” Houston police have arrested a man in the abduction of a 6-year-old girl who escaped after going into a Target store and alerting a customer that she was kidnapped.
Police say 23-year-old Joaquin Ramos was captured early Thursday and is charged with kidnapping.
Investigators say the child, identified as Kelly Tellez, did not appear harmed during the harrowing one-hour ordeal, which played out Wednesday afternoon when she was snatched from her apartment complex.”

” Would you be surprised to learn that this intelligence comes not from a shadowy whistle-blower but from the FBI itself – specifically, from a document obtained from Houston FBI office last December, as part of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed by the Washington, DC-based Partnership for Civil Justice Fund?
To repeat: this comes from the FBI itself. The question, then, is: What did the FBI do about it?
Remember the Occupy Movement? The peaceful crowds that camped out in the center of a number of cities in the fall of 2011, calling for some recognition by local, state and federal authorities that our democratic system was out of whack, controlled by corporate interests, and in need of immediate repair?
This story dates back a few months but if you are like us you probably never heard about it .
” That movement swept the US beginning in mid-September 2011. When, in early October, the movement came to Houston, Texas, law enforcement officials and the city’s banking and oil industry executives freaked out perhaps even more so than they did in some other cities. The push-back took the form of violent assaults by police on Occupy activists, federal and local surveillance of people seen as organizers, infiltration by police provocateurs—and, as crazy as it sounds, some kind of plot to assassinate the “leaders” of this non-violent and leaderless movement.
But don’t take our word for it. Here’s what the document obtained from the Houston FBI, said:
An identified [DELETED] as of October planned to engage in sniper attacks against protestors (sic) in Houston, Texas if deemed necessary. An identified [DELETED] had received intelligence that indicated the protesters in New York and Seattle planned similar protests in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio and Austin, Texas. [DELETED] planned to gather intelligence against the leaders of the protest groups and obtain photographs, then formulate a plan to kill the leadership via suppressed sniper rifles. (Note: protests continued throughout the weekend with approximately 6000 persons in NYC. ‘Occupy Wall Street’ protests have spread to about half of all states in the US, over a dozen European and Asian cities, including protests in Cleveland (10/6-8/11) at Willard Park which was initially attended by hundreds of protesters.) “

” A woman shot and killed a man at a Houston gas station.
Not only was the incident recorded on the gas station’s security camera — the woman also captured it on her own cellphone.
The unidentified female got a .22-cal rifle out of the back of her truck and threateningly pointed it at the victim, 58-year-old Louis Daniel, before shooting. The man only had a pocketknife and umbrella.”
” A home invasion Sunday in north Houston ended with two suspects dead and another on the loose.
It happened around 4:40pm at Oak Leaf Village Apartments in the 100 block of Dyna Drive near Chipman Lane.
Lile Pena was overcome with emotion as she described the scene inside her home. Pena says she was there with her husband, four children and their uncle when it all began.
According to Houston police, three armed men broke into the apartment.
Not even his mother’s warm embrace could stop tears from rolling down seven-year-old Fernando’s face as he recalled what happened.
“I was scared because I thought my dad was going to die,” he said.
Fernando’s eyewitness account of what happened to his family has been helpful to investigators as they piece the scene together.”
” Investigators said that George Ramirez, 27, was walking home from a nightclub when he was approached by four to five armed men who opened fire on him.
Ramirez was also armed and fired back at the suspects, police said. Ramirez was hit once in the back, but was able to kill one of the suspects and wound another.”
” The man accused of hitting and killing a Harris County sheriff’s deputy while driving drunk was in the country illegally, a judge said in court overnight.
Andres Munos-Munos, 23, was charged with intoxication manslaughter in the death of Sgt. Dwayne Polk.
According to the Houston Police Department, Munos-Munos allegedly ran a red light on Little York at N. Shepherd and hit Polk’s personal truck shortly after 3 a.m. Sunday. HPD said there were no skid marks to indicate Munos-Munos even attempted to stop prior to the crash.”
Second ‘House Of Horrors’ Abortion Clinic Where Doctor ‘Twisted Heads Off Fetus’ Necks With His Bare Hands’ Is Investigated In Texas
” A second ‘house of horrors’ abortion clinic is being investigated in Texas, just days after Dr Kermit Gosnells was found guilty of murdering newborns at his Philadelphia termination center.
Dr. Douglas Karpen, seen here in court, is accused of killing babies aborted in their third trimester
Houston doctor Douglas Karpen is accused by four former employees of delivering live fetuses during third-trimester abortions and killing them by either snipping their spinal cord, stabbing a surgical instrument into their heads or ‘twisting their heads off their necks with his own bare hands’.
Other times the fetus was so big he would have to pull it out of the womb in pieces, Karpen’s ex-assistant, Deborah Edge, said in an Operation Rescue video, which has prompted a criminal investigation into the doctor.
‘Sometimes he couldn’t get the fetus out… he would yank pieces – piece by piece – when they were oversize,’ Edge explained.
‘And I’m talking about the whole floor dirty. I’m talking about me drenched in blood.’
Two of Edge’s colleagues, Gigi Aguliar, and Krystal Rodriguez, also described the hellish scenes which took place at the Aaron Women’s Clinic in Houston in 2011, and possibly two other abortion clinics run by Karpen in Texas.”

” A 3 on 1 fight is not very fair, but when those 3 are dumb as rocks and decide to lock someone in a closet, it evens the odds when that closet is the place where the dad keeps his guns.
Houston police said that today 3 men forced their way into a man’s house and put his son in a closet while they ransacked the place.
Little did the 3 criminals realize that this closet was the same place where the resident kept his guns. When he thought the men were gone the son grabbed a gun and went downstairs where he had an encounter with one of the intruders.
The intruder was armed and the 2 exchanged gun shots. The son was not injured but he was able to land 2 shots in the suspects leg and shoulder.”

