Re: America on Fire

I'll take the "lazy" Chilean cops with strings tied to the butt of their revolvers any day over the trained to shoot/beat first, ask questions later, hyper militarized cops in the U.S. Hopefully the Andy Griffith style of police forces don't change there, but who knows after the the recent riots. I ...

Re: America on Fire

Am I missing something here? The death was NOT ruled as asphyxiation, right? I never said the guy wasn't killed by the cops. By the way, I've been choked out dozens of times, and I never once said "I can't breathe", or "Hey you guys want to get pizza after this". Because, when you're being choked ou...

Re: America on Fire

Because you like to argue and play devil's advocate to rile people up? There's a reason why "don't feed the trolls" is one of the rules of the internet. Some people love to get attention. I specifically said "This is the only point I am arguing." Because - it's not possible to asphixiate someone wi...

Cardiopulmonary arrest means Floyd's heart failed.
Yes, it means is heart fail. Why do you suppose his heart failed?
Why on earth do you think I'm arguing that point?

Re: America on Fire

if you lay someone on the ground face down, apply minimal pressure or wieght to their back, they will pass out and eventually die because the ribcage can not expand and contract normally. It is not designed to work that way. it is well known risk, and has lead to death so many times that it is incl...

Re: America on Fire

Very interesting. I was in a Jui-Jitsu wrestling club in college. I've never been chocked out or seen anyone get choked out by a "double knee on the body, no leverage, hand in the pocket" technique. You omitted some important details...the man was handcuffed, prone on his stomach, with a cop using ...

Re: America on Fire

I see this headline "Active duty US military forces staged in the DC area in case needed to bolster security" posted 34 minutes ago. I can't find where the U.S. military is attacking protesters. Got a link?

Re: America on Fire

Absolutely not defending US Police action, but according to Wikipedia : Preliminary results from the official autopsy found no indication that Floyd died of strangulation or traumatic asphyxia, but that the combined effects of being restrained, underlying health conditions, including coronary arter...

Re: Help-Roaming problems (Aussie phone and number/sim)

your foriegn phone must be registered in Chile, and most likely timed out on the network as you stayed here for too long with it. just a guess. Yep. It happened to me tambien. I got 30 days on my phone and they zapped it. It took a full week after I submitted my registration form until it started w...

A no lose situation - except for everybody. Lol! I get your point though. Good insights bro.

Re: America on Fire

What is strange to me is that it was just a few days ago it was all the anti-mask antilockdown protesters. Now that seems to have been suddenly and entirely replaced with this race/police protests. Maybe this is the transition event from cv to the next set of 24 hour news cycle fires. Not that the ...
