Leftist Radio Host Threatens To Endanger Public By Calling In False Police Reports When He Sees Legal Gun Possession

Libtalker Mike Malloy Vows To Start Panic If He Sees Open Carry Permit Holder With Gun – Newsbusters

Look no further for a textbook example of what passes for logic from a liberal.

If there’s one thing leftist radio host Mike Malloy really hates, or so he claims, it is suffering from the improper use of firearms. Being a gun owner, he doesn’t hate guns themselves or want them banned, based on what he’s said on his show. More accurately, the thing he seems to hate most is when conservatives own guns. (Audio after the jump)

Malloy, a former CNN news writer and Air America Radio host, seldom lets an hour pass without complaining about a new law in Georgia that allows concealed carry permit holders to bring guns to bars, supermarkets, municipal buildings and some parts of airports.

Those who hold open carry permits and brandish their guns in public are another target of Malloy’s ire, to the point that Malloy recently made this bizarre threat (audio) -

I guess what I’ll do if I’m ever in that situation and I see one of these half-witted yahoos walking in with a weapon, high-caliber rifle like that, I’ll just put on a berserk act. I will just start screaming Gun! Gun! Gun! Watch out, everybody hit the deck! Guns! Guns! Everybody! And then dial 911 and I will say, shots fired, which will bring every g**-damned cop within 15 miles. And then the half-wits with the long guns are going to panic and they’re going to run out of the store and if that rifle isn’t shouldered properly, the cop is going to take a look at that and put a bullet right in their forehead.

And Mike Malloy’s day will be complete.

.

.
In his brave, tireless efforts to stop senseless injuries and deaths from firearms, Malloy vows to start a panic in a public area – which would easily result in injuries and possibly fatalities. Clearly it has not crossed Malloy’s fevered mind that if he was actually opposed to senseless injuries and deaths, the last thing he would do is suggest what he did. Guess who goes to jail if you shout fire when there is none in a crowded theater, Mike? Diverting police with bogus 911 calls might prevent them from helping those in genuine distress. You really ought to think these things through.

This is what you can expect from a man who has also threatened to shoot an unnamed National Rifle Association board member – another example of Malloy’s meager efforts to cut down on violence.

Reporter Tries To Ask Obama’s EPA Chief A Question, Is Promptly Hauled Off By Capital Police

A Reporter Tried To Ask The EPA Chief A Question; You’ll Never Guess What Happened Next – TPNN

.

.
Ari Natter, renewables and energy efficiency reporter for Bloomberg BNA, tweeted today that he was detained by Capitol Hill police. His crime? He was simply doing his job. Natter attended the American Council On Renewable Energy conference to cover the event. EPA chief Gina McCarthy was a speaker. After she made her remarks, Natter attempted to ask her a question. After all, that is what reporters do. The content of the question was not disclosed in Natter’s tweets, but he did tweet about his experience of being detained. These tweets were picked up and reported initially by the Daily Caller.

Natter was detained while covering the American Council On Renewable Energy conference, where McCarthy spoke. Also speaking at the conference was Rhode Island Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, a staunch supporter of green energy who regularly takes the Senate floor to sound the alarm on global warming.

McCarthy spoke about renewable energy issues, including the EPA’s proposal to cut back the amount of ethanol refiners are required to blend into gasoline annually to avoid economic calamity. She also talked about the Obama administration’s view that energy and environmental policy go hand in hand.

While the question asked by Natter that led to his detainment is not known, here is what he tweeted just prior to his ‘arrest’.

Natter was subsequently released after police checked with their superiors and ran a background check to determine if his press credentials were valid. They were, so they let him go.

Given the Obama administration’s scandals involving attacks on freedom of the press with the spying on of James Rosen; seizing the phone records of AP reporters; and his attempted plan to monitor news rooms, this latest incident will undoubtedly make one wonder about the future of a free press under an Obama presidency.

Woman Arrested After Police Find Seven Dead Babies Stuffed Into Shoeboxes In Garage

Police Arrest Woman After Finding Seven Dead Babies In Shoeboxes In Garage – Weasel Zippers

.

.
Horrible.

Via Fox News:

Police accused a Utah woman of killing seven babies she gave birth to over 10 years after they found the tiny bodies stuffed in cardboard boxes in the garage of her former home.

Megan Huntsman lived in the Pleasant Grove home until three years ago and was arrested Sunday. Police say the 39-year-old birthed the infants from 1996 to 2006.

Police Capt. Michael Roberts says officers responded to a call Saturday from Huntsman’s estranged husband about a dead infant at the home about 35 miles south of Salt Lake City. Officers then discovered the six other bodies.

Roberts says the man had lived with Huntsman but isn’t a person of interest.

Huntsman was booked into jail on six counts of murder. Roberts says it wasn’t clear if she has an attorney.

Kiev In Chaos As Protesters Clash With Police (Pictures / Videos)

Ukraine: Protesters And Police Clash On Worst Day Of Kiev Bloodshed – The Guardian

.

.
Three months of confrontation in Ukraine between the president and a large protest movement reached its peak on Tuesday night in the worst bloodshed since the country separated from Moscow more than two decades ago, with more than 20 people reported killed as riot police moved in to clear Kiev’s Independence Square, the crucible of the anti-government activism.

.

