Yet another reason why I’m disgusted with our legal system

So the cops in Louisiana that beat that defenseless guy bloody are pleading not guilty, despite all the video evidence. This just makes me sick. I can totally understand issues regarding extenuating circumstances (insane overwork, high stress, etc.)… all of which might reasonably serve to mitigate punishments. But to actually claim, in the face of… Continue reading Yet another reason why I’m disgusted with our legal system

Reeker madness and our society’s lenience towards drunk drivers

So, apparently this rather dumb fella went to bail out his brother-in-law using money that reeked of marijuana. Long story short… the dispatcher suspected the guy was a-foul (smelling) of the law, the guy’s car was searched (with his consent), “a pipe and a small amount of marijuana was found” and now “he could face… Continue reading Reeker madness and our society’s lenience towards drunk drivers

Swing dance, go to jail

Water-swilling swing dancers… threat to a moral and orderly society. They Must Be Stopped! Or so goes the thinking of some pretty aggressive Salt Lake City law enforcement officials, as noticed by this (verified) forward: In Salt Lake City, during the 2003 Utah Lindy Exchange, the organizer Nate Landon was “Arrested” at 3 am for… Continue reading Swing dance, go to jail

Cell phone ban, schmell phone ban… I have BETTER ideas!

Last week, the New York City Council took the brave and apparently necessary step of legislating common courtesy by passing a resolution to ban cell phone conversations in public places such as theatres and restaurants. Surely we’ve all wanted to throttle clueless morons blathering stuff like “Hey, you wouldn’t believe what quiet and tender romantic… Continue reading Cell phone ban, schmell phone ban… I have BETTER ideas!
