Brickbat: Half-Baked

|

Officials in South Australia locked down the entire state after a man told them he got the coronavirus after picking up a takeout order at a pizza restaurant in an Adelaide suburb. Fearing they had a superspreader event on hand, authorities even banned outdoor exercise and dog walking. But three days into the lock down, officials lifted it. It turned out the man had lied. He actually worked at the restaurant along with a security guard who had tested positive for the virus. The guard also worked at a hotel where people who have tested positive for the disease as well as travelers entering South Australia must quarantine. "We were operating on a premise that this person had simply gone to a pizza shop, very short exposure, and walked away having contracted the virus," said South Australia police commissioner Grant Stevens. "We now know they are a very close contact of another person who has been confirmed as being positive with COVID."

Brickbat: Just a Training Issue

|

New Braunfels, Texas, police officer Kaleb Meyer's bodycam shows him pull his gun almost immediately after exiting his vehicle back in January. He had just pulled Clarence Crawford over for having a dirty license plate, and he points the gun at Crawford as he approaches his vehicle. Crawford appears to be cooperative as Meyer pulls him out of the vehicle and places him on the ground. Crawford repeatedly asks why he was pulled over but gets no answer. He is prone on the ground, still apparently cooperating with Meyer but asking why he was stopped, when the the officer uses his Taser on him. Meyer then shouts at him about refusing to stop. But Crawford says he wasn't going to stop until he was at a safe place, which is what he is supposed to do. City officials say Meyer's conduct was unacceptable, and he was given additional training. He has since resigned from the department.

A police officer in Cambridgeshire, England, has been accused of switching the bar code on a box of donuts and trying to buy them in the self-checkout line for seven pence (93 cents). The actual price was £9.95 (about $13). Simon Read will face a misconduct hearing and could lose his job.

Brickbat: It's Essential When I'm the One Doing It

|

District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser is defending a trip she made to Delaware to attend Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden's victory speech. Delaware is on a list of states with high rates of coronavirus infections, and D.C required people traveling from those states to self quarantine for 14 days. Bowser and the staff members who accompanied her did not do that. She says they were exempt from the requirements because the trip was "essential." But after she came under criticism, D.C. changed its guidelines to require people coming in from those high-risk states to get tested for the virus and now only requires them to quarantine until the results are back.

Brickbat: Going Too Fast

|

Pennsylvania state police have charged Seward Police Chief Robert Baldwin Jr. with with obstruction of justice, hindering apprehension, and official oppression for coercing sex from a woman he'd stopped for running a stop sign. The woman says Baldwin pulled her over and told her to follow him to a secluded area where he told her they could "work the situation out." He let her go but soon texted asking if she'd be home the next day. She says he later came to her home, and they had sex. Baldwin told troopers he didn't remember stopping the woman, but "if you have proof, I guess I did." They say they have the text messages on his phone to the woman as well as evidence he tried to coerce sex from a second woman.

  1. Police Chief Robert Baldwin Jr. sounds like quite the pussy-grabber!

    Unless Der TrumpfenFuhrer gets the Constitution changed, He won’t He be allowed a third term (after his second term, which will happen after the courts verify to be true, the currently most plausible claims of voter fraud, as alleged by Der TrumpfenFuhrer and Minions). The courts will verify as true, the current claims that fluoridated water is chock-full of tiny little Hunter Biden homunculi (one each per each fluorine atom, with a tiny sub-atomic Hunter Biden homunculus-clone working the tiny little brain-control levers, and chucking an evil laugh), and they FORCED tens of millions of fluoridated-water-drinking voters to NOT vote for Trump!

    Well anyway, after Trump is gone in another 4 years, Police Chief Robert Baldwin Jr. has got what it would take to be our next Pussy Grabber in Chief!

    1. They already have the QuidProJoe, the uber-Fascist Mao apologist Digital-Penetrator-in-Chief-serial-sexual-abuser-elect, set to take office. Why do they need a cop? Besides they already have a VEEP that’s a Top Cop experienced in mass incarceration of Black California citizens ready to take over a few weeks into the term when Old Joe is found dead of natural causes lying in his bead with a pillow over his face and Dr Jill denying any involvement.

      These places are for real, and they will make you squeal with delight!

      1. Ha! That’s hilarious! I thought I might have been pulling off the bot parody a little too well for anyone to notice. I try to avoid Blue Ball as much as possible, the rest of the places are great.

        1. nice one, but where’s the free Range Rover?

      2. You forgot Likenzediken

    2. Sorry, reflexively flagged that as spam. That was actually a pretty good parody. My apologies that I can’t unflag.

      1. Same here — too good a parody. Apologies. Hope the Reason moderator unflags it (again?).

        1. No worries. I’ll take the flags as compliment. Also, it gives the moderators something to do since they can’t be bothered to get a real job.

  4. Baldwin told troopers he didn’t remember stopping the woman

    So he was black-out drunk at the time as well?

    1. Give the guy a break! When he stops dozens of women every day for BJs, its hard to remember each one.

  5. When the woman asked what Baldwin wanted her to do for him, Baldwin responded that he wanted what her husband gets, which the woman said she understood as sex, according to the complaint.

    She really jumped to conclusions here, he could’ve just meant no sex and good night’s rest on her couch.

    1. She could have told the cop she had a headache – – – – – –

    2. “Baldwin responded that he wanted what her husband gets”

      Not sure why he’s into getting nagged about fixing the leaky faucet and listening to her bitch about her coworkers… but everyone’s got their kinks.

