    I don't see anything wrong there. Do you have a style preference I don't use? Every Ubuntu user I've ever known personally describes it that way, ffs. The phrase means to boot from the DVD instead of the hard drive, not "to boot from a DVD to your computer". Have you really never used or made a bootable disk/flash drive? :eek:

    I made a bootable DVD to try out Ubuntu. However, every time I try to boot to it, the system goes to Windoze as if there was no DVD in the drive. WTF? :confused:

    Looks like the ACLU are adding their voice to the conversation. Which does bring up the question: Brailsford cannot be tried again for murder in AZ because of "double jeopardy". But could the Feds charge him with violation of Shaver's civil liberties? https://www.aclu.org/blog/criminal-law-reform/reforming-police-practices/youre-fucked-acquittal-officer-brailsford-and#comments-top

    He apparently was showing two other people he met at the hotel his pesticide gun. Maybe the hotel room was dark and he could see more clearly closer to the window and he didn't want to aim it at the other people in his room so he aimed it out the window? Since the pesticide gun was used to kill birds that get in grocery stores, maybe he was aiming it at a bird outside? He was on the 5th floor and presumably pointing it out straight, not down toward people. If the state is open carry, and hunters who kill quail and doves regularly pack hotel rooms in Mesa Arizona with rifles to the point that hotels give their hunting guests rags to clean their rifles, I would think it would be unusual for people in that area to get upset with seeing a gun unless that gun was actually pointed at people on the ground. I don't think this was the case here and i don't think police even checked before running into the hotel to see if he was still pointing a gun out the window. My gut says by the time cops got to the hotel, Shaver had finished showing his guests his pesticide gun and had put it away. This whole case is ridiculous and horrifying.

    Yes, i completely agree. Too many opportunities for videos to be "edited" or otherwise withheld from evidence if not streamed live to a public archive site.

    ^^^This. (+ rep). That has been my belief all along. Where does the "innocent until proven guilty" even come in here? Pointing a gun out the window in an open carry state is not the same thing as shooting it or pointing it at people. Did the police even look from the outside first to see if he was still pointing a gun out the window when they got there? My gut says they didn't.

    Bad example. Saudis are tools of the West, for one. Second, the Saudi royal family is a clusterfuck of factions and clans for complex historical reasons as well as influence of Westerners.

    Black Lives Matter Supporters Call Attention to Graphic Video of Arizona Shooting "Consider that Shaver might well be alive if only the Mesa police department had long ago adopted reforms of the sort that Black Lives Matter suggests." Black Lives Matter activists were among those who used social media on Friday and Saturday to call attention to the case of Daniel Shaver, a 26-year-old man who was shot to death by a police officer in Mesa, Arizona in January 2016. A disturbing, graphic video of the shooting was released shortly after the officer who killed Shaver, who was white, was acquitted of second-degree murder. The video shows Shaver following the officer's instructions to crawl toward him and begging him not to shoot.

    Yeah, but every generation says that about the youth (and has for as long as there have been people). It's fun to pick on them and blame them for all the bad things tho, isn't it? :D

    @Anti Federalist especially Check it out-Not even neocon rag National Review is defending the cops on this one: http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/454504/police-murder-daniel-shaver If you have the stomach for it, I want you to watch one of the most outrageous and infuriating videos I’ve ever seen. It shows the police shooting of Daniel Shaver in Mesa, Arizona. He was crawling on his hands and knees, crying, and begging police not to shoot him. An officer shot him anyway: The background is simple. Shaver was a traveling pest control worker. He was in his hotel room (a La Quinta Inn) showing off to guests a pellet gun he used for work. Police responded to a 911 call claiming that a man was pointing a rifle out a window. When police arrived, Shaver was alone with a woman. They had been drinking. The police ordered them out of the room, and they came out, raised their hands, and got on their knees. So far, thing seem routine. Police responded to a call from a concerned bystander, they were concerned that the suspect may have a gun, so they demanded to clearly see Shaver’s hands. That’s entirely fair and appropriate. Then, however, things got strange — very strange — rather than asking Shaver and his friend to keep their hands visible while police (who, at this point, had guns pointing straight at both of them) approached and applied handcuffs, they ask them to crawl towards police in a highly-specific way. The Washington Post’s account is decent, but you have to watch the video truly grasp the strangeness of the requests: Langley tells Shaver to keep his legs crossed and push himself up into a kneeling position. As Shaver pushes himself up, his legs come uncrossed, prompting the officer to scream at him. “I’m sorry,” Shaver says, placing his hands near his waist, prompting another round of screaming. “You do that again, we’re shooting you, do you understand?” Langley yells. “Please do not shoot me,” Shaver begs, his hands up straight in the air. At the officer’s command, Shaver then crawls down the hallway, sobbing. At one point, he reaches back — possibly to pull up his shorts — and Brailsford opens fire, striking Shaver five times. In fact, the Post actually sugarcoats the encounter. At one point an officer tells him “do not put your hands down for any reason,” even saying, “If you think you’re going to fall, you better fall on your face.” Then he says, “Crawl towards me.” How he can crawl without putting his hands down, I don’t know. As the sobbing man crawls, he reaches back towards his pants (perhaps to pull them up) and is immediately shot dead. He had no weapon. He had done nothing wrong. And now he’s dead. Essentially, what the police told an innocent, law-abiding, intoxicated American was this: Follow my highly-specific, very strange instructions or die. There was no need to make him crawl. The police were in command of the situation. At no point is there a visible weapon. I have seen soldiers deal with al Qaeda terrorists with more professionalism and poise. When a man is prone, his hands are visible, and your gun is trained upon him, he is in your power. At trial, the officer testified that he though the suspect was reaching for his gun, and that if he had a chance to do things over, he’d make the same decision again. In other words, he presented the classic defense. He was afraid, so he fired. I’ve written about this before. Juries time and again acquit frightened cops, regardless of whether the cop botched the situation or whether his fear was objectively reasonable. I wrote this after the Philando Castile verdict: Legally, it’s not enough for an officer to show that he was actually afraid for his life. He has to show that “a reasonably prudent person” would also have the same fear. Clever defense lawyers twist this standard into a line of argument that goes something like this: The officer was afraid, and he can explain...

    In my experience, they can't imagine how "we" would be safe (in the broadest sense) without police supposedly "protecting" us. (even though SCOTUS has repeatedly ruled that's not actually what they're accountable for)
