Philadelphia Mayor Blasts NRA After Gunman Shoots and Injures Six Police Officers (is that what it took?)

H10 philadelphia mayor jim kenney shooting police officers nra gun control

Police in Philadelphia have arrested a gunman who sparked an almost eight-hour standoff after he opened fire on officers serving a warrant for drug crimes, injuring six officers. A 36-year-old suspect was taken into custody around midnight after a SWAT team fired tear gas into the building where he’d holed up. The man was reportedly heavily armed and had an AK-47 assault rifle. This is Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney.

Mayor Jim Kenney: “It’s aggravating. It’s saddening. And it’s just something that we need to do something about. And if the state and federal government don’t want to stand up to the NRA and some other folks, then let us — let us — police ourselves. But they preempt us on all kinds of gun control legislation. Our officers deserve to be protected, and they don’t deserve to be shot at by a guy for hours with an unlimited supply of weapons and an unlimited supply of bullets.”

Was it okay as long as it was just regular citizens? Children?

Maine: N.H. man Shawn Hunt hit by shotgun pellets while rabbit hunting in Maine

Shawn Hunt, 36, of Lebanon, New Hampshire, was on a guided hunt Tuesday in Pleasant Ridge Plantation when he was injured, authorities said.

SKOWHEGAN, Maine — Game wardens say a New Hampshire man was struck in the head with shotgun pellets while rabbit hunting in Maine.

Authorities say 36-year-old Shawn Hunt, of Lebanon, New Hampshire, was on a guided hunt Tuesday morning in Pleasant Ridge Plantation when he was injured.

Lt. Kevin Adam with the Maine Warden Service says Hunt had instructed a teen to shoot a hare. He was hit with several pellets from the teen’s gun.

Hunt was taken to a hospital in Skowhegan for treatment. Adam says the injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

Game wardens are still investigating.

Maine: Eagle dies from shotgun blast, reward offered for information

X-rays showed the eagle had been shot and contained six shotgun pellets lodged in its jaw, wing, and leg.

Maine Game Wardens are looking for answers after an eagle was found wounded from a shotgun in Waterford and then later died, possibly of starvation.

On Wednesday, Dec. 26, the Warden Service went to Papoose Pond in Waterford for a report of a bald eagle that was acting “abnormally”. Wardens say the eagle was only able to fly a short distance but they were unable to capture it.

Days later, the eagle appeared weaker and Game Wardens captured it and took it to Avian Haven in Freedom.

X-rays showed the eagle had six shotgun pellets lodged in its jaw, wing, and leg. The eagle died on Dec. 30 officials believe from starvation.

Maine Operation Game Thief (OGT) is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to a conviction of the person responsible.

Maine’s eagle population is in healthy shape with 734 nesting pairs at the start of 2019, according to Game Wardens. That number is up from a low of 21 nesting pairs in 1967. A survey this year documented eagle increases in all Maine counties since the last statewide survey five years ago.

Emantic Bradford Jr: Alabama man killed ‘shot three times in back’ by local police; POW! POW! POW!

A man wrongly killed by police in an Alabama mall was shot three times from behind, an autopsy has revealed.

Emantic Bradford Jr, known as EJ, was shot in the head, neck and hip at the Riverchase Galleria in Hoover, Alabama.

Police had identified him as the gunman in the shooting of an 18-year-old man and 12-year-old girl last month.

But they later admitted they were mistaken and have since arrested another man. Erron Brown, 20, handed himself in to police.

According to an autopsy requested by Bradford’s family, a police officer shot the 21-year-old three times from behind.

Benjamin Crump, the lawyer representing Bradford’s family, reportedly told a news conference that based on the autopsy, “this officer should be charged with a crime”.

“There’s nothing that justifies him shooting EJ as he’s moving away from him.”

The officer responsible has been placed on administrative leave, and an investigation is under way.

Riverside Galleria in Hoover, AlabamaThe shooting took place at the Riverchase Galleria in Hoover, Alabama

However, authorities have given scant details about the case, and are refusing to release body camera footage of the incident.

In a joint statement reported by broadcaster ABC News, Hoover Mayor Frank Brocato and police chief Nicklaus Derzis said disclosing such evidence could “jeopardise the integrity” of the investigation.

Bradford was carrying a weapon at the time of the shooting, for which he had a permit. Police said he “heightened the sense of threat” at the scene by drawing his gun after shots rang out at the mall.

Under Alabama gun law, it is not illegal to carry a gun in public, but the Riverchase Galleria prohibits firearms on its premises.

New Hampshire man dead after being shot by Old Town police officer

Adrian Bunker, 37, of Merrimack, New Hampshire was driving a gray Chevy Silverado pickup truck when he was shot by an officer, according to police.

Officer Joseph Decato of the Old Town Police department is on paid administrative leave and is pending review of the Old Town Police department.

