McClatchy tells us that 95,000 Barrels a day (almost 4,000,000 gallons per day) is the more accurate amount of oil being spewed into our Gulf.
As usual, the officials lie.
But thank God for Britt Hume. The ocean can handle it:
Lt Tanya Mayhew decided that dentistry is her next gig (What? Rumors of layoffs?)
This finely smiling woman apparently saw an opportunity to fix her own god awful grin by taking the grill from an inmate forcibly:
Grill ripped from man’s teeth at Metro jail

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Lawyers in Nashville have reached a settlement after a Davidson County sheriff’s lieutenant ripped the grill off a man’s teeth at the Metro jail.
Anthony McCoy was arrested in November and brought to the jail for not paying child support.
McCoy was told to remove the jewelry from his teeth but said he couldn’t as the grill was cemented on.
McCoy’s attorney, David Raybin, told News 2 Lt. Tanya Mayhew “put on some rubber gloves, reached into his mouth and yanked and pulled out the grill along with the enamel off of four of his teeth.”
Raybin said the grill was yanked out of his client’s mouth in front of 20 other inmates and half a dozen staff members.
“He then started spitting up blood, bits of teeth and tissue and they told him just to get back in line,” Raybin said of McCoy, adding his client suffered unnecessarily inside the Davidson County jail for 10 days before he received proper medical treatment.
“It was hell. The man was suffering,” Raybin told News 2 Tuesday. “Everyone has had problems with their teeth. Can you imagine being in jail with no help, no medical attention and having the enamel of four of your teeth destroyed? It was an agony for him. The medical people didn’t do zip for him.”
Raybin said Lt. Mayhew violated a number of sheriff’s department policies and hopes the nearly $100,000 settlement the city will pay McCoy prevents something similar from ever happening again.
Anthony McCoy had is teeth broken and other damage by force. This Superiority Complex that some cops have is getting worse as things get worse.
At least in Mr McCoy’s case, he will be compensated (altho I don’t think it is enough). The worst part is that Lt Mayhew has gotten what amounts to less than a slap on the wrist (as do all the brutalizing cops in this Police State).
