    Cop Killer Ismaaiyl Brinsley may have been responding to a fatwa.Ismaaiyl Brinsley murdered NYPD officers Wenjian Liu and Raphael Ramos in cold blood on last Saturday in Brooklyn.. City officials confirmed that Brinsley had attended a Mike Brown rally in New York City. He took video at the protest. Police Commissioner William Bratton said Ismaaiyl was carrying $100 bills in his pocket. But he had no job or home. Andrew G. Bostom, professor of medicine at Brown University, told Steve Malzberg that Ismaaiyl may have been responding to a fatwa to murder police officers. “People are reluctant to even acknowledge...

    Pastor Vinyard in his Church It appears that the teen burglar did not read the papers.   It is foolish to burgle the house of a "vocal supporter of gun rights", and then attack them in their home.  Tom Vinyard is the senior pastor of Windsor Hills Baptist Church, and has been outspoken in his political beliefs.  From newsok.com: A pastor at a northwest Oklahoma City church who has been a vocal proponent of gun rights has been cleared of wrongdoing in the fatal shooting of a 14-year-old boy at the pastor’s home.

Much like during the turbulent late '60s and early '70s when more than just a few hard-left individuals managed to get their images splashed across television screens across the planet, much like their forefathers of almost half a century ago, today's members and supporters of The Revolutionary Communist Party, USA are propagating as loud as they can to convince the masses that police departments across the nation are dyed-in-the-wool racists, referred to as "Pigs," who seek to murder as many blacks and Latinos as possible.

    After seven hours of deliberation, the jury found Mitrel Anderson not guilty of all charges in the stabbing death of DeMario Lee.  The incident occurred in Lacrosse, Wisconsin last year.  Anderson did not deny killing Lee, but had always contended that his actions were in self defense. Anderson was confronted by three men in the bathroom of a convenience store.   Anderson and Lee had known each other since childhood, but the relationship had soured.  Lee had publicly threatened Anderson and told him that he would kill him.   From kwwl.com, the prosecutor stated in closing arguments: "When you're getting roughed...

A Richmond homeowner shot Ruben in the chest after he discovered Ruben and another man attempting to steal property from his backyard last Saturday.  I think most people would see a clear connection between...

    It is unusual for a 52-year-old man to be shot invading a home.  When I see it, it usually is a career criminal, someone who is drunk and mistakes the home, is in the middle of a bad domestic situation, or someone who had a long brewing feud with a neighbor.  In the case of Garry Lieberth of North Platte, Nebraska, I have not been able to find any evidence of those things.  Perhaps we will learn more when the toxicology report comes in.  From the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office in Colorado: The adult male homeowner was asleep on...

    A protective order can be effective.  Especially if it is backed up with a gun.  Protective orders are meant to be backed with armed force.  The problem is that in many cases, armed agents of the state either arrive too late to be of help, or they cannot stay around long enough to provide effective protection.  But when the armed force is in the form of the person who asked for the protective order, the protection is multiplied many times.  In this case out of Indiana, the suspect, Jeffrey Frakes, had been released from jail the day before.From wishtv.com:...

    Sometimes, you just need Texas. As the rest of the entertainment industry was being brought to its knees by the threat of more hacking and terrorism, a theater in Texas decided to both capitalize on this story and stand up for freedom of speech. The only bummer is they’re holding a free screening, as I’d hoped they’d rake in a bunch of cash for filling a gap in the market, which would be as appropriately American as the statement they’re making about our values. They should be rewarded, and they will be, at least with brand recognition and good will:...

Masked bandits are breaking windows, starting bonfires, and robbing and looting banks, stores, restaurants, and the like. (1)But there is one problem with this narrative. There aren’t any anarchists in Berkeley. OK, maybe there are a few UC Berkeley professors who call themselves anarchists. But while they talk the talk, they don’t walk the walk.

    H.B. 234  is an 18 page reform of Ohio's firearms laws, though most of the 18 pages are existing law.  The reforms are simple commonsense reforms of provisions of state law that were unduly restrictive and made no sense.  This was reflected by the large vote margins for passage of the bill; 24-6 in the Senate, 69-16 in the House.  The bill now goes to Governor Kasich, who has not indicated if he will sign it or not.   Disarmists are already lobbying the Governor in an attempt to have him veto the bill.  Governor Kasich has 10 days from...

    In a small percentage of cases, a victim disarms an attacker.  The attacker usually runs off.  In one case, they even asked for the gun back!   My experience is that disarms by victims are considerably more common than disarms by attackers.   It is not hard to understand why.  The victim has a lot more to gain from a disarm; the attacker a lot more to lose if he continues the fight.   Sometimes the victim turns the gun on the attacker, as happen in this case in Chicago.   It happened in the 6600 block of South State Street, one of...

