trashed. Thought "well shit, this again" (this being people using a legitimate police intervention, but withholding details and spinning it as aggressive racism to rile people up and get viral shares).

Then I watched the actual video. Thought "well shit, this again" (this being an asshole cop doing a barrel roll and getting a raging hardon at being able to beat on a bunch of black kids).

edit: actually, he probably got a raging hardon from tackling and feeling up a preteen girl.

New stupid.

What exactly are you contesting? Gave my interpretation of what P said. Is P. an ass too, for thinking he doesn't live on a block? Or are you really going to insist that everyone lives on a block because you can be a trapeezing asshole and say that everyone lives on a block if you use a meaningless-enough definition?

Is your hammer perfect rectangularity? Fuckface.

Who gives a fuck

An area of land. Yeah that's what block means.
