    Im.not disagrin but with the guard and the cops I'm sure if In the act of unarmed robbery and breaking in.and the guy was holding a tv and the cops just shoots him,summary execution is the legal term,that the people would protest.that's the difference. I would have to be threatened.someone in a room.being broken into can reasonably assume he us in danger and use lethal.force.if im.patrolling the streets and see a loiter with stuff running away ,it's hard to probe that he was a threat to me.when it's public safety he isn't stealing ,his inent is implied to cause public harm of life or limb.

    I'm just venting. I wish we could shoot them with porcupine needles. I have a special place in mind.

    I can't imagine doing it. Terrible that people think such a thing is okay. They act like animals.

    For FLORIDA residents
    If you lose power, go to your Wi-Fi settings on your phone and look for xfinity wifi and sign in. They have activated 135 hot spots throughout the State. This is for everyone in Florida. You will have to sign in every 2 hours, but at least you'll have wifi.

    Yeah, I know. How can you see this if you don't have a connection in the first place?

    But it's here anyway.

    Power is restored.
    I stayed up all Sunday night and panicked a lot. A tornado went down my street and knocked trees over and tossed someone's tin roof into my driveway. Flash flood warnings kept getting spammed and I kept waking my mom and brother up and annoying them. I was nearly hyperventilating at one point and my brother tried to calm me down by having me watch YouTube on his phone.
    My city had a lot of flooding and damage, but so far as I know no deaths have been reported. Some people had to be rescued from their homes by boat. The flood waters never touched my street, guess we're on higher ground.
