Possible Loophole In Jessica's Law


California Sex Offenders Declare Themselves Homeless to Get Around Jessica's Law

Hundreds of California sex offenders who face tough new restrictions on where they can live are declaring themselves homeless — truthfully or not — and that's making it difficult for the state to track them.

Jessica's Law, approved by 70 percent of California voters a year ago, bars registered sex offenders from living within 2,000 feet of a school or park where children gather. That leaves few places where offenders can live legally.

Some who have had trouble finding a place to live are avoiding re-arrest by reporting — falsely, in some cases — that they are homeless.

Experts say it is hard to monitor sex offenders when they lie about their address or are living day-to-day in cheap hotels, homeless shelters or on the street. It also means they may not be getting the treatment they need.

"We could potentially be making the world more dangerous rather than less dangerous," said therapist Gerry Blasingame, past chairman of the California Coalition on Sexual Offending.

Similar laws in Iowa and Florida have driven offenders underground or onto the streets.

"They drop off the registry because they don't want to admit living in a prohibited zone," said Corwin Ritchie, executive director of the association of Iowa prosecutors.

The organization tried unsuccessfully in the past two years to persuade lawmakers to repeal the state's 2,000-foot residency restriction.

"Most legislators know in their hearts that the law is no good and a waste of time, but they're afraid of the politics of it," Ritchie said.

The problem is worsening in Florida as about 100 local ordinances add restrictions to the state's 1,000-foot rule, said Florida Corrections Department spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger. Sixteen homeless offenders are now living under a Miami bridge, while another took to sleeping on a bench outside a probation office.

"As society has imposed restrictions, it becomes almost impossible for them to find places to live," Plessinger said.

Twenty-two states have distance restrictions varying from 500 feet to 2,000 feet, according to California researchers. But most impose the offender-free zones only around schools, and several apply only to child molesters, not all sex offenders.

California's law requires parolees to live in the county of their last legal residence. But in San Francisco, for example, all homes are within 2,000 feet of a school or park.

"The state is requiring parolees to find eligible housing in San Francisco, knowing full well there isn't any," said Mike Jimenez, president of the California parole officers union. "It will be impossible for parole agents to enforce Jessica's Law in certain areas, and encouraging `transient' living arrangements just allows sex offenders to avoid it altogether."

State figures show a 27 percent increase in homelessness among California's 67,000 registered sex offenders since the law took effect in November 2006. Since August, the number of offenders with no permanent address rose by 560 to 2,622.

"This is a huge surge," said Deputy Attorney General Janet Neeley, whose office maintains the database. "Any law enforcement officer would tell you we would prefer to have offenders at addresses where we can locate them."

Offenders who declare themselves homeless must tell their parole officer each day where they spent the previous night.

Those who declare themselves homeless are still legally bound by the 2,000-foot rule; they cannot stay under a bridge near where children gather, for example. But it is more difficult for parole officers to keep tabs on them.

Parole officers said some offenders are registering as homeless, then sneaking back to homes that violate the law. That's easy to do because fewer than 30 percent of transient offenders currently wear the Global Positioning System tracking devices required by Jessica's Law.

"If they tell you that they were under the American River bridge, we're going to take that at face value," said Corrections Department spokesman Bill Sessa, referring to a homeless hangout in Sacramento.

During a recent sweep in the Oakland area, parole officers discovered that two of the five offenders they checked weren't living in the temporary shelters they had reported as their new homes. Neither had been issued a GPS device.

Department spokesman Seth Unger said parole agents are starting to make the homeless a priority in issuing the GPS ankle bracelets, which are still being phased in.

R.L., a 42-year-old sex offender who lives near Disneyland in Southern California, said he registered as homeless after his parole agent told him two potential homes were too close to schools or parks.

"I finally asked, `Where do you want me to live?' He said, `You have a car, don't you?"' said R.L., who asked that his full not be used because of the stigma surrounding sex offenders.

The law was named for 9-year-old Jessica Lunsford, who was kidnapped, raped and buried alive by a convicted sex offender near her Florida home in 2005.

The author of Jessica's Law, state Sen. George Runner, said "90 percent" of it is working well. But he conceded that some portions need to be fixed.

"When the voters voted for this, they decided that they didn't want a child molester to live across the street from a school," said Runner, a Republican from Lancaster in Los Angeles County's high desert. "If that means that in some areas that needs to be 1,000 feet or 1,500 feet, then I think that we still accomplish what it is the voters wanted."

It was bound to happen. I hope they find a way to seal this potential loophole. I know where they can live:


Douche Of The Month 10.2007

Due to time constraints this month, there were only three candidates for October 2007's Douche Of The Month.

GEORGE W. BUSH was being a douche for this health care debate. That aside, he is alot better than those that ran against him in both elections.

was a douche for giving both cops, and legitimate gun owners a bad name. But he won't be the first, or the last cop who goes that bad.

LA RAZA and their allies are still going on about this mythical country Aztlan. They are both a danger, and a nuisance just due to the fact that there are people HERE that are dumb enough to believe them.

For being a permanent nuisance to Americans of all races (I am not even white), La Raza and their Allies steal (appropriate term) October, 2007's "Douche Of The Month".

Someone's Into Dolls


Man Found Half Naked With Inflatable Doll in Iowa Public Restroom

A man was arrested after a government agent allegedly found him in an office building restroom lying next to an inflatable, anatomically correct doll with his pants down.

Craig S. McCullough, 47, was charged Wednesday with indecent exposure, a misdemeanor.

