Over the course of June 3 and 4, 2015, a devastating police raid systematically destroyed Lech's old home. The cops were responding to a crime that Lech had nothing to do with: A suspected shoplifter had barricaded himself inside the house after a chase, sparking a 19-hour standoff with a multi-jurisdictional SWAT team. Unleashing a display of force commonly reserved for the battlefield, the tactical team bombarded the building with high-caliber rifles, chemical agents, flash-bang grenades, remote-controlled robots, armored vehicles, and breaching rams--all to extract a petty thief with a handgun.

When it was over, Lech's house was completely unlivable. The City of Greenwood Village condemned it, forcing Lech to topple the wrecked structure. Making matters worse, the municipality refused to pay fair market value for the destruction.

Dude, you can't even put together an articulate post.
You can't even discuss C14 with Pingu and Mike without a humiliating badger.

Lemme see if I can come up with an interesting design on that theme.  I'll sleep on it.

Also, Missouri. No idea what slaves ate. Wow.
That's a systemic failure of Missouri as a state.

Fake eta: just like the compromise now that I think of it.

One of the biggest deterrents I've come across is that there actually are A LOT of people who are afraid they would be killed.

This part you don't have to worry about.

Don't worry. The Russians have bigger fish to fry.
