Civil Rights leaders taking police training

Quote:t was a split-second decision.

A distressed man with a baby in tow was pacing back and forth in a manic state and shouting incoherently. The responding police officer calmly addressed the man in an attempt to calm him down and defuse the situation, but the man suddenly pulled an object from his side and lunged toward the officer. Instinctively, the officer raised his Taser and squeezed the trigger. It turned out the man was armed with a knife, but the "officer," who was actually the firebrand African-American activist known as Quanell X, acknowledged he would have fired whether the assailant had a knife, a spoon or an empty hand.

“I didn’t even see it,” said the leader of the Houston area Black Panther Party, who was taking part in a training scenario in an attempt to understand what police officers go through during high-pressure situations. “It could have been anything in his hand, and I still would have used force to stop him.

“It all happened so fast," he added. "You don’t know what they could have in their hand.”


I thought this was great. Reading the whole article, I don't think the civil rights guys really completely conceded to the police and still maintained the police are not trained well enough. However they were forced to concede that this backseat driver thing people are doing isn't right and isn't fair.

They didn't go so far as to say police are in the right...but at least they admitted they couldn't do it themselves, and that is a great start. And hopefully the word will get out to the street that these kids need to just do as they're told and get a lawyer later, if necessary.

So I'm guessing that Mr. X now has a different take on the Zimmerman trial and the actions that were taken to defend oneself ?? Dodgy

I wish the people that evaluate us nuclear operators were required to have been previously licensed.

I feel for the police, the Monday morning quarter backing is the most frustrating part of my job.

At least he is starting to see the light. Various people I've read about that comverted over to "our side" took years and several key life events to finally get the whole picture.

That's quite shocking, actually. I honestly assumed they were.

Some are, a lot aren't. A lot are "gift" licenses..., meaning the company let them get a license to punch a ticket for promotion, and they spend no meaningful time in the control room.

As for the NRC, they could never have set foot in a power plant and become our inspectors. The NRC chairman himself was never an operator, he's a lawyer. At that level, that's probably OK. We have resident inspectors though, and our current "senior" inspector walks around our plant with a "deer in the headlights" look. Our last senior, though, knew more about the plant than most anyone..., so I'm not saying that they're all clueless.

It's all very hit and miss.

I appreciate the fact that they at least spread the message to comply immediately and don't act stupidly. I think they finally understand why people get shot who act like idiots, don't comply, and start reaching for things.
