Knives and Flaming Cats

Saw this: Firefighter attacked by knife-wielding woman; is saved by coat

A Tucson fire captain responding to an apartment fire early Friday morning was attacked by a knife-wielding woman who tried to stab him in the chest, police said.

The firefighter’s turnout, or firefighting coat, served as body armor and kept the knife from penetrating his chest, according to a press release issued by Tucson Fire.

The firefighter wasn’t hurt and was able to get out of the apartment.

But noticed this:

Firefighters were able to see inside and determine the fire was burning on top of a small stove. Officials say the woman had a dead cat on the stove and was burning it.

Burning a dead cat on the stove.

You can’t make this stuff up.

Cleveland Police Union to the US Constitution: DROP DEAD

Cleveland police union asks for suspension of ‘open carry’ in wake of Baton Rouge, ahead of RNC

Cleveland, Ohio (CNN) — The head of Cleveland’s largest police union is calling on Ohio Gov. John Kasich to temporarily restrict the state’s open carry gun laws during this week’s Republican National Convention following Sunday’s shooting in Louisiana that killed three officers and wounded at least three others.

Now, whatever you think of this idea and whether or not additional restrictions around the convention might be in order or if security needs to be stepped up or the National Guard called in or whatever, this bit here should scare the living daylights out of every American:

“I don’t care if it’s constitutional or not at this point,” Stephen Loomis, president of Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association, told CNN.

You lost me there, jackass.

The head of the Cleveland police union doesn’t care whether or not what he wants to do is constitutional. That means that Stephen Loomis, president of Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association needs to be removed from office immediately.

He says those open carrying are going to be targeted for tougher inspections.

“I couldn’t care less if it’s legal or not.”

You known how you get people to hate cops, Mr. Loomis? You know how you get people to think about attacking cops? You know how you make people sympathize with those ambushing cops? By not caring about the Constitution, by not caring what’s legal, and by saying so openly.

Holy shit, Murdoc cannot believe that this idiot is saying this to the media.

Murdocs prediction is that his comments inspaire ten times as many open carriers as would have been there.

Oh, and it’s not those open carrying that he should be worried about.

CRIME SOLVED: Wear ‘Don’t Shoot/Rob/Rape Me’ Bracelets

Sweden

Police Launch ‘Don’t Touch Me’ Wristbands to Stop Migrant Sex Attacks in Sweden

Sweden’s police chief unveiled the force’s latest weapon in the fight against sexual assault: wristbands reading “Don’t touch me”.

The press release announced that police intend to equip young women with wristbands with the slogan “don’t touch me”. This will happen over the summer, at festivals and other events for young people. “By wearing these wristbands,” Sweden’s police chief said, “young women will be able to make a stand”.

And

A Swedish police report released last month noted that the country had the worst rates of sexual violence against women in Europe. The report acknowledged migrants were responsible for the bulk of the problem but the police were accused of making excuses for the perpetrators…

Migrant sex gangs are alleged to have been roaming the Sthlm music festival for 12 to 17-year-olds for the past two summers. One leaked police memo indicated that “unaccompanied youth” migrants, from the Middle East, were responsible for most of the attacks.

Murdoc wonders if a young woman who chooses not to wear one of these anti-touching bracelets is touched, was she asking for it?

If this no-touch bracelet idea came from some advocacy group, it would be laughable. But the fact that it’s coming from the government makes it shameful and illustrates just how little the government can do to protect its citizens.

NBA’s Steve Kerr believes the Bill of Rights is ‘Outdated’

Steve Kerr, head coach of the NBA's Golden State Warriors, thinks that the Bill of Rights is 'outdated.' He also thinks that lots of people own automatic weapons. Steve Kerr is very confused.

Coach Steve Kerr of the NBA’s Golden State Warriors has some opinions on guns and the Bill of Rights:

It’s easier to get a gun than it is a driver’s license. And it’s insane. And as somebody who has had a family member shot and killed, it just devastates me every time I read about this stuff, like what happened in Orlando, and then it’s even more devastating to see the government just cowing to the NRA and going to this totally outdated Bill of Rights, right to bear arms, you know, if you want to own a musket, fine–but come on.

Mr. Kerr also says that people are carrying “these automatic weapons.” So he’s obviously got a lot of things factually wrong.

But the most telling part of his diatribe is his claim that the Bill of Rights is “outdated.” The idea that basic human rights can become “outdated” says an awful lot about Mr. Kerr.

He obviously is not a fan of the 2nd Amendment. I wonder what the reaction would be if an NBA head coach claimed that the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments were outdated. (Just kidding. Murdoc doesn’t wonder.)

Innocent People Placed On ‘Watch List’ To Meet Quota

Marshals Say They Must File One Surveillance Detection Report, Or SDR, Per Month

The air marshals, whose identities are being concealed, told 7NEWS that they’re required to submit at least one report a month. If they don’t, there’s no raise, no bonus, no awards and no special assignments.

“Innocent passengers are being entered into an international intelligence database as suspicious persons, acting in a suspicious manner on an aircraft … and they did nothing wrong,” said one federal air marshal.

These unknowing passengers who are doing nothing wrong are landing in a secret government document called a Surveillance Detection Report, or SDR.

And this bit it particularly relevant at this moment:

What kind of impact would it have for a flying individual to be named in an SDR?

“That could have serious impact … They could be placed on a watch list. They could wind up on databases that identify them as potential terrorists or a threat to an aircraft. It could be very serious,” said Don Strange, a former agent in charge of air marshals in Atlanta. He lost his job attempting to change policies inside the agency. [emphasis Murdoc’s]

Meanwhile, the FBI conducted months of investigations on the Orlando shooter personally but failed to put him on a list, and dimwits in Congress are sitting in to make sure that those on terrorist watch lists can’t buy guns.

Not Odd At All

Black Lives Matter and Michael Bloomberg: the oddest couple?

Meanwhile, the media have treated the budding partnership between the ascendant Black Lives Matter and the perennially frustrated gun control movement as if it were the most natural thing in the world — probably because both efforts lean left. That alliance, however, is truly unlikely, even nonsensical. Historically, civil rights and gun control have been at odds. The blunt fact is that one side seeks to rein in law enforcement, while the other wishes to give it more power.

Murdoc’s made this argument in conversation several times but he always ends up getting treated like a racist.

One part of this alliance claims that police are brutal and out of control and cannot be trusted to the point where civil unrest is the only way to stand up for basic human rights and defense against brutality by those in power. Another part says only the police can be trusted with guns.

It’s almost like they’re not making any sense.

Or maybe they’re both just tools for the same puppet masters.

Meanwhile, everywhere else:

No Lives Matter
