Re: “Recalculating the CRC

I have to sign up for Facebook to download a copy of the study? Are you shilling for Zuckerberg now?

Re: “Red and Black Vs. Cops: "In No Way Comparable To Racial Discrimination"

Last November the Membership of the Portland Police Association marched on City Hall to object to Officer Chris Humphreys being disciplined for shooting a 12-year old girl with a nylon shot-bag round from a shotgun. This officer had previously been involved in beating to death a homeless, mentally ill man, James Chasse.

According to a Nov 24 article in *The Oregonian*,"Portland police rally to support officer in beanbag shotgun case" the hundreds of police that attended the rally wore t-shirts that read "I Am Chris Humphreys".

In this way the Portland Police have collectively said, explicitly, "I would do the same as Chris Humphreys has done." They have told us to consider all of them as the sort of person who would fire sometimes-lethal rounds at an unruly 12-year old and stand around talking with each other while a homeless mentally ill guy they just gang-stomped lies dying on the pavement.

As far as I know, the Red and Black are the only one's who have taken the cops at their word. Good on them. I'm going to make a point to drop by their establishment more often.
