Ferguson is the price we pay for turning America’s police into paramilitary units armed with the Pentagon’s surplus military gear leftover from decades of American militarism overseas.

The era of your friendly neighborhood lawman only out to “protect and serve” the community is over — if it ever existed at all.

Today, “protect and serve” would only be in reference to the State and its power, not the people.

Published on: August 14, 2014

As rioting rocks St. Louis, residents are exercising their Second Amendment rights and pouring into gun stores to acquire the firearms they need to protect themselves, their families, and their property.

According to CBS St. Louis, “Gun sales are up across St. Louis.” In fact, they have “quadrupled” at some area gun stores. Buyers are not simply the stereotypical white, male gun store customers. Instead, gun store owner Steve King described many of those pouring into his store–Metro Shooting–as “females, single mothers … black people, white people … [and] Asians.”

King said those purchasing firearms are “just afraid of what’s going on and they’re coming in to purchase either additional firearms or their first firearm.”

Marine sniper at center of viral video scandal found dead

Marine Cpl. Robert Richards, a medically retired combat veteran who was badly wounded in Afghanistan and later appeared in a controversial video urinating on dead Taliban insurgents, was found dead Wednesday night in his home in North Carolina. He was 28.

The death was confirmed Thursday morning by Guy Womack, a lawyer who represented Richards in his long legal battle with the Marine Corps after the video was published anonymously on YouTube in January 2012 and erupted into an international scandal. Womack said the death does not appear to have been a suicide, and the cause will not be known until an autopsy and toxicology tests are completed. His funeral will likely be held at Arlington National Cemetery, Womack said. The news was first reported by Marine Corps Times.

Richards’s life stands as an example of both the immense personal sacrifice and controversial nature of the Afghanistan war. He deployed there three times between 2008 and 2011, and was nearly killed by an improvised explosive device while on a foot patrol on March 19, 2010, in the district of Marjah in Helmand province. He sustained shrapnel wounds to his legs, arms, groin and throat, the latter of which required at least six surgeries to fix.

“Rob was a tenacious warrior who endured three combat deployments, losing brothers in all, and nearly giving his own life on one,” said former Capt. James Clement, who deployed with him in 2011 and also was disciplined as a result of the video’s release. “Despite grievous physical and emotional wounds, Rob never fled, and never surrendered.”

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s dollars have been defeated again, this time in Wisconsin. Despite Bloomberg dumping $150,000 into the Democrat primary for Milwaukee County Sheriff on behalf of anti-gun Milwaukee Police Lt. Chris Moews with a goal of defeating pro-self defense incumbent Sheriff David Clarke, Clarke was victorious last night. Clarke defeated Moews 52 percent to 48 percent. The race was called Wednesday morning after results were too close to call Tuesday night.

Brady Campaign loses lawsuit against Armslist (a gun classified ad site)

The decision is Vesely v. Armslist, LLC (7th Cir. Aug. 12, 2014). Here’s the Brady Campaign’s theory:

On April 13, 2011, Jitka Vesel, a 36-year-old immigrant from the Czech Republic was shot and killed by Demetry Smirnov, a Russian immigrant residing in Canada who had met Jitka online a few years earlier. Smirnov stalked her to her workplace parking lot where he shot her 11-12 times with a .40-caliber handgun….

The complaint alleges that [Smirnov] illegally purchased from a private seller whom he located through armslist.com, an online gun auction site owned by defendant Armslist, LLC. The complaint alleges that the website’s design facilitates illegal gun sales to unlawful gun buyers with no background checks and no questions asked, and encourages and enables users to evade laws that allow private sellers to sell firearms only to residents of their own state by enticing prospective buyers to search for and find gun sellers throughout all 50 states….

I argued when the lawsuit was filed that it was preempted by 47 U.S.C. § 230, which generally bars lawsuits against Web sites for material posted by their users. I still think that’s so, but the court didn’t reach that theory, because it concluded that the lawsuit was unfounded under Illinois tort law.

Black Teacher, Fired for Calling Students “Lazy Ni**ers” Wins Court Case Against School (Anti Pussification)

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A Duval County math teacher could soon go from fired to re-hired.

Joyce Quiller, 51, received a termination letter from the school district in February over allegations she led a profanity-laced classroom and called one student a “nigger”.

But a judge’s ruling last month said the Duval County School District violated the progressive discipline provision of Quiller’s contract with the teachers’ union that establishes a three-step system of punishment.

The 21-page ruling said Quiller should have been suspended without pay according to her contract.

Quiller’s attorney said she’s eager to get back into the classroom, but the big question now is whether the School Board will approve the recommendation by the judge and allow her back.

