"Walter McCarty, an 82-year-old retired Marine sergeant, says he is looking for adventure on the most porous part of the American border with Mexico. So, on Thursday, he signed up for the Minuteman Project, a volunteer patrol in search of furtive immigrants making the desert crossing into the United States."

"'I hope to go out on patrols at night, find some illegals,' said Mr. McCarty, who had his .38-caliber pistol strapped to his leg as he stood outside the citizen patrol's makeshift headquarters here in Tombstone, the town where Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday engaged in a shootout with the Clanton gang in 1881. 'I need some excitement. And this is better than sitting at home all day watching rattlesnakes crawl out of the den.'" ...

"While hundreds of supporters of a controversial border-watch effort gathered Thursday in the historic western town of Tombstone, Ariz., a handful of human-rights activists gathered across the border in Agua Prieta, Mexico, to counter the border-watch group, which calls itself the Minuteman Project."

"In Tombstone, more than a hundred volunteers waited on the first day of the month long project, which was spearheaded by Californians who said they wanted to shine light on problems with border security. The group's mission, they said, is to observe and report illegal immigrants coming across a 20-mile stretch of the border near the town of Naco, Ariz."

"Organizers of the Minuteman Project said they had registered more than 600 volunteers by Friday morning." ...

"They came by the hundreds Friday, men and women from across the nation, hearts brimming with righteous anger, determined to staunch the flow of illegal immigration."

"Some wore pistols slung low on their hips. Others walked the dusty streets in leather cowboy hats, wearing buttons that read: 'Undocumented Border Patrol Agent.' There were pilots, window washers, private investigators and exterminators."

"These are the new Minutemen. And for the next month, they will patrol 23 miles of desert here in southeast Arizona, the busiest corridor for illegal immigrants in the nation with about 500,000 arrests last year." ...

"Before the threats to burn it down or paint it blood red, the cabin nestled in the woods on Tanager Drive near Lake Tahoe was clearly owned by bear lovers."

"The front door featured a bear artfully etched in glass. A wood-carved bruin had a cherished place in a bedroom. And on the hour, when a cuckoo clock chimed, bears circled a merry-go-round and bobbed on a teeter-tot."

"Then, three real bears – a mother and two cubs that had denned under the house – busted in while Russ and Diane Tonda were away, ripping furniture, defecating on the floor, and prompting the couple to have them killed. Angry bear activists have dubbed them bear killers." ...

"Wade, apparently upset over his former girlfriend's whereabouts, saw her talking to someone in a car, strode over, pulled a .38 pistol out of his pocket and reached into the car, when the gun fired, police said." ...

"In 1999 when Adam was 14, he sketched a drawing of his school, East Ascension High, under attack by a missile launcher, armed individuals and explosives. The drawing also contained disparaging remarks about his principal and a racial epithet." ...

"... Adam’s younger brother, Andrew Breen, discovered [the sketchpad]. Andrew drew a picture of an animal on it. Then he took the sketchpad on the school bus to show one of his teachers. On the bus, Andrew showed his drawing to a fellow student. Flipping through the pad, that student noticed Adam’s 2-year-old drawing. The student showed the school bus driver and the cycle of overreaction began." ...

An affidavit of probable cause charging carrying a handgun without a permit on school property was filed Thursday against Robert J. Erickson in Wayne Superior Court."

The city police department hosted a three-day training program on self-defense, called Rape Aggression Defense, for eight police departments in addition to Attleboro police.

Attleboro Officers Steven Beaudette and Susan Boisse were among the dozen or so officers undergoing the training so they can become instructors and eventually teach the program to women in the city.

"The victims, five of them children, were gunned down Thursday night in two gritty northern Rio suburbs, sowing panic and chaos in the streets. Witnesses described the attacks as coming so fast and indiscriminately that bystanders had no time to flee or duck for cover."

The fact that real guns are frequently mistaken for toys by children is another concern, according to Lynch." ...
