Not only do I intentionally try and start problems with people like this, but I enjoy it. 95% of those "types" are complete pussies. Same goes for anyone with that sort of mentality. I was raised not to put up with bullshit based on someone's skin tone. If you're a piece of ----, prepare to get treated like one.
Honestly, I feel so bad for many of my black friends who are normal. They cannot even turn on the t.v. with face palming hard. It's a shame.
You're kidding right? If someone is trying to steal my property and give me some ***** attitude about it, I'm going to make a scene. The dude's bike would have been long gone if we would have observed from a far and I'm sure the police never get calls about black people stealing bikes, so he would have gotten it back, right?
I mean, come the ---- on, the dude cut the lock in broad daylight in front of people! Is he protected under some new government program or something?

I understand the situation and am appalled that the "security" just didn't give a ----. Placing myself in the same situation I personally would have done precisely what I suggested he should have done. Consider the following, I carry a gun for self defense purposes. Regardless of the situation, not removing yourself from the conflict had it escalated can result in severe criminal charges. Consider the consequences of confronting the individual as I described.
Situation escalates into a physical confrontation:
and the guy gets shot by you
you get shot by the punk
his piece of trash homeboys bum rush and beat the ---- out of you
his piece of trash homeboys bum rush and relieve you of your gun, possibly resulting in getting shot by your own gun.
I live in a "stand your ground" state if in fact you fear for your personal safety. What isn't acceptable is contributing to escalating a situation to use of deadly force. That's just what *I* would do, anyway. If my choices involved a physical confrontation or letting the cozzers deal with him...
Removing any legal recourse, I would've rather just shot the piece of crap. One less thief in the world wouldn't be a bad thing.
Heavens, no. I'd never do that. It's a "return your shopping carts here" spot outside the Stater Bros. grocery store, which happens to not be marked "no parking," and I've always been curious as to whether my car would fit into it. The answer is "Yes, with less than an inch to spare in total." If I were running 275s and rolled fenders, it wouldn't have fit.
It synchronizes the the CVR transcript with the ATC recording and a moving plot of the aircraft's location, with actual video footage of the splashdown at the end.
Kinda sucks we don't get the audio, but if they are as calm in the cockpit as he is on the radio, that is beyond impressive... just absolutely as perfect as people can be. That's seriously some Jason-Bourne-on-his-best-day-ever kinda stuff... cool, calm, methodical, by-the-book bad-*** fuckitty awesome!
Having spent 2 years working 10-15hrs a day on the flight deck of an aircraft carrier during a war, I have in-depth firsthand knowledge of all manner and severity of "inches-from-death" types of crisis. What happened in that cockpit that day should make everyone re-evaluate their definition of "good".
I keep hoping Hornetball will chime in here and tell you one of his good ones... I know he has a few.
