What the **** is the issue with Tacompton?????
And this morning: http://www.katu.com/news/local/85498962.html
Watch....this is going to be blamed on the law abiding gun owners....Must have been something really bad to piss him off that much.
Every time I see something like this I cringe. My wife teaches special education, and can't understand why it infuriates me that teachers are not allowed to carry any thing for self defense.(not even pepper spray)
one was a home invasion... in Maple valley, 3 gunmen... shot the 27 year old victim 7 times. Kid lived!!! Right in front of a witness... Left her alive.
That's idiotic! I can't believe that she's not allowed to have a can of pepper spray! Astounding.
No kidding. Hoo-frickin-ray for "zero-tolerance weapon policy". :angry:
A big fat can of wasp spray in the desk drawer works every bit as good as pepper spray...:thumbup:
Especially when you put a lit lighter in front of the stream.
However, it *is* a violation of federal regulations to use it in a manner inconsistent with its labeling. (So make sure you keep a dead wasp in a jar that you can stick to the bad guy before the cops get there.)
This type of thing burns my backside so bad. Authorities really need to start cracking down a lot harder on people who violate stalking orders. Picking them up for violating them, slapping them on the wrist, and then letting them go just spurs them on to more serious actions.
When a judge sees fit to issue a stalking order a person who gets caught intentionally violating it should be locked up until they complete a full psych evaluation. I do not care it they have to sit in jail for weeks or even months.
If the system would stop filling cells with people who get caught with a joint in their pocket they would have plenty of room for the truly dangerous people.
I cant agree more, this is a clear cut situation where the system completely failed. How can someone who gets picked up on a stalking violation simply post bail and get right out? They are already messed up in the head, then they get arrested, which probably makes them even more crazy, then post bail and they are let loose with no questions asked!
This is what happens when people rely on police and the system for their well-being. My sister had a guy try to break into her house for 20min while on the phone with 911 and she still has nothing to protect herself.
Stupid people - let them be taken.
I guarantee if this teacher went on the offensive and took this guy on at his own game she'd be alive today. Same thing a Gould Hall at UW with a "stalkee" getting killed on the job. The criminals know everyone is un-armed. Fish in a barrel.....
The courts don't care about protecting people - just getting thier fine money. It's the same with nearly all LEO situations.
Hummm...........not sure about that, those pot smokers are very scary!:laugh:
Newsflash: the jails aren't full of people that had a joint in their pocket.
Newsflash...and reality check. One of the highest rate of incarcerated offenses is multiple drug possession charges. Most often of amount way under any level that would be present if a person was dealing. People caught twice with small amounts of drugs are more likely to do time than people with a half dozen DUI's.
"Approximately one-quarter of those people held in U.S. prisons or jails have been convicted of a drug offense. The United States incarcerates more people for drug offenses than any other country. With an estimated 6.8 million Americans struggling with drug abuse or dependence, the growth of the prison population continues to be driven largely by incarceration for drug offenses."

"A substantial number of drug law violators sentenced to incarceration in Bureau of Prisons custody can be classified as "low-level". Using one set of criteria which limited offenders to no current or prior violence in their records, no involvement in sophisticated criminal activity and no prior commitment, there were 16,316 Federal prisoners who could be considered low-level drug law violators. They constituted 36.1 percent of all drug law offenders in the prison system and 21.2 percent of the total sentenced Federal prison population.
If we further restricted the population to those offenders with zero criminal history points - according to U.S. Sentencing Commission rules, there were 12,727 Federal prisoners who could be considered low-level drug law violators. They constituted 28.2 percent of all drug offenders in the prison system and 16.6 percent of all sentenced prisoners."
