"Like, park in a legal parking spot, and walk the rest of the way."
...or take a cab! If they parked out, they could cab-pool. Most cabs will hold 5 people.

My father is a retired CRNA (Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist). He’s told me that they have some interesting humor in the operating rooms sometimes, but if he ever heard another one of his coworkers talking like that to an anesthetized patient. He’d have reported them.
Even tho the guy in the story had a recorded conversation on his phone. My father told me that you never know what a patient might be able to hear while they’re under anesthesia. Some people have atypical reactions to anesthesia, and don’t go under completely.
My dad used a BIS Monitor (brain wave monitor) to monitor how deeply a patient was under, and to be able to tell when they were coming out of anesthesia. He was one of the few anesthetists/anesthesiologists at his hospital who bothered using the BIS. He always wanted to make sure his patients were being properly anesthetized, and not feeling any pain or anxiety during a procedure.
Or that he wanted to make sure the patient was in a status to never remember the trash talk that went on. ;-)
I am one of the atypicals with anesthetic. I heard them working on me during a cesarean. I woke up fully and could not move. Very painful. And, other times what they were saying.
I can vouch for that from personal experience. During my colonoscopy twice last summer I nearly woke up from the pain.

I almost drowned in the wave pool at Oceans Of Fun in Kansas City, and I was on the edge of the pool, right below the area where that life guard was standing. Trying to climb out on the ladder. Every time I tried to climb up the ladder, I’d get sucked back down. The lifeguards need to look down at the ladders sometimes.
I was about to go completely under when someone on the side above me noticed, and got the lifeguard. I never got back in one of those wave pools ever again. By the way, I was twelve, and a fairly good swimmer…just no experience in swimming in waves like that.
Kids who have never had experience swimming in waves should not go in pools like that until they’ve been instructed how to swim in waves, and kids who are not strong swimmers should not go in one of those pools until they have more swimming experience.

I think a lot of people are having a “causation and correlation” problem.
A lot of racists are white. But, white skin doesn’t cause racism. Racism is caused by ignorance. Anyone, *of any color* can be a racist.
Just because this guy is white, a racist, and a slimeball murderer, does not mean that all white people should feel guilty about what he’s done just because they’re white.
Lets also not forgot that their a LOT of black racists as well.....
Black panthers etc.
Even some in the white house.......
Racism is not a white condition it is a human condition.
But the black panthers are a right wing hate group.
The SPLC said so.
Of course "we" don't feel guilty. While I am of European descent ("white"), I am also a Christian and a non-racist. As I imagine many of you are as well. That means we were targets for this sick man who wanted us to be divided. We will not be divided! But what we also shouldn't do is nothing. We should show solidarity so the racists cannot drive a wedge between us. I think what the Senator is advocating for is righteous cause. We don't have to feel guilty as a Samaritan do go out of our way to help a Jewish man broken and beaten on the side of the road.
I have met more black racists than white racists. Perhaps if churches were more integrated it may help people meet on more level ground and they can work with each other every day. I love my black, Filipino and white friends because we get to know each other in church where we all worship and serve together.
I disagree that racism is caused by ignorance. Ignorance is cured by knowledge. Once you have the explanation for something, you are no longer ignorant, and should understand how to behave accordingly. It has been explained since the 1860′s that people with dark skin color are just that – people – but some have just refused to get it. Racism is an evil, no matter from which direction it comes (and you will find clear, contemporary examples of racism in every ethnic group). Evil is something that, by its very nature, cannot be reasoned with. I think the senator’s display of love was terrific, and powerful, because he made it public.

Wow, she’s got a better imagination than Brian Williams does. (Well, not really)
“the hackers stole military records and veterans’ status information, address, birth date, job and pay history, health insurance, life insurance, and pension information; age, gender, race data.”
Seems like it, unfortunately. Why do we have people that can’t even make a dang website over secure data like that?!

I don’t know what it was that sliced that dog’s head open. It was the top of the skull, kind of between the ears. I was petting her, and felt something on her head. Looked a little closer, and you could actually see the top of her skull. My aunt is a nurse tho, and knows how to do stitches, and also knows how to use surgical super glue for stitches. (my aunt has a really well stocked first aid kit) So, she was able to treat the dog herself. The vet said she did a great job on it.
We’re pretty sure it was the aunt’s next door neighbor that killed/hurt the dogs. The wife, the day she left her husband for 2yrs, dumped dog poop (probably 40pounds worth) in my front yard, and on my aunt’s back patio. I have no idea where she got the dog poo. (well, it was poo. Maybe it wasn’t from dogs?) She had two dogs herself, but she let them run loose, and never cleaned up after them.
She came back a year or two after my aunt got her last dog. That dog started having problems then. Aunt had to check her yard before letting the dog out. If it was the neighbor, she’s insane. No idea what she used, because none of the usual suspected poisons came up on my dog’s bloodwork. We didn’t do a necropsy to look deeper, because we didn’t suspect poisoning right away.. Wish we had done the necropsy now. I don’t like the mystery.

