Wrongfully taking someone's life has to be the most evil sinister thing you can do. Participating in it or allowing it to happen has to be just as evil and sinful. Officers of the the God Damned Law. Protect and Serve..... shrug

When he was yelling "drop the gun" he was letting the other cops know he was going to shoot him. When he asked " go to the back and get the bag " he was asking to go get the evidence to plant. When he asked " are you on" he was asking if the other cop camera was on. The cop said " I don't know". They kept telling his wife to back up because they didn't want her to record while they plant the evidence. They didn't call the ambulance because they did not want him to live. In the other videos with no sound clearly you know why.. I'm no genius but this sounds like a set up from the very beginning. My question is how many of those cops on the scene Consider themselves good cop? Do the Cheif consider himself a good cop?  Anyone who allow this type of behavior to continually happen Can't be a good cop. How can you be a police officer and let this happen?

6  Discussion / Sports Forum / Tour the Minnesota Vikings' new stadium on: September 18, 2016, 09:39:41 PM

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings sought an innovative and unique look for their new stadium that could be instantly recognized on national television.

To receive public funding, the place needed to be covered, and a retractable roof option was passed over for a translucent cover. It’s more cost-efficient and can make the interior almost feel like the outdoors when coupled with the top-to-bottom glass front of the asymmetrical, ship-shaped building.

The see-through plastic panels that account for 60 percent of the roof, a space-age material called ethylene tetraflouroethylene or ETFE, are considered more acoustically reflective than the Teflon cover over the old Metrodome. The Vikings enjoyed a significant edge during their 32 seasons in that stadium, often thriving off the sounds of an amped-up crowd that reverberated off the ceiling.

Now, at U.S. Bank Stadium, the capacity is a bit larger at 66,000 seats. The angle of the roof could also tilt more of the noise toward the visiting team benches. The seats and suites are the closest to the action of any venue in the NFL, at 41 feet and 25 feet from the sidelines, respectively.

8  Discussion / Sports Forum / Third-quarter Mistakes sends Valdosta State past Albany State on: September 04, 2016, 12:21:20 PM
VALDOSTA — Caleb Edmonds saw his pass attempt hit the hands of a Valdosta State defensive lineman and deflect into the hands of sliding linebacker Dante Robinson.

Edmonds might have given a prized possession to have that throw back.

Robinson’s interception at the Albany State five-yard line gave the Blazers a first-and-goal where two plays later, Dallas Baldner hauled in a short touchdown pass from quarterback Roland Rivers to give Valdosta State the lead.

The Blazers never trailed again on their way to a 16-7 victory over Albany State in front of 5,401 in the season opener for both teams Saturday night at Bazemore-Hyder Stadium, continuing VSU’s dominance between the two Southwest Georgia schools. The Blazers improved to 17-1 all-time in the series.

It was a victorious coaching debut for Valdosta State coach Kerwin Bell, whose Blazers were outgained on the ground 220-67 as well as through the air (157 to 137). But four ASU interceptions led to 10 Valdosta State points, including Robinson’s pick that set up the Blazers with the go-ahead score with 3:39 left in the third quarter.

Edmonds, trying to make something happen with the Rams deep in their own territory, may have tried to do too much. Albany State led 7-3 and its defense had kept a potent VSU offense grounded.

“You know, the guy tipped it up and when the ball goes into the air like that, it’s bad,” said Edmonds, who finished with 157 yards passing on 15 of 30.

“No quarterback likes that and no offense likes that. It’s going to be bad most of the time.”

Albany State coach Dan Land wasn’t happy with the turnover, but he chalked it up as a learning experience.

“We made a play down there and there was just miscommunication where it was at,” Land said. “We didn’t want that type of route, but what happened was there was miscommunication between Caleb and the sideline. We wanted a fade route, and he did an out route and their guy threw his hands up. It was a good play by them and a bad play by us.”

Land refused to say that the third-quarter interception led to the outcome.

“We still had opportunities to make some more plays to get back into the game,” he said. “We just didn’t and the second half just didn’t go our way. We made good calls, offensively and defensively, and the defense got a little tired because the offense wasn’t on the field long enough to give them a break. It worked all the way around, we’ve just got to finish in the second half, we just got to do it.”

Valdosta State (1-0) scored all of its points during the third quarter, overcoming a 7-0 deficit.

Edmonds engineered a 10-play, 72-yard scoring drive midway through the second quarter that culminated with his six-yard touchdown run. He was 3 for 3 on the drive, completing a pair of passes to former Westover High standout Ta’Keevian Harris as well as a key 21-yard pass to freshman Tyler Storey to move the Rams inside the VSU 25.

