Re: Random Thoughts Again

My point was more about people who have an education are likely, hopefully, to be less like thugs. Perhaps, I don't know, but I don't see it as a practical solution. In a town like mine, being a police officer is relatively easy. The places where you need people who can keep their cool under pressu...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

I'd be equally curious to see a study on the quality of people you get as cops vs. salary. How would you measure the "quality" of people? The police in my town (Snobville) are very well compensated and incidents of police brutality are virtually non-existent. But that doesn't mean the lac...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Good luck with that.

I didn't lay out 200-large for my sons' educations so they could ride a squad car around a crappy neighborhood. And I imagine anyone in law enforcement who goes to college does so because that's exactly the sort of assignment they DON'T want.

Re: Random Thoughts Again

I'm not sure why/how taking Western Civ and Psych 101 is going to ensure that a person will keep their composure when making an arrest and not over-react. I went to college. So what. If I thought there was any chance that someone resisting arrest was going to try to harm/kill me, I'd have the club o...

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

Oh, the butcher and the baker and the people on the streets,

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

The team that beat them 4 games to 1 in that WS is a mortal lock to lose 100 games this year. It can happen fast.

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

Hey, you get a first baseman that someone else is paying for. What's not to like? A penny saved is a penny earned.

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

I don't feel sorry for him, but I think he might need a sports psychologist. His confidence is completely in the toilet. It will be interesting to see what happens if he doesn't improve next year. Do you then pay him to suck again? ... pay him to sit the bench? ... DFA him so he can join the Mets? H...
