  1. Hence the three charges against the one officer that was outside and shooting blindly. Based on the lack of other charges it appears that none of his rounds struck Ms. Taylor. So it would appear all rounds came from the officers breaching. Was talking with a former US Marshal (and state judge) Friday night. He indicated that after they lost some Marshals in shootouts and after analyzing that situation and other shootings involving drive-bys, etc. that the training was changed for LEOs. He indicated that old training was to line up the sights - like lining up rifles - and fire very precisely. But was slow and ineffective when the other side relied on lots of shots without the precise aiming. So training changed he said in the late 70s or around then. He indicated LEOs are trained to respond without using the sites and engage with multiple rounds. From videos I have seen, including one with a stop in Louisville in May where an officer is hit at point blank range in the shoulder, LEOs fire at least 4 rounds when forced to engage. They do not fire 1 or 2 if they have to fire. Those in LEO business - is this correct?
  2. Rick Gore who has a channel on Youtube and today he spends 45 minutes breaking down the actual warrant. His channel is Good Luck America. He is an ex-cop in Texas. He is sarcastic, hard on cops, and hard on groups that cops have to deal with and hard on the suspected criminals. But he gives an interesting analysis of the actual warrant. He is critical of it in a lot of ways. It ends with the comments that if you shoot at cops - even in your house - they will shoot back.
  3. Not liking the set up here. Especially after Friday night in Fern Creek.
  4. About 200 of Miami yards came on the first two plays of the 3rd and another one later in the game. Three long plays where the DBs were not executing assignments. Three "gimmee" touchdowns of over 50 yards each are hard to overcome.
  5. Louisville needed a score before half. Now it could be another Miami score before half.
  6. An investigation into what should be standard procedure.
  7. And then there is this: https://thehill.com/policy/healthcare/515558-astrazeneca-vaccine-trial-paused-to-investigate-a-potentially-unexplained "AstraZeneca is one of three companies that have phase three coronavirus vaccine trials ongoing in the United States. Two other trials are being conducted for potential vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna." Never has there been a vaccine for a corona virus and there are no RNA/DNA vaccines approved in the US.
  8. Erlanger out. Boyle in. 25% capacity. No COVID testing. Danville in. But with every three week COVID testing. What a wild night so far for Kentucky HS football.
  9. Send your love and care to KHSAA and Mr. Tackett if you want want high contact sports in the fall. After developing three very reasonable approaches, they are now back on the hot seat.

    I talked to people in Houston this afternoon. They were not too worried or focused on the storm. Seems they expected it to stay east of the the Houston area.
  11. In terms of the young people impact - A positive test may still qualify as "not affected" if the person is asymptomatic and has no ill effects. It would be interesting to get a metric of the positives as to how many were asymptomatic and never developed an illness. They may have been exposed, fought it off and never would have known about it without a mandatory test in those cases. The college tests provide a good "snapshot" since the test covers 100% of the potential sample population. At best, the current statewide numbers are grabbing about 1% of the potential sample population each week. Also we know the criteria for the college tests - its mandatory. The criteria for test in the state-wide numbers is unknown. Even age break out of the tests is unknown or not published. Very nebulous specific on the thing that actually drives the numbers - tests.
  12. Actually the positive rate of the tests - that may map multiple tests over a period of time to the same person. Also, its unknown how the population of tests are generated. But I bet most people assume this "positivity rate" is just the percent of PEOPLE positive in an area since they assume "cases' == "people". This was clearly heard last night during the JCPS board meeting. These university test results, where the criteria for testing is known, are giving a much clearer view of the real world. Its hard to say what picture the state-wide "cases" and "PR" number mean at all without understanding the details of the underlying tests criteria.
  13. https://www.al.com/news/2020/08/alabama-updates-covid-19-testing-results-for-college-students.html To date, more than 75,000 students attending colleges in Alabama have been tested through the GuideSafe program. Those tests have yielded a 0.75 percent rate of positivity or approximately 563 students, ... Notre Dame, conversely, tested nearly 12,000 students before returning. Only 0.28 percent (33 students) were positive, Notre Dame announced the day classes began Aug. 10. These seem to be the 'real' positivity rates - less than 1%. Not 3, not 5, not 7 or 10% of the overall population, but less than or around 1% are coming up positive (but likely asymptomatic in most cases). These university testing efforts are yielding much more accurate picture of this "pandemic" than any other numbers it seems.
