HOUSTON - A 3-year-old boy was taken to the hospital after his parents used a saw and grinder to remove handcuffs from his legs, police say.

On Aug. 19, Steven McGaha, the father of the boy, found his son had put handcuffs on his legs and lost the key, according to court documents.

McGaha called Savanna Coats, the boy’s mother, to come back to the home on Hopper Road to help look for the key, police said.

The parents looked for the key for five hours. They noticed his legs were losing circulation, so they decided they should cut off the cuffs, according to court documents.

“We didn’t want to get the cops involved, because we knew what would happen,” McGaha said.

McGaha held the boy down while Coats tried to use a reciprocating saw, knife sharpener and, ultimately, was successful when she used a grinder, police said.

According to court documents, it took another five hours to get the cuffs off. During the many attempts to cut them off, the boy was burned and cut by the grinder as it dug into his skin.

Police said the parents did not immediately take the child to get medical assistance until four days later on Aug. 23, when the child had contracted infections on both legs.

“I know we should have taken him on the first day, but we didn’t,” McGaha said.

Police said that the handcuffs had a universal key, and if the parents would have contacted first responders, the cuff could have been removed immediately.

According to Dr. M. Donaruma, a child abuse pediatrician at Texas Children’s Hospital, the child’s scarring and injuries will be permanent and will cause disfigurement and complications as he grows taller.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Investigators learned that it was the mother who cuffed the boy and misplaced the key. Coats was jailed and charged with serious bodily injury to a child.

Tristan Retke is a Junior at Eastern Tennessee State. He was arrested on Tuesday for handing out food.

Mr. Retke, who is white, was at a Black Lives Matter rally when this happened. He was wearing a gorilla mask and carrying a bunch of bananas, which he was handing out. He was arrested for Civil Rights Intimidation by the Johnson City PD.

I guess in Johnson City being politically incorrect is actually a crime.

I hope he gets a good lawyer and sues the dogshit out of the city.


Several men are in the locker room of a golf club. A cellular phone on a bench rings and a man engages the hands-free speaker function and begins to talk.

Everyone else in the room stops to listen.

MAN: "Hello"

WOMAN: "Hi Honey, it's me. Are you at the club?"

MAN: "Yes."

WOMAN: "I'm at the shops now and found this beautiful leather coat. It's only $2,000; is it OK if I buy it?"

MAN: "Sure, go ahead if you like it that much."

WOMAN:"I also stopped by the Lexus dealership and saw the new models. I saw one I really liked."

MAN: "How much?"

WOMAN: "$90,000."

MAN: "OK, but for that price I want it with all the options."

WOMAN: "Great! Oh, and one more thing... I was just talking to Janie and found out that the house I wanted last year is back on the market. They're asking $980,000 for it."

MAN: "Well, then go ahead and make an offer of $900,000. They'll probably take it. If not, we can go the extra eighty-thousand if it's what you really want."

WOMAN: "OK. I'll see you later! I love you so much!"

MAN: "Bye! I love you, too."

The man hangs up. The other men in the locker room are staring at him in astonishment, mouths wide open. He turns and asks, "Anyone know whose phone this is?"

Hillary is in for a new walloping with the 'Clinton, Inc.' movie that digs deep into her psychology – and Bill's

By David Martosko | Daily Mail | September 19, 2016

With the right lighting a twenty-something Virginia Clinton – Bill's mom – was a dead ringer for Monica Lewinsky.

That realization alone, and all its Freudian implications, is enough to recommend the movie ‘Clinton, Inc,’ a film adaptation of the 2014 book that will hit theaters on September 30.

It turns out the future president's sexually undiscriminating but lovable and charming mother – and the rock-steady but ambitious and intimidating grandmother who helped raised him – formed maternal bookends that he would later reanimate with Lewinsky and Hillary Rodham.

Hillary was the staid, grandmotherly figure from the beginning, the film suggests, the one who he could count on for comfort and security.

Bill's endless string of one-night stands, including one woman he allegedly raped, were a reprise of the trysting situations in which he so often saw his mother, largely with future stepdad Roger, as he worked his way through boyhood.

And as he progressed into manhood, we learn, Bill needed both the stability of his wife and the wildness of other women.

But far from condemning him, 'Clinton, Inc.' casts the boy from Hope, Arkansas in the same light as Alexander Hamilton, this year's unlikeliest political celebrity.

They were both bastards from social and geographical backwaters – Hamilton was born in Charlestown on the nowhere Caribbean island of Nevis – and they both transcended their origins in world-shaping ways.

The hits keep coming in this feature-length film from producer Mark Sain, who gave the first sneak-peek over the weekend.

Sain's '2016: Obama's America' became the second-highest grossing political documentary of all time. 'Clinton, Inc.' will see a limited release on 20 metro Chicago cinema screens before hitting 1,000 screens nationwide in mid-October, just in time to give voters a new version of plentiful old history to chew on.

With help from Johns Hopkins University professor John Gartner, the film answers the question that logically follows on the unsuitably named Virginia's bed-hopping, much of which happened with doctors in a hospital where she worked.

Gartner believes Bill may have called the wrong guy 'Dad' for his whole life.

'Because of Bill Clinton's own mother's promiscuity, it was likely that someone else was his biological father – the biological father Bill never revealed,' Sain told in an interview.

And that, he said, presents a bizarre 'parallel between how he and Obama grew up.'

'Neither of them knew his biological father,' Sain explained. 'And they both were raised by these role models that they thought would teach them who they should be.'

Gartner was not the first to name Bill's real dad as physician George Wright, but he does it on camera in a straight-ahead fashion that makes a compelling case – including an anecdote about how the doctor changed where he took his annual vacations so he could be near Bill as he grew.

The man usually acknowledged as Clinton's dad, William Jefferson Blythe Jr., was still on active duty in the U.S. Army until 8 months before his birth.

At its heart, 'Clinton, Inc.' is a psychological study of the Clintons and what makes them tick, a welcome palate-cleanser from the politically driven and often reckless storytelling that was bound to crop up in the weeks before November's presidential election.

Loosely based on the book by Daniel Halper, who now leads the New York Post's Washington, D.C. bureau and ably narrates much of the movie, the new adaptation leans heavily on Hillary, the Democratic nominee for president.

Her White House run, filmgoers learn, is on the one hand an attempt to rehabilitate her family dynasty's image, and on the other a sort of payback for putting up with her lascivious husband for decade after decade.

What's most interesting about it isn't what's most current. The film does a cursory roundup of the latest scandals in Clintonworld, including the Benghazi terror attacks, pay-to-play accusations leveled against the Clinton Foundation and her classified email scandal.

'It's truth whack-a-mole with Hillary Clinton,' political editor Guy Benson quips in the movie.

The filmmakers also rely on the voice of Dick Morris, a one-time Clinton insider whom the first couple tossed overboard after it was revealed that he allowed a toe-sucking prostitute to listen in on his conversations with the President of the United States.

Morris calls the payoffs during Hillary's State Department tenure – speaking fees for Bill and millions in buy-ins for the foundation – 'thinly disguised bribes.'

Morris was a close-up observer from the beginning, helping Clinton win his way into the Arkansas governor's mansion.

As the Lewinsky scandal broke two decades later, he recalls, 'I urged Clinton not to lie to people. I said they'll forgive the adultery but not the perjury.'

'It was Hillary that said, "You gotta deny it, you gotta stand firm, you gotta be intransigent." And her advice always is to stonewall, to stand firm, not to yield an inch.'

Her storied appearance on NBC's 'Today' show, in which she blamed the brewing tempest on a 'vast right-wing conspiracy,' the film explains, came the following day

'Lying,' Morris concludes, 'is her substitute for charisma.'

Hillary's most powerful role in the movie is that of Bill's immoral savior, rescuing him from himself over and over and enabling him to lie and cheat again and again.

Her own mother Dorothy stoically endured an abusive husband's rantings and kept her own family together anyway, and Hillary followed her lead by looking the other way.

Hillary's pre-ordained carpet-bagged coronation as a New York senator after they left the White House, singularly orchestrated by Bill, was her first cashed-in chit.

She was planning her Senate run, in fact, while the U.S. Senate was deliberating on an impeachment vote that teetered on the edge of toppling Bill's presidency.

A return to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue may be her final claim check for playing her role to a tee.

'To understand Bill and Hillary, don't think of a marriage,' Morris advises. 'Think of a racketeering organization.'

The Clinton duo began as a hippie love story, to be sure, but morphed into a more savage lust for power in the film's telling.

By the time she became America's first lady, Hillary had parlayed her feminist chic into control over the future of the nation's healthcare system, which she botched by arrogantly trying to steamroll Senate Republicans.

But Bill was so in debt to her that he installed her in the West Wing of the White House and dared not infringe on her territory.

Because Bill sensed that he needed to pull the Democratic Party back from the brink of full-scale liberalism, he put his weight behind the North American Free Trade Agreement, a political fossil that's in this year's vernacular as a bone that Republican nominee Donald Trump won't let go of.

In 'Clinton, Inc.'s' telling, NAFTA was an easy sell to then-House speaker Newt Gingrich because its purpose was to win cheap labor for big business.

But Bill Clinton had an ulterior motive in capturing a new source of campaign fundraising from blue-chip companies that suddenly owed him.

Many of the same companies, and their Washington lobbyists, backed Hillary when she ran for Senate.

