Q:Is the wind howling there like its howling here?
No; it howls here not in the sorrowful but starched and strong New England way you hear in your Victorian home, but in the abandoned, angry holler of a city with millions of faces and no names.
SO WAIT, LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT: A 26 YEAR OLD WITH A GUN FOLLOWS A COMPLETELY UNARMED 17 YEAR OLD FOR A FEW BLOCKS, CALLS THE COPS TO REPORT A “SUSPICIOUS” PERSON IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND THEN GETS OUT OF HIS CAR AND SHOOTS HIM, AGAINST POLICE ORDERS, WITH NO WITNESSES, AND HE ISN’T ARRESTED BECAUSE HE CLAIMS SELF DEFENSE?
YEP, THE GUY HAD A NOSEBLEED. SO, YOU KNOW … IT’S ENTIRELY PLAUSIBLE THE KID HIT HIM.
DIDN’T SHANE JUST GIVE HIMSELF A NOSEBLEED ON THE WALKING DEAD LAST NIGHT TO MAKE IT LOOK LIKE HE’D BEEN ATTACKED? ISN’T THAT LIKE … A SHITTY CLICHÉ AT THIS POINT?
MAYBE THEY DON’T HAVE DISAPPOINTING ZOMBIE SOAP OPERAS IN FLORIDA.
OKAY, BUT EVEN IF THE 17 YEAR OLD PUNCHED THE GUY, WHICH IS KIND OF UNDERSTANDABLE IF YOU’RE BEING STALKED BY A STRANGER IN A SLOW MOVING VEHICLE WHO GETS OUT AND ACCOSTS YOU, AN UNARMED KID ISN’T ACTUALLY “LIFE THREATENING” TO A GROWN MAN. I MEAN, YOU MIGHT GET YOUR EYE DOTTED, BUT YOU’RE NOT ACTUALLY GOING TO DIE, SO USING LETHAL FORCE IS STILL USING TOO MUCH FORCE, EVEN IF YOU WERE A POLICE OFFICER AND NOT JUST SOME FAT DICKHEAD RACIST PIECE OF SHIT WITH A CONCEALED WEAPONS PERMIT, RIGHT?
THAT’S WHY WE DON’T LIVE IN FLORIDA, CARL. WELL, THAT AND THE WHOLE ELECTION FRAUD THING.
AND THE HUMIDITY.
AND THE HUMIDITY.
I wonder how much the “hackers” currently getting all the PR for being so against the copyright-enforcing MAN, man charge for their services when they’re being all professional-like.
Wake me when a different set of “punks” take over, please.
“If a bunch of TeaBaggers settled into a park somewhere to protest Kenyan Muslim Socialism then things would be playing out a bit differently. Brooks and Gerson would be writing regular tributes to these heroic Americans who represent the best of us.
“And, no, the cops would not have gone in and started bashing heads.”
I’m a lady, ya greasy bastard.
