THIS WEEK!!! Katsu Ika Odori-Don gets a new name!! We get so sick and tired of NFL protests, we take a knee the entire podcast!! I edit out a really bad joke I made and wow you do NOT want to hear it. El Sooper is now an honorary producer of a Fox News show!! Can you guess which one?! FIND OUT AT THE PODCAST!!
It has been absolutely heart-breaking to see the devastation in Mexico after the tremendous earthquake that struck near Mexico City.
If you’re looking for a way to donate to help so that you know absolutely every penny is being used efficiently, I put my complete confidence in Adventures in Life Ministry. I have met and know this man, and trust him implicitly.
It’s very difficult to donate to any charity when you know the money will be saved for other causes, or that it’ll go to huge salaries or enormous advertising campaigns.
If you want to help, and want to make sure your hard-earned money will actually help, you can trust these people. I put my reputation on it (whatever you might think of my reputation is another matter…).
I’ll try to post updates of how they’re helping those in need on my website.
Thank you for any donation.
And if you can’t donate, pray. And even if you can donate, pray as well.
THIS WEEK!!! Los Mejicanos return and we kick out the gringo!! And gringo Matt goes to wherever gringos go when they’re deported. Probably somewhere fancy like Trump Tower or something. SO it’s just half-mexy Jessica, or Katsu ika odori-don, and the full SOOPER!! We talk a lot about television shows and movies. And politics. I guess. Also we explain what trichophagia trichobezoar is. WOW how can you wait a second more you have to listen right now!!!
I’m honestly not sure what happened this week. I cancelled the podcast because Jessica wasn’t able to make it because she was scheduled to fight Hurricane Irma, and I wanted to watch football, so Matt was like, “oh hay, can I record something?” Then I discover that he’s pushed the Mexicans off the podcast. Sheesh.
So he invites on special gringo @MetricButtload from Louisiana, and special gringa @VitaeLibertas from Florida.
I dunno what they talk about it. Libertarians, natural law, and grocery stores. Or something.
Salt Lake City police apologized Friday for arresting a nurse who, citing hospital policy, refused to let officers draw blood from an unconscious accident victim. The arrest of Alex Wubbels, who was later released without charge, was captured on body camera video that the police chief said was alarming.
The incident happened July 26, when an accident victim was admitted to the University of Utah Hospital burn unit in a coma. Though the man was not a suspect in the crash, which killed the other driver, police asked for his blood to be drawn.
Wubbels, the charge nurse in the burn unit, presented the officers with a printout of hospital policy on drawing blood and said their request did not meet the criteria. Hospital policy specified police needed either a judge’s order or the patient’s consent, or the patient needed to be under arrest, before obtaining a blood sample.
“I’m just trying to do what I’m supposed to do. That’s all,” Wubbels tells the officers, according to the body camera video.
Wubbels’ attorney, Karra Porter, said Friday the university and Salt Lake City police had agreed to the policy more than a year ago and “the officers here appeared to be unaware of” it.
This really makes my blood boil because she did nothing wrong and he could have called in to find out if she was right about the policy. She wasn’t a suspect in any way at all.
If you’re an advocate for police, as I am, you should be outraged too. It’s THIS kind of crap that puts other cops in danger, because it makes them ALL look like violent irrational thugs. That guy needs to be fired immediately,* for the sake of the honor of the police force, and to keep the compact between the community and law enforcement.
I posted this at the Right Scoop and got some blowback from people who said the cop was in the right.
If that’s the case, then the nurse should have known the law, and it’s her fault and her supervisors’ fault.
But that’s not the way it appears to play out – the video doesn’t appear to depict a crazy nurse who’s out of line, but rather a cop who thinks that anyone disagreeing with him is justification for a physical altercation and arrest.
Whatever the law is, they should have been able to settle this by calling a few supervisors and discussing the law, not dragging her out for an arrest…
*unless an investigation finds some kind of weird detail that totally changes the entire story, like the nurse is actually a shape-shifting lizard alien and reached for his gun or something.
THIS WEEK!! We talk about all sorts of stuff including the Hurricane Harvey and Howie Kurtz making jokes about football brain damage, and conspiracy theories and trotskyite traitors, and David Clarke resigning, and alleged meowing, and Joel Osteen’s heresies and how el Scoop is a Lyndon Larouche-ite now, and we talk about theology and also why the alt-right is all-wrong about immigration, and Platonists versus Aristotelians!! WOW!! You need to listen NOW!!!
