    The Seattle Seahawks should sell officially licensed pressure gauges to their fans and their defensive players should attached them to their pads or uniforms during the game to do some spot checks.

    Belichick has now been caught cheating twice. I can only imagine how much other illegal stuff he and Brady have been getting way with for the past 15 years. He should never make the Pro Football HOF because of this.

    While I am sure the NFL will never vacate any NE wins or championships, fans, writers and football historians should discount them as tainted.

    Beverly Johnson claims she went to Cosby’s home. She has not even proven she ever met him.

    I also find her claim that she took one sip of the coffee and knew it was drugged and then took another sip rather odd.

    She provided no date of the alleged incident and had no acting roles for about 5 years before and 5 years after the mid 1980s when she places the incident. It seems strange that she would even be on Cosby’s radar at that time.

    I also think it strange that she would believe there would such an intense and personal casting process to basically be a glorified extra on one episode.

    I wouldn’t be shocked if some of his accusers are telling the truth, but I don’t find her to be very credible.

    There were 2 independent eyewitnesses who saw Sandusky buggering boys in the shower. Many of his victims filed police reports soon after the abuse. Eight of them testified under oath and were cross examined. His own adopted son was also prepared to testify that Sandusky abused him.

    He admitted to showering naked with a boy in 1998 and also made incriminating comments in media interviews.

    There were mountains of credible evidence against Sandusky.

    In the Sandusky case there was at least one independent eyewitness and his victims testified under oath and were cross examined by Sandusky’s attorneys. After that a jury of his peers unanimously found him guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

    If people can’t see the difference between that and people making allegations on “The View”, I don’t know what to say.

    Also, these women were adults at the time they claim they were raped. That makes them for less easy to manipulate and far more capable of filing timely police reports and having physical evidence than the boys Sandusky was buggering.

    Cosby could well be guilty of many of the charges, but to date, no evidence has been presented.

    The biggest difference is that in the NM case the cops KNEW he was armed, had made threats to murder them and had a long history of violent attacks on civilians and LEOs. The only mistake those cops made was not shooting the armed, dangerous criminal about 3 hours and 55 minutes earlier.

    Cops who hesitate against armed people making threats will often end up dead cops. No time to be nice and understanding with sociopaths whose lives not only have zero value, but have negative value.

    I didn’t say he must be innocent. I said there is no evidence he is guilty. If I claimed you drugged and raped me 10 years ago but provided no evidence that I even ever met you, I never filed a police report and couldn’t even say the date, do you think it would be fair for everyone to assume you are guilty?

    When and if I see some strong, corroborating evidence I will believe he is guilty.

    It is never OK to rape a woman. However when a woman is a lap dancer who attends wild sex orgies at the Playboy mansion, her unsubstantiated claims of rape carry a lot less credibility than those of say a school teacher who says she was raped while jogging in the park.

    While I agree that it is totally possible for a rich, famous, popular man who can get it for free or afford to buy it, to be a serial rapist why have none of his accusers provided any evidence?

    To the best ig my knowledge none have provided:

    Rape kits
    DNA evidence
    Toxicology reports
    Police reports from the time of the alleged crimes.
    Eyewitness testimony
    Video evidence
    Audiotaped confessions

    I don’t think most have even provided:

    Specific dates and times
    Any evidence that they ever even met Cosby, much less that he drugged them and raped them

    It seems odd to me that 15 plus accusers can’t seem to come up with a shred of evidence, other than their unsworn, un cross examined statements.

    >>>You are so wrong it is laughable, if an Ordinary Citizen accidentally shot a COP, HE/SHE Would be PROSECUTED, GUARANTEED. He should be charged with Attempted Murder of a Police Officer. I do not believe in SPECIAL RIGHTS for anyone, and I am not necessarily anti-cop. They should at least be held to the same standards as everyone else.

    Why do you believe in Special Rights??<<<

    Please cite me ONE case where an ordinary citizen who had a negligent discharge and injured only him or herself was charged with ATTEMPTED MURDER.

