MORE FREEDOM OF SPEECH IN EUROPE …
German newspaper, The Hamburger Morgen Post, was firebombed overnight as police state that a “burning object” and rocks were thrown through a window. The MOPO as it is locally known had reprinted cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed from Charlie Hebdo. The newspaper featured three Charlie Hebdo cartoons of the prophet Mohammed on its front page on Thursday, together with the headline “This much freedom must be possible!” No one was injured in the fire at the editorial offices of the Hamburger Morgenpost.
Berlin (AFP) – A German tabloid that reprinted cartoons from the French satirical paper Charlie Hebdo lampooning the Prophet Mohammed was targeted in firebombing Sunday, police said.
With security services on high alert after a killing spree in Paris by Islamic extremists, police in the northern German port city of Hamburg said no one was injured in the blaze at the headquarters of the regional daily Hamburger Morgenpost, which caused only slight damage.
“Rocks and then a burning object were thrown through the window,” a police spokesman told AFP.
“Two rooms on lower floors were damaged but the fire was put out quickly.”
The Hamburger Morgenpost, known locally as the MOPO, had splashed the Charlie Hebdo cartoons on its front page after the massacre at the Paris publication, running the headline “This much freedom must be possible!”
Police said the attack had occurred at about 0120 GMT and that two young men seen acting suspiciously near the scene were detained. State security has opened an investigation, a spokesman added.
Joshua Williams … Ferguson, MO’s “Peaceful” Protester Charged with Setting Fire at Berkeley Quik Trip During Riot
IT ALL DEPENDS ON HOW ONE DEFINES PEACEFUL: It is safe to say, anything you hear that the protesters are in Ferguson, Missouri, you can almost count on the opposite.
19 year old Joshua Williams has been arrested by St. Louis police on Friday after several local media outlets and store surveillance captured images of him trying to set a pile of wood on fire outside the QuikTrip on North Hanley Road in Berkeley early Wednesday during the riots following the police shooting of an armed black teenager. According to court documents, Williams confessed to setting fires at the store in a videotaped interview. Williams was charged with arson in the first degree, a felony. He is also charged with felony burglary and misdemeanor stealing for allegedly taking a lighter, gum and money from the store. Williams was being held Saturday on $30,000 bond.
One of the most frequently quoted and photographed Ferguson protesters was charged Saturday with setting fire to a Berkeley convenience store last week.
St. Louis County police arrested Joshua Williams, 19, of St. Louis, on Friday after several local media outlets and store surveillance captured images of him trying to set a pile of wood on fire outside the QuikTrip on North Hanley Road early Wednesday.
Williams confessed to setting fires at the store in a videotaped interview, according to court documents.
Police say Williams entered the QuikTrip shortly after looters shattered its glass doors during protests of the death of Antonio Martin, 18, who a police officer had shot earlier at the Mobil station across the street. Surveillance footage from the Mobil store shows Martin point what police say is a gun at a Berkeley officer before the officer fatally shoots him.
Williams can be seen in videos both inside and outside the looted QuikTrip, authorities said.

MSNBC profiled Joshua Williams as an advocate of peaceful protests. Of course they did. They also employ race hustler Al Sharpton and call him a journalist and doctored the George Zimmerman 911 calls to make him sound like a racist. Once again, those that the liberals make out to be heroes, turn out to be frauds.
Williams has been quoted as an advocate for peaceful protests.
An MSNBC profile of Williams in September quoted him as saying, “We have to come together as one and show them we can be peaceful, that we can do this. If not, they’re going to just want us to act up so (police) can pull out their toys on us again.”
Later, he continued: “I learned that we have to stand up and that you can’t get nowhere with violence but you can always move people without it.”
When someone from the crowd threw a rock or a bottle, the officers fired rubber bullets and tear gas into the crowd of overwhelmingly peaceful protesters.
During one emotionally raw moment, Williams, also 18, screamed at officers until his eyes were red and wet. Beads of sweat bubbled from his brow and his body grew tense. His voice strained under the shrill of pain swelling from his throat.
As he stepped closer and closer to the police line, a young pastor, Willis Johnson, wrapped Williams in a hug and pleaded with him to calm down. Williams broke down in the older man’s arms and a single tear tumbled down each of their cheeks.
“I don’t know if most people will get over this or want to get over this,” Williams said, sitting across from the police station earlier this week. “I think we can be better if we can all come together. We might have to come together and show that we can work together and overthrow the system. But we have to come together as one and show them we can be peaceful, that we can do this. If not they’re going to just want us to act up so they can pull out their toys on us again.”

