8-21 Scoot Show, Bob Mitchell 9pm, Police Stories

Aug 21, 2014|

Bob Mitchell…the REAL Robert Mitchell…is in for Scoot tonight…he has lots of great talk topics: When you are pulled over by a police officer, what is the first thing that goes thru your mind? A professor of homeland security at Colorado Tech University, who was an officer with the Los Angeles Police Department for 17 years, says basically if you don’t want to get shot, tazed, pepper-sprayed, struck with a baton or thrown to the ground, just do what I they tell you. Does that sound about right to you? Have you had more good or bad experiences with police officers? Is it okay to say bless you to a classmate when they sneeze in the classroom. A young girl, who claims she was standing up for her religious beliefs in the classroom, was suspended after breaking a class rule of saying "bless you" after a classmate sneezed. When Dyer County High School senior Kendra Turner said bless you to her classmate, she says her teacher told her that was for church. Whose side are you on?

A young girl claimed she was standing up for our religious beliefs in the classroom suspended after breaking a class rule. Because she said bless you after a classmate -- -- return said blood shoot to a classmate the teacher told her that that was for church. Along now does that crazy enough for you. A woman is suing the US bank in Kentucky her firing her after reporting four years of work because she told customers have a blessed day. And here's the deal she would tell people have a blessed -- have a blessed day you -- -- and you have a blessed day and they -- stop -- and she's a bullets. Infringing upon by of -- religious principles. And she. Well understand that actually was was cutting back or an -- adult -- to -- continuing to say but what happened is that. A customer told her god bless you. And she said god blushing too and the banks that pretty much that was the final straw so -- cancer.

You know then. They're not politics -- you know that's a bad idea at -- At that. Supplement and police also. Obviously the amount. Of and well you know when -- and the again. Who wouldn't. It. I don't think that would let them cool would it. In my search. And simply. And it matches. Who would them be so it's and that's good. It would entail. That the Kosovo.
