As a former long haul trucker, I agree with the cops on this one. In some states signs are clearly posted along mutli-lane highways that it is illegal to drive in the left lane unless you are passing someone. If there is no one on your right, get out of the fast lane or get written up. She should pay the $90 and call it a day – and stay out of the left lane unless she actually needs to be out there. Some drivers need to learn the lesson the hard way.

I am astounded at the number of posts from people who are rooting over a man’s death! What is wrong with you?! This man was killed – and what exactly did he do? According to the article he violated his PROBATION for a drug charge. Did he rob banks? Did he shoot 22 kids in a public school? Did he rape women and children? NO! He violated his PROBATION, not even parole! And for that he died and most of you here applaud his death over such a minor thing. You should be ashamed of yourselves! There’s reason to kill and there’s reason not to. We do not get all of the details about this, such as how close to the farmer the man was standing when he threatened him. Was the man holding anything in his hands which could be used to assault the farmer? Why, exactly, did the farmer choose to fire his weapon and take a life? There’s a lot we don’t know but I do know there is a time to kill and a time to use restraint as a responsible gun owner, and I question this farmer’s actions given the limited information I have from the article. What harm would have been caused if the farmer had let the man go? Now the farmer has to live with the fact that he has killed someone and believe me, he will lose sleep over this. Gun owners have a mighty power and it must be used responsibly at all times.
Thank you!! ONE person on this topic actually gets it. I support the right to bear arms as much as any of you. I have a permit to carry. I also happen to personaly know Joe Lemasters brother-in law. We are co-workers, and he has been in contact with the Kansas sheriff. Joe had NO violent back ground and the drug charge was his first charge of any kind on his record. True, he should of stayed and faced consequences. That is beside the point. To answer your question, Joe was aproximately 6 feet away from the farmer when shot. Also the media has twistes and minced the facts (surprise). It is up to the attorney to file charges, not the sheriff. So I would have to say that more than likely, charges will be filed. Also the farmer and son were not on their OWN property! They tracked him for 30 minutes before findinghim. How bout this... LET THE POLICE DO THEIR JOB! HE WASN'T ON YOUR PROPERTY, NOT YOUR CONCERN FARMER. I believe excess force was used in this situation. With some of the comments I've seen on this board, it's no wonder the libretards have so much fodder to use against the law abiding, gun toting citizens of this great country. Sad really....

Every English-speaking American should be OUTRAGED at this! What is wrong with saying it in English? What is wrong with these speakers of other languages learning English? They are living in a country where the predominant language happens to be…English! If they can’t understand English, then I highly suggest they learn it. I’ve had enough of this bull of bending over and changing everything into other languages just to suit those too ignorant to learn English! Even the Department of Motor Vehicles publishes their materials in ten different languages – so those who don’t speak English can study and take the test, assuming they will even be able to read any street sign once they are driving! I was fed up enough a few years ago when Mexicans were trying to sing OUR National Anthem in Spanish! It is time to put our foot down – especially when our Pledge of Allegiance is being broadcast to our schoolchildren in ARABIC! The enemy speaks Arabic and that should be reason enough not to do it. Stuff your incluciveness. We are Americans and we speak English in this country – get used to it or get out!

@ FREEDOM LOVER: Keep going, you are making a great case that YOU are the idiot. You say that Obama was born in Hawaii – PROVE IT! Nobody else seems able to… Born in the United States does not automatically make one eligible to be president. Natural-born equals being born of a mother and a father BOTH of whom are U.S. citizens when the child is born, no matter what country they are born in. Obama has failed to prove as much, as has Rubio and Jindal. DemocRATS and ******** paid no attention to Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution when they installed Obama (a known Islam sympathizer) so now Republicans and Tea Partiers should pay attention to it? Ha! Don’t think so!
January 8, 2013 at 1:07pm
@MUFFY THE TUFFY, if Obama has a Hawaiian birth certificate, why has he not presented it? He presented three very obvious Photoshop FORGERIES! Obama has not even proved who his REAL father is! Therefore, he also has not proved that he is qualified to be president OR that he is even an American! Looks like some of you people believe what you read in Obama’s books is factual…Obama’s background is a work of fiction. And Obama’s gay, too. Bet you didn’t know that…

What an ass – he gives the guy $20 and let’s him go?!! Are you kidding me? I would’ve punched him in the face and held him for the cops! And before the cops got there I’d have taken $20 from HIM! Now the guy is free to steal phones from other people. Thanks for nothing, jack!

