my kind of "compassion"

Everybody who reads this blog already knows that I am a cruel, heartless, cat-killing redneck. Therefore, you should understand why I liked this story.

"He half-tripped, was half-pushed to the floor, Whitby said. "One of the police officers was holding a black automatic pistol in his left hand. They held it down to him and unloaded five shots into him. I saw it. He's dead, five shots, he's dead."

No trial. No endless appeals. No three squares a day. Just a dead motherfucker who deserved what he got. THAT'S what we ought to do to half of those assholes whining in luxurious captivity in GITMO now.

But I'm just a bloodthirsty redneck. Don't listen to me.


its just like in The Untouchables (after Costner shot and killed one of Capones thugs) Sean Connery says (to an obviously distraught Costner) "Would you rather it was you?"

Costner replies "No"

Sean says, "Then go home and sleep well tonight"

BY the way, is there a sexier pig than Sean Connery?

I think not.

I say hoorah for the British police. Thats how you take care of business. Done and done. But they will probably be hung by the lamestream media as trigger happy cops looking for revenge.

My only problem with the UK is that they won't allow their citizens to own handguns anymore.

I agree with Robert Heinlein: " An armed society is a POLITE society."

By the way, I am married to a cop (hard to believe, I know) and he had to use deadly force one Sunday morning (long story, it involved a domestic situation) and he also (on a separate occasion) had to shoot (and kill) a dog who was suffering after being hit by a car. GUESS which one bothered him more?

Posted by: Ruth on July 22, 2005 04:34 PM

Note that those gun deprived British bastards had no idea what kind of guns were being used, just 'big black guns'.

Buncha wimps.

Sounds like they got a little excited. If they actually had their hands on the guy....why murder him? He's a walking gold mine of information.
Maybe they thought he might detonate himself. That would make anyone excited. But if so....five rounds? Just five rounds? What the heck does the pistol hold? Why not shoot to slide lock?
Oh well. Probably had to be there.
Moral: If you are going to attempt to kill civilians and disrupt society with bombs, any bad things that happen to you are purely your own fault.
Brother, doesn't England need CCLs!

Daft? And Smith has groupies? Holy smokes!

Note to Rob: Don't ban my daft butt.....I just want to see more GROUPIE photos. You're holding out!!

Posted by: Robert on July 22, 2005 06:00 PM

Innocent? I think not.

Bane you are obviously completely unaware of anything about Britain as we are very proud that our police don't wear guns on a daily basis and that people don't have guns themselves. This might have something
to do with the fact that we have under 100 firearm murders in a year compared to the US number of 8,700.

Posted by: Dave on July 22, 2005 06:15 PM

Jb you obviously missed the statement the british authorities made. He was not a bomber but he was involved in the whole plot.
"Met Police Commissioner Sir Ian Blair said the shooting was "directly linked" to the ongoing London bombs inquiry."

And that quote is from the BBC, something even you can believe

Get your shit straight before popping off. Maybe try reading other news organizations besides Al-Jazeera

Oh but I guess since a government official made the statement it is a vast british conspiracy.

Posted by: gravdigr on July 22, 2005 06:58 PM

Why stop at half?

If they're unlawful combatants, under the very same Geneva conventions that folks have been howling about we'd have been within our rights to shoot every one of them when captured.

I'm not sure it's the best way to deal with the situation - but I wouldn't lose a lot of sleep if every last one of 'em that wasn't providing useful information was hanged tomorrow.

On London -

From what of I read about the story about the guy shot in London, he was wearing a heavy padded coat on a HOT day (as in: may have concealed explosives) and he ignored police orders to stop while running for a train. If I was *trying* to look like a suicide bomber trying to surround myself with victims before setting off the bomb I couldn't do a better job. Sounds like the cops were doing their best to make sure he couldn't set off a possible bomb. Too bad - sucks to be him. My sympathies are all with the 60 or so people killed by the first round of London bombs.

I'm just pissed the Bobby didn't reload and
fire another round into that fucker!

Posted by: BJK on July 22, 2005 07:53 PM

What facts do you have that he was not involved.

How did you know I was going to Deluth?

Yeah that scent is called justice.

Al-Jazeer reports the same thing Fox does just with a Wahabi slant.

I don't know what Rove has to do with what the British do, but hey, I didn't expect you to stay on topic.

And lastly your right we will never run out of bad guys to wage war on.... if the wahabi sect of Islam is not stamped out like a bug.

Last I checked Congress voted to go to war.

Lastly I believe in the United States not the U.S. govenment.


Posted by: gravdigr on July 22, 2005 08:26 PM

JB... You are an idiot. That is all I'm going to say!

Posted by: Bob on July 22, 2005 09:22 PM

At least JB is spending his time flapping gums here instead of materially supporting the terrorist pals of his at Gitmo.

Posted by: Cappy on July 22, 2005 09:54 PM

JB is on a real roll, isn't he? I'm still delighted that the cops shot the fucker.

Posted by: Acidman on July 22, 2005 10:07 PM

A trolling we will go A trolling we will go high ho the merry oh a trolling we will go.

Posted by: gravdigr on July 22, 2005 10:30 PM

Yes Jb I believe in THE UNITED STATES not the U.S. government. The govenment owns shit I have until they TAKE it from me. I don't see the complication.

Again the wahabi sect of Islam started this war. A long time before 9/11.

Posted by: gravdigr on July 22, 2005 10:48 PM

Yeah bj, I'm 15 years old.

I know what the "government is supposed to be" and it is a damn far cry from what it is now!

Go pound sand!

Posted by: gravdigr on July 22, 2005 11:38 PM

The investigation ain't over, and as always the cops aren't telling everything yet-but after the past 15 days I agree this wannabe was asking to be shot, and I hope the poster above was right in assuming that jb isn't giving money to the bombing bastards.
I do actually agree with jb that Smith doesn't owe him anything. However, jb should be sending a damn monthly cheque to cover all the bandwidth he consumes. A-man, you're a more patient man than I am. I'd have long since declared jb's ass Un-Constitutional!

Posted by: Stu on July 23, 2005 12:17 AM

I'm glad they shot the f**ker too - I had to go to the RCJ yesterday and it was difficult enough to get there without more sodding bombs going off. Was a bit disconcerting to hear news like that before getting on a train though.
And btw, the banning of guns over here has done nothing to stop crime and murder.

Posted by: Misty on July 23, 2005 02:37 AM

Here are my thoughts on this: We, as non-muslims, have a VERY hard time reading muslim culture. There is a lot of ignorance and prejudice. In times of great stress, as in london, these prejudices are what drive us. Yes, it sucks, but it is the way of the world.

Here is a solution: Unfuck yourselves. Yes, YOU, the muslim community, can stop this in 2 seconds. IDENTIFY THE CRIMINALS WITHIN YOUR GROUP. We suck at it, so YOU have to do it. Until it is done, innocent people will be caught, killed, and otherwise mistreated. Not right, but it's the BEST we can do.

Pretty please... don't let the terrorists blend in. Single them out... otherwise you are the same as them. Well, the same as them as long as the bullets are concerned.

Posted by: Yogimus on July 23, 2005 02:45 AM

Shit Shiy Shit.

I will be the first to admit I was wrong.

The brits are now reporting that they shot the wrong guy.

jb you were right about 1 thing last night and I stress 1!

Posted by: gravdigr on July 23, 2005 01:13 PM

The British authorities today:

"Uh, whoops. Regretable and all . . ."

I guess the poor dead bastard they wrongfully shot full of holes would take some solace, were he alive, in knowing that he was only collateral damage.

Think there might be a manslaughter conviction coming out of this? Nah--government always gives itself a pass when it kills citizens. SOS.

BTW--Stu--if would help it you had a clue regarding the Constitution before you declare anything. And to the rest of you--go read your words of yesterday as you cheered on the brutal killing of an innocent man.

Pretty sick shit y'all wrote. Your excuses will probably be as interesting as those of the British authorities.

Posted by: jb on July 23, 2005 01:25 PM

Yeah, Chablis . . .

Shit happens--what a perfectly rational explanation for all the hyper-know-nothing-emotionalism all of you were spouting last night.

But you keep trying to somehow to get at me for it all--

BTW--had my ass on the line plenty in the past. So why not park your ignorance and give it a rest for a bit.