The Rams held Valdosta State to just 33 yards of total offense in the first two quarters.

However, the Rams’ second possession of the second half helped the Blazers get on the scoreboard when a pick by Andre Johnson at the Albany State 26 led to an eventual 43-yard field goal.

The Blazers’ longest scoring drive was 42 yards after an 11-yard ASU punt late in the third quarter. Quarterback Roland Rivers scored on a nine-yard scamper to make it 16-7.

Albany State marched to the VSU 29 early in the fourth quarter before another interception killed the Rams’ chances.

As tough as it was for the ASU players to swallow, safety Nick Scott said the Rams must make the necessary corrections before meeting Tuskegee next Saturday in the White Water Classic in Phenix City, Ala.

“We’ve got to learn from it and build on it so we can improve the rest of the season,’” he said.

Land said he saw several positives, but he was disappointed that Albany State once again didn’t find a way to finish the game after leading at halftime.

“The biggest thing I was telling them at the beginning is that we had to finish,” he said. “That was what we harped about all last year, and that was what we went into this year saying that we wanted to finish. We just didn’t get it done tonight. But I saw some good things out there, I really did.

“The second half, we just got to come out and do the things we need to do and make sure we don’t make the mistakes we did again.”

9  Discussion / General Discussion Forum / Teen dies after girlfriend gives fatal hickey on: August 31, 2016, 02:17:52 AM
(KUTV) A 17-year-old has died after a hickey reportedly took his life, according to a local news outlet in Mexico City, Mexico.

Doctors say the teen began having convulsions while at the dinner table eating with his family in Mexico City. Before dinner, Julio Macias Gonzalez had spent the evening with his 24-year-old girlfriend, who is now in hiding, reports The Independent.

Medical professionals believe the suction of the hickey resulted in a blood clot for the teen. Doctors believe the blood clot traveled to his brain and caused the fatal stroke.

This isn't the first time for a passionate kiss on the neck to land someone in the hospital.

In a 2010 case, was reported in a New Zealand Medical Journal where a 44-year-old woman was rushed to the hospital after losing movement in her arm due to a hickey on her neck, Doctors weren't sure why the woman was having a stroke, but then noticed a bruise on her neck and realized the suction on a major artery created a blood clot, which traveled to her heart, causing a minor stroke.

I would think that in this time and age black people do not need and endorsement from any particular black person to persuade them to vote one way or another. With that being said, I'm trying to think who in the hill could persuade me vote for Donald Trump.

I also see a tearing down of black preachers/ministers and churches on the rise.

I mow, edge,trim and then blow. Blowing is always done last. I always connect the bag when mowing.Im too lazy to rake.  All lawn waste has to be brown bagged and put curbside.

The third leg runner slowed down too much on the hand off. That was when the race was lost.  Just plain old sloppy. You would think as large as the US is we could find someone who is fast enough win the 4x100.

Golden Rams, Blazers just outside Preseason Top 25

If you asked Kerwin Bell or Dan Land where their teams ranked in the Division II preseason polls, odds are they would know.

But they probably wouldn't care. The two know the season opening showdown between their teams is inching ever closer.

The AFCA Division II preseason poll was released Monday. Neither the Golden Rams or the Blazers cracked the Top 25.

Both though are in the always popular "Others Receiving Votes" category.

Valdosta State actually missed a top 25 ranking by just 20 points. You could say they are 27th in the poll, with Albany State a little further down.

The two teams square off Saturday September 3 at Bazemore-Hyder Stadium.

Northwest Missouri State No. 1 in Preseason AFCA Poll

After winning a fifth national title in 2015, Northwest Missouri State will start 2016 where they ended last year – at No. 1 in the AFCA Division II Coaches’ Top 25 Poll. This is the fourth time since the poll began in 2000 that the Bearcats start the season ranked No. 1. Semifinalists from last season’s playoffs, West Georgia and Grand Valley State (Mich.), are ranked second and third, respectively, followed by national runner-up Shepherd (W.Va.) at No. 4. Colorado State-Pueblo rounds out the top five.

The first week of action starts off with three Top 25 matchups as No. 1 Northwest Missouri State begins defending their national championship by traveling to No. 24 Emporia State (Kan.). The second ranked team in the poll, West Georgia, plays host to No. 22 Catawba (N.C.), while No. 5 Colorado State-Pueblo travels to in-state rival No. 18 Colorado School of Mines in a key early-season matchup in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference.
