    How else should one describe the decision ?[/QUOTE]

    Were you talking about Derec, or laughing dog?

    So? Police officers often lie as well when there is police brutality.[/QUOTE]

    It's a little harder to breath through my N95 mask when I'm walking from the car to the grocery store on a hot humid day with bad air quality. I should probably get some thinner masks. I still think...

    Trump won't be content until he makes the US the pariah of the world. It's where he's always felt most comfortable.
  8. Thanks, you're correct of course. Somehow I'm...

    So the answer is no. But on the sunny side of things with the world focusing on the problem we might finally discover a technique that leads to a cure for the common cold. Although that's unlikely...

    Found this on reddit (for what its worth)

    Apparently there is a vaccine for dogs against a coronavirus.[/QUOTE]

  10. Has a vaccine successfully been produced for any...

    Our flu vaccine is for the top three from the prior season. You can only get new strains. The next year the top three from last season. Rinse, lather, repeat.

    I would expect that, like flu, there...
  11. Except that although influenza is an RNA virus,...

    If there's no vaccine then masks will probably become permanent.[/QUOTE]

    I doubt it. But flu viruses have this nasty habit of mutating. This novel Chinese virus is no exception.[/QUOTE]

  12. And besides that the officers were on night duty...

    Not a good thing to do, but understandable in the heat of the moment when the bad guy punches you and shoots a taser at your head.

    Police officers are still people with emotions. They are not...
  13. When was the last time that happened? Besides...

    a so-called "nonleathal" weapon is only nonleathal in the hands of a trained professional. nonleathal does not mean "not at all dangerous to the safety of others".

    So how many of these media frenzy cases involve folks who didn’t resist? Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.[/QUOTE]

    From a discussion elsewhere they carry the two-shot version.

    And police tasers can have ranges up to 35 feet. Civilian units are limited to 15 feet.[/QUOTE]

  16. Apparently you're not half as progressive as...

    Since white people get shot by police too, I call BS.
    Where race comes into it is that when a white guy gets shot by police at a fast food restaurant, other white people don't immediately torch it...

    Why not? Tasers incapacitate (which would allow the perp to steal the gun as well) and they can be deadly in some circumstances.[/QUOTE]

    Inanely callous and insensitive remarks from the annals of history:
