Boy’s Love Of Gospel Music May Have Saved His Life

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Earlier this month, police say a man kidnapped then nine-year-old Willie Myrick from his southwest Atlanta driveway. He allegedly drove the boy around for some time before dropping him off unharmed in East Point.

  But Willie’s actions during those terrifying three hours are inspiring people around the country. Willie says he sang the gospel song “Every Praise” until the man let him go.

  Thursday evening, community leaders held a meeting in Willie’s honor, celebrating his happy ending, but also telling other parents and children what to do if this happens to them.”

Reported Shooting A Hoax By Online Gamer

 

 

Long Beach SWAT Raid

 

 

 

” The action became very real for a 17-year-old Long Beach resident who was playing the video game Call of Duty on Tuesday, after a bitter online opponent called police and falsely claimed that the teen had fatally shot his mother and brother in his Laurelton Boulevard home.

  Long Beach Police Commissioner Michael Tangney said that the teenager had just won a round of the popular online multi-player shooter game. But when a losing rival claiming to be the teen called police to report the bogus incident, it prompted a massive responseincluding a fully armed Nassau County SWAT team with an armored vehicle and a helicopter unit — to what was initially believed to be a multiple shooting and hostage situation.

  Tangney said that when police arrived at the house at around 3 p.m., 17-year-old Long Beach High School student Rafael Castillo was still playing the game on Xbox while wearing a headset and had no idea what was happening outside.”

 

 

It was one mighty expensive hoax phone call …

 

 

 

 

 

 

” “He was quite stunned — he was very shaken up by it,” Tangney said, adding that the police response could cost roughly $100,000.

  More than 50 county, Long Beach and MTA police officers, and firefighters responded to the home. Nearby streets were blocked off as numerous police vehicles rushed to scene. The standoff lasted more than an hour and attracted crowds of onlookers who milled about, saying that they learned about the incident on social media.”

Russian Teen Plunges To Her Death Attempting To Take A Daring Selfie

 

 

Xenia Ignatyeva

 

 

 

 

” A 17-year-old named Xenia Ignatyeva fell 30 feet to her death from a railway bridge in the Krasnogvardeysky district of Saint Petersburg, Russia. Following a new trend that has Russian youths climbing any tall structure they can to snap a victorious selfie at the top, Ignatyeva had hoped for a nighttime shot with the train tracks stretching away behind her. According to her devastated grandmother, Olga, she wanted “the most dramatic effect.”

  As Ignatyeva lost her balance, she frantically grabbed a live wire that sent 1,500 volts of electricity coursing through her body.”

Teen ‘Lucky’ To Be Alive After Stowing Away On Calif.-Hawaii Flight

 

Stowaway

 

 

” A 16-year-old boy from California hopped a fence at the San Jose, Calif., Airport and sneaked into the wheel well of a Hawaiian Airlines jetliner, stowing away for a five-hour flight, FBI spokesman Tom Simon told ABC News.

  Simon said the boy, who had run away from home, passed out inside the unprotected, unpressurized wheel well after the flight was airborne. When the plane landed at Maui Airport at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, the boy was still passed out, Simon said. He did not come to for about an hour.

  Ground crews later saw the boy walking around the tarmac, Simon said. He was taken into custody and checked by a doctor and found to have no injuries.

  News of the incident was met with suspicion and scrutiny. Most wheel-well stowaways don’t survive, falling victim to frigid temperatures and lack of oxygen. The chances of survival of a wheel-well stowaway on a commercial aircraft are about 24 percent, according to the Federal Aviation Administration’s Civil Aerospace Medical Institute.”

Over 1,200 High School Seniors Sign Petition Against Michelle Obama Speaking At Their Graduation

 

 

US Presiden Barack Obama attends event aimed at expanding college opportunity

 

 

 

” According to DailyMail, “Taylor Gifford, 18, started an online petition on Thursday with over 1,200 signatures asking that Michelle Obama not speak at Topeka High School graduation… Some students feel that the speech would overshadow student accomplishments and others feel limited seating will be a problem.”

