Happy Headlines

Why be a downer over the holidays? Let’s hear some happy headlines about men acting like men and idiots acting like idiots!

L.A. firefighter accused of vulgar act in protest over vaccine mandate

The Los Angeles Fire Department is investigating an incident in which a firefighter “responded inappropriately” after being handed a letter to comply with the city’s vaccine mandate, a department spokeswoman said Wednesday.

The LAFD member responded to receiving the noncompliance letter by dropping his pants and wiping his buttocks with the letter, leaving fecal matter on the document, before dropping it to the ground, according to the Stentorians of Los Angeles City, a group representing African American firefighters.

Definition of ‘stentorian: “extremely loud”. A BLM affiliate should be the last organization to complain about the existence of a shit stain.

The situation underscores the deep resistance among some within the Fire Department over the city’s mandate that employees be vaccinated.

No shit, Sherlock! Well, maybe there was a little….

The city has sent vaccination compliance notices to workers as part of the city’s new vaccination mandate. Workers who have yet to get vaccinated or seek exemptions are supposed to sign notices that instruct them to provide proof of vaccination by Dec. 18.

Workers who refuse to sign those notices will be taken off duty and their pay halted as they await a notice of “proposed separation,” according to a memo that was sent to city departments by Garcetti.

The vaccination mandate has prompted angry outbursts for months from some in the Fire Department.

Now calm down, Mister Based Firefighter Hero, and tell us how you REALLY feel.

A newly formed group called Firefighters 4 Freedom is suing the city over the vaccine rules, while a firefighter’s YouTube video criticizing the mandate went viral in August.

At the same time, some employee groups want LAFD Chief Ralph Terrazas removed amid accusations the department isn’t addressing harassment and bullying, particularly of female firefighters.

A recent survey found that an overwhelming number of firefighters lack trust in their leaders, while many in the department are frustrated with perceived inconsistencies in how top brass discipline sworn members.

I don’t have any time for the mass protests that are catching all the current attention… but I have lots of time for people who publicly use notices of vaxx compliance for toilet paper!

Defiant Eateries A Test Of County Powers

Dead Tree Edition of Los Angeles Times, 26 November 2021

Again and again, public health inspectors returned to the Italian restaurant at the Westlake Village shopping center.

They found Novo Cafe serving diners indoors and out, despite a Los Angeles County order forbidding it during the worst wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to county records. Over and over, they handed out citations with a $500 fine.

Westlake Village is posh enough that the Cafe can probably afford that fine. Especially if they’re the only choice in town for normal dine-in.

Hold that thought… they ain’t been paying nothin’!!!

As of early November, Novo Cafe had been fined $86,000 for scores of citations–and none of those fines had been paid, county officials said. It had gotten more than 90 citations by the middle of November, according to the public health department…

In February, the county revoked the restaurant’s public health permit. Noro Cafe stayed open. This summer, co-owner Massimo Forti told an MBC4 news crew who filmed unmasked workers in the restaurant that he saw adhering to the mask requirements as a “sign of submission”.

YES! WAY TO GO, MASSIMO!!!

Shira Shafir, an associate professor at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health, said that “given the politicization” around COVID-19 rules, some businesses “will just choose to get the fine and remain open.” She added that public health agencies with limited staff and resources may weigh whether “the juice is worth the squeeze”.

This is how you do it! No wars or protests, JUST DO IT!

Another repeat violator was Cronies Sports Grill in Agoura Hills, which received more than 80 citations for violating COVID-19 orders between December and July, according to county records. In December, it hosted a protest against a county ban on outdoor dining.

“It’s not a political thing; it’s a right or wrong thing. It’s a common-sense thing,” restaurant owner Dave Foldes was quoted in the Acorn newspaper. “Let us keep our business open. Let us keep our livelihood.

Alas, Dave, it IS a political thing and the loss of your livelihood is a priority of the Plandemic. But you’re doing the right thing, defying it! More than most people are doing.

[A] county lawsuit against [restaurant] Bread & Barley alleged that a public health inspector was threatened and cursed at by a representative, who followed the inspector out and blocked the person’s vehicle with his truck. At one point, after police officers had been called in, restaurant owner Carlos Roman told them he was desperate.

“You guys all got a paycheck, right?” Roman says to the officers and inspector in a video of the incident posted online. “She doesn’t,” Roman says, referring to his restaurant manager. “The cook doesn’t.”

And that’s why business owners should not fear the reaper. You’re going to lose if you comply; you’re going to make some money then lose if you don’t comply. Hmm.

County officials said the health inspector faced threatening phone calls and protests at his office, leading the Department of Public Health to hire security personnel, after Roman posted to Instagram a department citation with the inspector’s information.

Better get used to being treated like Nazis, you Health Nazis. You don’t get to destroy innocent peoples’ livelihoods for fun & profit and then get to sleep safe at night. Don’t blame me; I’m just a messenger. You fuck with them, at some point, they’ll start fucking with you.

As an aside, I’m spending Thanksgiving in Los Angeles myself. The City went full-on vaxx lockout but as it turns out, going to a restaurant in L.A. County-but-not-City is easily doable. All those in-city restaurants are losing massive profits by checking peoples’ papers.

