Alleged Threat Of Violence At Auburn University For April 16

 

 

auburn-threat

 

 

” A threat to “unleash a rampage of Biblical proportion” was found scrawled on a men’s room wall in the library of Auburn University on Tuesday night. The message said that the violence would occur on April 16, 2014, seven years to the day after the mass shooting at Virginia Tech, which took 33 lives.

  Campus officials have sent out an alert saying, “While no immediate threat has been substantiated, police presence has and will be increased in and around the campus of Auburn University.”

  According to The Plainsman, a student news outlet, pre-med student Caleb Mason found the message about three weeks ago in the Haley Center, and called police. Per their request, Mason sent a picture of the message. There was apparently some confusion about where exactly the threat was located, and Caleb didn’t hear anything back from authorities, until Tuesday night.

   If you need to report suspicious activity, contact the City of Auburn Police Department at (334) 501-3100 or call 911.”

Police Officer’s Son Charged In City’s Worst Mass Murder

 

 

 

 

 

” Like many local students, Matthew de Grood got off work Monday night and headed out to celebrate the end of the semester at the University of Calgary.

  But shortly after being welcomed into a Brentwood house party, de Grood would be strapped to a stretcher and under arrest, accused of fatally stabbing five others at the gathering — the worst mass killing in Calgary’s history.”

” Everybody is so shocked right now. I saw his picture. At first I thought, ‘Oh, my God, maybe he’s the one who got hurt. Then I read underneath. My heart just dropped,” said a former high school classmate of de Grood’s, who also knew him at U of C.

  The victims — Lawrence Hong, Josh Hunter, Kaitlin Perras, Zackariah Rathwell and Jordan Segura — were, by all accounts, celebrating like everyone else when they became the subjects of an unprovoked attack just after 1 a.m. Tuesday.

  Police Chief Rick Hanson said the victims were “targeted one by one” during a house party at 11 Butler Cres. N.W.”

N.Y. Search Warrant Case Shows Why We Need The Exclusionary Rule

 

 

210322_640x480

 

 

 

” The New York Post and the head of a New York City police union are upset that an accused drug dealer with a prior record may walk due to “a technicality.”

  Judge Jack Weinstein voided evidence against Shakeel “Blam” Wiggins last week because an NYPD cop didn’t properly fill out a search-warrant application that turned up the weapon as well as a handgun and a cocaine cache last September, court papers say.

  The ruling will likely allow Wiggins, a prior felon, to walk . . .

“ New York City police officers put their lives on the line to get these illegal weapons off the street,” Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association boss Patrick Lynch said of the ruling. “There are some technicalities — like if the premise is a single- or multiple-family dwelling — that are so insignificant that suppressing the evidence actually subverts justice and public safety.”

Lynch’s line of thinking is a direct reflection of the way law enforcement in general views the public and our rights.

” So what was that technicality? The cop who filled out the search warrant didn’t specify which unit in a multi-family housing unit was to be searched. Consequently, the cops raided the wrong residence, which caused them to kick down the door and terrorize an innocent family. Someone could have been killed. It’s happened before. Hell, it’s happened before in New York.

  The requirement that the location on a search warrant be specific isn’t “a technicality.” “

” Police said a knife-wielding robber was outgunned when he tried to rob homeowners on Monday.

  The 92-year-old World War II veteran and his 89-year-old wife were more than a handful for the alleged attacker.

  Investigators said Robert Kelly Jr. talked his way into a home in the 8800 block of Monsanto Drive, where he had previously done odd jobs.

  Ruby Mathis and Hugh Mathis said they thought they were helping someone who lives right in their neighborhood but it almost backfired.

“ He stuck the knife out there and said ‘Give me your money,’ and I said ‘You go to hell!’” Hugh Mathis said.

“ They were talking real low, and I came in to see what it was and when I did he was standing in front of Hugh with a knife saying, ‘Give me the money out of your pocket,’ so when I heard that I ran to the bedroom and got the gun,” Ruby Mathis said.”

