7. Re: I watched more DOOM videos (not all of them [TL;DW]), with a guy's commentaries, from YouTube... Jul 2, 2017, 20:31 Wowbagger_TIP
 
I was having some bad lag issues, making it pretty hard to play. My ping showed around 70 when I would check, but seemed to be spiking a lot or something.

The game seems ok, but hard to evaluate it if I can't get a decent connection.

In over 25 years, I've had maybe half a dozen tickets as well. I drove my truck for 3 years with an expired registration sticker (had the new stickers in the truck, but never put them on) and never got pulled over for it. Can't imagine what it would be like getting pulled over constantly like Castile had been. That's gotta be maddening.

Getting killed for no reason, right in front of your family, is just unbelievably tragic, and this kind of thing needs to stop. Just letting cops shoot people anytime they're scared is insane. The job is scary, that's what they tell us and why they expect us to respect them for it. But if that's the case, then it shouldn't be an excuse for shooting people.

Maybe if they actually had sales on things that I want, I would participate. Judging from the previous sales, this will be a tedious waste of time.

Is anyone going to succeed by doing nothing but complaining about inequities. Nope. But that doesn't change the fact there are inequities. Has progress been made? Sure. Is there a lot more to do? You bet.

Yes, there are bad cops. Yes, some people are crooks. There is a lot more grey than there is black and white. All we can do is try to make things better as best we can. The more people helping to make it better, the faster it will happen.

Good post.
True, no one could find fault with that statement.

Nothing wrong with it indeed, but no clue what he's suggesting either. "Not everything is black and white, everyone should help to make things better"

I can see why people dig it, but imo it's also a classic conversation stopper. People end up just nodding in agreement while no real ideas were shared in the end.

Oh wow, I actually agree with Quinn on this!

It isn't ridiculous and it is race-baiting if that stat you pulled is claimed to be so because of racism toward blacks. Crime among blacks is way higher than among whites, per capita (and lots of the shootings are by black cops btw). People that say "More unarmed blacks are shot, ergo racism" are people I have a big problem with. Go watch the Louis Theroux episode in Philly.

The numbers I cited were for unarmed blacks vs whites. They are still 5 times more likely to be shot than a white person. Simple fact. There's no way that racism isn't a major factor in that.

Look at the Philando Castile case. It's sick how many people still believe his death was racially motivated. Even that idiot from that Late Night show proclaimed it was so. Disgusting. Just one Youtube search and you have the entire video and/or audio of the situation. That officer was 20 times more in distress than Diamond, that crazy gf of his that calmly filmed her bf dying. Sorry. My point is that blacks are too often victimized. There's nooothing wrong with the black culture in America. 'Tis allll them powerful whities fault.

Right, you think that cop would have completely lost his shit like that if it was a white guy he'd pulled over with his girlfriend and kid in the car with him? No, he panicked because he's already pre-judging the guy based on his race. He even tried to justify it by saying the guy smelled like weed, and therefore must have smoked weed in front of the kid, so he was likely to be willing to murder a cop. WTF?!

Not everything is racism, but this stuff sure is.

It's easy for me to portray the problem I'm having with your assertions with a simple question: are you saying, without a doubt, that if this guy was white, was a suspect of a robbery and was reaching for his GUN while the officer explicitly told him not to... that this white guy wouldn't have been shot?

Second question for lols: if this black guy had his hands on the wheel and awaited further instructions after mentioning he had a gun, you think he would have been shot?

I bet it's easier to just shout racism instead of facing the answers to those questions. *That* is a problem for me.

The verdict was unanimous btw: the cop was found not guilty. 2 black people in the jury.

First, yes, I definitely think it would have gone differently if he were white. He hadn't done anything wrong, certainly nothing violent, and there was no reason to even suspect that he had.

He was reaching for his license because the officer had asked for it. I've watched the videos, and the whole thing happened so fast it was crazy. The cop totally panicked and shot him 7 fucking times for doing what he had just told him to do. Had it been a white guy, I don't think the officer would have been nearly as panicky.

