A laser pointer may be annoying but it poses no danger to a helicopter.
Any car driver can tell you that driving past a police car with it’s blue lights flashing is much more blinding than some toy pointed from 1,000 feet away.
If a high power laser pointer hits the eyes of a pilot, especially during the nighttime when their pupils are larger, it can blind them for a decent period of time and pose an immense risk to their and the publics safety

What I find interesting is how the bank knows so much about the lives of their customers.
It seems somebody was doing a little data mining on somebody’s account.
I was thinking the same. How do they know soo much! But hey, they don't mind, look what they got, free $$$.. How much ya wana bet they probably know who they voted for! So I wonder if they were all Dems!
I found that the Banks in Canada ,at least what I experienced when living in Vancouver, really did want to build a relationship with its customers and tellers really did care. Most people would use one branch and would go in to talk to the tellers and did not use the ATM's much.
Data mining. No. There was a time when the bank officer on the platform knew your name and knew you. What a concept. Now we have to talk to someone in india that you can hardly understand.
I use to work for a "Temple to Money" [be very, very quiet, money has sensitive hearing ;-)] and let me tell you banking is all about relationship building. You store a lot of information in your mind about people and customers alike. I felt honored that someone would come to me and discuss their issues, even their lives, and I always had hopes that I could assist them in some manner, shape or form; if not for the bank but for them. What was told to me openly or in private stayed stuck between my ears.... mouth nor tongue divulged anything after hours. If you hadn't learnt the art of privacy or trust you did so; fast. If you were a non-conversationalist you either learned or had the gift of gab and not in a sloppy way either. The art of listening is honed in these types of jobs and a myriad of personal/professional opportunities open up to you and the customer.
So in a nutshell, yes, data mining did occur but was kept private & confidential within the confines of my mind was not uploaded to the banks' servers.
Tellers and floor staff often confide with each other so its not inconceivable that these issues thence rewards brought up in the video would not be known or engage in gifting this unique way.
People person or not, in a bank, you hear a lot of things, good and bad. Bank policies & procedures hold you back from assisting customers at times but sometimes just being a sounding board or listening w/o interjecting.... is one small way to help others in need.

He got me.

If they are going to just stand by and allow the guy to make fools of them then why should I care….?

Am I the only one who noticed the rescuer drag the kid’s head across the sharp jagged concrete and cut the side of his head open…?
 July 12, 2014 at 1:24pm
Absolutely. They used it as a training exercise.No different than having a SWAT team arrest somebody for marijuana possession after they shoot their dog.

Is it just me because I only saw a little puddle that didn’t even top the officer’s shoes.
Where was the water up to his knees…?

You gotta’ love the girl who filmed it all and was having a good laugh over it. To her it all just entertainment to watch and elderly couple be harassed by some messed up junkie.

If the Christmas holiday is not the reason for the vacation then make them all work that week.
That is an interesting point why if it isn't for Christmas than why still have it at that time of year. Just start it the week after so the kids are out of school on New Years. We don't want the teachers in on the 2nd anyway considering how many will be very hung over.

So the judge is punishing the family for refusing to take this injustice lying down and now would even try to have them labeled as mentally incompetent…?
There is no justice in this country with people like that on the bench.

3rd world peasants and savages.
No wonder their country is a crap hole.

What an ungrateful little jerk.
Chuck Lorre made that kid a multi-millionaire who is financially set for life.
You will note he has not given back all the filthy money he earned.
And he never would because he knows just how much easier his life will be because of all of his sitcom wealth.
It’s real easy to take a stand when it costs you nothing.
He found religion...just like the porno stars AFTER THEY MADE THE MONEY!

I would like to stand on the end please.

There was no mention of the dog’s location or any mention of it by his owners.
I think the dog may have been barking more out of fear than a desire to save lives.
He was scared.
He was barking for help most likely.
The fact that they could not run down the stairs suggests that perhaps the dog was trapped downstairs and maybe that was why they did not rescue him.
A fire can be quite chaotic so I cannot fault the people for not saving the dog.

While I am glad they made it out and sad the dog died I see nothing in this story to support the premise of this article.
The only mention of the dog was that it was barking.
There is no other mention or statement from the owners.
How do we know the dog was not barking for rescue or barking heroically to save people…?
They did after all leave the dog behind.
the dog was barking because dogs bark at stuff they don't like or understand.
dogs don't like change and a roaring fire is a pretty big change.
doesn't diminish the fact that it's barking saved human lives, however.
as far as leaving the dog behind... ever try to coerce a scared dog to jump out a 2nd story window?
CAN YOU CARRY A DOG OUT A TWO STORY WINDOW IN A PANIC? I GUESS THEY ARE SECOND RATE.