” Pleasant Grove police made a grisly discovery Saturday: seven dead infants, six of them in cardboard boxes.

  Megan Huntsman, 39, was arrested early Sunday morning on suspicion of six counts of murder.

  Police believe she gave birth to the babies then killed them over the past decade, according to a police news release.”

Megan Huntsman

” On Saturday, police responded to a call from Huntsman’s ex-husband about a dead infant found inside a Pleasant Grove home that Huntsman lived in until 2011. Officers arrived and found the body of a newborn infant, who appeared to be full term, according to the release.

  Police obtained a search warrant for the home and found six more babies packaged in separate cardboard boxes inside the garage, said police Capt. Michael Roberts.

  Investigators learned that Huntsman allegedly gave birth to the infants, then killed them, over a 10 year period, the release adds. Her ex-husband is believed to be the father, but investigators are still working on DNA tests, Roberts said.”

    We guess that to the progressives out there this is ok , after all it’s nothing more than do-it-yourself abortion , right ?  Her body , her choice , what ?

Since Cuomo Won’t Fight Corruption, U.S. Attorney Must

 

 

 

preet-bharara

 

 

” In a move that should send chills down the spine of every crooked pol in Albany, hard-charging Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara has resolved to finish the work of the anti-corruption commission that Gov. Cuomo shuttered in an unsavory backroom deal with the Legislature.

  Happy hunting to Bharara, who must now do his darndest to salvage a sweeping Capitol fumigation that never should have been abandoned.

  Few people put elected thieves behind bars with the prowess of Bharara. It was, in fact, a flurry of indictments from his office early last year that helped prompt Cuomo to demand reform from the Legislature in the first place — and then to create the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption, a supposedly independent investigative panel, when lawmakers refused.

  The panel, crucially, was charged not only with probing outright fraud, but with exposing the routine, corrosive abuses of public trust that are standard practice in Albany while not clearly outside blurry legal lines.

  But last week, before the panel could finish the job or issue a final report, Cuomo abruptly pulled the plug in exchange for a handful of ethics reforms. Significant as some of those measures were, it was far too high a price to pay.”

   It’s good to someone in NY willing to dig into the pervasive corruption that is Albany , even if Cuomo won’t . Godspeed Sir we are sure that you will achieve much success as the NY political class is a target rich environment , and if there is any NY pol that is deserving of intense scrutiny from an outside party it is Sheldon Silver … as the article says , “Happy Hunting”

” The commission had also subpoenaed records of lawmakers’ murky outside income, including upwards of $500,000 that Assembly boss Sheldon Silver collects from a personal injury firm, and at least $250,000 that Senate chief Dean Skelos is paid by a Long Island firm that also happens to lobby the Legislature. “

Chicago Preacher James Meeks Dumps Dems, Backs GOP Gubernatorial Candidate

 

 

 

” The choir sang hallelujah as the congregation of 15,000 clapped and sang along. Reverend James Meeks ratcheted up the intensity of his speech. “Man looks at the outside,” he shouted rearing his head back. “But God looks at your heart! Are you with me here?”

  Judging by the response, Meeks had the faithful at Salem Baptist Church hanging on his every word.“One hundred percent with Reverend Meeks,” said parishioner Eugene Harris outside the mega-church on Chicago’s fiercely Democratic South Side.

  Meeks is careful not to preach politics from the pulpit. That doesn’t mean he does not have a political side. This former state senator is active as a leader in Chicago’s African-American community and also has considerable political clout.

  This gubernatorial election he is not throwing that clout behind the Democrat, incumbent Governor Pat Quinn. Instead, Meeks is lining up behind Bruce Rauner, the wealthy Republican businessman from Chicago’s predominantly-white North Shore.

“ The Democratic party just assume always that 97 percent of the African-American vote will go to the Democratic party. If that assumption is true, they never have to work for our vote,” Meeks said.”