The criminal complaint against McCullough says he was discovered in the public restroom by an agent for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency, which is one of the federal agencies that rents space in the Hach office building.

McCullough was arrested, and Cedar Rapids police took him to the Linn County jail. His arraignment was scheduled later Friday, police spokeswoman Cristy Hamblin said.

Another agency has an outstanding warrant against McCullough, but the reason for that warrant was not immediately clear, Hamblin said. He was still in jail Friday morning and it wasn't clear if he had an attorney.

McCullough's criminal record includes a 2004 conviction for burglarizing Just For Me bridal boutique. Shortly after the burglary, police officers found McCullough in a nearby alley, carrying a mannequin wearing a bridal dress.

When Elephants Go Bad


Wild Elephants Electrocuted in India After Drinking Rice Beer

Tuesday , October 23, 2007

GAUHATI, India —
Six Asiatic wild elephants were electrocuted as they went berserk after drinking rice beer in India's remote northeast, a wildlife official said Tuesday.

Nearly 40 elephants came to a village on Friday looking for food. Some found beer, which farmers ferment and keep in plastic and tin drums in their huts, said Sunil Kumar, a state wildlife official.

They got drunk, uprooted a utility pole carrying power lines and were electrocuted in Chandan Nukat, a village nearly 150 miles west of Shillong, the capital of Meghalaya state, Kumar said.

"There would have been more casualties had the villagers not chased them away," said Dipu Mark, a local conservationist.

The elephants are known to have a taste for rice beer brewed by tribal communities in India's northeast. Four wild elephants died in similar circumstances in the region three years ago.

India's northeast accounts for the world's largest concentration of wild Asiatic elephants with the states of Assam and Meghalaya alone estimated to have 7,000 of them.

"It's great to have such a huge number of elephants, but the increasing man-elephant conflict following the shrinkage in their habitat due to the growing human population is giving us nightmares," said Pradyut Bordoloi, former Assam Forest and Environment Minister.

Robocop's Comment:

People do shocking things when they are under the influence. So do elephants.

Douche Of The Week 10.23.07

This week's "Douche Of The Week" is a group award.

Illegal Immigration has always been a pet peeve of mine. But this La Raza group intends to take this alot further than just sneaking across the border for employment.

They intend to "take back" the States that were won by the United States during the Mexican War. They are under the false impression that they are native to this continent (no mention of the Spanish blood in their vains as well as Aztec.)

They are either going to expand their numbers within the States in order to influence our politicians to LET this happen, or they will eventually try using force to achieve this.

I see a few problems with their idea. First, I am not too sure the American population will just let them waltz in, and create their own country. Second, the question comes to mind: "Do they intend to shit where they eat?" After all, they did such a great job managing their oil rich country to a point where half their population is trying to get out of their own country to survive. They can't be so confident to think that by some miracle, those states will generate a good life for them on their own. Finally, if the land is to be given to their "rightful owners", this would mean the Apache, Comanche, Souix, ect...NOT THE MEXICANS.

For believing their own bullshit, being the ultimate in racists, not to mention threatening the sovereignty of the United States Of America, and wasting valuable air that can be used by normal people, La Raza, and their allies, rightfully take the "Douche Of The Week" award.

Medal Of Honor

You never see any good news about the War in the general media, so I think it would be nice to share three sad, but inspiring stories to you all:

Lt. Michael Murphy- United States Navy

The first Medal of Honor awarded for combat in Afghanistan will be presented to the family of a Navy SEAL from Long Island, who gave his life to make a radio call for help for his team.

President Bush was to present the nation's highest military honor for valor on Monday to the family of Lt. Michael Murphy of Patchogue, N.Y.

"There's a lot of awards in the military, but when you see a Medal of Honor, you know whatever they went through is pretty horrible. You don't congratulate anyone when you see it," said Marcus Luttrell, the lone member of Murphy's team to survive the firefight with the Taliban.

Murphy, Luttrell and two other SEALs were searching for a terrorist in the Afghan mountains on June 28, 2005, when their mission was compromised after they were spotted by locals, who presumably alerted the Taliban to their presence.

An intense gun battle ensued, with more than 50 anti-coalition fighters swarming around the outnumbered SEALs.

Although wounded, Murphy is credited with risking his own life by moving into the open for a better position to transmit a call for help.

Still under fire, Murphy provided his unit's location and the size of the enemy force. At one point he was shot in the back, causing him to drop the transmitter. Murphy picked it back up, completed the call and continued firing at the enemy who was closing in.

He then returned to his cover position with his men and continued the battle. A U.S. helicopter sent to rescue the men was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade, killing all 16 aboard.

By the end of the two-hour gunfight, Murphy and two of his comrades were also dead. An estimated 35 Taliban were also killed. Luttrell was blown over a ridge and knocked unconscious. He escaped, and was protected by local villagers for several days before he was rescued.

"We look at these guys and say, 'What heroes,"' said Murphy's father, Dan Murphy. "These guys look at themselves and say, 'I'm just doing my job.' That's an understatement, but that's the way they view it, and that was Michael's whole life."

Murphy, who died before his 30th birthday, is the fourth Navy SEAL to earn the award and the first since the Vietnam War. Two Medals of Honor have been awarded posthumously in the Iraq war: to Marine Cpl. Jason Dunham, who was killed in 2004 after covering a grenade with his helmet, and to Army Sgt. 1st Class Paul R. Smith, who was killed in 2003 after holding off Iraqi forces with a machine gun before he was killed at the Baghdad airport.

Murphy's heroics have been widely recognized on Long Island, where he graduated in 1994 from Patchogue-Medford High School.