Why doesn’t Bentley come out and say it – they fired the guy because one stinking Muslim complained to management. I’d say that they will never see me buying a Bentley now, but I never could afford their over-priced gas guzzlers in the first place – nor ever had a desire for one…

In this day and age, and considering the message written (there was no further explanation that he just wanted to come to school dressed as Santa), one can understand how it could be misperceived. I don’t blame the parent who reported it to police. I also don’t blame the police for investigating, but that’s as far as this should have gone. (Those of you calling for the outing of the parent should think again – what if this had indeed been a serious threat and everyone ignored it?)
But police escorting him to school? What’s up with that?! I do blame the school principle for choosing to suspend a good student for such a small misunderstanding. He should never have been suspended! Bad Call! The student should have been made aware of how others could misconstrue his Facebook message as something ominous and be told to think about that, keep it in mind. End of story. Suspension was going way overboard.

Plain and simple – Sheila Jackson Lee is an idiot.

Tell me again how someone would fake this? How would they show the baby being lifted into the air and DROPPED onto the ground from around four feet? What mother would allow anyone to do such a thing to her child? You guys who think someone faked this are ridiculous!
December 19, 2012 at 11:38am
Before we jump to conclusions…Is it possible the teamsters flag was on a separate flagpole? The U.S. flag was lowered to half staff in honor of the Sandy Hook murders. It’s easy to twist reality by simply standing in a certain position when you take a photo.

Would psychological screening have worked? Dunno, but let me ask you this: Did that kid buy his weapons and pass background checks (and psychological tests if they were required)?
…Or did he steal the weapons from his mother?…

