    You have a shitty dangerous program running on a shitty
    dangerous platform. Never mind the XP platform, you're stuck
    with it like most people.

    Get vlc for XP, it plays EVERYTHING and it will blow your mind.
    I recommend uninstalling WMP FIRST if possible, and certainly
    allow vlc to associate ALL media files (unless you have a
    favorite mp3 [or something] player which you use for music). But
    for all video, vlc rules.


    I would NOT keep WMP just for mp3's. There are MUCH better free
    mp3 players all over the place.

    Forte Agent started a new thread for me since the poster changed the subject
    line. I wouldn't have even noticed he piggybacked on the thief's post if you
    didn't point it out.

    Google windows media player classic and vlc. Between the two you can play
    99.9% of media out there.

  12. Gosh, I hope Agent isn't *that* broken! Look at the reference headers
    to be sure. It may have appeared as something new if you are, say,
    sorting on Subject line or Date, rather than using Threaded view.

    But hey, let's blame it all on the Lordy Mercy guy and his inferior
    newsreader!! :)

    Simply because male white officer strikes black person makes it a racially
    prejudiced issue?
    In my opinion, the officer was wrong for the assault regardless of skin
    color involved. Did I see that right? No sound so I have to assume the cop
    was with the US Dorest Service? Without the details of what actually
    happened, I really don't know what to make of it. But the cop had no
    justification for the assault. On either woman.

    For the "Real Truth" check out this article.
    The reason for the altercation was the fact that the officer had spotted a
    black male jaywalking, when he should have been using the nearby overhead
    During that stop, the officer sees 4 black women doing the same thing. He
    calls them over to his car. Two wind up leaving. Apparently, there are
    conflicting stories as to the nature of the assault. Either way, the
    officer already had his hand on the girl holding her. I could not clearly
    see what she did to provoke his attack. Either way, the assault on the girl
    was not justifiable. Now he will have to answer to assault and battery
    charges that will be placed against him, and a lawsuit.

    This video showing a cop punching a female does not tell the story

    This article tells more about the events preceding the punch.


    .... even tho' that KOMO article (also) just emphasizes the officer
    punching with the photo accompanying the words.

    If we isolate snippets of an altercation between uncooperative criminals
    who are being retained and who are resisting the actions of the
    retaining officer - then it looks bad for the officer.

    In the beginning a crime was being committed. The officer retained the
    first criminal for citing. Next, some more criminals began perpetrating
    the same crime in front of the officer. When the officer tried to
    retain those 'secondary' criminals for citation, they resisted the
    violation processing and physically and verbally abused the officer.

    The photo at the link took place when the officer responded - likely
    suboptimally - to a criminal's abettor who was assaulting him.

    That punched person was physically interfering with the officer in the
    performance of his duties, retaining a perpetrator. Apparently the
    punch was a tactic to countermand that interference. The article says:

    "punching is a trained tactic"

    The fact that the initial crime was jaywalking doesn't mean that the cop
    ran up to the jaywalker and punched her in the face. More like a
    non-jaywalker physically interfered with and assaulted a police officer
    in an attempt to 'free' a criminal being retained and the officer
    reacted with modest physical force as a tactic to regain control of the

    Not according to a 30 year veteran in law enforcement


    But then, you with your shopping mall security training
    should know better, eh?

    There is a lot more video at that link.

    According to the interviewed "program manager for Fitness and Force
    Training" the punch was appropriate, but not necessarily the optimal
    overall response.

    One problem with the punch strategy in this scene is that the officer
    might injure his hand/fist. One good thing is that it was quick and
    apparently effective at restoring some order.

    The expert comments that what the officer might have done better earlier
    was to get the 'other' girl more detained more quickly -- suggesting
    that perhaps the detaining cop should have taken her down to the ground
    to get the cuffs on her, rather than standing up to do it, which was
    awkward here with the limited cooperation and resistance.

    The girl who got punched was not the girl he was trying to put the cuffs
    on, but someone who was trying to 'get her away' from the cop.

    Jaywalking kills a lot of people. Cops on the beat have to make
    judgments as to when to cite a person (or persons) for what might seem
    to be trivial infraction.

    I suggest that when a cop decides to detain you to give you a citation
    for some trivial infraction that you cooperate with him -- and also that
    any friends who you might have nearby not attack the officer to try to
    physically release you from his detention.

    If there is a problem with respect for the police, whether it comes
    about because of pre-existing racial attitudes or not, that the
    perpetrators cooperate with the law enforcement process.
