    I live in the west. There are good reasons there are a lot of places where not many people live. Like deserts, and mountains that are higher altitude with rugged terrain, and the higher altitude gets lots of snow and cold in the winter. Having said that, there could be a lot more people living there but I am glad there aren’t more, it would spoil it.

    That group of cops make the 3 Stooges look pretty good.

    That’s what I thought too. It’s a shame to see criminals of that nature escape and potentially if not probably commit more violent crimes where the innocent aren’t as lucky as this time. When they are six feet under they don’t escape or get let out of the cell to try it again.

    They are mentally ill people who would like to run things………………..just say no to them.

    Grandma, you may be assuming too much. The woman may have simply not had any more time or opportunity to react than the man did. She was lucky no matter how you look at.

    She may not have been in a position to draw her weapon in time, and may have been lucky he didn’t shoot her. Stories often do not reveal all the details of exactly how something happens. Whether she actually was in control of the situation or not is not known for certain, but if he was able to draw his pistol and shoot himself he could have conceivably shot her instead.

    Regarding “Christians”, there is nothing in the bible to suggest that women should keep their breasts covered anymore than men should keep theirs covered, or that either one is morally reprehensible or acceptable. There is also nothing that suggests Christians are responsible for overseeing behaviour other than their own or demanding certain behaviour from other people. That doesn’t mean people have to like it and can’t have their own personal opinions, but it is just that; their own opinion that may be shared with others but it is not backed by the bible.

    I have been to places where “native” women are even topless in churches (mainstream denominations) while attending services or church functions. People get used to it real fast and find out it is no big deal, and life goes on just fine. The same with many beaches where there can be many topless women.

    I have been to many places where women don’t wear tops. It has never shocked me………what does shock me is how many people think if a woman doesn’t wear a top she is without morals and the end of the world is near, yet men without shirts is perfectly fine. There is no logical basis for that.

    I agree that a lot of shootings are less dramatic than movies depict, but in real life much depends on what they get shot with.

    A smallish hole in the stomach (like a simple puncture wound) with no major bleeding as a result usually will take a while to kill. It will kill, just slowly unless it is properly treated. Ball ammo or low expanding bullets from a lightweight like a .380, 9mm, are small, relatively slow and produce cleaner bullet wounds that people often survive, even on occasional head shots. That’s why I don’t favor them.

    Then there are the better handgun cartridges with good hollowpoints that do produce more serious wounds.

    Big game size rifle cartridges with certain bullets that will quickly stop virtually every man alive with a solid hit in the stomach. On top of the massive damage along the main bullet path, enough of the bullet fragments tend to end up in the chest. It’s like a small grenade going off in the abdomen, and the odds of doing anything after that except to quickly hit the ground for the last time are not good.

    The bible does say what is acceptable and makes it clear that having homosexual relations is an undesirable thing to God. (Romans 1:26, 27 Galatians 5:19-21) If you believe the bible is God’s word and have a problem with that take it up with him. If you don’t believe the bible is God’s word, why would you even care about being a Christian?

    The bible doesn’t say that we should condemn the person (at least in the new testament) and “cast stones” (at least in a literal sense), but the bible itself condemns certain actions calling them sins. If someone wants to be a “Christian” then I would think they would try to avoid what the bible says is wrong. Do you think it is ok for the Catholic priests to have homosexual or heterosexual relations with children? How about teachers doing the same, or any other person for that matter? Are you saying that we should we ignore that sort of behavior?

    The bible encourages people to make changes in their lives to comply to certain standards, and it also tells people to be patient and loving towards one another. But it also makes it clear that there is to be an accounting for our actions, Jesus’s sacrifice doesn’t cover all sins, and that those willfully giving in to condemned desires are pushing the boundaries pretty hard.

    As I mentioned before I do not claim to be Christian or even religious per se, but for those who do claim to be Christian and want to legitimize things such homosexuality I would think they sho

    Deipnosophist, if he was gay I would still think he was brave and determined to help himself. I would also think he was wrong about his choice to be a homosexual. I get really tired of all the gay propaganda, but you asked. Keep in mind as you read this I do not consider myself to a Christian. To call someone a Christian implies they follow Christ and biblical teachings. According to the bible, homosexuals ARE NOT exemplary Christians, so YES he absolutely would be less of a Christian. Why people want to call themselves Christians, but do not want to do what Christ says is wrong is beyond me. If you are a homosexual and want to be a Christian, decide what you want most because you can’t really be both.

