Fatwa Arbuckle: Unperson

Tuesday greetings from Happy Larryville…where the local SWAT team has been called to deal with a knifeman barricaded in a McDonalds’ turlet with no hostages:

Asinine.

“Members of the SWAT team are developing a plan to get him to peacefully surrender,” Rundles said.

“We ordered you two Egg McMuffins with bacon and sausage plus a large Iced Caramel Macchiato and some hash browns. C’mon, man…”

Perhaps it’s my general disdain for cops but, given the circumstances, I think mobilizing the SWAT team is a bit of an overreaction.

Hopefully the barricaded guy doesn’t have a dog with him. We all know what happens with SWAT-type guys and dogs.

Hi, Fatwa.

Good news, Paddy, for Gandalf. Today should be the day he loses his head accessory, eh?

Hai, Sven!

Good point about puppies and cops.

At least our knifeman crisis -- which paralyzed the entire community -- has ended:

As a standoff at a Gwinnett County McDonald’s approached its fourth hour, authorities deployed gas to get the barricaded man to surrender.

The plan worked and the suspect was taken into custody on charges of terroristic threats and criminal trespass, Gwinnett police said.

And, no doubt, the local costumed goonyun revenue agents will get their hefty SWAT differential for masquerading as brave militarized sheepdogs, scarfing down some sausage biscuits and going home safe. Yay!

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

Spring Break is over and it’s back to work for Paddy. I finally got my taxes finished last night and scheduled my tax payments.

We’ll remove Gandalf’s cone tomorrow morning. Tomorrow I have a consultation with a veterinary oncologist -- the biopsy came back as cancer and it has entered the blood stream. At 15 years old, we don’t want to put forth extreme measures, but would like to know the prognosis.

Fatwa -- the report of the police deploying gas in a MacDonald’s restroom made me snigger. Good thing it wasn’t Taco Bell or the police would have been “out-gunned”.

Hey, Paddy!

Sorry to read about Gandalf’s cancer.

Fatwa — the report of the police deploying gas in a MacDonald’s restroom made me snigger.

Same here. And since he had a knife, he could have “cut one”.

And in other popo-related news, in NJ: “You’re under arrest for the odor of marijuana.”

And when NJ Storm State Troopers search your vehicle and find no weed, they’ll handcuff and sodomize you at the side of the road. And still find nothing.

Since there’s video at the link, there’s no question this happened. AFAIC, these fucking POS rapists in uniform ought to be given the Abner Louima treatment and then summarily head-shot. Along with everyone up the LE “food chain” from them.

Addendum: Ooh, lookie…they wear Nazi-esque uniforms, too:

WTF? At the end of the article it says something about if you’d like to peacefully protest. Fuck that.
