    [–] Officials: Millbury teacher fired after bullets fall out of pocket during pre-K class StreetSharksRulz 1 points ago in news

    Agreed I'd def check into it but raiding the guy's house seems like a huge overstep for what is likely a mistake

    [–] Officials: Millbury teacher fired after bullets fall out of pocket during pre-K class StreetSharksRulz 2 points ago in news

    I'd agree it's not 100% safe, but it would take some absolute freak accident to set off a round accidentally. You're probably more likely to be injured driving to work than an accident with ammunition in your pocket.

    Call me crazy but I don't think the police should have been searching his home in the first place. He had some bullets he forgot in his pockets from going to the range. What did they think his big evil plan was, to throw them at people?

    [–] Tesla Sentry Mode captures politician in Model 3 hit-and-run StreetSharksRulz 28 points ago in news

    What? If you hit someone's car and there's any chance of damage you at least leave a note with your contact information. "It's just a scratch"? When you mess up a strangers property it's not really your choice on whether or not they want it fixed back to how it was before you messed it up. People who hit other cars and drive off are dirtbags.

    This is like...being an adult 101

    [–] I think I'll sleep in... StreetSharksRulz 2 points ago in funny

    Uh...no unless the rounds are specifically designed to not penetrate a bullet has more penetration power. You're thinking of hollow point pistol rounds which are specifically designed to mushroom out to impart as much kinetic force as possible to a target. A regular FMJ (a pretty standard round) will make an arrow look quaint.

    [–] Uber driver burglarized home after dropping couple off at San Francisco airport, police say StreetSharksRulz 25 points ago in news

    That really doesn't change or prove anything.

    The headline could be "Man's dick ripped off by laptop cable"

    Him - "Your dicks not going to get ripped off by your laptop cable. Don't be paranoid."

    You - "OMG DID YOU EVEN READ THE HEADLINE!"

    Just because something happens once doesn't mean it's not an insanely unlikely event.

    [–] Prosecutors want prison time for Felicity Huffman and other parents who pleaded guilty in college admissions scam StreetSharksRulz 7 points ago in news

    I wish I could reach through the computer and spray people like you with a water bottle like a misbehaving pet. Quit jamming trump shit into every conversation, it makes you look stupid.

    [–] Prosecutors want prison time for Felicity Huffman and other parents who pleaded guilty in college admissions scam StreetSharksRulz 7 points ago in news

    Honestly I don't think that's entirely fair. White people with power and influence do go to jail, absolutely at a much lower rate (which I think has more to do with their access to much better legal counsel), but not anywhere close to "never".

    As a bit of a thought experiment if the punishment for stealing was getting your hands cut off is the solution to not only chop off the hands of the people stealing bread but also the people embezzling money from their companies or to push for a more just punishment for everyone?

    [–] Prosecutors want prison time for Felicity Huffman and other parents who pleaded guilty in college admissions scam StreetSharksRulz 19 points ago in news

    I might be on board with 1 year, don't get me wrong I think she should be punished in such a way that it is an actual punishment and not an inconvenience. I just think the idea of 20 years in prison should be reserved for absolutely heinous acts or genuinely dangerous people. I also don't think doing something nonsensical or unjust to someone rich because it happens to someone poorer is sensible. The end goal is to do the reasonable thing regardless of who it is, and making it "fair" by just treating everyone equally poorly, while temporarily satisfying, is moving in the wrong direction.

    [–] Prosecutors want prison time for Felicity Huffman and other parents who pleaded guilty in college admissions scam StreetSharksRulz 5 points ago in news

    What? Your solution to ending mass incarceration is also sending well off white people to jail too just to make it fair? That seems....not entirely logical.

    [–] Prosecutors want prison time for Felicity Huffman and other parents who pleaded guilty in college admissions scam StreetSharksRulz 3 points ago in news

    Good thing there are sensible people to keep people with revenge boners in check. She cheated to get her kid into college, she didn't kill someone. Give her a giant ass fine that really hurts her financially, maybe a small amount of time in a county jail and a ton of embarrassing community service.

    [–] Prosecutors want prison time for Felicity Huffman and other parents who pleaded guilty in college admissions scam StreetSharksRulz 121 points ago in news

    I mean...do you think most of the rest of her life spent locked in a cage is fair for cheating to get her kid into a college? That seems fucking insane to me honestly. Like cheating to get into a school is a shitty thing to do and it should be punished but 20 years in a tiny cell? That seems absolutely barbaric.