  The students are worried Michelle’s speech would overshadow their accomplishments and also limit the seating for their friends and family. But see, what these high schoolers fail to realize is that EVERYTHING is about the Obamas. That’s why the President tweeted a picture of himself to celebrate the anniversary of Rosa Parks refusing to give up her seat on the bus. That’s why the President’s gift to Queen Elizabeth was an ipod pre-loaded with his speeches and photos of his inauguration. That’s why the President spent a three-day government shutdown posing for a portrait. That’s why Michelle goes on her constant vacations and hosts extravagant dinners on the taxpayer’s dime. That’s why the President showed up 30 minutes late and alone to dinner with Putin and other world leaders to discuss Syria. That’s why the President took a “selfie” at Nelson Mandela’s funeral. That’s why the President went to Vegas on the day when news broke about the attack in Benghazi. The list is unending. They aren’t leaders. They’re narcissists.”

Twins, 7, Attack Carjacker With Fists And Rubber Snake

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” A car thief was forced to pull over after a couple miles in the stolen vehicle because twin boys, age 7, who were in the car attacked him, police said.

“ One of the boys was punching the man in the face; the other was hitting him with a rubber snake,” Sgt. Javier Salazar of the San Antonio Police Department told ABC News.

  The car was swiped from in front of the home of Lucia Lozada Thursday as the mother was standing just feet from the vehicle. Her twin sons and a 1-year-old were buckled into the car as the family readied to go to church. The father had gone back into the house to get the baby a bottle.

“ Lucia saw the man before he took the car,” said Herminia Segovia, the children’s grandmother. “She recognized him from around the neighborhood and even waved to him. Before she could do anything he jumped into the car and drove away.” “

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” .

11-Year-Old Building Tree Fort Says Officer Pulled Gun On Him, Friends

 

 

TREE HOUSE BOY

 

 

 

” A fifth-grader says he was terrified when a police officer pointed a gun at him and his friends while they built a tree fort.
 
  Omari Grant, 11, said he and his friends often play in a wooded area behind his home and were building a fort when a neighbor in the next subdivision called police to complain about what the boys were doing. 
 
  But no one anticipated what Omari and his mother say happened next. 
 
” I guess the release of tension was like, ‘Mom, he had a gun in my face, Mommy. Mommy, he had a gun in my face,’” said Janice Baptiste, Omari’s mother. 

  Omari told Diamant that two officers, one with his gun drawn, rolled up on him and a few of his friends as they built a fort in the trees behind his home.
 
” I was thinking that I don’t want to be shot today, so I just listened to what they said,” Omari said. 
 
  Omari said the officer holding his gun also used foul language and made him and his friends lay down on the ground.
 
” I learned that they’re supposed to help you not make you feel scared to even come outside,” Omari said. “

Confederate Flag Controversy

 

 

Greg Vied Confederate Flag

 

 

 

” Greg Vied is a 17 year-old Puerto Rican high school student on a quest for his first amendment rights, but he’s doing it by strapping a big red and blue Confederate Battle Flag that says “redneck” to his blue pickup truck.

  Vied also has the words “redneck Cadillac” written on the back of the truck, and on the front side of the truck it says “hate me yet?”

  Vied said he’s had the flag up on his truck since he got it back in January, but it’s only caused a problem for him at school over the past week.

  You see, Vied originally got suspended, but then the school got a letter from the ACLU advocating that they should uphold Vied’s first amendments rights, and so the suspension ended.

“ They said that it was offending some people, but they didn’t tell me who it was offending or how many people were offended and I told them that I still wasn’t gonna take it down. It was my first amendment right to have the flag up and I was gonna keep it up until I graduate,” Vied explained.

  Greg’s mom, Lisa Martinez, confirms that this is not a case of bigotry.

We’re not bigoted at all in this house. I’m gay. His sister’s gay. I’m Puerto Rican,” she said.”

 

 

     If the First Amendment doesn’t protect “offensive” speech then it protects nothing . Bravo to this young man who , as a child of Puerto Rican descent , makes a much tougher target to demonize by the forces of the PC thought police  . Good luck to him . 

    Check the Constitution and Bill Of Rights , no place in it does it grant ANYONE the right not to be offended .

