Maybe he should have used the Biden Doctrine and just fired two shotgun blasts into the air. No need to dispatch anyone. When someone calls 911 and says they just heard two shotgun blasts, the operator can calmly tell them that’s a neighbor deploying the Biden Doctrine and not to worry. Save the local police a lot of embarrassment and resources.
Reminds me of American History X character Derek Vinyard. Probably has a poster of him up on his bedroom wall.

They should have refunded this guys money without any issue. They should also have their safety policies available at the front gate before entering the park. I’m sure Jackel could have looked this up on Six Flags website before going. I can’t believe it didn’t cross his mind that he may not be allowed on some rides that he might be thrown from for his own safety. No reason to reduce the guy to tears. Bad management. If they were smart, they would modify or introduce exciting rides for our wounded vets.

I wouldn’t recommend it. Only if you are ordered to get out of the vehicle.

They didn’t tell you the deputy was only 24 years old. How experienced could he be? I couldn’t count the shots he fired, but sounded like he emptied his weapon and only hit Mr. Canipe once. Where did the other shots go? He’s lucky he didn’t shoot the old lady in the back of the head or someone in the oncoming traffic. Deputy Knox needs more training. Canipe lived, but he should not have gotten out of his truck. He probably thought he could talk his way out of ticket if the officer saw him with a cane. Knox needs to find another line of work.
So now, we are not even "allowed" to get out of our cars huh? Or we get shot for it, right?

As long as we are speculating…It’s hard to believe the NSA, CIA or US Military that is monitoring the air space and the air waves have no knowledge of this with all our technology. In 1983 when the Soviets shot down Korean Air 007, American officials knew what happened and who did it but didn’t come forward for days with the proof. The Soviets denied it for days until the Reagan Administration provided the audio of the exchange between he Soviet ground commander and the interceptor pilot. That’s when the Ruskies came clean. Back then everyone seemed surprised by our capability. Even in 1983 we were listening in and it’s only gotten better since then. I think a small group of military and gov officials know what happened but can’t say for fear of revealing how we know and the blowback that would surely follow.
The article must be referring to Black Christians. I have 3 kids and all worked the local restaurants in high school and college. They all said Black customers were the worst tippers and customers. They were the most demanding and rude. They would often sit in groups of ten or more then want the check split up 6 ways to get around the 18 or 20% gratuity for large parties. They are also the most likely to complain to the management, hoping to get their meal comp’d. If I owned a restaurant I wouldn’t hesitate to ask them to leave if they treated any of my staff rudely. The problem today is that too many managers are afraid to confront them.

Lazy Fat A$$ Cops. They should be fired from the force. That isn’t anyway to treat a citizen. She was no threat. If that was my daughter I’d be suing the Austin Police Dept.

So what is Governor Kasich (a conservative) and the state assembly ( controlled by republicans) doing to uphold and protect Mr. Washington’s constitutional rights, that are being violated by the out of control thugs wearing badges in a democrat stronghold of Cleveland? What good does it do for Republicans to have power if they are not willing to use it to protect people from government abuse. Even the Attorney General in Ohio is a republican. You’d think with all these republicans in power they would be able to right a wrong without this guy having to sue the city of Cleveland to get his gun back.

First of all, I couldn’t understand a damb word the cop was saying. Good thing there was English Subtitles with the video. I’m glad I wasn’t driving through that check point, because when he got to my car I probably would have started laughing. I would have asked him to repeat everything he said to me, until I understood what he was saying. Then he would have thought I was drunk or on drugs, which would have made me laugh even more. Having said that, both the driver and the cops went too far.

No one wants to hear what Gibbs has to say. They already know what he’s going to say. He’s preaching to the choir. This is nothing more than a open pay off to loyal dems like Gibbs to keep them on the reservation. The people that he is speaking to are already democrat organizations and party backers. He’s not changing anyones mind or telling them inside information. Obama picks up the phone and puts the word out to take care of his boy Gibbs or any other ex official. It’s a pay off to keep their mouths shut regarding any scandals or dirt they have. Keep them happy until Obama’s out of office and beyond. There is no way they would pull down that much cash unless it was already sanctioned from the guy at the top.
Liberals will pay to sniff that little green cloud following him around. He brown noses Obama and Liberals brown nose him. Hope he doesn't stop to fast or they will pay to loose their heads.
"No one wants to hear what Gibbs has to say."
Since they've paid him over two million dollars to hear what he has to say, I guess you are wrong.
Great comment. Agree 100%
Not as much as Nancy and Reid and the rest of the inside traders in House and Senate.
My bet most was paid for with our money.
If Robert was on fire, I would not cross the street to relieve myself. Nothing truthful about him!
They would also pay to sniff that brown thing, where they
get their brown noses.
If he turns to quickly, their noses will look worst than Zimmerman's.
This also goes for all of you left-wing trolls, that hang out here.
Apparently some morons with deep pockets do. Personally I would give two cents to hear what he has to say.
And we care about this total leftist idiotic progressive, why????????????????
This administration makes me so ill because of its evil that Judgement Day will be FULL of these people, standing before God MAKES EXCUSES AND GIVING LIES, as they always do. Simply pathetic to even show this horrid man on this web site.
But, I digress. WHO CARES ABOUT THIS? DO YOU?
He is nothing but a hollowed out Sucubus.
I agree ,who cares
BobbyDunderHeadGibbs is from Alabama.
Alabama should be so sad it produced such a sad sack of ******
Gibbs is a machine of verbal diarrhea imploding full of zero's agenda.
He's ugly too.
It pays to be a paid liar....who knew ?
Robert FIBS as El Rushbo would say. Next giving classes at your kids college or university on how to lie and seriously brown nose for fun and profit----I'd love to see the syllabus for that one----anybody care to speculate on which school will be salivating to do it?
Every time I see this a$$ clown all I can think of is a toilet seat with the cowardly Kenyan sitting on it taking a healthy Carney.

