man gets 5 years in the slammer for not being pretty. see the link, you’ll understand.

Here one hell of a problem story and ppl arguing both sides.

Pretty 16 year old girl out partying with friends and as usual for these times, the kid gets stoned and is three sheets to the wind.
She also had some kind of drug in her system.  But it’s all the fault of a guard with 20 years experience under his belt.

Her friends board a subway train, she’s left outside (see the link below) and is leaning against the carriage. 
The train is about to leave but the silly girl is seen leaning against the train’s car.

Now it’s my assumption that anyone seeing her would have assumed that as soon as the girl saw the train moving, she would back away. But she didn’t.
And so she died.

But, it’s the fault of the train guard who gave the signal to the driver to start.
And so the guard gets five years in the slammer as the judge comes down on him like a ton of bricks.
I think the judge is an idiot but unfortunately for the poor hapless guard, the only opinion that counts here is the opinion of an idiot in the form of a judge.
People have killed other people while driving drunk and often do not even go to jail. Or else they get no more than this guard did. Let me tell you what the guard’s crime was. And he is surely guilty as sin on this score.

The poor man is NOT photogenic!  His image is NOT media friendly.

See him at the link and you’ll understand.  He is guilty okay. Of looking goofy.
Meanwhile, the grieving mother says, “Georgia was my entire family.”
Well mom, your entire family was dead drunk at 16.
Of course, that was solely the fault of a guard who isn’t pretty. 


‘An appalling disregard for safety’: Railway guard jailed for five years over death of teenage girl who fell under carriage

Georgia Varley died after falling between a train and the platform on a night out in Liverpool

Train guard Christopher McGee, 45, gave the signal for the driver to depart as the 16-year-old was leaning against the carriage

McGee was sentenced to five years in prison today after being found guilty of manslaughter by gross negligence

The teenager’s heartbroken mother said: ‘Georgia was my entire family’

‘She paid for your criminal negligence with her life’ a judge said

By Jaya Narain and Sam Webb

A railway guard found guilty of manslaughter following the death of a teenage girl who fell under a train was jailed for five years today.

Christopher McGee, 45, took a ‘terrible risk’ by giving the signal for the driver to depart as Georgia Varley, 16, was leaning against the carriage, a judge said.

The sixth-form college student, who was drunk on a night out in Liverpool with friends, fell between the train and the platform at the city’s James Street station in October last year as a result of McGee’s ‘appalling disregard for her safety’, a court heard.

Georgia, who was leaning against the train when the railway guard gave the signal for it to leave, was seen to stagger and fall into the gap as it moved away from the platform.

McGee was found guilty of manslaughter by gross negligence following a two week trial at Liverpool Crown Court.

Jailing McGee for five years today, Mr Justice Holroyde said: ‘You did not intend to kill or even injure her, but you displayed an appalling disregard for her safety and she paid for your criminal negligence with her life.’

No you fuckin idiot! You and the dim jury. She paid with her life for being drunk and stupid!  And stoned on drugs as reported here.
And anyway, why should a subway train full of people with no tie to her be inconvenienced just because she was stoned?  Lets take another look at sweet 16.

image

Passing sentence, the judge said: ‘In my judgement, the CCTV footage is unequivocal, Georgia Varley was not moving away and she was not showing any sign of moving away.

‘She only moved when the movement of the train deprived her of support and caused her to lose balance and fall to her death.

‘I am satisfied that you merely hoped and assumed she would get out of the way when the train began to move, and on that wholly inadequate basis you took a terrible risk,’ he added.

‘You must have known that a passenger who falls between the train and the platform is likely to be killed,’ he told the defendant.

‘As the guard of the train, you were in complete control of the movement of the train. That control carries with it the direct and personal responsibility for the safety of passengers.’

Georgia, from Moreton, Wirral, had gone into Liverpool for a night out with her friends when the incident happened on October 22 last year.

A blood analysis following her death showed she had 236mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood in her system - the legal driving limit is 80mg.

She also had 0.083mg of the drug mephedrone, or Mcat, in her system at the time of her death.

