I really can't believe the Bollingbrook police department is so inept that they can't nail this guy on two murders he almost definitely had something to do with.. so they're going after him for gun barrel length for legal weapons he bought while he was a police officer.

This guy is the poster ass-clown for jerks, cheaters, smug assholes, and loathsome farkers with inflated senses of entitlement nationwide.

You know whatever happens to him he'll maintain that..that..that attitude. My super-former-nightclub-doorman sense says, "Let him in; when he screws up we'll beat his ass."

"Excuse me, Mr. Travolta can I get an autograph? It's not for me it's for my latest wife...Thank you, thank you so much Mr. Travolta." "What do I do? Well I'm a member of the SWAT team and we're going to do this really boring drug bust later today.... You need a SWAT team to protect you? No problem. We can do that drug bust another day... Oh, who exactly are we protecting you from?"

He was issued a weapon to use as a cop. He's no longer a cop. I used to work at Jack in the Box but you don't see their deep fryer in my kitchen, do you?

Using SWAT to protect some uppity dumbass celebrity really tees me off.
John Travolta deserves the same as everyone else, if he needs bodyguards
then he should sell a jet and buy his own rather than making me (taxpayer)
foot the bill so he can strut around and sign autographs under the watchful
eye of law enforcement officers who could be enforcing a law somewhere.
Reminds me of the $20,000 Britney convoy to the hospital. That's some
good ol' California taxpayer money being spent there... It's not the same
as if they are government officials who do have the right imho to utilize
such measures, but certainly we bow and scrape to people who ACT for a
living far too much.

gavnook: Apparently, I'm supposed to know who Drew Peterson is.

These days, always assume any guy with the surname Peterson = wife killer.

Drew is a cop whose third wife was found dead under mysterious circumstances and whose fourth wife has been missing for several months now. He has very odd ways of showing distress, such as trying to go on a radio show to find a new girlfriend.

How can one police dept. be so farking inept? This smug SOB has killed two wives, and all they can do is get him for a illegal gun?

Hey, Drew's not a bad guy. Look at everything he did for the broad:
He got her: a boob-job; a tummy-tuck; braces; hair removal; some ink (carnation tramp-stamp). Bought her high-line jewelry

Did I miss som'n?

Somebody steals from me, I'm gonna say you stole. Not talk to him for spitting on the sidewalk...

Billy, it's high-end jewelry.

Man I hate that I'm not driving into work today. Steve Dahl will probably dust off the old Drew impression for this one.

Not that I'm defending Peterson, but most cops can buy or even get to keep their service weapon. My father was issued a .38 Special service revolver when he was an NYPD cop. Later he bought a 9mm and used either that or the .38, depending on what duty he was pulling that day (on the beat, 9mm. Traffic & other junk, .38).

When he retired, the dept. let him keep the .38 (and of course the 9mm he'd bought)

I agree that not all of these movies are all that great, but to call them all pulp seems a touch unfair.

If you happen not to like it, super, but to say that Pulp Fiction is not a good movie is just wrong. It is actually a great movie, by any definition of the word. I dont care for The Sound Of Music myself, I cant stand it actually, but it is a great movie, regardless of my personal taste.

My main problem with it is the presence of Travolta. Also, Tarantino being a precious, pretentious attention-whore, but that's nothing new.

Their are plenty of weapons and ammo that is legal for police to use and illegal for non law enforcement. The issue is not that he carried it as a cop its that he now owns the damn thing as a non police.

Not only was Pulp Fiction a great movie, Tarantino had the genius to cast two perfect actors to deliver the most inane dialog ever written (don't mention Lucas, it's a sore spot with me) and make it funny. Two hit men on their way to a job talking about cheeseburgers, TV pilots and foot massages? Its absurd but they made it farking funny and believable.

Battlefield Earth however may be the worst movie ever filmed. Before you yell "Uwe Boll" or "Ed Wood" to me, Battlefield Earth had a huge budget, decent actors and while I didn't read it, I heard was a pretty good novel. Those to me are factors in determining the worst movie. Of course "Plan 9 From Outer Space" was appauling. But that's like laughing at a paraplegic for not making a jump shot.

But I digress.

those are certainly valid reasons for you, or anyone, not to like it. I have the same feelings about woody allen that you seem to have about tarantino. I personally dislike all of woody allen's his movies, but some of them are certainly great, and have influenced movie-making as an industry, just like pulp fiction has.

the gun was TAKEN from him when he they began investigating him WHILE HE WAS STILL A COP (read: before resignation).

How was he supposed to dispose of something after he was no longer allowed to have it legally when it wasn't in his possession? Nice try, though.

I actually have seen and OWN Battlefield Earth. It is fantastic for a laugh at the awfulness of it. Plus the crew from MST3K have a thing called Rifftrax (new window) where you buy a MP3 of them mocking the movie, synch it on an Ipod and play both at the same time. You get BE with the mocking wit of MST3k bashing it like it so richly deserves.

where did you get that picture? I was walking around Philly a couple weeks ago and saw Scientology protesters dressed like that and was wondering if it's from the same protest.

Just get him for jaywalking, and up the charges to "attempted murder" since by jaywalking he endangered the drivers on the road and any pedestrians on the sidewalk (the driver could have hit him-no airbags killed himself/or swerved to avoid him and run over people on the sidewalk.

I actually think with his attitude, the jury would be MORE than glad to put him away for 10-20y even on THOSE charges (at least he would go broke defending himself)
