    I'd like to read more about what happened. The article gives a little insight, but not much. Sounds like a tragic accident, but I'd like to see the whole story. Happen to have any more links about it?

    Oh look, another thread about the same thing we're discussing in a billion other threads. Glad to see the board flooded with these types of posts. It's awesome.

    I'm sure I could flood the board with individual storiees of people killed by lightning. Not very common way to go. That would be annoying too. Number of folks killed by cops per year makes up about .0000001% of the population. Not sure what your definition of coomon is.

    Well you edited since but to compare the two is dumb and cops kill way more than lightening

    Btw: lightening has killed 26 people in the USA in 2014 this far

    Not comparing the two of course. Just stating I don't need much to flood the board to make it look more common than it is. The stats are the stats. Your point to sturg was stupid.

    Anyways guess I'll just take a break from here again for awhile.

    we know it happens to average out to at least once a day

    that is WAY TOO MUCH from a gov't body that should be held to a higher standard and is supposed to be protecting and serving

    Having one incident out of 35,000-40,000 arrests a day is excessive? Yeah, I wish there were none but human nature is what it is.

    I'm sure there are avoidable arrests out there as well but generally speaking most people who get arrested deserve to get arrested.

    hell of a conclusion to jump to in a country that says it is free and locks up more people per capita than any one else on the plane t

    What can I say? We could return to the sentencing laws that we had in the 70s and return to the crime rate we had back then.

    Higher crime rates are apparently a good thing.

    Yeah, I remember the 70's and early 80s the **** my brother got away with just a slap on the wrist. Robberies.....shootings......drugs.... it didn't matter. He would maybe spend 3-5 years in prison and be right out being a public nuisance again.
