The creature that appeared to have been a neanderthal throwback, Moatman, has been all over the news for shooting at people. How could he? Didn't he know the Righteous have banned guns? Therefore this cannot have happened.
Funnily enough, it happens all the more now that guns are banned. Oh, look, is that a gun-elephant in the room? Let's ignore him. And knife-elephant and heroin-elephant too. They are banned therefore they cannot exist. Aww, there's a baby smoke-elephant just creeping in with baby booze-elephant, baby fat-elephant, baby salt-elephant and baby cars-running-on-chip-oil-elephant. They'd be sweet, if they were real. Politicians must have very big rooms, and why not? We pay for them.
But I'm heading off on a tangent.
Moat's mother was quoted as saying 'he's better off dead'. That's not something you hear often. Usually when a gang member is knifed in the street it's always 'oh what a loss of a wonderful young person'. What a loss of a trolley collector at Tesco, more like. Yes, intelligent kids and those who show promise of a sparkling future are targeted by those whose foreheads produce waterfalls in the rain. It has been ever thus since socialism took hold. Most, though, turn out to be members of a rival gang. Not where you'd expect to find the next Einstein. More where you'd expect to find the next Reggie Kray.
Was Moat executed by the police, deliberately or accidentally? If he had his finger on the trigger, an electric shock would almost certainly make his finger muscles contract. The key is intent. Did those police fire their tazers expecting him to shoot himself, or were they trying to stop him shooting himself?
I suspect the latter. He had shot a colleague and they'd want him put away for a long time. I don't think they'd have wanted him to take the easy way out. Yes, easy way out. It's hard to get a real life sentence these days but a random shooting of a police officer would just about guarantee it. Even the dustiest-brained zombie in a wig would have to realise that if he turns on the police, his days on the bench are numbered. A few weeks of random-check stops and he'd get the idea.
The worst aspect of this whole sorry tale is the Facebook page that portrays a psychotic killer as some kind of hero. He was not Robin Hood. he just shot people and threatened to shoot more at random. Those laying flowers on the place where he died might, if he had not died, have joined the ranks of ghosts following him around. He was not fussy. If you were there when he felt like killing someone, you'd be dead.
Possibly it was his steroid addiction but he chose to take those steroids. He chose to turn himself into a caricature resembling Action Man, just as some deranged women have chosen to look like the anatomically bizarre Barbie. And yet the doctors would have delighted in him. He fits the twisted profile of human body shape that they have devised from intensive study of Marvel comics over many years. Whoops, digression again. I've been at the brandy tonight because I've been trying to sort my tax and it has a sort of wandery-brain effect on me.
Al-Jahom has a post on Moat's facebook 'fallen angel'' page. This angel fell a particularly long way and landed on spikes. It is no different to a Jack the Ripper Facebook page because he was so interested in the plight of Victorian prostitutes, or a tribute to Gary Glitter's work with children. It is sick and twisted.
Should it be banned? The Coagulation think so. I do not.
Free speech is free speech. There is no halfway. Either people can say things I find utterly disgusting or they cannot say anything without checking with me first. Free speech, however, is a two-edged sword. You cannot call me names without getting a response, and my response comes from being taught by someone well versed in twisting sarcasm into almost unrecognisable forms. Even now, I drop lines into conversation that nobody catches for some time afterwards. I once sent an Email to an ex-student with the line 'Parsley sage, rosemary and thyme?
At a subsequent meeting, she asked what that was about. I said I was asking if she would be at this very meeting.
It was in Scarborough. Obvious, surely?
Sometimes people just don't seem able to keep up. It's one of the reasons I stopped driving.
The Moatman 'Oh, he was a lovely boy, apart from the guns and the blood and the death' page disgusts me but I would never suggest it be banned or blocked. It shows what our country has become and I think the only reason the Cleggeron Coagulation want it gone is that it embarrasses them.
This is the country they have taken control of and they have no real idea how, and no real intention of trying, to fix it.
It's so much easier just to shut up the inconvenient.
Just like the last lot did.
