What It Looks Like When A 10-Year-Old Girl’s Gun Marksmanship Blows Away Competition

 

 

 

 

” Her name is Shyanne Roberts, and she’s a gunslinging 10-year-old from Franklinville, New Jersey, who’s just won a spot to compete as an adult in a big shooting competition.

  Shyanne will be competing against 200 women at the Lady 3 Gun Pro Am Challenge in Georgia at the end of the month. She’ll be handling a rifle, shot gun and hand gun in the competition.

  She told CNN she wants to use her skills to inspire other kids.

  I want to be an inspiration to other kids and be a leader. Kids and guns don’t always mean bad things happen.

  As you’ve probably figured out, Shyanne can skillfully handle all types of guns, including an AR 15 she built herself. “

New Jersey Man Accused Of Shooting Down Neighbor’s Remote Control Drone

 

 

 

” A New Jersey man was arrested after police say he shot down a neighbor’s remote control drone.

According to investigators, officers with the Lower Township Police Department were called to a home in the 1000 block of Seashore Road on September 26th to investigate the report by a resident that his remote control helicopter (drone) was shot down.

  Investigators say the resident was taking aerial photographs of his friend’s home, which is under construction.

  While doing so, the resident told police he heard several gunshots as he simultaneously lost control of the drone.

  After retrieving the drone, the resident observed multiple holes in it that were consistent with a shotgun blast.”

” There’s not much that can be agreed upon between the left and the right in America, unless of course we’re talking about people who park like idiots. We all run into them, and we all can’t stand them.

  Rather than just pass by someone he found parking like a jerk, Reddit user AnotherCJMajor decided he was going to get sweet revenge on the owner of a Corvette who thought they were entitled to two front row parking spaces. When he saw the man’s poor park job, CJMajor said he couldn’t resist the urge to do something about it.”

Monuments To Obama Raise Some Hackles

 

 

 

 

” Everything from streets to a parasitic hairworm have been named in honor of President Obama, but the effort to immortalize him is causing a backlash in one New Jersey town, whose elected leaders are reconsidering their vote to place the president’s name on a recreation center.

  The Willingboro council has scheduled a second vote on renaming a township building the Barack Obama Center amid complaints that its initial move was premature and unjustified.

  Mayor Eddie Campbell Jr. said the council’s first vote this month was rushed and that most residents in the overwhelmingly Democratic town oppose changing the building’s name from the current “John F. Kennedy Center.” “

Heavy Rain, Floods Swamp Mid-Atlantic, Northeast

 

 

 

 

” Drenching rain led to flash floods in the Washington and Baltimore metro areas Tuesday as a potent storm system slogged through the Mid-Atlantic.

  The heavy rain is forecast to pelt the Northeast and New England later on Tuesday and into Wednesday.

  A flash flood emergency was in effect for parts of the Baltimore area as of late afternoon.

  Several people were rescued from flooded cars and numerous roads were closed in the D.C. area, WUSA-TV reported. Roads are also closed in the Baltimore area.

  As of late afternoon, Baltimore had picked up 6.27 inches of rain, making this the city’s second-rainiest August day since records began in 1871. Photos on social media showed cars swamped in a parking lot at BWI airport.

  Some spots had picked up an estimated 10 inches of rain, the National Weather Service reported. “Numerous water rescues and road closures have been reported.” “

NJ Cops Arrest Gun Owner For “Creating A Risk Of Widespread Injury Or Damage

 

NJ cops unceremoniously relieve Robert Litner of his gun collection (courtesy nj.com)

 

 

“ Police on Saturday revealed the extent of the arsenal seized from a township resident and evident gun enthusiast, the day after they charged Robert Lintner, 65, with ‘creating a risk of widespread injury or damage,’” northjersey.com reports. I know what you’re thinking: how many guns equals an “arsenal” in New Jersey, a state whose gun laws are the dictionary definition of Second Amendment infringement. I won’t keep you in suspense. Or will I? . . .

  Saddle Brook Police Chief Robert Kugler said police removed approximately 300 pounds of black gun powder from the basement of Lintner’s home on Washington Street. With the assistance of the Bergen County Sheriff’s Department, they also removed nearly 200 long and short firearms from five large gun vaults in the home, Kugler said, adding that tens of thousands of rounds of ammunition were also taken.

