I didn't see this posted yet.
Was actually posted a few posts back, but is suitably wacko.

Quote Hitler once, shame on Hitler.

Quote Hitler twice, shame on an undefinable Nazi.

Quote Hitler thrice, shame on ???.

I like how someone tried to justify the Hitler quotes as being relevant to the slides.

Which totally misses the point of why this is a problem. There are a million relevant quotes that could be found, but whoever put this together seemed to be of the mindset that you first bring up your big book of Hitler quotations, find one that vaguely fits the slide, then if that fails you begrudgingly go on Goodreads and find quotes by someone else  that might be relevant.

I'm pretty sure I could come up with all Darth Vader and the Emperor quotes that would fit the slides, too.

Or, we can entertain an alternate interpretation where the guy exhaustively crawled quotations sites, before begrudgingly going "well, I guess Adolf Hitler nailed the Ethics topic on the head again, I'll use his quote".

Im thinking since they were already using Batman and Spider-Man quotes may be they were going for quotes the audience was already familiar with ;)

Well, time to reboot the thread.

Minneapolis police largely excluded local press from their press conference regarding the recent police killing of Duante Wright  - national and international outlets were allowed.

There was also the police harassing a black army lieutenant while he was in uniform, here.

Police Chief Tim Gannon has told media the shooting was accidental.

"It is my belief the officer meant to deploy their Taser but shot him with a single bullet," he said on Monday morning.

Lol sorry I thought this fucking handgun was a taser, because I am a trained law enforcement officer. Shot you in your car. My bad.

There is no angle from which this defense is acceptable.

There was also the police harassing a black army lieutenant while he was in uniform, here.

On the one hand, he was refusing to acknowledge clear instructions from the police for a very long time, while implying that his position should entitle him to special treatment. That's just not how law enforcement works, and police were 100% entitled to escalate.

On the other hand, the guy was just sitting there. You don't escalate to violence against someone who's not being violent. Fine his ass. Add another '0' to the fine for every minute he wants to sit there. But don't pull out the pepper spray because some dipshit is sitting in his car for too long.
