Regular readers will have clocked our coverage of rapper Finese2Thymes (a.k.a., Ricky L. Hampton). Mr. Hampton was arrested today after fleeing the scene of the Power Ultra Lounge in Little Rock, Arkansas when gunfire broke out, injuring 28 people. Of course, Mr. Hampton and his cohort ditched all their weapons as they fled, stayed away from public places and maintained a low-profile. Oh wait . . .
Authorities determined – thanks to social media (above) – that the rapper was going to be in Birmingham Saturday, with the arrest executed by the U.S. Marshals Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force, ATF and FBI.
A search of Hampton’s silver Mercedes yielded two handguns and an AK-47, which the ATF took possession of.
That’s from Rolling Stone, whose prepositional sentence ending is something up with which we should not put.
And get this: The New York Times reported that Mr. Hampton was the subject of not one but two outstanding warrants before he performed at the Power Ultra Lounge.
Whatever else you can (and will) say about Mr. Hampton, his rep is assured.
:-0 My shocked face!
I’m sure liberals will blame it on guns and a tough life growing up in America.
Every time something like this happens someone comes on here and says ” I’m sure the liberals will….blah blah blah.” The hypocrisy is that your statement is actually far more predictable than theirs.
Except that they DO make ridiculously predictable statements that have no material bearing on the situation. Making light of them is preferable to the personal attacks and dishonest statistical gerrymandering we see from the anti side. Lighten up. If you call yourself a liberal, maybe it’s time YOU reconsider your allegiances. They aren’t just coming for conservative guns, neighbor.
“whose prepositional sentence ending is something up with which we should not put.”
Gadfry! I thought EVERYONE knows that you never use a preposition to end a sentence with.
This is the sort of English up with which I will not put!
Formerly attributed to Winston Churchill, it has been discredited. The attribution at least. As to ending with prepositions, that’s really an old affectation, generally kept alive (go figure) by Latin geeks. The rest of us were just victims of their grammarian disciples.
The only one I really have a problem with is “at”. It’s “Scooby Doo where are you?” Not “Scooby Doo where are you at?”
Just in case you were wondering, the charges do include “felon in possession of a firearm.”
Damn. Rick was just turning his life around.
Another “gentle giant” perhaps?
He dintdo nuttn an waz turnng his life-a-fy around!
quote from attorney of record!
I didn’t know there was a Little Rock in Alaska.
I’ll give you an A in English but not so well done in Geography.
As a matter of fact, there are BILLIONS of little rocks in Alaska. However, we do not name them individually. We name mostly the BIG rocks, and leave it at that.
The last time I looked at a map, Little Rock was down south, not way up north. I think RF wants “AR” for the state instead of “AK”.
He must be spending too much time with other media types. He getting his ARs confused with his AKs.
I would be willing to bet there is a town called Little Rock in Alaska
Perhaps there is, perhaps there isn’t. (I’m not looking it up).
But, what are the odds that this dapper young fellow would be seen there?
You lose. . . No town by that name here. However, there IS a ‘Little Rock,’ near Ketchikan, but it’s submerged at high tide and a menace to navigation. Come to think of it, it’s not that much different than the one in ARkansas.
How come, if ‘as’ is pronounced ‘aw,’ isn’t Alaska pronounced ‘Alawka?’ What’s WRONG with those people?!
. . . and is ‘Kansas’ pronounced ‘Kansaw’?
Hey, what did we here in Kansas ever do to you? Hehe
As a matter of fact, yes. KS should be pronounced closer to Kansaw. It was the French explorers/trappers who came though and made things hard to pronounce by adding extra letters to words. Kansas was named for the Kanza tribe. You can still see the Kanza Prarie Reserve along Interstate 70 between Topeka and Fort Riley.
“This new learning amazes me, Sir Bedevere. Explain again how sheep’s bladders may be employed to prevent earthquakes.”
I see what you did there.
My coworkers daughter was in that nightclub. She got a call from her daughter after the initial shots and was on the phone during the last bit of fire. And yes, all over facebook, its “the guns fault”. I dont understand why people cannot grasp the current deterioration of the world. Guns? No. People and morality.
Another peaceful Bernie supporter.
What about that sick az goiter tat.