According to a January complaint, Quiller is a foul-mouthed math teacher who told students they were “stupid,” “ignorant,” and used other derogatory language.

After a series of student and parent complaints about her behavior, Quiller was fired in February.

One student claimed Quiller said, “You are all some lazy niggers for coming to class late.”

Black Teen “Knockout Games” a 72 Year Old West Village Resident (NYPD Refuses to Call it Knockout)

The suspect waited on Jane St. near West St. at 5:30 p.m. Monday before smacking the 72-year-old man in the face

The suspect waited on Jane St. near West St. before punching the 72-year-old man on Monday evening, leaving him with cuts and bruises on his face. The senior recalled seeing the teenager in front of him prior to the attack.

A gutless punk stalked and then slugged a 72-year-old man in New York’s West Village, knocking him to the ground with a brutal punch caught on video, police said Tuesday.

The apparent “knockout game” attack occurred Monday about 5:30 p.m.

The lanky suspect was seen standing on Jane St. near West St. when he reeled back and socked the senior as he approached, cops said.

He then ran across the street where a friend was waiting, police said.

The victim was taken to a local hospital with cuts and bruises to his face.

The victim told police that he was on his way home from a neighborhood deli when he was attacked.

The creep didn’t say anything before punching his victim, cops said.

The senior told police that he had seen the teen in front of him a few minutes earlier — leading investigators to believe that the youth had targeted him.

Cops would not say if this incident was a “knockout game” attack, in which people videotape themselves sucker-punching strangers and then post the footage online.

thumbMedia: ‘We’re Not Defending Hamas, But …’ (Video)

There has been a lot of throat-clearing by the media when it comes to the terror organization Hamas during the current Gaza conflict. Reporters and pundits criticizing Israel want you to know they are not defending Hamas.

Hamas has been designated a terrorist organization by the United States since 1997. It has the destruction of Israel as a charter goal, has employed suicide bombings and rocket attacks on Israeli civilians, and openly urged Gaza citizens to remain in their homes to serve as “human shields” against Israeli shelling.

So it’s strange that so many have had to qualify their comments on the fighting over the past month by insisting they’re not defending Hamas while they simultaneously bash Israel. Much of the coverage has focused on the deaths of Palestinian civilians and international outrage at Israel’s supposed responsibility for the conflict, while less has been devoted to condemning Hamas for starting the war in the first place through indiscriminate rocket attacks and the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli boys, and breaking multiple ceasefires by continuing to fire on Israeli civilians.

Democrat Federal Judge Rules AR-15′s Are “Dangerous and Unusual,” Not Protected by 2nd Amendment

Upon review of all the parties’ evidence, the court seriously doubts that the banned assault long guns are commonly possessed for lawful purposes, particularly self-defense in the home, which is at the core of the Second Amendment right, and is inclined to find the weapons fall outside Second Amendment protection as dangerous and unusual.

First, the court is not persuaded that assault weapons are commonly possessed based on the absolute number of those weapons owned by the public. Even accepting that there are 8.2 million assault weapons in the civilian gun stock, as the plaintiffs claim, assault weapons represent no more than 3% of the current civilian gun stock, and ownership of those weapons is highly concentrated in less than 1% of the U.S. population.

The court is also not persuaded by the plaintiffs’ claims that assault weapons are used infrequently in mass shootings and murders of law enforcement officers. The available statistics indicate that assault weapons are used disproportionately to their ownership in the general public and, furthermore, cause more injuries and more fatalities when they are used.

As for their claims that assault weapons are well-suited for self-defense, the plaintiffs proffer no evidence beyond their desire to possess assault weapons for self-defense in the home that they are in fact commonly used, or possessed, for that purpose.

Finally, despite the plaintiffs’ claims that they would like to use assault weapons for defensive purposes, assault weapons are military-style weapons designed for offensive use, and are equally, or possibly even more effective, in functioning and killing capacity as their fully automatic versions.

Marist poll shows Obama driving midterm vote to GOP (Thanks Bammy!)

Midterm elections usually end up as referendums on the current President, and sixth-year midterms especially so. Will that be the case in November with Barack Obama? According to a new poll from Marist and McClatchy, yes — and Democrats will not like the outcome. By a ten-point spread, Obama incentivizes voters to go Republican more than Democratic:

President Barack Obama is dragging down his party and hurting the prospects of fellow Democrats as they head into midterm elections that will determine who controls Congress, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll.

Obama is beset by problems at home and abroad. Just 40 percent of voters approve of the way he’s doing his job, tying his worst mark in three years and the second worst of his presidency.

Just 39 percent approve of the way he’s dealing with the economy and only 33 percent approve of how he’s dealing with foreign policy, the worst of his years in office.