Arrest anyone for being homeless? Are you insane?! Since when did being homeless become a crime! Arresting the homeless is a huge violation of their civil rights and a violation of the First Amendment, too, might I remind you. That city can think they require a permit but their so-called law will definitely end up in court as soon as they make the first unjust arrest. Maybe I should go there – I’m homeless – and let them arrest me just so I can sue them and make some money off of those taxpayers… (and no, I am not at the library. I am on my own laptop using my own bought and paid for wifi Internet connection. Homeless does not always mean sleeping in the dirt between trees.)
November 23, 2012 at 12:03pm
Police often hate homeless people because we do not have fixed addresses so they know where to go to find us. We have freedoms few other people will ever know. Many homeless are also gun owners and again, the cops hate us because they can’t just drop by the house to confiscate our weapons and ammo.
Homeless does not equate into criminals. If that were so, why are the vast majority of those living in Obamaville’s (tent cities) around the nation still free? Why have they not been placed under arrest?
Because they are good, decent people just like those who live in houses and apartments and go to jobs to earn a living. We do, too, only we don’t suffer under debt like you do.
Many of us just choose to have a better standard of living by keeping more of our hard-earned money to spend on ourselves. I ate at Red Lobster last night and Texas Roadhouse the night before – because I could afford to. Yet I only earn $8 an hour. Go figure. (And no, I do not drink alcohol or illegal drugs, either, just in case you were wondering.)
Walk a mile in my shoes and you may not want to give them back!
By the way, I can also travel for the cost of food and gas because I take my bed with me wherever I go. I don’t need motels. That’s $75 a night I can keep in my pocket to pay for t-bone and prime rib. The cost of gas doesn’t bother me because I have the money to fill up whenever I want to, even at $5 or $6 a gallon.
Think about that.
November 23, 2012 at 11:12am
I laugh at the stupidity of some of comments here. Just bcause someone is homeless some assume they are a slacker or a bum.Well, obviously those people have not had to live on the streets and actually KNOW what you are talking! I have been technically homeless since 1982. I have bought no fewer than 7 used cargo vans over the years and outfitted them as campers and lived in them until they were worn out. In 1999 I bought a small box truck so I could stand up inside. I am a working man with no dependents who chooses to live in alternative means to reduce living costs. I have propane heat, a generator to power the air conditioner, cabinets and closets just like any home, running water and a shower, a 27-inch flat-screen tv, a laptop with Internet connection wherever I go, I have a bed, a stove and kitchen area where I actually cook decent meals with food purchased from stores by the money I earn by working, just like any of you. The only difference between me and you is I spend my nights in the parking lot at Wal Mart, K-Mart, casinos and truck stops and my costs of living are tremendously lower than yours! I don’t pay rent to a landlord or pay a mortgage. I lost ZERO in the housing bubble collapse. I can get by on $50 a week if I need to, but I don’t need to because I earn a full time decent living. I am far from a slacker, making money online as well.
This ordinance is about taking freedoms from people, pure and simple. It’s not about crime at all.
Well since you put it like that then ok glad it works out for you. It wouldn't for me even if I didn't have kids. I like my house and my own space etc. What bugs me since your not the typical (homeless) is the ones that make the public park like a house for them defacating on the play areas grown men walking around nude or damn near it. Taking up the spaces at the bbq area all places I pay taxes for and can't use because they are disgusting. I should be able to leave our house and be able to be in peace esp in public places paid for by taxes.
November 21, 2012 at 12:57pm
Are you Londoner’s still happy about all those security cameras aimed at you everywhere you go? Huge invasion of your (what little you have left) privacy but they really cut down on the crime, don’t they? And think of all the great footage for YouTube. Crimes still happen and although captured on digital, they are not dealt with,. as there are seldom any police around to capture the bad guys! So those cameras are doing you a real world of good, aren’t they? Fools…
About your username: Wow. Points for honesty, man. At least your not one of these Cons who tries to pretends that they're not racist.
November 20, 2012 at 10:15am
And people wonder why they have to press 1 for English…this is how it starts, people! Little by little, as you continue to allow immigrants to speak their own language in public in your country, before you know it you will be paying for interpreters for court cases involving people who don’t speak English, your department of motor vehicles will have to print everything in ten different languages, your hospitals, fire and police will be required to send their public servants to language classes, paid for by the taxpayers, just so they can understand people they must take care of – because those people are too fricken lazy to bother learning English, although they’ve lived here for twenty years! That’s a good description of the United States – and what your future holds if you don’t start speaking up. Should they have yelled at her for singing a song in French? No, but when it gets so bad that you must learn how to speak French, Spanish, Chinese, or Arabic just to deal with people in your own country, perhaps you will wish you had said something at the time. If you want to live in an English-speaking country, LEARN ENGLISH or live somewhere else. The taxpayers should not have to pay just so you can remain ignorant by choice.
