Sean Aranas

Continuing in the series of cops who should be arrested let’s look at Sean Aranas. Or maybe he should be Sean “Are-an-anus.”

So what did “Officer Anus” do. It seems, from the endless viral videos, that he “robbed” local food vendor Beto Matias. You can see it here, here, here, here, here, here, and here. But wait, it’ll be OK because campus police are “looking into it.” Most folks
“get it” that you give a guy a citation and run him off if he doesn’t have the required permit. If he doesn’t move along you run him in (although arresting someone for this seems a bit counterproductive). But snatching the guy’s wallet out of his hands and taking out the cash, that was just dumb- even if it was legal.

Everyone on the planet has at least one cell phone capable of uploading real-time video. “Officer Are-an-anus” should be fired not for what he did- it was probably legal, but for being so stupid as to not realize the way it looks while he’s being a first rate dick.

If you can’t drain, dissemble.

It’s almost cliche now to note that POTUS is minimally competent, that he lacks direction, that he’s generally a fool and buffoon. But this week has been spectacularly bed. At a time when there’s massive devastation to US territories from monumental storms he’s more concerned with:

  1. excoriating professional athletes (not sure why this should be governmental let alone a presidential concern)
  2. engaging in an ongoing Tweet war with with a 3rd-world despot who is just another intellectual pigmy (ironically Kim and Trump seem to be emotionally and intellectually made for each other).
  3. and taking cheap shots are local government affected by storms.

I know we all keep hoping for some form of presidential behavior from POTUS. But I think we’re all just going to be disappointed.

Jeff Payne

If that name sounds familiar, it should. He’s an arrogant prick who’s the reason why everyone should be very afraid of the police. But he’s not just arrogant, he’s stupid. He threatened and then arrested a nurse, Alex Wubbels (nee Shaffer), at a a Salt Lake City, UT hospital.

The essence of the incident is that PAYNE wanted blood from a patient for an alcohol level. Wubbels told him no (see also here). Wubbels was right. Taking the blood without a warrant is illegal.

PAYNE is apparently too stupid to know that the warrantless procurement of the blood would be inadmissible in any legal proceeding. Or, worse, maybe he’s not stupid he’s just a fascist who thinks the rules don’t apply to him. PAYNE insisted and threatened Wubbels despite being informed by a hospital attorney that he was making an unlawful demand.

Wubbels was arrested and promptly released. We should all be afraid of “police” like PAYNE. Everyone in Salt Lake City should be pressing for his prosecution.

Tom Price- frequent flyer

POTUS campaigned with a promise to “drain the swamp.” We all knew it was more hot air from a pathological liar with tiny little fingers and the only drainage would be from his genitals. It appears that POTUS has instead been replacing the swamp water.

Tom Price is above commercial air travel. Price thinks he’s still a doctor and it’s OK to jet around and make unnecessary appearances at worthless meetings. No doubt he’s also making the connections he’ll need when it all melts down and he’s forced to find a “real” job.

POTUS Explained

Sort of. A recent post titled:

The President of Blank Sucking Nullity

by David Roth over at the Baffler is a great read. It’s a very nice prelude to other reports that Trump has realized that people actually hate him. Thin-skinned, short-finger, self-centered bullies, like POTUS do value the adoration of others. But it’s rarely enough to cause meaningful change from his basic pathologic behavior.

Does she listen to her husband?

It’s almost unfair- picking on someone so overtly flawed. But she brings it on herself. The First Lady (Trump-ette?) addressed an audience at the UN this past week. She spoke on her favorite topic bullying.

Yes, it’s ironic, possibly outright moronic, that the bride of the world’s best known bully is speaking out against POTUS’ favorite pastime. Yes, POTUS’ favorite pastime is bullying. We need only look at his public humiliation of Sessions (and here) and Comey.  Or how about encouraging abuse of arrestees. Or just the hazing and torment of his staff.

Among the best lines:

No child should ever feel hungry, stalked, frightened, terrorised, bullied, isolated or afraid, with nowhere to turn…

Perhaps, it’s just that Trump-ette feels that it’s OK to bully or threaten adults? But, children are off limits as the target of such overtly juvenile behavior. See goes on:

We must teach each child the values of empathy and communication that are at the core of the kindness, mindfulness, integrity and leadership which can only be taught by example…

By our own example we must teach children to be good stewards of the world they will inherit.

We must remember that they are watching and listening so we must never miss an opportunity to teach life’s many ethical lessons along the way.

Is she clueless? Oblivious? Simply stupid? Or more likely is this her was of standing up to the man who probably makes her daily existence a pure living hell. I’m hoping for the latter.
