I just glimpsed what’s wrong with this country by chance juxtposition. Having been away from the computer all morning, I refresh FR to see this story about a man murdered by the cops, while simultaneously listening to the opening minutes of Rush chortling like a pig about professional sports.

I had the fat a$$ on too.

He was so upset about football, I expected him to start oinking.

Supposedly, this tragedy occurred in October of 2000. Also the cops had a warrant with this address on it (the warrant was wrong, but that didn’t seem to be their fault, or at least nothing in the story says they were involved with it).

They knocked on the door. The people inside said they heard the knocking, but didn’t listen. The police say they identified themselves and broke in the door. The woman doesn’t say they didn’t.

When they came in, the man shot at them with a shotgun. They returned fire. As far as I know, the woman doesn’t dispute this.

I certainly don’t expect police to go in guns blazing. But I don’t expect police to stand there when they are being shot at, either.

Also, maybe Rush just wasn’t aware of the incident.
