Instead of 2 upvote buttons (1.insightful 2.fun)...
I would rather have 1. upvote and 1.downvote
Hasn't been needed so far, but in the future who knows...
(I don't feel strongly about this, just been in the back of my mind. Maybe I'm just too used to reddit.)

I'd hire the first guy, he's got his shit together.
Second guy is going to accidentally shoot his partner in the back some day.
"No, thanks Juan, I'll do this one by myself. I'm fine..."

I really thought the other guy was going to shoot the peach-shirt friend.
2 friends pointing guns at each other and joking around.... (recipe for disaster)

Coca-Cola Bottle gets Shot by la Policía. by iTryAndFail in WatchPeopleDie

1) This is a good example that the movies, with every bad-guy dropping with 1 bullet, is not like real life.
2) This is the amount of restraint I would like to see police using before shooting (depending of the situation of course).
Got a baby with a knife to its throat... (swak him!)
Got a knife, a bottle of cola, and obviously drunk/high... (let's see if we can work this out first) That cop really didn't want to shoot that guy.

Because this WPD has so few users, I tend to lurk and not comment as much as back on reddit wpd. With so few users, don't want to take the chance of ruffling anyone's feathers. I assume, as the number of users increases, there will naturally be more conversation = a sense of community again. (it is quiet here so far, but not toxic either)

I don't feel it has been overused (requests). Actually surprised by how quickly the community is able to find links to the requested video.
The sub is slowly growing, but still very small compared to reddit days. So my personal opinion is "It's fine. Doesn't bother me at all."

10-year-old boy fatally struck at Brooklyn bus stop by DoctorsHateHim in WatchPeopleDie

" The boy was thrown at least 5 feet." - huh, why even write this? I could throw a 10-year-old at least 5 feet with just my arms. I'm sure the scaffolding was the only thing stopping it from being 30 feet.

Two dead and a woman shot up. Russian speakers, please help translate what's up. by SFinTX in WatchPeopleDie

EMTs sure aren't in any hurry.
Wouldn't getting tourniquets on her legs come first? Maybe around the thighs, foot/shins are obviously fuqed up. Probably thirsty because of loss of blood. (Asking. I am not an EMT.)

Did that same security guard also shoot wildly 2 lanes over to the right (into a row of cans) near some normal customers??

Nope.

Man With Really Bad Accuracy At A Shooting Range by death in WatchPeopleDie

[–]JamesHamilton 5 insightful - 2 fun5 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Went to Guam; enjoyed the beach, hiking, shooting range. The owner of the range was really jittery (and was making me nervous). After shooting there for quite a while, he started to loosen up and talk normally. Told me it happens from time to time, so he tries to watch carefully. "Ordered a day for 2, but only he showed up alone. Kind of quiet and introverted. Shot a couple of rounds before turning it on himself... These people think it is convenient out here away from peers. But we have to deal with it! I don't want me or my staff to ever have to see that! I try to watch for any clues on the drive over here. Just last week I told the guy, 'Sorry, we can't do it today.'"
