Thursday Part Deux

Do you know who Arthur Bremer is? You probably did back in May, 1972 when he shot presidential hopeful George Wallace. "Bremer is to be released under a state program that reduces the prison time for inmates who have a prison job and maintain good behavior."

Maryland drivers and school buses: whaaaatdyamean, I hadda stop? And if you've got kids in Charles County, for god's sake, just drive them yourself.

O'Malley on the Death Penalty: "his administration isn't likely to issue execution procedures until the General Assembly has a chance to consider repealing capital punishment."

Javaughn Adams, whose trial for the Annapolis-mall shooting spree last year is fast approaching, will not be able to "revisit the crime scene to aid in his defense."

See (in the "people are effin' retarded" story), (and this is why I just park far away from wherever I want to go and get myself some exercise walking): "A Silver Spring man is recovering from being stabbed repeatedly with a screwdriver during fight over a parking spot."

A third taser-related death in Baltimore City: "Thomas Campbell, 50, after officers responded to a call on the 1000 block of Payson Street for a man jumping on a utility company truck ... Campbell ran into a nursing home basement and began acting aggressively and resisting arrest."

A juvenile escapee in Baltimore County ... (bullets didn't stop him, maybe a taser would've?)

Homeland InSecurity? Adel Abassi "pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court yesterday to helping immigrants to fraudulently obtain social security cards."

Arthur Bremer did the world a favor by shooting that racist sack of shit George Wallace. It's a pity he didn't have better aim though.

The legislature already had a chance to repeal the death penalty, and they didn't. O'Malley needs to do his job and restart executions in Maryland.

ppatin,

Check out Wallace's last term as Gov, and his final ~20 years. He changed, apologized and worked to undo the wrongs he had done.

So I can't say I agree with you on this one.

Sorry, I don't believe that Wallace's change was very sincere. Apparently his views on race were always fairly progressive (at least considering the time and place he was from) but he realized that racism won elections, so he decided to use hate to win votes. How convenient that his change of heart occured after hate-mongering was no longer politically expedient.

Yep, Wallace's changes were politically expedient, just ask Strom Thurmond's illegitimate daughter.
