Instant Karma #2. Thug tased while trying to draw gun from waistband shoots himself.

This one makes me smile.

Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) Police in Oakland, California approached this mouth-breather because he was smoking in a prohibited area. He started to get squirrely with them, gave them a fake name and threatened to jump in front of a train. When they went to detain him, he reached for something in his waistband. The officers stepped back and deployed at least one Taser, only to hear a shot ring out. Turns out that the knucklehead was drawing a gun tucked into that waistband and the taser shock made his hands clench as he gripped the pistol. Result: a nice gunshot wound to his own stomach.

Oakland BART Shooting: Man in Critical Condition, Expected to Survive

And of course, this being Oakland, the Usual Suspects congregating nearby immediately jumped on the internet and started rumors to the effect that the police just shot another unarmed black guy. Personally, I'm getting pretty tired of the constant parade of assorted mutts and scumbags going around bashing the cops every time they take police action against a black guy or even some buck-toothed Tim McVeigh clone with a gun and a Gadsen flag. Since when did criminals become victims and the police become the villains? That's not how it works in my world, and the day that America goes down that road is the day that I'm done with America. For the record, this blogger and his dogs support Law Enforcement 100%.

  1. You aren't the only one who is downright sick of this.What the hell is happening to this country? I guess it's been coming all along. Little by little, the Liberals have opened the flood gates for them and now the thugs think they can do whatever they want with no consequences other than the pandering media reporting their BS claims crying Wolf every time now.
    Bring Back Judge Dredd!

  2. Should have let him jump in front of train. And then filed claim against estate for cost of cleaning up blood from train.

  4. Those coppers were lucky. The one in Fox Lake, IL decided to use his taser and ended up murdered.
    And tasers do look like pistols, except for the "they're all orange or yellow" part, so it was, I'm sure, an honest mistake on the part of the totally disinterested bystanders. Nobody would make shit up, would they?

  6. This nonsense is going to go on until there is a major blow up. People are getting sick and tired and at some point they will reach a breaking point and start lashing out in frustration and taking the law into their own hands.

  7. Very nice.


    Believe it or not, I too support Law Enforcement....I just wish that they would get rid of the ones that they KNOW are bad, or drunks, or too aggressive. It is less than 2%, but it makes 'em all look bad 'cause they all wear the uniform.

  8. This "2%" you speak about, had nothing at all to do with this BS claim. But, you can be damn sure that these thugs and their followers are 100% pure dirtbag with zero integrity who'd piss in their own grandmother's cereal just to get a buck. In what profession would you claim that 100% of the employees are all good? Dream world. Give me ANY profession and I will find you 2% of that workforce that are not angels, likely more. This idiotic new standard that tries to justify all this BS war on cops is because there are some bad ones out there is immature and just an infantile excuse. People are people and there are going to be bad apples in any group. Anyone who is stupid enough to judge all of one group for the misdeeds of a few, is ignorant. Apparently today, there is some huge difference between Bigotry/Prejudice and "Racism" but, it depends on who commits the act. One is A- OK, but the other is just all kinds of wrong. Give us all a frikkin break.

  9. In NO WAY do I support this "war on cops" thing. If the cops asked me too, I'd stand guard while they ate and gassed up in public. Gladly. For free.

    I never said that cops should be 100% pure as the wind driven snow.....But I did say that they should police their own ranks if they want respect as good cops. But they keep on with that blue wall shit that makes every cop look bad. Any cop knows who is the dirtbag in his department (and most departments have one or two, sadly) yet the good Ivory Soap kind of cops (99.4% pure) don't clean their own house.....so one bad cop makes everyone who wears the same uniform look bad.

    Some departments are mostly really bad.... Most of them are mostly really good....full of good cops doing a shitty job to the best of their ability.

    1. I have to ask where you get this "Blue Wall" stuff, because that's pretty much an urban myth spread by those who have never done policework, IMHO. The reality is that few good cops are willing to go down with bad ones and often the first reports of misconduct by a bad cop come from his peers. And most every department wants bad officers gone, be they those who are criminal or just those who are inept or lazy. But in these times, it's hard to remove most any employee from a job, particularly government and/or unionized employees. It can be done and it is done, but it takes time and work. But the claim that "everyone" knows who that bad apples are and covers up for them is as unsubstantiated as it is ridiculous. Maybe fifty years ago, but not these days. When you hear that stuff, just chalk it up to sour grapes from the "could never be a cop" crowd.

  10. That may be true that most departments have one or two, or even three or four bad cops. I will give you that. Many jobs do. But, I am going to wholeheartedly disagree with the premise that One Bad cop makes everyone who wears the same uniform look bad. Intelligent people don't think that way. Ignorant thugs and wannabe thug groupies think that way and spread their ignorant venom and this is where we end up. Can I extrapolate that kind of thinking to all kinds of things and that's fair? Or do we just vilify this one profession and decide that They must be held accountable for the actions of everyone who "dresses like them" no thanks to our biased media?

    People who make those kind of assumptions do so because they are looking for a reason to believe it to justify their heinous actions. Any reasonable person can see how flawed such logic is and why these thugs now get away with murder, literally. We justify their idiocy instead of condemning it.
