  • Girl, 11, shoots man attacking mother in southeast Oklahoma City

    Leonardo Henry, 25, to the hospital and will soon book him into the Oklahoma County jail. An 11-year-old girl in Okla City was called a hero by neighbors Wednesday after she used a handgun to shoot a man who was attacking her mother. Police said Henry broke into the house and began to attack Moreno until her daughter, Jayda Milsap, 11, shot Henry twice with a handgun. Henry tried to flee from the home after being shot and was found down the street, police said.

    An 11-year-old girl was called a hero by neighbors Wednesday after she used a handgun to shoot a man who was attacking her mother.

    About 4 a.m. Tuesday, Oklahoma City police were called to a home at 3308 SE 89 and found Brandy Moreno, who said she was stabbed by her ex-boyfriend, Leo Henry.

    Police said Henry broke into the house and began to attack Moreno until her daughter, Jayda Milsap, 11, shot Henry twice with a handgun. Henry tried to flee from the home after being shot and was found down the street, police said.

    Moreno and Henry were both taken to OU Medical Center in serious condition, EMSA spokeswoman Lara O’Leary said. Hospital officials later said they could not confirm or report on the condition of either person.

    Moreno’s neighbor, Carolyn Marsee, said she heard the shots fired by the girl early Wednesday.

    “I think she’s a hero,” Marsee said.

  • Dashboard video shows shooting of unarmed driver by cop

    An unarmed man shot by a South Carolina trooper during a traffic stop repeated one question through his anguished cries as he lay wounded, waiting for an ambulance: “Why did you shoot me?”

    Levar Jones’ painful groans and then-Trooper Sean Groubert’s reply — “Well you dove head first back into your car” — were captured by a dashboard camera in the trooper’s car.

    Groubert had stopped Jones on a seatbelt violation at a Columbia gas station and fired the shots moments after asking Jones for his license.

    Later on the recording, Jones said he was just reaching into his vehicle for his identification after the trooper pulled up without his siren on. What appears to be his wallet can be seen flying through the air as Groubert fires four shots within seconds after confronting Jones.

    Groubert’s lawyer, Barney Giese, said the shooting was justified because the trooper feared for his life and the safety of others. But prosecutors and Groubert’s boss disagreed.

    The 31-year-old officer was charged with felony assault and fired less than three weeks after the Sept. 4 traffic stop.

  • Limp Wristed Morons at NBC Offer Repulsive Advice on Appeasing Home Invaders

    Americans have a constitutional right to armed self-defense, but they have other choices as well. The University of Colorado, for example, last year offered the students it sought to disarm with statewide legislation other “crime prevention tactics.” Options for female students facing rapists included passive resistance,” biting, and self-degradation. According to one proponent of the bill to ban the lawful carrying of firearms on campuses, such threats are “why we have the whistles.”

    Along similar lines, NBC’s Today Show recently offered suggestions on how to deal with violent home invaders. Their basic advice: politely defer to the intruder, but if things really get out of hand, reach for the insect repellent.

    For the tips, the Today Show interviewed former NYPD detective Wallace Zeins, whose New York City pedigree was evident in his recommendations. First, Zeins instructed viewers to use their vehicles’ key fobs as a makeshift alarm. Following that, the former detective told the audience to keep a can of wasp spray in the bedroom to use as an improvised chemical weapon against a violent intruder. Further, the report suggested abandoning one’s home to the intruder as soon as possible. If captured by a violent home invader, Zeins’s advice was to comply with the attacker’s every wish, and to never lie to them.

    At no time did the report suggest that firearms were a viable option. Also unclear was whether Zeins himself has abandoned the firearms he carried as a police officer in favor of bug spray to protect his own home and family.

    The Today Show’s omission of firearms as a legitimate means of self-defense isn’t especially surprising, given NBC’s lengthy history of anti-gun bias. Nevertheless, while the defensive capabilities of firearms for home defense may continue to escape the attention of NBC’s producers, the legitimacy of this option has been recognized by far weightier institutions.

    The Supreme Court’s Heller decision noted one of the reasons D.C.’s handgun ban was unconstitutional was that “[t]he prohibition extend[ded] … to the home, where the need for defense of self, family, and property is most acute.” The Supreme Court’s opinion in McDonald reiterated this point. State legislatures have increasingly passed Castle Doctrine legislation to protect residents who employ armed self-defense from unjust prosecution and civil liability, amplifying a doctrine well-established in Anglo-American case law.

    Further, there is strong evidence that gun use is the most effective means to defend oneself from criminal attack. A 1988 study by Florida State Professor of Criminology Gary Kleck titled Crime Control Through the Private Use of Armed Force determined, “Victim resistance with guns is associated with lower rates of both victim injury and crime completion for robberies and assaults than any other victim action, including nonresistance.”

