Patriot Day...the shot heard round the world (Blog)
Submitted by: Robert Lewis

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"Today marks the 229th anniversary of an event that gets talked of a bit in primary school (the shot heard round the world) but seldom mentioned afterwards. Most people think of the bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City. Some think back on the murder of civilians by the federal government in Waco, Texas. If the origin of the 19th of April's significance is ever mentioned it's only in passing."

"But today marks the day when common citizens with paramilitary arms fired on troops of their own government when said government moved to implement gun control. Let that sink in for a moment: the reason the first shots in the war for American independence were fired were because the citizens of Massachusetts were violently opposed to gun control. )Yes - that Massachusetts!)"
 

Democrat pollsters urge look at 22 million nonvoting unmarried women [How about those 80 million gun owners?]

"This is the largest group of nonvoting people out there.... They are 3-1/2 times the [number] of NASCAR dads and double the [number] of soccer moms, which is a huge proportion of the electorate."

-------
And about one-fourth the number of gun owners, if we would all pull together...

KABA Note: Unfortunately it seems gun owners cannot agree on a candidate. Some will definitely vote for gun-grabbing, freedom-trampling George W. Bush again, while a great many others have had it with Bush and the GOP and will vote their conscience this year.

"The concept of wasting your vote by voting for a third party is making a comeback in this election year. I'm going to talk about wasting your vote, too, but there's a catch. I'm going to tell you that, unless you live in a closely-contested state or district, voting for either major-party candidate is wasting your vote. The conventional wisdom on third-party candidates is wrong -- and here's why." ...
 

"Rock the Vote" is not "non-partisan" (Letter)

"Articles about how the current Republican administration is censoring free speech (among other evils), how to write congress to prevent oil drilling in ANWR, how to get more money for education, and goofy stories with pictures of kids during the New Hampshire Democratic Primary accompanied by slobbering adoring praise of the Democratic candidates. Website links to left-wing groups such as People For The American Way, the U.C. Berkeley Labor Center for Young Workers, NOW, various labor unions including the AFL-CIO, and anti-gun groups. The only thing that the 'non-partisan' Rock the Vote site appears to be missing are pictures of Lenin and Marx or George W. Bush with a Hitler mustache!"

"San Joaquin County prosecutors acted reasonably by not criminally charging six California Youth Authority employees for the videotaped beating of two young wards, Attorney General Bill Lockyer said Friday."

"Youth Authority officials had asked Lockyer to do what local prosecutors wouldn't, and the attorney general's decision not to bring charges may prompt the authority to seek federal charges, Director Wayne Allen said."

"A spokesman for the prison guards' union said he expects internal discipline and lawsuits, as well as a civil rights review by the U.S. Justice Department."

"The Fire Department has warned its members to be careful entering stairwells and rooftops after two on-duty firefighters walked onto a Brooklyn roof and were confronted by two NYPD cops with their guns drawn and pointed at them, The Post has learned."

"While the cops didn't shoot, fire officials believed the incident was serious enough to issue a safety bulletin to every firehouse this month."

If Joe Six-pack confronts anyone with a gun drawn (pointed at someone) they can be charged with felony aggravated assault and thrown in jail for five to ten years. No double standard here?!

" 'I don't think the man deserves an award. This man is still harming people! No!' says Teresa Teeter, who was one of those outside the courthouse."

"But that is what happened Saturday at American Legion Post #1 where officer Jason Sery was honored as Portland's top cop, an award handed out by the American Legion to one officer every year."

"She needed her 94-year-old mother to come to her rescue."

"And in the middle of the dogfight -- in which Eunice Crowder was pepper-sprayed, Tasered and knocked to the ground by Portland's courageous men in blue -- the poor woman's fake right eye popped out of its socket and was bouncing around in the dirt."

"How vicious and ugly can the Portland police get? Ladies and gentlemen, I think we have a winner. ..." ...

"The cops aren't apologizing."

"The cops aren't embarrassed."

"The cops haven't been disciplined."

"And the cops are still insisting, to the bitter end, that they 'reasonably believed' this blind ol' bat was a threat to their safety and macho culture."

-------
This is the kind of repugnant case that my husband, a peace officer, says makes him embarrassed to wear a police uniform. These are the types of cops who deserve scorn, contempt and need to be punished to the fullest extent of the law, to include loss of their badges and jail time in the meanest, nastiest prisons available.

"Two Flemish-speaking police officers from Brussels were scouting out a prison near the francophone town of Charleroi when local police stopped their unmarked car for a suspected driving offence."

"They were in civilian outfits. They showed their police cards but the local police didn't believe them."

"A scuffle started after local officers refused to accept the identity cards of their federal colleagues, and one of the Flemish officers needed hospital treatment after being put in an arm-lock."

"Prisoners jumped from the walls of a Brazilian prison to escape an uprising in which inmates have butchered their foes, severed their heads and brandished them from the walls."

"At least nine prisoners have been killed in five days of unrest at the Urso Branco prison. Hungry prisoners have been reduced to hunting for cats to eat, a police spokesman said Thursday."

"Riots are common in Brazil's prisons but this one has been particularly brutal."

"President Vicente Fox is appealing for honesty among Mexico's leaders as federal prosecutors investigate a state governor for possible links with drug-related murders."

