JACKSON, MI – Clearly growing agitated, Jackson County Circuit Judge John McBain threw off his robe and helped tackle to the ground a defiant man during a hearing on a personal protection order violation [for cyber stalking].

"Tase his ass right now," the judge shouted as he rushed toward Jacob Larson, who had been talking back to the judge and blamed his alleged stalking behavior on the woman he was pursuing.

  3. TO EVERYONE WHO REMEMBERS PRISCILLA, or PRIS, FROM FPM and GEEEZ...
    I got an email from her grandson tonight and the terrible news is that Pris passed away two weeks ago. I knew some of you'd remember her and want to know.
    Please join me in praying for comfort for Derek and the rest of their family. She was QUITE a patriot, quite a light in the blogosphere and, if you do remember her, I knew you'd want to know. God bless Priscilla and her family....she'll be missed.