The guy has absolutely no business being a cop, and Castile paid for the guy's incompetence with his life.

Your signature is so fucking ironic right now.

Do you have any experience as a cop? Any experience as a cop in that neighborhood? How did you know there was no reason to suspect that he had done something violent? It is literally on record that the cop suspected him of a robbery because the guy fitted the description.

You watched the video, so you agree that the cop was already given something which could've been his L&R. He was also terribly distraught afterwards, multiple times repeating "I told him not to fucking reach!". But you're not willing to give the cop your charity, do you? He shot a black guy, ergo racism. Ergo. Fucking. Racism. You have no clue. Maybe you'll respect how much officers have to be on edge more by watching this little video: https://youtu.be/G5pgZ0yq1-E

Again, I'm NOT saying there's no bad cops. I'm not saying there's no racism among cops. My problem is that everything these days is an act of racism whenever a fucking black dude is shot, from all the virtue-signaling extreme lefties (I'm center-left mind you). It's gone so far, that you people are becoming the peopel descriminating. Just some anecdotal evidence because why not:

While drinking with a couple of folks, the subject was about muslims. The general tone was that there was nothing wrong with Islam. I chimed in, explaining that there is but that it would heal some really grave wounds in the western countries of Europe if moderate muslims would start speaking up against terrorism in the name of Islam. I was shouted down as a racist by nearly the entire group. I'm not discussing that argument here so I'll ask you to refrain from shifting this to that subject. My point is that these people fucking know me well enough to know that I am not a racist, but still there was no boundary whatsoever for them to call me a racist right there and then (for the record: I invested a lot crowdfunding a documentary that will open up dialogue between muslims and non-muslims, because I believe dialogue is extremely important).

I wish our mentality would shift greatly to a point that the people shouting "RACISM" will not be taking for granted, but instead will be expected to come with solid evidence of that accusation. Today, that word gives way too much fucking power to anyone shouting it.

He was given an insurance card. This isn't news.

As for the Islam comment, yeah, there's a problem with it. But yes, moderate Muslims do speak up and are one of the main ways that the authorities get info on the radicals. So sure, you getting shouted down for that was dumb. It's not the same kind of thing as what we're talking about here though.

In todays news; 3 police officers accused of covering up a fatal police shooting, and it's on video.

They'll probably get a slap on the wrist at most. This is conspiracy and obstruction of justice in a homicide investigation, and any regular person would do real time for it. Cops almost never do. Our "justice" system is backwards as fuck.

From the beginning of that article:

"Officer Jason Van Dyke, who is white, shot 17-year-old Laquan McDonald 16 times, according to prosecutors."

I stopped reading after that. Don't get me wrong, they're probably guilty and terrible cops.. but this article is pushing this story forward for exactly the wrong reason. Race baiting.
Just imagine how anti-white you must be to write that. "Officer Tyrie Connor, who is black, ..."
Fucking double standards with these fucking assholes.

It's not race-baiting when there are legitimate racial issues involved. Unarmed black people are more than 5 times more likely to be shot by police than unarmed white people. Pretending that race doesn't matter is just ridiculous.

Dungeon Defenders 2, took everything that was awesome from DD1 and removed it. Added extra servings of grind...even to progress to the next level, and turned the great loot and upgrade system from the first one... into a pile of monotonous, restrictive shit.

RIP DD.

Yeah, that sums up my experience with it when I tried to jump back in a few months back. Fucking terrible. Hopefully someday another company will take the idea and do something fun with it again. Screw these guys.

Life sentence is more than fair for that POS. If anything it just shows why we need an efficient death penalty. To save tax dollars if nothing else.

After seeing all the people that have been railroaded onto death row, no thanks. Our legal system is far too fucked up for that. Should be abolished entirely.

As some areas of the state already resemble open sewers (can you even imagine a "park" that features open urinals and latrines? If not--go to CA if that's your cup of "tea")), how can you blame them? Tremendous taxes paid to live in a sewer? No thanks...;)
