” Two teenagers who attend Wylie East High School have been arrested and charged with the murder of a fellow classmate.
Garland police received a call around 9:38 p.m. Saturday regarding a suspicious vehicle near Highway 78, west of the Firewheel Mall.
Upon arrival, the two officers saw an unoccupied vehicle matching the call description. The officers then continue into a wooded area near where the unoccupied vehicle was located and saw two teen males running.
The officers returned to the suspect vehicle, waiting for the teens to possibly return to the car.
When the two teens approached the car, officers asked what they were doing. One of the teens replied “burying a body,” according to Wylie police.”
” The amount of debt globally has soared more than 40 percent to $100 trillion since the first signs of the financial crisis as governments borrowed to pull their economies out of recession and companies took advantage of record low interest rates, according to the Bank for International Settlements.
The $30 trillion increase from $70 trillion between mid-2007 and mid-2013 compares with a $3.86 trillion decline in the value of equities to $53.8 trillion in the same period, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The jump in debt as measured by the Basel, Switzerland-based BIS in its quarterly review is almost twice the U.S.’s gross domestic product.”
But we’ve been on an austerity budget you say … think again .
” Marketable U.S. government debt outstanding has surged to a record $12 trillion, up from $4.5 trillion at the end of 2007, according to U.S. Treasury data compiled by Bloomberg. Corporate bond sales globally jumped during the period, with issuance totaling more than $21 trillion, Bloomberg data show.”
Read the whole sorry article . We are being run into the ground by the very individuals charged with solving the problem . Apparently all of the major governments of the world believe as that sage of DC Joe Biden does that :
We are systematically being turned into debtor nations with the goal of making us all subservient to the State . This is the Road to Serfdom .
CPAC 2014 – More Guns, Less Crime: Law Enforcement is Embracing a Well-Armed Civilian Population

” The police have discovered that guns in the hands of law abiding Americans may be the best defense against guns in the hands of criminals.
Chris Cox (Executive Director, National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action) moderates the discussion with Emily Miller (Senior Opinion Editor, The Washington Times); David Clark (Sheriff of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin); and The Honorable Sandy Adams, former United States Representative for Florida at CPAC 2014 on March 8, 2014.

” Top administration officials have directed 21,000 border patrol officers to retreat whenever illegal immigrants throw rocks at them, and to avoid getting in front of foreign drug-smugglers’ vehicles as they head north with their drug shipments.
“ Agents shall not discharge firearms in response to thrown or hurled projectiles… agents should obtain a tactical advantage in these situations, such as seeking cover or distancing themselves,” said the instructions, issued Mar. 7, under the signature of Michael Fisher, chief of U.S. Border Patrol.
Agents were also directed to keep their weapons holstered when drug smugglers drive by.”
Read the rest of this absurdity here . We might as well disband the Border Patrol right now . What on earth do we need a law enforcement agency that cannot enforce the law for ? Only in Obamaworld . It’s all part of their Open Borders plan to create a permanent Democratic majority .

” The police chief in Detroit is telling his citizens do not be afraid to arm yourself and protect your property. “The message should be that people are going to protect themselves,” Police Chief James Craig said in an interview broadcast Friday. They’re tired, they’re afraid, and they have a right to protect themselves.”
” A burglary suspect was shot multiple times by the homeowner, according to the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Department.
Detective Jason Newman says about 2 p.m. Friday, Joseph F. Willis forced his way into a home along County Road 19 near the Kitts Hill area of Lawrence County.
Investigators say during the burglary, the homeowner was in the house and had a gun. He shot at Willis multiple times, hitting him in the cheek and stomach.
Willis left the house and crashed his car into a ditch about half a mile from the home. He was flown to Cabell Huntington Hospital.”
” An East Point man says he shot at the burglars he caught inside his home to protect his kids.
A total of five break-ins have been reported in the past month at the Landmark at Creekside Grand apartments on Redwine Road. Jason Bagley told Channel 2’s Liz Artz he “was hoping to be the guy to stop” the rash of break-ins.
Bagley showed Artz where burglars came in his home while he was asleep upstairs. “Lights off, my wife’s car was gone, someone was definitely watching us — not a good feeling,” Bagley said.