“ Nearly” 200 guns = a New Jersey arsenal. Fair enough? Only the word “arsenal” implies something nefarious in this context, does it not? Google defines the word as “an array of resources available for a certain purpose.” In New Jersey, where the number of concealed carry permits is roughly equivalent to the number of Israeli supermodels I’ve dated, anyone who has more than, say, three guns is immediately suspected of being a gun nut (a.k.a., ticking time bomb).”

 

 

This incident only proves how calling the cops is never a good idea , even if your wife attempts to stab you …

 

 

” Lintner was taken to police headquarters shortly before 10 p.m. Friday, capping a day that had begun with a morning 911 call that his wife allegedly stabbed him in the neck during a domestic dispute. When police discovered the weapons and the ammunition stored at the house, they ordered an evacuation of the adjacent homes on Washington Street.

  His wife, Eileen Lintner, was charged with second-degree aggravated assault and illegal possession of a weapon, a knife, police said. She was released after posting $75,000 bail on condition she have no contact with her husband.”

N.J. Cop In Obama Rant Speaks Out And Resigns

 

 

 

 

 

” Richard Recine’s 36-year career as a police officer came crashing down this week after he was caught on camera saying police do not have to follow the Constitution because President Barack Obama doesn’t either.

  On Thursday, Recine — who had retired from the Franklin police force in 2006 and was working part time here as a special police officer — submitted his resignation.

” I don’t want to give a black eye to law enforcement,” Recine, 59, said Thursday in an exclusive interview with MyCentralJersey.com. “People are saying some really nasty stuff about cops. I don’t want all officers painted with the same brush.” “

SHOCK VIDEO: Cop Explains Why Police No Longer Follow The Constitution

 

 

 

 

” When Wronko went to the police department to voice his complaints about the violations of his Constitutional rights by this corrupt, nepotistic system, he was met with even more corruption.

 To which the corrupt Helmetta police officer replies, “Obama just decimated the freakin’ Constitution, so I don’t give a damn. If he doesn’t follow the Constitution, we don’t have to.”

  Let that set in for a minute. A cop, knowing that he was being filmed, just admitted to NOT following the law that he swore an oath to uphold.”

Someone Tried To Shame Her Body With Graffiti, But This Teen Took An Awesome Photo Instead

 

 

 

” When 14-year-old Carleigh O’Connell heard that a gibe about her body had been spray-painted on a cement block for her whole town to see, she responded in the unlikeliest, but most awesome of ways: She snapped a photo while posing proudly with the graffiti.

  She then shared the image on social media and told her mom, Daryl, to do the same.

  She wanted the image to go viral. She wanted to turn the story around.

” [Carleigh] decided that she was going to be stronger than hurtful words on the concrete and that she was going to be proud of her figure,” the teen’s mom wrote in a Sunday Facebook post. “She also told me that she feels complete sympathy for the teenagers across the country who face this everyday. She understands and wants all of them to find strength inside to rise above the nastiness and be empowered by who you are, how you are made and what is in your heart.” “

Great White Shark Sighting Off Cape May

 

 

 

 

 

 

” When a shark emerged from the water with an open mouth and triangular 2-inch teeth, fisherman Steve Clark knew he was having a close encounter with a great white. The chance meeting, he says, happened about 5 p.m. Saturday at 28-Mile Wreck, the site of a World War II shipwreck off of Cape May, New Jersey.

” We were worried that it was going to harm the engine. It started to mouth it, but it wasn’t actually biting down,” said Clark. “I think it was just feeling it. It was just cool because she stayed around the boat for so long and really let us look at her.

  Clark’s team of fishermen spotted the 16-foot great white shark swimming toward their 35-foot-boat, the 35 Everglades.

  The shark swam around the vessel for about 20 minutes before ripping a chum basket of fish right from the side of the boat — the only time Clark felt nervous during the encounter. Members of the crew took photos and videos as the shark swam nearby.”

Officer: Bosses Target Young Drivers, Want Ticket Quotas

 

 

 

 

” A cop who said he refuses to profile young drivers for tickets has filed a lawsuit saying he’s been passed over for promotions and overtime because of his actions.

