The Left Will Blame the Gun

More details have emerged about the shooting death of Dollar Store clerk. 15-year-old arrested in shooting death of Dollar General clerk

The Left will blame the gun, as if it had a mind of its own, or was imbued with an evil force, but the truth is the evil was in this kid.

“It’s just kind of unbelievable. He so young, but I don’t know, man. He ain’t got no God, I guess,” [Aris] Joseph [father of the dead-woman’s children] said. “That’s God’s job, you know. He got the last say. He’s got the last judgment. So I’m gonna leave that situation in God’s hands and I’m gonna focus on what’s important for me and my kids.”

The Left will blame the gun, and make no mention of the fact that this 15-year-old has no conception of Right and Wrong, Good versus Evil. This 15-year-old took a life casually, not in self-defense, not because his demands weren’t met, but because he has no regard for human-life.

How did we get to this point?

And him being 15-years-old, he will be back on the streets in no time.

The Future of Football

Tackle Football and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy. I’m not sure why anyone under the age of 18 is allowed to play today. Bob Costas on the future of football: ‘This game destroys people’s brains’

I don’t like Bob Costas, but then again I don’t like NFL football. (Or college or whatever.) But he makes some good points.

Can you change the game to make it safe? Probably not. And if it isn’t safe – which it’s not – why would parents let their children play?

“The cracks in the foundation are there,” Costas said. “The day-to-day issues, as serious as they may be, they may come and go. But you cannot change the nature of the game. I certainly would not let, if I had an athletically gifted 12- or 13-year-old son, I would not let him play football.”

He goes on about how in the future, the sport will die. When at some mythical date, parents realize the truth about football. So why can’t these parents read the data today?

What it will probably take is a suit against a school, and then all the schools will drop football like a hot potato.

Bad Guy With Gun. Good Guy With Gun.

This seems to be lacking from a lot of the coverage of the latest tragedy. ‘Hero’ neighbor got his rifle, shot at Texas church gunman

A concerned neighbor who heard the Texas church massacre unfolding on Sunday went and grabbed his rifle and tried to stop it — opening fire on the shooter and chasing him down in a stranger’s truck, a report says

Tony Anthony Mason Jr – An Off Duty D.C. Police Officer – Killed In Baltimore

Baltimore is in nearly the same shape as Chicago (in relation to homicides.) I can’t remember the relative size in terms of population, except that Baltimore is smaller than the Windy City. D.C. Police Officer Fatally Shot In Baltimore During Ceasefire

40-year old Tony Anthony Mason Jr., had been shot in the body. He was taken to an area hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

The Baltimore Police Department reports Mason is a sergeant with the Metropolitan Police Department in D.C., and was off duty at the time of the shooting.

He and a companion were sitting in a car when an as-yet-unidentified man walked up and started shooting.

Community activists had called for a ceasefire from Nov. 3-5 after the annual homicide rate for Baltimore reached 300 for the third year in a row.

Judge Released Him on Probation 11 Days Before He Raped and Killed

JusticeI started this post 3 days ago, and couldn’t decide if I thought it was really an interesting story. But I keep seeing it pop up in new places, so it must be of interest to some. Prosecutor argued for detainment, but judge released Tulsa teen on probation 11 days before slaying of teacher, rape of elderly woman.

Deonte Green appeared in juvenile court less than two weeks before he is alleged to have raped an 81-year-old woman and killed a Broken Arrow teacher in a robbery attempt, with the judge releasing the teen on probation despite prosecutor concerns that he would “hurt or kill a homeowner.”

Green is 16-years-old, so his case is tried in Juvenile Court. Which does impact the rules.

The latest place I’ve seen this story: Oklahoma Teen Released on Probation Days Before Slaying | US News

“One of my main concerns about Deonte was that he continued to break into people’s homes and, not steal televisions or game consoles, but instead always zeroed in on firearms,” [Assistant District Attorney Julianne] Burton wrote. “I argued that Deonte was either going to be shot by a homeowner rightfully protecting their home and family or that he was going to hurt or kill a homeowner he came across.”

It seems wrong that the system knew this person, Green, was a danger to the community, and that they couldn’t do anything about it. But maybe that is the price we pay for living in a free society. We can’t just lock up whoever the DA thinks should be locked up.
