WA

This went down a few weeks ago in Oak Harbor, WA:

Unlike the Newtown parent Bill Stevens video I posted, this one was truly off the cuff so in my opinion it was a lot better.

The pure gold starts at 2:07:

  • Councilman: “The gentleman says he carries a weapon ALL the time for protection, can you please ask him if he is armed right now?”
  • Mayor: “I guess the question is, would it matter?”
  • Councilman: “It does to me.”

Lucas-YonkmanIt basically gets 10x more hilarious from that point on, so just watch the video.  That mayor seems like a really cool guy.

Besides the gun, it would be hard to take someone like that serious.

There was some awkward silence and staring at the end.. I thought something big was going to go down.   At the very least I was hoping the robber was going to blast a hole in his junk when he haphazardly was putting the gun back in his pants.

I knew the cost of living in Seattle was high but…

When a car is reported stolen, an officer will confirm the report and get the owner’s signature on a form, Lt. Mike Edwards of the department’s investigations procedures unit said. Once that form is signed, the officer will call into the dispatch center and the information — a vehicle’s color, year, make, model, body type and license-plate number — will be tweeted to Twitter followers.

“It’s a force multiplier,” with citizens helping police see stolen vehicles and, hopefully, get them back to their owners more quickly, Edwards said.

Interesting idea if it works for them.  I could see it also working in the favor of criminals because they could just ditch a car once it has been tweeted.

No I’m not talking about a sale they are having, I’m talking about:

Lynnwood, WA – A man accidentally shot himself in the testicles at Lowe’s Home Improvement store in Lynnwood Sunday afternoon, police said.

The man’s handgun, which was in the waistband of his pants, went off at about 12:30 p.m. — an apparent “accidental discharge,” according to Shannon Sessions, a Lynnwood police spokeswoman.

Embarrassing!  That’s what you get for being a dumbass and not buying a cheap holster though ( like NY Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress also should have ).

The only accident discharge here was the one he probably had in his pants.

I’d consider this one also a negligent discharge, and not an accidental one, considering his investment in a holster could have prevented this from happening, and he would still have both of his testicles intact. I’m glad to hear that no one else was hurt.
