    Blah Blah Blah, this is it for football. It's all over with. This is the end. Ya'll sound like CNN. We have to get back to normal. What are we going to do live in a bubble from here on out. I am sure this will all go away in November, if you know what I mean.

    Ahmaud Arbery Shooting

    Partnership does not mean turning law enforcement authority to civilians. I am not sure where you drew that conclusion from that general community policing statement. In fact most community policing rules is for citizens to not be armed and to not take action except to be the eyes and ears of the cops. It is not and never has been... call the neighbor and let him take care if it. If you are a police officer, I would like to know what your experience is that led you to that conclusion. As far as me being part of the problem, I am in my 37th year as a police officer. I have been involved in 5 shooting incidents. I have been treated at the hospital about 10 times line of duty injuries including having my eyebrow glued back together in two places after being assaulted with a pipe during an arrest. I was chosen to be one of the first federally funded community policing officers in the nation in the mid 1990s when Clinton signed the community policing bill into law. I spent 10 years on SWAT with 8 a team leader. I have been declared an expert in gangs by a judge in a trial. I spent 3 years in detectives and 3 years in command of the gang unit. I have been to over 150 Homicide scenes and was the supervisor in charge of several of them. I have testified in front of a grand jury in an officer involved fatal shooting. I currently teach the Penal Code, arrest-search and seizure (Constitution Law) and firearms at the police academy. I have over 50 commendations including one from the US Marshal’s Service for helping to capture an escaped prisoner from CA who was about to shoot a deputy marshal and a few medals. i could go an but if you think I am soft on criminals and am part of the problem.......

    Ahmaud Arbery Shooting

    From what I read about stop and frisk, it was completely legal. Officers can detain someone for reasonable suspicion. It has to be linked to a specific crime. That came from SCOTUS in Terry v. Ohio. Detectives McFadden saw what he thought was 4 guys casing a store in order to rob it. They took turns walking back and forth, looked into the store to see how many customers, etc. When they all started walking toward the store together, McFadden moved in thinking it was about to happen. He pushed the guys against the wall and patted them down and I think 3 had guns. Now such a contract is called a Terry stop or a Terry frisk it is still the standard to justify a detention by law enforcement. All that NYPD did was tell the patrol officers to get off their butts, out of their patrol cars and start stopping suspicious people. They did. The problem with this and such programs is the belief by some police administrations to use traffic stops and Terry stops as a measure of success or performance. That is a folly in my opinion. When you start rewarding officers for contacts, they may start stretching the reason for the contact. Stop and frisk is what cops get paid to do. I don’t think there should be any reward at al for doing your job however. The laziest cop who stops no one, might all of a sudden find hundreds of “criminals” in his midst if he thinks it might get him that job in detectives and off of patrol. Officers should be commended for the quality of their cases, not quantity. in my opinion

    Last I heard it was a Nederland N on the 50 NEDERLAND on one end zone BULLDOGS on the other end zone and a Bulldog paw prints on the 25, red zone line would be black and gold, the green turf would be like how Vidor’s is and alternate the different color shades of green.

    I would vote for him against anyone. I think he could play really well among the fringe voters and his record is incredible. Just an amazing individual. I’m not sure he could make the jump now but I would love it if he could. Really hoped he would run Cornyn because I think he would have been a star in the senate. I will say that if any of you have access to HBO, VP Pence and Sen. Rubio (who I’ve always been a fan of as well) had back to back interviews in the most recent Axios episode and it’s worth watching. I thought both were very impressive.

    Another tidbit of info. Colorado has admitted to miscounting their Covid deaths. Number dropped from 1,150 to 858. That’s a 23.6% drop. Perhaps our nations death toll is not nearly what we’re being told.

    The strange thing is the number of teenagers who have even been seriously affected by covid is close to zero. I’m not sure any have died. They likely have a greater risk of dying playing football than dying from covid. They certainly have a greater risk dying driving to practice than they do of dying from covid. And by the fall it is likely that much of the herd immunity we need to achieve will have happened. We need to protect the elderly (who are almost exclusively the only ones who need protecting), but we can do so without imprisoning an entire generation of children.

