1-Legged war veteran comes to aid of mother and baby from 2 thugs……and he’s arrested.

June 15, 2008

Yes, because he was carrying a rusted truncheon (a retractable baton) that wouldn’t even open. Royal Navy veteran Stephen Beerling heard a woman screaming outside of his house at 2:30 a.m. He called 999, the UK version of 911, and rushed out to help the woman, grabbing the truncheon in case he needed it to defend himself or the woman.

He was able to talk to the 2 men harassing the woman and her child. Police arrived and arrested the men but also arrested Beerling for possessing the truncheon, which he hadn’t even removed from his pocket.

Thankfully, no charges will be pressed against this good Samaritan. Of course, in characteristic bureaucratic style, a simple, “Whoops, we really screwed up, sorry,” type of apology or explanation wasn’t issued. Instead, police released the following statement:

Kent Police and Senior Crown Prosecutor Janet Garnon-Williams said in a statement: ‘A decision has been taken jointly to discontinue the case as there is not a realistic prospect of conviction.’

How kind of them…….

John McCain’s wife speaks…oh..no, no, I meant his FIRST wife…the one he left after she was in a near fatal car accident

June 11, 2008

Ted Sampley, who fought with US Special Forces in Vietnam and is now a leading campaigner for veterans’ rights, said: ‘I have been following John McCain’s career for nearly 20 years. I know him personally. There is something wrong with this guy and let me tell you what it is – deceit.

‘When he came home and saw that Carol was not the beauty he left behind, he started running around on her almost right away. Everybody around him knew it.

‘Eventually he met Cindy and she was young and beautiful and very wealthy. At that point McCain just dumped Carol for something he thought was better.

‘This is a guy who makes such a big deal about his character. He has no character. He is a fake. If there was any character in that first marriage, it all belonged to Carol.’