To his fellow SEALs, he was known as "Murph," but as a child, his parents nicknamed him "The Protector," because of his strong moral compass. After the 2001 terror attacks, that compass eventually led him to Afghanistan, where he wore a patch of the New York City Fire Department on his uniform.

"He took his deployment personally. He was going after, and his team was going after, the men who planned, plotted against and attacked not only the United States, but the city he loved, New York," said his father. "He knew what he was fighting for."

Corporal Jason L. DUNHAM,USMC

WASHINGTON (Jan. 20, 2007) -- The Medal of Honor awarded Jan. 11 at a recent White House ceremony belongs to all service members, according to the parents of the man who earned the honor.

Cpl. Jason L. Dunham of Scio, N.Y., posthumously received America's highest military decoration two years and nine months after succumbing to a mortal brain injury while fighting in Iraq. He served with K Company, 3rd Battalion, 7th Marines, based in Twentynine Palms, Calif.

"We're accepting this honor for Jason, but we're also accepting this in all the servicemen and women's names," said mother Debra Dunham.

"Jason believed that all men on this earth should be free," said father Dan Dunham. "He also believed in his friends."

The Navy Medal of Honor, shared with the Marine Corps, is a bronze medallion hanging from an anchor sewn to a sky-blue ribbon. Presented posthumously, it is encased in oak and glass; otherwise, its bearer would wear it around his neck. But the latest Marine bestowed with the honor was not present in the flesh.

In spirit, on the other hand, Dunham filled every corner of the White House.

"We wish that Jason would have been able to be here so we could watch him," said Deb. "But we know he's watching."

In a lively reunion of sorts, more than 80 Marines from Dunham's unit soaked up their stately surroundings – many with digital cameras.v Lounging about the White House and bedecked in dress blues, the men laughed and cried as a band of brothers, a bond forged in combat, according to Maj. Trent Gibson, who was Dunham's company commander.

Six venerable Medal of Honor recipients attended the ceremony, as well as some of America's highest military and government figures.

Seated among others in the East Room were Vice President Dick Cheney, Secretary of Defense Bob Gates, Sen. John McCain, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Gen. Peter Pace, and Marine Corps Commandant Gen. James Conway.

Before the citation was read, President George W. Bush gave personal praise to Jason: "He had a natural gift for leadership, and a compassion that led him to take others under his wing. The Marine Corps took the best of this young man, and made it better."

Bush said Jason represented the best of young Americans.

The room came to attention as the president took his position beside the mother. The narrator began reciting: "The President of the United States, in the name of the Congress, takes pride in presenting the Medal of Honor posthumously to …"

Hearing her son's name, Deb's body began wrenching slightly, apparently trying to contain her emotions. With a tearful president at her left and Dan at her right, Deb held their hands throughout the citation – or they held hers. Dan and Deb's three children stood behind them.

The citation went on: "By his undaunted courage, intrepid fighting spirit, and unwavering devotion to duty, Cpl. Dunham gallantly gave his life for his country …"

With the citation given, Bush presented the encased medal to the family.

Acknowledging all service members afterward, the father said "Their names are all attached to this medal. They're all courageous. They all have valor. It's something that I want them all to know: They're part of this medal. It's as much theirs as it is Jason's."

Wall Street Journal reporter Michael M. Phillips, who covered the war in Iraq alongside Dunham's unit, also attended the ceremony. Phillips first introduced Dunham's story to a mass audience with a front-page article published May 25, 2004. He later wrote the unabridged story in "The Gift of Valor; A War Story," which narrates Jason's life and death, from growing up in Scio, to giving his life in service to country, to an eight-day journey home battling his wounds.

On April 14, 2004, in Iraq near the Syrian border, the corporal used his helmet and his body to smother an exploding Mills Bomb let loose by a raging insurgent whom Dunham and two other Marines tried to subdue.

The explosion dazed and wounded Lance Cpl. William Hampton and Pfc. Kelly Miller. The insurgent stood up after the blast and was immediately killed by Marine small-arms fire.

After the grenade exploded under Dunham's helmet, he lay face down with a few tiny pieces of shrapnel lodged in his head. The hard, molded mesh that was his Kevlar helmet was now scattered yards around into clods and shredded fabric. Dunham never regained consciousness and died eight days later at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., with his mother and father at his bedside. He was 22.

Dunham, buried in Scio, is the second warrior and first Marine to earn the medal since the war in Iraq began. On April 4, 2003, during Operation Iraqi Freedom, Army Sgt. 1st Class Paul R. Smith posthumously earned the medal for organizing a defense that held off a company-sized attack on more than 100 vulnerable coalition soldiers.

In the defense, Smith manned a .50 caliber machine gun in an exposed position until he was mortally wounded.

Before Dunham, the last Marine actions to earn the medal happened May 8, 1970, in Vietnam, according to Marine Corps History Division records. A Medal of Honor citation details Lance Cpl. Miguel Keith's machine-gun charge that inspired a platoon facing nearly overwhelming odds: Wounded, Keith ran into "fire-swept terrain." Wounded again by a grenade, he still attacked, taking out enemies in the forward rush.

Keith fought until mortally wounded; his platoon came out on top despite being heavily outnumbered.

The last Marine to receive the Medal of Honor was Maj. Gen. James L. Day, who distinguished himself as a corporal in the Battle of Okinawa in 1945. On Jan. 20, 1998, more than half a century later, President Bill Clinton presented the medal to Day, who passed away that year.

