re: Marines who went through Parris Island in the Vietnam Era- question - Obtuse1
[quote]The drill sargent uses racial slurs and whatnot?[/quote] I heard that kind of shite in the 80s, maybe not quite as raw but it was there. Keep in mind Ermey was actually a DI during the Vietnam era and got his start in film as a technical advisor. He was supposed to be a technical advis...

re: LSP Trooper George Baker has died after being injured in the line of duty - Obtuse1
[quote]It’ll be interesting. He probably wouldn’t have been charged at all if he hadn’t ran at the end of the chase. And he got away...I guess that’s where the obstruction charge comes from. The driver was charged with possession and intent to distribute narcotics, so who knows what the driver got a...

re: Parents- do you make your kid wear a bike helmet? - Obtuse1
I have been riding semi-seriously for 40 years now and while I didn't wear a helmet until I was about 22 (only leather helmets and skid lids existed then) I wear a helmet any time I am outside the neighborhood. I wouldn't think of letting a kid (even a teenager) ride on the street without a helmet....

re: Coronavirus ruined more lives than people died from it #SCAM - Obtuse1
[quote]All hospitals have to do is hook someone to a ventilator for 10 minutes and they get a $35,000-$40,000 payday.[/quote] You are full of shite if you are suggesting they are doing that on purpose except in some rare rouge hospital. No Dr is venting patients now except as a last resort. If 5...

re: LSP Trooper George Baker has died after being injured in the line of duty - Obtuse1
[quote]Yep. It’s felony murder, and this is basically a textbook scenario.[/quote] Textbook for the driver but less textbook for the passenger. Need more facts as to what the predicate felony or felonies are. You have to show intent to commit the predicate felony. The driver you could get unde...
