Big Development

No charges for deputy – The Pontotoc County deputy who shot a man during an altercation in Memphis is not having charges brought against him.

Nation/World Highlights

Shooter charged – The jackwagon who gunned down three innocent people in Kansas has been charged with murder. The feds are just itching to get their hands on this guy. Hope they have a secret room that doesn’t officially exist so they can give him a “special” interrogation.

Boston scare – Speaking of jackwagons, a person is in custody after two unattended backpacks were found at the finish line of the upcoming Boston Marathon. Today, of course, is the one-year anniversary of last year’s bombing. Again: Secret room, “special” interrogation. Thank you.
