Nutso News

Oh, NOW the dumb shit lets me upload a picture. Not on the post where I wanted it. Duh.

Anyway... I couldn't let the night come to an end without having on about this.

Dateline: Chattanooga, Tennessee. A Nissan Quest carrying an adult and two 11-year-olds was exiting Interstate 24 Sunday when three shots were fired from a Dodge Caravan. At least one round hit the Nissan. Fortunately, no one was hurt. The driver of the Nissan returned to the Interstate, followed the Dodge, and called police. In fairly short order, the Dodge driver was pulled over and arrested.

The driver was -- get this -- a psychiatrist at the Veterans Administration hospital in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. His excuse to the cop who arrested him? "It was an act of road rage."

The doc was charged with aggravated assault and released Monday on $10,000 bond.

Here's my question: Is this psycho the right person to be placed in charge of the mental health of veterans with PTSD and other problems that require actual help from a professional who knows what he's doing?

If the cars were firing, why were the drivers involved? =P

Well, it's a good question. Why don't we ask the homicidal shrink? Don't look at the shiny thing, though, and don't listen when he says you're getting sleepy. Do you suppose he keeps a silencer in his drawer for office use?:)

I can't blame the doctor. If the car I was driving started shooting, I would freak out too I think

Before you freak, let's ask the doctor to psychoanalyze the car. Perhaps the car has issues.
