They're going to enforce the law one way or another.

Personally, I prefer the $50 bunny suit over the $50,000 video surveillance system with several more technicians to mind it to get the same results.

If this is what really set you off, I've got some links that will make that harmless looking mole on your neck explode.

NBC fires producer over edited Zimmerman 911 call
By Wendy Carpenter | The Upshot 6 hrs ago.. .

A producer for NBC News has been fired for editing a recording of George Zimmerman's call to police the night he fatally shot Trayvon Martin.

The New York Times is reporting that "the person was fired on Thursday, according to two people with direct knowledge of the disciplinary action who declined to be identified discussing internal company matters."

The dismissal of the Miami-based producer, whose name has not been publicized, followed an internal investigation by NBC, which led to the network apologizing earlier this week for having aired the deceptive audio.

The recording aired on NBC's "Today" show on March 27, when the audio viewers heard suggested that Zimmerman volunteered to police, without provocation, that Martin was black: "This guy looks like he's up to no good. He looks black."

But the tape had been edited, and the portion where the 911 dispatcher specifically asks Zimmerman if the person in question was "black, white or Hispanic," was deleted.

The conversation that actually occurred between the dispatcher and Zimmerman is as follows:

"This guy looks like he's up to no good. Or he's on drugs or something. It's raining and he's just walking around, looking about." Then the dispatcher asked, "O.K., and this guy is he white, black or Hispanic?" To which Zimmerman replied, "He looks black."

After that phone call on the night of Feb. 26, Zimmerman fatally shot Martin. The 17-year-old Martin was unarmed, and Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer in Sanford, Fla., told police he fired in self-defense after Martin attacked him.

Since then, it has been debated if Zimmerman was racially profiling the teenager, a notion the edited version of the tape reinforces.

The Times reports that NewsBusters, a conservative media monitoring group, first reported NBC's discrepancy on March 30. The following day, NBC told The Washington Post that it would investigate. On Tuesday, NBC said in a statement that its investigation turned up "an error made in the production process that we deeply regret." The network promised that "necessary steps" would be taken "to prevent this from happening in the future" and NBC apologized to viewers.

No steps were specified, but the New York Times reports that the next day "a Miami-based producer who had worked at NBC for several years" was fired, and "people with direct knowledge of the firing characterized the misleading edit as a mistake, not a purposeful act."

On Thursday, Reuters cited an unnamed NBC executive saying "The "Today" show's editorial control policies -- which include a -script editor, senior producer oversight, and in most cases legal and standards department reviews of material to be broadcast -- missed the selective editing of the call."

Staff members at NBC News, who had been working on the Trayvon Martin story for weeks in Florida, were initially "in shock" over the altered tape, and later furious, another source told Reuters.

Reuters also reports that "NBC News executives interviewed more than half a dozen employees during their investigation."

On Saturday, the "Today" portion of MSNBC's Web site posted a Reuter's story on the producer's firing.

Actually, that one sits just about right....that the producer got fired.

It's hard enough to figure out what the hell actually goes on in these cases without some overambitious industrial strength dooshpump cutting and pasting audio to make the story fit the conclusion.

That's some dangerous *spoon* he pulled. Misleading millions, selling out journalistic integrity for a juicy, manufactured, "scoop" that never really existed.

Steps up on soapbox..dusts off mic


When I lived in San Diego..I lived in an area called Northpark for awhile..it was an incredibly dangerous area for pedestrians..

even with huge crosswalks with signs and lights..it seemed like once a month someone was run down in the crosswalk on the corner from my house.

The cops set out a car near the intersection..no luck helping while officers sat there a man in a wheel chair and his nurse aid were mowed down..

so as a test they had a guy in a bunny outfit like that with three "handlers" escorting him across the street and recorded driver..after driver..after driver..ignoring the 25mph speed limit..ignoring the flashing lights and signs..and IGNORING a nearly 7 foot tall brightly suited easter bunny..

not only did they give out like 50+ tickets that day but poor officer bunny nearly got hit three times by ignorant drivers...

this was a very wide well marked crosswalk..people who are too stupid to drive..should ride the bus

If you drink or do drugs before getting in your car
if you blow through crosswalks/stop signs/yellow lights
If you do not yield to emergency vehicles or you honk and act like an azz when I pull over for an ambulance coming through
if you are driving so fast you have to weave around folks ignore posted limits
if you do not use a turn signal
if you talk on your cell phone,text message,watch videos ,play phone games
if you shave,put on makeup,comb your hair, clip your nails
If you have a huge "go box" in your lap and are steering with your knees while chugging a 44 oz soda and stuffing a burger in your face
or do any other thing but pay dam attention keep your eyes on the road and drive like a person is supposed to drive..

you suck period you are supposed to be driving
I have no problem with them writing tickets for each person they see ignoring the business at hand (driving) while doing something else...or speeding



on the whole I want the roads to be safe for myself my kids and my grandkids. I don't care if they catch them dressed as a playboy bunny..

just get the dangerous people like the ones who killed my brother and sister in law..and the ones who have killed at least 1/2 dozen people I know in my life
Paula and Ronnie (my brother and sister in law)
Tony(best man boss I ever worked for)
Dave(good friend killed by drunk driver two days after graduation)
Jessica(friend from work didn't make it in one day because of someone in a hurry)
Charlyann(wife and mother friend for years)
Rabbit(on a motorcycle )
B.A.(on a motorcycle in same procession as Rabbit hit by dummy trying to weave around a group of motorcyclists)

like the guy who hit me head on and left me for dead (with 26 stitches and 17 staples and glass and metal imbedded all over my body)when I was 16 totalling my vintage maverick
the guy who hit my ford escort head on(when I was 24) and then sideswiped as he left the scene of the accident not caring if one of my small children were in the car or if I was alive or dead...
If you like to speed..go to a racetrack..otherwise you are in a hurry to kill yourself or someone else
If you are driving without a license or without insurance..then go get some
if your license is no good because you have a DUI etc..too bad you should not have driven like a doosh..

the road should be cleared of all the trash for the law abiding good folks

And he should never work again in that business. Let him wash dishes for a while, but no that's not what set me off. Neo Nazis patrolling the streets and thugs beating an innocent tourist up and afterwards the crowd stripping him of his belongings. All that and the Pope wearing a funny hat, put me on overload. It's just too much. People suck.

In a traffic related story..

My friend Micah was a waitress and as she left work one night..she was tboned by a car who hit and ran..she was thrown from the car..than ran over by her own car and one other car. But not seriously (miraculously) injured. It was one of those things where being thrown from the car was a good thing..because her car continued to be pinballed around until it was a pancake.

Anyway, she is laying in the middle of Dale Mabry highway in Tampa Florida and myself and other people on the sidelines rushed out to pull her from the middle of the road.

A middle aged man, clean cut nice looking says "I am a police officer we need to get her to the hospital!" He directs us to his car grabs her purse from the road and asks us to bundle her into his back seat. I stop and ask the bartender aside "How do we know he is a cop?" He asks the "cop" for id..he looks around..jumps in his car and takes off(stealing her purse but thankfully not her which was evidentally his intentions) The real police show up etc and she was fine but who knows what would have happened if we had put her in that car!

The couple who hit her initially were followed by witnesses when the cops got the their house they had both started drinking large amounts of alcohol and said they finished a bottle and took a few pills because they were soooo upset by the accident...(but most likely covering their buts for being on drugs and drunk in the first place) They claimed they fully intended to go to the police the next day and turn themselves in because they thought when they saw the cars driving over Micah..they had killed her and were terribly upset..

They suck
