VIDEO: MOVIES: LISTS: 2011: The Year That Was 2011 | The Life and Art of Vern
Good list…. Outlaw vern’s favorite movies in 2011. This guy writes reviews that really speak the me, he thinks the same things I think more often than most. Not that I agree with his choices, or his opinion of Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes. But it’s a good list.
THIN BLUE LINE: Get drunk, kick in somebody’s door, have them call 911 before you get in, attack the homeowner in front of his kids, hospitalize him – IF YOU’RE A COP, NO CHARGES!
Any civilian doing this would have been charged that night. Any. 100%. That it is several days later and scumfuck violent drunkard Trooper Jesse Miller has still not been charged is a clear example of the thin blue line, the “professional courtsey” (read: corruption) where the system protects its own.
The cops who can hospitalize us do so because they know they will be less likely to be properly punished for their crimes.
Too bad the homeowner didn’t have a gun; I have a feeling the world would be a better place if Jesse Miller had been shot dead that night.
It’s really dangerous to move into an abandoned house. Local police will accost you as if you are a burglar or squatter. A friend of mine ended up pointing a gun at a cop who was peeking in his window when he moved into a previously abandoned house. I guess he’s lucky to be alive.
Land of the free, eh?
