  • De Blasio jaywalks as he preaches road safety & HAs NYPD Arrest and Beat Others for Jaywalking

    De Blasio Jaywalking This Morning

     

    He talks the talk — but won’t walk the walk.

    Mayor de Blasio, who has been lecturing about pedestrian safety since he stepped foot in City Hall, strolled across a Brooklyn street against the light Friday in a blatant jaywalking violation.

    Hizzoner was gabbing on his old-school flip-phone as he slowly made his way across 11th Street on Sixth Avenue in Park Slope — and his NYPD detail faithfully jaywalked with him.

    A Post reporter caught the foot faux pas on video a day after de Blasio’s SUV was filmed blowing through two stop signs in Queens and twice going 15 mph over the speed limit.

  • San Diego Sheriff Will NOT Appeal 9th Circuits Ruling That CCW Be Granted To All Lawful Citizens

    Office of Media Relations Date: February 21, 2014

    San Diego Sheriff’s Decision

    Regarding Ninth Circuit’s Opinion on CCWs

    Today, San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore notified the County Board of Supervisors of his intention not to seek en banc review in the matter Peruta, et.al v. County of San Diego. A copy of Sheriff Gore’s letter to the Board of Supervisors is below.

    Members of the public wishing to obtain a CCW under the standards articulated by the Ninth Circuit should be aware that the decision has not yet become final. Federal court rules prescribe a period of time which must elapse before the case is remanded to the District Court for further proceedings. Should the decision of the Ninth Circuit become final, the Sheriff’s Department will begin to issue CCWs in situations where the applicant has met all other lawful qualifications and has requested a CCW for purposes of self-defense.

    Additionally, those seeking a CCW are advised that the process for obtaining a CCW involves several steps. The application process includes a scheduled interview, payment of fees, as well as state and local background checks. Successful completion of a firearms course of training is also required. This process can take several months.

    Dear Supervisors:

    On Thursday February 13, 2014, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals issued an opinion in the case of Peruta, et.al v. County of San Diego, et.al concluding that the State of California’s requirement of “good cause,” in cases where an applicant wants a firearm for personal protection, impermissibly infringes on the Second Amendment right to bear arms in lawful self-defense. In its opinion, the Ninth Circuit defined the issue on appeal as “whether a responsible, law-abiding citizen has a right under the Second Amendment to carry a firearm in public for self-defense.” In so doing, the Ninth Circuit took an exhaustive look at the history of jurisprudence surrounding the Second Amendment, and more specifically what it means to “bear arms.” It is clear, given the 2-1 split in this opinion, as well as the split among Federal Circuits across the Country, that there is no easy answer on which everyone will agree.

    The decision by the Ninth Circuit has found that the Second Amendment requires that states permit some form of firearm carry for self-defense outside the home. Additionally, the Ninth Circuit went on to emphasize that “nothing in our opinion should be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession ‘—or carriage—’ of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms.”

    Since becoming Sheriff, I have always maintained that it is the legislature’s responsibility to make the laws, and the judiciary’s responsibility to interpret them and their constitutionality. Law enforcement’s role is to uphold and enforce the law. The legislature certainly has the power to amend California’s firearm carry process, and the Ninth Circuit has the ability to bring its own motion to rehear the decision of the three member panel en banc. However, while the court’s decision clearly involves a question of exceptional importance, and conflicts with decisions of other United States Courts of Appeals, the opinion provides clear guidance in the context of issuing CCWs in California.

    Therefore, I see no need for me to petition for a hearing or rehearing en banc in order to be able to carry out my duties as Sheriff of San Diego County. As a result, I have advised the Office of County Counsel that I will not seek such a hearing.

    Should the decision of the Ninth Circuit become final, the Sheriff’s Department will begin to issue CCW’s in situations where the applicant has met all other lawful qualifications and has requested a CCW for purposes of self-defense.

  • Snowball Thrown at Officer Draws Felony for Texas Boy, 13, Outrage From Residents

    A day after a boy was arrested and charged with a felony for throwing a snowball at a police officer, students outside George Leland Elementary continued to build snowmen and throw snowballs at each other after school.

    According to police, a 13-year-old boy was charged as a juvenile with felony aggravated battery against a police officer Wednesday after he hit the officer in the arm with a snowball while the officer was parked in his vehicle in the 4900 block of West Congress Parkway about 3:20 p.m.