.
Hopes for a settlement of the crisis went up in smoke amid scenes of rioting, burning buildings, police bombings and rubber bullets that also left up to 500 people injured.

.

.
A large section of the protest camp in the capital, Kiev, was engulfed in flames on Tuesday night as police advanced on the demonstrators using water cannons and stun grenades.

.

.
The security services had earlier issued a warning, ordering tens of thousands of protesters to get off the streets by Tuesday evening or face a crackdown.

.

.
The violence, the worst since a government-opposition confrontation erupted last November, came after President Viktor Yanukovych, the main target of the protests, stalled on outlines of an agreement to appoint a new technocratic coalition government or have his powers cut back.

.

.
The president issued a statement warning leaders of the opposition to dissociate themselves from radicals, otherwise he would “talk differently” with them. Yanukovych said some members of the anti-government opposition had crossed a line when they called on supporters to bring weapons to the demonstration in Kiev. The president called those people “criminals” and said they would face justice in court.

.

.
By Wednesday morning the Ukraine health ministry was putting the death toll at 25, the Reuters news agency reported. This included both civilians and security forces.

.

.
Columns of riot police sought to banish crowds of protesters from encroaching on the country’s parliament, while demonstrators ransacked offices of Yanukovych’s political party.

.

.
“Extremists are killing innocents on the streets of the capital, burning buildings and cars,” the statement from the security services said. “Unless the disorder stops, we will have to restore order by all means envisaged by law.”

.

.
The White House asked Yanukovych to “exercise maximum restraint”. But video footage from Kiev showed heavily armed riot police firing Kalashnikovs. Both police and opposition leaders called on women and children to leave the protest camp in Independence Square, known as the Maidan, as riot police began their assault.

.

.
Vitali Klitschko, an opposition leader and former world heavyweight boxing champion, said: “The government has deliberately organised a provocation to clear Independence Square with blood and violence and to destroy the protests and the activists.”

.

.
After late-night talks with Yanukovych on how to end the violence, Klitschko said there had been no resolution. “The government must immediately withdraw troops and put an end to the bloody conflict, because people are dying. I told Yanukovych this. How can we hold talks while blood is being shed?” Yanukovych is due to meet a trio of opposition leaders on Wednesday when he is expected to propose a new prime minister.

.

.
There were reports that riot police were firing smoke and stun grenades. Opposition sources said police snipers were firing on demonstrators from rooftops. According to reports, security services began moving in at 8pm local time after announcing over loudspeakers that they were about to conduct “an anti-terror operation”.

.

.
The foreign ministries of Ukraine and Russia earlier issued what appeared to be co-ordinated statements blaming Europe for fomenting the unrest. It appeared that the Kremlin had a hand in the political machinations behind the eruption and the crackdown. As well as blaming Europe for the rioting, it offered $2bn (£1.2m) to Yanukovych and sought to influence the appointment of the new prime minister.

.

.
“The violent clashes today have to date resulted in deaths by bullets and hundreds of injuries, including seven people in a critical position,” said protesters in a statement.

.

.
“Snipers posted on roofs are targeting the heads and chests of protesters. Ambulances blocked by security forces are not able to provide first aid to the injured,” it continued.

.

.
Protesters, some of them armed with air pistols and petrol bombs, hurled bricks and paving stones at ranks of riot police, who used rubber bullets, smoke and stun grenades. Many of the injuries were said to have been head wounds from being struck by grenades.

.

.
The EU’s foreign policy chief, Catherine Ashton, said she was “deeply worried about the grave new escalation”. UN secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, called for restraint and dialogue, while Washington said it was appalled by the violence and demanded that Yanukovych must “de-escalate the situation”. Nato’s secretary-general, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, urged “all parties to refrain from violence and to urgently resume dialogue, including through the parliamentary process”.

.

.
While chaos and bloodshed reigned on the streets of central Kiev, there were also scenes of mayhem inside parliament, where opposition leaders sought to inaugurate moves curbing the powers of the president and making Ukraine more of a parliamentary than a presidential system.

.

.
The opposition tried to table a resolution returning the country to its 2004 constitution, which would have given parliament the authority to appoint a new prime minister and cabinet and strip Yanukovych of many of his powers.

.

.
The president’s allies in parliament simply blocked the move, refusing to have the resolution registered. Yanukovych orchestrated changes to the 2004 constitution after taking power in 2010 and vesting most powers in his own office.

.

.
Earlier, several thousand nationalists led by the Svoboda [freedom] party converged on a park near the parliament and tried to move on the legislature, only to be blocked by riot police who also closed down the city centre metro system.

.

.
The flare-up and apparent readiness for a draconian crackdown followed several days of signs that the crisis was ebbing and compromises were being reached.

.

.
Protesters evacuated several buildings they had been occupying for months, including Kiev city hall, which was set ablaze.

.

.
In recent days authorities have released more than 240 people detained during the unrest under an amnesty.

.

.
Last November confrontation was sparked when Yanukovych abruptly ditched years of negotiations with the EU on a political and free trade pact, turning instead to Moscow for $15bn-worth of cheap loans and discounted gas supplies.

.

.
Moscow promptly responded by buying $3bn-worth of Ukrainian bonds, but then stopped lending last month when Yanukovych sacrificed his pro-Kremlin prime minister, Mykola Azarov.

.

.
The offer on Tuesday of a new $2bn loan was seen as tied to Yanukovych making the “right” choice for new prime minister.

