I want to forward a story about a man [Thomas Cottingham] who gave his life to protect a young women and her child from a lunatic with a knife. [Click here and here for news reports.] A young man named Thomas Cottingham also know as “cannibal” or “scumbag” gave his life to protect another citizen. He was a fan of hip hop group called the Insane Clown Posse. He called himself a Juggalo which was know the the FBI as a hybrid gang until this year when the group and the Michigan ACLU fought and won to remove the gang classification. Just because someone dresses different or looks different or listens to weird music doesn’t deny them the right to defend themselves or others.

  1. Respects to scumbag. Facing a knife for another. Sometimes, to walk as a man, you have to put it all on the line.

    May he find peace.

  2. Now we should ban knifes, all knifes. Including butter knifes, hay it is a knife. Any knife can kill even the children. Oh can’t we please think of the children. With that sarcasm said, a bright light has been taken out of this world, and we all suffer because of it.

  3. Stupid people, stupid places doing stupid things.

    And once more -“just starting to turn life around”, starting college, writing the great American novel and curing cancer.

    Decide to act like/dress like a moron may lead to being treated by normal society as a psycho (lose your firearms). Selfdescribe as INSANE CLOWN might be a clue.

  4. There is something grammatical going on here: “which was know the the FBI”

    Maybe ‘which was know to the FBI’?

    That is a sad story. He was obviously a good man.

  5. Have you ever been old to “not run with scissors.”? Should they be illegal. I read were England is trying to ban knives, sorry don’t have a link. It has gone to far. If you are afraid every time you set out of the house stay home.The 2nd Amendment was put into the Constitution so the people could protect themselves from a corrupt government. I believe the people should have what the government has including machine guns. The only gun control law there should be is that criminals can’t have any firearms. Thanks for your vote, pass the word.
