We have to stop letting violent people out to kill again

Dear Lord, why would a person who is charged with assault with a gun be bailed out? Who thinks that is a good idea? Now, a sweet seven-year-old is gone forever. Here is the story, I cannot even comment right now

“We just lost a 7-year-old innocent child in our family for no reason,” Kenneth Woods, a relative of Aaliyah Norris told WLOS at a memorial for the girl Thursday night.

Aaliyah was sitting in a car in Forest City when she was shot in the head. She was taken to a local hospital, where she remained on life support until succumbing to her injuries two days later, according to a Forest City police news release obtained by PEOPLE.

On Wednesday, Shaquille Marshon Francis, 26, was arrested and charged with murder.

Francis was arrested earlier on Tuesday for assault by pointing a gun, according to arrest records obtained by WLOS. However, he bonded himself out and three hours later, he allegedly shot Aaliyah.

Dear God why was this animal walking around? We know why, violent people are DANGEROUS! YET, we keep letting them out. And they keep hurting innocent people

Rayshard Brooks shooting body cam video

Let us all hope that everyone allows for a full investigation. Here it is, it is long, amazing how quickly it escalated. For me it will boil down to this, was deadly force necessary? My initial opinion, and strictly an opinion, is it wasn’t. Of course, this does show the importance of compliance. Mr. Brooks is alive today if he complies

So, how are those new gun laws in New Zealand working out?

About as well as can be expected

American gun control activists looked at New Zealand’s response to the Christchurch massacre with a high degree of awe. They desperately want the United States to follow that lead after the next mass shooting.

They applauded Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern for her quick response, but what really happened was more of a knee-jerk reaction. She responded with liberal reflexes rather than taking the time to look at the situation rationally, and she’s been applauded by gun grabbers for it.

However, one thing we on the pro-gun side said would happen in response seems to have come to pass.

New figures obtained by RNZ show last year had the highest rates of gun crime and deaths involving firearms for nearly 10 years.

The figures, obtained from police under the Official Information Act, show the rates of gun crime went up in both 2018 and 2019.

Last year, there were 3540 occasions where an offender was found with a gun.

And in both of the last two years, the rate of deadly incidents involving a firearm was the highest it had been since 2009.

The number of guns seized by police is also on the rise, up almost 50 percent on five years earlier at 1263 last year.

Once again leftism not only fails to fix the problem it is supposed to fix, it actually makes it worse

Why are Democrat run cities so often violent hell holes?

Fritz gives the example of Baltimore

Jazz Shaw at Hot Air, Baltimore Democrats Don’t Want Larry Hogan To Rein In Gun Violence

It’s no secret that the city of Baltimore, Maryland is in the middle of a violent crime crisis and has been for several years now. 2019 saw a new record in the per capita murder rate and 2020 isn’t starting off any better, with the city averaging more than one murder per day. Governor Larry Hogan has promised to do something about it and this month he unveiled a new crime bill that would finally toughen up penalties for gun crimes and close the revolving door of gang members parading in and out of jail.

So what have the Democrats in the legislature done about it? They’re preparing to shoot it down, of course. And the interim mayor of Charm City is backing them up. (CBS Baltimore)

Citing their opposition to mandatory minimum sentences, Democrats in the Maryland General Assembly say they are unlikely to pass Gov. Larry Hogan’s top priority this session ― the Violent Firearms Offender Act ― infuriating the governor who alleges lawmakers aren’t taking shootings in Baltimore seriously.
In an interview with The Baltimore Sun on Wednesday, Hogan argued that lawmakers who don’t support his legislation are out of touch with the views of most Marylanders and should step down from their leadership posts. On a table in his office at the State House, he spread out his internal polling results that show residents overwhelmingly want “tougher sentences for violent offenders who commit crimes with guns.”

And, I think anyone with a grip on reality knows, NOT punishing violent people will get you more and worse violence. Of course taking guns from law abiding people is right up their alley.

