    That would cause the hammer to be locked back. So my previous comment about the pistol being cocked with the safety off is not really pertinent.

    8YRSOFHELL, Colt Mustangs are single action.

    .380 Colt Mustang – cocked with the safety off.

    He was ready to shoot someone or something.

    I’m going with an SKS with a sling, but the police may not release that information for a long time.

    More like a body check.

    I almost feel bad for the CNN reporters getting gassed and I watched one get knocked on his butt by a protester about a half hour ago.

    I was tear gassed in the Air Force and pepper sprayed when I was a deputy sheriff. The pepper spray was a lot worse. But here’s my advice for reporters who go into the danger zone for a paycheck: Get a little squirt bottle and put some baby shampoo in it and fill it the rest of the way with water.

    Nobody wants to get soap in his eyes, but baby shampoo doesn’t hurt and it will wash away the irritants. I don’t know why more people don’t know this. It works.

    BTW, pepper spray will dry and crystalize. When you get into the shower it will reactivate run downhill towards your privates. Get it off as soon as possible.

    Thanks. She’s on Facebook asking for prayers for her son.

    I grew up in Gastonia, which is about 20 miles east of Charlotte. I have to say the people there were the trashiest, most violent, racist group of people I’ve had the misfortune of being associated with. Black and White. I moved there from Indiana in 1972 when I was 10 yrs. old and didn’t even know what racism was. The racism from Blacks was outward and in your face, while the racism from Whites was whispered and talked about in private.

    This will be worse than Ferguson.

    It’s 20:30 Central time where I am and I’m watching this BS live. I have a friend whose son is a fireman in Charlotte and he is first responder and has been called in. She’s really scared right now.

    This is a riot, not a protest.

    I hate myself for agreeing with Warren.

    I’m going to take a shower now.

    (Sometime in the near future)

    Wolf Blitzer on CNN: “The Supreme Court with its new composition of liberal justices appointed by Hillary Clinton has ruled that police officers must first deploy a public defender before arresting a black male. At least one public defender will be in attendance with police officers at all times and if one is not present a police officer may not question, detain or arrest a black male. No evidence may be collected and no guilt may be inferred by statements from the accused unless first approved by the suspect’s lawyer. “

    dano1, you’re obviously trolling here, but I’ll bite.

    When an aircraft lands it is refueled, oil, liquid oxygen, and hydraulic levels are checked and a postflight inspection is done. The pilot will report any defects found in flight, and any issues found by the crew chief are listed and graded according to severity. If an issue is found that is severe enough the aircraft is grounded and cannot fly until that is corrected. Once it is corrected a qualified NCO will inspect the repair and sign off on it.

    Notice I said “postflight” and “any defects found in flight.” Planes don’t usually break sitting on the flight line. They break when they are being used. In the sky. Flying.

    The crew chief is not to blame if/when a perfectly good part stops performing at 10,000 ft. Parts break and wear out, especially when under the stress that military jets incur.

    As far as it being the pilot’s fault, most accidents are caused by failures of the flight crew, not maintenance. In this case I have no idea what happened.

    A deacon at my church said he helped design Hickory Hollow Mall. He said it’s called “hollow” because they had to fill in 80 feet of dirt to bring the area to level.

    It started going bad about 10 years ago. I would only go there once a year to do Christmas shopping. Someone told me not to go there anymore, it wasn’t what it used to be, but I went anyway.

    It was full of gang members and thugs walking the hallways and giving people dirty looks, like shoppers were invading their territory. The shootings inside and outside the mall finally drove away the last of the real shoppers and it had to close for lack of business.

    I’m forbidden from carrying a handgun at work even though I work for a business that has a reputation be being robbed. But I have a Glock 23c that stays in my car with me. I’m pretty sure I’d get fired if it was known I had it in my car, but the only way anyone will know I have it is if my life is in danger. At that point the question is, “which is more important, my job or my life?” Well, I can always get another job, but second lives only happen in the movies.

    I sat in a parking lot in a semi-abandoned mall (the old Hickory Hollow mall in Antioch, TN if you’re familiar with the area) this morning while waiting on parts to be delivered for a nearby business. Across from me, about 100 yards away was a black guy in a mini van screaming for about 15 minutes at the top of his lungs. He had on white headphones so he may have been yelling out lyrics to the music he was listening to. But it was N***** this, F*** that, something about gangs, and that he was “dangerous.” It kept on and on. If I had to say one thing positive about him it was that he had an impressive set of lungs.

    He wasn’t hurting anybody and I was the only person around to hear him. I left when I saw the Fed Ex truck I was waiting for pull into the business across the street.

    But I thought, “This has become normal behavior.” Not long ago the police would have told the guy to move on or they would have arrested him for disturbing the peace, or even taken him to a hospital for mental evaluation. But Blacks screaming in public and threatening violence has become acceptable. Nothing to see. Just move along, and if you complain you’re a racist and part of the problem.

    This world is messed up.

    When I was stationed in Germany in the early 1980′s we had a U-2 land at Ramstein because of bad weather where it was supposed to go.

    “OK, I guess that’s cool.” No, it was really cool. It was night, and there was a thunder-snow storm happening at the time. Lightning during a snow storm at night is one of the coolest natural events you can experience. When the U-2 dropped out of the clouds it just made it better.

    Transit Alert parked it in the hangar I worked in. The SP’s wouldn’t let me go in and take a look at it despite my story that I had left my gloves in there and needed to look for them. Turds.

    When it took off the next morning, it was ridiculously loud despite having a non-afterburning engine. And once it took off it just floated up and away like God himself was pulling it up with a string.

    Monk, I take that as a personal, though unintended insult.

    You’re insinuating that the crew chief of that jet pencil whipped the preflight inspection and said it was ready to fly when it wasn’t because of money issues.

    I was a crew chief in the Air Force on A-7s, A-10s and F-4s. I was responsible for all maintenance and repairs on my jet and I would never sign off on a jet that wasn’t 100% ready to fly. If it needed parts it stayed on the ground. That’s what hangars are for.

    People were making the same comment in June when the Blue Angel crashed. “Obama made it crash because he cut the budget.” No, it was pilot error. In fact it was so obvious it was his fault it was painful to watch and no one wanted to mention it.

    Things happen. Jets are complicated machines with lots of moving parts. Military jets tend to push the envelope and purposely go where the danger is, whether that means combat or simply flying an aircraft that is extremely difficult to fly. The U-2 is not an easy plane to learn to fly, especially in a space suit. This is probably going to come back as engine failure, but it was a training mission and there’s always a possibility someone pushed the wrong button.

    Avenger, Flight 93 flew into the ground practically straight down at high speed. The U-2 fell out of the sky and hit the ground at a much lower speed.

  • [15] September 20, 2016 at 9:34pm

    It crashed just after takeoff. From Beale AFB. Which happens to be Northern California.

    Oh wait, you’re making fun of a crash of an Air Force jet which resulted in the death an Air Force pilot by suggesting they were spying on Americans. My bad.