Sergeant First Class Paul R. Smith- US Army

Sgt. First Class Paul R. Smith, killed nearly two years ago defending his vastly outnumbered Army unit in a fierce battle with elite Iraqi troops for control of Baghdad's airport, will receive the Medal of Honor, the nation's highest military award, administration officials said Tuesday.

No soldier who served in Afghanistan or Iraq after the Sept. 11 attacks has yet received the medal. The last conflict to produce a Medal of Honor recipient was in Mogadishu, Somalia, in 1993; two soldiers were awarded the medal posthumously for actions there, later depicted in the movie "Black Hawk Down."

Sergeant Smith led a defense of a compound next to the airport against a much larger force of Special Republican Guard troops, manning a heavy machine gun, repeatedly firing and reloading three times before he was mortally wounded. Fellow soldiers said his actions killed 20 to 50 Iraqis, allowed wounded American soldiers to be evacuated, and saved an aid station and perhaps 100 lives.

Sergeant Smith's "extraordinary heroism and uncommon valor without regard to his own life in order to save others are in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service," a draft of the medal citation says.

President Bush will present the award to Sergeant Smith's widow and children at a White House ceremony on Monday, the second anniversary of the airport battle and the soldier's death.

The story of Paul Ray Smith is that of an ordinary recruit from Tampa, Fla., who fresh out of high school joined the Army not out of patriotism but for a steady paying job, and who 15 years later, as a battle-hardened platoon sergeant, was hurled into an extraordinary test, for which he paid the ultimate price.

More than one million military men and women have served in Afghanistan or Iraq since 2001. But Sergeant Smith is the only one whose actions earned an award nomination that has reached this point after wending its way through more than 12 levels of military and presidential reviews over the last two years.

Sergeant Smith's commanders submitted several eyewitness accounts, diagrams of the battle scene and other supporting documents to the Army. A year ago, an Army review board sent back the application, requesting more detailed information about the battle, Army officers said on Tuesday.

Military officials said several factors weighed in nominating Sergeant Smith for the medal, including the intensity of the 90-minute firefight on that scorching spring morning; the risk of the enemy attack to some 100 other American soldiers; the ultimate defeat of the Iraqi attack; and Sergeant Smith's death in battle.

Since the medal was created in the Civil War, there have been 3,440 recipients, but only 842 since World War II, when the requirements were tightened. There are 125 living recipients of the award, according to the Congressional Medal of Honor Society in Mount Pleasant, S.C.

Most recipients have been unsung soldiers who acted valiantly in a moment of extraordinary pressure. More celebrated recipients include William F. Cody - Buffalo Bill - for gallantry as a scout; Theodore Roosevelt, for his charge up San Juan Hill in the Spanish-American War; and Second Lt. Audie Murphy, for heroics in World War II.

"The Medal of Honor has great symbolic value," said Richard H. Kohn, a military historian at the University of North Carolina. "For the American public, it says, 'We want to thank you with this very highest award possible.' For the troops, it says, 'This guy represented the best of soldiering that we aspire to.' "

Sergeant Smith, 33, was a combat engineer in the Third Infantry Division that swept up from Kuwait on the march to Baghdad. His unit, B Company of the 11th Engineer Battalion, was attached to Second Battalion, Seventh Infantry, and had seized its part of the Baghdad airport on the evening of April 3, 2003.

The next morning, Sergeant Smith and about 15 other soldiers were building a holding pen for prisoners in a compound on the north side of the highway into the airport, on the battalion's flank, when the compound came under attack by some 100 Iraqi soldiers.

"He told me, 'We're in a world of hurt,' " Staff Sgt. Kevin W. Yetter said in an interview with The New York Times several weeks after the battle. "Yeah, I guess we were in a world of hurt."

According to a draft of the medal citation and the company's soldiers, Sergeant Smith organized the engineers' defense, calling in support from a Bradley fighting vehicle. Under a barrage of mortar fire, rocket-propelled grenades and small-arms fire, he hurled a grenade over the compound's wall and blasted an antitank missile at a guard tower.

Still, Iraqi soldiers held the tower and kept firing into the compound.

"We were pinned down," First Sgt. Tim Campbell told The Providence Journal, which had a reporter traveling with troops at the airport. "They had this planned. They found the lightest defended area and attacked."

A mortar round hit an armored engineering vehicle known as an M-113. Sergeant Yetter was inside it. The blast momentarily blinded him. It also seriously wounded Sgt. Louis D. Berwald, the gunner on top, and another soldier. Sergeant Smith helped evacuate the three to an aid station, which was suddenly imperiled by the mounting attack.

Faced with pulling back to a safer position or holding fast, Sergeant Smith took over Sergeant Berwald's .50-caliber gun, firing and reloading before he was shot in the neck.

"If they'd gotten by, there probably would have been dozens of deaths," Lt. Col. Scott Rutter, the retired commander of the Second Battalion, said in a telephone interview.

Sergeant Smith grew up in Tampa, enlisted in the Army in 1989 and served in the 1991 Persian Gulf war. As a sergeant, he was considered a taskmaster, insisting his troops keep their weapons spotless, Cpl. Daniel Medrano, who served with the sergeant in Bosnia in 2001, told The St. Petersburg Times. Sergeant Smith would push a Q-tip into rifle barrels, looking for dirt, Corporal Medrano said.

Reached at her home in Holiday, Fla., on Tuesday, Sergeant Smith's widow, Birgit, expressed gratitude. "I'm proud and honored that Paul would be recognized by his country in such a meaningful way," she said in a telephone interview. "He loved his country; he loved the Army; and he loved his soldiers."

