    A Judge Asked Harvard to Find Out Why So Many Black People Were In Prison

    Something else that is missing is legal representation. What percentage of defendants by race were represented by public defenders as opposed to personal paid representation?

    Bill Barr and Donald Trump both said you can vote twice yesterday.

    You mean you can actually vote twice and not go to prison? I thought voting twice was a felony?

    Bill Barr and Donald Trump both said you can vote twice yesterday.

    did you listen to his comment on voting? If you didn't you probably should. If you did, then this is an outright lie. He said vote absentee and then go to the polls and vote in case your absentee vote wasn't tabulated.

    Blake Shooting

    So the situation is relevant? What if he had a gun in his pants and he reached for it, after ignoring multiple commands to not do it? Could they shoot him in the back then? Or would that be cowardly? What if they shot him from the front while he reached into the car, after ignoring...

    Disdain for the Less Educated Is the Last Acceptable Prejudice

    Reading the comments makes me think that there are plenty of readers of the NYT that still don't get it.

    Blake Shooting

    Oh, I get it now. If there is an active shooter the police are obligated to move around to his front so that they do not shoot him in the back. Otherwise they are cowards, because they shot him in the back. The situation isn't relevant. Now I understand. My bad.

    Blake Shooting

    They did not shoot him in the back as he walked to his car. He was shot because he started to reach into his car. The officers do not know what he is reaching for. At that time the suspect's back was the target presented to the officer who shot him. One police officer did not shoot because...

    Blake Shooting

    We know that now. The police at the time did not know that. But you know that.

    Blake Shooting

    Good question. And one the police did not know the answer to at the time of the incident. Why was he reaching into the car? In that situation, I think it is reasonable to think that he was going to grab a more potent weapon. Thus, the police decided to neutralize him.

    Blake Shooting

    Complete conjecture on my part. He had the knife on his person. He dropped it and it ended up on the floorboard when he was shot.

    If you can't handle getting shot, then comply with orders by police officers.

    Absolutely correct. This would have been a perfect time for him demonstrate to his kids how to to react when stopped by the police. We ask the police to do the impossible, and then believe we have the right to Monday morning quarterback when things go wrong. Shoot him in the leg. Tackle him...