I do actually have a suspect. The neighbors that live next door to my aunt. (aunt lives across the street from me). My dog died mysteriously, and quickly in 2006 after eating something in that neighbor’s yard. He pretty much dragged me into the yard to get whatever it was. He was dead a couple of days later. Aunt’s dog was sick off and on for two years before she died. After she died (on the 2yr anniversary of mine dying) my aunt and I compared notes. We think the dogs were poisoned.
My aunt’s second dog also was getting sick with similar symptoms. (she got the dog after the first one died). So, she started to supervise the dog when it was outside. Aunt kept finding hot dogs on her back porch.
Several years ago, that same dog got out (aunt’s grandkids accidentally let her out), and when she came back inside. I found that her head had been sliced open. Down to the skull. (that was a creepy feeling). It was such a clean slice, it had to be deliberate. There wasn’t any blood tho. Which was weird.
Aunt just lost that dog 2 weeks ago. But, it was kennel cough (bordatella) that got her. Cousin had gotten a new dog last year. It came with kennel cough. Infected my aunt’s dog. (dog was vaccinated. Those don’t always work). Dog kept getting worse. Never really recovered. Aunt had to put her down 2 weeks ago. Can’t blame the neighbor for that one tho.

This makes me miss my dog. More than once, he put himself between me and another dog that was trying to attack me. (on at least three separate occasions. My neighbors were jerks, and wouldn’t keep their dogs contained). Never felt as safe as I did when he was with me. Best dog ever.
I’d have done the same for him. If someone was trying to hurt him. (someone did end up hurting him tho. Our neighborhood has a serial dog killer in it. They poisoned my dog, and my aunt’s dog. No idea who it is that’s killing the neighborhood dogs)
I am so sorry to hear that. That is heartbreaking. I hope whoever that sick s o b is gets what they have coming to them. If not in this life then the next.
"I’d have done the same for him. If someone was trying to hurt him. (someone did end up hurting him tho. Our neighborhood has a serial dog killer in it. They poisoned my dog, and my aunt’s dog. No idea who it is that’s killing the neighborhood dogs)"
Someone did the the same thing to our Samoyed and we were almost certain we knew it was some of the neighborhood bullies, one of which wound up gay and years later died of AIDS and another (his brother) also years later, wound up in prison for rape.

It will be, like most serial killers, a well respected and liked member of the community. Don't rule out age or gender. People who grow up to murder people start with animals. Also had to be someone with access to both your dog and your aunts.poisoning is done by people who are passive aggressive, sneaky and unable to face problems or confrontations directly. Place a.camera facing the dog bowl and buy a new " bait" puppy. But don't let him at the dish. Ethylene glycol poisoning can be cured with large amounts of strong alcohol over three days or so. It breaks up the crystals in the kidneys.

my insurance changed, became hugely expensive, AND they made me lose my doctor when that happened too. (I have chronic medical conditions). I ended up having to find another insurance company. (only part about the law that I like is the ability to switch companies). The new insurance company allows me to see my doctor, and claims it’s cheaper than the old policy at the old company was.
I’m still fully expecting to be screwed over financially soon because of all this tho.

Just because you say it Hillary, doesn’t make it true.
Both her and Obama seem to think they can make up these stories, and say them often enough that it’s true. It’s not, but if they keep saying it people will still believe it is.
Hillary should “Stop fear-mongering about the phantom threat of election fraud.”
I wish I could say that no one could be fooled any more by this moronic tactic, that the average person can see right through it, but unfortunately, it worked for Thad Cochran.
Note to Hillary supporters: If you only had any idea how stupid she is assuming you are!
I will translate for Hillary
"Democrat and Liberal and uninformed voters are SO STUPID that they can't get Photo ID in order to vote. I know they need it when they sign up for Food Stamps and when they buy alcohol but it is TOO MUCH to ask them for photo ID when it comes to electing officials that determine who runs the country" --
IF I WERE A DEMOCRAT I would be ANGRY that HILLARY JUST CALLED YOU STUPID
But thank God I am not a Democrat.
My dad was a Republican all his life and voted Republican until he died - but now for some reason he votes Democrat

I think 0bama and Kerry are both delusional morons, who are both off their meds, and need to go back into their adjoining padded rooms where they can watch Rev Al mispronounce words on an endless loop.
Hoping Kerry’s broken leg forces him to quit, and that by some lucky chance we’ll get someone else put in his place that knows what he’s doing that can somehow convince Zero that what he’s doing is the stupidest plan anyone has ever thought of.
I know that’s a pipe dream tho.