Robocop's Comment:

Are these the only brave warriors we produced in this war? Hell no. Previously in this blog, I posted a link listing most of the HEROES in this epic struggle our country is involved in. The point of this post is that these three men, even after an honorable death, won the greatest honor the United States can bestow upon them. They exemplify the actions, and mindset of most of our troops. They are true role models for our youth. Sure, the general media will find that single digit percent of defeatists who should not have been given the uniform in the first place. THAT is what they do. Whenever you see some spinless jellyfish in front of a camera disrespecting the REAL veterans of this war, remember the servicemen listed above. Do they do it for God and Country? Do they do it for each other? That is between God and them. They just did it. May they rest in peace. May their comrades emerge VICTORIOUS.

Why Can't I Pick A Hobby...

...That Does Not Piss Someone Off?

That's right. This rant is going to be about hobbies I have tried, and hobbies I am still into that upsets at least one group of people on this diversified planet of ours.

I'll get the big hobby out of the way first. Ever since I was physically capable of doing so, I have been into shooting firearms.


Every Saturday morning, my father and I had the same ritual of going to the range with trunk full of guns and ammo. This occurred since I was about five years old. The Boy Scouts of America got me into organized shooting events. My high school, and college both had a shooting club, and shooting team. I have participated in Winter Rifle League, and IDPA competitions. This was all in the North Eastern United States. Needless to say, there are groups out there who are too numerous to name that think I am a criminal of some sort. A deviant.

When I am not shooting guns, I am collecting them. I collect everything from historical antiques, to modern military type arms. There are groups out there that call my personal gun collection a personal arsenal, waiting to be used for some evil purpose. A former President of the United States went as far as stating that instead of collecting and shooting military type arms, I should just read a good book. So I did...

Bible reading

Yes, this is alittle more than a hobby, but it is something I do alot of, and I enjoy it. This is the spirit of a hobby. Again, there are groups out there that think I am a criminal of some sort. A deviant.

Lead Models

I got into miniature wargaming shortly after my active tour of duty in the military. You use realistic game pieces made of lead, and play them on a miniature terrain model which can take up a large room. Harmless, right? WRONG! The lead models that I worked hard at detailing became a danger to the environment according to the State Of New York. The Department of Health, not the legislature, banned lead models overnight. Yes, there are other materials to make these things, but I could never get the detail I was once used to. Again, there are people who think my enjoyment of these models is criminal. Deviant.

Role Playing Games

No, not Warcraft. I am talking about dice based games like Dungeons and Dragons, where imagination was required to play. I got involved with games like this in college, and this gaming continued through my stint in the military. Harmless, right? Wrong again. There are groups out there who claim this is practicing the occult, and I am criminal for playing such games. A deviant.

SCUBA Diving

I got into SCUBA Diving back in the late 1980's. There are lots of waterways in Upstate New York that deserve an underwater view. I also dove in the Caribbean, and the Red Sea. Beautiful views. Due to the actions of some sport divers that took place before I was even born, there were indeed groups who had a problem with this hobby, stating that I was destroying the environment. I was criminal for enjoying it. A deviant.

Boot Collecting

Everyone here who knows me is aware that I like collecting and polishing boots. To some people who do not know me, this means I am gay. A deviant. Tells this to my wife.


I have two things to conclude about my hobbies, and those groups of people who have a problem with them.

1. To paraphrase George Bush Senior, "There will always be someone, staying awake in the wee hours of the night, worried that someone out there is having fun."

2. People like that are criminal for using up my oxygen. Deviant.

Here is some music, dedicated to them, to loosen up the mood:

I Thought Flag Burning Is Cool


Man cited for burning Mexican flag

It caused some controversy, but it was supposed to. Now, one man is headed to municipal court for burning a Mexican flag in protest in front of the Alamo.

The city is charging 46-year old David Bohmfalk with burning without a permit, even though no one gives permits to burn a flag.

"I was raised to respect my country," Bohmfalk said.

All the rallies and talk of amnesty for undocumented immigrants in May 2006 lit the fires of patriotism for Bohmfalk, he said.

"I just got angry," he said. "I decided I had to do something, make my statement, and that's what I did."

Bohmfalk had his own protest in front of a building known for revolution, where Davy Crockett and James Bowie made a stand. So did Bohmfalk but he used a lighter instead of gunfighter. Park police cited Bohmfalk for illegal burning of rubbish, even it was a Mexican flag he set ablaze.

"Because of what it's made out of, it took a little while to burn it. It took me two minutes, but I got it lit," Bohmfalk

Authorities say his actions left some of the Mexican nationals in the Alamo crowd feeling burned. However, Bohmfalk's attorney, Jason Jakob, says, freedom of speech is Bohmfalk's constitutional right.

"My client felt so strongly, and exercised protest, by burning that flag," Jakob said.

Bohmfalk says while he was detained by police, he was harassed, his life was threatened, and he was even assaulted by some tourists who spit on him. Ironically, all these offenses are punishable by law. Jakob says flag burning is not.

"In America, every day we see people burning the American flag and it's become desensitized," Jakob said. "If we can allow that, we can certainly say that the Mexican flag can be burned."

As a former Texas police chief and military veteran, Bohmfalk says he knows his rights, and is fighting for them.

"Why should a foreign flag get any better protection than the American flag?" he said.

The city has not returned calls for comment. As for Bohmfalk's right to a speedy trial, that's been delayed as well. His trial has been reset three times.

Robocop's Comment:

Typical double standard when it comes to applying the law. Why don't we just give Texas back to Mexico and get it over with. But then again, Texas will get screwed up just like Mexico, and Oklahoma will have to deal with this bullshit.