The filmmakers agree with Trump that NAFTA led to wholesale job losses, and suggest the president didn't care because America's working class would never cross the aisle and support an aging, feckless Senator Bob Dole in 1996.

He was right, of course. And besides, now he had the backing of top Republicans from the NAFTA battle. The nation's working class emerged as the losers while the Clinton dynasty 'triangulated' itself and reaped the benefits.

'The Clintons are about power and about money. They're ruthless,' National Review editor Rich Lowry concludes.

Clinton, Inc., the family business, has three iterations, Sain said.

'The first version was during their Arkansas years, the ideal. Then she becomes the U.S. senator and gets more power-hungry. That's version two.'

'Version three is her attempt now to become president.'

Chelsea Clinton, the pair's adult daughter, is the heir to the throne even before Hillary wears a crown.

Power and prominence, we're reminded, are generational. As she campaigns for her mother, Chelsea is hyper-aware that she stands to inherit a family business whose goal is to create wealth and political power.

All the while, Bill and Hillary strut the trappings of a marriage based on a weird mashup of aw-shucks charm and conniving dishonesty.

Voters, of course, will be the film's consumers. They'll come away exposed to the idea that aging baby boomers are looking to install a female president as the incarnation of social upheaval they stoked generations ago.

But feminists in particular have a problem: Hillary Clinton reached the base-camp beneath her ultimate summit because of who she married. Bill made her first lady and furnished her with a Senate seat.

Why? Because he always needed her, he always cared about her, and she has always lacked the raw political talent to earn it on her own.

'They're co-dependent,' Sain told, while cautioning that 'it's more complex than that.'

'They do very much love each other, but their own personal ambitions drive things as well.'

Investors sank $1.5 million into making 'Clinton, Inc.,' which the MPAA has given a PG-13 rating. Lewinsky's blue dress makes a cameo, and there's ample talk about Bill's affairs – although no appearance from alleged rape victim Juanita Broaddrick.

Sain insisted that he didn't set out to put a divisive hit-piece on the big screen.

'When I made the movie it wasn't with the intent of trying to impact the election,' he said.

'We really tried to make it so that it would appeal to a wide audience.'

'Great movies are great character stories,' he explained. 'And this is a great character story.'


By Bob Walsh

Personal tragedies are nasty for those involved. I get that. That being said it does not give the sufferer license to impose his will on the rest of the country, or at least should not.

A case in point is the Brady Bill. Jim Brady worked for President Regan and was badly injured in an assassination attempt on Regan. He was left with significant brain damage. His wife, using him as a poster boy, pushed hard and with significant success to limit the rights of honest, law-abiding gun owners based on their personal tragedy.

Now we move to Gavin Newsom. Newsom was formerly the mayor of the People’s Republic of San Francisco. I almost wrote “ultra-liberal mayor” but that would be a redundancy in modern S.F. He is now the Lt. Governor of the formerly great state of California and, unless something truly bizarre happens, will be our governor in two years.

Gavin Newsom hates guns. He hates people who like guns. He hates people who own guns. I always just assumed it was because he was, by nature, a liberal asshole. I was wrong and now I know why, thanks to today’s S. F. Chronicle.

Arthur Menzies was Gavin Newsom’s grandfather. He was a WW II veteran and a survivor of the Bataan Death March. That experience somewhat unhinged him. (The death rate of American prisoners held by the Japanese during WW II was about 43%. I can’t imagine how nasty that was.)

At one time Menzies stood his daughter (Newsom’s mother) and her twin sister up against the fireplace and announced he was going to blow their brains out. He didn’t do it, but that doesn’t make it nice. Finally, one evening at the dinner table, in front of the family (including young Gavin) Menzies blew his brains out. That has left Newsom with a dislike for guns. A dislike he thinks should be enforced on the rest of society.

Newsome is the principle pimp for Proposition 63, which bans possession of ammunition magazines capable of holding more than ten rounds of ammo, including those you might have purchased legally and been in legal possession of for years, and greatly restricts the ability of honest, law-abiding citizens to purchase ammunition. This proposal, if it is passed into law and survives legal challenges certain to come, would make mail order purchases of ammo illegal and would drive many small dealers out of business with severe and expensive regulations. This would, among other things, require purchasers to have a license to buy ammo.

My own guess, for what that is worth, is that the ammunition magazine ban is probably unconstitutional as it is effectively a taking of property without compensation. Other states do require a special license to buy ammo so that might fly. Regulating business they don’t like out of business is a specialty in California so that might be acceptable to the courts.

In any event there it is. Gavin Newsom’s grandfather went off the rails so you can’t be trusted to own ammunition.


Sgt. David Robison drives Mark Ross 100 miles to reach his grieving family

By Sarah Grochowski | New York Daily News | September 27, 2016

A cop in Ohio drove a grieving man 100 miles to reach his family — and the act of kindness is attracting national attention.

Mark Ross was in a speeding vehicle, traveling Sunday to visit his heartbroken mother following the death of his 15-year-old sister Eliza, when the car was pulled over.

With the car being towed, Ross started to cry.

“I knew I was going to jail due to a petty warrant,” Ross wrote on Facebook.

Officers in Michigan — where Ross’s outstanding misdemeanor warrant was issued — refused to pick the man up because of the distance, he wrote.

When an officer, identified as Ohio State Highway Patrol Sgt. David Robison, learned of Ross’s situation, he decided to drive Ross to visit his family.

"I broke down crying, and he saw the sincerity in my cry,” Ross wrote in the viral post, which features a selfie of Ross and Robison. “He reaches over and began praying over me and my family,” he described in the viral post.

Ross concluded his post with an admittance of his own struggle to embrace police enforcement. “Everybody knows how much I dislike Cops but I am truly Greatful for this Guy.”

But Sunday’s events and the kindness of Sgt. Robison caused Ross to admit, “He gave me hope.”

The original Facebook post has now been shared about 100,000 times.

EDITOR’S NOTE. I would think that Sgt. Robison obtained permission from higher-ups in the Ohio State Police to give Ross a lift to Detroit. The Ohio State Police and Robison are to be commended for this heartfelt act of kindness. On the other hand, if Robison took Ross to Detroit without receiving permission, he should be suspended and demoted, if not fired.

BLM, please note that Ross is black and Robison is a white cop!

A pizza shop break-in turned into a chase Wednesday in northeast Houston.

According to investigators, four people in a stolen van smashed into a Little Caesars in the 6200 block of Lyons.

The burglars stole money, police said. Officers were able to find the van because of a tracking device in the cash.

Police said the driver led them on a chase, reaching speeds of up to 90 miles per hour.

It ended at Homestead near Tidwell, where the accused thieves ran away.

Three people were arrested and one person is still on the run, police said.

SAN DIEGO -- Authorities say a federal agent accidentally shot a deputy’s leg at the sheriff’s station in Lemon Grove while unloading a handgun that was seized by a joint task force Monday.

The deputy’s injury was not considered life-threatening, sheriff’s spokeswoman Jan Caldwell said.

The names of the deputy and the federal agent were not released.

The agent and other members of the unnamed task force recovered the .22 handgun while serving a search warrant in East County, Caldwell said.

The task force members returned to the sheriff’s station on Main Street to secure evidence about 5:30 p.m. While unloading the handgun, the agent accidentally discharged the gun, striking the deputy in the lower leg, Caldwell said.

The deputy was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive.

Authorities did not say whether the agent was placed on leave.

Sheriff’s detectives are investigating the shooting.

EDITOR’S NOTE: In the name of transparency, I demand that the authorities immediately release the names of the federal agent and deputy, as well as all body camera and sheriff’s station surveillance camera videos of the shooting!

Phoenix chief of police Joseph Yahner announced Thursday that three officers have chosen to resign after a teenager said the cops forced him to eat all the marijuana in his car, ABC News reports.

The 19-year-old, whose name has not been released, was pulled over during a traffic stop in the middle of the night on September 13. When the police spotted around a gram of weed in his car, the teen claims they told him to eat it or else face jail time. He swallowed the marijuana and reportedly felt sick after.

"Their actions are appalling and unacceptable," Yahner said. "This conduct is against everything that we stand for."

The officers were identified as Richard G. Pina, Jason E. McFadden, and Michael J. Carnicle. Yahner said that two of the cops are also being investigated to see if their actions were criminal. A fourth Phoenix police officer was demoted to sergeant for knowing about the incident and not reporting it.

"I was going to fire them," Yahner continued. "They chose to resign."

EDITOR’S NOTE: Aw come on Chief, they were only trying to make sure he ate his veggies.

Ah hah! Hillary has conveniently erased Bill's State of the Union speech from her mind when she condemns Trump on immigration.


A brief but intense manhunt led to the arrest hours later of renter Julio Salcedo, 34, across the Hudson River in Cliffside Park, N.J.

By Ginger Adams Otis, Laura Dimon, Thomas Tracy and Graham Rayman

New York Daily News | September 27, 2016

An FDNY battalion chief was killed by flying debris when a Bronx explosion tore the roof off a drug house early Tuesday, injuring another 20 people, authorities said.

Chief Michael Fahy, a 17-year fire veteran who followed his father into the department, was struck in the head and mortally injured as he stood outside the two-story home about 7 a.m.

“We had a tragedy today,” Mayor de Blasio said in announcing the death. “A tragedy has befallen a family, a fire department and our entire city.”

