You know how cars unrealistically explode in movie accidents? Well, it happens in real life too:

[Police] said [rapper Kenneth] Cherry and the occupants of the Range Rover had left the Aria resort hotel and were heading north on Las Vegas Boulevard at 4:20 a.m., an hour when the casino marquees shine brightly but the gambling thoroughfare is largely empty. At Harmon Avenue, occupants inside the Range Rover opened fire on [Cherry's] Maserati, police said.

The silver-gray sports car, which was struck several times, sped into the intersection at Flamingo Road, ramming a Yellow cab, officials said. The taxi exploded, killing the driver and a passenger. Four other vehicles in the intersection were also involved in the crash and explosion, but police offered no details.

Don’t want this to happen to you? See my helpful guide, How to not get murdered.

    Poli:

    I expect we shall see an thorough OSHA investigation followed by fines levied against Maserati.

    Your helpful guide isn’t very helpful. Two of the three people killed were in a taxi. If the point is to avoid death not just murder, maybe you should add avoid cars, since you are far more likely to be killed in a car crash than by a murderer.

    Except in Chicago.

    Stay away from red states too, there is a well-documented higher lethal violence rate in red versus blue states.

      Stay away from red states too, there is a well-documented higher lethal violence rate in red versus blue states.

      That’s what happens in Red (aka: PRODUCTIVE) states; it’s called “more activity”

      Unlike lifeless blue public-union states, where being lazy and less active is rewarded

      • Shilo on February 26, 2013 at 4:27 pm

        The red states have a higher lethal violence rate; higher unemployment; greater poverty; greater obesity; lower college graduation rate; higher teenage pregnancy rate…all told a fine testimonial to the benefits of voting GOP.

        • ip727 on February 26, 2013 at 5:24 pm

          sounds like detroit to me.

            “The red states have a higher lethal violence rate; higher unemployment; greater poverty; greater obesity; lower college graduation rate; higher teenage pregnancy rate”

            Yet, red states STILL created the vast majority of jobs over the past 5 years.

            If blue states were so great, then why can’t they create even 1/4th of the jobs that red states have created? Oh right, because of all the blue state corruption, incompetence and liberal stupidity. That’s why.

            So yes, Shilo’s hate filled rant sounds a lot like detroit.

            LOL!!

            Poll This, get back to us when the red states reach the same average income as the blues. Get back to us when the red states get off federal welfare and pay in as much as they receive. By the way, those new red state jobs? They are in the cities.

          @ Shilo

          Your improper use of a semicolon instead of a comma and your lame use of “…”, where a semicolon should have been used, suggest you may be a violent, unemployed, impoverished, fat, community college dropout; possibly an impregnated minor or predatory baby daddy that lives in an urban cesspool of liberal dominance within an otherwise sane red state.

          • Arno on February 27, 2013 at 3:49 am

            The grammar was correct above, all of it; and so was the argument that the red states are a dead weight on this nation.

            “…red states are a dead weight on this nation.”
            Curious how lefties tend to the belief that assertion weighs more than evidence.

            Here’s a bit of evidence for a method of reducing crime. The method is working well in one locality. As one commenter notes, “Compare with Chicago”.
            http://www.wusa9.com/news/article/245395/158/A-Town-Where-Every-Household-Owns-A-Gun
            Kennesaw’s 1982 gun mandate was a direct response to a gun ban enacted a year earlier in Morton Grove, Illinois. That was later deemed unconstitutional, but Kennesaw’s law is still on the books.

            Added Lt. Graydon, “It was not meant to be an enforceable law. The police department has never searched homes to make sure you had a gun. …

            After the law went into effect in 1982, city leaders say they witnessed a 29% drop in crime. Over the last 30 years, the crime rate has remained low with just four gun-related homicides.

            “Our crime rate is generally less than half the national average,” added Lt. Graydon.

            LMFAO! Only in your dumbed-down leftist bubble.

            ^ Arno = Shilo cowering under another name because he’s too feckless (and probably ashamed) to admit that he doesn’t have the slightest clue about grammar or proper punctuation. He’s just another leftist egomaniac that’s too arrogant to admit his ignorance.

            My (high school) kid is attending a Community College class.
            The instructor hasn’t shown up for class 5 times (so far). The
            writing assignments are all in a style of “how come lefties are so great”.
            Not saying that this sort of academic prowess is related to any of the posters here…

          • The Trolls on February 28, 2013 at 3:25 am

            Jim can dish out the ad hominem attacks, but point out that Jim is a moron? He gets upset.

            awww look, “Shilo” suddenly changed his handle to “The Trolls” after he exposed himself as an ignorant dunce and a coward.
            tsk tsk tsk

    As it turns out Obama is about is Centrist and level-headed as possible. He’ll go down in history as one of our best presidents.

    • Arno on February 27, 2013 at 3:55 am

      Calling him a Marxist is good marketing for the right wing entertainment industry. The froth from the disenfranchised far right will also go down in history. The Tea Party will be remembered as the 15 minutes of the shrill.

    • Mad Dog on February 27, 2013 at 4:11 am

      Agreed. Especially when you consider he was elected on the heels of 30 years of the GOP trashing, destroying and looting the US economy in every conceivable way through voodoo economics, deregulation of the financial and health care sectors, tax cuts for the wealthy, cuts in education, illegitimate wars, elimination of trade protections and drunken sailor spending for the military industrial complex.

      If you had only the last 30 years to go by you would think the GOP’s goal was to drown the US government in the bathtub and blame it all on Obama and the poor.

      Sure, anyone could have about 1 million dollars under Obama’s presidency.

      That is, assuming you started out with 4 million before he was elected by idiot children!

    Yay! If you are a local right wing nutter shut-in and resort to being a grammar cop? Use a fake name.

      ^ awww look, “Shilo” suddenly changed his handle to “The Trolls” after he exposed himself as an ignorant dunce and a coward. And now the craven fool is sniveling like a little girl.

      …tsk tsk tsk, poor little baby

      • Reading is fundamental on February 28, 2013 at 9:53 am

        Yes, it is quite funny how the blue state elite egomaniacs tend to make themselves look less educated than HoneyBooBoo’s clan while they’re ranting about red states.

        It’s unfortunate that the troll is obviously too slow to grasp the irony.

        • Chas on February 28, 2013 at 5:08 pm

          You are a little too obsessed with trolls and your fictitious “blue state elite egomaniacs”.

          Be careful projecting your own little class warfare.

          Plus, you have waaaaay too many sock puppets.

          • Chas = Shilo = Trolls = Feckless Coward on March 1, 2013 at 7:16 am

            you have waaaaay too many sock puppets

            ^ Says “Chas”, “The Trolls”, “Shilo”, “Arno”, etc etc etc

            At the end of the day, you’re still Plutard, the idiot HYPOCRITE.

    Hi everybody!

    Do you like how my army of sock puppets have stolen this blog?

    HA! HA! HA! HA! HA!

      The real anon douchebag died from poison koolaid he drank at the paulbot cult freak camp.

      His epitaph reads: “Here lies a FAKE conservative, but a TRUE blustering blowhard Liberal”

      He will not be missed.

      • Anonymous Un-Paultard on March 1, 2013 at 8:31 pm

        Not much to steal, so don’t flatter yourself, it only makes you look like more of a fool.
