Aspiring LAPD officer Dave Oliva joined us in our first hour as some street activity was turning ugly outside the Staples Center, where the LA Lakers has just won the NBA title. Phil wondered openly where the police were with cars getting jumped on and fires getting set. Dave said that cops have to “weigh their options before they go in.” Do they want to “go home because their shift is over or go ahead and help out.” He also told Phil to be careful about flooring it to get out of there if he were stuck because he may find a crushed sombrero and poncho under the car and that means he ran over an illegal. “People’ll think you’re a Minuteman!”
Steve Bosell also joined us this evening to tell us his daughter’s middle school class has done it again. He has seen the light. He though a little boy wearing toy soldiers on his hat was okay but his daughter and her middle school class, teachers and administration taught him what a warmonger he is. As Steve was being screamed at by one caller, his daughter passed him a question to ask the woman. “My daughter wants to know if, when you sit on your husband’s chest…” Phil cut him off…but not before Steve cried for the scumbag that died in front of a firing squad last night in Utah.
