4-plus years in prison for Minneapolis woman who killed man over $60

Minnesota has an interesting definition of manslaughter. Can't figure out how this isn't murder?

Witnesses say Simons called Pixley to the home, where she demanded that he pay her the $60 she felt was owed to her. Simons then pulled a knife and stabbed Pixley in the chest.

Officers determined that Simons "deals heroin out of the residence and gets mad about her money, her dope and people stealing from her," the charges read.


This is how Covid kills as well

One of my daughter's best friend's dad just passed away from injuries he received in a fall from a ladder. It took 3 days to get him the right medical care because of the backlog of Covid cases.

My daughter is pretty broken up about it.

Lawsuit claims Idaho Springs police staged crime after assault of elderly man


IDAHO SPRINGS, Colo. — The 75-year-old man who was allegedly assaulted by an officer with the Idaho Springs Police Department (ISPD) filed a lawsuit against officers and the department Monday morning. He claimed that police tased him, dragged his unconscious body out of his apartment, and took a sword from a high shelf in his unit and dropped it in the hallway.

In the federal lawsuit, Michael Clark claimed violations of his civil rights under federal and Colorado constitutions by two officers — Nicholas Hanning and Ellie Summers — and their supervising officer, Cpl. Richard Sonnenberg. Clark also sued the police department, claiming they failed to train and supervise the officers, and that they have unconstitutional practices and policies.

Sarah Schielke, Clark's attorney, said body camera footage captured the officers committing assault, burglary and kidnapping when they responded to Clark's Idaho Springs apartment in May 2021 after receiving a complaint that a man had punched a woman in the face. According to an affidavit, Idaho Springs police did not announce themselves when they knocked on Clark's door, did not warn him before using a Taser, and when they accused Clark of punching his neighbor, he claimed it was "absolutely false."

The affidavit was released a day after the attorney and Clark's family claimed in a press release that Hanning "tased, kicked, tackled, punched and choked" the unarmed and unclothed man in his apartment.

A completely off the rails police force. Their Cpl. reviewed the body cams and agreed to charge the old man with felony menacing for opening a door with a weapon in his hand at night without the cops even identifying themselves. He immediately complied with putting up the weapon (a swordfish bill), and was trying to explain his side of the story when he was Tased. They then dragged him out, rolled him onto his stomach with the barbs still in, put a knee to his neck, and planted the swordfish bill next to him.

The only thing holding a settlement down for actual damages is his age. This has basically ruined his life. The punitive damages - well the sky is the limit. The kicker - he is an active Mason. I wonder what his brothers think about his treatment. Also a jewel - the original complainant is a meth head with a record of lying to the police and other crimes and there was no evidence of being punched in the fashion she said. She later claimed he had a gun, and the cop tried to feed her the swordbill as the actual weapon.

My daughter received a summons for a rear end accident

An African American gentleman rear ended her when he failed to stop on an icy road. He has plead not guilty. I am having a tough time understanding why he is even being charged with anything. It was accident. Several other people had accidents on that road that weekend (not a great job by the city to treat it).

Does anybody else understand the point of criminal charges? He stayed and waited for the police. Information was exchanged. There is no deterrence value in pursuing it. He was not impaired, and it was not unreasonable under those conditions that he couldn't stopped.

She is reluctant to show up to testify (actually she is upset that the man was even charged with anything). It cost about $4K to fix her car. Her insurance company (my insurance company for 35 years and by father in laws insurance company for 50 years) probably ended up paying for it. That is the reason that I have given this company probably $100K over the years.

My wife had an accident several years ago in which she was at fault (failed to yield in a four way with no stop signs - yes no signs go figure). All she got was a citation - no court.

Video of White Power banners being draped in the House Chamber?

I could have sworn that I saw a video of this happening in the House chambers (I think it was the house). There were several banners draped from the gallery after the takeover. There was also a guide of the meaning of the symbols given by the poster

Does anyone remember this or did I dream it? I have not seen the video or stills from it since then.

This cop is still working even after a DUI, asking for special consideration

and calling a fellow LEO n___r.

Seems we learn nothing. It seems using his position to ask for special perks should have been a fireable offense (not to mention the DUI). It demonstrates ongoing corruption of the system.


“You couldn’t f------ give me the opportunity to park the car," he said. "No one reported it."

“The fact that you’re telling me that tells me you shouldn’t be an officer," the officer said.

A spokesperson for the Pinal County Sheriff's Office told KPNX that Navarrette was initially placed on modified duty. During that time, he was prohibited from driving a patrol car and rode with another deputy while taking regular calls for service.

As of Monday, however, the spokesperson said Navarrette returned to regular duty.

Pick the five best studio albums that appear sequentially for your favorite bands

Usually you can group 3 or so together, but working out the edges sometimes gets difficult. Other times it is pretty obvious.

For example for me the first five albums for R.E.M. and Led Zeppelin are their best albums. I hate giving up Automatic for the People but bridging to it goes through some weaker albums.

For other bands like Rush I have to chose between 2112 and Signals to make the five (ultimately 2112 is the classic Rush which I prefer).

For the Beatles you have Yellow Submarine sitting their blocking you from bringing Abbey Road into the top five. You aren't going to give up Revolver for example.

Couldn't Lady Gaga have found a larger peace dove pendant?

She did a nice job singing.

Did the NSA lawyer/mole successfully burrow in?

Haven't heard an update. Getting to the server with the Ukraine conversation should be high on State's agenda. We need to understand what happened to move forward in our foreign policy.

By the way what is seen might lead to a referral to the DoJ. Just saying.
