    Well partly tongue in cheek and partly, if I remember correctly the last move was a transfer of your wife. Or do I recall wrong. Anyway that is what I recalled and so yes I was joking and serious at the same time.

      • First time I have noticed this being done, Police shooting out of a vehicle thru the windshield, in a post-pursuit shootout, as shown on body-worn camera video.

        Intense Bodycam Footage Shows Police Shootout With Suspect Following a Pursuit
        (02 nin, 11 sec)

        Disclaimer: This video content is intended for educational and informational purposes only

        Las Cruces, New Mexico — On Wednesday, June 21, 2023, about 11:00 a.m., , Las Cruces police became aware of a pursuit involving New Mexico State Police and a white sport utility vehicle driven by 47-year-old Bobby Charles Crawford. Police learned Crawford had warrants for his arrest and was failing to stop for NMSP officers. The warrants for Crawford’s arrest were for violating terms of his probation and other felony crimes. Las Cruces Police assisted NMSP in the pursuit which ended with a PIT, a Precision Immobilization Technique, near the intersection of Holman Road and Arroyo Road. Preliminary information from the investigation indicates that Crawford discharged multiple rounds at responding officers. Some of the rounds fired by Crawford entered the front, passenger-side, window of one of the marked police units.

        Other rounds fired by Crawford entered through the windshield of a second officer’s marked unit. Both officers narrowly missed being struck by gunfire. Both officers received relatively minor injuries from glass shrapnel. In response to Crawford’s actions, three Las Cruces Police Department officers discharged their service weapons. Crawford was struck by at least one round. Crawford failed to comply with commands given by police until shortly before noon when he exited the SUV. After exiting the SUV and being detained, Crawford was provided first aid before he was airlifted to University Medical Center. Police recovered a weapon Crawford used. No major injuries were reported by the officers. Crawford is incarcerated in El Paso and waiting extradition to New Mexico where he is charged with two felony counts of attempted murder and three counts of aggravated assault on a peace officer. He also faces one count each of aggravated fleeing, possession of a firearm by a felon, and shooting at or from a motor vehicle.

          I've seen recent videos that this has become more prevalent. Don't know why but it may be the result of more aggresive police behavior or what...

                  And ..... straight over my head!
                  If you are emotionally invested in 'believing' something is true you have lost the ability to tell if it is true.

                    Aldi/Food Lion...regular everyday grocery stores...Lidl/H-T Publix are higher end grocery stores with higher quality products (especially for fresh items).

                      Publix is the higher end grocery store ... I just learned a lot about your point of view!
                      What would you call Whole Foods, Oliver's, Fresh Market, or Sprouts?
                      ADD: Trader Joe's ?
                      Trust me?

                        The H-T at Nags Head and Chapel Hill are better than the Publix near me!

                        I only know Whole Foods...I put that on the H-t in Chapel Hill & Durham...but those ones are really high end.

                        And I didn't even bring Wegman's into the discussion. It's kind of like my trips to the west coast...the Albertsons' I visited ran the gamut!

                        And I was stcking to brands that gunny living in the SE would know.