    When you factor in the fact that this was in a gun shop, and while it isn’t smart, it is natural to assume the guns are unloaded, there is no way a civilian would be criminally charged, if nobody else was injured. If somebody was injured the clerk would probably be at more risk of prosecution than the customer.

    Ordinary citizens who injure others, through negligent discharges, are sometimes, but not always charged with crimes.

    An ordinary citizen would NOT be prosecuted for shooting his/her own finger in a gun shop. It is more likely the employee would be charged for handing the person the loaded gun, but that probably wouldn’t happen either.

    Please drop the anti cop bias. He didn’t “attempt” to kill or injure anybody. He acted stupidly and accidentally injured himself.

    If the cop or an ordinary citizen had shot one of the customers in the store, charges would be filed.

    >>>Unloaded guns are just as dangerous as loaded ones.

    Of course that’s a 1970’s meme I learned from my parents. But it echoes in my head anytime a gun is present so it serves its purpose.<<<

    I have also heard that most accidental/negligent shootings are with “unloaded” guns.

    The first thing you do when picking up or being handed any gun is check to see if it is loaded, (while pointing it in a safe direction). That is true, whether it was handed to you at the range, by a gun shop employee, or if you pulled it out of the gun safe it has been sitting “unloaded” in for 6 months.

    “I didn’t know it was loaded!” in an indictment on the person who had a negligent discharge. Of course you knew it was loaded. ALL guns are loaded. You can know a gun is not loaded (if you check), but you can never not know it was loaded.

    He doesn’t belong in prison for dong something stupid, though I guess you could argue reckless endangerment. If he had shot the customers to his left, instead of his own finger he would deserve jail time, though.

    The gun shop employee also shares responsibility and may be even more culpable than the cop. While it is stupid and foolish to ASS/U/ME (you know what Felix Unger says happens when we do that) that a gun handed to you by a gun shop employee is unloaded, it really ALWAYS should be the case.

    There was negligence in allowing the loaded gun to get into the display case, then negligence in the employee not checking to see if it was loaded, and then finally the cop was negligent in violating rules 1, 2 and 3 of gun safety.

    I seriously doubt the cop was fired for having only 9 1/2 fingers. I’m sure they would have given him some sort of desk duty if he couldn’t do normal police work with half a digit missing, if he had been injured in a different manner.

    I suspect he was fired for some combination of having an extremely, negligent discharge, that COULD have killed an innocent person, and possibly for going gun shopping while on duty (unless he was on break at the time).

    My point is the officers did NOTHING WRONG. Boyd was a clear and imminent threat to their lives. The only error they made was in not shooting him much sooner.

    When violent felons make violent threats, and are armed, they should be given ONE opportunity to peacefully surrender and then shot if they refuse. Failing to do this is putting the lives of innocent police officers and civilians in undue danger.

    When you start threatening the lives of others, you have forfeited your right to live.

    You are pro violent thug. Did you read the violent, criminal record of the sociopath? It was only a matter of time before he murdered innocent people. Thank God the police officers ended this threat forever.

    Here is a timeline of James Boyd’s incarcerations and run-ins with police.

    Jan. 10, 2002: Boyd is charged with battery on a peace officer in Las Cruces.

    May, 2, 2002: He is sent to the state’s psychiatric hospital, the Behavioral Health Institute in Las Vegas, for forensic evaluation.

    Jan. 29, 2003: He is found competent to stand trial.

    July 17, 2003: He is sent back to Las Vegas for another forensic evaluation. Eight months later, February 2004, he is still found incompetent and continued treatment is ordered.

    July 7, 2004: He is returned to the Doña Ana County Judicial Complex for competency hearing and on Sept. 9 is found competent to stand trial.

    A month later, Oct. 20, 2004, he is involuntarily committed to the Las Vegas facility due to his mental illness and the case is dismissed.

    March 3, 2005: Boyd is arrested for assaulting a man on Civic Plaza, telling him: “I am God and I want to hurt you.” He is charged with assault and battery and taken to jail. On July 27, the charges are dropped.

