“He made an error…”

“He made an error.  How many errors are made in an operating room every week?” queried Sheriff Stanley Glantz.

Can you guess what that error was and to whom the Sheriff is referring to?

One guess:  it has something to do with a bad guy (black), a good  guy (white), and then a dead bad guy (still black).

In Oklahoma.

So if you didn’t hear about it, and I just cannot go into details as I am having less and less tolerance for these sorts of stories, the coffee is almost gone, and the school bell is about to ring, read on for my synopsis (snarky, slanted and biased as it may be, but this is my damn blog, so there you go).

Suffice it to say, there was a criminal (black–I know, right?) who was apprehended, but who then ran (sealed his fate right there, because as we learned last week, if you run, you die) and who was then MISTAKENLY shot with a gun, not a Taser, as the Reserve Deputy Sheriff stated.  “OOPS.”  (Actually, that’s not a direct quote, that’s my literary license again.  I have no idea if he uttered “oops” or not.  Probably should have.  Along with a HUMONGOUS, GINORMOUS, OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD mea culpa to the victim’s family.)

So, you ask, what in the sam hello is a “Reserve Deputy Sheriff?”  Yes, I had the same question.  Not to mention the fact that he is 73 years old.  Not hatin’ on the geriatric crowd mind you.  Just wondering what he’s doing on a takedown, shakedown, high-stakes gambit like an undercover sting.  I mean really, does the phrase ‘living vicariously’ mean anything to anyone.  Anyone?  Anyone?  (Name that movie.  Tee hee.)

Except there really isn’t anything funny or tee hee about this.  A man died because an old fart (sorry, let’s call a garden implement by the correct term, shall we?) SAYS he made a mistake and THOUGHT he was grabbing his Taser and grabbed his gun instead and killed a man.  Killed him dead.

And then.  And then, the esteemed Sheriff from above responded with the completely asinine, inane comment referenced above.  He’s equating a surgeon with a wanna-be cop.  Mmm-hmm.  Yeah, I’m seeing that.  Crystal clear.  Roger that.  Over and out.  What the BLEEP ever.

And.  And.  It seems that this 73 year old wanna be got to be a “Reserve Deputy Sheriff” because he gave all sorts of money and stuff to the department.  Sort of bought his way in, in a manner of speaking.  Or writing, to be technical.

And.  And.  It seems there might be some brou-ha-ha brewing about the wanna be’s records as they pertain to being trained and certified and checked off on the weapons.  Or something to that effect. The Tulsa World is doing the investigating.  I got this morning’s disgusting and depressing information from here:http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/report-robert-bates-training-records-falsified

Another bad guy (black) dead.  Another good guy (white) killed him.

Yay Amurica.  Doing really well here these days.

Good grief.
