Added reply in a thread Why Didn't James Stewart Sign With PC? 12/16/2014 5:32 PM
I think it was a matter of James/Big James knowing their value and being compensated for that value. Why take a PC deal when he had the heat to get his own personal deals? Why share a rig with 3-5 other riders when you could have an entire staff just ... more »

I could be wrong, but I'm assuming you aren't African-American. The "why" is certainly complicated and it makes perfect sense that you wouldn't have a connection to it. Actually, it would be a bit odd if you did really understand. Some people are more ... more »

He was lucky. BINGO!!! All things being equal that guy is more often than not going to get a "lucky break" that I, most likely, won't get. From the encounter, to the charges, to the incarceration (if any), to the aftermath of re-entering society. Yup, ... more »

But I just don't get why a large population is under the impression that police are just drooling at the mouth to take a life. I don't know that I'd say "drooling at the mouth", but there are the ones that have no problem applying lethal force without ... more »

Yes, it is a complex debate and I too am glad I'm not having to make this life and death decisions.

If he'd of rushed the cops they'd of shot him... Maybe. Probably, but with what? How lethal? They seemed determined to neutralize the threat and control the situation, but not permanently harm him. Lucky guy.

That guy in the video seemed to know he'd be alright. I, however, would not make the same bet. When I'm in close proximity to law enforcement my heart begins to race and I make sure they can see my hands if I'm driving. In general I try to avoid them...I'm ... more »

The only reason this is a national story is because of the Ferguson deal. Okay, I was thinking it was a national story because: 1) he was unarmed, being dealt with for something that was probably the equivalent of a jaywalking ticket. 2) he was choked, ... more »

Was the memorial to "Steve Jobs" or to "Apple CEO"? What happens if the next CEO is not gay? Stupid. In other news my APPL shares closed at an all time high of $109.40...