Police Officer Indicted On 12 Felony Child Sex Charges

 

 

 

Published on Apr 12, 2014

” GOLDSBORO, N.C. – An 18-year Goldsboro police veteran has been charged with 12 felony sex offenses and subsequently fired from the police department.

  Chad Everette Calloway, 43, was fired by the Goldsboro Police Department on Jan. 10 following an investigation by the State Bureau of Investigation.

  On Monday, he was arrested and charged with statutory sexual offenses against a minor.

  According to the Wayne County Superior Court, Calloway was indicted on 12 felony sex offenses, including five counts of statutory rape/sex offense of a 13-, 14- or 15-year-old; four counts of indecent liberties with a child; and three counts of sex offense in a parental role.

  Calloway had been with the GPD since April 19, 1995. The highest rank he held prior to his firing was captain.

  The officer’s termination letter cited a GPD order stating that “officers and employees of the department are prohibited from engaging in any immoral or indecent conduct.”

  The letter further cited a city policy defining detrimental personal conduct as “behavior of such a serious detrimental nature that the functioning of the city may be or has been impaired” and “the laws of any government may be or have been violated.”

  Calloway was released from the Wayne County Detention Center on a $500,000 unsecured bond.”

NYPD Accused Of Excessive Force In Arrest That Left Teen A Quadriplegic

 

 

police_brutality

 

 

” Karen Fludd wants to know the truth about how her 17-year-old son became a quadriplegic and eventually died after NYPD officers stopped him for fare-beating one night last May.

  The Red Hook mother said she has received very little information about what transpired — but what she does know is her son’s version of events involves accusations of excessive force and widely diverges from the vague account police gave her.

  The police told her that on May 5, 2013, her son, Deion Fludd, was spotted squeezing through a turnstile at the Rockaway Avenue station in Brownsville with his girlfriend on a single MetroCard swipe. When officers approached them, Fludd ran onto the C train tracks, the teen’s mother said she was told by police.

  Karen Fludd, 48, said police told her that after her son ran, a subway train clipped him. The crash fractured his skull and left him with two spinal fractures.

  But before he died from his injuries on July 12, 2013, Deion gave his mother a blow-by-blow account that didn’t involve a subway train.

“ We asked him if he got hit by a train. He immediately said ‘no,’” Karen recalled her son telling her at Kings County Hospital, where he was treated for nearly two months. “He was very adamant that he did not get hit by a train.”

  Karen said Deion told her he did flee police when the officers tried to arrest him. He ran the length of the subway platform as officers followed him and then bounded onto the C line tracks, running to the platform at the next station at Ralph Avenue.

  There, an officer caught him and hit him on the back of the head with a flashlight, according to Deion’s account.

  Deion told his mom that officers then held him down with their feet on his back as he struggled until his voice suddenly stopped working.

“ They said, ‘Oh, you gonna be running? We are going to make sure your ass don’t run again,’” Deion recalled the officers telling him, according to Karen. “

IRS Under Fire: Vote For Obama Stickers, Campaign Cheerleading Commonplace

 

 

IRS Campaigns For Obama

 

 

 

” Even as the IRS faces growing heat over Lois G. Lerner and the tea party targeting scandal, a government watchdog said Wednesday it’s pursuing cases against three other tax agency employees and offices suspected of illegal political activity in support of President Obama and fellow Democrats.

  In one case the Office of Special Counsel, which investigates federal employees who conduct politics on government time, said it was “commonplace” in a Dallas IRS office for employees to have pro-Obama screensavers on their computers, and to have campaign-style buttons and stickers at their office.

  In another case, a worker at the tax agency’s customer help line urged taxpayers “to re-elect President Obama in 2012 by repeatedly reciting a chant based on the spelling of his last name,” the Office of Special Counsel said in a statement. OSC said it is seeking “significant disciplinary action” against that employee.
  Another IRS employee in Kentucky has agreed to serve a 14-day suspension for blasting Republicans in a conversation with a taxpayer.”

