"Where is she?"

"I'm coming, Mother."

And to think, when I fired them as my insurance company, they asked me why

That was a true story!

Only if…

"Is, Too!"

"God will judge America over abortion and gay marriage."

I'm up to 24 people ignoring me now. Every time I get a new one, I'm throwing a party

Too bad that they can't join!

Instead of calling these things "assault weapons", I propose that we call them something else...

"Militarized People Killers"

Although the Walther people may take issue with calling them "MPKs", they have their own niche cut out in the Militarized People Killer market:

The thing is that "Assault Weapon" is such a nebulous term. We should use terminology that describes what these things are made to do, allow civilians to perform the job of people killing in a way that a soldier would do it.

After all, home based people killing is where the rubber hits the road anyway, right?

NYPD’s controversial ‘Stop & Frisk’ policy ruled unconstitutional

January 8, 2013

A key part of the NYPD’s controversial “stop and frisk” tactic has been ruled unconstitutional.

Manhattan Federal Court Judge Shira Scheindlin ordered police to refrain from making trespass stops outside private residential buildings — even though the landlord has given officers permission to do so as part of the NYPD’s “Clean Halls” program.

“While it may be difficult to say when precisely to draw the line between constitutional and unconstitutional police encounters such a line exists, and the NYPD has systematically crossed it when making trespass stops outside buildings,” Scheindlin wrote in a 157-page ruling.

The New York Civil Liberties Union argued in an eight-day hearing in October that “Clean Halls,” which exists only in the Bronx, leads to people being hassled by cops and sometimes cuffed near their own abode for no legitimate reason.

The NYCLU’s legal challenge centers on the case of Jaenean Ligon.

In August 2011 the mother of three sent her 17-year-old son to buy ketchup for the family’s dinner.

Two plaintclothes cops stopped the teen outside the family’s building on E. 163rd St. in the Bronx. Two uniformed officers also arrived on the scene.

After frisking the youngster, one of the cops buzzed Ligon’s apartment and asked she come downstairs to identify her son. Ligon testified the request sent her into a panic because she feared the worst — that her son had been seriously hurt or killed.


About freakin' time!