Bagley was home alone with his two daughters, an infant and a 2-year-old. “You can’t replace my kids. All I was thinking about was my kids’ protection,” he said. Bagley said he grabbed his Glock 19 and confronted the crooks.”
” The altercation began when the off-duty officer was working on his vehicle outside of his home. A 39 year old man was walking past with his dog when the dog defecated on the front lawn of the officers home. The two men exchanged words and the man and his dog left the area. However, the man later returned and got into a physical altercation with the off-duty officer.
At a point in the altercation, the 39 year old male pulled the officer’s hooded sweatshirt over the officer’s head while he continued to assault the officer. The officer then drew a pistol and shot the man in the thigh. The shooting victim was taken to Albert Einstein Medical Center where he was treated and released. The officer was taken to Jeanes Hospital for facial lacerations. He was later released.”
” Family members have been arguing that it was a clear case of self-defense when a Huntington Station man shot and killed an alleged home burglar.
But Youssef Abdel-Gawad has been charged with manslaughter, even though he said he was only trying to protect his family, WCBS 880 Long Island Bureau Chief Mike Xirinachs reported Tuesday.
The family hopes surveillance video will clear their son, CBS 2’s Jennifer McLogan reported.
“ It’s a sad situation,” said the defendant’s brother, Ramy Abdel-Gawad. “Video will show, you know, he was doing what anybody would do to protect his family.”
The Abdel-Gawads’ own surveillance cameras were rolling at the home, according to police, at the time of the incident back on Aug. 21 of last year.”
We assume that because the suspects were put to flight before the fatal shot that the LI police are maintaining that the danger was past and thus the situation did not merit the discharge of the shotgun . Ok . But if that be the case then shouldn’t all police be suspect whenever they shoot a fleeing suspect ?
According to the report , the DA doubts that the perp fired a shot but isn’t the presence of the gun reason enough for an act of self-defense ? Since when do the thugs have a right to the first shot for free ?
When we were younger there was a policy (unwritten or official ?) that police could only shoot in self-defense or in the face of imminent peril for others . That no longer seems to be the case as we read all the time of cops shooting at perps in flight . If it’s ok for them then why not for civilians defending their homes and families ?
Apparently the Supreme Court’s Tennessee v Gardner ruling in 1985 cleared the way for cops to shoot people in the back if the had committed a felony and if that is the justification for law enforcement , surely the civilian populace should be afforded the same rights , no ?

” Personnel records of a Euharlee police officer involved in a deadly shooting show that she was repeatedly reprimanded over her 10 years on the job in Acworth.
Gatny worked at the Acworth Police Department for 10 years prior to that and personnel records indicate that she was written up and suspended a number of times for various infractions.
In a timeline, her supervisors say she “refused to follow orders” on everything from filing paperwork to carrying her walkie talkie.”
” Other details:
Gatny was involved in four car accidents in two years.
In 2007, she reportedly “left her duty belt, along with her weapon..with a civilian employee” while she had her picture taken with someone.
In 2008, while confronting three suspects, she fired her service weapon. An internal investigation found the suspect was trying to remove his backpack. She was convinced he was going for a gun, but a fellow officer said he never thought the suspect was armed.Internal Affairs concluded she should not be punished because the initial call for service said the suspects could have been armed. “
This woman had a known history of insubordination and incompetence yet continued to be employed as a police officer . How many others are out there with her type of record and how many police departments are hiding and/or protecting these unqualified individuals ?
The “blue wall of silence” is deadly to the public yet it persists even when a fellow officer is willing to buck the system and speak the truth as in the 2008 shooting in which she was cleared by her peers as are most all of the police’s actions everywhere . Something needs to be changed in entity that is allowed to investigate and exonerate it’s own . Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
” Gatny was ultimately fired from the Acworth Police department for failure to report to work. She started requesting time off for medical reasons, but eventually used up not just vacation, but more than a month of family medical Leave. Her superiors said they could no longer hold her position open for her.
Records show Gatny tried to get disability, but the insurance company said her claim was “not medically supported.”