    Despite their best efforts, Today and Zeins inadvertently gave one sound piece of advice, when the former detective told viewers to treat home invaders “like royalty.” While he apparently meant that a victim should be as obsequious as possible to an assailant, liberty-loving Americans have a strong tradition of treating interloping monarchs to the business end of their rifles.

  • ISIS supporters urged to attack Times Square with pipe bombs

    Supporters of the Islamic State terror group are being urged to attack Times Square and other popular American tourist attractions with easily assembled homemade bombs, according to a disturbing report Tuesday.

    A message posted on an ISIS Web forum lists widely available ingredients needed to build a pipe bomb, and includes photos showing how to combine them into a deadly explosive device, Vocativ reported.

    The Arabic-language message cites Times Square — the scene of a failed car-bomb attack in 2010 by al Qaeda sympathizer Faisal Shahzad — and the Las Vegas Strip as prime targets, but also suggests striking sites in Texas and mass-transit stations across the country.

    The message is titled “To the Lone Wolves in America: How to Make a Bomb in Your Kitchen, to Create Scenes of Horror in Tourist Spots and Other Targets,” and was written three weeks ago.

  • NY Muslim Convicted of Trying to Help Islamic State Terrorist Organization

    Feds: Man supportive of 'terrorist' groups plotted to kill troops

    A Rochester, New York, man has been indicted on charges of trying to provide material support to the Islamic State militant group and attempting to murder U.S. soldiers, the U.S. Justice Department said on Tuesday.

    A federal grand jury in Rochester handed down a seven-count indictment against Mufid Elfgeeh, 30, following an investigation by the FBI’s Rochester Joint Terrorism Task Force, a Justice Department statement said.

    According to court records, Elfgeeh, beginning last year, tried to help three people – two of whom were cooperating with the FBI – to travel to Syria to fight for Islamic State, a Sunni militant group that has seized large areas of Iraq and Syria.

    “Elfgeeh also plotted to shoot and kill members of the United States military who had returned from Iraq,” authorities said. “As part of the plan to kill soldiers, Elfgeeh purchased two handguns equipped with firearm silencers and ammunition from a confidential source.”

    The FBI made the guns inoperable before the confidential source gave them to the suspect, the Justice Department statement said, adding Elfgeeh was in custody.

  • Armored Vehicle, Grenade Launchers At Disposal Of LA Police Force

    Los Angeles Unified School District police officials are considering whether they need the armored vehicle and grenade launchers they received from the U.S. military.

    The military hardware at the disposal of LAUSD police officers includes a 20-foot-long, 14-ton armored transport vehicles, much like the ones used to move Marines in Iraq combat zones. The armored vehicle is worth $733,000, and the school district’s police force got it from the government for free.

    How would LAUSD use such a vehicle?

    “For us? That vehicle would be used for extraordinary circumstances,” LAUSD police Chief Steve Zipperman said.

    The armored vehicle, which is stored at a secret location, has been in the department’s possession since July.

    “It’s something that we believe is a life-saving vehicle,” Zipperman said. “And certainly we realize we need to take a look, is this the best alternative right now for us until we find something else that is more conducive to a police-type of rescue.”

  • Texas Police Prepare to Defend International Bridges From Militia Groups

    Authorities prepare to use “whatever force is necessary” to defend international bridges between Texas and Mexico from U.S. based militia groups. The preparations by Texas law enforcement agencies are in response to recently discovered plans by militia groups to attempt closing several international bridges. The militia groups’ plans are intended to be protests against the federal government’s failure to secure the border between the U.S. and Mexico. The plans call for militia groups to begin blocking traffic on an undisclosed number of international bridges in the Rio Grande Valley on Sept. 20th, 2014.

  • NY Democrats seek citizen rights for illegal immigrants

    NY Democrats seek citizen rights for illegal immigrants

    Illegal aliens in New York could score billions in Medicaid and college tuition money — along with driver’s licenses, voting rights and even the ability to run for office — if Democrats win control of the state Senate in November, The Post has learned.

    A little-known bill, dubbed “New York is Home,” would offer the most sweeping amnesty available anywhere in the country to nearly 3 million noncitizens living in the Empire State.

    It would bar police from releasing any information about them to the feds, unless it involves a criminal warrant unrelated to their immigration status.

    Under the proposed legislation, undocumented immigrants could also apply for professional licenses and serve on juries.

    The plan hinges on Democrats — who now control both the governorship and the state Assembly — wresting control of the Senate from Republicans, who oppose immigration amnesty.

