Police Officer to Nina Reiser: 'Get Yourself a Gun'

Filed under
Reiser

An Oakland police officer testified at Hans Reiser's murder trial Thursday that he advised Nina Reiser, the wife of the popular Linux programmer, to "get yourself a gun" to protect herself from the man she was divorcing.

"I told her one day, you need to get yourself a gun," the officer testified

The 12 jurors and four alternates latched onto what was by far the most riveting testimony as the computer guru's trial finishes its third week here in Alameda County Superior Court.

"That man used to loom over her, to glare at her," the officer testified.

re: Reiser

Big surprise that the cop labels Han's as having "barely restrained aggression."

According to "Taser Daily", that's 99.999999% of all people a cop will encounter (irregardless of age, sex, wheelchair status, etc.)

//I label all cops as having barely restrained stupidity.

    Today, April 28, 2016, the development team behind the popular FFmpeg open-source and cross-platform multimedia framework has released the second maintenance release in the stable FFmpeg 3.0 "Einstein" series.

  • Using bubblewrap in xdg-app
    At the core of xdg-app is a small helper binary that uses Linux features like namespaces to set up sandbox for the application. The main difference between this helper and a full-blown container system is that it runs entirely as the user. It does not require root privileges, and can never allow you to get access to things you would not otherwise have.
  • Build System Fallbacks
    If you are using Builder from git (such as via jhbuild) or from the gnome-builder-3-20 branch (what will become 3.20.4) you can use Builder with the fallback build system. This is essentially our “NULL” build system and has been around forever. But today, these branches learned something so stupidly obvious I’m ashamed I didn’t do it 6 months ago when implementing Build Configurations.
