So, this happened last night here on I-5 (not my photo). Northbound and southbound are separated by that gap. Driver got out ok somehow and there are no other injuries. Zoom in for ironic slogan on the back of the truck.

Hi everyone. Spring is definitely here. Dogwoods are blooming, I saw the first hummingbird of the year this week, and the groundhog has returned to our yard. Sorry about the potato quality image, the brown kinda turd looking thing is the whistlepig.

I can report that I have almost completely recovered from my vaccination aftereffects. I say "almost" because I tried to put my jeans on over my sweat pants earlier. There may be some lingering brain fog.

Not sure I can agree with disarming them completely but I can agree with taking some of their weapons away. The bigger stuff anyway. And no officer should be able to keep a backup secret weapon.

That air conditioner is going improve your situation so much, I don't know how you got through last year.

Haha, thank you brother. We plan on having a decent level of mosquito free comfort this summer. At least during sleep hours. And we will spend our last dime to make sure the generator has fuel to cool the place. Shouldn't be anywhere near as as the tent with all the insulation.

There has to be a change that mandates police my not carry lethal weapons on their person routinely.  They can carry them in their vehicle, and request permission to withdraw them if a situation has escalated to that point, but they have to actually be in the situation before they can even access lethal weaponry.

Plus needing to work on "yeah, you don't ever compress necks or chests, people need those to breathe"

My opinion, which isn't worth spit....

A new screening for cops is needed so the racists and power hungry can be weeded out.

Then rescreen every single cop with those new standards.

Oh, and take away the weapons of war...and those banned in war.

You'd need a really good screening system.  Racists and scumbags are usually pretty good at hiding it when necessary

It's nice!  I texted the Kid and said, "Guess you should come over and see it after work," and he texted back, "Guess so."  He was the instigator this time; the dealership knows they don't have to do any selling because this family is all about reinforcing the worst habits of jonesing for a different motorcycle every couple of years.

I could accept firearms secured in a vehicle, that require some extra step to unlock. A request to a central authority that is answerable to civilian oversight, a requirement that any access requires extensive post-incident reports which are available to the public and require an active body cam.

But no cops walking around armed any more. No cops being the judge, jury and executioner.

If that happened, the police would basically stop doing their job. At best, every response would be delayed by asking for permission to have their sidearm and if told no, they wouldn't respond.
