What was this? (Take 2)

Evidently, we have a tiny brained troll who thinks it amusing to post a comment or three consisting of nothing but "XXX" or "+++." This, of course, makes it nearly impossible for others to load up the comments as it takes over 20 minutes to load the troll's nonsense. So, we deleted the first post and are posting this again without the X's and +'s. Whoever you are, knock it off. You're ruining it for everyone else.

Has anyone else heard anything about this "suicide by explosive device" outside of the Oklahoma University stadium during the Kansas/OU game? No one as far as we can tell is covering this locally. We've checked both papers and the network websites - zip.

On it's face, this appears to be a failed suicide bomber attack as explosives aren't usually the preferred method of someone looking to harm themselves. This is someone looking to do some damage.

Yahoo/AP report is here, but they only mention the individual. You have to do some digging to run across this report (courtesy of Michelle Malkin) in the Daily Oklahoman (registration required):
  • A statement from OU president David Boren called the explosion "an individual suicide." The identity of the person killed was not known.

    A second device was found in the area and detonated by police around 9:05 p.m.

Michelle has done quite a bit of the heavy lifting, linking to FloppingAces.Blogspot.com who has individual accounts and eyewitnesses who saw a couple of people fleeing the scene. GatewayPundit has more coverage. Northeast Intelligence Network website relates one avenue of investigation is that someone was trying to hook bombs to buses in the parking lots and one went off - they also report additional device(s) were located.

Keep your ears and eyes open for info. Maybe it's something and maybe it isn't. But it deserves a look, especially in a sports town like this.

Former Gov. George Ryan was proclamed innocent today in an article by "STREETWISE". A close informant said "He did'nt know anything, what was going on". "He carried large amounts of cash to hand out to poor street vendors in need". You got's to have cash, if you want's to FLASH!

First Lady's Blago and Daley are going to start a program to teach Alderman and State Politicians how to get regular jobs once they been dumped out of government. Maggie said job training is crucial to our economy, we need experienced older people to keep our economy flowing. Mrs. Blago said that K-Mart, WalMart, Sams Club jobs are readily available to our husbands and wives, should they be dumped from office.

Hey, Blagos wife (Mels Daughter) and Mels other daughter, are'nt they both involved in some REAL ESTATE SCAM where they buy up cheap property and sell it to Big Real Estate Developers for HUGE Profits. How come the Slum Times quit reporting on that story?

Just on the tube, the City settled with Mearaday for 1.5 million.

Miracles never cease, lets see how long it takes him to get pinched out of state or in the burbs.

Initial caveat: white, Republican, hard-core conservative, and wish there were no ghettos with the Meardays of the world.

That said, these incidents were a complete and utter disaster. No matter how bad this punk is, some 25th district jackasses still managed not to shine while standing next to him.

First, a beating with an initial "wasn't us" that the bosses backed... right up til they showed it was Mearday's teethmarks and blood on *someone's* nightstick.

Then, very shortly after *someone* and his partner get fired, the tac team from the same unit manages to pick up Mearday on the street. And who is there to witness the arrest and swear up and down that its all on the up-n-up from the get-go? The 025th district tac lieutenant. Yup, riding around with his boys, and available to eyewitness and verify what would look to any outsider as retaliation! God knows the citizens and juries of this city trust us to do no such thing.

This piece of shit did not deserve one red cent of my money, of that I am sure. But if our people would quit acting so fucking stupid, particularly with the see-through lies, this piece of shit wouldn't be getting one red cent of my money.

And, in fact, the streets would almost certainly have taken his punk ass long ago.

Words of advice young uns...
I was afraid for my life.
I was afraid for my safety.
I was afraid for my partner's life.
I was afraid for my partner's safety.
I was afraid for the citizen's life.
I was afraid for the citizen's safety.

If a few pea-brains in 025 had been given proper guidance from the get-go, we would never have heard of Mearday again. Yup, if I were the bosses, I'd have given the two morons up too.

but part of my point is... if you gotta put a fist on someone, it doesn't matter why you did it... what matters is why you say you did it. There are only a few acceptable reasons for the paper, and I listed them all.

"Wasn't me" didn't work in the 90s, and it sure as hell don't work in the 00s.

Like you said, y'all better know how to write paper on this shit. But say you didn't do it... and have science come back to say ya did... then I'd give ya up too

From your description of the Mearday incident I can tell you have no idea of the facts surrounding the incident. Nightsticks were not used on Mearday. "I was in fear for my life" is not a blanket statement that gets you out of everything. A lot brighter people than you tried to fix that situation. The problem was the severity of the beating and C & T's initial panic after seeing what they had done. They made choices that they couldn't recover from. Nothing was going to save them except Mearday taking it like a man. Your attack on where they worked is typical of this job. Thank God they hired you. I'm sure you're personally responsible for the 25% reduction in murders. You're officer one bagger and now you run it. I hope that you find time away from your busy policing schedule to come on here everyday and give us a little lesson on police work. For the record, I worked with C,T, & M. I was no fan of theirs. They got me jammed up more than once. Our job doesn't have a little list of solutions you plug into the appropriate situation. These things are dynamic and alive. One day something may spin out of control on you. You'll get to see how smart you are then.

P.S.
I've heard the personal safety defense long before you were on this job. You're not a genius.

I wasn't there. However, I've had numerous "debates" with kneejerk defenders of C&T who had wiped the bad memories of the initial facts from their minds.

