From the LVRJ:
A Metro helicopter went down on a Las Vegas street and has blocked an intersection.
The helicopter went down about 1:29 p.m. Wednesday near the intersection of Bonanza Road and 23rd Street, near Eastern Avenue, police said. It wasn’t clear if it was a crash or hard landing.
Two officers have been taken to University Medical Center, but there conditions were not immediately available. No one else was reported injured.

Fun In The Snow

For only the 2nd time since I moved to the Desert Southwest (Las Vegas/Kingman) I have been in a snowstorm.  The first one was in Vegas in 2008 and now today.  Being from Wisconsin, I should be used to this kind of weather, but sadly, I am now used to the heat.
But the boy and his dog had their fun:

A Funny For A Cold Winter's Day

A wife texts her husband on a cold winter’s morning: “Windows frozen.” Her husband texts back: “Pour some lukewarm water over it.” The wife texts back 5 minutes later: “Computer completely messed up now.” -
http://www.commonsenseevaluation.com/2014/12/30/joke-day-frozen-windows/#sthash.k2AB4Jig.dpbs
And this: Last year, a guy went to a doctor because he was losing weight. He found out he had a tapeworm, and was instructed by the doctor to bring a muffin, a Twinkie and a cookie with him on his next visit. When he was being examined the doctor shoved the muffin, the Twinkie, and finally the cookie up the guy’s a**. The patient protested, but the doctor calmed him down, saying it was part of the therapy. This treatment continued for several weeks and every time the doctor shoved a muffin, a Twinkie and a cookie up his a**. Finally, after many visits, the Doctor instructed the patient to bring a muffin, a Twinkie and a mallet for the next visit. The day arrived and this time the doctor shoved only the muffin and the Twinkie up the patient’s a**.After a few minutes the tapeworm appeared out of his a**hole and demanded, “Where’s my cookie!?” WHAM!!! - http://www.commonsenseevaluation.com/#sthash.vaQB0DyZ.dpuf

But He Was Suuch A Good Man

From Philly.com:
She added: "The bottom line is, Angel Suarez is a stand-up guy. He's an honorable man. He's got all the class in the word. I don't know what happened."
So, what did Mr. Suarez do?
Police said a neighbor first saw Suarez masturbating on her deck before he broke through her sliding glass door. She fled to another apartment, and Suarez then jumped out of her second-floor window, police said. 
Suarez then allegedly broke into another apartment and assaulted two people inside before one of them shot him twice. The struggle with Suarez continued until officers arrived and subdued him, police said. Suarez faces charges of burglary and assault.
Yeah, but was such a nice guy.
Drugs, perhaps?


Snow Update

Las Vegas is not going to get a lot of snow but may get an inch or 3.
In Northern Arizona, where I live, we are going to get hard as the low pressure system is going to go right over Northern AZ.
From the NWS: WINTER STORM WARNING NOW IN EFFECT FROM 11 PM THIS EVENING TO
5 PM MST THURSDAY...
THE WINTER STORM WARNING IS NOW IN EFFECT FROM 11 PM THIS EVENING
TO 5 PM MST THURSDAY FOR MOHAVE COUNTY.
* TIMING: PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP AFTER MIDNIGHT IN
  SOUTHERN MOHAVE COUNTY AND THIS EVENING NEAR THE UTAH BORDER.
  GREATEST ACCUMULATIONS WILL OCCUR WEDNESDAY INTO NEW YEARS DAY
  MORNING...THEN TAPER OFF.

Sadly, people don't know how to drive normally around here and in Vegas but you add in some snow and all hell is going to break loose.
But credit to Mohave County as they were repositioning their snow removal equipment and salt trucks this morning.

Big Mine Closing Update:

From the Kingman Daily Miner:
Bankrupt Mineral Park mine shut down operations Monday and some 400 to 500 workers were laid off just a few days after Christmas, an employee told the Daily Miner.
Phone calls to Vancouver, B.C.-based Mercator Minerals, parent company of Mineral Park Inc., were not returned.
Mineral Park, which is located about 15 miles north of Kingman east of U.S. 93, had been operating under Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization since August. The mine cut 10 percent of its workforce last year after missing deadlines on $4.8 million in payments.
In September, U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware ordered Mineral Park to set up a separate account of $1.04 million to continue utility service. That's roughly half of the mine's monthly utility bills, which include $1.3 million paid to BP Energy for natural gas, $503,299 to Unisource for mine site power and $103,805 to Pioneer Valley Water Co. for water.
  http://kdminer.com/main.asp?SectionID=1&SubSectionID=797&ArticleID=64272

People say they didn't see this coming, but about a month or so ago, there is another mine in Arizona that was heavily advertising for mine workers to go their mine.  I thought that was kind of strange, but apparently this company knew what was going on and was trying to poach some workers from the Mineral Park Mine.

Big Mine Closes In Kingman

From the LVRJ: Scores of workers were laid off at the Mineral Park mine about 12 miles north of Kingman. There was no statement or confirmation from Mercator Minerals but word of the layoffs spread from displaced workers.
Kingman Vice Mayor Mark Wimpee said he’d been told hundreds of employees were impacted by the layoffs that were announced Monday and effective immediately. Wimpee and Jen Miles, the Workforce Development Manager for Mohave County, said displaced workers surfaced quickly Monday to begin job searches with the city and county.
Miles said the county had not been able to pinpoint the number of workers being laid off. State Mine Inspector Joe Hart said the company notified his office that 350 workers were impacted by the decision to cease production and put the mine into a “care and maintenance” mode.
Hart said the company said expensive electricity was the primary reason for the shutdown of the copper, molybdenum and silver mine.
Both Wimpee and Miles said local government is trying to assist displaced workers. Miles said the county had already scheduled several two-hour training sessions next week to help laid-off miners find new jobs.  http://www.reviewjournal.com/news/nation-and-world/arizona-mine-closes-hundreds-lose-jobs
Information about the company and the mine are here: http://www.mercatorminerals.com/s/MineralParkMine.asp
The company is in bankruptcy and it is possible the mine is up for sale: Vancouver, BC, September 5, 2014 -- Mercator Minerals Ltd (TSX: ML) ("Mercator" or the "Company") announces, effective September 4, 2014, the resignation from the board of directors the following: John Bowles, D. Bruce McLeod, Stephen P. Quin, Robert J. Quinn, Daniel Tellechea and Ron Vankoughnett. Also resigning, effective September 4, 2014, are the Officers of the Company: D. Bruce McLeod, Michael Broch, Mark Distler and Marc Leblanc. All inquiries regarding the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act (Canada) proceedings should be directed to the Proposal Trustee at 604-640-3062. Court materials and other information about the proceedings will be available on the Proposal Trustee's website at: www.insolvencies.deloitte.ca/en-ca/Pages/mercator.aspx    http://www.mercatorminerals.com/s/NewsReleases.asp?ReportID=672953&_Type=News-Releases&_Title=Mercator-Minerals-Announces-Resignation-Of-Directors-And-Officers
The company is a Canadian company.
This is going to hurt Kingman and Mohave County big time as there are not that many full time, good paying jobs in the area.
And the daily paper in Kingman, the Kingman Daily Miner has totally missed this story.

