There is a poll on MSNBC that you should vote on. Let’s see if we can get it to 90% over 10%.
The police are only 10 minutes away. And apparently this is a “quick” response time for a potential mass shooting at a post office.
The building was closed to the public at the time, but workers were present inside the mail processing portion of the facility. Witnesses reported hearing a manager running and screaming that the man had a gun. They said multiple shots were fired.
Police Chief Kevin Murphy said the suspect, who hasn’t been charged yet, is in the late 20s or early 30s. It wasn’t immediately confirmed who the suspect is or if they are a current or former employee.
Murphy credited the quick response from several units for probably saving lives. He said the officers were on holiday patrol at a nearby shopping center and were on scene within 10 minutes.
Let’s try a little experiment with time. Pucker up your asshole as tight as you can and hold it there for 10 minutes. It’s scientifically proven that tightening your shit chute up like that raises your blood pressure and releases tiny amounts of endorphines into your blood stream, so this is the closest you can get to being in the middle of a mass shooting while just sitting at your desk. Notice the feelings and stresses that your body is going through as you feel the blood draining out of your head and rushing into your ass. Obviously you won’t be able to do a full 10 minutes, I doubt many people could do it for more than just 30 seconds without some practice.
The point is, a 10 minute response time is not acceptable. 2 minutes would be impressive, but still not sufficient. The only response time that is acceptable is the amount of time it takes one brave soul to unholster his concealed handgun and shoot that motherfucker in the dick. Double tap to make sure he gets the balls too.
There is a lawsuit right now pushing to do away with the Post Office’s kill zone policy of no guns allowed. A policy which, by the way, also conflicts with their other policy of allowing rifles to be shipped through their offices. This story is a great example of why it’s important to allow people to have the means to protect themselves, every where, every time.
Introduced by a Democrat? 2012 is shortly upon us.
The District would still require would-be gun owners to take a firearms safety course, but under the Mendelson bill they would be allowed to possess a gun temporarily while taking the course. Gun owners would no longer have to take a vision test and would only have to pass a test on the Districtâ€™s gun laws once, upon initial registration.
Also, residents would still be required to register their weapons with police, but they would no longer have to submit their guns to police for ballistic identification before taking them home.
Something to keep an eye on. Personally, I feel like the whole city should be set on fire by a vengeful deity. But since that’s not going to happen, I guess we’ll have to settle for Hope and Change.
1 year ago Juan A Be The Luchador gave birth to this mutant of a gun blog. Though he tried to hide in a nightclub toilet, it escaped and grew into the ugly 1 year old child it is today.
To date we have had a little over 37,000 visits and 64,000 page views. That’s not too terrible, is it? Not for a website that basically started as a joke. We are still a joke, but now we are a mildly successful joke.
We are celebrating by sending Juan A Be to the 2012 SHOT Show in Las Vegas. Maybe with a press pass we will be able to convince the big boys that we are Mexicans to be reckoned with.
Anyway, Happy Muffuggin Birfday GFE! Thanks to all you crazy assholes who read this site. We appreciate all of you.
Well, it finally happened.
Tyler, 48, had a concealed-carry permit, but his handgun was plainly visible that night in his holster, Johnson said.
“The suspects walk in and one immediately reached for Mr. Tyler’s gun,” Johnson said. Tyler did not draw his weapon.
I open carried for awhile. I was never comfortable really, I was always concerned that this might happen. It was a remote possibility, but those are the kinds of possibilities that seem to drive a lot of our perceptions of the world around us. Anyway, I stopped doing it. I wasn’t truly convinced that something like this would happen to me, I just couldn’t shake the uncomfortable feeling. I took comfort in the fact that it had never happened before, or at least not that anyone could remember. Can’t say that anymore.
I’m not against open carry at all, by the way. If you want to do it, then do it. But for the sake of yourself, have a plan. And don’t let that plan be to chase the bad guy around the store when he already has your gun.
So I’m not going to try. Just read this.
On a related note, I challenge anyone to give me one good reason pot is still illegal in 2011. The fact that it is should be a bomb proof clue that your government is not functioning for your benefit but for it’s own. Regardless of the ideological badge that your particular favorite politician wears, or the badge of the politician that you love to hate, all of them…ALL OF THEM…are bending you over an oversized oak desk and ramming their raging hard ons into your unwilling little assholes. Wake the fuck up.
Because one day you might just stick that gun in the wrong motherfucking face.
Mugger gets his punk ass beat like an Obama piÃ±ata at a Klan rally.
