A tale of two Waffle Houses.

Image result for waffle house imagesI spend a lot of time in the South (Mrs. is from Louisiana), and whenever I get a chance I like to pop into one of those Waffle House establishments for breakfast.

So imagine how upset I was to hear that a killer walked into a Waffle House armed with an AR-15 style rifle, and that he proceeded to kill four people and wound four others before a brave and heroic customer sprung into action to stop the carnage. Sadly, the gunman got away, and as of me writing this post, he is still on the loose.

Image result for waffle house images travis rainkingIt should be interesting to see how this saga plays itself out. The last time a young white male committed an act like this and went on the run, he was apprehended and taken for a Happy Meal (or whatever it is they serve at Burger King) before being taken away to jail.

Let's contrast this to another Waffle House story which played itself out in Alabama. In this story     an African America lady has her clothes ripped from her body while being violently arrested by a bunch of white police officers. Her crime? Getting into a dispute over a plastic eating utensil with the manager.

"Clemons asked for plastic utensils while placing an order at the Waffle House on Industry Parkway in Saraland early Sunday morning, and was told by a female employee that plasticware costs 50 cents, according to Clemons-Howard.

When Clemons and Adams told the employee that they had not been charged for utensils when they purchased food from the same Waffle House the night before, the employee canceled the order, Clemons-Howard said. At that point Clemons asked for the contact information of the Waffle House district manager who oversees the Saraland location.

"They didn't even ask her to leave, she was waiting for them to give her the district manager's card so she could file a complaint on one of the waitresses," Clemons-Howard said. "When they went to go get the card, that's when the police showed up. The officer should've come in and said we need you to leave."

What happened after that was a miscarriage of justice, according to Clemons-Howard.
"The footage shows the story completely," she said, declining to go into further detail. "My nerves are very, very bad right now."

Mobile NAACP President David Smith said in a Sunday statement that the organization is gathering facts about the incident.

"In light of the current situation in our country -- such as the arrest of two young black men at a Philadelphia Starbucks coffee shop -- we felt it was important for our members to get a first-hand account of the incident, which has now gone viral on social media locally and across the country," Smith said.

Waffle House spokesperson Pat Warner did not respond to a request for comment Sunday afternoon." [Source]

After killing four people at a Waffle House in Tennessee, Travis Reinking  (unless he takes his own life) will be treated better, and with  more respect, than Ms. Clemons-Howard was in that Waffle House restaurant in Alabama.

Sadly, such is life in America these days.

I suppose you blacks should be lucky it wasn't one of those FRIED CHICKEN and waffle places, otherwise a black person probably would've been killed. Then again, you people are pretty good at doing it amongst yourselves in your own communities.

I also love Waffle Houses and go to them whenever I get the chance. It's very unfortunate that no place is safe anymore from psychotic white men with guns, whether it be a waffle place, a movie theater, a school, a mall, a church, or any number of places. We can all thank the tr**p administration and the poisonous mindset they spread for this.

Now why did Mr. Man need an Ar-15 again? They say it's for hunting so I guess he was hunting people. πŸ˜–

Waffle House shooter Travis Reinking told officials in May of 2016 that Taylor Swift was harassing him by stalking him and hacking his phone. He claimed that she had hacked his Netflix account, told him to meet her at a Dairy Queen, and then allegedly ran from him at that location. He said he chased her to the rooftop of a building, but she was gone.

Reinking insisted that he was telling the truth. He claimed he had proof on his phone, but refused to show it to authorities. Due to this incident, Tazewell County Sheriff Robert Huston believed that “there is evidence there is some mental health issues involved.”

Another incident in June, 2017 involved Reinking diving into a pool wearing only his underwear and a pink woman’s house coat. He took the coat off in the water, and the lifeguard told him to get out of the pool.

He got out, reportedly started yelling at lifeguards trying to entice a fight and then flashed his genitals, yelling that he was a man.

Shortly before the pool incident, Reinking had allegedly went to J&J Crane Co, where he had a shouting match with an employee while wearing the same pink woman’s coat. The employee claimed Reinking was brandishing an AR-15 rifle, which he eventually loaded into the trunk of his blue Mitsubishi before leaving.

Reinking was arrested for trying to break into the White House last summer, and afterwards had his guns confiscated by police in Illinois and his firearms license revoked.

Two months later in August of 2017, an officer noted that he had contact with Reinking once again, who was claiming that people were tapping into his phone and computer. He also said that “he had been hearing unknown people outside his residence barking like dogs.”

