Another victim of police idiocy / brutality / lawlessness and the Drug Jihad

To Protect and Serve

David Hooks had reason to be a little nervous. Someone had taken items from a pickup at his Dublin, Georgia, home and stolen an SUV from him the night before. So when his wife reported seeing armed men in camouflage in their yard around 10 p.m., he grabbed a shotgun. Minutes later, the men kicked in their back door and shot Hooks dead. The armed intruders turned out to be Laurens County sheriff’s deputies. They’d found Hooks’ SUV earlier in the day and arrested Rodney Garrett. Garrett admitted stealing the SUV but claimed the meth they found on him was not his but had been stolen from Hooks’ truck. Based solely on that, they got a warrant to search Hooks’ house. They searched the home for 44 hours and found no drugs.

And so they take a thief’s word as gospel truth.

Evil and stupid bastards.

Now an innocent man is dead.

Uh Oh, SpaghettiO

Unreal.

The Hall County, Georgia, district attorney’s office has dropped a possession of meth charge against Ashley Gabrielle Huff. A Gainesville police officer had stopped an SUV that Huff was a passenger in for  a tag light violation. The officer obtained permission to search the vehicle and found a spoon that had some sort of residue on it. A field test indicated it was meth, but the lab results later showed no controlled substances on the spoon. Huff says the residue was from SpaghettiOs.

Bad Assignment

Indeed.

Ramsey McDonald got what he thought was a fun assignment from his fourth-grade teacher: Bring some of your favorite toys to school and talk about them. Among the toys be brought to Miller Elementary School in Warner Robins, Georgia, was a Nerf gun. Yeah, you guessed what happened. He was given a three-day suspension, which was later reduced to a two-day in-school suspension, for bringing a weapon to school.

Homeschool / private school / church school your kids!

The Chemistry Joke That Got a Student Suspended

Administrators were not pleased once they figured it out.” (Those who can’t teach, administrate.)

Paris Gray, upstanding vice president of her about-to-graduate high-school class in Jonesboro, Georgia, was suspended last Friday when administrators figured out what her yearbook quote meant. It read:

When the going gets tough, just remember to Barium, Carbon, Potassium, Thorium, Astatine, Arsenic, Sulfur, Uranium, Phosphorus.

So, when the going gets tough, just remember to [Ba][C][K] [Th][At] [As][S] [U][P].

“Basically, it was me just saying start all over again,” Gray told Carl Willis of the local news station WSB-TV last night. Gray was a toddler when Juvenile’s song “Back That Azz Up” spent a summer dominating the Billboard Hot Rap Singles chart and capsizing a lexicon. Whatever wisdom might be drawn from that song is at odds with Gray’s sunny interpretation of the phrase: “You have to go back and start all over.”

Administrators barred Gray from participating in a senior walk on Friday, Willis reported. She was also supposed to speak at the upcoming graduation ceremony, but Gray said an assistant principal told her that was off.

Reporting from the parking lot of Mundy’s Mill High School last night, Willis said Gray is “a good kid by all accounts,” a member of Students Against Drunk Driving, a leader and student-athlete. Gray’s mother, Zarinah Woods, said, “My first reaction was, you are such a nerd.”

I’ll say! But the admins are dweebs.

Make a law, punish citizens instead of state agents for breaking it…

Anarcho-tyranny, indeed…

Last year, federal and North Carolina and Georgia state wildlife law enforcement announced the results of Operation Something Bruin, a joint investigation that resulted in bear-poaching charges against 80 people. But an investigation by an Atlanta TV station found that charges against many of those people have since been dropped for lack of evidence and others were allowed to plead guilty to misdemeanor charges such as driving on a closed forestry road. In fact, the investigation found that law enforcement officers, not the alleged poachers, killed many of the bears.
