Armed Homeowner Shoots Guy Fleeing Cops

The would-be, bad-guy wasn’t having the best day. Homeowner shoots man in his St. Paul yard who police say fled from stolen car.

He stole a car, and was being chased by police, but was so reckless that the cops lost sight of him. Then there was a 2 car crash involving the stolen vehicle, and the driver ran, right to an armed homeowner’s house. Where he got shot.

A sign visible in the home’s front window reads, “No Trespassing,” and “Violators will be shot. Survivors will be shot again!”

Heh. And he was shot more than once.

They took the guy who got shot to the hospital. They are questioning the homeowner about what happened, but he is not under arrest.

The guy who got shot was wanted on a prior incident of auto theft.

The beautiful thing is the safe was empty when he was trying to steal it. Indiana Man Finds Burglar Crushed by 900-Pound Safe in His Home.

The homeowner was checking his property—located about 70 miles north of Indianapolis—to determine what had been stolen after the robbery and was “cleaning the clutter in his garage.” That’s when Hollingsworth discovered his safe—which was suspended by a floor jack—had been knocked over.

“Upon further inspection Mr. Hollingsworth found a body lying underneath the safe,” the police said.

Karma is a bitch.

What’s The Opposite of Diversity?

University. And that goes double if you are in California. EXCLUSIVE: Berkeley assault suspect’s higher ed employment history more extensive than first thought.

Why are Leftist so violent?

Zachary Greenberg, the 28-year-old man facing three felony charges and one misdemeanor charge in connection to the incident involving Leadership Institute Field Representative Hayden Williams, has worked, volunteered, and studied at numerous institutions of higher education in California for the better part of a decade, a Campus Reform investigation has found.

His LinkedIn profile was removed within hours of him posting bail.

[The guy who got attacked,] who is an employee of Campus Reform’s parent organization, suffered a black eye and symptoms of a concussion after Greenberg punched him in the face on the campus of the University of California-Berkeley.

He was stupid enough to commit an assault on camera, but it being California, I wonder if he will face any justice.

The Left loves diversity, as long as you only think what they tell you think, and speak words that they have approved. Should I file this as a Hate Crime?

We Clearly Need Common Sense Cookie Control

I’m not sure if the guy or the cops make this Peak Florida. Florida man arrested for throwing cookie at girlfriend.

A couple gets into a fight. He throws a cookie at her.

In an arrest report, deputies noted that the victim had a red mark on the top of her forehead in her hairline.

Deputies say Smith admitted to throwing the cookie at the woman without her consent.

I think that speaks for itself. Though I’m not at all sure what it says.

The Left: We Should Feel Sorry For Smollett

Because even if he isn’t a victim, he’s a victim. Or something. Jussie Smollett deserves punishment for hate crime hoax, but he also deserves compassion.

Jussie Smollett is not Lex Luthor; he’s more like an inept shoplifter caught trying to steal a canned ham. We should consider feeling sorry for him.

OK. I gave this the 1.6 seconds of consideration it deserves, and I will reserve my compassion for the numerous victims of REAL hate crimes. Like the guy who was beaten (it was on security camera video) on the night that Smollett said he beaten, but wasn’t really.

Smollett is an attention-whore, who was unhappy with his salary (which I’ve seen reported at 1.8 million dollars), and so he manufactured a hate crime to raise his level of public awareness. Well, I can honestly say that I had never heard of him before he pulled this stunt, so that much worked anyway. But he has been written out of the last 2 episodes of whatever show he’s on, and “it’s in doubt whether he’ll return to the show at all.” No kidding. I can honestly say that I hope he never works as an actor again, though I know that the people in Hollywood will forgive him eventually.

Something the Left doesn’t like to dwell on; actions have consequences. Welcome to The Real World™.

And one of those consequences is spelled out in the fable, The Boy Who Cried “Wolf.” Cynthia Tucker: False claims undermine real justice.

If “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett is guilty, as Chicago police have charged, of falsely claiming he was the victim of a hate crime, he has done a grave disservice to the many Americans — black and brown, Muslim and Jew, gay and transgender — who have been or will be the actual victims of such attacks.

So no. I won’t have compassion for the idiot, Jussie Smollett. 30 years ago, I spent too much time helping to scrape friends off the sidewalk and take them to the hospital after real hate crimes. You see, if there is a violent crime, and cops don’t show up, the paramedics can’t come either. (It’s a violent crime!) And back in the day, one of the worst things you could do, was call the cops to the scene of a gay-bashing. They were bound to make a bad situation worse. So USA Today, and their “Let’s have compassion for the idiot who staged his own hate crime, and did a piss-poor job of it,” can go FUCK themselves. And take the asshole with them on the way out the door.

Never Underestimate the Power of Stupid

Or the fact that no one studies history anymore. Confederate monument vandals take aim at wrong Lee statue in Dunn.

They thought they were protesting General Robert E. Lee of Civil War fame. They were off by a little.

“I was surprised that anybody would do that to this museum statue,” Johnson said. “This is not a Civil War museum and this is not Robert E. Lee. This is General William C. Lee from United States Army Airborne from World War II, so I was hurt and surprised that somebody would actually do this.”

In the words of Agent Maxwell Smart, “Missed it by that much.”

Like I said. Stupid.

Whoever Mailed the Threatening Letter to Smollett…

They made a serious mistake. Smollett threat letter called “enormous mistake”; Purported attack location identified; Federal charges “certain”.

Since being created by Benjamin Franklin—yes, that Benjamin Franklin—the [United States Postal Inspection Service] has learned a few things about tracing mail-based crimes. Figuring out who mailed a letter has been made easier because, while most criminals know to wear gloves to avoid leaving fingerprints, most criminals also forget to leave their cellphones at home when they go to the mailbox.

According to CWBChicago [Crime in Wrigleyville and Boystown] there has already been stuff taken to a federal grand jury. The letter was mailed on January 18th.

Meanwhile, the FBI and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service has been quietly working on the origins of Smollett’s letter for nearly a month. Giving it far more “attention” than he knew.

Late Monday, CWBChicago received confirmation that the letter case has been before a federal grand jury and multiple subpoenas have been generated over the course of the investigation.

Possible charges, if it turns out to be a false flag, include “terroristic hoax” and federal obstruction charges.