    What situation would be appropriate for an officer to ram someone like that? If they were a real threat and needed to be restrained or taken into custody for some reason, and that’s what it took to do it because they had a weapon or were physically imposing then that might be acceptable. A woman of her size, build, and body “language” makes me skeptical that was the situation. Another thing that makes me skeptical is if they (cops) had a legitimate reason to immediately neutralize her they would have also had an immediate reason to place her in cuffs and the officer who rammed her would have also hollered for assistance right away.

    While I believe people should be given the benefit of the doubt, the only criminal action I saw was by the officer. Even if she needed to arrested or detained for some legitimate reason(s), there are few plausible explanations that would justify his actions.

    JanMoi, you would need to ask the woman why she wanted to kill it. Different people have different reasons. I personally kill game animals for food, and I enjoy the outdoors and the hunt. Some people actually enjoy the meats of lions, I have ate it and it is pretty good, similar to pork. The article stated that the wildlife managers in the area want to reduce the lion population in that area, they apparently feel that there are too many of them at this time.

    On occasion lions will kill domestic animals and much more rarely people, usually children and women when it does happen. When the big cats hear the shrill voice that women and children are likely to have in because of their fright and then see them run away it makes it more likely that the lions will actually carry out an attack. Many of the animals they are used to preying on act the same way and have higher voices, so it sends a message to the lion that they are “food” and triggers the predator response.

    Mountain lions are territorial and lone animals except for mating time and when a mother has young ones. When populations are high the younger ones are forced from the best habitat by the older and larger cats and then the young ones often end up on the fringes of human occupied areas, which increases the chances of conflict and problems between the lions and humans. Younger cats haven’t developed mature skills as hunters and have a tendency to prey on easier sources of food like domestic animals. As

    A good hit with a pea shooter (not a literal pea shooter) is better than a clean miss with a canon. Having said that, a good hit with a big hollow-point is tough to argue with. Fortunately for this guy they got scared and ran away despite his lack of “stopping” expertise.

  • March 25, 2014 at 6:47am

    Those cops were incompetent cowards. Period. Same for the police chief sticking up for them. If they can’t figure out how to capture a guy like that alive without getting hurt they should all be castrated and be made to clean rest stop bathrooms with their tongues for the rest of their lives for being so stupid.

    Verycobaltviolet, care to enlighten us with some compelling facts or do you just want to spew rhetoric? Many species live across a diverse range of climates and average temperatures, moose included. Elk survive all the way from Alaska to the southwest, the moose lives from Alaska to Nevada, Utah, and Colorado.

    The average temperature varies considerably, yet you want us to believe a rise of 1 degree will cause them to start dropping? The average temperature where I live is considerably warmer than in Minnesota yet moose have survived here, at least until the wolves invaded, now they are a little more scarce. Of course, it may be because of the economy (haha). I could write pages with very specific information and facts, but why waste my time on someone with cranial rectosis?

    He could make Obama look better, but lowering the bar even further is a direction I would rather not go. I am hoping for better and that Obama’s stunts have woke up enough people to turn the tide, but I’m not holding my breath.

    Lots of NYC government turds in the cesspool, don’t be surprised when you run into one.

    So many people here know that moose are large and can be dangerous but are totally clueless as to why and what really happened and can’t see that the guy was clueless too. Moose like their space, just like a grizzly bear. The idiot on the snowmobile charged up close to the moose whooping and clapping his hands, which put the moose in a defensive mode. Expecting to charge right up and scare the moose off was absolute stupidity, no less than had he done that to a large grizzly. Sure, often a grizzly or moose would run away, sometimes they don’t. If it had been a grizzly I suspect most people would see it differently.

    The moose was sticking to the trail because it was easier by far than bucking the deep snow. He didn’t like being forced, but would have wandered or moved away if the guy would have left him some space and given it some time. Having a lot of experience up close with these animals and situation, that is how I see it. This guy put the video up for anyone who really does know about such things that he is an idiot.

    Bull moose get kind of feisty during the rut. That was over months ago. Can’t tell from the poor quality video if this was a bull or cow moose. Bulls drop their antlers every winter. The moose was only aggressive because the ignorant idiot on the snowmobile was.