In The Name Of Peace

I guess making pretend they supported the troops did not work out for them. Now their true colors appear. Yes, that is a representation of an American Soldier. What's next, throwing bags of crap at returning GI's at the airport? Good grief!

How Not To Pick A Victim, Part II


Business owner kills 2 suspected burglars in 3 weeks

A Ledbetter-area business owner fatally shot a suspected burglar Sunday morning – the second time in three weeks that he killed an intruder, Dallas police said.

James Walton, owner of Able Walton Machine & Welding in the 2000 block of Chalk Hill Road in West Dallas, was alerted to the intruder when his motion sensor system activated about 9 a.m. Sunday, police said.

Mr. Walton, who also lives at his business, went downstairs with a shotgun and fired at a man who had broken in. The intruder was later identified by police as Jimmy Gannon of Ferris.

Police said Mr. Walton also noticed another man outside Sunday. Mr. Walton shot and wounded that man. He escaped, but a witness eventually led police to him. The man, whom police did not immediately identify, was questioned by officers Sunday afternoon.

Mr. Gannon, 37, was taken to Methodist Dallas Medical Center, where he died.

Police said Mr. Walton is allowed to protect his property. No charges were filed against him Sunday, though the case will be referred to a grand jury, police said.

"He's got a right to defend his property. What gives a stranger the right to go in and vandalize or burglarize his business?" said Dallas police Sgt. Gene Reyes. "He's within every legal right to do this."

Mr. Walton could not be reached for comment Sunday.

Dallas police Sgt. Andrew Harvey said he doesn't believe anything was stolen from Mr. Walton's business on Sunday.

On Sept. 22, Mr. Walton shot and killed a man he saw climbing through a pried-open window of his business, police said. The intruder was later identified as Raul Laureles. That incident also was referred to a grand jury.

Robocop's Comment:

Ok, these people do watch tv, and have access to newspapers, right? If a scumbag got smoked at this business before, would anyone in their right mind try the same thing at the same place? DUH!

NASCAR Cooties

Apparently, all you race car fans have the cooties.


NASCAR Fans Don't Take Kindly to Immunization Alert

Jeff Gordon's victory at the Bank of America 500 NASCAR race surely fired up fans in Concord, N.C., on Saturday night, just slightly more than the battle in Washington over inoculating congressional staffers attending the big event.

Still, race fans didn't appreciate an advisory by the Democratic head of the Homeland Security Committee telling aides to get a series of immunizations before heading down to investigate health care facilities at the Talladega Super Speedway in Talladega, Ala., and Lowe's Motor Speedway in Concord, N.C.

The recommendation was "probably Washington bureaucracy and prejudice to the South, somewhat," one fan told FOX News.

"Is this going on in other sporting events is my question. Is this happening with the Super Bowl every year?" asked Jonathan Drew of St. Louis, Mo.

"Good to see the people in D.C. are as smart as ever, focused on the right issues," said Tracy Tarbutton of Ashville, N.C.

The battle hit the public consciousness last week after The Washington Times was first to report that congressional aides were advised to get vaccinations against several communicable diseases — including hepatitis, diphtheria, tetanus and influenza — before traveling on a fact-finding mission to the tracks.

Democratic Rep. Bennie Thompson of Mississippi, the chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, said the whole story was blown out of proportion, but Republican Rep. Robin Hayes, who represents the district that is home to Saturday's race, called it an affront to NASCAR fans.

By race time Saturday night, fans who had been complaining about the warnings were more focused on pole position than staph infections, and commentators didn't mention the topic during their play-by-plays. NASCAR officials weren't available Sunday to say whether anyone with a communicable disease reported to Lowe's medical facilities on race day.

But with all the noise, the National Republican Congressional Committee is hoping to make a little more hay from the dispute, issuing a nearly three-minute video that used more than a dozen news reports about the congressional field trip to make fun of the public health scare.

"If anything, it's the NASCAR fans who should get immunized against Washington officials, not the other way around," Rep. Patrick McHenry, R-N.C., is quoted saying at the end of the video.

North Carolina Republican Party Chairwoman Linda Daves added that Democrats are not going to win over any of the prized NASCAR voters with reports like this latest one.

“Democrats should know that there is no preventive measure yet designed to ward off the blue-collar values and patriotism that NASCAR fans represent. If they aren’t careful, they just might catch some of it,” she said.

Douche Of The Week 10.12.07

This week's "Douche Of The Week" will be different. This will be a posthumous award. Tyler Peterson was an off duty police officer when he went on a shooting spree over, get this, a girl. Come on people. A man in uniform can easily replace a void in his love life. He did not have to kill six people over it.

And to top it off, the gun control crowd can't even use him for their cause because according to them, "only cops should be allowed to have guns." Hmmm....

For being a public servant who was responsible for the needless death of six people, disgracing his badge, disregarding his oath to protect the people of his community, and for being a flat out loser, Tyler Peterson is "Douche Of The Week."

Congrats To Alfred Nobel

In 1867, world renowned chemist Alfred Nobel invented dynamite. After his death, nine million dollars was set aside to establish the noble peace prize which is awarded to those who refrain using dynamite.

In 2007, Algore was awarded the Nobel Prize. This honor puts him in the company of humanity's finest people...

I salute Alfred Nobel for being credited with two famous bombs.

Wish Me Luck

I am going for another job within the facility I work called Case Manager. It requires a degree, and at least two years of experience in the Law Enforcement, Corrections, and Security fields. Now I have surpass these requirements, but I lack one thing. The last time I went for the job, I was the most qualified, but lacked certain organs to get it, namely breasts. I hope the promotion board is all female this time.**LOL**

Now if I get this job, what would it mean? Well, almost a normal life for one. Case Managers only have to work every fourth or so weekend. They rarely get stuck with sixteen hour shifts. And, they get to wear normal business cloths.

