Dogs becoming thugs’ ‘weapon of choice’

This is so sad....This what causes the stupidity known as BSL (Breed specific legislation) Thousands of innocent “pit bull type dogs” have already been murdered because people are too stupid to treat animals correctly. I wonder what breed will be next....

Dogs have become a “weapon of choice” for a rising number of young thugs, senior police officers have been told.

Deputy chairman of the Metropolitan Police Authority (MPA) Cindy Butts claimed she believed there had been a significant increase in youngsters using the animals as weapons or to instil fear.

Her move follows an incident earlier this month in which a 39-year-old was attacked after he asked two dog walkers to control their animals in a well-to-do west London suburb.

Speaking at the MPA’s meeting in London, she said: “I am aware, anecdotally, that increasingly dogs are being used by young people, young men in particular, as either weapons of choice or to instil fear and intimidation.

“I wondered whether any analysis had been done across London to the use of dogs by young people either to commit crime or to instil fear.

“I have certainly noticed a significant increase, particularly of young people carrying some quite potentially dangerous dogs.”

The Metropolitan Police commissioner said it was a “very important issue” for public and officer safety which would be investigated.

One man was arrested and bailed in the wake of the attack on the 39-year-old in west London. The victim was walking home when he saw the men and their dogs, which began biting his ankles.

He shouted at the men to put the Great Dane and a Staffordshire terrier on the lead, and they then followed him into nearby Kinnear Road, where they set the animals on him.

One also produced a meat cleaver and began hacking at him with it, inflicting deep head wounds.

Thanks GOD, but no thanks.

I love my current home state until the vacationers come here.  Since the ocean is just a few miles away from here, this is a very personal story to me.

Once upon a time in the Kingdom of Heaven, God was missing for six days. Eventually, Michael, the Archangel, found Him resting on the seventh day. He inquires of God, “Where have you been?”

God sighed a deep sigh Of satisfaction and proudly pointed downward through the clouds. “Look, Michael, look what I’ve made.”

Archangel Michael looked puzzled and said, “What is it?”

“It’s a planet,” replied God, “and I’ve put life on it. I’m going to call it earth and it’s going to be a great place of balance.”

“Balance?” inquired Michael, still confused.

God explained, pointing to different parts of the earth, “For example, Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth, while Africa is going to be poor. The Middle East over there will be a hot spot.” God continued, pointing to different countries, “This one will be extremely hot and while this one will be very cold anvered with ice.”

The Archangel, impressed by God’s work, then pointed to a large land mass with an ocean as it border and said, “What’s that one?”

“Ah,” said God, “that’s the Jersey Shore, the most glorious place on earth. There are beautiful beaches, rivers, lakes, and climate. The people from the Jersey Shore are going to be modest, intelligent, and humorous, and they are going to be found traveling the world. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking, and high achieving people, and they will be known throughout the world as diplomats and carriers of peace.”

Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then exclaimed, “What about balance, God? You said there would be balance! Everyone and everything seems so totally perfect in this place you call the Jersey Shore”

God replied wisely, “Wait until you see the assholes I’m sending down from New York every summer.

Rapper Snoop Dogg and five associates were arrested after a fracas at Heathrow Airport that injured seven police officers, British media reported Thursday.

The Press Association news agency said members of the star’s entourage had hurled bottles of whisky and argued with staff at a duty free shop after being refused entry to a first-class lounge.

London’s Metropolitan Police said officers were called to “reports of a disturbance involving 30 people in a business lounge” at Terminal 1 of the busy airport on Wednesday.

When police told the group that they would not be allowed to board their flight, “a number of the group became abusive and pushed officers,” a spokeswoman said on the force’s customary condition of anonymity.

Six men were arrested on charges of violent disorder and affray and spent the night at London police stations. Police did not name the men, but said all were U.S. citizens in their 30s.

Seven officers received cuts, bruises and other minor injuries, the force said.

Snoop Dogg — real name Calvin Broadus, 34 — had been due to perform in Johannesburg, South Africa, on Thursday.

A former associate of Los Angeles gang the Crips, Snoop Dogg built his early career on recordings offering gritty details of gang life.

The pharmacist walks into the store to find a guy leaning heavily against a
wall. He asks the blonde clerk “What’s with that guy over there by the wall?”

The blonde clerk responds:  “Well, he came in here this morning to get
something for his cough.  I couldn’t find the cough syrup, so I gave him an
entire bottle of laxative.”

The pharmacist yells: “You idiot! You can’t treat a cough with a laxative!”

The blonde clerk responds, “Of course you can!  Look at him, he’s afraid to

The Bush administration is full of it.