.

.
The swiftness of the Russian moves in seeking to outwit the EU in what rapidly snowballed into a contest for influence in Ukraine has exposed the lumbering nature of European diplomacy and policy-making in a crisis in a neighbouring state.

.

.
The opposition leaders and protesters are seeking to unseat Yanukovych and force early presidential elections.

.

.
Vitali Klitschko told parliament Yanukovych should “call snap presidential and parliamentary elections. Do it. It’s the only way to solve the issue.”

Over 20 Teachers Sided With Child Rapist Colleague Over Victim, Refused To Cooperate With Police

Prosecutor: Many Teachers Refused To Cooperate With Investigation Of Molester Colleague – EAGnews

.

.
Teachers play an incredibly important role in children’s lives.

Perhaps their most fundamental responsibility is to make sure the kids entrusted to them are safe when they are in school, five days per week, six or seven hours per day.

That’s why law enforcement officials in Rochester, New York are so baffled and upset by the lack of cooperation they received from several teachers and school administrators who had worked with Matthew LoMaglio, an elementary gym teacher who was convicted last month of sexually molesting an 8-year-old male student during the 2006-07 school year.

Many in the community were also surprised and disappointed that more than 20 educators wrote to the court in the pre-sentencing phase, expressing support for LoMagio but little or no sympathy for the young victim.

“Some of the people (on the school staff) who were cooperative told us there was talk at school, sort of like ‘Are you for the teacher or for the student,’” Kyle Rossi, the assistant district attorney who tried the case against LoMaglio, told EAGnews. “It was very disappointing to make contact with teachers who wouldn’t give us the time of day until they were instructed to.

“I would say that, being in that position, they have a special duty to recognize issues and protect kids. I would think it has more do to with ignorance than anything else.”

LoMaglio, 37, was found guilty in November of second degree sexual conduct against a child and endangering the welfare of a child, according to the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle. Last week he was sentenced to four years in prison by New York State Supreme Court Justice Joanne Winslow.

The victim’s mother had been worried about her son and his relationship with LoMaglio since 2006-07, when the boy was a second-grader and a student in LoMaglio’s gym class at Rochester School 19. The victim reportedly had nightmares about being raped by the teacher, although he never came forward with allegations of actual abuse, Rossi said.

The boy’s mother visited the school and had him removed from the gym class at the time, according to newspaper reports.

In 2012 the boy wrote a letter to his older brother, explaining how he had been assaulted by LoMaglio, but apparently never meant to deliver it. He hid the letter in his bedroom, where a younger brother found it and turned it over to their parents, according to Rossi.

LoMaglio maintained his innocence throughout the trial, then acknowledged his guilt to a counselor during the sentencing phase, Rossi said. His attorney claimed he was no longer a threat to the community and tried to arrange a sentence of probation, but the judge decided to send him to prison.

The young victim, now 15, helped secure the conviction by having the courage to testify in open court against his abuser.

“I’m exceptionally proud of the victim in this case,” Rossi told the local newpaper following the conviction. “He displayed a tremendous amount of courage by coming forward and disclosing the horrible things that happened to him, and because of that courage, the abuser will face justice.”

But building a case against LoMaglio was not easy, because a significant number of teachers and other school employees who had worked with the gym teacher over the years refused to cooperate with police and prosecutors during the investigation, Rossi said.

“I would say that many teachers and administrators at several schools where this guy had taught wouldn’t talk to us at all,” Rossi said. “We ran into cold shoulders all the way around. They would say things like ‘nothing happened here’ and ‘I don’t know anything, I don’t want to talk about anything.

“One person even told a police investigator ‘don’t call me again.’ Some were even rude.”

Rossi stressed that he has no reason to believe that anyone on the school staff had direct knowledge of the crimes being committed. But he also said the investigation was more difficult than it had to be because of the lack of cooperation from some school employees.

“They could have talked to us about practices and protocals,” Rossi said. “These were people who could have helped us understand what the normal practices were in the school when this was going on. That would have helped us understand how this teacher had access to this kid. There were plenty of people who wouldn’t even tell us those neutral things.

“It was problematic for us. No one was volunteering to help. There were people who complied – they were cooperative because it was a police investigation – but nobody was excited to participate. There were teachers who simply refused to speak to us.”

Rossi said he was also troubled by the 22 letters the court received from various teachers, expressing support for LoMaglio. He said he is not authorized to turn over the letters to the public or divulge the names of the teachers who wrote them.

Some of the letters were written on school district letterhead.

“I would say the general tone (of the letters) is that he was well known by many teachers, they considered him an excellent educator and role model for children,” Rossi said. “Some of them said they were disappointed with the verdict. A lot of them seemed to know this kid, but none of them mentioned him at all (in the letters). They expressed zero compassion for the student, but full-fledged support for the man who hurt this student.

“These are people entrusted to work with children and they show no compassion for this kid.”

In a published article, Rossi was even more critical of the teachers.

“They would say this never could have happened,” Rossi said. “This is why children don’t disclose sexual abuse, because they believe the people who can help them won’t believe them. I found it reprehensible that teachers would behave this way.

“To have so many teachers come out in favor of a man who admitted he did this, it was terrible to see. Who can a kid go to?”

The lack of cooperation from school personnel, along with the support letters for LoMaglio, did not impress Emily Bryant, a local columnist for the Democrat and Chronicle.

