I like riding in helicopters. For some reason, however, they keep demanding that I pay for all my helicopter rides. Free helicopter rides are reserved for people with serious medical issues.
The man hospitalized after a shooting in High Point this evening has been transported by helicopter to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.
Why do I say that his helicopter ride is free? And why isn’t his insurance going to have to pay for it?
Because his insurance is you and me. He keeps breaking the law and we keep paying the bill.
They found him shot dead in a parking lot.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police have identified a man who was found dead of a gunshot wound in the parking lot of an Applebee’s restaurant in south Charlotte last night.
And who gets shot in an Applebee’s parking lot? Was it an argument over a parking spot? Blood in the streets because Concealed Handgun Permit holders got into an argument that ended in death because of loaded, hidden guns?
Or was it a drug dealer getting shot?
There are monsters among us. Monsters who think that beating a seven day old child is acceptable.
The couple allegedly intentionally injured the child on April 12, causing a skull fracture, the warrants said.
What kind of monster thinks breaking a seven day old child’s skull is appropriate?
There is no hole deep enough for this creature.
I think that the fetish for Nerfing the world for children has gone too far. I’ve been known to blame all the ills of the modern world on two things, the income tax and school crossing guards (Kevin Baker, call me. I’ve got an Überpost for you on both subjects!). But I’ve never advocated running down children as they got off the school bus.
The State Highway Patrol has filed an involuntary manslaughter charge against the driver of a tractor-trailer truck that struck and killed a 7-year-old girl Tuesday afternoon at a school bus stop in Sampson County, then drove off.
You know I routinely look up the criminal records of people reported in the newspaper.
I’ll admit, I’m a bit surprised at this. But I guess driving a log truck is the only job a convicted felon and thief could get. And there is the well known principle that the two prime drivers of criminal behavior are inability to care about how your actions affect others and a lack of impulse control. Both factors that would lead to vehicle crashes.
And both caused by school crossing guards.
I’m just saying.
It takes a special kind of evil to torture a pet animal.
Three Monroe men are facing felony animal cruelty charges for setting the neighbor’s cat on fire.
Why would they do that?
Police reports state that on Sunday evening at the Castle Road Apartments (Suspect 3), a resident at the apartments, was upset that the cat had been getting on his car. He asked (Suspect 2) and (Suspect 1) to help him catch the cat. Witnesses say they heard him say “I’ll set it on fire”.
So the cat kept getting on his car, so he thought it would be a good idea not only to kill it, but to burn it to death so that it suffered before it died.
So the ringleader, who is still on the run, is not only a convicted violent felon, he’s an absconder from parole.
Words Sean wants to hear on this one: “Shot to death while resisting arrest.”
The Alamance County Sheriff’s Office has solved their case.
Three men have been charged in the death of a man whose body was found last month on an Alamance County farm.
He was murdered and dumped on a farm, only identified by a receipt that they found on his body.
Three felons murder a fourth. No word on the murder weapon, but you can be sure that the usual suspects will be blaming law-abiding gun owners for it.
There’s a creeper in Caldwell County, but luckily the police got him before something bad happened.
Caldwell County police have arrested and charged a Granite Falls man with one count of stalking and one count of secretly peeping into an occupied room.
What could happen, he’s just a creeper, right?
who has been convicted of attempted rape.
Was he looking for an opening to try again?