Just Wondering

Would this would have happened if this was a gay wedding?
From Fox News:
Before they could say "I do," President Obama needed to play through. 
Two Army soldiers reportedly had to relocate their Hawaii wedding over the weekend so the commander-in-chief could play golf. 
Bloomberg reports that the Army captains, Natalie Heimel and Edward Mallue Jr., had planned to get married at the 16th tee box at Kaneohe Klipper Golf Course, on Marine Corps Base Hawaii, on Sunday. 
But just as they were finishing their wedding rehearsal on Saturday, they were told they'd have to move -- to accommodate the president's round the following day. 
"It was emotional, especially for her -- she's the bride and in less than 24 hours they had to change everything they had planned," Mallue's sister Jamie McCarthy told Bloomberg. 
The couple reportedly ended up moving to a lush site overlooking the 16th hole, which one of the wedding planners said was more secluded and prettier anyway. 
The White House may not have even known about the wedding in advance. 
And after Bloomberg asked the White House about the incident, Obama apparently tried to make it right. 
McCarthy told Bloomberg the president called the bride to apologize and congratulate them. "Made their day," she said.
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/12/29/soldiers-relocate-hawaii-wedding-so-obama-can-play-golf/
Obama may not have personally known, though who knows, but the White House personnel did know.
And they were to afraid or too stupid to tell him about the situation.  And Obama created that culture.
And if this was a gay marriage, I am sure the White House personnel would have made different plans for Obama.

Should Suh Be Suspended? Updated: Yep


The video is of Ndamukong Suh of the Detroit Lions stepping on Aaron Rodgers of the Packers.
It shows that Suh stepped on Rodgers 2 times and Suh never looked down or turn around to see what or who he stepped on.
The play was also a touchdown play on Rodgers pass.
Update from ESPN:
The Detroit Lions and Ndamukong Suh have been informed that the defensive tackle will be suspended for this weekend's wild-card playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys.
Suh's punishment comes a day after he stepped on the leg of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Suh "unnecessarily stepped on [the] opponent's unprotected leg as he lay on the ground unable to protect himself," according to a statement released by the NFL.
Suh is appealing the suspension and his appeal will be heard by Ted Cottrell.
If Suh's appeal is denied, it would mean Detroit would be without both of its first-round defensive tackle selections. Coach Jim Caldwell said Monday it would take "a miracle" for defensive tackle Nick Fairley to play against the Cowboys. Fairley has not played or practiced since injuring his knee against Atlanta in Week 8.  http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/12093617/ndamukong-suh-detroit-lions-suspended-playoff-game
Good bye to a dirty player for at least 1 game.

Rare: A Really Honest Judge

From the Kingman Daily Miner: An accused murderer who has been prone to courtroom outbursts was deemed competent to stand trial Tuesday at a hearing the defendant did not attend.
Robert John Adkins, 52, stands accused of beating to death his roommate Michael Sudkamp, to whom he was a caregiver, on Christmas Day in 2013....

(Judge Steven) Conn said he was torn over the issue, wondering out loud what harm it would do to send him to the state hospital "to make him a nice person," particularly when Adkins poor behavior could influence a jury's verdict.
"But then I think, shouldn't we do the same for more people? We have a lot of people who don't have mental illness. They're just jerks."
He also said once the case gets back on track that Adkins might cooperate with Rideout.
That doesn't mean he expects the defense attorney and Adkins to walk into court "holding hands and singing 'Kumbaya.' Should I take him to a hair stylist and buy him clothes? Should I buy him a copy of 'How to Win Friends and Influence People?'"
A few moments later, Conn said society might be better off in general "if we just medicated the hell out of everybody and eliminated all the peaks and valleys and we'd all be better husbands and wives."
He found Adkins competent and set a Feb. 3 trial date.

http://kdminer.com/main.asp?SectionID=1&SubSectionID=797&ArticleID=64241
A judge that doesn't sugar coat it and is brutally honest about life and a sense of humor.

Truth Hurts?

From the NY Daily News: A Ferguson Police Department spokesman has been put on unpaid leave after calling a destroyed Michael Brown memorial "a pile of trash."
Timothy Zoll faces disciplinary proceedings for his comments following a car plowing into a makeshift memorial to the slain black teen Dec. 19, city officials said Saturday.
Zoll told the Washington Post, "I don't know that a crime has occurred…But a pile of trash in the middle of the street? The Washington Post is making a call over this?"
Zoll initially said he had been misquoted, prompting the department to defend him in interviews. He later admitted to the remarks, according to city officials.
"The City of Ferguson wants to emphasize that negative remarks about the Michael Brown memorial do not reflect the feelings of the Ferguson Police Department and are in direct contradiction to the efforts of City officials to relocate the memorial to a more secure location," the city said in a statement.  http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/ferguson-unpaid-leave-brown-memorial-comments-article-1.2058992
Yes, people trying to honor Michael Brown with a memorial, the memorial is a bunch of trash.
Michael Brown was a bully thug who robbed a store, beat up the owner of the store while high on drugs.
Then he tried to bully a police officer, attacked the cop, injured the cop and would not retreat.
Thankfully, Brown was shot and killed and the cop lived to see another day.  The good guy lived and the thug was killed.
So, yes, Brown's memorial was a bunch of trash and the cop who said it was trash was speaking the truth and those offended, are morons.