The bosses originally adopted their defense of "it wasn't us", and turned on them when indisputable evidence turned up with Mearday's blood and teeth imprints or whatever.

Your quibble is that nightsticks weren't involved? Ooooooh, burn! His blood and teethmarks were on something that belonged to C&T, right?

As for the fear for my life, I appreciate your nitpicking my blanket suggestion. God knows some moron on this job or another might just repeat it over and over, without trying to justify it, and blame me if they still got sandbagged. I'll stick with the defense though. If you have to use violence on someone, the only thing to remember is the underlying justifications which allow you to do so.

I didn't invent this shit, and never argued that I did. But its amazing that in a district with someone as smart as you, two officers managed to get completely tripped up in a web of indefensible lies.

And you can click your heels and repeat "[a] lot brighter people than you tried to fix that situation... [t]he problem was the severity of the beating and C & T's initial panic after seeing what they had done" a thousand times. It still doesn't change the fact that they, and the bosses who initially defended them, got caught in a stupid, stupid lie. Which bright people you talking about smart guy?

Not anybody in 025 or A5 who came within 5000 feet of the first incident.

Now if you people would go back and learn the basics, we wouldn't keep reading about you in the papers. Dynamic?

I was in fear for...

If it doesn't start with this, than the pea-brains and everyone within 5000 feet of the paper should be fired for stupidity.

You act the fool, you lie to your boss about what happened (and they did initially), guess what? Shit in, shit out. You can't beat everyone all the time and not have it catch up with you. You can't help people who won't help themselves. If you knew the 3 guys on that car then you would have seen it coming long before.

IF YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THE INITIAL INCIDENT, AND BY READING, YOU DO NOT, PLEASE REFRAIN FROM DISCUSSING IT. THERE ARE SURELY MANY THINGS IN WHATEVER DISTRICT YOU ARE FROM THAT CAN BE SCRUTINIZED WITHOUT KNOWING THE FACTS, BUT THEY WERE NOT JUDGED IN THE PRESS. THIS INCIDENT WAS NOT TREATED FAIRLY, AND DUE PROCESS WENT OUT THE WINDOW AS SOON AS PREACHERS, AND PRESS, AND OUTSIDERS GOT INVOLVED. WHERE THERE IS A NEST TO BE FEATHERED, THERE ARE WEST SIDE PREACHER TO STAND ALONG SIDE A "MISTREATED PRECE OF TRASH".

Actually, these guys were doing fine right up to the moment the tests came back. Unfortunately, some bosses had already been quoted in the press as saying that C&T hadn't touched Mearday. And paper had been written to say this. Sell your sob story to another sucker. Maybe the kids at the academy will buy it, but it ain't selling here.

They really fucked up. I was taught that if I was justified in lighting someone up, I should be able to say, Yes, I did it and why, and that I would do it again. Have sat in federal court accused of civil rights violations and got a hung jury. The city then settled anyway, just to make it go away. Most of the Corp. Counsel are useless and couldn't make it in the real world. That's another prime who you know or blow spot. The only saving grace is that odds are very good that Mearday will o.d., or wipe out in his new Hummer or whatever high end car he buys, or one of his own will stick him up for the bling-bling he will be sure to buy.

But yet you haven't lit anyone up or caused death or injury as severe, so don't talk about what you don't know

I agree...what you are taught and the reality of it afterwards is a nerve racking and highg pressure scene. Talk is easy, so is speculation. Until you've lived the pressure, you don't know the pressure.

Anyone who has ever responded with deadly force or caused death or near fatal injury would not be so easy to criticize. Thats how I know you haven't. Theres a chick in 25 you should talk to, she'll help you criticize. Word is she's real good at it.

LISTEN UP YOUNG LADS: You have to be GOOD on paper on this job, no wait, you have to be REALLY REALLY god on paper. YOU CAN KILL SOMEONE ON HTIS JOB AND JUSTIFY IT ON PAPER AS LONG AS IT WRITTEN RIGHT. I believe the Mearday incident was ALL fucked up on all fronts. Why didn't a supervisor grab these guys and put the fucking worms back into the can? Why didn't the guys co-workers come up and say " hey man this is fucked up if u say this is what happened? There are many checks and balances that failed that night. AS THE SAYING GOES' "IT IS WHAT IT IS, IT AIN'T WHAT IT AIN'T AND IT WILL NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT IT."

You saying there wasn't blood on a flashlight? I'm the one who said nightstick initially, and already acknowledged a "whatever".

But are you saying the overall point was wrong? If so, what was the DNA blood evidence they were arguing about in court? See http://www.state.il.us/court/Opinions/AppellateCourt/2000/1stDistrict/November/Wp/1990043.doc

I was pissed when Johnny Cochran and Barry Scheck argued against science to get O.J. off. I'm just embarrassed that two of our own had to resort to the same tactics, and that so many people still give them the benefit of a knee jerk response.

What did YOU do for Van Watts? That is my one question for every one of the good old boys who still defend C&T to this day. What did YOU do for Van Watts?

Yes there was a dime size spot of blood found on 1 flashlight right next to the switch, and it belonged to the officer that MEARDAY did not accuse of striking him a flashlight.

There was also blood all over the squad car, the officers, the ground and probably the baton that he was struck with. So by your argument, he must have been beaten with everything with blood on it??? Or is it possible that due to the two lacerations on his scalp and his seperated upper alveolar, blood got on alot of things?

P.S. reading a cold appellate court transcript is not