“Astonishingly the judge who sentenced (LoMaglio) received letters from district employees saying that LoMaglio was a good role model for children,” Bryant wrote. “Some wrote that they would trust him with their own kids. Not one of the letters included a mention of the victim.

“From an average person, a refusal to answer questions in a child sex abuse investigation would be awful. Writing a letter saying that a convicted sex offender was a ‘good role model’ for kids would be bizarre. From numerous school district employees these actions are downright scary.”

A Rochester school district spokesman said there may be little anyone can do about the teachers, because they are free to express their opinions about the case, and cannot be compelled to participate in a criminal investigation, according to Bryant.

That’s not good enough for Karen Bryant, a district resident who has young relatives attending Rochester schools.

“Teachers are mandatory reporters of abuse,” Bryant wrote to EAGnews. “What good is mandating teachers to report abuse when they aren’t required to cooperate with the investigation that would naturally follow the report?”

Bryant says the community has a right to know the identity of the teachers who wrote the letters.

“We have a right to know who these people are and why they felt compelled to support a child molester and refused to cooperate with the investigation,” Bryant said. “We have a right to know if it’s their stance that they will continue to support individuals who rape our children and say nothing.”

In today’s edition of Wrong House Asshole………….

Via Bearing Arms

Bearing Arms reader reported this defensive gun use that happened just five blocks away from him:

Police say Antione Garret, 34, and his girlfriend awoke to the sound of someone breaking into their home on Leybourn Avenue. When Garret heard the front window shatter, he ran downstairs and saw Randy Estrada, 21, climbing inside. Garret fired his handgun several times, until Estrada climbed back out the window and ran away.

A short time later, Estrada called 911 to report that he had been shot and was taken to a Toledo hospital for treatment. He is expected to survive his injuries.

“If someone’s breaking into your house and you fear for your safety, you have the right to defend yourself and your family. And in this case, that’s what we believe Mr. Garret has done,” said Sgt. Joe Heffernan with the Toledo Police Department.

Bob Owens, who runs Bearing Arms makes a great point in this post. the man defending his home will never be charged because he fired to stop the threat. Once the intruder fled, that threat was neutralized. 

 

300,000 Ukrainians Take To Streets Over President’s Anti-EU Policy; Police Retaliate With Tear Gas, Flash Grenades

Protesters, Police Clash In Ukraine Over President’s Pro-Russia Policy – Fox News

A protest by about 300,000 Ukrainians angered by their government’s decision to freeze integration with the West turned violent Sunday, when a group of demonstrators besieged the president’s office and police drove them back with truncheons, tear gas and flash grenades. Dozens of people were injured.

.

The mass rally in central Kiev defied a government ban on protests on Independence Square, in the biggest show of anger over President Viktor Yanukovych’s refusal to sign a political and economic agreement with the European Union.

The protesters also were infuriated by the violent dispersal of a small, opposition rally two nights before.

While opposition leaders called for a nationwide strike and prolonged peaceful street protests to demand that the government resign, several thousand people broke away and marched to Yanukovych’s nearby office.

A few hundred of them, wearing masks, threw rocks and other objects at police and attempted to break through the police lines with a front loader. After several hours of clashes, riot police used force to push them back.

Dozens of people with what appeared to be head injuries were taken away by ambulance. Several journalists, including some beaten by police, were injured in the clashes.

Opposition leaders denounced the clashes as a provocation aimed at discrediting the peaceful demonstration and charged that the people who incited the storming of the presidential office were government-hired thugs.

Several opposition leaders, including world boxing champion Vitali Klitschko, walked over to Yanukovych’s office to urge protesters to return to Independence Square. Order appeared to have been restored by Sunday night, with rows of riot police standing guard behind metal fences.

Some protesters then headed to Yanukovych’s residence outside Kiev, but their cars were stopped by police.

Speaking before the vast crowds on Independence Square from the roof of a bus, the opposition leaders demanded that Yanukovych and his government resign.

“Our plan is clear: It’s not a demonstration, it’s not a reaction. It’s a revolution,” said Yuriy Lutsenko, a former interior minister who is now an opposition leader.

Chants of “revolution” resounded across a sea of yellow and blue Ukrainian and EU flags on the square, where the government had prohibited rallies starting Sunday. Thousands of protesters remained late into the evening and some were preparing to spend the night on the square.

The demonstration was by far the largest since the protests began more than a week ago and it carried echoes of the 2004 Orange Revolution, when tens of thousands came to the square nightly for weeks and set up a tent camp along the main street leading to the square.

The opposition leaders urged Ukrainians from all over the country to join the protests in the capital.

“Our future is being decided here in Kiev,” Klitschko said.

Ukrainian lawmakers meet Monday for consultations and planned to hold a parliament session Tuesday. The opposition is hoping to muster enough votes to oust Prime Minister Mykola Azarov’s Cabinet after several lawmakers quit Yanukovych’s Party of Regions in protest.

The U.S. Embassy issued a joint statement from U.S. and EU ambassadors encouraging Ukrainians to resolve their differences peacefully and urging “all stakeholders in the political process to establish immediate dialogue to facilitate a mutually acceptable resolution to the current discord.”

Protests have been held daily in Kiev since Yanukovych backed away from an agreement that would have established free trade and deepened political cooperation between Ukraine and the EU. He justified the decision by saying that Ukraine couldn’t afford to break trade ties with Russia.

