You're biased and from a racist town, you're trying too hard to detach from racist roots by defending shit like this. Because that's what it is, bullshit. He commit a crime, he was detained, he resisted and was forcibly grounded and in the process his asthma triggered and, mostly due to the fact that he was trying to get away initially, his pleas for help were ignored. No one should have died from what should have been a simple arrest, but the officer should not be punished for doing his job, nor should this event force an entire restructuring of the NYPD.

You know what,at the end of the day,a jury of people who showed no bias in this incident agreed that what was done wasn't illegal and Garner is not to be indicted for it. Yeah, I'm fairly sure my opinion isn't the minority here.

If the guy you beat up had had a gun, would he have been justified in shooting you?
I'm gonna entertain this for a minute mesh. First of all, neither the asshat I scuffled with nor myself made any type of statement demanding the other stopped what they were doing. As soon as the jerk who early nearly smashed my leg dropping weights like an incompetent moron stopped trying to hit me back and just covered his head, I backed off, so if he pulled a weapon at that point he'd be entirely in the wrong. New york gun laws are also much stricter than Florida's so he'd be in the wrong for having it in almost any case, much less firing it at me on a  public street. I also didn't go looking for him to start a fight, he waited for me, so self defense in his case is gone in any regards, he was waiting for a fight, I didn't give him a chance to do much about it. Do you want me to go on about the legality of our fight, aside from the fact that public fighting is disorderly conduct and if someone had filed a complaint we would both have been justifiably detained? Zimmerman/Martin is not similar to what happened to me and that guy that night, so no, short of me attempting to choke him to death the guy would have had no justifiable right to shoot me.

What does this all have to do with blatant disregard for a police officer arresting a person and said person resisted? In the US,if  police officer stops and questions you, you are legally ok to not answer, but then the officer can choose to arrest you and you MUST comply with it. No questioning, no resisting.

Mesh....what are you pointing out? In all of those quotes of mine, cops are not involved at any point. Zimmerman isn't a cop, and that fuckhead I got into a fight ran because he heard a siren, which btw had nothing to do with our own fight outside as the car never came around. I didn't say my actions were justified, just that I did them, and if I had been stopped by a cop, I would have done as told. Much the same as when some little weiner of a polic officer arrested my dad, a 6 foot 3 300+ pound grown man because he was making a fit about my sister getting in trouble in a hospital. It's called respect for the law.

@glassjawsh it's not fucking racist, it's not horrible police tactics, it's fucking doofs like you who think telling a guy to stop in the name of the law is enough to get a person to put his hands up and settle down...OH WAIT THEY TRIED THAT AND HE TRIED TO LEAVE. So yeah, horseshit on everything you say. And your fucking nonsensical comparison of soliders versus american populace deaths is completely that, nonsense. Last I checked, the military isn't out there stopping THEIR OWN FUCKING PEOPLE THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO BE PROTECTING. Seriously, it's so easy to sit on your fucking high horse and pretend that crime isn't fucking real and police are just paid government lackies looking to bust balls. Know what, if you don't like police brutality in the US, go move to china where if you are out of line,police simply beat your ass.

2400+ people died over the course of 5 years from police involved incidents....I wonder how many hundreds of thousands of crimes they prevented so that number didn't get a zero added for crime relates deaths to American Citizens BY American citizens.

I'm not gonna argue this shit, fuck Garner, let everyone know that resisting arrest is against the fucking law, and stop fucking blaming racism on every black guy who gets arrested and injured during the process, you're only telling them it's ok to be a criminal thug because we shouldn't assume they are. It's all our fault that criminals choose to be criminals, because right and fucking wrong isn't so easy even  7 year olds understand the basic concept of it...

It's all about taste there, Aeolus.  I couldn't care less if there were ever a new Bond movie.
HEEEEEEY, Daniel Craig is single-handedly saving the Bond franchise. I am quite happy to discuss Spectre,the new Bond flick.

