Good news from New Hampshire as America drowns in debt

Friday, February 24th, 2012

Really busy day today, so I’ll spare you from my usual, long-winded maundering.

UPDATE: My Wednesday post was about the guy in New Hampshire who capture a burglar and was arrested because he fired his weapon into the dirt as a warning. Well,  today I have good news:

Charges Dropped Against Homeowner Who Fired Gun

FARMINGTON, N.H. — The county attorney’s office is dropping charges against a man who tracked down a burglary suspect and held him at gunpoint until police could arrive.

Dennis Fleming said he tracked down the man in his Farmington neighborhood and fired his gun into the ground to get the burglar to stop.

He held 27-year-old Joseph Hebert at gunpoint until police arrived and arrested him.

Hebert was charged with two counts of burglary and one count of possession of a controlled drug.

Fleming was originally charged with reckless conduct for firing the gun.

“I believe the charge would’ve been unjust to go forward, and frankly, could not have been proved beyond a reasonable doubt,” said Strafford County Attorney Thomas Velardi.

Velardi said police acted properly at the time Fleming was charged, but he said further investigating showed the charge should be dropped.

The attorney’s office said firing a “warning shot” around or near other people or homes can result in police involvement or a charge.

It’s nice to know that common sense still exists in The Granite State. Now, if only we could get some the that down there in The People’s Republic of Massachusetts, where the local DA would likely be mewling about how we have to make an example of the guy to stop others from trying to protect themselves and their neighbors.

***

Despite what the left and their lackeys in the media want you to believe, the economic situation in America is not getting better. How can it when we continue to drown ourselves in debt?

If a picture tells a thousand words, these graphics, which I found on the Powerline website and which were taken from government reports, must comprise one heck of a novella.

Don’t you have to wonder just how stupid — or nefarious — our President and Congress must be not to understand what this kind of debt will do to America?

Not exactly the change you hoped for, eh?