    [–] Mother of girl who died after school fight says she'd complained of bullying in the past StreetSharksRulz 1 points ago in news

    It's absolute lunacy. It's a 10 year old and people are calling for 10 years to life in a cage. I'm absolutely certain this kind of bullying and being a little shit goes on thousands and thousands of times a day in the U.S., the only difference is this kid had the shitty luck of it leading to a freak accident. If we locked up everyone who was a shitty bully at 10 years old we'd have entire prisons full of children.

    These type of justice boner people are gross. You're absolutely right, these are the type of people who would get excited watching someone suffer and who'd have no problem with people getting their hands chopped off for stealing if they lived outside the 1st world.

    [–] Mother of girl who died after school fight says she'd complained of bullying in the past StreetSharksRulz 1 points ago in news

    She pushed someone and they hit their head on a bookcase she didn't fucking stab her to death. What the hell is wrong with you people? 10 years, life?!?, Sending the parents of prison? A bunch of fucking lunatics in this thread. She's a shitty 10 year old who was picking on someone and pushed them not god damn ted Bundy. Move her to a different stricter school, mandatory psychological treatment (both to make sure she's not a danger and to mitigate the trauma of accidentally killing someone), maybe a child protective services investigation of the parents and if it turns out bad move her to a new home.

    She's a 10 year old who was picking on someone and there was a tragic accident. She needs to be disciplined and given treatment not locked in a fucking cage you savages.

    [–] 3 American service members killed in car bombing near Afghanistan's Bagram Airfield StreetSharksRulz 1 points ago in worldnews

    No they're backwards because they believe in religious law (99% of afghans), believe women are property (94% say a woman must always obey their husband), hate gay people (99% said it was morally unacceptable), support honor killings (80%), support killing people for leaving Islam (79%), support murdering adulterers (85%), and doing things like cutting off people's hands or whipping for theft (81%).

    Or that a large portion of the country is run by a group (who used to be their government) who banned women from attending school and used to have mandatory attendance to executions where they would bury someone up to their neck in a soccer stadium and bludgeon them to death with rocks.

    This isn't even considering they are near the bottom of the list on nearly every single metric of human development.

    Unless you don't think that stuff makes the culture a little backwards? I'm sure you'd love to live there right?

    [–] Speed limit increases are tied to 37,000 deaths over 25 years StreetSharksRulz 6 points ago in news

    Uhhh don't do that you dummy. I don't care how "great" you are at driving going 100 doubles your stopping distance and cuts your response time by 25-40%.

    You're turning a potentially bad crash into an absolutely lethal crash. The amount of force of a car going 100 vs 65 is 230%.

    So, 2.3x the force, 1/2 the stopping distance and 2/3rds the reaction time. There's absolutely no reason that the typical highway speed can't get you where you need fast enough.

    No I just don't like racists. You seem to be ok with it as long as it's racism against the right people.

    [–] Maybe the T wouldn’t have to raise fares if... StreetSharksRulz 3 points ago in boston

    I'm fine with that as long as the taxes to pay for it are collected in a fair way. If you have reasonable access to the T, you pay slightly more.

    It seems unfair to have people with little to no access to the T paying for everyone who does.

    [–] Maybe the T wouldn’t have to raise fares if... StreetSharksRulz 1 points ago in boston

    Not trying to be a dick but it's not "thinking about it that way" it's just...is. There really isn't any other way to "think about it". State money comes from your taxes and is then spent. If, say $20M is spent on the T, $20M of Massachusetts residents money is spent on the T. The only difference is that it'll be cheaper for the people that take the T and people who don't take the T (by choice or they aren't anywhere near it). Essentially people with access to the T will be getting a discount paid from the pockets of those that choose not to or don't have access to the T.

    If you think that is what's right, then that's fine.

    [–] University of Kansas to offer ‘Angry White Male’ course StreetSharksRulz 16 points ago in news

    I mean...no shit? It's the equivalent of talking about the stereotype of angry black men and then yelling "See!" When a black person gets angry.

    "Whiny women 101" oh look, women are complaining. Told ya.

    You see why that's fucking stupid?
