Brickbat: That Burns

|

Former Laurel, Maryland, police chief David Crawford is facing numerous charges of attempted murder, arson and malicious burning in connection with a dozen fires in multiple counties across the state. The fires took place between 2011 and 2020, and officials eventually established that all of the victims had professional or personal ties to Crawford. Police say when they searched his home, they found a "target list." They also say his Internet search history included searches for the victims' addresses and that Crawford had a burn scar on his leg. His targets included his stepson, former co-workers, his chiropractor and a woman with whom he had a disagreement about school redistricting. Crawford had opposed a school redistricting proposal, saying in a public forum he was concerned about immigrants bringing crime.

  2. His chiropractor. Yeah, this guy was tailor made to rise in the ranks of a Maryland police department.

    1. Notice he didn’t burn down a doughnut shop?

        1. I quit working at shoprite and now I make $65-85 per/h. How? I’m working online! My work didn’t exactly make me happy so I decided to take a chance on something new… after 4 years it was so hard to quit my day job but now I couldn’t be happier.

          Here’s what I-qwe do.=========> USA ONLINE JOBS

  3. But is there specific case law telling cops they can’t burn down houses? Guy surely deserves QI.

    1. We actually need case law that says you can’t burn down your chiropractor’s home, your step son’s home, etc. Cops need it spelled out very specifically. As we all know, they weed out people with even moderate IQs.

      1. Last time I got pulled over, it was because I’d forgotten to register my car, the brute talked real sloooow. I swear he was retarded.

        1. I thought the last time you got pulled over was when you were riding a bicycle, in a denim jacket, while the police were in the process of chasing down a dangerous fugitive in military fatigues that had escaped on foot. Right? And the police totally thought you were the fugitive! How crazy!

          Did I miss something?

          1. Good memory, but that was a week ago. Sarc gets pulled over a whole lot, I guess.

            1. It was a very memorable piece of bullshit lol

            2. Google pays for every Person every hour online working from home job. I have received $23K in this month easily and I earns every weeks $5K to 8$K on the sho internet. Every Person join this and working easily by open just open this website and follow instructions

      2. Maybe just more training, tighten up some procedures.
        “Chief Crawford arrived at the scene, and his service incendiary device discharged.”

    2. He didn’t do it on the clock. Had he burned those places down while in uniform nothing else would have happened.

      1. Figured. Just a little hyperbolic jokey sarcasm.

        1. Now JesseAz is running socks. Cute. One more asshole to ignore.

          1. Rich coming from you, SQRLS.

          2. What? How was that even a negative comment towards you? You are seriously paranoid man. I’ve had this account for several years, I just avoid making comments because of crap like this that advance nothing and only waste my time.

            1. In case you haven’t noticed a half dozen assholes drop turds on all my comments. I assumed you were another. Perhaps I was wrong.

              1. We’ll stop when you retire your SQRLSY sock …. deal?

                1. I can’t retire socks that I don’t run. That’s just another Big Lie started by Tulpa and continued by liars and idiots who find it easier to believe one person goes through the trouble of running multiple accounts than multiple accounts being run by multiple people.

                  Keep believing it though. It just make you and your girlfriends look like gullible morons. Because only a gullible moron would allow themselves to be tricked by Tulpa.

                  That post wasn’t for you. It was for people with brains who read these comments.

                  1. I can’t retire socks that I don’t run.

                    So, you admit that you do run socks? Which ones?

                    “Keep believing it though.”

                    I have personally caught you forgetting to log out of your SQRSLY account …. twice.

                    Do you want me to post the links, again?

                  2. No I didn’t admit to anything, and you didn’t catch anything.

                    You’re just a dishonest piece of loser shit.

                    I’m going back to flagging all your comments.

                    Hope these responses are useful for people with brains.

                    1. Hey sarcasmic, they hate us because they probably inwardly know that they are wrong, and we are right. Preserve your anonymity here, else some of these assholes would be perfectly happy to fire-bomb your house in the middle of the night! These are potentially killers! This is why Jesus, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., etc., got themselves killed!

                      I’m not shitting you! A brilliant writer made the full-blown case for all this, and more, HERE!

                      http://www.churchofsqrls.com/Do_Gooders_Bad/

                    2. “Hey sarcasmic, they hate us because” you’re retards. Correction, because you, sarc, are a retard.

                    3. Hey Goldilicks Girlshit… from the well-documented, cited web page…

                      The knuckle-dragging troglodytes among us, on the internet, even when we know darned well that most of the commenters are anonymous, go into an instinctually-driven mode of “punish the people who are wise, benevolent, and correct”, and make them look bad! Else they might steal my wife or girlfriend, and make my babies”! It is knee-jerk stupidity, on a largely-anonymous chat board, but there it is!

