Another excellent reason to own a gun - in case the drive thru service is too slow.

Police in Tennessee are looking for a woman accused of shooting into a Burger King drive-thru window earlier this week.

Surveillance footage from a Burger King on Winchester Road in Memphis appears to show a woman with a black handgun firing into the drive-thru window on Tuesday, the Memphis Police Department said.

“Upon arriving on the scene, officers were advised that a female customer got angry regarding the wait time to be served at the drive-thru window,” police said.

There were four adults in the house.

There's something particularly tragic about those "sibling shoots sibling with stupid motherfucker parent's gun" stories. 

 

The child unfairly carries the burden for the rest of their life. 

 

But yeah, guns don't kill people. 3 year old kids kill people.

Jim Jefferies does a very good (and funny given the subject matter) sketch on this, the bit about having a gun for protection and having it secure really hits the nail on the head.

A use-of-force expert has told a US jury that the former police officer accused of the murder of George Floyd was "justified" in pinning him to the ground.

Barry Brodd told the trial in Minnesota that Derek Chauvin acted with "objective reasonableness".

Couldn't find the word 'reasonableness' in any dictionary, and this guy used it in a court of law

The defense closed yesterday in the Chauvin trial. There was some drama over the prosecution calling up a rebuttal witness. If the questioning went the wrong way, the judge said he would declare a mistrial. Goes to the jury on Monday.

 

As I thought, it was a Gaslight Defense - you didn't see what you saw with an interesting turn from a witness suggesting that the carbon monoxide coming out of the cop car's tailpipe could have contributed to Floyd's death. I kid you not. I think that no one knew if the car was on or off.
