Hold on to your butts.
It was in Wisconsin and Congressman Sensenbrenner from WI has introduced a new piece of legislature. Here’s the text from his website:
Congressman Sensenbrenner: “Washington should be responsible stewards of the American taxpayers’ money. While all too often that is not the case, this is a good…
Not a real change. Feds will Fed, with or without Dept of Treasury DNA in the agency.
But disbanding the ATF is something I can get behind just out of spite.
We must do it if it saves just one dog.
It’s a start…
I forgot football was on tonight, I tune in just in time to see Devin Hester break the all time punt return touchdown record, which also put Atlanta up on Tampa Bay 35-0.
Other than that, there isn’t much left to watch for in this game, is there…
Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, took to the Senate floor Thursday, blasting the congressional plan to arm and train Syrian rebels as “illegal” and “unconstitutional.” Paul says it doing so will only lead to more chaos in an already chaotic Middle East. He also promised to never send soldiers over there.
A 19-year-old man told Palm Beach County sheriff’s deputies he was “having fun” urinating on cars and walking in traffic Tuesday night.
Eric Revello’s “fun” ended in arrest. He faces charges of battery on an officer, battery on EMT, resisting an officer and escape.
Deputies were called to the 300 block of Maryland Drive, near the city’s College Park district, where they were told a man was urinating on cars. According to a report made public Tuesday, Revello’s mother told deputies she tried to get him help in the past, and even had him hospitalized under the state’s Baker Act, but didn’t let him in her home because she feared his violent outbursts.
That’s a shitty concept of “fun” fella.
You could watch the vast majority of military commercials I’ve seen and come away without any sense that the military
- fights wars
- kills people
- actually does anything physically strenuous or dangerous
the commercials make it look like you sign up and basically its like going to ITT Tech but you get paid and you wear a uniform
then when you get out 3 weeks later you are done forever and you get to go pick one of many lucrative private sector jobs
Dallas Cop Watched as Woman’s Kids Taken at Gunpoint, Ignored Her Cries for Help, Drove Off
Dallas, TX — A Dallas police officer is on administrative leave and could actually be fired for ignoring the pleas of a mother whose children were kidnapped at gunpoint.
Two weeks ago, Miesha Kilson was being chased down by a crazed maniac with a gun, Steven Douglas. During the chase Kilson hit a curb which left her vehicle disabled. Douglas then came over to Kilson’s vehicle and proceeded to kidnap her children at gun point.
“He reached into the windows, pulls it out,” said Kilson. “And as the window exploded in my face, I actually thought he shot it; I didn’t know at the time. But I did see his hands up and he pulled [the window] out. And I looked over, and as I looked up out that passenger window, I swear I saw an angel ‘cause I saw a police car right at my car.”
In that police car was 28-year veteran of the Dallas PD, Cpl. Les Richardson. Richardson watched the frantic Kilson begging him for help as her kids were being pulled out of the vehicle by a madman.
“That man [Richardson] looked up, he said, ‘What’s going on?’” said Kilson. “Right at my window, directly. I said, ‘Get him, get him!’ As [Douglas] got the gun, Maya said, ‘Get out, get out!’ [Douglas] saw the policeman, so he moved the gun. He jerked my son out the car. That policeman drove off. He drove off. He didn’t come back.”
After a chase involving other police officers, Douglas was eventually stopped and killed as he attempted to fire on police.
Disciplinary hearings were held Thursday in which Dallas police commanders recommended that Officer Les Richardson be terminated by Chief David Brown. It’s now up to Brown whether to fire Richardson or not.
The four allegations against Richardson are: dereliction of duty, improper comments, failure to immediately clear upon the completion of a call and use of tobacco products in a city vehicle.
These actions, or rather, inaction, by Richardson have set a new low in police misconduct.
The idea that police protect you is a misconception as they will seldom prevent violence. They normally show up after the violence or crime has been committed and then try and find a culprit, or in this case, they just ignore the crime taking place and leave.
The average response time to a 9-1-1 call is 10 minutes nationwide. In some cases the dispatchers do not even take the caller seriously and the victim ends up dead, when a crime could have actually been prevented.
The reality is that police act as revenue collectors for the state and are there to enforce the law only.
They most assuredly do not “protect and serve.”
Richardson may very well stay on the force despite his dereliction, as the Supreme Court ruled that the police do not owe a specific duty to provide police services to individuals based on the public duty doctrine. In other words, police do not have a constitutional duty to protect a person from harm.
