Tasers = Torture

THIS just in from the No Shit Sherlock Derpartment.

"The use of these weapons causes acute pain, constituting a form of torture,'' the UN's Committee against Torture said.

In addition to its other claims for fame, the United States can now be noted for arming its police with instruments of torture for use against its citizens.

Lawyers, start your engines!



RIP: John Howard's Career

In a rout that will, hopefully, be a harbinger of things to come in the US, right wing, Bush rectal appendage John Howard, one of the true fascists of the 21st century has been excreted from Australian politics.

Thugs: Incident #8746 (a.k.a. Fuck Utah)

Reason number 5,674 not to go to Utah. Their pigs are worse than the average pigs, and they will shoot you with a Taser if you ask why you are being given a ticket. Someone please tell me what the hell that sadistic fuck is doing with a badge.

The more I watch this, the more disgusted I am. I hope that shithole of a state goes bankrupt from the lawsuit.

Feel free to contact them, I did:

I am wrting from Florida to express my disgust at the way Jared Massey, who committed no crime other than ask for clarification on a traffic citation, was tortured by one of your officers.

This man posed no threat whatsoever, and was traveling with his wife and infant child. I have never seen or heard of a more clear-cut case of police brutality.

After seeing the video I took it upon myself to read more about this case, only to be shocked to discover that this officer, whose conduct is a stain on the other men and women who choose the honorable profession of law enforcement, has not been dismissed, or even suspended.

After seeing this video, I have decided that I will never travel to the state of Utah for the remainder of my natural life, as the evidence suggests that visitors to your state are in danger of being tortured by your thugs.

Additionally, I have posted this video to my website, which provides analysis of current events to thousands of readers in just under one hundred countries worldwide.

I eagerly await the outcome of this case.

Thugs: Incident #9424

SO some guy is driving along, and he has a diabetic seizure (as in the kind that can kill you). He pulls over to the side of the road, and passes out. And then the cops show up. Fantastic, right? What a lucky guy! The cops will call the ambulance, and this guy's life is now no longer in danger.


Because he was having a diabetic seizure and unresponsive to commands, he got shot with a Taser and was booked for DUI and resisting arrest. Let me say that again. A 54 year old man, barely conscious, and in a state of diabetic arrest, got shot with a Taser, and booked for DUI and resisting arrest.

Incredibly enough, even though the police have been made aware of his medical condition, and tests show show absolutely zero alcohol in his system, the DUI and resisting arrest charges have not been dropped.

Jesus & Mary pancakes!

For those of you who have become bored with Aunt Jemima, there is supposedly a new brand of pancakes rolling out. A woman (from Florida, of course) claims to have seen an image of Jesus & Mary appear in her pancake while she was making breakfast one morning. If you don't believe her, just ask her daughter (because if her daughter said so, it's true) And her daughter said so: "Being a very spiritual person, which I am, when I saw that, I said, 'Jesus and Mary!',"

Rizzo's verdict? Bullshit. The woman is a moron. It's clearly Sonny and Cher.

Tuesday, November 06, 2007 now has a help and advice line...because we care

Dear Rizzo:

I hope you can help me here. The other day I set off for work leaving my husband in the house watching the TV as usual. I hadn't gone more than mile down the road when my engine conked out and the car shuddered to a halt. I walked back home to get my husband's help. When I got home I couldn't believe my eyes. He was in the bedroom with a neighbor lady making mad passionate love to her. I am 32, my husband is 34 and we have been married for twelve years.

When I confronted him, he tried to make out that he went into the back yard and heard a lady scream, had come to her rescue but found her unconscious. He'd carried the woman back to our house, laid her in bed, and began CPR. When she awoke she immediately began thanking him and kissing him and he was attempting to break free when I came back. But when I asked him why neither of them had any clothes on, he broke down and admitted that he'd been having an affair for the past six months. I told him to stop or I would leave him. He was let go from his job six months ago and he says he has been feeling increasingly depressed and worthless. I love him very much, but ever since I gave him the ultimatum he has become increasingly distant. I don't feel I can get through to him anymore.

Can you please help?

Mrs. Sheila Usk

Dear Sheila:

A car stalling after being driven a short distance can be caused by a variety of faults with the engine. Start by checking that there is no debris in the fuel line. If it is clear, check the jubilee clips holding the vacuum pipes onto the inlet manifold. If none of these approaches solves the problem, it could be that the fuel pump it self is faulty, causing low delivery pressure to the carburetor float chamber.

I hope this helps.