    Residents sounded off on the crime and punishment the next day, many describing the charge as police “going overboard.”

    “It’s not fair,” said Mary Grant, a longtime resident of the block. The boy “was being hardheaded, but that’s very harsh. The officer should’ve tried something different than arrest.”

  • Cops arrest jogging woman because she couldn’t hear them (Unaware Urban Fool)

    Members of the University of Texas-Austin community are outraged that cops arrested an unnamed jogger who ignored police orders because she was wearing earbuds and couldn’t hear them.

    The arrest happened at an intersection near the UT campus. Cops had been camped out at the intersection, issuing dozens of citations to people for jaywalking.

    They planned to ticket a jogging woman, and ordered her to stop. But she was wearing earbuds and couldn’t hear them.

    The officers chased the woman down and grabbed her arm from behind. Not knowing what was happening, the woman pulled away from the officer. This meant that she was resisting, and the woman soon found herself sitting on the ground in handcuffs.

    Local man Chris Quintero watched the incident from a coffee ship window, and was irritated by the police officers’ behavior. He snapped a picture of the woman during her arrest.

    “I was annoyed that the cops were kind of just hanging out on the corner giving citation after citation,” said Quintero in an interview with My Fox Austin. “She grabbed his arm and she shook him off.”


  • SAF PETITIONS US SUPREME COURT FOR REVIEW OF NEW YORK CCW FEE CASE

    The Second Amendment Foundation has filed a petition to the U.S. Supreme Court for review of its challenge to the exorbitant gun permit fees charged by the City of New York. The case is Kwong v. de Blasio.

    SAF is joined in the lawsuit – which was filed in 2011 against former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who has been replaced by current Mayor Bill de Blasio – by the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association and seven private citizens. They are represented by New York attorney David Jensen.

    The lawsuit challenges New York City’s $340 fee for a three-year handgun license, which is the highest such fee imposed for a gun possession license anywhere in the United States. SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb noted that the fee anywhere else in the entire state of New York is $10, but the city is exempted from that law, The city’s higher fee, he said, “discourages city residents from exercising their civil rights while violating the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.”

    “The fee structure discriminates against all but the wealthy and well-connected elites,” Gottlieb said. “This prohibitively high fee leaves average citizens defenseless due to their financial situation, but the right of self-defense and exercise of the Second Amendment should not be limited solely to those with deep pockets and fat wallets.”

    The federal district court and the Second Circuit Court of Appeals both sided with the city’s argument that the higher fee is allowable to recover costs and promote public safety.

    “This recurring fee constitutes a substantial burden on the exercise of a fundamental civil right,” Gottlieb stated. “Nowhere in the Constitution does it condition the exercise of a civil right on the amount of money one has in the bank.”


  • De Blasio caught speeding, running stop sign after traffic safety announcement! (Bloomturd II)

    Just days after Mayor Bill de Blasio announced an aggressive plan to prevent traffic deaths, CBS 2 cameras caught the driver of a car carrying the mayor violating a number of traffic laws.

    As CBS 2′s Marcia Kramer reported Thursday, the mayor’s two-car caravan was seen speeding, blowing through stop signs, and violating other traffic laws. Kramer reported that if the driver of the lead car, which carried the mayor in its passenger seat, would have racked up enough points to get his license suspended if he’d been ticketed.

    When the mayor announced his 62-point safe streets initiative, which includes lowering the speed limit to 25 mph, he said, “We want the public to know that we are holding ourselves to this standard.”

    But Kramer reported the mayor failed to practice what he preached Thursday.

  • Chairman of NY College’s Criminal Justice and Homeland Security Program Snorts Heroin & Dies!

    After taking four lines of heroin, SUNY Broome Community College professor Wesley Warren’s face turned pale, and he passed out on his basement couch.

    It was nearly 2 a.m. Feb. 9, and a friend who witnessed it dialed 911 after his own efforts to awaken the 49-year-old man proved unsuccessful. Emergency responders arrived at Warren’s home at 15 Jennifer Lane in Apalachin, and found him lying on his back. By 2:20 a.m., his death was confirmed.

