California Limits Full-Contact Youth Football Practices

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Gov. Jerry Brown announced Monday that he has signed a bill limiting full-contact football practices at middle and high schools in response to concerns about concussions, even as many teams already comply with the rules.

  Brown approved the bill, AB 2127, with the support of medical groups and the California Interscholastic Federation, which oversees California high school athletics.

  Assemblyman Ken Cooley, D-Rancho Cordova, said his bill is motivated by parents worried about the risks associated with concussions, which include long-term brain damage and early onset dementia.

  Under the legislation taking effect in 2015, drills involving game-speed tackling are prohibited in the offseason. They are limited to 90-minute sessions twice a week the rest of the year. The rules apply to public, private and charter schools.”

6 Cities React To Illegal Immigrants In Their Communities

” An influx of illegal and unaccompanied immigrant children from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador in U.S. border towns is causing the federal government to look elsewhere around the country to house them. But many Americans oppose the placement of illegal immigrants in their communities.”

Armed Suspects Fumble Jewelry Store Robbery In SE Fresno

 

 

 

 

 

 

” A surveillance camera records as the two young men try to rob Marlene’s jewelry store last Friday. In the video one man pulls a gun. At that moment the other man immediately gets on his phone. Looking nervous and scared the unarmed suspect tries to jump the counter, but misses. 

” It wasn’t very… planned out very well,” said Jose Llamas, the owner’s brother. 

  Llamas laughs about it now, but this was a scary ordeal for the family. As the men attempted the heist the owner and his daughter along with her newborn were in the back of the store. They heard their employee yelling that they were being held up. “

Feds Booed In California City After Standoff On Illegals

 

 

 

 

 

 

” An overflow crowd in a Southern California community where protesters turned back Homeland Security busloads of immigrants gave a harsh reception to federal officials behind the decision to bring them to Murrieta in the first place.

  Local politicians calling for secure borders proved far more popular with the crowd Wednesday night.

” Send them back! Send the back!” the special-meeting crowd chanted, shouting down Chief Border Patrol Agent Paul Beeson after he took responsibility for transferring the Central American children and families to Murrieta from Texas, where the numbers are too much for facilities to handle.

  On Tuesday, the buses were rerouted an hour south to San Diego after they were met with flag-waving protesters in Murrieta.

  The Wednesday night crowd, gathered at a high school auditorium that seats 750 in the desert city of 100,000 people, groaned when Beeson said four of the immigrants had to be hospitalized, two with scabies and two with fevers.

  And Beeson conceded that he did not know where Tuesday’s immigrants nor several more waves slated to arrive from Texas in coming days will end up.”

 

 

   Here’s an idea how we get can get the illegals out of our country: All we need to do is put a few guns on the buses and have them accidentally cross the Mexican border . That way the Mexican government can imprison them indefinitely just as they have done to our Marine , Andrew Tahmooressi .

California Gun Confiscation Bill Passes State Senate Committee

 

 

 

 

 

 

” AB 1014, known as the gun violence restraining order bill, is quickly moving through the state legislature. The bill would allow authorities to confiscate guns from individuals who have this new type of restraining order taken out against them using no more than the word of a 3rd party.

According to KFBK,

  In response to the recent streak of gun violence, the Senate Public Safety Committee has passed a bill that would temporarily take guns out of the hands of at-risk people.

  Assemblymember Democrats Nancy Skinner, Das Williams and Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson say AB 1014 would give law enforcement the ability to obtain a Gun Violence Restraining Order to temporarily limit a person’s access to firearms when there are warning signs of violence.”

California: 39 Woman Prisoners Were Sterilized Without Consent

 

 

 

 

” Physicians in California prisons illegally sterilized at least 39 women during an eight-year period, with cases recorded as late as 2011, according to a report put out last week by the state’s own auditing office.

  Cynthia Chandler, co-founder of the Oakland-based group Justice Now, which has been raising concerns about prison sterilization processes for years, said that the report’s release “feels like an incredible step and vindication for people who work toward challenging human rights abuses.”

  The audit found problems in 39 cases, which account for more than a quarter of the 144 women who underwent the sterilization procedure between fiscal years 2005-6 and 2012-13. In 27 of the cases, inmates’ physicians had failed to sign the necessary consent form detailing that the patients were mentally competent, had understood the lasting effects of the procedure, and that the required 30-day waiting period after initial inmate consent was given had passed. Eighteen cases potentially violated that required waiting period, which is intended to give female prisoners time to think about their decisions before their surgeries take place. In some cases there is even evidence that doctors falsified records, claiming that the waiting period had elapsed when it actually had not.”