      1. Me, I got a whole toilet to replace.

        1. Ya know the toilet wouldn’t even need replacing if you’d stop eating all that junk and eat the healthy meals that I slave over everyday Janice’s husband goes to the gym four days a week and you can’t even find time to take me dancing once in a while its no wonder I’m never in the mood when you’ve forgotten what the word romance means and don’t leave your tools sitting out on the table when you’re done that two-faced Diane is dropping by to deliver a PTA packet and I don’t want her thinking we’re in need of a maid service and bla with the bla bla if we ever even blabbity bla my mother bla bla bla……………..

          1. I don’t miss being married.

              1. Woah! Twice a year. Color me impressed!

                1. My nuptial cup runneth over

    3. What about a sandwich?

      1. Hope you like burnt Hamburger Helper.

    4. Maybe he just wanted to her make him a sammich and then blather on about the women at work she doesn’t like while he eats the sammich and watches football while trying to ignore her until she gets pissy for ignoring her and goes to bed early with a “headache.”

    5. “My husband likes it when I give it to him from behind with a Steely Dan #12 – is that okay?”
      (She worries the cop will say yes.)

The New York City Sheriff's Office broke up a 200-man fight club being held in a Bronx warehouse.

Brickbat: Broken Records

|

Last year, the Louisville Courier Journal filed an open records request with the Louisville, Kentucky, Metro police for all records regarding the sexual abuse of minors in the department's Explorers program by officers. The department said it did not have those records—they'd been turned over to the police. The newspaper appealed that decision, and now the department admits it did have those records, 738,000 of them, but allowed them to expire from its backup system after handing them over to the FBI. An attorney for the department insists it did not actually destroy any records because the FBI does have copies. But the newspaper's attorney says the department's move effectively makes it impossible for the media to obtain the records through state open records law.

  2. Sexual predators or not, they were on the right side of the thin blue line and deserve protection. Good team effort.

    1. Those child molesting cops are the only thing protecting us from Soros funded Black Lives Matter socialists. If a few more kids need to be buggered so we can keep our right wing authoritarian rule then we must pay that cost.

      1. Child-rapists and sexual-predators run rampant in the WhiteAntifa/bLM movement – one more reason they want to defund the police.

        No-win situation.

        1. Maybe they should recruit as a safe space for degenerates.

  3. They lived up to their motto, “To serve and protect.”

    They got kids to serve (service) them and they protected themselves. We might not like that, but the important thing is that they went home safe.

    1. I am now making more than 350 dollars per day by working online from home without investing any money.Join this link posting job now and start earning without zxc investing or selling anything.

      Follow Instructions Here……. Home Profit System

  4. This should be fairly easy – does the law require them to “not destroy” any records or does the law require them to “maintain” the records? I’ll bet the law requires them to maintain the records and if they no longer have access to the records, they haven’t been maintained. It doesn’t matter whether or not the records have been destroyed, if you encase the records in Lucite and drop them into the depths of the ocean you haven’t destroyed them either, but if they ain’t accessible, they haven’t been maintained.

    1. Picky, picky.

    2. I don’t think that’s the right framework because this is a spoliation argument, not a records retention argument. At least, that’s how it seems to me.

      If this were a corporate scenario, it would be easy. Company, you were on notice of the obligation to preserve (which the litigation over the records request would have certainly triggered). Company, you put the records in the custody of third-party X and are choosing to rely on them to meet your preservation requirements. Outsourcing of data storage is an allowed management decision, however, it does not change your responsibility for the data. Company, you have the obligation to get the data back in order to meet the production obligation. If you are unable to do so then by definition you have failed in your preservation obligations.

      Of course, it’s not a corporate scenario and governments (especially police departments) write all kinds of exceptions in for themselves. But that’s how it should be. They sent the data to the FBI and deleted their backup. Either they figure out how to get it back or they suffer the consequences of deleting it.

    3. I’m sure you’re local FFL will now be able to get away with “maintaining” copies of every 4473 on the surface of the Sun.

  5. So go ask the F.B.I. for a copy.
    What’s the big deal?

    1. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    2. The FBI’s copy of the records isn’t subject to the state law in question, and since its an ongoing investigation it probably isn’t subject to FOIA either

  6. Sounds like a criminal conspiracy, frankly. Somebody hit delete with a motive.

    1. Shut the fuck up Lard Skidmark.

  7. 738,000 records? What the heck is going on in Louisville when one police department, with one program, can rack up so many sexual abuse records that total three times the number of Americans who have died so far from Chicom-19.

    1. three times the number of Americans who have died so far from with Chicom-19.

    2. Different definition of “record”. These are almost certainly not individual incidences of abuse but individual documents relevant to an undisclosed number of abuse investigations.

      This could plausibly be the documentation behind a single case if, for example, you pulled a decade’s worth of email history for the suspected abuser or cloned his hard-drive for the investigation. Pulling tens or hundreds of thousands of documents during the investigation phase is not uncommon. The vast majority of those files will be irrelevant but unless you use modern collection tools (and who ever accused the police of efficiency), you won’t know they are irrelevant until after investigating them.