" 'Democracy demands from all, and especially from leaders, strict vigilance regarding compliance with the law and transparency,' Fox told a news conference."

" 'It also demands honesty in any event and to behave with strict devotion to responsible ethics,' Fox said, his anti-corruption drive in tatters following a string of political scandals this year."

"His comments came a day after thousands took to the streets in the city of Cuernavaca, to demand the resignation of Morelos Gov. Sergio Estrada, who is being probed in connection with two murders."

-------
Just remember, these are the elite who control the corrupt cops in Mexico -- the same "stellar professionals" who, according to Sarah Brady, should be the only ones allowed to possess firearms.

"A spate of deadly police shootings in California has some officials worried that street gang culture, known to reward cop killers with status and respect, is ever emboldening gunmen to target officers."

"The latest victim was a CHP officer shot and killed this week as he exited a court house."

"Some believe the slayings could signal something more ominous than the kind of peril officers usually face."

D.C. police are still trying to find the gunman who shot two people in a Northwest Washington neighborhood.

The shooting happened just before three p.m. Friday in the 900 block of Longfellow Street Northwest.

Police say one of the victims is a 25-year-old man who was running away from someone who was shooting at him. The other is a 45-year-old woman who was shielding her two-year-old son from the gunfire.

Neither victim is being identified because they are witnesses. Both are recovering at area hospitals.

MO: Backlog of background checks results in longer wait

"Schools that need to check out a potential teacher and churches seeking information about youth group volunteers sometimes wait months in Missouri to receive the results of a state background check."

"The time on hold can mean scaled-back church camps, delays in certifying teachers and school bus drivers or — in another area where background checks are required — an even longer wait for couples trying to adopt a child."

"Part of the delay stems from the sheer volume of requests to the agencies that examine individuals' personal histories for crimes and other significant details. But there's a new factor — Missouri's concealed guns law, which has poured thousands of requests for background checks into the system."

-------
Here's a novel idea: blame citizens who want to exercise their rights and defend themselves against armed thugs for taking away resources for youth camps and churches.

We would submit that maybe if Missouri restored freedom and allowed its citizens to carry concealed firearms without treating each and every gun owner like a potential criminal, churches and youth groups wouldn't have to wait as long for background checks.

It's absolutely unconscionable that this reporter treats this story as just another homicide, instead of a self-defense case. "In a county where there usually is only one prosecutable homicide a year," the report laments, "Bradford County District Attorney Stephen Downs pointed out Friday that there have been four shooting deaths within the past month in Bradford County."

A man was in the process of breaking into someone's home and was shot for his trouble. To lump this in with "prosecutable homicides" is absurd!

"A Chemung man was shot to death Friday morning after breaking into another man's home in Towanda -- the fourth shooting death in the county in a month and the second in two days." ...

"Arthur Croteau, 50, whose estranged wife was at the shooting scene, broke into Tim Philmeck's apartment at 112 Bridge St. in Towanda by forcing open a kitchen window, state police said."

"When he realized that the window was being opened, Philmeck, 57, retrieved a .357-caliber Magnum from an end table, according to a police report."

"Police said that as Croteau approached Philmeck, Philmeck shot him about three times in the hand, chest and neck. It was unknown whether Croteau brandished a weapon."

""I had always believed the rural schools are very safe, and generally they are. But we have lots of arms in rural areas. We have a culture of hunting and gun collecting," Mettler said. "We need to be aware that that creates a situation where children have greater access to weapons."

It certainly appears as if the young man is being jailed for defending himself against someone who literally outgunned him in a confrontation.

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A man convicted of a lesser charge in the death of a teen beat with a brick has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Prosecutors charged 21-year-old Kenji Littlejohn with murder, but a Cherokee County jury Wednesday convicted him on the lesser charge of voluntary manslaughter.

Littlejohn testified he beat 16-year-old Kenneth Allen because the teen pulled a gun on him in December 2002.

The two were arguing after a basketball game, Littlejohn said.

After the verdict, Littlejohn apologized to Allen's grandmother, Mary Williams, saying he didn't intentionally kill her grandson.

"The state has authorized a limited hunt to reduce Winchester's burgeoning deer population."

"About double the number of naturally supportable deer are living in the city's western half this year. Crowding has forced the animals to eat poisonous plants, scavenge and intrude on portions of Glen Burnie Historic House and Gardens." ...

"Four officers from the Winchester Police Department's special operations team are participating, along with one animal control officer. Officers are using rifles with suppressors to reduce gun noise, but the sounds are not completely silenced, said Police Chief Gary W. Reynolds."

"National Guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently banned assault weapons were ambushed on April 19th by elements of a para-military extremist faction. Military and law enforcement sources estimated that 72 were killed and more than 20 injured before government forces were compelled to withdraw."

"Speaking after the clash, Massachusetts Governor Thomas Gage declared that the extremist faction, which was made up of local citizens, has links to the radical right-wing tax protest movement. Gage blamed the extremists for recent incidents of vandalism directed against internal revenue offices." ...

"Governor Gage has called upon citizens to support the state/national joint task force in its effort to restore law and order. The governor has also demanded the surrender of those responsible for planning and leading the attack against the government troops.
