Fayetteville PD puts gangs on Double Secret Probation

The Fayetteville Police Department has hit upon the ultimate solution to crime. The restraining order!
(Grumpy Old Man voice)
Hey, all you kids, stop breaking the law!
This polar bear tells you what he thinks of this plan.

Hey, here’s an idea. If they are dangerous, catch them breaking the law and put them in jail! It’s so simple! People in jail cannot come to the Dogwood Festival!

The (Anti) Hero of Canton gets a well deserved boot

The disgraceful piece of trash that was “Officer” Harless is now in need of new employment. One hopes that since he was fired that he will not be able to get another job as a police officer anywhere.

One also hopes that his appeal fails and he stays fired.
It’s good that we don’t have to send the REAL Hero of Canton in to sort the situation out.

This is why only cops should have guns

The gun grabbers often whine that only cops are mentally stable and well trained enough to handle the grave responsibility of firearms.

So what do they say about this? Did he magically lose all his mental stability and training the moment he resigned from the force about a year ago?
The badge and uniform aren’t a magical shield that elevates mere mortals into demigods. They are merely symbols of the office entrusted to them by the public. You have no less right than the police to defend your own life.

Detention Officer charged

This morning I posted about an incident where a Mecklinburg County Sheriff’s detention officer took a shot at someone who rear ended him and ran. Well it looks like they decided to charge him.
Now I wonder if I’d have got off so lightly, but at least he got charged. You can’t shoot at a fleeing person unless he poses an immediate threat to the lives of innocents.
Stolen car? That sounds like why they ran. Hopefully they will catch the hit-and-run car thieves. Their explanation should be interesting.
Here’s a thought. If you can’t be charged with failure to register a gun (in states that have gun registries) if you are a felon because that would be a violation of your 5th Amendment right against self incrimination, can you get off on a hit-and-run if your car is stolen? If you stay at the scene, the cops would catch you with a stolen car. Isn’t forcing them to stay at the scene tantamount to forcing them to confess to car theft?
And why is it that criminals always seem to get more rights than decent honest citizens?

If it was you or me, we’d go to jail

UPDATE: Detention Officer Charged.

Let’s say someone rear ends you and tries to drive away. Would you be legally justified in shooting at him? This isn’t an idle question. A Concealed Handgun Permit holder did just that in Charlotte.

So are NCGV and the other gun grabbers right? Does the presence of a gun lead to violence over fender benders? Well, there’s just one problem with that. This guy has a badge.
Was he handcuffed and shipped to his own county lockup for shooting at a fleeing car while he was off duty?
He might lose his job. You and I would lose our freedom, but he’s only worried that he might lose his job. Something’s wrong with that.

What do you do when your rights are violated by a cop?

How strange. He almost sounds like a firearms rights advocate. Or my dad.
What’s really strange is that he’s talking about bicycles. Two guys were out riding their bikes and got harassed, tasered, and beat down by a cop who thought bikes should stay off the road.
RTWT. It will remind you that we aren’t alone in this problem.

I wonder what the punishment for 1500 guns would be?

Let’s say you’ve just gotten a prison term and fine for attempted gun smuggling.
And this was for three handguns, so you have to be thinking, well, the ATF let about 1500 guns go, so the prison term and fine are going to be astronomical.
The ATF allowed at least 500 times as many guns go south, so that means the punishment should work out to 750 years in jail and $2 Million.
Sounds about right to me.

Gay basher not properly dealt with in Asheville?

Asheville, NC is widely considered a really gay friendly place. So why did this happen?
The second person is 15 years old, so no name has been released, but the first suspect has been charged with felony Assault Inflicting Serious Injury. Not surprisingly, a person who thinks it’s appropriate to punch a guy in the face because he thinks the guy is gay is a person who seems to have a cavalier attitude about following other social norms.
What’s more disturbing is the fact that instead of arresting the suspect, he was cited and released.
In what other situation would you be able to punch a dude in the face, causing broken bones, and then walk on a “promise to appear?”
Contrast this outcome with the situation that happened in DC and reflect for a moment on the fact that in North Carolina, unlike DC, you can actually get a permit to carry. When people get together in groups for the purpose of attacking anyone, they deserve to be shot.

I was all set to trash the guy and then I read all the way through

Let us specify up front that if these allegations are correct, the trooper should be fired.
If that’s what he really did, then his swift and ignominious exit from the State Highway Patrol is nothing more than he deserves. At a minimum his best friend would also deserve the most severe sanctions short of dismissal.
Of course, then I read about what she did.
Um, WTF? According to the story, the trooper alternated between demanding repayment of child support and getting back together.
It sounds to me that they both deserve each other. She works for Catawba County, in the Justice Center. I think that we would do well to dismiss both of them.  

Teh ebil Airsofts

Did you know that the police in Avondale, Arizona have so conquered crime that they now have time to go undercover to seize Airsoft guns?
What’s going on in Avondale? Have they given up on dangerous crime and instead are focusing on Airsoft kiddies?