The EU agreement was to have been signed Friday and since then the protests have gained strength.

“We are furious,” said 62-year-old retired businessman Mykola Sapronov, who was among the protesters Sunday. “The leaders must resign. We want Europe and freedom.”

As the demonstrators approached Independence Square and swept away metal barriers from around a large Christmas tree set up in the center, all police left the square. About a dozen people then climbed the tree to hang EU and Ukrainian flags from its branches.

Several hundred demonstrators never made it to the square. Along the way they burst into the Kiev city administration building and occupied it, in defiance of police, who tried unsuccessfully to drive them away by using tear gas.

The EU agreement had been eagerly anticipated by Ukrainians who want their country of 45 million people to break out of Moscow’s orbit. Opinion surveys in recent months showed about 45 percent of Ukrainians supporting closer integration with the EU and a third or less favoring closer ties with Russia.

Moscow tried to block the deal with the EU by banning some Ukrainian imports and threatening more trade sanctions. A 2009 dispute between Kiev and Moscow on gas prices resulted in a three-week cutoff of gas to Ukraine.

Yanukovych was traveling to China for a state visit this week. Afterward, the president planned to visit Russia and reach agreement on normalizing trade relations, Azarov said Sunday.

For Yanukovych, memories of the Orange Revolution are still raw.

Those protests forced the annulment of a fraud-tainted presidential election in which he was shown to have won the most votes. A rerun of the election was ordered, and he lost to Western-leaning reformist Viktor Yushchenko.

Yanukovych was elected president five years later, narrowly defeating then-Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, the leading figure of the Orange Revolution.

Tymoshenko was sentenced to seven years imprisonment in 2011 for abuse of office, a case that the West has widely criticized as political revenge. The EU had set Tymoshenko’s release, or at least her freedom to go to Germany for treatment of a severe back problem, as a key criterion for signing the association pact with Ukraine.

The prospect of freeing his archenemy was deeply unattractive to Yanukovych, who comes up for re-election in early 2015.

Police State Update: Third Person Reports Being Anally Violated By Cops

Stop The Madness: Third Person Reports Being Anally Violated By Police – Daily Caller

A third New Mexico resident is claiming that she was physically abused by police and medical staff who exceeded their authority to search for drugs she never had.

.

The woman’s attorney came forward with her story just a few days after a local news channel reported similar stories involving New Mexico police forcing two suspects to undergo invasive surgery to prove they weren’t carrying drugs. Police used expired and nonexistent warrants to justify the improper and unethical searches, according to KOB-TV 4.

The unnamed woman is being represented by Laura Schaur Ives of the New Mexico chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union. Schaur told KOB-TV 4 that her client was stopped by police in El Paso, Texas. After a drug-sniffing dog indicated that she might have drugs, police strip-searched her and then allegedly assault her by sticking their fingers into her vagina.

When the on-site search failed to turn up any drugs, police took the woman to University Medical Center of El Paso. There, she was given an X-ray, cat scan and full body search. Medical personnel probed her anus and vagina, according to Schaur.

“They then did a cavity search and they probed her vagina and her anus, they described in the medical records as bi-manual – two-handed,” she said in a statement. “Again, they found nothing.”

Schaur claims that police did not have a warrant to conduct the search.

If this horror story sounds familiar, it’s because two other New Mexico residents were violate by drug-seeking police officers. Timothy Young and David Eckert were pulled over for traffic violations in separate incidents, and were searched on the authority of the same unlicensed drug-sniffing dog. They were then taken to Gila Regional Medical Center in Silver City, New Mexico, where doctors performed a full battery of invasive medical procedures.

While these incidents involved New Mexico police, the woman who Schaur represents was allegedly handled by Customs and Border Control – suggesting that abusive practices are not limited to a single malicious police department.

All three victims protested their treatment at the hands of police and medical staff and refused to be examined.

Not only were their protestations ignored, but in Eckert’s case, doctors even stuck him with the bill for his own forced colonoscopy.

Sorry, but two thugs being killed while committing a violent felony IS justice!

I am so damn tired of the bastardization of the word “justice”!

The families of the two masked armed robbers killed in Reading, PA by a concealed carrier are now complaining that they want justice.

Family members of the two masked men shot to death after allegedly robbing a store in Reading spoke out Tuesday.

“It’s not fair,” said Virginia Medina, mother of 24-year-old William Medina, who police said robbed Krick’s Korner store alongside 18-year-old Robert De Carr on Monday.

The two men were shot and killed by a private citizen while leaving the store, and family members want to see charges pressed.

“[William] had no right to lose his life over something that man could have called the police for,” said Medina. “He took the law into his own hands and walked away scot-free.”

“How about if people just start running around here, policing the city on their own? How much worse is it going to get?” said Peter Ratel, Medina’s cousin.

The family members said they are hurt by comments suggesting the alleged robbers were “thugs.

Let us see. They were armed, used their weapons to threaten and rob a store owner, then, they pulled those same guns on a man trying to do the right thing  and he killed them in self-defense.

It was just after 2:00 p.m. Monday when shots rang out outside Krick’s Korner Market on the 1600 block of North 9th Street.

Adams says cameras were rolling as the men, donning masks and armed with guns, entered the store and terrorized employees, pointing their weapons and making demands.

