Isn't this why a 12-year-old in Cleveland got shot on sight by police, and why said police never got indicted?
 
a 10 year old.  Cops with their adrenaline up can't tell the difference between a 10 year old and an adult?

Good questions. Chilling, when put all together:

--Do you agree that Gawker should have been barred from appealing both the verdict and the $140 million judgement before declaring bankruptcy and being forced to sell the company? As Gawker’s Tom Socca wrote yesterday, “The company was asking only to survive long enough to put the judgment before a higher court, on appeal. This is, supposedly, how the system works.”

--If you think “but Gawker outed Peter Thiel in 2007 and they posted other distasteful stories over the years too”, do you also think they should be punished for those posts in the court of law, even if they are considered protected speech?

--Do you agree with the variety of other lawsuits and legal threats that Gawker has endured from Peter Thiel’s lawyer that have nothing to do with the Hulk Hogan tape? Does it matter that those are garden variety libel suits that any first year law student can tell you are clearly protected by the First Amendment? Those cost Gawker millions in legal fees as well. If the Hogan suit failed, what if Gawker died by a thousand cuts instead, despite clearly being protected by the First Amendment?

--Do you think that because Gawker’s demise is something you agree with that the same thing won’t happen to newspapers you like in the future? Donald Trump has readily admitted to suing a former New York Times reporter – knowing he would lose – just to try to bleed him of money. Mother Jones spent millions in legal fees just to win a case against a vindictive billionaire in the early stages of litigation last year, only to see the billionaire turn around and start a fund million dollar for other people to sue members of the “liberal press.”

--Oh and by the way, the same law firm that Peter Thiel funded just sent threatening letters to Politico and the Daily Mail on behalf of Donald Trump’s wife Melania Trump and demanded they stop reporting on stories Trump considers false. Do you think they smell blood?

--Maybe you don’t have any sympathy for former Gawker editor AJ Daulerio, the author of the Hogan post, because of his tasteless and offensive joke that made headlines during the Hogan trial. But does that mean it’s perfectly fine for Thiel’s lawyers to bar Gawker from paying for the legal defense of Daulerio, and at the same time, freezing his personal bank account so that he has no money to hire his own lawyer? Should he be forced to defend himself in court without a lawyer?
Some questions for those who are cheering Gawker's demise

Hits a bit close to home. The first time in decades that my friend's father went to see a doctor was when he tripped in the kitchen and broke both his legs in the fall. Turns out the reason for his bones being so fragile was that several tumors had been eating away at them, and also metastasized to several organs.

I'm sorry, did I blow your mind?
Introduction
I'm a Japanese-American Christian IT guy who (now on rare occasion) plays the violin. That should cover the majority of people who actually know me or know who I am.

For those who are familiar with Myers-Briggs personality types, one online survey scored me as INFP.

Other interests include progressive politics and video games. I do translation work on occasion, but my off-the-clock productivity is about the same as Piro from MegaTokyo-- as in, busy with other stuff to the point where productivity hurts.

My commenting/posting policy:
  • Keep it respectful, keep it cool: I reserve the right to uncircle or block people for most Bad reasons-- generally, being nasty to me personally or to friends of mine. I don't block often, as the G+ community tends to be respectful. Obvious TOS violations (spamming and the like) will be reported. Be warned that while I respect conviction of worldview or belief, I don't respect people who expect everyone to agree with them!
  • No crazy stuff: I have little patience for conspiracy theories or anything that's similar. I do try to keep an open mind (and often fail), but it's been said that "arguing with a conspiracy theorist is like wrestling with a pig-- after a while both of you are dirty and the theorist is enjoying it!" What's a conspiracy theory? Anything that tries to present an "alternative viewpoint" despite all the evidence to the contrary. Apollo mission hoax, that sort of thing. (I might refine that definition, but it'll do for now)
  • This isn't Twitter or Facebook. There is no need to post an empty follow-up that revises your earlier comment or post-- just edit the post. If you're revising an argument in debate, use strikethrough (minus before and after). Flooding someone's notifications is an indication that you're more impatient than accurate; take your time and organize your thoughts. If the discussion gets away from you, start a post and follow up! Also, engage with your friends! Talk to them! Share something you found funny and yuck it up! If you've got a smartphone or laptop with a camera, go join a Hangout! (Note to self: explore hangouts) If you expect G+ to automatically make you visible to your new friends, I'm afraid you'll find this as exciting as the journalists who expected people to drop everything and talk to them and declared G+ a "ghost town".

