Michigan middle school coach allegedly choked student with shirt in incident caught on surveillance video - ABC News
  • Yeah, faking a recording of a phone call that’s floating off in the nether is one thing.

    Faking recordings that can only come from one specific camera, and can be matched to that specific camera, pulled from a presumably secured dvr is not something even the best AI can do. Certainly it without extensive access to those systems.

    Every digital camera creates random and consistent artifacts in the video. Every police department in the nation has access to the necessary tools to do that analysis and it takes ten minutes.

    Not that there’s a reason to check, because again, the cops presumably watched the video get pulled from The DVR minutes after it happened.

  • Yeah….

    Lemme guess next you’re going to say that the security tapes, which were provided by the school, were deep fakes.

    … the mother got it from the kid and everyone else saw it happen on the tapes.

    They can at the very least state that the kid was assaulted (with a deadly weapon, at that.) nobody is denying that much.

  • The presumption of innocence is a very important part of protecting civil liberties of the accused

    It is not a statement of fact. You don’t get convicted and suddenly become guilty. The jury finds that you have always been guilty, based on the evidence shown at trial. And that doesn’t even necessarily mean you’re truly guilty or not.

    And while I get they’re trying to avoid lawsuits, but they’re taking it to pedantic extremes. The school found sufficient evidence to immediately terminate his employment, they throw the “allegedly” qualifier on there and scare quotes on “assault” at least once even though it’s patently obvious that an assault did happen.

    No, no. You’re right maybe it was staged. Maybe the kid that got choked out asked for it…

  • And how does the phone know if you just take left turns faster? How does it know if you’re in the left or right lane? It has no way of knowing what the forces are, or if that variation is caused by something else.

    Your phone has no idea which side of the car it’s on, and insurance companies and their apps really don’t care.

  • Motion sensors don’t provide localization. Gps on cellphones are only really accurate to a few dozen meters.

    You can couple gps and motion (and changes in gps location) to fudge it. Which is why when you diverge off the route navigation provides… it takes it a moment to figure it out. In the display, they “know” you’re on the road so it doesn’t have to be that accurate, they just guess what lane you’re in based on direction and such.

    They’re certainly not going to know what seat you’re in.

  • they literally put scare quotes around "assault" like it's a dubious statement that an assault took place. Even if you want to try and somehow argue that the school got the wrong guy, that it really wasn't the coach, there's enough evidence to say that an assault took place.

  • They have an interview with the victims mother.

    They know the coach got fired immediately.

    They have the video and a statement from the school acknowledging that an assault took place.

    The video is just icing on the evidentiary cake.

  • That covers half of it. Read the article. They really are couching it in media-speak.

    Almost as if they like the guy.

    Watch the video. It’s pretty clear an assault took place, yet that too is “alleged”. The implication there is that the attack never happened- when it very clearly did.

  • Michigan middle school coach allegedly choked student with shirt in incident caught on surveillance video - ABC News
  • what the fuck is with all the double speak in this article? "allegedly". "the aleged "Assault"..." Like. Dude. the coach is on camera. Choking out a student. You can argue that maybe it was some how consensual, maybe? At which point you need to ask can a minor actually consent to that? (Nope.)

    also. No charges filed? are you fucking kidding me?

    Why bag the hydrant?

    Saw this going to a friend’s house- they bagged the fire hydrants….one thought was snow; but this is the first year apparently. And snow has been a mild issue this year compared to most.

    [question] for the chemistry types- making chicken soup. Why did lemon juice turn the light brown chicken stock almost white?

    Okay, so I was making chicken soup from stock I had made using a (lightly,) browned carcus and neck. just before dumping the the dumplings into it, the stock's color was a nice light brown. I added about 1/4 cup of lemon juice, turned my back for 30 seconds after a stir and it turned it an almost milky-off white. Eventually it deepened to this:

    !

    It's delicious, and tastes as expected, I'm just curious as to what happened in the broth's chemistry?

    Seasoned with salt (duh), a sprig of thyme, some ginger and garlic, (just a hint of ginger,) black pepper, lemon zest (which was added with the torn chicken,) and white wine deglazed the pot from browning the dark meat.

    The stock was from garlic, onion, celery, carrot and maybe ginger scraps cooked with the chicken carcass..

    linear rail upgrades, looking for feed back.

    Due to reasons... I've "adopted" a CR10s that a friend had bought. It was used, and was already well on it's way to being a janky Printer of Theseus. My hope is to get it up and running and put through it's paces before the holidays so I can give it back as a gift.

    With the linear rail upgrades, I picked up the hardware and it's on it's way; which got me looking at how to do the upgrade, which I have mostly figured out; the question I'm having is, most upgrades seem to place the rails on 2020 extrusions sitting on top of the base frame- same as how the original y axis 2040's were designed.

    Which raises the question- why not lower it so the 2020 rails are even with the frame, with the mgn12 rail sitting on top? Like so:

    !

    The short answer I came to is this would necessitate replacing the brackets for the y stepper motor and it's idler; but it should be possible. the easiest solution would be something like:

    !

    which raises the question: are printed parts rigid enough to hold against the tension on the belts? The motors can't handle too much tension anyhow, and the printer already has the screw-cap tensioners for x and y printed that seem to have been holding up well.

    has anybody replaced the OG metal bracket on the back? does it stress and need replacing often, or is it fairly reliable (and above all, consistent,)

    Car wash: touchless or soft touch?

    Which do you use and why? Which one gets it cleaner. If it matters we have “real” winters here, meaning snow cruft and salt that absolutely must be removed.

    Edit to clarify: I’m talking about a choice in automated car washes- not hand washing cars. Seems people are getting confused. Touchless is a few passes with a pressure washer. Soft touch adds spinning car-wash brush things.

    Ship building question

    Okay, so, with structural modules- specifically the cowl/belly/hull modules you can slap in... aside from the trivial gains to hull, are they basically just for attachment points/decoration?

    could i protect things that can be targeted- the weapons, shields, engines, and grav drive- by placing 'under' hull components? or does that just not matter?