Joe Cornell Finds Bag With $125k In Cash, Returns It

 

 

 

” A poor man who found $125,000 on the street says he decided to return the cash to make his family proud of him.

Joe Cornell, who said he only had $1 a day to spend on lunch, was working at a Salvation Army store in Fresno, California, when a bag fell from a Brinks security truck into the street in front of him.”

 

 

 

 

“I picked up the bag,” Cornell told the Fresno Bee . “I saw twenties and hundreds. The whole thing was full of money.

“I started crying and shaking. Everything was going through my mind — the good devil/bad devil thing. What to do? I have a grandbaby due any time, my fourth. I thought, ‘What would I want her to think of me?’ That made up my mind right there.”

Seven Dead, Seven Injured In Isla Vista ‘Mass Murder’ Shooting

 

 

 

 

 

 

” A lone gunman killed six people and injured seven more during a shooting rampage Friday night in Isla Vista that Sheriff Bill Brown called “the work of a madman.” The suspect was killed after firing on responding deputies, but it’s not clear if the fatal wound to his head was self-inflicted or the result of return fire.

  The seven injured victims are being treated at Santa Barbara Cottage hospital — some for gunshot wounds, others for trauma sustained when the suspect crashed his car as he was pursued — and one recently underwent surgery for life-threatening injuries.

  The names of the victims and the suspect have not been released. Brown, however, confirmed that written and video material left by 22-year-old Elliot Rodger of Calabasas in the hours and days leading up to the shooting is being reviewed as evidence in the massacre. “It appears to be connected,” he said.

  In a YouTube video titled “Elliot Rodger’s Retribution” and posted the day before the shooting, Rodger — a Santa Barbara City College Student and Isla Vista resident, according to his social media accounts — laments his life of “loneliness, rejection, and unfulfilled desires.” He blames women for throwing themselves at “obnoxious brutes” but rejecting him, “the supreme gentlemen.” “

Salinas Police Kill Man They Say Lunged With Shears

 

 

 

 

 

” Salinas police fatally shot a man armed with gardening shears midday Tuesday outside a Sanborn Road bakery, Cmdr. Vince Maiorana said.

  The officer-involved fatality is the second this month and the third for the year including the deaths of Osman Hernandez and Angel Ruiz, respectively. Last year, Salinas police killed one: Jose Ruiz, on Williams Road.

  Officers responded about noon Tuesday to a home on the 700 block of Elkington Avenue when a woman reported a man had jumped her backyard fence and attempted to attack her dog with scissors, Maiorana said.

  When officers encountered the man at the intersection of Sanborn and Del Monte Avenues, outside Delicia’s Bakery, he made no attempt to hide the shears, Maiorana said.

  Attempts at hailing the man in English and Spanish were unsuccessful, Maiorana said. Officers then unsuccessfully deployed a Taser as the man began waving the gardening shears in the air, he said.

” This individual pulled the gardening shears and actually attempted to attack the officers with the gardening shears,” Maiorana said. “In response, the officers, fearing for their personal safety, shot this individual, and this individual is now deceased.”

 

 

   The claim of “imminent threat” to the police officers is clearly disputed by the video . All we can see is a man making every effort to avoid the police . When did the cops lose their cojones ? What ever happened to the baton ? All the man had was a pair of gardening shears yet the cops felt the need to use deadly force ?

   There was no cop man enough to take out his ASP and give the suspect one good whack to the arm and disarm him ? We are a nation of cowards . Just when did we come to value personal safety over all else ?

Death Toll In Fiery Bus Crash Rises To 10; 5 Are High School Students

 

 

 

 

 

 

” The death toll in a head-on collision between a FedEx truck and a bus full of Los Angeles-area high school students rose to 10 early Friday, officials said.

  The victims included five students, three adult chaperons, the driver of the truck and the driver of the bus, a California Highway Patrol dispatcher told The Times.

  Shortly after 5:30 p.m. Thursday, the FedEx truck crossed the grassy median that separates Interstate 5 here and slammed into the bus packed with students en route to visit Humboldt State University, about 200 miles north of the crash site.

  The impact, which witnesses said sounded like a series of explosions, caused both vehicles to burst into flames. The fireball and towering black smoke were captured by the cellphone cameras of others in nearby cars.”

Common Core Debate Leads To Mom’s Suspension From Son’s School

 

 

Common Core Suspension

Click For Video

 

” As California prepares to adopt the new state educational standards known as Common Core this fall, more parents are speaking out against them. Now one local mom says she was suspended from her son’s school for doing so.

” I was outraged,” 12-year-old Christopher Duran said.

  The boy couldn’t believe it when he found out his mom had been suspended from Mark Twain Elementary School.

” Why would the principal sign a withdrawal of consent to my mom, and furthermore, why would she send the police to the house?” Christopher asked.