A concerned citizen witnessed the robbery happening from outside the store and waited there for the suspects.

The armed men took cash, cigarettes and lottery tickets before exiting the store. Outside they were confronted by the concerned citizen who told them not to move and that he was calling police.

Adams said a struggle ensued and the suspects took out their weapons. The citizen, however, was also armed and fired at the suspects.

The suspects were both shot in the chest and died at the scene.

Police took the armed citizen in for questioning, but after reviewing video of the incident and speaking with a number of witnesses, authorities released the man.

Adams said the shooter was very cooperative. The man had a license to carry, and since he was threatened at gunpoint, no charges are expected to be filed.

Sounds like they were thugs to me. Sorry, that their families lost loved ones, but they have no moral right to desire punishment for a man who simply defended himself. That is not “justice” that is INjustice!

 

Police Smell Meth, Raid Home, Kill 80-Year-Old Man, Find No Meth

Police Smell Meth, Raid Home, Kill 80-Year-Old Man, Find No Meth – Daily Caller

The widow of an 80-year-old man who was shot dead by police during a drug raid on their home is suing for $50 million.

.

On the night of June 27th, Los Angeles County deputies raided the home of Eugene Mallory and Tonya Pate. Authorities claim they had probable cause to search the premises because they could smell chemicals used to make methamphetamine while standing outside the house. Police suspected Mallory of being involved in an illegal meth ring.

Mallory was asleep in bed when police entered his home. Pate said her husband has bad eyesight, and couldn’t tell that the men entering the house were police officers without his glasses.

What happened next is disputed by police and Pate. The deputies claim that Mallory pointed a gun at them, requiring them to take defensive measures. They shot him six times, and he died.

“Age does not preclude somebody from being aggressive toward deputies,” said Steve Whitmore, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, in a statement to local news. “The lesson here is, and obviously forgive me for stating the obvious, but don’t pull a gun on a deputy.”

But Pate maintained that her husband did no such thing.

“He would never point a gun at officers,” she said. “He was taken from me for no reason.”

Pate is suing the sheriff’s office for $50 million. The coroner’s office is also named in the suit; the office released Mallory’s body to an out-of-state relative, and Pate claimed he was cremated before her own investigators could perform an autopsy.

Police found no meth, nor evidence of a meth operation, inside the house. They did find marijuana – in Pate’s son’s room.

The sheriff’s department insists that the marijuana vindicates the raid.

“There was a drug operation that was certainly going on in this house,” said Whitmore.

All in all, it was a bad week of press for Los Angeles cops. One L.A. police lieutenant was arrested for soliciting a prostitute, and another officer has been temporarily relieved of duty after firing his gun in an effort to scare some kids who were bothering him.

The L.A. County Sheriff’s Department did not respond to requests for comment.

A warning shot you say? OK here is your warning

I never commented on this story, but today I ran across it as Bearing Arms

Lakesha Thompson sports a particularly warped view of the entitlement mindset:

An elderly man shot and killed a would-be burglar inside his Oak Cliff home.

Police say the homeowner saw Deyfon Pipkins, 33, trying to climb into the window and fired his weapon at least once at the intruder.

The homeowner is legally protected by the Castle Doctrine, which allows a person to defend his or her home against an intruder.

“It means they don’t actually have to retreat once someone comes in their home,” Sergeant Calvin Johnson, Dallas Police Department, said. “You have the option of using deadly force if you believe your life is in danger.”

After police notified relatives of Pipkins’ death, some showed up at the house. They were upset, and questioned the homeowner’s actions.

“He could have used a warning,” Lakesha Thompson, Pipkins’ sister-in-law, said. “He could have let him know that he did have a gun on his property and he would use it in self-defense.”

Pipkins had a lengthy criminal record. He served time in prison and was convicted of theft, possession of a Controlled Substance and criminal trespassing.

I understand that the family of the bad guy would wish this would have never happened. I bet the homeowner does too. But, anyone breaking into another person’s home does not deserve a warning. They ought to realize they are risking their life by trying to victimize someone else. So, if anyone breaks into my home, they better understand that I am armed and WILL use whatever force necessary to defend my home and loved ones.

 

Honestly, who did not see this coming? School asks police officer not to pick his daughter up while in uniform

We can expect more of this because the absurdity of Leftism is absolutely limitless

Via Fox News:

A police officer who dropped off his daughter at her Phoenix elementary school was asked by the school’s principal not to wear his uniform to the school because other parents were concerned that he was carrying a gun, MyFoxPhoenix.com reported.

Scott Urkov is a police officer for the Coolidge Police Department. The department told him not to comment to media inquiries, but immediately after he received the no-uniform request, he posted on Facebook.

“Nothing like your kids school calling and asking if I could not come to pick up my daughter in uniform cause parents were concerned when their kids came home telling them there was a man at school with a gun, “ he posted. “Are you freaking kidding me?”

It has come to this, but the school, in true Leftist fashion, wants to make this into a teachable moment

Meanwhile, school officials’ initial reaction was to ask the officer not to wear his gun and uniform to school, they are now saying they want to turn this incident into “a teachable moment.”

Really? I doubt these Moonbat knuckle draggers can brush their teeth without written instructions. Teaching is not their thing, indoctrination and fear mongering are their strong suits, and job #1 is to demonize guns and anyone who has one, even the police apparently. 

