I think the Dems would go scorched Earth."I think the Dems would go scorched Earth."
Look at all the policies and laws they are trying to pass. They are only lining their pockets at the expense of American citizens.
Bad news is Hawaii will still be a Blue (as in depressed) State. We are too stupid and slow to realize things
I wouldn't go with the annoying "Am I being detained, or am I free to go?" tirade. I'd just tell them I'm willing to cooperate and answer all of their questions, but I'd like to consult my attorney and have them present before I say anything.I know that is an annoying "tirade". But when you are in trouble never lie or talk to cops other than in irritating "Legalese".
If you already gave them a vague statement, like "This stranger threatened me with that knife, and I shot him in self defense," that's all you need to say at the scene. Save the details for when your lawyer gets with you.
If you just shot someone, I don't think saying "Am I being detained?" is a very intelligent question for you to ask!
I'm not sure "arrested" is accurate. I think (from reading about many of those cases) the Cops will detain you for questioning. If the facts appear to support a valid justification such as self defense, and the prosecutor at that time doesn't intend to file charges, you will most likely be released without charges."I'm not sure "arrested" is accurate. I think (from reading about many of those cases) the Cops will detain you for questioning"
But, if the Cops on the scene have a reasonable suspicion that what you did was not justified -- that you did break the law -- then they will arrest you. When you're arraigned, they may or may not drop the charges, continue incarceration or release you on bail.
Baldwin would be able to post any amount of bail the judge might require, so I doubt the investigators will want to file charges until 100% of available facts are gathered. In the meantime, he's walking around just as freely as he would be on bail.
If, and when, they finally arrest him, it'll be interesting to see how severe the charges are. It'll probably be a manslaughter charge due to negligence or something similar.
I just hope the investigators learned what not to do from the Simpson case. OJ should have never been found Not Guilty, but the police created enough reasonable doubt for the jury to acquit. The civil trial was not so forgiving. Ask yourself, how can one trial reach one verdict, and the other one that followed find him "responsible for the deaths?" Obviously, the same evidence was viewed differently by the people making the judgement.
Anyway, Baldwin pretty much gave the prosecutors the statement they needed to convict. In his TV performance -- um, interview -- he said that nobody but the armorer for firearm props was allowed to give firearms to the actors on set before a rehearsal or take, so they can personally check the weapons to be sure they are safe. If he knows that, then why did he accept the gun from someone other than the armorer? Why didn't he say to the director, "Get the armorer over here to check this gun so I know it's safe?
BALDWIN broke protocol when he accepted the firearm from the wrong person. That's negligence at the very least. Some might say gross negligence, since we are talking about lethal weapons which he's handled on numerous other projects.
Blame everyone but yourself? Not when you were the person who fired the thing.
regardless of the legal outcome, Alec Baldwin did kill someoneIs it not true, that here in Hawaii, regardless of the circumstance, that someone who kills somebody
Sounds like the shot is a preventative treatment and not a vaccine.You are one of the few kids that get it!
I think murders, assaults, rapes, and other violence happens almost daily here. Look at the number of sex offenders just in your own neighborhood:I don't live on Oahu, Thank God!
Most of the murders and assaults happen between family, friends and people who know each other. The random violence seems to be focused in the Waikiki area and involves tourists or bars after midnight.
I still have people tell me they never go to the North Shore after 9:00pm. The stories of people being beat up and robbed there are never ending.
A homeless man killed a tourist by pushing him into the Ala Wai Canal a few years back. Mental illness was blamed, but he'd been arrested some 70 times before.
Is Oahu dangerous? I think it can be, but not any more than any other similarly dense population center, maybe even less depending on time of day and location.
What I don't see here that i see in other places is a constant law enforcement presence. In NC, I could not drive more than a couple of miles without seeing a town Cop, a Sheriff or a Highway Patrol car. It's not that crime was that common, but that a police presence made anyone thinking of doing something wrong have second thoughts. Hard to get away after a crime if the cops are everywhere you go.
There are countless people out there that refuse to even explore the premise that this virus was handled with underlying agendas in mind."They" saw an opportunity to influence the public mindset using fear"
It was about control, and yes, to put the blame on a sitting POTUS that they wanted to get out of office.
Public safety was second. "They" saw an opportunity to influence the public mindset using fear. It's been done before (climate change, rogue foreign leaders, financial instability, etc.)
Hope people now strive to seek truth instead of just "trusting" what is said by supposedly people of integrity. Are you listening Fauci? I'm using you as an example. Don't feel bad, there are thousands and thousands just like you. In gov't. In media. In the medical and science fields and financial institutions.
Moving goalposts seem to be the new fashionable thing to do nowadays. Sad.
The metric I am using is macro-based and is exemplified by economic and technological growth that the legitimate government uses to foster the social-economic well-being of its people and nation-state. Since Deng Xiaopeng instituted China's reforms about 40 years ago, the Chinese version of communism has improved the wealth and stature of the Chinese people and national status without the use of war. No other nation in history can boast such a peaceful rise to World power status, especially in such a short period of time.No other nation in history can boast such a peaceful rise to World power status, especially in such a short period of time.
If we are using a metric of civil liberties, then China has not met Western standards. However, China and people of Asia are not Westerners and should not be held to standards historically and culturally foreign to them.
Anyone who has worked on a system which required various levels of testing understands one basic premise:I spent twenty+ years in experimental flight test.
If the system doesn't pass the test, that test was SUCCESSFUL -- it did not fail.
Any properly planned, prepared and executed test plan that identifies and gathers information pertaining to performance outside of the required or expected results is a success. It means that corrections and improvements must be applied and the tests re-run.
I look at these test results as a success, as the problems have been noted, and the fixes are being engineered.
What's the use of even running a test if we expect everything to work 100%? We could just skip all tests if the systems always passed with flying colors. It would save a bunch of money, resources and time in the release schedule.
They should congratulate their test teams. They are doing their jobs.
The article listed Lockheed-Martin as the prime contractor for this project. I'll have to do some looking into the sub-contractor list. There's a slate of "usual suspects" on every big-money gov't project. Whoever wins the contract normally hires subs to help -- in anticipation that those companies will do the same for them on other contracts.
