Interesting. Are campus security personnel trained on drug identification/detection?

One would assume a permissive search would be requested but all it says here is that nothing was found. They should have just called the cops rather than threatening to do so. I mean, what's the basis for disciplinary action here really? Just a smell of weed? That's hardly conclusive.

Pretty sure you can't claim a resonable expectation of privacy in your car, even if it doubles as your residence, if anybody can glance in without much effort and see you beating the bishop. Just sayin'.

Barely scratches the surface? $1.6M is a hell of a mea culpa to me! I'm with #4 on this one.

I mean, what else can you hope for? A heartfelt "My bad" from the police and medical personnel involved? Certainly there will be firings and serious policy review following this incident.

And Florida, wtf...? I'm a little confused on this 'fear of being attacked' thing. If the wife had time to get in the way of the weapon then isn't it reasonable to assume the retiree had time to move away after presenting the weapon?

We've been through this Stranger! Madrid is a perfectly good substitute for Schmader but it's pretty clear we'd rather do without than read Romano's gossip coloumn.

Look, she isn't bad at what she does but it's just blatently inapropriate as a subsitute!

You know, the funny thing about this wild increase in gun violence is that it stems directly from previous talk about gun policy reform. People freaked, bought up a crap ton of inventory and now we're got a greater number of assholes armed up that don't know what they're doing with a firearm.

...worst of all I can't get ahold of certain ammo with this jacked up market it's created.

Stop the insanity so I can get some range time already!!

@ 1 - Wait, your point is that he's on bond as of Monday as opposed to remaining in Boulder County Jail. That's the fallacious information?

The column only runs to Sunday dude.

"I'd just ask people to consider, if Trayvon Martin was of age and armed, could he have stood his ground on that sidewalk? And do we actually think that he would have been justified in shooting Mr. Zimmerman who had followed him in a car because he felt threatened?"

Ok, I've been staying away from this whole case because it is mired in bad decisions and racial tension but it seems to me that this statement is kind of absurd.

No, you can't shoot a dude following you in a car unless you have damn good reason to believe your life is in jeopardy. But Zimmerman wasn't said to have followed Martin in a car, they wound up fighting. Isn't the point of the law in question that the death was justified out of a belief that Zimmerman's life was in danger?

Look, I have no doubt that Zimmerman is an asshole but you can't change the facts surrounding an incident to support the shortcomings in a law and sound intelligent about it.

Geez... crazy week. Kudos to the guy who committed hari-kari over his offence. Now it only that fuck in Cleveland would follow suit...