The deadline to apply was today, and I applied last week, so wish me luck on the board.

Happy Columbus Day

On September 6, 1492, an explorer named Christopher Columbus, along with ninety sailors, departed from the island of La Gomera on three ships. These ships included one carrack named Santa Maria, and two caravels named Nina, and Pinta. They went in search of an alternate route to what was then known as the Far East. This alternate route was going to be used primarily for trade, since more hostile countries had control over the land based trade routes to the Orient, known as the Silk Road. There were no intentions to start a new Crusade, or to exterminate the heathen locality.

One October 12, 1492, at 2:00 AM, land was sighted by a sailor named Rodrigo de Triana. Columbus later named the land, which was an island, San Salvador. Though the Columbus expedition was not the first European expedition to reach the Americas, it did lead to extensive interaction between the peoples of the Old World, and the New World. This eventually led to the establishment of the European Colonies, a group of which evolved into this great country of ours.

In 1792, the first Columbus Day was celebrated in New York City, marking the 300th anniversary of the voyage. In 1892, President Benjamin Harrison called upon the nation to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the voyage. In 1937, Franklin Delano Roosevelt set Columbus Day aside as a Federal Holiday.

Was Christopher Columbus responsible for the "genocide" of native Americans? No. He was an explorer. What was done with his discovery was solely on us. But please remember that some good came from his voyage. It demonstrated human persistence. Others would have picked up after him if he failed to complete his voyage, but his persistence earned him a place in our history. His voyage enabled others who were stuck under the yoke of European tyranny to have a new beginning. His voyage led to the eventual creation of entire nations, including the United States. Yes, native Americans were conquered by the Europeans. The Irish were conquered by the English. The Gauls were conquered by the Romans. The Manchus were conquered by the Chins. The Canaanites were conquered by the Israelites. Lots of people were conquered in human history. Let us get over this.

Let Columbus have his day.

Five Things Meme

Debs tagged me for this meme a while back, and I did not know it.

Five Things You Didn't Know

1. I have an unjustifiable fear for heights, which is funny, considering my history.

2. I currently do not drink, but I used to brew my own beer.

3. The average height of a male in my family is 5'4". I am 5'11".

4. I am the first person from my family to be born in the United States, but the fifth person in my family to serve in the US military.

5. If I could do it all over again, I would be a history teacher.

Down With The Sickness

(Can you feel that?)
(Oh shit)
Ooh ah ah ah ah!
Ooh ah ah ah ah!
Drowning deep in my sea of loathing
Broken your servant I kneel
(Will you give in to me?)
It seems what's left of my human side
Is slowly changing ... in me
(Will you give in to me?)

Looking at my own reflection
When suddenly it changes
Violently it changes
Oh no, There is no turning back now
You've woken up the demon ... in me

Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Open up your hate, and let it flow into me
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
You mother get up
Come on get down with the sickness
You fucker get up
Come on get down with the sickness
Madness is the gift, that has been given to me

I can see inside you, the sickness is rising
Don't try to deny what you feel
(Will you give in to me?)
It seems that all that was good has died
And is decaying in me
(Will you give in to me?)

It seems you're having some trouble
In dealing with these changes
Living with these changes
Oh no, the world is a scary place
Now that you've woken up the demon ... in me

Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Open up your hate, and let it flow into me
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
You mother get up
Come on get down with the sickness

Come on get down with the sickness
Madness is the gift, that has been given to me

And when I dream

Ooh ah ah ah ah!

Open up your hate, and let it flow into me
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
You mother get up
Come on get down with the sickness
You fucker get up
Come on get down with the sickness
Mad-ness has now come over me

1 Out Of 5 Democrats Want Us To Lose The War


Nearly one out of every five Democrats thinks the world will be better off if America loses the war in Iraq, according to the FOX News Opinion Dynamics Poll released Thursday.

The percentage of Democrats (19 percent) who believe that is nearly four times the number of Republicans (5 percent) who gave the same answer. Seven percent of independents said the world would be better off if the U.S. lost the war.

Click here for results of the poll.(pdf)

Overall, 11 percent of Americans think the world would be "better off" if the U.S. lost the war, and 73 percent disagree.

Opinion Dynamics Corp. conducted the national telephone poll of 900 registered voters for FOX News from Sept. 25 to Sept. 26. The poll has a 3-point margin of error.

Praying for Peace

Large majorities of Americans say they have said a prayer for soldiers serving in Iraq and for the war to end, while just over half say they have prayed for President Bush.

Most people — 87 percent — say they have said a prayer for the troops, and another 77 percent have prayed for the war in Iraq to end. A much smaller 54 percent majority of Americans say they have prayed for the president.

Among groups, Democrats (80 percent) and Republicans (76 percent) are about equally likely to say they have prayed for the war to end, and women (80 percent) are only slightly more likely than men (73 percent) to have done so.

Republicans (74 percent) are twice as likely as Democrats (37 percent) to have included the president in their prayers, while just over half (52 percent) of independents have prayed for Bush.

Appealing to a higher authority on behalf of the president does not appear to be influenced by gender, as about as many men (51 percent) as women (56 percent) say they have prayed for Bush.

"It’s interesting to see the parallel between overall voter sentiment toward the president and the relatively reduced likelihood to pray for him," says Ernest Paicopolos, principal of Opinion Dynamics. "It’s also striking to see a more than 30-point gap between prayer for the troops and prayer for the commander-in-chief of those same troops."

