Zoning nazi's ring up a kill. We have turned the zoning department of our governments into super charged home owners associations with the power of police behind them.

First of all, let me say this, the entire story posted here is not correct, as is the case with most reporting from Brunswick reporters. Second, I agree with the fact it should be quite easy to determine if the wound was self-inflicted or inflicted by the officer. I cannot imagine you cannot tell if a shotgun blast was close range or from a distance and it is not that easy to kill yourself with a shotgun while running and if he had a shotgun I don't think there would be any question as to whether he had a weapon, it is not an easy weapon to conceal while police are shooting you with tazers and rubber bullets.

Bring back the causeway toll. Riff-raff don't like to pay toll - it cuts into their beer money.
