I made it a whopping 1:19 in, and could take no more of this annoying chick. She looks like the act of speaking is somehow difficult or painful, and she does not understand the words she is uttering. Her facial contortions while she's talking leads me to believe she's never heard the addage that less is more.
The authorities are gonna release what they want, when they want. Idle speculation is pointless.

I noticed those things you've mentioned, and they are factors. Portion sizes though, that is what first astounded me - and continues to do so.
People just eat to much at every meal. Adding to that that what they overeat is the bad stuff you mentioned makes it worse.
However, I do know folks that follow a plant based, whole foods lifestyle - organic, no additives, unprocessed foods - who are fat because they eat too much. 
Another factor I noticed  - and continue to notice - is the sedentary lifestyle people lead. 
Between garbage nutrition and the general lack of even light exercise, it's no wonder the health of the average American sucks.

They be lazy, true - but most Americans eat poorly in the nutritional sense. And the serving sizes folks eat are huge.

I left the States in 1970 and lived overseas, returning the the States i 1993. I was shocked at how fat everyone got. 
I would say the obesity rate is a bit higher than 4 out of 10, and the rate of folks being fat but not obese - and let's face it, that covers a wide area(Pun intended), probably runs close to 8 out of 10.

well, the fact that he will not face the same penalties you or would if we, as civilians shot a retreating, unarmed man - then obstructed justice as well as committed perjury, hardly mitigates the fact that he did it because that is the environment police work in.

Good to hear. 
Situational awareness and a cool head can avoid and defuse most problems - training, should they not.

It's nice that police brutality and racism can be excluded in this incident.
Now, I wonder how many times the cousin was shot by the cpl holder, cause that guy was firing wildly in a panic. He obviously does not train with his weapon.
I am a gun owner, I am a cpl holder, and it's my opinion that gun owners should be required to train - in an ongoing basis - with their weapons. Cpl holders should be required to train more extensively - again, in an ongoing basis.
That is responsible gun ownership, that is gun control.

Many of the so called white nationalist nazi rallies aren't self identifying as white, Nazis, or nationalist in the nazi sense. That's what antifa calls them - but then, that's what antifa calls everyone that isn't antifa, except the other terrorist organization blm.
The reason the rallies have been unsuccessful is those people get permits and demonstrate peacefully and lawfully, while antifa shows up without permits and spoiling for a fight.
Then the media carries on about the violent nazis.
Makes no fucking sense.

Pretty sure I got 'em all covered.

squidbush My wife and I never had issued disciplining our children. Further, we never had to resort to beating or spanking them, shaming them - popular these days, making kids stand in a public place wearing a sign stating their transgression, or verbal abuse.
We did not depend on outside agencies or institutions, nor did we whine about limited legal means to discipline our kids.
Most parents - in my opinion - are not active enough in their children's lives, do not participate in their children's lives, and so do not really know their children.
Outside of anger and abuse, it's difficult to discipline someone you don't know.
Hence, kids get into all kinds of situations, develop all kinds of thought processes and traits, parents do not know about and can't effectively correct.

" ... Another new fear to add to the list". 
If one is easily prone to fear, or fears things that have a statistically slight rate of occurrence, or just fearing things because one has a poorly developed sense of situational awareness and plods through life like safety is assured - then sure, add this one to the list.

The broader and more addressable issue is that we have entrenched, systemic issues not only with how police do their jobs, how complaints are investigated, how officer conduct is monitored and regulated, but also with how district attorney's treat police crimes, how police crimes are presented to grand jury's, how lesser charges and slap on the wrist plea deals for cops are discouragingly the norm, how the courts show incredible leniency to criminal cops, and how legislators absolutely refuse to address these issues.
Rather than singling out target victims - who admittedly make up the greatest percentage of those victimized by the system, the best course is to demand change for the sakje of all - thereby cutting off petty arguments involving special treatment for one group or another. 
This is called pulling together, which typically works better than does rank division and partisanship.

I will remind you of Mr. Walter Scott, who was stopped for a minor traffic violation, was NOT confrontational, and who was shot to death while running AWAY from a police officer.
Spin that one. C'mon, spin that one.

Actually, it's up to the authorities whether of not to pursue charges, as the authorities witnessed, documented, and acknowledge the crimes.

You can lose your drivers license, but get it back. You can flat out be denied a pistol purchase permit in my county if any of the various and vague requirements are not met. not a good equivalency.
Most gun owners I know are not worried about their weapons being confiscated, they do have concerns about restrictions on what is available for purchase, and increased fees. Those concerns, historically, have some slight merit.
