A little insight into the mindset of Florida police

In Email, Zimmerman’s Local Police Chief Agrees He’s Another ‘Sandy Hook’ Waiting To Happen

By Judd Legum on September 12, 2013 at 5:11 pm

Police Chief Steve Bracknell, who is responsible for the Florida town where George Zimmerman resides, agreed in a series of emails that Zimmerman is a “ticking time bomb” and another “Sandy Hook” waiting to happen.
Bracknell expressed his views in response to two emails from Santiago Rodriguez, who reached Bracknell through a contact form on the police department’s website. Bracknell confirmed the emails’ authenticity


See, here's the thing. George Zimmerman is not a ticking time bomb waiting to explode. He has already exploded. He has already murdered a young man. But that apparently doesn't count in Florida. Now he has threatened his white estranged wife and her white parents, now suddenly he's become dangerous? Now he's a threat to "the community?"

He's already committed one murder, but I'm afraid that sooner or later he's going to became an actual problem. He's eventually going to end up killing someone. . . um, you know, someone who counts.


I swear, the more I learn about Ted Cruz the more he creeps me out.

First there was the story about Ted's father filling him with delusions of grandeur, telling him that he was God's chosen one or whatever.

Now I see this:

Ted Cruz: 'We Need 100 More Like Jesse Helms' In The Senate

And that's not even the crazy part. The crazy part is not that Ted Cruz thinks we need 100 retrograde racist homophobes in the Senate, that's pretty much to be expected from any teabagger. This is the crazy part:

"I’ll tell you something … the very first political contribution I ever made in my life was to Jesse Helms. When I was a kid, I sent $10 to Jesse Helms, ’cause they were beating up on him, they were coming after him hard and I thought it wasn’t right, and at the time my allowance was 50 cents a week,”

What kind of a 10-year-old  kid is even aware of Jesse Helms? Much less is a fan? And so much of a fan that he saves up 20 weeks worth of his allowance to send him a contribution? And how does a Hispanic kid choose to donate to one of the most virulent racists the Senate has ever seen?

Also, at 10 years old, little Teddy had already absorbed the Republican right-wing victim mentality. "Oh, they were beating up on him! Oh, they were coming after him! Oh, poor defenseless little Senator Asswwipe, we all must chip in to defend him against whoever 'they' are!""

Seriously, the more I learn about Ted Cruz, the more he creeps me out!
