The Campaign For DA

4.21.2015

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts




  • It will be short today. Between a trial today and Day 2 of the Electronic Project, I haven't been sitting around yelling at Fox News. 
  • I'll auto post a picture of the Electronic Project in a second. It will be the most ridiculous thing you've ever seen and it WORKS.
  • And based upon my obsession with it over the last three days, Mrs. LL might call MHMR on me. 
  • I don't know who the young weather guy was on CBS 11 on Saturday night when that wicked storm blew through, but he was pretty, pretty good.
  • There was some "manhunt" in Haltom City yesterday afternoon and the local anchor asked the reporter what a "blue warrant" was since the guy  had on out for him. I'll be dang, he got it exactly right. (It's a parole violation warrant.)
  • Blue Bell might be in trouble (as it pulls all of its products out of the stores.)
  • Early yesterday I tried to find Troy Aikman's awkward remembrance of the OKC bombing at the music awards from Sunday night. I haven't checked since.
  • Crazy lightning strikes near Rhome this morning. 
  • Outside of Houston: "Trooper shoots motorcyclist during chase, kicks him off bike."
  • I mentioned the other day that every time the legislature bans a new synthetic drug, a more tricked up (and more dangerous one) is created. I watched the most recent episode of Vice over the weekend and that was the subject.

RMG looks like she could kick your ass and make you like it

We don't blame you for sitting around watching Fox News...CNN, MSNBC and the remainder are mindless editorials posed as news. Good call, Barry!!

On weather: The Channel 5 gal this morning kept repeating that there was no to little threat of storms today -- only tomorrow. Then by 8:00 she was talking about hail at DFW airport. I wonder if she realized how stupid it made her and her job seem?

I have a better idea for a "Dummies" book. "HOW NOT TO GET SHOT BY POLICE for Dummies". Chapter 1. Don't kill anyone and then point your gun at a cop when they come to "disrespect" your right to kill other people. Chapter 2........

When did refusing to stop become a offense punishable by shooting. The trooper should have been fired, you've got the guys license plate on camera and you know who he is, catch him later or just pursue longer. This crap is getting out of hand.

God was trying to clean house a little. Darwin wasn't working fast enough.

That trooper should be fired if he discharged his weapon four times and failed to hit his target.

does anyone watch "cops"
all the shit in the news seems pretty lame compared to how partiers and crack heads are treated.
bottom line is if you don't want to get beat up or tazed or shot. then just submit. your going to jail anyway so don't make it worse.

Well said 10:20. I say if you run you get your ass beat for running. At least the perp will have another reason to run because he, or she is gonna get an ass whoopin.

Yeah, just submitting worked well for the jews with the last storm troopers.

Today's RTG must be at least a 7.5 on Bacon's scale...

Disarm the police. Make everybody take lie detector tests during court trials.

Is it true that the Bridgeport Athletic Director did not get his contract renewed last night? The Messenger twitter reported that but it wasn't in the update and you didn't report it.. Seems like big news if its true.

I find much more serenity when I don't watch the news. Same as when I skip a day and don't read it. SOS!

Suspended him for 2 days for excessive force but shooting him was okay.

Operating a vehicle at a high rate of speed makes it a deadly weapon and endangers innocent lives. If it takes a bullet to stop the vehicle, instead of a high speed chase, I have zero problem with that in a populated area.

Once they've stopped or surrendered though, punishment is not part of the officer's job description.

I didn't see the kick as excessive for to the operator, but the bike was probably damaged.

I will still eat Blue Bell when it comes back because it is a wonderful, family oriented business that will do the right thing and protect it's customers from future problems. This could happen to ANY company.

Katy Anders said...

I am outraged.

OUTRAGED!

Anonymous said...

9:13 You sir are an idiot. The outrage is over police gunning folks down who pose no direct threat that would require lethal force. You and the whole, "well if you don't break the law" crowd need to wise up, this could happen to you.

" I'll be dang, he got it exactly right"

Maybe because he is the ex-PIO for the Dallas Sheriff's office who now works for NBC.

Speaking of PIOs working for stations I wonder if it helped WFAA when Desoto police shot that Portland fellow, since their morning traffic guy is the Desoto PIO.

I can't believe you didn't mention the fact that Danny Henson's contract did not get renewed last night.

Anonymous said...

I think there are about a dozen people concerned with Danny Henson's contract. Barry's not one of them. Get over it.

That RTG is HOT!
Nothing like a nice cushiony a$$.
Mmmmm... yeah!

Funny s*!^ when he kicked him down! Everyone seems to forget how many people are hurt by fleeing persons I would have gave him a week off with double pay and a hand full of ball game tickets . Could have just run over him >

I believe that 4 prosecutors have left the Tarrant County DA office this month, for those keeping score at home. I might be wrong, might be 5 or might be 3.
