The self-beclowning of the press continues with this Q&A session ... good lord.

It's really fascinating watching the disconnect between McCullough describing the evidence and the protestors out in the street demonstrating the "hands up, don't shoot" movement.

McCullough sure is setting up the "no indictment" decision.

It appears we have the first fatality.

Edit - nvm, appears to have happened on Friday.

One of the Brown family lawyers is saying the decision will be announced after 5pm today.  So either they are not giving the protesters 48 hours notice, or the grand jury actually decided on Friday and they're just announcing it today.

My guess is no indictment.  But that's entirely a guess and juries have surprised me many, many times.

The picture at the video link is chilling. 6 white officers in riot gear taken from behind bars. Looks like a scene from some futuristic Authoritarian, Dystopian movie.

There's been some scary videos of the protests.  Saw one of a line of cops going up the street when they start to take fire and you can hear it within inches of the camera.  Like something you expect to see with ground troops in hostile territory.

It certainly sounds suspicious, but it's hard to say.  It isn't reasonable to expect the detectives to go interview every person collaterally connected with him, but the presence of injuries (especially if the cause is disputed ... normally it isn't common to have pathologists differing over whether injuries were cause pre- or post-mortem) is certainly suspicious.  Of course, if this is all the evidence they're working with, I can also see why there is little hope of a homicide investigation going anywhere.

3 miles this morning makes 33 for the month.  I'm debating whether I want to run the Turkey Trot this year ... I like the exercise and like getting to practice speed but I hate all the standing around.

Last night was NROLA Phase 2 Workout A fifth time.  I'm not getting any better at these swiss ball mountain climbers, but I think my swiss ball isn't inflated enough because it's really hard to hold myself up on it without hurting my wrists.  Subbed out Oly bar versions of the strength program and did some clean & jerk practice.  I'm thinking it would probably be a good idea to hire a coach for some workouts before I go putting any weight on the bar just to make sure I'm doing it right and not developing any nasty habits.

This morning was the track workout.  It was windy so we hurried and got our heart rates up.  The workout has become so easy I just consider it active rest.

Afternoon is looking to be some yard work, some cooking, some piano practice, and then some football.  Have a great Sunday everybody!

Reminds me of the WTO riots in Seattle.  (Which, as I recall, were called riots and involved mostly privileged young white protestors).  I was in college at the time and I remember posters popping up all over campus about going to "the biggest party on earth." Pretty sure a good percentage of people in the streets had no idea what the WTO was or what it was doing in Seattle.

Many illegals have fake SS cards or work permits. They pay into the system, but can never collect any taxes or benefits back. Employers know some employees have fake documents and some even assist illegals to be on their payroll.

Yep.  This.

They didn't, and it was the best day ever.  :) I did NROLA phase 2 workout B fourth time where I finally felt good about the swiss ball pikes, and then played with my bar.  I did manage to overhead squat it but only the first one was pretty.  Did lots of cleans and front squats and a few snatches to get the feel for it.  I'm going to love these workouts, the lifts are just so much fun.

Also, we got over freezing today for the first time in almost two weeks, so most of the ice has melted and tomorrow should be a good day back on the trail.

Rest and stress management can have a huge effect because stress affects your endocrine system and a lot of those hormones also interact with metabolism.  You need to prioritize self-care and relaxation so you aren't letting stress drive your body's chemistry.  It really does make a huge difference.

I don't know that this thread was targeted at 30% body fat folks.

I really liked it!  I'm probably in the 23-25% range, maybe slightly lower right now, and I'm fine with that.  It was really interesting for me to see them break it down into specific behavior changes to get different results.

My barbell and bumper plates are supposed to be delivered today!  It's one of those things where they're like "Oh hey, we'll be there sometime between 8am and midnight!  Will somebody be there?"  So I'm working from home today.  Woke up to find about an inch of ice on the roads, highways closed, school cancelled.  Wondering if they might find it a little tricky to slide my delivery in today ...