The blast in the Kingsbridge section came about an hour after a passerby called 911 to report an odor of gas around the home at W. 234th St. and Irwin Ave., authorities said.

“I felt something so strong, like a boom!” said local resident Porfiro Paulino, 64, who opened his window to see smoke pouring into the sky.

The rental property, an attached brick residence, was already under investigation as a marijuana grow house before the explosion, said Police Commissioner James O’Neill.

The blast scattered pot plants along the block outside the home, and cops found fertilizer in the ruins.

A brief but intense manhunt led to the arrest hours later of renter Julio Salcedo, 34, across the Hudson River in Cliffside Park, N.J., law enforcement sources said.

Salcedo paid rent at the 234th St. address, and cops were questioning him about the blast, the sources said. He had a prior arrest on a domestic violence charge.

“If you want to get our attention, blow up your marijuana grow house,” said the source. “You get the full attention of the NYPD. Doesn’t matter if you go to Indiana or Bali, we’re going to find you.”

A neighbor said the current renters, unlike past years when Manhattan College students lived in the corner residence, were low-key and drove high-end cars — Mercedes-Benz and BMWs.

“This definitely wasn’t college students,” said Mike Garcia, 28, an electrician. “We didn't hear any commotion or see any people. We thought it was shady.”

It was unclear if the pot production contributed to the blast, and an investigation by the NYPD arson and explosion squad was underway.

“It’s a crime scene, and it will be for a few days to come,” said FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro.

O’Neill said cops were in the initial stages of an investigation on the block after a tip that there was “a possible grow house” raising marijuana plants.

The police source said the weed was grown on the second floor, with each plant in a large plastic pot insulated with styrofoam panels.

Nine firefighters, six police officers, three Consolidated Edison workers and two civilians were injured by the blast that threw pieces of the roof into the street as smoke billowing skyward.

Fahy, whose dad Thomas was a decorated FDNY battalion chief, was struck in the head and “various other parts of the body,” said Nigro. He was the father of two boys — Michael, 11, and Cormac, 6 — and a daughter Anna Elisabeth, 8.

“One of our rising stars,” Nigro said of Fahy. “He was on the rise, he was a star, he was a brave man. ... it’s a loss, a terrible loss, not just for the Fahy family but the fire department family.”

Fahy was pronounced dead at NewYork-Presbyterian/Allen Hospital, officials said.

His parents and his widow, who rushed separately to the hospital, later returned to his Yonkers home on a street lined Tuesday with police and fire vehicles.

A priest accompanied the parents as they walked, their heads down, into the house. Neighbor Jackie Sutton choked back tears after hearing the news.

“There’s nothing but kind words to be said about this man and his family,” she said. “He was just a very wonderful neighbor. He was a pleasant, pleasant man ... a model in every way.”

None of the other injuries were believed to be life-threatening. The death was the FDNY’s first in the line of duty in more than two years.

“When it exploded, 3 blocks away me and my son were in my apartment and the entire building shook,” Instagram user advocateofwordzw wrote.

Onesimo Guerrero, the owner of the residence, knew little about the blast or the current renters.

“It was a very bad accident,” he told the Daily News. “I didn’t know the people living there. It was a starter house.”

Asked about the drug lab, Guerrero replied, “Nobody told me anything about that.”

More than 100 firefighters eventually responded to the blast.

The last FDNY line of duty death came in July 2014, when Lt. Gordon Matthew Ambelas died while fighting a fire in a Brooklyn high rise.

A three-year old girl was just murdered in the crime-ridden and gang-infested cesspool that is Stockton. She was in the back seat of a car being driven down the street in a not so wonderful part of town when some person or persons started throwing lead. The cops don’t believe the parents, who were in the car, were the intended targets and the little girl certainly wasn’t. She is however just as dead as if she was.

The neighbors are all horrified and outraged. They even provided the cops with a vague, general description of the car they believe the shots came from. At least one parked car and at least one home was also shot up a bit in the process.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Such shootings are quite common in black neighborhoods of cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, Baltimore, Houston, etc., but since they don't involve cops shooting blacks, Black Lives Matter shows no concern.

WHY BACKPAGE.COM ESCORT ADS CONTINUE … IN SPITE OF LAW ENFORCEMENT COMPLAINTS and other websites that host ads by pimps for the services of their girls, remain out of reach by the police, protected by federal law and the First Amendment

By Brian Rokos | The Press-Enterprise | September 25, 2016

Five years after the National Association of Attorneys General urged classified advertisement website to remove its “escort” listings, law enforcement officials appear no closer to realizing their goal of eliminating what they consider thinly disguised solicitations for prostitution.

Since the letter signed by all 50 attorneys general was sent to Backpage, there have been some successes in prosecuting the pimps that place the ads, which dance around the edges of the law by withholding most mentions of price for “candy,” “massages,” and “service.”

Just last week, the San Bernardino County Human Trafficking Task Force arrested Marquell Deante “Kell the King” Stewart, who investigators said forced juvenile girls to work for him and advertised their availability on Backpage. In August, detectives said they broke up a ring trafficking enslaved Chinese nationals that operated in nine counties, including San Bernardino and Riverside, and advertised on Backpage.

But the big prizes, and other websites that host the ads, remain out of reach, protected by federal law and the First Amendment.

“They are a tool for human traffickers,” San Bernardino County District Attorney Mike Ramos said. “We have seen the ongoing victimization of those being trafficked for sex in San Bernardino County and across the country.”

Liz McDougall, Backpage’s general counsel, disagrees. She says the company is on firm legal ground and works hard to report abuses of the website.

Still, law enforcement officials are keeping their noses to the keyboard. On Sept. 28, Ramos, president of the National District Attorneys Association, will be one of the opening speakers at an international human trafficking summit in Honolulu.

Ramos said he plans to discuss successes his office has had fighting human trafficking — suppression, victims’ rights, Stop the John and intervention — and the next steps that should be taken with legislation.

“To me that is really just a crime that is so easy to access for both the john and the traffickers,” Ramos said.

Protected speech

Any legislative action would likely involve Congress attempting to amend the Communications Decency Act, an effort that would be sure to touch off a constitutional fight, said Erwin Chemerinsky, dean of the UC Irvine School of Law.

A court ruling in March strengthened Backpage’s legal position.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit upheld the dismissal of a lawsuit against Backpage brought by three women who had appeared in escort ads posted by their pimps. The judges ruled that Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act prohibits treating an online service provider such as Backpage “as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider.”

Chemerinsky said the ruling that puts the onus on the advertiser to comply with anti-prostitution laws means “it’s going to be very difficult to stop things like Backpage from being able to have the ads.”

With the First Amendment protecting commercial speech, Chemerinsky said, law enforcement’s best alternative would be for police to target individual pimps, one lurid listing at a time.

“There’s no doubt what it is for,” he said, while adding, “Just because some (ads) are illegal doesn’t mean they all are.”

Backpage must answer

Police department vice squads scour Backpage ads, looking for cases to pursue. They’ll look for photographs that appear to depict minors and contact the advertiser to set up an undercover sting. They go after the pimps. Police now largely consider the prostitutes to be victims and offer them services and the opportunity to redirect their lives.

Backpage has said it scans for 25,000 terms and code words linked to prostitution, sex trafficking and child exploitation, and it reports about 400 suspicious ads every month to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

“I firmly believe what we are doing is part of the solution and in the best interest for the victims,” McDougall said.

Backpage will have to prove that point after the U.S. Supreme Court this month refused to block a congressional subpoena seeking documents on how Backpage screens ads for human trafficking. The Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations had sought the documents as part of its investigation into human trafficking over the internet.

McDougall, meanwhile, drew a distinction between the criticism from elected officials such as district attorneys and attorneys general, and what she said is support from front-line police who combat human trafficking.

“This has nothing to do with politics, and everything to do with victims,” said Ramos, who has announced plans to run for state Attorney General in 2018.

San Bernardino police vice Detective Kim Hernandez praised Backpage, to a point.

She said Backpage is responsive to requests for records on those who purchase escort ads

“In that way that’s positive,” Hernandez said. “But I think that they could do better as an organization to combat human trafficking if they didn’t allow the escort ads at all.”

Hernandez said the ads are deceptive, sometimes showing photographs of an adult when the person advertised is a minor. And sometimes a minor is shown.

“It’s shocking because they (customers) can see how young they are in the photographs,” she said.

Asked if she is hopeful about her mission, Hernandez said: “My biggest sense of hopefulness is that people are becoming more educated about human trafficking. My hopefulness comes from increasing sentencing requirements.”

Houston lawyer Nathan Desal, wearing a Nazi uniform complete with swastikas and using a tommy gun, wounds nine before being perforated by the cops

BarkGrowlBite | September 27, 2016

Nathan Desal, a Houston lawyer, had some serious issues with other members of his law firm. About 6:30 Monday morning, Nate began to take his frustrations out on his neighborhood which borders on the urb of West University Place. Using a Tommy gun with a straight magazine – as opposed to a 50-round drum magazine – and wearing a WW2 Nazi uniform complete with swastikas, Nate opened fire, shooting at everything in sight on a strip shopping center parking lot and at cars passing by on the streets.

At one point a neighbor looking out of her apartment window, observed Nate standing by his Porsche Boxster and calmly reloading his gun.

An army of cops from Houston, West University Place and Bellaire descended on the scene. Nate engaged them in a gun battle. The cops won, so perforating him that he was permanently disbarred.

