CC Random thread

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

I heard he was resisting arrest, fighting cops, and tried to run to his car and shit... not sure if it’s true, but like Abe Lincoln once said:
“Don’t believe everything you read on the internet”
Haven't you seen the video? It's all over the place. :|

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_cont ... e=emb_logo

Yeah, sure, he seems to be resisting arrest, he is walking to his car, but to shoot him seven (sic!) times in the back, point blank, while you're tugging on his shirt seems a bit much imho. :|

There are three cops there, facing an unarmed man. They should find some better option to handling the situation than that.
As usual these days Per is not up to speed.

I miss the old Per! :(

UMMMMM. Y'know what other video is "all over the place" Per?

The one that shows Jacob Blake wrestling with those police officers in the dirt.

Yeah, that occurred just prior to the video clip you presented.

So yes he actually DID resist arrest.

And this cat isn't the wonderful family man you present him to be.

He's got a rap sheet as long as your arm!

We're talking felonies here and there was an active arrest warrant out for him.

For things such as assault with a weapon, domestic assault, and sexual assault.

He's a violent, dangerous individual and the cops knew that going in.

(police were called in because he was allegedly involved in yet another domestic dispute)

Then he allegedly pulls a knife (he's since admitted to this).

Seriously, what did he think would happen?

Maybe in Sweden when police say you're under arrest you are allowed to physically fight them and then pull a knife.

But on this side of the pond we're civilized folk for the most part. :drink:



1:40 mark is where Blake's criminal history is presented.

4:07 mark is where the EXTENDED video is presented (Blake wrestling with police).

But you really should watch the entire video to grasp what a farce this whole thing is.

This guy gets it.

As your link said, they give out bottled water to all kinds of folk.
It was added for the audacity.

Rittenhouse was there legally protecting a gas station.

The rioters were there illegally... because well they were rioters.
At the beginning to "protect" a gas station, however his Facebook was promoting Blue Lives Matter.
And? It makes total sense that a guy who would protect a gas station from arsonists would also support Blue Lives Matter.

Skyo, you don't carry some kind of a sick grudge against Blue Lives Matter supporters do ya pal? :wow:

Doesn’t that make him dangerous?
No, because as the video shows, he seems to be a chap who only shoots people who attack him.

Likely had a good reason to murder someone in public? WOW
Self defense.

Strangelove wrote: Wed Aug 26, 2020 8:51 pm After shooting that first guy, he had to make his way to the police (a block away?).

Either that or more violence would surely follow (many rioters were also armed).
The protesters/rioters, were calling him out and pointing him out to the police and not shooting at him for him christs sake.
UMMMMM. They also knocked him to the ground, kicked him in the head, and tried to take his gun.

They didn't start "pointing him out to the police" until he finally got close to the police (a block from gas station).

Notice he’s the one being charged for murder? And not nobody else, as he KILLED people?
Yes I did notice that actually.

And I also noticed he KILLED those two in self-defense.

OMG really!?! A handgun versus a semi-automatic rifle?
You're right, that wasn't fair, he should've just let the rioter shoot him! :lol:

I mentioned the handgun to remind you that some of the rioters were armed...

Yes as he was killing people!
Nope.

He was walking towards the police and then those two assaulted him.

So he shot them in self-defense.

Strangelove wrote: Wed Aug 26, 2020 8:51 pm You said "the cops keep their cool with him and arrest him without having to blast him 10+ times".

Are you inferring that cops never shoot white guys when trying to make arrests?
I’m inferring in THIS instance versus Jacob instance, it’s painfully obvious the disregard for life for people of colour in MOST instances. White people with guns for whatever reason tend to get arrested without getting shot down, while people of colour holding a phone or a knife or nothing at all tend to get shot down neutralized, shoot first ask questions later by the police.
I guess you didn't know Rittenhouse was arrested the next day at his parents' house.

He didn't have a weapon at the time and was not resisting arrest.

Hell, if the cops had shot him, someone may have started a Teen Lives Matter movement! :D

SKYO wrote: Wed Aug 26, 2020 8:00 pm Meanwhile people of colour are getting blasted on with just having a knife or in this case Jacob Blake walking to his car with his kids in there to make sure they were ok.
:lol: :lol: :lol:

UMMMM... after wrestling with the cops and getting tasered (didn't affect him for some reason)

... this violent fugitive from the law known as Jacob Blake went to his car to get his knife.

Don't get me wrong now Skyo, I do totally agree that black lives matter...

There are more white people shot by police than blacks
400 plus to 300 plus
There were 14 unarmed ( but resisting) black men shot last year by police

Blacks killed 2500 other blacks last year in the USA

He's getting charged with multiple felonies.
Kyle Rittenhouse could get life in prison for murder ... along with 4 other felony charges.
He shot an unarmed individual and another person who threw a plastic bag at him.
The 17-year-old arrested in the fatal shooting of 2 Jacob Blake protesters in Kenosha allegedly killed at least one unarmed man, and could get life in prison for murder ... along with 4 other felony charges.

The criminal complaint against Kyle Rittenhouse was released Thursday, and it says the first person the Illinois teenager allegedly shot, Joseph Rosenbaum, "appeared to be unarmed for the duration of video" reviewed by investigators.

Prosecutors say Rosenbaum appeared to throw an object at Rittenhouse before the fatal shooting, and a second video apparently shows the object in question was nothing more than a plastic bag.

The complaint also says Rosenbaum leaned in toward Rittenhouse -- apparently trying to reach for his gun according to a witness -- and then fell to the ground after 4 loud bangs. Then Rittenhouse got on his cellphone to make a call, and prosecutors say he was overheard saying, "I just killed somebody" as he ran away. He's been charged with first-degree reckless homicide for Rosenbaum's death.

Rittenhouse is also charged with first-degree intentional homicide (murder in most states) of Anthony Huber. Prosecutors say Huber -- seen with a skateboard in several videos -- approached Rittenhouse, who was lying on his back, and appeared to reach for Rittenhouse's gun. According to the complaint, Rittenhouse fired a round, sending Huber staggering away before collapsing to the ground and dying from a gunshot wound.

All told, prosecutors charged Rittenhouse with 5 felonies -- the 3 others are 2 counts of first-degree reckless endangerment and one count of attempted first-degree intentional homicide.

That last count was for allegedly shooting Gaige Grosskreutz, who prosecutors say appeared to be armed, and suffered one non-lethal gunshot wound.

If convicted, Rittenhouse could face life in prison just for the first-degree intentional homicide of Huber. He's also facing one misdemeanor ... for possession of a dangerous weapon by someone under 18.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

Don't fret none Skyo, Rittenhouse will get off, his lawyer will simply argue self-defense. :thumbs:

Or maybe he pleads guilty to the misdemeanor and 2 counts of reckless endangerment in a plea deal to drop the other charges

... and comes away with 6 months probation.

This kid will probably get rich from the book deals, don't you worry your purdy little head none Skyo!

I've decided the only way I'll be able to watch the rest of the series and playoffs is on tape delay so you'll have to excuse my absence from the live game threads. Will reevaluate the situation next season.

Go Canucks!

Hey Rats. Black Lives Matters is about racism, specifically (and this is from the BLM website) "the rampant and deliberate violence inflicted on us by the state."

So although the inkilling, as you call it, is a problem for black lives, it's is a different problem to the one that BLM is focused on.