By 42-32 percent, voters say their opinions of Obama make them more likely to vote this fall for a Republican than for a Democrat.

That’s actually twice the gap in the generic Congressional ballot, which stacks up 43/38 for Republicans — a very bad figure for Democrats. The GOP has gained 11 points in the gap since April, when Democrats led 48/42, which strongly suggests that the momentum has shifted in a big way as the general-election campaign season approaches. What’s more, it’s also pretty clear that no matter how poorly the GOP polls (only 22% approve of Republicans in Congress, as opposed to 32% for Democrats), the need to rebuke Barack Obama takes precedence for voters. Among independents, the GOP has a 14-point lead in the generic Congressional ballot, 40/26, and Obama makes independents likelier to vote for Republicans than Democrats by an almost 2:1 margin, 41/22.

Retarded Chicago police chief: Law-abiding gun owners corrupt, endanger public safety

Chicago police chief Garry McCarthy says law-abiding gun owners corrupt, endanger public safety

During Sunday’s pre-recorded edition of “Connected to Chicago,” Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said law-abiding gun owners who lobby elected officials through organizations like the NRA and the Illinois State Rifle Association (ISRA) are corrupt and endanger public safety.

“If there was special interests affecting police work, I believe that would be called corruption. So, if it has do with donating money versus a popular vote, I think we have a bigger problem in this country and somebody’s gotta wake up to that,” he said.

“Well, how is it that they’re controlling politicians. How are they controlling elected officials? It’s not by popular vote,” he said when asked how gun rights groups are corrupting public safety.

Libturd Media Revel in Republican Scandals, But Suppress Democrat Scandals

It is such common sense as to be undeniable that basic journalism requires a party label to be affixed to a story about an elected public official, the president excepted. It is the DNA of the “who” in a news report. “Senator Robert Byrd, the Democratic senator from West Virginia, died today.” Take out “Democratic” and try that sentence. It doesn’t work. “Mike Lee, GOP senator from Utah and God’s gift to mankind, coasted to reelection last night.” Ditto.

It follows that the rule applies to stories about political scandal, precisely because it’s just that — politics. But what happens when that cardinal rule is applied to one party but ignored for the other? Favoritism? Bias? No, it’s far worse than just that. It is a commitment to abide by the rules of journalism with one party and then a deliberate attempt to protect the other, even if it means violating the most basic rules of news reporting.

Now wait a minute, Bozell. What about another possibility? Why can’t it be an honest mistake? Cannot we believe that even if such an egregious violation is committed it might not just be an accident, a reckless, sloppy oversight? If it happened once, fine. Stunning but fine. Twice? I don’t believe in coincidences. The record, however, shows it is much worse than that.

On Friday, September 29, 2006, Representative Mark Foley of Florida resigned after ABC News exposed him for having sent explicit e-mails to male House pages. That evening and on the next day’s morning news shows, ABC, CBS, and NBC all tied Foley to the GOP. “This is more than just one man’s downfall,” Today co-host Matt Lauer solemnly declared on NBC. “It could be a major blow to the Republican party.”

On March 10, 2008, news broke that New York governor Eliot Spitzer had been linked to a prostitution ring. It took NBC News four nights to acknowledge Spitzer’s party affiliation. In its first two days of coverage, Matt Lauer’s Today show ran 18 segments on the scandal and never once identified him as a Democrat.

But what happens when a Republican elected official is linked to a prostitute? In July 2007, Senator David Vitter of Louisiana was revealed as a client in the phone records of the so-called D.C. Madam. Every broadcast network ran stories on the scandal and every story underscored that Vitter was a Republican.

Empire State Building Lights Up For DNC Despite Policy, Refuses Kids with Cancer

It’s no secret that New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio really, really wants the 2016 Democratic national Convention to be in his city. The mayor has been handing out iPads and personalized basketball jerseys to members of the DNC Site Selection Committee, in an effort to sway them into choosing the Big Apple as the host city for its 2016 nominating convention.

The Empire State Building, which is not run by the city government has decided to help the mayor in his goal and has announced that they will light the top of the famous skyscraper blue on Tuesday night, in order to convince the DNC to come to town. This despite the building’s own policy of not lighting the tower in support of “political figures and campaigns”:

“The Empire State Building also does not light for political figures and campaigns, for personal events such as birthdays, anniversaries or weddings, or for commercial events such as product launches.”

While the owners of the Empire State Building seem to be willing to bend the rules a bit for the Democratic Party, they decided to deny a formal request from the father of a child who recently died from brain cancer. Tony Stoddard had asked the building’s managers to light the tower gold for one night in order to raise awareness for pediatric cancer.

In a written statement the building’s managers claimed that they are “..unable to light for all who apply.”
