57 Year Old Robert L. Dear Arrested in Planned Paenthood Shooting, 3 Dead, No Real Info or Motive for Murders and Obama Ponces on Oppoertunity to Call for More Gun Control
HEY OBAMA, HOW ABOUT YOU SHOW SOME RESPECT TO THE FAMILIES WHO LOST LOVED ONES, BEFORE YOU MAKE THIS POLITICAL?
After a 6 hour standoff with law enforcement, following the shootings that took place at the Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, CO, 57 year old Robert L. Dear surrendered to police. The way the incident took place, the suspect was either going to leave the building in a body bag or in handcuffs. Robert Lewis Dear opted for the latter. Dear is currently being held without bond on Saturday at the El Paso County Criminal Justice Center.
Mr. Dear, 57, was being held without bond on Saturday at the El Paso County Criminal Justice Center. Jail records said he was scheduled to appear in court on Monday. Mr. Dear, whom the authorities described as 6 feet 4 inches tall and 250 pounds, appeared to have ties to the Carolinas. The police said they could not yet offer a motive for the shooting
Those who sadly were killed in yesterday’s senseless shooting have not yet been buried, their families, friends and loved ones are still reeling from the shock and we really know nothing about the suspect, Robert Lewis Dear, his motive or mental state. But that did not stop Barack Obama from rushing to politicize the tragedy by calling for more gun control. Because a liberal never lets a terrible tragedy go to waste. And of course Obama didn’t, because that is what community agitators do. They don’t listen for the facts, they rush to push their decisive agendas. Mr. President, one might say enough is politically enough when it comes to your ridiculous, liberal actions. Obama is so quick to rail on gun control laws, maybe he first should follow the U.S. Constitution as a president. If the president actually waited long enough, we will probably learn that Robert L. Dear probably has a mental condition and some other factors that lead to this heinous crime and more gun controls would have prevented nothing.
President Obama on Saturday called for additional gun control measures in the United States, after the slaying of three people Friday at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado.
In a written statement, Obama said that regardless of the motive, it was unacceptable that these sort of mass shootings happen so frequently in the United States.
“This is not normal. We can’t let it become normal,” he said. “If we truly care about this — if we’re going to offer up our thoughts and prayers again, for God knows how many times, with a truly clean conscience — then we have to do something about the easy accessibility of weapons of war on our streets to people who have no business wielding them. Period. Enough is enough.”
Obama, have some class and lets wait until those that were killed have had a burial. I am sure after that yo can find all the time to politicize their deaths.
Oh and by the way, guess where President Barack Obama was when he was first notified of the active shooter situation in Colorado Springs, CO … hold it, hold it, hold it … why golfing of course. I hope the issues of the world didn’t ruin his game.
Waffle House Waitress Shot & Killed by 45 Year Old Johnny Max Mount in Biloxi, MS Because of Argument over a Cigarette
SERIOUSLY, A WOMAN IS DEAD BECAUSE SHE TOLD A CUSTOMER SMOKING WAS NOT ALLOWED ON THE PREMISES?
We all know that cigarettes kill, but this is hardly the manner that the Surgeons General ascribes to … A 52 year old Waffle House waitress was shot in the head and killed at a Biloxi, MS Waffle House on Hwy. 90, near the Coast Coliseum. According to reports, 45 year old Johnny Max Mount walked into a Biloxi Waffle House, pulled a 9 mm handgun from underneath his shirt, and shot the employee in the head after she told Mount that he couldn’t smoke inside the establishment. UNREAL. The 52 year old victim and Waffle House employee, only known as Julie, was transported to Merrit Health, where she died from the gunshot wound. Johnny Max Mount was arrested at the scene, has been charged with murder and is being held in the Harrison County Adult Detention Center on a $2 million bond.
Hmm, who thinks that mental illness is not also apart of this crime?
