Come to think of it...

I wonder how the Koreans are involved...

I'm offended...

It's a general catch-all offense that applies to anything that one could come across in any day of living. I need no justification for the offense, nor do I request any recompense from whomever dares to express their own opinion without considering my own delicate sensibilities.

However, since I'm not going to be specific about what has offended me, in order to retain as much leverage over others as possible, I am hereby taking suggestions from anyone whose own self-defensiveness has been triggered by my declaration of offense. I will either engage or arbitrarily dismiss those suggests, without explanation, as I see fit. Consider it something akin to an Open Mic Night with no predetermined guidelines.

You are all free to personalize your own offensiveness in response to my declaration of offense, reading into it any form of guilty feeling, disdain for me in particular, propensity to be an interfering busy-body, or just acting on your own desire to watch the world burn from your own participation.

Tone is important. A sarcastic, condescending and angrily written reply makes it all the more engaging and increases the likelihood of spirited debate. Please stubbornly stand by your own positions, long after any positive or intelligent discourse has left the exchange.

You're free to make straw man arguments and other lapses in logical rhetoric. Please nit-pick on minor issues, such as typos and grammatical errors. It's all game.

Try not to be abusive, though. But if you are, it's completely understandable. If you feel it necessary to rehash old grievances, this is the perfect opportunity to present them.

Make sure to bring your A Game…

If you're in the mood to increase your level of adrenaline and general excitement, relieve boredom and waste valuable time in pointless debate, this is your time. Waste it well.

Adrienne Brown: Suit accuses Cincinnati officer of arresting rape victim instead of helping her

CINCINNATI - A woman who says she was raped is suing a Cincinnati police officer for arresting her instead of helping her.

The woman says Officer Adrienne Brown took her to the Justice Center instead of a hospital and cussed her and treated her as if she were a criminal. The suit says Brown charged the woman with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct while intoxicated.

"She put me under arrest. She put me in a car,” the woman said on WLW Radio.

She said Brown told her to “ ‘get your (expletive) hands up!’ ”

“I'm getting my hands up for what? I'm a victim," the woman said.

Cruiser cam video shows Brown driving and the woman in the back seat banging on the divider and yelling at Brown to let her out of the car.

“You should never be in a situation where you don’t know your limit because you’re drinking too much,” Brown yells back at her.

Then Brown plays loud music on the radio to drown out the woman’s cries.

After she was booked into the Justice Center, the woman was held in a restraining chair with a bag over her head, the suit says.

Family of slain man sues city police, nightclub owners for $1.5M

BALTIMORE —The family of a Baltimore nightclub patron who was shot and killed alongside a plainclothes police officer during an altercation with police in 2011 has filed a $1.5 million wrongful-death lawsuit.

The lawsuit, filed by the family of Sean Gamble, seeks damages against the police department and the owners of the club.

Thursday marked three years to the day since the incident. The Gamble family filed their civil suit Monday just under the statute of limitations. The lawsuit has 20 counts, alleging negligence, violation of rights and wrongful death.

Gamble was shot during a fight that broke out at the Select Lounge in the early-morning hours of Jan. 9, 2011. The shooting involved plainclothes Officer William Torbit Jr. and several other officers.

Torbit had responded to a report of trouble at the club, and investigators determined he fired shots as he was stomped by a group of people involved in the fight.

Uniformed officers who arrived at the scene said they didn't know Torbit was an officer, so they fired dozens of shots, killing Torbit and wounding four others. Gamble was also killed in the melee; however, the identity of the person who fired the fatal shot is still being disputed.

Shoot first, shoot second, if a question gets asked along beforehand it'd be a miracle.
