Rochester PD Statement:

"The individual was roughly the same height, weight and age of the individual the officer believed to have a warrant."

Yeah, that is reasonable - "roughly" covers a lot of ground.

Sure, I get that, but roughly is often used in the same way as approximately absent certainty.

News headlines.....

"Ford recalls roughly 2.5 million vehicles over door latch, brake problems"

Report: Roughly 400,000 U.K. Firms Won’t Say Who Owns Them

If the best thing that happens is that statues get taken down, I'm afraid we'll have just changed clothes without taking a bath first.

The best thing in terms of removing symbols of hate. What NASCAR did is good but removing the statues is better. It represents a beginning of removing the symbolism of hate in our country, of honoring people who sought to perpetuate a regime based on slavery and who were traitors to the US. Symbolism is important and removing these symbols is very important.

I see Jefferson Davis came down last night in Richmond.  About time.

No, I actually just put "roughly" in the search and then clicked the news tab. Seems professional journalists and high school kids both use the word.

Oh, I'm all for that, and fully recognize the importance.

But just taking down symbols doesn't change people's hearts and minds, and what they teach their children, and what they do to other people. That part is not that easy.

If we ought to know anything about human nature by now, it's that we love us some superficial change. We can too easily settle for looking right rather than being right.

so yeah, it's the right thing to do, but this is going to be a long, LONG process, and frankly, I wonder/doubt if we'll ever really get there. "Far enough" and "too far"....too often that's what happens.

Besides - anything can be made into a symbol. Where there's a will, there's a symbol. Or will be.

Yep, in Portsmouth VA. Fucking people kept on hammering and pulling, obviously without being aware and what fell landed on the man's head.

They should have waited for the public works department to do it. Let the pros handle it.

otoh, maybe they should have invited some Iraquis in to do the job. Looks like they know how to do this type of thin:
