quote of the day
"We shoot each other over here. It is far more civilized."--- velociman
That's V-Man contemplating a trip to Africa, where he wishes to avoid being hacked to death with a machete. (Can't say I disagree with him...)
Which brings me, in a roundabout way, to an article in today's Savannah Morning News. I refuse to link to the story, because the SMN, in its brilliance, requires registration to read its web page and I don't believe in that bullshit. Just who the hell do they think they are anyway? Some kind of big shot publication that screens the riff-raff from their lofty page?
I don't demand that THEY register to read MY web page, so piss on 'em if they can't show me the same courtesy, the arrogant bastids. (If you want to read the story, go to www.savannahnow.com and see page 3C. AFTER you register...)
But I digress. It seems that a fine, upstanding member of the Coastal Empire community was arrested by police yesterday after he tried to run down two officers with his car during a high-speed chase across three counties. Rahmine (did his mama name him after Chinese noodles???) Karon Ashley survived several gunshot wounds he suffered earlier in a Waffle House parking lot before the chase.
After his arrest, Rahmine refused to give a description of his assailant. Obviously, Rahmine has a strong sense of honor, despite being a total scumbag.
Here's my favorite part:
Jail records show that Ashley has been arrested 24 times since 1998.
I am an English Major--- I don't do math--- but even I can figure that Choirboy Rahmine averaged THREE ARRESTS PER YEAR during that period. WTF??? If he had been a drunk driver, he would be rotting behind bars right now, so deep under the jail that he needed a sunshine pump to see the light of day. But he was prowling the streets, free as a bird, getting shot and leading police on a high-speed car chase instead.
I suppose that habitual violator laws don't apply to sober vermin.
The guy who shot Rahmine should have carried a bigger gun or had better aim. Or used a machete...
