MLB Is Up To Bat Next In Banning Weapons

leave a comment »

Yeah, I know what MLB is trying to do with this “weapons ban” measure. But I still think it’s funny that in a sport/clubhouse filled with BATS, there’s a “no weapons” policy.

In the wake of other sports’ trouble with guns, Major League Baseball is trying to make sure no one ever does. For the first time, MLB has posted signs in clubhouses detailing the sport’s “Weapon-Free Workplace” policy. Players and employees are prohibited from possessing “deadly weapons” – guns, explosives, daggers, metal knuckles, switchblade knives or knives with blades exceeding five inches – while performing any services for MLB.

And look at the other objects which can be used as weapons on the field.

(I would also add Roger Clemens and his infamous broken bat toss at Mike Piazza in Game 2 of the 2000 World Series, but I couldn’t find it on YouTube.)

Tenure To Life

Now about that tenure…

The Alabama university professor accused of shooting six colleagues has a genius-level IQ, yet wonders whether she has been fired from her job — a clear sign that she has trouble relating to the world, her attorney said Friday.

Yeah, because NOBODY is ever uncertain about job security.

One week ago, the Harvard-educated Amy Bishop was accused of opening fire at a faculty meeting at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, killing three co-workers and injuring three others. She is remorseful, but doesn’t recall pulling the trigger, said her attorney, Roy W. Miller. She exhibits signs of mental illness and needs evaluations, he said.

“Something’s wrong with this lady, OK?” Miller said, laying the groundwork for a potential insanity defense during a news conference.

And this is why if you ever have the opportunity to kill someone who has killed or attempted to kill, you do it. I only hope I have the fortitude to do so should some drunk piece of shit slams into my car, kills the better half and staggers out of his vehicle. If the Suzuki is still in drivable condition, and I’m able to run this asshole over, I hope when the moment comes I can lay on the accelerator. I only hope I have the gumption to take an available knife or fireharm should someone ever hold me/Mrs. kkk hostage and kill this piece of shit if given the opportunity. Letting shitbags like this live only means some sniveling defense and/or red diaper doper baby judge will do everything possible to let the perp back out on the street.

Miller said Bishop breaks down and cries during their talks in the county jail. She wants to see her four children and was worried about her position at the university.

“She said, ‘Do I still have a job out there?’ She asked me that yesterday,” Miller said. “She said, ‘Do you know if I have a job? I assume they fired me. Did they fire me?'”

Ohh, so she’s uncertain about her job AFTER killing several colleague. Well, thanks to her there are more employment opportunities at that university.
University officials have said she remains on the payroll, but her $83,000-a-year job was ending at the end of the semester because she was denied tenure.

Broussard, the district attorney, said his office had yet to review Bishop’s troubled past, including when she shot her younger brother to death in 1986. Authorities in Massachusetts ruled that killing accidental, though State Police officials said Friday they will review their agency’s investigation.

Since the Alabama shootings, questions have been raised about why Bishop did not face any charges a quarter-century ago after she fled the house after killing her brother and allegedly pointed the gun at people at a nearby car dealership’s body shop.

And this brings me back to my point earlier in this entry about thinning the herd if given the chance.
