Once A Cop, Always A Cop

UPDATE: Thomas said today he was on his way to a meeting last night when he saw people fighting in the middle of Reading Road. He saw the man with a handgun. The man had started to drive off when Thomas flagged down Fangman, who drove after the man.

Thomas followed Fangman, who got out of his cruiser with his gun drawn. The man got out with his gun, but quickly dropped it and was arrested. Fangman realized when he saw the gun close up that it was a BB gun, one made to look like a real gun, Thomas said.

The whole thing apparently started when a young man got involved in a fight with the arrested man's daughter and wife.

Thomas, who retired in 2000 after being a police officer 27 years, said all his old training came right back to him - "just like riding a bike."

Councilman Cecil Thomas, a retired Cincinnati Police officer, helped police make an arrest Monday night in Avondale. He saw a man holding a gun and flagged down an officer.

The man holding the gun was Phillip Randle, 56, of Avondale. His gun was a BB gun.

The officer was Keith Fangman, former president of the Cincinnati chapter of the Fraternal Order of Police.

Check out the story here.

You idiot liberal. You would be the first to whine when you're being robbed and you would be damn happy if Officer Fangman responded.
You stand up for scum Bill Clinton and try to demean someone who protects your worthless self who only repeats the same mantra. Get over your silly self, moron.

8:09 wingnut has some nerve calling Clinton a scum with his president Chimpy W. Bush in office. Chimpy is a crypto-fascist whose grandfather was a nazi sympathiser who helped finance the third reich.

Clinton may have gotten a BJ, Chimpy's crimes are almost too numerous to document;
-started a war with lies
-murdered over a half million Iraqis
-killed 4050+ US servicemen
-trampled on our constitution
-devalued the dollar
-wrecked the economy
-let Bin Lauden escape
-was asleep at the wheel and let 911 happen
-torturing POW's

So is the real scum? Easy answer: George W. Bush. He's the scum of the earth.

Clinton and foot tapper leave stains on society. CSI, you're an amnesiacrat if you think Clinton didn't enable Osama or Saddam.

Clinton didn't kill nearly one million people, like Bush did.

Clinton got a BJ. Get over it. Nixon, Eisenhower and Kennedy all had mistresses while in office. We don't he the wingnuts screaming about them, do we?

Bush is the worst, most disasterour president in our nation's history. And he is worse than the scum of the earth.

Anonymous idiot 7:48, not one man was released early from the county jail in the 1st quarter of 2008. Not a single one. Try some new misinformation to spread.

One million people? I can tell you're on the Left Coast, because your statement is outlandish.
I guess Clinton indirectly killed some people by his total neglect of pertinent incidents like the USS Cole. Of course, when he had the chance for the CIA to take out Bin Laden twice, he was too busy and/or too chicken to give the assasination approval. As we all know, that caused thousands of innocent Americans to lose their lives.
One million people??? Get a grip.

As of late 2006, the Iraqi dead were estimated to be at 655,000.

http://www.cnn.com/2006/WORLD/meast/10/11/iraq.deaths/

That number came from our own allies, the British government's Ministry of Defence (not a renown 'liberal' group):

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/politics/6495753.stm

Add to that at least another 24,000 Iraqi civilian deaths in 2007:

http://www.news.com.au/dailytelegraph/story/0,22049,22999215-5001028,00.html

Plus, 4050 American service men and women killed in Iraq and the 50,000+ the war dead in Afghanistan.

And then of course there is the 3000 people that the Bush (mis)administration let die in the World Trade Center, when they ignored the urgent intelligence memo on August 6, 2001 entitled "Bin Laden determined to attack inside the U.S.".

http://www.cnn.com/2004/ALLPOLITICS/04/10/bush.briefing/

Highlights of the report include:

• An intelligence report received in May 2001 indicating that Al Qaeda was trying to send operatives to the United States through Canada to carry out an attack using explosives.

• Information that Al Qaeda had been considering ways to hijack American planes to win the release of operatives who had been arrested in 1998 and 1999.

• Information that bin Laden was set on striking the United States as early as 1997 and through early 2001.

• Intelligence suggesting that suspected Al Qaeda operatives were travelling to and from the United States.

• A report that at least 70 FBI investigations were under way in 2001 regarding possible Al Qaeda cells/terrorist-related operations in the United States.

While Chimpy sat reading the goat story for those long minutes while our nation was under attack, you can see the guilt all over his face. The total deaths that this incompetent war criminal neocon is responsible for is upward of one million human beings.

How proud you 19-Percenter chickenhawks must be.

BREAKING NEWS: BUSH IS THE OST UNPOPULAR PRESIDENT IN AMERICAN HISTORY.

http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/05/01/bush.poll/index.html

"A CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey released Thursday indicates that 71 percent of the American public disapprove of how Bush is handling his job as president.

"No president has ever had a higher disapproval rating in American history; in fact, this is the first time that any president's disapproval rating has cracked the 70 percent mark," said Keating Holland, CNN's polling director."

WAY TO GO RIGHT-WINGERS!

Your normal girlie blah, blah, blah.
Then you follow up with your traveling companion, the head up his rump Idiot. How cute.
Not working on your business today after you've been in LA all week; must be a turnkey operation.
Mr. Bush doesn't watch the polls to make his decisions just like another great Republican, Ronald Reagan.
You seem to want to minimize Wild Bill's antics as being incidental, but his skirt chasing delayed him from taking retaliation against our sworn enemies when he had the chance. In the words of the Rev. Wrong, We all know those Clinton chicken decisions came home to roost.