      1. Excuse me, the first sentence should read “… individual documents related to an undisclosed …”

  8. What are you trying to do? De-fun the police?

  9. Is this an example of possum fuck?

  10. I’m making up to $400 per day of TAXPAYER money burning records of sexual abuse at the local police station. If you would like to join our team, visit us at BLUE BALLS MATTER.COM. You can make killer pay and help save the careers of heroes like this…https://youtu.be/igf7aLCSswM

  11. Everyone does this. If you are ever accused of a crime or are being sued, your best option is not a speedy trial, but delay, delay, delay… And don’t hand over anything if you can possibly avoid it. The longer you can wait, the more likely you can weasel your way out of it. People forget stuff, or move or die, records and evidence gets lost…
    If your are a “deep pocket” public institution or any large business for that matter, you will delay, delay, delay, to lower the probability that you will have to pay, pay, pay…
    Sure, I hate child molesters too, but I am not surprised that this police department did what they did. In fact, it is certain that some local public or private organization near you has done something very similar in the past. I am not saying it is good, I am just saying that being unhelpful and “losing“ stuff, whoops, is standard practice, not really a noteworthy exception to the rule of law. Nobody makes it easy to let themselves get sued. If this notion offends you, find out who pulled this kind of shit last in your local community and give them hell! Seriously. Remember Oliver North and his secretary… They were pissed at him, and threatened to lock him up for destroying all those documents, but he would have been a fool to do anything different.

Norway has banned hate speech against "gender, gender identity or expression" and "sexual orientation," including remarks said in private. The law, approved by the legislature without a vote, calls for up to one year in prison for private remarks and up to three years in prison for public remarks that incite hatred, persecution, or contempt against protected groups or remarks that dehumanize them.

British actress Leandra Ashton filmed as police arrested her mother, Ylenia Angeli, 73, while trying to remove Ashton's 97-year-old grandmother from an English care home before the government's latest coronavirus lockdown. Angeli, a nurse, believed she would be better able to provide care for her mother at home. The family says previous rules promulgated to reduce the spread of the coronavirus have limited their contact with the grandmother, and that has affected her health. Police later released Angeli, but the grandmother was returned to her care home.

Lawmakers in Hawaii are looking at instituting a statewide mask mandate. As part of that effort, some officials want to give police the power to issue fines on the spot for violations of the mandate rather than wait for courts to determine if a fine will be issued. Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell says he would like to see a fine of $500 for violating any mask mandate.

Brickbat: Jesus Freak-Outs

|

The family of Lydia Booth, a third-grader at Mississippi's Simpson Central School, has sued the local school system after the principal forced her to remove a face mask with "Jesus Loves Me" on it and replace it with a plain one. The lawsuit says that the school system has allowed students to wear masks with sports teams logos and in support of the Black Lives Matter movement and calls the principal's actions a violation of Booth's First Amendment rights. Two days after the principal forced her to remove the mask, the school system banned masks that display "political, religious, sexual or any inappropriate symbols, gestures or statements that may be offensive, disruptive or deemed distractive to the school environment."

  2. Your supposed to CYA before you get sued. I guess they never saw this coming. Another example of the worth of a ‘education’ degree.

    1. It’s been 51 years since the Supreme Court decided Tinker v. Des Moines. You’d think school administrators would know by now that neither teachers nor students shed their first amendment rights at the schoolhouse door. But you’d be wrong. All administrators have learned is that they have to come up with increasingly creative excuses for suppressing first amendment rights.

        what I do………work92/7 online

  3. If its a public school, they have every right to ban religious masks. Separation of Church and State, remember?

    1. Separation of Church and State would prohibit the school from forcing the student to wear a religious mask, not ban the student from wearing one.

      1. It’s like these guys always deliberately forget the “or prohibiting the free exercise thereof” part.

        1. And of course, they always conflate a personal letter with the actual US Constitution.

        2. Yep, they always forget about the part that deals directly with the individual’s right to believe or not as they see fit. Funny how that works out.

    2. Students do not speak for the school, and so their speech is not limited by the First Amendment. The school’s new standard is impermissibly content-based under crystal clear Supreme Court precedent. The Supreme Court has allowed bans on some of those kinds of content (sexually explicit, profane, and good-faith expectation of disruption), but struck down bans on specifically political or religious content. If the school wants to ban religious masks, it must also ban ALL other messages, for example by insisting on solid-color masks. It’s not clear whether the school could allow simple designs but ban complex ones; but if they did, a cross would have to be allowed as a simple design.

      1. It’s not even clear they could insist on solid color masks. Free speech means getting to speak – even content neutral restrictions don’t pass muster unless they are narrowly tailored and survive strict scrutiny. (ie, the only thing the school can do is ban sexually explicit, obscene, etc…).

        1. I think they could easily insist on solid color masks under the same logic that allows schools to impose uniforms.

          Yes, schools must allow the opportunity to speak but that does not require granting the opportunity to speak in every possible channel. Banning all speech on clothing would be permissibly content-neutral.

          1. So they could have banned black armbands by banning all armbands? I’m skeptical.

            1. Well, you tell me. What logic allows a school to require white shirts and khaki bottoms yet would forbid a school from requiring masks to be equally plain?

              Jacobs v. Clark County School District was decided in 2008 and was not found to be inconsistent with Tinker.

          2. Which public school in the United States mandates uniforms?

            1. A great many of them do. See here for just a few examples. https://www.publicschoolreview.com/blog/uniforms-the-pros-and-cons

              Whether uniforms are effective is a matter of considerable debate. I take no position on that question. I use them only as an example to rebut Squirreloid’s contention that a solid-color mask restriction would be unpermitted.

