    Republicans voted 60 times for a full repeal of the ACA when Obama was in office. What happened?
  • Re: Way of Hadoken: v-trigger hado spam

    I've really been opting to save my meter until I have v trigger. I feel like it's ryu's best bet at playing sfv. In a lot of cases ryu's pressure just pushes people out of range when mid screen so I feel my best bet is to show I'm willing to full charge EX fireball off of canceled normals up close in order to keep things ambiguous. If I get them to the corner than I have more to work with due to less pushback. I've been a bit more successful trying to really just go ham when I activate.

    If DBFZ will get rollback based netplay(yeah right it's Japan) then they should actually hire known industry professionals who've succssfully implemented it in games....instead of trying to create their own version from the ground up. If KI and MKX(no clue about INJ2) can include these succesfully then why cant a Japanese company do it, they are so stuck in their ways and averse to risk taking.

    MKX seems to have locked the delay pretty high up, same with injustice 2. Online feels considerably different with the extra delay.

    An off-duty officer was wounded by "friendly fire" as police looked for suspects after a stolen vehicle fled police and crashed late Wednesday.

    The injured off-duty officer was treated at a hospital released on Thursday. The suspect was also treated, and released into police custody.


    At Barnes-Jewish Hospital early Thursday, Interim Police Chief Lawrence O’Toole told reporters the off-duty officer had come out of his home to help after the stolen car crashed nearby, and was hit in the crossfire between officers and suspects who had been in the car.

    But police now say the off-duty officer was shot by a fellow cop who did not recognize him as an officer, in a separate encounter away from the initial crash.

    According to a department summary of the incident released later Thursday, two officers who encountered the armed off-duty officer ordered him to the ground. He complied. When they recognized the off-duty officer, they told him he could stand up and walk toward them.

    Another officer just arriving at the scene saw the off-duty officer get up and, not knowing he was an officer, fired his weapon once at the man. He hit the off-duty officer in the arm, the department said.

    The Post-Dispatch first reported those details Thursday morning based on police sources with knowledge of the shooting. The department media office later confirmed them.

    The pursuit began downtown near the Dome at America's Center about 10 p.m. when license recognition equipment alerted police to a vehicle that had been stolen June 15 in Maryland Heights. Officers pursued the vehicle, a white sedan, and used spike strips at one point. Three people inside the stolen car then opened fire at the pursuing officers, striking police vehicles. The officers backed off but continued to follow the car.

    The department says the car crashed near the intersection of Park Lane and Astra Avenue, northwest of West Florissant Avenue and Riverview Boulevard. Three people inside fled the vehicle.

    Two officers, "fearing for their safety," fired at the suspects, striking one in the ankle, according to a department summary of the shooting.

    The off-duty officer heard the commotion and came out of his nearby home with his department-issued gun, police said. That's when he encountered fellow officers and was shot by one of them.

    The injured officer is 38 and has been with the department for 11 years. The officer who shot him is 36 and has been with the department for 8 years. Seven officers involved in the incident were placed on administrative leave, as is department policy after a shooting. The department's Force Investigative Unit is looking into the incident.

    Bet if he were white he wouldn't have eaten that bullet. :coffee:

    It happened here in long island around a few years back. The guy was killed, he was white. It was actually extremely similar to this case.

    Here's a link, Actually happened earlier than I thought.

    Not a Bernie fan really but I think this needs to be known.

    "Brady Toensing of Burlington, the man responsible for the claims filed to the U.S. attorney for Vermont, was a chairman for the Trump campaign in his state."