And here’s a thought. Good thing she wasn’t a muzzie or he’d have gotten life without parole.

a letter to the president

H/T RichK for making us aware of this.

I received this letter from a friend this morning.  It is making the rounds of cyberspace. I was going to say, “But of course it’s satire.” Then I asked myself: “How can you tell?” Well, how can you tell?
By Roger Kimball, PJ Media

Dear President Obama:

I’m planning to move my family and extended family into Mexico for my health, and I would like to ask you to assist me.

We’re planning to simply walk across the border from the U.S. Into Mexico, and we’ll need your help to make a few arrangements.

We plan to skip all the legal stuff like visas, passports, immigration quotas and laws.

I’m sure they handle those things the same way you do here. So, would you mind telling your buddy, President Calderon, that I’m on my way over?

Please let him know that I will be expecting the following:

1. Free medical care for my entire family.

2. English-speaking government bureaucrats for all services I might need, whether I use them or not.

3. Please print all Mexican government forms in English.

4. I want my grandkids to be taught Spa nish by English-speaking (bi-lingual) teachers.

5. Tell their schools they need to include classes on American culture and history.

6. I want my grandkids to see the American flag on one of the flag poles at their school.

7. Please plan to feed my grandkids at school for both breakfast and lunch.

8. I will need a local Mexican driver’s license so I can get easy access to government services.

9. I do plan to get a car and drive in Mexico, but, I don’t plan to purchase car insurance, and I probably won’t make any special effort to learn local traffic laws.

10. In case one of the Mexican police officers does not get the memo from their president to leave me alone, please be sure that every patrol car has at least one English-speaking officer.

11. I plan to fly the U.S. Flag from my house top, put U S. Flag decals on my car, and have a gigantic celebration on July 4th. I do not want any complaints or negative comments from the locals.

12. I would also like to have a nice job without paying any taxes, or have any labor or tax laws enforced on any business I may start.

13. Please have the president tell all the Mexican people to be extremely nice and never say critical things about me or my family, or about the strain we might place on their economy.

14. I want to receive free food stamps.

15. Naturally, I’ll expect free rent subsidies.

16. I’ll need Income tax credits so although I don’t pay Mexican Taxes, I’ll receive money from the government.

17. Please arrange it so that the Mexican Gov’t pays $4,500 to help me buy a new car.

18. Oh yes, I almost forgot, please enroll me free into the Mexican Social Security program so that I’ll get a monthly income in retirement.

I know this is an easy request because you already do all these things for all his people who walk over to the U.S. from Mexico.

I am sure that President Calderon won’t mind returning the favor if you ask him nicely.

one of the penalties of being a member of the european union. time to leave?

Take serious note of this article, and be thankful if you’re reading this in America.
This is the typical kind of crap that the Brits have to put up with on an almost daily basis.

If anyone in the USA of any political party should ever seriously suggest that the USA should join a union of some kind with Europe, the kind of treaty or document the Brits signed onto, anything that in any way might bond or tie us to anything even remotely similar, than I would hope that some patriotic American would grab a gun and kill whoever suggested the tie. And to be on the certain side of things, kill the family as well to send a message that it would never be tolerated.  Not ever.  And don’t smugly kid yourselves that nobody in the USA thinks along the lines the jerks here do.  We have em okay. 
They think the euros are way civilized what with the death penalty banned and all, and would welcome courts and the same system that operate the European Court of Human Rights.

I have said this a few times and I’ll keep saying it cos I know it to be true.  There are agencies of the EU that actively fund things in the USA, usually to do with their version of what civil and human rights ought to be. They actively support and have funded anti death penalty groups in the states that still have it. That should bother you. It should piss you off. 

Take a good look and read the court’s take on this case.  Piss ant libtards.  Why are they still breathing?

Take a look at this. 

Illegal immigrant and failed asylum seeker handed £24,000 by Human Rights judges after ‘British law failed to protect her from slavery’ ( $37,248 )

An investigation by police officers found she was NOT a victim of slavery and was a criminal

A British judge also cast doubt on her credibility and described her story as ‘implausible’

By Steve Doughty

A failed asylum-seeker was handed thousands of pounds in compensation yesterday by European judges who claimed British law had failed to protect her from being treated as a slave.

