Ryan Moats Accepts Officer's Apology

The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.
- Mahatma Gandhi
Powell has publicly apologized through a lawyer. Moats said he accepts that apology.

Tamishia Moats said the family has not heard from Powell personally.

“It would be comforting to get an apology from him,” she said. “We definitely would accept his apology.”

NFL Moats Stopped by Cop From Seeing Mother As She Died

Cops pull over NFL player and lectures him after he stopped and then slowly ran a red light with his hazards on a block from the hospital where his mother-in-law was on her death bed:

Moats: My Mother is DYING...RIGHT NOW!! I got SECONDS before she's gone.
Pig: That doesn't constitute running a red light.
SHUT YOUR MOUTH. I can take you to jail!...UNDERSTAND what I CAN do!

Your truck is illegally parked. I'll tow that as well. I can SCREW YOU OVER.

s: Yes Sir.

Hospital Nurse:
We're blue-coding her for the third time. She is dying.
I'm almost done [so is his mother]

FYI: Finally, after a 20-minute delay, the officer ticketed Moats for running a red light.

By the time Moats made it up to the emergency room, his mother-in-law was dead.

So, how does Officer Powell feel about how he carried out his job (after viewing the tape)?

“His belief was simply that he was doing his job,” Chief Simpson said
Luckily Moats' wife (who ignored the cop) was able to see her mother moments before she passed. I watched this video with my mother. She thought Moats was talking too much? wth?? I already know if this was me, after about 5 seconds the cop would have had to tackle me and I would have ended up in the back of the police car! I actually thought Moats was calm, showed extreme self control and was undeservingly respectful to the pig.

Why You're Still Paying on GA 400

Before GA 400 was built, the government promised the toll would ONLY be on the highway until enough money was collected to pay for the highway. (bullshit)

Current Amount Owed: $26.6 million
Current Amount in the GA 400 Toll Account: $32 million

Why? Georgia can’t pay off the Ga. 400 debt, authority officials say, because it has to stick to a payment schedule that runs through 2011. (If that ain't a crock of shit, I don't know what is)

Guess what they are doing with our extra money:
An authority board resolution in 2003 said excess toll money would only be spent on Ga. 400 “corridor” projects, like roads that intersect Ga. 400 and “parallel routes that would directly impact mobility” on the highway. (bullshit)

The governement lied again:
Last year, the authority signed a $2 million contract with Jacobs Engineering Group to study how tolls could be placed on all 44 miles of HOV lanes in metro Atlanta (they're using our money to figure out how they can tax our asses some more)

Coolest Screensavers EVER

These two screensavers are DOPE:


The screensaver alternates between a minimalist display of the current time, including seconds (army time) and five second videos of four Asian women in hoodies and colored jeans performing synchronized dance moves (and last night I discovered....the videos are them sleeping in the AM hours).

The screensaver maker sells the hoodies and jeans.


Dropclock is an aesthetically intriguing motion clock screensaver. Every minute of real time is numerically expressed with heavy helvetica dropping into water in super slow-motion.

Drive Fast, Avoid the Pigs

Trapster is a free application for your Blackberry (or iPhone)

2/3 of drivers frequently exceed the speed limit, according to a recent study, and the other third just filled out the survey too quickly. Trapster is a program that pulls together crowdsourced info about the location of police traps. Drivers report red-light cameras, speed cameras, or cops hiding in wait, which all get added to a map of law enforcement hot spots for the next lead-foot coming down the highway.

The more people that download this application and use it, the more accurate and better it will be. Let's all unite and avoid this wack method of police taxation.