In general, more Republicans (64 percent) than Democrats (53 percent) and independents (48 percent) say they pray every day. Southerners (66 percent) are 20 percentage points more likely than those living in the Northeast (46 percent) to pray daily.

Overall, a 56 percent majority of Americans says they pray every day, including 64 percent of women and 47 percent of men.

Another 17 percent say they pray several times a week and 7 percent several times a month. Few Americans — 7 percent — say they never pray.

Ok, disagreeing with the war is one thing. Openly HOPING that we lose?!?!? This is a fucking travesty in the highest order. Those one out of five need to look at every combat veteran they see in the eye, and attempt to tell them this. They might as well give a donation to the Hajis while they are at it. The current congress might even make such a donation tax deductable. I hope to God that this fifth colomn mentality does not become the norm for all the Democrats. I have a few as friends, and I hope they do not subcribe to this idea. What the hell has the left come down to? This makes me sick. This makes me almost ashamed that I fought to give them the right to come up with this bullshit. Sorry to all my Liberal friends, but this slightly struck a nerve.

BTW: This is post number 50. WooHoo!

Douche Of The Week 10.05.07

George W. Bush

WASHINGTON, Oct. 3 (UPI) -- U.S. President George Bush Wednesday vetoed legislation that would have expanded a children's health insurance program by $35 billion over five years.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., vowed to work to override Bush's veto of the State Children's Health Insurance Program, which enjoyed bipartisan congressional support.

"By vetoing a bipartisan bill to renew the successful Children's Health Insurance Program, President Bush is denying healthcare to millions of low-income kids in America," Reid said in a statement. "Congress will fight hard to override President Bush's heartless veto."

Bush made no secret he would veto the bill, saying it was a move toward universal healthcare, which he opposes.

Congress sent the legislation expanding the program to the White House Tuesday. The Senate last week passed the measure 67-29, enough to override a veto. The House approved the legislation 265-159, which is not enough to override a veto.

Ok, you can mis-manage a war, kiss the ass of illegal aliens, and hold hands with corporate America all you want. But now you are messing with our own kids. For that George W. Bush, you are the "Douche Of The Week".

This award does have a runner up. Runner up for Douche Of The Week goes to the US Congress for this insurance debacle. Why? Because making the maximum eligible age 25 does not constitute a "child".

How NOT To Pick A Victim


Dollar Store Guard Kills Two Suspected Robbers

A security guard used an assault rifle to kill two robbery suspects at a Red Bird strip mall late Wednesday, police said.

Police say the guard grabbed his weapon when one of the men pointed a handgun at him.

Sergio Vann, the 19-year-old gun-wielding assailant, died at the scene late Wednesday. Detavias Davis, 17, who was driving the getaway car, died at a hospital.

A third suspect, Brandon Stewart, 18, was being held in the Dallas County Jail on a charge of aggravated robbery.

Police are looking into whether the trio may have been involved in other robberies.

Dedrick Howard, the 20-year-old security guard, declined to comment. His employer did not return a call seeking comment.

The incident happened about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday in the parking lot of a shopping center in the 2200 block of West Red Bird Lane.

Mr. Howard, a licensed security guard, told police that he was on duty, sitting in his vehicle and working on a laptop when he noticed a white Mitsubishi circling the parking lot.

The car parked two spaces away from him, police said. Two men, identified as Mr. Vann and Mr. Stewart, got out and ran toward Mr. Howard's car, police said.

"One kid asked him, 'Do you have change for a $20?' " said police Sgt. Ray Beaudreault, a homicide supervisor. "Of course, he didn't. The other kid pulled a gun and told him to get out of the car."

As Mr. Howard got out of the car, he grabbed an assault rifle from the passenger seat and fired several rounds. Mr. Vann was hit, and Mr. Stewart ran.

The getaway car's driver, identified as Mr. Davis, restarted the car, police said. Thinking the driver might have a weapon, Mr. Howard then shot at the car, striking Mr. Davis, police said.

As Mr. Davis fled, fatally wounded, he lost control of his car and it struck another vehicle, authorities said.

Police think Mr. Vann, who had the gun, tried to fire it at Mr. Howard because police found a round in the gun's chamber and two live rounds on the ground, Sgt. Beaudreault said.

"I think that's probably what saved the security guard's life, because he had time to fire his weapon before Sergio did," Sgt. Beaudreault said. "He didn't know how to operate the weapon."

Sgt. Beaudreault said he believes that, typically, armed security guards carry handguns and not assault rifles. "It's not your standard weapon," he said.

Mr. Howard fired 11 rounds from the assault rifle, police said.

Police say Mr. Stewart was arrested when he returned about 15 minutes later to retrieve his cellphone and jacket from the car. Mr. Stewart told detectives that he and his accomplices planned to rob Mr. Howard of his laptop, a police report said.

"Kids at that age need to be in school, getting a good education," said Sgt. Beaudreault. "Why they're out there robbing a security guard is beyond me. I don't really know what to make of it."

After the shooting, Mr. Vann's mother called and spoke with a detective. She told police that her son worked at Wal-Mart and that Wednesday was his day off.

"She said he was a good kid," Sgt. Beaudreault said.

Sgt. Beaudreault said the deaths of the two suspected robbers will be referred to a grand jury. But it is unlikely that a grand jury will indict Mr. Howard because state law allows a person to use deadly force to prevent being robbed.

State law also does not require that someone retreat before using deadly force to defend themselves in their homes, cars or places of business.
