Naval Air Base Shooter Was “Terrorism-Related”

Published

on

The FBI has determined that an active shooter incident at a naval base in Texas Thursday morning was related to terrorism.

“We have determined that the incident this morning at the Naval Air Station Corpus Christi is terrorism-related,” the FBI said at a press briefing Thursday afternoon, adding that while the shooter is deceased, “there may be a second person of interest at large in the community. The public should remain calm, and if you see something, say something.”

USA Today:

An armed person who wounded a sailor at a U.S. Navy air base in Corpus Christi, Texas, on Thursday was killed by security officers, officials said.

The Associated Press reported that the shooter tried to speed through a gate at the base in a vehicle, but security personnel put up a barrier in time to stop the shooting, according to U.S. officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because it is an ongoing investigation. The man then got out of the car and opened fire, striking and wounding a Navy sailor who is a member of the security force at the base. During the exchange of gunfire, the shooter was killed by security personnel, the officials said.

FBI Supervisory Senior Resident Agent Leah Greeves said at a news conference that the incident was “terrorism-related” and confirmed the alleged shooter is deceased.

“We may have a potential second related person of interest at large in the community,” she said. “But we would encourage the public to remain calm, and if you see something, say something.” More

Of course it was an act of terrorism.

His mosque should be closed pending an investigation. This is not a Freedom of Religion issue. It is a security issue.

Portland Protests Have Cost Downtown Businesses $23 Million and Counting

Black Lives Matter rioters have cost Portland’s downtown businesses $23 million so far and counting.

Published

on

Black Lives Matter is one of the most destructive, dangerous forces in recent memory. And now we find that the rioters have cost Portland’s downtown businesses $23 million and counting.

The figure came out during a police briefing on Wednesday as Portland Police Bureau’s Deputy Chief Chris Davis noted that the intensity of the violence by an “agitator corps” was unprecedented in the city.

“It is really unprecedented in Portland’s history. We are now in our sixth week of these events and we’re always hopeful that we’re winding down,” Davis told reporters. “We’ve never seen this intensity of violent, focused criminal activity over this long of a period of time.”

Rioters have returned time and again to the liberal, Democrat-infested city and have brought death and destruction right along with them.

The city became the joke of the nation after a group of rioters chased the police force out of one of its precinct houses and set up the “autonomous zone” where they refused to allow cops to enter.

The city finally removed the illegal enclave weeks after it had been established.

Sadly, the city didn’t act soon enough to prevent rampant violence and murder inside the zone that had proclaimed itself as built by peacemakers working for racial harmony.

At least two people were murdered and several shot inside tis lawless zone while the city’s politicians and police stood outside and pandered to the criminals.

But Portland has been the scene of Antifa fascists and their riots for years, already. So, the Black Lives Matter riots are nothing new for Portland.

In the end, one has to wonder why anyone would open a business anywhere near that city in the first place?

Published

By

Police are asking for help in the search for the assailants who attacked an Ohio man Eldon Hawkins, who is 58 years old and has cerebral palsy, during a violent left-wing protest on May 31, shortly following the death of George Floyd.

Columbus PD has released a compiled video footage of the disturbing attack, asking citizens to identify the people involved.

Columbus Division of Police:

Columbus Police is asking for the public’s help identifying persons in this video.

The incident involves a vehicle take-over by people protesting in the downtown area on May 31st, 2020 at approximately 7 pm at the intersection of High St and Broad St.

The video documents people engaging in violent behavior directed at a victim with Cerebral Palsy and his vehicle as well as others who actively came to his rescue and attempted to stop the violence.

Columbus Police is interested in identifying persons of interest responsible for the violence as well as eyewitnesses to include those who came to the victim’s rescue.

As documented in the video, many bystanders were recording what unfolded.

Columbus Police asks anyone with info or video evidence regarding this incident to come forward.

Information may be shared by contacting Columbus Police Det. Steven Nace at [email protected] or 614-645-2119.

Information can be passed along anonymously through Central Ohio Crime Stoppers or 614-461- TIPS (8477).

According to ABC 6 On Your Side, police said the protesters “acted violently toward others who came to help the man and stop the violence.”

So much for protesting, this is rioting! It’s no wonder people are afraid and panic. You get your vehicle surrounded by people shouting and hitting at them. I would be terrified and probably hit the gas. This has to stop. Protesting is one thing but this is terrorizing people.

Grandfather of Murdered Black 11-Year-Old Destroys Black Lives Matter

As Black Lives Matter rioters continue destroy cities across America, black children are being murdered — and not by cops.

