    “he had fired the officer involved, even though he “may have been justified under the Illinois Use of Force statute governing deadly force.”

    This little nugget just means the taxpayers of Hometown, Illinois will now be on the hook for paying this officer a large wrongful termination settlement. The Chief of Police just acknowledged to the world that he is aware that the officer was justified under the law and fired him anyway. Civil employment laws are not swayed by emotional pet stories, just was he fired for legal cause or not. This won’t even make it to court. Just a negotiation about how many zeros on the check.

    It’s terrible when people get their pets murdered by cops, but its worse when dumb administrators throw away hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars away with dumb, legally admissible, statements to the public. The officer should have to buy them a new dog and the Chief should have to pay the lawsuit.

    ‘UFC Star” Really? He has fought in two preliminary undercard fights in non-pay-per-view free-tv fight cards. He won one by decision and got knocked out in the other. I’m not disparaging his accomplishment to fight in the UFC, but “Star” connotes something different than this. Maybe “New UFC Fighter” would be better.

    Deep breath. Everything is going to be ok.

    This whole story has to be a lie from Fox News. The mainstream media tells me that guns never save anybody and they are always taken away from the owner and used against them. So, this has to be a lie.

    I don’t blame the little girl. I blame the father. It looks as if he had access to someone else’s study and had his daughter replicate, in scaled down form, the same basic study with the same conclusion. I’m sure the father thought this would be a private school science fair and the findings would never be seen on a national scale. He never anticipated having to defend his involvement in this and now he may be doing some CYA. Since it’s the father’s integrity that is really in question, you’ll have to excuse me if I don’t except any of the father’s claims without verification.

    I put a drum magazine on a semi-automatic shotgun, with a pistol grip both on the stock and fore grip, single-point sling and a flash suppressor and now I can evaporate entire cities with one trigger pull. Well, at least according to progressive gun grabbers.

    That just means that all of the high paid executives don’t want to uproot themselves and have to go through the hassle of selling and buying a new house, making new friends, leaving behind family and all of the rest of the life changing hassles their other workers will have to endure if they want to keep their jobs. It will not be shared sacrifice and the better tax situation means more profit for them.

    I give the artist credit for the detail put into these pictures, but it’s not that impressive when you see how it’s done. The artist uses a digital picture and prints it on a clear plastic sheet. They then use an overhead projector to project the image on the canvas and then do a light tracing of the whole picture. They then freehand the fine detail. It still takes quite a bit of talent, but it’s not pure talent.

    I started off in the Army as an enlisted soldier (E-4) because of my education. To become an NCO you first go to PLDC school to become an E-5 sergeant. Then you go to BNCOC school to get your E-6 staff sergeant stripes. After I earned my masters degree I entered OCS (officers candidate school). I know a little something about both the enlisted and officer ranks. I say all that to say this: NCO’s never refer to themselves as officers. It took me a good amount of time to do all that and I was fast tracked because of my education. There is no way someone would take all of the time and go through the 5 leaderships schools and all of the process to become a sergeant major (a very highly respected rank) and then go to OCS school. At best he would fast track to captain, but being a captain does not hold the same respect as being sergeant major. This impostor is an idiot. If you were an officer, you wouldn’t dust off your enlisted uniform and go out in public.

    That’s something that I don’t understand. I would have grabbed the signs and kept them in place or would have retrieved them from the basement and put them back. I would have all of my friends film the incident because the second one of those thieves put their hands on me, an ambulance would need to be en-route and I would need the video to win my trial because the cops would suddenly start making arrests.

    I have no idea why people get so worked up about gay people having some government issued piece of paper that says they are married. It has absolutely zero affect on my life. I spend most of my life never seeing even one gay person and I couldn’t careless what they do. It seems so strange to me to read all of these comments of people so angry about people that they don’t even know. All of your anger would seem to be better placed on matters that, you know, matter.

    I know a lot of law enforcement officers from all kinds of different organizations. Federal, sheriff deputies from different counties, highway patrol, and many different municipalities and they are just regular people that have a dangerous jobs. Your paranoia and broad-brush stereotyping says more about you than it does about individual police officers.

    It’s like saying, “All people that have negative views of the police are paranoid schizophrenics with tin foil hats, more ammo than brains, dangerous people, that are just one pill away from a school shooting.”

    Antisemitism is a great jackhole detector. As soon as some anti-Jewish words start flowing out of someone’s mouth you know not to waste any time or effort on that person. That kind of hate is deep seeded and they can’t see their own bigotry.

    I will support her Constitution amendment if it also contains a 6 year lifelong term limit for anyone elected to Congress and she includes her resignation.

    What’s worse, 12 minutes of actual action that ends with 5 touchdowns, 5 extra points and 3 field goals ending 21-23 or non-stop 90+ minutes of action ending 0-0? That’s a rhetorical question, Americans know the right answer.

    It’s that “Baghdad Bob” mental derangement. Bombs going off all over in the background like a 4th of July firework grand finale, shocking displays of shock-and-awe and Bob, “Nothing to see here. Bombs? What bombs?”

    “I was always taught that if you pull the weapon be ready to use it. NEVER just point one in fun”

    I smell what your cooking, but your life lesson does not apply here. You see, he did not point a weapon. He pointed a benign toy no more dangerous than a Barbie doll. A painted piece of plastic incapable of inflicting any harm to said driver and equipped with a bright orange safety tip to easily show that it is a toy. The driver that caused the traffic collision was somehow able to stop looking forward to drive safely and looked into the rear view seat of a contiguous vehicle and observe a child with something in his hand that looked like a gun. So extraordinarily observant, but missed the most important part of the entire scenario. The bright orange tip, which the driver would have seen first if it was being pointed at them as described. The good thing about the law is that it is based on reasonableness and not opinion. I sir would be relentless on the idea of reasonableness. I would pass around that toy to the entire jury and simply ask, “would you have been so unreasonable to have caused all of this carnage because some 4th grader pointed an orange plastic toy? I would collect my fee and move on with another win under my belt.

    The only time soccer is not boring is when you are watching post-game 2 minute highlights of the entire game. If the game ended in penalty kicks, then it is at least 2 degrees above boring. Soccer would be so much better if it were played for only 20 minutes and if tied they go straight to the penalty kicks. You would be able to play the entire World Cup in five days.

    What is the crime exactly? Pointing a harmless toy? Even for disorderly conduct there has to be intent. Since the plastic toy probably had the orange tip, all of the safety mechanisms were in place. When someone does something that isn’t exclusively illegal, and the person is being charged with a “unintentional” act, the prosecutor has to prove that it is reasonable to believe that an 11 year old could have or should have known that their actions could have caused this incident. Good luck on that.

    The police overcharge crimes all of the time. A good prosecutor follows the law and does not file charges on those overcharges.

    What she should do is pose nude with her next hunting kill and then go collect the $100,000 herself. She could then use that money to go on several hundred more hunts.
