    When a cop is sagging his pants and his duty belt, I would suspect things are about to take a turn for the worse.

    A nuke over Cleveland (or Detroit) would be a GOOD THING!

    Very, very cool.

    On a side note: maybe that soundtrack would help me with Flight Sim X… at least it would be a calming sound while I was crashing!

    Wait… you can buy that mask!?

    “I was holding out for an inscription to be found there, in ancient Hebrew…”

    Shhhhh! You’ll wake Nilsson!

    Pro Tip: Pound two nails through the striking end of the bat. 3″ sinker nails, spaced an inch or so apart.

    Demonic spirit? Naw. Pure, unadulterated stupidity with a side of hubris? Absolutely.

    Excellent on the parts of both students.

    This isn’t political. It’s an amazing display of sportsmanship.

    @East:

    Not to be a total jerk about this but I fail to see how the city owes him ANYTHING.

    Based on the information I’ve seen on this, including the links, this guy either lied when he joined the police or he lied by omission once he was a cop and developed a disorder that prevented him from safely discharging his duties.

    If the latter is the case then he should have asked for “reasonable accommodation” to a desk job where his problems wouldn’t have caused trouble.

    His failure to inform his superiors and ask for such an accommodation, is in my book, an offence for which he deserved termination.

  • [1] October 17, 2014 at 9:40pm

    That doesn’t explain why he didn’t explain the situation to his superiors and ask for reassignment for a job he was physically qualified for.

    Instead of doing what he should have done, he lied by omission until he got caught and fired and then sued.

    He’s unfit for patrol duty. Period. He either lied when he was joining the police force or he lied by omission when he failed to tell his superiors that he had developed a condition that made him unfit for patrol duty.

  • [2] October 17, 2014 at 9:37pm

    Agreed.

    My problem with this is that he’s clearly unfit for duty.

    If this guy knew he had this problem before he joined he should have been DQ’d. If he didn’t, he should have brought it to his superior’s attention when he discovered it and been reassigned or left the police force with a disability.

    Either way, he shouldn’t have been in the position he was and the only reason he was in that position was because he was lying about his health.

    First, he supposedly has sleep apnea, not narcolepsy.

    Second, if he legitimately has problems like this how the heck did he get on the police force in the first place?

    I’d probably have shot him center mass at least twice, but that’s just my preference.

    I’m not going to armchair quarterback the guy. He stopped the threat in one shot, no harm came to himself or his lady and the perp is in custody.

  • [1] October 16, 2014 at 9:39pm

    Would you if you ran a company that thought they had this figured out?

    Nope. Get it figured and file for a patent, until you have the patent you keep your mouth shut.

  • [4] October 16, 2014 at 9:36pm

    Apparently not.

    I totally understand why a lot of people lie about previous drug experimentation to a recruiter and at MEPS, especially these days when there are no waivers. However, the whole point here is to turn over a new leaf, which apparently Biden Jr. did not.

    I’ve never understood why the military (or at least the Corps) cares if you smoked marijuana five times, but they do. Four is the most they’ll accept without the sign off of a Navy headshrink and you won’t get that, nor will you get a waiver for prior drug use these days unless you’re someone important.

    I told my recruiter that I had experimented with pot in college when I was enlisting. He asked how many times. I said “Honestly? I have no idea, I was drunk for half of college.” He said, “Put 0 times, but if you’re one of those super honest types, put four times unless you tried it less than that”. When I asked why, he explained that five times requires a psyche evaluation that is nearly never passed and that even if I did pass that eval my tattoo waivers were a stretch, adding drugs and I would be DQ’d for sure. Then he joked that drugs plus an enlistment after college when I was recommended for OCS and HE knew I was crazy, the head doc would figure me out in a second.

    I followed that advice.

    This just makes me want to go diving, but that requires a recert in CPR otherwise my DiveMaster and Rescue Diver cards are worthless… I knew I should have kept that darn Open Water Diver Card!

    (And for insurance purposes as well, not just convenience.)

    Theoretically yes, it is much cleaner in terms of “waste”.

    Of course 95% of what we call “waste” in the U.S. can be easily reprocessed and reused, but the greenies won’t allow it.

    If they’ve found a way to fully control a fusion reaction, that’s amazing.

    It will also make them a freaking mint.
