I been busy , moving house, buying another car and generally vegetating. Every now and then, mainly every day I have a rant about something but today I have a few to share.
Chief Dunce award would go to the parents from New Jersey who complained a store would not ice their sons name upon his birthday cake. Come on, surely they can't be that daft to not know naming their son Adolf Hitler would cause some mumblings along the line in the little guys life. Yes it is every parents right to name their offspring as they choose but in extremely bad taste to name one after a most despicable man of history. I am even more amazed that they were allowed to register the boys name as such. The one to suffer in all of this is the child, the parents are full of their own importance. Bunch of idiots. No other way to describe them. The above picture describes them to a T.
Late last week Victorian Police shot and killed a 15 year old boy at a skate park. Allegedly he was waving two knives around at various members of the public and threatening police. It has been reported that the teenager was sprayed not once but twice with capsicum spray to no avail and yet he continued to threaten the police. The police involved say that when he advanced toward them waving the knives around, they opened fired and subsequently the boy died. There has been calls for the supposedly non lethal tasers to be issued to members of the police force. A very sad time for the family and friends of the young man, and dare I say just as devastating for the police involved. If one can forget for a moment the age of the young man involved, how else would you expect the police to act if a person was threatening to harm others with a just as lethal weapon? It only takes one wrong move and anyone close enough including the police could of been harmed or killed. The law is the law and if you can run amok and threaten people with weapons, then you expect to be dealt with until you are stopped. What would the outcry of been if any perpetrator was allowed to continue and possibly maim or kill another. We can ask what if for eternity but on that fateful day, what if didn't come into it. The situation was dealt with for there and then, not what if. Nothing will bring the young man back and the grief for his family would be immeasurable.
