Deathfrogg: Befuddled: FTA: However, the drawing for the winning raffle ticket was held on a pontoon boat, out of the sight of spectators, under the Whitehair Bridge on the St. Johns River in DeLand.Organizers briefly addressed the small crowd from their pontoon boat, telling them that they would call the winner.Sounds like a scam.Yeah, they have raffles at one of the local HotRod shows every year, its always a nice 57 Chevy Belair or a mid-60s Impala or something. Seems like the only people that win those are in the same club thats raffling it off.

computerguyUT: I'd stick around for the raffle. No such thing as too many guns.After the apocalypse, I'm going to be alot more popular than the guy that collected stamps for a living.
LordOfThePings: "I think there's probably beginning to be more now than there were before because" even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.
beerrun: LordOfThePings: "I think there's probably beginning to be more now than there were before because" even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.Ok, I just tried reading that and my brain fell out of my head.
BraveNewCheneyWorld: Are we supposed to be offended that a gun is being raffled, even though the death didn't involve a gun?It looks like the cop intended to use his car to bump the guy, but didn't account for him tripping just before he got to him. Since I don't think cops should use their cars as taser, the cop should do time. It's unintentional, but he knew he was unnecessarily putting the man's life at great risk.
mod3072: The outrage over the guy's death I can understand, but what the hell difference does it make that the item raffled to raise money was a gun? Is it just the knee-jerk liberal "all guns are EEEEVIL!!" BS? If they truly wanted to go for bad taste, they would have raffled off a used police cruiser with a little front-end damage.Guns are a great item to use for a raffle. They are fairly expensive and people tend to want to have them, so you can generally sell a lot of tickets for a decent price. The fact that you might be ideologically opposed to guns or gun ownership means precisely jack shiat.

The zombie outbreak, the rapture, or the one where Obama personally starts driving tanks down Main Street USA.

Sorry, but I don't see why the office of Social Security needs millions of rounds of ammo. Might not be tanks down Main St. Might be Social Security or Fish and Game.
ReapTheChaos: Guns get raffled off all the time, there's absolutely nothing illegal about it in most states, you 'afraid of your own shadow' types need to get over yourselves.As far as the issue with the guy who got killed, once you begin to run from the police, you open yourself up to possible harm. Accidents happen, from watching the video it looks to me like the guy slipped and fell and the cop simply could stop in time. Nobody runs from the police for a simple traffic violation, this guy was obviously guilty of something and he didn't want to be caught. I have zero sympathy for him.
AverageAmericanGuy: Let's support our local murderer with a badge by auctioning off a weapon of mass destruction. Good call, idiots!
Joe Blowme: dude running, cop chasing... dude slips and falls infront of speeding car with expected results.... Lesson?: Don run from the police!!!!Family is just attention whoring now, they done got their settlement spent and now want more.
bindlestiff2600: morg: fusillade762: In the video, you can see Brown, who was running from police for a suspected seatbelt violationYou highlight "seatbelt violation" like it's some trivial crime. Not wearing your seatbelt can get you killed.not sure if trolliing or really means itI see you're new here.
DubyaHater: The family of the suspect received $550,000 in a settlement. That's more than Mr. Brown would have made in his lifetime knocking over liquor stores and gas stations.
