What Is Wrong With This Story?

A 90-year-old Greenbrae man who was shot in the head during an alleged burglary has been sued by the alleged burglar.

Samuel Cutrufelli, who was also shot during the incident, claims Jay Leone “negligently shot” him during the confrontation inside Leone’s home.

Cutrufelli, 31, claims Leone caused him “great bodily injury, and other financial damage, including loss of Mr. Cutrufelli’s home, and also the dissolution of Mr. Cutrufelli’s marriage.”

I don’t think so there Sparky.  You want to know what happened, you broke into another man’s house and you were upset that he fought back.  In what world can you claim that a person negligently shot you after you broke down the door into their house?

Negligently would imply that you were struck by a ND.  There is no ND here my friend. Especially since you shot at the home owner as well and then claimed to the police you shot yourself.

You are one lucky man that Mr. Leone’s bullet didn’t send your body to room temperature.

You know, they tell you that you should stop once the person is no longer a threat… About the only way it seems to permanently stop the threat is to make sure their body cools to room temperature.*  Failure to do so leaves you life and financial livelihood in peril.  Especially since there is no such thing as winning a lawsuit.

*Don’t go just plugging him though after the fact if he’s still breathing…  That just lands you in a world of crap.

Quote of the Day–Anonymous(10/25/2012)

We had to have people from the DNR with our firefighters making sure they didn’t dig up some protected grass.  Not only that but other times we have been prevented in fighting fires because of things like frogs that were “protected.”

Anonymous – PHARC Ham Club Meeting

[We listened to one of the local deputy fire chiefs who also happens to be involved with ICS in Spokane.  He was discussing a wild land brush fire where they were prevented from properly fighting the fire because of the status of some grass and a frog in the area.  See they were protected and thus you couldn’t dare disturb them or do anything that might disturb them.  This included trying to head the fire off.  To which I replied:

“So it was better to just let them all burn to death instead of stopping the wild fire and possibly saving a bunch… Our government at work.”

Yeah, that’s about par for the course. –B]

SSCC #440–Chattanooga

The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports (http://bit.ly/XONxx8) Greg Luther claims in the $400,000 suit that he wanted to photograph a car crash that damaged his fence and retaining wall. Officer Brian Blumenberg told him he could not photograph the crime scene.

Officer Blumenberg’s response when the victim asked to speak to his supervisor?

When Luther asked to speak to a supervisor, Blumenberg threw him to the ground, handcuffed him and put him in the back of a patrol car, the suit states.
An internal affairs report states that Blumenberg was concerned that Luther would step on evidence. Blumenberg received a reprimand but it was not determined he used excessive force.

Really?  That wasn’t excessive force?  That wasn’t an unlawful arrest either, especially considering that was damage to his personal property.  Damage that he would need to document himself for insurance purposes.  Who in their right mind trains their officers to deal with the public in such a manner?  Who thinks that using force of any kind in that situation is acceptable?  Oh that’s right, our would be masters.

Because when someone calls the police about damage to their property and politely asks if they can document it, beat the hell out of them.  Doubly so when they decide to challenge your authority by asking for a supervisor within their rights.

Yes Please…

So I avoid paying attention to new video games because frankly it just kills my productivity.  I’ve got ton’s of other stuff to do so playing games while I do it still from time to time just can’t occupy so much time.  So when I saw this trailer over at RNS I started drooling.

My immediate comment was with a speech like that, yes you make me want to get that game.  My coworkers fell over laughing when I made the comment, “Who doesn’t like smacking a Red Coat in the face with a tomahawk?”

So when I saw this today all I could think was AWESOME!

Yes, I  think this is going to be one of the few games I do pick up.  I liked Assassin’s Creed and as I said, I wouldn’t mind  being able to smash a Red Coat in the face.

If you watch carefully.  You can see bullet trace as they’re shooting up on the hill.

Also, yes I have a guest appearance at the end when she’s shooting David’s pistol.

SSCC #435 – NYPD: Update

The Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office announced yesterday that it has dropped charges of assaulting a police officer — and other less-serious offenses — against a Crown Heights man who earlier this month got the crap kicked out of him by a police officer for no apparent reason.

The D.A.’s Office tells the Voice that it’s yet to make a decision about whether to charge the officer.

Thankfully they dropped the charges against the victim.  It is worth noting that most likely it was video of the incident which saved this man’s bacon.  Which is ironic considering the efforts officers will go through to prevent people from recording their interactions with the public.

Now hopefully the DA will step up and do the right thing and charge this corrupt bully with a badge.

Because cops are better than everyone else, didn’t you get that memo!?

But I thought It Had Popular Support!?

Conversely, not even André Carson, holder of an hereditary sinecure in the Bluest district in Indiana south of the Chicago ‘burbs is coming out and saying "and I voted for Obamacare!" in commercials otherwise gloatingly touting his Bolshevist voting record in Congress since he took the seat over from the embalmed corpse of his grandma.

Tam“Instead of the cross,the Albatross / About my neck was hung”

[I find it interesting that Obamacare and many of the negative effects that are screaming up on us quite fast are being ignored and suppressed.  Last night I noticed something very interesting since I hadn’t bothered to connect the dots between this and this.  To save you some reading one links to the fact that taxes will be increasing for 51% of the population come January.  The other links to the fact that people working 40 hour weeks without healthcare will probably all the sudden be working 29 hour weeks.

Think about that, tax burden is increasing, by government regulation, and hours are going to end up being cut because of government regulation.  It’s the low income worker who is really getting the short straw here and it’s not businesses doing the screwing, it’s the government.  Their main lever to do it, Obamacare.  The sad thing is I don’t ever see them actually killing it. –B ]
