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.
27 Year Old Inmate Mark Daniels Facing Charges for Assaulting the Aurora Movie Theater Shooter James Holmes
HMM, SHOULDN’T WE GIVE THIS INMATE PRISON PERKS, AND A PACK OF CIGARETTES INSTEAD?
27 year old Mark “Slim” Daniels is supposed to be charged with assault for an alleged attack on James Holmes, the Aurora move theater shooter. The incident occurred earlier this month at the Colorado State Penitentiary. The fellow state maximum security penitentiary prisoner Mark “Slim” Daniels threw himself at Holmes and took a few swings at the convicted mass killer earlier this month. Charged, really? Let’s just call it prisoners meeting out their own brand of justice. James Holmes is serving multiple life terms for carrying out the Aurora movie theater massacre that killed 12 and wounded 70. Sorry if this is wrong, but I would have no issue if this inmate had shived Holmes and killed him. The jury in James Holmes murder trial should have sentenced this SOB to death, not life in prison.
James Holmes, condemned to spend the rest of his life in a Colorado prison, was allegedly assaulted there by a fellow inmate, a state corrections spokeswoman said Saturday.
The incident occurred earlier this month at the Colorado State Penitentiary, which Holmes’ calls home given his multiple life terms for carrying out the Aurora movie theater massacre that killed 12 and wounded 70.
“It was not an attack, it was a very minor incident in passing in a hallway,” Adrienne Jacobson, a spokeswoman for the Colorado Department of Corrections, told CNN.
While the 27-year-old Holmes wasn’t injured, the incident was serious enough to warrant charges against the other inmate.
Jacobson told the Denver Post that inmate, 27-year-old Mark Daniels, will be charged with assault on Holmes and assault on a correctional officer.
The Colorado newspaper said that it first learned of the encounter in a letter received Friday, purportedly from Daniels, saying the incident occurred October 8. But corrections officials hadn’t seen the letter and couldn’t confirm that Daniels wrote it.
Hmm, maybe there is honor among thieves as earlier reported in this story.

Tony Torrez has been charged with murder, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, assault with the intent to commit a violent felony, shooting at or from a motor vehicle, child abuse, child abuse resulting in death and tampering with evidence. On Tuesday in a road rage incident, Tony Torrez fired shots at the vehicle driven by Alan Garcia, the father of murdered Lilly Garcia. According to police reports, Garcia and Torrez exchanged words before Torrez pulled out a gun and fired at Garcia’s truck. Who the hell in their right mind does this? He had to have seen that there were children in the car.
Albuquerque police said late Wednesday that a suspect had confessed to a road rage shooting that killed a four-year-old girl on Interstate 40.
Authorities said Tony Torrez, 32, had been charged with murder, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, assault with the intent to commit a violent felony, shooting at or from a motor vehicle, child abuse, child abuse resulting in death and tampering with evidence. He was being held on $650,000 bail.

This is the precious child, 4 year old Lilly Garcia who was murdered
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.
THOU SHALL NOT KILL UNLESS YOU ARE ATTACKED BY A CRAZED MAN WITH A BRICK …
A Detroit pastor shot and killed a brick-weilding man with his Glock handgun during a Sunday church service. The incident allegedly happened about 15 minutes into the 1:30 p.m. service at the City of God ministries storefront church on Grand River near Lahser. According to the Detroit Free Press, the man with the brick never actually made it into the church, but went after the pastor in the vestibule. The pastor responded with gunfire, shooting the man multiple times, hitting the man in the chest. The man died a short while later at Botsford Hospital. The pastor was taken into police custody for questioning.
There is no separation of Church and Glock
Violence marred a church service Sunday when a man with a brick attacked the pastor, who whipped out his Glock handgun and fired several shots, killing the man, Detroit police said.
The incident allegedly happened about 15 minutes into the 1:30 p.m. service at the City of God ministries storefront church on Grand River near Lahser, Assistant Chief Steve Dolunt said.
“The pastor had had issues with the man before,” Dolunt said. “He had been threatening him to do bodily harm. He walked into the service and went after the pastor with a brick. The pastor pulled out his Glock and fired several shots. I think he hit him 4 or 5 times, and the man died.”
