"Sterling Patterson got a gun three weeks after he opened his auto accessory store..."

"I always said I wasn't ever going to use it," he said.

"But he did Tuesday morning."

"Patterson, unleashing a barrage of bullets, drove off three men trying to rob Ntense Kustom and Kar Audio ..."

"He wounded one, the force of the bullets throwing a would-be robber through a glass storm door. The trio fled in a minivan, which two of them later abandoned after it got a flat tire on I-77."

"The technology exists to 'fingerprint' a gun before it is sold, so a bullet or casing can be traced to a specific gun. The technology exists to create a national database, available to local, state and federal law authorities, containing these fingerprints. It should be possible to easily trace this gun to its purchaser, who may be the killer or could perhaps be a gun owner whose weapon was stolen by the killer. It should be possible, but it isn't, thanks to the National Rifle Association."

"According to police the officer got into a brawl with another patron on the dance floor in the basement of the club, which soon spilled into the vestibule. During the struggle, the cop apparently fired the gun hitting the victim once in the stomach."

"Police officials, who have not released the identity of either the officer or the victim, are calling the shooting justified. No arrests have been made and the investigation into the incident is ongoing."
-------
Meanwhile, it's not only illegal for The People at large to carry firearms into the bar or anywhere else in Manhattan, only a small percentage of The People even "qualify" for a "permit" to merely own a handgun for self-defensive purposes in their own homes -- and the police are using taxpayer monies to pay bounties on the heads of anyone who violates this elitist double standard.

Buried in an Athens Messenger story about Ohio gubernatorial hopeful Tim Hagan's ideas on fixing the state budget were these comments about his beliefs concerning HB274:

"Hagan is opposed to the bill as it is presently written", and says "more restrictions need to placed on the bill so law enforcement has greater discretion." 'We don't want guns in the hands of the mentally-ill, terrorists or children', Hagan said. 'Right now, it is a wide-open bill and that is totally unacceptable.' "

UK: Shadow home secretary wants young people who deny drug addiction accusations tailed by bobbies

"Parents, teachers and social workers will be urged to inform on young people they believe are addicted to hard drugs under plans to tackle crime announced by Oliver Letwin, the shadow home secretary, yesterday."

"The young addicts would be able to avoid going to court if they agreed to undergo treatment to break their habit." ...

" 'We should face them with a choice. Treatment, including all the psychological and other help required to beat the menace, or off to court. There should be no third way.' "

"He said the next Tory government would launch a campaign to encourage parents, teachers and social workers to inform the relevant agencies when they encountered an under 18-year-old believed to be addicted to hard drugs."

"Mr Letwin said if youngsters denied it police would tail them in an attempt to collect evidence for prosecution. 'All I am saying is a bobby will be outside your house and following you around and making sure you are not buying heroin or cocaine.' "

RECAP:
1) Kid is accused.
2) Kid denies guilt.
3) Kid is stalked by cop.
That pattern translates as: "Guilty until proven innocent, merely for having been accused." It may help catch some young drug addicts, but how many innocent accused people will have their lives and reputations damaged in the process of the witchhunt?

"The man, who strikes during the daytime and grabs his victims from behind, has attacked a girl as young as 10 and carried out eight assaults in the last three months alone.

FBI Called to Investigate "Lynched" Barbie Doll in School

"Lowndes County High School officials are asking the FBI to investigate the mock lynching of a black-painted Barbie doll on campus as a possible hate crime. But Sabrina Bradley, whose 14-year-old daughter, Santana, is a freshman, said her daughter was frightened by the mock lynching. The Bradleys are black. 'She came home and told me a white boy had a Barbie doll painted black with a rope around its neck like he was hanging the doll,' Bradley said."

QUESTION:

Why is a "lynched doll" so important as to garner FBI support and investigation, but the Petition for Enforcement of the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States only produces brief evasions from the D.O.J.'s terrorism division?

Are a doll's "rights" more important than the rights of real human beings, many of whom are political prisoners in America's gulag system?

OH: 6 Women Raped In 4 Months Near OSU - by knifeman

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- "Police are investigating an attempted rape near the Ohio State University campus Thursday night to find if the latest attack is connected with a series of six rapes that occurred earlier this year." ...

"The suspect pushed her inside and onto the floor of her living room. The suspect, who had a knife, attempted to sexually assault the woman, police said. .....the woman was able to fend off the attacker, who was described as a black male between 5 feet 8 inches and 5 feet 9 inches and weighing between 180 and 190 pounds."

CONSIDER...

A firearm would be most helpful against Mr. Knife-wielding Rapist -- who surely outweighs his victims. But the Commandant on campus prefers to let a strange and violent man pillage his female students, apparently... he recently publicly defied calls to allow self-defensive weapons on campus and urged police to remove flyers around campus suggesting that guns might be helpful for a defenseless woman under attack.