Around 1 a.m. Friday morning, officials say 45-year-old Johnny Max Mount walked into a Biloxi Waffle House on Hwy. 90, near the Coast Coliseum. As other customers dined, Mount reportedly argued with a Waffle House employee, identified by a restaurant spokesperson only as “Julie”, who told Mount he couldn’t smoke inside the establishment.
Following the argument, police say Mount pulled a 9 mm handgun from underneath his shirt, and shot the employee in the head.
“The suspect was arrested on the scene. When officers arrived, he was still on scene and was taken into custody,” said Sgt. Donnie Dobbs, Biloxi Police.
The 52-year-old victim was transported to Merrit Health, where she died from the gunshot wound.
Leastrade says he knows things can get crazy around the holidays, but it’s unbelievable that Friday’s crime could happen so close to home. He hopes this incident is the last.
Just unreal, one innocent person dead and a man will be spending the rest of his life most like in prison over being told not to smoke inside a restaurant.
ARREST MADE IN THE SHOOTING DEATH OF 9 YEA OLD TYSHAWN LEE … GANG RELATED MURDER.
27 year old Corey Morgan has been arrested and charged with first degree murder in the shooting death of 9 year old Tyshawn Lee. The boy was shot in the face and back on November 2, 2015 as he headed to a park down the street from his grandmother’s house to play basketball. According to the police, Tyshawn Lee was lured into an alley in the 8000 block of South Damen Avenue on November 2, 2015 and killed because of his father’s gang ties. Police believe Tyshawn was killed in retaliation for the October 13 murder of Tracey Morgan, 25, who is the brother of Corey Morgan.
The Chicago Police Department announced on Friday that they have arrested a 27-year-old Chicago man for the brutal murder of a 9-year-old boy who was lured into an alley and executed earlier this month.
The suspect was identified as Corey Morgan, of Chicago, by the police department. Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy announced a 10 a.m. news conference to formally announce the arrest and charges against Morgan.
Police said they believe Tyshawn was targeted because of his father’s gang ties. The father, Pierre Stokes, previously told reporters he is not in a gang and does not believe his son’s killing was retaliation. Stokes is currently on probation for a 2011 armed robbery conviction. He was arrested and charged in June 2014 with unlawful use of a weapon, but has pleaded not guilty to that charge.
McCarthy previously described the Nov. 2 killing as part of a string of violence between rival gangs on the city’s South Side that started in August.
“Tyshawn Lee was murdered in probably the most abhorrent, cowardly, unfathomable crime that I’ve witnessed in 35 years of policing,” McCarthy told reporters earlier this month as police searched for tips
One Man Dead and 3 Women Hurt in a Shooting a Dispute Over a Dice Game at Tennessee State University in Nashville, TN
One man is dead and three women have been wounded as a result of a shooting that took place at Tennessee State University in Nashville, TN. According to accounts, the shooting took place over a dispute over a dice game. The incident occurred outside courtyard of the Floyd-Payne Campus Center at approximately 10:52 p.m. Thursday, as witnesses heard gunshots prompting the call to TSU police.
Officials said the victim who was killed was believed to be a 19-year-old who was not a TSU student. The three females were TSU coeds. Two females that were wounded and transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center. The third one’s injuries did not require medical attention. None of the girls injuries were considered life threatening. The shooting suspect is also said not to be a TSU student and still remains at large.
Authorities say a man was killed and three women wounded in a shooting at Tennessee State University in Nashville Thursday night.
The gunman was at large early Friday, the campus was on lockdown and classes were cancelled for the day.
According to the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department’s verified Twitter account, the gunfire was apparently prompted by a dispute over a dice game in an outdoor courtyard.
In a statement, the school said two males who weren’t TSU students “may have been gambling. It is reported the two exchanged gunfire and one was fatally wounded.”
Really, you would kill some one over a dice game? What may make this incident even more disturbing is that neither of one the individuals involved in the shooting, the victim or the suspect, were TSU students. Then why the hell were they on campus putting actual TSU students at risk?

