    I assume they just go back to their regular schedule. They don’t push back everyone only the people that fall on the holiday. So you don’t get your trash picked up Tuesday if it falls on a holiday you get it picked up Wednesday but they don’t push Wednesday back too (or do they) so Tuesday and Wednesday picked up Wednesday. That or they don’t pick up on Sunday except Sundays that fall within a holiday week. So after that Sunday they go back to normal.

    Maybe their regular week isn’t at 100% capacity so weeks when there’s a holiday there’s a buffer.

    He didn’t care if she lived or died, probably was tired of beating her at home for not doing the dishes or something.

    People react differently to trauma, so I'm not going to malign him for his lack of enthusiasm. But, the description of him "having to be restrained" was clearly made up by the other people there.

    I’m mostly with you, but they did end up telling him and keeping him from going in. Of all the things the cops did wrong and lied about, this one seems the least problematic/inaccurate to me.

    I will say that “was restrained,” would’ve been a way better description than “had to be restrained.”

    I know everyone reacts differently and I don't pretend to be a hardo but I think it'd take a little more than asking me nicely to get me to stop from going to that room if I knew my wife had been shot and was still in the room with an active shooter. You'd have to take me down and restrain me with some cuffs and carry my fat ass out of there and I'd be calling you all pussies the entire time. Zero chance I'd go back to work with people that stood around while my wife was bleeding out. Imagine him having to explain his lack of action to his wife and kids after they see that video.

    Serious trauma can cause all sorts of different reactions. No way will I judge that one moment based on 3 seconds of video. I think the bigger issue (as it has been this entire time) is the total lack of urgency of all of the other guys in that hallway. Their first reaction to one of their fellow officers saying his wife has been shot is to get him out of there and "restrain" him. No one advocating on his behalf. Just a "get him out of here" as that guy is now an issue to be dealt with.

    Same deal with the cops who were handcuffing that one parent trying to get to their kids in the school. The cops treated the parents and concerned people as if they were just another issue to deal with and exert power over.

    Yeah, everyone reacts differently. The problem is that he’s supposed to be trained to go into danger and protect people. He didn’t even make an effort for his wife.

    idk how I’d react and I don’t want to sound like a Hardo but I’d hope I’d do more than that. I love my wife and I can’t imagine standing around knowing she might be dying I honestly can’t imagine not being physically restrained in order to not go in. Maybe I wouldn’t but fuck

    Holy shit, the pizza delivery guy found the six year old downstairs after looking upstairs, he couldn't find his way out in the thick smoke so went back upstairs and jumped out of a second story window with the kid.

    As a parent, how do you come close to saying thank you enough to that guy for saving your kids? I mean honestly idk what I'd even say or do foe him. I'd start with cocaine and strippers and go from there, I guess.
