Two White Gonzaga Students Face Possible Expulsion After Pulling Gun On Black Home Intruder

This is sick and sad; but because of the world in which we live; I might how this is going to turn out.

The Story:

The Victims – Erik Fagan and Dan McIntosh

On Friday a university discipline board decided to move forward with sanctions, including possible expulsion, for using the weapons. The students will learn in the near future about their future with the school. It all happened late in the night on October 24th when roommates Erik Fagan and Dan McIntosh were hanging out in their university owned apartment. 

The criminal – John Taylor

Taylor then attempted to force entry into the apartment. At that point McIntosh brandished his pistol. McIntosh has a concealed weapons permit for the gun and did not know it was in violation of policy at the time. Once Taylor saw the gun he left the property. McIntosh said Spokane Police took Taylor into custody after their report because he was wanted on a Department of Corrections warrant.

As much as I hate to say it; because the racial makeup of this incident, these two white victims are going to be the victims of a political correct society and will be charged and/or thrown out of school and their academic lives ruined. Because they dared to stand up to a black man and show him what happens, when you try to rob a white man in his own house.

Of course, I believe the University’s policy is also moronic as well. Banning guns in a university apartment is not the solution to the problem; it only creates an easy target for criminals; obviously as shown here.  However, because we live in a society that believes that gun control is the answer, due to Marxist indoctrination, these two chaps will end up have to go another university with this incident in their records. This my friends, is the great American tragedy of the ages.

Sherriff Nick Finch Acquitted

Remember Sherriff Nick Finch that I wrote about?

It appears that he has been acquitted.

The New American Reports: (H/T John Birch Society’s HQ)

Justice has been served.

Minutes after noon on Thursday, October 31, an eight-person jury acquitted Sheriff Nick Finch of both charges against him. Finch, the sheriff of Liberty County, Florida, was accused of official misconduct and falsifying records. Finch maintained that he was simply standing up for the right of the people to keep and bear arms as protected by the Second Amendment.

The jury agreed, reaching its verdict in fewer than 90 minutes. Within minutes of being found not guilty, Sheriff Finch spoke with Governor Rick Scott, who reinstated Finch within hours.

“Sheriff Nick Finch will be reinstated immediately,” said Governor Scott in a written statement. “I would like to thank the members of the jury in Liberty County for their service in this trial. I would also like to thank Interim Sheriff Buddy Money for his service to the state of Florida.”

It is ironic that Scott would thank the citizens of Liberty County for their service on the jury when it was Scott’s removal of Sheriff Finch in the first place that served to effectively disenfranchise those very citizens.

[…..]

There is an additional disturbing aspect of the case not being commented on by other news outlets. Imagine that Sheriff Finch had released a man arrested and jailed for having openly preached Christianity in a public place. Would Governor Scott have been so hasty to remove Finch from office? Why would the rights protected by the Second Amendment be subordinate to those guaranteed by the First Amendment?

The protection of each of our God-given rights is as crucial to the perpetuation of liberty as any other. Freedom and self-government are threatened just as much by deprivation of the right to keep and bear arms as by a revocation of the right to exercise religion.

Governor Scott’s persecution and prosecution of a sheriff standing up for the Second Amendment rights of citizens of his county is particularly questionable given the hostile climate that threatens the right to keep and bear arms nationally.

It’s over now, though, and all is forgiven. The fact remains that Finch suffered substantial financial setbacks as a result of his removal and at press time, it was unclear whether Sheriff Finch would receive back pay for the four months he was suspended.

A defense fund was established to help Finch defray the cost of mounting a defense. It is a shame, however, that a good man, a duly elected, liberty minded lawman, was forced into this position by a few connected men and politicians eager to lean on an outsider.

“I am so grateful for all the support from patriots all across the country,” Sheriff Finch told The New American after he was acquitted. “I am thrilled to be back to work.”

I am glad to see that the court made a good decision. I was not sure about the details; apparently the Court didn’t see where the law was broken. I trust the decision. 

False Flag? — Gunman opens fire at LAX, TSA Agent killed

Funny how these things just….happen.

The Story:

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A TSA agent was killed and several other people were injured Friday in a shooting at Terminal 3 at LAX, police said.

CBS News’ John Miller said the unidentified suspect entered the terminal wearing camouflage and opened fire around 9:20 a.m.

Preliminary indications show that he was targeting TSA employees, according to Miller.

The suspect pulled an assault rifle out of his bag, began to open fire in the terminal and proceeded to the TSA screening area, where he was able to gain access to the airport itself, according to Chief Patrick Gannon of Los Angeles World Airports.