6-Year-Old Boy Is A SEAL For A Day At Missouri Training Center

 

 

 

 

 

” Mason Rudder peppered bullets from a fully automatic M4 rifle into a car, charged through a field while firing an AR-15, and helped build and set off a wall bomb that blew the door off a building.

  Though Mason is no war hero, he got to feel like one Sunday. He is 6 years old and dreams of joining the Navy SEALs.”

 

 

MASON RUDDER SEAL

 

 

” Mason’s parents, George and Suzanne Rudder, former St. Louis County residents who now live near Kansas City, surprised Mason for his birthday by driving across the state to a tactical training center near Farmington, Mo., to shoot and train with a former member of the Navy SEALs.

“ He didn’t know until today,” said Suzanne Rudder, 36. “I think he was just stunned when we got here.”

  Mason was born with a genetic disorder (Escobar syndrome) that causes limited movement and a decreased range of motion, his parents say. Mason is about 3½ feet tall and weighs just 32 pounds. Mason’s sister, Haley, 7, also has the disorder; their brother, Collin, 9, does not.”

Officer Tells Texas Man Openly Carrying Rifle He’s ‘Free to Go’ – It’s Hard To Believe What Happened Just Two Minutes Later

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” A San Antonio man was reportedly arrested while openly carrying his rifle while on a walk near his home on Monday. The incident, which was video recorded by the gun owner, started out as a calm and reasonable conversation but ended dramatically with cops tasing the man before they put him in handcuffs.

“ I’m not doing anything wrong, sir,” Vichique replies to the command.

  One of the officers then claimed they received complaints that he was “pointing” his rifle at people. Vichique denied pointing his gun at anyone and informed officers that his rifle was loaded.

  After several minutes of chatting between Vichique and a reasonable-sounding officer, it seemed as if the situation would be diffused and the gun owner would be sent on his way.

“ You are not under arrest. You are free to go,” the cop says in the video. “You’re just going to happen to walk home, and I’m just going to happen to make sure you get home safely — and as soon as you get home safely, you will never see us again.”

  Then the situation took an unexpected turn.

  A short time later, another officer inserted himself into the situation and took a more aggressive approach. A few minutes before the more assertive officer arrived, another officer can be heard confirming that the “sarg” was on his way.

“ We are going to take that gun off your shoulder, do you understand that?” the officer is heard saying. “Do you understand that?” “

Obama’s Top-And-Bottom Coalition Shows Signs Of Strain

 

 

obama-coalition

 

 

 

” America’s two major political parties are inevitably coalitions, forced by the winner-take-all Electoral College and the need of candidates in single-member congressional districts to amass 50 percent of the vote, or nearly that, to win election.

  In a nation of America’s cultural variety, that means holding together groups that have different priorities and conflicting positions on issues.

  So coalitions don’t last forever, and change composition over time. John Kennedy’s Democratic coalition united white Southerners and northern Catholics. Half a century later, Republican Mitt Romney carried white Southerners and white Catholics by wide margins.

  Barack Obama’s Democratic Party is a top-and-bottom coalition, with affluent gentry liberals and blacks, single women, recent Hispanic immigrants and young voters — all groups of little political heft in Kennedy’s day.

  Now in the sixth year of the Obama presidency, with his job approval stuck below 50 percent, there are signs of strain. And choices made earlier, when Democrats held congressional supermajorities, are starting to prove troublesome.

  One choice was to not bring forward immigration legislation that would provide a path to legalization for immigrants in the country unlawfully. This was a top priority for the Hispanic Caucus, but Obama and Democratic congressional leaders chose not to advance an issue that would cost them the support of some Democrats and require Republican votes.”

 Team Obama’s Bizarre Efforts To Make Obamacare Cool

 

 

 

     In the Obama gang’s Herculean efforts to salvage their namesake they have: called kids “knuckleheads” (Michelle) , said that “Americans were too stupid to use the internet” (Dingy Harry Reid) , said that a scraped knee would cost “thousands of dollars in the emergency room” (Valerie Jarrett) , it will cost “less than your monthly cell phone bill” (Obama) , less than a “pair of gym shoes” (Michelle) , told us “it is all about choice and opportunity and freedom” (Crazy Joe Biden) among other bald-faced lies . 

