Quote of the Day: Don’t Mess with Texas [Or Nemovskaya] Edition

“Before spikes, I was involved in at least 10 events where a vehicle was stopped by using a weapon. I’ve used shotguns, pistols, carbines, and machine guns. It does take a minute or two for the air to go out of a shot tire and yes, suspects can and will continue to drive, at a slower speed, until they loose control. Spikes are safest, but I do teach the best methods for shooting a tire if necessary.” – Capt. David “Kelly” Davis, Cmdr., Criminal Investigation Div. Pecos (TX) PD

    It looks like Mr. Bean sold his cars to the police.

    Don’t pull that in China, they won’t bother with the tires, Randy

      California you don’t even have to be committing a crime. And they don’t aim for tires.

        Fortunately, a lot of ’em couldn’t hit a barn from the inside.

    I, myself, have seen a startling increase in the misspelling of the word, “lose.” Lose control, not “loose” control.

    I know, wtf is up with the spate of “loose” instead of “lose” these days?!? Is it some kind of auto correct? It is ridiculous how much I see that error lately, in many different grammar contexts! Has had me wondering if I have been wrong all these years using “lose”…I’ve even seen it used in, “We have nothing to loose.” W.T.F.

      Hmmm. In “Footloose,” did they lose control of their feet, or were their feet loose to begin with?

      1. avatar CA.Ben says:

        Don’t forget about the verb application of the word.

        Maybe they loosed their feet.

          I thought I was at TTAG. Turns out I stumbled into a spelling and grammer class.

          TTAG = The Truth About Grammar? 🙂

          I prefer People of the Gun to Armed Intelligentsia.

    Long video, the pew pew starts around 1:55. Also, so many grammar babies on the internet. I usually loose control before I lose control.

      Loose bowels before losing control can be an issue with some people.