Published

As Black Lives Matter rioters continue destroy cities across America, black children are being murdered — and not by cops, but by their own neighbors.

Black Lives Matter has been demanding the end of police forces and while that has not quite yet happened, police are being pulled back from some of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the nation. And as a result, kids are increasingly being killed in every large, Democrat-controlled city in America.

One man lost his 11-year-old grandson, Davon McNeal, on July 4 in Washington D.C. And he has words for Black Lives Matter.

“Everybody’s just saying they’re just tired – tired of the shootings in the community,” John Ayala, McNeal’s grandfather, told FOX 5. “Everybody’s running around here thinking they’re Uzi-toting, dope-sucking, psychopathic killing machines and they’re just destroying lives.”

“We’re protesting for months, for weeks, saying, ‘Black Lives Matter, Black Lives Matter.’ Black lives matter it seems like, only when a police officer shoots a black person,” Ayala lamented, bitterly. “What about all the black-on-black crime that’s happening in the community?”

Ayala added that someone opened fire shortly after the boy got out of the car at around 9:20 p.m.

One of the boy’s other grandfathers told the media that he hates the Fourth of July holiday because he doesn’t know whether to celebrate or duck from gunfire.

“He was a good kid. I mean, his life gone,” said the boy’s other grandfather, Tony Lawson. “Eleven years old, he hadn’t lived his life yet. Eleven years old. We got to stop killing each other. Stop it. Put the guns down.”

Another Hate Crime Hoax: Police Say Oregon Candidate Wrote ‘Hate Letter’ to Himself

A Hispanic candidate in Umatilla County, Oregon, reported a racist letter attacking him, but police found out…

Published

on

A Hispanic candidate for county commissioner in Umatilla County, Oregon, reported a racist letter attacking him, but a police investigation found that he wrote the thing himself.

County commission candidate Jonathan Lopez told police that he received an intimidating letter on June 23. The Umatilla County District Attorney’s Office immediately launched an investigation, but the final determination did not make Lopez look very good, and that’s for sure.

Hermiston Police Chief Jason Edmiston told the media that the investigation into the “hate crime” has been closed and it was found that Lopez made a false police report, according to KOMO News..

The police noted that Lopez eventually admitted to them that he wrote the hate hoax letter himself.

He was charged with making a false report, a Class A misdemeanor in Oregon.

Not only has Lopez been charged with filing a false police report, the investigation also found that he lied about his military service. He has now also been charged with potential election fraud as it pertains to the Stolen Valor Act of 2013

In a statement to KOMO, Chief Edmiston wrote, “The time spent on this fictitious claim means time lost on other matters, not to mention it needlessly adds to the incredible tension that exists in our nation today.”

Edmiston added, “As a lifelong resident of this diverse community, I’m disgusted someone would try to carelessly advance their personal ambitions at the risk of others.”

One line from the letter exclaimed, “Don’t waste your time trying to become anything in this county we will make sure you never win, and your family suffers along with all the other (expletive) Mexicans in the area!” The letter ended with, “Sincerely, America!”

Protesters Who Occupied Area Near Atlanta Wendy’s Apparently Shoot Little Girl

Protesters Who Occupied Area Near Atlanta Wendy’s Apparently Shoot Little Girl

Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms blasted protesters who had turned violent after a historic night of shootings on July 4 where 28 people where shot and four killed.

“You can’t blame this on a police officer. You can’t say this about criminal justice reform. This is about some people carrying some weapons who shot up a car with an 8-year-old baby in the car for what?!?  Enough is enough,” she continued. “If you want people to take us seriously and you don’t want us to lose this movement, we can’t lose each other.”

WSB:

An 8-year-old girl was shot and killed Saturday night in Atlanta near the Wendy’s where Rayshard Brooks died last month.

Police identified the child Sunday as Secoriea Turner.

Officers said they responded to a shooting call near University Avenue and I-75/I-85 around 9:50 p.m. The location of the shooting was in a parking lot across the street from the now burned-out Wendy’s, which has been occupied by demonstrators since Brooks’ death.

Police said Turner was riding in a car with her mother and her mother’s friend when they exited the interstate at University Avenue. The driver tried to turn into the parking lot at 1238 Pryor Road when he was confronted by an “group of armed individuals” who had blocked the entrance.

“At some point, someone in that group opened fire on the vehicle, striking it multiple times and striking the child who was inside. The driver then drove to Atlanta Medical Center for help,” police said in a statement. More

Wow, now ask yourself why is this not front-page news everywhere? The area should have been secured by now since we already know that armed protesters had threatened, punched a person, damaged a car, and refused to let it pass them just because the occupants had white skin. This mayor has blood on her hands.