According to police, the near-victim said Miranda approached his car on near Kenneth Ave. and 55th St. and asked for a light. The man, who did not want to be identified, said he didnâ€™t have a light when Miranda pulled a gun, demanded valuables and told the driver to get out of the car, police said.
What happened next is probably what you would expect when someone tries to rob an MMA fighter: a struggle ensued.
Miranda was left with bad bruises all over his face and a bullet in his ankle after the gun discharged during the presumably one-sided fight, according to the report.
The UFC fighter was able to hold Miranda on the ground until police arrived.
My google-fu has only turned up one likely possibility for a UFC fighter named Justin who fits the general description.
UFC Record 10 – 5- 2
Nickname is The Insane One
If that is the right guy, it must have been dark or else this Miranda dipshit has some serious victim selection issues.
The same kind of douchebag who would spend $400 on shot glasses.
“WTF broseph? Why are you putting my certified faggot not dishwasher safe stainless steel ShotShellâ„¢ shot glasses in the goddamn dishwasher man? Do you have any idea how much those things cost me, broham?”
You cannot convince me that we are on the verge of economic collapse when shit like this exists in the world.
Got a few gems for you today. Now I don’t give a fuck how you feel about sagging pants, but chasing a guy down and shooting at him because of how he was running and holding his pants is inexcuseable.
An Orlando police officer shot at an unarmed man with saggy pants during a confrontation last weekend because the cop thought the man was reaching for a gun. But the suspect said his belt broke and he was just trying to keep his pants from falling.
Kevin Lorenzo Brooks, 32, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon â€” even though he was unarmed â€” after the confrontation with the officer Saturday.
Brooks told a detective he reached for his pants because his belt broke. The officer involved was placed on administrative leave pending the results of an internal-affairs investigation, according to police spokesman Sgt. Vincent Ogburn.
Typical, homeboy gets charged with a more serious (and in this case non-existent) crime because the cop was embarrassed by his own incompetence. I don’t care if you are ugly and black, you should not have to face a pat down from the cops for merely talking to someone on the street.
Next, a former sheriff goes Ted Haggard.
Sullivan, 68, was the elected Arapahoe County Sheriff for 19 years. He retired in 2002 and went on to become director of safety and security for Cherry Creek Schools. He was a nationally-regarded law enforcement figure and in 2001 as the National Sheriff Association named Sullivan â€œSheriff of the Year.â€
The investigation that led to Sullivanâ€™s arrest began in mid-November, according to contacts familiar with the case. They say several informants provided information to law enforcement connecting Sullivan to the distribution and use of methamphetamine.
As part of the investigation authorities say Sullivan agreed to meet a male informant and provide the man drugs in exchange for sex. Thatâ€™s when Investigators and members of the South Metro Drug Task Force arrested Sullivan.
Nothing like some meth infused buttsechs to get the evening started. That boy needs some JESUS in his life!
Ironically, Sullivan will be jailed in the Arapahoe County Jail, which was named for the legendary sheriff â€” The Patrick J. Sullivan Jr. Detention Facility.
Yep, that is some classic irony right there.
On June 5, 2011 Champaign police choked a 20 year old African-American man in the back seat of a squad car while he was in handcuffs. His crime? Asking why he had been stopped, roughed up, and pepper sprayed while walking in campus town.
Oh look, video!
People laugh at criminals who do stupid shit knowing that they are on camera. How much worse is it when a cop does it?
Another Youth, Gary McFarland, showed up at a press conference about police abuse a few days later with his jaw wired shut. His statement was that police broke his jaw while after they pepper sprayed him, threw him to the ground and put him in handcuffs.
Unlike Calvin’s case, the City of Champaign has refused to release the squad car video in the June 5th incident, but it was been obtained anonymously and posted here.
And finally, this shit is just sad.
BRIGHTON, Colo. (AP) â€“ A lawsuit claims Adams County authorities detained a deaf man for 25 days in jail without providing a sign-language interpreter before domestic assault charges were eventually dropped.
Timothy Siakiâ€™s lawsuit filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court seeks unspecified damages and a finding that Adams County officials violated the Americans With Disabilities Act over his May 14, 2010, arrest and detention.
The Denver Post reports Siaki doesnâ€™t read or write English or read lips, but he does communicate through American Sign Language. Deputies arrested Siaki after a noise complaint at a motel where Siaki and his fiancDee were verbalizing sounds while arguing.
Deputies responding to the complaint knocked down the motel-room door and tackled Siaki after he failed to respond to their commands.
25 days. That my friends, is truly fucked up.