Even through a career of wrecked vehicles , shameful firearms handling , insubordination and repeated reprimands the officer was only fired because her superiors said they “could no longer hold her position open for her.” Sounds like the postal service … but with guns and dictatorial powers . Shame .
” Union City police said Pollard and other customers were eating inside the Waffle House off Jonesboro Road shortly before 2 a.m. when a man with a black bandana on his face and hood on his head stormed inside with a gun drawn.
” He was just pointing the gun back and forth,” Pollard said.
The robber wouldn’t know it until later, but Pollard and his childhood friend, Jonathan Sutton, who happens to be an Atlanta police officer, both had guns.
Sutton was off duty and didn’t fire, but Pollard did.
” I felt that not only my life, but everyone’s life was in danger. So I had to do what I had to do,” Pollard said. “
” The Internal Revenue Service will give documents and emails from former IRS official Lois Lerner to the House Ways and Means Committee, House Republicans announced Friday.
The news was released in a statement from committee Chairman Dave Camp, a Michigan Republican, who said the IRS was finally handing over the documents he requested months ago, as his committee continues its investigation into the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups.
” From the few Lerner documents we have received, we know that Washington, D.C., orchestrated the targeting of groups applying for tax-exempt status, surveillance of existing tax-exempt groups and formed the proposed 501(c)(4) rules designed to push conservative groups out of the public forum,” Camp said.
” The remaining documents are key to determining the level of wrong doing and deception committed by this agency,” he added. “

” Another Detroit homeowner has shot and killed a burglar, George Hunter reports.
It’s at least the fifth such incident in recent weeks.
Thursday’s shooting happened at about 12:30 p.m. when two men allegedly broke into a home on the 8200 block of Penrod on the city’s west side, Detroit Police Third Deputy Chief Rodney Johnson said.
“ The homeowner was able to retrieve his weapon, and fired hitting one of the burglars,” Johnson said. “He ran away and collapsed in the driveway. The other burglar was able to escape.”
His suspected accomplice, a man in his 20s, fled the scene and is still at-large.
In January, Detroit Police Chief James Craig said criminals would think twice if more citizens were armed.”
You can read the rest of the story here and read our posts on other recent instances of Detroit citizens fighting back here , here , and here . Chief Craig knows of what he speaks and the citizens seem to have taken his message to heart . Good for them and good for us all .
As the death toll for thugs rises at the hands of armed citizens it is worth noting that our homeowners and citizens seldom seem to miss their intended targets . It seems that every time we report on one of these incidents of self-defense , whether fatal or not , the civilians show remarkable restraint , fire just enough rounds to do the job , have a very high hit ratio , do not endanger innocent bystanders and don’t resort to the standard “spray and pray” tactics so commonly found among the shootings that involve the “professionals” . Just an observation …
” Former Valdosta Police Officer Michael Linger, 43, was indicted by a Lowndes County Grand Jury for two counts of Sexual Exploitation of Children.
The Valdosta Police Department Bureau of Investigations and Internal Affairs Investigators worked with Investigators from the District Attorney’s Office and ICE Agents during the investigation.
The investigation revealed that this conduct did not take place while Linger was on duty with the Valdosta Police Department. Linger, who was assigned to the Bureau of Patrol Services during his career with the police department, was immediately terminated from his employment as a Valdosta Police Officer on October 3, 2013.”
As we continue to compile cases of police illegality and corruption we have come across a common theme , that being the fact that no matter how heinous the crime a police officer is accused of there never seems to be a picture of the alleged perpetrator . Yet one more double standard regarding the different treatment under the law received by the “elites” and by the average citizen .
“ Seeking the truth is the obligation of this committee,” Issa said before announcing that he had no expectation that Lerner would answer his questions and adjourning the hearing.
Lerner invoked the Fifth Amendment on each question Issa asked about the agency’s targeting of conservative groups. The hearing lasted approximately fifteen minutes before Issa released Lerner.
Issa did not choose to hold Lerner in contempt of Congress on the floor of the hearing. It is unclear at this time if he will choose to pursue contempt charges.”