Nate wounded nine people, one critically and another seriously. Several other people narrowly escaped being wounded or killed when the cars they were driving were hit by Nate’s random gunfire.

When it was all over the FBI and the ATF showed up. A search of the Boxster turned up more weapons and a search of Nate’s nearby condo turned up more Nazi regalia and memorabilia.

Ach du lieber! Der F├╝hrer would have been proud. And because the late Nate used their favorite gun - the Thompson sub machinegun – so would Bonnie and Clyde.

Jerry Brown just signed a bill into law in the formerly great state of California that relieves a person of both civil and criminal liability for smashing car windows...under certain circumstances.

The law, sponsored by the SPCA, permits a person to break into a car to rescue a small furry animal that appears to be in distress due to heat due to being locked in a car. The vandal must have previously contacted the authorities, reasonably determined that the animal in question can not wait for the authorities to arrive and must hang around for the ultimate arrival of the authorities.

Strangely this law does not apply to the rescue of humans. I admit to also being surprised that this occurs sufficiently often that a whole new law is required to deal with it.


If you are ever asked to be interviewed by the police in reference to a crime they suspect you might have committed, shut your mouth!

By Harry Dunne

A lot of convictions are brought about because a police investigator didn't like the way a suspect looked, talked, fidgeted or argued during an interrogation. Don't fall for the term interview or just talk to us so we can clear you. It's all an interrogation. You may be labeled as refused to cooperate but that's all. The 5th Amendment gives you the right not to incriminate yourself.

When an investigator goes to the grand jury or trial, these key phrases like these may eventually come out:

Based on my many years of experience...

The suspect was uncooperative.

He was very nervous during our interview.

He showed signs of deception.

His reaction and or demeanor when told about the crime was not typical because of a lack of emotion.

He seemed detached from the conversation.

He fit the general description of the actor.

He owns a weapon similar to the one used in the crime.

He has no alibi.

Based on some or all the above, innocent people have been convicted of a crime.
It's all Junk Science. Like I have said all along, if you are ever asked to be interviewed by the police in reference to a crime they suspect you might have committed, shut your mouth!

The new thing is voice analysis. So if you speak, some junk science analyst will testify about the inflection in your voice showing stress on a meter. There is no known base line to compare it to. Just like a polygraph, the operator determines who is lying.

Police Investigators are evaluated on productivity. This includes arrests and cases cleared. If an investigator targets you as a suspect chances are he may develop tunnel vision on you. Other suspects and evidence will sometimes be ignored because of his gut feeling backed by many years of experience. Get It?

Three Walmart workers in Georgia refused to bake a police officer a cake for his retirement party because they said it was racist.

“I was so shocked,” the police officer’s daughter, who asked that her name not be divulged, said to Todd Starnes. “I didn’t know what to do or say or anything. I was trying not to lose my temper or make a scene.”

The police officer’s daughter went to the McDonough-area Walmart on Sept. 22 to order a flag design on a cake for her father’s retirement party from the police force after 25 years of service.

When she showed bakers a picture of the police officer’s flag design that she wanted on the cake, one of the bakers said that the design was racist and that none of the bakers felt comfortable making that design on the cake.

The officer’s daughter suggested another design for the cake, a chocolate frosted cake with a thin blue line, when the baker rejected that idea too.

“She said, ‘I don’t feel comfortable doing this,’” the police officer’s daughter said. “I asked her, ‘Is there something wrong with cops?’”

She left after a third time of being rejected and said she would find another bakery.

A friend of the family posted about the incident on Facebook when the Walmart store manager called the police officer’s wife and daughter to apologize.

“Our goal is to always take care of customers,” a spokesperson for Walmart told Todd Starnes. “But, sometimes we misstep. We’re glad we were able to connect with the family to apologize and make this right.”

“He said he was so sorry,” the daughter said. “He offered to make the cake free of charge and he gave me a $50 gift card.”

The manager wound up decorating the cake himself, since the cake decorators refused to do it.

The daughter was not impressed with how the design came out, and lamented about how the bakers wouldn’t make a cake for a police officer.

“It irritates me that in Charlotte, North Carolina, the Walmart was looted and the cops were protecting them,” she said. “And you can’t make a cake for the people who are protecting you?”

EDITOR’S NOTE: You gotta remember that this is in the heart of Dixie. Maybe if police uniforms were gray instead of blue, them diehard Confederates would have welcomed making that cake.


Blacks make up only 13.3 percent of the total U.S. population, but if they suddenly disappeared:

Amount of people in poverty would drop - 34%,

The prison population would go down by - 37%,

Welfare recipients would go down by 42%,

Gang members would go down by 53%

Chlamydia cases would go down -- 54%,

Homelessness would go down - - 57%

Syphilis would go down - - - 58%.

AIDS & HIV would go down by - - 65%,

Gonorrhea would go down - - - 69%,

Average ACT scores would go UP - 5.5 points.

Average IQ would go UP - - 7.4 points, putting us 3rd in the world tied with Japan,

Average SAT scores would go UP almost - - - - - 100 points,

The average income for Americans would go UP over $20,000 a year.

EDITOR’S NOTE: I’m not sure those percentages and points are correct, but the downs and ups would certainly occur in each category.

Now, is that due to blacks being oppressed as Colin Kaepernick claims? Certainly not! It’s due largely to the fact that many blacks are uneducated, and that can be partly attributed to socio-economic conditions and discrimination.

Fayetteville high school history teacher Lee Francis is suspended for 10 days without pay for stomping on the U.S. flag during a lesson on First Amendment rights

BarkGrowlBite | September 26, 2016

Lee Francis teaches history and civics at Massey Hill Classical High School in Fayetteville, N.C. Recently, as part of a lesson on First Amendment rights, Francis took a U.S. flag and stomped on it.

The flag stomping outraged many members of the community. Cumberland County Schools Superintendent Dr. Frank Till announced Friday that Francis was being disciplined for inappropriate conduct.

On Wednesday, Francis told ABC 11that he had been suspended for 10 days without pay. He explained he was just trying to teach his students about their First Amendment rights when he stomped on a flag in his history class. He emphasized: "I have the utmost respect for our men and women in the military. I have the utmost respect for the symbols that makes this country great. I also have respect for the laws and rights and privileges that people need to know they have."

I believe the suspension meted out to Lee Francis was adequate. It served to illustrate that an employer can discipline his employee – Kaepernick is an employee of the 49ers and the NFL – for disrespecting the flag on the job, even though the Supreme Court has ruled that burning the flag is protected speech under the First Amendment.

I might add the students also learned that free speech can have consequences.

Now compare the swift and harsh discipline dished out to Francis by the school superintendent to the NFL’s response to Kaepernick’s public misconduct. Instead of suspending Colin Kaepernick for telling the media that the police are “murderers” and for refusing to stand during the playing of the national anthem, his coach and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell praised the spoiled asshole.


Hillary’s militant interventionist foreign policies are terrifying and drag us into war, you may rely upon it

By Peter Hitchens

Daily Mail | September 24, 2016

MOSCOW, Idaho -- Here in my favorite American small town, I detect a strange, ominous feeling of approaching danger. Something has gone wrong with the USA.

I first came to Moscow, Idaho, eight years ago when the great Obama frenzy was at its unhinged peak. This is a divided place, traditional rural conservatives living alongside a Left-wing university campus, but in 2008 they coped with their deep divisions in the usual way.

People disagreed, but they did it politely and openly, and were ready to accept the result even if they did not like it. Almost every front lawn had its partisan placard.

Now politics has gone underground in an almost sinister way. I searched the town’s pleasant suburbs for a Trump or Clinton poster and found none, only a single defiant declaration of support for America’s Jeremy Corbyn, the Left-winger Bernie Sanders, who long ago quit the race.

Republican headquarters in Main Street until recently contained posters supporting lots of the party’s candidates for local office, but none at all for Donald Trump. Last week they finally managed to mention his name, but you have to look carefully for it in their window.

Democrat HQ, almost directly opposite, is nearly as coy about Hillary Clinton.

In private conversations (the only sort where people will say what they really think), you find out what this means. Democrats are holding their noses over Hillary because they despise her and wish she wasn’t their candidate.

But many Republicans are stifling their genuine enthusiasm for Trump, because – in small towns like this – they don’t want to annoy or alienate neighbours who may also be customers, clients, patients or employers.

Of course there are conservatives, usually serious Christians, who loathe and mistrust Donald Trump and see him for what he is – a balloon of noise and bluster which will one day burst in a terrible explosion of disappointment and regret.

But they have been swept aside by the great carnival of resentment and revenge which has carried Trump past all the obstacles and restraints that are supposed to prevent such people getting near real power. For Trump is the anti-Obama – emotional, irrational, a spasm.

Those who had to sit, grinding their teeth, through all the long-years of Obama-worship, now hope for their own matching hour of gloating.

And we really ought to recognise that rejoicing over the woes of your enemies is one of the greatest sinful pleasures in life. Few will turn down the chance.

I can see no good outcome of this. Adversarial politics are a good thing, but only if both sides are ultimately willing to concede that their rivals are entitled to win from time to time. But that attitude seems to have gone. Now the rule is that the winner takes all, and hopes to keep it if he (or she) can.

A narrow defeat for Trump will poison the republic. Millions of his supporters will immediately claim fraud at the polls, and nothing will convince them otherwise. The bitterness of the Florida ‘hanging chad’ episode of 2000 will seem like brotherly love compared with that fury.

