I think the headline says it all...

Video shows train hitting Colorado police car with person handcuffed inside

A dramatic video released by Colorado authorities shows the moment a freight train hit a police patrol cruiser parked on the train tracks with a person handcuffed in the backseat.

The video, which was released on Friday by the Platteville and Fort Lupton police departments, shows how Yareni Rios-Gonzalez, 20, was hurt after officers from both agencies detained her in a patrol car on 16 September as they searched her pickup truck for weapons.

The officers were responding to a report of a road rage confrontation that involved a gun in Fort Lupton. A Platteville police officer stopped Rios-Gonzalez’s truck near a set of railroad tracks and parked the patrol vehicle atop the tracks.

The reasons why the police car was parked on the train tracks pass all understanding...I mean wtf.

I do not worry about that.

More fear mongering with the drug trade from south of the border.

The war on drugs is over. Drugs won.

Anything to deflect from the Dobbs opinion.

Here's an idea. How about a PR campaign that promotes the idea of not taking Fentanyl.

The GOP is only concerned about drugs being brought in by brown people.

They say nothing about the European pipelines.

Bama.

The family of the Chairman of the Alabama Republican Party can't vote because they believe that photo ID is the mark of the beast.

Seriously.
John Wahl has said his extended family, which lives together on a farm west of Athens, has a background in Anabaptism.

~snip~

His objection to voter ID, Joshua Wahl said, was that he believed all biometric identification, including photos that could be used for facial recognition programs, to be the mark of the beast foretold in Revelation.

“In particular, I object to the biometric nature of IDs in Alabama which started pursuant to the REAL ID Act,” Joshua Wahl testified. " And there’s a passage in Revelations 12 where it says that the forthcoming mark of the beast will be a number of a man. Biometrics by its nature is a number of a man. You know, that’s what makes me uncomfortable, and that goes against my convictions.”

Joshua Wahl also testified that he did not have a Social Security number.

They've joined with the NAACP in objecting to the law.

John Wahl himself uses a cobbled-together "photo ID" that looks official but isn't. Note the fake scan bars.

Why can't we pass a law that says anyone running for public office must be sane?

As a newly elected congress member in 2013, now-governor of Florida Ron DeSantis was one of the 67 House Republicans who voted against a $9.7 billion federal flood insurance assistance package for the victims of Hurricane Sandy in New York and New Jersey. Now, with Florida on the ropes, DeSantis asked President Joe Biden for an emergency declaration to free up federal money and federal help even before the storm hit.

Being a big fan of Commie/isolationist/nationalist (to include French) engineering and design, I gotta love that the German embassy's Reunification Day party had a photo wall that included a section of Berlin Wall and a TRABANT!

And why I included the French, an '89 Citroen 2CV. What happens when you cross a car, a fish and a Quonset hut. One of the greatest cars ever made!

Mrs. Wabash and I rode in one of these while in Havana.

Even the owner called it a coffin on wheels.

It is a Lada. A commie ripoff of the Fiat 124.

That Lada looks downright modern compared to most of them. The Dacia was the Romanian commie car and it was great as long as you kept a toolbox, some spare parts and some bailing wire in the trunk. Then came the revolution, a collaboration with Renault, and now it's one of the most popular cars in Europe. Go figure.

Hurricane Ian was a Deep State operation to get revenge at DeSantis. I mean, is it just a coincidence that hurricane season comes just before elections??? I! Think! Not! (Which... has a double meaning in this situation.)