” A (Connecticut) state police trooper is facing drunken driving charges after crashing his police cruiser in Ashford last week, according to state police.

” The power of the internet knows no bounds. It is our most powerful weapon against corruption and has helped to shed light on the ones that wish to remain in the darkness.
The story below is another wonderful example of how the internet is helping to exonerate the innocent whilst bringing justice to the corrupt.
A man was assaulted by police and his video of the incident confiscated. He was then jailed for 10 days after false charges were brought against him.
A year later he received his phone back only to find that the files had been corrupted and the video unplayable.
Below is a newly released video from Mr “Baxter” purporting to document the tampering of his cell phone while in police custody . Mr “Baxter” has other files pertaining to the assault that are still corrupted and welcomes any assistance from the public in retrieving those files . The corrupted files are available for download here and you can read more of his plight at The Free Thought Project.
A Liveleak user has also managed to recover a substantial portion of the audio in which the officer can be heard telling the videographer to get the f**k out of here .
This entire episode seems somewhat suspicious as the videographer provides no details beyond the video . Following various links leads one to assume that this transpired in Oneida county in upstate NY and while the videos are posted on Youtube under the name of George Baxter on one video the videographer claims his name is Mark Lambridge .
The video offers a brief glimpse of the patrol car and it’s license plate but is too blurry for us to make out as is the view of the officer’s name tag and the license plates on a truck in the background . As much as we despise police abuse and want to help in combatting it , we cannot help but believe that we are not getting the whole story here . We reserve judgement for now and offer the reader what information that we could find . Decide for yourselves .
Cody Lee Williams - Wrongly Jailed For 35 Days
” A Clay County Sheriff’s Office detective has been suspended without pay for 10 days and reassigned to the agency’s patrol division following a disciplinary hearing held Tuesday. An internal investigation was launched earlier this month into how Det. Johnny Hawkins handled the arrest of a then 18-year-old Clay High student for sexual battery. The findings of that investigation culminated at a Feb. 25 internal hearing to determine how Cody Lee Williams, now 19, of Green Cove Springs was mistaken for Cody Raymond Williams, 18, of Jacksonville for an alleged 2012 sexual assault of a girl under age 12.
Despite the mix-up, Clay County Sheriff Rick Beseler said, to be fair, Hawkins has a good record with the CCSO, no prior disciplinary actions and has received many departmental commendations in his 26-year career with the department.
“In this case, however, he took shortcuts and didn’t do a thorough investigation,” Beseler said in a statement released Tuesday. “The result was an innocent man was accused of a terrible crime he didn’t commit.”
Following his Aug. 30, 2013 arrest, Cody Lee Williams spent what has been described as an unnecessary 35 days in the jail for the crime in which he was charged as an adult. A young girl told CCSO in 2013 that she had sex with Cody Williams “on or around” Halloween 2012. The girl then told police where he attended school without looking at a photo to verify the identity of the young man.”
10 days off for failure to do his job properly ? It’s not like his error resulted in the wrong change at the cash register , An innocent young man was forced to endure 35 days in prison because of the good detective’s “lapse” . We should be able to expect more from our “public servants” .
” A police chief is facing charges after an alleged confrontation with a man in a grocery store parking lot.
Cedar Grove Police Chief Aaron Roop, 31, has been charged with misdemeanor assault and misdemeanor brandishing.
According to the criminal complaint, on February 16, Roop confronted a man and two women in the parking lot of a grocery store in Smithers and told the man, “(Name) the next time you threaten my wife and child with a firearm, I will slice your throat and kill you.” “

” A flabbergasted Manhattan entrepreneur says he was ticketed for jogging too early in Central Park.
“ I just got a SUMMONS for running in Central Park at 430 am ‘before it opened.’ ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME NEW YORK CITY?” a furious Peter Shankman tweeted Thursday morning.
The founder of Help a Reporter Out and self-described “author, speaker, and worldwide connector,” was on the second mile of a 10-mile run through the green space at 4:30 a.m. when a police officer stopped him because the park is technically closed from 1 a.m. to 6 a.m.”
