Peoples vs. Bank Robber

What happens when a combat vet home on leave encounters a bank robber who then threatens the vet's kids?  Typically, the robber gets the spank down, and that's what happened.  

Army Staff Sargent Eddie Peoples stopped at a bank before taking his boys on a fishing trip where said thug was encountered.  Thug was dumb enough to threaten the kids of a soldier who has probably cleared rooms in the bad areas of Baghdad and disarmed insurgents, meaning that a man with a fake pistol wasn't all that difficult to spank into submission.  (Read the article for the detailed take down, as the thug certainly qualifies for a Darwin award for stupidity, only difference was he didn't die). 

I'm sure somewhere, some sad panda pacifist is crying in their Wheaties thinking that this guy took a chance he didn't need to and that he could have been a statistic.  It is just a shame he can't even be counted amongst the concealed carry permit holders in helping to thwart crimes in progress.  Certainly Peoples' actions deserved a commendation from the police department, and not to detract from his bravery, but does the same thing happen for those who pack?  I doubt it. 

Machine Gun is Bus Stop in Soviet Russia

Stealing from the comments on this vid, I couldn't help but not post it. 

Hot Damn, THIS GUY for MD's US Senate Seat!

This guy doesn't sound like a politician.  He even comes from an agency that frowns upon anyone looking to make the leap to politics quickly after retirement. 

That is exactly what Daniel Bongion is planning upon doing, and hopefully taking and smacking the snot out of sitting Senator Cardin.  Anyone has to be better than someone who votes with his party 99% of the time (no lie). 

I have to wonder though, how a former Secrete Service member would do in the political arena, knowing a lot of the players and having to been "absently minded" ignorant of the discussions that occurred in front of them.  I guess that is why the agency dislikes people leaving and heading straight into politics, as they don't want the "ugly" to be used against their opponents. 

Like the Col. Cooper has stated...
If you're in a fair fight, your tactics suck. 
Hopefully Mr. Gongion will consider using better tactics against Mr. Cardin.  The state of Maryland certainly deserves better.  

New Meaning to Jailhouse Rock

Not that I ever want to be in jail, but if I was and I had my choice, I'd choose here.

That said...isn't cantina just another name for jail in Mexico?  I mean

Oh That's Why!

That's why there wasn't a release of the OBL burial at sea vid?!!!!  Makes sense now. 

Mr. Holder, Shouldn't You be Running the Justice Department?

And shouldn't you be managing your own BATFE and getting to the bottom of project Fast and Furious instead of running HBO and pitching new episodes (or perhaps a movie) of The Wire

This man heads the justice department but is kind enough to consider himself the latest CEO of a cable subscription channel?  If Mr. Holder wants The Wire back on the air, perhaps he could start writing the script and casting the acting slots.  Certainly he has enough time to multi-task between Fast & Furious gate or Black Panther gate to write the scripts, no?  If that's not the case, shouldn't he be helping states rid themselves of the illegal immigration problems they have?

If it is not apparent to you now, it probably never will be, but it is quite obvious that the current executive branch administration is only in this for two things: 1) Personal gain, both financially and political power wise, 2) To absolutely destroy anything with any shred of our founding as to remake us into their ideals. 

Now, Mr. Holder, would you please leave the Justice Department and start directing that new The Wire movie?  I'm sure the BATFE would thank you for getting the heat off of them that way they can go back to more Waco's and Ruby Ridge's like their sister organization instead of the current international incidents.
