(NPR)   That 75-year-old crisis actor who pretended to be knocked down by the Buffalo police and suffer a skull fracture as a result has just left the hospital, 1 month later. Man, that's a serious commitment to the role   (npr.org) divider line

Soros has an excellent medical plan and pays very well.

"Martin said that he is pleased at the progress made so far to protect the safety of peaceful protesters, a topic near and dear to his heart," Zarcone added. "He respects the burden of authority placed upon law enforcement but looks forward to the continued implementation of systemic changes to eliminate police brutality."

A tiny bit of good news for once.

There's only one old man I want to see fall down and bleed from the skull on video.
 
2020-07-01 7:29:42 PM  
I'm still wondering how he pulled off falling harder than he was pushed.  He must have secretly paid off gravity to help.
 
2020-07-01 7:32:23 PM  
He fooled an entire hospital? Doctors, nurses, HMO, everyone? For a whole month? He is an artiste! Bravo! Gary Johnston could take lessons!

This thread isn't about President* Trump.

Now go and change your armor.
 
2020-07-01 7:34:25 PM  
That's not commitment. Commitment is 130k people dying from a hoax just to hurt Trump's election chances.
 
2020-07-01 7:34:41 PM  
Well. the Trumpzi's strategy worked because now nobody even remembers this guy because they've made every single day since then even worse.

They all have to die.  To put it in words they'll understand:  That is the ultimate solution.

The only grifters involved are the ones sitting comfortably in the White House playing you and your fellow MAGAts like a poorly tuned fiddle.

It's actually Daniel Day Lewis. He retired from film to prepare for this role.

The police sure are expensive.

It's pretty likely the cops are going to be paying all of his bills from now on.

I know a man who is trained to take a fall when I see it.

/this man fell poorly
//his sucking at falling shows a complete lack of training
///it's a very good skill to have.

I'm sure they're going to pay them many times over.

Apparently not: "Two Buffalo Police officers, Robert McCabe and Aaron Torgalski, were suspended without pay after the incident, and have been charged with one count each of second-degree assault. Both officers have pleaded not guilty."
There's all kinds of interesting stuff in those articles, if you read them.

A month ago? I feel like that was last weekend and a year ago.

No, Buffalo tax payers will.  Force settlements to come from police retirement funds and watch how fast the number of incidents drop.

Jesus Christ you're bad at this.

i have a friend who suffered a fall in his kitchen, bonked his head pretty good, he's been in the hospital (or their satellite recovery/therapy facility) for two farking years now. it has just been one complication after another. i miss him but what's weird is that he's still here, he just isn't at his house or standing, or feeding himself, or capable of standard day to day conversations.

get well Rich!

update: actually, i recall just this week getting the good news that he started feeding himself.

what i'm sayin' is head injuries can be devastating and if you feel that you are going to pass out, just lay down man, just lay down, no matter where you are.

Five months ago Trump was the first President in American history to be impeached and have a member of his own party vote against him in the senate.

That's like 'The Prestige' levels of dedication to your craft right there...
 
2020-07-01 8:03:21 PM  
Dude should have never been there in the first place.  Beyond the fact that he is super high risk for covid, putting his hands on the cop was just stupid.
 
2020-07-01 8:03:35 PM  
It's rare to find talent so committed to their role.

Yeah, but in buffalo, NY.
The only reason to go to Buffalo is to cross into Canada.

So by this logic, you're OK if your wife is raped by a cop when she gets stopped for speeding? Because she shouldn't have been speeding.

Do you even think before you write shiat like this?

Back when he was doing the professional wrestling thing with Jerry Lawler, Kaufman did pay out of pocket for a completely unnecessary weekend at a Memphis hospital to sell a angle where Lawler "injured" his neck during a match.  I think a  month long stay would have even been stretch for him though.
