Report: AR cop pointed gun at stepson, 5, threatened to blow his ‘Jewish brains out’

I want to point out an 2 items I found in this story that adds to my conviction that WTF is wrong with the cops in this country?

"Naaman Adcock, 40, resigned Wednesday morning from the Fort Smith Police Department after being charged with suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, possession of a firearm while intoxicated, reckless conduct with a firearm, felonious pointing a firearm and child endangerment, according to the Times Record.

According to the girl, her stepfather had been drinking heavily and screaming at her mother while holding a gun. Adcock allegedly said, “Damn, this doesn’t have any bullets,” referring to the gun, before pointing the gun at the boy. The girl alleged that Adcock said he would blow the boy’s “Jewish brains out.”

Deputies went to the Adcock residence where Adcock opened the door with a pistol drawn and pointed at the officers. A deputy drew her weapon and ordered Adcock to drop his gun. Adcock complied after first waving it around and stating, ” “What? Oh really, are you going to shoot me?”"

The Fort Smith Police Department is conducting its own investigation. Deputies said they took nine of Naaman Adcock's weapons when they arrived."


This cretin was allowed to 'resign' which means he will probably keep whatever pension he has coming; '...pistol drawn and pointed at the officers' who did not blow him away.

Add to the crap this story generated;

While I was looking into news stories, I looked at both a TV station's story;


And the local newspaper's account;


They were pretty much the same, except the paper's account DID NOT have have the '...nine guns...', even though they did have the first sentence of that sentence, '...conducting its own investigation.'

"A virtual Universe"; a short video not to be missed.

Apologies to n2doc if he has already has an OP on the above topic;

This video is the formal and narrated video showing what the Big Bang looks like from a 12 million years after the event (if there was such one as new theories are postulating) to present day.

They used a 350 million light years across "large enough to be representative of the universe but detailed enough to show great detail" than previous attempts.

The video shows both "the light matter we can see and the dark matter we can't".

The biggest problem was how to produce many differently shaped galaxies for the 40,000 ones depicted.

From the website of the makers of the video, which is pretty much 'a making of...;

"The Illustris project is a large cosmological simulation of galaxy formation, completed in late 2013, using a state of the art numerical code and a comprehensive physical model. Building on several years of effort by members of the collaboration, the Illustris simulation represents an unprecedented combination of high resolution, total volume, and physical fidelity. The About page contains detailed descriptions of the project, for both the general public and researchers in the field.

On this website we present the scientific motivation behind the project, a list of the collaboration members, key results and references, movies and images created from the simulation data, information on upcoming public data access, and tools for interactive data exploration. The short video below is a compilation made from some of the movies available on the Media page."


I have to say this made my day, well, sort of, but it was a welcome respite after doing yard work all day.
