About Me

Just a poor liberal lesbian living in the deep south. Don't expect me to be nice just because I am a liberal. I am kind of bitchy with an attitude problem.

Irving police chief admits: Cops knew Ahmed Mohamed didn’t have a bomb when they arrested him

Source: Raw Story

Irving Police Chief Larry Boyd refused to say on Thursday that his officers erred in arresting 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed on Monday even though they allegedly knew he did not bring a bomb to his high school.

MSNBC host Chris Hayes gave Boyd the opportunity to admit to a mistake, while conceding that people understood that officers need to be on high alert regarding possible attacks against a school.

However, Hayes said, “I think it’s hard for folks watching this from the outside, seeing this all link up, seeing this kid — who seems like a tremendously poised, bright, genuine kid — be put through this. To not hear from anyone in officialdom down there that ‘Yeah, we didn’t get this one right.'”

“The officers made the decision they did with the information they had with what they thought was right at the time,” Boyd responded. “We are clearly going to review this. We want to always look at ways we can enhance and have a better outcome. There’s a lot of decision points, there’s a lot of alternatives that they have available to them.”

Hats off to this thread here for calling it out before it was known: http://www.democraticunderground.com/10027180415

Mmm, homemade peanut butter cookies.

Notice I use only brown sugar, not white sugar. Makes for a richer cookie.



1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
2 cups packed brown sugar
2 eggs

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda


Cream butter, peanut butter, and sugars together in a bowl; beat in eggs.
In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; stir into butter mixture. Put dough in refrigerator for 1 hour.
Roll dough into 1 inch balls and put on baking sheets. Flatten each ball with a fork, making a crisscross pattern. Bake in a preheated 375 degrees F oven for about 10 minutes or until cookies begin to brown.

Made semi homemade biscuits today.

OMG, they were good. I didn't have any buttermilk, so I got some sour cream and added it to the milk. About 1/2 cup sour cream and 1/2 cup milk. Then I added about 3 cups bisquick. Mixed it up, poured the batter onto my new kitchen island that was coverd with more bisquick. Folded about 10 times. Patted it out, cut them and put them on an ungreased baking sheet. Put them into a 450 degree preheated oven for about 10 minutes. Took them out, brushed with melted butter. Put them back in for 5 minutes. Took them out and brushed them with melted butter again and put them back in for 2 minutes.


They were so light on the inside and crumbly buttery on the outside. Oh, and I always keep my bisquick in the freezer. Lasts longer and makes incredible biscuits!