I think she was already a hero, from everything that we’ve learned about her in the news.
I noticed that we’re not hearing all that much about the scum that killed her. There does seem to be a gang war starting up in Omaha. I hope we don’t see more cops getting shot. I think Obama wa triggered a lot of the animosity towards the cops on purpose.

The news said that the funeral procession was more than seven miles long, and took an hour and a half, to two hours to wind through Omaha and Council Bluffs. I think I heard them say there were over 400something squad cars, a lot from out of state, in the procession.
I have never seen a local turnout like this for a funeral before. I wish we were honoring her with an award for something heroic, rather than having a funeral.
well, consider what her shortened life has done in opening the eyes of people across America. Maybe she has done in this terrible death something really important for many.
Google Ghetto Storm and scroll thru the bold face titles and the highlighted and the dates...There is quite an organized effort to get the cops and especially white cops. Right there in black and white...
Just like the Alinsky BHO taught as a prof. or was he an instructional aid?
Hopefully her funeral will help unify our country. There's an element of heroism to that.

They said on the news tonight that the thug shot Officer Orozco with a 9mm Glock pistol that had a FIFTY ROUND DRUM MAGAZINE in it! Only one of the cops was able to shoot back, and thankfully got the guy. The slug that hit Officer Orozco hit her in the upper chest, and went out thru her back. They found it in her vest. The only person using 9mm ammo was the felon. The police chief said this was a justified shooting of the suspect.
Whenever I hear of high capacity magazines, I just assumed they held something like fifteen rounds. I never knew they made a magazine that looks like it belongs more on a tommy gun, than it does on a 9mm pistol.

Most of the thugs are in North Omaha…with Sen Ernie Chambers, who said a few months ago that he thinks that the Omaha police are worse than members of ISIS.
The term limits didn’t do enough to get rid of old Ernie. (he had to take a break from the Unicameral for a few years, before he could go back and screw more stuff up…like repealing the death penalty today)

they said on the news that she was wearing a protective vest, but the bullet hit her above the top of the vest.
I was across the street from the hospital at the Creighton Cardiac Center when the ambulances arrived to take her to the trauma center. I have never seen that many cops in one place before. They had so many cops there, and the looks on most of their faces was heartbreaking. I think they knew it was going to end up the way it did. Everyone looked so sad, but businesslike and professional.
My dad had told me when he worked in the trauma center, what would happen whenever there was a shooting on the North side of Omaha. The police have to basically take over security for the hospital, because family and friends of the suspect(s) will also descend on the building, and sometimes go looking for revenge. I never believed my dad how scary things like that look when that happens until now.
Hopefully I won’t witness the sadness on all those police officers faces ever again.
I feel really bad that she will never get to see her baby daughter come home, and that her baby will never know her mom.
Sadly Erin, just because you don't witness it, doesn't mean it doesn't happen every day in good old USA. #Coplivesmatter!

I grew up ten miles away from Offutt Air Force Base. We had drills a couple times a year to go to the basements of the school. (This was in the mid70′s). Sometime in the mid80′s they stopped calling it air raid drills, and started calling them tornado drills.
 May 12, 2015 at 2:15pm
what those kids did pretty much fits the definition of “thug” behavior. Hope they go to jail, but they’ll just get a slap on the wrists. Maybe not even a slap, because that would be a “cruel and unusual punishment” according to the liberals.
Wonder if the ladies got paid 72 cents to the $ for their share in comparison to the male muggers from the guys wallet. *watches it flop empty in front of his face in the video*

The 11 month old was returned to his family tonight, and his father, who was being held for immigration violations was freed tonight so that he could be with his son.
The search for the five year old was suspended for the night. There was a very bad rainstorm the night that they think the kid was tossed into the Elkhorn river. So, it’s probably going to be a long search, and I think the forecast for tomorrow evening is for rain.
The older half brother has been arrested on first degree murder charges. His mother had been stabbed at least 26 times. The mother’s niece said something about the 25yr old’s girlfriend did not like the mother. The niece also said that the 25yr old had been begging the family for money before the murder(s)
Nebraska has the death penalty, at least for the moment. Really hoping this jerk gets the needle. (wish it was still Old Sparky)