              1. These can be easily declared null and void. Who pays for the uniforms? The parents or the taxpayers?

                In most if not all cases it’s the parents. This flies in the face of publicly-funded education. Arguably, all scholastic materials should/must be provided by the public educator. We provide pencils, papers, meals and other things to the students with government funding. Why would we not do the same for uniforms.

                This is a slippery slope indeed.

                1. I think you’re starting from some seriously mistaken assumptions. There is no such principle requiring that all scholastic materials be provided by the public educator. In almost all jurisdictions, parents are responsible for providing all pencils, paper, binders, meals, etc. Parents are also regularly required to pay for workbooks and other consumable materials even when they are mandatory for the class. Yes, there are provisions for subsidies for those who can’t afford it but that remains a tiny subset of the population in most schools.

                  Uniforms have been successfully defended even in public school settings for many, many years. Legally, this is not even a slope, much less a particularly slippery one.

                  Again, I am not saying that uniforms are a good idea. That remains very controversial. I am only saying that it is undisputed that they are legal.

    3. Go back to vox ignorant prog.

    4. Fuck off, slaver. This isn’t France. This is America.

    5. the separation of church and state means the school can not take any position on the matter….. period. they can neither endorse nor ban it.

      1. That would be a reasoned argument,and in my view the correct one, however in practice many districts simply ban any reference to religious materials.

    6. Wrong. See every other comment you got in response to your uneducated nonsense.

    7. Look, we all know that some people can be obnoxious with slogans on T-shirts, hats (BLM or MAGA or VEGAN – we all agree they are the worst right?) If the mask was causing a disruption in school, then regardless of content, it can be banned. If it wasn’t causing a disruption, principle should use discretion (i.e. his/her brains) and let it be. zero-tollerance == zero-brains

      1. Sorry, but the heckler’s veto doesn’t override the constitution.

    8. There is no such thing as the separation of church and state. Show me the legal document/ruling/etc. that separates the church and the state.

      1. There is so “separation oof church and state.” It is embodied in numerous court decisions. See: https://infidels.org/library/modern/church-state/decisions.html

        The phrase comes from a letter written by Jefferson. The bricks are “free exercise” and the mortar is “non-establishment.”

  4. Jesus should have warned her the school was going to retroactively ban His mask.

  6. What is she wore a mask that said “Allah loves me,” would the principal make an exception?

    1. That’s called a niqab.

    2. The principal would wear one with her to demonstrate cultural sensitivity.

    3. What if she wore a mask that said “Government Almighty Loves Me”? Would the class then spontaneously break into song, singing the below song?

          2. Up-Chuck, you know, it was YOUR fault that Dear Leader didn’t get or steal enough votes to stay in power! You didn’t freshen up the batteries in your MAGA-magic underwear!!! You KNEW that the power-usage levels of your MAGA-magic underwear were dangerously high, and you SLUFFED OFF!!!

            YOUR FAULT!!!! What do you have to say for yourself?!?!?!

            1. Fuck off, Sqrlsy.

  7. “Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people”

    -Karl Marx

    The progressive march through education is nearly complete comrades.

    1. Well if Karl Marx said something, it must be true. And if he believed in something it must be evil.

      Whatever.

      You are of course free to stick to your superstitions. Of course when you wonder how Biden (or tRump) got so many votes, you have to allow for the answer “magic!” – maybe it was a miracle.
      Can God vote?

      1. That does not even make sense; perhaps you can rephrase the point you are attempting to make?

      2. “Herpity-derp, sky-fairy, spaghetti-monster, I Believe In Science, Dawkins says…”

        *con_fuse9 starts madly tipping his fedora*

  8. Why does the school hate Hispanics? Jesus may be the guy that cuts her grass…

    CB

    1. Or he could be her dad’s bowling partner.

      1. Maybe Jesus is her uncle. This is her cry for help.

      2. You said it, man. Nobody fucks with the Jesus.

  9. Superstitious adults and their indoctrinated children have rights, too. That mask — like one that indicates ‘Jesus is a fairy tale’ or ‘God: Just as real as Mickey Mouse’ — should be permitted.

    Jesus is a fairy tale for gullible children of all ages; people are entitled to believe as they wish, regardless of how silly those beliefs are.

    Carry on, clingers.

    1. Fake lawyer, fake poll watcher, fake reverend.

      But ardent soup kitchen fan, you.

      1. You forgot pathetic troll who comes here only to provoke responses

        1. You guys do know that those dashed vertical lines let you skip straight to the next primary post, right?
          I would hate to think people came here just to whine – – – – – – – – – – – –

  10. the school system banned masks that display “political, religious, sexual or any inappropriate symbols, gestures or statements that may be offensive, disruptive or deemed distractive”

    Emphases added. IOW, the school system banned *all* masks. Here’s hoping they get clobbered for *that*!

    1. Yeah, was thinking when I read that, “Here’s where they will get ruled against”. Who gets to determine what is offensive or distractive? it is too open ended and subjective

  11. So years ago (decades actually) in the 90s, I returned to my alma matter as a substitute teacher. Substituting in the class room of my favorite teacher (who had since retired). This was in the heart of a very religious community.

    First hour. I see all the students wearing Jesus t-shirts. Mostly Christian rock bands, but also various other Jesus Saves t-shirts. Huh. So I asked why. Was there a big revival in town I had not heard of?

