    Wendi Winters, 65, mother of four, formerly of the New York fashion industry PR world, was a community reporter for the Capital Gazette, where she chronicled the comings and goings of regular people. No glamour there: She practiced the journalism of the cafeteria, the Brownie troop, the trip to the dry cleaners. That’s no way to get on MSNBC. She had but one weapon—her body. She threw it at the man with the gun. “I heard her shout, ‘No!’ ” a witness said. “There was anger in her voice.” Further reports confirm the scenario. She was found in the aisle,...

    The government has revealed only now that the Pulse nightclub shooter's father was an FBI informant for 11 years before the attack, lawyers for his widow said Monday. They said prosecutors also told them in an email Saturday that the government found evidence on the day of the attack that Omar Mateen's father, Seddique Mateen, had been sending money to Afghanistan and Turkey, and that he had been accused of raising money to fund violence against the government of Pakistan. Noor Salman's lawyers said the new information - shared only after prosecutors rested their case - should result in a...

According to defense lawyers, Assistant U.S. Attorney Sara Sweeney sent them an email on Saturday night that revealed Seddique Mateen was a confidential FBI source and is also under investigation for suspicious money transfers to Turkey and Afghanistan, based on documents that were discovered in his home on the day of the nightclub...

    "This is no little, trivial thing. Even the left loves never stops reminding us, 'words matter.' The problem is that we've bought into the nomenclature of the left, and our doing so has shifted the conversation dramatically in their favor and kept us from focusing and thinking and seeing clearly, and it prevents us from solving our problems – in this case, what seems to be the growth of mass murders. This is destructive because it focuses our minds on the 'shooting' – i.e., the use of guns and not the crime of mass murder. "Think of it this way:...

    An Obama-era “no-arrest policy” guideline for school discipline may have hindered the ability of authorities to prevent Nikolas Cruz’s mass murder of 17 persons at a Florida high school on February 14, said the Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives Richard Corcoran. Corcoran, a Republican from Florida’s Pasco County, made his comments on Monday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight with hosts Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak. Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel coordinated with the Broward County Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie to implement a school disciplinary guidelines — entitled the PROMISE program: Preventing Recidivism through Opportunities, Mentoring, Interventions, Supports...

    It was all over the news for two weeks; you couldn’t avoid the stories f you tried. But just a few weeks after the horrendous mass casualty shooting, all talk of what Stephen Paddock’s motivations, connections, and activities have disappeared. Sure, we have the latest mass shooting o contend with, but why have the media, and more importantly, official statements, gone dark? When we look at other mass shootings in US history, they are examined under a microscope e and are still being talked about and theorized on even years later after the actual events. Who hasn’t heard ideas on...
  • Texas shooter claimed to buy animals on Craigslist for 'target practice,' former colleague says

    Texas church shooter Devin Kelley claimed he bought animals on Craigslist with the sole intention of killing them, a former Air Force colleague told CNN. Jessika Edwards, who says she worked with Kelley at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico from 2010 to 2012, said Kelley told her he was "using the dogs as target practice." The morbid admission came in Facebook messages starting in 2014, Edwards said, after the two reconnected in civilian life. Though Edwards can't say whether Kelley was telling the truth, the odd behavior was enough for her to stop communicating with him.