                    4. Tell us all about Roxanne, Melvin.

                    5. Preserve your anonymity here, else some of these assholes would be perfectly happy to fire-bomb your house in the middle of the night! These are potentially killers!

                      Doubt it. They’re just a bunch of cowardly internet tough guys who boost their self esteem by insulting anonymous people on the internet. Losers through and through.

                      Except for Nardz. That guy is dangerous.

                    6. Now, now, Mr. Martin.

                      Take it easy.

                    7. Goldilicks Girlshit is even more mentally ill than “Roxanne” ever was! To be evil is to be mentally ill, in the WORST way possible, Goldilicks Girlshit!

                      To understand that, start here: M. Scott Peck, The People of the Lie, https://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0684848597/reasonmagazinea-20/ … Start there PLEASE, Goldilicks Girlshit! For your own good!

                    8. Come on, Melvin.

                      Now you really sound like you’re losing it.

                    9. You really think we’re the same person? There’s no way I could even parody that nutjob let alone be him. You give me too much credit.

                    10. Ok, Melvin.

                2. Seriously, why would someone run multiple accounts that are used as punching bags by you and your girlfriends? That’s a really dumb thing to believe. Really fucking dumb. But you believe it. Guess that makes you really fucking dumb.

                  1. “Seriously, why would someone run multiple accounts that are used as punching bags by you and your girlfriends?”

                    That is a question for you. Who knows? Perhaps you are a masochist. Perhaps you are bored. Perhaps you are a paid troll. The motivation is not so much the issue as the fact that you are, in fact, doing it.

                    Example 1:

                    https://reason.com/2021/02/05/this-draconian-bill-would-turn-millions-of-peaceful-gun-owners-into-felons/#comment-8745246

                  2. So if squirrel responds to a response to my post that means we’re the same person?

                    Does that mean when you respond to a response to one of JesseAz’s posts that you two are the same person?

                    Weak sauce, loser.

                    1. “So if squirrel responds to a response to my post that means we’re the same person?”

                      It isn’t merely that your sock account interjects in the middle of conversations that have nothing to do with him, it the interjection occurs only when you are engaging in a shitposting session with someone else, and at no other time. Your SQRSLY sock never jumps into the middle of a conversation, in any other circumstance.

                      The sock puppetry is also evident from the fact that when you forget to log out from the SQRSLY account, you respond in normal English, instead of using the demented, all-caps, incoherent rambling style that you clearly spend your days pre-writing just so you can copy and paste it and shit up the threads to no end.

                      In short, you completely forget that you are supposed to be pretending to be a mental patient.

                      You’ve been busted multiple times.

                      Give it up.

                    2. You’ve obviously convinced yourself, Sherlock. Jokes on you because you’re dancing on Tulpa’s strings. Have fun thinking I’m multiple people. Whatever gets you off.

                    3. When was the last time you saw Roxanne?

              2. You were wrong. There are 20 plus meaningless replies following you calling me an asshole and accusing me of being somebody’s sock. I still can’t figure out why you thought my reply was attacking you, but whatever. I like debating, especially with other libertarians who disagree and even if it gets heated I never take it personally. Sometimes I learn something or look at an issue differently. But I have no interest in socks and BS like that.

  4. Sounds like a mostly peaceful kind of guy.

    1. Burning things is speech, right?

  5. “…he was concerned about immigrants bringing crime.”

    Sounds like Der TrumpfenFuhrer Himself (Hallowed Be His Name)!

    Well, this cop-arsonist-guy is on OUR side, then! Our violence good! Their violence bad! Laws are for the little people! Hang a medal on him!

    1. For it is well ***AND*** true and good to ask JesseBonFeur if my SUPPOSED mental illness from poo eating and Trumpentatorshit Derangement Syndrome is terminal. I instead ask: Does the Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavor on the Bedpost Overnight?

      1. Good god, sarc. Give it up.

    2. No need for any of them filthy furriners, when we clearly have brave and loyal Americans willing to commit crimes.

  6. “saying in a public forum he was concerned about immigrants bringing crime.”

    So basically rightwing terrorism.

    1. No, leftwing terrorism.

      “and a woman with whom he had a disagreement about school redistricting”

  7. Now Ossifer Friendly is telling Antifa: “Oh yeah? Well two can play at that game!”

  8. I’ll just come right out and say it, this guy sounds like a real jerk.

  9. No immigrants in my neighborhood or I’ll burn it all down! Gosh, Trump voter?

    1. How many right-wingers were burning down cities over the summer?

      1. How many Hillarypanzees gone apeshit have tried to replace democracy with mobocracy?
