North Jersey police officer sells "House of Pain" T-shirts. Police chief condones it.

Great PR, guys!

At least one member of a North Jersey police department is selling t-shirts with the department's name and a logo some people believe is in bad taste -- given some of its officers have been accused of using excessive force in arrests.

The shirts have the Elizabeth Police Department's name and feature a "fighting Irish" man in police uniform, modeled after the University of Notre Dame's fighting leprechaun, as well as the words "House of Pain."

But Police Chief John Brennan said he's fine with it because the image is just a play on an album cover for the 1990s hip hop group House of Pain, best known for the song "Jump Around."

"The shirt has nothing to do with violence," he said in a phone interview.


ABSURD: Church blesses AR-15 assault rifles

Indefensible (both dodging AR-15 bullets and this particular church's glorification of deadly weapons).

NEWFOUNDLAND, Pa. (Reuters) - Hundreds of couples toting AR-15 rifles packed a Unification church in Pennsylvania on Wednesday to have their marriages blessed and their weapons celebrated as “rods of iron” that could have saved lives in a recent Florida school shooting.

Women dressed in white and men in dark suits gripped the guns, which they had been urged to bring unloaded to the church in the rural Pocono Mountains, about 100 miles (160 km) north of Philadelphia. Many celebrants wore crowns - some made of bullets - while church officials dressed in flowing bright pink and white garments to go with their armaments.

Reverend Hyung Jin “Sean” Moon, leader of the church after the death of his father and church founder, the Reverend Sun Myung Moon, blessed the roughly 250 couples at the service, a church spokesman said.

The Feb. 28 marriage blessing ceremony had been planned long before a man with an AR-15 assault-style rifle massacred 17 students and school staff in Parkland, Florida, on Feb. 14, the spokesman said.

MLB makes a positive change: Maximum of 6 visits to the mound per 9-inning game

Some may argue that 6 is still too many but it's better than the ridiculous number saw some games. Catchers in particular were taking advantage.

NEW YORK -- Major League Baseball is imposing stricter limits on mound visits in an effort to speed games but decided against 20-second pitch clocks for 2018.

After more than a year of negotiations, the Major League Baseball Players Association refused to agree to the changes but also signed an agreement that it will not oppose the new rules.

The new rules announced Monday include a general limit of six mound visits per nine-inning game without a pitching change, whether by a manager, coach or player. The changes also attempt to force half innings to start on time.

MLB has the right to make playing rules changes without an agreement with one year notice and made both proposals during the 2016-17 offseason.

Just wow.

"I'm just cleaning up my own mess. Thanks."

Great reaction to Trump tweet

"Where was your due process for the Central Park Five?" I've seen a few Twitter types ask that question in response, and it's a damn good question!
