Awesome television ad featuring retired San Jose Police Chief Joseph McNamara. It feels reassuring to see a previous (and intellectual!) member of law enforcement urging Californians to vote YES on Prop 19 this November. Learn more about the propostion at yeson19.com. My fingers are crossed!
“Let’s be honest: The war against marijuana has failed. I know from 35 years in law enforcement. Today, it’s easier for a teenager to buy pot than beer. Proposition 19 will tax and control marijuana just like alcohol. It will generate billions of dollars for local communities, allow police to focus on violent crimes, and put drug cartels out of business. Join me and many others in law enforcement. Vote YES on Proposition 19!”
Here’s another outrageous news broadcast where the reporter, Mark Jones, was somehow able to maintain his composure while interviewing crazy locals.
When this was originally broadcast on KRON 4 back in 2003, whistle tips were a fad in California that were driving whole neighborhoods insane. As seen in the video, they are a piece of metal installed inside a car’s muffler that makes an insanely loud noise that can be heard almost a mile away when the car is in motion. (“The whistles go whooo!“) Since this news report, a bill was introduced and signed into law early 2004 that banned whistle tips in California.
But this video was an instant classic that’s still circulating the net seven years later.. all thanks to Bubb Rubb and Lil’ Sis. These two “whistle fans” enthusiastically share their love of the tip and then recklessly and illegally drive away while still on camera.
“It’s decoration man, it’s just for decoration. That’s it and that’s all.”
Reporter: “You have it on your car?” Lil’ Sis: “Yeah, I got it on my car!” Reporter (super serious voice over): “It was being installed on their car.”
