He vomited it up at urgent care less than an hour later. He's been fine after that.

My dc swallowed coins and I had to do back slaps to dislodge them so he could breathe. It was about the scariest thing that ever happened to me. Many years later there are no long term effects and I don't really think about it. I do think sometimes that getting a scare like that can make you extra vigilant going forward therefore making something else bad happening less likely. Think about the positives that dc is ok rather than the worst case scenario. [ Reply | More ]

Of course I dont approve of cops shooting people when it is unjustified. When that happens, the cops should be prosecuted and the city should pay millions in damages. What should NOT happen is that people should not riot, loot, and blame racism (as opposed to incompetence). My purpose for posting the MANY examples of unarmed whites being shot by police is to refute the false claim by one poster here that "only blacks" get shot by cops when unarmed, the implication being that racism rather than incompetence, is at work. But to be clear, in Ferguson, I think the shooting of Michael Brown was 100 percent justified homicide, after Officer Wilson was brutally beaten [ Reply | More ]

From CBS News: Sharpton will lead a march in Garner’s name on Saturday on Staten Island and has vowed that unlike the protests seen in Missouri, his march will be peaceful. “We do not tolerate violence at marches because you cannot fight reckless violence by becoming that,” Sharpton said. “If it ever were to occur, we would stop it and would not tolerate it. There is a difference between thugs and activists. We’re activists. We’re not thugs and we will not harbor thugs.” On Wednesday, Sharpton joined Mayor Bill de Blasio, Police Commissioner Bill Bratton, Cardinal Timothy Dolan and other area religious leaders in a show of unity ahead of this weekend’s march.

[ - ] Am I the only person who believes that the Ferguson police officer's injury makes it more likely he acted improperly? We already know the eye injury occurred when the teen was struggling to get away when the officer was still inside the car. The officer got hurt and was angry and that's why he shot 6 times. It's so strange that people think a cop like that is a hero. 25 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

In fact, we don't know that the injury occured in the act of flight. You are being inappropriately and likely incorrectly presumptuous. You are being quite generous to a thug in suggesting he injured someone and it WASN'T malicious. [ Reply | More ]

Actually, I used very polite language, and you used language like "thug". But you just proved my point. You can walk up to someone and punch them and they don't get to shoot you when you walk away. Did you know that? Or do you think the next time you see 2 boys fighting, you should give the one you like a best a gun to kill the other guy? [ Reply | More ]

OR- I agree with you that he shouldn't have been shot, but the question is does existing legal standard regarding police action give the officer an out from being charged? [ Reply | More ]

OP: If you are saying will the cop get away with it because racists always believe that an unarmed African-American man is "life-threatening" after 4 bullets, then yes, I think that what happened with Trayvon Martin proves that once an African-American throws a punch, a non-African-American man is allowed to shoot him dead. If you are white and get killed, your family will likely get a settlement. http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2014/08/what-i-did-after-police-killed-my-son-110038_Page2.html#.U_XwUVZgt-M [ Reply | More ]

What? It's not clear self-defense! It "might" be self-defense but I don't think any experienced policeman has a doubt that this cop could have stopped shooting after 4 bullets. [ Reply | More ]

Shot 3 times in the arm and the 6'4" guy still keeps charging, final shot to head stops him. The head injury indicates the cop may have been impaired due to a concussion caused by Brown. Bottom line, don't wrestle a cop for his gun, fracture his skull and then charge him and expect not to get shot. [ Reply | More ]

Why do you make up facts that are objectively verifiable? You claim Wilson "drove himself to the hospital". This is wrong. CNN reported that Wilson "was taken to an area hospital" -- passive voice, meaning he did not take himself to the hospital. He was transported there. http://www.cnn.com/2014/08/11/us/missouri-ferguson-michael-brown-what-we-know/ [ Reply | More ]

I had to go abroad one summer to care for my mom who was sick. Was gone six weeks. Three weeks in my husband told me that he had gotten to know nanny better and found her attractive and thought he should not spend next three weeks with her. She was hitting on him (and he admitted he had not acted, but had flirted.). We fired her and hired new nanny. It was a rough period, but I was grateful that he talked to me about it and we grew closer. [ Reply | More ]

And yet another reason why monogamy is so unnatural. Why not just recognize sex as a basic human need and not something that a person has to have with only one person with the rest of their life? There are so many reasons why marriage is wonderful (and why DH and I have been married for 20 years. Though we have a great sex life with each other, monogamy isn't the reason we stay together. If he wants to have a fling with the nanny - but not marry her - and it makes him happy, let him have fun. His happiness makes me happy. And he feels the same about me and my other partners.