Packers NFC North Champs


From ESPN: A heating pad wrapped around his sore left calf, Aaron Rodgers could only watch helplessly on television monitors in the locker room as the Detroit Lions surged closer to his Green Bay Packers.
There was only one place that he wanted to be -- back on the turf with the rest of the Packers while they tried to secure a fourth straight NFC North title.
Green Bay's franchise quarterback is limping into the playoffs with a smile. Rodgers threw two touchdown passes to Randall Cobb, Eddie Lacy gashed Detroit's defense for 100 yards, and the Packers celebrated another division championship with a 30-20 victory Sunday.
Rodgers will appreciate a week off after the win, as the Packers (12-4) earned a bye. Detroit (11-5) starts the postseason at Dallas next Sunday. Green Bay will next play on the following Sunday.
"It's clearly an MVP performance -- another MVP performance -- by Aaron Rodgers," coach Mike McCarthy said. Rodgers won the award in 2011.
Rodgers was carted to the locker room after tossing his first score to Cobb late in the second quarter. He tweaked the calf during last week's win at Tampa Bay.
This injury came in a different spot in the calf, Rodgers said. He came up limping again.
In the locker room while getting treatment, Rodgers said he was thinking about "if I could finagle myself to go back in the game."
He hobbled back on to the field in the third quarter with the game tied at 14.
"I just felt like if I got in there, it might give us a little jolt," Rodgers said.
The jolt soon followed. A seven-play, 60-yard drive ended with a 13-yard score to Cobb for a 21-14 lead. The Packers didn't look back.
Rodgers plunged across the goal line from 1 yard with 8:45 left to help Green Bay regain a two-touchdown lead. "MVP! MVP" chanted adoring fans while light snow dusted Lambeau Field.
Rodgers finished 17 of 22 for 226 yards. He was out of the game for about a seven-minute stretch between the second and third quarters. In between, Calvin Johnson had touchdown catches of 4 and 20 yards on consecutive drives to help the Lions roar back from a 14-0 deficit.  http://scores.espn.go.com/nfl/recap?gameId=400554411
Rodgers has to be the MVP and the Packers are hungry.
Watch for a Seattle-Green Bay match up in the NFC championship game in Seattle- it will be epic.

AirAsia Crash Update

From the Singapore Strait Times:
The AirAsia Indonesia plane which went missing with 162 people on board en route for Singapore is likely at the bottom of the sea, Indonesia’s National Search and Rescue Agency chief said on Monday, as a multi-nation search operation resumed for a second day in the Java Sea.
“Based on the coordinates given to us and evaluation that the estimated crash position is in the sea, the hypothesis is the plane is at the bottom of the sea,” Bambang Soelistyo told a press conference. “That’s the preliminary suspicion and it can develop based on the evaluation of the result of our search.”
He said Indonesia did not have “the tools", such as submersible vehicles, required to retrieve the plane from the seabed, but it is reaching out to other countries for help if necessary.
“Due to the lack of technology that we have, I have coordinated with our foreign minister so we will borrow from other countries which have offered. They are the UK, France and US,” he said. 
 
The multi-nation search and locate operation resumed on Monday at  6.00 am (7am Singapore time) for the plane that went missing in the Java Sea after the pilot requested a change in course to avoid bad weather. No distress signal was sent.
Indonesian air force spokesman Hadi Cahyanto said that five aircraft were involved in the search, including two C130 military transport aircraft and a Boeing 737.
“We are focusing the search area in the waters on the eastern and northern part of Belitung island,” he said. "It is cloudy in some parts but still bright,” he added.
Flight QZ8501 went missing on Sunday morning while travelling from Surabaya to Singapore. The plane had 155 passengers and seven crew members. There were 155 Indonesians, one Singaporean, one Malaysian, one French, one British and three South Koreans.
 http://www.straitstimes.com/news/asia/south-east-asia/story/air-asia-flight-bound-singapore-lost-contact-air-traffic-report-2014
While I am not an expert, I have my doubts.
If the plane is under the sea, then why was no distress signal sent- if they are under the sea, that means they were able to glide into sea and then sink.
If they crashed into the sea, there would be debris scattered in the sea and there would be oil slicks.
Sadly, this seems to be another case of a missing aircraft that may never be found.

Is Obama Really That Stupid?

From Fox News: Obama also told the radio network that Republicans controlling both chambers of Congress when members return next week means they can no longer blame the gridlock on him and fellow Democrats who formally controlled the Senate.
“Now you've got Republicans in a position where it's not enough for them simply to grind the wheels of Congress to a halt and then blame me," he said.  http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/12/28/obama-america-less-racially-divided-since-took-office-in-200/
Umm, President Obama, the GOP can pass any bill it wants and you can veto said law and we could still have government gridlock.
Maybe they forgot to teach you that in high school, college and graduate school.

Obama's Been Smoking Crack Again

Is he serious?
From Fox News: President Obama says that race relations in the U.S. have improved during his six years in the White House, amid recent racial tensions sparked by the deaths of two black males during separate police encounters.
“I actually think that it's probably in its day-to-day interactions less racially divided," said the president, according to excerpts of an interview with National Public Radio to be aired starting Monday.
Obama also told the radio network that Republicans controlling both chambers of Congress when members return next week means they can no longer blame the gridlock on him and fellow Democrats who formally controlled the Senate.
“Now you've got Republicans in a position where it's not enough for them simply to grind the wheels of Congress to a halt and then blame me," he said.
Obama suggested in the aftermath of the shooting of Michael Brown -- an unarmed black teen who was killed by a white police officer in August in Ferguson, Missouri -- that race relations in America have improved in the past 40 or 50 years.
"We have made enormous progress in race relations over the course of the last several decades,” Obama said in late November after a grand jury decided not to indict Officer Darren Wilson. “I have witnessed that in my own life and to deny that progress, I think, is to deny America’s capacity for change.  http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/12/28/obama-america-less-racially-divided-since-took-office-in-200/
This fool president is completely delusional.
First, polls show that most Americans think race relations are worse under Obama.
And if Obama, who is a very racist fellow, thinks that rioting thugs and fools and tools protesting the death of thugs is a sign of improving race relations, then Obama is delusional.
If Obama thinks that Black on Black crime, inner city crime in general, horrible job numbers for minorities is a sign of improvement, then Obama is back smoking crack.
If Obama believes that more people depending on government for some kind of welfare assistance, with minorities seemingly to need to rely more on the government assistance, then Obama maybe is on to meth as well.
But, of course, Obama said these things on NPR, where Obama is given a free pass and NPR would never think of asking him a tough question or confront him on his obvious delusions.

