Not sure the best way to stop this, but sometimes there is an actual, real downside to gun ownership.

Neglient father, senseless tragedy but can we please stop correlating deaths with numbers of days when we have a population of well over 300 million people. Oh wow, when a population increases, the raw amount of people dying from X increases. Fucking morons.

On the "actually abusive cops" topic again

Motorcyclist ended up getting $180k (from the taxpayers of course) just recently, for excessive force. Cop got promoted a few weeks later.

The officer's testimony is great. All sorts of bullshit excuses. http://registerguard.com/rg/news/local/33955359-75/federal-jury-rules-in-favor-of-speeding-motorcyclist-against-oregon-state-police-trooper.html.csp

State police, in a statement released Thursday night, said the agency “is disappointed with the (trial) outcome and feels the actions of our troopers clearly did not violate established procedures or tactics. In situations like these, officers have milliseconds to make what may be life-or-death decisions and those officers should be shielded from the liability of civil damages.”

 

 

The key piece of evidence in Wilkens’ case was a recording of the incident captured by an in-car video system in Edwards’ unmarked police vehicle. According to trial testimony, Edwards did not know the unmarked Chevrolet Camaro he was driving at the time was equipped with the video system.

 

 

Edwards acknowledged in his testimony that Wilkens had begun to comply with his commands when he landed the kick, but said he was unable to stop the kick because he “already had the muscles fired” in his right leg.

 

Edwards also said he accidentally “bumped” the back end of Wilkens’ motorcycle as a result of possible “brake fade” — a term used to describe the loss of braking power because of overheating.

Chicago police officer will sue estate of teen he fatally shot

POSTED 8:23 AM, JANUARY 28, 2016, BY WGN WEB DESK, UPDATED AT 08:28AM, JANUARY 28, 2016

CHICAGO — The police officer who shot and killed teenager Quintonio LeGrier on the day after Christmas will sue LeGrier’s estate.

Officer Robert Rialmo answered a domestic disturbance call in West Garfield Park and wound up shooting LeGrier and a neighbor, he says, because LeGrier attacked him.

Rialmo’s attorney Joel Brodsky confirmed for WGN-TV this morning that he’ll file a civil suit against LeGrier’s estate in a couple of weeks, citing emotional distress and assault.

LeGrier’s family says there was no justification for shooting 18-year-old LeGrier in the back four times.

Super classy move.

Hard to understand why this cop did this.

Darren Wilson would have a much better lawsuit against the estate of Michael Brown.

They may well be morons, but that's not really a logically valid response. Leaving aside the question of whether the increase in the number of deaths is commensurate with the increase in the relevant population, it doesn't follow that simply because population increases by say 5% that the number of deaths from Cause X will also increase by 5%. As a society we attempt, sometimes with success, to the reduce the risk of death from all sorts of causes.
