Quick hits!

For those of you too busy to read the papers or cruise the internet trolling for stories:

Aaron Patterson convicted again. Gee, do ya think that the police had it right the first time and maybe this goof might have been guilty? At the very least, he belongs behind bars.

Ted Kennedy thinks US Supreme Court nominee holds "cramped views" on the Voting Rights act. Wonder what Teddy's views are on driving and swimming drunk?

Frank Main of the slum-times continues his long history of misleading headlines, claiming a TASER device killed a man even though he had methamphetamine levels 5% ABOVE the known fatal doses. Let's blame the police if they use a device that will both save their own lives AND the lives of a psycho who could seriously hurt them, eh Frank? We think they ought to go back to just shooting the jagoffs who attack the police. The paperwork is easier and they usually give you a medal for it.

Here is the USA Today story "theleftisbest" was speaking about. Here is another version of it. Here is a link where you can write to ClearChannel and express your displeasure with their choice of on air talent. Remember: a polite, but firm letter will garner a response while a hate filled screed will cause them to dismiss you as a psycho.

An interesting article on why Hillary won't win the election in 2008.

How well do you know your US geography? Play this game and find out. We've gotten our average down to 9 miles of error. Play this advanced version and the states disappear after you place them.

Frank Main is a goof. The real problem is Scott Denton. He has a history of questionable findings. He once called the Area from Florida while on vacation to tell us that he had just determined that one his cases was a homicide. This determination was made on a beach. As usual he had to consult with people becuase he in incapable of making his own decisions

Dr. Donahue and Denton are both anti police. Dont for a minute assume their on law enforcements side. We beefed about Stein when the Mass transit guys fought that doper Ramsey on the El. Remeber his toxicolgy levels were high and no balls Stein ruled we killed the prick mental placing him under arrest. Three good policemen lost their lives/livelyhood because of the patronage hacks at the morgue. Denton is only looking out for himself financially to testify on behalf of the numerous taser law suits the lawyers are planning. The county has no rule about earning extra compensation. There supposed to be unbiased but love the media, and believe their the same as the tv coroners.

I have a problem with the Taser. They over-hyped, over-marketed by the Scottsdale, Arizona maker, somewhat ineffective, and cumbersome. I see a Tasers causing the death of cops trying to deploy them when they should have drawn their service pistols instead.

I’m hearing way too much about the companies marketing methods. After Taser gave a sweetheart company stock deal to the Houston police chief’s wife, that police chief sought and obtained a requirement that every officer be armed with one.

As an old-timer and range-master I say cops are better off carrying two guns instead. Nothing beats a smaller (size not caliber) hidden handgun in a tight spot.

I have no problem with the device being made available to cops that feel comfortable with them

Garda has a point about Denton setting himself up as an expert witness against the Taser.
