Here it is. I looked and looked and got a tip that Inside the NFL had it. Sean Payton's reaction to his season ending. by IamUltimatelyWin in minnesotavikings

[–]razorsheldon 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Nobody here is smug in the slightest, and everybody respects and is anxious about going into Philly. This post and the comments here are purely karma, retribution, redemption etc... all stemming from the NFC Championship game in 2009 that has been etched in the memory of every Vikings fan that witnessed it.

Sean Payton was banned for a year and Gregg Williams was banned for life until he appealed. That speaks for itself. Now go bait some other team’s sub, as that little troll tactic doesn’t work so well here.

BART police officer fatally shoots someone outside West Oakland Station by OMGROTFLMAO in bayarea

[–]razorsheldon 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Here's what I pieced together from the two witness statements gathered by the media:

(From Witness 1 inside the Mexican restaurant) Younger guy and older guy are arguing and walk into the restaurant. Younger guy is filming older guy with his cell phone and yelling at him about what he did to some kids. Older guy is shielding his face while trying to walk away. They both go outside and she hears one gunshot... a pause and then multiple gunshots.

(From Witness 2 outside the Mexican restaurant) Younger guys shoots older guy in the leg, BART cop comes running over from the parking lot and shoots the younger guy dead on the scene.

Based on the non law enforcement gun recovered at the scene and the witness statements, it seems a personal dispute led to a non fatal shooting right next to a BART police officer who engaged and killed the shooter.

South Carolina lottery error could lead to $19.6 million in winnings by msiekkinen in offbeat

[–]razorsheldon 17 points18 points  (0 children)

If this happened at a casino, they'd nullify every winning ticket and claim there was a malfunction. And nobody would bat an eye, because that's a private entity. But if the same thing happened at a public entity, suddenly paying out $20 million is a realistic option because who is going to complain about such a payout?

[–]razorsheldon 12 points13 points  (0 children)

This is an egregious amount for nothing more than a slight shove and a personal dispute that comes down to pride, yet Oakland taxpayers and the neediest citizens living there will pay the price yet again for these shenanigans. How can there ever be progress when you only see ridiculous outcomes like this?

Since gas stations are the primary targets for card skimming machines, I would err on the side of this being sketch.

Millennials Give More Generously To Charity, Study Says by Sariel007 in UpliftingNews

[–]razorsheldon[M] -6 points-5 points  (0 children)

Not frowned upon here! We encourage kindness, compassion and charitable giving... especially during the holiday season. And while we're not desperate, many recipients of charity are, which is why this comment was posted.

/u/Racxie The fact that you're hijacking a thread to advertise a non-related charity is honestly pretty off-putting and something that's generally frowned upon in a lot of communities. Those views might not be shared here but it honestly comes across as a little desperate.

There are a large number of great charities out there doing incredible things to help others and advance humanity, but for those research-driven, generous millennials out there, we still support Watsi.org here as the most impactful that provides the most bang for your buck.

Feel free to donate here and feel free to suggest any other great charities below this comment.

Below is the full comment posted here. Since you said "Please report things you see like this" please be more specific, as you didn't mention anything about housing at all:

/r/all here They absolutely pull this shit on /r/sanfrancisco and other Bay Area subreddits. They try to "red pill" the subreddits (to use their idiot neckbeard parlance.) They don't say things like "build the wall!" or "all lives matter!" because they know it will be rejected by such a liberal community. Instead they pick local news and local issues that have any kind of controversy surrounding them and try to steer the narrative slightly to their side. In /r/sanfrancisco it's usually related to things like housing. There is already a fierce debate in SF about whether the city and state are over-regulating development, leading to a shortage. As a result, many liberal democrats (myself included) have been advocating for relaxed regulations on sustainable, transit-oriented or affordable housing projects to get supply up. They inject themselves into these debates to push the narrative that liberals generally over-regulate things. It's infuriating because I'll say something and then some idiot redcap will chime in and be like "yeah, stupid liberals!" but in a more nuanced way and it's like...no that's not what I'm saying at all. Then I click their username and see they're also posting in other cities and states subreddits as well as /r/uncensorednews or /r/conspiracy or some bullshit. Makes me want to build a wall around /r/sf and make /r/t_d pay for it.

I feel like I'm in bizarro world. This was the comment posted here:

Aside from zero examples or any other context, they infer comments about local news and anything opposed to unregulated housing or no more regulations means somebody is brigading from red flyover states? Housing?? It is non sensical, yet the top comment here is the moderating team asking for more reports on this stuff. It is insane.

[–]razorsheldon 81 points82 points  (0 children)

I'm sorry, but this is getting insane. I have nothing to do with r/TheDonald and have a pretty extensive and well documented history on reddit and within my local subreddit here.

But I was very disappointed in not only the outcome of the Steinle trial but also the silence from the local leadership about it... the same leadership that gave a recognized and official city "day of remembrance" to Mario Woods who was shot by police while refusing to drop a knife soaked with fresh blood from a guy he had just stabbed.

This shouldn't be a place where "non progressive" thoughts or political opinions are censored, and I find it disturbing to see this becoming more and more normalized here.

EDIT: Not a single shred of evidence or a specific example cited in the initial comment posted here, just broad generalizations about alleged brigaders. Yet the first response to my comment here is "I don't know who the heck upvoted this..." which perfectly highlights the problem. A complete shock that somebody has a difference of opinion and even more shock that others might dare agree with it. And when the shock subsides, it appears to morph into a desire to censor the differing opinion.

San Francisco defends sanctuary status as backlash mounts by zsreport in sanfrancisco

[–]razorsheldon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don’t think there was anything “random” about the recent detainment request in this case.

And it goes far beyond cooperating as there have already been millions of city tax dollars spent and allocated towards defending undocumented immigrants in their local legal proceedings. That is money that could go towards other needed resources for the SF citizens paying the taxes here.

San Francisco defends sanctuary status as backlash mounts by zsreport in sanfrancisco

[–]razorsheldon 7 points8 points  (0 children)

It seems like a very slippery slope to allow a small group of city leaders to make decisions like this without the process of gathering votes and input from voters and taxpayers.

What does "sanctuary city" mean and how is it applied here? What if 100,000 undocumented show up in the city tomorrow... what about 1,000,000 or 10,000,000 that completely overwhelm the resources here? There needs to be more substance to this policy and there needs to be consensus from citizens here about it.

At the beginning of this year in /r/UpliftingNews we raised almost $200k for the tortured special needs teenager in Chicago... an amount that made a profound difference in his recovery and his family's ability to deal with the situation.

Not guilty verdict reached in Kate Steinle murder trial by Mr_Incredible_PhD in sanfrancisco

[–]razorsheldon 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Why is Mayor Ed Lee and the rest of the SF Board of Supervisors silent on this miscarriage of justice? The guy admitted to shooting her, admitted to throwing the gun in the water after he shot her (and the gun was recovered) and he was acquitted in her murder... of 1st degree murder 2nd degree murder and even involuntary manslaughter. This is disgusting on all levels, yet the SF leadership is completely silent.

Kate Steinle's killer (undocumented immigrant who was deported five times) is found NOT GUILTY by SFShootingsGuy in sanfrancisco

[–]razorsheldon 9 points10 points  (0 children)

He was charged with 1st and 2nd degree murder along with involuntary manslaughter and was acquitted on all 3.

There is no fathomable reason for him to be acquitted of involuntary manslaughter given the circumstances and this seems to be a miscarriage of justice.
