  2. Thanks for posting, it's a great interview.
  3. Sgt. Bilko. To show you how slow on the up take I am, it was only this afternoon, watching this movie for about the 20th time, that I got the name Bilk-o, that he bilks people out of their money. I don't know I missed that one all these years. It's a dumb movie, but I really enjoy it.

    This is not the kind of officer we should be looking at to lead any positive change in policing. Interesting that the Tulsa PD has him assigned to the Records Division, no doubt, to keep him off the street. Article about Major Yates and what he thinks. Another One In other words, I will look to other places for ideas about police reform.

    Exactly, and it's a mindset that seems to be rewarded with promotions and climbing the ladder. It just seems, in my opinion, that the police are relying too much on military tactics of person and crowd control in situations that don't need that kind of approach. Would it have really made the situation out-of-control if Chauvin would have stood up two minutes into the arrest? Derek Chauvin also has a military background (I'm not surprised)

    This leads to something I've been wondering about a lot. Whether the abundance of ex-military on police forces is a major issue. I have a lot of relatives with military training, and the thing about that training is that it is designed to get a person to be able to kill someone -- and that is hard to do. There have been studies to suggest that police officers with this background are more inclined to use force, or shot someone in the course of their duties. ( A article about this ) There's a number of things that can be done to properly train police in deescalating situations, and that definitely is one area that needs improvement.

    Camden, NJ police seems to be what's on everyone's mind. They reorganized their police department and things seem to have improved. Here's a link to an article about it.

    The Barbara Stanwyck Show. Nice half-hour dramas, nothing earth shaking, but it's always enjoyable to watch Stanwyck in anything.

  18. More proof of how clueless Rumsfeld is. Why give this to Jordon who did jack for the victims of 9/11? This worship of Jordon is going to sickening levels. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Associated Press WASHINGTON -- Before his final home game as an NBA player, Michael Jordan received a flag from Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld at center court. It was the only bit of ceremony preceding Jordan's final home appearance Monday with the Washington Wizards, for whom he has played two seasons in his second comeback. A bigger tribute was planned to follow the game, with the details kept secret. Rumsfeld, who received a loud ovation, presented Jordan with a flag that flew over the Pentagon on the one-year anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. Jordan cradled the flag in his right hand with head bowed during the national anthem before tipoff of the game against the New York Knicks. Jordan's introduction during the starting lineups was a letdown, with the cheers not much greater than the ones for Rumsfeld. The MCI Center crowd gave Jordan a standing ovation that lasted a mere 25 seconds, some 3½ minutes shorter than the one he received in his final game at Chicago earlier this season. Then again, Jordan himself tried not to make a big deal out of the game, with his greater focus on what he says will be his final NBA game ever -- Wednesday's season finale at Philadelphia. "It's just another night really,'' Jordan said after the morning shootaround. "I know that this is my last home game in Washington, D.C., and that is something I definitely will treasure, but I woke up this morning and I thought that there was this certain feeling that I should be feeling -- and I had breakfast, coffee, did my normal stuff -- and nothing seems out of the ordinary.''
  19. Red Dust. Clark Gable & Jean Harlow make a incendiary couple, definitely a Pre-Code movie.
