“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”


"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

I feel dirty....

The universal truths of search warrants -

- Why do they always seem to be in a house occupied by a hoarder or a slob? If you've lived someplace six years, you might consider cleaning & unpacking at some point...

- On ever search warrant you will find porn and sex toys. Every single time. And it's never stuff you want to see, more the kind you go "Let me poke out my eye now and pour lemon juice in the gaping wound."

And don't forget the pee stained carpet and cigarette smoke stained walls/curtains.

It's funny, the two rules from our side seem to be:

You won't be given enough time to actually get to the door before it's broken down...

If you have a dog they are going to kill it.

Well, from experience I can say for search warrants I've done - 90% of them no doors are broken, and 100% have ended with all dogs alive.

Phelps said...

I don't doubt that. From what I've seen, about 90% of the precincts/departments are 99% clean, but the last 10% are 101% corrupt. I'm in Dallas, and I would say that three of the precincts are the former, and two are the latter. (Transit and all the constables are the latter.)

Of course, add "task force" to it or involve any federal agency, and it becomes 99% corrupt and 1% clean.

Umm, er, ahh, uh, Guilty?

I have never had a search warrant served on me but I am quite the slob, living like a bear with furniture, and my housemate is an hoarder like you wouldn't believe. We are supposed to get a new housemate soon who is apparently an even worse hoarder; he has four storage lockers full of stuff.

WV: dedli. I am not making this up. Yes, keeping too much stuff in yer house can be dedli.

P.s. Back a few years ago, I think it was in '04, somebody at the alt.support.autism newsgroup challenged the participants to post pictures of their living spaces. The results were quite revolting. Had I had a digital camera, I betcha I could have "won" in terms of bad housekeeping.

Auties tend to extremes in housekeeping,being either "a place for everyhing and everything in its place", or "I think I remember where I threw that." I am of the latter sort.

WV: bantryst. Why would I want to do that?
