The case for beating chase suspects.

After over a dozen innocent people died in Minnesota when criminals were fleeing from police by car, I began to ask, "When can police start shooting?" Threat of a relaxed jail sentence isn't a sufficient deterrent to keep criminals from wielding a 2 ton weapon, but the beating they should receive for all the near misses and dead people they leave in their wake might be. I say let the police beat away.

In the attached clip, the Today show conveniently left out the actual chase. Leading the viewer to believe that it wasn't the dangerous death parade it could have been.
ST. LOUIS - Police were videotaped punching and kicking a suspect after a car chase Monday, and officials are investigating to determine whether the four officers involved acted illegally.

Live television showed much of the chase, as well as officers apparently beating the man for several seconds. What could not be clearly seen on the video was how much the suspect was resisting.

The chase began in the St. Louis suburb of Maplewood, after officers said they noticed a man in a van acting suspiciously. It ended in St. Louis.

KTVI-TV video showed the suspect, Edmond Burns, 33, bloodied. He was hospitalized, but his condition was unknown. He had not been charged Monday, and he was not available for comment.

Another argument for allowing guns in the workplace.

Not to be out-done by her male counterparts in the apparently uber-demanding mail delivery profession, a female has now gone postal:
GOLETA, Calif. — A female ex-postal worker opened fire at a mail processing plant, killing six people before committing suicide, authorities said early today.
One other person was listed in critical condition, authorities said.

Deputies responding to a call of shots fired late Monday initially found two people dead outside the plant.

Two wounded women were located inside and were taken to a hospital. One died and the other was listed in critical condition early today with a gunshot wound to the head.

During a search of the massive mail complex, deputies found four additional bodies, including one believed to be the female shooter, Santa Barbara County Sheriff Jim Anderson said. The shooter, who was not identified, died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, he said.
Nothing says "easy prey" better than demanding that places of work are "gun-free zones." Someday someone will have to explain to the left that a workplace is only "gun-free" if terminated wackos don't come to violate your sign.

In the meantime, the left will work their hardest to keep guns out of the hands of the people who need them, making life more dangerous for everyone but the killer.

Losing the war he started, Usama yells "uncle!"

After a few years of taking the beating he invited on 9/11, Usama bin Hidin in a cave has announced that he's been foolishly holding out hope he can win. A new video from the Islamist Camel in Chief has offered a "truce". It's kind of like yelling "uncle" when you're getting a beat-down after picking a fight.

To his offer, George Bush said the following:
Dear Osama:

Happy New Year! I hope your kidneys are doing well. It must be a bear to drag that dialysis machine from hole to hole. About that "truce," thing... On a September morning in 2001, you undertook another act of war against the United States. No doubt you thought it would go unchallenged, as your escapades did in previous administrations. Under my leadership, a paper tiger the US isn't. While I'm sorry you misunderestimated me, allow me to make a counter-offer for the truce you seek:

Old joke, new twist.

Did I ever tell you the one about when I went to mass trampling and a hajj broke out?
MINA, Saudi Arabia — Thousands of Muslim pilgrims rushing to complete a symbolic stoning ritual during the hajj tripped over luggage Thursday, causing a crush in which at least 345 people were killed, the Interior Ministry said.

The stampede occurred as tens of thousands of pilgrims headed toward al-Jamarat, a series of three pillars representing the devil that the faithful pelt with stones to purge themselves of sin.

Osama dead?

If this report from Michael Ledeen is true, bin Laden has been returned to the earth - hopefully through the shit from the buzzards that picked away on his decaying corpse.
The al Qaeda leader died of kidney failure and was buried in Iran, where he had spent most of his time since the destruction of al Qaeda in Afghanistan. The Iranians who reported this note that this year's message in conjunction with the Muslim Haj came from his number two, Ayman al-Zawahiri, for the first time.

But don't question his patriotism.

It's common knowledge that restricting bloodflow to the brain severely inhibits cognitive function. That's what makes having a cranial-rectal inversion so dangerous. Once it's been up there a while, your find your decreased state of awareness normal and it's only when someone brings it to your attention, can you right this burdensome condition.

Slowly succumbing to the effects of oxygen depletion is Rep. John Murtha, who must have worn out his Marine welcome by now:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Rep. John Murtha, a key Democratic voice who favors pulling U.S. troops from Iraq, said in remarks airing on Monday that he would not join the U.S. military today.

A decorated Vietnam combat veteran who retired as a colonel after 37 years in the U.S. Marine Corps, Murtha told ABC News' "Nightline" program that Iraq "absolutely" was a wrong war for President George W. Bush to have launched.

"Would you join (the military) today?," he was asked in an interview taped on Friday.

"No," replied Murtha of Pennsylvania, the top Democrat on the House of Representatives subcommittee that oversees defense spending and one of his party's leading spokesmen on military issues.
It's still unclear if Rep. Murtha wouldn't enlist because of the military's Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy, or whether it's because Metamucil and Depends aren't standard issue.

Wait, did I write that before?

RIP Mr. Squirrel

A year and a few days ago. Sorry, Mr. Squirrel.
