A couple of recent local news stories have caused me to go "Hmmmmm." First, a fugitive was recently shot to death by police in the southern part of the state. He was a real scumbag and had actually shot a cop in the face last week. What I found interesting was that the use of deadly force was justified because he supposedly fired shots at deputies. It turns out he only had a box cutter in his possession. Oh! But he acted "menacingly." Yeaahhhhh. So how exactly does a box cutter make noise like a firing gun. Since the guy was a waste of human flesh I'm sure no one will investigate this further. Lesson: Don't piss off the cops!
The second story is that the Costco gas station where I normally buy gas had a little problem this week. It seems that someone put diesel in the unleaded delivery truck. Ooops! Fortunately I didn't buy gas this week. There are messed up cars all over the city now. Costco is doing the right thing and paying for damages. The gas company, however, are being real douchebags about the whole thing. They refuse to list the companies they delivered gas to because of privacy issues. Huh? You screwed up big time and now you won't help out the customers? Fail!
