    RUSH: All right. Let’s hit audio sound bite No. 3. This was yesterday at the White House business session with the governors, and Trump is talking about sheriff deputies who waited outside the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School during the shooting on February 14th. THE PRESIDENT: You know, I really believe… You don’t know until you test it, but I think — I really believe I’d run into, even if I didn’t have a weapon and I think most of the people in this room would have done that, too, because I know most of you. But the way they...

    A pair of women attacked a 64-year-old man with pepper spray Thursday night near the Powell Street BART Station in San Francisco and stole a bag — which contained the victim’s laxatives, police said. The irregular incident occurred about 9 a.m. when the man got into an argument with the two women, one of whom is estimated to be in her 20s, the other in her 60s, on Sixth Street between Market and Mission streets, according to the San Francisco Police Department.

    COOK COUNTY CRIMINAL COURTHOUSE — A mysterious good Samaritan came to the aid of a woman getting mugged at an Andersonville bus stop, cold-cocking the attacker with a Thermos and leaving him on the ground for police to clean up, authorities said. But authorities don't know who swung the Thermos: The good Samaritan took off before officers arrived, leaving a bus stop full of witnesses to tell the tale. According to his public defender, Lomeli has worked as a valet parker for the last 20 years. Cook County Judge Donald Panarese Jr. on Tuesday said Lomeli could be released on...

    Four robbers who planned to rob a pizza delivery boy after ordering delivery to an abandoned house were in for a surprise when a former NFL linebacker showed up with the pie instead. Napoleon Harris III, the former NFL linebacker and Illinois state senator, is the owner of two Chicago-area Beggars pizza franchises and was sitting in one of them right before closing time when a last minute call came in, The Daily Mail reported. Harris offered to deliver the pizza himself since the crew was overwhelmed, but he didn’t know that the house was vacant.

    A 26-year-old man has been arrested in the East Harlem mugging of a 93-year-old woman in a wheelchair. Authorities say Broyoan Lopez, of Brooklyn, is charged with robbery, grand larceny and criminal possession of stolen property. The NYPD Warrant Squad reportedly picked him up near Grand Central Terminal just before 7 a.m. Friday. "He hurt me, he hurt me right there and in the arm right there," victim Maria Vasquez said. "Because I tried to grab him, but he pushed my arm away. And that's where I got hurt." Vasquez was just trying to buy slippers from Regine's on East...

    The London Shomrim stopped a thief from robbing a member of the House of Lords earlier this week. The Jewish Chronicle reports that two youths riding bicycles attack Lord Glasman, a Labour Party peer, near his Stoke Newington home. Fortunately, several members of the Jewish neighborhood watch organization saw the incident and chased down the attempted muggers. They then held the suspects until police were able to take over. "Thank you for your exemplary work, that you do every day and for what you did yesterday," said Lord Glasman. "You make all people in our community safer, even me. It...

    His bad reputation is bigger than he is. A 10-year-old Brooklynite accused of mugging a 67-year-old grandma and torching a local business is “a one-kid crime wave . . . a very troubled young individual,” Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said of the alleged prepubescent pyromaniac said Thursday. The pint-sized perp, who’s yet to hit 5 feet tall, arrived Thursday for a Family Court hearing with his mother — who attacked a photographer, swinging her purse at him, as they left for home. “My son is awesome. He’s a good kid,” the mother snapped before heading off. “You paint him like...

    WASHINGTON HEIGHTS — A woman jogging in a park while pushing her 8-month-old son in a stroller Friday morning turned the tables on a would-be attacker, hitting him over the head with a tire pump and sending him packing, she said. Mary Jane Jarman, 33, a stay-at-home mom from Washington Heights, was jogging home on the Hudson River Greenway near the Henry Hudson Parkway and 190th Street at 9:30 a.m. Friday after dropping her daughter off at school when a man jumped out from a behind a wall holding a broken glass bottle, she said.

    The disgusting, lynch mob mentality that has arisen from the Trayvon Martin shooting case places us several notches towards race riots this summer. To the balanced observer, Zimmerman really does appear to have likely shot Martin in self defense. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton and Barack Hussein Obama started babbling before all the facts were in. These collectivist droids seldom retreat from any lie ... they simply magnify it further. If George Zimmerman is acquitted the fuse will light. Remember Rodney King? If you live in an urban environment, don't be stupid. Pay attention! -------------------------cut-------------------------- EXTRA - 10/31/12 watch the...

As they run away, the door slams against the victim's head.

    A Newark man died after a tussle with a former high school wrestler he tried to rob early Saturday, NBC New York has learned. Law-enforcement sources told NBC New York that 30-year-old Gian Davis approached two men near Bloomfield Avenue at about 1:15 a.m. and asked for change. When the men said "no," he then asked to borrow a cell phone, grabbed it and tried to run off with it, sources said. One of the men lunged to get the phone back and Davis put him in a headlock, according to sources. Then, sources say the other man, a former...

    Police in Delaware are slowly piecing together the details surrounding the death of former presidential advisor John P. "Jack" Wheeler III. It now seems Wheeler spent at least two days wandering the streets of Wilmington disoriented. Police say Wheeler traveled from Washington, D.C., where he worked, to Wilmington Tuesday on an AMTRAK train. He was last seen alive at 3:30 p.m. Thursday near the Hotel duPont parking garage at 10th and Orange streets. Iman Goldsborough, the parking lot attendant, encountered a man she believes was Wheeler on Wednesday night near the intersection where he was last officially seen Thursday. Goldsborough...

    DENVER -- A thief's thirst for a brand new iPad cost a Colorado man not only a much-coveted device but also two-thirds of a pinky finger. Doctors had to amputate part of Bill Jordan's left pinky after a man Thursday yanked away a bag containing an iPad that Jordan had just purchased at a Denver mall.

    Excerpts from the report I just had a very interesting and somewhat confusing conversation with New Orleans Police Department Public Information Officer Bob Young. Mr. Young confirmed to me that the New Orleans police had indeed taken statements from both of the victims, Jindal aide Allee Bautsch and her boyfriend, Joe [Brown]. He confirmed that in those statements, the victims reported that their assailants had indeed hurled “insults” at them, and the “insults” were, and I quote, “of a political nature”. UPDATE, 1:32 a.m.: And now comes something not altogether unexpected. Daniel Mauch, “francisnblake,” has gone dark. He’s deleted all...

    The brawl over rate increases is a preview of ObamaCare. Democrats and their media allies have found a new insurance piñata: WellPoint and its recent health-premium price increases in California. This spat deserves more attention, because its real lesson is what will happen to health insurance costs around the country if ObamaCare passes. WellPoint's California unit, Anthem Blue Cross, recently informed nearly 700,000 individual insurance customers of premium increases of up to 39%. President Obama jumped on the announcement, claiming in a pre-Superbowl TV interview that the hikes were a "portrait of the future if we don't do something now."...
