I do not know how to deal with this knowledge other than to continue drinking. We need to change our lives, not our laws.

I agree with the last part. Some people have a serious problem with empathy.

Don't make drinking a habit

Oh, lord, I didn't see this, either, 'cause I don't think I can stomach any more horrific stories today...that is for real?

*Looks at clock*

It's official. 7:47 pm-faith in humanity completely gone.

Sorry for the word, but that's the word that was used repeatedly

Yes, I can imagine their shock at seeing a black man during a football game.

Well, there appear to be fewer "monkey" comments compared to the tweets from the post-election Racist Twitter Convention, so ..... progress!

But they're the acceptable non Socialist (could be Muslim) black men who aren't trying to take our money and our guns and our country away from us. Plus they wear those helmets to keep their faces covered, don't have to look at their black faces.

So...do some people still want to insist that the objection isn't racially motivated?

Yeah, god forbid a few minutes are taken away from your precious football game so we can address a serious issue and a horrific tragedy. Assholes.

This story is not entirely disgusting, but it is also baffling. It is frightening and I think there is no need to start a thread to express every emotion.

But it is disgusting that local governments are going to great lengths to stop crime

Quote:
In response to a recent increase in crime, Paragould Mayor Mike Gaskill and Police Chief Todd Stovall offered residents at a town hall meeting Thursday night at West View Baptist Church what could be considered an extreme solution — armed officers patrolling the streets on foot.

Stovall told the group of almost 40 residents that beginning in 2013, the department would deploy a new street crimes unit to high crime areas on foot to take back the streets.

"[Police are] going to be in SWAT gear and have AR-15s around their neck," Stovall said. "If you're out walking, we're going to stop you, ask why you're out walking, check for your ID."

Stovall said while some people may be offended by the actions of his department, they should not be.

"We're going to do it to everybody," he said. "Criminals don't like being talked to."
Paragould Daily Press: Serving Greene County, Arkansas > Top Story

BTW, Paragould, Arkansas has a population of about 25,000. It is in Greene County which has about 45,000 people.

Now this is unconstitutional.

Oh how I hope the world ends tomorrow

WENTZVILLE, Mo. (AP) - A Wentzville man is jailed after allegedly becoming agitated during a barber shop discussion of the Newtown, Conn., shooting and allegedly shooting in the direction of a patron.

Assault, armed criminal action and unlawful possession of a weapon charges were filed against 57-year-old Lester Davis of Wentzville following the shooting Tuesday at All Cuts Barber Shop in Wentzville.

A patron made the comment that the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School made him want to kill the suspect. For unknown reasons, police say Davis took the comment as a threat and asked, “You want to murder me?”

Davis then allegedly went to his car, retrieved a pistol and fired three times in the customer’s direction. No one was hurt.

Davis turned himself in and is jailed on $400,000 bond.

There's also this story I just saw on Yahoo! this morning:

Fla. teen arrested for threat to 'shoot everyone' - Yahoo! News

Nope. Totally don't need any changes to our gun laws and attitudes about guns at all. Let's just all continue to live in blissful denial, because it's been working SO well!

Good god.

What really angers me is that there are some people who are against the banning of even assault weapons. I have a few Facebook friends who are so adamantly against any type of gun banning, even after what happened in Connecticut. Then again, those people are right-wing conspiracy theorists, and I probably should remove them from my list.

For the record, I consider all guns "assault weapons".

Nothing makes sense anymore.

Yes, but assault weapons are much worse and more deadlier than a regular gun. And yet, there are people who don't seem to care about the damage they cause. I just don't understand how anyone could read or watch reports on Newtown, and still believe people can freely own those types of guns.
