Police fatally shoot & Tear Gas Wrong House
What is up with this? Anyone know?
__________
A standoff in Butler County ended with state police fatally shooting a man.
At about 5:30 p.m. yesterday, Butler police were called to a house on Bredin Street, where a resident, Keith Tack, 48, reportedly was threatening to hurt himself, state police said.
According to state police:
Authorities could see a gun and heard gunshots coming from inside the home.
The state police Special Emergency Response Team attempted to negotiate with Tack during the next three hours. At about 8:30 p.m., Tack walked out of the house and pointed his gun at police.
Three state police troopers shot at Tack, who was hit and died at the scene.

Thats some bullshit because state troopers or any other law enforcer is constantly trained to disable the crimanal without having to kill them.

Disable a guy that is pointing a gun at you without killing him? Are you retarded? All that guy has to do is pull the trigger and you may be dead. They should have shot him in the knee so he could return fire? That may be the dumbest comment in the history of this board.

If your such a Steven Seagal yourself, why dont you grace our local police force with your genius? Those men risk their lives to protect our community. Everyones human, everyone makes mistakes. I want to see you risk your life trying to keep this crazy town safe before you go making fun of our police force.

No. I just believe that if you are going to insult someone's intelligence, you should do it in a manner that shows that you have a high school diploma.

Economy Slayer?

The 3rd quarter of 2008 saw an econmoic DECLINE of over 4%. The 4th quarter, a DECLINE of over 8 almost 9%. By the 3rd quarter of 2009, the decline had been reversed. EVERY quarter since has seen economic GROWTH. Admittedly nominal growth, but GROWTH. Yet somehow Obama an economy slayer?

Your hate blinds you to reality.

Do you know anything about history, and our system? Other than what you make up.

Clinton was impeached by the congress, which files articles of impeachment but does NOT try the case. The articles of impeachment where for perjury & obstruction of justice, NOT treason. He was subsequently tried, and ACQUITED by the senate. The Republicans, by the way had a 55-45 majority in the senate. Yet did not even get a majority vote for conviction. Let alone the 2/3 needed.