Will They March For This Murdered 1 Year Old Boy?

From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
Suabna Xiong sat in a chair in her kitchen Sunday morning, crying and clutching the neatly folded clothes that belonged to her 13-month-old son, Bill Thao, who was shot and killed Saturday night when someone fired several gunshots into a northwest-side Milwaukee home.
As relatives comforted her in the family's small kitchen, her husband, Thao Somboon, tried to make sense of what had happened Saturday night in the home of a relative, just north of the W. Mill Road branch of the Division of Motor Vehicles.
"The doctors tried to stop the bleeding, but we were told the bullet had severed an artery," Somboon said. "They could not stop the bleeding."
The killing of the boy, in the lower level of a duplex in the 6400 block of N. 73rd St., comes at the end of an already deadly year for children in Milwaukee. Sierra Guyton, a 10-year-old girl, was shot on a playground on May 21 and died July 13. And just last month, a 5-year-old girl was killed inside a home. Laylah Peterson was sitting on her grandfather's lap Nov. 6 when she was struck by gunfire and died.  http://www.jsonline.com/news/crime/family-mourns-for-13-month-old-boy-shot-killed-in-milwaukee-house-b99416318z1-286957001.html
Will there be marches for this baby or do the racist thugs who protest for thugs only care about thugs being killed by cops?

RIP To The Cops

We have to start taking back the streets from the thugs, riot/violence  loving media and the cop hating politicians.
From the Arizona Republic:
"Today, I will not answer the radio call that your boyfriend has come home drunk and is beating you again. Today I will not answer the radio call that your 16 year old daughter, who is very responsible, is four hours late coming home from school. Today I will not answer the radio call that your store has been robbed or your house has been burglarized. Today I will not stop a drunk driver from killing someone. I will not catch a rapist or a murderer or a car thief. Today I will not answer the radio call that a man has a gun or tried to abduct a child or that someone has been stabbed or has been in a terrible accident. Today I will not save your child that you locked in a car or the child you were to busy to watch who went outside and fell into the swimming pool, but that I revived. No, today I will not do that.
Why?
Because Today... I was killed by a drunk driver while I was helping push a disabled car off the highway. Today I was shot and killed during a routine traffic stop to simply tell someone that they had a taillight out. Today I was killed in a traffic accident rushing to help a citizen. Today I was shot and killed serving a warrant on a known drug dealer. Today I was killed by a man when I came by to do a welfare check because his family was to busy.

Today I was killed trying to stop a bank robbery or a grocery store robbery. Today I was killed doing my job.
A chaplain and an officer will go to a house and tell a mom and dad or a wife or husband or a child that their son or daughter or husband or wife or father or mother won’t be coming home today. The flags at many police stations were flown at half-mast today but most people won’t know why. There will be a funeral and my fellow officers will come, a twenty-one-gun salute will be given, and taps will be played as I am laid to rest. My name will be put on a plaque, on a wall, in a building, in a city somewhere. A folded flag will be placed on a mantel or a bookcase in a home somewhere and a family will mourn.
There will be no cries for justice. There will be no riots in the streets. There will be no officers marching, screaming “no justice, no peace.” No citizens will scream that something must be done. No windows will be smashed, no cars burned, no stones thrown, no names called. Only someone crying themselves to sleep tonight will be the only sign that I was cared about.
I was a police officer."

Another SouthEast Asia Airplane Crash

A sign informing the next-of-kins of passengers of AirAsia flight QZ 8501 from Indonesian city of Surabaya to Singapore is seen next to an information counter at Changi Airport.
From AirAsia Facebook website:
AirAsia Indonesia regrets to confirm that flight QZ8501 from Surabaya to Singapore has lost contact with air traffic control at 07:24 (Surabaya LT) this morning. The flight took off from Juanda International Airport in Surabaya at 0535hours.
 The aircraft was an Airbus A320-200 with the registration number PK-AXC. There were two pilots, four flight ...attendants and one engineer on board.
 The captain in command had a total of 6,100 flying hours and the first officer a total of 2,275 flying hours
 There were 155 passengers on board, with 138 adults, 16 children and 1 infant. Also on board were 2 pilots and 5 cabin crew.
 Nationalities of passengers and crew onboard are as below:
1 Singapore
1 Malaysia
3 South Korean
157 Indonesia
 At this time, search and rescue operations are being conducted under the guidance of The Indonesia of Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). AirAsia Indonesia is cooperating fully and assisting the investigation in every possible way.
 The aircraft was on the submitted flight plan route and was requesting deviation due to enroute weather before communication with the aircraft was lost while it was still under the control of the Indonesian Air Traffic Control (ATC).
 The aircraft had undergone its last scheduled maintenance on 16 November 2014.
 AirAsia has established an Emergency Call Centre that is available for family or friends of those who may have been on board the aircraft. The number is: +622129850801.  https://www.facebook.com/AirAsia
Malaysian Airlines lost 2 large aircraft within the past year or so and now a large plane from Indonesia is lost and my guess, crashed somewhere in the ocean.
Hopefully, they will be able to find this plane and perhaps some survivors.
Update:  They still have not found the plane even though Indonesia and Singapore have been searching for hours for the plane.
Very eerie.

Another Cop Shot And Killed

On a day when the NYPD buried on of their own, a police officer in flagstaff AZ. was shot and killed.
From the Arizona  Daily Sun:
A Flagstaff police officer has been killed in the line of duty.
Ofc. Tyler Jacob Stewart, 24, was pronounced dead at Flagstaff Medical Center Saturday afternoon after being shot in the Plaza Vieja neighborhood in a confrontation with a domestic violence suspect.
The shooting happened around 1:30 p.m. in the 800 block of West Clay Avenue. Sgt. Margaret Bentzen of the Flagstaff Police Department said Stewart was attempting to contact a person of interest in a domestic violence incident that was reported earlier in the day. The officer and the suspect exchanged gunfire.
The officer was shot in the face and was taken to the hospital. He died a short time later.
The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene. The name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin, Bentzen said.  http://azdailysun.com/news/local/crime-and-courts/p-m-update-fpd-officer-killed-in-plaza-vieja-shooting/article_732049f4-8e0f-11e4-9105-67ad8ed8d0eb.html
More from the Officer Down Memorial Page:  http://www.odmp.org/officer/22313-police-officer-tyler-jacob-stewart
According to the ODMP, police officer shooting deaths are up 57% from last year.
People are not afraid of taking on the cops and disrespecting them.  And it starts at the top with President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder along with many liberal mayors of big cities - they thoroughly dislike police officers and thugs see this and they are willing to have a shootout with them.
And now, another town will be burying a fallen police officer.