 

Yes Virginia, guns do save lives

From Bearing Arms

When armed criminals band together, they expect to shock and intimidate their chosen victims into compliance.

In Bayou St. John last week, three armed robbers chose the wrong victims:

The NOPD says two people were walking to a parked car in the 3100 block of Ursulines Avenue around 9:00 p.m. Thursday when they were approached by three people.

Police say the gunmen asked both victims to get on the ground, but that didn’t happen.

“His first thought was to protect his female companion, which he did by pushing her to the ground to keep her out of harm’s way and then fired a couple of warning shots,” said attorney Michael Kennedy who represents one of the victims. He says his client declined to be interviewed.

Police say after the trio were shot at, they started running towards Bayou St. John dropping a clue that would link one of the suspects to the crime.

Early Friday night, NOPD officers were spotted canvassing the area where police arrested two suspects the night before.

Police say 18-year-old Aaron Smith and 17-year-old Hakeem Carter were taken into custody in the 1000 block of Hagan Street, not far from where shots were fired.

Now they both face two counts of attempted armed robbery.

American exercises God-given right to self-defense thugs who broke into Texas home hardest hit

Via The Blaze

A Texas teen is being praised by neighbors for protecting his grandmother’s home from a burglary attempt early Wednesday morning after he shot and killed one of two suspects.

The break-in occurred in Baytown just after 5:30 a.m. when the 18-year-old told police he heard someone coming into the home. He called 911, grabbed a shotgun and found the two men in the living room, according to KHOU-TV.

When the two suspects did not put their hands up as the teen ordered, he shot at both. KHOU reported that one of the suspects, later identified as 40-year-old Charles Allen Dixon, died on site, while the other was wounded and ran away.

 

Ex-Sanford Police Chief Was Fired For Refusing To Arrest Zimmerman Without Probable Cause (Videos)

Ex-Sanford Police Chief Was Pressured To Arrest Zimmerman; Fired For Refusing To Arrest Without Probable Cause – Gateway Pundit

An Ex-Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee tells CNN he was fired for not arresting Zimmerman. Bill Lee was pressured by city officials who didn’t care if Zimmerman was innocent, the city officials just wanted an arrest. Bill Lee told the officials you can’t arrest without probable cause, and was fired for upholding Zimmerman’s constitutional rights.

.

.
CNN reports the following:

The George Zimmerman investigation was hijacked “in a number of ways” by outside forces, said the former police chief of Sanford, Florida.

Bill Lee, who testified Monday in Zimmerman’s second-degree murder trial, told CNN’s George Howell in an exclusive interview that he felt pressure from city officials to arrest Zimmerman to placate the public rather than as a matter of justice.

“It was (relayed) to me that they just wanted an arrest. They didn’t care if it got dismissed later,” he said. “You don’t do that.”

When Sanford police arrived on the scene on February 26, 2012, after Zimmerman fatally shot unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, they conducted a “sound” investigation, and the evidence provided no probable cause to arrest Zimmerman at the scene, he said.

It had nothing to do with Florida’s controversial “Stand Your Ground” law, he said; from an investigative standpoint, it was purely a matter of self-defense.

Zimmerman told police he killed Martin after the teen attacked him. While the evidence at the time corroborated that claim, the ex-chief said, Lee’s lead investigator made a recommendation that Zimmerman be charged with manslaughter.

It was a matter of protocol, Lee said. Arresting Zimmerman based on the evidence at hand would have been a violation of Zimmerman’s Fourth Amendment rights, he said. Thus, the Sanford police presented a “capias request” to the state’s attorney, asking that the prosecutor determine whether it was a “justifiable homicide,” issue a warrant for arrest or present the case to a grand jury.

“The police department needed to do a job, and there was some influence – outside influence and inside influence – that forced a change in the course of the normal criminal justice process,” Lee said. “With all the influence and the protests and petitions for an arrest, you still have to uphold you oath.”

“That investigation was taken away from us. We weren’t able to complete it,” he said. [...]

Additional evidence towards rigging of the game in the video below. This is unbelievable as it displays a clear bias to influence a conviction. The Judge attempts to force Zimmerman into a response after telling him he has a right not to respond (also refuses to allow Zimmerman’s lawyers to represent and answer for Zimmerman). NationalReview reported on this testy exchange.

.

.
NationalReview reports the following:

A hostile exchange took place in the courtroom today where George Zimmerman is on trial for second degree murder as Judge Debra Nelson questioned the defendant about his plans to testify.

Nelson reminded Zimmerman that he has the “absolute right to remain silent” if he so desires and proceeded to ask him whether he was prepared to testify. Defense attorney Don West twice objected to the question, but was overruled by Nelson, who explained, “The court is entitled to inquire if Mr. Zimmerman’s determination [sic] as to whether or not he wants to testify.”

The judge then began asking Zimmerman how much time he requires to determine whether or not he would like to testify. West again objected to the question and asked for more time to speak with his client, prompting Judge Nelson to raise her voice and exclaim, “Your objection is overruled!”

The tension escalated as another of Zimmerman’s defense attorneys, Mark O’Mara, was overheard asking under his breath, “What is going on?”

Kathi Belich, a journalist following the trial for a local news channel, tweeted her surprise at the line of questioning, writing “I have never seen that in more than 30 years of court reporting.”

