Boner Candidate #1: NOW I SEE WHY HE GOT A PRESIDENTIAL PARDON

Now that President Donald Trump has pardoned Joe Arpaio for violating the terms of a 2011 court order in a racial profiling case, the disgraced former Arizona sheriff has no interest in looking back and seeing what he might have done differently. In a chilling interview with Univision News, Arpaio said that he will “never” apologize for how his hunt for undocumented immigrants in Maricopa County inflicted fear on the Latino community. “An apology for doing my job? That would never happen,” Arpaio told the network. “I think if I stood on a big tower and I screamed at everyone, at all Hispanics, and I said that I disagreed with all the deportations and said ‘I love you all,’ it wouldn’t make any difference.” Arpaio’s pardon came a few weeks before Trump’s announcement last Tuesday that he was repealing the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals in six months unless Congress could make a deal to help the 800,000 “Dreamers” affected by the policy. He sees no problem with the timing of the two decisions, but suggests the Dreamers “must wait a little and have some confidence in the president.”

Boner Candidate #2: THIS IS A WARNING SHOT.

A Flint man is on probation after firing a “warning shot” into his neighbor’s leg while she stood on his front porch. An altercation occurred on Feb. 17 when the neighbor of Shawne Norval Felton, knocked three times on Felton’s front door on East Russell Avenue, according to a police report. The neighbor sought a refund of the $90 she had paid Felton’s roommate for home repairs after he didn’t finish the job. Instead, Felton answered the door, stepping out onto the front porch to choke the woman with one hand while placing a handgun to her left temple with the other, stating, ‘I’ll blow your head off,'” the neighbor told police. Felton, 42, and his roommate told police the woman attempted to force entry into the home, which she denied. It was then that Felton fired what he told officials was a “warning shot” into the woman’s leg, telling her to go home before Felton called 911, according to the police report.

Boner Candidate #3: THIS IS LAW AND ORDER IN ACTION

Thousands of people have donated more than $50,000 to an online campaign launched this weekend in support of a California hot dog vendor ticketed Saturday by a U.C. Berkeley police officer, who also took money from the man’s wallet.In a cellphone video, two campus police officers are seen shutting down an alleged unlicensed vending operation outside the university football stadium. Martin Flores, the bystander who recorded the incident, is heard protesting as one of the officers folds up dollar bills he’s seized from the vendor’s wallet. “That’s not right,” said Flores. “That’s how it works,” the officer responds. “We’ll take it to the judge and the judge can decide whether or not it’s right.”
