Re: Here We Go Again (Minneapolis, MN)

True, plenty of white people are shot and killed by police, it's not just the shootings, it's the legal system from the police thru to the courts. According to the Minnesota Supreme Court Task Force on Racial Bias, Blacks have a 20% higher conviction rate than Whites committing the same crime. I do...

Re: Here We Go Again (Minneapolis, MN)

Neither, and it depends on the situation. Again, based on what I saw in the video, as well as her spontaneous statements before and after she shot the guy, I doubt very seriously that she intended to have her pistol. Your theory that she forgot which one she had in her hand is also plausible. I do ...

Re: Here We Go Again (Minneapolis, MN)

Clearly this woman did not have the mental/emotional aptitude to handle a high pressure situation like this and police work was probably not the best carrier she could have chosen. She screwed up. Bad. Nothing I have seen, however, has convinced me that she had any intention of killing this kid. Al...

Re: Here We Go Again (Minneapolis, MN)

Unarmed people should not be getting shot during a traffic stop, whether they resist arrest or not. I've known many a young white person, that have done some crazy things when getting arrested, and none of them have been shot by police, or even thought their lives were in danger. There are plenty o...

Re: Here We Go Again (Minneapolis, MN)

Neither Floyd or Wright should have died but I'm not sure the cases are comparable. The officers had Floyd under control, when Wright broke away and went into his car the threat level was much higher than with Floyd. Cops may train for that kind of thing but how often does it actually happen? I hav...

Re: Here We Go Again (Minneapolis, MN)

I think we have gotten to the point where the Black Lives Matter people have gone too far with the histrionics when something like this happens. There was a moment in time when the public opinion momentum was building on their side but it's gotten out of hand. I suspect there are many people who we...

Re: Playoffs

I don't think both NDSU and SDSU get in. One of the 2, will have 2 conference losses, finishing 3rd or 4th. UND if they win, have head-to-head over SDSU. SDSU if they win, has the head-to-head over NDSU. I'll be surprised if a 2 loss MVFC team gets in. There's no way the Valley gets just 2 teams. A...