What kind of "man" would prevent women from stopping such a rapist as described above? What kind of woman would obey such a "law" when her dignity and safety are at stake?

"The White House's cybersecurity specialist on Tuesday lobbied technologists attending a conference to support his recommendation that the private sector and federal government create an 'Internet operations center' to constantly monitor the Internet for attacks."

"Speaking at a conference sponsored by the Internet security company Symantec, Richard Clarke, head of the White House Office of Cyberspace Security, said the federal government should take a greater role in updating and securing Internet protocols. He asked attendees to send their reactions and comments about both ideas, as well as the draft cybersecurity strategy released last month, to the White House."

"Clarke said comments regarding the national strategy would be summarized and made public after the Nov. 18 submission deadline. Because of the White House privacy policy, however, commenters' identities will remain anonymous. In the weeks following the release of the strategy, several privacy groups expressed concern that the government would not release the comments."

"The government often loses touch with the needs and concerns of the citizenry. The IRS is no exception. For example, taxpayers need to know up-front what their tax paying responsibilities are so they can comply with the law. But, the tax law is far too complex for that to be possible."

"Individuals and businesses face significant challenges in understanding the tax laws, keeping required records, and filling out numerous complicated and detailed tax forms, which often require working through lengthy and difficult instructions, ending in cumbersome calculations."

"It is imperative that the government simplify the tax law and its administration to make compliance easier for taxpayers."

PERTINENT TEXT FROM STATEMENT...
-------
"As police try to track down and stop this killer, we do know this: sensible gun laws can help law enforcement solve crimes as well as prevent gun violence. The unique markings, called the 'ballistic fingerprint,' that every gun leaves on a fired bullet or shell casing have always been helpful in investigating shootings. We have already seen the usefulness of ballistic tests in definitively linking six of the eight shootings to the same firearm.

"We have also seen the limitations to ballistic fingerprinting laws in their current form. Only two states -- Maryland and New York -- require a record be kept of every new gun's ballistic fingerprint. Both states' laws are relatively new and apply only to handguns, not all long guns, which the weapon in this case almost surely is. These limitations speak to a need for a national ballistics fingerprinting law for all firearms. Doesn't it make sense for us to give law enforcement the tools they need in order to solve such crimes?

"Furthermore, according to police, the shooter could be using one of four possible firearms to carry out this shooting spree. [IMPOSSIBLE to narrow it down to only four firearms merely from such a commonly used caliber!] Three of the four are assault rifles. It's important to remember that the federal assault weapons ban expires in September 2004. We do not want to put more military-style weapons capable of such devastation and worse back on our streets.

"The National Rifle Association, which claims to be on the side of law enforcement, fought the assault weapons ban and it fights ballistic fingerprinting laws. Instead of supporting measures that would help police solve crimes and prevent gun violence, it promotes the dangerous notion that 'an armed society is a polite society.' Sadly, far too many Americans every year pay the consequences of the NRA's 'polite society' with their lives."

"Police in Ukraine are accused of interrogation methods including electric shocks, burns and hanging people by their arms or legs, human rights investigators have been told."

"A special report from the Council of Europe's Committee for the Prevention of Torture (CPT) criticises police for their harsh methods."

"Researchers who visited Ukraine say they heard numerous allegations of ill-treatment by the police, most involving kicks, punches and truncheon blows."

"But the committee said it also heard allegations of electric shocks, asphyxiation with masks or bags, burns using cigarette lighters and suspension by the legs or arms." ...

INTERESTINGLY...

Ukrainian per capita suicide and homicide rates are reportedly higher than those in the United States.

Legislation that would have given Ukrainians "the right to bear arms" stalled in Parliament in late 1997. Citizens cannot carry firearms legally in the country, assuring that the police have easier torture subjects.

Really? This coming from a subject of a country where gun crime has increased by 100 percent after guns have been all but outlawed? Yeah, sure -- our constitutional right to keep and bear arms is responsible for this sniper's actions!

"Maryland's Democratic gubernatorial candidate, Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, has been hinting that restrictions on firearms ownership might have prevented the recent string of shootings that have terrorized the region and left at least six people dead. Although careful not to appear to be making political hay of the carnage, Mrs. Townsend nonetheless quipped not-so-elliptically the other day that there must be a new debate 'about how best to protect our citizens,' and that existing gun control laws 'save lives.' "

"Given Mrs. Townsend's well-established record of support for disarming and heavily restricting the right of law-abiding citizens to possess firearms, it is not at all difficult to parse the true meaning of her comments." ...