I Call BS

From Fox News: 
President Obama pledged that Afghanistan will no longer “be a source of terrorist attacks again,” a week before the U.S. is set to end its combat mission in the Middle Eastern nation.
“We’ve been in continuous war now for over 13 years. Next week we will be ending our combat mission in Afghanistan,” Obama told troops in Hawaii late Thursday, celebrating Christmas.
“Because of the extraordinary service of the men and women in the armed forces, Afghanistan has a chance to rebuild its own country,” he said. "We are safer. It’s not going to be a source of terrorist attacks again.”
Though the American combat mission in Afghanistan is nearly completed, at least some troops are scheduled to stay in the nation until the end of 2016.
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/12/26/obama-afghanistan-wont-be-source-terrorist-attacks-again/?intcmp=latestnews
Didn't Obama say ISIS is a JV team and that Iraq would be peaceful when the U.S. pulled out?
Yeah, his predictions on most everything pretty much don't come true.
Sadly, Afghanistan probably will go the way of parts of Iraq and after the Soviet Union left Afghanistan in the 1980's.

Some Lives Don't Matter

I am not crying for the thug who was killed.
From the NY Daily News: An Ohio shopper shot and killed a 16-year-old outside of a mall when the teen tried to steal his newly bought, limited-edition Nike Air Jordans.
Jawaad Jabbar died Tuesday from a gunshot wound to his torso, police said.
Miami Township police said two groups — three teens and two men — struggled on a sidewalk outside the Dayton Mall before the shooting. All five people went to the mall on a mission to buy the $200 Nikes, which quickly sold out.
The three teens left empty-handed, but at least one of the men got a pair.
In front of the mall, the youths spotted the men with the shoes and confronted them, police said. Jabbar pulled out a gun and demanded the men give them the sneakers.
That’s when one of the men pulled out his own concealed weapon and shot the Middletown High School student.
No one else was injured in the shooting. The man had a permit for the gun, police said.  http://www.nydailynews.com/news/crime/ohio-shopper-kills-teen-steal-new-nikes-cops-article-1.2055840
Good riddance to the thug who thought he was so important that he had to steal some else's shoes and that he pulled a gun on the victims to get the shoes he wanted.
And good thing one of the victims also pulled out his gun and eliminated the thug from the world's DNA pool.
Once again, the good person with the gun won and the thug with the gun is no longer with us.

Bad Car Accident In Vegas

Right now, Las Vegas Fire and Rescue is on the scene of a very bad accident on Cheyenne and Hualapai in the northwest part of the city.  Apparently, 2 people have died in the crash at the scene.
2 cars were involved, based on scanner reports and both cars needed to have the firefighter use heavy equipment to get the victims out of the cars.
A helicopter has been sent to scene but was turned around.  There were 4 people transported to the hospitals via ambulance in critical condition- 3 adults and 1 child and all are going to UMC Trauma.
Sucks this happened and especially on Christmas day.

Cool- Santa Rodgers

View image on Twitter
From ESPN: Aaron Rodgers' calf injury limited him in practice on Wednesday, but it didn't prevent the Green Bay Packers quarterback from playing Santa Claus on Christmas Eve.
When Rodgers' offensive linemen -- including the reserves and practice-squad players -- and backup quarterbacks showed up at Lambeau Field, they found 55-inch Samsung curved smart TVs, tablets and Beats headphones in their lockers courtesy of their Pro Bowl quarterback.
"He's a hell of a dude, and we've had a hell of a year for each other," said Packers guard Josh Sitton, who like Rodgers was voted to the Pro Bowl on Tuesday. "He just wanted to thank us. We definitely appreciate it. It's nice to be appreciated. We appreciate being appreciated."
Sitton added that Rodgers didn't want anyone to know about the gesture.
It prompted Packers right tackle David Bakhtiari to nickname Rodgers "Aaron Claus."
Bakhtiari knew about the gesture beforehand but only because he helped Rodgers deliver the gifts to the locker room.
"I may or may not have been an elf the night before," Bakhtiari said.
Rookie center Corey Linsley was perhaps more surprised than anyone. He said he received a text message that said his gift was in, but he had no idea what that meant.
"I mean that's just his characteristic, a characteristic of who he is," Linsley said. "It's not that I expected that by any means, but it's like when he does something like that, it's like, 'That's Aaron. That's who he is.' "
Rodgers is perhaps the leading contender for the NFL MVP and with one game remaining, he has been sacked only 28 times this season, which would be the fewest in any of his seasons as a starter other than 2013, when he missed seven games because of a broken collarbone.  http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/12077470/aaron-rodgers-green-bay-packers-buys-linemen-backup-quarterbacks-tvs-tablets-headphones
Rodgers is a class act and I am sure he has made many donations to the poor and the disabled as well as his teammates.

From the Hawaii Tribune-Herald: It’s weather Santa would approve.The Big Island’s two summits are braced for Hawaii’s answer to that proverbial howling nor’easter — with wind gusts of more than 90 mph expected to drive up to a foot of snow hard into the mountain faces by today. Temperatures on the peaks were forecast to dip to a frosty 23 degrees Tuesday night, according to the Mauna Kea Weather Center.Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea were under blizzard warnings Tuesday and today and summit roads were closed as a potent upper atmosphere disturbance geared up to slam the peaks. Bitterly cold wind chills, lightning and blowing and drifting snow were combining to create life-threatening conditions for anyone trying to drive or hike the summit of Mauna Kea, forecasters warned. - See more at: http://hawaiitribune-herald.com/news/local-news/winter-arrives#sthash.9V0pKRdQ.dpuf
Of all the places you have in the United States, I think Hawaii would be about the last place you would expect a blizzard warning.
(and since this is not April Fools Day, I am sure this is a legit warning)

