Congress cheered the cops that shot and killed Miriam Carey.
For some time I have been concerned about the militarization of the police and the collapse of common sense over the entire issue of domestic security.
My suspicion is that there was overreaction by the police to a woman that panicked. Two cops involved in the shooting have been removed from street duty. That could be routine SOP or an indication of something more. Whatever the outcome, there is nothing to cheer about.
All The Best
THE ELEPHANT BAR IS CLOSED
I want to thank everyone who participated in the Elephant Bar over the past twelve years. We had millions of visitors from all around the World and you were part of it. Over the past dozen years, two or three times a night, I would open my laptop and some of you were always there. I will miss that.
My plans are to continue my work with technology and architecture. You know my interests and thoughts.
At times, things would get a little rough in the EB. To those of you that I may have offended over the years, I apologize. From all of you, I learned and grew.
An elephant never forgets.
