Don’t get me wrong. I love the fact that this kid kept the attacker at bay long enough to escape. Am I the only dad who has ever taught their daughter that if some guy tries to grab them, you throw an elbow at them hard then hit him in the nuts as hard as you can and run? When I read the part about Israeli martial arts, I was kind of expecting something a bit more exotic and…I don’t know…Spectacular? Kudos to the kid for taking care of herself and not waiting for some “official” to help.

I used the chemical spray technique once when I was a kid. Somebody tried to break into my house through an open window. I sprayed a disinfectant in his eyes and he fell back out to the ground and took off. I’d recommend wasp spray over ant spray, though. The wasp spray gives you more stand off distance and lessens the chance of blow back. Though I haven’t tried it, I bet if you touched off the stream with a lighter, it would make a pretty good flame thrower. Don’t try this at home, kids.

The stalker was hung in the chimney all bare, in hopes that a firefighter soon would be there.

Its obvious to me that the girls rant was staged by the “artist” filming street preachers. Note how she glances directly at the camera during her performance. Enough said.

Though I hate her politically, I can’t laugh at this or find any joy in it. It’s just not right to throw anything at an old woman.
Woman, yes, technically, yes.
Please refer to answer number two.
It said the thrower was middle-aged. Close enough for a fair fight. I bet Hitlery wasn't worried about the ages of the bodies in her and Billy's wake.

They already changed Easter vacation to spring break. Now in most districts, it is nowhere near holy week or Easter. Let them change this now and you will soon see “winter break” begin on New year’s day or sometime in February to save on heating costs in the coldest month. Give them an inch and they will take a mile.

Let me get this straight. She had a restraining order out on him, then went to HIS house without police. She would have been advised to do so under such a no contact order. She did not think he was home. Who opened the door? Did she unlawfully enter HIS house? If he answered the door, she should have left right then. Too many questions I need answered, but on it’s face this does not sound like a justified use of a weapon. All things considered, I believe 20 years is too much unless the charge was attempted murder and was proven in court.
Charles6 over on another thread said "The World is laughing at us." I see why. If this is a "clash" with Police then the Lingerie Bowl is "slobberknocking" old school full contact hard nosed NFL gridiron action--with stretcher bounties.
Geesh, we did better than this at VPI when the Pot Heads were pissed that a Narcs on Campus rumor had caused them all to flush their dope prematurely.

Clearly, a reader of at least one of Glenn Beck’s books.
This recognition is LONG over due!
To call Rush 'Rock and Rollers' is like calling the great Tenor Pavoriti a pop singer.
Congats Guys!!! You've earned it!
My all time favorite Rush song. 'New World Man' or as I like to call it 'The Obama theme song'
This was recorded in 1983. Enjoy!!!
He's a rebel and a runner
He's a signal turning green
He's a restless young romantic
Wants to run the big machine
He's got a problem with his poisons
But you know he'll find a cure
He's cleaning up his systems
To keep his nature pure
Learning to match the beat of the Old World man
Learning to catch the heat of the Third World man
He's got to make his own mistakes
And learn to mend the mess he makes
He's old enough to know what's right
But young enough not to choose it
He's noble enough to win the world
But weak enough to lose it --
He's a New World man...
He's a radio receiver
Turned to factories and farms
He's a writer and arranger
And a young boy bearing arms
He's got a problem with his power
With weapons on patrol
He's got to walk a fine line
And keep his self-control
Trying to save the day for the Old World man
Trying to pave the way for the Third World man
He's not concerned with yesterday
He knows constant change is here today
He's noble enough to know what's right
But weak enough not to choose it
He's wise enough to win the world
But fool enough to lose it --
He's a New World man...

She choked. Looks like she was nervous and doubted herself. She screwed up a word and went totally blank. Too bad the stands did not pick up the song sooner. Our national anthem should not be a solo act, anyway. One should lead the song, but the lone voice should be joined by all with nearly equal volume.
Why would an arena full of Canadians join in to sing the American national anthem?
If an American singer bungled the Canadian national anthem in an American rink would the crowd be able to help that singer get through it? Doubtful.
The world may laugh but without America who will take the stand for freedom? Canada , France, England, Germany or how about Russia and China. The world is screwed.
I've only ever spent a day in Canada but was taught the Canadian nat'l anthem in elementary school. I still remember most of the words.
@RickC34 - actually, Canada and Great Britain are usually there, often before the US. Lately France has been active too. Of course, they generally are under the UN flag.

The police admit to a lack of evidence to pin the shooting on ANYONE at this point. They likely will not know any more unless they arrest a guy carrying a gun that can be tied to the crime using ballistic forensics, or if someone comes forward who has knowledge of the shooting. It seems to me that when asked if there is evidence to link it to a cartel, the obvious answer is NO. Nobody said it was definitely not a cartel. Given what is known, it is equally possible to be some random 99 percentard shooting into the “all-suites corporate hotel”. The possibilities are too numerous to tie it to any one group or individual without evidence.

You misunderstand the answer. The question asked was IF THERE WAS ANY EVIDENCE to suggest involvement of Mexican drug cartels. The police did not rule out the possibility of a cartel being involved with their answer. They only stated that there was no EVIDENCE found to make that connection. It is BECAUSE they don’t know who did it, that they cannot link it to a cartel this early in the investigation. Let’s be fair and not stuff words into peoples mouths here.

The question was very specific. Did they find evidence of….. The answer was NO. If the question had been, “Is there a possibility of drug cartel involvement?”, perhaps the answer would have been different.

When you shoot an intruder in your home or an assailant aggressing elsewhere, it is self defense. If the same guy is running away life a scared little dog (retreating), by all means keep him in your sight picture but DO NOT FIRE. That is not self defense, but shooting a guy because you’re pissed. Get the plate and call 911. I hope the law goes easy on him, but he made a poor choice. Even in the wild west, it was bad form to shoot a guy in the back.
