"Apple didn't come from behind in the smartphone market. They created the market. "

Well, that's one view into the reality distortion field.

And I bet if he had said something along the lines of "Apple came from behind in the smartphone market and knocked the heretofore industry leaders on their asses", you'd have an equally useless and snarky rejoinder.

Sometimes the inverse RDF is just as strong as the RDF itself...

Nobody is forcing you to read what I write. If you don't like it and don't want to talk about it then feel free to go read someone else's JE. You can allege "judge first" all you want, but you should be aware of the judgment you yourself are casting when you do that.

The difference being that I'm here to entertain myself. I don't get all self congratulatory with my higher goals to improve the plight of my fellow human beings. I'm also not claiming to engage in anything approaching a fair or reasonable discussion. Much like I read and posted for years at Daily Kos (and here), "it's the hypocrisy".

The guy was eighty years old, the young people attacked and robbed him in his own house and had done so before. If he shot her before they left, it was certainly justified. If it was indeed in the alley he should certainly face murder charges. As the article says, that hasn't been determined. Personally, I'm going to withhold judgement.

It involved a gun. DR is going to assume the worst.

Charging her accomplice with felony murder is pretty clear cut (depending on how the statute is written). Death occurs during the commission of a felony.

The old man... It is going to take a little time. His advanced years would tend towards going to violent defense sooner rather than later. It does seem like a questionable shoot.

So, any thoughts about the doctor who capped his patient last week?

Imitation is the sincerest form of plagarism.
