I read about a school shooting in a New Mexico middle school. One 13 year old student shot another. As soon as the name of the school was mentioned, I knew what I would find. I also knew that an NRA member as unlikely to be involved.
The middle school was Washington Middle School. That school has 442 students enrolled, with 410 of them receiving free lunch. Eighty seven percent of the student body is reading below their grade level. Ninety percent of US schools are better than this one in reading and math. One in eight households are single parent households.
To get those absolutely horrid results, taxpayers are paying more than $11,300 per student each year. I would say that this money is being wasted.
My wife and I will occasionally take a drive to a nearby city and spend the weekend. This weekend, we went to Orlando. On the way down there, we were stuck in a bit of traffic. While sitting in traffic where two highways came together in a merge, two black males in a minivan decided to pass a line of cars by driving in the breakdown lane and then cut in front of us. I would not let them get in front of me. The driver rolled down the window and began yelling and threatening me.
I was hemmed in on all sides by traffic, including a tractor trailer to my left. If I let him in front of me, he would have me trapped. I wasn’t going to let that happen.
My wife was busy telling me to just let them in. She was telling me to let them have what they want, which she believed was to get in front of us. I was busy drawing a handgun and placing it out of sight, alongside my leg. I wasn’t sure if this was a case of road rage, or the early stages of a carjacking.
This is what I saw, from the perspective of my dash cam, as he attempted to cut us off..
About ten seconds later, I was able to dart to my left, in front of the truck and get out of that situation.
At least six people created limited liability companies, or LLCs, solicited people through social media and in some cases stole identities to apply for PPP and SBA loans, then using the funds obtained to fund criminal enterprises. This included guns and drugs picked up from a marijuana farm in California and flown back to Orlando.
Do you have a cash handling position? Why not hire someone who has been convicted of embezzlement? Daycare center? Why not hire a pedophile? This is the dumbest shit I have heard this week, but to be fair, it’s only Wednesday.
That doesn’t matter to many employers- they are all in. The city of Lakeland, Florida has done it (although they are excluding police and fire departments from that policy, because hiring criminals to be policemen and firemen is against state law).
So now we have a situation where the left is saying that I can’t get a job if I am a gun owner, or if I have ever opposed gay marriage, abortion, owned a gun, or any other ‘icky’ thought crime, but employers should be forced to hire criminals who have committed actual crimes.
Trump signed it into law, so he wasn’t the panacea that many on the right think he was.
A man kills two people and is driving around with their bodies in the bed of a stolen pickup truck that belonged to one of the victims when he is seen by a third man, who he also kills.
The bodies of the two in the bed of the truck were bound with tape on their hands and feet and had suffered several gunshot wounds. The third victim, who apparently was killed because he came upon the crime in progress was shot five times, including a coup de grace to the head.
That isn’t all- he had a LONG and busy criminal career. He was a one man crime spree.
In May 2020, he was driving a maroon Chevy Silverado when Atlanta police pulled him over for allegedly driving with a cell phone in his hand. Police said they smelled marijuana coming from the car and placed him under arrest. A search of his vehicle revealed 44 individually rolled and packaged marijuana cigarettes and $3,000 in cash. He was cited for distracted driving and possession of marijuana. During that arrest, police learned that Rhoden had a warrant out of East Point and took him into custody. I couldn’t find out what the warrant was for.
In August 2020, Rhoden was arrested in Indiana after a high-speed chase. A state trooper reportedly attempted to pull Rhoden over for speeding in excess of 100 miles per hour when he fled the scene. After a three-mile chase at speeds up to 150 miles per hour, he was arrested and charged with resisting law enforcement, a felony, and two misdemeanor counts of reckless driving. He was released on a $5,000 bond.
In April of 2021, an Uber driver called Atlanta police claiming that Rhoden and his group got into an argument with him so he decided to pull over and kick them out. According to a report, the Uber driver told police that Rhoden threatened him with a gun. Police said Rhoden admitted having a gun but denied using it to threaten the driver. Police couldn’t determine which party was telling the truth, so they let them go their separate ways- even though Rhoden was a convicted felon and should not have had a gun at all.
If this were reversed, and the killer were white with the victims being black, we would already be hearing about how the killer had racist motivations. But a black killer with a long, violent criminal history involving drug dealing and firearms with three white victims? Well, we can’t have people rushing to conclusions. Nope, no idea why he did it.
It gets harder and harder every day not to judge people on the basis of race. How many times do you have to be hit in the face with the facts of crime in this country before you just can’t overlook race any longer?
We are supposed to ignore the fact that blacks commit nearly half of the homicides in the country, despite the fact that only one in eight Americans is black.
We are asked to ignore that murder rates don’t increase with population, but instead increase in proportion to black population. For example:
Atlanta has a population of 524K, of which is 51% black, and had 157 murders for a murder rate of 30. If Atlanta were a country, it would have the 12th highest homicide rate in the world.
Baltimore has a population of 593K, which is 62% black, and had 335 murders for a murder rate of 56.4. If Baltimore were a country, it would have the highest homicide rate of any country in the world.
Dallas has a population of 1.3 million, which is 24% black, and had 200 murders for a murder rate of 15.4.
Sacramento has a population of 500K, which is 13 percent black, and had 43 murders for a murder rate of 8.6.
San Antonio has a population of 1.5 million, which is 7 percent black, and had 128 murders for a murder rate of 8.5.
