re: Arkansas cop in trouble after tasering a man - tuptiger
Bingo. Wasn't a crime. Sounded like the "crime" was not allowing the girl to get her clothes. He was in the parking lot of an apartment complex it appears. He didn't go into the residence. Adrenaline junkie and paranoid Pete then tased the guy for walking away when he wasn't being detain...

re: Arkansas cop in trouble after tasering a man - tuptiger
[quote][quote]With things the way they are today [/quote]a pissed off black man walking off and being non compliant after being detained is a dangerous situation for the cop. [/quote] So, because there have been two high profile incidents involving black men and cops, this gives the cops a right ...

[quote]How bout instead of being cute and citing what someone told you was "your right" you be reasonable and not be a major douche[/quote] Like tasing someone without any verbal or physical threat isn't douchey. The guy should have given his name. He was wrong. However, at that point, whe...

[quote]You're a simple man. We get it. The idea that this should not be construed as a threat is laughable. Do you think the little count did it for any other reason than to offend/threaten black people? Maybe his dad should be punished.[/quote] He's a 20 year old college frat star. ...

re: 2nd Ole Miss student sentenced in noose on statue... - tuptiger
The only way they get away with this charge is because of "willful intimidation". Placing a noose on a statue, in my opinion, isn't "intimidating" all black people. The issue is whether or not black people felt "intimidated" and what would reasonably rise to the level of "intimidation". I...

[quote]So it has to be a verbal threat? Holding an item used to execute people isn't enough? What about the noose and throat slitting motion?[/quote] If we're still talking about the perception of force, I think a verbal threat with a noose in hand is sufficient grounds to justify the charge ...

[quote]So if they walked up a black student and held a noose in their face, is that a threat?[/quote] Firstly, a noose is not like a gun. Secondly, it would depend on whether or not the person said he was going to lynch the person he held the noose in front of. ...
