I can't believe they allow thugs like that in the NFL. This isn't what our fathers protested their protesting for!

NYPD officer says he inflated charge against Eric Garner

Quote
After Eric Garnerís death following a confrontation with New York City police five years ago, one officer involved in the struggle wrote up paperwork that exaggerated the seriousness of the dead manís suspected crime, that officer testified Tuesday.

Officer Justin Damico said that after riding in an ambulance with the dying Garner, he filled out arrest papers listing a felony tax charge that would have required prosecutors to prove Garner, a small-time street hustler, had sold 10,000 untaxed cigarettes.

Damico was questioned about the posthumous arrest papers while testifying at the disciplinary trial of Officer Daniel Pantaleo, a one-time partner accused of restraining Garner with a banned chokehold as they tried to arrest him for selling loose, untaxed cigarettes on Staten Island in July 2014.

I was at last night's game.  I might have lost count but I'm pretty sure NY hit five home runs, bringing the season total home runs allowed to 105 in what, 49 games?

It was a beautiful night though and I enjoyed some delicious pit beef.  Too bad about the team.

We can shtein on the offense tonight.  The rookie got lit up by the usual suspects in Wrigley, that part I get BUT how do the first 5 batters get 11 hits and only get 3 across the plate?

My one hope is they didnít give much backstory on the Night King or the three eyed raven because thatís going to be covered in the prequel.

That stuff was fairly botched on the show, so I don't know how well they could meld things together, but of the rumored prequels...

A show about "the Long Night", about which little has been officially written, would certainly flesh out the backstory of the white walkers. This is the previous time the dead and the "Others" invaded Westeros, about 6000-8000 years before the events of the show. This is the origin story of the Night's Watch. A show runner would have a rather blank canvas.

The Three-Eyed Raven is strongly implied in the books to be a particular highly compelling historical figure. This character would be an incredible TV anti-hero if done right, and would be a major character in any adaption of the "Dunk and Egg" novellas, which take place 90-100 years before the show time period. Of course, that's presuming the three-eyed raven, who is roughly 130 years old in the books, is the same as the one who claims to have been waiting 1000 years in the show. I suppose it's also possible the "raven" is somewhat of an ancient spirit who merges together with people like Bran, making age fairly meaningless.

The Night King does not exist in the books as a leader of White Walkers, at least so far. In the books, the "Night's King" is a historical human figure, possibly a previous Bran Stark, who was boning and/or working with White Walkers, and committing a bunch of related atrocities in the North. I don't know of any rumored show about him.

Another rumored prequel would be about the Dance of the Dragons civil war (~170 years before show). I think this would actually make the best show of all of them, but very little "magic" (other than the dragons themselves) would be part of that story. Really has nothing to do with NK or 3ER.
