What makes you totally enraged? What really gets your goat? What do you want to vent about at this moment? This is a free vent for all, no subject is prohibited and anything goes for discussion, whatever suits your fancy!
The unneeded looting, rioting and out and out killing in Ferguson, Mo. I am a Caucasian and I do not apologize. Neither can I help it. But I wanted to appeal to the civil-minded protesters by asking three simple questions:
1. If the tables were turned, and an African American police officer had shot ME down, would my funeral be on CNN?
2. You, the civil-minded, peaceful protesters want change and justice you say, but does the violence, looting, burning and killing get that accomplished?
3. Do you want the Caucasian police officer to be fired and Executed in public?
You tell me.
I must be missing something here.
Well, they just extended the excessive heat warning that was supposed to lapse this evening through tomorrow and likely into Thursday. It's really flippin hot - I'd love a little break from that, but aside from that I can honestly say nothing is really troubling me. At least in 110 heat indexes I can jump in the pool to cool off. It beats -30 wind chills we had last winter by a long shot, so I shouldn't complain too much I suppose. It is still mighty uncomfortable though. Oh and wasps are building a nest in my bedroom window; that kind of sucks.
What really just chaps my hide at the moment and is related to current events. If I hear or read another person say that a police officer can "shoot to wound" or "Should have shot him in the leg" I am going to reach through the internet and b*tch slap them.
It really just irks the crap out of me that someone who A)Has never served a day as a police officer or in the military and B)Gets their notions about police work form the movies and TV thinks that the things they see in entertainment are things that are actually possible, legal and taught in law enforcement in this country.
Sorry to burst your bubble but, Heather Locklear throwing her baton at a suspect is NOT a technique taught at the police academy.
Can't think of anything to complain about, not sure I have ever been totally enraged, and I still have my goat.
Goats are awesome!!!!
I started posting on Zujava over a week ago and I'm still in the petting Zu.
That really gets my me.

Another example of unreasonable (and therefore unlawful) force being used by a police officer who was evidently away on the day they covered "de escalation" at the academy.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R46-XTqXkzE

Are police officers really that nice or is that guy who helped a homeless person an exception?We live in a society in which by you are judged by what you have and not by who you are. We usually look down on poor people and disregard the homeless. I'm usually only used to cops who ticket you and are...
