Blatherings from Yetta Kurland, a Only One and

(surprise, surprise!) politician on how the peasants should not be allowed arms. But important people like her should.

And on the subject of Only Ones, God damn the brainless fucking morons involved in this; they deserve to be fired, and if not fired then placed on probation for near-terminal stupidity.
An 11-year-old Arvada boy was arrested and hauled away in handcuffs for drawing stick figures in school - something his therapist told him to do.
"Tim” is being treated for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and his therapist told him to draw pictures when got upset, rather than disrupt the class. So that’s what he did.

Last October, he drew stick figures of himself with a gun, pointed at four other stick figures with the words “teacher must die.” He felt calmer and was throwing the picture away when the teacher saw it and sent him to the principal’s office.

The school was aware that the boy was in treatment, determined the drawing was not an actual threat, notified his parents and sent him back to class.

His mother, “Jane,” however, was shocked when Arvada Police showed up at their home later that night. She says she told her son to cooperate and tell the truth, but was horrified when they told her they were arresting him and then handcuffed him and hauled him away in a patrol car.
According to the police report, “Tim” explained he made the drawing to release anger and would never hurt teachers or anyone. At first, the school did not want to press charges, but changed their mind when police called them later that night.

A juvenile assessment report shows Tim has never been in legal trouble before and is at low risk to reoffend. Regardless, he is charged with a third degree misdemeanor, interfering with staff and students at an educational facility.
Gee, Officer Friendly, decided you needed a splashy "We Protect People" arrest, did you? Or did the ball-less disgrace for a principal decide he wanted to make an example of how he adhered to Rules That Mean I Don't Have To Think Or Take Responsibility For Anythingzero-tolerance policy? And somehow a drawing the kid was throwing away became 'INTERFERING WITH STAFF'?

Congratulations, all of you: God only knows how much damage you've done to this kid FOR NO DAMNED GOOD REASON. Apparently the Arvada Police Department needs a serious upgrade in intelligence. And a really serious push for people with some fucking brains in their ranks.

Completely OT:

I'm guessing you'll like this. Several Youtube clips of a Pratt & Whitney sine bare rifling machine working.

Turn your volume down first, there's a lot of background noise
