Heart Beat - Seduction

Raid Of The Day: "This is what happens when your grandma sells crack."

From a lawsuit recently filed in federal court:

Chicago police terrorized six children in the wrong apartment, demanding at gunpoint that an 11-month-old show his hands, and telling one child, "This is what happens when your grandma sells crack," the family claims in court.

Lead plaintiffs Charlene and Samuel Holly sued Chicago, police Officer Patrick Kinney and eight John Does in Federal Court, on their own behalves and for their children and children.

The six children were 11 months to 13 years old at the time. Plaintiffs Connie and Michelle Robinson are Charlene Holly's daughters.

The complaint states: "On November 29, 2012 in the early evening hours Charlene Holly was in the first floor apartment at 10640 S. Prairie in the front room helping minor Child #1, Child #2, Child #4, and Child #5 rehearse songs for their church choir. Charlene was also caring for Child #3, who was 11 months old. Child #6 was in the upstairs apartment alone.

"Charlene and the children heard a loud boom outside and a voice cry out 'Across the street!'

"Defendant Officers John Doe 1-8 burst through the door to the first floor apartment dressed in army fatigues and pointing guns at Charlene and the children. The officers yelled at Charlene and the children to 'Get on the ground!' The officers referred to Charlene and the children as 'm---f---ers' numerous times . . .


When we're gone and the next organized evolved sentient species looks back into the fossil record…

I wonder what they'll think of us.

It probably won't be too favorable an opinion.

He's on his way back…

The RNC wishes everyone a happy International Women's Day…

A fond farewell to the Pope…

Ten Random Pieces of Advice From MrScorpio

- Although it's true that the best way to generate heat is with friction, never underestimate the importance of good lubrication.

- If you come to a fork in the road, look around for some matching knives and spoons as well.

- It's never too late to learn another language, especially for places that lack an extradition treaty to your home country.

- A kind word and polite conversation may head off the need for U.N. sanctions.

- If you ever find yourself in a situation that you can't get out of, blame your predecessor. However, this works only once. The next time, your successor will be blaming you.

- Just remember, loss of suction is nothing to brag about.

- If you lose something, try and consider it to be a trial separation with an option for divorce. If you're still paying for something that you've lost, think of it as alimony.

- What are you waiting for? That fish taco won't eat itself.

- Do your best to not criticize anyone else's taste in music. Your own 80's phase may come back to bite you in the ass.

- Treat others as you yourself would want to be treated. Sort of like a mutual social hand job.

It's called "Stigmatization"…

I've just realized, with Meta gone, the Metaites will be flooding into GD

For the longest time I could hang around in GD without getting hassled.

I have a sneaking suspicion that my GD experience won't be the same.

Sooo, I guess that you'll be seeing more of me here in the Lounge.