The Attorney General’s office is on scene investigating.

No other details are available at this time. Old Town Police refused to answer reporters questions at a press conference on Thursday.

AltRight Hero Alex Fields goes on trial over deadly Charlottesville rally, during which he ran into True Patriot Heather Heyer, killing her.

Jury selection in the trial of a man accused of killing Heather Heyer during an August 2017 white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia is slated to begin on Monday.

James Alex Fields Jr, a 21-year-old Ohiresident, will stand trial for murder and a spate of charges stemming from the deadly car ramming during the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville on August 12, 2017.

During the incident, prosecutors say, Fields slammed his car into a crowd of counterprotesters, killing 32-year-old Heyer and injuring dozens more.

Earlier in the day, Fields was photographed marching with Vanguard America, a neo-Nazi group, during the rally. Throughout the day, rally participants clashed with community members, anti-racists and anti-fascists across the city.ng which

Unite the Right, called to oppose Charlottesville’s decision to remove a Confederate statue, was the largest white nationalist rally in the US in recent decades.

The rally brought out thousands of supporters of the alt-right, a loosely-knit coalition of white supremacists, white nationalists and neo-Nazis.

In Virginia, prosecutors charged Fields with 10 offences, including first-degree murder, five counts of malicious wounding, failure to stop an accident and three counts of malicious assault. If convicted, he could receive a life sentence.

Federal charges

Those charges came in addition to dozens of federal charges. In June, the US Department of Justice slapped Fields with 30 federal charges, among them hate crimes, which could result in the death penalty.

In the wake of the deadly Charlottesville protest, several articles investigating Fields’s history found a lengthy social media trail of neo-Nazi content and racist posts.

Following the rally, far-right participants from across the country faced legal backlash, with a slew of civil suits targeting organisers.

White nationalist, neo-Nazi and far-right groups that took to the streets in Charlottesville saw permits for a spate of subsequent public eventspulled or denied, while hosting services, social media outlets and tech companies cracked down on far-right individuals and groups.

Heyer was among 18 people killed by white supremacists in the US last year, according to the Anti-Defamation League.

Earlier this month, the Federal Bureau of Investigations released its annual hate crimes report for 2017. According to the report’s findings, hate crimes grew for the third consecutive year, increasing by 17 percent.

U.S. Border Patrol Fires Tear Gas at Families Seeking Asylum!

H1 border patrol tear gas

In Tijuana, Mexico, U.S. border patrol officers fired tear gas Sunday into a crowd of desperate Central American asylum seekers as they tried to push their way through the heavily militarized border with the United States. Among those attacked were mothers and small children, who were left gagging and screaming as tear gas spread. Mexican federal police officers in riot gear moved in and arrested dozens of the migrants; Mexico’s government says they’ll be deported to Central America. The group had broken away from a peaceful protest of thousands of migrants demanding entry to the U.S. where they hoped to win asylum. The migrants are from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, and are fleeing widespread violence, poverty and mass unemployment. This is 37-year-old Honduran asylum seeker Saúl Hernández.

Saúl Hernández: “My message to the United States president is not to scare people, because he’s showing Mexico that he has the military power. He’s also frightening Mexico. Please remove your troops.”

In response, the Trump administration temporarily closed the San Ysidro border crossing, one of the busiest ports of entry in the world, with more than 90,000 people crossing each day. Meanwhile, the administration of Mexican President-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador denied it had made any deal with the Trump administration to force asylum seekers to remain in Mexico while their U.S. asylum claims are processed. The denial contradicts tweets by President Trump and a report in the Washington Post on Saturday.

Strange things happening in the woods of Maine

As Maine’s hunting season enters its final week, sites like the Maine Deer Hunters Facebook page fill up with stories of unusual things that are happening in the Maine woods.
img_1918.jpg

Now, because of game cameras and cell phones, pictures of some of these unusual things are being made public.

On websites and Facebook pages, the stories are shared among hunters.

In Maine this year, we have seen a four-point doe, a man setting up camp next to person hunting and ghostly figure walking through the woods far from anything in the middle of the night.

This all used to be part of Maine lore. Now, thanks to digital media, we are able to share the stories.

Sabattus, Maine Man hospitalized after hunting-related shooting

TOPSHAM (NEWS CENTER Maine)

25-year-old Joshua Stark received a gunshot wound to the hip at around 7:30 Saturday morning said Game Warden Corporal John MacDonald. Stark was walking a power line with three others off Cathance Road to begin hunting when Stark’s girlfriend slipped and fell on ice, discharging her shotgun he said.

MacDonald said 21-year-old Sasha Leslie also from Sabattus, was walking behind Stark along with two other men in the hunting party. The two other men in the hunting party are in their mid-twenties and were not injured.

Stark was taken to Maine Medical Center in Portland for treatment. He is expected to survive. Game wardens continue to investigate this incident.