    Answer was, a couple days before someone had worn a Black Sabbath t-shirt, and the principle had sent him home to change. Grasping for an excuse to justify it, the principal pointed to the upside down cross as claimed it was a religious symbol and they weren’t allowed. So God Bless them all, the Christian students decided to wear religious t-shirts in protest. And the principal, being an upstanding member of his own church, couldn’t send the most of the student body home to change.

    But as I said, this was the 90s. Back when we still have free speech.

    1. …this was the 90s. Back when we still have free speech.

      And when kids were actually ballsy little punks willing to stand up for themselves and each other against bullshit like that. It seems like schools have done a much better job in the years since at conditioning to unquestioningly OBEY. I can’t really picture “the kids these days” (Christ, I feel old just typing that) standing up for themselves.

    2. You do know that last week all those kids voted for Basement Bunker Biden, just like they were taught in college, right?

  12. The lawsuit says that the school system has allowed students to wear masks with sports teams logos and in support of the Black Lives Matter movement and calls the principal’s actions a violation of Booth’s First Amendment rights. Two days after the principal forced her to remove the mask, the school system banned masks that display “political, religious, sexual or any inappropriate symbols, gestures or statements that may be offensive, disruptive or deemed distractive to the school environment.”

    Somehow I highly doubt that they’ll demand that students take off BLM masks despite their supposed ban on political symbols.

  13. What would the Principle have done if the mask repeated Nietzsche’s famous saying “God is Dead”?

    As a libertarian atheist who supports the US Constitution, I’ve found that religious fundamentalists and conservatives love the Constitution’s protections of their right to free speech, but not if/when those same rights apply to atheists, agnostics or others who don’t believe in Devils, Angels, Gods or tooth fairies.

    1. Actually, you would be surprised that some of us agree with you. I have frosted some of my fundamentalist friends in the fact that I do not support educator led prayer in school. Primarily because my child’s religious education is not their job, it is mine. But also the fact that when many schools do not seem to be able to teach the basics of education adequately, why would I entrust this task to them? But beyond that, I have to explain to some that if you open the door for one, you must open it for ALL religious belief (and atheism is a religious belief). That means the whole spectrum. Now if my kid is stopped from praying before their meal, snack, a big test? Well then we will have a problem, because now you are interfering with her right to free exercise. Likewise if children are having a religious debate amongst themselves. The teacher may steer them away from it, but if it is not affecting the execution of class activities, they have no authority to do so.

  14. Get your kids out of public school as fast as possible. It is a marxist indoctrination camp, not suitable for anyone except the stalinist faithful.

    1. Yeah, get them into religious schools so they can understand the world is 6000yrs old, and everything you learn in science and math is wrong, or from the devil himself.

      1. Modern public schools teach youngsters that Math and Science are white male supremacist constructions designed to keep women and minorities down. Take your choice.

      2. Back in my day, the religious private high school I went to received much higher marks in science, history, and math than the local public schools.

        And, it cost about 35% as much per student.

      3. You have no concept of Christian thought, do you? Let me give you a hand with that: The Big Bang Theory was first proposed by a Jesuit priest who, btw, suffered no consequences from the church because of it. There is a tiny minority of Christians who believe as you say, but extending this to all religious people is bigoted and wrong.

  15. “political, religious, sexual or any inappropriate symbols, gestures or statements that may be offensive, disruptive or deemed distractive to the school environment.”

    But just like BLM banners painted on streets, they were able to get their message out before the state entity realized that if you allow one message, you have to allow them all.

    1. This.

      It’s not about free speech or Tinker. It’s about the unequal treatment of people who differ in opinion and expression from the left.

Brickbat: The Best Laid Plans

|

Earlier this spring, officials at the Eastern Iowa Airport in Cedar Rapids came up with a plan to screen passengers for the coronavirus. They are still waiting on the Federal Aviation Administration to either approve or reject their plan. The plan would work similar to how some health facilities screen people before they enter by taking their temperature and asking them a short series of questions before they could board a plane. The airport would fund its implementation of the plan with $800,000 of the $23 million in CARES Act funding it received. But because the FAA controls such airport spending, the program has been in limbo for months waiting for a decision by the feds.

Brickbat: Equal Opportunity Offender

|

New York Police Department Deputy Inspector James Francis Kobel, commanding officer of its Office of Equal Employment and Opportunity, has been relieved of command after being connected to a series of posts on a law enforcement message board that officials deemed anti-Semitic, homophobic and racist. A user of the Law Enforcement Rant board called "Clouseau" reportedly used racial slurs to refer to two NYPD officers of color and referred to the city's Hasidic Jewish community using stereotypes, among other slurs. Officials say information in Clouseau's posts match Kobel's biography, including his rank and when he joined the department, past assignments, where his in-laws live and the number of parishioners of his church who died in the 9/11 attack.

Police in Berlin broke up an outdoor party, which they characterized as a fetish party, claiming that there were too many participants, and they weren't wearing masks or practicing social distancing.

Brickbat: Italy Isn't for Lovers

Four police officers in Milan, Italy, stopped a couple and issued them a 400-euro ($486 U.S.) fine for kissing in public, a violation of the nation's mandatory mask rule. The couple protested that they are engaged and have been romantically involved for two years and even offered photos and other proof of their relationship. But police would not budge on the citation.

Brickbat: Smooth Operator

|

Neptune City, New Jersey, police officer Damien Broschart has been charged with cyber-harassment and hindering his own apprehension for sexting an 18-year-old woman he'd arrested for drug charges and motor vehicle offenses. Prosecutors say he texted the woman while he was still on duty, shortly after she was released. They say he continued to text her throughout his shift and his messages quickly became sexual. The woman blocked his number, but he called her three more times from a police department line asking her to call him back. Broschart has been suspended without pay.

