Compare and Contrast

Exhibit a.

Angry comments about the officer’s actions have already peppered social media sites and talkback radio. He’s been called “gung ho” and “over-eager” by some, said Rodney police area commander, Senior Sergeant Scott Webb…”

A Florida high school student wrestled a loaded gun away from another teen on the bus ride home this week and was slapped with a suspension in return.

The 16-year-old Cypress Lake High student in Fort Myers, Fla. told WFTX-TV there

was “no doubt” he saved a life after grappling for the loaded .22 caliber revolver being aimed point-blank at another student on Tuesday.

“I think he was really going to shoot him right then and there,” said the suspended student, not identified by WFTX because of safety concerns. “Not taking no pity.”

The student said the suspect, a football player, threatened to shoot a teammate because he had been arguing with his friend.

Authorities confirmed to WFTX the weapon was indeed loaded, and the arrest report stated the suspect, identified by WVZN-TV as Quadryle Davis, was “pointing the gun directly” at the other student and “threatening to shoot him.”

That’s when, the teen told the station, he and two others tackled the suspect and wrestled the gun away. The next day, all three were suspended.

“How they going to suspend me for doing the right thing?” he asked.

The school’s referral slip said he was given an “emergency suspension” for being involved in an “incident” with a weapon. Lee County School District spokesman Alberto Rodriguez said in a statement that “If there is a potentially dangerous situation, Florida law allows the principal to suspend a student immediately pending a hearing.”

Exhibit c.

A 16 year old girl had been RAPED by some-one, and this Doctor was asked to treat her. He used his position of authority and trust to initiate sex with her instead. At least twice, according to the report. Can we really believe that was all, and can we really believe there was only one case?  If there were no name suppression,  other victims may have stepped forward by now.  And who else knew? Perhaps colleagues and superiors knew something?

And just to prove the secular system is tough on sex crimes – a mere $1,000 fine!

There seems to be a growing issue with people not being able to put the important first:

  1. The importance of putting down dangerous animals who take lives.
  2. The importance of not punishing  people who save lives!
  3. The importance of naming a man who has committed a honorific act.

It is extraordinary that the poor boy who saved a life isn’t in the white house today, receiving an award. You’d think that natural since he stopped a school shooting and Obama is convinced those are really, really bad. Perhaps it’s too soon for that.

But all is not lost. If comments to the above are any indication, the great unwashed still have some semblance of morality. I didn’t go looking for any of these stories – they were things I stumbled upon in my usual lazy surfing habits this evening. They are disseminated by people who are outraged at the attitude of people in authority in New Zealand and (more generally) western society.

Meanwhile, the “washed” are busy implementing gay marriage, lest the handful of people who chose civil unions feel put-upon at not being able to call their relationship by the name they feel entitled to. Probably next year, they’ll implement a bill of rights for man-eating sharks or something.

Strange how it’s those who suggest parliament spends it’s time on other matters who get told to focus on the important…


  1. Nice post. Liked your observation. And Exhibit B just knocks me flat. Astounding.

    Regarding Exhibit A – how dare the greenies and fish rights activists ASSUME it was a great white shark that attacked that poor man. Could have been any of a few species, but no, they are so convinced of the savagery and aggression of the great white, that they “just know” that was the shark that murdered that man. Talk about bias! Of course, if it turned out to be another species, then it wasn’t a protected species, and their case is blown out of the water, so to speak. OK – I’m joking a little, and it’s in bad taste given the tragic circumstances, although this comment is nowhere near as off-colour as the animal activitists that complained about the brave police officer’s completely justifiable and reasonable actions.