   All of these lies have been put forth by the various parties during a media saturation campaign facilitated by the likes of Saturday Night Live , The View , Pop Sugar , Telemundo , C-SPAN , Ellen , Funny or Die , Jimmy Fallon , not to mention endless free proselytizing by the mainstream “news” organizations and yet the people still know the truth … we’ve been screwed over in a big way .  

   Yet they wonder why all of their insults , cajoling and lies haven’t managed to persuade us of the wisdom of our “betters” . Such sheer volume of chutzpah , condescension and deceit has seldom been displayed to the voters by the ruling class in this country .

    This video is a best of the lies compilation that must be seen to be believed .

” A Baytown, Texas, teen recently saw a police car parked in a fire lane near her apartment complex and wrote the officer a ticket.

” He was parked on the side of the building. It said it was a fire lane all the way around,” 14 year-old Annie Jones told KPRC-TV.

  Officer Tommy King found the ticket on his windshield and started laughing.

  Jones’ ticket asked King to pay $10 to the apartment manager. He was so impressed that Jones didn’t ask for the money to be paid to herself, that the officer paid the manager and gave Jones a $40 gift certificate to Toys ‘R Us.

” I have a new friend. I think the lesson is not to be afraid of law enforcement, we’re here to help,” King told KPRC-TV.”

Twerking Your Way Through College

 

 

Miley Cyrus "Bangerz Tour" - Tour Opener - Vancouver, BC

 

 

 

” Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs has a new academic discipline for America’s scholars:

  The course, called The Sociology of Miley Cyrus: Race, Class, Gender and Media, is a 251-level special topics course taught by Visiting Assistant Professor of Sociology Carolyn Chernoff. The professor encourages students to look past the colon in her course title and see what the class is really about.

In the photograph at right, it’s actually not that difficult to see past the colon.

  Skidmore junior Layla Lakos, a sociology/philosophy major, first heard about the new Miley course on Facebook. Lakos laughed, but was intrigued all the same.

” You can study a lot of things based on Miley,” she said. “She represents how transient wealth and fame can be, and shows how possible it is to change your image.”

  One of the easiest ways to understand how transient wealth is is to invest a six-figure sum in Twerk State University. The Atlantic reports on “the least valuable colleges and majors in America“:

  The self-reported earnings of art majors from Murray State are so low that after two decades, a typical high school grad will have out-earned them by nearly $200,000. “

 

~ Since we’re talking about The Atlantic, a few years ago, back when I was the magazine’s obituarist, a New Hampshire neighbor of mine called me up and said they were considering mortgaging the family homestead because their daughter wanted to go to Columbia Journalism School. Her ambition was to be an editor at The Atlantic and, as I wrote for the magazine, they thought I might have some useful advice for her. I don’t have a degree from Columbia Journalism School or even Murray State University; I don’t have a high-school diploma. Apparently, that’s fine if you want to write a column for the magazine, but to copy-edit the same column, and to correct any Canadian spellings I may have slipped in, your parents need to mortgage the home your family’s lived in for the last two-and-a-quarter centuries.”

U.Va. Student Sues State, ABC Agents For $40 Million

 

 

Elizabeth Daly

 

 

 

” A University of Virginia student charged last year with assaulting ABC agents attempting to stop her for underage possession beer that turned out to be sparkling water has filed a $40 million lawsuit against the state and seven agents.

  Instead of beer, a friend of Elizabeth K. Daly, now 21, had purchased a case of canned water from a Charlottesville grocery. Daly said she was terrified when plainclothes agents surrounded her car and banged on the windows ordering her to roll them down.

  After one agent drew a gun and another jumped on the car hood, she said she panicked, unsure they were really agents, and fled the scene in her car, grazing two of the agents. The charges were later dropped, and her record was expunged.”

 

 

   Regular readers may recall our post on this incident from July of last year in which her passenger’s call to 911 can be heard . Six unidentified armed men swarmed the young woman’s car over an alleged case of beer , surely in these times of busted municipal and state budgets there are better things for law enforcement to be spending their time on than scaring the crap out of a college student over sparkling water .

   Read the rest here and hope the State has to pay through the nose for their idiocy and arrogance .