Brickbat: Too Late

|

Physicians in Ontario report seeing an increasing number of people with advanced cancer. They say it is a result of the government shutting down "non-urgent" health procedures, including routine cancer screenings and cancer surgeries, for three months earlier this year to reduce the spread of coronavirus. Surgeons have since begun working through the backlog of cases, but the number of cancer surgeries performed between mid March and late October of this year is 19 percent below the same period last year. In all, the number of adult surgeries was down by 51 percent in that period compared to 2019.

  1. Don’t worry, if these people die, they will be counted COVID19 deaths to make sure this never happens again.

    1. Here in the USA, Dear Leader has a BETTER idea than those stupid fucks in Cannuckistanistanistanistan! LESS TESTING, people!!! If less testing for Covid clearly works as well as it has, LESS TESTING for cancer would work pretty swell, too! It is better NOT to know!

      Also testing for death… Do NOT test for it! Testing for being dead, is showing bias against the dead! The dead are people, too, dammit!

      1. No need to run the tests, it’s a textbook case of TDS. Poor bastard.

        1. I quit working at shop rite 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 It couldn’t be happier So i try use.
          Here’s what I do……. WORK 24

      2. Fucking dumbass. How are you so jaded that you come online and project your abject jadedness onto a public forum for everyone to see ? You are such a prick here that you literally have several accounts to project how jaded and miserable you are. Like just stop and think about that dude. Some friendly advice: go the fuck away for awhile and meditate on your life.

        1. “…you literally have several accounts…” Projection? Or does your tin-foil hat need re-calibrated VERY badly? If you have secret distant mind-reading powers, please tell me the integer that I am thinking of right now, and I will gladly join your cult!

          If not? Some friendly advice: develop some humility and benevolence! Not QUITE so many people will despise your guts, that way!

          1. How is that projection when it’s literally true ?

            1. You have ZERO reasons to believe that I post under multiple names here, other than, you are fearful that (OMG!) there might be MORE THAN ONE person out there, who is capable of writing eloquently enough to persuade other intelligent and flexible-minded (open-minded) people that individual freedom is a REALLY good idea! So you engage in wish fulfillment fantasy, telling yourself that they are all one and the same, so that you and your fellow authoritarians can out-number them more easily. Good luck with that, mind-reader who failed! What’s that integer, now?

              You believe crap that is totally false, w/o evidence to back yourself up! Just like Rob Misek and the other authoritarians around here!

                1. Arrogant lies, as usual. What did you say that the integer was? Or are you going to see if you can get your tin-foil hat recalibrated, repaired, or replaced? WHERE do you buy your tin-foil hats, if I may ask? Or do you make them yourself?

                    1. I have received $17634 last month from home by working online in my part time. I am a full time student and doing this easy home based work for 3 to 4 hrs a day. tfr.This job is very simple to do and its regular earnings are much better than any other office type work.
                      See detail here…………Money90

        2. Gosh. Your arguments are weighty and profound. Like that massive turd I shit this morning. Nothing could stand against it. The plumber will be here once he finishes his donuts.

      3. Squirrely, I don’t rip on you too much, but this is a very silly analogy. Finding cancer early makes it easier to treat. Finding SARS2 genetics in people with or without symptoms really doesn’t improve prognosis and at this point we are well past the point of “stop the spread”. It has spread.

        1. “Knowledge is power”. You’ve got the sniffles today. Wouldn’t you rather know if it is the common cold, or Covid?

          I agree with you that Government Almighty is making too much of a big deal about it all, and the virus HAS spread, and there’s not a WHOLE ton of things we can do (other than masks, sanitation, and eventually, vaccines) to make much of a dent in it. Shutting down cross-borders traffic, for example, when there are plenty of cases on both sides of the border, is kinda whack, IMHO!

          Well anyway, you want to visit Granny in the nursing home soon, where they are trying to keep Covid OUT of there. Wouldn’t you like to have a reasonably-reliable test for yourself, before you go?

          “Knowledge is power”, at the VERY least, around the edges. Sometimes the knowledge is too expensive or unreliable, granted. Stuff is complicated as usual! But I’d rather have more knowledge than less, all other things being equal!

          1. “Knowledge is power”. You’ve got the sniffles today. Wouldn’t you rather know if it is the common cold, or Covid?

            Why would it matter? My doctor’s response is the same: stay home until you feel better.

            1. If you’re young and healthy, then Hoo-Ray for you, may Government Almighty Bless You and Keep you! You are (???) ~~99.8% correct, there… But you may still want to curtail your future plans, and stock up on meds that may be of special help (“Pepsid” for example from what I have read) for Covid, if you have it. As mentioned, you may want to put off visiting Granny at the old folks home.

              For obese, elderly, and otherwise specially vulnerable (compromised immune systems) it gets significantly more dicey, though. They have an extra “need to know”!

    2. Make 6,000 dollar to 8,000 dollar A Month Online With No Prior Experience Or Skills Required. Be Your Own Boss AndChoose Your Own Work Hours.Thanks A lot Here>>> USA PART TIME JOB.

  2. Ijust got up, turned on ABC news and they are already whining about the electoral collage. Didn’t watch much last night . I guess they must be worried. As for Canada and in in U.S, they never saw this coming?

