Prince George's County Police at it again


It seems to me that this is a story that keeps on going, new chapters added all the time. PG County police continue to show that they are just a bunch of incompetent thugs. First we had that idiot who was their 'Homeland Security' guy, who shot 2 delivery guys in his house. And there have been more chapters added to the story, but I just read about this new one today.

The Washington Post has an article about a  case against a citizen being dropped by the county. The case claimed that the poor fellow assaulted a police office. Turns out, the video in the police cruiser shows that was not the case, and it clearly shows that the police assaulted the driver. Add to that the 'culturally sensitive' office mocking the drivers Latino accent, and you have a couple of stellar represntatives of the PG County police department.

So, can some one  explain to me why this continues to happen in PG County, and why the cowardly county officials cannot stand up to the goons who claim to be serving the publicS? What does the police union think of this? Oh yeah, I know, they have a tough job, and they have to face danger all the time, etc. But, come on, slamming a hand-cuffed and pepper-sprayed guy against the car, and beating him about the head with a baton is a bit over  the top, don't you think?

Why did the FBI stop their oversight of the goon squad? I think it is time to bring that back on, and for starters they should fire the police chief. Then, throw these 2 jokers in the slammer.

What are they trying to do - Kill off Test Cricket?

These days we have been having some intense Test matches. See the recent Test series between Australia/South Africa, Australia/India, India/England, West Indies/England. Great cricket, fierce competition, and results.

And then we get this farce between Sri Lanka/Pakistan. What the hell are the Pakistanis trying to do - kill off test cricket for good. Well, if this ridiculous stuff continues, why would anyone want to play in Pakistan - even if security improves? I mean, I for one, will not want to watch any match like the one going on right now. Hell, it is boring even to look at the scorecard the next morning on Cricinfo.

Come of Pakistan - get a clue!! Make wickets that give bowlers a chance!

This is so bloody awful. I am looking forward to the West Indies v England matches, and the India v NZ and of course the big one - South Africa v Australia [go SA]. I seriously doubt those are going to be similar to the crap being dished out in Karachi.

The Shining Knight of English Cricket

Well, well, well. English cricket bosses at the ECB had embraced the millions offered up by Allen Stanford just recently. Buoyed by that infusion and the 20/20 for 20 game in the West Indies that the ECB greedily signed up the English cricket team for, they even announced an EPL to rival the IPL.

Just a few months later where are we - England lost in the 20/20 for 20 match, Stanford sat wives/girlfriends of England cricketers on his lap in the pavilion, showing his 'class' [I won't comment on the class of the 'ladies' involved], the EPL is history before it even started, and now Stanford is charged by the SEC for fraud!!

Now this idiot who runs the ECB, Giles Clarke, admits it was wrong to tie English cricket so closely with Stanford. What the fuck did they expect? This is what happens when you whore yourself for a few bucks, trying to keep up with the Joneses (really the Modi's). I really loved it when the English sniffed at the IPL like it was unholy. Then they whored themselves and their WAGs for Stanford, and now their top players are running at fast as they can to get into the IPL!! 

I think it is time for the ECB to cut its' losses, apologize to their fans, and get the hell away from Allen Stanford. And oh yeah, they need a new boss - Giles Clarke screwed this up royally, and needs to get the fired.

Aussies cheat on!!

It seems to me that the Australian cricket team, lead by that brute - Ponting, continues to set the low standards in world cricket for sportsmanship. These guys are nothing but a bunch of bullies & cheats.

Last year, during the Indian tour of Australia, they cheated their way to a win in the Test match, and then continued that brutish behaviour through the series and the 1-day tournament (which they got soundly thrashed in).

Add to that the complete ass that Symonds has been making of himself, and you have a team that is out of control and unable to deal with that fact that they are no longer world-beaters. The Aussies thought that they would recover some of their lost lustre (after defeats in India and at the hands of the South Africans) by beating their cousins from NZ. But, alas, NZ has their number too.

So, now they resort to CHEATING!!

Here is a video of the incident as well - cheats at work! The replay clearly shows Haddin knock the bails off with his gloves, and the ball was never going to hit the stumps otherwise! CHEATS.