The Ugandan came to Britain illegally on a false passport, became a care worker and was free to leave the house where she worked, the European Court of Human Rights heard.

Police investigating the 33-year-old’s case decided she was a criminal and a British judge cast doubt on her credibility, describing her story as ‘implausible’.

But the Strasbourg judges ruled that the woman, whose identity they shielded, suffered a breach of her rights as there was no UK law at the time specifically banning slavery. They ordered the Government to pay her £23,500, made up of £7,000 in compensation and £16,500 in expenses and costs.

The judgment marks another case in which Britain has been told that Acts of Parliament and common law have been inadequate to meet European demands.

Since then, the 2009 Coroners and Justice Act has been passed which specifically outlaws slavery.

However, Prime Minister David Cameron remains at odds with Strasbourg over the human rights judges’ demand that Britain allows convicted prisoners to vote.

The woman in the slavery case – identified only as CN – came to this country in 2002 on a false passport and visa provided by her uncle, identified only as PS.

He set her up as a care worker for an Iraqi couple in Leeds and £1,600 a month was paid for the work.

But, the woman alleged, the money was given to her uncle and she was never paid more than £20 or £40 when she was given an afternoon off each month.

She did not complain until 2006, four years later, when she collapsed in a bank and was treated in hospital after it was discovered she was HIV positive.

CN was given a flat by her local council, but her application for asylum, on the grounds she had fled sexual and physical violence in Uganda, failed.

Police investigations ended in 2009 following two inquiries into the woman’s complaints that she was held as a slave. A report from the Metropolitan Police Human Trafficking Team noted that she had been refused legitimate entry into Britain and had come in with a false passport and forged visa.

The woman had been paid through her relative ‘in order to hide from the authorities the fact that the victim did not have a national insurance number’.

The report went on: ‘If money was paid to her, then she would have had to pay tax and her false identity would have come to the notice of the tax office. This would then lead to her arrest and eviction from the UK.

‘There is no evidence to show that this female is a victim of slavery or forced labour. She willingly worked and was paid but she chose that the money should go to her uncle to conceal being in the UK. It is basically a situation that one criminal, her uncle, has taken all the proceeds of their crime.’

The British judge who heard CN’s asylum appeal ‘expressed serious concerns about the applicant’s credibility and found much of her account to be implausible’, the Strasbourg court heard.

But the European judges said that, because police investigated the complaints, they could not have been considered implausible. They insisted that the woman’s complaints were credible.

The court added that the inquiry should not have been carried out by a police unit dealing with human trafficking rather than slavery.

Britain was also obliged to prosecute any act aimed at enforcing slavery. The country’s law was ‘inadequate’ for the purpose, the European judges declared.

a very unusual obituary, funny considering he’s gone. this is one i missed in 2011. must see

This obit goes back to May of 2011.  I guess I somehow missed it, but it appeared in part in a paper this weekend past as one of several chosen as among the most colourful.  Well, I don’t know how colourful this is but friends, for an obituary is sure as heck is funny. 

It’s pretty long and I hate to cut things like this short.  But I have to so please, please read all of it at the link.
You know, they could easily make a movie or two movies on this man’s life.

In fact, they did. 

THE PINK PANTHER series could have been written for this guy.

I think you’ll like him.

Colonel Albert Bachmann

Colonel Albert Bachmann, who has died aged 81, was Switzerland’s best-known and most paranoid spymaster, in a country that traditionally has no enemies and refrains from foreign entanglements.

image

Mustachioed, pipe-smoking and blessed with an ability to wreak havoc within his own organisation, Bachmann’s resemblance to Inspector Clouseau was striking; by the time his plots and schemes were uncovered by an astonished commission of inquiry, he had reduced the Swiss military intelligence agency, in which he had mysteriously managed to rise to a senior role, to a state bordering on chaos, not to mention bankruptcy. So catastrophic was his impact that, when he was finally unmasked, many assumed he must be a double agent. He was not.