  3. I bet that cancer screening seems pretty urgent now

    1. The one that my doc tried to reschedule back in March seemed pretty urgent to me, I’ll tell you. I told them that was absolutely unacceptable, and they went ahead and performed it on schedule.

      I wonder if any of those people have cause for a suit against the Canadian government for actively imperiling their lives.

    2. Many critical surgeries, include gender confirmation surgery, have unfortunately been delayed due to the Drumpf virus and our unelected president’s incompetence.

  7. They’re never going to flatten their curve if they open up cancer screenings again.

    1. Good one ^^^

    2. Ever seen a mammogram? Talk about flattening a curve!

    3. I love the stock picture here. The droid like male pointing at the clipboard looks like he’s fresh off a gay porn shoot. The fit 20-something patient is atypical, I wonder if she’s wearing pasties? And if you have 2 nurses together odds are 1 is fat and the other is morbidly obese.

      1. Yeah, I got a porn vibe from it too. The unrealistic attractiveness combined with so much bad acting and low IQ concentrated in one room. Their faces say “Like, why are there so many of us? I wonder if we’re all going to go out after. Oops! got to focus on looking more doctor-y”

      2. Not all nurses are morbidly obese. I met one that was through. Holy shit! You would htink someone in the medical practitioning field would know better, but holy shit! This person was so fat she had special shoes with shock absorbers in them. Literally. The heels were attached to the sole by rather thick steel springs. Never seen anything like it before.

        Then there was the nurse practitioner who ragged on me about my diabetes, saying I needed to lose 50 pounds or die. She had hips twice the circumference as mine despite her being a good foot shorter than me.

        Then there are the Nurse Diesels of the world. Damnit, eat a sammich!

      3. I love the stock picture here. The droid like male pointing at the clipboard looks like he’s fresh off a gay porn shoot.

        The all have a European or even Slavic look to me and while I haven’t examined every Hospital in the US, I have seen a decent amount of amateur porn from other countries. Based on that experience, the outlets seem to confirm my suspicion.

        1. I haven’t examined every Hospital in the US

          I guess it’s nominally supposed to be the Canadian healthcare system but that doesn’t change my statement really.

  8. Looks like socialism might get to claim some more victims.

    1. We have heard how our health care system is elitist. Now we see how eliminating health care is Equity.

  9. the number of cancer surgeries performed between mid March and late October of this year is 19 percent below the same period last year. In all, the number of adult surgeries was down by 51 percent in that period compared to 2019.

    See there? Biden hasn’t even been declared the winner yet and he’s already curing cancer! We knew he was going to be a much better President than Trump, we honestly didn’t know he was going to be a miracle worker right off the bat!

    /CNN, probably

  10. What’s up, you goddamn Peanuts?

    It’s a fucking tight election is what. Betting markets have pushed Biden into just a 60% favorite because he has moved ahead in WI, MI and only needs to hold AZ and that single electoral vote in NE to win.

    We’ll see.

    1. He’s behind in Michigan.

      You lost.

      1. We all lost. Giant douche or turd sandwich doesn’t matter. They’re both bankrupting us now.

        And MI has a lot of Detroit left to report. Biden is a slight favorite until Trump sicks the DOJ on several states.

        1. “We all lost”

          How you know he knows his guy Biden lost.

        2. “And MI has a lot of Detroit left to report. ”

          This is wrong.

        3. Detroit still has to print the ballots, hire a team to fill them in, “drop them off” and count. The closer the election count, the more they print.

        4. Fuck off and die, turd.

  11. Physicians in Ontario report seeing an increasing number of people with advanced cancer. They say it is a result of the government shutting down “non-urgent” health procedures, including routine cancer screenings and cancer surgeries, for three months earlier this year to reduce the spread of coronavirus.

    Gee, what a shock. Who could have seen this coming, except for anyone with an ounce of common sense?

    How does the old saying go? “Clearly foreseeable consequences are not unintended” or something to that effect.

    1. Predictable consequences are never unintended.

  12. But Canada has that magic socialized medicine like the rest of the civilized world. I was told that nobody dies in Canada due to lack of care. If only we could be like America’s hat.

    1. the number of cancer surgeries performed between mid March and late October of this year is 19 percent below the same period last year.

      See? Socialized medicine corresponds to a drop in the number of people with cancer!

Brickbat: Sign of the Times

|

A federal judge has granted Tyler Maxwell, 18, a restraining order allowing him to keep parking his truck at Florida's Spruce Creek High School. The principal rescinded Maxwell's parking pass after he refused to remove a pro-Trump display, including a large elephant statue, from the truck. "The school board has obligation to provide politically neutral campuses," Volusia County Public Schools said in a statement. "We allow political expression by students in the form of a T-shirt or a bumper sticker. But large signage is a different situation. A passerby could interpret a large sign in a school parking lot to be an endorsement by the school district." Maxwell's attorney says the school's actions violate his client's free speech rights. The judge's decision allows Maxwell to park with the display until the case is resolved.

Brickbat: Hard Work

The furniture was sitting on the lawn, his work van was parked outside, and Roy Stucker was inside a Louisville, Kentucky, home, painting it for a new tenant. That's when 10 Louisville police officers broke out the windows, stormed into the house, and handcuffed Stucker and his girlfriend at gunpoint. They held them for about 20 minutes before realizing that Stucker wasn't the man they were looking for. Stucker's attorney says that man had been arrested by Louisville police 10 days earlier and was still in custody at the time cops raided the house. Stucker and his girlfriend have filed a lawsuit against the city, claiming unlawful imprisonment.

