Waiting to see if there's any reaction to this :popcorn:

    One would hope that the people will wait for the conclusion of the investigation. One would also make sure that a few 'party favors' are on hand to repel boarders should it become necessary.

    ( The guy was sprayed with OC to subdue him. I liked the comment about OC spray being less lethal than a bullet!)

    Yes, I'm interested in this, but don't expect much will come from it.

    At least it sounds like they tried CPR and such this time. Not like NYers who stand by and watch them die!
    Wal Mart where the discriminating white trash shop.

    Could go either way.

    I do know that when all the nonsense was going down in Ferguson there was a "protest" in Hoover. The protest called for the protesters to stand in the middle of 459 and block north and southbound traffic. About 9 people showed up, stood on the shoulder for about an hour, a white state trooper rolled up on them asked if they were okay or did they need any help. When he was informed of what was going on, he asked them to please be careful and warned them that the drivers on 459 weren't particularly safe, wished them a good day and left. Everybody went home a few minutes later.

    Will play out about tha same as the Zimmerman not guilty verdict in Florida... Nothing will happen... An armed population protected by law to shoot looters is a non-starter for "riots".
    Kinda my thoughts as well, but these days you never know :uhm:

    I was referring to the case where NY police stood by and watched a man begging for his last breath suffocate and did nothing!!!

    :spittingcoffee: I've only been on 459 a few times, BUT, in those few times I determined that if any animal was seen trying to cross the road you could chalk it up to attempted suicide.
