Stop screwing up the fast food orders - K?

SEPTEMBER 21--Angered that his Taco Bell drive-thru order failed to include hot sauce, a Missouri man returned to the fast food restaurant and allegedly pulled a shotgun on an employee, who fled in fear from the takeout window.

Yes, pulled a shotgun ... that seems strange ... probably just a behavior anomaly, right?  Totally out of character.

The bizarre incident Saturday evening resulted in the arrest of Jeremy Combs, a 30-year-old convicted felon, on both state and federal charges. Combs is pictured in the below mug shot.

OHHHH, a CONVICTED felon!  NOW, I understand.  Of course, past behavior is no indicator of future behavior, right?  Remember, we have to keep our wits about us lest we unduly jump to conclusions.  What's that you say?  "past behavior is the best predictor of future behavior?"  Oh.

According to a U.S. District Court complaint, investigators with the Lee’s Summit Police Department interviewed Combs Sunday afternoon about the incident. Combs admitted that he had purchased several items from Taco Bell, only to return home to discover “the Taco Bell employee had failed to include his…hot sauce.”  Well, folks, let me tell youuuuuu ... this burned his chapps something fierce. After all why should he have to take ten seconds to check the bag himself?

While Combs told cops that he “became upset and drove back to the Taco Bell to confront the employee,” he denied brandishing a shotgun at the drive-thru worker. What me brandish a shotgun?  Brandish ... erm, I mean "banish" the thought. That employee must be seeing things.  He said the item was actually a tire iron, a claim police say is belied by Taco Bell surveillance footage showing Combs in his Ford F-150 truck.  Heh, I like the word "belied."  I also like the word "slake."  No, slake is not in this article but I thought I'd mention it.

During a subsequent search of Combs’s residence, police discovered a Mossberg shotgun with live rounds of ammunition affixed to its side (the weapon was hidden under the mattress in Combs’s bedroom). What?  Who would EVER thought to look under the mattress for a gun? Sounds like the cops really got lucky there, huh? He's probably the first evil genius felon who ever thought of hiding a gun under his mattress.  In a conversation Monday with a Lee’s Summit detective, Combs reportedly copped to possessing the shotgun at Taco Bell, adding that he bought the weapon--which did not have a serial number--“from ‘Mark’ at a drug house in Independence, Missouri.”  My, my. No serial number?  Don't know the guy's name?  What a series of coinkydinks.  Very believable though ... just rotten luck is all.

The incarcerated Combs is scheduled for a detention hearing tomorrow in federal court in Kansas City. According to the criminal complaint, Combs’s rap sheet includes 14 felony arrests and three felony convictions. (3 pages) From The Smoking Gun::

Well, I have a question.  What the hell is this guy doing out of jail?  Hey, never mind the other ELEVEN times he was arrested for felonies ... those don't count.  Only the convictions count ... stop jumping to conclusions.

See, the problem is these jackasses hurt/maim/kill our loved ones.  They never kill the geniuses who insist on letting them out of jail over and over and over.  And yet, these people who enable the criminals are not held to account for their actions/decisions.  I think that needs to change ... along with the overhaul of our "justice system" in general.