Police said Alan Garcia was traveling westbound on Interstate 40 and was attempting to exit the freeway when Torrez’s vehicle cut across traffic and forced Garcia out of his lane. Investigators said Garcia and Torrez exchanged words before Torrez pulled out a gun and fired at Garcia’s truck.
Lilly Garcia was struck at least once in the head. She was rushed to a local hospital, but was later pronounced dead. Her father and brother were unhurt.
UPDATE I: Anonymous Tipster turns Torrez into Police.
Torrez told an acquaintance that “he shot the girl on Interstate 40″ and that Garcia’s “red truck tried to run Tony off the road,” the court documents said. The acquaintance later became an anonymous tipster to police, and his information was used in Torrez’s arrest warrant.
After he was arrested, Torrez “confessed” to the shooting, said police Chief Gorden Eden.
The anonymous tipster told police that Torrez’s address on his driver’s license and registration weren’t correct, and gave two other addresses for Torrez on the same street.
It appears the family did not know the suspect, police told CNN affiliate KOAT.

33 year old NYPD officer Randolph Holder was shot and killed while responding to an incident of a man with a gun in East Harlem, NY. Holder and his partner responded to a report of shots fired at East 102nd Street on the city’s Upper East Side where witnesses told the officers a man had fled on a foot path and where the suspect came across another man and stole his bicycle at gunpoint. Holder and his partner ran toward the danger, not away, but toward the danger. Shots were fired and sadly officer Holder was shot in the head and later died at Harlem Hospital. The suspect was shot in the leg and arrested. Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said during a somber press conference that Holder, who emigrated from Guyana, was a third-generation police officer, following in his father and grandfather’s footsteps in the line of duty.
Rest in Peace Officer Holder
A New York City police officer was shot and killed late Tuesday in the East Harlem section of the city after he responded to a report of shots fired and an armed robbery.
Police Commissioner Bill Bratton identified the murdered officer as Randolph Holder, 33, a five-year veteran of the force. Holder was an officer in the department’s Housing Bureau, which polices the city’s public housing developments.
“Tonight, he did what every other officer in the NYPD does,” Bratton said. “When the call comes, he ran toward danger. It was the last time he will respond to that call.”
Bratton said Holder and his partner responded to a report of shots fired at East 102nd Street on the city’s Upper East Side. Witnesses told the officers a man had fled on a foot path and the officers encountered another man who told them an assailant had stolen his bicycle at gunpoint. Bratton said the officers confronted the suspect and pursued him to the intersection of East 120th Street and the FDR Drive, where gunfire rang out. One witness told Fox 5 that she heard at least five shots.
Holder was shot in the forehead and rushed to Harlem Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 10:22 p.m. Dozens of uniformed and plainclothes officers lined the hospital hallway while other officers held each other as they arrived.
THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE … WHEN THE WALKING DEAD BECOMES THE SHOT DEAD.
People thought it was all part of the act at ZombiCon in Fort Myers, Florida until they realized the grim truth, it was real. Multiple shots were fired last night during the ZombiCon event that left 1 dead and 4 wounded. According to the police, the shooting happened at about 11:44 p.m. in downtown Fort Myers at a “ZombiCon” event, Fort Myers.

A man hunt is underway for the shooter who remains at large.
Chaos broke out at a zombie-themed street festival in downtown Fort Myers, Florida, after a shooting left one man dead and four other people wounded.
Crowds of festivalgoers fled screaming through the streets after the shots rang out late Saturday at ZombiCon.
“It cleared out fast and cop cars and ambulances came,” said Savannah Holden, who watched the panic unfold from a hotel balcony.
