Sheriff Joe is a true hero to those of us who are law-and-order types, who hate the PC, criminal-coddling system we typically have. I can’t wait for this show. I’ve been wondering how long it would take before someone would see the potential for a reality show with him.
Instead of taking an off-the-line passenger vehicle and retrofitting it with tens of thousands of dollars worth of equipment to bring it up to specifications, the E7 starts with officersâ€™ needs in mind. The vehicle is engineered from bumper-to-bumper, and from the ground-up, to serve the unique demands of law enforcement, with features including:
- A high-performing six-cylinder dual-turbo clean diesel engine that burns less fuel
- Bullet-stopping ballistic panels in front doors and dash panel
- Emergency lights and flashers integrated into the roof, body and bumpers
- 360-degree exterior video and audio monitoring with programmable pre-event recording capability
- Video and audio monitoring of rear passenger compartment
- Automatic license plate recognition system
… and it seems like this week will last FOREVER! Only 7 more days to go until Jack is back, and we’ll finally get to see some wicked righteousness come back into our lives with Season 6 of “24.” Yes, I know Jack Bauer is only a fictional character, but I can only hope and pray that will all the spinelessness that’s been shown recently (on both sides of the aisle), that there are some “Jack Bauers” in this world.
I will be blogging after each episode, and that will start this same time next week. Keep watching! I may sneak a video clip or two in. For the time being, watch the extended trailer on the Fox “24″ site here.
h/t to Drudge for this late-breaking story about the new U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon via the AP. Apparently, Ban has ticked some of the U.N. appeasers and thugs off by not denouncing the death penalty carried out against Saddam Hussein.
New U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon ran into trouble on his first day of work Tuesday over Saddam Hussein’s execution when he failed to state the United Nations’ opposition to the death penalty and said capital punishment should be a decision of individual countries.
The U.N. has an official stance opposing capital punishment and Ban’s predecessor Kofi Annan reiterated it frequently. The top U.N. envoy in Iraq, Ashraf Qazi, restated it again on Saturday after the former Iraqi dictator was hanged.
Ban, however, took a different approach, never mentioning the U.N. ban on the death penalty in all its international tribunals, and the right to life enshrined in the U.N. Charter.
“Saddam Hussein was responsible for committing heinous crimes and unspeakable atrocities against Iraqi people and we should never forget victims of his crime,” Ban said in response to a reporter’s question about Saddam’s execution Saturday for crimes against humanity. “The issue of capital punishment is for each and every member state to decide.”
