I've long advocated that there should be a "soft 911" that people can call, before you call 911 — because police will show up and often shoot the very person you're trying to protect in the first place by calling them.
Turns out Virginia actually has this — it's just not well advertised.
You can call 211 instead of 911!
Here's their website.
That cop is an asshole! He should STAY fired, but he probably won't be. Guy seems like a raging lunatic about to murder someone. Hell, he told the guy he should have murdered him "for being stupid", and that he'd have a witness to his "execution". This fucking pig should not be in any position of power over any other human being ever again, period.
Not positive about the guy's name, but the YouTube comments said it was DANIEL HARLESS. DANIEL HARLESS is a pig.
Probably our favorite BrettSpielWelt game at the moment — this is actually getting us to stop playing Stone age for a bit.
My only complaint is that I wish the game would go on longer than 6 rounds. That's barely enough time to establish yourself and a victory.
This game reminds me of Stone Age a lot, yet it's most certainly more complicated. Three levels of players (workers that earn resources, craftsman that turn resources into victory points, and master masons that can get craftsmen, victory points, tax immunity, extra workers).
And then gold lets you buy craftsman, or buy earlier play (pay more to go first). It's very strange indeed.