Personnel officers tracked the man, who was able to travel as far as a Burger King restaurant. Officers then engaged in gunfire with him and were subsequently able to take him into custody, he said.

“We believe there was a lone shooter…only one person that was armed in this incident,” Gannon said.

Say uncle wonders along the same lines.  Update #3: and links back here… Thank You!

Memeorandum has the blogger round up and I am not there, as usual.

Update #1: Suspect Named: (via Mediaite)

Update #2 But of course….

The Story via Mediaite:

NBC News reporter Pete Williams identified the suspect in Friday’s LAX shooting as 23-year-old Paul Anthony Ciancia who, according to authorities, had literature on him that suggests “strong anti-government views.” Williams noted, however, that NBC News could not confirm that Ciancia was in any federal or state database or that he had been listed as a potential violent anti-government threat.

Williams reported that Ciancia was born in 1990 and is an American citizen. The motive for why he shot multiple people at the Los Angeles airport, killing one, remains unconfirmed.

“We’re told, that he had strong anti-government views,” Williams reported. “That’s based on some written material that we’re told he was carrying, that they found on him after he was shot by L.A. airport police.”

Williams noted that the shooter may have had some connection with the Transportation Safety Administration and had targeted TSA agents as his victims.

“So, it would seem to be a combination of anti-government views and some kind of grudge against the TSA,” Williams said of the shooter’s motivation.

He added that no database indicates that Ciancia was on a watch list and the shooters home has not been searched.

Why thank you Mr. Ciancia, you just handed the US Democrats and the Democrats in California a golden goose egg. :mad:

Mixed feelings on the Florida Sheriff Nick Finch case

I happen to run across this story and I am going to link to it; I am not going to quote it here, because it requires you to read the entire thing. The link below will open in a new window.

Please go check out Trial of Liberty County, Florida Sheriff Nick Finch Begins at the New American. 

Okay, here is my feelings on what I just read. On one hand, I feel that the second amendment is an important thing, and I am fully aware of the attempts by the liberal left to suppress that right by means of local and state regulation; as well as federal regulations. I believe that to be unconstitutional.

However, on the other hand; I am also someone who believes in rule of law. If the person that was stopped and was carrying such guns —- and that person did not have the proper permits to own and carry said guns, then the officer who arrested and booked this man, was simply doing his job.  I do not believe that being a second amendment supporter and being a sheriff of a town, entitles anyone of any office to knowingly break the law. Because that my friends is corruption. Anytime that any one of public office uses their position to grant favoritism, that is cronyism and this case, this man was caught.

If Nick Finch and his supporters want to see the law changed; then they should pressure their local legislators to get the law changed. What they should not do, is use their office of power to make political statements, such as releasing someone on a legit charge; that is no way to make changes in a law.

There is right way and a wrong way to handle situations like this; and it seems to me, that this man did things the wrong way.

Video: Sorry, but this is NOT “standing your ground” in Florida

It’s not even close.

The video:

Notice how many shots rang out?

Now for what this mental midget did: (via Florida Today)

Attorneys for a man who police said shot three people at the culmination of a neighborhood feud have filed a motion demanding a jury determine whether William T. Woodward’s murder charges should be dismissed under Florida’s Stand Your Ground law.

The motion says Woodward had been the target of a variety of threats and “exercised his right under Florida law to defend himself and his family that night.”

“It’s probably best that you don’t make threats against people, they may take you seriously,” said Robert Berry, an attorney representing Woodward.

Officials say Woodward snuck up on a Labor Day barbecue and opened fire at about 12:30 a.m. on Sept. 3, 2012. Police arrived and found Gary Lee Hembree, Roger Picior and Bruce Timothy Blake all had been shot. Hembree and Picior died of their injuries. Blake, who was hit 11 times, survived.

Woodward, 44, is accused of two counts of first-degree felony murder and attempted first-degree felony murder.

Before the incident, police had responded numerous times to the ongoing dispute, according to a release. Woodward and Hembree went to court to discuss the dispute before Judge John D. Moxley. Moxley did not issue an injunction.

The motion filed by Woodward’s attorneys says in the hours prior to the shooting, all three men were yelling at Woodward and that this type of behavior had been ongoing for over a month.

In the hours before the shooting, the men called him names, and said “Come on boys. We’re going to get him. We’re going to get him, all three of us.”

Florida law allows people to use deadly force to protect against “imminent death or…prevent the imminent commission of a forcible felony.”