His most controversial, some would say delusional, acts occurred between 1976 and 1979, when he took charge of top-secret operations for Switzerland’s military intelligence force, the Untergruppe Nachrichtendienst der Armee (UNA). Though Bachmann had flirted with communism in his student days, he was by then a fanatical Cold Warrior, and brought the zeal of the convert to the fight against the Soviet Union.

His first significant move was to buy a country estate in Ireland for use by a Swiss government-in-exile in the event of a Soviet invasion. His second bold step was Projekt-26 (P-26), the creation of a clandestine army of Swiss guerrillas trained in weaponry, bombing and assassination techniques to repel the dreaded Soviet attack.

The problem was that neither the Irish venture nor the secret anti-Soviet army had been officially authorised, and were the fruits of what Bachmann called his “initiative”. Others would come to call it insubordination or even fantasy.

But neither plan stalled Bachmann’s rise. Indeed, his intelligence career was curtailed only after a top-level investigation into an operation he sanctioned in 1979 that deeply embarrassed Switzerland and Austria — friendly neighbours with the same neutral status and few if any military secrets to hide from one another.

In November that year, Austrian troops on manoeuvres in the city of St Pölten tapped on the window of a parked car at 2.30am and were surprised to find inside not a courting couple but a Swiss management consultant called Kurt Schilling.

Schilling, an expert time-and-motion man but an inept spy, was sitting in the front seat with binoculars, map and notepad, staring into the darkness. He had been ordered there, he was happy to recount, by Bachmann, his case officer.

When Schilling asked the soldiers for particulars about their positions, they marched him straight to the state police. His arrest on charges of spying for information freely available to Swiss and other foreign observers at the manoeuvres was portrayed in the press as worthy of a comic opera.

At his subsequent trial for espionage, it emerged that Schilling had been seeking to establish how long Austria could hold out in the event of a Soviet invasion. Taking account of the botched execution of his mission, the court leniently sentenced him to a suspended five-month term and deportation back to Switzerland.
The press mocked Schilling as “the spy who came in from the Emmenthaler”, after Switzerland’s famous cheese. But it was Bachmann’s career that never recovered. In the wake of the Schilling debacle, it became clear that Bachmann and his department were out of control. His boss was forced to resign, and Bachmann himself – exposed as a loose cannon, unchecked and unregulated – was consigned to early retirement.

Albert Bachmann was born in Zurich on November 26 1929, the son of a house painter, and grew up in humble circumstances. While employed as a printer, he enrolled in the youth wing of the PDA, the Swiss communist party. But in 1948, following the communist coup in Prague, he renounced his Left-wing sympathies, became staunchly pro-West and began his National Service with the Swiss grenadiers.

His military career blossomed, and against expectations (he had completed only eight years at school) Bachmann successfully applied to the officer training academy, where he specialised in intelligence gathering with the Swiss military intelligence service.

There, in 1968, he caused a stir as lead author of an official civil defence booklet, delivered to every household in Switzerland, with instructions on how to withstand invasion by an occupying power. In it Bachmann asserted that the gravest danger lay not just with the enemy but with the Swiss political Left, specifically pacifists and intellectuals, just the sort of people with whom he had himself mixed in the PDA.

In his anti-communist booklet, with its plain red cover redolent of the Little Red Book of the Chinese Maoist era, Bachmann controversially urged Swiss citizens to spy on one another.
He escaped the ensuing furore by heading to Biafra, which was seeking to secede from Nigeria. There he operated undercover as a pipe-smoking upper-crust Englishman called Henry Peel and cultivated an air of mystery, hinting at links to secret arms deals involving the Shah of Iran.

On his return Bachmann was promoted to the rank of colonel in the intelligence and defence section of UNA. The post gave him authority over three units of secret military intelligence, including a special service (Spec D) set up to respond to invasion by an occupying power.

Under Bachmann’s eccentric command, its remit grew extensively, and agents were trained as sharpshooters, bomb makers, codebreakers and even mountain guides who were to lead key government and administration figures to safety over the Alps in the event of an invasion. Projekt-26 was born.
Meanwhile, using government funds, Bachmann bought the imposing 200-acre Liss Ard country estate near Skibbereen, in west Cork.

