“Let us contemplate our forefathers, and posterity, and resolve to maintain the rights bequeathed to us from the former, for the sake of the latter. The necessity of the times, more than ever, calls for our utmost circumspection, deliberation, fortitude, and perseverance. Let us remember that `if we suffer tamely a lawless attack upon our liberty, we encourage it, and involve others in our doom.’ It is a very serious consideration…that millions yet unborn may be the miserable sharers of the event.” –Samuel Adams, speech in Boston, 1771

    A more better start to the week, with 2 DRT, and maybe “Young” Daivionne (sigh) learning a lesson not taught a choir practice. Here’s to a nice injection of fluids for him from Bubba & the gang.

    No Miss Thang this morning? Pity. Did like the “shot” of the Baby Hand Cannon.

    Should have stopped him from harming himself….

    • Toxic Deplorable B Woodman says:

      Why?

      • 26Limabeans says:

        Two in the hat would make him stop.
        End his suffering.
        Just trying to be kind.

        • Toxic Deplorable B Woodman says:

          Ahhhh………..Now I understand.
          Gives a new meaning to the term “killing with kindness”.
          BUt if the perp kills himself, then the homeowner can’t be charged with anything.

    Daivioanne?
    Someone walked onto Claw’s wheelhouse with that one.

  4. Sounds like the perp who ran downstairs and started to stab himself with a knife didn’t have a Knife day.

    Are we hitting a higher percentage of DRTs and DOTs these days? More people defending themselves, or are we just getting better at finding the stories?

    Another idiot breaking into a Houstonian’s house. You’d be better off trying to knock off a gun store.

    Great photo of the SP 101. I wonder what the shutter speed was.
