Portrait of a bad shoot

The police have simply got to learn that if they refuse to punish their own when officers cross the line, good cops are going to become reprisal targets. This killer ex-officer's excuse is almost unbelievable:
The recently acquitted cop who killed legal gun owner Philando Castile at a Minnesota traffic stop last summer claimed a whiff of pot made him fear for his life.

Former Officer Jeronimo Yanez told investigators a day after the fatal July 6 shooting that he was “hit with a odor of burning marijuana” after he pulled over Castile, his girlfriend and her then-four-year-old daughter — an alleged smell he used in justifying why he’d put seven bullets in the St. Paul man.

“I thought, I was gonna die and I thought if he’s, if he has the, the guts and the audacity to smoke marijuana in front of the five-year-old girl and risk her lungs and risk her life by giving her secondhand smoke and the front seat passenger doing the same thing then what, what care does he give about me,” Yanez told the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.
So now smelling like a pot smoker is sufficient legal justification for a cop to kill you? It's pretty difficult to generate sympathy for the murderous Black Lives Matter movement, but between the corrupt legal system that magically excuses bad shoots like this and entitled idiots like this now-former police officer digging the hole deeper, that's exactly what they're doing.

Police must be held to a higher standard by the law, not so much to protect the public as to protect the police themselves as well as their standing with the public. A decline in discipline and accountability has never generated increased respect for the members of any organization.

If anybody is interested, Vox interviewed a cop. Look in the left near the top for Nick Novello.

Do I need to notify the sheriff’s office when I move?

Yes, a permit holder is required to notify the issuing sheriff’s office within 30 days of a permanent address change. Failure to do so is a petty misdemeanor.


Must be different in each state. I don't think this is a requirement in Georgia, at least.

Varies by state. In Wisconsin, you need to notify of address changes within 30 days; if you don't, and they find out about it, your license will be suspended until you pay $50.

However, if they find out about it first when you write and tell them you have a new address, there's no penalty or suspension. So if you slip up and don't tell them for 40 days, and they discover this ONLY by you writing to provide the new address, there's no problem.

Of course, this is a high trust state for the most part. Not sure if most states will allow you to renew your driver's license by mail, for example.

It seems odd to me because the CCW is good at least in the entire state. Not just in the county you got it. Here that is.

"All shoots by the Feds are good shoots."

Randy Weaver's dead wife would disagree.

The men, women, and children of the Branch Davidian compound in Waco would also take issue with that statement, but they are charred to a crisp after getting shot at by Fed agents.

Y'know who all the copsuckers should be worshipping? Loggers. Fishermen. Construction workers.

Law Enforcement isn't even in the top 10 most dangerous jobs in the US, much less the world.

If beaners shoot slaves, I'm supposed to GAS?

No, dummy. You're supposed to GAS that if a government employee with a badge shoots YOU and then says he was scared because you kinda fit the description of a criminal and you smelled like pot, the investigators and judges and most of your neighbors (especially the good conservatives) will shrug and say you probably brought it on yourself, because the cops are the Good Guys who put their lives on the blah blah blah.

Ten years of reading the blog "Pro Libertate" gave this reader enough convincing evidence to realize that cops are nothing but armed extortioners - writ large.
They are useless when it really counts. They have no mandate to protect you or your property. In fact, increasingly under the cloak of “officer safety” they are dispensing with this pretense entirely.
During horrific crimes , they have proven themselves to be very adept at showing up, after the fact, to draw chalk lines on the ground. Thats about all they are good for.
Implementing Nationwide CCW reciprocity,eliminating the CIA ( Heroin Import Agency) sealing our borders, deporting heavily , allowing for free association and making segregation legal again..would accomplish more crime reduction than mass policing ever could.

eliminating the CIA ( Heroin Import Agency)

i have no idea if this is actually true or not, but i was told this week that heroin is actually cheaper than pot in the midwest.

and that this is why we're having so much of a problem with heroin addiction now.
