    Man charged with first degree murder for shooting an armed home invader.

    I guess we are each entitled to our own opinions. I don't believe for one second he didn't know it was the cops. And I've said it before, but to elaborate, he did not do what I would have done, nor what I believe the law allows (again, my legal evaluation is based on a general Castle Doctrine...

    Man charged with first degree murder for shooting an armed home invader.

    Lots of ranting about lawyers and the propriety of no knock warrants. But I'm still waiting on a single thing the individual officers executing the warrant did wrong. We can philosophize until we're blue in the face on what instances a no knock warrant should be granted. I would probably agree...

    Man charged with first degree murder for shooting an armed home invader.

    A few people seem confused. This was a search warrant, not an arrest warrant. They had a warrant to search his house for evidence of his drug trafficking activity. They couldn't just "arrest him when he left his house". That's not what they were there for. And no knock warrants are common for...

    Man charged with first degree murder for shooting an armed home invader.

    I specifically said the officers executing the warrant did nothing wrong to specifically counter the several comments claiming the officers did wrong and should be fired, etc... Whether or not the judge's decision was right is irrelevant to the officers themselves. They relied in good faith on...

    AAF looks pretty good.

    Kaepernick wanted $20 million to sign. LOLOLOLOL To me that just proves he has no interest in playing, just keeping the price high enough so that no one signs him so he can continue to claim he's being black balled. What a douche canoe. He knows he wasn't good enough to be signed back then and...

    Man charged with first degree murder for shooting an armed home invader.

    I'm seeing a lot of comments about how these officers acted improperly, yet not seeing a single explanation for what these individual officers did wrong. A judge issued a no-knock warrant, likely requested by an officer not on the entry team executing the warrant. They shouted "Police" BEFORE...

    Can We Make Border Security a Public Health Issue Now?

    Just because it's only a small percentage of illegals that do those terrible things doesn't make them any less terrible or any more necessary to deal with them. It's not like the argument is to keep out a bunch of good law abiding citizens in hopes of stopping a small percentage of drug dealers...

    Man charged with first degree murder for shooting an armed home invader.

    I'd have my gun and my family barricaded in a safe location, but you better believe I'm not pulling the trigger before I know what/who I'm shooting at. I'm responsible for every bullet that comes out of my gun. Every home defense gun I have has a light for this very purpose. I teach personal...

    Man charged with first degree murder for shooting an armed home invader.

    For what? Executing a lawful search warrant and getting shot? How does this story at all cause one to hate police? In fact, the fact that he's still alive after opening fire on the entry team is a testament to their discretion. All I can say about the guy who shot, the first rule of gun safety...

    And "universal background checks" won't reduce gun violence one iota. Doesn't stop CDC from advocating for it.

    Can We Make Border Security a Public Health Issue Now?

    Well I'm not one of those people that would say that, so I can't say for sure. My issues with anti-vaxers is more about the macro effects to society as a whole than some fear of having my kid play with an unvaccinated kid who could carry some disease. That being said, if that were my position...

    Can We Make Border Security a Public Health Issue Now?

    Talking about vaccines is an interesting thing. The science on the subject is overwhelming and the risk of harm to people/society is great. So those who understand the evidence have a very important reason to strongly oppose the anti-vaxers, and the anti-vaxers are so entrenched in their...

    Can We Make Border Security a Public Health Issue Now?

    Any time. I call em like I see em. On a topic as significant as increasing the likelihood of widespread disease, I'll gladly weigh in. I'm happy to give leeway on people whose thinking is limited to anecdotal evidence and falsified reports on most subjects. I won't say a thing. But when your...

    Can We Make Border Security a Public Health Issue Now?

    I respect people's rights to do what they want with their body. But once you jeopardize others it's a problem for me. Herd immunity is a real thing. Not only does it protect us as a whole from diseases running rampant (herd immunity even exists in nature without vaccines so it is in fact natures...

    Can We Make Border Security a Public Health Issue Now?

    I couldn't bear to read all of this, but this is an important topic with much misinformation so I thought I'd weigh in. First, I immediately discount anything someone says if they mention autism in a vaccine discussion, because it means they have done very little research from reliable sources...

    Are oral agreements legal in Ga ?

    I just want to point out that typically breach of a contract doesn't render the contract "null and void" as you suggest, it merely creates a cause of action. There is still a chance that even if he breached first you might still have some obligation under the contract (assuming it exists and is...

    -40 wind chill here this morning. I love the cold and even I found that to be frigid. I actually wore gloves and a hat to work today.

    FBI Closes Vegas Shooting Investigation With No Answers

    The reality is that this is quite often the case. I honestly don't smell anything out of the ordinary. They showed how he had become unhappy with government actions, and we will likely never be able to know why it went from that to killing a bunch of people. The videos show him alone carrying in...

    The "This is why I'm ghey" thread

    I see someone recognized my good friend Creed Bratton. ;) But for real participation, does it count that it's been more than 10 years since I've seen a movie in the theaters that wasn't animated.....and my daughter is only 8?

    TSA lines were long this morning

    None of the flights I had pre-9/11 had any security checkpoints to go through. I checked in at the desk, walked right to my gate and the only security was checking my ticket before getting on the plane. We used to be able to walk right up to the gates to see our loved ones off and watch the...
