I disagree about it being a training issue. You see examples all the time of white offenders who have shot and killed people taken into custody without any use of force at all.

Still reeks of lack of training. You can't be comfortable with a situation unless you train for it. Someone who pulls their gun in this situation clearly lacks the experience to make the correct decision.

I will say that a part of the problem is there are a lot of calls police answer that they have no business dealing with and don’t have the training to deal with. That’s an entire different subject.

I agree.

George Floyd wasn’t shot. Eric Garner wasn’t shot. So the same police that didn’t react with force when armed white people protested outside their capital lost that training when it came to George? Or were those cops off that day when he got murdered? How about the other 3 officers that did absolutely nothing to stop their co defendant? None had training. If the police treated everybody like they would want their child or spouse to be treated all of this would go away. That has zero to do with training.

No, the police knew George and probably did this premeditated. This case is unique in that regard. There are videos of police using that choke hold / maneuver on white people as well, with deadly consequences. By all regards, the policeman who used this choke hold did so with violation of written regulation on when it should be used. If they were even properly trained on when to use it. I feel like cops are given a patchwork of techniques that they hardly practice when to and how to use it.

Two of the cops were brand new to the force and were with a person who has been a policeman for over 10 years. Sorry to say, it probably would be career suicide to stand up to a cop with that many more years of service. It's not the right thing to do, but it's a very human thing that happens.   Especially when you hear stories about how police department culture can be. They would be branded snitches. Their lives would be hell for their career.

Don't get me wrong, I wish they had the courage to stand up to policeman using the choke hold on George. I can understand their position and they're apprehension to not stepping in.

Now, the third cop, who stood by and actually try to stop people from filming, should be hit with higher chargers than the two new police officers.

It should be training. It should be training that new police should know they can stand up and report on incidents like these.

I get you want people to magically have this thought, "Just treat them like family." But, that is a pipe dream that will never come true. Humans will forever treat people they don't know not as family. Still, you can treat someone with dignity and respect and still care for you family more.

So is it training to deal with POC or all people because they don’t kill white people as often as they do POC. Or do the white police officers know every single white person in the area they police so they some how don’t end up killing them?

Let's be clear about something: white people are killed by police officers, too:

Sadly, the trend of fatal police shootings in the United States seems to only be increasing, with a total 506 civilians having been shot, 105 of whom were Black, as of June 30, 2020.

That's not what this is about, because things can be seen (and often are) disproportionate. Which you hint at, but somewhat poorly IMO.

I think training can be important. Let's train police officers to de-escalate instead of escalating. To realize when a suspect is rendered unable to resist and to get up off his neck. To let junior officers do what is right without the macho bullshit culture. Things like that can all be trained.

I agree; however, proper chokes can be accomplished.  Practicing BJJ folks do them often.  This goes back to your training argument.  Nonetheless, obviously we'd like to see it not have to get to that point to begin with--de-escalation techniques.

    • Off topic but I will answer the original question.  The +2.8 that averages 290+ hits more 3 woods and irons than drivers. Why?  Because he feels that gives him the best opportunity to score. Now, with that said, he played in the Michigan AM at Boyne a couple weeks ago (7100 yds) and his club selection changed drastically.  Position outweighs distance where we play.  As for the pros, guess they approach the game with a similar a mindset.  Curious as to why you guys are questioning this..... Throw the stats out the window  @Vinsk and @iacas, thick rough, tight fairways, hard and elevated greens, and 50-70 yd approach shots are not conducive to birdies at our course.     So, any guesses on round 2?
    • Our country does not have the same size or physical reality. Our people are different. Our privileges are different, our expectations, our tax system, our spirit, our laws, our history, etc. I don't give up? Dude, I'm posting in response to posts YOU keep making. I did no such thing. I simply said that "percentage of cases positive out of all tests" was a dumb (IMO) way of measuring much of anything, and that if you duplicate positive tests, it can and DOES affect that percentage (which is one of the reasons such a measurement is bad). So I'm a 35 handicap scientist? I have three degrees. I'll grant you that my French degree probably isn't of much use here, but my degree in computer science is at least fractionally relevant… and my degree in medicinal chemistry is pretty relevant. I'm no 35 handicapper when it comes to science. Which you might discover if you ever talked about actual science. And you'd be just as wrong. Where has anything gotten personal, prior to you calling me a "35 handicapper when it comes to science"? What are you even reading? I don't even know what you're talking about here — I haven't done that. I didn't take it as factual — I responded to this: I showed you how 50 extra cases can change the percentage. By the looks of it, you take being shown to be wrong as "personal attacks." Sorry you feel that way. In my experience, a scientist doesn't behave or think that way. I haven't really cared much about the COVID stuff. I have other things to do, so I'm not going to spend time googling stuff. I didn't say the double-counting stuff was gospel or truth; I simply said that if it was, your statements were silly. I also said I don't think % positive tests is a good measurement… because I don't. For reasons above and others. Didn't happen. Heck, you're still posting, and nothing's been done to you. I don't watch news channels. You've made a HELL of a lot of assumptions, dude. Not a good look.
    • Sorry I don't mean to hi-jack topic of this thread. I agree with response from Adam. And I did hear the podcast. Made think, "where is the loft measured on the club head?" This link shows how loft can be different on the same club head depending where the measurement is taken.  Graduated Roll Technology ------In Your Driver Graduated roll technology is an innovative new design in golf driver face design. What is it?  
    • Are the greens harder/fater than the PGA Tour? Because… if not, then no, they're not "less desirable" at all. https://thesandtrap.com/gallery/image/41-strokes-gained-table-5-2/ Those numbers hold up (trend similarly) for basically all golfers.