Moral retardation on full blast

Again, allow me to note that some people should be drug behind a truck

Take this evil waste of skin for example

 There is another troubling animal abuse case of Floyd County.

We first reported on twenty horses deliberately shot and killed.

Now comes this, Kentucky State Police say 38-year-old Jonathan D. Watkins is accused of killing his neighbor’s dogs and ‘skinning’ them.

We must warn you the details are graphic.

It was December 23rd when state troopers responded to a complaint in the David community of Floyd County.

The caller told them his neighbor, Jonathan Watkins, had killed his two dogs, skinned them, and had the skins and carcasses hanging off his front porch.

OK, let me amend my preferred punishment for this freak show. He should be beset by rabid dogs, and then by an angry mother bear, THEN, get the truck!

So, I expect all crime to be legalized soon

Leftist stoopidity on display!

Atlanta has decided its cops will no longer chase subjects. For safety, don’t you know. Second City Cop: No Chasing – Ever.

Chief Shields seems to know exactly what’s what and which way the wind is blowing, and she’s laying it right at the feet of the judicial system not holding anyone accountable.

And Chief Shields recognizes that this change will probably lead to an increase in crime. That seems to be what the politicians want, with these policy changes.

And, I remind you that the same nitwits who embrace “social justice” also embrace taking guns from the law-abiding. HMMMMMM, wonder where that will lead, yeah, nowhere good!

Want more violent crime? Vote for Democrats

Wheelgun looks at Baltimore and Chicago and finds lots of gun control laws, lots of soft on crime Democrats, and, yes LOTS more violent crimes

But hey, they are woke. Or something. The bloody toll from Baltimore, Chicago’s soft-on-crime mindset. And don’t expect the national media to reflect on how two Democratic-run cities have become such crime disasters.

There were two mass-shootings on Sunday: One in Chicago, the other in Baltimore. So what is the cause?

In Baltimore the poverty rate is down, unemployment is down. In Chicago, public school spender (per pupil) increased a bit more than 20 percent in the past decade.

So, why the crime?

The more likely culprits of elevated violence: (1) sharp cuts in incarceration, (2) prosecutorial retreat from low-level offenses and drug laws and (3) the alienation of each city’s most capable guardians: cops.

A third of Baltimore homicide suspects in 2017 committed their alleged offenses while on probation or parole, despite having an average of nearly 10 prior arrests. In Chicago, those arrested for shootings or homicides in 2015-16 had an average of 12 prior arrests.

This news ties in with the increased calls for disarming, or even eliminating police entirely, ending cash bail, and so on. The war on law enforcement rolls on, with very predictable results

When the Hell are we going to lock up violent felons?

Is common sense dead? The Other McCain gives us the latest example that when it comes to politicians who write laws it may be.

We reported earlier this month on the disappearance of Aniah Blanchard, a 19-year-old college student who was reportedly abducted in Auburn, Alabama, on Oct. 23. Blanchard is the step-daughter of UFC fighter Walt Harris, and on Nov. 7, police arrested suspect Ibraheem Yazeed, 29, who had fled to Pensacola, Florida. As I reported on Nov. 9 (“Why Wasn’t Ibraheem Yazid in Jail?”), the suspect had a lengthy record of violent crime and yet had been released on bail after a near-fatal attack on an elderly man in January. On the night she went missing, Aniah reportedly told a friend that she was going to meet a guy she had connected with via a dating app, and now police say they have recovered her remains about 30 miles from where she disappeared

If this piece of filth had been locked the Hell away, as he should have been, this girl would be alive, her family would not be going through the anguish they must now endure. Tell me, how hard is it for legislators to write laws that lock people like this evil bastard away?