A victory for Trump – decisive or narrow – will give astonishing powers to a lonely, inexperienced, ill-educated old man who (I suspect) is increasingly terrified of winning a prize he never really intended or expected to obtain.

A clear victory for Hillary Clinton would create even greater problems. Educated, informed people here believe that there are serious doubts about her health. Even if they are wrong, her militant interventionist foreign policies are terrifying.

I lived through the Cold War and never believed we were in real danger. But I genuinely tremble at the thought of Mrs Clinton in the White House. She appears to have learned nothing from the failed interventions of the past 30 years, and scorns Barack Obama’s praiseworthy motto: ‘Don’t do stupid stuff.’

She will do stupid stuff, and drag us into it, you may rely upon it.

How odd it is, to hear on the air the faint but insistent sound of coming war, here in this place of sweet, small hills, rich soil and wistful, mountainous horizons.

Men came here in search of what we all really desire, to be left alone to get on with the really important aims of life, to build a home and raise a family, to see the fruits of their labour, to believe what they wish to believe.

I cannot quite work out how the good, sane impulse that gave birth to the USA could possibly have led us to this nightmare choice between two equally horrible outcomes.

I shall just have to carry on hoping that I am wrong.


Bronx charter school teacher accused of beating, robbing student who pocketed his weed money allegedly threatened teen’s mom with rape ‘every day after work’

By Megan Cerullo, Thomas Tracy and Larry McShane

New York Daily News | September 25, 2016

This Bronx teacher had no class.

Charter school instructor Kevin Pope, outraged when a student robbed him of $4,000 in drug money, beat the teen senseless and threatened to have his mother raped, authorities charged Saturday.

“You better get my money,” the teacher snapped at the battered 16-year-old after the Wednesday beatdown, according to court papers. “You know where I work.”

Pope, 48, repeatedly punched the boy in the face, knocking him backward into the glass window of a local business before the teen collapsed on the sidewalk, a criminal complaint charged.

“Do you want to die?” Pope allegedly shouted at the teen. “You want to steal from me? I should break your arm ... I should get someone to rape your mom every day after work.”

The victim needed three staples to close several deep wounds on the back of his head after the beating near the John V. Lindsay Wildcat Academy in Hunts Point, according to the complaint.

The instructor’s attack on the teen was captured on surveillance video, Assistant District Attorney Gerard Donahue said.

Pope was released without bail Saturday after a Bronx hearing where his lawyer bizarrely claimed the student had simply stolen the science teacher’s briefcase — which was filled with $5,000 in cash.

Police sources indicated the youth made off with the cash in a June drug deal gone bad. And a criminal complaint charged that Pope robbed the 16-year-old student of a gold chain, iPhone and wallet during the Wednesday assault.

Pope, per his lawyer’s instructions, said nothing as he left the courtroom. The instructor was charged with assault, grand larceny, criminal possession of stolen property and robbery, and Judge Harold Adler issued orders of protection requiring Pope to steer clear of the victim and his mom.

Bronx Judge Harold Adler took a skeptical view of defense attorney Japel Filiaci’s claim that Pope was robbed while riding a city bus with all that cash.

When Adler asked what Pope was doing with that much money on mass transit, Filiaci said she never asked.

“He took the money out, maybe to transfer it,” the lawyer replied.

The extracurricular drama began three months ago, when the teen told the teacher he had a drug connection in Manhattan, police sources said.

Pope agreed to pay $4,000 for roughly a pound of weed, possibly in hopes of peddling the pot — and the pair went to meet with the dealer, according to sources.

But the transaction collapsed when the connection demanded $7,000 — and the student walked away with Pope’s cash.

The teacher finally approached the teen on Wednesday to settle the debt.


Houston cop caught in prostitution sting run by his own department

Some cops find it harder to keep their peckers holstered than to keep their guns holstered.

It’s gotta be embarrassing to get caught trying to fuck a street walker who is an undercover officer from your own department.

Since he was going to pay $200, it is obvious he did not get the usual 50 percent police discount cops get at fast food joints and other retail establishments.

Here is a brief account of soon to be ex-officer Jermaine Tyree Owens.


By Ashlynn Turner | Click 2 Houston | September 22, 2016

HOUSTON - A Houston police officer was caught offering money to engage in sexual acts with an undercover officer, according to court documents.

Jermaine Tyree Owens, was arrested for agreeing to have sexual intercourse with an undercover officer at a Motel 6 around 7:25 p.m. Sept. 21, court documents said.

Owens offered to pay an undercover officer $200 to have both oral and straight sex with him, according to reports.

He was arrested on the spot.

Owen is a 13-year veteran of the Houston Police department assigned to the west side patrol, according to police.

Police said he has been relieved of duty with pay pending the outcome of the investigation.

Owens is set to make his first court appearance on Sept. 29 for the charges of soliciting prostitution.

For his tweets on social media, the Seattle Mariners have suspended Clevenger without pay for the rest of the baseball season

BarkGrowlBite | September 25, 2016

Another tweeter bite the dust for expressing his opinions on social media. On Thursday, Seattle Mariners Catcher Steve Clevenger posted the following tweets:

“Black people beating whites when a thug got shot holding a gun by a black officer haha shit cracks me up! Keep kneeling for the anthem”

“BLM is pathetic once again! Obama you are pathetic once again! Everyone involved should be locked behind bars like animals”

While I agree that BLM and Obama are pathetic, I certainly would not say “haha shit cracks me up” about the situation in Charlotte. Nor would I say to lock them up like animals. Clevenger was clearly out of line and his remarks are being construed as racist by those who are uber-sensitive to any derogatory statements about blacks.

Thus Clevenger joins scores of cops who’ve had their words on social media come back to chew apart their dumb asses.

I believe the Mariners were correct in suspending Clevenger without pay for the remaining 10 games of the season. Seattle is out of the playoffs. I suspect the Mariners will end up firing Clevenger.

Now compare the swift and harsh discipline dished out by the Mariners to the NFL’s response to Kaepernick’s public misconduct. Instead of suspending Colin Kaepernick for telling the media that the police are “murderers” and for refusing to stand during the playing of the national anthem, his coach and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell praised the spoiled asshole.


Does this mean they are now besties? Not a chance!

By Bob Walsh

Ted Cruz reversed himself and on Friday decided to go ahead and endorse Donald Trump. Does this mean they are now best buds? No. What it means is that Ted Cruz is still a relatively young man and is certainly going to be a candidate again for President. He is disliked enough by the mainstream Republicans as it is. If he can at least say he backed his party's nominee, even though he disliked the man and had been dissed by him, publically and repeatedly, it will help him down the road.

Will it help Trump? Somewhat, yes. Will it be significant. That depends. If it gets him 10,000 votes and he wins by 9,000, yes. Remember a few thousand votes in the right precincts in Florida would have made Al Gore president instead of Bush 43.

What it means is that Cruz has joined the "Hold your nose and vote for Trump" crowd. Trump might be a jerk but Hillary would be a disaster. Sometimes in real life there are no good choices. Sometimes you have to go with the least bad choice. Cruz has now signed on to that premise. Welcome Aboard.

Trump suspects Sanchez is an illegal immigrant and says the popsicle cart pusher and his wife are taking jobs from Americans and should be shipped back to Mexico

Recently a stranger saw 89-year-old Fidencio Sanchez struggling to push his popsicle cart in Chicago’s Little Village, a section of Chicago that predominantly inhabited by Mexican immigrants. The stranger opened up a GoFundMe website and included a picture of the old man struggling with the popsicle cart.

On Wednesday, Sanchez was presented with a check for $384,290, the amount raised by GoFundMe.. Sanchez, who does not speak any English, thanked everybody through an interpreter.

Donald Trump noted that Sanchez does not speak English. “Here we have a man pushing a cart with Spanish writing on it in a Mexican part of Chicago and he’s probably an illegal immigrant who should be shipped back to Mexico,” said Trump.

Trump went on to demand that Chicago cops check out Sanchez to make sure he is not in this country illegally. "If they find out, as I suspect, that he is here illegally,” said Trump, “I want them to turn him over to the feds for immediate deportation back to Mexico. And I want the authorities to confiscate the $380,000 so it can be used to help secure our borders.”

Sanchez’s only daughter died recently and her sons were left in his care. His wife also used to sell popsicles but had to stop because ill health made it too difficult for the elderly woman to push the cart. She now sells Mexican candies.

Sanchez said he and his wife had to keep on working to pay the bills. He says the check will allow them to retire and meet the needs of their grandchildren.

Trump said “Their story touches me, but I can give you sad tales about countless U.S. citizens. Mr. and Mrs. Sanchez have taken jobs that could have been held by Americans. They need to be shipped back to Mexico. If they want to live in this country, they should get in line with the other Mexicans who are applying to immigrate here legally.”

Trump concluded by saying, “It’s cases like this which are the basis for my immigration policy.”


The Democratic candidate for President accuses the police of “systemic racism”

BarkGrowlBite | September 24, 2016

Hillary Clinton blamed the recent shooting of Terence Crutcher in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on the "systemic racism" among police officers. On The Steve Harvey Morning Show, Hillary said:

"We have got to tackle systemic racism. This horrible shooting again. How many times do we have to see this in our country?"

