  1. Why would you post that? It's just disturbing.

  2. If this is your idea of a "Memorial Day" tribute, you have royally fucked up. What is the point of trotting out video footage that is *12 years 4 months* old??? If this is your idea of damning the American culture, well then fuck you too. I sincerely doubt you have the spine to confront this sort of character were you deputized - by choice. You just stay indoors trolling the "tubes" for self righteous indulgences you dipshit.

  3. WTF is up with showing a snuff film?

    I yanked your link off my sidebar as quickly as you posted this and I reviewed it. How horrid of you to do this to those who support your blog.

    No more.

    i've seen this many years ago, was shocked as well, but i'm not gonna condemn Joanne : she did not kill or post it first

  7. Hello, Ms Casey. Cunningly, I read the title of the post - "Redneck kills police officer" - and thought: "hmm, that's not for me". So I didn't watch it, don't intend to watch it and have no interest, come to think of it, in watching it at all. I get queasy around violence.

    Regrettably, then, I’m not in a position to force myself to take offence and make a dramatic declaration of disapproval. Even more regrettably, I happen to believe in the freedom of expression and would have struggled, therefore, to force myself to feel sufficient outrage to drop you as a friend – had we been friends in the first place. Imagine my disappointment.

    Kind regards etc…

  8. It disturbed me too, but typical of me, would deliberately post something that leaves an emotional scar on everyone.

    As per usual, more complaints than compliments. The material I post, funny or sad, just reflects what interests or affects me on an emotional level.

    Thanks to those of you who get me.

  11. Americans - don't you just love them?

  12. Not at all what i would expect from this blog, but it's something i hadn't seen and made me think. Anyone who had their shit freaked by this needs to slow down and not look at the internet, it's not for them.

  15. Anonymous: It's not "Memorial Day" all over the world. The United States is only a little bit of America, let alone the world. Why should non-U.S. bloggers post in sympathy with your local traditions?

    This is out there on youtube. As it's an embedded police camera, an american police force must have released it first.

    The blog is called "I have seen the whole of the internet"
    That suggests that its content may vary like that of the greater internet. It may contain nuts.

    Footage like this that shows us a different side of our world to fluffy puppies and lolcats. If that's what you want to watch, fine, do that. But don't shoot the messenger when you find out there's bad stuff out there.

  16. Agree with soubriquet. Having watched it, looks like the cop made a mistake going after the redneck after the first confrontation. This proved to be a fatal mistake.

  17. i want to add my voice to those who get you. from the first time i found your blog, i knew there might stuff that didn't interest me, but more often than not, you have continued to surprise me, make me laugh, enlighten me, startle me and entertain me. thank you. xoxox

  18. I actually did not know that there was all that kind of stuff on youtube, but I smartly did not watch it, nor any of the recommendations alongside.

  19. I feel like I should apologize for my American counter-parts, who not only forget that the world does not revolve around us (no matter how hard we wish it would) but in typical fashion conveniently forgot part of what makes both of our countries great is the amount of liberty given to us in regards to what we say and write (repost?)

    On that note I would just like to add that I enjoy your blog from the cats to music to the occasional dark turn.

  20. Thanks to all my good friends that don't want to burn me at the stake. There is a nasty world out there but it's beneficial to keep it real and feel alive.

    How many people would give to charities if they didn't see images of people starving, getting beaten, animal cruelty and so on? I donate monthly to Concern, Amnesty International and Dogs Trust and probably wouldn't if I hadn't been shocked into it.

    If you don't want to see it, switch off, but it has still happened.

  21. Yes Michael it's all you fault ;-)

  22. I'm not ignoring you -- just on vacation. Hey, you gave more warning in your title than most TV shows and movies do.

  23. And ye shall de damned to burn in hell with needles in your eyes blogging beach from Mordor ! And be exterminated by Daleks !

  24. The internet can contain bias bullshit too. It does not always represent the truth simply because it is posted somewhere on the internet.
    And as far as the cop getting shot, he should have shot that redneck when he was by the pickup truck not putting the gun down.Maybe not killed him but put him out of commission so he could not shoot someone.
    And I would like to thank you Brits for the current oil spill in our Gulf ( Courtesy of British Petroleum)as you feel it is necessary to mock Americans.

  25. To me, the interesting aspect of this video is that I imagine it's part of the curriculum of all police recruit academies, at least in the US. This vid is probably one reason why people who don't immediately do what they're told by officers are tazed without a thought.

  27. Don't let your new found detractors keep you up at night, Joanne. I come to your blog for the surprises. I didn't get the impression that humor was implied in posting this so I for one am not concerned. I elected not to watch it because my motto is to move on if a post doesn't suit me. As friendly advice this sort of thing is probably best left to the murky waters of the Ogrish forums, which is where I go if I want to see less polished news and humanity without makeup.

  28. Thanks everyone...I never knew my blog attracted so many delightful articulate people :-)

  29. "Come for the video, stay for the comments."

    What part of "the whole of the internet" didn't they understand?

  30. Keep on blogging the "whole" of the internet JC.

  31. One of my most commented posts, ever?

  32. I wouldn't know, Ms Casey, as I haven't got round to trawling your archives (yet). You certainly seemed to touch a nerve, though, with this posting. I think Gary has it about right - keep on blogging the "whole" of the internet.

    I'm still slightly amazed that people didn't take heed of the title of this post and, more significantly, perhaps, the title of the blog itself. I feel you gave and give perfectly adequate warning on both counts. Everything else is just so much blah.

    Toot-toot and tally-ho etc....(not sure why I just said that - I suddenly felt jaunty, I imagine)

  33. TPE, your support is making me feel jaunty, too :-)

  34. Typical of America. It will be funny to watch that insipid country fall to the Chinese.

    BP is the United States' hundredth largest donor to political campaigns, having contributed more than US$5 million since 1990
    BP is its name since 01 May 2001
    Just because it is a British company doesn't mean that the British should take the shit for their issues(can you hear me Obama?)
    Weren't the rigs manufactured in America by an American firm?
    Why does Halliburton keep turning up in reports, are they British?

    Having said that, it is still a terrible loss of life and a terrible environmental disaster that has to be sorted out now and measures put in place so that it doesn't happen again.