The Tools And Fools Are At It Again

You would think that there would be at least 1 case of a police shooting where a totally innocent black person was shot so the fools and tools protesting the police would not look look like complete idiots.
Apparently not.
From the St. Louis Post Dispatch:
A Berkeley police officer fired at least three shots at a suspect who pulled a gun on him, the St. Louis County Police chief said at a Wednesday morning news conference.
Police Chief Jon Belmar said the officer was doing a business check at a Mobil on the run station about 11:15 p.m. Tuesday when the shooting happened.
The officer saw two people on the parking lot in the 6800 block of North Hanley Road and began talking with them.
Belmar said one of the people approached the driver's side of the vehicle.
One of the individuals "produced a pistol with his arm straight out, pointing it straight at the officer kind of from across the hood," Belmar said.
At that point, the chief said, the officer got his service revolver "and fired what we think is three shots."...
Between 200 and 300 protesters gathered at the scene after the shooting, and conflicts broke out between officers and protesters, Belmar said.
Four people were arrested for assaulting officers, and at least one officer was injured when he tried to get away from some sort of firework device set off on the parking lot, Belmar said.
Protesters also threw some bricks at officers, Belmar said. Police used pepper spray on the crowd but did not use any tear gas, the chief said.
He also said several police cars were damaged, and some protesters brought bags of rocks to the scene. 
As to suggestions that the officer should have used a Taser instead of his gun, Belmar said: "Frankly that's unreasonable." The officer also had a body camera issued to him at the start of his shift, but he was not wearing it. The car's dash-camera was not activated.   http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/crime-and-courts/berkeley-officer-kills-suspect-who-pulled-gun-police-say-victim/article_d45db16a-7422-5307-b81d-b45dbdc896ba.html
So, apparently, the fools and tools protesting this shooting don't care that the thug pulled a gun on the cop.
And because a Black thug was killed because he deserved it, the tools and fools decided that they were going to riot.
We now have a race war and a war against cops and it was brought on by the racist brothers of Barack, Eric, Jesse and Al.
Because of the racist brothers actions, more Black people thugs will feel embolden to take on the cops with their weapons or they will decide to fight the cops. Many of the thugs will die, which is not a bad thing, but the tools and fools will continue to protest.
And in this case, Black lives don't matter:  You pull a gun on a cop and you will find yourself dead and out of the DNA pool.
Good bye and good riddance to the black thug who died.
(And if a white thug did the same thing, my feelings would not change- if a white thug pulls a gun on a cop, I hope the white thug gets blown away by the cop.)

Shock: Obama Appointed Judge Rules For Obama

From the LVRJ: A federal judge on Tuesday night rejected an Arizona sheriff’s lawsuit seeking to halt President Barack Obama’s plan to spare nearly 5 million people from deportation.
Refusing to rule on the merits of the case, U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell said the role of courts is not to engage in policymaking that is better left to the political branches of government.
The case brought by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio “raises important questions regarding the impact of illegal immigration on this nation, but the questions amount to generalized grievances which are not proper for the judiciary to address,” Howell wrote.
The sheriff filed a notice of appeal saying that he will pursue the case in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. http://www.reviewjournal.com/news/nation-and-world/judge-rejects-sheriff-s-lawsuit-against-president-s-immigration-plan
The article refuses to point out that the judge is an Obama appointed judge.
And this from Wiki: Beryl A. Howell (born 1956) is a federal District Court judge for the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. She was nominated by President Barack Obama on July 14, 2010 and confirmed by the U.S. Senate on December 27, 2010. She previously served in law enforcement, and in public and private practice as an attorney, counsel to Congressional committees, and recording industry lobbyist. Judge Howell is considered by many to be anti-Constitutional in her jurisprudence, and is associated with the American Progressive Movement; an organization established as a joint venture between American Communist and American Socialist movements. [1]http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/printgroupProfile.asp?grpid=6497.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beryl_A._Howell
What a shock that a judge appointed by Obama may be a communist/socialist.
Of course, this is the same judge who thinks that a border fence between the U.S and Mexico is racist.
The judge is a blonde, so that may explain a few things, I suppose.

Another Reason Why The U.S Economy Will Not Recover

The petty little tyrant/dictator/POS president is at it again.
From Fox News:
The Obama administration is cramming like a college student trying to study for a final exam, publishing more than 1,200 new regulations in the last 15 days alone, according to data from Regulations.gov.
Energy and environment rules are the biggest category, with 139 published by the federal government in the last 15 days, according to Regulations.gov.
One of the most contentious new regulations is the EPA’s coal ash rule. The rule has been criticized by the coal industry and environmental groups — though for entirely different reasons — and has a price tag of up to $20.3 billion. The rule was finalized last Friday.
Before that, the Obama administration finalized a new ozone standard that could become the costliest rule ever proposed by the EPA. The EPA released the rule while millions of Americans were getting ready to eat some turkey and pie for Thanksgiving.
Regulations listed on Regulations.gov include “Notices from the Federal Register; Proposed Rules; Final Rules.” The government website shows that 309 rules were proposed or finalized in the last 15 days and 892 notices from the federal register were received — some of which could lead to new rulemakings.
So far this year, the Obama administration has proposed or finalized  more than $200 billion in regulations when the coal ash rule’s costs are factored in, according to the American Action Forum.
But that’s not all, the Obama administration will be unleashing a slew of new regulations in 2015 aimed at hydraulic fracturing, energy production on federal lands, methane from oil and gas drilling and carbon dioxide from power plantshttp://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/12/23/obama-admin-crams-over-1200-new-regulations-just-before-new-year/
You would hope that the new GOP lead congress would do something about these issues, but unfortunately, they will just say the great line form Animal House:
Thank you sir, may I have another.

