Because he clearly didn't know.

2 guys are at a bar, the waitress is nearby...waiting. She approaches the man on the further barstool with what appears to be the check and he responds by trying to stuff money into her shirt, as ion "down her shirt.

She failed to appreciate this and punches him/

He responds by grabbing her ass which earns him a very nice swat with the menu.

He, of course, is a complete asshole and fails to learn his lesson and continues to harass her.

She then totally decks him with the giant menu, clearly knows him out: would have been over if it was in a ring, he would have failed a standing 8 count.

Moral of story: don't be a dick.

Or else.

found on CNN

Essentially, the police raided - actually raid is too strong: they executed a search warrant with no report of theatrics - this man's house and found this and posted it. It was considered quite funny. People asked if it was real: police said the have no sense of humor. It's real.

Cops tasers AND pepper-sprays black man who is having a stroke.

Saying he did nothing wrong, a Virginia police officer resigned from the Fredricksburg Police Department after body-cam video showed him using his Taser, and then pepper-spray, on an unresponsive black man sitting in his car.
This makes him a PIG. Whine about it all you want, all you;re doing is supporting a PIG: a cop who abused his power and STUPIDLY and with MALICE AFORETHOUGHT sought to add pain and misery to a black man he, in his infinite stupidity, thought was resisting arrest.

More over the orange thing. If you're interested.

Pot Legalization Casualties: Oregon Drug Dogs Get the Pink Slip

As Oregon prepares for the advent of legal marijuana beginning July 1, there are already some clear losers. Among them are the state's drug sniffing dogs, for whom the pink slips are in the mail.

Like technicians in a horsewhip factory in the days of yore, Oregon's drug dogs are workers with a skill set made obsolete by changing times. The dogs are trained to detect any number of illegal substances, including marijuana, but now that weed is about to become legal in Oregon, that pot-sniffing skill becomes not an asset, but a liability.

The reason, police said, is that drug-sniffing dogs are often used to alert authorities about the presence of drugs, providing them with the probable cause necessary to initiate a search. If,

That's enough of a snippet - go read the rest.

Boehner refuses to talk about GOP Amtrak cuts

When a reporter asked Boehner to clarify whether Amtrak’s apparent infrastructure troubles are related to spending cuts, Boehner interrupts her and demands: “Are you really going to ask such a stupid question?”

 - - -

“Well,” says Boehner, more sternly now, “obviously it’s not about funding. The train was going twice the speed limit. Adequate funds were there. No money’s been cut from rail safety. And the House passed a bill earlier this spring, to reauthorize Amtrak and reauthorize a lot of these programs. And uh, it’s hard for me to imagine that people take the bait on some of the nonsense that gets, uh, spewed around here.”

"We are glad he's white"

by xxdr zombiexx

Hooo-boy.....

The sheriff of Nelson County, Kentucky expressed relief that a 25-year-old man shot by one of his deputies was white during a press conference on Monday, suggesting that black protesters would become violent because they were misinformed by the media.
Play the jeopardy theme and let that soak in for a moment.

This appears to have occurred on April 28th 2015. I just saw this this afternoon, searching for something totally different.

FOX 5 Atlanta

DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. - We been following the story of 8-year old Savannah Talley whose family has been trying to get cannabis oil to treat her extreme seizure disorder. According to the family's Facebook page, little Savannah developed a brain hemorrhage late Wednesday night and was declared brain dead. She later died.

She was able to get two doses of the cannabis oil, but the treatment was too late.

She would have sometimes more than 100 seizures a day.

Georgia had made a stab at legalizing one strain of cannabis for oil purposes ()because they heard it 'wouldn't get you high") but they shelved it.

Earlier this year, Governor Nathan Deal did sign the bill, apparently after becoming concerned that families were leaving Georgia for Colorado where they can legally get this life-changing medical preparation.

More

The little girl fought, but the hundreds of seizures were just too much.

Her parents fought too. Just two days ago, they obtained one of the only temporary Georgia cannabis oil permits.

2 doses.

Too little too late for this little girl.

Doubtlessly others will suffer as well, all needlessly due to shameful ignorance created by generations of false anti-marijuana propaganda.

Won't anybody think of the children????

Yep: The cops shot him.

A white police officer in a small South Carolina town shot and gravely wounded a black homeowner who had called 911 during an attempted home invasion. The officers apparently mistook him for a suspect.

Sheriff’s deputies shot the victim, Bryant Heyward, 26, of Hollywood, South Carolina, on Thursday morning shortly after he called 911 to plead for help because two armed men were trying to break into his home.

 - - - - -

By the time two Charleston County sheriff’s deputies arrived at Heyward’s home, the two suspects had fled and Heyward went to greet the officers at his back door — reportedly holding his brother’s handgun.

He reportedly had the gun firing back at the 2 people who attempted to invade his home.

When he shows up to answer the door for the police....you know how cops are about a black man with a gun.

Founder of TNT Academy Shocked Students & Parents With Racist Comments

All hell broke loose when The founder of TNT Academy in Lilburn Georgia shocked students and parents alike when she made racists comments towards her black graduates.
The principal (and owner, I believe) of this little Christian Academy in either Lilburn or Stone Mountain Georgia (same general vicinity) screws up commencement and cuts off the valedictorian. Some people get upset and start to walk out. Principal just loses it, crabs at the audience about THEIR rudeness, tells the staff to 'close the doors, ostensibly to prevent people from choosing to exit..(brilliant move).

 And then she drops the bomb: more from Raw Story

Gordeuk reportedly tried to get the audience to return to their seats, despite many of them leaving the building, leading to her apparently becoming frustrated.

“I think y’all owe this young man an apology, especially that goober that was coming through with his little thing. That was so rude,” she says, alluding to an unidentified student. “Where are you, you little coward? Come on back up here and let’s talk.”

 - - - -

“You people are so rude to not listen to this speech,” Gordeuk continues, as the unidentified valedictorian, a white person, stands near her. “It was my fault that we missed it in the program. Look who’s leaving, all the black people.”

At that point, anybody who wasn't already upset, was.

Raw Story posting

Prince on Saturday released “Baltimore,” the song he recorded in response to unrest in the city over the police custody death of Freddie Gray.

The star shared the track, which was recorded at his Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota, through Twitter a day before he was due to play at Sunday’s Rally4Peace concert in Baltimore which he announced this week.

Song available at Raw Story link: I could not figure out how to embed.

We have an ongoing discussion - for lack of a better word - about how to (A) rein in the out-of-control cop behavior we see every day now and (B) providing some sort of support of benefit to their victims.

We all have heard about people suing the police for millions and winning, but it doesn't EVERY actually impact the police.

Chicago has something brewing.

I am bringing the article to your attention and will only excerpt a tiny bit: you must go read it as that is the purpose of this diary.
