Dick, Gordon Dickson, Poul Anderson, John Brunner, Gregory Benford, Robert Silverberg, Harry Turtledove, and Ben Bova.

Most of the stories, like war itself, remain entirely relevant today.

THERE WILL BE WAR Volume I is edited by Jerry Pournelle and John F. Carr, and features 23 stories, articles, and poems. Of particular note are “Reflex” by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle, the original “Ender’s Game” novella by Orson Scott Card, “The Defenders” by Philip K. Dick, and a highly influential pair of essays devoted to the then-revolutionary concept of “High Frontier” by Robert A. Heinlein and Lt. General Daniel Graham.

Dashcam Footage Shows Police Attempting to Run Over a Mentally Ill Homeless Man Before Fatally Shooting Him 14 Times [Video]

Shocking dashcam footage reveals that Sacramento police officers attempted to run over a mentally ill homeless man with their car less than 35 seconds before they shot and killed him. One of the officers can be heard saying “ f*ck this guy ” and “ I’m going to hit him ” in the clip moments before they shot & killed Joseph Mann. via the Sacramento Bee :. During that sequence, the officers gunned their vehicle toward Mann, backed up, turned and then drove toward him again, based on dashcam video released by police. The July 11 incident has sparked protest from local religious and black leaders, who say Sacramento Police Department officers escalated the situation and unnecessarily resorted to lethal force. The Bee reviewed the clip of Officers Randy Lozoya and John Tennis after enhancing the audio to highlight their voices. 20 after The Sacramento Bee obtained surveillance footage from a private citizen that showed the officers shooting Mann. Within an hour of The Bee posting the footage online, Sacramento police called a news conference to release video from three dashboard cameras as well as audio from two 911 calls and other information. Lozoya and Tennis are currently on “modified duty,” according to police spokesman Bryce Heinlein. “They are officers that shouldn’t be in uniform,” said Robert Mann, Joseph Mann’s brother, after learning the contents of the audio. John Burris, lawyer for the Mann family, called the officers’ conduct “cowboyish” and “outrageous. ” The Mann family has filed a federal lawsuit and a claim against the city, and Burris said he will amend that complaint in coming days to include the attempt to hit Mann with the car. Burris said a car should be considered a lethal weapon and therefore should have been used as a weapon only if officers felt Mann posed an imminent threat to officers or others. Heinlein said police training does include using vehicles as a weapon. “That is something we discuss in our use-of-force training, using a vehicle as a deadly weapon,” he said. Heinlein said he is “not aware” of any department training in the use of a vehicle as a nonlethal weapon. Police were called to the scene after residents at a nearby apartment complex reported that Mann was acting erratically. Source: B. Scott | lovebscott.com
