[ - ] just talked to my friend, a copy on Staten Island for 20 years, and someone whose policing I've always respected. Even in the bad old days when he was working Harlem subways at night, he showed good common sense, remarkable restraint, and never had to shoot or otherwise kill anybody. His take: Officer Pantaleone's arrest was 100 percent by the book, and he (my frien) himself would have done the same thing. Would have wrapped his arm around the guy's neck, and in fact has done it, and not stopped when the person said things like "I can't breathe." He said the police already showed restraint by not tazering the guy (they have been asked not to do this to obese people because it could give them heart failure). My take: we get the police force we allow. I don't in any way agree that five cops in no danger whatsever had to resort to this level of violence to put a man in cuffs, just becasue this was the easiest and quickest way to make it happen. But this behavior is clearly common, and allowed. That's why it would be more effective for us as a society to pressure elected officials and the NYPD to train cops to use this level of aggression only when there's a threat. We need to make our expectations of the police clear. Otherwise they will carry on doing what's easiest and best for them. 2 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Totally unnecessary. At 6 months start offering him purées daily. No need to start with rice cereal or wait days between foods. If baby is not having any issues eating at this point just start giving him purées of veggies and fruits and after he gets the hang of it you can just mash up whatever you're eating. At first dilute the foods so they're very smooth using breast milk or formula. [ Reply | More ]

She doesn't want a relationship with you, she knows you're not single. In fact if you had indicated you were single, she probably wouldn't have pursued you. She just wants to have fun, but probably she just wants to get ahead at the company. If you are her superior, she can make sure at first she gets ahead, and then if she's fired she can sue the company. Sounds like fun to me! [ Reply | More ]

DW set her up to find your true colors. Why do you think she pressed you so much. She was just trying to verify the report that the decoy hottie had already provided. DW has been stashing a bit aside each week and has a nice nest egg ready when it it time to leave, but she wants the majority of your assets. So you are not ready to stray this year.....you will be at some point. And DW will behind it all, as your mistakes as you play this game will pay off royally. Watch it my friend. [ Reply | More ]

It is his, Obama's, Holder's, Sharpton's, yours and everyone else's who say stupid shit like he didn't deserve to die, he was only selling loose cigs. He didn't get killed for breaking the law. He killed himself by working himself up into a cardiac arrest by resisting routine incarceration. You guys fomented hatred towards the police. You ought to be ashamed of yourself. Whether you like cops or not, reasonable adults understand that police have a job to do and that you have to comply with their instructions. That is the double edged sword of allowing criminality (it's just loose cigs, it's just shoplifting, it's just jumping over the turnstile) -- you will need brute force to deal with the idiots who can't figure out something better than crime.

Do you understand why Blacks fear cops? Without that context and perspective and empathy for the (horrific) Black experience with law enforcement from cuff to court, your argument is small minded. Knowing all of that, seeing him only trying to argue (and not physically resist) and hearing him say he can't breathe ELEVEN times would sway any logical person's opinion. This is a country that made the Boston bombers into heartthrobs and White serial killers into psychological studies but Black dead victims are ALWAYS just thugs. It's gross. [ Reply | More ]

First, "blacks" is not capitalized. Second, he resisted by swinging his arms around, away and up. The law specifically states that swinging arms about to avoid being handcuffed is resisting arrest. If cops have to stop arresting you everything you d say you can't breathe eleven times, who is not going to say that during an arrest? How about idiots just submit to the arrest, maybe not even argue because that's also not going to dissuade anybody once an arrest begins. Last, I don't see anyone who says this stupid guy was a thug. Just you. [ Reply | More ]

1. Blacks will be capitalized today. 2. I have seen countless videos of Whites doing way more than swinging their arms way up who miraculously make it out alive. Telling Blacks "if you would just comply all would end will" is false. Proof here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/09/25/sean-groubert-fired-arrested_n_5879694.html 3. You must not read UB much if you don't think "thug" is thrown out every time an unarmed Black man (or child) is murdered. It is part of a larger problem that automatically sees a Black person as a threat. 4. Neither of us will change our minds. [ Reply | More ]

blacks, blacks, blacks. Also, is it "Whites"? That guy was an idiot but he didn't shoot until the man went into the cab of the truck. Maybe he had bad experience with black arrests. After all, more cops are killed by black young men than by white young men. In any case, it is not systemic as he was fired. I've already changed my mind. I used to think like you. The world is so unfair to black people! But I realized that I was infantilizing black people. They can and should learn to accept their part in their failings and the fallouts of being violent and criminal. Only little children constantly whine about things not being fair. [ Reply | More ]
