It took me my first two years as a lawyer to figure that out.

On the plus side, by that point you'd earned enough to buy a couple of Maybachs to cheer yourself up.

This thread has moved past my limited trolling skills but the 200k comment spoke loud and clear that someone's up to late using mom's laptop to post on the interwebz.

My initial thought was this: *plink* Excuse me, I believe you dropped something

200k is still small timer status. Everyone knows SF minimum is 250k.

I tried to actually provide facts.  You confused my comments which were about custodial interrogation versus an interview.  Also the deprivation of food, drink, water etc. has be used to assert a confession under duress. 

I'm out, you're clueless.  I've argued these cases and won every time.


This is fantastic. I love this post so much.

I wonder if we will ever be graced with his legal presence again?

I sure hope so. I really want more true believer leftists, preferably trust fund baby philosophy majors.

I believe the standard of SF fallback job @250k/yr was established during the recession era, cira 2010. Adjusted for current standards, the SF fallback job salary is 317k/yr.

23 year veteran of the force, turned review board investigator, fired for having a "clear bias against police" after finding civilian shootings unjustified and refusing to change his reports.

^Holy fuck, nice find.

Davis’s termination came less than two weeks after top IPRA officials, evaluating Davis’s job performance, accused him of “a clear bias against the police” and called him “the only supervisor at IPRA who resists making requested changes as directed by management in order to reflect the correct finding with respect to OIS,” as officer-involved shootings are known in the agency.

That's a pretty brazen statement he won't falsify his reports so he's getting fired.

Dude, they are only seeking to eliminate bias. He probably didn't even include trigger warnings. Stop promoting cop-rape culture.

They did find 1 shooting unjustified out of 400 shootings that were reviewed.

Isn't that good enough?

I pulled up at a traffic light tonight to make a left hand turn to find police with their weapons drawn. Sure wasn't a great feeling sitting directly in line behind the car they were pointing at.

What I don't get is why when you're sitting in a car and the cops have their guns drawn and pointing at you, and they tell you to do x, you do !x. There were five or six teenage or 20 somethings crammed into a 20+ year old civic, and the driver opened the door and stuck her head out and was yelling at the cops. I have to be honest, regardless of whether the cops are right or wrong, I sure wouldn't be making sudden moves or yelling, or opening the car door when they yell at you to stay in the vehicle.

The arrest of Sandra Bland. This case will grow.

All of the action is in the first 15 minutes.

To the lawyers: I'm asking an opinion. If she was unlawfully arrested and she did in fact commit suicide 3 days later, is there any way to assign culpability for her suicide on the Police?