Don’t Go There

I was just thinking about how much this thing with General Petraeus stinks of Chicago thuggery ... destroy the guy’s reputation just a day or two before he’s supposed to testify? Oh, and Oblamo didn’t know nuttin’ until Election Day or the day after?

Oh yeah, the Dems are out to destroy the military. Cuts in the budget, purge all the top brass. Wouldn’t want an effective fighting force you know.

And you know what would destroy the entire US Military faster than anything? Putting a lying two-faced scumbag anti-military traitor in charge. But surely they’d never go there, right?

I’m finishing off lunch watching Fox News, and talking head Megan Kelly is telling me how the Washington Post is reporting that the inside scoop around DC is that Obama wants to make John Fuckface Kerry the new Secretary of Defense.

Aw shit. She went there.

John Fuckin’ Kerry. Reporting for duty. He served in Vietnam you know.

Holy shit.

Closet Painting Day

Painting the coat closet today. That’s AFTER she had me move the fridge over to the other side, and we debated an INTERIM kitchen remodel, in which I’d only have to build a hanging microwave shelf and a couple other bits and pieces. And we’ll try using the Canadel ( a butcher block top rolling base cabinet ) as either a peninsula or an island. And then in the Spring we’ll get around to the real project, which will double the size of the kitchen counters and cabinets.

So I’m keeping busy, that’s for sure. Lunch break now. Listening to Fox News about the mess with General Petraeus and now this other general. WTFF? And it’s all tied in to Benghazi? Huh? Oh, and I seem to recall that Stalin had a big purge of all his top generals too. Hmm, makes me wonder what King Obama is up to.

law, order and justice too? Yeah right. In yer dreams.

okay I’ll be honest. I haven’t any idea which govt. this newest soft approach to doing time is responsible.  Is it the leftover from the Labour govt., “Tough on crime, tough on the causes of crime.” Needless to say neither has come to pass. 
Anyway, I thought I’d acquaint the readership with just how mean and tough the folks here can be when they set their minds to it.

Prisoners have landlines installed in their cells despite Government pledge to crackdown on perks behind bars

· The cost of the pilot scheme is being paid for by BT
· If successful, it could be copied in prisons throughout England and Wales
· Offenders buy phone credit but there is no limit to how many calls they make
By Martin Beckford
If the pilot scheme is deemed a success it could be copied in public sector prisons across England and Wales, having been used for several years in privately run institutions.
But it is taking place at the same time as the new Justice Secretary, Chris Grayling, has vowed to stop prisoners spending all day in their cells watching television or playing video games.
Inmates can also have televisions in their cells for £1 a week while those given “enhanced” status for good behaviour are allowed PlayStation consoles from home and can sleep on their own bedding.
Last month the prisons watchdog, Nick Hardwick, said too many prisoners were “lying on their backs in their cells watching daytime telly” because of a lack of money and staff to give them useful activities.
But some of the in-cell perks could be scrapped as ministers try to stop prisons being seen as “holiday camps”.
A law is being passed that will allow jamming devices to block mobile phone signals in jails, while access to satellite TV channels could be removed.

more at source

Hmm. Wonder who will pay in the end for those BT land lines that says BT will pay for. Like hey man, since when does a telecom giant like British Telecom offer to get involved with social matters on this scale?  Yeah they’ll pay alright. Then collect from the public in higher rates. Again.

Half of all burglars are not sent to prison, even though most have 12 convictions

By Martin Beckford
Burglars with a string of previous convictions are being spared jail, prompting calls for Ministers to toughen up on sentencing.
New figures show the average burglar now has 12 break-ins to their name, the highest number ever recorded.
More than 3,000 convicted last year had been found guilty at least 20 times before.
Despite this, half the burglars were given fines or community sentences rather than being sent to prison.

Community sentences instead of prison. Yes by golly. That will damn well put the frighteners on the bastards. 

Although I could easily come up with more, I’ll simply say finally, there’s this bit of pc rocket science.


