The Girls Scouts organization has recently come under fire from conservative activists and pundits for linking to a story articles about liberal women, including Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis (D).

While this is true, I have to question the relevance to the main story.  Something is being implied here that may or may not apply to this guy.  He could very well just be a cranky crackpot.

If there's a real connection, report on the connection.

It implies the girl scouts are filthy liberals who deserve being intimidated with the threat of gun violence? Just a shot in the dark. heh.

See, I thought it was "look how crazy these conservatives are, they'll pull a gun on a little girl for being part of a liberal org".

Nice headline, BTW subs.

A press release from the Riverside County Sheriff-Coroner's office that the father of the girl, who is a minor, contacted authorities after he saw 59-year-old John Dodrill point the gun at his daughter while she was selling cookies door-to-door on Sunday.

He's really young to have a child of Girl Scout cooking selling age, isn't he?
 
2014-02-03 02:11:58 PM
Yeah, you manly hero!  You stand your ground against that defenseless little girl!
 
2014-02-03 02:28:42 PM
Maybe the guy with the gun has a daughter of his own that was trying to sell cookies in his neighborhood and these farkers were moving into their territory.

When he tells this story in Freeperland the role of the Girl Scout will be played by 145 heavily-armed Black Panthers selling lifetime memberships in ACORN so they can get a free ride on the Soroscopter.

It would make as much sense to end the article with: Over 10,000 people are killed by firearms in the United States each year.

I see the background checks, registrations, assault weapons bans, magazine restrictions, licensing guidelines, and other strict gun laws in California are working to keep firearms out of the loonies hands.  Let's pass them everywhere so things like this don't happen!

.....wait.....

Oblig:

Girl scout cookies have done nothing but decrease in quality and quantity since the time of their introduction. A corporate organization uses Girl Scouts as free labor to schlep their crappy cookies, from which they reap a mighty profit, not having to spend money on marketing. In addition, there are other commercial varieties of cookies available that are as good or better than the GS varieties, while getting you more for your buck for a higher quality product. Before you jump in and claim that they're "helping" a worth cause, realize that the GS actually receive less than 10% of the gross revenue generated by cookie sales- you're doing more for them by handing them a five dollar bill to put directly into their coffers than by buying a dozen boxes of overpriced, low quality product.

/was a samoas devotee two decades ago
//they taste like coconut flavored sawdust laden with corn syrup now
///no, thin mints aren't crack. They're shiat. Go buy three trays of Keebler Grasshoppers for half the price and twice the number of cookies.

Goddamn, you're right. Haven't they seen what happens to dealers who try to double cross w/ cut product?

Sometimes you can tell by the looks in the eyes.

I'm not for anything extreme, but he did point a gun at Girl Scouts, so he should be pistol whipped until he has lost no more teeth than the number of girls he threatened.

I'm a reasonable man.

That would actually be quite appropriate. This story is newsworthy because of the risk of death involved when someone draws a gun on someone else.

Wendy's Chili: That last paragraph is bad, and the author should feel bad.


Don't forget the penultimate one:

The Riverside County Sheriff-Coroner's office has asked anyone with information about the case to call Officer Garcia #4162 at the Southwest Sheriff's Station at 951-696-3000.

So, dad and girl out selling cookies. Girl goes to door, homeowner pulls gun on girl. Dad sees it, calls cops. Why on earth would anyone but these three people have "information about the case"? I'm tempted to call Officer Garcia just to let him know that in some locations, "Samoas" are known as "Carmel De Lites." That might help crack this case wide open.

I think it's more about "related" current news. It happens in other articles, it's just more natural and less inviting of interpretation.

Folks seem uncomfortable with the fact that there is an entire industry aimed at angry, white, middle aged men that convinces them that the Girl Scouts are a dangerous, anti-American cult.

Get over it.

What an idiot!  As a gun owner and supporter of 2nd Amendment rights, it pisses me off every time some idiot does something like this.  I find that I cannot fault the police in this case one bit for arresting this idiot.  As for the rest of the article implying something about Girl Scouts and a "liberal" agenda, why is there a need to editorialize here?  Just report the crime or inappropriate behavior and move on.  I don't know one single gun owner who would point their weapon at a person knocking on their door, especially a little girl selling cookies!  In fact as a gun owner and father of both a cub scout and a girl scout...PLEASE oh PLEASE arrest idiots like this, they aren't representative of the VAST majority of gun owners and rational citizens.