Join the dissidents! You have nothing to lose but your chain stores!

Roman, in turn, said in an interview that he had received an outpouring of support after confronting the inspector.

Now for a Florida Man story!

‘Girl tried to kill me’: Biker tells police after shooting librarian accused of pointing gun at him

Hmm, yes, what HAVE those librarians been doing for the Plandemic? Getting pregnant and picking fights with biker gangs, apparently….

ORANGE CITY, Fla. — Police [in Orange City]  say 36-year-old Sara Nicole Morales had the intent to hit a motorcyclist on Volusia Avenue after some kind of incident and then took off. The motorcyclist was not seriously hurt. He then followed her, along with several witnesses to the hit-and-run, and one of those witnesses called 911.

Sounds like he was riding with friends. Most passers-by wouldn’t head into trouble like that, although they were in the right since she…

“The lady just took off and left. What kind of vehicle was it? It’s a blue Kia,” the caller said.

…just committed hit & run.

Police say the motorcyclist and others were trying to get Morales to stop but that she refused. She turned onto east Wisconsin and drove a mile or more to her home with the hit-and-run victim and several others in pursuit.

Police say Morales ran inside and came back out with a gun. On the call, you can hear Morales briefly yelling at the motorcyclist and then gunshots.

According to police, multiple shots were allegedly fired at Morales by the hit and run motorcycle victim, after he claimed she pointed a gun at him. Several of the witnesses backed that up.

“Why did he shoot her?” the operator asked.

“Because she pulled a gun out on him,” the caller replied.

The motorcyclist, having a valid Florida concealed weapons permit, drew his concealed handgun and fired multiple rounds, striking Morales, a report says. Morales was transported to Halifax Hospital where she succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced dead.

Morales’ handgun was recovered on scene.

According to a police report, the man told authorities when they arrived: “That girl tried to kill me, she pointed a gun at me.”

Police say he remained on scene and has been cooperating with law enforcement. So far, he is not being charged. Detectives say they are still investigating, but they are treating this as a case of self defense. Neither Morales, nor the motorcyclist have any previous local criminal history.

Morales left behind an 11yo and a finance per other accounts. A single mother.

Sara Morales worked for Volusia County as a library assistant. The county closed the Deland and Pierson libraries to give staff at both, who she worked with, time to grieve.

Or celebrate, more likely. Evidence thus far says her personality was, perhaps, not as sunny as Florida’s climate.

Glendale officer uses Taser on man holding knife; man falls, stabbing himself in the neck

h ttps://www.azcentral.com/story/news/local/glendale-breaking/2021/11/24/glendale-officer-man-with-knife-injured-after-officer-uses-taser/8752512002/

I thought this sort of thing only happened in bad Chuck Norris movies.

A Glendale police officer and a man are injured after the man pulled out a large knife, held it to himself and the officer used a Taser on him, causing him to fall on the knife on Tuesday.

Officers responded to reports of a “suspicious” fire just after 6 p.m. When officers arrived at the scene, they spoke with a man who was engaging in “odd” behavior, according to police spokesperson Sgt. Randy Stewart on Wednesday.

The body camera footage released Wednesday shows the unidentified officer speaking to the man.

After officers began to speak to the man, they found out that he was associated with the burning home.

The officer can be heard telling the man he cannot go back into his home: “You can’t go there, it’s not safe.”

Sounds like a drug house, if there’s a guy wandering around it acting strangely then wanting to go inside while it’s burning down.

The officer then directed the man to grab a water bottle and move down the street away from the firefighters. The man instead decided to dump all of the water on the ground.

“Now maybe we can get out of their way so they can do their job,” the officer said.

The man put the empty water bottle into a mailbox as the officer continued to direct him.

“Three more hours of this until shift change,” thought the poor cop.

After returning to the officer’s side, the man pulled out a knife. As soon as the officer saw the knife, he tried to grab it from him.

“Not another police defunder off his psych meds,” thought the poor cop.

The officer can be heard saying, “Let me have the knife. Put the knife down.”

The man did not comply and walked away from the officer. The officer reported that the man had a knife and then told the man to “put the knife down now.” The man instead held the knife close to his chest and neck.

The officer then pointed his Taser at the man and told the man to put the knife down before using the Taser.

The man began falling to the ground, so the officer lunged to grab him, appearing to cut his own hand in the process. The man hit the ground. The officer attempted to roll the man over to grab the knife.

“The knife is in his neck,” the officer said.

Oops. Problem solved!

A firefighter approached to assist the officer and saw that the knife was in the man’s neck. The firefighter managed to roll the man over onto his back by dragging him.

The video cuts with the man in a fetal position, the knife still stuck in his neck.

The man was eventually treated for his injuries and transported to a local hospital despite not initially allowing paramedics to treat his injuries.

Oh, right, they had an ambulance on standby ten feet away because there was a house fire in progress. Thus did Dindu Muffin survive his own best efforts to win a Darwin Award.

Cheers and enjoy this holiday weekend! The world won’t end until Monday because that’s when the news media will have time to cover it… after all the traditional, heartwarming stories are told once again, of Florida Man bagging a big one and wrathful micro-tyrants getting disrespected.