According to her mother, Lisa Chambers, the incident happened after the Jessica briefly left home to go clean her car and grab some dinner. As per authorities, Jessica Chambers was intentionally set on fire and burned alive. What is wrong with people? . Ben Chambers, Jessica’s father, sharing some of the horrific details stating, “When the fire department got there, she was walking down the road on fire. Only part of her body that wasn’t burned was the bottom of her feet.” Also, “They squirted lighter fluid down her throat and in her nose, and apparently they knocked her out. She had a big gash on top of her head.” Jessica was flown to a hospital in Memphis but later died.
The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation and the Panola County Sheriff’s Office are seeking phone records and witnesses to find out who fatally lit a teenage girl on fire.
A passerby called the sheriff’s office about the burning car along Herron Road, near Highway 51, Saturday night.
Responders took 19-year-old Jessica Chambers to the Regional Medical Center in Memphis, where she died.
Jessica’s father said his daughter tried to tell responders who killed her.
According to WLBT, Chambers tried to say something in her last words to those on the scene that could lead detectives to her killer. Assistant District Attorney Jay Hale said it is possible Jessica’s murderer(s) could face life in prison without parole, or even the death penalty. However, Jessica Chamber’s mother stated, “God’s punishment is going to be far more worse than anything that we can do.” Very true, there is a special spot in hell reserved for those that would commit such a heinous act. To date, no one has been arrested.
Authorities say initial autopsy results reveal that Jessica died from severe burns that covered 98 percent of her body.
The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation and the Panola County Sheriff’s Office are seeking phone records and witnesses to find out who could be responsible, reports the station.

Streets of Fire … As Barack Obama Called For Calm Following the Grand Jury Decision, Chaos, Fires, Gunshots & Riots Broke Out in Ferguson, MO (VIDEO)
THEY DIDN’T LISTEN …
As President Barack Obama spoke to America following the grand jury decision in Ferguson, Missouri not to indict police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown, he called for calm. The problem, they didn’t listen. Last night the mid-west looked more like the Middle East as protesters burned, looted and completely destroyed numerous businesses and damaged property in their wake. The imagery during Barack Obama’s speech was breathtaking. His calls for calm, for peace, to not vandalize property was juxtaposed to riots, looting, fires and complete chaos.
“We are a nation built on the rule of law, so we need to accept that this decision was the grand jury’s to make,” he said, saying that while he understands some Americans will be “deeply disappointed—even angered,” police and communities need to move closer together, and “that won’t be done by throwing bottles. That won’t be done by smashing car windows. That won’t be done by using this as an excuse to vandalize property. It certainly won’t be done by hurting anybody.”
Look what happened when law enforcement took a kinder, gentler approach to the protesters.

