Then from last week’s Digby:
An officer, whose name was not released, was patrolling Jefferson Avenue when he encountered Petruney on the ground near his apartment about 1:05 p.m., suffering from what appeared to be a seizure.
Petruney then stood up, disoriented, and attempted to walk into traffic, police Lt. Daniel Stanek said at the news conference.
Petruney refused orders to sit down and charged the officer, biting him and swinging his arms when the two began to struggle, Stanek said.
Another officer, who also was not identified, arrived on the scene. Petruney was first shot in the legs with two Taser wires. The second officer then applied his Taser directly to Petruney’s torso, Stanek said.
At that point, Petruney lost his pulse and was revived by paramedics.
Stanek said the officers followed department procedures in using Tasers. He said city police have had problems in the past with Petruney, who has known mental health issues. He has bitten a police officer before, Stanek said.
Police are preparing to charge him with aggravated assault and resisting arrest upon his release from the hospital.
No need. He died.
and from Steve Benen:
O’REILLY: Do you believe that you are smart enough, incisive enough, intellectual enough to handle the most powerful job in the world?
PALIN: I believe that I am because I have common sense and I have — I believe the values that are reflective of so many other American values. And I believe that what Americans are seeking is not the elitism, the kind of a spineless — a spinelessness that perhaps is made up for that with some kind of elite Ivy League education and a fat resume that’s based on anything but hard work and private sector, free enterprise principles. Americans are — could be seeking something like that in positive change in their leadership. I’m not saying that that has to be me.
Ladies and gentlemen, the one national political figure that can make George W. Bush look like Socrates.
Palin thinks she’s qualified to lead, not in spite of her inexperience and ignorance, but because ofher inexperience and ignorance. I can see the bumper stickers now: “Vote Palin ’12: She Won’t Bother You With A Bunch Of Highfalutin Thought And Seriousness.”
and I go: “ohhhhhh jolly gosh, you very very crappy, meh very very smacky!!”