These guys are full of one of two things ...
1. The administrationis full of people of high moral values.  The morals of these people are so high that they are willing to defy US law to bring attention to lies and illegal activities that the Bush administration is committing in the name of “National Security” or the “War on Terror”.

2.  The administration is full of people of extraordinary low moral values.  The morals of these scum suckers are beneath the scum that they suck.  They broadcast the names of covert individuals because they have been embarassed by reports of the lies of the administration in the name of “National Security” or the “War on Terror”.

The only thing that is for sure is that the current regime is corrupt. It is only corrupt because it has been in power for so long.  Once the current era of corruption is over, it will surely be replaced by another corrupt regime of a different party affiliation.  Any party in power for too long becomes corrupt.  Just ask the Communists.

I dare you!

There are countless questions that arise out of the CIA’s dismissal of a prominent intelligence officer, Mary O. McCarthy (no relation), for leaking classified information to the media. But one in particular springs to mind right now: Why isn’t she in handcuffs?

The CIA’s announcement of the dismissal did not refer to McCarthy by name. But its description of the officer’s conduct was unambiguous. According to the New York Times,

A C.I.A. officer has been fired for unauthorized contact with the media and for the unauthorized disclosure of classified information,” said a C.I.A. spokesman, Paul Gimigliano. “This is a violation of the secrecy agreement that is the condition of employment with C.I.A. The officer has acknowledged the contact and the disclosures.

With a record-breaking height of 420-feet and record-breaking speed of 120 mph, Top Thrill Dragster delivers on its promise of thrilling riders this summer at Cedar Point, Ohio.

The last picture says it all and is one of the reasons I don’t ride those crazy things.

Heros come in different sizes, shapes and ages!

STEELTON, Pennsylvania (AP)—A 6-year-old girl who escaped a house fire early Tuesday died after running back inside to find her mother, authorities said.

The youngster did not realize that her mother had jumped to safety from a second-floor window.

Firefighters found the body of little Da-Onah Watts under a bed on the second floor.

Da-Onah and a 13-year-old cousin had been asleep on the first floor when they awoke to flames and ran from the house, said Police Chief Kenneth Lenker.

The older girl, Nesha Barely, lost her grip on Da-Onah as they escaped, Lenker said. Nesha told authorities Da-Onah kept yelling for her mother and went back in to try to find her.

Police Arrest Nude Man Stuck in Chimney

Now this is just stupid!

HAYWARD, Calif. — A man who spent five hours naked and stuck in the chimney of his stepmother’s home was arrested on suspicion of being under the influence of drugs, police said.

Police say Michael Urbano, 23, locked himself out of the house early Saturday morning and decided to get in on a cable TV wire through the chimney.

But the wire broke and Urbano fell, getting stuck about three-quarters of the way down. He was freed when a firefighter pushed him to safety.

“We get him up, and he’s naked as a jaybird,” said Hayward police Lt. Gary Branson. “He tells us he took his clothes off because there would be less friction going down the chute. We did find his clothes. So that part checked out.”

Authorities were called about 6:15 a.m. Saturday. A neighbor heard “faint, distressing” calls since about 2:30 a.m. and decided to call police.

Police say it probably wasn’t a comfortable few hours for Urbano.

“He’s not fat,” Branson said, “but he used to play football. He’s not that little.”

Man, Son, Neighbor Swallowed by Cesspool

HUNTINGTON, N.Y. — A 71-year-old man who went outside in the rain to pick up the Sunday newspaper plunged into a cesspool in his front yard, and his son and neighbor were sucked in when they tried to help.

The victims escaped, two with the help of firefighters, covered in raw sewage but not badly hurt.

Andrew Palladino said the soggy ground, soaked by two days of rain, gave way outside his Long Island home: “I walked across the lawn, and all of a sudden I disappeared.”

He yelled to his wife for help, and she threw a rope and called their son, Dan, who lives with them. The son said the scene “was like a horror picture.”

A neighbor who heard the commotion ran over to help — but the ground gave way again, swallowing him and the son. The neighbor crawled out and passers-by tried to hold onto the others until the Huntington Fire Department arrived.

Firefighters secured the ground, lassoed Palladino and his son and dragged them out.

It’s not the first time a cesspool — a pit that collects waste from toilets and sinks — has swallowed someone in Huntington.

In 2001, a man practicing archery in the backyard with his two children died when his cesspool caved in and consumed him. And in 1998, a Huntington Station man was rescued after he fell 65 feet into one.

Teens shut out on prom night at aquarium

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Published on: 04/25/06

An expected highlight of the year turned into a low point in their high school careers for a dozen or so promgoers.

Primped to perfection, almost all of them held prepaid tickets for their prom Saturday night at this spring’s hottest venue: the Georgia Aquarium. But instead of enjoying a memorable evening dancing the night away, the students were turned away at the door.
