We are in season 4 of Game of Thrones, so I better get my last word in on the subject. I've got quite a few people that want to shut me down with this. What a lot of people are saying about African Americans doesn't match my experience working and living with African American's. I'm just standing up for what I know as fact, versus all this political BS buzzing around our lives. I don't know everything like 89hen does, but a wise man, not 89hen, once told me if I'm getting kicked in the ass, I'm moving forward, if people are throwing dirt in my face I'm gaining ground. I've gained much knowledge in recent days, of which posters I can trust on this site, and who the sly one's are. With that said, you all know my thoughts, so I'll end it here.
Season 4, episode 8 was the best GOT episode in my opinion. I won't say anymore.
Should be watching it this week then, just started season 4.

If that’s not the episode where Danaryus walks out of the burning fire naked with three baby dragons, then you’re wrong, SG.

I"m not sure was 89 was trying to prove, but there are bad cops, and even though you say you don't believe it, there are a lot of good cops out there. A lot of people have been posting that blacks are bad, 89 showed that whites can be bad too, same with other groups of people.
That the notion of white privilege vis a vis the police is false.
Not quite. There is no doubt blacks face tougher scrutiny from police. What I was showing is that criminals + police = many bad situations regardless of race. Folks like to ignore the numbers and pretend it's only happening to one group of people.

OK, so 12 times. For what was he pulled?
Probably about 15 minutes each time. :tothehand: :tothehand:
:suspicious: For what was he pulled over the dozen times? Speeding? Texting? Littering?

PLEASE ACTUALLY WATCH THIS ONE.


Yes, it's put out by the sheriff, but his commentary at the end is really great. After he speaks at the beginning, you can FF to the 3:15 mark where the interaction starts.

Which goes to show you how dumb the Execs at A&E are. They had the #1 rated show on cable TV (by far). Not only did they cancel Live PD, they cancelled Live PD Wanted, and Live PD Cam. They even pulled all the re runs. :suspicious: So they had to replace tens of hours per week with mostly reruns from other shows that no one watches. By July had lost 49% of their viewers, and have lost a shitton of $$..

DHS draft document: White supremacists are greatest terror threat
White supremacists present the gravest terror threat to the United States, according to a draft report from the Department of Homeland Security.

Two later draft versions of the same document — all of which were reviewed by POLITICO — describe the threat from white supremacists in slightly different language. But all three drafts describe the threat from white supremacists as the deadliest domestic terror threat facing the U.S., listed above the immediate danger from foreign terrorist groups.

The only way I see that white supremists are a creditable threat are if if rioters and looters are allowed to continue and extreme government crackdowns on law abiding citizens begin.

Something about the his article and some guy who got canned. Can't remember, but total shit for a story.

See if I can find my source.

I look at the Criminal Victimization reports such as that at https://www.bjs.gov/content/pub/pdf/cv18.pdf.

I think that, by any reasonable interpretation, such reports suggest that Blacks are disproportionately involved i violent crime. I say that because of the percentages on perceived race of offender. That sort of thing has nothing to do with police behavior.
Well, I believe that I must tell the truth
And say things as they really are
But if I told the truth and nothing but the truth
Could I ever be a star?

Actress Lori Loughlin who was involved in that academic cheating scandal gets to choose what prison she will serve her time in for her crime.

The fact ANYBODY is doing actual prison time for these “crimes” is ridiculous at any level.

Battle of the Bastards is my favorite, which is Season 6. Season 6 is also where the entire show starts to go off the rails. Don't get me started on the final season...so much bullshit. So much illogical choices.

If you're still in S6, prepare to be disappointed. Post in the GoT thread when you're done.

So much missed opportunities and fails in the final season. I will say this - the music during The Battle of Winterfell as Aria is making her way to the Night King is unbelievable. It's such a great score.

Agreed, they did a great job filming and putting that scene together.