Met’s black officers to get priority for top jobs

By Martin Beckford
Britain’s biggest police force is to become the first public body to adopt a policy that gives priority for top jobs to black people and women.
The Metropolitan Police will recruit senior officers and promote civilian staff from minority groups in ‘tie-break’ situations where they are just as qualified as white or male candidates.
Scotland Yard’s diversity board has warned that the ‘positive action’ policy, made legal by equality laws last year, will be controversial.

The move could trigger lawsuits by job applicants who lose out and is likely to raise concerns that successful candidates were chosen to fill quotas rather than on merit. But a meeting chaired by Met Commissioner Bernard Hogan-Howe took the decision to use positive action after it was given Government advice.
Minutes of the policy forum meeting on July 11 state: ‘The Forum were supportive of using a legal provision that could potentially deliver a more diverse workforce.

Ah diversity. Where would we all be without thee?

another pig ignorant brit judge says fuck you to his country as common sense takes holiday

Here is a PRIME example of what belonging to a foreign union in writing brings a nation to. But as bad or worse yet, the home grown liberal ass-wipe pig ignorant and insane judges who make decisions that will impact a nation.

Here is an example America, of a western country looking at itself in a mirror and with raised middle finger saying to it’s image,
“Fuck You.” And so far, this damn fool piece of pig shit judge has done just that. And all in the name of the new religion foisted on the west by, it own damn and stupid self.  The religion of human rights in whose name all manner of insanity and illogical actions are now taken.

Here’s another example.
Of 11,000 foreign prisoners, many with records of violence, only 62 have been booted out of this country in the last few years.
Killers have been allowed to remain because they have a ‘RIGHT’ to a family life. Or they might be ill treated if returned to their home country. 
It insanity and it has truly run amok.
So who is seeing to the rights of the law abiding citizen to justice when preyed upon by the filth that infests society?
It sure as hell is isn’t any judge. And especially not the responsibility of defense council.

There honestly are some people who really should not be breathing.  Like the crud who broke into an old man’s home this week past and stabbed him to death. Wasn’t enough he broke in to rob the house. He had to kill the poor guy while his wife upstairs and recovering from surgery, heard his screams.
If and when they catch the guy who did it, I’m sure all of his rights both real (if any) and imagined (of which there will be loads) will be strictly looked after.

The system stinks to high heaven.  Justice is a joke told by a very bad self appointed comedian usually referred to as a judge.

Abu Qatada back on the streets within hours

Abu Qatada, the extremist cleric, will be back on the streets of Britain today and allowed to roam free for eight hours a day after a court ruled he cannot be deported.

By Tom Whitehead, Security Editor

The decision means that the security services and police will now have to watch him around the clock in a surveillance operation that is likely to cost the taxpayer more than £5 million a year.

The terror suspect was granted bail by a senior immigration judge yesterday after ruling that Theresa May, the Home Secretary, had failed to satisfy him that he would face a fair trial in Jordan. “ We are absolutely determined to see this man get on a plane and go back to Jordan, he does not belong here. “

“He should not be in this country, he is a dangerous person. He wanted to inflict harm on our country and this coalition Government is going to do everything we can to challenge this every step of the way to make sure that he is deported to Jordan.”

Mr Justice Mitting then ordered Qatada be released from a high-security prison and imposed bail conditions that only placed him under a 16-hour curfew.

Conservative MP Peter Bone told ITV’s Daybreak today that the interests of the public should be put before the European Court.

He said: “Enough is enough - put this terrorist on a plane and send him home and worry about the European Court afterwards.

“There are times when we need to put the public interest in front of the European Court and this is one of them.

“The highest court in this land, our Supreme Court, has said he can go back. Now, if the highest court in this land says he can go back, then he can go back.

“We should not be kow-towing to this ‘Mickey Mouse’ European court.”

“The Supreme Court should be the ultimate court.”

The ruling by the Special Immigration Appeals Commission (Siac) is a humiliating blow for Mrs May, who personally travelled to Jordan to obtain assurances that Qatada would face a fair trial.

She sought guarantees after the European Court of Human Rights ruled earlier this year that he could not be deported because there was a risk he would face evidence obtained by torture. But yesterday Siac dismissed those assurances and allowed Qatada’s appeal against deportation.

