In Topic: Ant-Man

I don't really claim to be a huge super hero fan but...Ant Man? Is this a super hero that is supposed to be taken seriously? I mean as seriously as a super hero can be taken, that is.

And to top it off Paul Rudd? I love the guy in a comedy (support) setting, but a lead as a super hero? Called Ant Man?

A very successful one at that. Looks like there really isn't such a thing as bad publicity. This is the the thing that pisses me off the most about this thing - this game rose to greenlight top games only because of the scandal.

I thought I read somewhere (that I can't find now) that it was #7 on Greenlight -before- the "scandal"?

The links above really confirm what I said.

If indeed Police officers are more aggressive in certain areas even more reason to do this.


If a civilian is detained by the police for what ever reason the officer sees fit under the Law, you have to obey commands and do what he or she is saying to you.

You fate after being cautioned is down to you the individual.

Simply put, do as your told.

Aggravating maybe  a ###### off heavily armed  police officer is a bad idea and your asking for trouble. If indeed what you say Police are bad.

The kid who died from a so called choke hold, was resisting arrest in public on camera and in view for all to see, if he would have done as he was told he would be alive today simple.

I repeat what I said do as you are told by police officers.

I weep for society.

I have thought about this a lot this week The USA and its police force.

In the news here we have seen a couple of apparent brutal confrontations by police on civilians, that have led to civil deaths.

If you do make any comments in this or any other forum, beware of the facts.

I did some research and you must not believe all you read or hear in the news.

Law enforcement in any shape or form is a difficult job as it is and thankless for the most part, don`t make it even harder by confrontation.

My view.

I could not disagree more.

You advised everyone to "beware of the facts", may I ask what facts you are referring to? Being choked to death after advising this public servant that you can't breathe 11 times?

Regardless of what you're being detained for, the outcome of these incidents (that you failed to mentioned) that you are referring to were in no way justified. I'm not saying no action was needed, but in recent news we've seen at least two unarmed "perpetrators" and one minor armed with a pellet gun, killed by overly zealous law enforcement officers.

I know it's easy to play Monday morning quarterback and analyze a situation you can't even fathom being in, but these are highly trained specialists. This is their job and it's what they get paid to do and they should be skilled to do it. We all have our responsibilities at our place of employment and if we make a mistake we get reprimanded for it. Thankfully most of us work in jobs were lives aren't at stake. Neither our own or someone else.

But this attitude is not just a problem in the USA. Here in Canada our police force has become more and more militarized and what happened at Parliament Hill has only amplified law enforcement agencies to want to go even further. Now there are talks of off-duty officers still carrying their sidearms here in Ontario. Thankfully the police chief declined that request. But I'm sure it won't be the last time this idea is brought up;


Sadly, we're even seeing incidence of "carding" within Toronto. It worries me that my city is slowly turning into Nazi-Germany;


Here in Toronto in the past few years we've seen a young adult shot to death on an empty bus. He was carrying a knife and was shot three times while standing, another six times while down on the ground and then tasered for good measure.


There was a mental patient that broke out of a hospital dressed in pajamas, a house coat and no foot wear in the middle of winter carrying scissors. There was one mentally disturbed individual and eight officers. He was shot to death.


Note: You may say "he was coming at them with scissors, they were well within their rights", which isn't totally inaccurate. But what I must ask is, would this type of behaviour also happen where they are being treated with only hospital workers around? I never hear of patients being killed during treatment at those facilities.

There was a mentally ill immigrant lost at the Vancouver airport for nine hours and instead of helping this man, the RCMP officers that are here to serve and protect (meaning six officers), tasered this individual to death within 25 seconds of approaching him.


These are a few incidents and the vast majority of officers are here to serve and protect. But there is a rising issue with excessive force and those stories are starting to happen more frequently.

Just my $0.05 (we no longer have pennies in Canada). And in before the lock.