  That withdrawal of consent, delivered by a police officer, banned Christopher’s mom from school for 14 days. Last week when we asked the school district why, they told us Katherine Duran was disrupting the school.

” It appears went a little too far with regards to how she distributed information at school sites, distributing information to children directly,” Sacramento City Unified School District spokesperson Gabe Ross said last Thursday.

” To blame me and say that I had personally handed a child that information on school property during school hours and disrupting the school. No, none of that is true,” Christopher’s mom Katherine O’Neal Duran said.”

Concord Police Officer Suspected Of Stealing Pain Pills From Seniors Complex

” A Concord police officer has been placed on leave and faces charges of burglary and elder abuse for taking prescription drugs from residents at a seniors complex, prosecutors said Friday.

  Matthew Switzer, a 12-year veteran of the Concord Police Department who serves as a K-9 officer, is being held in lieu of $480,000 bail at the County Jail in Martinez. Switzer, who works with a German shepherd named Figo, is on paid administrative leave.

  During his first court appearance Friday afternoon, Switzer listened as Judge Bruce Mills read the charges: two counts of first-degree burglary, one count of second-degree burglary, one count of fraudulently obtaining prescription drugs and one count of elder abuse.

  Switzer’s attorney, Harry Stern, said Switzer is a “good officer” and “well respected.”

  He said Switzer had sustained a neck injury while on the job and suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder, which led to addiction. Stern did not say when Switzer was injured or what the stress stemmed from.”

 

 

 

     How is it that he is allowed to keep his job and his gun if he suffers from PTSD ? If our returning soldiers are to be cast in the light of incompetence by our “betters” in the political class and called a threat to society then surely a PTSD diagnosed cop poses just as much of a threat . Oh wait , the soldiers don’t have a union do they ? Never mind .

Bus Driver Taunts Crying Little Girl

 

 

 

” A Floresville Elementary School bus driver was caught on camera mocking a crying girl one day during the weeks leading up to spring break.

  Video obtained by the Defenders from inside bus No. 67 shows the driver, known to students as “Ms. Pat,” calling the young girl, “crybaby.”

  Then, a few seconds later, she invites the students to join in, chanting, “Ready? Cry, cry, cry!”

  Even though the majority of the bus is chiming in, the little girl can still be heard crying in the background.

” ‘I want my mama,’” Ms. Pat hollers, taunting the sobbing child.

  Monna Perez, whose children ride the same bus, was brought to tears watching the video.

” If you can’t bully at school, why are they allowing it on the bus?” Perez said.”

ATF Agents Ignore Restraining Order And Raid Ares Armor In California

 

 

Here is a video of the beginning of the illegal raid by ATF …

 

 

” Ares Armor was raided by ATF agents despite a restraining order issued by a federal judge last week. The National City, California gun parts stores is owned by Dimitri Karras. The former Marine refused to turn his AR-15 lower receiver customer list over to the federal government as demanded. Karras, said Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) agents wanted to investigate his more than 5,000 California customers who purchased gun parts from his store. “

 

 

And here is video of the fascists attempting to open the company’s safe …

 

 

” ATF agents threatened to close Ares Armor down if Karras did not turn over his customer list. The customers reportedly purchased a specific 80 percent lower receiver used to build an AR-15 rifle. The lower receiver serves as the base of the semi-automatic rifle. The Department of Justice and the ATF contend that “plastic” lower receivers (polymer not 3-D printed parts) in question are not legal because they do not have a serial number. Some gun owners who have purchased the polymer AR-15 lower receiver maintain the semi-automatic gun part does contain identifying numbers.”

 

 

Lastly we have video from NutNFancy that contains an interview with Ares owner Dimitri Karras …

 

 

” During the Saturday ATF raid on Ares Armor, the agent converged upon the store in full tactical gear and confiscated the AR-lower receivers. Just prior to the raid, both plain clothes and undercover ATF agents allegedly questioning customers outside of the California gun store.”

Cops Raid Gentlemen’s Club To Photograph Strippers For “Investigative Purposes”

 

Strip Club Raid

 

 

” Dancers at a gentlemen’s club felt harassed and uncomfortable when the establishment was raided by nearly a dozen police officers who demanded to take pictures of the women and examine their bodies and permits.

  The raid took place at Cheetahs Gentlemen’s Club on Thursday, March 6th.  The evening was disrupted when 10 armed officers swarmed the business to “conduct a random inspection” of the ladies inside.

  The 30 dancers were forced into the dressing room, where the police lined them up and photographed their nearly-naked bodies from every angle.

“ They made me feel like I was a gang member pretty much and they wanted to document every single one of my tattoos,” a dancer named Katelynn Delorie told ABC 10 News.”

