That’ll Teach Ya To Brag

A 22-year-old Mineral Wells man is in jail after allegedly posting on his Facebook page that he had more than a dozen warrants out for his arrest.

Authorities say Eddie Smith’s Facebook page on Jan. 20 boasted of having 16 warrants out for his arrest

Yep — post on Facebook that you are wanted on a dozen warrants. Have friends of dubious level of ‘friendship’. Facebook’s single level of ‘friends’ is a rant I’m going to pass on for today.
And cops will find you to collect on those warrants. Sometimes the crooks make it easy.

Sometimes the victims make it all too easy also

Melissa Pace had her car broken into last week while she worked out at a Lifetime Fitness in Flower Mound. She’d left a tote bag in her Escalade with her credit cards and driver’s license.

“Lifetime has cameras, and so I thought, ‘Who in the world is going to do it?’ because there are cameras all over the place, but I was wrong,” said Pace.

Police believe the same suspect was caught on security camera video taken after another smash-and-grab spree at a Lifetime Fitness in Colleyville as the suspect used a stolen card at a nearby Hobby Lobby.

Colleyville police call the man a dedicated opportunist who’s watching for women who get out of their cars without a purse.

Yeah, cameras have really proven to stop criminals. I simply can not understand the mindset that thinks cameras keep crime from happening. We see media report after media report of criminals being caught ON CAMERA during and after the crime. Wouldn’t you think anyone paying the least bit of attention would make the connection that camera does not equal crime free?

 

Chutzpah — example of, politician type.

Dallas County commissioner John Wiley Price will be in federal court on Tuesday, and he is asking taxpayers to pick up the legal tab in his corruption trial.

The embattled commissioner will also face a judge to ask for two separate trials — one for alleged bribery and the other for alleged tax fraud.

Back in September, a federal judge denied Price’s request for a court-appointed attorney, saying that he could afford to pay for his own legal defense.

The federal trial is set to begin in January of next year.

Price has pleaded not guilty and has maintained his innocence. Fellow commissioner Mike Cantrell pushed for Price to be suspended from commissioner’s court, but the efforts failed and Price refused to step down.

Jiminy Crickets — this man has no shame at all. Awaiting trial for using his political position for personal gain and he wants the taxpayers to defend him.

That is a determined woman…

and her revenge is definitely cringe-worthy !!

According to reports in China, two-timing dad-of-five Fan Lung, 32, used his wife’s phone to send lover Zhang Hung, 21, a saucy email from his marital home in Shangqiu.

But he forgot to log out of his account and his stunned wife, Feng, 30, came across the message along with several others, which sent her flying into a rage.

Furious, she’s said to have grabbed a pair of scissors and stormed into their bedroom, where he was sleeping, and snipped off his manhood.

Fan was rushed to hospital, where the organ was sewn back on.

Yep, channeling the spirit of Lorena Bobbit; she physically assaulted her husband and extracted vengeance. But the story doesn’t end there.

However, Feng is then reported to have sneaked back into her husband’s hospital room and cut off his penis for a second time, this time throwing it out of a window.

Hath hath no fury like a woman scorned — Snipping it off once is a terrible act; going after it the second time is just down right vicious. Wonder how many women who would normally condemn domestic violence are cheering this time.

And in a classic ‘completely understated manner’ the hospital said:

The hospital spokesman added: “The man had lost a lot of blood and was taken in for emergency surgery.

“He is now in a stable condition but is extremely emotionally distraught.”

Oh…….forgot to mention exactly why he is ‘extremely emotionally distraught’ — as if two such attacks weren’t enough!

A hospital spokesman said: “The first we were aware of what happened was when someone came into the reception area to say a naked man was beating up a woman outside the hospital.

“Staff rushed out to see what was happening and found the patient with blood streaming down his legs hitting the woman.

“He was stopped and the woman was taken in for treatment, and then we discovered she had chopped his penis off again.”

Doctors and police officers combed the area outside but failed to find the man’s missing member. They believed it may have been taken by a stray dog or cat.

I’ll let others make the obvious jokes -I’ll just say that I’ve always believed that cheating doesn’t pay. And mixing metaphors; this may paid an extremely high price for his actions.

 

 

According to the Antis…

…..we should be seeing widespread bloodshed, rampant violence and multiple deaths in every city over the controversial call in Green Bay*; right?

 

.

.

What with the dangers of a gun in the home or people just snapping or people being law abiding until suddenly they aren’t. Shouldn’t the playoff losses have triggered wide spread gun fire?
Surely all those homes, estimated by survey to be 38%, out of 132,802,859 ‘housing units‘ means (doing math .38*units….carry the one) =50,465,086.42 — let’s call it 50.5 million housing units.

Surely 1% of the people with firearms in their homes snapped, couldn’t take it any more, got into an argument and went for their guns; right?

As for “carrying,” it’s now legal in every state in America and allowed in ever more situations as well. In the last year, for instance, Idaho, where that mother died, became the seventh state to green-light the carrying of concealed guns on college campuses. To put all this in perspective, less than two decades ago, fewer than a million concealed weapons were being legally carried in the U.S.; now, more than one million people are permitted to carry such weapons in Florida alone

If, to a visitor from Mars or even (as Ann Jones points out in “Is This Country Crazy?“) Europe, all this might seem like the definition of madness, it’s also increasingly the definition of a way of life in this country. What was once the “tool” of law enforcement types, the military, and hunters is now the equivalent of an iPhone, a talisman of connection and social order. It’s something that just about anyone can put in a pocket, a purse, or simply strap on in the full light of day in a land where all of us, even toddlers, seem to be heading for the O.K. Corral.