NBC2 News TV
One would have to think that some one caught something on video. The whole point of Zombicon is to be seen and take pictures. Everyone at these events have their cell phones rolling. Police asked attendees to share smartphone video from the incident at an event expected to draw more than 20,000 people. However, one cannot help but notice the irony, individuals who witnessed the shooting at ZombiCon said to reporters that it is the first time I have ever seen anyone dead. Imagine the fact that there be death involved with Zombies.
Public Information Officer Lieutenant Victor Medico for Fort Myers talks about the shooting at ZombiCon in Fort Myers.
The organizers of Zombicon, Pushing DaiZies, Inc. are deeply saddened by the news of what happened within the footprint of our event. We take the safety of our patrons very seriously and take precautions in hiring security and police officers for our annual event. Our prayers go out to the family members and individuals involved in the incident.
What is this world coming to when you cannot participate in a walking dead event without some one actually being shot dead?
11 Year Old Boy Faces 1st Degree Murder Charges in the Shooting Death of 8 Year Old MaKayla Dyer in White Pine, TN
YES YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS, YOU ALSO HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO USE AND CARE FOR THEM …
An 11 year old boy has been charged with the shooting death of his 8 year old neighbor, MaKayla Dyer. The unidentified boy, due to his age, is reported to have shot MaKayla Dyer with a 12-guage shotgun over a discussion about puppies. That’s correct. An 8 year old is dead today over puppies. For an eleven year old to do something this callous and heinous, there is more going on with this child than an argument over puppies. According to accounts from a neighbor, Chasity Atwood, “He asked the little girl to see her puppies. She said no and laughed and then turned around, looked at her friend and said, ‘Let’s go get the — ‘ and never got ‘puppies’ out.” The boy then shot her in the chest with a shotgun owned by the boy’s father. Look for the father to be charged with reckless endangerment or negligent homicide as well. Who the hell in their right mind owns guns and just has them out in the open with children present in the home?
Authorities were called to Robin Road in White Pine around 7:30 p.m. Saturday on a report of a shooting.
Deputies found the girl on the ground with a gunshot wound to the chest. She was taken to Morristown-Hamblen Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Sheriff Bud McCoig said the young girl’s next-door neighbor, a fifth grader at White Pine Elementary School, used his father’s 12-gauge single-shot shotgun to shoot and kill the girl from inside his house. The victim was in second grade at the same school.
Officials have not released the name of the shooter or the victim, but neighbors identified the victim as Maykayla Dyer.
Sheriff McCoig would not release any details on a possible motive, but neighbors say the two were arguing over a puppy.
“Wanting to see a puppy, the little girl laughed and told him no, and that was it,” neighbor Chasity Arwood said.
Dyer was transported to Morristown-Hamblen Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. The boy is being held in juvenile court on charges of first-degree murder.
At Dyer’s school on Monday, principal Bill Walker told reporters that “it’s not just the school that’s hurting — it’s the whole community,” he said, adding, “We remember her smile and her beautiful face and her interaction with her classmates.”
Manhunt Underway For Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks After Kentucky State Trooper Joseph Cameron Ponder Gunned Down After Traffic Stop (Update: Police Kill Suspect After Stand Off)
Once again we ask the question, Do Police Lives Matter?
A manhunt has been launched after the shooting death of 31 year old Kentucky State Trooper Joseph Cameron Ponder. The incident occurred Sunday night, 9/13, at approximately 10:20 pm CT after Trooper Ponder pulled over a vehicle on Interstate 24. The driver fled from the traffic stop where the pursuit ensued with the suspect stopping abruptly around the 49 mile marker when the suspect jammed on his breaks. The suspect then got out of his vehicle and fired several shots into the police cruiser. The suspect then fled on foot and is still at large. Trooper Ponder was taken to a hospital in Princeton, Kentucky, where he later died of his injuries.
Trooper Joseph Cameron Ponder, 31, was killed after a driver fled from a traffic stop on Interstate 24 at 10:20 p.m. local time (11:20 p.m. ET).
