  1. I see things the opposite. In today's social climate I don't think there's any way that 12 people could agree on an acquittal that quickly considering the ramifications. My guess is manslaughter, but who knows. I've seen some cops convicted of murder recently where it certainly wasn't the correct charge based on the law.
  2. I spent about 15 minutes replying to this and then my response disappeared so... Yes, it happened the way TVC says it did. I went on approximately 40-50 ridealongs over 5 or 6 years with him, and I saw over and over that the police weren't out to bust anybody's balls, and cut breaks whenever they could. Pretty much every tense situation I ever witnessed between police and civilians was escalated by the civilian.
  3. Are his players going with him? It was kinda fun having HF relevant for a couple of years.
  4. Yes, they do. But he asked how one takes a moderate look at the constitution. In general with a lot more common sense and a literal interpretation, whereas justices with strong ideological leanings either direction tend to come up with some pretty creative interpretations that benefit their party and political beliefs. As for your "all levels" comment, it's always been amazing to me how some no-name biased circuit judge from Buttcrack, Oregon can make a ruling on some national policy and it shuts the whole thing down.
  5. They don't politicize their interpretation of it in an effort to push rulings as far left or right as possible. And yes, there is plenty of interpretation to be had, which is why the supreme court has been making constitutional rulings since the 19th century. "As the final arbiter of the law, the Court is charged with ensuring the American people the promise of equal justice under law and thereby, also functions as guardian and interpreter of the Constitution."
  6. yeah, it's pretty terrifying. IMO, in a perfect world the entire supreme court would be filled with moderates. our country is split fairly close to 50/50 conservative/liberal. I want a supreme court that will take EVERYONE into account when making their decisions, not just their political ideologies. that said, as long as the left basically has total control, I definitely want a conservative court. It's insane to think that the left has narrow margins in the house, there's a tie in the senate, and they won the presidency by a narrow margin, but now they can alter the makeup of the supreme
  7. Never tried it. I just buy DJ’s now. Far prefer it to zummos
  8. We use Texjoy BBQ seasoning. Clean the crabs well, coat them with texjoy, fill the cavity with garlic butter. Put on the grill cavity side up and cook for about 8 min, then once the butter has cooked in flip and let them go 2-3 more minutes. Absolutely delicious, and simple to do. Kinda reminds me of Sartin’s as well
  9. We've been barbecuing blue crabs a lot lately. I wish you could post pics on here like back in the old days. You only have to see a pic to understand how good they are. I've been blackening speckled trout a lot as well.
  10. I miss that restaurant. Was only about a 10 min drive from my house. I liked their EJ special (or something like that) with two cheese stuffed boudain balls covered in chicken and sausage gumbo. Their boudain was the best that I've had around here.
  11. https://www.12newsnow.com/article/news/nation-world/prosecutors-no-charges-officer-jan-6-capitol-riot-shooting/507-828fbbcc-0a16-4d33-a1a2-4eeb3d6caed4 Still doesn't identify the officer, but has some info.
  12. we all already knew this. i've been telling people for a year that it's possible for something to be bad, but for the media to still try and make it seem worse than it is for political or financial gain.
  13. Incredible season for HH and coach McDermand!
  14. 2-0 final. Huffman fought hard and had a really good run of play the last 20 minutes or so. Drew a foul that could’ve easily been a PK, but was ruled to be just outside the box
  15. Gulf in class showing. Boerne is definitely the class of 4A. Huffman was unlucky in the first half, hitting the crossbar with a long range shot. It went down off the bar, and I thought it went across the line and then spun out, but no goal was given.
  16. Absolutely agree. The thing about it is when most people screw up at their job, there aren't any consequences. The person at Sonic put mustard on my burger, they give me a new burger. The cashier accidently rang my new shoes up twice, she can take one of them off the receipt. There aren't any do-overs when you fire a bullet, whether you're justified or not, or if it was a complete accident as it was in this case.
  17. A criminal made an incredibly stupid decision, and an officer made an incredibly stupid mistake. Had Wright simply followed orders none of this would've happened, but the officer still screwed up on a monumental scale. One of the points I used to try to make when we could still have conversations about these things without being called racist anytime you side with the police is this: when you resist arrest or fight the police, you put them in a situation where they're more likely to have to make a split decision, and thus in a situation where they're more likely to make a mistake. It's a v
  18. Who’s ranting? I know you don’t trust the vaccine. Good for you. I’m just making a point.
  19. that's the whole point, though. they're occurring at a lower rate among the vaccinated than they do with birth control users. Are you anti-birth control now? We're talking about an average of 1 in 1,100,000 recently vaccinated people developing these clots (all 6 cases being women, and likely also birth control users), 1 in 6,800,000 dying from it. 2 out of 100 who contract covid die from it, and you think all of the measures to combat covid are stupid. go figure.
  20. 6 people out of 6.8 million got blood clots. Women taking oral birth control develop these rare blood clots at a much higher rate. These clots on average occur in 3 to 5 people per million per year. I'm not really sure what the concern is here.
  21. I'm hoping their need to appear to "handle it better than the republicans" will keep them working on eliminating it. But I'd say there's a decent chance you're right.
  22. Not sure. The last I saw the original folks in the original study were still not getting sick. Even if it only lasts 6 months that will go a long way towards ending the pandemic.