While I still believe that we cannot predict the behavior of an individual by looking at demographics, it is undeniable that blacks are more likely to be violent criminals than any other demographic. Convince me otherwise. What other explanation fits the data?
Everyone is so afraid of being labeled a ‘racist’ that they are being forced to ignore what is right in front of them. This is gaslighting at its most potent. A black man walking through the whitest neighborhood in America is supposed to be in danger of a racist attack, but the facts rarely support that. How many white people could walk through a black neighborhood in Los Angeles, Atlanta, or Memphis without being attacked?
You know the truth. Blacks know the truth. Everyone does. To admit the truth is to invite the destruction of your entire life: lose your job, become labeled a racist, become a pariah. THAT is why no one dares speak the truth.
White Americans are the Jews in the attic of today’s America. I have seen this movie before. It always ends in a bloodbath.
I know the court case was in April and the murders happened five years ago, but this is the first I heard of it. This loser and his entire family killed the mother of his child and her entire family because of a child custody dispute. What in the hell is happening in this country?
The NFAC member who shot the cop? His family wants answers. They claim that he was sitting there minding his own business when a cop harassed him for no reason, and that the critter was just defending himself.
In cases like this, I like to look at the criminal history of those involved, so I took myself to the website of the Volusia county clerk to see if I could find a criminal history for the NFAC member. His name is Othal Wallace, and…
In Volusia county alone, he has a criminal history going back 8 years. I would note that his criminal history certainly goes much further back in history, since the earliest charge I could find for him was in 2013, and is listed as his 8th offense for driving with knowledge that is license is suspended or revoked.
Even so, Volusia county’s court records state that he has 5 felony arrests for aggravated battery with a firearm, domestic violence, being a habitual offender of driving on a suspended license, resisting arrest, and fleeing and eluding police.
He also has 14 misdemeanor arrests. Most of those are for punching women, driving with a suspended license, crashing into other vehicles while driving with a suspended license, running from the cops while driving with a suspended license, and crashing into other vehicles while running from the cops while driving with a suspended license. For many of these charges, he was also arrested because he didn’t bother coming to court to face any of the above charges.
Also, he has at least three different children with two different women (both of whom he has battered).
In short, he is a violent criminal who has no regard for the law, other people, or in fact anyone other than himself. He then blames white people for his situation and standing in life, because systemic racism or something.
He has convictions for domestic violence and for felonies. This makes him a prohibited person. The fact that he is pictured with firearms as a part of the NFAC and that he shot a cop should mean Federal firearms charges, but we all know it won’t. Instead, the FBI is all concentrating on investigating people for non violent crimes like trespassing in the capitol and raiding the wrong house while looking for Nancy Pelosi’s missing laptop.
Whenever a shooting suspect is described in the press, you can tell a lot about what happened by what they DON’T say. If the event is barely mentioned in the press, the shooter is always described as a “man” or a “teen” with no further details. This invariably means the shooter was black.
If the shooter is white, it is a national news story for weeks and is accompanied by nearly universal calls for gun control.
I just had the oddest experience that I have ever had in Las Vegas. It ended in a use of force incident.
My wife and I were playing Craps at Harrah’s this morning. My wife was standing to my left. We were at the end of the table and a woman walked up to the table on my right and tried to buy in with $25 cash and a slot machine ticket worth $77. The dealer told the woman that tickets were not accepted at the tables, and directed her to the cashier’s cage that was 20 feet away. The woman left the $25 in chips on the table and headed that way.
She returned 10 minutes later, and I pointed out to her that the chips she had left behind were still there. She said “I don’t care about that, it’s chump change,” then put the chips on the field. I was the shooter and rolled a 6. Her money was taken by the dealer. She asked the dealer to place another bet, the dealer asked for money, the woman again tried to use the slot machine ticket. My wife helpfully told her that she needed to use cash. She left. After she was gone, I made a joke: “That’s what happens when you legalize pot.” The entire table laughed, dealers included.
She came back a third time, about 15 minutes later. She stood so close to me that our shoulders were touching, despite the fact that no one else was at our end of the table. I slid my chips to my left, away from her and closer to my wife. It made me nervous. The woman said, pointing to my wife,”She isn’t helping me. I should just punch her.” I told the woman that this would be a bad idea and that she needed to leave. I asked the dealer to call security. I couldn’t leave, because I had about $200 in play. The woman left, and the dealer said, “She is someone else’s problem now.”
You guessed it- she was back 5 minutes later. The stupid ass tried using the slot ticket again. She said, “I don’t have any circle things (meaning chips?) to play with, so I will just take some of his.” She then reached in and grabbed a handful of my chips with her right hand.
I grabbed the offending hand HARD and twisted towards me as I stepped to my right, into her, planting my foot behind her. At the same time, I lifted her arm and pushed. Off balance, she started to fall and I was just starting to finish the move when my wife yelled “stop.” I eased up and let the woman keep her feet. Security was there pretty quickly. They removed her from the property. As they were doing so, she insisted that security get a supervisor and “fully document” the incident. She will be lucky if they don’t have her arrested.
My wife later said she was worried that I would be the one who got in trouble. She also said that she wasn’t sure that I needed to use force. I explained that the woman had already verbally signaled her willingness to get violent and was in the act of committing robbery. What I did was a clear case of the lawful use of force in self defense.
First time I have ever had to use force in my wife’s presence.