Reinking went on to say that people were also spying on him, claiming a man with a black t-shirt and an ear mic was watching him check out at the Morton Wal-Mart. He stated that this all started happening after he started writing to Taylor Swift. He was also convinced people were trying to get him to break the law, stating that he was out of state and saw a van with a sign that said “don’t steal the van.” He said he knew the sign was specifically for him to try to bait him into stealing the van, and was sick of people “messing with him.”

Again, like with the Parkland shooter, this guy was completely insane. We don't need gun laws changed, we need to be able to involuntarily hospitalize dangerous crazy people.

dinthebeast said...

"We don't need gun laws changed, we need to be able to involuntarily hospitalize dangerous crazy people."

But who gets to decide who is dangerously crazy? And do they get internet access in the "hospital"?
If not, all of the trolls here would be gone in one fell swoop, and that's just if they used the DSM-5.
If they used some legislated criterion, it would change every eight years and incarcerate whichever partisans who weren't in power, which Fergus and the Pig People would love until they lost their majorities.

Nope, Fascism sucks, no matter how you try to dress it up.

Perhaps we could try to get people with personality problems help when they are young and still susceptible to treatment, instead of throwing them in jail and pushing them beyond the reach of treatment?

Naw, that would cost money and raise the goddamn Koch brothers' taxes, so we have to let the society go down the shitter before we do anything THAT crazy.

Oh yeah:

It is extremely difficult for me to imagine anything close to how you felt, Field.

I cannot possibly imagine what it would feel like to go to a local breakfast restaurant and suddenly have my coffee, comfort food and family interrupted by a psychotic murderer.

I might understand what you are feeling if something like that happened in my hometown or environs.

Your man is a balls-out hero. He's probably equally humble.

Chicago ain't happening, you sroopid fucking wasicus. Drumpf put a complete stop to the violence last summer when he sent the feds into Chi town. You didn't forget Drumpf's boast about stopping the violence, did you?

If the police take Travis Reinking to a McDonald's after his arrest, does he get to keep the prize in his Happy Meal?

If not, that would be really mean--and possibly a case of police brutality.

mike from iowa said...

Trump has repeatedly pointed to the bloodshed in Chicago, weighing in during the campaign and since taking office. In January, Trump tweeted that he would “send in the feds,” which prompted some uncertainty in Chicago, where considerable federal resources were already on the ground and regularly collaborating with police.

“We always have been here,” David Coulson, a spokesman for the Chicago field division of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, said at the time. “We work very closely with the Chicago Police Department.”

[Trump says he may send ‘the feds’ to Chicago. Federal agents are already there.]

Trump’s past comments on the city have been critical of the local police and other local officials, including his January suggestion that the violence is “very easily fixable” and that local authorities were “not doing the job.”

Because the only way to fix the problem is to keep the dangerous thugs in jail, which means jailing the corrupt Chiraq officials like Tom Dart and Toni Preckwinkle and the judges who refuse to demand bail even when the cops catch them.

Be careful what you wish for.  You might get it.

Psychotic White males with murderous tendencies must be coddled with public sympathy, government-paid mental health services, and a Happy Meal!

And in the case of Travis Reinking, an autographed picture from Taylor Swift would be nice.

Actually they do. Blacks are over represented in mass shooters, and kill children and old people at higher rates.

mike from iowa said...

All these mass shootings have only one thing in common and that is the fucking guns!!!! Guns that were designed, first and foremost, to maximize the slaughter of human beings. And if one ain't enough to satisfy your blood lust bring a couple dozen more. Go ahead, Russia/ NRA will just lobby for more and deadlier guns to slaughter more and more people with.

mike from iowa said...

Posted this in another spot earlier today, mike from iowa said...

Stop me if you've heard this stoopid shit before- a woman with a 2 year old daughter and a concealed carry permit checks into a hotel. Placing the toddler on the bed, for some inexplicable reason the woman reaches into her purse to bring out the gun which fires and kills her daughter.

I am so fucking tired of hearing about guns that don't kill people killing people, especially innocent children. I am so fucking tired of hearing about responsible gun owners who do irresponsible things and get relatives and kids killed.

I am sure Russia/NRA will applaud the woman for defending her person from a nasty terrible 2 year old. Fuck you people right square in your brains-if you have one.

Death toll now up to nine.

Word is that the AR-15 van had a "fully automatic" transmission, which can reload a new gear in less than a second. In Canada you can purchase these killing machines without even getting a background check.

Well it remains to be seen if he's really crazy. He may just be 'acting' crazy to get a lighter sentence. As for the white officers, since he targeted, aimed and shot at black people, I guess they felt pretty safe that he's not gunning for whites.
