    The Jury was properly packed this time around

    Jury Finds C.J. Grisham Guilty Of Interfering With Police Duties - KXXV-TV News Channel 25 - Central Texas News and Weather for Waco, Temple, Killeen |

    It would appear that the jury-packing was more successful on the second go-round, as CJ Grisham was found guilty after only a single juror voted guilty the previous time:

    The jury in the gun rights trial of Fort Hood Msg. Christopher Grisham has found him guilty of his misdemeanor charge.After just two hours of deliberating, the jury ultimately found Grisham guilty of interfering with police duties when he refused to turn over his AR-15 rifle to Temple police officer Steve Ermis this past March.
    In the hours leading up to the verdict, dozens of Grisham's supporters and pro gun rights activists stood vigilent outside the courtroom awaiting a verdict in the case, and shortly after the decision was announced, Grisham spoke out giving his reaction to the jury's ruling and where he goes from here.
    "What this jury just told the people of Bell County is that the police officers around here can walk up to you and take your personal property," Grisham said. "They can take your firearms, and they don't have to have a reason for it. They don't have to tell you the reason for it."
    Throughout the trial, supporters of the Temple Police Department and the officers involved in the incident were also present in the courthouse, and many have taken to officer Steve Ermis' Facebook page to post their supportive messages backing the Temple Police Department and its officer.
    The punishment phase of the case is set for tomorrow where Grisham could face a possible $2,000 fine and up to 180 days in jail. Grisham says despite the outcome of the retrial, he will continue to fight in court with an appeal of the guilty verdict.
    If the police in Bell County think this inexcusably stupid verdict is going to give them carte blanche to seize weapons at will, well, expect a lot of dead police officers. And their moronic supporters will be surprised at how fast the cowardly bullies with badges are going to be fleeing in a panic the first time someone stands up for his rights the way the Americans at Lexington and Concord did.

    Never forget that the police are total pussies. They strut around and talk a brave game, but the moment they realize that the other side views them as fair game and that they neither outnumber nor outgun the opposition, they often show less courage than the average unarmed citizen. I don't say this on the basis of my imagination or even the poor performance of police units in military history, but based on the recent observation of their behavior under fire. Or not actually under fire, as the case may be.

    An Associated Press report published Friday says help was delayed for more than 30 minutes for the Transportation Security Administration agent who was fatally shot at Los Angeles International Airport earlier this month. Gerardo Hernandez, 39, was working at a lower-level passenger check-in station on the morning of Nov. 1 when a gunman pulled a semi-automatic weapon out of a duffel bag and opened fire.

    Two law enforcement officials cited in the AP reports said paramedics waited 150 yards away because police had not declared the terminal safe to enter. It would be 33 minutes before airport police would put Hernandez, who was about 20 feet from an exit, in a wheelchair and take him to an ambulance, said the officials, who were briefed on the investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity because the probe was still ongoing.

    For all but five of those minutes, there was no threat from the suspected gunman, 23-year-old Paul Anthony Ciancia; he had been shot and was in custody, officials said.

    A truth’s initial commotion is directly proportional to how deeply the lie was believed. When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic.

    I'm glad I don't live in Bell county any longer. This is tragic. Some people will rabidly support police right up to the point where it is their house being ransacked, their rights questioned, and their ass in the slammer. Too many police now are acting like paramilitary groups treating their community like a hostile village. Does law enforcement still have an IA section? Or is it all just CYA now?
