5 Middle-School Kids Face Charges For Throwing A Block Of Wood At Trump's Motorcade

Submitted by: fancylad 1 month ago News & Politics

Seems excessive, but five middle-grade students are being held for the throwing a block of wood at Trump's motorcade this past Friday. From the looks of it, the size and shape of the block of wood looked to be about that of a large Belgian waffle. 

Trump's cars were traveling through West Palm Beach, Florida when one of the vehicles was struck by a "small, hard object." Trump and local police later found the object that hit them, then found the five unnamed kids who are currently awaiting charges.

fancylad 5cats @squrlz4ever:  Sometimes I agree with any of you, sometimes I can't stand the crap you spew.  I'm sure the feeling is mutual.

The part of I-A-B that I like is that it is open to all of us from differing ends of the political and intellectual spectrum.  I also like the fact that we can fight and move on to the next topic getting along.  

May I suggest a modification to the forum where users can block other users?  I do this on other sites when I simply can't stand someone and it alleviates stress while still allowing them to spew the shit they wish and have all their friends agree with them.

I'm not looking for an echo chamber, I'm looking for discussion.  I've been schooled by liberals in the past on this site and changed my opinions accordingly; squirlz4ever has likely been the most influential on my adjustments here.  5Cats has also raised some points that made me think twice about my positions.  

Let's be better than this fur-flinging.

insaneai He has spread his campaign of hate-spamming and lies across IAB... and the trolls and idiots blame me.

No, I do not work in a daycare any longer. No I have never been suspected or accused of harming a hair on a child in my life. Screening is routine for any worker, mandatory. I am disabled and now work in a gas station.

Not that this is any of Squrlz's business, not that facts matter to him at all.

He has been asking Fancy to ban me for YEARS now. This is more of the same.

He has flat-out accused me of being a paedophile because... I watch catroons from Japan. That is his evidence.

He has threatened to contact the RCMP and report me as a child molester. He has encouraged others to do the same. These actions are illegal, and if they continue I will be the one contacting the authorities.

His attack is unprovoked, completely disproportionate to my proving him wrong over a trivial issue (see below). He's a sick person who needs medical help. But that's none of my concern, it's no excuse for this shit.

SPAMMING HATE across MULTIPLE the pages of IAB is supposed to be against the very simple rules here.

insaneai Good post. A lot of good ideas here.

I agree wholeheartedly that one of the best things about IAB is the mix of people, squirrels, and at least one alien across the political spectrum. I have a lot of conservative friends on here--maybe even more conservative friends than liberal ones. To name just a few: Grendel, PinkMinx, Dromed, Casaledana, MelCervini, and you, InsaneAI.

All of the above individuals I can trust to behave as reasonable IAB'ers. They generally operate with a baseline level of decorum and don't make gratuitous insults; when asked for a link, they don't return foul-mouthed abuse; and the information they post is generally accurate. If they post something erroneous, I never for a moment think it was done as a deliberate attempt to propagandize.

These qualities, however, are not shared by the individual I've been clashing with today. He often complains about how IAB is "filled with trolls." What he's actually observing here is that a large number of IAB'ers are tired of his foul mouth, his stream of misinformation, and his intellectual dishonesty. So they call him out or disagree with him. In return, he claims he's being trolled and that they are "full of HATE" (he loves the full-caps). Here's a thought: When twenty people are sick of one person's behavior and telling him so, perhaps it isn't trolls that are the problem. Perhaps it's that one person.

I think J-Dog and Fancylad should reconsider as to whether they want to promote this user by publishing his content. Take a look at the posts on his profile. The first page of posts balances out to about a -77. That's a negative 77. His submissions aren't attracting users to IAB; they're repelling them. I also think the website is sorely in need of a moderator to maintain some level of decorum on a day-to-day basis. (Not me, thank you; I did that a few years ago and it's a thankless, unpaid position--been there, done that, resigned.)

Part of the reason I "went to the mattresses" today, so to speak, was because the website is unmoderated and I was tired of watching this one user's behavior grow worse and worse and worse. I have no doubt that after this dust-up, he'll be more polite and less foul-mouthed for one or two weeks. You can see the improvement in his demeanor already as he's seeking allies today to defend himself. But how long will this better behavior last?

A block-this-user function would be a great enhancement. There are absolutely some personalities online, just as in real-life, that are like oil-and-water: they'll never mix.

Your advice that I and this individual stop the fur-flinging is well-taken. As I've said elsewhere, I've voiced my true feelings about this one user, and there's a lot of satisfaction in that. Personally, I'm ready to move on.

