Sand in the wound

Apparently there was some sort of sporting contest recently involving hockey. Whatever. That would be of little interest to me except that some “fans” in the losing city decided to respond by taking to the streets and engaging in acts of vandalism and destruction.

These are no longer your garden variety idiots. They have promoted themselves to criminals. Let the proclamations of innocence commence! If you ask everyone in the area, I’m sure you’d be amazed to hear that absolutely none of them would ever be caught doing anything like this. And, if you drag mom into it, she’ll be sure to say things like the boy “isn’t an anarchist or a career rioter.” Yeah, right, mom! How in the hell would you know???

The fun part, though, involves Facebook. Roger Ebert posted a screenshot of the Facebook page of “Brock Anton” who wrote a “status” update on his “wall”:

Maced in the face, hit with a Batton, tear gassed twice, 6 broken fingers, blood everywhere, punched a fucken pig in head with riot gear on knocked him to the ground, through the jersey on a burning cop car flipped some cars, burnt some smart cars, burnt some cop cars, I’m on the news…. One word ….. History 🙂 🙂 :))

In less than a minute, a responder added a comment, saying, “brockkkk! take this down!!! its evidence!”

Curious, I googled the dude’s name and found a group on Facebook entitled, “Brock Anton Sucks Dick.” That group contains two images apparently showing “Brock Anton” in his signature sunglasses near an upside-down car while the riot was in progress.

Below one of the pictures, a Facebook commenter named “Shannon King” had this to say:

what a loser! the ONLY time this moron gets laid again will be in a cell by a sexy man named Bubba and he’ll sprinkle sand on it before ramming it in loser’s ass…enjoy the deep penetration

So far Shanon’s comment has been “liked” by 19 people. I tried to visit her profile and send her my deepest appreciation but I’m not her “friend,” so apparently that is not allowed.

Thank god for sports! This all helps restore my faith in humanity.

When the Wind Tanks
by Tom B. Taker

The clear fresh blue was a flat calm. The Great Sucking was held at bay.

He stood proudly on his craft festooned in a navy blue jacket with brass buttons.
