Now I'm Thirteen, Smokin' Blunts, Makin' Cream
Why are so many thirteen-year-olds on the drug scene instead of the football team? Why do we crucify the police when they shoot at the driver of a stolen car in self-defense?
Shouldn't we be more worried about why the kid was out at 4 a.m., in a stolen freakin' car, in the first place? Nope, our society prefers to place all the blame at the feet of the police officer. After much outrage, the LAPD has now decided to make shooting into moving vehicles, heading straight for them, illegal.
Why does this country go so far out of its way to protect criminals? Hey, if you don't want to get shot at, don't steal cars! If you simply must steal a car, at least avoid using it as a weapon to assault an officer.
There's a reason there were 515 homicides in LA last year, and it's not because our laws, or law enforcers, are too strict.