  • Homeland Security Bulletin: Islamic State Can Attack U.S. Overseas With ‘Little to No Warning’

    HLS wrnng

    The Department of Homeland Security and FBI have put out a joint intelligence bulletin to all federal law enforcement that the Islamic State has the capability to mount attacks on U.S. targets overseas with “little to no warning.”

    While the bulletin, obtained by TheBlaze, states that the FBI and DHS are unaware of any “specific, credible threats” against the U.S. homeland, they urge law enforcement to be vigilant about social media postings by Islamic State supporters within the U.S. calling for attacks against America.

    The warning was dated Aug. 22, less than a month shy of the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks and as U.S. intelligence registered a spike in chatter from jihadi websites ahead of the anniversary.

  • Mysterious “Enterovirus D68” sickens more than a dozen in New York State

    More than a dozen cases of Enterovirus D68 have been confirmed in New York state, according to officials.

    “EV-D68 is causing cases of severe respiratory illness … sometimes resulting in hospitalization, especially among children with asthma,” the NYS Department of Health said in a statement Friday.

    Enteroviruses are quite common in September; the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates 10 to 15 million people are infected by these viruses each year. But doctors believe this particular type of enterovirus, Enterovirus D68, is causing more serious problems than others have in years past.

    As of September 11, more than 80 cases in six other states — Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky and Missouri — have been confirmed to be EV-D68, according to the CDC.

    New York is the first state in the Northeast with confirmed cases.

  • Palestinian Authority Unveils Memorial To 9/11 HIJACKERS (Satire…But True ;)

    Thirteen years after nearly 3,000 people were killed in Islamic terrorist attacks on US soil, a Palestinian monument has finally been set up to commemorate the event and to honor those who died piloting the aircraft involved.

    A forty-foot statue of a Boeing 767-200ER crashing into a skyscraper was unveiled this morning in the square amid fanfare and speeches by political and cultural figures calling for continued resistance to Western “colonialism.” A military band played nationalist songs in praise of martyrdom while sweets were distributed to children, and attendees held aloft banners in tribute to the 19 men, mostly Saudi nationals, who hijacked four airplanes and crashed three of them into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon. A fourth attempt was thwarted by passengers and that plane crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

    The base of the statue features a plaque with the names of the nineteen hijackers, after whom numerous children have been named in the Muslim world. When news of the attacks and resulting destruction reached the Palestinian territories in 2001, residents reacted jubilantly, as they saw the attacks as punishment for American policies in the Middle East. But in the intervening years Palestinian frustration has grown, as even such a fearsome blow to prominent symbols of American economic and military might produced no reduction in American support for Israel and no progress toward the defeat and destruction of Israel.

    The rush of satisfaction from the attacks, however, has served as a rallying point. Support for violent opposition to Israel, which many see as an extension of the US or vice versa, has remained high even as Palestinian leaders have oscillated between openly supporting terrorism and maintaining an official position opposed to violence but nevertheless tolerating it.

  • Patriot Militias Will Block Illegals From Crossing Using US Bridges (Useless Feds Pee Their Pants)

    Law enforcement officials and city leaders from across the Rio Grande Valley are preparing for what they say could result in tense moments or violence.

    Officials say they received word that members of a militia are threatening to block ports of entry.

    In Starr County, international bridge authorities met with Customs and Border Protection officials Thursday. Their goal was to discuss the potential problem and find a plan of action.

    Starr County has international bridges in Rio Grande City, Roma and Falcon Dam.

    Officials received word that members of a militia plan to protest illegal crossings by blocking traffic on Sept. 20.

    Rio Grande City Mayor Ruben Villarreal said members of the group have a right to express their opinion. His is concerned about the group’s intent, though.

    “What can we expect? I don’t know. The unknown becomes an issue that we really got to prepare for,” Villarreal said.

  • Missouri Senate Votes to Override Gov. Nixon’s Veto of Armed Teachers Bill

    On September 10, the Missouri Senate voted to override Governor Jay Nixon’s (D) veto of SB 656–the legislation to allow schools to train teachers to become “School Protection Officers” and carry guns with which to protect children on campus.

    SB 656 also allows people who possess a concealed carry permit (CCW) to openly carry firearms, and it lowers the legal age for a CCW from 21 to 19.

    The override passed by a margin of 23 to 8. A house vote is set for September 11, where the veto is expected to be overturned.

    Breitbart News previously reported that when Governor Nixon vetoed the legislation in July, he said, “Arming teachers will not make our schools safer.” But he did not explain how training teachers in firearms proficiency would fail to make schools safer than they are now.