The jury won’t have the guts to acquit Zimmerman. They will find him guilty on a lesser charge because they are afraid to acquit him. Afraid for their own safety and they don’t want to be responsible for rioting in south Florida. They will take the cowardly way out and find him guilty of manslaughter, which will be overturned on appeal. So in the end, Zimmerman will walk after an Appeals court overturns the verdict. He may eventually win, but he will be broke, bankrupt, in debt, unemployed and ruined. The message will have been sent by the government to gun owners. You may have a right to own one, but if you use it to protect yourself, we will prosecute you and ruin your life. Message sent and received.

The judge is in the tank for the prosecution. She has her thumb on the scale of justice. I would hope that the Governor and Florida Attorney General are watching and will take appropriate action if this judge has crossed any legal or ethical lines during this trial. They have every right to pick up the phone and let her know that her rulings are being looked at and that she will have to answer to a judicial review committee to see if she is fit to be a judge.

The story says NBC late night host. Isn’t he actually at TBS? He used to be an NBC years ago. Maybe they meant “Former NBC late night host”

Senate Republicans justify these appointments by saying “the President gets to pick his cabinet”, so they quote, give him wide latitude or deference. I say BS. Their job is to advise and consent. If they are just going to rubber stamp all comers then no one is unqualified for these positions. We need to have higher standards no matter who the president is or what party he belongs to. I thought republicans were going to block him unless they get answers on Benghazi? Business as usual in Washington.
March 5, 2013 at 5:21pm
Burn in hell Hugo…and while your there, say hi to Ted Kennedy, John Murtha and Robert Byrd. Tell them Nancy and Harry aren’t too far behind.

The democrats are exploiting this guy. If Heslin believes what he is saying, then he is as dumb as he looks and sounds. He’s obviously not the sharpest tool in the shed, but the dems have no problem trotting him out there to do their bidding. He’s a useful idiot to the democrats and a willing participant. Maybe he’s been told that Tom Hanks will play him when they release the Sandy Hook movie. He’s a low info voter who votes for these goons, who would tell him how to live his life and he’s be happy to accept it.
Photographer: "Excuse me, could we get a snapshot of you holding your picture and crying? Maybe if you'd use your hand to wipe a tear away. Oh, that's perfect. This should tug a John and Mary's heartstrings."

Mr Heflin is too stupid to know that he is being used as a useful idiot by the left. I listened to his testimony and found it lacking in thought. Just a bunch of rambling on about guns he obviously knows nothing about. It was a sad and pathetic performance. I’m sorry he lost his son. It was a tragedy. But what he and the dems are trying to do, would not have prevented Adam Lanza from killing those kids. Mr Heflin’s thinking is being guided by emotion not logic. Knock off the weeping too, I’m not buying it. There were 19 other parents who lost their child and the dems have to settle for a misinformed and grieving Mr. Heflin to carry out their anti-gun campaign.

There’s no double Wallace treated Mark Kelly with deference and respect but did not extend the same courtesy to Mr. LaPierre. But LaPierre has been the spokeman for the NRA for 22 years and the NRA is routinely villanized by the media. LaPierre brings this on himself by not being preparred. He’s just not good at being interviewed and he hurts the NRA by being the face of the NRA. That’s why the NRA should get a new spokesman.
Who's bankrolling Mark Kelly? The guy sounded as if he came to the show right from the White House.
Kelly is being played like a fiddle. We should all know why Holder targeted his wife and Judge Rolle.
I agree. I was disappointed with Wayne. He never once mentioned how many lives are SAVED by guns used by law abiding citizens. And why didn't he mention the fact that only 323 people were killed with any kind of rifle last year? Then show some stats showing how many are killed by other means. We do need a better spokesperson.
@FirMan, "how many lives are SAVED by guns used by law abiding citizens" is a good thing NOT to mention because it's not a number that can be publicly defended. Professor Gary Kleck's "2.5 million defensive gun uses per year" is only sustained by the professorate. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gary_Kleck
AND, who do you trust?

While President Obama argues that lack of health insurance is a big problem in the U.S., no study has ever suggested that lack of health insurance contributes to more than 50,000 deaths in the U.S. each year. In contrast, Obama's own Department of Health and Human Services reported in 2010 that 180,000 Medicare patients die each year as a result of medical errors. In addition, the report found 1.6 million were harmed by medical errors each year. However, more recent research suggests the 180,000 deaths per year may be a gross underestimate and Medicaid patients may receive even lower quality care.
Doughuffman: He can’t mention that MANY lives are saved without giving an exact scientific number? That’s ridiculous. But it’s ok for Mark Kelly to say that a girl wouldn’t had died had Loughner only had a 10 shot clip. Tha’ts pure speculation. Hence the need to counter that by speculating how many lives might be saved by guns. Kinda like how many jobs were “saved “by the stimulus. What’s good for the goose…Get it?
@doughuffman--wikipedia is NOT a reliable source for any argument--totally subjective and plagued by dis-information...
try this instead as a reason why the numbers of gun related data are manipulated--its not a conspiracy its just a gap in the data collection by investigators...

LaPierre invites the kind of treatment he gets on these programs. He’s easy to slap around because he is not prepared and just not good at it. So guys like Wallace and Schieffer and Gregory can’t resist to take shots at him. LaPierre needs to hire a debate coach if he continues to insist he be the spokesman for the NRA. Maybe hire a PR firm and find a new spokesperson. How about someone who is telegenic with a smile and with good body language. The guy looks so uncomfortable, like he’s having a prostate exam while he’s struggling to make his case.