Thanks for your thoughts and advice. I appreciate it.

savagenation I'm a liberal. I think these kids are seriously out-of-line and deserve a substantial punishment. I don't think I'd react differently if Hillary had been the target. (I don't particularly like Hillary, incidentally; not that I think that matters.) For me, this wasn't a Donald Trump issue; it was a respect issue. A group of American kids threw a block of wood at the limousine of the President of the United States of America. That is a HUGE problem and these kids need a wake-up call.

I am by no means excusing what the kids did; they should be punished (and will, I'm sure).

But I find it pretty humorous how the county sheriffs are describing the projectile as a 2x4. A 2x4 conjures up a length of wood that's 6, 8, 10, or 12-feet long (the standard lengths 2x4's are sold in). What those kids threw was a four-INCH piece of 2x4. I hope the defense lawyer for these kids makes certain that the judge understands that.

You could kill someone with a 2x4. A four-inch piece of one? Not so much.

squrlz4ever Is it a piece of 2x4? Yes or no? Perhaps it's a piece of 2x8 sawn in half? Oh! False News!!

2x4x4 is still a 2x4... unless it's a 4x4x2 which is a 4x4 that is 2 inches long... pedant.

5cats Learn the basics of English before lecturing others about it. In English, the determiners "a" or "an" indicate the unit is undivided unless indicated otherwise. "A slice of pizza" isn't the same thing as "a pizza." And "a 2x4" isn't the same thing as "a four-inch piece of 2x4." You're telling me that if you ordered thirty 2x4s and a truck delivered thirty 4-inch blocks of wood, you'd be satisfied "because they're STILL 2x4s"?

5cats fancylad Oh, I haven't been attacking you, Pentapuss. When I attack you? Trust me. You'll know it.

In just the past three days, here's a partial list of what you've said to me:

  • "You're full of shit and I am 100% correct until you prove otherwise. Pedant."
  • "Fuck you."
  • "Shove a stick up you fluffy arse."
  • "Fuck you're an idiotic pedant, but you take excessive liberties with words when it suits you, like the liar that you truly are." 
  • "Fuck you."
  • "Fucking do your own research, I'm not your slave."
  • "Screw you if you're too lazy or stupid to look up fucking simple topics."
  • "You're being a little bitch." 
None of this was give-and-take. You've been spewing obscenity-laden abuse for no good reason. Up to now, I've been holding my tongue.

5cats Well, SINCE THE GLOVES HAVE COME OFF, I'll tell you what I really think of you for once, without the sugar-coating.

I think you're a pedophilic low-life who feigns mental illness to collect disability benefits, then uses all his state-sponsored free time to rant online against social welfare programs. It's certainly a monumental case of hypocrisy, and it may also be the most remarkable example of self-hatred I've ever encountered.

As far as your pedophilia goes, it absolutely skeeves me out to think of the number of sexualized six-year-old images you've posted on IAB while working part-time (probably as part of your welfare benefits arrangement) at a children's daycare center.

If I were a father of a four-year-old girl, I would not want you within a one-hundred-foot radius of her.

You are a loathsome piece of human trash, one of the worst persons it's ever been my experience to meet online.

Why Fancylad seems to have this bromance with you, or whatever it is, I have no idea. Actually, I do: You're a human trainwreck and the spectacle is good for the page views.

Without moderators, there's been nothing to keep him in check, and in typical bully fashion, he's gotten worse and worse. As far as the pedophilia and his children's daycare center work goes, I felt it was a matter of civic duty to speak up. I hope the RCMP are aware of the danger.

Just mooching off the tax payers with nothing better to do with his life then make 36,000+ comments on a website and watch anime. When he dies nobody will notice or care. Don't let him get to you.

If he's posting drawings of six-year-old girls in their panties on here, I hate to think what's on his hard drive. He is a loathsome individual. J-Dog and Fancylad need to wake up and seriously consider if they really want to be seen walking arm-in-arm with this creep.

skeeter01 Yes. He's made mention of it before--the names he and his coworkers use to describe the children's runny noses ("green gushers," or something he called it) and other childcare-related trivia. An internal alarm bell went off when he first mentioned it, similar to your comment. (This guy works around children?!) Now, perhaps he's put up some kind of mental wall between his passion for drawings of sexualized six-year-olds and the children at his part-time job. Perhaps. But if you were the father of a four-year-old girl, would you want him alone in a room with her? I would not.

Runham saw this happen it was in the McCain's criticizing trump without using his name post. So be careful in what you type IAB is being monitored.  All other profiles have join dates so something is odd here.

For what it's worth, I think what ZigRat witnessed was some incarnation of "Carnivore," a massive internet security program that scans the internet for keywords. If a keyword is found on a chat site, a bot asks a question to the poster in an attempt to draw out more information. If the response contains more keywords, an actual hooman being steps in who reviews the text and determines what further actions, if any, are needed.
