    Except that’s not what happened. They didn’t have to contact Facebook or his ISP. They have a group of followers called #SocialMediaSlueths who started posting information about his family and his Facebook page. Then apparently someone called in some tips, and the police nabbed him.

    On July 23, 2014, the Anne Arundel County Police Department profiled Roger Ray Ireland during its “#WantedWednesday” feature. Social Media Sleuths (#SocialMediaSlueths) as the police department calls their online social media family, immediately begin sharing Ireland’s picture. Roger Ireland himself then commented on the Facebook thread saying “Y’all will never catch me…” referencing his attempts to continue to elude the police.

    On July 24, 2014, detectives from the Intelligence Unit followed up on some tips received as to the whereabouts of Ireland.

    Detectives were able to locate Ireland in South Baltimore near the Anne Arundel County line at approximately 1:00 p.m. They executed a traffic stop on the vehicle that he was in and he was taken into custody without incident. Ireland was taken to the Northern District and served with an outstanding warrant for violation of probation.

    Tainted, that is a link to the “Lifehacks” YouTube channel, which is all about dating and not about freedom. I was looking forward to another saveuschuckwoolery experience.

    I wish no one knew what Michael Moore looked like. It seems to me that we should be opposing his liberal views, but his body mass index shouldn’t be part of the discussion. By calling him fat, we are resorting to the tactics of the left. By discussing numbers and facts, we are discussing things from a conservative point of view. Let’s not allow the “progressives” to keep dragging us down into the gutter to mud wrestle with them on their level. We’re better than that.

    No. This is a “man bites dog” story. These stories are always big news, precisely because they happen so rarely. Unfortunately it is not rare to see the cop-haters come out from under their rocks to bash the police. They don’t get much chance to do that during normal news days. I suspect that many or most of these cop-haters have spent some time involuntarily inspecting the inside of a jail cell. Yes, these officers did bad things. No, most officers are not dishonest and corrupt.

    I saw him on Jay Leno’s show one evening talking about his sleep apnea. He said that he had gone through a sleep study, and the results were that he was waking up 45 times per minute. Of course that is ridiculous, and he meant 45 times per hour. I believe that Tom is so eager to speak that he doesn’t think about what he’s saying. If he sat down and thought about it for a minute, he would probably realize that the hunter he saw didn’t have “hot firepower” after all. Although, on the same show he was talking about waking up with the sleep apnea breathing mask on his face, and when trying to take it off rapidly, he broke his nose. So maybe he really is an idiot.

    They weren’t “marauding” or “brandishing.” They were exercising their Second Amendment rights, just as their detractors exercised their First Amendment rights to criticize them. These guys should walk around armed every day, until the hand-wringers stop being disturbed and upset and accept that open carry is a Constitutional right.

    I’m submitting your name to the Guardians of the Universe for further processing. In the meantime, enjoy your Marvel comics, such as the Rawhide Kid in “Slap Leather.”

    Dorkville, thanks for posting. You’re showing us the problem with stories like these. There are no references given, just assertions. “After a school massacre, the U.K. banned handguns in 1998. A decade later, handgun crime has doubled.” Has it really? It doubled exactly? In precisely ten years? All an opponent needs to do is wander by and say “No it hasn’t” and we’re back to square one because we can’t cite any numbers.

    You’re right that it’s really not useful to compare crime and gun ownership in the US and Australia, or any two countries. Different countries have many other factors that figure into the equation. If someone from the UK says “You have too much gun crime in the US,” we can turn around and say “You should figure out how to stop all those home invasions.” We’re trying to compare things that have so many variables that there’s no way to make sense of the comparison.

    As I understand it, deinstitutionalization is part of the legacy of President Kennedy. It would be instructive to look at the number of deaths that can be attributed to homicidal maniacs who would have been safely locked away if not for JFK’s initiative. After the Tucson shooting, I talked to a psychiatrist who said that Jared Loughner’s actions should have put him behind bars long before the shooting. He said that there had to be multiple failures to report his actions to the proper authorities for him to be walking around free in that mental state.

    Liza Long should be able to tell the police “My son is out of control and I am afraid for my life and the lives of my other children because of him,” and the kid should be instantly whisked away to a supervised and secure mental health facility for evaluation. And if he’s found to be too mentally ill and too violent, he should never be released into polite society where he can hurt people.

    Officers say someone threw something out of a car window at the offices, causing a fire to start.

    The suspect is described as a Hispanic man driving a black Hyundai.

    Agreed here too. I used to listen to her on one of the Phoenix radio stations, but only for a few minutes at a time. So much of her show was filled with fluff and nonsense. She used to have a segment called the “but monkey of the day.” It was someone she didn’t like who used “but” in a sentence, and she had the sound of a monkey screaming at least twice during the clip. And she would always take the time to make fun of an enemy’s name or hair or clothing, something that no one but her could care about. I don’t understand why she has been on the air for as long as she has, with all the extraneous stuff in the show.

    This is just one of many sick and twisted fetishes that used to be underground and unknown. With today’s “anything goes” morality, things like this are becoming more “mainstream.” Look up “Vorarephilia” to learn more. Ick.

    Dear Senator Reid:

    If you will confine your attentions to your own state, which is Nevada, we will take care of our state.

    Thank you very much.

    Even death is no deterrent to a Democratic voter!

    I tried that once, but she hit the ceiling.

    Absolutely! I was bullied for a while in high school. Finally I had enough and went out behind the shops to fight one of the bullies. It was a draw, but the bullying stopped after that day. Also, there’s this:

    “Otis, a strong man stands up for himself. A stronger man stands up for others.”
    – Ben the Cow, “Barnyard”

    It would be nice if some of the big kids would stand up to the bullies too.

    A live camera pointing at a spot where a miraculous event may be happening brings up all kinds of possibilities for glow-in-the-dark costumes and simulated personal hovering. I’ll bet those cameras pick up many strange sights now that people know what they’re looking for. As for the banner, TBN just needs to build a large mast and put the camera on top of it.

    This is just another frat-boy photographer prank, like the guys who used to lie on the floor to get photos of John Ashcroft with the topless statues behind him. They had their choice of photos to use and they picked the most salacious one they could find. Too bad there’s no accountability in that profession.

    The BSA stance on homosexuality is not “controversial.”
