NotThatGuyAgain: Someone Else's Alt: NotThatGuyAgain: Someone Else's Alt: physt: Someone Else's Alt: Dimensio: My boss (or rather his boss) gave the go-ahead for all of us to leave and work from home.

If you can do your work from home, why are you all in the office?

My boss's boss insisted we all return to the office. Of course, he just bought a house 1,600 miles away in Florida where he's moving to so he can stay remote. I go into the office and shut my mouth so I can stay employed during a world wide pandemic.

If I were you and caught covid, I am pretty sure I would own your bosses new house in Florida.

Obviously, YANAL.

Do you really think you can prove, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that you caught Covid at a specific place and time?

How do you prove that your blown out shoulder was a "work related injury"?

Track an Tracing. If I come down with covid and have participated in any activity that puts me in "contact" with other people for the prior 2 weeks, but are forced to work in enclosed space with other people and one of those other people in the work place turn up covid positive, especially if they are a anti-masker that has FB photos of them and six of their friends huddled together not wearing masks and drinking the weekend before, yeah I think I can make a good case.

Jesus.

Let's see...a virus that can't be seen with the naked eye versus OW THAT farkING HURT.

Yeah, totally the same thing.  You are either trolling or dumber than a litter box.


You can't "see" most of the hazards that are in a workplace. Gases, cancer causing agents, asbestosis, mold (sick building), lead etc etc etc.

Try to remember that as a manager of a facility, I am required by OSHA to provide a SAFE work environment. I have to have documented training on respirator mask fit test annually to keep my staff from being exposed to chemicals that have a 1 in 1,000,000 chance of causing cancer from LONG TERM exposure.

So what you are saying is, no employer can be held to a similar standard when dealing with an airborn virus because? Reasons?

If I have been at home for more than 14 days prior to being forced to come into the office to sit next to anti-maskers and get covid, and just one other person in that office turns up positive at the same time, I can make a good case that it was work that exposed me and that my employer did not take adequate steps to protect me and the rest of the staff from it.

Just look at current the CDC guidance for track and trace exposure, do you think you are more likely to get it at a gas pump, even though I wear my mask, use hand sanitizer before and after each pump, use wipes to wipe down my door handles, steering wheel etc after each stop etc, or siting in a confined space 8 hours a day with a covid positive employee coughing all over me and the boss is not providing safe distancing, N95 masks that are fit tested, face shields and routine temperature and covid testing of staff to limit accidental asymptomatic exposure?

I say it again, I could make a good case.

Ringshadow: So related headsup: apparently the city bought her boyfriend's house for a single dollar.

Also, reminder that the cops tried to pressure the boyfriend into getting her involved in drug charges after her death. The entire police department is sus and should be fired.


To be fair the house had some damage to the front door and the walls, so its value was significantly degraded.

Not quite a slap on the wrist, but a mere Class D felony is still a joke of a result.


Does that charge carry a stiffer sentence than having some weed on you? Because if not, then having the devil's lettuce is apparently worse than killing an innocent in their home. Layers of farkuppery, like an onion made of scars and pus.

Class C:
Class C felonies include unauthorized and unlawful access to a computer, unauthorized use of a credit card involving $10,000 or more, assault in the second degree, and manslaughter in the second degree, and trafficking in a controlled substance (over a certain amount). People convicted of Class C felonies face 5 to 10 years' imprisonment.



Did any of the bullets strike a computer?  That could have got it bumped up to a Class C.

I hear Enos was just convicted by Boss Hogg's cousin for money laundering through a restaurant.  Enos was innocent, Boss Hogg was the crook, and his cousin arranged it so everyone could save face except Enos, who kept trying to help those Duke boys, anyway.

(does that translate in Kentucky?)

Some died as a result. 1st Deg Wanton Endangerment is a class D Felony with up to 5 years. It's bullshiat, should have been manslaughter.
 
2020-09-23 1:49:30 PM  
If I'm hearing correctly, it sounds like the wanton endangerment charges are because some of the bullets he fired went through walls and into other apartments. The charges have nothing to do with the fact that he killed someone.

bfh0417: PunGent: dracos31: Just a reminder for the "alternative facts" brigade:

Yes, burning down shiat in protest is wrong. Police killing an innocent person and lying about it is MORE WRONG.

To paraphrase somebody else, if you're more worried about property damage than about murdering unarmed civilians...

[Fark user image 425x515]


I disagree strongly with the "The Left" quote there...

The implication there is that guys like Rittenhouse, who was ostensibly protecting property, are no more guilty than Breonna Taylor and her boyfriend, because both were "defending property".

But I think most people, even "the left" would consider somebody violently breaking down your front door while you are home to be a situation where the victim would reasonably fear for their own life.  Assuming the perpetrator is just going to take their TV and leave them unharmed in any way is not at all reasonable.  You think they won't pull a gun or a knife to cow you while they loot your shiat?  That they will just say, "I'm here to take your TV, can you please just look the other way?  And not call the cops until I leave?"

Someone who breaks down your door while you sleep is obviously unconcerned with waking you and therefor is not concerned with the fact that you will wake up and possibly(probably) resist in some way.  They are ready for a fight.  In that situation, the violence against you personally is implicit and grave.

The scene in Jeff park is tense.  There were some calm voices, but the anger is present.

Police helicopter has been overhead for about an hour, and there's now police presence at the barricade entrances to the cordon all along the perimeter.  For those who want to know what this looks like:
Fark user imageView Full Size

FYI, I'm at the top-left corner of the cordon and up a few flights.

Adjacent to my building there's a public street-level parking lot.  Earlier today the press arrived in the lot, and set up at the barricade.  After a few minutes, armed individuals in tactical gear parked near the reporters vehicle and passed by 8th and Market, entering the cordon; They didn't look like police and were not driving marked vehicles.

Not much going on by me at the moment-

King Something: dark brew: 1 officer charged with wonton endangerment.  Lovely.  Remember that before this case got any real attention following George Floyd's death, Breonna Taylor's boyfriend was charged with attempted murder of a police officer and aggravated assault.  Prosecutors charged him quickly, drawn out process to drop the charges.  Now we have a drawn out process to throw a tiny charge at an already fired officer.  Justice in this country is well farked.

Frankly it's a miracle they didn't charge him with murder for the police killing her. Their argument could easily have been that his "felonious" actions (returning fire at intruders who did not announce their presence before opening fire) directly caused the death of someone who had died before he fired his first shot.

/along with informing the jurors that they have really lovely families, whose home and work addresses are known to the police, and it would be a real shame if something happened to them


Attempted murder of a police officer was going to put him away for 20 years and it is beyond clear now that they put no value whatsoever on Breonna Taylor's life, so they didn't need to charge the boyfriend with felony murder.

Now, if one police officer runs over and kills another police officer during a call, you bet your sweet ass that prosecutors will find a way to charge someone not wearing blue with that officer's death.  We are really past the point of being able to fix the US justice system, but there should be an independent prosecutor's office for every state that just handles police use of force and corruption cases.  Otherwise it's the local prosecutors who are buddy buddy with the cops and don't want to hold them accountable for anything.

It's because he was firing blindly.  Not sure it mattered that the bullets went into other apartments.  He had no idea what he was firing at, but fired 10 times anyway

Yup. He was blindfiring into the apartment after the initial shots. Doubt he hit her. He was charged for endangering the people in the next apartment, as identified by their initials.

Police should not be in charge of their body cams.  A civilian review board should have first access to body cam footage.  That will prevent cops from using the oopsie excuse as a way of not releasing damning footage.