The pastor was taken into police custody for questioning, Dolunt said.
After the questioning wraps up, police will submit a warrant request to prosecutors, who will then decide whether the shooting was justified.
“We’re not sure at this point whether the man had mental problems or what,” Dolunt said. “It’s still under investigation.”
As we always say, don’t bring a brick to a gun fight.
75 Year Old Army Vet James Vernon Saves 16 Children From Knife Attack by 19 Year Old Dustin Brown at at Morton Public Library in Illinois
SCARED MONKEYS HERO OF THE WEEK … 75 YEAR OLD RETIRED VETERAN JAMES VERNON.
75 year old US military vet James Vernon saves that day as he fought off a crazed knife wielding lunatic, 19 year old Dustin Brown, and saved 16 children at a public library in Illinois. James Vernon was teaching a chess class with 16 children at Morton Public Library when authorities say 19-year-old Dustin Brown entered the room with two knives. That is when the 75 year old vet took action. Vernon suffered “two cut arteries and a tendon” while defending the kids and credited his knife-fighting skills he learned in the US Army for allowing him to delay Brown enough to get the kids to safety. According to a court affidavit, Dustin Brown told police afterward that he “failed in his mission to kill everyone.” Thanks to the efforts of hero James Vernon. Brown was ordered held on $800,000 bond pending a November 5 court appearance on charges of attempted murder, armed violence, aggravated battery to a person over age 60 and burglary for entering the library with intent to commit a crime. This POS is also due in court Monday, Oct 22 on child pornography charges filed against him in March.
Sixteen children and a handful of their mothers found the only door to their library room blocked by a man who held hunting knives in each hand as he screamed, “I’m going to kill some people!”
Dustin Brown, 19, specifically wanted to kill children Tuesday at Morton Public Library, he said after the would-be victims escaped safely.
Had he brought a firearm instead, “It would’ve been a different story,” James Vernon said Thursday.
Blood was shed, but mostly Vernon’s, because the retired chess club teacher kept his cool, gave his class an avenue of flight and remembered the knife-fight training the Army gave him five decades ago.
Vernon, 75, won his “90 seconds of combat” with Brown, “but I felt like I lost the war,” he chuckled. He cut two arteries and a tendon on Vernon’s left hand as Vernon blocked Brown’s knife swipe.
“I failed my mission to kill everyone,” Brown told police, according to a prosecutor’s court affidavit that accompanied formal charges Thursday that included attempted murder.
I BET UBER NEVER HAD THIS IN THEIR BUSINESS MODEL …
23 year old armed robbery suspect, Dashawn Terrell Cochran, appears to have used UBER as his getaway vehicle from the scene of the crime. After having held up a store in Parkville, Maryland, the suspect was seen getting into a the back of a silver Lexus. The Baltimore County Police Department say he pointed a gun at a store employee and demanded that he give him money. When the Baltimore police pulled the drive over, the driver said he was an Uber driver. Imagine that. Cochran was arrested and charged with armed robbery, first-degree assault, second-degree assault and theft less than $1,000. He is being held on $500,000 bail. The Uber driver and another passenger in the vehicle were released, having had nothing to do with the robbery.
I guess they really are everyone’s private driver … even armed robbers
A 23-year-old man suspected of armed robbery tried to take an Uber car to help him get away after he held up a store outside Baltimore, police said.
The suspect, Dashawn Terrell Cochran, was at a store in Parkville, Maryland, early Wednesday morning when he allegedly took a bottle of Tylenol cold medicine to the register, the Baltimore County Police Department said. Police said he then pointed a gun at an employee and demanded money.
Cochran ran from the store with an undisclosed amount of cash, but officers began to track his path, police said.
Cochran was seen getting into the back of a silver Lexus, and when officers pulled the car over, the driver said he was an Uber driver, police said.
Maybe it is the UBER passengers that need all the back ground checks and not just the UBER drivers.