GOP reacting to Obama

Black Lives Don't Matter If You Are A Liberal

Five charged in Clearing murder
Meanwhile the tools and fools are out protesting on the behalf of thugs-Michael Brown, Eric Garner and a few other thugs killed by cops in self defense.
But these tools and fools will not say a damn thing about the killings ny Blacks against other Blacks.
From the Chicago Tribune: Five people, including a 14-year-old boy, have been charged with murdering a Southwest Side teen this week.
The five, who all live on the West Side, are charged in connection with the death of 18-year-old Ricardo Ruvalcaba, who was killed during a home invasion.
About 10:25 a.m. Monday, Ruvalcaba was inside a home in the 5500 block of West 63rd Place in the city's Clearing neighborhood when the group broke into the home, police said. A struggle ensued and Ruvalcaba was shot twice in the chest.  http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/chi-5-charged-including-14yearold-boy-of-southwest-side-murder-20141224-story.htmlSo, why do I spend so much time on Black people who have been murdered?
Because I am trying to show that President Obama, Eric Holder along with Jesse, Al and all those tools and fools protesting and/or rioting really don't care about the Black people and their communities.
The racist brothers of Barack, Eric, Al and Jesse and the other tools and fools are trying to get the United States into a race war by their words and policies and right now, they are succeeding.
The racist brothers of Barack, Eric, Jesse and Al make the KKK look like My Little Ponies characters when it comes to the Black community.  The Grand Wizards of the KKK could not come up with a better plan of hurting and killing Blacks than what the racist brothers are doing to the Black community.
And the racist brothers are no different than Hitler-they are the leaders and they have their rabid followers, who act like the Gestapo and other Hitler followers, marching in the streets, rioting and menacing people who don't believe in what they believe.
And the liberal media are like Tass, the old Soviet news agency, who parrots what the racist brothers are saying and don't do any real reporting.
Jesse and Al should have their butts thrown in jail for the riots they have caused and the fraud they have committed.
Obama and Holder not only should be impeached, they should have their butts thrown in jail for all the negligence and crimes they have committed.
My guess is that in January 2017, just before a new president is sworn in, Obama will pardon himself along with Holder and the others in Obama's inner circle who have committed crimes while Obama was president.

More Killings In Obamaville

Chicago Under the Gun 2014
Obama is vacationing in Hawaii and people are dying in his hometown and Obama still says nothing.
From the Chicago Tribune: Four people have been killed and at least eleven others have been wounded in shootings on the South and West sides since Tuesday morning, police said.
Tuesday night, a 38-year-old man was discovered shot to death in a car in the Austin neighborhood, police said.
Officers responded to a call of shots fired and found the 38-year-old man sitting in the driver's seat of a car in the 1100 block of North Leclaire Avenue, said Officer Ron Gaines, a Chicago Police spokesman.
The man had been fatally shot in his head. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later. As of early Wednesday morning, police were conducting a homicide investigation, Gaines said.
Hours earlier, a 20-year-old man was discovered dead in the Auburn Gresham neighborhood in the 7800 block of South Lowe Avenue about 8:55 p.m., said Officer Thomas Sweeney, a police spokesman.
Officers responded to a calls of a person shot and discovered a 20-year-old man with a gunshot wound to his chest in the basement of a building on the block, police said.  http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/chi-shootings-chicago-20141223-story.html
Black lives don't matter in Obamaville, where Obama still owns a house which is guarded by the Secret Service 24/7.

Crap

Fox News - Fair & Balanced
Well, I have Dish TV and because of a dispute between Dish and Fox, we ,o longer get Fox News and other Fox related channels except the regular Fox channel.
So, where am I am going to get my talking points?

More Failed Liberal Policy

From the Las Vegas Sun:  Chris Easterling was sick of relying on drug dealers in Minneapolis when he needed marijuana to help ease the pain of multiple sclerosis. They were flaky, often leaving the homeless man without the drug when he needed relief the most.
Easterling is among a growing number of homeless people who have recently come to Colorado seeking its legal marijuana, and who now remain in the state and occupy beds in shelters, according to service providers.
While no state agency records how many homeless people were drawn by legal weed, officials at homeless centers say the influx they are seeing is straining their ability to meet the needs of the increasing population.
"The older ones are coming for medical (marijuana), the younger ones are coming just because it's legal," said Brett Van Sickle, director of Denver's Salvation Army Crossroads Shelter, which has more than doubled its staff to accommodate the increase.
The shelter did an informal survey of the roughly 500 new out-of-towners who stayed there between July and September and found as many as 30 percent had relocated for pot, he said.  http://www.lasvegassun.com/news/2014/dec/23/shelters-cite-legal-pot-part-denvers-rise-homeless/
The liberals (and some libertarians) want to legalize pot throughout the country but it has been shown to be another liberal failure.

This Man Should Be A Hero In The Black Community

Joseph Sanford Jr., the critically injured Inwood firefighter
We have seen many protests by liberals about black thugs being shot by cops and with justification.  For some reason, they have decided to honor black thugs who have committed crimes or posed significant dangers to the police.
However, there is a true Black hero out there who died a hero who will not be mentioned by the racist brothers and other racist idiots out there.
From Newsday: A firefighter who was critically injured while battling a raging house fire in Woodmere on Friday has died, Nassau County officials said.
Joseph Sanford Jr., 43, died Tuesday afternoon at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset with his family around him, said Nassau Assistant Chief Fire Marshal Michael F. Uttaro.
Sanford, a longtime volunteer for the Inwood Fire Department, was pronounced dead at 3:51 p.m. as a result of "firefighter's injuries," said Inwood 1st Assistant Fire Chief Gaetano Marino.
The firefighter had been on a ventilator since the fire, authorities said.
Reached by phone Tuesday night, Sanford's family declined to comment. Marino provided no further details.
Sanford, a father and husband, was one of several Inwood firefighters who joined efforts to search the home in teams during the early morning fire on Friday, fire officials said at the time.
He was discovered in the debris-strewn basement after the first floor collapsed, fire officials said.
Sanford was a 17-year veteran of the department and a former assistant fire chief. He worked for the Nassau County Public Works Department, where he was a favorite of co-workers.  http://www.newsday.com/long-island/nassau/fire-official-inwood-volunteer-injured-in-house-fire-dies-1.9744063
You think the racist brothers of Al, Jesse, Barack and Eric will care one little bit for this true hero?
RIP brother and prayers to your family and fellow firefighters.

Better The Thug Than The Cop

From the Las Vegas Sun:   St. Louis County police say a man who pulled a gun and pointed it at an officer has been killed the St. Louis suburb of Berkeley, Missouri.
Schellman says one of the men pulled a handgun and pointed it at the officer as he approached. The officer then fired several shots, striking and fatally wounding the suspect. Schellman says the second suspect fled.
The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports a group of about 60 people have gathered at the scene.
Berkeley is about two miles from Ferguson, where a police officer fatally shot 18-year-old Michael Brown in August.  http://www.lasvegassun.com/news/2014/dec/24/police-officer-in-missouri-shot-killed-man-who-pul/
After the murder of the NYPD cops and the Tarpon Springs FL in the last few days, cops are not going to take any chances with thugs, especially those with any type of weapons.

