Nothing could go wrong here:
A Louisiana sheriff has begun training 200 local volunteers in basic hand-to-hand combat techniques as part of Project Exodus aimed at protecting the northwestern corner of the state from the danger of terrorists, the Shreveport Times reports.
Reporter Drew Pierson writes that Bossier Parish Sheriff Larry Deen’s policing plan involves “a mostly white group of ex-police volunteers and a .50-caliber machine gun” and was inspired in part from the Book of Exodus in the Bible.
The only acts of terrorism we have faced int he states involve blowing up planes, attempts and plans to blow up mass transit and bridges, and a truck bomb, and anthrax mailings. Could someone please explain to me what a few geriatrics with limited hand-to-hand combat experience is going to do to help that? Although since most of these folks are Vitter voters, I suppose they could help provide defense in a national run on diapers.
What the hell is wrong with the south?
