Tucker Carlson Doesn’t Think Falling Alseep While Driving and Causing a Death is Reckless Driving…Wait What?
“I’m not trying to take anything away from the tragedy of this,” Carlson replied. “But 10 years in jail for falling asleep? It strikes me as very different from taking drugs, drinking. Has that ever happened? Has anybody ever actually gone to jail for falling asleep?”
“For falling asleep and causing a death?” Schwartz asked. “Absolutely.”
“But, I mean sometimes people — and I’m not defending anyone here,” Carlson continued. “I’m really struck by the idea that someone who falls asleep — which is something that everybody does every day, not necessarily considered an act of recklessness — does it unintentionally, nods off is a criminal.” – UPROXX
The only good thing about this interview is that Fox News had the brains to put an actual lawyer on the air to dispute everything this moron Tucker Carlson was saying. Falling asleep while driving a vehicle, not to mention a semi truck, might as well be the exact definition of reckless driving. There’s a reason most people fall asleep in a bed or on a couch: because they’re laying down not doing anything. like say, driving a car. Obviously this wasn’t intentional by the truck driver, but if you operate a vehicle and fall asleep and that act kills someone then you go to jail. In Tucker Carlson’s world I guess we’d just chalk it up a loss because everyone falls asleep. That’s like saying its OK to go out naked in public because everybody, every day, is naked at some point. But you can’t just go around hanging dong and expect not be picked up for it. Just like you can’t drive a semi truck and decide it’s nap time. Go back to Waterloo, Tucker.
Ya hear that Ed? — Wildlife officials in New Hampshire believe a bear is to blame for a series of recent car break-ins.
The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department says several cars have been broken into over the last few weeks in the same North Conway neighborhood. Officials say the likely culprit is a bear looking for food.
Terry Leavitt tells WMUR-TV () the radio was pulled out of her dashboard. The interior was ripped apart and a window was smashed. Other residents also reported similar damage.
Conway police Sgt. George Walker says it’s a common occurrence this time of year as bears stop hibernating and search for food. And the suspect description is always the same: “black and furry.”
Looks like we got some real Einsteins patrolling the mean streets of North Conway, Hampshire. You THINK bears are responsible? A bear and a human do not look similar, so if the suspect description is “black and furry” there’s a solid chance that a bear is breaking into these cars. This could be phase one of the bears eventual takeover of New Hampshire. If you’ve never been to North Conway, it’s basically just a town in the middle of the wilderness. If a bear wants to attack you your pretty much done. If I were a bear this is how I’d start the takeover. The only advantage humans have over bears is our modes of transportations. We can get in our car and drive to safety, but if it’s a foot race between a hungry bear and a fat human that bear is winning that battle 10 out of 10 times. At least we have the intelligent cops of North Conway to protect us. The same cops who aren’t 100% sure that something described as “black and furry” is a bear. Humanity is in good hands.
Psycho – “Baseball legend Tommy Lasorda is known for speaking his mind.
The Hall of Fame manager, 86, led the Los Angeles Dodgers from 1976 to 1996, coming to know Donald Sterling, the owner of basketball’s L.A. Clippers, in the process.
Sterling was banished from the NBA for life last week after audio recordings of his racially charged rants emerged. The audio features conversations between Sterling and his assistant V. Stiviano.
Lasorda was in West Palm Beach, Florida, Tuesday, picking up an honorary doctorate degree from Northwood University, where he spoke at the school’s commencement.
He also spoke with ABC affiliate WPBF-TV, discussing the Sterling situation – and his feelings about Stiviano.
“I’ve been a friend of that guy’s for 30 years,” Lasorda told WPBF. “It doesn’t surprise me that he said those things. That doesn’t surprise me. And he shouldn’t have said it, and he just hurt himself by talking too much and doing things that he shouldn’t be doing.
“And I don’t wish that girl any bad luck, but I hope she gets hit with a car.”
Well it’s official: Tommy Lasorda is a crazy old man. He’s always been crazy, but at 86 I think he’s finally reached that point where he just doesnt give a shit anymore. I do think someone should explain to him that hoping someone gets hit by a car is kind of the same thing as wishing someone bad luck. People with good luck don’t get hit by cars. I also 100% believe that Tommy Lasorda thinks he’s in the right in this situation because he prefaced his comment with “I don’t wish that girl any bad luck”. Once he said that, he felt that he was in the clear and could follow it up with anything he wanted. I do like the old school insult, though. You never hear anybody say that they hope someone gets hit by a car anymore. I hope Tommy Lasorda brings it back. A nice, solid insult that shows that you mean business. I don’t want to start pointing fingers, but if V. Stiviano gets hit by a car anytime soon, I have a good idea of where we should start looking.
Here are the facts: Helen Clements was driving throughout Longleaf safari park in Wiltshire, England with her two children when smoke began pouring out of their vehicle. But wait, that’s not the insane part. Not only did their car catch fire during a animal safari, but it caught fire in the worst possible part, the lion enclosure. The FUCKING LION ENCLOSURE. Couldn’t have turned into a fireball of death while with the zebras? Nope, fucking lions. Don’t think this was a crazy coincident either, no way. These lions had these people pinned for destruction from the word “go”. Maybe the lions were sick of the crap the zoo keepers usually feed them or maybe they were just being their normal sadistic lion selves. Either way this zoo might want to keep a keen eye on these cats, you never know when they will strike again.
PS- Everyone got out ok after the animal handlers got them out safely.
PSS- What do you think they told the people to do? Get out of the car and get mauled by lions? or stay in the car and burn. Rock and a hard place.
Q&A from Tye Sheridan and Nick Cage after their movie ‘Joe’
Source – Lauren Tannehill, wife of Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill, recently returned a rental car but forgot to remove an AR-15 rifle from the back seat. The weapon was found by the next rental car customer, a New York woman, who turned it in to authorities.
“This is certainly the kind of item you don’t want to forget anywhere, but forgetting isn’t a crime,” Broward Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Keyla Concepcion said, via the Miami Herald.
More details via the Herald:
According to a BSO report, Lauren Tannehill, 26, rented a Nissan Rogue from E-Z Rent-A-Car on Jan. 4. She had the vehicle for about two hours, then turned it in for another. That same day, Judith Fleissig, 58, of Rochester, N.Y., rented the same Rogue. She later found the gun, valued at $2,000, secured in its case in the back seat, according to the report.
“We got out of the car, we were kind of freaked out,” Fleissig told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. “I didn’t want to touch it.”
I don’t want to jump on the blonde stereotype bandwagon right away, but anytime you leave an automatic weapon in a rental car and you just so happen to be a blonde woman it’s tough not to bring it up. Now is Lauren Tannehill beautiful? Yes. Do I want to touch her hiney? Yes. Is her husband a horrible, awful quarterback? Triple yes. None of these three things can really excuse leaving that kind of gun in a rental car. I don’t know much about gun owners but Lauren doesn’t seem like the poster child for automatic weapons. I need more info on this story and I need it now. In the meantime, I’ll be perusing through pictures of Lauren Tannehill for clues. Somebody’s got to do it, and it might as well be me.
