  • Gunshot, not Lethal Injections, Is Most Humane

    Capital punishment in the US needs to be debated on its own merits and may eventually go the way of Canada. Until then, a humane society needs to choose the most humane method of employing it Lethal injection executions, back in the news, just aren’t working. For a variety of reasons. While they are bloodless (so is strangulation, starvation, and being broken on the wheel), it appears they often are not painless. They most certainly are not quick, sometimes taking hours. They arguably violate the Hippocratic Oath in having a doctor perform them, yet you hardly want an amateur to...

    A 13-year-old is in critical condition and a second teen was injured in a shooting early Sunday morning on Ocean Avenue, officials said.  Both boys were shot near Wegman Parkway just before 3 a.m., city spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill said.  A 15-year-old boy suffered a gunshot wound to his ankle and his injuries are not considered life threatening. The 13-year-old suffered a "more serious" injury to his back, Morrill said.

    My twenty year old daughter was shot multiple times Wednesday night 6/8/16 in Charlotte NC. She has two bullets inside her.. lost her spleen, 2 holes in the stomach. I have been encouraging her to leave the city before something terrible happens.. she didnt7, but she will now. I am amazed by God's Almighty Grace that she is alive, I think, even lucky, considering the close range. Pray for her to seek Jesus, to heal, to say goodbye forever to the boy who put her in harms way. Pray for his soul. As usual, he was relatively unharmed, taking one...

    MIRAMAR, Fla. – Police say a shooting victim was apparently taken by a friend to a South Florida Wal-Mart instead of a hospital and left outside the store. Miramar police spokeswoman Tania Rues says in an email that the victim was suffering from a gunshot wound when he was left outside the store Monday afternoon. He was later taken to a hospital for treatment and was listed in stable condition. Rues' statement didn't say who found the victim or who took him to the hospital.

    The two men suspected of attacking a newspaper in Paris have stolen a car and reportedly have several hostages. A car chase is under way on the N2 motorway, and police sources say shots have been fired. The car is now on the outskirts of Paris - close to Charles de Gaulle airport - and several helicopters are reportedly hovering overhead. Sky's Ian Woods says the police focus now appears to have turned to an industrial building near to the airport. Two people with gunshot wounds have been taken to hospital in Meaux.

    When a soldier is shot on the battlefield, the emergency treatment can seem as brutal as the injury itself. A medic must pack gauze directly into the wound cavity, sometimes as deep as 5 inches into the body, to stop bleeding from an artery. It’s an agonizing process that doesn't always work--if bleeding hasn't stopped after three minutes of applying direct pressure, the medic must pull out all the gauze and start over again. It’s so painful, “you take the guy’s gun away first,” says former U.S. Army Special Operations medic John Steinbaugh. Even with this emergency treatment, many soldiers...

    Now if a gun is fired, police will be able to know where that gun went off within 25 meters and property managers around here say it has already started to bring some extra security. The ShotSpotter System has been in Springfield for four years but this is an expansion that is already getting results. “The concerns are going to be there but not as much, if you see the data on crime now in the North End it has declined,” said Maria Perez from the North End of Springfield. By getting to the locations faster, police say they have...

    Masked and armed members of Fatah, Hamas’ rival party headed by Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, shot automatic rifles in the air as they marched through Hevron on Saturday. The parade marked the anniversary of the founding of Fatah by Yasser Arafat, who was succeeded by Abbas after his death eight years ago. The scene of masked men shooting rifles was identical with Hamas demonstrations in Gaza over the years. The march did not encroach on the Jewish neighborhoods in Hevron, but it illustrates the face of Fatah not reported in mainstream media, which promotes Abbas as Israel’s ”peace partner.”...
  • Johnston County OKs new noise ordinance, nixes gunshot ban(NC)

    Smithfield, N.C. — The Johnston County Board of Commissioners approved a new noise ordinance Tuesday, but left out a provision that would ban loud gun discharges. An ordinance banning loud gunshots, music, cars and ATVs in residential areas was proposed after neighbors voiced a number of complaints about a gun owner in the Oak Ridge subdivision near Willow Springs who uses his backyard as a shooting range. "I've never shot in a way that was intentionally designed to inconvenience people," he said. "It's been occasional." The newly adopted ordinance better defines violations, said county attorney David Mills. "Time of day,...

The 36-year-old man was inside his Ford Focus when a gunshot struck him in the head in the 1300 block of East 74th Street in the Grand Crossing neighborhood at about 12:03 a.m., police said. The shooting may have been a drive-by, police said.

    Anatomy and the Perfect (Undead) Headshot Does the creative team behind the hit TV show The Walking Dead take zombie anatomy as seriously as the legions of crazed fanboys? PM investigates. Horror aficionados judge onscreen zombie special effects by the quality of the cranial gunshots that kill the ghouls. The cameras of AMC's show The Walking Dead linger on the aftereffects of gunshots to the heads of their undead in a way that can only be described as lavish. The show's just-completed first season has been serious, emotional, well-written and epic. But for those kind of people who are obsessed...

    Staffers to a top House GOP member sought to clarify an earlier claim of political violence against him Friday after police determined that a bullet shot at his local campaign office was the result of random gunfire. Rep. Eric Cantor, R-Virginia, told reporters Thursday that a bullet had been shot through the window of his Richmond office - supposedly part of an escalating cycle of violence and threats in the wake of Sunday's sharply polarized health care reform vote. Richmond police later determined, however, that Cantor had not been targeted by political opponents. Instead, they concluded, the incident was a...

    Gunshot wounds can cause severe bleeding that is not subject to typical control measures like pressure application and bandaging the site. Most of the torn vessels are way below the skin, and so external methods to stem the bleeding don't address the real problem within, especially in the trunk. CardioCommand out of Tampa, Florida has developed the TourniCath device that is actually inserted into the wound along the bullet's path and then inflated to apply pressure directly to the insides. At over a foot in length and half an inch in diameter before inflation, the device is designed for quick...

    Northeast China's Liaoning province has become the first province in the country to make lethal injection the standard practice for all its death penalty convicts. The Higher People's Court of Liaoning announced on Wednesday that all cities in the province have adopted the method, which means execution by gunshot will no longer be used. "Lethal injection can reduce the fear and suffering experienced by criminals," the court said in a statement on its website. "It can also help preserve the body of the convicts after death. "It is a symbol of the progress of civilization, and it also serves to...

It was the second time in recent months that a pizza delivery man in Lexington County has shot someone trying to rob him. The other incident was March 7, when a Pizza Hut delivery man shot and...

    LOS ANGELES — A security guard shot and killed a man wielding a sword Sunday on the grounds of a Scientology building in Hollywood, police said. The unidentified man approached the guard around noon in the parking lot of the Scientology Celebrity Centre, said Officer April Harding, a police spokeswoman. The guard "felt threatened for his life" and fired at the man, Harding said. He was pronounced dead at a hospital. Detectives were questioning the guard to figure out the swordsman's motive and determine whether the shooting was justified, Harding said. Calls to Scientology spokespeople were not immediately returned Sunday....
