In between shit talking Minnesota, Massachusetts and Mexifornia (Vermont coming soon), there is yet more bullshit in my own backyard. I'm sure you all remember the Lakewood cop killing spree. Then another one was shot down in Tacoma two weeks later. Just three weeks ago a Trooper was gunned down in Long Beach (thank the good Lord he survived). In fact, I heard that the Trooper is suing the fucker who shot him in the head. Fuck that. I'd be breaking into his house at about 3 am and POP POP!! But that would be lawless anarchy, a fun thought nevertheless.
This morning an elementary school teacher was shot dead in Tacoma. It was posted on the Fox front page for a while to my embarrassment. The cops killed the asshole about 11 miles from the scene, but the story didn't say where exactly. So I'm at my computer this morning preparing to do some work in the Frederickson area which is...doh!!...11 miles from Tacoma. I knew that I had a 1 in 3 chance of getting caught up in the traffic surrounding the crime scene where the good cops gunned down the filthy shit maggot. I say 1 in 3 because you can only go in three directions from Tacoma: North, South, and East. Go west and you're enjoying an icy cold swim in the Puget Sound.
So I'm driving down Canyon Road and...son of a bitch!!!...Troopers everywhere, Sheriff's Dept., chopper overhead (I saw the chopper from afar and knew I was headed straight for it), yellow tape, jersey barriers, news vans, the works. Yup. This was indeed the crime scene. They had shut down the Canyon Road/160th St. intersection. Luckily, I didn't need to turn on 160th. Driving by I was able to take a picture. It doesn't really capture the moment but you get the idea.
Really glad I wasn't around here one hour earlier. In fact, I delayed my trip to the area by one hour because I am a professional procrastinator. Never underestimate the power of procrastination.
I'm embarrassed of western Washington. We're just a bunch of beer chuggin' pot smokin' tree huggers. This shit aint' supposed to happen up here in what is supposed to be the mellowest region in America. I mean it's been one incident after another. WTF! Thank God for our law enforcement. Today was their victory as this is one more punk mother fucker off the streets...for good!
And to all you who have been victimized by my statehood shit talking...you may speak now. heh heh
