Polite Society Up-Date

At a MALL★WART in the frozen north, where men are men & women are scarce, a man w/ a service dog
entered the store in a motorized cart at about 3 p.m. and went to the sporting goods section. [Manager Jason] Mahi asked him to put the dog on a leash or leave. The man then pulled out a gun and shot the manager in the abdomen, police said.
Guns & scooters. If only he'd had a snake flag on his motorized cart.

Not to worry about the dog, it's getting a ride too.
Officers removed the man’s prosthetic legs and put him in the back of a patrol car, the Anchorage Daily News reported. They held his dog in the back of another police cruiser. An officer said she was driving the dog home.
Dig it w/ sound off & captions on. Or both on, if you like that sort of thing.

Huh. Perhaps the rapidly narrowing window between the presentation of deadly weapons and the use of deadly force is something we should consider as, if nothing else, an indication that society is turning from one of discussion and negotiation to one of murder as a statement of negotiating position...

Didn't even close the store. That's not very polite.

And the Hoveround® travel mug. Genius.

Today's America Editor:
Negotiation is for the weak (& unarmed) esp. in the last frontier of Alaska.

Didn't even close the store.
The target/victim was a manager. Not needed to keep the store going.
