Federal addresses the .22lr shortage

Idaho court: No constitutional right to share your city water with non-paying neighbor

I can't agree with this decision.  If I wanted to water my neighbor's lawn, fill their pool, or put out a grass fire with water that I get billed and pay for, I should be able to do that.  It is a separate issue that, in this case, the neighbor in question was not paying an outstanding debt to the water company.

Would the sharer have also been fined if his neighbor had come over to his house to get a drink or do their laundry?  What if they had gone to the YMCA to shower and the coin-op laundromat? Would they also be liable?  At spokesman.com:

A Spirit Lake man has lost a court appeal challenging a city fine he received for connecting his neighbor to his city water service via a hose, after the neighbor had been cut off for non-payment. Michael Freitas charged that the city couldn't constitutionally bar him from making a charitable gift of the water to his neighbor by running a hose across the alley. But the Idaho Court of Appeals, in a unanimous decision, upheld an earlier Kootenai County jury verdict that left Freitas with a $500 fine.

Attkisson: Border Patrol Says They’re Told 'Let as Many People Go as Possible'

At breitbart.com:

“Whether spoken or unspoken, there is a policy coming from the top, that they’re basically to be very lenient and try to let as many people go as possible, that’s what they think, that’s the message they think they’re receiving,” she stated on Thursday’s broadcast of “The Laura Ingraham Show.” She added that agents she has talked to believe “they’re being told not to do the job.”

Attkisson also reported that some of the court dates being given to illegal immigrants in the United States are for dates in 10 years, reporting, “I spoke to a member of Congress, if I understood him correctly, who said some of the court dates being given are 10 years out.”

1000 yard shot with a 9mm revolver

Jerry Miculek takes aim at a target 1000 yards downrange.  Ok, so he doesn't hit the balloon but does get close enough to pop it with fragments.  Still, holding over 150 feet above the target, this is amazing.

Salt Lake police shooting sparks large protest for victim: a dog named ‘Geist’ | Liberal Logic 101

Sad.  And infuriating. liberallogic101.com:

Hundreds of people protested in front of the Salt Lake City Police Department Saturday to demand justice for the victim in a controversial police shooting — a 110-pound dog named “Geist.”

The gray Weimaraner was loose in a fenced-in backyard June 18 when he was shot dead by a police officer who was searching for a missing boy. Police said the dog was shot after he approached the officer in an “aggressive manner.” The boy was later found sleeping in his home.

The protest included many dog owners, who brought their pets. The protesters held signs that read: “Shoo not Shoot,” “Man’s best friend should not be gunned down,” and “My pets are my family.”

“It’s overwhelming, the support of the community,” Kendall said. “That makes the loss of my best friend a little bit easier to deal with.”

Officer Brett Olsen shot the dog, named Geist, in Kendall’s fenced-in backyard on June 18 as police searched for a missing 3-year-old boy who was later found. Police have said Olsen used lethal force because he felt threatened by the dog. The incident is being investigated by the department.