  Patrolman Robert Wysokowski, 43, of the Mendham Township Police Department filed suit Wednesday in Superior Court here under New Jersey’s Conscientious Employee Protection Act, also known as the Whistleblower Law. He seeks promotion to sergeant, punitive and compensatory damages for “all lost benefits, wages and rights,” and damages for emotional distress.

  Wysokowski contends that he has consistently met department standards on enforcement of motor vehicle laws but beginning in 2005, under now-former Police Chief Thomas Costanza, he was told he had to “increase his numbers.” The suit said that in 2005, Steven Crawford, who was then a sergeant but now is chief, advised Wysokowski to “seek out and target younger drivers for motor vehicle stops.”

” Crawford told plaintiff that it was ‘good police work,’ or words to that effect,” the lawsuit said. The complaint said superiors advised Wysokowski that he always could find an infraction when he stopped a vehicle.”

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 .

High School Student Banned From Prom Over A Tweet

 

Sterling High Tweet

 

 

 

” A local high school student filed a federal law suit after she’s banned from prom, her senior class trip and graduation ceremonies — all because of a tweet!

  Attorney Jerry Tannenbaum says his client is paying big time for exercising her right of free speech. Tannenbaum says the 17 year old student at Sterling High School in Somerdale, New Jersey, used twitter to communicate with friends about her foul feelings towards the high school principal. She’s accused of calling him a colorful name later seen by school officials.

  But this was done at night, at her home, off of school property to three or four of her friends.

  Further, the school wrote that the teen “will not be allowed to participate in any school sponsored events this year, including prom, senior trip, and graduation ceremonies“.

  He filed a lawsuit against the Sterling High School District in federal court on Friday accusing the district of violating the student’s first amendment rights.

You can’t dictate to your students what they can say on their own personal web pages,” declares Tannenbaum .”

New Jersey Bill Is Outright Gun Ban On .22-Caliber Rifles And Leads To Confiscation

 

By newly proposed NJ law this is now an “assault” rifle … slippery slope ? Nah

 

 

” New Jersey has become ground zero this year for legislative battles over gun control.

  The Brady Campaign ranked the state third in the nation for most restrictive firearms laws, yet anti-gun Democrats who control the legislature are determined to go all the way to gun bans and confiscation.

  The New Jersey Assembly’s Law and Public Safety Committee was scheduled to hold a public hearing on Monday (postponed for snow) about a bill that reduces the maximum magazine capacity from 15 to 10.

  Since the legislation covers both detachable and fixed magazines, it has the effect of to banning popular, low-caliber rifles.

  The Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs gave the draft legislation to top firearms experts in the country to determine what guns would fall under the expanded ban.

  They discovered that the bill would affect tube-fed, semi-automatic rifles because the magazine cannot be separated from the gun.

  Thus, the experts found that at least 43 common rifles would suddenly be considered a prohibited “assault firearm,” such as the .22 caliber Marlin Model 60, Remington Nylon 66 and Winchester 190.

  Just having one such gun would turn a law-abiding owner into a felon overnight.”

Exclusive: Dashcam Video Clears NJ Man

 

 

” The tale of the police dashcam video has now helped clear a Bloomfield, New Jersey man who faced a multitude of criminal charges, including eluding police and assault.

  Investigative Reporter Sarah Wallace obtained the dashcam tapes, and has spoken exclusively with the 30-year old DJ who was looking at years in prison.

  It was quite a turnabout, all the criminal charges against Marcus Jeter have been dismissed, and two Bloomfield police officers have been indicted for falsifying reports, and one of them, for assault.

  A third pleaded guilty early on to tampering. It’s all thanks to those dashcam tapes. It’s the video that prosecutors say they never saw when the pursued criminal charges against 30 year-old Marcus Jeter . In the video, his hands were in the air. He was charged with eluding police, resisting arrest and assault. One officer in the video can be seen throwing repeated punches.

Sarah Wallace: “It this tape hadn’t surfaced?” 
Marcus: “I’d be in jail.”

 

    Yet another case of the police investigating themselves and , even when confronted with overwhelming video evidence to the contrary , concluding that the officers involved acted properly .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Newark Police To Be Monitored By Federal Watchdog

 

Who Polices The Police

 

” The Justice Department will place the Newark Police Department under a monitor later this year, the first time in state history that a municipal police agency will operate under a federal watchdog, according to four sources familiar with the situation.

