Chillins these days just don’t get it…
1. Don’t tug on superman’s cape.
2. Don’t spit into the wind.
3. Don’t pull the mask of the Lone Ranger.
4. Don’t mess around with Jim (or Slim).
5. Don’t do the equivalent of flipping off a gorilla by pounding your chest at him. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4qUXcXuMSE
Open your eyes kids. Think before you act, and if you don’t think before you act…don’t complain about it when reality goes upside your head.
DO YOU HEAR THAT OBAMA!!!
Mess with the bull…get the horns.

The tower may be a college drop out, may be missing teeth and may not be on TV….but she ain’t walkin’
You would be amazed at how many stupid people do stuff like this. I used to work on a charter boat when I was younger and I hated the wale watching trips I would have to stop parents all the time from holding their kids over the railings to get a better look. That and they were bad tippers and with out tips my crew share was less than minimum wage.
Yep, they'll remove those "free range" children from their parents but will allow this "mother of the year" to keep her little darling. I'll bet those "free range" children have better sense than to try to get into the cheetah pen. I hope the zoo does sue her and wins.

I wouldn’t subject my parakeet to such an indignity.
They pepper sprayed both occupants of the vehicle. You cannot spray teargas into a car and get all the occupants.
So cops can only use any type of force on people if they are armed? You clearly don't understand the use of force continuum. You bring fists to a fight and cops bring pepper spray, Tasers and batons. You bring a knife, they bring guns. You bring a gun, they bring more guns. This is not Marquis of Queensberry rules.
Los2000, You really are a special kind of stupid aren't you?
It would have stopped as soon as the kid complied. Self inflicted torture, maybe.
If he had done nothing wrong then get out of the car as the cop asks. What you don't know is he has a previous drug conviction & both he & the driver were charged with possession. He also got intent to distribute. The cops said they smelled marijuanna & the 2 lied & said they didn't. I don't know what you want Los but pepper spray & tasers are non-lethal. Should they get into a physical altercation with the teenager? Would that make it more likely their gun would be taken?
What is cut and dried is the fact that mommas boy should have followed the Officers direction. The police don't have to wait for momma.
Not saying they were right but when someone repeatedly refuses to comply with an Officers orders that is usually what happens. I am not going to fight and tussle trying to get him out of the car. Non-Lethal force is used to gain compliance with a lawful order.

Firing is not sufficient. Burger King should give her job back….so they can fire her again.
I can’t help but wonder what would have happened if that CFO Adam Smith had a run in with this employee.

Assault with a deadly weapon…25 years in jail for you.
BT 1000 at it again.

And if the child decides to discuss the test with there parents anyway what is the penalty? Last I heard a contract signed by a minor is not enforceable.
Get your children out of the government run schools people!

Polly, quite right. Not only that but unlike California, the reservoir infrastructure has been built up sufficiently enough that Arizona doesn’t have to depend as much on ground water anymore. We’ve had a lot of surpluses coming from our share of the Colorado River since 1996, and have been using it to replenish the underground water. Also, Arizonians consistently practice using water saving landscaping techniques such as utilizing native plants, and highly efficient drip irrigation systems.
Another thing that has saved Arizona a whole lot of water is a lot of the citrus and peach orchards that surrounded the Phoenix area have been shut down. While I think that is a great loss to see all those orchards turned into housing areas, it does save a lot of water.
Water projections for Arizona are quite good. We certainly are not in the same boat as California who has foolishly not built up their infrastructure. But hey…at least you’ll have plenty of snail darters, minnows and owls to keep you company.

50 stings? They got off easy. Stupid is it’s own reward.
"I'd rather be dead in California than alive in Arizona."
What Arizona water? After you get about an hour south of Flagstaff, there isn't any water. Arizona has been sucking it up from elsewhere for decades. The Phoenix and Tucson areas have been vastly overpopulated and overdeveloped. The DESERT was never meant to support that much humanity.
I used to visit Arizona fairly regularly from the mid-1980s to the early 2000s. The change over time was dramatic and not always very appealing.