She's Being Too Kind

Image result for picture of jan brewer wagging finger at obama
From Fox News: 
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, stepping down after six years in office where she was a perpetual thorn in the side of the Obama administration, is leaving with a parting shot -- calling President Obama a "failed president." 
"He's been a very big disappointment to me," Brewer told Fox News in an interview. "I think he has done things that certainly we would never have expected any president to do -- by executive order and because he says so." 
Brewer is not letting up on her criticism of the president. 
The governor made headlines in January 2012, when cameras caught her wagging a finger in the president's face on an airport tarmac. 
Does she regret it? 
"No, not really," she said. "He was not very nice to me that day." 
According to Brewer, the president had objected to her portrayal of him as dismissive and patronizing in her book, "Scorpions for Breakfast." 
"He is very thin-skinned. He was very concerned about how I portrayed him in my book," she said. "It was a truth-telling book and we need our borders secure, and he walked away from me." 
At the time, Obama downplayed the exchange, saying: "I think it's always good publicity for a Republican if they're in an argument with me. ... I think this is a classic example of things getting blown out of proportion."   http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/12/24/parting-shot-outgoing-arizona-gov-brewer-calls-obama-failed-president/
Obama is not only a failed president, he is also a failed human being who has hurt many people and is destroying the Black community with his policies and through his spoken word.
Jan Brewer is just speaking the truth that almost everyone who has more than 3 brain cells know.

Another Liberal Failure

From Yahoo News: When President Francois Hollande unveiled a "super-tax" on the rich in 2012, some feared an exodus of business, sporting and artistic talent. One adviser warned it was a Socialist step too far that would turn France into "Cuba without sun".
Two years on, with the tax due to expire at the end of this month, the mass emigration has not happened. But the damage to France's appeal as a home for top earners has been great, and the pickings from the levy paltry.
"The reform clearly damaged France's reputation and competitiveness," said Jorg Stegemann, head of Kennedy Executive, an executive search firm based in France and Germany.
"It clearly has become harder to attract international senior managers to come to France than it was," he added.
Hollande first floated the 75-percent super-tax on earnings over 1 million euros ($1.2 million) a year in his 2012 campaign to oust his conservative rival Nicolas Sarkozy. It fired up left-wing voters and helped him unseat the incumbent.
Yet ever since, it has been a thorn in his side, helping little in France's effort to bring its public deficit within European Union limits and mixing the message just as Hollande sought to promote a more pro-business image. The adviser who made the "Cuba" gag was Emmanuel Macron, the ex-banker who is now his economy minister. 
The Finance Ministry estimates the proceeds from the tax amounted to 260 million euros in its first year and 160 million in the second. That's broadly in line with expectations, but tiny compared with a budget deficit which had reached 84.7 billion euros by the end of October.
https://ca.news.yahoo.com/france-waves-discreet-goodbye-75-percent-super-tax-162358813--business.html
The hardcore liberals in the U.S. want to raise taxes on the rich but as seen in France, their super tax amounted to very little money as the rich found ways to get around the super tax.
Another liberal policy bites the dust.

Stay Classy, Liberals

From Breitbart:
CNN Correspondent Sara Ganim reported that a small group of protesters were yelling at police officers who had gathered to pay their respects at a memorial to slain NYPD officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos on Monday.
While Ganim said that most of the people who had showed up were paying their respects to the officers, she added “I do, just in full disclosure, want to say that in the last couple of minutes, for the first time today, we’ve seen protesters come out here and start yelling at groups of police who are mourning their slain police officers.”
Ganim continued “it’s just a few of them, Suzanne, and like I said, just in the last five minutes, and they’re quite frankly yelling at a group of police officers who are standing here silently, just looking at the memorial of candles and flowers and posters, and they’re yelling similar rhetoric that we’ve been hearing over the last couple of weeks related to the shooting of — the chokehold death of Eric Garner and the shooting of Michael Brown in Missouri.”  http://www.breitbart.com/video/2014/12/22/report-protesters-yell-at-nypd-at-slain-officer-memorial/
I'm pretty sure that there were no Tea Party members or conservatives yelling at the cops while at a memorial service for a NYPD cop who was killed.
Stay classy, liberals.

Pay Back is A Bitch

From the Las Vegas Sun: North Korea experienced sweeping and progressively worse Internet outages extending into Monday, with one computer expert saying the country's online access is "totally down." The White House and the State Department declined to say whether the U.S. government was responsible.
I gotta give Obama credit for this- job nicely done.
Now, where is Kim Jong-un gonna get his porn?

Update: Rumor has it that the group Anonymous was the group that put down the Internet in north Korea.
So much the U.S. government doing something this big.

Black Lives Matter... Except In ObamaVille

The tools and fools protesting and saying Black lives matter apparently have forgotten about ObamaVille aka Chicago.
From the Chicago Sun Times:
Two men were killed and at least 23 other people–including an 8-year-old boy–have been wounded in shootings across the city since Friday afternoon.
A man was shot to death Sunday evening during a robbery in the West Englewood neighborhood on the South Side.
About 5:40 p.m., the 44-year-old man was standing outside with another man in the 7200 block of South Hermitage when two people walked up and opened fire, police said.
He was shot in the head and taken to Holy Cross Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 6:19 p.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. His name was not released Sunday evening pending notification of his family.
The pair were working on rehabbing a vacant home when two robbers walked up and ordered them to kneel, according to a police report. One man complied and the robbers took his money and cell phone before striking him with the gun.
The police report said the 44-year-old was shot in the head when he did not comply with the robber’s demands. The robbers ran away after the shooting.
About 4:40 p.m. Friday, a man was shot to death in the Little Village neighborhood on the Southwest Side.  http://chicago.suntimes.com/crime/7/71/221759/man-killed-13-wounded-weekend-shootings
And the racist brothers of Jesse Jackson and Barack Obama, both who have resided in Chicago, have refused to comment on all the violence in ObamaVille.
But these two useful village idiots don't say a damn thing about the violence in Chicago, mainly because they could not care less about the victims of black on black crime.
