Phil Spector and the Police (not a new band, new criminals)
I completely forgot to do a blog yesterday.
Took the dog to the groomers, ran some errands, did a little writing, took a nap, went to a party that I couldn't find...saw a movie that was actually worse than Limits of Control (it's that new horror flick called "Drag Me To Hell"...it's what I felt like watching such a crappy film).
And since I'm ready for bed, I thought I would just write a bunch of thoughts on various things I heard today.
-- Phil Spector got 19 years in prison. This is the best news ever. I'm so used to idiotic jurors letting people (literally) get away with murder. But what made me feel so wonderful about this, was something his son said. His new wife, probably one of the few women that hadn't had a gun shoved in her face, said that she would go and try to prove her husband was innocent. Yeah, right. Until the money runs out and you find another rich guy. But anyway...Phils son said that he had mixed feelings, because on one hand he was losing his dad. But on the other hand, justice was served. What a relief, to hear someone finally believe that someone in their family committed the crime. Hats off to that gentleman, for saying something that probably helped the victims family immensly. And showed a touch of class.
-- American Idol and every other TV show, tried to create some drama. There really wasn't any. The only thing accomplished was AT&T got press out of it.
Adam Lambert is being classy about it, which thrills me, as his dad is also a classy bloke and a guy I consider a good friend (even though he loves two crappy movies: Crash and Brazil).
-- I heard a story about a white cop shooting a black cop. The kicker: the black cop was breaking into his car and fled the scene (if I heard the story correctly). I'm all for cops shooting someone that runs from a scene, but as of now, they aren't allowed. So, this cop should do some serious jail time.
-- Another cop stopped an ambulance. The ambulance driver (black) tried to tell the cop (white) that a woman (black) was sick inside and he was rushing to the hospital. This was all on film, with the womans son filming. The cop was just barking about the ambulance not "yielding" when the cop approached. Luckily the woman ended up being okay.
Now, didn't officers learn anything from that football player a few months ago? When there are medical emergencies, they really need to pull their heads out of their butts. Maybe it's the cops that need to be rushed to the hospital for this emergency surgery.
If there's an ambulance, what would make the cops think they don't need to speed or break a few laws? I mean, this isn't the Cannonball Run, where Burt Reynolds and Dom DeLuise (with Farrah Fawcett pretending to die) raced across the country at 120 mph.
I'm always supporting the police. Especially when they get involved in these shootings and other idiots write about the victims as if they were really victims, instead of the criminal scum that they usually are.
But all the cops mentioned in the above scenarios need to be fired.
And all the police stations across the country, need to have an hour long meeting. Get all the cops in a room. Provide some coffee and donuts (I know..that was lame, going for the easy cliche joke, but so what...I'm pissed).
Explain to the cops, that they have to really do a better job of sizing people up, before amping out.
