WWII In HD

While I was sick last week I came across WWII in HD on the History channel and it sucked me in. They did a tremendous job of finding this footage and putting it into a cohesive narrative. Much better than Ken Burns’ ‘The War’ which was a letdown. I have two more episodes left of WWII in HD in my Tivo so don’t spoil the ending for me.

Officer Breaks Window With Drunks Face

From CNN:

An Oakland, California-area transit police officer was captured on video forcing an unruly man into a heavy-duty glass window, which shattered, during an arrest at a passenger station.

The video, posted on YouTube, shows an unidentified Bay Area Rapid Transit officer in a scuffle with a man whom authorities identified as Michael Joseph Gibson, 37, of San Leandro, California.

Gibson, who appears disgruntled and gesturing while on a train at the West Oakland Station, is pulled off the train by an officer, who has the man in an arm grip.

The officer forcibly walks the man toward the station wall, which is topped by large windows, and one window shatters as the officer appears to force the man against it. It was unclear exactly what caused the glass to break.
