A car being driven by somebody fleeing the police for a traffic stop hit a family vehicle, killing 4 of the 5 children and injuring the other child and parents critically.
Why do the police continue high speed chases? How many of these incidents have to happen?
Law enforcement , from the beat cop to the Supreme Court, needs a different M.O. We have created a nation of gangsters with our prison system, and now the police are chasing people for minor infractions - causing fatal accidents.
Enough already. Who the F#@k is managing these people?

I watch the Obama's administration's disgusting power grab of healthcare with morbid fascination.
Anybody really think this is about providing "healthcare" for fat, drug taking, hard drinking, tobacco using, driving without seat belts, unsafe sex practicing poor people? Really??!!
I come from that segment of society, and I can assure you that no one in government gave a rat's ass about the people from my father's family's south Philly or my mother's family's Bronx neighborhoods. Zip. Zero. Zilch. Bupkiss. Nada. Ugatz.
But it looks good for rich, Harvard lawyers to appear to care about the "poor".
The sad fact is, FDR's social policies increased the population of the "poor" (and thank heavens, or I might not be here), and now the new FDR's are preaching to their choir - the choir of their creation - for the purposes of their peculiar agenda.
George Orwell’s most pointed criticism of political leaders was their misuse of language to further their wicked agendas. He exposes the outrageous abuse of words in 1984 and Animal Farm. The ruling elite manipulate the language as an instrument of control over the masses.The U.S. is not in bad enough shape, according to the Obama Administration. What we REALLY need is to spend $36,000 PER PERSON for a "healthcare" plan the rest of the population does not want or need.
“The great enemy of clear language is insincerity. When there is a gap between one's real and one's declared aims, one turns, as it were, instinctively to long words and exhausted idioms, like a cuttlefish squirting out ink.” George Orwell
The intelligentsia understands that the masses can be manipulated with convincing talking points and misleading slogans. Politicians never tell their constituents they are doing some pork barrel spending. Every dollar of new spending is spun as “investment spending”. We have evidently made $11.6 trillion of “investments” in our National Debt. Somehow we enacted “campaign finance reform” and still manage to spend $1.3 billion on political campaigns. Our beloved numbskull Vice President Joe Biden said last week, “We have to go spend money to keep from going bankrupt”. President Bush said, “I’ve abandoned free-market principles to save the free market system”. President Obama insisted that the only way to save our country from catastrophe caused by excessive debt was to borrow $700 billion and spend it on infrastructure projects, of which only 3.5% was allocated to our crumbling infrastructure. During the Vietnam War a U.S. Major declared, “It became necessary to destroy the village in order to save it.” In 1947 the government changed the name of the Department of War to the Department of Defense, as we today have garrisons of 100,000 troops in 117 foreign countries. The Department of Homeland Security, Patriot Act, and War on Terror are all deceptive titles and slogans purposely meant to hoodwink Boobus Americanus.
“In our age there is no such thing as 'keeping out of politics.' All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia. The very concept of objective truth is fading out of the world. Lies will pass into history." George Orwell
President Obama and his cronies hammer away that 47 million Americans are uninsured. It is a lie, but that does not deter them from continuing to make the claim. The latest Census report says that within the borders of the United States as of 2007 there were 45.65 million people without health insurance. But this number included 9.73 million foreigners, leaving only 35.92 Americans who were uninsured. Among the uninsured in the United States there were also 9.1 million people making more than $75,000 per year who did not choose to purchase health insurance. Therefore, we are imposing a trillion dollar solution for 28 million people who are poor and uninsured. That is $36,000 per person while imposing a huge invasive bureaucracy on the lives of the other 278 million Americans. The masses believe the lies.
(BTW, anybody want to refute Mr. Quinn's math? Have at it.)
The U.S. had a shot to elect Ron Paul. I get ill that we past on the opportunity. Then we had a chance to elect a 1 term, very unpredictable, war hero president. Mr. "Unpredictable" would have at least given us a shot. Now we are stuck with a bunch of guys that have never worked for an honest living (sorry, but if you have not carried a lunch box to work on a cold morning, or sweated it out on a hot roof in summer, or met payroll by the skin of your teeth, or paid back ALL OF YOUR STUDENT LOANS from the sweat of your brow... you don't know what an honest living is. That would sum up Obama, Bernake, Summers, Geitner, et al...). McCain might have been a "Republican", but after the way he conducted himself as a POW he had street cred... but, no, the Republicans rejected Paul in favor of McCain, and then the people rejected McCain in favor of the Wizard of Change, President Kum By Ya.
But let's be truthful. Which people? After all, not everyone voted for Kum By Ya. No, KBY was able to cobble together enough folks by combining nearly 100% of the African American votes (I would say the very definition of racism is voting for or against a candidate based solely on the color of their skin), with 100% of the gay and lesbian vote, 100 % of the pro-abortion vote, and a huge majority of the coastal elites, and folks looking for something for nothing or a continuation of their time on the dole - including the AARP set, who are getting FAR MORE in benefits than they paid in at the expense of people now in their 30's and 40's (people in their 20's will likely get what they paid in... not much).
Sorry, but it is going to be tough to beat that at the polls until the system falls apart. That is why I believe that the Republicans will survive in name only, and even the name might not make it. The Democrats are going to run the table until the dice can be rolled no more, and they are going to bring the U.S. down like a rock in a pond.
Let me give you an example, one of the many "why"s that you won't read in our slanted press.
The Liberal Democrats, for reasons completely unclear to me, have made NO EFFORT WHATSOEVER to reign in the far flung military empire of the U.S. Wouldn't those resources be better off spent here in the U.S. rather than defending South Korea, Germany, Japan, et al? Didn't KBY's supporters claim he would shut down the empire and bring the troops home? OK, where are they? The same place they are going to be when President KBY leaves office, unless we have some kind of currency crisis first.
I have no f^&*%^$$ing idea. But there they are, and there they will stay until the bitter end.
OK, Liberal Democrats, where is the effort to employ poor people on the public dole for food stamps in gardens of their own? Why no poultry houses and dairy barns on the grounds of public housing projects? Why no funding for shovels and picks and seeds and greenhouses?
Why? Because Heaven forbid, these folks might learn to care and think for themselves, and the Left can't have that. Before you know it, this constituency that the Left depends so much upon might also begin DIY projects on their homes and find gainful employment trying to turn a (GASP!) profit - and that is out of the f$%#@ing question.
So, relocalization types, don't count on a great deal of help from the party you adore.
It just isn't in their best interests.
