PO2 Darren Harrity is an Awesome People™. For more than one reason.

A: He's a Coast Guard rescue swimmer.

B: The man is a swimming fool.

C: He may just have gills behind his ears like Kevin Costner in "Waterworld".

D: Winches? He don't need no stinkin' winches!!

Amazing dude. Must stay in shape as a male stripper.

Cracked has a list of The Six Most Epic One Man Armies In The History Of War. It's a Cracked article, so there are ads everywhere, brace yourself.

While "...In The History Of War" is debatable, I think you'll agree that those guys were definitely some Awesomely Badass Sumbitches™, a subsidiary of Awesome People™.

I saw that.

The ones who were killed were probably fortunate. Can you imagine any of them being browbeaten by a meter maid? :facepalm:

Ronda Rousey is an Awesome People™.

And what she did was pretty awesome.

No, I'm not talking about the 34 second ko the entire planet is talking about, although that was pretty awesome.

Yes, she is Awesome.

I agree with her. Her message is a little intermixed, sometimes she's condemning the people protesting that "#blacklivesmatter" but chastising the same people for ignoring the tragedy of the little girl who also died the same night. That is terrible. But I think her fire is misdirected (if you'll pardon the analogy); that's more the result of which "story" is more readily converted into something that can be broadcast/monetized. And the winner in that contest is the story about the dead adult, not the dead child. No one who knows about both deaths would cry for the guy who died in a gunfight with the cops and not about the little girl.

All of the admonitions she delivers are right on target, and completely true--EVEN WITHOUT ANY RACIAL QUALIFIERS. Don't murder. JFC. Who is exempt from that good idea? Pay attention to what your parents who love you and are trying to raise you well tell you. Uh huh, that's *not* a black thing. I'm sorry to hear that she thinks "White people don't care.". Lots of white people care. But that's a distracting quibble.

She's right on target. Awesome, definitely awesome.

In lieu of flowers, Rick would be honored if you would do the unexpected and unsolicited act of kindness for someone else today in his name.
Will do, Rick, will do.

She probably is thinking the lack of coverage in the media is they cater to what the white people care about, when it's actually , as you said, a juicier story.

David Perez, Fremont, CA, is an Awesome People™, and he is an awesome neighbor, who has some pretty awesome Facebook friends.

Cool! They even let the old man nail on the final shingle to complete the job.