News of politicians, police, and bureaucrats behaving badly from around the world

Douglas County, Nevada, Public Library Director Amy Dodson said a statement from the library in support of the Black Lives Matter movement was not an attack on police. But that's not how Sheriff Daniel Coverley interpreted it. "Due to your support of Black Lives Matter and the obvious lack of support or trust with the Douglas County Sheriff's Office, please do not feel the need to call 911 for help," Coverley wrote in a letter to the library. A spokesman later said that, despite Coverley's letter, the sheriff's office would continue to respond to emergency calls from the library.

Police in Golden Valley, Minnesota, used drones to see if anyone was bathing nude or topless on a secluded beach on Twin Lake. Nude and topless sunbathing is illegal, but visitors have been stripping off at that beach for decades. Police Sgt. Randy Mahlen told a local TV station that using drones to police nude sunbathing is "no different than a surveillance camera in a…high-crime area."

The city of San Diego has been paying for three years to lease the former Sempra Energy headquarters, even though asbestos issues have prevented the city from occupying the building. When a local TV station obtained documents that showed, among other things, that the city did not seek an independent assessment of the building, City Attorney Mara Elliott opened a criminal investigation of how reporters got the material. After the station posted a copy of a letter it received from Elliott's office, the city announced it was dropping the investigation.

The Chinese government has ordered Christians to remove religious symbols and objects from their homes and replace them with portraits of Chairman Mao Zedong and President Xi Jinping, according to Bitter Winter, a magazine that monitors religious freedom issues in China.

London Metropolitan police officers, accompanied by police dogs, raided a home and arrested a 12-year-old boy after someone reported seeing a black male with a gun. The weapon turned out to be a BB gun with a blue slider showing it wasn't a real firearm.

Several employees of an Arizona Department of Child Safety office were fired after a photo circulated showing them wearing T-shirts during work hours that read "professional kidnapper" on the front and "Do you know where your children are?" on the back.

A teenage boy being held at Los Angeles County's Eastlake Juvenile Hall developed enlarged breasts after being given estrogen, a female hormone, without his family's permission as a treatment for oppositional defiant disorder, according to a lawsuit.

The Phoenix, Arizona, police initially said they were responding to an emergency domestic call when they fatally shot a man in the doorway of his apartment. In fact, they were responding to a noise complaint.

  2. Why is a library, a public institution, discouraged from stating that Black Lives Matter? White supremacy, plain and simple.

    1. Why is the police department, equally a public institution, discouraged from replying that Blue Lives Matter?

      1. If only librarians and cops could work together, and kick doors for overdue library books.

        1. I quit working at shop rite and now I make $65-85 per/h. How? I’m working online!

      2. In case you’re never been to a library, they aren’t solely operated by black people. Government employees speaking in self interest is VERY different than government employees speaking in the public interest, even if you think they’re wrong.

  3. I expect Biden to order all Americans to replace their religious symbols with symbols of masks and covid.

    1. The Christian cross is a symbol of anti-Semitism because it implies that the Jews are responsible for Jesus’ death. Although, in my opinion, Pilate’s decision was the legally correct one.

      1. Joe Biden is a crook.

        2. Trump is a crook and demonstrably so.

          1. PS: Joe Biden is corrupt AF!

          2. Link??

            No. Thought so.

            1. It’s been shown that various companies he’s invested in profited to the tune of $20M (total) from decisions he’s made as President.

              The problem isn’t that he isn’t a crook, the problem is that he’s nowhere near the caliber of crook that Biden, Harris, Clinton, Schumer, Cuomo, Pelosi, or Obama (or even Bush, Musk, Gates, Bezos, etc.) are.

          3. Did you find a laptop owned by one of Trump’s kids? Didn’t think so.

  4. We’re not arresting the sunbathers, just closely monitoring the hot bodies.

    1. Infrared cameras FTW.

    2. “no different than a surveillance camera in a…high-crime area.”

      I declare this women’s locker room to be a high crime area in need of surveillance!

      *sips from Female Body Inspector mug*

      1. I imagine the cop assigned to this laughing like Beavis and Butthead when he finds some nudists.

  5. The left claims democracy dies in the darkness yet they do nothing and say nothing about China’s policies. They are frauds.

    Joe Biden is a crook.

  6. The Chinese government has ordered Christians to remove religious symbols and objects from their homes and replace them with portraits of Chairman Mao Zedong and President Xi Jinping

    The Pope immediately complied.

    1. He probably gave them the idea, better to defeat capitalism.

  7. The first and the last three incidents reported, I recall from MONTHS ago. These are really, really old things to be reporting as current items.

    The estrogen injections was an old story on October 1st, when it was released that the Juvenile Hall had falsified the consent form

    1. It’s from the magazine which is written two months before the date on the cover, so it can have time to be printed, distributed, stocked, then sit on newsstands for a full month and appear new.

      Magazine publishing trick the entire industry follows.

      Subscribers could read this a month ago, just weeks after it was written and mailed out, online or in print.

      Now it’s released to public domain, 4 weeks after that.

Brickbat: Before You Go

Qatari officials took all of the women off of a flight scheduled to leave for Australia and strip-searched them. An infant, believed to be newly born, had been found in a restroom at the airport terminal, and officials were reportedly examining the women for signs that one of them had recently given birth.