    That account, provided to Tioga County Sheriff’s deputies by the man who witnessed the incident at Warren’s home, was included in police documents obtained by the Press & Sun-Bulletin through a Freedom of Information Law request.

    Warren, a professor of nearly eight years at SUNY Broome, had served as chairman of the college’s Criminal Justice and Homeland Security program. He was a former police officer and New York state-certified criminal investigator.

  • Round Up (Tens of Thousands of) Gun Registration Scofflaws, Rants Hartford Courant Editorial Board

    A bit of military wisdom has it that you should never give an order you know won’t be obeyed. Issuing such an order accomplishes nothing except to undermine your authority and expose the extent to which, no matter what enforcement mechanisms are in place, you rely upon voluntary compliance. But now that Connecticut’s resident class of politically employed cretins has awoken to the fact that, in their state, like everywhere else, people overwhelmingly disobey orders to register their weapons, they’re acting like this is a shocking revelation. They’re also promising to make those who tried to comply, but missed the deadline regret the effort (proving the point of the openly defiant). And the politicians’ enablers in the press are screaming for the prosecution of “scores of thousands” of state residents who, quite predictably, flipped the bird at the government.

    Three years ago, the Connecticut legislature estimated there were 372,000 rifles in the state of the sort that might be classified as “assault weapons,” and two million plus high-capacity magazines. Many more have been sold in the gun-buying boom since then. But by the close of registration at the end of 2013, state officials received around 50,000 applications for “assault weapon” registrations, and 38,000 applications for magazines.

    Some people actually tried to comply with the registration law, but missed the deadline. The state’s official position is that it will accept applications notarized on or before January 1, 2014 and postmarked by January 4. But, says Dora Schriro, Commissioner of the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection, in a letter to lawmakers, anybody sufficiently law-abiding but foolish enough to miss that slightly extended grace period will have to surrender or otherwise get rid of their guns.

  • Colorado sheriffs stand up, resist new restrictions on gun rights!

    Colorado sheriffs stand up, resist new restrictions on gun rights

    County sheriffs unhappy with gun control laws enacted in the Centennial State last year remain steadfast in undoing unenforceable and unconstitutional laws.

    “Technically every law enforcement agency in the state is committing a crime,” said Weld County Sheriff John B. Cooke, the first-named plaintiff in a federal lawsuit against Colorado Gov. John W. Hickenlooper, Jr., a Democrat,who was elected into office in 2010 with 51 percent of the vote.

    Under state law when one individual sells or loans a firearm to another, that “transfer” must be conducted through a Federal Firearms Licensee, said Cooke. “The deputies come on duty and are transferring weapons without a federal firearm license making it an illegal transfer.”

    In March lawmakers passed and the governor signed into law various gun-control measures that precipitated the federal lawsuit, he said.

  • Ohio Cop NOT Prosecuted for Masturbating with Pre-Teen Boy! (Police State Protects Their Own)

    A highway patrol trooper in Sandusky County, Ohio, will not face charges after allegations surfaced that he and a pre-teen boy masturbated together five years ago.

    Trooper Ricky Vitte Jr. told his wife “he did not want (the boy) to feel pressured on feeling the need to have to have sex with someone, when he can fix those needs by masturbating to porn,” according to a police report. The report says that on two separate occasions Vitte and the boy watched porn and masturbated in unison, with a dresser between them blocking their views of one another, the Sandusky Register reports.


  • Trenton man stabbed Saturday Night Dies (Ex-Girlfriend Stabs Him!)

     

    Dwelle Jerome Clark

    Dwelle Jerome Clark was stabbed in the stomach by his ex-girlfriend Edna White moments after he caught her rummaging through his mother’s handbag.

    “He said, ‘Stay out of my mom’s things,’” witness to the stabbing Omar Mills said Wednesday.

    According to Mills, after Clark, 55, uttered those words, White, 56, started hitting him with a walking cane. Clark then took the cane away from her, Mills said, and walked into his bedroom. White then grabbed a butcher knife from atop a dresser, followed Clark into his room and stabbed him in the abdomen, Mills said.

    “It was senseless,” Mills said. “There was blood all over the walls and all over the floor. It was everywhere.”

    The stabbing occurred late Saturday evening in the first block of Heil Avenue. Shortly after the stabbing, Clark was rushed to Capital Health Regional Medical Center. He died in the hospital Tuesday afternoon.

