This is why...
I started inserting tinfoil into my undershirt!! Ha, take that copper.
Seriously folks, if one wants to circumvent non-lethal devices there are many ways. Such devices really only work on the sheep.
The truly bad criminal element love such gimmicks. It gives them an opportunity to use lethal force against an officer who has distracted himself with less than lethal force.
Any force justified should be lethal force. I don't care that officers have to respond with violence.
The problem is they respond to the most paltry of infractions now with more force than is needed. So rather than use his wits this cop decided to shoot first and ask questions later. All of which is under the guise of "officer safety".
Again if force is justified, any force applied should be treated as lethal from the onset of the altercation. If you don't want to get shot dead, don't break the law. But likewise, if someone gets shot and dies because he was too drunk to unlock his OWN house, and too drunk to respond to an officer*, well that cop clearly has some problems.
*This event happened in the city where I live. Guy came home early one AM from partying. His neighbor reported a prowler. As this guy was trying to get into his own house a cop tasered this fellow "because he was not responding to an order". He eventually was found guilty of obstruction of justice of some such BS.
I'm still catching up...
I had let my X-Files viewing fall by the wayside about three years into the series. Graduating, getting a job and all that.
I had just started catching up again when "they" yanked the rug out from under tv-links.co.uk. Methinks there is a worldwide government conspiracy.
Trust no one...
After reading Geoff Gale's link I decided I would just lay down and die. Then I realized that a cremation or funeral would be less green than going on living.
Seriously people. Those who preach this drivel, are you just that bored?
Albert and Kevin are on the right track...
While I have not bought a PS2 in a few years, I do own 9 of them. And it was all because of one game; Socom. Then it's various sequels.
The games (or in Nintendo's case, now the novel controller system) are what drive the market for console purchases.
I hate M$, and said I wouldn't buy the 360, well I saw Saint's Row and picked up the 360.
I will be purchasing a Wii, whenever I can find one. But it's a big no to the PS3, I just haven't seen any titles that interest me.