It is the latest twist in a legal battle that has run for more than a decade and cost the taxpayer more than £1 million in legal fees and benefits.

Qatada, who was once described by a Spanish judge as Osama bin Laden’s right-hand man in Europe, will now be under less stringent bail conditions than when he was last released earlier this year, when he was required to stay at home for 22 hours a day.

Under the new conditions he will be allowed his freedom between 8am and 4pm, although he will be tagged and restricted on whom he can meet.

Security and police sources are concerned over the level of monitoring that will now be required. It would be hugely damaging if Qatada gained access to the internet or video facilities to send out a message of hate or to inspire others to act, even if it meant him being returned to prison.

The Home Office plans to appeal against the decision but if it fails Qatada could remain here indefinitely, with increasingly lenient restrictions on his movements.

Qatada’s lawyer, Edward Fitzgerald QC, said there was “no justification for continuing to deprive Mr Othman [Qatada’s real name] of his liberty”.

LIBERTY TRUMPS PUBLIC SAFETY

Oh btw bmews.  Just to let ya know.  This dirt bag isn’t any old run of the mill mad mullah. Oh no.

His hate videos were found among the belongings of one of the 9/11 hijackers who flew into the WTC.  But his lawyers take no note of that and neither did this shit faced judge.  He and others are soooooo worried his trial wouldn’t be a fair one if returned to Jordan.  And of course he’s really innocent. Makes ya wanna grab a gun. Or toss something at him that goes boom. Pity nobody around who can do that.

Garage Rebuild Complete

A whole lot of work you’ll never notice

A few days ago I put up a quick post about how I was putting in a garage door opener. I wrote how I had to repair the boards used to hang the existing garage door, and how I built sockets to support the newly T capped double 2x4 that the builders had used. They did a shortsighted job, and over the years the nails had pulled out and caused one side of the door track to collapse, at which point some other brainwave did a cheap fix of nailing another board on to hold things together. Well, that was a nice repair, but it was wasted effort.

Inlet into the drywall, this wooden socket supports the T capped doubled 2x4 from which the garage door tracks hang.




It was a nice bit of rough carpentry, and it did the job quite well. Except there was a small problem ...

update welcome, victorville, california

My first on air job at KCIN in The Green Tree Inn. 

Cheers

Ah .... in the days when I had hair and pant size was in 30 range.
If I could, I’d work there again and this time do it for free.
It was a great place to be in those days so long ago.  Maybe 69 or early 70s.
Memories.

When I originally posted this a few days ago, I forgot all about an interesting side story I should have told. So I do so now. Late but better then never.

Sometime after this photo, don’t know how long, I was canned.

This being my first on air job and all, I was disappointed of course, but took it in stride.  I knew the risks of this business beforehand and happily accepted them.

Well, I lost this job because an out of work DJ passing through the area had the station tuned in and decided I was pretty bad and he could do better.

So he found the station and spoke to our program director/station manager, Ron Parker I believe, and told him that he had some years experience and could do better then me and do it for less.  Heck, I was already getting the least they could pay, being a daytime station and all. And there wasn’t that much to advertise out in the desert at that time.  So I was given two weeks pay which they didn’t have to do, and left with no ill will or hard feelings.

Six years later I won the DJ of The Year award for my market, as well as a gold album for my promotion and hounding of Ovation Records, to release a single off that album.  The song won Song of the year two yrs running, which was not usual for Country Music and put The Kendalls on the charts until the sad and untimely passing of a kind and good man, Royce Kendall.

stool pigeons turn in marines just for allowing an enemy to die. go marines and screw the stoolies

Meanwhile ion another part of the world with another military force.

A loud BOO to the dumb and unpatriotic fucks who want to bring charges against their own servicemen for merely letting an enemy vermin die.

I guess this is how the Brits now treat their own combat troops. Not the majority of the public.  Just the suck a** miserable politically correct bastards who happen to stumble on a laptop and hear and see a brief conversation among the warriors.  Stool pigeons. That’s what they are.

Take a look.  Piss ant shits. Pisses me off and not even my country or military but hell. They do support us and have bled in the same damn fight. And when did the taliban sign up to rules of war? Or any rules but the ones they make?