The Other McCain has reported how evil this man was, yet, he was out walking around because “social justice”

As I mentioned in an update last night (“Police Arrest Ibraheem Yazeed, 29, in Disappearance of Aniah Blanchard, 19”), the suspect has a lengthy criminal record — apparently his entire adult life has been devoted to perpetrating crime — and yet, for some reason, Yazeed managed to get bonded out after being arrested for a savage crime that nearly killed an old man. What is happening in Alabama’s criminal justice system that would result in such a dangerous person being turned loose on the streets? I don’t know, but I suspect it might have something to do with The Bail Project, a Soros-funded operation I wrote about in April: “‘No One Could Have Predicted This Tragedy’ (But It Was Predictable).”

If what I suspect is true, here we have a young woman of color being victimized by a serial offender because turning violent criminals loose is what a bunch of idiot liberals consider “social justice.” People should be angry, and there needs to be some serious reporting on this. More violence against women that feminists won’t notice, for some reason.

Have I mentioned before how Leftism destroys everything it touches? Add this beautiful young girl, and her family to the list of destruction

Karma uses a shotgun to bring the pain to carjacking thug

One less evil person consuming oxygen? GOOD!

Via Bearing Arms

However, carjackers aren’t necessarily a particularly bright bunch. After all, it doesn’t take a master criminal to stick a gun in someone’s face and take their car. This isn’t Gone In 60 Seconds we’re talking about here.

No, it’s a violent assault on an individual with the potential for the shedding of innocent blood.

Which is why it’s absolutely hilarious when the problem sort of takes care of itself.

A carjacker died after he accidentally blasted himself in the chest while trying to smash a window with the butt of his shotgun, an inquest has heard.

Officers investigating the death of Reece Ramsey-Johnson said they were satisfied there was ‘no third party involvement’ as they closed the probe into his killing.

Witnesses who saw the 22-year-old dying from gunshot wounds in the street outside a Lloyds bank in Sydenham on Sunday, September 8, said his own gun may have gone off when he used to to hit a car window.

Yes, this did happen in the UK, all those gun bans there really stopped this guy

Oh that nutty Governor Newsome of Marxifornia……… UPDATED!!

Gov Asshat
RICH PEDRONCELLI AP

Whenever I see Newsom’s image on TV, I know that some form of idiocy is about to be reported. I know this because, well, Governor Newsom is the walking definition of a knuckle-dragging Marxist. And, again, just this morning, Governor Goober has come through once again 

California Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, on Tuesday signed a bill that no longer requires any “able-bodied person 18 years of age or older” in the state to help an officer who requests assistance during an arrest.

The Sacramento Bee reported that the old law, the California Posse Comitatus Act of 1872, was common in the country’s early days, but Sen. Bob Hertzberg, a Los Angeles Democrat who sponsored the bill, called the old law a “vestige of a bygone era.” The law was employed to help catch runaway slaves, the report said.

The old law made it a misdemeanor that carried a fine of up to $1,000 for refusing to help a police officer who requested assistance during an arrest.

The report said Newsom did not issue a statement after signing the bill.

The Left REALLY has it in for law enforcement it seems. What good will come from this bill? Maybe more bad people will evade arrest, and commit more felonies? Maybe they will commit violent felonies which Gov. Newsom can blame on guns. He certainly loves doing that. Maybe Marxifornia can then pass  more gun control measures even though the many gun control acts they have passed have done nothing to stop mass shootings, armed robberies, etc.

UPDATE! Governor Newsom also bans schools from disciplining students 

California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) has signed off on legislation banning schools in the state from suspending students for disruptive behavior.

Senate Bill 419, signed into law by Newsom on Monday, will amend the California Education Code to prohibit public and charter schools in the state from suspending students in grades 4-8 for “disrupting school activities or otherwise willfully defying the valid authority of those school personnel engaged in the performance of their duties.”

Existing law already prohibited schools from suspending or recommending expulsion for students enrolled in kindergarten or in grades 1-3 for such actions.

The legislation is slated to take effect at the start of July 2020 and will prohibit the suspension of students in grades 6-8 , specifically, for such acts until July 1, 2025.