I've had horrible experiences with the online and phone ordering systems-- the orders would be cancelled with or without notice and without even a proper attempt to charge my credit card, without a suitably reasonable explanation. The visit to this store the other day would represent my fifth attempt to order service from T-Mobile, after 4 aborted attempts online and over the phone, and the difference is like night and day. The staff here was very helpful and courteous, clearly explaining what they had to offer and how much it would cost. Additionally, they were very patient with my mom and me-- we are very finicky shoppers-- and after an hour or so we had a 2-line family plan and 2 smartphones. So the answer to frustration online or over the phone is to go to this T-Mobile shop! If you have a few dollars to spare, buy a few accessories, because you can get a reasonable deal here (if you can't afford it, shop around on Amazon). I'm going from a grandfathered Verizon plan to 2 lines at the same price, plus a chunk of change more for a couple of new smartphones. After 2 years, I'll probably have a far better deal than I ever had with Big Red.

Took in a neglected pickup for repair; within 3 hours Anthony and Khang identified the problem, and 2 hours later it was fixed and ready to go. I knew it was going to be a costly repair when he said "fuel pump" because the pump is inside the gas tank, but the repair cost was very reasonable. They even showed us what happened to our fuel pump after 10 months of neglect. Courteous, fast, affordable service. Definitely one of the best in the area.

"Cafe" is an odd pick for a name, as this is much more like a fish and chip shop with some upscale additions to the menu. They have the local Granville Island Ale/Lager on tap, no doubt from the brewery right across the street-- the ale was well-balanced: not too hoppy, not too malty, and a great complement to the fish and chips. If you get anything here, get the seafood platter, which is a little of everything plus some garlic butter sauce. I don't know if the chef went to the nearby culinary school, but if she did, it certainly shows. The food was fantastic: perfectly seasoned, neither over- nor under-done. It is a bit cramped, having 6 or 7 small tables plus a bar in a space where I would use 4 tables, but the food and excellent service are well worth it.

I'm a huge fan of snack-type bread,and 85c has some of the best selections this side of the Pacific-- including the Japanese bakeries. The savory bread is satisfyingly chewy and soft, and pastries are flaky and light-- sorry, no rustic loaves here to my knowledge. I have yet to find a roll or pastry I don't like here, and the service is quite good-- during the evening rush they will pre-wrap your selection to speed you on your way. My one complaint is with the location; the parking often gets crowded to a frightening degree, and even with the crowd controlled within fire safety code limits you cannot hear yourself think during rush hours. Nevertheless, that should give you a very good idea of the quality of food served here. Think Seinfeld's Soup Nazi without the Nazi. Next time I will try the coffee and amazing-looking cake. Yum.

Orenchi is the sister shop to a _yakitori_ place down in SoCal (Los Angeles, I think; I'll have to look them up). The Japanese _kodawari_ (obsession) spirit is strong here, because there is a limited amount of soup that can be served, and when that's gone, the restaurant closes. My friend and I ordered the "special" ramen, and I have to say that Google+ needs some more ranks in the "food" rating because this is easily a 5+. The soup is intensely flavored, rich in gelatin, yet perfectly balanced-- they said they spent hours prepping the stuff, and they are most certainly not joking. I was very sorry I had a burrito earlier that day. The staff are very friendly despite heavily accented English, but I bet all of them are from Japan, because the servers both worked quickly and made sure that every need was met (yes, you will wait for the ramen-- it looks like the chef handles all the noodle orders). That, and they responded exactly as how a ramen shop would in Tokyo. Owing to the quality of the food, the place will be packed and _loud,_ guaranteed, from the second the place opens. Your best bet is to skip lunch and wait outside until they open. I'm surprised they're getting some low marks for decor, but I felt like I was in an old-school Japanese restaurant complete with the wood plank and _sumi_ ink menu. Okay, the place doesn't exactly lend itself to conversation, and the tables/chairs might be a bit wobbly, but the food has a way of rendering that irrelevant.

A colleague tried the miso, and I tried the _yatai_ special. Tasty soup, chewy noodles, and all the toppings you would expect from a ramen shop in Japan. The atmosphere was a bit dark, but I bet this would be a nice cozy spot for a date because the tables are candlelit. The servers are very friendly and accommodating; one knows fluent Japanese, which is definitely a plus (my colleague is originally from Japan).
