Re: “Taking the plunge on Verrückt, the world's tallest water slide

Waited in line two hours, then the ride "broke-down". All the while, the folks who "reserved" their chance to ride go first. That's fine. Wasted hours of standing there and not getting to take the plunge.

Not a good experience. Won't be going back to Shitterbahn.

Re: “Cop Donald Hubbard said he had no choice when he shot and killed firefighter Anthony Bruno last fall. That's because he'd already made some bad decisions

So, let me get this straight: The newlywed Brunos wanted to get the cab driver to take their cousin home, as well as them. The cab driver refused and the couple, presumably drunk, started to exchange words, which lead the cab driver to call the wife the c-word.

Why couldn't they just drop it? So what, the third wheel would have had to get a ride elsewhere. Instead, a seemingly belligerent husband unnecessarily escalated the situation by assaulting the driver and then he leaves the scene by hiding into an alley? Um, that's your husband, lady. Why didn't you try and find him? I am assuming she was aware of his violent tendencies if she couldn't approach him.

Both parties are at fault. A hostile fireman and an off-duty officer who shouldn't have been involved in the first place. Case closed.

I just wanted to address the poor way the KCPD handled this situation. One of your boys is obviously wrong and made a huge mistake. Instead of owning up to it and handling it right, they went on to hide, lie, and not cooperate.
C'mon now, this lady lost her husband wrongfully. Own up to it Blue.

RTFLDGR-
where is the rest of your list of Hubbard's (lethal) mistakes?? all of which are against KCPD policy? no radio, leaving the property while off-duty, not calling for back-up, not asking bystanders to call for help, & most egregiously shooting to kill when a stun-gun or leg shot would've sufficed.
i read the entire article, did you?

You beat a cops head in the ground after assaulting another man (even if he forgot his radio) you can and most likely will be shot. Even a 5 year old knows that. Redtape or not.

The first one to f'ck up gets the majority of the blame because the first f'ck up gets it all rolling.

Obnoxious drunk + lying cop = one hell of a mess.

I hope they win this wrongful death lawsuit and Hubbard loses his job. Both men are at fault here but a sober Hubbard could've handled the situation much better and not used excessive force.

cops lie cause they have to. courts are screwy. cops kno if someone is guilty and to many criminals get away.

Re: “Cop Donald Hubbard said he had no choice when he shot and killed firefighter Anthony Bruno last fall. That's because he'd already made some bad decisions

mistake #1: too much booze


mistake #2: the reactionary-mind of the Bruno's to the "C-word". Bruno hits cabbie. Big mistake. There is no justification for this attack. Drunk fools have no business defending their woman's honor.

mistake #3: Bruno "runs" down the alley. He should have gone into the hotel and waited for the police after his attack. Take your ticket.

mistake #4: resisting arrest. If you are being arrested, give it up. Cops WILL taze or kill you if you resist or run.

mistake #5: Hubbard lies during the investigation. The videos demonstrate he is a liar time and again. No credibility with this witness.

Hubbard made mistakes. So did Bruno. Bruno's mistakes outweigh Hubbard's, as he was the first to assault the cabbie, then resisted arrest, then fought-back against Hubbard. Hubbard fights dirty, but that's what anybody would do in a hand-to-hand altercation.

This is a lesson to anybody: Don't fight the cops. They are licensed to KILL and will do so without any hesitation if you cross them.

Now we know why there are laws against recording the police. Officer Hubbard twice recorded, caught lying twice. That motorcyclist would have been in trouble because of Hubbards lies.
