American Law Enforcement In All It's Glory


Just moments before he was fatally wounded in an unprovoked attack, a San Diego police officer performed one last act of kindness; he bought a child food while buying his own dinner.

Jeremy Henwood, 36, stopped at the McDonald's in the 3800-block of Fairmount Avenue at 5:24 p.m. on Aug. 6. Surveillance video released Tuesday shows Henwood speaking with the boy and getting their food shortly before leaving the store at 5:27 p.m.

Shortly after 5:30 p.m., Henwood was shot while sitting inside his patrol car at the corner of University Avenue and 45th Street. Henwood had only made it six blocks from the McDonalds; it would be the last place he was seen alive.

Witnesses said a man pulled up on this side of Henwood’s vehicle and shot him with a shotgun in what officials say was an unprovoked attack. Henwood passed away at Scripps Mercy Hospital at 1:42 a.m. on Aug. 7.

With all the awfulness reported in the media, it is important to remember that our officers are for the most part exceptionally wonderful human beings. Their acts of bravery and kindness so rarely are reported. In this case, a white officer buys a black child a meal at McDonalds when the boy couldn't afford one. It likely would never have made news, as good news rarely sells, if not for the fact that the officer was murdered just moments later while stopped at a traffic light.

Are there any active live streams of Ferguson right now?

In Support of Curfew

As well all know, it has long been said that nothing good happens after midnight. This curfew should help restore order and make it easier to distinguish between the RIGHTEOUS PROTESTERS and the opportunistic and VILE looters.

It wouldn't have mattered if Michael Brown was a MURDERER.

It doesn't matter that he just committed a robbery at a convenience store minutes before being shot. The police cannot shoot someone in the back who is running away without that person being an immediate threat to the public. The police cannot shoot someone with their hands in the air, surrendering, even if that person had JUST COMMITTED MURDER!

It seems some posters here think that just because Michael Brown robbed a convenience store means he deserved to be shot down like a dog in the street.

Michael Brown Murder: The Official Police Narrative

Well it looks like it only took a week for the police to come up with their official story. It is pretty simple:

1. Brown robbed a convenience store minutes before the shooting
2. Officer Wilson, on routine patrol, spotted Brown and Johnson jaywalking
3. Unbeknownst to Officer Wilson, Brown had just committed the robbery when he confronted them about the jaywalking
4. Brown viciously batters Officer Wilson because he thought Wilson was going to arrest him for the robbery

That will be the official line from here on out.

Even if Brown did commit robbery...

And even if he did assault the clerk, what's to say he was beating the policeman who shot him? Just the policeman's word?


I'm not running. Vs. I'm not going to run.

Can you spot the difference?

The imaginary victims of victimless crimes

I've noticed some people try to pidgeonhole their pet issues into real issues, by claiming that there are victims of victimless crimes. Like pornography. Or marijuana. Or prostitution.

There are peripheral crimes, surely, such as rapists being inspired by rape porn, people driving while impaired on marijuana, and human trafficking. But those issues are real crimes with real victims, separate from the victimless crimes being discussed.

This is a public service announcement.

Prostitution: Have you ever?

With all the rancorous debate between the puritanical prohibitionists and the steadfast proponents of a woman's right to choose what to do with her own body, I think this makes for a timely poll.

Police Shoot, Kill Pitbull; Sue Owner



The pit bull died from a gunshot. Durante spent several days in UPMC Presbyterian in Oakland.

Philadelphia lawyer Martin Kleinman, who specializes in tort law, said that in many states, Durante's claims would immediately be dismissed based on a law called the “firefighter's rule,” which bars injured public safety officials from filing such lawsuits. But in Pennsylvania, which never adopted such a law, courts have taken a “more nuanced approach,” Kleinman said.

“The emergency responder can sue for damages as long as the injury was caused by negligent or intentional conduct that was separate from the conduct that contributed to the emergency,” he said. “In other words, if this cop was responding to a barking dog, he wouldn't be able to sue.”
The lawsuit claims the Holloways had a history of not being able to control their dog. Danielle Holloway was cited six times in the two weeks leading up to the attack for failing to keep the dog confined and for not having a dog license. Hrinda knew the pit bull was at the residence and was aware of its aggressive nature, the lawsuit says.


Pitbull attacks are far too common these days. We need national BSL.
