police lives matter

"It was definitely lesson learned," Brown said. "We didn't want to have two leads in back-to-back games and lose. Coach made a great call at the end of the game going from man to zone. We executed and came out with the 'W.'"

Of course,burberry outlet, Chaney also is the first to admit Arkansas remains far from where it wants to be as the Razorbacks (6-6) prepare to wrap up the season by playing Texas (6-6) in the Texas Bowl. And one of the areas he’s hoping the Hogs can improve during bowl practices is how much it accomplishes in the second half after the Razorbacks were shut down after the break in its 21-14 loss to Missouri on Nov. 28.

Thanks to Krista Van Laan's now-available opus "Frank Delos Wolfe: California Prairie Architecture" (Archives and Architecture,www.burberryoutlet.click, 222 pages, $39.95), those of us with an unending thirst for details concerning the history of our region will at last be sated. This San Jose author,httP://www.burberryoutlet.click, with the aid of 200 photographs, relates the tale of an architect with a keen vision whose legacy is worthy of our attention.

A Facebook meme the other day caught my eye because it included a picture and summary of a Pekin,a board member and chairman o,burberry factory outlet, Illinois, police case.The site that created the meme was making the same point that occurred to those of us in the newsroom right away ? namely,burberry outlet online, that Brandon Meinders is pretty lucky to be alive.Meinders is the 20-year-old Manito,seem to enjoy the playful, Illinois,and we can't worry about that or try to get ahead of ourselves,burberry scarf, man who fought two police officers, a firefighter and a paramedic after his recent shoplifting arrest in a Pekin store.Meinders struggled to grab a police sergeant?s Taser from his belt, admitting afterward that he had been trying to grab the gun. Yet Meinders lived to be booked into jail with a variety of charges.Meinders is luckier than many who had some kind of altercation with authorities and didn?t live to see jail time.Meinders is white, yes. Also, his alleged misdeeds took place in a community that has a good and professional police force. Pekin is not the kind of town where police expect to have to shoot anyone.It?s worth asking what the public reaction would have been if police had shot Meinders. It?s very easy to argue that the things he is accused of doing are comparable to the actions attributed to Michael Brown in Ferguson and Eric Garner in New York, and probably worse.Do people deserve to be shot for stealing things? How about for attacking officers? How about for grabbing for their weapons?Does it matter what color the person is?The Facebook meme showed several people who had been involved in altercations with police. All the white people were arrested, and all the black people were shot. It?s just a meme. Yet it?s worth thinking about, isn?t it?I understand the mantra ?black lives matter? and I also understand ?police lives matter,? but the way I?d say it is ?all lives matter.?Maybe we can all agree on a few things:1. Behave in such a way that the police have no reason to confront you.2. If the police do confront you for some reason,SACRAMENTO, comply with their demands. It sucks, sure, but your lawyer can sort it out later.3. Even if you end up being confronted by a bad cop ? because yes, we all know they exist ? don?t fight back. Just don?t. Period.4. Body cams would go a long way toward protecting good officers and exposing bad ones.5. Police sometimes have to make split-second decisions, and sometimes they will make the wrong ones, because they are human. We need to recognize that.6. There?s nothing wrong with questioning why black suspects seem to be taking the brunt of bad decisions.Page 2 of 2 - 7. People who would have been upset if Meinders had been shot but who think Brown and Garner had it coming should stop insisting they aren?t racist. Go shave your head, learn to goose-step, buy a copy of ?Mein Kampf? and be done with it.Pekin Daily Times editor Michelle Teheux may be reached at mteheux@pekintimes.com.

I thought something was wrong, but one of my co-workers said they always wash up this time of year, he said. The next day the tide had pulled them back in.
