At least 11 people were shot to death and about 70 wounded in a weekend burst of violence in Chicago
I live near 3 senior apartments/assisted living/nursing homes. I hope a dispute between residents at these never escalates to a bombing!
A feud between two apartment neighbors began a chain reaction that led to the shooting death of a firefighter in Long Beach, California, on Monday, prosecutors said.
Thomas Man Kim was charged with murder after authorities allege the 77-year-old set off an explosive device in his apartment trying to kill the woman who lived in the unit above his own. The attempt failed, but the device started a fire, which brought the Long Beach Fire Department to the scene just before 4 a.m. on Monday.
Chicago police say at least 11 people were shot, including three who died, in a three-hour span on the city’s South and West sides.
How’s that radical gun control working for you, Chicago??
It’s not the guns, there are 300 million of these in private hands – including mine – in the US. It’s the sick freak on the trigger. Bring back the insane asylums the liberals closed down in the 1960’s!
The FBI has launched a review about its handling of a warning about the teenager accused of carrying out Wednesday’s school shooting in Florida.
Nikolas Cruz, 19, has appeared in court charged with murder. With 17 people killed, this is the deadliest US school shooting since 2012.
Mr Cruz, who had links with a white supremacist group, reportedly commented on YouTube last year that he would be a professional “school shooter.”
A user alerted authorities to the post.
Teachers were also warned about Mr Cruz, who was not allowed on campus with a backpack, US media report.
Hey SWJs (social justice warriors), check out this history of communist China:
Horrified by images of American students shouting down and physically attacking speakers on their campuses, some commentators have reasonably invoked memories of the Chinese Cultural Revolution. The problem with that analogy is that it is simply lost on most readers, including most younger than middle age.
So what exactly was this “Cultural Revolution” thing anyway? The U.S. media does a wonderful job of recalling atrocities that they can associate with the Right, while far worse horrors stemming from the Left vanish into oblivion. In reality, not only does the Cultural Revolution demand to be remembered and commemorated, it also offers precious lessons about the nature of violence, and the perils of mob rule.
In 2019, Communist China will celebrate its seventieth anniversary, and in that short time it has been responsible for no fewer than three of the worst acts of mass carnage in human history. These include the mass murders of perceived class enemies in the immediate aftermath of the revolution (several million dead), and the government-caused and -manipulated famine of the late 1950s, which probably killed some 40 million. Only when set aside these epochal precedents does the Cultural Revolution of 1966-76 seem like anything other than a unique cataclysm.
Emphasis is mine.
This lesson of insane mob rule is also a prime reason to own firearms and how to use them for self defense.