Basically, what happened was this: This dude snuck up on these people in full Military fatigues and opened fire on a family and some friends —- while they were eating. The only thing this slime ball piece of crap needs to be doing, is to become the resident “pivot man” at the prison circle jerk. :mad:

and that ain’t the worst of it, there is this too:

Woodward’s attorneys argue that an attack could have been expected based on the words of his neighbors. They go on to mention the “Bush Doctrine,” a concept that justifies a pre-emptive attack based on the need to defend from a threat.

The “Bush Doctrine”?!?!? WOW. Just…wow. :shock:

Of course, there is this:

Melbourne attorney Kepler Funk said it was “valid” that Woodward would want an independent jury to make this decision rather than a judge, but felt it was unlikely the court would convene one for this pretrial hearing.

“It’s novel for sure, and I’m all for thinking outside the box, so I commend him for that,” he said. “I don’t know the court’s going to grant the motion though.”

In other words, this idiot has a snowball’s chance in hell in getting his case thrown out. I do not give a flying flip what someone is doing to you; teasing you, calling your momma a hoe or whatever — you cannot just sneak up on someone and empty a clip on them. That is not how it works. What works is IGNORING the persons doing this or MOVE!

I swear, I am seriously starting to wonder about people in society today! :roll:

Photo: What happens when you try to attack someone with a gun

k-bigpic

This right here is a picture of a black thug punk, who decided to attack and try to beat up a Latino man, who happened to be a legal gun owner. This photo ought to be showed in every classroom in this Country. This is what happens to a black man or anyone else, who decides that the “thug” lifestyle is a cool thing to live.  I have one thing to say about this photo:  Thank YOU JESUS for the second amendment and for the God-given right to defend oneself. Trayvon Martin thought it would be cool to try and attack someone; and he lost the bet. May others learn from this mistake.

I am all for children being protected at school…. But…..

I do believe that this is just a wee bit overboard. :shock:

The story:

OWINGS, MD — The father of a middle schooler in Calvert County, Md. says his 11-year-old son was suspended for 10 days for merely talking about guns on the bus ride home.

Bruce Henkelman of Huntingtown says his son, a sixth grader at Northern Middle School in Owings, was talking with friends about the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre when the bus driver hauled him back to school to be questioned by the principal, Darrel Prioleau.

“The principal told me that with what happened at Sandy Hook if you say the word ‘gun’ in my school you are going to get suspended for 10 days,” Henkelman said in an interview with WMAL.com.

So what did the boy say?  According to his father, he neither threatened nor bullied anyone.

“He said, I wish I had a gun to protect everyone. He wanted to defeat the bad guys. That’s the context of what he said,” Henkelman said. “He wanted to be the hero.”

The boy was questioned by the principal and a sheriff’s deputy, who also wanted to search the family home without a warrant, Henkelman said. “He started asking me questions about if I have firearms, and [the deputy said] he’s going to have to search my house.  Search my house?  I just wanted to know what happened.”

No search was performed, and the deputy left Henkelman’s home after the father answered questions in a four-page questionnaire issued by the Sheriff’s Office.

Look, nobody likes the idea of any kids being shot or guns being brought to school by kids, — period, end of story. But, merely talking about guns?!?! I tend to think that is just a little over the top. This is not nazi Germany or the communist soviet empire. We do have a right to freedom of speech.

Second of all, now don’t think that I am going to drone on like some Alex Jones reject about how this is some sort of conspiracy by the Obama Administration to take all of our guns or something silly like that, sorry, I don’t play that game here.  If anything at all, it is overly cautious school board, who is reacting to the recent shootings that have taken place over the past few months. I can see why they did it; but, I think the principal and teachers went a bit overboard.

There is nothing wrong with trying to be safe, but being paranoid can be very dangerous itself. Plus too, censoring kids speech just makes you look like fascists.

Oh and too, searching a house, without a warrant?!?!?  I don’t think so! You have probable cause, and a warrant signed by a judge —- or you take your silly donut eating pig ass back to the station where you belong. :mad:

This whole trampling on the rights of the American people for the so-called “greater good”, just pisses me the hell off. :mad:

Good Question….

This is why I love the gun-grabbing left; because their hypocrisy stinks to the high heavens. Just like the Republicans and their big-government statist policies.

Anyhow, sellout blogger, Glenn Reynolds, himself quite the statist hypocrite; notes the following:

HYPOCRISY: Hey, why does Piers Morgan have photo with gun-loving, violence-glorifying Snoop Dogg as Twitter profile?

Hypocrite much, Mr. Morgan?

Again, this is why I love being an independent politically, (Who does lean to the right slightly, but I digress.)  and being a bit of a free-thinker; I see the hypocrisy of both sides. This is a perfect example of that very thing.
