It's this part right here that disgusts me:

"Metro Transit spokesman Jeff Switzer confirmed Wednesday that Kirkpatrick was cleared of any wrongdoing stemming from the accusation, but said the incident prompted the agency to send a bulletin to all drivers clarifying they were not to wear personal body cameras while working."

So, the driver was exonerated only because he went beyond his job description to protect himself, and the response of the employer is to clarify in policy that employees aren't allowed to do that.

Yes, really. I can probably dig up the Policy Bulletin that they sent out.

And, yes, it's vile. Basically, "The Police Division within the Transit Department is more important than the drivers."

Isn't that like pulling Hogan's Heroes because of the swastikas?
The 1980s series set in rural Georgia caught up in Confederate flag controversy.

So, just on a whim, I read the opinion on State v. E.J.J., which seemed a fairly straightforward "obstruction of justice" case, which the State Supreme Court overturned because telling the police you disagree with their actions is protected by the First Amendment, even if you use naughty words and refuse to go somewhere the police can't hear you.

Then I got to the concurring opinion by Justice González. Hot damn! Freedom, suckers! Liberty! This guy has got words for those that would tell people not to criticize the police to their face, especially brown people. I'm pretty sure I voted for him last time, but Justice González definitely has my vote next time around.

I'd love to see a double whammy here, with someone like Ida B. Wells. Sojourner Truth might be an interesting, if more controversial choice.

Sitting here during +Katie Miller​'s Jujitsu class, trying to be introverted. There's a six-year-old from the previous class behind me, playing a mobile game and giving a play-by-play in his outside voice.

It's starting to feel like there's a hidden conspiracy to create outrage fatigue, in preparation for a really big human rights abuse coming down the pike.

Oh, look. Project fi requires Flash.

Also, +Google, why doesn't Project fi have a Google+ page?

Rather than repeat what everyone else is saying, let's just consider this my global response to today's ruling.

This warning strikes me as just a teensy bit premature.

So, despite the inflammatory headline, I have to wonder what they're going to actually charge the perpetrator with. Improper disposal of an animal carcass? Littering? Because to be perfectly honest, if you decide that an animal has to be euthanized, a bullet between the eyes is a pretty humane way to go.
Kitsap Humane Society is seeking information about a pit bull mix found Monday tied to a tree and shot to death on a trail near Seabeck.

Does maturity assume the worst or the best of its fellows? Does it at least presume innocence in the face of incomplete information?

I presume that once a judge overrules the mental health professional and orders someone committed, that order will be served by the police, who will open fire on the subject until he complies.

Just to be clear here, CBS, you're upset because you can't display the ad embedded in your ad?

Just say no.  It won't stop until enough of us grow a ball and say HELL NO.  Everything the majority lets them have sets the new minimum "acceptable overreach" line.

Room was adequate, typical for a budget motel. Internet was solid, but slow. My biggest complaint was that there was a single ice machine for the entire massive complex. Overall, I'd say it was ok, but not worth the price premium over other budget motels.