After the shooting of Keith Lamont Scott in Charlotte, N.C., Hillary tweeted:

“Another unarmed Black man was shot in a police incident. This should be intolerable. We have so much work to do. Keith Lamont Scott. Terence Crutcher. Too many others. This has got to end.”

The Congressional Black Caucus, a group that is solidly in Hillary Clinton’s camp, has demanded a nationwide investigation into "police violence."

In other words Hillary and the Congressional Black Caucus believe that America’s cops are out of control and it’s all because they are racists.

Hillary wants to know how police killings can be stopped.

I’ve got news for the bitch … instead of accusing cops of being racists and blaming the police, put the blame where it really belongs!

Granted, there have been some questionable shootings of black men and the shooting of Terrence Crutcher seems truly unjustified. But in most shootings, it was the action of a suspect that led the police to open fire.

Black Lives Matter, which has the enthusiastic support of Hillary and President Obama, is largely to blame for stirring up hatred of the police and the killings of officers in Dallas and Baton Rouge. Thus when the police confront a non-compliant black man, you really can’t blame them for having a nervous trigger finger. So, Hillary, instead of blaming the police, how about starting out with a strong condemnation of BLM and the other purveyors of hatred against the police.

And then put the blame on those blacks who are non-compliant during confrontations with the police.

Tell members of the black community that whenever they are stopped by the police, to obey all police orders, even if they believe the cops had no cause to stop them.

Tell members of the black community that in any confrontation with the police, not to make any moves that might cause the officers to be put in fear of losing their lives.

Emphasize to the black community that police confrontations with blacks are part of their effort to serve and protect the law abiding members of the black community. Tell the black community that even when these confrontations turned out to be a mistake, the police had the best interests of the black community in mind.

And Hillary, above all do not accuse the police of systemic racism! That’s pure horseshit and you know it. Your rhetoric only serves to stir up divisiveness and hatred of the police.

Oh by the way, Hillary, in case it escaped your anti-police mind, Keith Lamont Scott was shot by a black Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer, not by a white cop.

SUBJECT: Legal action against Saudis

The God-King vetoed legislation that passed OVERWHELMINGLY thru congress that would have allowed the surviving family members of 9-11 victims to file civil actions in U. S. Courts against the government of Saudi Arabia, alleging complicity in the 09-11 attacks.

There is a high degree of probability that the congress will in fact override the veto on this. Looks like Barry might be in some minor hot water with his fellow travelers in the kingdom. Democracy can be a bitch at times, not that Saudi Arabia would know anything about that. Fuck them, and the camels they rode in on.

A female resident was in her bedroom, apparently either packing or unpacking from a move, when three armed men kicked in her front door. The Lawrenceville resident responded immediately, charging out of her bedroom with pistol in hand and opening fire, to great effect.

All three of the bad guys fled immediately. One ran THRU a glass door in his effort to escape.

One of the three was found toes-up in the driveway. The other two got away, at least for now. The cops are looking for them. (I wonder if Georgia has a felony murder rule?)

The woman's male roomie showed up almost immediately after the lead stopped flying

The woman fired at least one round out thru the front doorway as the bad guys were fleeing, In the People's Republic of California that could have some criminal or civil liability attached. In Georgia I strongly suspect nobody will give a damn.

Below is the WSBTV report on this story:

September 16, 2016

GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. - Gwinnett County police are investigating a case in which a woman shot and killed one of several men breaking into her home.

Gwinnett County police said they responded to the house in the 3000 block of Spring Drive after the shooting happened just before 4 a.m. Friday.

A man and woman were sleeping inside the house when three men kicked in the front door, Gwinnett County police Cpl. Deon Washington said.

The woman grabbed her gun, confronted the three intruders and fired shots at them, Washington said.

"At least one of the other two suspects began firing back at her," Washington said. "So they were exchanging gunfire as they fled the scene."

One of the three intruders was shot and died on the scene, police said. Investigators identified the intruder as Antonia Leeks, 28, of Atlanta.

The other two intruders fled in a car and are still on the run. Washington said at least one of them is armed with a handgun. Police do not have an accurate description of the men at this time.

Police questioned the man and woman inside the home. They said the woman, who is Asian, is the owner of a restaurant. Investigators said they believe the woman was targeted and the men were trying to rob her.

"This is a very harrowing experience for anyone to endure. She's shaken. It's a very difficult experience for anyone to deal with,” Washington said.

Washington said that, luckily, there were no children in the house at the time.

By Los Angeles Police Protective League Board of Directors | September 21, 2015

Run away. If a police officer is confronted by a suspect with a weapon, those entrusted to set policies for the Police Department believe officers should run away. That’s the recent finding from the Los Angeles Police Commission which has turned Monday morning quarterbacking into a weekly agenda item at the three-ring circus they preside over every Tuesday morning.

In the Commission’s most recent decision on an officer-involved shooting, in which a suspect charged at two officers swinging an 8 to 9-inch knife, they faulted the officer for not “redeploying” to “create distance.” In plain English: the officer didn’t run away.

The key facts in this case are not in dispute. A female suspect, armed with an 8 to 9-inch knife, charged at officers, repeatedly ignored commands to stop, and was recorded yelling “shoot me” as she swung her knife from side to side.

The armed suspect quickly closed the gap between her knife and the police officers from 70 feet to less than 5 feet in under 10 seconds. That is when the first officer discharged his service weapon. The second officer involved had only three seconds to respond to the imminent threat. Even the Commission stated that “It was reasonable for Officer C to believe, in the moment when the use of force occurred, that the subject would imminently assault him with the knife.”

So where’s the beef?

The officers didn’t run away. The Commission, armed with video and their own political agenda broke down the footage frame by frame to determine that in the course of seconds, the first officer whose “position initially provided Officer C with a position of tactical advantage” lost the advantage as the suspect charged him. They wrote, “this advantage rapidly diminished as the Subject continued her advance, leaving him with neither distance nor effective cover as the Subject approached the space between two parked vehicles by which Officer C was located.”

Suspect charging from the front. Vehicles on either side. Where do you “redeploy?” Run backwards. This is absurd and it’s dangerous. What happens if the officer loses his footing with a charging suspect? What happens if the suspect runs into a nearby home or store and confronts its occupants with her weapon? What if the suspect also had a concealed gun? What is created when an officer turns tail and runs away is a large target. It’s called a back. The officer would put their lives in further jeopardy by running away if the suspect had a gun. At this close range, running away would create a self-caused danger to the officers and the public.

Chief Beck, who has absolutely no problem finding fault with officers, agreed with these officers’ actions. The Commission, with a grand total of zero years of experience in law enforcement, overruled the Chief’s decision. The Commissioners created an alternative set of facts that acknowledged that the officer was right to believe his life was in jeopardy but found fault with the officer shooting the knife-wielding suspect because the officer should have run away. Pathetic.

It sure must be easy to talk about “redeploying” an officer’s position while sipping a Diet Coke or bottled water while sitting in a police-guarded, air-conditioned room, in a cushy office chair, watching the events unfold in slow motion on a big-screen TV.

But that’s not reality. The Commission is becoming nothing more than a politically motivated rubber stamp for the warped worldview of a handful of activists that they pander to. In this instance, only Commissioner Steve Soboroff was willing to let facts and reason prevail.

The message the Los Angeles Police Commission is sending to officers confronted with a violent and dangerous suspect is clear: You can save your life or save your job, but you cannot do both. You choose.

In one case, officers fatally shot a woman armed with a knife, and in the other one, police killed a man who had thrown a beer bottle at their patrol vehicle

By Kate Mather | Los Angeles Times | September 20, 2016

The Los Angeles Police Commission concluded Tuesday that LAPD officers violated deadly-force rules in two controversial shootings last year, breaking ranks with Police Chief Charlie Beck.

The decisions come as commissioners are pushing the LAPD to reduce the number of shootings by officers, prompting department brass to revamp policies and training to emphasize that officers try whenever possible to resolve tense encounters without using their guns.

Both of the cases in the commission’s Tuesday rulings raised questions about whether the officers could have avoided using deadly force. In one case, a woman armed with a knife was fatally shot by officers. In another, police killed a man who had thrown a beer bottle at their patrol vehicle.

The commission, a civilian panel that oversees the LAPD, announced that it had faulted both officers who fatally shot James Joseph Byrd in October after a bottle shattered the back window of their police cruiser in Van Nuys. The officers told investigators they believed they had come under fire.

In the shooting of Norma Guzman nearly a week earlier, the commission found fault with the tactics and use of deadly force by one of the two officers who shot her as she was walking along a street near downtown while carrying an 8-inch knife.

Beck had concluded that both officers who shot Guzman followed the department’s policy for using deadly force, according to a written report he sent to the board. The chief also said he believed the initial rounds fired by the officers who shot Byrd fell within policy, but faulted the officers for firing an additional 11 rounds.

The review of the shootings coincides with an ongoing national debate over the use of deadly force by officers. Criticism has largely focused on police shootings of African Americans, but the discussion has swelled to include broader calls for law enforcement reform.

Byrd, a 45-year-old white man, had a history of schizophrenia, according to his autopsy report. Guzman, a 37-year-old Latina, suffered from an undiagnosed mental illness, attorneys for her family said.

Commissioner Steve Soboroff split with his colleagues and found that both officers who shot Guzman were justified in doing so. Soboroff also voted alone in finding that one of the officers who shot Byrd didn’t violate the LAPD’s deadly force rules, though he agreed the other did.

