I don't think that this is a good argument for that either. He had a warrant for being charged with carrying an unlicensed hand gun. Do we want cops interacting with guns and they don't have one? What's the solution, to not arrest him but let him go until a cop with a gun can? In the meantime you hope this person doesn't commit a gun crime?

Yeah that sounds fine. In this case there were at least three officers there, they could have just slow played it until the backup gun cop arrived.
Also, expired registration is as much of a bullshit reason to pull someone over as an air freshener hanging from the rear view
The only time I’ve ever been pulled over was for expired registration stickers. And I am very white.

It's bullshit, being forgetful and/or poor doesn't put anyone in danger.

I can actually see an argument that something hanging from the rear view impairs a field of vision and makes driving more dangerous.

He was pulled over for having an air freshener hanging from his mirror and was killed because a cop thought she was going to taze him but grabbed her pistol instead.

I think there is plenty to be angry about.

Yeah there's room to be upset about both George Floyd and Daunte Wright.

If George Floyd is the standard for outrage being allowable nothing will ever change.

That is absolutely not what I said.. I'm making a request for nuance and you two seem to be like, nah. One conversation is about policing, one conversation is about murder.

Also he wasn't pulled over because of air fresheners. He had an expired registration sticker then his warrants came up. They knew he had a warrant on a weapons charge. Despite knowing this they still didn't approached his car with their weapons drawn. They told him he was being arrested he broke free of the officers then got back in his car.

This woman shouldn't be a cop, she shouldn't be charged with murder. Masking Wright and this officer the focus of what happened here is the easy way out and completely misses the larger, more relevant point.

Obviously they're different, I didn't realize people were saying they weren't. Honestly if this didn't happen a few miles from the Chauvin trial no one would probably be giving a crap. (Which is sad)

We would kick ass at a Mckinsey

The sleep idea is a good one. Also there has just been a lot of talk about the importance of mental health even if a lot of it has been insincere bullshit from people who just wanted to fully open the economy.

How do you guise explain this?

?s=20
Random brainstorm like a McKinsey session with a billion sticky notes on the wall:

- Built in excuse to not perform/Reduction in work, social, or school pressure.
- Less in person bullying.
- government support programs kept people afloat financially
- Fewer new relationships formed that ultimately result in failed relationships
- Social anxiety reduced because there is no socializing in person

When are you post-vaccine maskers going to feel comfortable unmasking and going back to life as usual?

When the risk of me infecting my children is gone or close to gone.
To be clear, the risk might be gone already but I don't think there's enough data to confirm. I could be wrong though.

Well we know you can still get COVID after getting the vaccine, we know some variants are breaking thru easier than others, we know the rates of kids getting COVID is increasing, so I have no idea how one could assume the risk is gone.

One of my schools has 47 current active student cases. 127 new student cases on the district this week and over 600 students quarantined.

Good summary:

https://www.healthline.com/health-news/if-youre-vaccinated-can-you-transmit-covid-19-what-we-know#Vaccines-may-reduce-virus-infectiousness

That article was explicit in saying that a reduced viral load doesn't necessarily mean less infections because there isn't enough info on infectious dose. Which, by the way, if we don't know how much infectious dose is just enough, how in the hell could anyone say with any confidence what a prolonged exposure is and what that even means?

I'm agree with you, we don't know enough yet. (I don't think we know the rates of kids getting Covid are increasing overall despite rates in your area, though)

Amazing, somehow less cringey than the rap update guy (even if he gets it)

shitty thing to share

I've seen an overwhelming number of stories like this about DMX. He seems like he was a lovely man.

I’m poor AF! Because I go to Disney World so much!

About a year from now.  I think the end game is for the bug to just peter out.  If your city has zero cases for a month I think masks can get lost.
Yeah smart to let data and public health experts guide that rather than setting an arbitrary deadline. We'll also know a lot more about how much vaccinated folks transmit.

Of course I assume most people will be done with them regardless of what public health experts say because so many people already are done with them
