"Bullet links Virginia shooting to others"

"Each victim died from a single bullet fired from a high-powered rifle or handgun across some distance, perhaps as much as 650 yards. Tests on bullet fragments indicate the same gun — a weapon using .223-caliber ammunition."

"The bullets were probably armor piercing — black-tipped, copper-jacketed missiles with a solid steel core. More powerful than regular loads, armor-piercing ammunition can pass through a person, making it difficult for police to find a sample for a ballistics test." ...

In many cases he is naked, sometimes wearing sunglasses, sometimes a shirt, police said.

The suspect has struck twice at a sorority house and 3 incidents have been reported at an apartment complex.

Melikidse showed no emotion as the verdict was read. He was arrested inside a home where the family was terrorized for 3 hrs. Deputies said he barged in with a stolen 9 mm pointed at the homeowner's head after the man answered an early morning knock at the door, then forced the man & wife to bind each other with packing tape. He sexually assaulted the 18 yr old daughter asleep upstairs.

Investigators say he was on a 2-3 day crime spree involving at least 3 burglaries in the area before his arrest. [And none of those people was armed and prepared to shoot this scumbag?!]

"In ninth grade, I was the victim of pervasive, severe racial and sexual harassment. I was incessantly called names such as 'whore' and 'slut.' Vulgar songs were sung openly about me during classes. My home was vandalized repeatedly."

"Teachers and school officials did little to help me. When I told one school official about my classmates' discussions of their plans to pool their lunch money to buy a rifle to shoot me, he suggested that my problems would end if I would only be more submissive, 'like the other girls.' After realizing that school officials were unwilling to help protect me, I was forced to transfer to another high school. My self-esteem, dignity and sense of optimism were greatly diminished."

A Judicial Conduct Board recommended unpaid suspension for a judge who extorted $13,000 from an atty whose firm had cases pending before him so he could use the money to pay off debts by promising to call for mass settlement of 100’s of asbestos cases brought by the firm & order defendants to pay $500 per case.

Jaffe’s atty said he has a right to a hearing before he loses his $119,000 yr salary; that it is blatantly unfair that he should have to defend himself before facing federal prosecutors.

"At one point, he got into a heated exchange with a Bethesda attorney who demanded to know how the candidate could justify his view that more gun control laws are unnecessary."

" 'It worries me because they pound on the issue all the time in this state,' said Bill Rauser, 55, a Republican. 'This state is so liberal that I think the mindset is that gun control works.' " ...

"Even before last week's shootings, polls showed that Montgomery County voters - who make up one-sixth of the state's electorate - favor stricter gun laws, including an outright ban on handguns."

QUESTION:

If "polls showed that Montgomery County voters" supported "an outright ban" on automobiles, would that make it Constitutional? Or does the reporter who wrote this story think it's legal to do whatever an igornant mob wants to do?

Why is the media making such a big deal over this miscreant's work?
-------
"Making fun of Canada is such an all-American pastime that watching Michael Moore's "Bowling for Columbine" with a Canadian crowd at the Toronto International Film Festival last month felt like payback. Mr. Moore's latest gadfly documentary, opening in New York and Los Angeles on Friday, tackles America's love affair with guns and its egregious number of gun deaths — more than 11,000 annually — compared with that of other countries. The comparison he finds most telling is with hunting-happy Canada, where there are 7 million guns for a population of 33 million — a ratio similar to our own — but fewer than 400 deaths a year. So you might say that the joke's on us." ...

"As for the grainy surveillance-camera footage capturing two boys moving among cafeteria tables at Columbine High, picking off their panic-stricken classmates, that all-too American scene engulfed the crowd in a silence so profound it felt as impenetrable as the actions on screen." ...

"A judge ruled Friday that jurors can see gruesome crime scene and autopsy photos in the multiple murder trial of Jonathan and Reginald Carr."

"The brothers stood quietly behind their attorneys and looked intently at the evidence, presented Friday by prosecutors to defense attorneys and Sedgwick County District Judge Paul Clark."

"The Carrs are facing a combined 113 counts -- including capital murder, kidnapping, robbery, burglary, rape and criminal sodomy, among other crimes. Both brothers face the same 55 charges. In addition, Reginald faces three additional charges related to being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm."

These black men forced their way into a home, forced white victims to have sex with each other, raped and sodomized the women, forced them all to remove money from ATM machines, and executed all but one of them. (The survivor was spared by accident after she was shot in the head but lived.)

OK: Self-defense cited in case where man killed trooper in unannounced "no knock raid"
Submitted by: Newslinks Admin

ORIGINAL TITLE: "Firearms, ammunition found in defendant's home"
-------
SALLISAW (AP) - "Investigators found firearms and plenty of ammunition when they searched the home of a man accused of killing an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper in a drug-raid shootout, according to testimony on Friday."

"Authorities found a .223-caliber semiautomatic rifle and a 12-gauge double-barrel shotgun in Kenneth Eugene Barrett's cabin after the Sept. 24, 1999, gunbattle, said Vicky Lyons, a special agent with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation."

"Prosecutors have charged Barrett, 41, with first-degree murder in the death of Trooper David 'Rocky' Eales, of rural McAlester."

"Eales, 49, and Trooper John Hamilton were in the lead Ford Bronco of a tactical team caravan that troopers say came under fire as it tried to serve a 'no-knock' warrant to search for methamphetamine at Barrett's cabin."

"Barrett, of McKey, could receive the death penalty if convicted. He also has been charged with shooting with intent to kill for shots fired at Hamilton and two counts of discharging a firearm with an intent to kill linked for shots fired at two other troopers." ...

"Barrett's attorney, John Echols, has argued that a 'flawed' tactical plan led to a tragedy that could have been prevented had troopers announced their presence on Barrett's property, which was posted for no trespassing."

"According to Echols, Barrett was acting in self-defense against a heavily armed force that attacked his home."

NOTE:
IF this man is able to get off on his "self defense" claim, he won't be the first to do so. Previous judges have ruled in favor of self-defending citizens who've come under armed assault by government employees. But it's rare. Many if not most judges protect the police state as a matter of course, throwing the right to self-defense out the window in such cases.

NORFOLK -- "City officials say they will continue to ban guns from Norfolk parks despite an appeal last week from a Virginia gun-rights group."

"About a dozen supporters of the Virginia Citizens Defense League, most of them armed, attended last week's City Council meeting to voice their opposition to the ban. Some questioned whether it is now illegal due to recent state legislation that removed local governments' ability to regulate guns and ammunition."
-------
Meanwhile, the first gunowner who goes disarmed in a city park and gets victimized by criminals who can operate unfettered by legal sanction is encouraged to sue the pants off of every last official who publicly supports these Criminal Empowerment Zones.

"The infamous Brady Bill was voted on by only two counterfeit U.S. Senators, Bob Dole and George Mitchell. They pronounced the measure adopted by unanimous consent, a 'parliamentary device' that allowed the leaders to pass the legislation themselves, by voice vote, after ascertaining that no Senator would object".
-Devvy Kidd
