I know what you mean. I was going to say something, but I hate to get political if I can help it.

I mean, personally, I probably wouldn't call ICE on anyone unless I knew they were doing something else illegal (then I'd probably call the cops anyway) and it sounds like these agents were being a bit jerky. BUT, it's a weird day when we make heroes of a gang of people physically preventing lawful authority from arresting someone for a crime. And when we start deciding which crimes can be prosecuted by the authorities, we have become vigilantes.

Yo.

if ICE had been there in an official capacity, Id agree w/U two. but seeing as they had no legal writ from *any kind* of authority on-hand to take in those 2.....yea, I don't mind this.

Actually, they had legal authority to detain him. They just didn't have the signed warrant that would allow them to enter his house (or car, apparently) without permission. Had he left his car, they would have been able to take him into custody, legally.

I think the happy ending is when he gets dumped back in his home country he is an actual citizen of. ICE are the heroes of the story.

Politicizing even at the dinner table, just now. My mother couldn't resist mentioning how more people were killed in Chicago this past weekend versus the El Paso shooting, but "the news won't talk about it because it's an Obama town!"

Yo.

I'm actually surprised that somebody could turn the fact that more ppl died in 1 mass shooting than another into a talking point..... :/

Frankly, even if the family didn't have the "excuse" of dealing with a child with cancer, leaving such an anonymous, nasty note is pretty despicable.

I've had a neighbor do that to our family, leaving a note calling us "white trash" because we didn't put away our bins soon enough after garbage and recycling was collected on trash day.

In appreciation, Hollywood producers have formally changed the third Machete film's title from "Machete Kills Again" to "Machete Saves."

This probably doesn't fit exactly here, but it's nice to read the good news of mass shootings being prevented. Way to go for the on-the-ball coworker.

Disgruntled cook had arsenal of guns, threatened mass shooting at Long Beach Marriott hotel

Local constable came by and put up a sign today, and we changed the locks. Now if the horrid bitch who's been ruining our lives stops by, we can legally deny her entry and if she tries to enter, automatic breaking-and-entering charge, punishable by up to 10 years in prison and/or $25,000 fine.

We are also allowed to put her junk on the curb as of today and let anybody take it without being responsible for what happens.

That's no way to talk about your mother!

I'm honestly unsure if you're serious or messing with me.

In case you aren't aware: my family's been in a legal battle against an unwanted tenant, who is a major asshole for a 74YO woman. As of yesterday we finally secured victory and I can't wait to get home Monday and start putting the bitch's junk out for anybody to take.
