  1. El Rey says:

    Common sense prevails over PC over-protectionism. It is a new day in America!

  2. BadPress says:

    Well, I guess people will know about his column now.

  3. the cynic says:

    I thought the whole deal was overwrought, too, until I hear the 911 calls. The kid may have been acting out, but Lieber was over the top. Apparently he threw a bigger fit than the kid. When the kid followed him out to the parking ot, witnesses say that Lieber nearly backed over him. Dad did not simply leave him at the restaurant.

    glad to hear common sense prevailed, and this whole “nearly backed over him” crap is just that

    take a second and think about it…dad’s in car backing out of parking spot, kid is starting to realize dad is actually calling his bluff…kid starts running toward car as car is moving backward at a whopping 4-5 mph and kid touches car/car touches kid and these witnesses/numbskulls tell the cops and anyone within earshot that “HE ALMOST RAN OVER THE POOR BOY”

    Guys, you need to check the first link. Its to a unrelated DO article.

    Yep, Daddy C, when I think of small-town Texas police, the first word that pops into my mind is “liberal.”

  8. Tey says:

    Oh, this happened in Watauga.

    You mean there was a cop in Watauga that wasn’t running traffic enforcement?

    That would be real news.

    @ Grumpy: Thanks, friend. Fixed.
