  •  Okay, David, here's one for ya: (7+ / 0-)

    An offshoot (oh, I kill myself with my puns!) of the manhunt for the ex-LAPD cop who posted a Facebook manifesto and had so far killed one cop and injured two others:

    LAPD officers shot the shit out of a truck being driven by two paper carriers: a 71-year-old woman and her 47-year-old daughter - check out the photo with the article - thinking it might be the one driven by the suspect.

    Nevermind that they did NOTHING to ascertain beforehand who was in the truck (it being well known among certain gun-toting defenders of justice that linebacker-sized black men often masquerade as petite elderly Hispanic ladies) or, well, ANYTHING - just opened fire like it was Bonnie and Clyde.

    •  This is why... (0+ / 0-)

      ...we must disarm police -- if it might "save just one life".

      Oh, and requiring training for carrying a firearm is obviously ridiculous as this case shows that it doesn't work.

      •  I see what you did there. (0+ / 0-)

        More to the point, this case illustrates the absolute absurdity that adding more armed people to every threatening situation will make everyone involved safer.

        Nice strawman, though.
