Actually that video does show the switch being lifted when moved to the other positions. It is hard to catch the switch being lifted, but at 2:20 when they are unlocking the door, you can clearly see the switch shaft lowering back down after being lifted and moved. You can also see the notch in the switch body where the switch shaft locks into place when not raised.
As I watched further I do see at 3:05 they moved it to the locked position without raising it, so there you are correct.
I'm not sure how worried I am about an AI, since it could also develop a conscience.
There are plenty of actual human being that don't have a conscience, why would you assume a new intelligence would automatically have one?
There are many more cases of the SWAT team going to a wrong address or having bad information for other reasons and shooting innocent people than there are of SWATTING. Giving hard time to people who commit SWATTING would not address the larger problem of police that are out of control and want to shoot everything that moves.
It in pretty regular that the dog will be shot no matter what the situation, even if the people there are all innocent bystanders. It has also happened that grenades have been thrown into baby cribs. It was a flash grenade, but it still killed the baby. And there are elderly people in bed killed when the SWAT team breaks down their door. There are even web sites that keep track of all the hostile and inappropriate actions by SWAT teams.
no it isn't. aggressive sexuality, dick jokes to women you don't know, is an immediate uncomfortable put off to all women as it tells them something about the male no female wants to deal with.
So you are saying that all women are weak minded little pussies that can't take a joke! Are you sure you believe they are equals to men or do you actually believe that they are substandard and we should all tip-toe around them because they can't handle adult conversations. Are they allowed to hunt and kill animals if they want, or should we keep them locked up in the kitchen, barefoot and pregnant? Your views seem old fashioned to me.
