SERIOUS TALK: 
Okay idk if you guys have heard about this yet so I’m going to inform you about what’s going on because it’s really serious and I think everyone needs to know about this. So basically there are some sick fucking people now who have started taping and gluing razor blades around children’s parks (and on the handles of gas pumps) and placing them strategically so children get hurt. They tape them to the handles of monkey bars (so the children’s hands get sliced open), they tape them inside of slides (i think you can imagine what will happen there) and just everywhere around the playgrounds with a sick intention of hurting young kids. I know this has literally nothing to do with my blog but I take my younger cousin to the park almost every day in the summer, and I can’t imagine what I’d do if he went down a slide rigged with razor blades. So pleaspleaseplease reblog this, I think people need to see it so they can be more careful, I don’t want little kids possibly seriously hurting themselves.

Spreading this like wildfire!

I normally don’t reblog stuff like this, but I’ve got three little brother I’ve got to look out for.

I’ve got a nephew and I still would reblog this even if I didn’t know any children personally — THIS IS LEGIT.

Some sick SOB did this in Illinois, and who knows who else got the idea…. Be careful, wee ones.

There’s a special place in hell for f*kd-in-the-head jackasses who do this isht.
Reblogging this for all the parents, aunts, uncles, big brothers & sisters, and anyone out there who cares for little ones. Be aware of what’s around you. Carefully inspect the places where your children play. Keep them safe.
All I can say is, Thank God I don’t have kids! :\

Ready, Fire, Aim: The Science Behind Police Shooting Bystanders

A Saturday incident in Times Square showed yet again that even highly trained police are not always accurate marksmen

On Saturday night in New York City’s Times Square, police opened fire on a man who was walking erratically into oncoming traffic and, when approached by law enforcement, reached into his pocket as if he were grabbing a weapon. The officers fired three shots. One hit a 54-year-old woman in the knee and another grazed a 35-year-old woman’s buttocks. None hit the suspect, whom police subsequently subdued with a taser.

While incidents of police shooting bystanders are uncommon, they shouldn’t surprise New Yorkers (or anyone else) when they happen. Just last year, New York police injured nine onlookers in the course of responding to a murder suspect near the Empire State Building. As police chased the man through rush hour crowds, he fired at the cops; they returned 16 shots, hitting the man 10 times. That actually counted as accurate shooting for the NYPD.

According to a 2008 RAND Corporation study evaluating the New York Police Department’s firearm training, between 1998 and 2006, the average hit rate during gunfights was just 18 percent. When suspects did not return fire, police officers hit their targets 30 percent of the time.

The data show what any police officer who has ever been involved in a shooting can tell you–firing accurately in a stressful situation is extremely hard. In an article for TIME last year, Amanda Ripley looked what happens in the brain and body when shots are fired. The brain stem sends out signals that cause blood vessels to constrict and hormones to surge. Studies have shown that eyesight becomes narrower (literally tunnel vision) under such conditions. People who have been in gunfights describe hearing very little and perceieve time slowing down. Amid this chaos, as police officers have to make difficult, split-second decisions, humans can lose motor skills as the body reverts to basic fight or flight instincts.

Overcoming those natural reactions is the goal of rigorous training. Many police departments focus on decision-making as much as marksmanship, helping officers to decide in an instant whether to…

Delaware County Mother, Mrs. Davenport Forced Daughter To Fight

By Gabriella Sacidor, David Madden

UPPER DARBY (CBS) — A Delaware County mother is facing criminal charges after she allegedly encouraged her 12-year-old daughter to fight another girl.

Michelle Davenport’s answer to bullying? Police say she took her 12-year-old daughter to the Primos Elementary School playground over the weekend and confronted another 12-year-old girl.

Upper Darby Police released the cell phone video of the fight Wednesday.

On the video, you can hear one of the onlookers say “Do you want to see your daughter?” to Davenport.

“I don’t wanna see nothing. I wanna see her kick your a**. That’s what I wanna see OK?” she responds.

According to police, the two girls are seen punching and kicking one another and Davenport can be heard coaxing on her daughter, telling her to take down the other 12-year-old girl.

At one point, the girls wanted to stop, but Davenport insisted they go on.

“You’ve got her daughter with a bloody nose. You’ve got the other kid with a concussion, all because the mother acted like a moron. Pure and simple,” said Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood.

Authorities say 45-year-old Davenport, of Clifton Heights, was charged after cell phone video of the fight surfaced online. Police say her daughter is also facing simple assault charges and is now in the custody of her father.

Davenport is held in lieu of $35,000 bail.

The other 12-year-old was treated for a concussion and released from a hospital.

A Word About Crime and Punishment

  • I’m tired of hearing the names Sandusky and Paterno repeated everywhere. I’m tired of hearing the minute details of a pedophile’s behavior. It borders on soft core porn, and it creeps me out. I don’t even like printing their names because it adds celebrity to their names. We shouldn’t be rewarding bad behavior. Their names need to be forgotten.

What’s striking though, is that we are not holding Mike McQueary responsible for HIS lack of action. If you’re going to lay responsibility on Joe Paterno for his inaction, you must certainly lay some blame on McQueary for not going far enough.

If Mike McQueary saw Sandusky raping a child in the locker room showers, he had the obligation to try to stop it AND go directly to the police with what he saw.

  1. I don’t understand the thinking of doing anything else BUT call the police.
  2. It would never occur to me NOT to call the police.

The NCAA just passed sentence on Penn State that basically cuts off scholarship money, and all but ruins the Football program.

I’m on the fence here. On the one hand, clearly Penn State needs to pay the price. On the other hand, there’s a whole other academic section of the school that is now going to suffer because of it.

Make no mistake about it, the school will be fine. Penn State will recoup it’s fines by increasing tuition. It’s the students who will pay the price. Enrollment will go down because of the stigma, and sports programs will disappear due to underfunding.

As we strive to punish the responsible parties, we must be careful not to throw away the proverbial baby with the bathwater.

   — and Finally

  • Talk to your children about “Inappropriate” behavior.
  • Look for behavior changes in your children, as that’s one indicator of something that may be wrong.
  • Listen to your children. If your child says something’s wrong, he(or she) doesn’t want to be near an adult, listen. Find out why your child doesn’t want to be around a teacher, coach, or relative. Your children are important. Treat them as such.

Now… can I go back to being silly? Please. :)

Who Is The Real Mitt Romney?

  • "I’m Not Concerned With The Very Poor." - Mitt Romney

Before Mittens takes aim at President Obama’s statement that “the Private Sector is doing fine”, he should remember his own gaffe.

Let’s be clear on something. Compared with the Public Sector, the Private sector is doing fine. The Public Sector, which includes Cities and municipalities, are cutting their Police, Fire Fighter and Teacher jobs. The Unemployment Rate is being buoyed by Public Sector employees who are losing their jobs as part of the Republican’s Slash and Burn budget plans.

When the economy suffers, why do we always cut the three most important positions?

  • We need Law Enforcement. When the economy suffers, crime goes up. Without employment, people turn to desperate measures to feed and shelter their family. It’s cause and effect.
  • We need teachers. Education is the most important asset of the United States. Without education, we cannot move forward.
  • And do I really need to explain why we need Fire Fighters??

Why aren’t our “Elected Officials” taking a pay cut?

If our Elected Officials truly care about the budget, and “What’s Good For The Country”, why don’t they trim their own salaries?

It’s not like they’re not making extra cash on the side from lobbyists.