”It was very, very hard to make that determination — for all of them,” he said. “There’s possibility for reasonable people to disagree.”

It is now up to Beck to determine what, if any, punishment to hand down to the officers.

Guzman’s family, along with local activists, have called for criminal charges against the officers who shot her, questioning why they didn’t use less-lethal devices, such as Tasers, before firing their guns.

“There was no reason to shoot Norma, period,” said Arnoldo Casillas, an attorney representing Guzman’s mother.

Attorneys representing Guzman’s family previously released video of the shooting, captured by a nearby security camera. The officers were also wearing body cameras, but videos from those cameras have not been made public.

Officers confronted Guzman on Sept. 27, 2015, after someone reported a woman armed with a knife outside a barber shop on South San Pedro Street, according to Beck’s report to the commission. After spotting Guzman, the officers got out of their police SUV and drew their guns, standing behind another car parked on the street.

Guzman walked closer, the blade in her hand.

One officer yelled at Guzman to drop the knife — video from his body camera indicated he shouted the command six times, according to Beck’s report. When she was about four feet from one of the officers, both fired their guns.

Guzman yelled “Shoot me!” just before the gunfire, according to the body-camera recording cited in the report.

The time-stamped security video, which has no sound, shows the shooting happened about 10 seconds after the first officer exited the SUV.

“I was afraid that she was going to stab me or cut me with the knife or my partner,” one of the officers told investigators, according to Beck’s report. “I had no choice.”

Beck concluded that it was reasonable for the officers to believe Guzman presented an “imminent threat” of death or serious injury and thus they were justified in firing their guns. A written summary of the rationale behind the commission’s decision had not been made public as of Tuesday night.

One of the officers was criticized for not carrying a Taser, despite orders handed down by department brass just days earlier requiring every officer in the field to carry one.

The names of the officers were redacted from Beck’s report and it was unclear which officer was faulted. The LAPD has previously identified the officers who shot Guzman as Samuel Briggs and Antonio McNeely.

Jamie McBride, a director for the union that represents rank-and-file officers, criticized the commission’s decision, saying the two officers had acted appropriately to protect themselves and others from Guzman. McBride accused commissioners of sending officers a message: “You can save your life or you can save your job, but you can’t do both.”

“I would have shot that suspect 10 feet away and would have had no issue,” he said. “I would have gone to bed with no issues at all.”

Police fatally shot Byrd less than a week later.

Two officers were stopped at a red light in Van Nuys when the back window of their patrol car shattered. Fearing they were under fire, they jumped out of the cruiser and shot at a nearby man, Byrd, who they believed was responsible.

One officer told investigators he thought Byrd had a gun in his hand. The other said he saw Byrd holding a “black object.”

Police didn’t find a gun or a black object. Instead, they determined Byrd had thrown a 40-ounce beer bottle.

Beck and the commissioners were critical of the number of rounds — 18 in all — fired by the officers, which peppered nearby buildings. During the later bursts of gunfire, Beck concluded, it was not reasonable for the officers to believe that Byrd still presented an imminent threat.

Byrd was shot six times, according to his autopsy, twice in the back.

The LAPD previously identified the officers who shot Byrd as Zackary Goldstein and Andrew Hacoupian. The officers’ names were also redacted from the report released Tuesday.

The Oct. 3 shooting came during heightened tension within the LAPD after a video had circulated on social media showing what police feared was a threat against officers: a person filming an LAPD patrol car, then flashing the camera down to show a revolver. After the shooting, attorney Gary Fullerton said the officers told investigators they thought they were being ambushed because of the video.

The LAPD later determined that the video wasn't a threat against officers but a promotional clip filmed by an early 1990s rap group trying to make a comeback.

On Tuesday, Fullerton said he believed the officers were unfairly judged despite the “totality of the circumstances” — the video, hearing what they believed was gunfire and then seeing something in Byrd’s hand.

“They believed they were being attacked,” Fullerton said. “It turned out they were wrong, and that’s a tragedy. … I don’t think the officers deserved to be punished for making a reasonable decision based on the facts that they knew.”

Guzman and Byrd were among the 36 people shot by on-duty LAPD officers last year. Twenty-one of them were killed.

This year, on-duty LAPD officers have shot 17 people, according to a Times analysis. Fourteen of those people died.

EDITOR’S NOTE: That’s the problem with a civilian review board. Unlike Chief Beck, who is not all that popular with the troops, the commissioners have never walked in the shoes of a cop. Nor have they experienced the threat to life and limb that cops face on the streets.

Two interesting cases of thuggish behavior cropped up in the crime-ridden and gang-infested burg of Stockton over the last couple of days that are worth looking at.

The first one took place outside the Red Robin restaurant just across from Delta College, the local community college. The two largest shopping malls in Stockton are right there and one would think it would normally be a relatively mellow and well protected area. One might be wrong.

On Friday night shortly after 8 p.m. a 46-year old white woman and her two teenage daughters were physically attacked by about a dozen Black Lives Matter thugs, both men and women. The lady and her daughters are all physically small people, each one running about 5 foot nothing and about 100 pounds. They were punched, had bottles thrown at them and water poured on them. They were also subjected to a lot of rather nasty racial slurs while this was going on.

One of the BLM “protesters”, Xavier Rapadas, was stupid enough to post video on his facebook page wherein he stated that, “Them little white girls got beat up. I ran up on them little white bitches, got my little hit in and I dipped off. Got lost in the crowd. I had to get my own hit in.”

About 50 BLM thugs, wearing BLM t-shirts and masks, were taking part in a “march” moving southbound on Pacific Avenue when the splinter group attacked the women. The victims are asserting that there were about 15-20 cops in the immediate area just before the attack occurred, but that they somehow disappeared when the mob attacked them.

The district attorney has not yet determined if charges will be filed in the attack. I can’t help but think that if the mob was white and the victims were black it wouldn’t even be a question.

The second incident took place Tuesday. A pack of union thugs from the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) shut down a County Board of Supervisor’s meeting by continually should down the board members. The board meeting was specifically to address public safety issues. SEIU does not represent any San Joaquin County public safety employees that I am aware of. However, the SEIU thugs asserted that the 4,400 SEIU members are in a “fight for their lives” as justification for pissing in the soup. The members of the board left the dais after about 20 minutes and eventually just folded and left.


Of American adults, 78% don’t own any guns, 19% own 50% of the guns, and 3% own the other 50%

By Christopher Ingraham | The Washington Post | September 19, 2016

Just 3 percent of American adults own half of the nation's firearms, according to the results of a Harvard-Northeastern survey of 4,000 gun owners.

The survey's findings support other research showing that as overall rates of gun ownership has declined, the number of firearms in circulation has skyrocketed. The implication is that there are more guns in fewer hands than ever before. The top 3 percent of American adults own, on average, 17 guns apiece, according to the survey's estimates.

The survey is particularly useful to researchers because it asked respondents not just whether they own guns, but how many and what types of guns they own. This makes for one of the clearest pictures yet of American gun ownership, showing the concentration of most guns in the hands of a small fraction of American adults.

The study found that 22 percent of American adults say they personally own a firearm. This is lower than the percentages reported in some other recent surveys, such as those by the Pew Research Center (31 percent) and Gallup (28 percent).

Based on the percentage of people owning guns and the number of guns that respondents reported owning, the survey estimates that 265 million guns are in circulation, or more than one for every adult. This is lower than other estimates, which put the number of guns in circulation at 300 million or more.

Gun rights advocates are often skeptical of gun-ownership surveys, saying that many owners may not disclose the presence of guns to a stranger over the phone or in person. Survey researchers have generally found little evidence to support this claim. The Harvard-Northeastern survey was conducted anonymously via an online panel. The researchers told the Guardian newspaper that they did not receive any pushback from respondents about the questions, leading them to be confident in the results.

The finding that the overwhelming majority of firearms are owned by a small number of adults isn't particularly surprising. Similar patterns of concentration are seen with many other consumer goods and services, from alcohol to health care. The researchers who conducted the study say that most gun owners cite a need for protection from other people as a primary reason to own guns.

"When I look at our survey, what I see is a population that is living in fear," Deb Azrael, a Harvard researcher and one of the study's lead authors, told the nonprofit news organization the Trace. "They are buying handguns to protect themselves against bad guys, they store their guns ready-to-use because of bad guys, and they believe that their guns make them safer."

This shows a significant shift from the 1990s, when most gun owners said they owned firearms primarily for hunting and target shooting.

What Azrael and her colleagues don't know is whether owning many guns is a greater risk factor for violence, suicide or accidental injury than owning, say, one or two guns. They will be publishing their full study results in an academic journal next year.


The most pervasive form of racial discrimination at most colleges is affirmative action because the average black 12th-grader has the academic proficiency of a white eighth- or ninth-grader

By Walter Williams | Townhall | September 21, 2016

Last year's college news was about demands for safe spaces, trigger warnings and bans on insensitivity. This year's college news is about black student demands for segregated campus housing and other racially segregated campus spaces and programs. I totally disagree with these calls by black students. It's a gross dereliction of duty for college administrators to cave to these demands, but I truly sympathize with the problems that many black college students face. For college administrators and leftist faculty, the actual fate of black students is not nearly so important as the good feelings they receive from a black presence on campus. Let's examine some of the problem.

