How "Not" To Get Shot By Police
Recently, in an area on the West Coast,
an inordinate number of police-officer-involved shootings have taken place.
As a result, several suspects have been fatally injured. Newspapers in the
area, quoting local "community activists," have editorialized that, with all
these shootings by police, "any citizen" could find himself dodging police
bullets, for no apparent reason at all! Responding to the newspaper
editorial, a Deputy District Attorney, who is obviously community minded,
submitted a five point plan. The plan is designed to assist citizens, who
might otherwise be randomly shot by police, in staying out of the path of
police bullets. The newspaper never printed it, but I thought you might
appreciate it, even if they didn't.
"I've devised a five point plan to
help citizens avoid being shot by police. This plan may not prevent all
shootings, but very few will take place when the plan is rigorously adhered
to. So, here are the rules:
1. Don't commit violent crimes. I
know this seems elementary, but this rule is lost on many. They do
the crime, get shot, and then wonder how it could possibly happen. They
whine that it is so unfair. Well, violent crime, like jumping in front of
moving cars, is just a high risk occupation.
2. If you ignore
rule No. 1, and the police do confront you, Don't run away from them. I
know it's hard to believe, but that may make them think you're guilty of
something. Hiding in bushes or closets makes some cops very nervous. They
might even foolishly conclude that you're up to no good!
3. If you
disregard rules 1 and 2, and the cops catch up with you anyway and inform you
that you are under arrest, Don't make fast movements with your hands. I know
it sounds silly, but grabbing a shiny beer can or a dark colored wallet may
make police officers mistakenly believe that you are about to hurt
4. If you disregard rules 1, 2, and 3, and manage to get what
looks like a deadly weapon into your hands, Don't point it at the cops. We
all know that you're basically a nice person, but that may be lost on the
police officers confronting you. In their paranoia, they may even believe
they need to protect themselves.
5. If you disregard rules 1, 2, 3,
and 4, Don't be astonished if the cops do not instantly turn into your
personal confidante. They may be too preoccupied to realize that you're
normally a splendid person and that you're just having a bad day. They may
be too preoccupied to see that when you point a weapon at them in a
threatening manner, it is just your way of crying out for help. We both know
that the whole problem can be traced to the fact that your mother didn't
breast feed you, but some police officers are so cynical they just don't see
So, there you have it. If you really apply yourself and obey even
some of the rules listed above, I bet you'll avoid the vast majority of

An old man goes to his doctor, complaining about a persistent pain in his leg
and wants a diagnosis and explanation. The doctor checks out his leg, but
can't find anything wrong, so he gives the old man a full physical exam, and
still can't come up with any possible explanation for the pain.
doctor hands the patient his bill and says, "I'm sorry, but the pain in your
leg is simply caused by old age; there's nothing I can do about
The old man replies with a look of disbelief, "That's
impossible! That can't be!"
The Doctor says, "What do you mean? I'm
the expert here; if you know so much, how can you say it's NOT old
The patient answers, "I'm no doctor but it doesn't take a
medical degree to tell that your diagnosis is wrong. Clearly you're
mistaken. After all, my other leg feels just fine."
"So what?" says
the doctor "What difference does that make?"
"Well, it doesn't hurt a
bit, and it's the SAME AGE!"

advised him to plead guilty.

Little reflection is necessary for us to realize that
our most troubling times have generally been responsible for our greatest
growth. Our achievements are always accompanied by periods of
frustration, occasional loss of direction, even momentary despair
because the actual results miss the mark of our hopes. However, the
passage of time makes clear that these actual results benefit us far more
than those we'd hoped for.
Our personal vision is narrow and limiting.
We can't really imagine what's in store for us. The most we can do is trust
that our experiences have our best interests in tow.

Truck Driver, Priest and the Lawyer
A truck driver used to amuse
himself by running over lawyers he would see walking down the side of the
road. Every time he would see a lawyer walking along the road, he would
swerve to hit him, and there would be a loud "THUMP" and then he would
swerve back on the road. One day, as the truck driver was driving along he
saw a priest hitch hiking. He thought he would do a good deed, so he
pulled the truck over.
He asked the priest, "Where are you going,
"I'm going to the church 5 miles down the road," replied the
"No problem, father! I'll give you a lift. Climb in the
The happy priest climbed into the passenger seat and the
truck driver continued down the road. Suddenly the truck driver spotted
a lawyer walking down the road and instinctively swerved to hit
But then he remembered there was a priest in the truck with him,
so at the last minute he swerved back onto the road, narrowly missing the
lawyer. However, even though he was certain that he missed the lawyer, he
still heard a loud "THUD."
Not understanding where the noise came
from he glanced in his mirrors, and, when he didn't see anything, he
turned to the priest and said, "I'm sorry, father. I almost hit that
"That's okay," replied the priest. "I got him with the door!"
A big city lawyer went duck hunting in South
Louisiana. He shot and dropped a bird, but it fell into a farmer's field on the
other side of a fence. As the lawyer climbed over the fence, an elderly farmer
drove up onhis tractor and asked him what he was doing. The litigator responded,
"I shot a duck and it fell in this field, and now I'm going into retrieve it."
The old farmer replied. "This is my property, and
you are not coming over here."
The indignant lawyer said, "I am one of the best
trial attorneys in the U.S. and, if you don't let me get that duck, I'll sue you
and take everything you own."
The old farmer smiled and said, "Apparently, you
don't know how we do things in Louisiana. We rule ourselves under the Napoleonic
Code. We settle small disagreements like this with the Louisiana Three Kick
The lawyer asked, "What is the Louisiana Three Kick
Rule?" The Farmer replied. "Well, first I kick you three times and then you kick
me three times, and so on, back and forth, until someone gives up."
The attorney quickly thought about the proposed
contest and decided that he could easily take the old codger. He agreed to abide
by the local custom. The old farmer slowly climbed down from the tractor and
walked up to the city feller.
His first kick planted the toe of his heavy work
boot into the lawyer's groin and dropped him to his knees where he immediately
The geezer's second kick nearly ripped the man's
nose off his face.
The barrister was flat on his belly when the
farmer's third kick to a kidney nearly caused him to give up.
The lawyer summoned every bit of his dark heart,
vengeful will and managed to get to his feet and said, "Okay, you old coot now
it's my turn."
The old farmer smiled and said, "Naw, I give up.
You can have the duck."
