Apparently this is Mr. Ricks' first encounter with the concept of editorial cartooning. He probably doesn't even realize that pushing his emotional buttons is precisely what was intended. I suppose we can be grateful that he's not an Islamist and the cartoon didn't depict the Prophet (Propeller Beanie Upon Him).
He's lucky they didn't unleash the dog. I had one take me down once upon a time, as part of a demonstration. Even wearing the Michelin Man suit, it was pretty unnerving. If you suffer from low blood pressure, it's one helluva remedy.
How on earth did I miss this gem? With the retirements of The Far Side and Calvin & Hobbes strips, it's pretty much the small town police blotter or nothing.
I'm going to have to file the frame up tactic away for future reference. I wouldn't have any idea where to find cocaine, but I have some hi-capacity magazines that I could plant on the mark. If memory serves, they're illegal after Hickenlooper signed those ridiculous bills a couple three years ago.
Focusing on ideas and opinions sans the gratuitous mudslinging is a fine idea, but the wannabe bullies don't have the intellectual firepower to make it happen. While George is among those who deployed personal attacks, he is far from the worst offender so I find his banishment a little curious when measured against some of our more genuine dbags.
I had engaged Schlichtman's predecessor on this topic & as far as I can tell nothing has changed since the Boyer regime. The SP&T lacks both the resources and the inclination to assign a babysitter, so the crybabies continue to rule the roost when it comes to forum supervision.
Chalk up a win for our resident crybabies. I had recently written George off as a troll, but trolls are remarkably easy to ignore. You crybabies oughtta give it a try. Any wagers on if this post gets me banned?
Amid reports of armed citizens standing guard at military recruiting stations and recommendations on how best to protect military personnel, Florida officials announced today that they will expedite concealed weapons permits for active duty military and veterans.
We know the self-righteous among us think me and this guy should have been arrested. It must be terribly disconcerting to know so much more about law enforcement than the cops on the scene. An unsatisfying cross to bear, I would think.
I suspect they're equally distressed with the Castle Doctrine. Here's a safety tip: don't use someone else's doggy door to facilitate your burglary attempt. The homeowner might shoot you in the head with his .40 cal.
It's a good thing that recruitment center in Chattanooga is a gun free zone. Just like Charleston, Aurora, Virginia Tech, et al. I encourage all you gun control advocates to plant signs in your front yards proudly announcing "This Home Is A Gun Free Zone." If it's good enough for our Marines, it oughtta be good enough for you.
We know the trolls think me and this guy should've been arrested. It must be disconcerting to know so much more about law enforcement than the cops on the scene. The trolls must be uber-anguished over the Castle Doctrine. Safety tip: don't try to facilitate your burglary attempt through the doggy door. The homeowner might shoot you in the head with his .40 cal.
Some decent observations I suppose, in a 'water is wet' sort of way. It's true that vigilant residents with their eyes peeled helped law enforcement apprehend the scumbag, which is contrary to the editorial's suggestion that we're too complacent and self involved. And even though the killer was quickly taken off the streets, it's cold comfort to the victim and her family.
We often hear people lament the state of mental health screening and treatment in the aftermath of episodes like Charleston and Aurora (I'm one of them). This piece doesn't even pay lip service to the issue. And while my immediate reaction is irritation, the unfortunate reality is that a loser going off the rails may never be preventable.
