I never thought that Vandimion's place is near to Vritannis. :o
So when I read some preview about this episode, I was almost sure that Farnese' father had been seeking her.

The Vandimion are very rich. They can have, and surely they have, more than a house. They can have moved to this house because of the war or because of their business. And not necessarily every family member has moved here. Maybe just daddy dearest and the magnificent Magnifico. ;D

I get to wonder about what will happen to the Vandimion family once the Kushan armies attack...
Magnifico (are you sure that is not Magnifico?) will have to change his underwear. :P

Anyway thank you for the chapter Aazealh

Also, to be on topic, I wish I could hit some of the members here with a flashlight in order to subdue them.
You will be kicked out if you are white and you will get a four-day suspension if you are black. Hey if you are white Walter will have to pay you $ 1.600.000 for your moral damages afterwards :P :P :P :P :P :P ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

When I said that
Quote
also the question was never that they are right to do what they did
I did mean that the question was already resolved:they were found guilty and not even them did deny it. They did something worse: to defend themselves they did point the finger against a collegue of theirs. what they basically did was to say: If you did punish us so you should also punish likewise good old Willie Crook, but you didn't because he is black too. And that was the thing that granted them their rewards, not the fact that they were found not guilty because, apparently, eveyone did agree that they were

Generally speaking, that's true, but since we're talking about a specific case, am I to believe you've read the officer's minds and know what they were thinking? I do remember you judging them earlier in the thread, as if you had some special, magical insight into the situation. BTW, if my eyes were rolling any more, they'd spin out of my skull and start orbiting my head. Ouch, help, I can't see!!


I haven't read their minds, but neither have you and their comanding officier has some ideas about it too

Quote
Inglewood Police Chief Ronald Banks, who had disciplined the officers, called the awards "ridiculous".


also the question was never that they are right to do what they did but that they were punished ( they say) more harsly that their collegue that was of the same race as the suspect that was beated up.

Quote
Mr Morse was sacked and his partner, Bijan Darvish, who is also white, was suspended for 10 days for filing a police report that failed to mention his partner's conduct.

Mr Morse was twice tried for assault but the case was dismissed after juries failed to reach a verdict. Mr Darvish was acquitted of filing a false report.

'Nationwide impact'

The men filed "reverse discrimination" lawsuits, claiming a third officer, Willie Crook, who also allegedly hit Mr Jackson with a torch and failed to report the incident, received only four days' suspension because he is black.

Anyway, while I was researching this matter, I discovered an interesting message board full of cops talking about the same stuff. It's pretty interesting to read; what do you know, they're people just like us! ;)

http://www.policemag.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=818&whichpage=1
in the the same forum there is this warning too "message from the editor"
http://www.policemag.com/forum/default.asp

Oh , and a thing is an attempt to subdue someone that is resisting the arrest, another is beat up someone for the fun of it or because you are feeling "righteous" even if your victim is lucky enough not to end in a wheelchair

Yeah, but my point is, for all these incidents, every cop in the world risking their life just to do their job is to be held responsible and given a bad name? It's just another unfair stereotype. And most of the time these "serious incidents" usually boil down to people bitching, at least here in the states. If nobody is hurt seriously or killed, I'm inclined to side with the officers just on principle unless they were obviously out of line and abusing their power. All the bitching about cops doing their jobs just takes away from the people that have real cause for complaint.

But I find people tend to go the other way because they don't like speeding tickets. =)
True there are cops that risks their life and there are cops that take the bribe to look away. However the point is: they are paid to do their job, that it is to protect and serve and not to take the law in their hands and act like judge , jury and executioner. To arrest someone is fine, to beat him to a bloody pulp because you have a badge is not. You have the duty to protect even those that you arrest. The more so because they are in your charge.The cop that cannot accept that, that thinks that he is dirty Harry or that he is "the law" has nothing to do with the force. I can be wrong but I think that the cops tha we are discussing about fall in the late category.

The point, SaiyajinNoOuji, is that here we are not in the army and people join a forum for the fun of it. If you are too strict, people just will not join anymore and those that have joined already will leave.And a forum where there are only an handful of members that post only "serious , intelligent, and well thought things" is a forum that is dying and fast. And wanna bet that the ones that will less accept those strict rules wil be the ones that now are asking for them ?

Shootin' the Breeze / What D&D Character Are You?
« on: January 01, 2005, 10:58:02 PM »
http://neppyman.irulethe.net/dndwho/

I am :

Chaotic Evil Elf Monk Ranger
Follower Of Talos

Alignment:
Chaotic Evil characters are the most 'evil' people out there. They are willing to do anything to get ahead, and will kill anyone who stands in their way. A chaotic evil person sees no value in order and governments, and believes to the utmost in the tenant that 'Might Makes Right'.

Race:
Elves are the eldest of all races, although they are generally a bit smaller than humans. They are generally well-cultured, artistic, easy-going, and because of their long lives, unconcerned with day-to-day activities that other races frequently concern themselves with. Elves are, effectively, immortal, although they can be killed. After a thousand years or so, they simply pass on to the next plane of existance.

Primary Class:
Monks are strange and generally not understood by the world at large. They live apart from people, and follow strict codes that restrain their behavior and lifestyle. They have an exceptionally calm outlook on life, and generally do not resort to violence unless absolutely necessary. Even when they do, their code of conduct forbids the use of all weapons - except their hands. As such, monks are extremely skilled at hand-to-hand combat, and no other style.

Secondary Class:
Rangers are the defenders of nature and the elements. They are in tune with the Earth, and work to keep it safe and healthy.

Deity:
Talos is the Chaotic Evil god of storms, forest fires, earthquakes, tornadoes, and destruction in general. He is also known as the Destroyer. His followers fear him more than worship him, and they revel in the destructive fury of nature - while praying to be spared from its wrath. Talos's symbol is three lightning bolts, of different colors, coming from a central point.

It's too bad, let's just hope he'll come back, for this board' sake. I think he will.

Moron.

There are quite a few people I don't like, here. Quite a few stupid things I've read. Especially in the last couple of years. I could still deal with all that.
But if we've reached the point where most people think you actually belong in these forums, I'm out. It's that simple.
Like also Aazealh said things are not that simple. He (Olivier) was more angry towards the members that supported Pl than towards PL himself. To him that someone could think of PL like a member here was the sign that this forum was gone to the dogs. And that point not change even if PL himself has been banned

Since it wasn't announced in Friday's YA, we know that It will not be the 14 of Jan, so that pushes it to the next publication January 28, as the very earliest that we may see an episode. So it is only known that it will be no shorter than Jan 28.



It's not sure. :'(
Thank you. But did they tell something more about the reasons of this, aside :
As a matter of fact, Miura's got a bad health at the moment, he's been too concerned about Berserk these days, from what Young Animal announced.
that are the same things that I would say if I would skip a day at work...so I am a little suspicious that they could be hiding something
