    Why does that fucktard keep trying to come back here anyway? The only debate he should be doing is the one in his head deciding whether to breath or not to breath.
    It's really amazing just how stupid some people are.

    Maybe he's this asshole that Fort Worth has for a represenative, who I've posted about before. He is also a Cindy Sheehan supporter (surprise, surprise):

    Lege Notes: Taser talk and more

    Back in December, Rep. Lon Burnam, D-Fort Worth, filed House Bill 418 to restrict the use of electroshock Taser weapons by police only to those situations where the police would also be justified in using deadly force against a suspect.

    The legislation was prompted by an article in the alternative Fort Worth Weekly, which suggested police were using Tasers frequently, and perhaps too casually, said Burnam assistant Doug Lewin. The story, Lewin told us late last year, was disturbing, painting a picture of "rampant abuse of what seems to be the weapon of choice against minorities." So, the goal of the legislation, Lewin said, is in essence to create a statewide definition of the Taser as a deadly weapon, which would raise the bar, and thus the level of scrutiny, related to its use.

    The stupid is strong with this one.

    I have just the situation to put this jackass in with a taser and see if he makes it out alive. How stupid can people be. I might just drop this "mastermind" a line.

    Sorry , even if I had a Taser , I wouldn't be using it in a deadly force situation. News Flash- I would be using deadly force. I don't have to worry about that because my Chief doesn't want Tasers due to liability issues thanks to jackasses like Rep.Burnam.
