Comment Lets just cut the bullshit (Score 1) 243

Lets just cut the bullshit. Here we go, when a white male turns 18 he gets randomly sentenced from 10 to 20 years in prison. A black male gets 20 to 40 years and a Hispanic male gets 20 to 50.

A women will get a random sentence from 5 to 10 years regardless of race.

There that should do it. I think I covered police prejudices in my assessment quite nicely. Address all present and future crimes all in one setting

if that doesn't work lets just send the police out to collect any random person they want for any reason. Drag them before a judge and lets just let the judge roll dice to determine jail time. or spin some big ass wheel like wheel of fortune.

Oh I like this too. Lets just let the police shoot any random black male once a month during every month with an R in it. Beat a few homeless for sport, and pepper spray any student gathering bigger than 1.

fuck justice and this innocent till proven guilty bullshit , rights. what rights? every is guilty of something. Lets just cut the middleman and all those expensive trials and go right to punishment phase.

Wrong, again. From reading that long wall of post is clear to me that I know more about this than you do. I just choose not to waste my trying to explain that to you. Just from reading how much you put in to your post, it is clear to me that no amount of discussion will change it.

So I instead to point our your wrong with the slim outside chance you will realize and go educate yourself. But the more than likely you will not and continue to be wrong.

This saves both my time and yours.

I'm going to head in the other direction but stop half way. I think life at the single cell level might be fairly common. But as you go up the evolutionary ladder it get more rare, with intelligent life been extremely rare.

While I think that is the mostly likely reason there are not more advanced civilizations in the galaxy, my favourite is simply we are the first one. Why not? Somebody has to be first. I like to think that some where down the road a million or 10 million years from now some alien archaeologist will be digging through the remains of our civilization and wondering what we where like.

Wouldn't it be nice if NASA would stop coming up with these hair brain ideals to get around the solar system and just blew the dust off the old nuclear rocket programs from the '60s. With some new research and with the new technology we have today these rockets would be more practical than "lasso'ing a fucking comet." A nuclear rocket could be a probe to pluto in a few months instead of a few years. Hell it could get anywhere in the solar system in a few months.

That joke about the Nokia 3310 lasting two days before it drops 1%? It's almost not a joke. It's a phone and that's pretty much the limit of its functionality, and that's really all you need in a phone. Still got mine, it's in my GO bag and it gets a boost charge ONCE a MONTH.

It's no joke. That thing was beast when it came to battery life, I had one. I flew down to Orlando to visit the mouse and left my charge at home. That week I used the phone like I did at home, place a few calls on it, calculate some tips, look at the date, and play a mean game of snake sitting on the pot. When I set the phone back in its charger I still have two pips on the battery meter. I probably could have went two more days before it died.

I'm going to make them hurt for this. I normally use right at about 400 to 450 GB a month. They charge me $30 for that. I actually try to keep my data usage under control and stay close to my 300 GB limit.

Since Comcast is determined to squeeze me. I will pay the extra $30 for the unlimited usage but I'm going to use it. I will have to use at least 450 GB a month to make it worth it. So every month I will use at least 450GB, and I'm going to attempt to double it just for spite. Being a vindictive jack ass that I am.

For starters you would never see my fat ass again. I would never post another thing to /.. My ass would be laying on some beach somewhere with some bronze honey fanning me with one of those palm leaves and other serving me cold drinks out of a coconut cup.

Some people say, "if I ever get rich I won't quit work." Screw that, may ass would be out of here. It would be the last thing you ever saw of me as I ran out the door.

This is exactly the damn problem. You want to solve the problem between the police and the community they "protect and server?" Take them out of the god damn cars and put them back walking a beat.

When you have the same cops walking the same beats in the same neighbourhoods, they stop becoming outsiders and start becoming part of the neighbourhood. People know then and start to trust them. They are not some random stranger that rolls up in the 'hood and starts shouting orders.

Horse hocky. My Nexis 7 rolled over and died a few weeks ago so I had to scare up a replacement tablet. I choose Asus Z580C to replace it. This tablet has a intel atom Z3530 processor in it, which I found out later is a x86 based processor.

I've had it for 2 weeks now and I've very pleased with it. To say the x86 can't be used well in a mobile processor is grade a bullshit.

The trouble with a lot of self-made men is that they worship their creator.