“A pursuit ensued with the suspect stopping abruptly around the 49 mile marker, causing the front of Trooper Ponder’s police cruiser to make contact with the rear of the suspect vehicle,” Trooper First Class Jay Thomas said in a statement.
He added: “At this time, the driver of the suspect vehicle fired several shots into the police cruiser striking the hood, windshield and Trooper Ponder multiple times. The suspect fled the scene on foot.”
Rest in Peace Trooper Joseph Cameron Ponder
The shooting suspect who murdered Kentucky state trooper Joseph Cameron Ponder has been identified as 25 year old Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks. Police said he should be considered armed and dangerous.
The suspect has been identified as Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks, 25, of Missouri. He was described as a black male who is about 5-foot-5 inches and 140 pounds.
Police say he ran off after shooting Ponder. A search was under way Monday morning in Lyon County, Ky.
Johnson-Shanks’ hometown couldn’t immediately be verified by police, but online records show him living in the Florissant area. He was arrested twice in 2014 in the St. Louis area, once for destruction of property and once for interfering with a police officer.
A social media site that appears to be Johnson-Shanks’ features a photo collage of Martin Luther King, Malcom X and Michael Brown. He reposted photos of memorial sites for Michael Brown and others killed by police, asking “Why is it taking so long to arrest those officers.”
A man suspected of killing a Kentucky trooper was shot and killed by state police early Monday morning, police confirmed to FoxNews.com.
Authorities said 25-year-old Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks, of Missouri, was located in a remote rural area near I-24 around 7 a.m., following an all-night manhunt. Johnson-Shanks was armed with a handgun and did not comply with several commands to drop his weapon, according to Sgt. Mike Webb.
“That gave the trooper closest to him no choice but to fire his agency-issued weapon, striking him multiple times,” Webb said.

WAR ON POLICE CONTINUES … POLICE LIVES MATTER!!!
The manhunt is on for the individuals responsible for the murder of the 32-year veteran Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz with the Fox Lake, Illinois Police Department. The 52 year old officer was set to retire at the end of September. Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz was shot dead while on a routine patrol. Sadly, the officer was found shot in the head.

Charles Joseph Gliniewicz, RIP
A manhunt enters the late night hours as law enforcement continue to search for three suspects wanted in the fatal shooting of a Fox Lake police officer.
The slain officer has been identified as 32-year veteran Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz with the Fox Lake Police Department. He was supposed to retire last month but the chief — who stepped down — asked him to stay on for one more month. He was involved in several youth programs in the area, and he had a wife and four sons.
Authorities say they are searching for two white men and one black man.
Sources say the officer’s gun and pepper spray were taken.
A manhunt for three suspects continued into the night after a police officer was fatally shot in far north suburban Fox Lake Tuesday morning. Police say the suspects, described as two white males and one black male, should be considered armed and dangerous.
The Lake County Sheriff’s Office said the search perimeter was released just after 10 p.m. after a 14 hour search coordinated between local, state and federal law enforcement. The scene has been turned over to the Lake County Major Crime Task Force, which will be the lead agency on the investigation.
The Lake County Sheriff’s Dept. identified the slain officer as 52-year-old Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz, a 32-year veteran of the force and married father of four sons in their teens and early 20s who was well-known and well-liked in the community. Lt. Gliniewicz went by his middle name, and was nicknamed “G.I. Joe.”
Gliniewicz grew up in the Fox Lake area where he served as a peace officer, graduated from Antioch Community High School and obtained a Master’s degree in criminal justice from Kaplan University. He was a leader of the Fox Lake Police Department Explorer Post, which helps mentor young people interested in careers in law enforcement, and an Army veteran who served in active duty and reserve from 1980 to 2007. He left the military with a rank of First Sergeant.
Gliniewicz had been married for 26 years and was to retire at the end of September. He met with Fox Lake’s mayor Monday to talk about his retirement plans and ensure that the Explorers troop he led continued without him.
