Oh, Texas.

So there's this chick in Houston, right? She got drunk and got behind the wheel of her Lexus SUV, like a freakin' moron, and ran into a box truck. Her car was totaled and her boyfriend died. When she was tested, which was probably at least an hour after the accident occurred, her blood alcohol level was 3 times the legal limit.

From what I can gather, she served 4 months in jail and is on 8 years of probation.

People who get caught smoking weed in the privacy of their own homes can see life sentences without parole, and this chick killed a guy because she is an idiot and served a brutal 4 months in jail and is on probation for 8 years.


So the injustice of that situation obviously annoys me, but let's go a step further. She, her father, (a judge!) and the family of the killed boyfriend are suing the driver of the truck for negligence. They want $20K for her destroyed car and an undetermined amount for HER mental anguish, pain and suffering.

Oh, yes, you poor darling thing. You got yourself drunk, you got yourself behind the wheel of your car, you ran your car into the back of a guy's truck, you killed your boyfriend, you destroyed your vehicle and damaged someone else's, and it's obviously all the fault of the big meanie who was driving a truck down the road, minding his own business.

She joins the short list of people I will openly mock should I ever have the pleasure of meeting them. Also on the list: the guy who sued his dry cleaners for $67 million because they lost his pants, my niece and nephew's father, Hugh Hefner, and anyone who wears "grillz" with any measure of seriousness.

In Galveston news:

So this 12-year-old girl walks out of her house to flip the breaker switch, right? 3 guys get out of a van, one tells her she's a prostitute and grabs her and starts dragging her toward the car. She starts yelling "Daddy, Daddy" and fighting with all her might to get away from these 3 guys, so naturally the guys respond by covering her mouth and beating her about her head and neck.

So you're this girl's daddy. What do you do?
A) Try to calmly diffuse the situation by talking rationally with these people.
B) Call the police and wait for them to come and watch helplessly while these guys kidnap your daughter.

If you didn't go with C, please seek paternity tests. It's clear that you have no balls.

Turns out, the three guys were cops. Cops that weren't in uniform and were driving an unmarked car. They were responding to a call about a white prostitute in a house two blocks away who was trying to get that chedda, but instead chose to assault a 12-year-old black girl in the wrong house because what the hell, there's nothing better to do tonight.

So a few weeks later, other cops show up to this little girl's school to arrest her because she fought back. Well no doodoo, Sherlock, we teach our children to fight back against people who are trying to kidnap them. You can't just jump out of a car, say "hey, I'm a police officer and I'm going to take your daughter" and start beating her and NOT expect some friction. FOOL.

Here's a statement from the dingleputz representing the cops:
"The father basically attacked police officers as they were trying to take the daughter into custody after she ran off. [...] It's unfortunate that sometimes police officers have to use force against people who are using force against them. And the evidence will show that both these folks violated the law and forcefully resisted arrest."

The chick in Houston and her family should be publically flogged for even bringing suit. I hope a fantastic attack lawyer takes the truck guy's case pro bono just to crush the idiots. Makes my blood boil.

And no police EVER should grab a child EVER and drag then off unless they have double, triple, quadruple checked they have the right child. Oh wait, no GRABBING AND DRAGGING CHILDREN. And if they fight back, BACK OFF and call for backup and triple check AGAIN!!!!! Better safe than sorry, RIGHT?! egad. Poor girl. If that had been a white girl, that never would have gone down that way, and that SUCKS. Seriously.

I thought in Texas, if you kill somebody the state kills you right back. Hm.

Watercolor said...

LOL Sandi! Good point!

Yikes. I'm beginning to feel that we, as a nation, are circling the drain.

"I'm a cop and you're a hooker - get in the van! And if your dad tries any rough stuff, he's going to jail too!" Nobody would EVER say that while just trolling around the neighborhood in a van looking for 12-year-olds. Why didn't the girl believe them? She and her father deserve to be punished by the all-righteous and all-knowing State.

Just wait until the Messiah gets his Civil Defense Force fully operational. Police state, SS, what? PAPERS! SHOW ME YOUR PAPERS!!!
