A POLICEMAN raped a woman because she refused to have sex with him after he bought her a take-away, a court heard.

Colin Gill – a "big detective" in the regional crime squad – is also alleged to have raped the woman a second time and indecently assaulted her on a different occasion.

The Wakefield-based officer is also accused of physically assaulting her three times.

Prosecutor Adrian Waterman told a Leeds Crown Court jury that Gill had been a serving police officer for most of the time the offences are alleged to have taken place.

"'... According to insiders, LaPierre was willing to accept a renewed assault weapons ban in exchange for passage of gun industry immunity.'" ...

"The possibility that Ricker is lying must be considered, but unfortunately, it fits the facts and the events. In particular, it fits the way that the immunity bill got to a vote at all; make no mistake, the arrangement by which it reached the Senate floor involved smoke, liquor, and quid-pro-quo." ...

... "After the killing, Holly Naujoks called the Wilmington Star-News, urging the paper to highlight the problem of harassment on campus, and she said her daughter was also a victim."

"Naujoks' daughter, Christen, had obtained a restraining order against former boyfriend John Peck, according to police and court documents. Once he left 17 obscene messages on her voicemail, at one point threatening, "You're mine." Another time, he blocked her as she tried to drive off, warning he would "push her down in the seat" if she didn't stop screaming." ...

"Days before the story ran, Holly Naujoks asked the paper's executive editor not to include the names of her daughter or Peck in the story. The editor said he wasn't sure how a news article would make things worse since Peck already knew Christen Naujoks, and that she had already filed charges against him of stalking and harassment."

"Christen, 22, was killed last Friday. She was shot with an assault rifle, and shortly after the murder, police said Peck's father called 911, saying his son had just called and said he had shot someone." ...

"A Butler County man has been sentenced for the murder of his ex-girlfriend."

"Police said Anthony Mason broke into Angela Turley's Hamilton, Ohio, apartment then shot her in the head."

"Mason, who was sentenced to 23 years to life in prison, said in court Thursday that 'everyone is a liar' and 'I didn't do it.'"

"Police said Turley did have a restraining order out against Mason. Neighbors told 9News the two had a turbulent relationship."

"Turley's mother, who lived with her, was also assaulted during the ordeal, police said."

Ronald Reagan: The Gun Owner's Champion

"In our September 1975 issue, Ronald Reagan, then two-time Governor of California, penned this column. A man of conviction, Ronaldus Magnus was true to these words before and during his eight-year presidency."

"There are tales of robbery victims that are shot down in cold blood or executed "gangland style." There are stories of deranged parents killing their children or deranged children killing their parents. There are reports of snipers. And now and then the headlines blurt out that an assassin has struck again, killing a prominent official or citizen. All of these stories involve the use of guns, or seem to. As a result, there is growing clamor to outlaw guns, to ban guns, to confiscate guns in the name of public safety and public good."
-------

Unfortunately there are many people who feel this way about Reagan, despite his support for the Brady Bill, waiting periods, gun bans and his opposition to CCW. It shows the sad state of affairs in the civil rights community when such a compromiser is viewed as a "champion" of gun rights.

"An Allegheny County police officer who's accused of stealing enough ammunition to blow up an entire neighborhood won't be getting out of jail on bond as he had hoped."

"Mark Short, 42, a 13-year police veteran and SWAT team member, is accused of stealing 10,000 rounds of ammunition from the county."

"During at raid at his home in Moon Township, investigators found a military stockpile including automatic weapons, machine guns, hand grenades, blasting caps, C4 explosives, rocket launchers and anti-tank weapons."

"Though Short was hoping Common Pleas Judge Donald Machen would lower his $100,000 bail today, the district attorney's office threatened to invoke a constitutional amendment denying bail for offenses that threaten public safety." ...

"Police records show that 180 guns were reported stolen on St. Croix alone in the last decade, U.S. Attorney David Nissman said Thursday."

"Those guns often end up being used in crime sprees. To curb the use of such firearms in criminal activities, federal and local officials are coming together to help get guns off the street through Project Safe Neighborhoods initiatives." ...

"Licensed firearm owners will play a large role in the effort, Nissman indicated."

"'We're going to ask those people to subject their weapon to voluntary fingerprinting,' he said, adding that this will require licensed gun owners to fire their weapons so that law enforcement officials can retain projectiles and spent shells to be matched up to evidence found at crime scenes." ...
-------

If they are concerned about stolen weapons being used in crimes, how will this help? Or is this more along the lines of "All Jews are asked to voluntarily report to the Geheime Staatspolizei for protective registration"?

"More than 100 Civil War enthusiasts will descend upon the Highway 152 roadside stop to stage a Civil War battle re-enactment this weekend."

"The enthusiasts belong to the American Civil War Association, which has members from all over California. They’re Civil War buffs who are pretty well read on the war in general, with specialties in certain battles, years or units."

"They won’t be staging a specific battle, but there is one thing that’s certain: the outcome. The association fights two battles a day, and each side wins one. So if the South wins in the morning, the North will win in the afternoon." ...

"American travelers are finding blades planted in their luggage, and it looks as if federal workers - make that employees - are culpable." ...

"After Grindle and his family returned from an airline trip to Florida, they found wire cutters in one of their bags, along with a note that said a screener from the Transportation Security Administration had inspected the suitcase." ...

"'I've been to Europe, where they search your bags in front of you, and I have no trouble with that,' Grindle said. 'But it makes me nervous having my bags searched without me being present, especially when inspectors are flipping things in my bags that don't belong to me. What would stop them from putting illegal drugs in my bag?'"

"One of the biggest discussions in the shooting world pertains to accuracy. Accuracy, like beauty, can be subjective. It depends a good bit of what the shooter thinks. A rifle that shoots 2-inch groups at 100 yards would be accurate to some shooters and absolutely abominable to others. The problem stems from the fact that there is no clear cut description of what accuracy really is. I’m not going to try to define accuracy, but in one sense of the word. it would mean putting all bullets in one hole that is no larger than the diameter of the bullets being fired."

"Believe it or not, down through the shooting years, several people have fired five shots at 100 yards that would be called absolutely zero. ..." ...

... "You may wonder what place this little story has in an outdoor column. The answer is, it jogged my memory back to the time (about 50 years ago) when I was a curious and somewhat know-it-all boy on my grandparents' farm, and was often in the company of my grandfather."

"Back in those days, a boy's most prized possession was a .22 rimfire rifle. To a 12-year-old a .22 has unlimited potential when it comes to dispatching corn-gobbling crows, hole-digging woodchucks and the occasional red fox."

"If I remember correctly my first .22 was a Winchester Model 67, a single shot bolt action with a cocking hammer that had to be pulled back after the round was chambered in order fire. Although I showed a definite disdain for most school book texts I was a voracious reader of outdoor magazines. In one magazine I came across an article that discussed how to sight in a .22." ...

"Leave it to the people in Leipers Fork to take a single event and make it into an annual occasion."

"Such is the third annual Leipers Fork Computer Shoot happening from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. tomorrow."

"Dubbed a Computer Anger Management Seminar, Leipers Fork style, this is a chance to take a load of frustration out on a computer of choice and get the opportunity to shoot an American tradition, the Tennessee Mountain Rifle."

"'This is where Old World technology meets New World technology and the Old World technology wins,' said Greg Murray, president of the Leipers Fork Merchants Association."

"For only $5 a shot, frustrated victims of technological advances like computers, cell phones and PalmPilots can get a quick lesson in computer anger management. For the really angry, or the more competitive, there will be a $10 target game. The winner will get a portion of the game’s pot." ...