57 Year Old Babysitter Martha Dreher Charged with Arson and Setting Fire to Family’s Home Because Two Pre-Teen Girls were “Disrespectful”
Would just quitting your job have been asking too much to do?
57 year old Martha Dreher has been charged with arson and setting fire to the family’s home that she babysits for. According to reports, Dreher was so annoyed with the two girls she babysat, that she decided to set their bedrooms on fire. The fire was set when the father and two girls were out of town. Imagine having hired this nut-job to take care of your children? Martha Dreher has denied setting the fire at the family’s home in Austin, Texas; however, she said that she wanted to quit and that the girls had been disrespectful to her. Home surveillance video captured Dreher driving up to the empty house earlier this month, then leaving 20 minutes later as flames were visible from the girls’ bedroom. Are you kidding, she was disrespected by two pre-teen girls so she sets the how on fire? GOOD GRIEF!!!
A Texas woman was allegedly so annoyed with two girls she babysat, police say she decided to set their bedrooms on fire.
Martha Dreher is charged with arson, accused of setting a fire in the two girls’ rooms while their father, Glenn Williams, was out of town with his daughters.
Dreher, 57, had worked for the family for a few months. She denied setting the fire at the family’s home in Austin, Texas, but told investigators she was tired of dealing with the girls and wanted to quit, according to Williams.
“She said that it was horrible, that the girls — my oldest — had been very disrespectful,” said Williams.
40 Year Old Tatanysha Hedman Arrested for Setting her 52 Year Old Husband Vincent Phillips on Fire After Catching Him Molesting Her 7 Year Old Daughter
Arrested, she should have been given a medal …
52 year old Vincent Phillips ran from his apartment and drove to a nearby Skyway convenience store screaming “I’m on fire!” Sounds like he is the victim, doesn’t it? However, appearances can be deceiving. Phillips was doused with gasoline and set on fire by his wife, 40 year old Tatanysha Hedman. However, some one does not do something this extreme unless there is a real reason to set a Momma Bear off. It would appear that Tatanysha Hedman caught her husband molesting her 7 year old daughter. Hedman said she did it because shooting him “was too nice.” Vincent Phillips is now facing sex crime charges. However, the police also arrested Tatanysha Hedman and she has been booked into King County Jail for investigation of assault and arson woman suspected of setting husband on fire.
After a mother in Renton, Washington, caught her husband allegedly molesting her 7-year-old daughter, she apparently planned a violent revenge plot.
Tatanysha Hedman, 40, reportedly told police that she decided to douse her husband, Vincent Phillips, 52, in gasoline while he slept and then light him on fire.
She told police that simply shooting him would have been “too nice” given the circumstances.
Phillips reportedly ran into a nearby gas station seeking help after he was able to put himself out. The man was badly burned and had to be hospitalized in intensive care.
Phillips is also now facing sex crime charges involving the 7-year-old girl, who is his stepdaughter. The extent of his alleged crimes were unknown as of Wednesday afternoon.
This child sex offender should probably count his lucky stars and pray that his wife did not go Lorena Bobbitt on him.

Two firefighters have been shot dead after having responded to a fire early Monday morning in Webster, NY, a suburb of Rochester.

A gunman shot and killed at least two firefighters responding to a house fire at a Rochester suburb early Monday.
Two other firefighters were in guarded condition at Strong Memorial Hospital with gunshot wounds, according to a hospital spokeswoman, The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reported.
The gunman was still at large at mid-morning. Fire Marshal Rob Boutillier said the blaze was allowed to spread to two other houses until the area is secured.
WHEC-TV reported that by mid-morning firefighters were attacking the blaze, which had spread to three homes and a vehicle.
Could some one have purposely started the fire in order to shoot and kill the fireman who showed to put the blaze out? Sadly, that could be the case.
UPDATE I: CNN …
Authorities believe one or more shooters took aim at the firefighters after they left their vehicles, Police Chief Gerald Pickering said.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo described it as a “horrific shooting” and a “senseless act of violence.”
“Volunteer firefighters and police officers were injured and two were taken from us as they once again answered the call of duty,” he said in a statement.
It was unclear whether there were any suspects.
UPDATE II: Gunman Identified as 62 year old and ex-con William Spengler. The ex-con who served 17 years in prison for the murder of his grandmother was found dead of an apparent suicide. As early suspected, Spengler set a trap for the firemen and then gunned them down when they appeared on the scene to put out the fire that was set.
A man who served nearly 17 years in jail for killing his grandmother set a house and car on fire this morning in upstate New York and then began shooting at emergency personnel who showed up, killing two firefighters, police said.
In all, William Spengler, 62, shot four firefighters, killing two and severely injuring two more after setting his “trap,” police said.
An off-duty police officer from Greece, N.Y., who responded to the scene early in the morning of Christmas Eve also was injured today.
“It was a trap,” said Webster, N.Y., Police Chief Gerald L. Pickering, “set by Mr. Spengler who laid in wait and shot first responders.”
