From what I read, the incident was basically a textbook example of Suicide by Cop.

It's difficult to find fault in the officers' actions, and the situation is definitely more complex than the headline "Police Gun Down Unarmed Teen With Epilepsy" would suggest.

How the heck do I pay a bill that doesn't let me get paper statements and makes me create a password that is so impossible to remember that I have to reset it every time I have to log in to pay my bill?

So other people won't pay your bills for you, can't be too careful with those hackers...

My account got hacked and some *** hole paid off my student loans. What an inconvenience.

Seriously, I've wondered that too. On some accounts you can only see the balance and pay bills. I wish you could opt out of a password.

Hmm I thought most if not all lights are magnetic not weight?

I've had it happen on the bike, numerous times.

First time in the Miata though. I thought it was based off weight. Now i'm wondering why it wouldn't see the Miata. Maybe it was malfunctioning.

Nope they work via a magnetic field. When the car rolls over it interrupts the current. Motorcycles now days are mostly aluminum which obviously dont do **** for the magnetic field. Why a miata wouldnt work though, fucked up light would be my 2c.

Touch the kickstand to the electrical strip in the pavement (at least my old R6 the kickstand was steel).

If that doesn't work, I know in OK at least, it's legal to run the light if it won't change.

There's a couple lights here in town that i can't trip. Super ******* annoying, especially when it's at about 11pm at night trying to make a left on one of the major highways on the northside.

Too busy on the main drag to make the left. No traffic in my lane helping me trip the light. I've sat there for 10 minutes before.

Yeah, I was just pointing out here they specifically made it legal for motorcycles to run red lights if they cycle without going green.

I am one of about 8 people here, and the only one in engineering. It's quiet.

Boss called and told me to vacate the place by noon.