  The decision follows a federal review of the way the state’s largest police force swept aside accusations of misconduct against hundreds of officers and its almost-total failure to address complaints of brutality and abuse lodged by Newark residents over the years.

  The investigation began in 2011, a year after the American Civil Liberties Union filed a scathing 96-page petition with the Department of Justice, accusing Newark’s police of rampant misconduct.

  The ACLU investigation found citizens filed 261 complaints with the department accusing officers of using excessive force, biased actions, improper searches or false arrests in 2008 and 2009. Only one complaint was sustained by the department.

  One officer faced 62 internal affairs investigations during a 14-year career, according to the petition, while Newark shelled out nearly $5 million in response to civil lawsuits from 2007 to 2009.”

Why Pols From New Jersey Aren’t Born To Run

 

 

” Indeed, over the past decade or so, New Jersey has started to earn belated props in the public imagination, with television shows such as The Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire, and even Jersey Shore using the state as a backdrop for meditations on the American Dream. The recent and quick rise of Gov. Christie himself speaks to what might even be considered a New Jersey cultural bubble. He’s the first serious presidential contender to come out of New Jersey since Woodrow Wilson.

  Yet the Garden State — insert a not-inaccurate joke about the entire place being a Superfund toxic waste dump here — has been a national punchline at least since Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton rowed across the Hudson River from New York to shoot it out in Weehawken. (Needless to say, Burr, a native of Newark who happened to be U.S. vice president at the time, won.) “

Welfare Payouts Top $20 Per Hour In Eight States

 

welfare payouts

 

 

 ” In 35 states, welfare, housing assistance and other benefits pays more than a minimum wage job, according to a new study by the Cato Institute. The study also found that in 13 states, the payout is more than $15 per hour.

  Of course, this study doesn’t take into account that not everyone on public assistance receives all of the programs. But if they did, their payout would be significantly higher than even a starting teacher’s salary in 11 states or a computer programmer in 3 states.

  The states with the highest welfare payouts – more than $20 per hour – are Hawaii, with payments equaling $29.13 per hour, DC at $24.43 per hour, Massachusetts at $24.30 , Connecticut at $21.33, New York at $21.01 per hour, New Jersey at $20.89 per hour, Rhode Island at $20.83 per hour and Vermont at $20.36 per hour.

  Sept. 6, 2013 – Wildstein orders the authority to close two of three access lanes between Fort Lee, N.J., and the bridge.

  Sept. 9, 2013 – The Port Authority shuts down the lanes, causing a massive traffic jam. Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich contacts the Port Authority about an “urgent matter of public safety in Fort Lee.” Christie’s aides don’t respond. The closings continued for four days.”

A Machine For Crushing Christie’s Enemies

 

 

 

” New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s aides deliberately induced a big traffic jam as revenge against a mayor who wouldn’t endorse him. Christie denies that he was aware they were doing this. Let’s suppose, just for the sake of argument, that Christie’s telling the truth. Does that get the governor — and would-be president — off the hook?

  Not necessarily. Marc Ambinder explains why, leading off with the portrait of Christie in the recent book Double Down:

  Double Down‘s Christie was megalomaniacal, self-possessed, and obsessed with reciprocity: You do well by him, and he’ll do well by you. You fundraise without his permission in New Jersey, and he’ll cut the donors off. Loyalty trumped all. If Christie perceived you as disloyal, you were out of his inner circle. That’s in passive voice because Christie would leave it to his lieutenants to enforce this code of honor….”

Police Identify Four Suspects Charged In Deadly New Jersey Mall Carjacking

 

 

 


” Four men have been arrested and charged in the death of a man shot in front of his wife during a carjacking outside an upscale mall in northern New Jersey last weekend, authorities say. 

  The suspects, identified as Hanif Thompson, 29, Karif Ford, 31, Basim Henry 32, and Kevin Roberts, 33, appear to have been motivated by a desire for the victim’s silver Range Rover, Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn Murray said in a press conference Saturday. 

  The victim, 30-year-old Dustin Friedland, was shot in the head Dec.15 in front of his wife in the parking garage of The Mall at Short Hills. Authorities found the Range Rover, which two of the suspects drove off in, the next morning in Newark, about 10 miles from Short Hills. “