The New USA? Secession Movement Gains Steam

 

 

 

 

” If you mention the word “secession” most people think of the South during the Civil War. But today, a new movement is gaining steam because of frustration over a growing, out-of-control federal government.

  A number of conservative, rural Americans are taking about seceding and creating their own states, meaning a new map of the United States of America could include the following:

  These are real movements gaining traction with voters across the country. Jeffrey Hare runs the 51st State Initiative in Colorado, an effort to fight an out-of-control legislature trying to ram big government policies down the throats of voters.

” We’re at this point of irreconcilable differences,” Hare told CBN News.

  Secessionist talk has filled town hall meetings and the divide discussed is not just ideological.

” It’s predominately left versus right, but it’s urban versus rural because you typically find more typical conservative values in rural America,” Hare said.”

 

   For more information on the burgeoning secessionist movement and links to the organizations leading the charge you can go to uniondissolved.com and see what is happening in all of the states . The depth and breadth of discontent may surprise you . Obama may turn out to have been quite prescient when he said …

 

 

    Wikipedia offers this list of U.S. state partition proposals which numbers 36 and includes current and past efforts , while this link to the Middlebury Institute provides links to secessionist movements most of which are aimed at creating independent republics as opposed to adding to the states of the US .

” This is a list of official or otherwise noteworthy proposals for dividing existing US states into multiple states. It does not specifically address statewide or other movements to secede from the United States. The word secession can refer to political separation at different levels of government organization, from city to state to country; this list focuses on secession from (rather than by) U.S. states, particularly to form new U.S. states.

  Article IV of the United States Constitution provides for the creation of new states of the Union, requiring that any such creation be approved by the legislature of the affected state(s), as well as the United States Congress.

  Since the adoption of the U.S. Constitution, four states have been created from parts of an existing state: Maine (from Massachusetts), West Virginia (from Virginia), Kentucky(also from Virginia), and Vermont (from New York and New Hampshire)—though New York’s claim to Vermont was weak, as it was asked for its consent and Vermont was essentially an independent republic until 1791.”

Drone Films Mega-Pod Dolphin Stampede Off California Coast

 

 

 

 

” A drone has filmed a huge dolphin stampede off the coast of California, with thousands of animals forming a mega-pod.

  Captain Dave Anderson from Capt. Dave’s Dolphin and Whale Safari sent the drone to capture the stampede and edited the footage into a five minute YouTube film.

  The film also shows three gray whales migrating down the coast and a newborn humpback whale snuggling alongside its mother in Maui.”

 

Capt Dave offers his own narration of the events :

 

” Captain Dave Anderson of Capt. Dave’s Dolphin and Whale Safari in Dana Point, California, at great personal risk, has recently filmed and edited a 5-minute video that contains some of the most beautiful, jaw-dropping, footage ever taken with a drone from the air of a huge mega-pod of thousands of common dolphins stampeding off Dana Point, California, three gray whales migrating together down the coast off San Clemente, California, and heartwarming close-ups hovering over a newborn Humpback whale calf snuggling and playing with its mom as an escort whale stands guard nearby, filmed recently in Maui.

  According to N.O.A.A. Southern California has the greatest density of dolphins in the world. We have pods up to 10,000 strong stretched out for miles like the wildebeests of Africa. Over 400,000 common dolphin alone. We also have the largest concentration of blue whales on earth.

  Capt. Dave explains, “This is the most beautiful and compelling five minute video I have ever put together. I learned so much about these whales and dolphins from this drone footage that it feels like I have entered a new dimension! I have not been this excited about a new technology since we built our underwater viewing pods on our whale watching boat. Drones are going to change how we view the animal world. Wow!”

  Capt. Dave had to film this off a small inflatable boat, launching and catching the quadcopter drone by hand where a miss could mean injury to him from the four propeller blades or loss of the drone. He actually lost one drone on takeoff when it nicked his small VHF radio antenna on the 14 foot rigid inflatable he was filming from and it went into the water. Alone six miles offshore Capt. Dave , without thinking , dove into the cold, late-January waters off Dana Point to retrieve the valuable footage taken on a flight a half hour earlier that morning. “I had my hat and glasses on, I was fully clothed with long-johns on to keep warm and my cell phone and wallet in my pocket,” Captain Dave explained. “It was a stupid move, but the copter started sinking so fast it was my only hope to get the amazing footage I had just shot”. Since then he has attached flotation to the skids, which would save the footage, but every flight over the water still risks the DJI Phantom 2 quadcopter with a small GoPro HERO3 Black camera on it, as the $1,700 rig is not waterproof and the skids will not keep it upright on the ocean.”
