Sadly, this is the MPD's MO going back to Harold Breier back in the mid 60's to the mid 80's. They didn't have tasers back then, so they used their other weapons, and were 100% unapologetic about it back then.

Man do I wish police officers carried and used billy clubs nowadays. Some of these idiots really need a good beating so they can understand that they are not above the law.

Right now all I have is basically a cheap Walmart telescope(a gift that kind of triggered the fun). Does anyone know of a cheap set up for the average guy? I know some are using some sort of Nikon camera’s and getting some great shots, but that is outside my budget for right now. Looking for something for a beginner with a small budget($500-$600 at the absolute highest, lower would be better). Any ideas or experiences for the beginner? Or should I keep going with my Walmart telescope? I feel like I can do and see better, just I’m budget strapped.


Set my then 14 year old twin girls up with a Celestron LT60AZ a few years back. We were pretty happy with it - I don't remember exactly what I paid for it, but it seemed liked it was under $200 at Best Buy. Showed pretty good details of the Moon's surface. Not a lot of details of the planets but a little bit of color on a clear night. We were able to see Saturn's rings, a little of the banding on Jupiter as well as 3 or 4 of its moons on a good night. All in all some good educational fun for them. Some advice: always take time to read the manual and watch the instructional CD if it comes with one. We were set back a little bit not knowing which lens to use, how to spot planets etc., when we first got it.