Naked Idiot Arrested In Police Parking Lot

OPD: Naked Man In Police Parking Lot Charged With Indecent Exposure – Ocala StarBanner

A naked man was arrested late Wednesday when an officer reportedly found him after walking around the parking lot of the Ocala Police Department.

.
……….

Marcus Aaron Taylor, 28, was held on a charge of indecent exposure in public.

A police officer had stopped Taylor at 10:55 p.m. in the department parking lot, 402 S. Pine Ave. Officer Luis Camacho also responded and wrote the official report.

When Camacho asked Taylor why he was not wearing any clothing, Taylor said, “Because I committed a crime.”

Taylor added that the crime was “lewdness” and said he wanted the officer to take him to jail.

There appeared to be a bandage on Taylor’s head and Camacho asked him why it was there. Taylor said it was for “my tumor” and “don’t worry about it, just take me to jail,” according to the report.

Camacho asked Taylor where he had left his clothing, but Taylor refused to say.

Taylor was arrested and taken to the Marion County Jail. He was scheduled to make his first appearance before a judge early Thursday via video link from the jail, but his paperwork was not completed, so the judge told Taylor he would see him on Friday.

There was no evidence of a bandage on Taylor’s head during the brief appearance, and no indication of an injury or recent medical procedure.

Taylor was placed on suicide watch at the jail.

Another reason you could not pay me to live in New York City

Stuck on Stoopit!

Blind and unable to do their job is what NYPD union officials say a new bill proposed by the city council would do to cops if it prevents them from using race, age, gender and more as identifying characteristics for law enforcement action, according to the Post.

The Post reported NYPD Captains Endowment Association President Roy Richter, who is the officer pictured in the “How effective is a police officer with a blindfold on?”-ad, saying these “are very important descriptive terms to let officers know who to look for.”

Introduction 800 of the Community Safety Act would prohibit “bias-based profiling.” Bias-based profiling in the bill is defined as “a member of the force of the police department or other law enforcement officer that relies on actual or perceived race, [ethnicity, religion or] national origin, color, creed, age, alienage or citizenship status, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or housing status as the determinative factor in initiating law enforcement action against an individual, rather than an individual’s behavior or other information or circumstances that links a person or persons [of a particular race, ethnicity, religion national origin] to suspected unlawful activity.” (emphasis added)

Because profiling is bad or something! More idiocy from the Left

 

Remember the 14-year-old boy arrested for wearing an NRA T-shirt to school?

He now faces a year in jail, apparently someone thinks he should be made an example of

Now it looks like Jared could face up to a year in jail.

Guns Save Lives reported:

According to a report by WTRF the prosecuting attorney is moving forward with that charge and a judge is allowing the case to move forward. Fourteen year old Jared Marcum could face up to a $500 fine and up to a year in jail (we’ll seriously hope that isn’t a real possibility) if found guilty.

According to the report, the arresting officer alleges that when Jared refused to stopped talking he hindered the officers ability to do his job and that is where the obstruction arrest came from. I’m guessing a 14 year old kid who felt intimidated was trying to explain himself, but let’s throw him in jail for good measure.

It seems that maybe the negative publicity brought on by the idiotic actions of the school and the police has someone trying to further punish the kid.

Suspended and arrested after refusing to change his NRA shirt. Today, 14-year-old Jared Marcum appeared before a judge and was officially charged with obstructing an officer.
 
A $500 fine and up to a year in jail, that’s the penalty that Jared could face, now that a judge has allowed the prosecution to move forward with it’s obstructing an officer charge against him.
 
“Me, I’m more of a fighter and so is Jared and eventually we’re going to get through this,” Jared’s father Allen Lardieri said.  “I don’t think it should have ever gotten this far.”
 
The Logan County Police Department initially claimed that the at-the-time 8th grade Logan Middle School student was arrested for disturbing the education process, obstructing an officer and Lardieri says that officers even went as far as threatening to charge Jared with making terroristic threats.
 
“In my view of the facts, Jared didn’t do anything wrong,” Ben White, Jared’s attorney said.  “I think officer Adkins could have done something differently.”
 
Prosecuting attorney Michael White refused to respond to any questions, as did Logan Police.
 
We obtained official court documents from both sides of this case.  On one hand, the arresting officer from the Logan City Police Department, James Adkins, claims that when Jared refused to stop talking, that hindered his ability to do his job, hence, the obstruction charge.  On the other side, Ben White points out that nowhere in the arresting officer’s petition, does it mention Jared ever making any threats or acting in a violent manner. 
 
“Every aspect of this is just totally wrong,” Lardieri said.  “He has no background of anything criminal, up until now and it just seems like nobody wants to admit they’re wrong.”
 
Ben White says he will continue working to have the charges against Jared dismissed.  If that doesn’t happen in the coming weeks, Jared will be back in court on July 11th.
This stinks of persecution to me.

Ammo shortage easing up?

John Carey reports that he is finding 9 mm easier to find, I can say the same about .40 so, those are good signs.

 Over the past two weeks I’ve noticed that handgun ammo shelves at my favorite sporting goods stores are beginning to fill up again with popular calibers.  It appears the great guns and ammo crisis of 2013 may actually be coming to an end; at least until the next panic buying kicks in

The key to making this last is to pace yourself when purchasing ammo.  If everyone buys a little at a time to fill their stockpile we all win.

Amen!