    July 11, 2007: Boyd is arrested for disorderly conduct at Albuquerque Fire Station 1 on McKnight NW for pounding on doors and refusing to leave. He tells officers he is a government agent and keeps yelling that he will send them to prison and hell. He is arrested and taken to the Metropolitan Detention Center.

    July 15, 2007: While in jail, Boyd is informed that, because of an infraction, he is to be put on a 23-hour lockdown. He becomes violent and begins hitting a corrections officer in the chest. The officer sprays Boyd with pepper spray. Boyd is charged with battery on an officer and resisting an officer.

    Oct. 7, 2008: An order of commitment is filed to send Boyd to BHI in Las Vegas for treatment to competency so he can stand trial.

    March 2009: Boyd pleads no contest to battery and resisting arrest. He is sentenced to time already served.

    A month later, April 15, 2009: Boyd is arrested at St. Martin’s Hospitality Center after getting into a fight with another man and slitting that man’s face several times with a box cutter. Boyd is taken to MDC.

    June 18, 2010, while still in jail for the incident at St. Martin’s, Boyd uses a food tray to break three windows of his cell, causing over $1,000 in damage.

    August 2010: Boyd pleads no contest to aggravated assault in the St. Martin’s incident and no contest to the criminal damages charge. He is sentenced to 18 months, and gets credit for time already served.

    Dec. 21, 2010: Boyd is arrested after causing a disturbance in the public library Downtown. He becomes verbally abusive, resists officers’ attempts to arrest him, then begins fighting with officers, breaking the nose of one of them. He is booked into jail on two counts of battery on the police officers.

    March 15, 2011: While in jail for the battery charges, Boyd breaks the window of his cell by striking it with a dinner tray and threatens a correctional officer with physical violence. He is subsequently charged with criminal damage to property and assault on a peace officer.

    Aug. 19, 2011: Boyd argues with a fellow inmate and a guard. He breaks three windows in his cell and has to be subdued with pepper spray. He is charged with assault.

    October 2011: The charges from the dinner tray incident and from the St. Martin’s incident are dismissed due to mental incompetency.

    March 2012: The charges from the library incident are dismissed due to mental health issues.

    September 2012: Boyd is sent to BHI in Las Vegas for treatment to bring him to competency in connection with the assault from August 2011. Nearly a year later, August 2013, charges are dismissed after he is found incompetent.

    March 16, 2014: While illegally camping in the Sandia foothills, Boyd is involved in another confrontation with police. This one proves fatal.

    For all you James Boyd lovers and cop haters, here is Boyd’s history. It was only a matter of time before Boyd would have murdered a law enforcement officer or a civilian. And given the way the “justice system” treated him in the past, he most likely would have gotten away with the murder due to mental incompetency and been released to violently attack more innocent people.

    The world is a better and safer place, with this sociopath dead.

    The dead sociopath was only about 10 feet from the officers and was at the top of a berm. He could have closed that ground very quickly and to avoid that the officers could not afford to hesitate to shoot.

    He also easily could have taken a few steps over the top of the hill pulled a concealed gun and killed officers.

    If you don’t want to be shot by the cops don’t threaten to murder them and resist arrest while brandishing knives.

    You sound just like Reverend Al. Do you so think Michael Brown had his hands up and Tawanna Brawley was raped?

    You seem to be an “Al Sharpton conservative”.

    The idea that the lives of police or innocent civilians should be put at even the slightest risk to preserve the lives of violent felons who have made threats against innocent lives is a fairly new and extremely flawed idea. I think it started with the OJ Simpson chase.

    The scumbucket had a 20 year violent history, including attacks on officers, had threatened to kill the officers earlier in the incident, was brandishing 2 knives and disobeyed multiple orders to get on the ground.

    If you threaten to kill anyone, including cops, are armed, and refuse to surrender when rifles are pointed at you, you 100% deserve to die.
