Prosecutors REALLY Hate Self-defense

JusticeThey will do almost anything to charge someone, even when the circumstances are clear. DA files motion to withdraw involuntary manslaughter charges

The Criminal Justices System is not interested in Justice. It is interested in winning. Some members of the system are also interested in reinforcing the idea that you must be completely dependent on the state for your safety. (Otherwise they might be out of a job!) And they have not dropped all charges against this woman.

First let’s talk about the 911 tape. Originally the prosecutor had this woman – who shot her abusive husband – in jail on $100,000 bond. Her lawyer got that reduced to $25,000 when the judge heard the 911 tape.

On the 911 tape, Helena Crosby was heard begging dispatchers for help during the Sept. 24 incident. On the recording, dispatchers told Helena Crosby to lock the doors and stay inside while police were on the way, but as Helena Crosby and the dispatcher were talking her husband re-entered the home and Helena Crosby began to scream just moments before she allegedly shot him.

She is charged with aggravated assault and simple assault.

Helena Crosby’s attorney, Joel Wiest, of Sunbury, said the charges should have never been placed on his client because she is innocent. Wiest said his client acted in self-defense because she was physically abused for years by her husband.

“The facts unerringly show that Helena (Crosby) was in reasonable fear for her life at the time of the incident in question and therefore she can’t possibly be guilty of any of the charges against her,” Wiest said.

But the prosecutor – Northumberland County District Attorney Tony Matulewicz – can’t advance his own career with that story.

The Latest Millennial Stupidity: They Won’t Touch Raw Meat

Poor dears are afraid to get their hands dirty with that slimy meat. Millennials so squeamish about handling raw meat it is to be sold in touch-free packs

“Customers, particularly younger ones, are quite scared of touching raw meat,” Katherine Hall, product development manager for meat, fish and poultry at the retailer, told The Sunday Times.

The solution? Change the packaging to match their phobias.

So-called millennials – those born after 1980 – have been dubbed the “snowflake” generation for their political correctness and apparent inability to become reconciled to some of everyday life’s harsher truths, such as the fact that meat may have come from a dead animal.

Grow up. (Hat tip to The Road Kill Diaries.)

The Resistance (Musical Edition)

2Cellos is a Croatian group consisting of classically trained Luka Šulić and Stjepan Hauser. Their work has become surprisingly well known, considering most people don’t pay attention to stuff like cello duets.

This is 2Cellos cover of “The Resistance,” which was originally by the British group Muse. It was on their 2011 debut album 2Cellos.

100-year-old Technology is NOT the Problem

Oleg Volk wants you to know… Technology isn’t the devil.

Until 1994, any teen in America could buy a 30-round magazine, in person or by mail. From 1957 to 1968, they could buy an AR15 to go with it, mail order if they so wished. After 1968, they would have to be at least 18 and buy it in person…still, plenty of teens and young adults had them with few problems. Sure, mass shootings could happen…with 3-shot hunting rifles wielded by much older people, who in turn were suppressed by lawful college students with personal rifles.

We created defenseless-victim zones, and we glorify the insane. Why are we surprised at the result? Go see Oleg Volk’s image – they are always worthwhile. And he has more to say as well.

So what caused this? It isn’t 100+ year-old technology. The changes in the culture – some might call it the disintegration of the culture.

An Epic Fail of the Victim-selection Process

If you are going to break into homes, you shouldn’t pick the home of a cop. Off-duty officer shoots man trying to break into home on…

So the cop and his family woke up in response to someone banging on the door at 12:30 AM.

“The sergeant armed himself and came to door yelling several commands, ‘Who are you?’ ‘What do you want?'” Acevedo said. “The suspect ignored commands and questions and kept pounding on the door.”

When he broke a window on his way to breaking in, the officer shot several times, hitting the would-be bad-guy at least once.

So does this qualify as “Stupid Criminals.”

A Machete Crime in London Every 90 Minutes

More dispatches from the place where Great Britain used to be. One machete attack happens every 90 minutes on UK streets | Daily Mail Online

One machete crime every 90 minutes on Britain’s streets as police try to deal with thugs carrying out murders, rapes and burglaries

Curiously, machetes are not on the list of banned weapons, which includes everything from ninja stars to telescoping batons.

The article contains a list of some of the crimes. Everything from people hacked to death, to one guy who had his hand cut off.

Figures uncovered using freedom of information requests show that in the last two months of 2017 police dealt with 928 crimes involving machetes. This is an average of 15 a day – or one every 90 minutes.

Statistics for 2017 show a 21 percent increase in crimes where a “knife or sharp object” were used. The authorities promise even more knife control. Doing the same thing and expecting a different result is one definition of insanity. (Hat tip to Milo)

Anti-gay, Anti-Jewish Muslim Cleric Invited to Speak at Orlando Middle School

Because nothing says “positive parenting” like calling for the killing of all gays and all Jews. Sheik Who Called For Gays and Jews to Be Killed ‘Special Guest Speaker’ At Orlando Middle School  – DANGEROUS

Less than two years after 49 people were slaughtered by an Islamic terrorist at a gay nightclub in Orlando, the Greenwood Lakes Middle School in coordination with Muslim community groups in Orlando have decided to host a Syrian sheik who has called for the killing of gays and all Jews.

The conference was scheduled from the 14th, but I can find very little coverage of this guy in relation to Orlando. I guess the media is still in the habit of soft-pedaling hate speech when it comes from a minority.

Al Nabulsi, the Muslim extremist guest speaker, is notorious for making anti-American, anti-gay, and anti-Jew comments, all of which have been caught on camera and translated into English. Nonetheless, he has been invited back into the very same community that is still struggling to recover from a jihadi who wreaked havoc on innocents at the Pulse nightclub.

It isn’t clear to me how the conference ended up at the middle school. But some things are clear.

The fact that Al Nabulsi has been invited as a special guest to speak about parenting in Orlando at a tax payer-funded middle school of all places is call for alarm, given the fact that on June 12, 2016, Omar Mateen carried out an ISIS-inspired Islamic terror attack at the Orlando Pulse gay nightclub, killing 49 people and wounding 58 others in what is the second most deadly Islamic terror attack on U.S. soil after 9/11.

Not that the media like to talk about this attack in terms of terrorism. It is used only to support the gun control agenda.

Milo may have been banned by various Social Media fascists, like Twitter, but he is still around. And still Dangerous.