Don’t Believe the Left’s Lies: There is NO Epidemic of Police Killing Blacks

BLM has succeeded in fooling America into thinking police are going around killing unarmed blacks “every day.” But this is all a lie.

Published

Black Lives Matter has succeeded in fooling America into thinking police are going around killing unarmed blacks “every day.” But this is all a lie. Don’t believe it.

Excellent writer and researcher Heather Mac Donald recently put up an important piece explaining ow the let has lied about the actions of our police.

“Ideally officers would never need to take anyone’s life. But the data on police killings doesn’t support reducing or abolishing law enforcement,” she wrote in a July 3 article, adding, “but the evidence does not support the charge that biased police are systematically killing Black Americans in fatal shootings.”

Mac Donald also noted that blacks often find themselves interacting with police in their neighborhoods far more than whites because blacks disproportionately commit most of the crimes.

“In New York City in 2018, 73% of shooting victims were Black, though Black residents comprise only 24% of the city’s population,” she noted.

“Nationally, African Americans between the ages of 10 and 34 die from homicide at 13 times the rate of white Americans, according to researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Justice Department,” she added.

Mac Donald also pointed out that during her travels in black communities as she gathers information about policing, she finds that most want a stronger police presence. Mac Donald said that this would not be the case if blacks were being killed by the thousands every year.

if the police were engaging in an epidemic of shooting unarmed Black men and women, as we now hear daily — but there is no such epidemic. For the last five years, the police have fatally shot about 1,000 civilians annually, the vast majority of whom were armed or otherwise dangerous. Black people account for about 23% of those shot and killed by police; they are about 13% of the U.S. population.

As of the June 22 update, the Washington Post’s database of fatal police shootings showed 14 unarmed Black victims and 25 unarmed white victims in 2019. The database does not include those killed by other means, like George Floyd.

She continued:

The number of unarmed Black shooting victims is down 63% from 2015, when the database began. There are about 7,300 Black homicide victims a year. The 14 unarmed victims in fatal police shootings would comprise only 0.2% of that total.

Ideally, officers would never take anyone’s life in the course of their duties. But given the number of arrests they make each year (around 10 million) and the number of deadly-weapons attacks on officers (an average of 27 per day in just two-thirds of the nation’s police departments, according to a 2014 analysis), it is not clear that these 1,000 civilian shooting deaths suggest that law enforcement is out of control.

Mac Donald ended her piece with a plea to improve, not end the police.

She is right. Black Lives Matter is built on a web of lies. It needs to end.

Chicago: Two More Children Killed Violence Spike, City Sees Two Mass Shootings In Under 24 Hours

Chicago: Two More Children Killed Violence Spike, City Sees Two Mass Shootings In Under 24 Hours

Chicago violence erupted during the holiday weekend, at least 67 shot with 13 killed. Among the victims are a 7-year-old girl fatally shot at a Fourth of July party and a 14-year-boy who was one of four people killed in a shooting that hurt four others.

TDW:

Two children — a 7-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy — were among the more a dozen killed in Chicago this weekend, as the city suffers through its worst streak of gun violence in years.

Of the nearly 70 wounded in the city between Friday night and Sunday morning, nine were minors. Several were shot in two eight-plus victim mass shootings, both on the city’s south side, according to the Chicago Sun-Times, which has been tracking the city’s dramatic uptick in gun crime since late May, when Chicago began to release its coronavirus-related lockdown measures.

“A 14-year-old boy was among four people killed in a shooting that wounded four others Saturday night in Englewood on the South Side,” the outlet reported Sunday morning. “They were at a large gathering in the street about 11:35 p.m. in the 6100 block of South Carpenter Street when four males walked up and started shooting, according to Chicago police. The 14-year-old boy was hit in the back and pronounced dead at Comer Children’s Hospital.”

An 11-year-old and a 15-year-old were also wounded in that shooting, and three men were killed.

The 7-year-old girl, Natalie Wallace, was celebrating the Fourth of July with her family at her grandmother’s home when, in a similar fashion, “a vehicle pulled up and three men got out and started shooting indiscriminately,” according to Fox News. More

And yet, Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws on the books. Law-abiding citizens aren’t the issue, and neither is the gun. A gun can only shoot if someone pulls the trigger. So Mayor Lightfoot cannot blame the guns on the issue. It’s her own policing policies.