” To accompany TheBlaze’s coverage of the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting in Houston, we figured it could be helpful to share some gun statistics pointed out to us by some of the NRA Convention attendees. Forget the talking points used by both sides in the gun control debate; we’re going to be talking about verified statistics.
Gun control advocates be advised, these are not the statistics you are looking for.
According to data from the FBI’s uniform crime reports, California had the highest number of gun murders in 2011 with 1,220 — which makes up 68 percent of all murders in the state that year and equates to 3.25 murders per 100,000 people.
In 2011, Utah, the state that the Brady Campaign determined had the least gun control, experienced just 26 gun murders and a firearms murder rate of 0.97. Utah has a population 2.8 million.”

Fifty four year-old Mary Walker from McAllen, Texas has been a member of the NRA for ten years. She owns 1 gun, a 9mm Glock and works as a teacher.
” Photographer Justin Sullivan attended the National Rifle Association Convention in Houston, Texas and took this set of portraits of NRA members. Each photograph has beneath it a short caption saying where they are from, what they do and how many guns they own. “
Lots more here
” Guns.com is at the NRA convention in Houston, Texas, this weekend and we ran into the Armed Citizen Project, a group that seeks to provide means of self defense for residents in high risk neighborhoods, one shotgun at a time. Check out their project at armedcitizenproject.com.”
” At the National Rifle Association’s convention in Houston, TX, NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre announced that the NRA has now grown to an unprecedented 5 million active members. He concluded his speech with the theme of all the NRA officers, vowing, “From liberty’s defense, we will never back down. We will never surrender. We will always stand. We will always fight.”
Well over 70,000 members of the NRA are assembled in Houston, Texas for its 142ndAnnual Meeting—projected to break the all-time record for the nation’s oldest and largest Constitutional rights organization. The convention houses over 300,000 square feet of exhibits (mostly firearms and accessories), seminars on various topics including women’s and children’s safety, and formal speeches from national political leaders and the NRA’s leadership. The central focus on the annual convention—as always—is protecting the Constitution’s Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
With 5 million members in its ranks and growing, that promise from the NRA’s leadership is likely to continue to be felt. Look for the NRA to engage its increased political strength in the 2014 midterm elections.”

We include this moment from the 2000 NRA convention … just because !
” Fresh off a huge victory over President Barack Obama on gun control, the message from the National Rifle Association is clear: The fight has just begun.
The powerful gun rights lobby gathers in Houston this weekend for its annual convention and organizers anticipate a rollicking, Texas-sized party — both to celebrate the victory in Washington and recharge the troops for more political struggles as gun control advocates tally their own successes in states around the country.
“If you are an NRA member, you deserve to be proud,” Wayne LaPierre, the NRA’s brash, no-compromises chief executive wrote last week to the organization’s 5 million members, telling them they “exemplify everything that’s good and right about America.”
The NRA couldn’t have picked a friendlier place to stage its annual event. More than 70,000 people are expected to attend the three-day “Stand and Fight”-themed event, which includes a gun trade show, political rally and strategy meeting.”

” A student who told police he’d fantasized for years about stabbing people to death was charged Tuesday with carrying out a building-to-building attack at a Texas community college that wounded at least 14 people, many of whom were stabbed in the face and neck, authorities said.
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that 20-year-old Dylan Quick used a razor-type knife, and that he told investigators he’d been planning the attack at the suburban Houston campus for some time. Two people remained in critical condition late Tuesday.
Pieces of the blade were found in at least one victim, according to the sheriff’s office. Broken blade pieces also were found in the area where the stabbing occurred on the Lone Star Community College campus in Cypress, and the handle was discovered in a backpack that Quick was carrying when he was arrested.”

” Multiple victims have been injured in a stabbing attack on the Lone Star College Cy-Fair campus, with one person taken into custody. Authorities now believe there was only one attacker.
The violence broke out at about 11:20am at the rear of the Health Sciences Building on the Cy-Fair campus on Barker Cypress Road. The Harris County Sheriff’s Department confirms 11 victims, and one suspect in custody. There had been reports of a second suspect, but HCSO now confirms they believe the suspect acted alone and they are ending the search for any further suspects.
James, a student at the school, told Eyewitness News he helped authorities take one person into custody. He says the suspect, who appeared to be a student, may be hearing impaired, and was armed with a knife similar to an exacto knife, that may be used in animal dissections.
James says he saw the suspect, dressed in black, emerge from the building at a run, and he gave chase. When tackled, the suspect reportedly said, ‘I give up, I give up.’ James adds that he saw several people bleeding, including some victims with neck wounds. They were tended to by medical crews.”

” “I see a young boy and I think it is a friend of my son so I open it a little bit,” the father explained. “These guys push and out comes two more, they push me on the ground.”
After the father was down, the suspects went after the mother. That is when the son ran and got his dad’s gun. He opened fire and hit one of the suspects, who died in the back bedroom. The other two suspects fled the scene.”

Operation Paul Revere Goes Viral
” While there have been bigger marlin landed commercially and by recreational anglers not in accordance with IGFA rules, pictured below are the leading big fish, officially speaking. These are the certified all-tackle world records for black, Atlantic and Pacific blue, striped and white marlin. They represent the ultimate benchmarks for anglers chasing the world’s biggest fish.”
Weight: 1560 pounds
Angler: Alfred Glassell, Jr.
Location: Cabo Blanco, Peru
Date: August 4, 1953
Notes: Glassel, Jr. of Houston boated this behemoth after a one hour and forty-five minute fight. The 174-inch fish fell for a mackerel trolled in the once-legendary Black Marlin Boulevard off Cabo Blanco.
