    The pond is drying up and the mass table scraps aren’t there any longer, meaning a tsunami is on the way.

    Besides digging moats that may dry up in late summer, how are the non Caliphate people prepping for the waves of infiltration of zombie shock units and behind them waves of zombies?

    It’s real.

  • You may be right mr chump alot of bad stuff out there .all the dead body lately .sign of things to come who know ? She looks alot older than 40 maybe a type o.

  • What was the ‘assault’ arrest from ? A prior action ???

    >”… assault with a deadly weapon other than a firearm…>

  • I really hope there’s more to the story, sure the lady looks batshit crazy but can cops seriously arrest you for having an open pocket knife now?

    • She was arrested for a prior warrant. And what about the context of the open knife? Why was she walking with an open knife on a sidewalk. I carry a lock blade knife most of the time but it stays in my pocket unless I want to use it. I say “good show” to the officer responsible!

  • Two knife stories today.
    If they are in your pocket they’re a concealed weapon. Open carry illegal?
    I guess its time to ban knives!
    Heaven forbid society deals with crazy people!

  • Did they mean fixed blade?