Ok, dissenters, your turn to jump all over me…as if that will change my mind…
You called it my friend, and I say that as a foreigner.
In the 40 years I've been in America it's been sad to see this once great country selling out to every one else, places like Deerborne, Miami - English not welcome -
We came to America to get away from the crime of cities like Sao Paulo, now the crime is moving here also, even your own free blacks are rising up just like they did in Brasil and just like in the movie Planet of the Apes they are taking over, and again we will have to live in fear and put up steel bars on the windows to keep out the "beauty of diversity"
Over a dozen languages were spoken in the colonies in 1776... not counting the 500 or so Native American languages, and many of the Founding Fathers were multi-lingual.
True but the colonies didn't have a dozen different loyalty, they helped each other, go to Miami Cubans vote for Cubans, go to Deerborne Arab's vote for Arab's, go to Chicago, DC . . . blacks vote for blacks, L.A. - Hispanic's for Hispanic, and so on.
Over the years I've heard many Hispanic's talk about how slowly they are taking back California and Florida.
The immigrant of the past worked to be part of America, the immigrant of today works to tear America apart.
i'll happily concede that point. i'm a 1st generation American (Scottish parents) and i've worked in construction for over 20years. I have seen the evolution of attitudes among migrant labor 1st hand...
I'm Portuguese, I was born in Brasil. Since the 1970's I have been to Europe many times, I can tell you first hand just how sad many cities have become, crime, drugs, riots . . it's all over Europe and getting worse, as the number of the non-european grow, just like the free slaves in America they start to vote for their own.
The BBC said it best when McCain lost 4 years ago they said "the day of a all white male ticket is over", but this is what we, as a race, get for losing WW2. Basically we as a race in the American Civil War, WW1 and WW2 killed each other and handed the world over to blacks, Hispanic's, Arab's . . .
We as a race are doomed.
Couldn't agree more BRASIL...
I lived in the UK for a while when i was a late teen and spent some time playing futbol;) in Denmark, Holland, and Norway as well.... These countries were miles ahead of the US when it came to self destruction even then (early 90's).. though Denmark was quite civil..
The State is on track to dominate and unfortunately, as a result, i am in the process of dissolving my remodeling business and seeking government employment as we speak.... seeing the "writing on the wall" as the saying goes...
I see the elections becoming more and more pointless, like a one-party rule for the next generation. as whites are socially engineered out of existence, when we are "minority-majority" or whatever the hell Acorn calls their dreamland, whites will band together like the rest of the races band together because they see the writing on the wall.
Once we get below 50%, I think we will see some real changes - the opposition party (what's left of the Republicans) will be almost entirely white, while Democrat party will be 90% minority.
There will be dramatic top-down affirmative action because so many positions of power will still be filled by hardworking whites. There will be UN conferences in every major city on how to deconstruct "apartheid America." Small-businesses will be redistributed to minorities, who will promptly run them into the ground on day 1.
This is when those hardcore leftist whites will abandon their union posts because there will be cheaper and cheaper labor for any and all jobs, plus political correctness, affirmative action and other cultural marxist legislation will make it nearly impossible for "yesterday's race" to find even the crappiest jobs. Only around 10% of whites will forever be communists because it is their quest to be different, like voting for Obama just because he is black.
The future is aready here, we are less then 8% of world population, look at whites in South Africa since the fall of South Africa in the 1990's, the white vote is now pointless, white America is on the cliff alright.
Look at what they did to us after they took control in Zimbabwe, Rhodesia . . . the white farmer was doomed, my friend after they took control we didn't get any extra rights, just like one day in America they will just keep taking till we have nothing, welcome to the new black world order.
Like I wrote this is what we as a race get for losing WW2
You wanna see why our own people don't wanna be saved? because they want to be "saved." Im talking about these israel first beckbots. They used to be the backbone of stability, but were successfully co-opted by their very enemies, and are now used as cannon fodder. Gotta laugh at how shrewd the enemy race really is. This rotted Christian veil MUST be shed.
I saw your video, in the past when I have looked at intellectual people like Dr. David Duke Ph.D, that talk about how Jews are not Zionist and so on, all that is too complex for most people.
Take a look at that video of Rockwell his speech he kept it simple, "vote white" simple and to the point, thats what blacks do they keep it simple go door to door and tell blacks to vote black.
Mean while us whites are talking the "issue" and what person will be better for the job.
Thats how we lost the WH twice we talk about the issue, and they just vote black.
George Lincoln Rockwell - RIP

Obama is absolutely disgusting. He is NOT the president, he did NOT win any election (it was a theft, not an election) and Obama needs to RESIGN IMMEDIATELY! He should be arrested for the crimes he has committed!
