Owners of Breaking Bad house erect fence in effort to prevent throwing of pizzas on roof

Only in America!



Tourists making a pilgrimage to Albuquerque, NM and visiting the (Breaking Bad) house, in which unexpected drug mastermind Walter White once lived will, no longer will be able to snap the photos they seek and will probably also have limited opportunities to toss pizzas onto the unassuming abode's roof, as was famously done on the show.

The owners of the single-story home are fed up with the constant tourist traffic and impositions, and are constructing a giant, six-foot-tall wrought iron fence to guard against the attention, local KOB4 News reports.

"We don't want to gate ourselves in," homeowner Joanne Quintana told KOB4. "We're the ones who's being locked up." But with "hundreds" of visitors passing by over some weekends, they've decided it's time to make a change.

Two Baltimore police officers accept disciplinary action even though they supposedly followed policy

in the arrest of Freddie Gray. Hmm, seems suspicious to me...

Two Baltimore police officers agreed to be disciplined for their roles in the arrest of Freddie Gray, an attorney for the officers said Tuesday.

Garrett Miller and Edward Nero "do not believe they violated any policies, procedures or practices of the Baltimore Police Department" but they accepted the disciplinary action to move on and continue their careers, said Michael Davey, an attorney for the Baltimore police union.

Davey wouldn't say how the officers would be disciplined, and police spokesman T.J. Smith said he could not comment on it. Smith did say the two officers are on active duty and are currently assigned to the special operations section, which includes the aviation, marine, mountain, K-9, SWAT, traffic and special events units.

Nero and Miller were among six officers criminally charged in Gray's arrest and death in 2015. They are the only two officers who have so far been punished for their involvement, more than a year after the criminal cases collapsed. Gray sustained a spinal injury in a van ride -- driven by Officer Caesar Goodson -- after he was taken into police custody on April 12, 2015, by Nero and Miller. Gray died on April 19, 2015. The 25-year-old man died after his neck was broken in the back of a transport wagon while he was handcuffed and shackled but left unrestrained by a seat belt.

My head is about to explode!!!!

Just saw this posted on Facebook by a right-wing friend of a friend:

"Yeah, if we could only get registered Democratic voters to stop killing people, we'd be in great shape."

Show this to a right-winger. Start a heated debate...
