Driver flips SUV in North Sea, trying to avoid deer

maybe......use a different screen name for different things." Dec 8, 09 5:35 PM

Seventh day of deliberations ends with no verdict in Oddone case

I agree." Dec 8, 09 5:38 PM

When fighting a larger opponent, the most effective strategy is to somehow obtain their back and apply a choke. It's one of the most effective means of protection. A proper choke can render your opponent "out" in a short period of time. Oddone is guilty because he held the choke too long, but with your adrenaline pumping, the fear associated with a fight, and the "craziness" of the bar and crowd, I don't think he realized when to let go. I doubt (I could be wrong) that this was intentional.

The whole point of a choke is to hold it until your opponents body goes limp. It's not deadly if you let go." Dec 8, 09 7:14 PM

He's definately guilty of a crime. It's a matter of to what extent." Dec 8, 09 7:33 PM

If it's too long then don't read it.....Who cares is someone wants to write a novel, is it too hard to scroll past it?

Long posts such as Publius' offer valuable information regarding the law, and i, for one, enjoy his posts. He doesn't slam anyone, his writing is concise and intelligent, who cares if it's long. " Dec 9, 09 11:08 AM

how about just deleting the hostile posts." Dec 9, 09 12:39 PM

Most boards delete flame wars. If a post is inappropriate or overly hostile, and breaks the rules of the board, it makes sense to delete it. I am not for censorship, but if the rules are broken, well, they get their post booted." Dec 9, 09 2:12 PM

Only one person said assault. Its clear that Mr Riester did not assault Mr. Oddone." Dec 9, 09 2:14 PM

PBR, you sound like a broken record." Dec 9, 09 3:17 PM

I think assualt requires the intent of harm. Do we think Mr. Reister intended to harm Oddone?" Dec 9, 09 5:01 PM

Have any of you tried to hold a choke for that long? And during a struggle? It's unlikely Mr. Oddone could hold a rear choke for that long, especially with people pulling and kicking him. 2-3 minutes is absurd, the choke didn't even last half that time." Dec 10, 09 2:10 PM

Hand of God,

You are making it difficult for anyone to understand your side. Don't exaggerate the situation. Mr. Reister by all accounts, was 285 with a bunch of equipment on the bed, so he wasn't 285, not near weighing 100 lbs more than Oddone. And pursued Mr. Oddone? Where did you get that? Unreasonable force is debatable, force yes, unreasonable? It's a bar and he's a bouncer, i'm not sure Mr. Reister was unreasonable.

I agree that Oddone was scared and acted the way he did out of fear, not rage. But, he is guilty because he used deadly force where Mr. Reister did not. Although, not of muder." Dec 10, 09 3:56 PM

The length of time matters. If he in fact held the choke for 2 minutes (highly unlikely) that would speak towards intent. If he held it for only 30 seconds, while still negligent, speaks more of subduing an opponent." Dec 10, 09 4:35 PM

Enough with the caps people, it's really annoying. Caps lock is button on the left side of the keyboard if you are looking at it, and says "caps lock". Hit that button and you can type normally. Thank You." Dec 10, 09 6:42 PM

Oddone guilty of first-degree manslaughter, jury announces Monday

you people are crazy. I can't believe some of the things i'm reading. Equalizer,, you really are a tool for lack of a better word.

Justice has been served, or at least, that is the way it looks from my vantage point.

Ms Buckley: Thank you for serving the community, you service is greatly appreciated, don't let these morons get on your nerves.

To the Reisters: I'm so sorry for your loss, I hope this verdict brings some closure. " Dec 15, 09 5:41 PM

Maybe not this far, but certainly he would serve jail time. there is nothing in this case that can fully "justify" the killing of mr. Reister.

I certainly hope all this crap flying around about Juror 2 is false. I'd hate to see this case have to go over again." Dec 16, 09 9:18 AM

Are you referring to the Monte case." Dec 19, 09 10:16 AM

East End still digging out after record snow

So, taxes went up 800 for me this year, and yet we haven't even had a plow look at our street as of 2pm. BUT, at least i saw on my way to work that the BIG DUCK parking lot was being plowed. Doesn't the town own that now? " Dec 21, 09 5:09 PM

East Hampton Town harbormaster arrested for marijuana possession

Such bull. Total setup, the police had no choice to bust him or the jerks would have gone to the news.

I don't smoke pot, but we are only talking about pot, not a big deal." Jan 7, 10 1:27 PM
