Re: Thom Brennaman is an intolerant horsefeathers

I haven’t posted in a long time. What a bigot.

...I know this isn’t the main takeaway here, but can’t help but feeling schadenfreude considering his egregious announcing in the 2003 NLCS. What a horsefearhers bigot

Re: College Basketball 2018-2019

I like the Juwan Howard hire. Hopefully for them it has similar results to how the Penny Hardaway hire is looking for Memphis early on. I like the idea of a famous alumnus HC at his Alma mater. But then get sad when I think about that at IU. Our options are Steve Alford, Keith Smart, effing Dan Dak...

Re: Guess what an idiot with a badge did this time...

Well, "violent" was maybe a poor qualifier in this context because it probably has the tendency to conjure offensive idiocy like "legitimate rape." (And the last thing I want is to import tedious work arguments about what qualifies as a "violent felony" here, or anywher...

Uh, why is the first category so egregious? It's not like these are all goofballs hanging goofballs as they sprint across a football field. We seem to often seem to talk past each other, so apologies if I'm missing an underlying point. That said, sure, some streakers aren't the harmless drunken col...

Re: Guess what an idiot with a badge did this time...

Maybe I'm just naive or something but are there lots of sex offenders with warrants out for their arrest? No idea, failure to register maybe? i get a little bit of feeling conflicted and maybe laws down in Florida are different, but in NC you can be required to be a registered sex offender by urina...

Re: Game of Thrones

Yeah, that was very well established, almost too well. OK, I'm probably being dense here, but what is your point? I feel like there is some subtext to the last clause of your post. I think it will come back up. Maybe Jon wasn't as injured as he thought and he didn't want to freak anyone out. Maybe,...

Re: Game of Thrones

It would be pretty badass if, in the next episode, the a-team is fighting a bitchton of undead and it isn't looking great for Jon, but then one of the dragons comes roaring in out of no where and scorches the entire area, including Jon. And the camera lingers on the inferno.. And Jon leaps out of t...

Re: Guess what an idiot with a badge did this time...

We are really bad about preventing it in the first place. This is something that wouldn't even be all that difficult, but for political will. Of course, a portion of the country appears to want to actually eliminate the few preventative measures we have. Certainly, we don't see a lot of wealthy burg...

I know what you're talking about when you say desperation (I'm honestly a little saddened that you thought me so lacking in empathy to the plight of poverty -- like some farcical GOP apparatchik repeating "bootstraps" ad nauseam -- that I thought only the starving homeless could be despera...

Well, then apologies, but your rhetorical choice describing someone "end[ing] up in a situation..." read to me as just that. Desperation may be a factor, but I don't think it's generally determinative here. Other than that, I broadly agree with your post. From the inside, ar least philosop...

Re: Guess what an idiot with a badge did this time...

I think you undersell the societal interest in incapacitation of those who may repeat potentially dangerous offenses. That statement leaves a LOT of nebulous wriggle room. I just don't see the value of a self-fulfilling prophecy like this case seems to be. Person ends up in a situation where they d...

Re: Guess what an idiot with a badge did this time...

I've completely lost what your point is here. No one is debating what you just said. My point is that there is a spectrum of bad guys. Rapists are higher on that spectrum than burglars, but they're both on it. The law accounts for that in the form of harsher punishments for worse crimes; but it's n...

Burglary is just one of many, many, MANY crimes that should be dealt with differently besides simply locking people up for years on end. Obviously, drug offenses is where most of the prison waste is coming from, but this discussion kicked off because of burglary. For one, it's silly to toss out sti...

Burglary and rape are two vastly different issues. At the risk of repeating what Sammy said, lumping them together as "bad guys" is extremely simplistic. And that's why we have significantly harsher (generally) punishment for rapists. They're worse on the bad guy scale. I've completely lo...

Re: Guess what an idiot with a badge did this time...

Burglary when someone is present is obviously a completely different thing. That's...kind of the point. Essentially every burglary presents that risk, which the burglar ignored (to both their own danger, and to whomever might be present). If to, that likelu means the burglary involved some basic pl...