    Ahmaud Arbery Shooting

    I agree completely on video. I have intervened when I have seen officers trying to drop someone from making a video. The only issue is if the person gets too far into a scene. When a person is so close as to interfere with an officer, that isn’t legal but not because of the video. I think it was earlier in this thread or maybe even another forum but I said that the video guy was reported to have take post in the attempted apprehension of Arbery. It was not from taking video. The three men were reported to have been all together in trying to arrest Arbery. Of course that is just from reports that I read which isn’t evidence In what GA calls immediate knowledge, I think Texas calls “in his presence”. Texas law says an arrest can be made if within his presence or view. Obviously within view is to actually witness the crime but I think in his presence means close enough to know it is happening right now. Like a person hears glass break and turns a corner and sees a man standing next to a broken window and a hammer is on the ground. The crime wasn’t within view but it was within the person’s “presence”. I think that the GA law is similar. Immediate knowledge means you are close enough to know that a crime has been committed. If aneighbor calls you 5 minutes later about a possible crime, is that immediate? I think not but I don’t feel like looking up GA case law.

    Ahmaud Arbery Shooting

    I hardly ever speak of experience. Anyone is allowed to have an opinion. When someone tells me that I don’t understand community policing because of something read in the internet, sometimes it seems appropriate. I can’t be losing a debate because I am not in one. I am merely pointing out usual police policies and responses. A debate might be if those policies or practices are good. I haven’t disengaged from anything. Here is what matters in this case.... Did the two men arrested witness a felony? If so they can make a citizen arrest under GA law. I have read the GA law and I saw nothing that justifies a detention by a civilian in order to question a person that was in a suspicious circumstance, particularly with firearms. The police can, civilians can’t Arbery’s past history has no bearing on the case. A video of him arguing with cops two years earlier doesn’t justify deadly force or a detention Him in the area or in that house under construction previoy doesn’t matter. Having a cop text for the neighbors to call the retired cop doesn’t matter. Again, did they witness s felony? If not, they can make no citizen arrest. The rest is just fluff to distract by one side or the other. Does GA law allow for a civilian to draw a weapon on an apparently unarmed person to make an arrest, just in case? The local DAs that knew the suspect or his family, said they saw no case. The state police were called in and it took about 45 seconds to say, what the heck was the DA thinking. I think this will go to trial. I think the guys may get off because of the way the law reads. In Texas as an example of self defense, if self defense is brought up in a trial, the state has to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that self defense was not lawful in that circumstance. In other words, the defendant doesn’t have to prove that he had the right of self defense, the DA has to prove that he didn’t. So a jury could feel 80% likely that murder was committed but that isn’t beyond a reasonable doubt. Texas law on a defense to prosecution says that if any reasonable count exists, a person must be acquitted. Is GA the same? It is probably similar.

    I just noticed that you're pretty bullish on Jasper this year. Are you feeling okay? We're going to be very young this year, but the schedule is tough and the subvarsity teams have been really good. The Dawgs will be better prepared for the playoffs than in years past, even if the record doesn't indicate it...but getting to the third round would be a good start for this group. I would expect more in 2021 and 2022.

    This is a hard topic to read. Even worse for those who have lived thru all the hate. More of the media convincing society we are at war with each other. Divide and conquer. Black vs white. Republicans vs Democrats. Christians vs non believers. Controversy sells. But the truth of the matter is mistakes were made by all involved. I thought we were moving passed this type of unnecessary loss of life. I dont care what he may have stole, or planned to steal. Life is a valuable commodity that should not have been wasted.

    Aaaaahhhh the acute nostalgia for mid to late 80's Jasper Bulldog football (Eugene was a little earlier). I was a freshman in '87 and we had the glorious honor (was actually brutal for us freshman DAWGS) of being live football dummies for the varsity about once a week. Ole Ray Adams had a secondary partner who was not to shabby himself by the name of (I going to refer to him by his present day name) DR. Michael Mcfarland. Then the beast looming in the middle of the field was a fella named Curtis Hafford. Those two went on to play for the Baylor Bears with both contributing a lot to their program.

    Aubery tried to out maneuver the two trying vigilantes trying to apprehend him by passing by on the right side of the truck, which was in the middle of the road. But the son with the shotgun blocked him. So he came back to the left and pass by that way. That does not sound aggressive to me on the part of the jogger. He is just trying to go about his way. When he was blocked on the left side he was caught in a no win situation. He had two armed white men, who are obviously hunting him down. They are trying to apprehend him. Maybe their motives are for good. Maybe they are not. Contrary to cardinal whatever says not all southern white men are good, balanced citizens. A whole lot of murder and mayhem has been perpetrated against black people in the South. Lynchings, bombings, rapes, castrations just about every heinous act you can think of. Much of it is recorded in history. A lot of it has been covered over. So he comes around on the left side he has a decision to make. Does he surrender to these armed men? Who knows what their intentions are? They are not dressed like law enforcement because they are not law enforcement. He knows he has not done anything worthy of having guns drawn on him. For all he knows he is fighting for his life. So he decides to fight. If those two clowns had not tried to take the law into their on hands vigilante style none of that would have happened.