 

 

 

    A fourteen day suspension ? That’s a joke . Any Federal employee caught advocating for ANY candidate or policy on the taxpayer’s dime should be summarily fired … period … no ifs and or buts … FIRED .

 

 

 

They’re going to take women back 40 years,” the IRS employee said in a conversation that was recorded. The employee also said that “if you vote for a Republican, the rich are going to get richer and the poor are going to get poorer.”
  That employee went on to tell the taxpayer she knew she wasn’t supposed to be voicing her political opinions, and asked the taxpayer not to say anything.
  In the Dallas situation, the OSC issued a letter to employees reminding them they aren’t allowed to do anything that would appear to be campaigning.”

 

 

 

    The IRS debacle is the perfect example of why government needs to be kept to it’s absolute minimum if there is to be liberty for all . The Founders understood that and the hard-left progressives understand it as well . That is why they push for ever-more State power , because they realize that the State and it’s adherents (read: employees) will inevitably support MORE government . 

    So we are left with a State that is paid for by all the citizens , well all the tax-paying ones anyway , but that really serves the very narrow interests of the State itself and those that profit directly from it . Unless something is done about the IRS and the rest of these Federal agencies and power returned to the states where it belongs in a Republic we are doomed to sink under the weight of a biased system of administrative law and bureaucratic fiat .

Vermont: Gun Confiscation Provisions Tucked Inside Bill On Government Fees

” Buried inside a bill that would adjust fees for lottery ticket sales, returned checks and the use of the “Market Vermont” logo, is a budding requirement for police to confiscate, store for a fee and sell privately owned guns.

  The legislation, among its many regulatory tenets, would establish a framework for law enforcement to seize and store guns from those who are the subject of a restraining order.

“ We’re talking about folks who have been abusive to their partner or spouse, usually wife,” Gov. Peter Shumlin said at a news conference in Barre last week.

  Ostensibly designed to adjust certain judicial and executive fees inside the Vermont government, just six pages of the 31-page bill, H.735, deal with firearms. It is this section, however, that is drawing the most attention.”

   Guns.com has more on this latest sneaky effort by pols to confiscate guns . It’s a good thing women never make any false accusations against spurned lovers , or there might be people men persecuted by the State on heresay “evidence”. 

   While we realize that this bill does not explicitly push confiscation it does place an undue financial burden on citizens that have not been convicted of any offense merely on the suspicion that they might be used in a crime .

   We certainly do not wish any harm on women or any other domestic partners but if the State feels the need to take an individual’s guns without prior conviction then the State should be obligated to foot the bill for the safe storage of confiscated arms until it has attained a conviction .

    For an innocent man to have his guns taken by the State solely on the word of a disgruntled lover and be sent a bill for such storage even if found nit guilty at the end of the day is a penalty without a crime and and affront to due process .

How To Protect Yourself From The Heartbleed Bug

” An encryption flaw called the Heartbleed bug that has exposed a collection of popular websites — from Airbnb and Yahoo to NASA and OKCupid — could be one of the biggest security threats the Internet has ever seen. If you have logged into any of the affected sites over the past two years, your account information could be compromised, allowing cybercriminals to snap up your credit card information or steal your passwords.

  You’re likely either affected directly or indirectly by the bug, which was found by a member of Google‘s security team and a software firm named Codenomicon. The bad news: There’s not a lot you can do about it now. It’s the responsibility of Internet companies to update their servers to deal with Heartbleed, and once they do, you can take action (see below).

The issue involves network software called OpenSSL, which is an open-source set of libraries for encrypting online services. Secure websites — with “https” in the URL (“s” stands for secure) — make up 56% of websites, and nearly half of those sites were vulnerable to the bug. In theory, a cybercriminal could have exploited Heartbleed by making network requests that could piece together your sensitive data. The good news: There isn’t any indication that a hacker caught wind of this; it seems the researchers were the first to locate the problem.”

” A Moroccan man was busted for allegedly plotting to attack a school and a Connecticut federal building using remote-controlled toy planes packed with explosives.

