Re: General Police Abuse Thread

I don't have any official figures, but among the petty hoodlums it is generally accepted as indisputable fact that female cops are more likely to shoot you dead and get away with it. "I felt threatened," plays beautifully when you're 5'2", whether you actually did or had murderous int...

Decaptiation might fall into this, if the brain does keep working for a short time afterwards.
Um. How is the functionality of the brain relevant to the heart and lungs working, following decapitation?

Re: New law will fine stores for separating toys by gender

Does anyone see a point in such a punitive law, when the COVID-19 pandemic has devastated the US economy? I think the fine is an overkill tactic where public shaming would probably be sufficient, coupled with good business sense - why discourage any kid from begging for any toy if your goal is to s...

Re: Trump/Republican Coup Thread

Any guesses as to which crimes Trump was trying to hide by keeping his tax returns private ? Well, in addition to the various types of fraud mentioned in the article, I'm guessing tax evasion tops the list. I'm also personally guessing that his even bigger (to him) concern is hiding the non-crime o...

Re: Trump/Republican Coup Thread

Considering his zeal for "firing" anybody he could who didn't have their nose buried so far up his ass their sneezes ruffled his toupee, I think it's fair to say Trump was in charge of everything that he could be, which is why his administration was a trainwreck.
