[quote]As for my original post, names of citizens involved in these situations seem to be released w/out a fuss. When cops are involved, they tend to use the "we won't release their names for fear that they or their family will be in danger" excuse. I'm just curious why it doesn't work both ways. ...

Segregation? In my opinion things are as out of control and one sided now as they were during segregation. Eventually that issue was corrected and the pendulum obviously swung way in the other direction. Will another correction be made that will at least bring us back to the middle?...

I am through the first 3 episodes now. The pilot was tremendous and some of the best television I have watched. episode 2 slowed down a little and it really fell of in episode 3. I am going to keep watching to see if it can at least get close to where it was in the pilot again....

[quote]Everyone condones the shooting, but is nobody else disturbed by underlying presence of police? I don't think the officers did anything nefarious, it just seems weird that as long as they have some sort of reason (welfare check) to enter the property, they can kill your dog who is just doing ...

The story doesn't provide enough information to know what law(s) he broke. Perhaps he was humping someone else's driveway and he had his pants pulled down. Indecent exposure and trespassing would be two possible charges....

I haven't watched this movie in almost 30yrs. I wonder if it would hold up today if I decided to re-watch it.
Here is the song from the film that you old guys like me will have stuck in your head for hours if you listen.
