I’m looking and I’m looking and I’m not seeing a cat in today’s thread pic.

Good morning Fatwa and the rest of the GN horde!

Agreed, Fatwa: police have no duty to protect. The optics though of the last several incidents in California where police are standing by watching as people are attacked are not good. I cannot imagine a scenario where a protected and embraced minority, or a crowd of people attending a political rally for the right side (i.e. the Left), where police would allow assaults to take place in front of them. Or if they did, that the media would be as silent as they have been.

When the police, with yes, no duty to protect, overtly decide who they will and won’t protect, the message sent to the groups that are getting beaten is not good.

Good article, but CA’s response is to go after citizens with new laws:

http://extras.mercurynews.com/policeguns/:

“Their guns have been stolen from behind car seats and glove boxes, swiped from gym bags, dresser drawers and under beds. They have been left on tailgates, car roofs and even atop a toilet paper dispenser in a car dealership’s bathroom. One officer forgot a high-powered assault rifle in the trunk of a taxi.”

G’day, Sven!

It’s unfortunate that too many LEOs are oath-breaking yoonyun goons who flushed Peel’s “Nine Principles of Policing” down the turlet decades ago.

At whatever point there is a reckoning, it’s going to be unpleasant and quite dangerous.

Update: Just read the Mercury News article you linked; criminy.

Happy Monday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!

I’m looking and I’m looking and I’m not seeing a cat in today’s thread pic.

The cat is resting on her right shoulder -- you can just make out its right ear and the bridge of its nose.

So, today I’m going to San Diego to help out at the graduation for the online school I work at. Graduation is at 11 and I have to be there at 9:30 to help set up, which means leaving by 8. I have no idea how long it will last (besides too long), then I have to help clean up, then drive another 1.5-2 hours home. And I have a metric carp-tonne of work to do. Talk about a wasted day!

Hey, Paddy and Mac!

Paddy --

Hope your schlep to SD was both shorter and less onerous than you anticipated.

Mac --

That image is so perfect and so wrong…it’s perfectly wrong.

*Shakes head in awe*

The traffic to and from SD was about what I expected. The graduation was gloriously short. The keynote speaker was someone from Oakley who gave one of the best graduation speeches I have ever heard. He was energetic, talked without notes, away from the podium, his points were relevant, and he spoke to the kids, not at them. The whole ceremony lasted less than an hour.

Quite cool that a good speech was had. And thank you Mac for showing me the cats.

My buddy received his rat f*cking today. Corporations--gotta love ’em. Them and pricks that squirm their way upwards. I won’t forget this.
