In the belly of a volcano. CAPULIN NM. Something like 20,000 acres of malpais. You can walk all around the rim and into the crater. There are a number of others in the vicinity as well. Very cool!

Lockout The Dumb Ass Badges

This has been on my mind because it goes on across this country. People who carry guns and a license to use it at will are able to manufacture their own reasons for fear and actions thus justifying their own job. Bullshit! Here is the link to this  multiple jurisdictional action that took place in schools many miles from where the "threat" started from pictures on facebook that had absolutely no association with these schools - only that this just plain stupid teenage girl attended one of them a year or so before.

Why all this these goings on? The badges "perceived" this as a threat - that's all it takes.
The post from the 15-year-old girl, as described by the sheriff’s office in a release, showed “pictures of a person with a gun to their head, someone drinking bleach through a straw, and two other pictures.” 

One badge said “She was having a yuck moment and expressed herself in the wrong way that had a ripple effect,” Not really asshole as you decided to give this the good 'ol boy "ripple effect".

In the process "district’s Power School notification program alerted parents" whatever the hell that is. Part of that message “due to a direct threat". WTF anyway. Somebody oughtta have their ass kicked for scaring parents and a lot others. We operate on fear and boy does it get to be old shit!

Then there's the attaboy's - "a business manager for Dolores Schools,"praised the community for staying calm and helpful in a stressful situation". I'm sure too that all the other agency's involved cooperated with each other fully to insure the communities were never in danger from something they decided was a "direct threat" coming from a feeling picked on teenage girl who didn't want to go to school the next day.

Officials are confident the threat is over, Carter said, and that students and parents can feel safe about going back to school.

There never was one and that's the point. This is where we are at and just because I don't like doesn't make shit bit of difference. If the time comes if told to do so these uniformed licensed, badged and armed army of the state will turn on us so quickly you won't know what happened and then pat themselves on the back for "doing a good job".

  2. I don't even get it. Who did they think they were protecting? Who was supposedly threatened?

  3. Exactly. But it works for them and everyone goes along with the fear. It won't change. No one questions and they make up shit. It's where we're at.