And let’s not forget the New Year often brings a large number of divorce filings. Domestic violence is a huge problem without a doubt; so why didn’t every newspaper and media station in the country include yet another case of domestic violence escalating into a shooting.

Instead this is one of the few stories being reported on in the gun friendly Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex

One man died and two men were injured in a shootout between a Hurst homeowner and two men police suspect of armed robbery Thursday night, according to authorities.

Hurst police said a driver parked a blue Mitsubishi Mirage in a residential area in the 100 block of Charlene Drive at about 8 p.m. A homeowner grabbed his gun when he saw a man exit the vehicle and run through a field behind the neighborhood toward a nearby convenience store.

The man went into the convenience store in the 200 block of Norwood Drive, robbed the clerk and a customer at gunpoint and then left, police said.

As the man ran back through the field toward the vehicle, police said the homeowner “challenged” him. A gunfight erupted between the homeowner, man and driver and all three were shot, police said. The gunfight continued as the driver and man drove away toward Euless.

As Hurst police responded to calls about the shooting and robbery, Euless police said they responded to a gunshot victim call in the 3000 block of Sycamore Circle and found a Mitsubishi Mirage and two men with gunshot wounds later identified as the man suspected in the armed robbery and the driver.

One of the men was pronounced deceased and the other was transported to a hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries.

The homeowner was also taken to a nearby hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries.

Yep, a homeowner who paid attention to what was going on (other reports have stated his home had been robbed a couple of times) ended 1 criminal career and  suspended (given the revolving door justice system) of another.
Did other violence happen in the last couple of days; sure. But not at the levels the antis tell us we should be seeing if the antis are right. And wouldn’t the firearm related violence be higher in gun friendly Fort Worth Texas than say Chicago Illinois ?

Maybe just maybe the anti-rights cultists are over-stating the dangers of normal people owning firearms, eh. I’m trying to be charitable and not accuse them of out-right lying.

Please join the discussion.

Media Coverage

Let’s not ascribe to malice what can be explained by greed, eh.

 

On Tuesday morning, an improvised explosive device (IED) was detonated next to the local offices of the Colorado Springs, Colorado, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) headquarters. While no one was harmed and the damage was minimal, the FBI found a gasoline can next to the bomb that failed to ignite and cause more damage.

The attack was disturbing to say the least, but what is more profound is the general lack of coverage it has received by major media outlets. It took CNN half a day to report on the bombing and nightly news networks gave little to no mention of story that night.

 

Ohh….it took a day and a half for the national media to realize that something that damaged only property was a serious terrorist attack on the NAACP — and that is a sign of racism !!

How about we step away from the edge of victim-hood for a minute and look at the facts.

No one was killed or injured in the explosion, and there was “only minimal surface charring to the exterior wall of the building,” which also includes a hair salon. The explosion could have been much worse, however, as the explosive device was placed next to a gasoline can in an apparent attempt to increase the force of the explosion. The gasoline did not ignite.

Yep, there was minimal damage to the building. Of course the speculation (probably correct) that the target is the NAACP could be wrong; maybe someone was just ticked off at a bad hair cut.

The FBI statement adds that a “potential person of interest in this investigation is a Caucasian male, approximately 40 years of age, and balding. He may be driving a 2000 or older model dirty, white pick-up truck with paneling, a dark colored bed liner, open tailgate, and a missing or covered license plate.”

Hmm, hard to conclusively identify the person as a racist from that brief description, eh. And we know how the media always gets the information right.

Although the apparent bomber’s motives are not yet known, bombings were a common terrorist tactic during the Jim Crow era.

Gee, what? Wait!! The bomber’s  motives aren’t known. Man, I’m in a weird position here, apparently I’m racist also, of defending the media for NOT jumping on a story. All too often the media jumps in with speculation, innuendo and wrong information. The one time they slowly, and in my opinion, correctly wait for more to be known that is a problem for some people. This is why I said we need to step away from the edge of victim-hood; there will be plenty of time to throw the victim card, the race card, the conspiracy card -after the facts are known. Of course that simply flies in the face of modern concepts and beliefs — “Facts, We don’t need no stinkin’ facts”.

 

And in the mean time, let’s consider, just possibly that the story didn’t make headlines immediately because of the media’s focus on stories that are more scandalous, more salacious. Every knows the media maxim “If it bleeds it leads” — and this story simply didn’t fit that.

A Well Deserved Arrest

Framingham Police Lieutenant Harry Wareham tells Boston.com(http://bit.ly/1H7kUSq ) that Lindsey McNamara entered the station Friday morning with a Dunkin’ Donuts box full of raw bacon and sausage. He says she approached an officer with a “great smile on her face” and said she was there to “feed the pigs.” He says she then took the meat from the box and smeared it on the window. She was arrested and charged with malicious destruction of property.

Good grief; nyone who would do that to bacon should be charged with destruction of property !!!

Divine Retribution?

We may never know….but how likely of a coincidence can it be?

 

A hair-raising video has emerged that a car full of masked robbers exploding moments after they raided a church in Russia – and witnesses insist they were hit by lightning.

The dash cam footage uploaded by YouTube user World News TV, shows a vehicle speeding along with a police siren sounding in the background.

All of a sudden the car bursts into flames and explodes, sending debris all over the road. 

.


.

According to a caption accompanying the video, everyone in the runaway car died as a result of the electrical bolt.

Wasn’t planning on stealing from any churches anyways but this really helps me to keep away from that idea.

 

The “Free Drinks List” Grows

Every now and then I come across a story that prompts me to make the offer; if this lady is ever in the area, I would like to buy her a drink.

 

Darn it, video starts in auto play — sorry folks – check below the fold for a good story.
