So just another a$$hole?

OdradekRex: So just another a$$hole?


...officers spotted a white Range Rover speeding in a residential neighborhood at around 60 to 70 mph.

What was your first clue?

Sounds like she tagged a Stop Sign. I don't know whether being pissed off caused her to tag the stop sign or tagging the stop sign pissed her off.

The department said officers later learned Morgan fled a crash on 26 Avenue Northeast and 1st Street Northeast where she hit a stop sign, leaving damage to her rear bumper.

The intersection of 26 Ave., NE & 1st St., NE

I don't understand how she damaged her rear bumper.

Did she back into it?  Did she cut a turn so closed that she hooked it?
 
2022-11-25 9:02:32 PM  
Buried about 2/3 of the way down is that she had previously fled from another crash; so she likely assumed that the police stopping her were doing so to arrest her for the crash she'd fled earlier. I'm assuming no evidence was found that she knew of the race, it was trying to drive through it?

Potentially. Of course, if you're relying on police affidavits for a mental health evaluation, well...

FTFA:  "..."Morgan was observed driving recklessly south on Coffee Pot Blvd NE...Snell Isle Bridge...Brightwater Boulevard...Lamara Way Northeast...Morgan fled a crash on 26 Avenue Northeast and 1st Street Northeast..."

"...In a statement sent to News Channel 8, the Department said "Our officers immediately identified the reckless driver as being a threat to the runners. She eluded several officers, drove past barricades and lighted police cars onto the street being used for the race. Thanks to the quick response of the officers on scene, they were able to stop her, and avert what could have ended up being tragic results...We shudder to think what would have happened had the threat reached Kettle Black Parkway.  Not only do we think our community is unprepared for a collision of that magnitude, but also the lame jokes on Fark would go beyond the pale..."

Multiple mass shootings (using the definition of four or more shot and injured or killed) every day -- we only hear about a few of them. And most of them don't involve mental illness.

As someone who suffered from mental illness early, you're far more likely to be someone's victim than to victimize another yourself.... which gave all the recent talk of "victim blaming" a very interesting wrinkle.

Drug influence, Alcohol influence, Mental Health influence, no.

Florida influence, on the other hand...

Karenitis isn't a recognized mental disorder yet. It will be when one of the drug companies finds that a side effect of one of their existing products inhibits it.

I haven't been to Florida in a long time, and, when I was there, I mostly in retirement communities (visiting elderly relatives), so, seriously, I didn't know anyone in Florida drove over 20 mph.

Florida folkses can hit the back end of their cars driving forward into their garages, and I have seen this happen.

According to the affidavits, there was no indication of alcohol or drug influence or mental health issues.

She was just being Florida. That's all that's needed.

"While under arrest, the defendant banged her head against the rear windows of the police cruiser, attempted to exit as her handcuffs were being adjusted, was combative, and OC Spray was utilized on two separate occasions in order to gain her compliance," a police statement said.

I'm not saying people don't commit mass murder for non-political reasons, but the people who commit mass murder have political reasons, always.

And I doubt she was going to run over 5,000 people. They would have run away or become lodged under vehicle, if she didn't run out of gas first.

You'd have to test her for drugs and alcohol to discover them in her system.

Actually all mass shootings in the US involve mental defects - the mental defects of a society (and its government) which places a higher value on the "freedom" to buy/own guns than on the lives of its citizens.

It's so nice that people can distill complex topics down to single issues. "It's politics! It's mental defects!"

Only if the definition of "mental defect" is so broad that "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore" is both political and a mental illness. :|

"OC Spray was utilized on two separate occasions in order to gain her compliance"

Remember when pepper spray was only going to be used in situations that warranted using a gun? Pepperidge Farms remembers.

Pepper Spray is not supposed to be for compliance.

No, the data points to that not being true. If mental illness caused people to be pro-gun, wouldn't that translate into most pro-gun people being mass shooters? Also, someone disagreeing with you, even about guns, doesn't mean they have a mental illness.

I mean, it's either state your credentials in your post and be made fun of, or don't state your credentials and just be another person rambling on about their opinions on the internet. Whatever.

Hankie Fest, on the subject of mass murderers, what do you know about those who almost seemed to make last minute decisions?  At the moment, there just isn't enough out there about this woman to know if she intended to mow people down, intended to get far away from a domestic incident, had a bottle of unopened rose stuck under the gas pedal, or anything.  If any of this fits a pattern within your field, what might it allow for assumptions at this time?
