Sorry to say, but EDS had a couple of chances to turn things around and spurned them.

M.

Can you provide any details of these missed chances?

Cop told gun involved.  That became his mindset and he was locked into it.  A truck became a gun because that's what he was looking for.  No excuse, though.  Cops need better training.
Keep telling yourself training will fix this.  I don't think it will.


Have been to the range when cops are shooting, this doesn't surprise me at all.  My experience is that cops are the worst, most irresponsible gun handlers I have ever been around.

I really wish I could disagree with you about this. Most cops are not "gun people" and do just the bare minimum training and qualification.

For what it's worth, I'm hearing this was actually an accidental shooting.
Accidental? He fired 3 times!

My guess is that adrenaline kicked in.  The victim is lucky the cop didn't empty the gun.  Time for better training....and better physical conditioning.

I have a full time job and I am adjunct at three cc. two of them are close to my full time job place. One of them is about 20 mile. I teach every day, and finish my day about 10 pm. Of course its hard work and exhausting, but I love what I am doing. I teach the same classes in all of these cc, so basically I have one prep every week.  

I'm not sure if you'd mind sharing, but since this is a hot topic on here, do you do all of the adjuncting on top of a full-time job in order to make ends meet, or is the adjuncting a nice way to get cash on the side doing something you enjoy? In case you haven't seen it, there was even a discussion of whether there is such a thing as "cash on the side", or whether all income must be seen as equally vital.


Not to speak for the poster, but exhaustion is not pleasant, and saying you love your teaching is expected in order to be seen as competent at it.
The question what is 'cash on the side' goes along with full time income losing ground in real dollars over the last couple decades.

I do think that whether or not Clinton And Kaine win, the 2018 Campaign Congressional primaries could be very  punishing for moderate Democrats. Some  Sanders voters may be feeling the Bern for a while.

Although I wouldn't push too hard on the contract, do investigate why you can't just have a PDF sooner.

I can't do links on my phone, but the planned fart-in by Sanders supporters at the DNC is the funniest thing I've heard of in a long time.