  FBI agents arrested El Mehdi Semlali Fahti, 27, after a sting revealed his alleged plot, according to the Connecticut Post.

  The feds found wires and tools in Fahti’s Stamford home, the report said. It was not clear if he had any explosives there as well.

  He allegedly told an agent that he had studied the plan for months, that he had learned how to pack the explosives while he was a student in his home country, and that he would be able to obtain the materials at the Mexican border, the newspaper reported.

  He also said the plot would be funded through “secret accounts” that used laundered cash and drug-dealing profits.

   There’s no need to secure our border , nah , nothing bad can come from the unchecked illegal invasion of our southern border . Can’t we sue the Federal government for failure to do their PRIMARY job ?

Pakistani Baby Taken Into Hiding After Attempted Murder Charge

 

 

 

” Relatives of a nine-month old baby charged with attempted murder in Pakistan have taken him into hiding, one said on Tuesday, in a case that has thrown a spotlight on Pakistan’s dysfunctional criminal justice system.

  Baby Musa Khan appeared in court in the city of Lahore last week, charged with attempted murder along with his father and grandfather after a mob protesting against gas cuts and price increases stoned police and gas company workers trying to collect overdue bills.

” Police are vindictive. Now they are trying to settle the issue on personal grounds, that’s why I sent my grandson to Faisalabad for protection,” the baby’s grandfather, Muhammad Yasin, told Reuters, referring to a central Pakistani city.

  The baby is on bail and due to appear at the next hearing on April 12 but Yasin said he was not sure if he would take him to court for the case.”

Reuters has more on Musa’s flight and here is our original post on the arrest of the young “hoodlum” .

Video Catches Fort Gibson Officer Stabbed By Woman With Scissors

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Video caught a Fort Gibson police officer making a traffic stop, get stabbed by a woman walking by with a pair of scissors.

  Officers like Brent Maddocks say there’s no such thing as a routine traffic stop. Tuesday night, Maddocks stopped an SUV to check for an expired tag. He was going through the normal checks of the Jeep when the driver yelled at the officer.

” At first it just felt like somebody hit me,” Maddocks said.

  It turned out to be woman on a smoke break outside a nearby warehouse. The woman came up behind Maddocks with scissors, and he was forced to pull out his gun.” 

   The officer , showing remarkable restraint , courage and concern for the family in the stopped vehicle instead opted to deploy his Taser and subdued the crazed woman without resort to deadly force .

   Bravo Officer Maddocks you are to be commended for your refusal to escalate the violence even though that goes against the grain of your fellow boys in blue as WJR points out:  

” Many see his quick-thinking, which helped save his and other lives, as a positive conclusion to the incident – especially as accusations of excessive force by police officers seem to appear on a daily basis.

  Still, the conversation among officers themselves is largely divided.

  PoliceOne.com, which allows law enforcement professionals to opine on relevant issues, displayed dozens of comments – many of which chastised Maddocks for using less-than-lethal force.

Let’s hope some idiot wearing brass does not commend him for this and leads the public into believing this was hoe [sic] we handle such incidents,” one commenter wrote.

“ Not second guessing,” another stated, “but wish he had shot her. How long before she’s out of jail looking for her next opportunity to hurt or kill a cop.” “

   Statements like these just prove to the citizenry that the cops are to be feared , not respected . The culture of militancy being bred into our law enforcement personnel is going to turn out very badly for very many people .

  While the teacher and coach has been placed on leave, scores of students took to social media on Saturday to support him.

“ A deeply disturbing incident involving a teacher and student occurred in a classroom at Santa Monica High School, resulting in the Santa Monica Police Department being called to the campus. A number of videos capturing at least a portion of the incident are circulating, and I can tell you that what I witnessed on one of those videos is utterly alarming,” Lyon wrote.

  Lyon added, “Based on what I have viewed, the kind of physical restraint used by the teacher is unacceptable. I have placed the teacher on leave pending the outcome of an independent investigation.” “
