Monday Made Me Laugh: Happy Plane Happy Pilot

If the JSF competition had gone the other way military aviation might be a more jovial place.

Backlit



I'm no photographer but I think someone is doing something deliberate with the lighting here. More not safe for point and shoot below the break.

BeCosplay It's Friday and the Year is Almost Over

More not safe for dungeons full of demons below the break, and bonus nerd points for recognizing characters.

What MOS?

Is wheel chock? Or does someone's sergeant need to enunciate?

Friday Bacon

Doing this at the "Ground Zero Mosque" would of course be hideously wrong and very politically incorrect.

What MOS Rating?

To make sure the captain's gig has enough berthing space?
Updated title thanks to Kurt P.

Tuesday Tapp, Rack, and Bang

 Just a thought to law enforcement officials, do you know who would be a good set of people to not have on the sidelines right now? All those constitutionalists tea-partiers that you've been bad mouthing as a threat. As it turns out actual threats to civil society have come from far more traditional sources. More not safe for mob justice below the break.

Stereotypes

What a horrible, horrible, horribly true stereotype.

Signs that You Might Be in the Wrong Neigborhood.


Troubling

This is gonna ratchet up the paranoia of police officers, take appropriate care:

Off-Duty Police Officer Shot Multiple Times in North St. Louis

I wish I knew a good answer to the growing us vs. them attitude in what should be citizens on patrol, but it doesn't bode good things. With everyone in such a rush to share every facet of their lives there is less privacy about who does what for a living anymore. One comment by someone about "my friend's dad is a cop and should arrest that creep" and someone with even mild motivation can backtrack to a home address, family description, or a picture of the new car you're so proud of.

This is would only be worse if it involved a less mercurial type of criminal, one who was willing to embrace the whole plata y pluma shakedown could have an entire municipality in his pocket  and the citizens left to fend for themselves.

I Want to Believe

I'm with Miguel on this one, I don't believe it but I want it to actually be true. The world would just be a more magical place.

Blue Falcon Racoon Strikes Again.


Now We Know

So the police/national guard first stand back holding the looter's coats, then they demand that volunteers abandon the most effective and safe places to protect a business because it upsets the "protestors".


So now we know who's side they come down on. I'm sure Clayton didn't have a single police rifleman doing something as offensive as being on a rooftop.
So how is something necessary for officer safety but completely unacceptable for civilian safety?
