Wazzup Dawg…………

I will be going out of town today for family issues that I previously talked about, I have pre-scheduled some posts and will try to post some while gone to keep up with some current events. But only have a tablet to do it on and it is very difficult on that.  I plan on being gone two days.

I do appreciate everyones support during this time, and  the views on my site continue to climb and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do doing it.

Dipshit of the day: Brian Birch Nashville police

Walter Fisher

 A Metro Nashville police officer has been decommissioned after threatening to shoot a man in the face during a traffic stop on Sunday.

Police said the traffic stop took place on Bell Road near Interstate 24 in Antioch.

Police said officers stopped 30-year-old Walter Fisher after police received reports about a man carrying what appeared to be an AK-47 near a restaurant.

On Sunday, and throughout the day Monday, video taken by a bystander circulated on social media that showed officers approaching Fisher’s car, pointing guns in the direction of the car and demanding that Fisher get out.

Brian Birch

One officer, later identified as Officer Brian Birch, approached the car with a shotgun, demanded that Fisher get out and shouted, “I’m gonna shoot you in the f—– face!”

In the video, Fisher is seen eventually getting out of the car.

Police ordered him to get out, put his hands up and walk backwards, get on his knees and put his hands out in front of him.

On Fisher’s Facebook page, where he shared the video of his arrest, Fisher said that he did not want to get out of the car because he feared for his life. He said the officer threatened to shoot him.

Fisher also wrote that he wanted to defend his name on social media.

“First off let me clear something up for everyone who seems to know what went on more than the actual person involved, #1.” Fisher wrote. “Iam not a criminal what so ever, never been to jail or arrested #2. I am a valid HANDGUN CARRY PERMIT HOLDER DONT THINK THEY WOULD GIVE A criminal THAT. #3. The Main Reason I Didn’t Get Out The Car Was Because The Officer Jumped Out Stating He Was Gonna Shoot Me.”

Fisher also took to social media to defend his honor.

“I refuse to let simple minded people slander my name when you all probably would ask for my autograph if u really know who I was , let me clear it up ..” Fisher wrote and then described his work and football achievements.

Birch, who graduated the police academy in March 2014, was decommissioned Monday afternoon for “inappropriate language” made during the felony stop on Bell Road.

“There was a call to Casa Fiesta restaurant at 2:18 Sunday afternoon in regard to a man carrying what the citizen thought to be an AK-47 and a pistol,” said Police spokesman Don Aaron. “According to a report to a dispatcher, people were being threatened.”

Aaron said it turned out that Fisher had been the victim of a car burglary in the restaurant and confronted the burglars and that he showed a shotgun that resembled an AK-47.

“The language used by officer Birch was not appropriate and he has been decommissioned while that is sorted out,” Aaron said.

Police said the incident is still under investigation.

Seriously do we need to keep doing this stuff? Do they know that everyone had a video recorder in their hands? SMH!

Retro of the day: Motely Crue

.Girls, Girls, Girls is the fourth studio album by the American heavy metal band Mötley Crüe, released on May 15, 1987.

The album contains a more blused riffed style than their previous albums. The record contains the hits “Wild Side” and “Girls, Girls, Girls“. The record also reflects the band’s hard-living lifestyle, and pays homage to their love of riding Harley Motorcycles, drinking whiskey, drug use, life on the Sunset Strip, and spending nights at strip clubs. However, there are darker sides to the album as well, notably Nikki Sixx‘s song “Dancing on Glass”, about his addiction to heroin[citation needed], and “Wild Side”, which tells of destructive lifestyles and the pitfalls of decadence.[citation needed] The power balladYou’re All I Need” tells the story of the death of a lover and the song “Nona” is a tribute to Nikki Sixx’ grandmother, who died during the recording of the album. Members of the band have stated that if they hadn’t managed to write two successful songs that this album would have been the end of their careers.[citation needed] This is because they were all fighting addictions to drugs and alcohol.
