    Sometimes, they catch the BGs in the act...

    I'm not betting my life on it, but sometimes 911 gets them there in time... This was one of those times:

    Interesting that links for mobile phones don't work with the Opera browser that I normally use. I had to copy and paste it into Firefox to get it to open..........

    Hardly any details on the article, but it seems those thieves must have all been moving in slow motion.

    The point is they try their best to get there in time, but until we invent a way to teleport them to the scene we need to be able to defend ourselves and others until they arrive.

    Just watched a video where some stupid driver that was texting killed another driver in a head on. The woman responsible was not hurt. She told officers she was adjusting her kids car seat while doing 60. Yeah, that sounds smart.

    Crap like this makes me so mad only swear words get the job done. Cut off one of her hands. That way she'll remember every day what her thoughtlessness cost someone else.

    Problem is that most people are in a hurry these days. We're lucky that more incidents like this doesn't happen.

    Seems like it was intended to be a burglary. Probably the lookout fell asleep.

The character inherent in the American people has done all that has been accomplished; and it would have done somewhat more, if the government had not sometimes got in its way."
