    I shy from calling it a matter of youth for obvious reaons. This is probably best "heard" when done by someone in their thirties or so. I'm accustomed to hearing the kinds of comments which discount my thoughts because of my age.

    I don't know what kind of thread, heart. Just looked like my statements derailed the thread and I thought to address the diverging comments elsewhere.

    I don't have an interest in starting a thread at the moment but would address comments regarding my misplaced posts.

    A comment on the poverty/violence correlation. Is it clear which is the causal factor?

    There is a tremendous amount of "hidden" violence among the affluent.

    Perhaps it is the adoption of an attitude of "me first" which is behind violence?

    Spoke to another cop, my neighbor a 16 year vet of the NYPD, another vote for "how the fuck do you confuse a taser with a pistol". That and people who are afraid of the people they are supposed to be policing shouldn't be cops in an ideal world.

    More anecdotal "evidence". Hooray!
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    I'm not going to Oakland to interview that cop. Sorry to disappoint you. You see, that's information that would actually be useful.

    Apparently he didn't think so, as he quit, so he could plead the 5th rather than give a statement.

    A smart move on his part.

    Go ahead and interview every other cop on the planet. That still won't tell us what was going on in the head of the shooter.

    Maybe he quit because he was devastated about accidentally shooting a guy.

    The BART police officer who shot an unarmed man to death on a station platform early on New Year's Day quit the force Wednesday, avoiding an interview with police internal affairs investigators trying to get to the bottom of an incident that has prompted broad outrage.
    If he cared so much why not help the investigation? He was going to have to give a statement or be fired so he quit. Real remorseful.