Royal Marines murder trial: Body of Taliban fighter allegedly killed by five soldiers in Afghanistan may never be found

The body of the captive Afghan national allegedly murdered by five Royal Marines may never be found, it has emerged

Details emerged after the five troops won a court battle to protect their anonymity during their trial due to risk to their lives from terrorists

Case has prompted a public backlash and protest marches across Britain demanding the charges against the soldiers be dropped

By David Williams

The body of an unidentified Taliban fighter allegedly murdered by five Royal Marines in Afghanistan may never be found, it emerged last night.

A team of forensic scientists and military police – protected by 120 soldiers – has flown to Helmand to investigate the hugely sensitive murder claims.

But the remains have still to be discovered and, even if they are, they may never be positively identified because nobody knows who he was.

Details of the extraordinary search in the warzone have emerged days after the five troops won a court battle to protect their anonymity during their forthcoming trial because of ‘an immediate and real risk’ to their lives from terrorists.

The Marines first appeared in court last month. They are accused of murdering a captured Afghan national on or about September 15 last year, and were charged after the discovery of video footage on one of the men’s computers, allegedly showing them discussing what to do with a gravely injured captive.

It is the prosecution case that the man – whose name does not appear on any charge sheet – was subsequently murdered. The case has prompted an enormous public backlash with a Facebook campaign attracting over 100,000 supporters and protest marches across Britain demanding the charges be dropped.

None of the accused can be identified after Judge Advocate General Jeff Blackett this week extended an anonymity order.

One protester, former Marine James Grant, 34 – a veteran of two tours in Afghanistan – said the charges against the five were unjust. He said: ‘They were doing their job in incredibly difficult circumstances.

Most of our politicians have not been out to Afghanistan and can never imagine what it is like to be at war.’

The case has focused attention too on the rules of engagement and how Britain applies the law to its servicemen and women operating under the pressures of the battlefield.

The Marines were part of a Commando Battle Group in and around Nad-e Ali, a rural area of Helmand that was once the Taliban’s heartland – an area stained with the blood of dozens of UK servicemen.

In an area known as Death Valley, their remote checkpoint base had come under fierce attack at least eight times and patrols from it were regularly ambushed.

In the six months leading up to the alleged killing last September, more than 20 troops had died in the province, seven of them Marines.

The small band of commandos – between 20 and 30 men – felt isolated in their mud-walled checkpoint, and are said to have stockpiled captured Taliban guns and ammunition in case their own ran out.

Morale across the Marines was dealt a further blow with the death of a popular comrade, James Wright, 23, on August 5 last year when a ten-man patrol was attacked by a force of around 80 Taliban in the Shpazh Gerebian region.

After four hours the patrol managed to pull back to their base with the help of air support and mortar fire. As is routine after a patrol, Wright had taken off his helmet ahead of an operational debrief.
It was then that the Taliban attacked again. Wright, a father-to-be, was fatally wounded in the head by a grenade.

In the following days and weeks there were more attacks in Helmand; one base came under sustained fire for ten successive days. In mid-September the fanatics mounted another attack on an isolated base, leaving more than 20 Marines pinned down. It is the aftermath of this attack that is the focus of the investigations.

An Apache helicopter was called in and was able to end the Taliban assault. Once the fighting subsided, a gunman was found with severe wounds and allegedly close to death.

The video footage allegedly shows Marines discussing what to do with him. Several are said to have held a vote. The filming then stops.

Their options were to treat his wounds and ensure his evacuation to Camp Bastion or take him to their Forward Operating Base for treatment.

Last October the Marines returned home to a heroes’ welcome and, officials say, it is likely that whatever happened would have remained secret, had it not been for the arrest of one of the men by civilian police investigating a completely unrelated matter.

As part of that inquiry they seized his laptop, found the footage from the compound, and alerted the military.

Investigators have questioned officers and fellow Marines while Afghan interpreters are being traced.

The five Marines – known only as A, B, C, D and E – face a Court Martial and their initial appearance was behind closed doors in Bulford garrison on the edge of Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire.