A very large percentage of all incoming freshmen have no business being admitted to college. According to College Board's 2015 report, the average combined SAT score for white students was 1576 out of a possible 2400. Black student SAT scores, at 1277, were the lowest of the seven reported racial groups ( The College Board considers an SAT score of 1550 as the benchmark that indicates a readiness for college-level work. Only 32 percent of white students scored at or above proficient in math, and just 7 percent of black students did. Forty-six percent of white test takers scored proficient in reading, and 17 percent of blacks did. The ACT, another test used for admission to college, produced similar results. The Journal of Blacks in Higher Education reports, in an article titled "A Major Crisis in College Readiness for Black Students," that 34 percent of whites who took the ACT were deemed college-ready in all four areas — English, mathematics, reading and science. For blacks, it was only 6 percent (

These are significant differences in academic preparation between white and black students. I am sure that the differences give black students feelings of inferiority and being out of place. Black college students across the country have demanded segregated housing and other "safe spaces" on campuses designated for students of color. Students calling for segregated spaces do so because they allege their campuses are oppressive, are discriminatory and represent institutionalized racism. For decades, colleges have purchased peace by creating whole departments of ethnic, diversity and multicultural studies. All too often, these "studies" are about propaganda and not serious education. Plus, they provide students with an opportunity to get an easy A.

The most pervasive form of racial discrimination at most colleges is affirmative action. In the name of helping people from groups that have suffered past discrimination, colleges admit black students whose academic preparation differs significantly with that of their white peers. Those differences are not subtle. It should not come as a surprise that the intended beneficiaries of that "benign" discrimination feel themselves ridiculed, isolated and treated differently. As a result, students who might be successes in a less competitive environment are turned into failures. One faculty member at a historically black college put it this way: "The way we see it, the majority schools are wasting large numbers of good students. They have black students with admissions statistics (that are) very high, tops. But these students wind up majoring in sociology or recreation or get wiped out altogether."

The problem of black education begins long before college. The National Assessment of Educational Progress, known as The Nation's Report Card, shows that nationally in 2015, only 7 percent of black 12th-graders scored proficient in math, and only 17 percent did so in reading. This suggests that the average black 12th-grader has the academic proficiency of a white eighth- or ninth-grader. Consider the following question: If one admits 1,000 randomly selected eighth- and ninth-graders to college and admits 1,000 randomly selected 12th-graders, who do you think is going to come out on top? Who would be surprised if the eighth- and ninth-graders felt inferiority, oppression and insensitivity?

The academic elite feel righteous seeing blacks on campus, even if they are severely mismatched. Black people must ask: Are we going to sacrifice our youngsters so that white liberals can feel good about themselves?

I'll teach this jerk to encroach on my territory.

Charlie Crist, former Republican Governor of Florida, who became a turncoat by switching to the Democratic Party, missed his calling. Monday evening Crist had a crowd rolling in the aisles with laughter. Charlie should have become a standup comedian.

Actually Crist, who is now running against the Republican incumbent for a seat in Congress, had no intention of making any one laugh. During a debate with his Republican opponent, Crist enthusiastically heaped praise on Hillary Clinton:

“I am proud of Hillary Clinton. I think she’s been a very good secretary of state, a very good senator from the state of New York. The thing I like most about her is I believe she is steady, I believe that she is strong, I believe that she is honest, and I look forward to voting for her.”

As soon as he said honest, the crowd broke out in laud laughter. There were also some boos, no doubt directed at Charlie for praising Hillary..

“I believe that she is honest.” Wait a minute Charlie. Hillary is a perpetual liar, if not an outright crook. How in the world can you say she is honest? You weren’t smoking some funny tobacco, were you? If you truly believe that Hillary is honest, you must still believe in the tooth fairy.

Like the crowd at the debate, I too had a good laugh when I heard a recording over my car radio of what you said about Hillary and the spontaneous laughter that followed.

But for me personally, the best moment came Tuesday afternoon. I was visiting a good friend. He just passed his 89th birthday. He has been in and out of hospitals for the past two years with strokes and heart problems.. He’s back home now, but practically on his death bed. During the visit, I told him that Crist had said Hillary is honest. For the first time in two years I saw him laugh out loud. And he kept laughing and laughing.

Charlie, like I said, you should have become a standup comedian. You’ve just told the most hilarious joke of the year. I'm still laughing.

“In many ways the performances of Donald Trump remind me of male chimpanzees and their dominance rituals. In order to impress rivals, males seeking to rise in the dominance hierarchy perform spectacular displays: stamping, slapping the ground, dragging branches, throwing rocks. The more vigorous and imaginative the display, the faster the individual is likely to rise in the hierarchy, and the longer he is likely to maintain that position.”

That’s what anthropologist Jane Goodall, who is famous for having lived with chimpanzees in the African jungle, told James Fallows according to a story in the October 2016 issue of The Atlantic.

Fallows says Goodall compared Trump’s behavior to that of male chimpanzees shortly before he won the Republican nomination.

In The Atlantic article, Fallows said: “In her book My Life With the Chimpanzees, Goodall told the story of ‘Mike,’ a chimp who maintained his dominance by kicking a series of kerosene cans ahead of him as he moved down a road, creating confusion and noise that made his rivals flee and cower. She told me she would be thinking of Mike as she watched the upcoming debates.”

Now, If Jane Goodall had compared Barack Obama to chimpanzees, that would have been considered racist.


More Americans believe that a large, hairy, hominoid creature [Bigfoot] inhabits the forest of North America than believe that Hillary Clinton tells the truth

By Marc A. Thiessen | The Washington Post | September 19, 2016

Hillary Clinton tells us she is recovering from a mild case of pneumonia, but less than half of American voters believe her belated explanation of why she appeared to faint leaving a 9/11 commemoration. If she wants to understand why, she can find the answer in a children's poem.

In his 1907 classic, "Matilda Who told Lies, and was Burned to Death," Hilaire Belloc tells the story of a young girl who "told such Dreadful Lies, It made one Gasp and Stretch one's Eyes." One day Matilda calls in a false alarm to London's fire brigade, and as punishment is left home alone while her aunt goes to the theater:

That Night a Fire did break out--
You should have heard Matilda Shout!
You should have heard her Scream and Bawl,
And throw the window up and call
To People passing in the Street . . . but all in vain!
For every time She shouted "Fire!"
They only answered "Little Liar!"
And therefore when her Aunt returned,
Matilda, and the House, were Burned.

Today, it is the American people who have been burned, time and again, by Hillary Clinton's dreadful lies. Let's review just a few examples of her serial dishonesty:

She lied repeatedly about her emails. She lied when she said she had "turned over everything I was obligated to turn over" (FBI Director James Comey said the FBI "discovered several thousand work-related e-mails that were not among the group of 30,000 e-mails returned by Secretary Clinton to state in 2014"). She lied when she said there was "no classified material" in her private emails . . . that there was nothing "classified at the time" . . . and that there was nothing "marked classified" in her private emails - all of which the FBI director said were untrue. And, to top it all off, she lied about her lies - declaring on national television that "Director Comey said my answers were truthful, and what I've said is consistent with what I have told the American people" - a claim The Post's Fact Checker gave "Four Pinocchios."

Clinton lied to the American people about Benghazi. At 10:08 p.m. the night of the attack, she issued a statement that blamed the attack on "inflammatory material posted on the Internet" with no mention of terrorism or al-Qaeda. But an hour later, at 11:12 p.m. she emailed her daughter, Chelsea: "Two of our officers were killed in Benghazi by an Al Queda-like [sic] group." The next day in a phone call with the Egyptian prime minister, Clinton said: "We know the attack in Libya had nothing to do with the film. It was a planned attack, not a protest." Yet two days later, as she welcomed the caskets of the fallen in Dover, Delaware, she blamed that attack on "an awful Internet video that we had nothing to do with."

She lied about a trip she made to Bosnia, claiming that she and her team arrived "under sniper fire," skipped the arrival ceremony and "just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base." In fact, a video shows her being greeted on the tarmac by Bosnian officials and an 8-year-old Muslim girl, Emina Bicakcic, who read a poem in English and told Clinton, "There is peace now."

She lied about her family history. In 2015, she said she could relate to illegal immigrants because "all my grandparents" immigrated to the United States. When BuzzFeed's Andrew Kaczynski pointed out that three of Clinton's four grandparents were born in the United States, a Clinton spokesman said "her grandparents always spoke about the immigrant experience and, as a result she has always thought of them as immigrants."

And her dishonesty stretches back decades. As the late, great William Safire pointed out in a 1996 New York Times column, she delivered a "blizzard of lies" as first lady - about Whitewater, the firing of White House travel aides, her representation of a criminal enterprise known as the Madison S&L and how she made a 10,000 percent profit in 1979 commodity trading simply by studying the Wall Street Journal. Even back then, Safire concluded, Clinton was "a congenital liar."

Today, the American people agree. A recent NBC News poll found that just 11 percent of Americans say Clinton is honest and trustworthy. To put that in perspective, 14 percent of American voters believe in Bigfoot. In other words, more Americans believe that a large, hairy, hominoid creature inhabits the forest of North America than believe that Hillary Clinton tells the truth.

So if Clinton wonders why so many believe she is lying about her health, it is because she has lied so many times, about so many things, that most Americans no longer believe a word she says - even if she's telling the truth.

When she opens her mouth, people look at her like Belloc's Matilda and say, "Little Liar."

EDITOR’S NOTE: And former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, now running for a seat in Congress, says Hillary is honest. Ha ha ha ha ha ha …………ha ha