I have nothing but hate for the protesting of the Eric Garner case. Idiot people running around claiming what the officer did was illegal...it's ridiculous. The chokehold used wouldn't have been effective if the guy had simply stopped resisting, but no, lets forget that whole part, OBVIOUSLY the cops should have just let him go because any physical effort to stop a fucking giant guy could have possibly injured him and cops shouldn't be allowed to cause harm to FUCKING CRIMINALS. The chokehold isn't illegal, either, just his station house banned the use of it. So is he (the officer I mean) liable to get fired for breaking station protocol, sure, but did he break the law, fuck no.

...FOR FUCKS SAKE THE GUY HAS A GODDAMN HISTORY OF CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES, WHY ARE PEOPLE EVEN UPSET ABOUT THIS? Maybe he didn't deserve to die, but the officer who was in fa t doing his job doesn't deserve the horrors being thrown his way for taking a scumbag off the street. Sell a loose cigarette today, a dime bag tomorrow, maybe a few hits of ecstacy next week...this is just bullshit. Fucking police officers in America get so much heat for dealing with the worst street criminals the world over, risking their lifes for ingrateful fuckholes every day who'd rather instigate them into forceful arrests to file lawsuits than simply do the fucking lawful thing and stop when told to and such. God I fucking hate how we treat law enforcement.

Thanks guys~ I now fully realize how boring being a Tank is. :S
Actually tanks are probably the most active role in groups most of the time, assuming you don't play a boring tank style. I was always moving to avoid attacks and reposition for ease of attacking. Tanks are only as boring as you play them.
41  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, a Thread Reborn on: December 04, 2014, 01:10:30 AM
I'm now starting the melee classes on my character. I just have one important question: Would it be better to put most of my attribute points on vitality, strength, or dexterity?

Also, has Square Enix had any plans to release an Audio CD of the OST?
Each class has a stat associated to their main method of attack. Archer/Bard and Rogue/Ninja use dex, Pug/Monk and Lnc/Drg use strength, and tanks mainly use vitality. For dd, always smax your damage attribute, for tanks, it's a bit different. I recommend all vitality on both til you cap your level and hit around i100 in gear levels, then you can play with the other stats a bit. I usually go all str for my warrior since most cases don't demand an extra 500 hp from vitality, but the str bonus allows easier hate accrual during most runs and boosts heals off of bloodbath, inner beast, storm's eye, and if you cross class it, chakra. Pld is different in that the shield uses dex iirc for block rate, so some plds go for that just for the increased block rate, but if you're unsure of it, all vitality will never fail you.

If you go over each stat in the attribute menu it will tell you what they're for, so use that if you need an idea of where the bonus stats should go.

Played some multiplayer with some random guy who really knew his way around. I get the impression your experience can vary drastically with a title depending on who you play with. He certainly revealed to me that I play SLOW.

I imagine I am probably a pain in the ass as I found myself really more or less following the other dude to the fight without so much as a moment to even switch my skills.

Me thinks, being paired with more patient gamers will prove more suitable than this first experience with multi.
Bear in mind a lot of people are working on several new characters, just rushing through the game. I agree that patience from their end is appreciated, but I learned a LONG time ago that if they're helping you along, bite the bullet and try to keep pace with them. If you wanna mess with your gear and stuff, I recommend jumping out of multiplayer modes and going solo to check out new stuff that appears, or at the very least wait til you have buddies running with you instead. I used to make people wait in stuff like PSO and PSU, and that usually meant I either got left behind while people squashed enemy groups and bosses, or worse they'd leave the group and go play with other people. I resolved to simply eat a dps loss or armor loss, or sometimes just wait on skill adjustments in certain games, until we finished a dungeon or boss fight. Made a lot of friends that way, as they appreciated me not slowing them down even when I was a newbie, and of course I loved being carried through cheap content.

Tl;dr Don't use the midst of battle to play with gear or skills unless it's singleplayer. You're vulnerable and worse, missing out on valuable experience.

I'm no good for early AM sessions anymore as I'm changing my schedule around for early starts now, but afternoons when I don't work and evenings when I do I'm almost always free for some level of entertainment. If you wanna try to get me online, just shoot me a psn message even if I'm not online. The app notifies me and lets me reply so I can always get back to you asap.

Well then, congrats Dice! If you had stayed any longer this may have been you...
