Guna Got Egged

This was one of the funniest things I'd seen for a long time,Gunaman was driving down Linacre Road with his window down,kids threw an egg at him and it splattered on his chest,i was trying to get a photo but the lad wasn't in a very good mood,he called me some terrible names,things i couldn't repeat,lucky I'm not easily offended lol,i think he even threatened me with violence at one time!
I had to tell him "it could have been worse,it could have happened to me".

Murder at Smeaton Street

I don't know if this is a wind up and its not funny if a person's dead but.........Bravo10 said............he was with a guy (who was a regular customer of ours) the guy went into his house then came out looking a bit shocked and asked the driver if he would go into the house and be a witness of a murder scene,our operator told him to say no and for him to get the police?

I've since had a text message that the guy was stabbed in the house took outside,shot and then took back inside the house to confuse the police...... doesent sound good to me.......i'll let you's know?

Sheriff Joe Arpaio

To those of you not familiar with Joe Arpaio, he is the Maricopa County Sheriff (Arizona) and he keeps getting elected over and over again.These are some of the reasons why: 1. Sheriff Joe Arpaio created the "tent city jail" to save Arizonafrom spending tens of million of dollars on another expensive prison complex. 2. He has jail meals down to 40 cents a serving and charges the inmates for them. 3. He banned smoking and porno magazines in the jails, and took away their weightlifting equipment and cut off all but "G" movies. He says:"they're in jail to pay a debt to society not to build muscles so they can assault innocent people when they leave." 4. He started chain gangs to use the inmates to do free work on countyand city projects and save taxpayer's money. 5. Then he started chain gangs for women so he wouldn't get sued for discrimination. 6. He took away cable TV until he found out there was a federal courtorder that required cable TV for jails. So he hooked up the cable TVagain but only allows the Disney channel and the weather channel. 7. When asked why the weather channel he replied: "so these morons will know how hot it's gonna be while they are working on my chaingangs." 8. He cut off coffee because it has zero nutritional value and is therefore a waste of taxpayer money. When the inmates complained, he told them, "This isn't the Ritz/Carlton. If you don't like it, don'tcome back." 9. He also bought the Newt Gingrich lecture series on US history thathe pipes into the jails. When asked by a reporter if he had any lecture series by a Democrat, he replied that a democratic lecture series that actually tells the truth for a change would be welcome and that it might even explain why 95% of the inmates were in his jails inthe first place. 10. With temperatures being even hotter than usual in Phoenix (116degrees just set a new record for June 2nd), the Associated Pressreports: About 2,000 inmates living in a barbed- wire-surrounded tent encampment at the Maricopa County Jail have been given permission to strip down to their government-issued pink boxer shorts. On Wednesday,hundreds of men wearing pink boxer shorts were chatting in the tents,where temperatures reached 128 degrees. "This is hell. It feels like we live in a furnace," said Ernesto Gonzales, an inmate for 2 years with 10 more to go. "It's inhuman." 11. Joe Arpaio, who makes his prisoners wear pink, and eat bologna sandwiches, is not one bit sympathetic. "Criminals should be punishedfor their crimes - not live in luxury until it's time for parole, onlyto go out and commit more crimes so they can come back in to live on taxpayers money and enjoy things many taxpayers can't afford to have for themselves." 12. Wednesday he told all the inmates who were complaining of the heatin the tents: "It's between 120 to 130 degrees in Iraq and oursoldiers are living in tents too, and they have to walk all day in the sun, wearing full battle gear and get shot at, and they have not committed any crimes, so shut your damned mouths!"Way to go, Sheriff!If all prisons were like yours, there would be a lot less crime and we would not be in the current position of running out of prison spaces.Sheriff Joe was just re-elected Sheriff in Maricopa County ,Arizona

Neil's Gone (Got Another Job)

We have now lost one of our best stars(?)Neil had some great stories and i'm going to miss him now he's left,but he did go out with a bang,i may have to start another blog coz of his many stories,heres his las one and i'll update it when i have time,Young David (gadget)who drives metro 2,was talking to John alpha 8 about vintage planes when Neil walks down the rank and joins them Dave says "i was in the R.A.F. cubs when i was a kid and my dad paid for us to go on a trip where we went up in a vintage cargo plane,it was the trip of a lifetime" then Neil butt's in "my auld fella used to fly them"John an Dave look at each other with a look of disbelief,"yer he used to fly them over the jungle and crash them (WHAT) but they had no engines in them" John getting a bit curious asks "how did he fly them if they had no engines" Neil explains,"he used to get towed into the air then they'd unhook him so he would crash into the jungle (as ye do).............You might think this story is a bit far fetched.......if i had to crash vintage planes I'd opt for the desert or the sea....certainly not the jungle....I'm going to email this to Dave and get his side of the story.