Despite the severity of the assault and injuries she sustained, Jenna still experienced a feeling of personal responsibility. Looking for affirmation, she sought out peers and told her story. Sadly, each and every one of the friends she reached out to responded with varying denials of her experience; these responses worsened her feelings of self-blame – that she must be confused because that fraternity “is full of great guys”; that she must have made them think she was “down for...

    DECEMBER 5, 2014 BY SCOTT JOHNSON Don’t breathe! John observes that in Minneapolis “The liberals are revolting.” It’s a general truth but, in Minnesota, we have a bad case of it.I happened to be heading south on Highway 35W out of downtown Minneapolis at mid-afternoon yesterday when I saw the roving band of ladies and gentlemen of the idiotic left marching north. They accompanied themselves with the the mindless “I can’t breathe” chant. I found the chant inspirational. I confess: it inspired prohibited thoughts of “If only.”Can we get a counterdemonstration going? “Don’t breathe!” The traffic heading north toward downtown...

    In yet another of those increasingly frequent moments when “progressivism” means its precise antonym, a group of college students in Missouri are testing out a new and exciting theory of social organization: Segregation. According to a report in The College Fix, University of Missouri students organizing a “die-in” to protest recent events in Ferguson recently won the honor of having a variety of classes effectively cancelled in order to allow maximum participation. There is just one problem – the protests organizers humbly requested that “only people of color” be allowed to join in the demonstrations. “During the demonstration we will...

    Protesters  blocked the street in the central west end of St. Louis.  They surrounded a minivan containing a single white male, and jumped on the hood.  The driver of mini-van took evasive action, spilling the hood jumper into the street.   He drew a firearm while apparently calling police.    One of the protesters claimed that the man struck one of the people who were blocking the street, and called the police.   There were no reports of an ambulance called to the area.    From thegatewaypundit.com:  Photo captures man flashing gun at protesters in CWE #STL http://ift.tt/1FQm6ZG Notice that the person...

    Last year, David Carlson of Sparrow Bush, New York, was a principal actor in a tragic situation involving a fugitive who was facing statutory rape charges.   Norris Acosta-Sanchez had fled the police and was living in a cabin not far from the Carlson's home.  Carlson got to know him; well enough to invite him to dinner in his house several times.   Acosta-Sanchez eventually confided in Carlson that he was a wanted man, though he did not disclose the charges against him. Carlson tried to cooperate with police to have Acosta-Sanchez taken into custody.   In a sequence of events worthy...

    All lies and jest, Still, a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest - From “The Boxer” by Paul Simon & Art Garfunkel It’s the morning of Tuesday, November 25, 2014 as I write this, and I feel worn out. Frankly, this article was to be on a completely different topic, something reflecting on recent personal experiences we’ve had and how we’ve begun to think about the application of their lessons to the realm of law enforcement. But things change. Barely 12 hours ago, Althea and I watched St Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch deliver the...

    It's a video, so no body of thread. E.g. (teaser), hard-cord Obama supporter "Questlove" Gomez, responsible for greeting Michele Bachmann's appearance with Jimmy Fallon by having the band playing the song "Lyin' Ass Bitch." "Questlove," oh so deeply tweeted: "his name was Eric Garner. #EndPoliceBrutality."

    Kudos from the Phoenix New Times Okay. We can take it. It’s all in fun, after all. Or is it? At any rate, the bizarro-world* leftists at the Phoenix New Times tabloid have awarded Seeing Red AZ the “Best Right-Wing Blog, 2014.” We are even credited as a valuable resource “for reporters and researchers. They got us right on our view of John McCain, but skewed the facts on nearly everything else, as was doubtless their intent.

    The North Carolina legislature has seen fit to remove restrictions that forbid  children under the age of 12 from using BB guns and air rifles without supervision.  I am not sure when such a law was put into place;  it seems that such a decision is best left up to parents.  I learned to use an air rifle when I was 11, and was very responsible with it.   What is peculiar about this law is that it only applies to some counties and not others.  There are 100 counties in North Carolina.  The statute formerly applied to 17 counties;...

    Cary Bogue, owner of the Facebook page entitled "Catholics and Protestants United Against Christian Discrimination, has said, "We all know Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is an avowed atheist, pro-abortion and a strong advocate for the LGBT." See here. Apparently so. Back in 2012, on the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, an exercise in judicial fabrication, I posted a photograph of an aborted [murdered] baby on Facebook. The photograph was immediately removed by Facebook and I received this notice: "One of Your Photos Was Removed. One of your photos was recently removed because it was found to violate Facebook policies....
