Breakfast Scramble

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
Beef Recall: 

LOS ANGELES – (AP [1])-The U.S. Department of Agriculture on Sunday recalled 143 million pounds of frozen beef from a Southern California slaughterhouse that is being investigated for mistreating cattle.

Danish Riots:

COPENHAGEN (Reuters [2]) – Bands of youths set fire to cars, buses and schools in Denmark on Saturday, the seventh night of rioting and vandalism in the capital Copenhagen and other Danish cities, police said on Sunday.

NIU Shootings:

DEKALB, Ill. -(AP [3])- What people initially told police about the Northern Illinois University shooter – a portrait of a happy, stable young man who was a bright, helpful scholar – didn’t add up.

Now investigators searching for what triggered Thursday’s bloody attack, in which five students were killed and several injured before Steven Phillip Kazmierczak committed suicide, are finding some unsettling details.

Berkley, poetic justice:

BERKELEY, Calif. – (Fox News [4]) The tab for just overtime pay for Berkeley cops to keep the peace at Tuesday’s Marine protest outside City Hall was reported to be $93,000.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, about 140 Berkeley police worked at the protest, which drew more than 2,000 demonstrators. Anti-war groups such as Code Pink mixed with pro-military groups, rallied over whether lawmakers should change their anti-Marine position.

If it wee proposed to fine the City of Berkley ninety-three thousand dollars, the ACLU types woiuld throw a hissy fie.   Yet the practical effect of having to pay police overtime is much the same, minus the leftarded moaning.
