No more "officer friendly"

this pisses me off to no end ....

A police officer used his Taser gun on a 10-year-old boy during “career day” at Tularosa New Mexico Intermediate School.
The child had jokingly refused to clean Officer Chris Webb’s patrol car, and Webb responded by taking out his Taser and saying, “Let me show you what happens to people who do not listen to the police.” Webb then allegedly fired two barbs at the child, sending 50,000 volts of electricity into his chest and causing the boy to black out.

Instead of calling emergency personnel, Webb pulled the barbs out and took the child to the principal’s office. The boy, R.D., now has scars that were described as resembling cigarette burns.
“No reasonable officer confronting a situation where the need for force is at its lowest, on a playground with elementary age children, would have deployed the Taser in so reckless a manner as to cause physical and psychological injury,” the boy’s guardian ad litem Rachel Higgins said.


A complaint was filed against Webb and the New Mexico Department of Public Safety, and both are now being sued by Higgins on the child’s behalf. Higgins is seeking punitive damages for battery, failure to render emergency medical care, unreasonable seizure, excessive force, and negligent hiring, training, supervision, and retention.

In NC why can't Dalton get traction?

I have seen zero signs ... bumper stickers .... I ask people and they go
"who"? never heard of him .... some didn't even know who the Dem candidate
was .....

the election outcome IMHO

no links .. no punditry ... just what I have observed ...
House - stays GOP ....
Senate - Stays Democratic
POTUS - President Obama wins in a very close election ...
high unemployment is going to make it close ....

Don't give NC to Romney yet ....

on first day of early voting ... had bus loads of college kids rolling through ...
we could still see NC go to President Obama ...

Have a poll question ....

on RCP

They have MI - President Obama 48.6 / Gov. Romney 43.6 but they have the state has a toss-up .... the President is up by 5 ... how many does he have to be up for them to show it is his ?

ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. -- Authorities say a Democratic candidate for the N.C. Senate is in jail on charges that he sold prescription pills from his home.
Castalia town commissioner Clarence Alexander Bender was arrested during a traffic stop Thursday by Nash County deputies. Bender is charged with three counts of trafficking opium or heroin and maintaining a place for keeping and storage of a controlled substance.

Sheriff's Lt. Dennis Wooten said the arrest culminated a two-month investigation involving the Nash County Sheriff's Office and the Drug Enforcement Agency.
Bender was challenging Republican incumbent Buck Newton for the 11th District seat, which represents Nash, Wilson and Johnston counties
