A year ago, I reported on an incident at a Target where a group of “teens” were stealing from a Target store. The store contacted police, who just happened to be conducting training nearby, and the cops attempted to take the young criminals into custody. The criminals, who were illegally armed with at least one firearm, tried to ram the responding deputies, whereupon the cops fired multiple shots into the car, killing one and wounding two others.

The lawyers for our young thugs stepped in and claimed that the police were not in uniform, driving unmarked cars, and did not identify themselves. They then shot into the car while at least one of them had his hands in the air. (If they weren’t known to be cops, why were the criminals surrendering?) Anyhow, Target then declined to file charges.

The reason I mention this is because the criminals are now suing Target for the cops shooting them, claiming that Target allowing the cops to use their parking lot for training was some sort of conspiracy to use the criminals as training subjects, so the police could use vehicles and guns on live subjects.

One of the claims is that Target knew, through their video surveillance, that the three thugs were stealing. They also knew that the cops were outside. The lawsuit claims that Target has a duty to warn all of its customers of hazards that may be present on the premises, and therefore has a duty to warn shoplifters that the cops are outside waiting to arrest them.

This is the kind of thing that lawyers should be penalized for doing. Our courts are overworked as it is, and this is the kind of money hunting, ambulance chasing behavior that needs to be discouraged. There are plenty of companies out there that are total jerks and need to be dragged into court. This case isn’t one of those.

Being anywhere near Target is mistake number one and banskters love lawyers.

Its easy to bad mouth lawyers, until you need one. Then they are priceless.

    Please reread the last paragraph.

These lawyers will never be held accountable for the frivolous lawsuits they bring since the only ones that could accomplish that accountability are the judges – which (surprise surprise) are lawyers too.
I know its common practice for lawyers to get a portion of awards in civil actions but my question is….how much do the judges get – especially with a directed verdict?
Yeah, I no longer respect our government OR legal system (formerly known as the justice system).

When Target refused to prosecute, it basically said there was no crime so there was no reason for the police to be called or the justification for the use of force.

Screw Target and their gutless management.

Screw target. They are enablers of this garbage by giving the slob n bob to black lives splatter, transfaggotry, and all the other leftist causes du jour. I look at a suit like this, despite being obviously frivolous on it’s face, as a small part of the penance the company must do for being ideologically wrong and stupid. When their Lake St. store in minnedishu got looted and torched during the floyd riots, I roared with laughter at how they got punked, even after publicly fellating the cause of the very shitheads who aired their joint out and cost them millions in losses.

That’s karma. And while it may not be the exact payback I’m looking for against a company that has made itself my sworn ideological enemy for what it chooses to represent, I’ll take any harm or insult against them that I can get. It’s not as if we have an actual justice system rooted in equal protection, logic and uniform application not law anymore, so fighting dirty, and enjoying seeing my enemies get fucked, even if it is done by others who are also my enemies, is a source of great satisfaction and amusement to me.

It’s essentially a game of “let’s you and him fight” conducted without my even have to instigate it. If it costs them millions, good. Let them keep taking the hits until they either learn not to be overt leftist fuckheads, or get bankrupted. I’ll take either outcome as a win.

Any harm that comes to those working against me and my objectives is a benefit to me. In a world not so perverted in thought and deed, I’d not have to be in a position to actively enjoy things like this taking place. But we don’t have that, we have fake and ghey clown world. Let them take whatever punishment comes their way. I’ll just be over here with a chubby, watching and chuckling about it.

You forgot to add “Judges” to the title
Them in particular…
One in fact I’m aware of -intimately-

    BCE! Your addendum to the list is duly noted. I can’t speak for DM, but the fuckers who wear a black GreatClips smock are certainly on my list of “undesirables” who shall not be given clear passage to the next iteration of whatever our society becomes. Have been for an very long time, in fact.

    BCE. I found out a couple days ago that your blog got pulled. That sucks. Where are you located now?
