Re: More on the Stephon Clark Shooting
This is the DA's report. It is not an independent investigation. Rolling Stone has been known to do very fine investigative reporting. It is actually something they are known for.

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

Not a shooting but the victim is just as dead and killed by police. Read the whole thing. It is horrifying.

https://www.dallasnews.com/...final-minutes-tony-timpas-life

quote:
Tony Timpa wailed and pleaded for help more than 30 times as Dallas police officers pinned his shoulders, knees and neck to the ground.
“You’re gonna kill me! You’re gonna kill me! You’re gonna kill me!”
After Timpa fell unconscious, the officers who had him in handcuffs assumed he was asleep and didn’t confirm that he was breathing or feel for a pulse.
As precious minutes passed, the officers laughed and joked about waking Timpa up for school and making him waffles for breakfast.
Body camera footage obtained Tuesday by The Dallas Morning News shows first responders waited at least four minutes after Timpa became unresponsive to begin CPR. His nose was buried in the grass while officers claimed to hear him snoring — apparently unaware that the unarmed man was drawing his last breaths.
[…]
He had already been handcuffed by a private security guard before police arrived. He never threatens to hurt or kill the police.
The footage also shows the officers mocking Timpa as he struggled to live. Shortly after one officer ridicules Timpa’s repeated cries for help, an officer notes that he appears to be “out cold.”
They joke that he’s merely asleep and try to wake him: “It’s time for school. Wake up!”
One officer mimics a teen saying: “I don’t want to go to school! Five more minutes, Mom!”
They joke about buying him new shoes for the first day of school and making him a special breakfast, laughing loudly.

Re: Dayton Shooting
5.56 is not much of a hunting round other than for varmints. Yes, people do use it for deer, but they are not ethical hunters. That being said by legislation in most states in the USA, hunting rifles can not hold more than five rounds.
Also, the Rem 700 is a bolt action rifle. Though the round is not more deadly because of the gun, the particular gun can make it more destructive.

Re: Dayton Shooting
That does not mitigate the destructive power on humans of the round. How fast can someone kill with a bolt action with 5 rounds vs semi auto with 100 rounds. I think the point Percy made has merit. You seem to want to be a little pedantic and are getting lost in the weeds.

Re: Dayton Shooting
It is amazing how the ammosexuals do not ever quote the full 2nd amendment.
quote:
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

This too can be amended.

Re: Dayton Shooting
Agreed. I should have put that into my post. Ammosexuals some how completely disregard the first two clauses that dictate the extent of the right that shall not be infringed.
