On Monday, a Sunrise, Florida, homeowner used a shotgun to open fire on three home invasion suspects, killing one and causing the remaining two to flee the scene. According to ABC News, homeowner Warren Darlow called 911 to report that three males had pulled into his driveway and were walking toward his home. He did not know them and worried that their intention was to rob the residence. Darlow talked to the police dispatcher, saying, “I got three black males at my house. Two jumped out. They’re getting ready to jump the fence.” He continued talking to the dispatcher until the three suspects allegedly shattered a glass door on the back the home, at which point, Darlow whispered, “Help. They’re in my house right now.” The next sound on the dispatch audio is of Darlow firing three blasts from a shotgun: Darlow missed all three suspects with the first shot, but he struck 21-year-old Albert Jones with the second. He said he saw Jones “reach toward something,” so he fired again. When the 911 dispatcher asked Darlow to clarify what was happening, he said, “I killed one, I think.” The other two suspects, 23-year-old Jose Coleman and 26-year-old Curtis Jefferies, fled the scene but were later apprehended by police.
As a follow up to this story.. No charges were filed against the homeowner. The two thugs who got away were later arrested by police and THEY will be charged with murder per Florida state law. How great is that?!? Talk about karma!! Another example of why it is SO important to arm yourself. These worthless pieces of garbage would have killed this homeowner who was simply home paying video games when he saw them pull into his driveway. But, he did the right thing by dialing 911 and then exercising his Second Amendment rights by standing his ground in his home. Outstanding!
The American flag once again flies over Hampshire College. A tumultuous November in Amherst, Massachusetts, that involved stolen and burned American flags may be followed by a calmer December. Hampshire College President Jonathan Lash announced Friday that a moratorium on flying the flag has ended. The decision comes less than one week since roughly 1,000 veterans descended upon the campus to protest the flag’s absence. “This morning we raised the United States flag to full staff at Hampshire College after a two-week discussion period about what the flag means to members of the Hampshire community,” Mr. Lash said on the school’s website. “College leadership, including the board of trustees, had decided on November 18 to lower the flag for a time to encourage uninhibited expression of deeply held viewpoints.” “We are alarmed by the overt hate and threats, especially toward people in marginalized communities, which have escalated in recent weeks. We did not lower the flag to make a political statement. Nor did we intend to cause offense to veterans, military families, or others for whom the flag represents service and sacrifice. We acted solely to facilitate much-needed dialogue on our campus about how to dismantle the bigotry that is prevalent in our society. We understand that many who hold the flag as a powerful symbol of national ideals and their highest aspirations for the country — including members of our own community — felt hurt by our decisions, and that we deeply regret.” Hampshire College attracted national attention earlier this month after Republican Donald Trump’s presidential election victory on Nov. 8. The school’s flag was stolen and a replacement was burned before dawn on Veterans Day. The situation spiraled completely out of control when administrators decided to fly the flag at half-staff as “an expression of grief over the violent deaths being suffered in this country and globally.” A throng of veterans arrived on campus Nov. 27 to condemn the school’s actions. “I was in Iraq 18 months. I got hurt, spent time at Walter Reed. I came home and there’s no way I’ll let anyone take down the flag, no way. It means a lot to me and my brothers,” veteran David Soucy told a local NBC affiliate. Mr. Lash said Friday that he would continue to have “multiple focus group sessions” with students, faculty, and staff who have questions about the flag.
If you haven’t seen the Water’s World episode about this, Google it. This town is SO liberal, that city hall has flying on the flagpole outside….the United Nations flag. And, no I’m not making that up, and no this isn’t the Onion. So, this bed-wetting, thumb-sucking extreme liberal college president doesn’t surprise us one bit. He probably didn’t envision the kind of backlash he’d get for taking down Old Glory like that. In the end, he made the right decision after enough pressure from vets, and probably many alums.
The Somali college student who used a vehicle and a butcher knife to attack people at Ohio State University (OSU) this week was inspired by the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) and deceased Yemeni-American al-Qaeda cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, according to the FBI. “At this time, we are not aware of anyone else being involved in the planning of this attack, but the investigation continues,” said Angela L. Byers, the special agent in charge of the FBI office in Cincinnati, reported the New York Times (NYT). “It appears that [the attacker Abdul Razak Ali Artan] may have at least been inspired by Anwar Awlaki and the Islamic State.” Citing two unnamed law enforcement sources, CNN added, “The sources point to Abdul Razak Ali Artan’s Facebook posts before his short-lived rampage on the Columbus campus. The posts referenced Awlaki, who was a leader of al Qaeda in Yemen. Sources also note the style of the attack was encouraged by ISIS in a recent online magazine.” Artan injured 11 people before he was shot dead by law enforcement. Although ISIS considers al-Qaeda to be its rival, various ISIS members and other Sunni jihadists have been known to be fans of Awlaki. The U.S. government executed Awlaki, but his propaganda has inspired some domestic attacks in the United States in the years after his death. Artan, a permanent U.S. resident born in Somalia, praised the radical American-born al-Qaeda cleric as a “hero” in a Facebook rant he posted just minutes before ramming his car into a cluster of pedestrians and then slashing some of them with a butcher knife Monday morning. “I am sick and tired of seeing [Muslims] killed & tortured everywhere,” he added, according to media reports. “If you want us Muslims to stop carrying lone wolf attacks, then make peace,” Artan also wrote. “We will not let you sleep unless you give peace to the Muslims. Despite ISIS claiming responsibility for the attack, investigators believe it was a lone wolf attack. Investigators are going through “the detailed analysis of electronic devices, social media accounts and other materials” linked to Artan and “have conducted dozens of interviews with family members, co-workers, neighbors and others,” noted Byers from the FBI. Artan spent seven years in Pakistan, a terrorist breeding ground, before entering the United States as a refugee in 2014.
And to think that when this story broke, local law enforcement in Ohio were tripping all over themselves saying they couldn’t say if this was terrorist related or not. We, of course, could tell instantly what this was. THIS is what Obama has so foolishly been importing into our country by the THOUSANDS. Keep this in mind the next time you hear some self-righteous, sanctimonious, liberal talking head on tv whine about Trump wanting to put a moratorium on immigrants from middle eastern, and northern Africa countries. That’s just basic common sense; something the agenda-driven, dominantly liberal mainstream media (and most Democrat politicians) don’t have.
