Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Gruesome grab bag edition

Good Monday morning, everyone! We’re going to start with some new stuff and also dip into the older stuff – because there is no “sell-by” date on stupidity.

First – they’re standing their ground! (composite thread – and several were yanked by moderators for some reason)

‘I can’t believe I’ve been shot’: Last words of man killed by retired police captain (truncated)
Daily Mail Online ^ | January 13, 2014 | Daily Mail Reporter

A 43-year-old father was shot dead by a retired cop in a Florida cinema after a row about him texting his three-year-old daughter as they waited for the movie to start, witnesses said.

Chad Oulson was shot in front of his wife and horrified movie-goers during an argument with 71-year-old Curtis Reeves.

The victim’s wife, Nicole, was injured in the shooting after holding her hands out to try to shield Mr Oulson during the confrontation at a movie theater near Tampa on Monday.

After Reeves fired at his chest the victim was heard saying: ‘I can’t believe I got shot’, according to Fox News.

Reeves, who is facing life in prison if found guilty, has been charged with second-degree murder. During a hearing on Tuesday he appeared via video link, wearing a green suicide smock – a fire resistant outfit that can’t be torn or turned into a noose.

The judge ruled he should be held without bond because of the severity of the charges, but the no bond ruling can’t be confirmed until a live hearing with Reeves.


Apparently this guy didn’t like people texting in the movie theater, even before the movie started. The penalty for noncompliance with demands to cease being death.

Of course, by federal law, retired law enforcement officer who meet certain conditions are permitted to concealed carry. It’s just ordinary citizens who can be restricted from doing so in order to protect the public. I wonder who protects the public from retired LEO’s?

Hell, I would give him a noose, a razor blade, and a bottle of potassium cyanide and save the state the expense of trying and housing him.

During the hearing, Reeves’ attorney said he ‘had every right to defend himself’ after the victim threw a bag of popcorn at him.

Yeah, people are killed or seriously injured by thrown popcorn on a daily basis. </sarcasm>

I can see how this would conflict the Freeperatis’ hive mind. On the one hand, they’ve all wanted to shoot someone who pissed them off. On the other, they mostly hate cops.
Some see this as a teachable moment:

To: Repeat Offender
In a just world, he’d be hung from the neck until dead in front of the county courthouse

So far it sounds like a clean self-defense shooting. The other man threw something at the ex-cop, he felt that he was in danger and shot the man.

I’m not sure how this couldn’t be self-defense, but I’m sure they’ll crucify him.

I take the cops side in this. All the guy had to do was shut off his damn cellphone. He got increasingly belligerent and the ex-cop obviously felt threatened.

I’m sick and tired of belligerent bullies. Mean people suck. Don’t be an ass, you never know who you’re dealing with and what they have on them.

Duck Dynasty-endorsed Republican wins La. House seatWashington Examiner ^ | November 17, 2013 | PAUL BEDARD

Posted on 11‎/‎18‎/‎2013‎ ‎4‎:‎57‎:‎59‎ ‎AM by Timber Rattler

An unknown political novice who has never visited Washington, D.C., won a special election for Louisiana’s 5th District seat Saturday on the endorsement of the “Duck Dynasty” family and a promise to fix Obamacare.

Vance McAllister beat establishment candidate Neil Riser, a state senator, in Saturday’s runoff election created when former Rep. Rodney Alexander resigned on Sept. 26 to become secretary of the Louisiana Department of Veterans Affairs under Republican Governor Bobby Jindal.


The GOP-E loses to Duck Commander.

Sorry, but the liberal won. Tea Partiers don’t get ultraliberal Democrats like Cleo Fields to campaign on their behalf, McAllister did.

This whole time, I thought that FReepers supported conservatives, and opposed liberals. During the past year or so, it seems that more and more FReepers reflexively oppose anyone *accused of being an “establishment” candidate* (based solely on the fact that he is in elective office and/or is endorsed by some elected officials), and support anyone who claims to be a “Tea Partier” (even when their words and deeds are liberal!) so long as such person never has held elective office. Had Ralph Nader claimed to be a “Tea Partier” in 1984, I guess these blinded conservatives would have supported Nader over that “GOP-e” figure Ronald Reagan running for reelection with the endorsement of 99% of elected Republicans nationwide.

