  1. Oh. Sorry. Maybe Matt will notice and combine them.
  2. The biggest can of worms ever seems to have been opened. Overall, it's a very good thing, but I'm pretty sure some innocents will get caught up in it too. "U.S. Rep. John Conyers, D-Detroit, on Tuesday denied a BuzzFeed report stating he made sexual advances to staff and that he secretly settled a sexual harassment claim by an employee for more than $27,000 in 2015. The bombshell allegation was leveled at Conyers on Monday, when Buzzfeed reported that it had copies of affidavits filed by four former employees who said they saw the longest-serving active member of Congress and civil rights legend repeatedly making sexual overtures to women staffers, requesting sexual favors and touching them. It represented what could be the most serious threat to Conyers' storied career ever." https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2017/11/21/john-conyers-denies-sex-harassment-settlement/884585001/
  3. Also, we've gotten completely OT, this thread was about the tragic murder of a police officer. Maybe we should move on.
  4. Never considered that angle. I kind of figured weed and harder stuff were separate markets. I am all for legalization of marijuana, but I hesitate at harder stuff, unlike some others on these boards. Not saying they are clearly wrong, but just not ready to accept over the counter heroin.
  5. Yeah, let's not play with the numbers. You used Colorado as an example. While I'm pretty damned sure there was never the level of violence our city has experienced in Denver, Pueblo and etc., do you know if their level dropped, stayed about the same? Also, the legalization there is weed only - does that make a difference?
  6. So are you suggesting that legalization will NOT slow the killings?
  7. Ahem, absolutely no more than 78,725 times. Stop exaggerating. 😉
  8. I understand that sentiment, but the resources and manpower required to do this 300 times a year are non-existent. And, no, I don't want to be the one trying to explain that to a victim's family.
  9. Very believable stats that back up what most of us thought we were seeing. Agree with the overall play being mediocre, but I'd add over-saturation (does anybody watch Thursday nights if their team is not playing?) and to a lesser extent, the National Anthem mess as contributing factors to the drop in NFL ratings.
  10. Nah, they got a first down on two runs, then 3 more and out.
  11. Bowanko on the field. Jensen out?
  12. Hurst is a disaster.
  13. Nice job D.
  14. Replay is broken.
  15. Good point, and it might help any officers pursuing action against the DA.
