    By the time the cops get to your house, the burglar has already done the damage and is gone.

    You don't want to arm? That's your choice. But cops are not there to "protect." They are there to respond, investigate and report.

    OK, valid point, just thought I'd try.
    And just for kicks, I looked at the violent crime rate there [murders, sexual assaults, etc.]

    Darn it, well at least they can still bust the tokers, lol.

    not entirely true.

    many years ago, we had 2 burglars (brothers) in my house. the neighbors called, and the cops caught the 2 of them in our house. one of them had a bottle of my dad's prescription meds in his pocket which was used as evidence of his being in our house, which lead to an air-tight case against him and his brother

    these fools thought we would be "intimidated" by thier younger brother (who was a look out at the time) breaking our windows and threatening us to not go to trial and to press charges. we told the DA's office and the cops about the intimidation.

    they went to trial and saw that we meant business, and each one (all 3) got 7 years.

    so the cops do respond and catch them, if they are called right away. where some of you live, if the cops do not catch them, ask yourself why, like maybe your neighbors stink..?? or your neighbors do not like you..???



    i did not look up any details about the crime rates in that city/town, as i have no interest in doing so.

    i look at the damages as a "pion" that was pee'd off at getting arrested for committing a crime, and thought he was above the law and didn't deserve to be arrested. i feel for the residents that may eventually pay higher taxes now to cover the higher insurance coverage's.

    The burglars had already broken in and stolen your dad's property before the cops got there. If they were "protecting" your home, the crime would have never happened in the first place. They did exactly what I said: They responded because someone broke into the house, they investigated the break in and caught the guys who did it, then they reported their findings to the DA. It was up to the DA to figure out what to do next.

    To protect means to prevent bad things from happening. To stop it before it occurs. Cops don't do that. They can't. They're not clairvoyant. They cannot predict where a crime will happen, when it will happen or who will do it. They can only respond after the fact. The only exception to this is when they are lucky enough to be where a crime is about to happen and their presence eliminating the opportunity for the criminal to act. How often does that actually happen?

    OK Genn, We get it....You're all outraged and ****!

    And.....Pion looks like a total douchebag too.

    But seeing those cop cars all smashed and the dumb looks on those cops faces while they stood there unable to do anything about it, looking like assholes was beyond "priceless".

    I can't believe a story like this "priceless" could make people so hmmmm.. sensitive. Let it go, we all have our opinion out no sense in beating it in the ground. With that said goodnight got to be on the road at 3am and start my week, hopefully there are no farm tractors blocking any roads off

    i cannot see spending so much money on a cup of coffee.

    Micky D's @ $1.00 is great coffee. we have the "Paul Newman's" gourmet coffee up here in New England Micky D's...

    besides, you only "rent out" that coffee, why pay so much rent, for something that "moves out" so fast...???

    I'm not sure how it is where you are but I have a petro travel mug 36 oz and if you bring your own mug into Starbucks not only do they wash it for you they give you a mug refill for a 1.60. Like I said I like the espresso shot which is .80 more so I pay 2.40 for 36 oz of coffee. Same price no matter what size mug you bring, sometimes I will bring in my thermos on occasion but I dont push it cause they get upset lol. That price US good at any Starbucks on nys thruway.

    Certainly appears to be a deliberate act, committed with malice and forethought.

    A bit of trivia, where did Sum***** come from? The ORIGINAL source.

    If you watch the extras on the DVD Jackie and Burt were standing around and something happened and Burt said Sum*****. Jackie was like, what the F did you just say? Burt said his father always said that.

    If you REALLY want a kick, watch the making of Easy Rider on the DVD. I can't even begin to write some stuff about it. You will be surprised about so so so many things about the making of that movie.

    Drugs? Geeze Glenn, it was only weed. Not like he is some mother stabbin', father rapin', baby burnin' freaked out heroin or meth addict.

    I bet if they took your weed you would be ****ed too.

    I know I would.

    You should exercise your constitutional rights to keep and bear arms.

    Maybe not.

    But it looks like the guy had some fun though!

    Don't you think that is a bit harsh?

    In Communist China, or Socialist Russia maybe, but not in America, the land of the free, the home of the brave.

    This guy was simply exercising his right to freedom of expression. He caused no physical harm to any person. What he did amounts to felony malicious mischief.

    Nothing more.

    Who knows. There likely is more to the story than the news is presenting. You know how the news media is, sensationalism sells.

    He is facing the music.

    And it is asshole, not acehole.

    I bet they have more cop cars than just the ones this dope played Monster Truck Jam with.

    I think so.

    Cancels you out.

    Actually I have seen and heard several news reports that all have differing versions of exactly what happened and how much the bail is.

    I bet the had a laugh too.

    He will have to pass a Whizz Quizz first.

    I don't believe for a split second that marijuana "made" that guy chew the other guy's face off. He didn't eat the flesh, so munchies was not to blame.

    I think he was just a nut case waiting for some trigger to set him off. Sometimes, people do things for absolutely no reason at all...just because it seems to be the thing to do at the time. People have an obsessive need to find some sort of explanation for evil things other people do. You can't explain the inexplicable. We will never know why this guy did it. Because there is no reason why. He just did it. End of story.

    To try to blame marijuana is ridiculous.
