When you spend a lot of time in law enforcement, you start to see the bad in everyone. It’s no surprise, since we surround ourselves with criminals all day.
Then, just when you think you’ve seen it all, someone comes along and makes you wonder if it would be better if the human race just went extinct.
It was a disturbing scene in Mesa very early Sunday morning as police searched for the driver responsible for a gruesome hit-and-run.
Police are also looking for one man’s missing body part. They said the driver rammed into two pedestrians and then took off – possibly with a portion of the victim’s leg still stuck to the front of the car. (H/T – C.M.)
One has to wonder what this scrote did with the leg.
James Downey Jr., who survived the infamous Bataan Death March in 1942 and became an inspiration to his family, died Monday. He was 96 years old. In 1942, Downey was a young soldier in the prime of life, six years removed from a tryout on the 1936 U.S. Olympic swim team, when Japanese soldiers captured him on April 9.
He was put in line with thousands of other prisoners and ordered to start walking. The rule was simple, he recalled. If you stop, you die.
Godspeed, Master Sergeant Downey. Thank you for your service.

It was fantastic, by the way.