I hope that McAllister was only pretending to be a liberal during the run-off to fool Democrats to vote for him and thus defeat Riser (who was, undoubtedly, the preferred candidate of Republicans and conservatives in LA-05). That would mean that McAllister is dishonest and unfit to be in public office, but at least he wouldn’t have a pro-amnesty, soft-on-Obamacare, liberal voting record.

Florida Congressman Trey Radel charged with cocaine possession
Celebrity Cafe ^ | 11/19/13

Posted on 11‎/‎20‎/‎2013‎ ‎4‎:‎22‎:‎10‎ ‎AM by SoFloFreeper

Rep. Trey Radel, a Freshman Republican Congressman from Florida, hasapologized to his constituents today, sincehe hasbeen charged with misdemeanor cocaine possession.

Radel was arrested back on Oct. 29 in Washington, D.C. According to MSNBC, he was in D.C. Superior Court Tuesdayandwill have another court appearance Wednesday morning. Ifhe’sconvicted, he could be sentenced to 180 days in jail and a fine up to $1,000.

“I’m profoundly sorry to let down my family, particularly my wife and son, andthepeople of Southwest Florida,” Redel said in a statement, reports CNN. “I struggle with the disease of alcoholism,and this led to an extremely irresponsible choice. As thefather of a young son and a husband to a loving wife, I need to get help so I can be a better man for both of them.”

Radel, a former journalist, did not say he would resign, instead that he hopes to set an example for others dealing with addiction. “I know I have a problem and will do whatever is necessary to overcome it, hopefully setting an example for others struggling with this disease,” he said.


Tea Party guy…the Miami media is celebrating this today…you know, the same media that ignores the Clown’s destruction of America.

To: SoFloFreeper
I say screw the contrite route. People who apologize are NOT respected. He shouldn’t have done it. It’s weak.

Not only should he NOT resign, he needs to be arrogantly defiant. Maybe double down and smoke some weed too. I am dead serious. I am sick of all the weak apologizing. The Dems get away with being in your face defiant. It works.

To: SoFloFreeper

This is one of the little negatives as the Tea Party enthusiasm progresses. Wannabe players will toss their name around and pretend to be good-standing citizens and supporting Tea Party values.


The truth is…you generally know a limited amount of information about these characters. Maybe the majority are clean and good decent leaders. But as we see in this case…Radel was screwed up before the election process, and screwed up after the election process.

Let him resign, and let the Governor appoint some guy as a temp. That West guy could fill the seat till elections.

Bottom line…we clean up our mess and proceed on.

I guess there’s got to be some way they can blame this on the Dems…

To: SoFloFreeper

Some years ago, the Congressional GOP came up with the brilliant idea of holding members of Congress to a higher standard by forcing a member to resign if they were charged with any kind of felony. Them Democrats kept their mouths shut. When the GOP couldn’t get support to make it law, they decided to lead by setting an example and at make it a rule for members on their own side of the aisle. The Democrats kept their mouths shut. This guy is toast, just because he is GOP and must follow the others that have been forced off the Hill because of some stupid poison pill the GOP forced on itself years ago.

Agreed. You apologize for an unintended consequence or for something that was no fault of your own and you might have been expected to stop it in retrospect. One is not “sorry” when they’re doing something they thought they’d get away with…they’re caught.

Even if he is a true conservative,


he should’ve been smart enough to look around and see how many pols are obviously compromised. He should’ve not run, but instead supported a candidate who would not embarrass constitutional conservative momentum.

At this point, he probably can’t be blackmailed for his (if it’s now former) drug habit. Maybe he could finish his term with dignity and vote like a true conservative…and be part of finding a constitutional conservative replacement for the next election.

I read somewhere he supported the Dream Act. How conservative can he really be?