We always thought that New York was the “city that never sleeps” . While the Post article makes reference to the park “technically” being closed from 1am to 6am a visit to the Central Park website rules and regulations page offers no such rule . There is mention of restricted hours for driving on the Park roads but nothing about limits on pedestrian travel .
A separate NYC Parks & Recreation website does proscribe a 1am to 6am curfew but a casual observer who went online to the Central Park website would not be informed of that fact unless they clicked on the link to Parks & Recreation .
Regardless , in a city of 8 million people , many of whom keep hours that are not exactly your standard 9-5 employment one would think that they park would be available earlier than 6am and doesn’t $1000 seem a bit excessive ?
” A young man’s deteriorating health led the state of Alaska to assume full control of his medical care — against his own written will and the against the wishes of his family. Since last October he has been trapped in a hospital, isolated without visitors, on an extensive series of psychotropic drugs, in a condition that continues to diminish.”
” Bret Byron Bohn is a native Alaskan who loves hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, and most outdoor activities. He lived an exemplary life receiving many awards as a youth, became a member of the National Honor Society, and achieved the distinguished rank of Eagle Scout. He had recently graduated from a program in Aviation Technology.
At 26-years-old, Bohn worked as a field guide for hunters and outdoorsmen on expeditions in the Alaskan wilderness. While otherwise healthy and athletic, his only medical issue was the development of some nasal polyps which impeded his ability to smell. He had them surgically removed, but they grew back. He was prescribed Prednisone — a powerful steroid and immune suppressant — to attempt to regain his sense of smell.”
Brett is a grown man whose minor medical condition has resulted in him becoming a “hospital hostage” and ward of the State who’s parents have not even been able to see him since December . He is locked away in solitary confinement and refused contact with anyone , friends , family and supporters , all on the word of “Doctors” at Providence hospital .
Bear in mind that this has all come about because of doctor’s failure to properly treat some nasal polyps. The State has seen fit to imprison the man because of the incompetence of their own doctors .
” While on Predisone, he began suffering with the inability to sleep for a prolonged period. After a week of insomnia, his family took him to Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage. They hadn’t realized it at the time, but one of the listed side effects of Prednisone is sleep disturbances (insomnia).
Rather than take him off of the drug that was likely causing the sleep problem, doctors prescribed two more powerful drugs to supposedly calm him down and help him sleep. He was given Zolpidem(brand name Ambien) which treats insomnia, as well as Lorazepam (brand name Ativan) which treats anxiety, depression and insomnia.
After taking the prescribed combination of drugs at at home, Bohn had seizures — potentially because the drugs he took are known to cause seizures. His family took him back to the hospital, looking for answers, and he was given more drugs, and had more seizures. He was put into intensive care.”
” Doctors characterized his disgruntled, combative state — after weeks of insomnia — as a sign of mental illness, and that he was irrational and a threat to himself. Hospital staff put him into a psychiatric ward, physically forcing his compliance. They began administering psychiatric drugs, beginning with Haldol, which is used to treat schizophrenia.
After the disputes between doctors and parents over his medication, Providence portrayed Bohn’s family as interfering with his treatment and a threat to his well-being. They alleged that they were going to help him leave without being medically discharged, and that they did not have his best interests in mind in light of his supposedly life-threatening illness — which as of then remained undiagnosed. They alleged that his mother, Lorraine Phillips, wanted to physically harm her son, Bret.
His ability to have visitors was reduced to once per week. Phone calls were not allowed. He was effectively a prisoner on the 5th floor of Providence, and doctors were free to medicate him with impunity.”
The State has effectively rigged the game wherein they can do as they please and if the patient and/or loved ones become “combative” , as in showing any kind of support for their rights , the patient will be deemed “mentally incompetent” and thus imprisoned for “their own good” .
Read the rest of this story of the State/Medical cabal run amok here and please pass Brett’s story along . The only mention we have found of this heartrending fiasco in the MSM to date is this article from the NY Daily News . This practice of State sponsored kidnapping by the medical profession must be brought to a halt .
Here is contact information for Providence Alaska Medical Center should the reader be inclined to make their feelings known and here is detailed information on the hospital itself including , finances , specialties , capacities , etc .