    According to family members, Clark and White have one child together, Cynthia White, who said she was not present during the stabbing. But Cynthia said her parents have a history of arguments.

  • Atlanta Teen Shot, Killed By Police Was Holding Wii Video Game Controller (Our Police at Work)

    The family attorney representing a 17-year-old boy who was shot and killed by a Euharlee police officer says that the boy was holding a video game controller when he was shot opening his door.

    Christopher Roupe was shot and killed on Friday when Euharlee officers showed up at the door of his home at 937 Euhar Lee Road, Lot 5, in Eagle View Mobile Home Park to serve a probation violation warrant for the boy’s father, WSB-TV reports. A female officer told the Georgia Bureau of Investigation that Roupe pointed a gun at her after he opened the door.

    But the family’s attorney, Cole Law, said the boy was holding a Nintendo Wii video game controller, and was about to watch a movie.

    “It just doesn’t add up,” Law told WSB. “We don’t know where that statement came from. The eyewitnesses on the scene clearly state that he had a Wii controller in his hand. He heard a knock at the door. He asked who it was, there was no response so he opened the door and upon opening the door he was immediately shot in the chest.”

  • CuHomo Proposes Turning Prisons Into College Campuses (NOT Satire)

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (credit: Getty Images)

     

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo is proposing to provide college classes in New York prisons, saying a college degree will reduce the likelihood an inmate will return to a life of crime when released.

    The program will offer associate and bachelor degree education at 10 prisons, one in each region of the state.

    Cuomo announced the program at a church service for the New York Association of Black and Puerto Rican Legislators conference Sunday morning alongside New York City mayor Bill de Blasio.

    According to a Cuomo news release, New York currently spends $60,000 per year on each prisoner, and it will cost approximately $5,000 per year to educate an inmate. It did not specify the cost of the overall program.

  • Post Office Latest Federal Agency to Ask for Large AMounts of Ammunition

    Post Office Latest Federal Agency to Ask for Ammunition

    The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) has posted a request to purchase “assorted small arms ammunition,” reports political analyst Michael Lotfi.

    The solicitation by the USPS was posted on FBO.gov, the federal government’s federal business opportunities website. The process is now underway to arrange for the purchase of guns and ammo for some undisclosed use by the post office.

    As Lotfi points out, it is curious that the postal service can afford to arm itself given their precarious financial position:

    The USPS has been posting $1-5 billion quarterly losses for years. In fiscal year (FY) 2012 alone the USPS lost a record $15.9 Billion. At it’s current rate of spending, the USPS is projected to hit $45 Billion in debt within the next three years.

    Of course, Obama administration officials probably care very little for the harsh economic realities. In fact, the USPS is just the latest federal agency to be the beneficiary of a billion-dollar weapons purchase.

    Although the exact amount of the USPS purchase is not made clear in its request, billions of taxpayer dollars have been spent by several federal agencies to buy several billion rounds of ammunition.

    As The New American has reported, for example, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has purchased over 27 billion bullets over the past year or so.

  • CuHomo’s Selective Anti-Gun Fervor: And This Is Why So Many Americans Have No Respect for Laws Or Lawmakers!

    Guns are a public menace! We must not permit lawless, reckless gun possession! Unless its a member of my staff, of course, in which case, meh, no biggie.

     

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has been the source of some of the most excessive anti-gun rants making up the sorry legacy of the Post Sandy Hook Ethics Train Wreck. It was a year ago that a unveiled a package of strict gun restrictions, saying that with “the senseless massacre in Newtown, Connecticut… New York must say enough is enough to gun violence.” Oh, Gov. Cuomo hates guns, believe you me.

    So what do you think happened when it was revealed that Jerome Hauer, Cuomo’s Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services Commissioner appointed in 2011, had not only been carrying a handgun to work ever since, but also, incredibly, took out the gun and used the laser sighting device attached to the barrel as a pointer in a presentation to a Swedish delegation on Oct. 24? Hauer was not only breaking the Cuomo-backed law barring state employees from packing a weapon at their workplace, but also was modeling the kind of ignorant and dangerous firearm misuse that undermines any claim that he was a safe, responsible, well-trained gun owner.