Without discipline, and respect for teacher authority, a school cannot teach the students that DO behave. But, social justice warriors like Newsom care not because DISPROPORTIONATE

“Because it is so subjective, suspensions based on Section 48900(k) raise serious concerns about their disproportionate impact on students of color and other vulnerable student groups- including students with disabilities and/or those who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT), and/or gender non-conforming,” the organization said.

The group added that research “confirms that there is even greater disproportionality for students in these groups suspended for low level, subjective offenses, like defiance/disruption, compared to higher level, more objective offenses.”

In short, this bill does not ban punishment for the good students, who are punished by having to tolerate the crap the unruly students engage in does it? No, of course not, good kids just have to put up with it. Guess their “privilege” must be held against them

Yes, some people deserve to be mauled by a rabid Kodiak Bear, or maybe a pack of wolves

This asshole would be one of them

A Richmond man pleaded guilty Wednesday to torturing to death a pit bull, named Tommie by rescuers. 

Jyahshua A. Hill, 20, of the 1300 block of St. Peter Street, was arrested about three months after Tommie was found by the Richmond Fire Department in Abner Clay Park, less than a mile from where Hill lived.

The dog, a male brindle, had been tied to a chain-link fence, doused with a flammable liquid and set ablaze, Richmond police said. Tommie died Feb. 15, five days after he was discovered in the park. He suffered burns to 40 percent of his body, according to the Richmond Animal Care and Control, which cared for the dog.

Seriously, what a waste of skin

One reason for high violent crime rates in some cities

Lax sentencing, “bail reform” and other social justice fails. Zendo Deb takes a peek

First up – bail reform. Man charged with robbing 12-year-old & burglarizing home while free on 3 recognizance bonds AND court supervision.

So far this year, [the miscreant in question has] been charged with felony burglary, released on a recognizance bond, charged with criminal damage to property and assault, released on another recognizance bond, charged with battery, released on a third recognizance bond, charged with battery and obstruction of identification, released on a fourth recognizance bond, and pleaded guilty to battery in exchange for a sentence of six months court supervision. And that was all before the Fourth of July.

Then there is an actual lack of sentencing. Court update: Prolific bike thief pleads guilty to 12 burglaries; Another man gets 3 years for slashing teen’s throat.

Let’s concentrate on the throat-slashing, though the other examples (more than the two listed in the headline) are also good examples.

A convicted felon who was accused of slashing a 17-year-old boy’s throat because the teen and his girlfriend were “taking up too much sidewalk” has been sentenced to three years in prison.

Chevazz Campbell, the victim, and a 16-year-old girl were walking on the 400 block of West Roosevelt last October when Campbell allegedly became enraged that the teens were walking side-by-side. After insisting that the couple was taking up too much space on the sidewalk, Campbell pulled out a box cutter and cut the boy’s throat, prosecutors said.

Three aggravated battery charges were condensed into one by the judge. He was sentenced to three years, and given credit for time served (230+ days) They don’t say when he will be available for parole, but in less than a year I’m guessing.

In other words leftism is at work in many of the most violent cities, and guess which party runs these cities, go on, guess. Yes it does start with a D!

If you want to blame someone for the Philly attack on cops…………..

NRA? No! Gun owners? No! Those who defend the right to own firearms? No!

Activist Philly DA who loves turning out violent felons? YEP!! The Other McCain explains

Two years ago, left-wing billionaire George Soros wrote a $1.45 million check to Larry Krasner’s campaign for district attorney of Philadelphia. This is a gigantic sum to spend on a local election, and enabled Krasner to defeat six rivals in the 2017 Democrat primary, then coast to a landslide victory in the general election. Krasner ran as the anti-police candidate, and has made it his official policy to turn dangerous criminals loose on the streets of Philadelphia. One of the beneficiaries of Krasner’s policies, Maurice Hill, had an extensive criminal record — drug charges, aggravated assault, perjury, fleeing and eluding, escape and weapons offenses — before he engaged in a shootout Wednesday in North Philadelphia that wounded six cops. This incident resulted in a statement from Trump-appointed U.S. Attorney William McSwain:

What I witnessed last night was true heroism by the Philadelphia police. But the crisis was precipitated by a stunning disrespect for law enforcement — a disrespect so flagrant and so reckless that the suspect immediately opened fire on every single officer within shooting distance. Only by the grace of God did they survive.
Where does such disrespect come from?
There is a new culture of disrespect for law enforcement in this City that is promoted and championed by District Attorney Larry Krasner — and I am fed up with it.
It started with chants at the DA’s victory party — chants of “F*** the police” and “No good cops in a racist system.”
We’ve now endured over a year and a half of the worst kinds of slander against law enforcement — the DA routinely calls police and prosecutors corrupt and racist, even “war criminals” that he compares to Nazis.
This vile rhetoric puts our police in danger. It disgraces the Office of the District Attorney. And it harms the good people in the City of Philadelphia and rewards the wicked.
The alleged shooter last night, Maurice Hill, is a previously convicted felon with a long rap sheet. We have plenty of criminal laws in this City — but what we don’t have is robust enforcement by the District Attorney. Instead, among other things, we have diversionary programs for gun offenses, the routine downgrading of charges for violent crime, and entire sections of the criminal code that are ignored.
The criminal laws in this City — and especially the existing gun laws and drug laws — should be aggressively enforced in order to protect the public and the police. My Office is doing all that we can. We have prosecuted 70% more violent crime cases this year than we did last year, in response to the District Attorney’s lawlessness. But it is now time for the District Attorney and his enablers to stop making excuses for criminals. It is time for accountability. It is time to support law enforcement and to put the good people of this City first.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office, in conjunction with the Philadelphia police and our federal partners, is investigating the horrible events of last night and we are considering all options at our disposal. We will do everything that we can to support our brothers and sisters in the Philadelphia Police Department and ensure justice is done.
To the officers involved last night — those who were wounded and those who rushed to defend them — and to their families, I say thank you. The whole City thanks you. We owe you more than we can ever repay.

Note please that NPE of this is even being mentioned by the ledia, or the Cult of Gun Control. All they can do is chant “sensible gun laws” while drooling on themselves

Jeffrey Epstein commits suicide in jail

Not that shocking considering he likely knew that he was finished

Jeffrey Epstein, the disgraced financier who was indicted on sex trafficking charges, died Friday night by suicide in his Manhattan jail cell, according to multiple reports.

Law enforcement officials told ABC News that Epstein, 66, died by suicide in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center overnight, though the exact timing and circumstances surrounding his death were not immediately clear.

For God’s sake can we STOP letting murderers out of prison?

Sorry, but some crimes need to be punished so that the perpetrator NEVER gets out to do it again

The feeble old man walking is usually not someone you have to worry about day-to-day. The young guy who is looking for trouble might be another matter, but not the old man.

That line of thinking impacted a judge’s decision to parole a convicted murderer. He was old and, therefore, harmless.

Unfortunately, he wasn’t.

A man who served decades in prison for stabbing his wife 14 times in front of her daughter was convicted Wednesday in a nearly identical crime — stabbing a woman at least 11 times while her twin children watched.

Albert Flick, 77, who was previously deemed too old to be a threat by a judge, was convicted in the 2018 death of Kimberly Dobbie. Jurors deliberated less than an hour before reaching its guilty verdict.

Both the attack, which was in front of a laundromat in broad daylight, and Flick’s purchase two days earlier of two knives, were caught on surveillance video.

Sick old bastard should have rotted in jail, but a judge thought he was “too old”

To make matters worse is that it wasn’t like Flick didn’t give off warning signs. There was reason to recognize that he was a violent man with violent tendencies besides his first murder.

