CNN sided with the jerk tonight. Not a big surprise. Liberals wouldn't know a thief or trespasser if they fell over one. Self-important fucktards like this mope really irritate me. There's no excuse for his presumptuous behavior and hubris, and no extenuating circumstances. Just b/c you CAN doesn't mean you SHOULD. A real gentleman never takes advantage; and never acts like a jerk when he is called out for a faux pas. He didn't have to argue and probably wouldn't have gone to jail if he was contrite. Sure cops can be bullies sometime. But you have a better chance of enjoying the positive end of 'officer discretion' if you act like a man instead of employing animal instincts and circular logic.

Sounds exactly RIGHT. Hubris SHOULD have a price. This guy was obviously a self-important jerk and needed an attitude adjustment. He's the same guy who parks in the handicap spot "just for a minute", or right in front of the post office when everybody else parks in the designated parking spots. The value of the electricity has nothing to do with it, it's the arrogance of the thief that matters. This would be a perfect case for corporal punishment like meted out in some other countries, which BTW, would stop this kind of crap here. "So, mister big-shot, would you like thirty days in county jail...or seven lashes?" There'd be a whole lot fewer participating in the 'knock out game', and other crimes if some swift justice was carried out. Either plug'em, or give'em an immediate and memorable punishment. The idiots are out of control, and a slap on the wrist is no deterrent. (Friday Dec 6 | post #18)
"Round up the usual suspects"...i ncluding McAuliffe. Anybody who espouses edicts or fosters agendas contrary to our constitution is a traitor and criminal. Impeach them or Vote them out. (Saturday Nov 23 | post #3)
People who area afraid of good citizens carrying guns are afraid of the wrong people. We should be more concerned about the miscreants and amoral among us who use weapons to inflict horror on anyone they want to mug or torcher. This circular logic which is most often embraced by liberals that "guns kill people, so guns are evil" has to be short-circuited. We need to shout from the rooftops that BAD PEOPLE kill people, so therefore BAD PEOPLE are evil. Millions of law abiding people carry there firearms every day and just an infinitesimal get caught up in less than good behavior. On the other hand, every day hundreds of bad people are victimizing others using weapons of every type. Millions of responsible, sober firearms totters are not guilty of the misdeeds of the hundreds of bad guys. (Friday Nov 22 | post #3)
I really don't know what Ray Kelly is afraid of, he's in one of the most gun restrictive places in the U.S. What possibly could go wrong? Lots of good citizens carry firearms in my state. There are many fewer malicious shootings in the entire state than in NYC, Chicago, LA, etc. Could it be that more guns = Less CRIME? WHODATHUNKIT! (Wednesday Nov 20 | post #5)

How is this a surprise? Kalifornia...land of "fruits n nuts". Priscilla Queen of the Desert? (Wednesday Nov 13 | post #4)
Have to laugh at this nonsense. Racism stems from numerous sources, none of which should have any correlation to owning a gun, toaster, or washing machine. Racists come in every size, color, and socioeconomic 'class'. Racists are molded, taught, influenced, persuaded, incited and even converted. There are many more non gun owning racists than those who own guns, what's their excuse? Most of them were raised by racist parents, thus it was learned behavior. Some become racists later in life b/c of interactions with others. There is no absolute way to know where it comes from since there are so many reasons for it. Humans are complex beings; what drives us is almost as varied as the number OF us. And to make it even more difficult, we are changing our minds and heart almost hourly. (Wednesday Nov 13 | post #10)

I'd call the cops so they'd go find the rest before my dog brought it all home. One surprise like that is all I'd like thankyouverymuch. (Monday Nov 11 | post #9)
In this free Republic you are not only allowed to "disagree " with others, it's a protected Right, and should be encouraged. As long as the group was abiding by the letter of the (just)law and constitution, well, being afraid carries no weight. And acting within the confines of constitutional behavior does not make one a Bully. People of like mind are allowed to gather and make a peaceful statement, even IF they are not verbalizing it. This is one of the cornerstones of a Free country and must continue to be. (Sunday Nov 10 | post #1)
I thought a firearm was standard equipment for a convenience store clerk. If it isn't, it ought to be. The corporation is just covering their butt by carrying out the punishment for breaking the rules. It's their way to distance themselves from the act. This rule is to placate the insurance company, unless they are self-insured. If self insured, they still wouldn't want to risk an accidental discharge in their stores. So, they consider it better to lose a clerk and a couple hundred dollars to an unfortunate incident, than to permit their employees to defend themselves and the store and customers. I'm not siding with the corporation, just pointing out that it's a vexing problem from their POV. They ought to just make up their mind to allow those with carry permits to carry since the state considers them okay. (Sunday Nov 10 | post #2)
Great Father-Son activity; one any kid would gladly put down his smart phone for to spend some quality time with ol'dad. "Wadda-ya-thi nk of that one over there son, eh!" (Nov 8, 2013 | post #12)
WGAC radio Augusta reported on this yesterday saying the woman did more to cause this than just posting her permit. While holding a carry permit shows you as not having any entanglements with the law enforcement 'system', it does not necessarily guarantee you know how to act right in all situations. This was what was implied by the broadcaster. I am only reporting what I heard on the public airwaves. (Nov 7, 2013 | post #1)
Locking your car should be common sense, and a habit that should have been learned and begun when you first started driving. When it becomes a habit, you don't have to think about it, it just comes naturally and your car is always left in a safe condition when you leave it. I guess this is a cultural or environmental situation. Growing up and working many years in a big city I learned this early on and never left my vehicles unlocked when I was not with them. I guess country folk were never taught this. Time for a crime watch group to be out in force at this subdivision. It should be pretty easy to catch these people in a closed environment like this. Volunteers need to get out every night and watch for strangers, and even challenge anybody they don't know. There is nothing rude or illegal in asking somebody what they're doing in your small subdivision at late overnight hours, or anytime if they look suspicious. (Nov 5, 2013 | post #1)