In 2010, he was sentenced again for assaulting another woman. The judge at the time ignored the recommendation of the prosecutor for a longer sentence, saying Flick would not be a threat because of his age and it didn’t make sense to keep him incarcerated. He was released and moved to Lewiston in 2014.

So, he served four years? FOUR! For murder? God help us

The first job of government…….

Is to protect the citizens. And allowing felons to walk the streets, ain’t cutting it

Law and order have disappeared. First the story: Homeless ex-con ambushes ‘random’ 63-year-old woman with bottle, California cops say.

“He jumped out and kind of like punched her in the head, and that kind of took her down,” said witness Henry Kwan, KCBS reported. “Then he started punching her in the head and kicking her multiple times — maybe 10 to 20 times — and she was screaming for help.”

Eventually he started using a broken bottle as a weapon.

Next up, we examine the reaction of the good people of California. Did anyone race to her defense? Was anyone armed? Of course not! You are supposed to rely on The State for everything.

People working at nearby businesses heard the woman screaming for help and saw Ulloa kicking her in the head in an alley, the L.A. Daily News reported. They also called 911.

The woman who was attacked is in intensive care. The cops did arrest the guy, who has a criminal history and was on parole at the time of the attack.

He had six prior convictions, yet…………..

 

Yes,the death penalty is a just punishment for some

Feral Irishman highlights one such lowlife

5cd066ae57e93.image

NASHVILLE (WSMV) – Investigators have arrested a man after his wife found video on his phone of him sexually abusing her 5-year-old son, his stepson.

On May 5, the victim’s mother contacted police saying she found video from March 22 around 7:42 a.m. that showed Calvillo engaged in sex acts with the young boy. The details of the affidavit are too explicit to publish.

May this cretin rot in Hell

Evil, pure evil

Cadesha Bishop, 25, was arrested and charged with the murder of an older person at the Clark County Detention Center on May 6. Witnesses say Bishop had shoved 74-year-old Serge Fournier out the door of a bus in Las Vegas, causing him to hit his head on the ground. She allegedly offered no help to the injured man, according to the criminal complaint.

Fournier had commented Bishop should be “nicer” to other bus riders during the March 21 incident, according to an arrest report. She had allegedly been yelling profanities at other passengers immediately before Fournier was pushed as he tried to move past her with his walker. The arrest report says “his head landed approximately eight feet from the bus doorway,” according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Fournier told police responding to calls of a battered man about what happened as he bled from the head.

Are Democrats pro-crime?

If the question seems unfair, consider this from Pirates Cove

Democrats are good with assaulting the rights of law abiding American citizens. Illegal aliens must be protected at all times, though

(Daily Caller) The House Judiciary Committee passed legislation known as the Bipartisan Background Check Act Thursday that would mandate background checks on all gun sale transactions and most transfers in the United States.

“This is a bill that will expand criminal background checks to close the gun show loophole and close the Internet sale loophole,” Democrat Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries said of the bill.

With the support of five committee Republicans and after nine hours of debate, the bill passed 21 to 14. Republicans on the Committee attempted to amend the bill.

Democrats, however, voted down one such amendment that would notify ICE authorities when an illegal alien fails a background check to purchase a firearm.

St. Louis Police Officers Break Every Rule of Gun Safety, with predictable results

How foolish, or maybe reckless could they be?

ST. LOUIS — A male St. Louis police officer was charged Friday with involuntary manslaughter in the shooting death of a female officer during what was described as a deadly game with a revolver.

Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner announced the charge against Nathaniel Hendren, 29, in the death of 24-year-old Katlyn Alix, as they alleged played a game in which a revolver’s cylinder was emptied, one bullet put back and the two colleagues taking turns pointing at each other and pulling the trigger.

Alix was with two male officers at an apartment when she was killed just before 1 a.m. Thursday . A probable cause statement from police, provided by Gardner’s office, offered a chilling account of the dangerous game that led to her death.

I really have no words, I simply cannot grasp such stupidity