Judge Jerri Collins Sentences Domestic Violence Victim to Jail for Contempt of Court in Seminole County, FL courtroom
JUDGE SENTENCES DOMESTIC VIOLENCE VITIM TO JAIL FOR CONTEMPT OF COURT …
Wow, nothing like re-victimizing the victim. I will be the first to say that I do not all of the details of this case; however, the judges actions just seem very, very wrong. Judge Jerri Collins not only sentenced a female victim to jail, the judge berated her as well. The judge said to the victim after she said at the time she was going through a difficult time and anxiety replied with the following, “You think you’re going to have anxiety now? You haven’t even seen anxiety.” REALLY, who really thinks that is appropriate? The contempt of court case took place back in July and the woman has already served her 3 days in jail. The judge acts like she has never dealt with a domestic violence victim and the mental and physical abuse they go through. The law may be the law, but there were other options the judge could have sentenced this victim of domestic violence.
There had to be a better way of handling this.
How ironic, now the judge who sentences a domestic violence female victim for not testifying in a case against a domestic violence suspect is not talking. Isn’t that rich. So the judge doesn’t feel the need to answer any questions, huh? Maybe it is because judges think they are above the law.
Channel 9’s Karla Ray has been trying to question a Seminole County judge for three days about a ruling that sent a domestic violence victim to jail, instead of ordering community service or a fine for skipping out on a subpoena.
Ray went to the judge’s office to try and get her side.
Judge Jerri Collins said she won’t talk about the matter in case her decision is called for an appeal. The victim has the option to appeal but since she’s already served her sentence for contempt of court, it won’t change what she’s gone through.
After she failed to show, she received no pity from the judge during the brief hearing.
“You need to tell the court why I should not hold you in contempt of court, I can sentence you to jail,” Judge Jerri Collins said.
Raw: Judge sends domestic violence victim to jail
“I just, things were…” the sobbing woman said.
“Why didn’t you show up to court?” Collins asked.
“I’m just, my anxiety, and I’m just…” the woman replied.
“You think you’re going to have anxiety now? You haven’t even seen anxiety,” Collins told the woman.
“I know,” the woman said.
“Those statements you told to the police on the day of this incident, is it true? The incident that happened on April 2, is it true?”
“Yes,” the woman said.
“Then why wouldn’t you come to testify?” Collins asked.
In April, the woman called for help after she said the father of her child choked her and grabbed a kitchen knife.
21 Year Old Leslie Allen Merritt Jr. Indicted on 15 Felony Counts, Including Aggravated Assault, Unlawful Discharge of a Firearm and Others
21 year old Leslie Allen Merritt Jr. was indicted Friday by a grand jury on 15 felony counts, including aggravated assault, unlawful discharge of a firearm, disorderly conduct, endangerment and carrying out a drive-by shooting. However, prosecutors did not file terrorism charges against Merritt in the highway shootings. Authorities had called these shootings an act of domestic terrorism. Mettitt was arrested on September 18 at a Wal-Mart. Merritt remains in jail on a $1 million bond.
A grand jury on Friday indicted a man suspected in four of the freeway shootings that have rattled the Phoenix area since late last month.
The indictment of 21-year-old Leslie Allen Merritt Jr. replaces a 16-count criminal complaint announced earlier in the week.
Merritt, of suburban Glendale, was indicted on 15 felony counts, including aggravated assault, unlawful discharge of a firearm, disorderly conduct, endangerment and carrying out a drive-by shooting.
Prosecutors did not file terrorism charges that authorities originally sought against the landscaper and father of two who was arrested Sept. 18 at a Wal-Mart. Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery previously said Arizona’s terrorism laws enacted after 9/11 focus mostly on protecting public utilities from attack and would not apply to the freeway shootings.
Using ballistics tests, Arizona Department of Public Safety detectives tied Merritt to four of the 11 shootings that occurred on Phoenix-area freeways between Aug. 27 and Sept. 10.
Florida Woman Nickole Dykema Arrested After Trying to Stab Police Deputy … Arrest Leads to House of Horrors Filled with 500 Bladed Weapons
EVER WONDER WHO MIGHT BE LIVING NEXT TO YOU?
A Florida woman, Nickole Dykema, was arrested Tuesday night after she tried to stab a police deputy with a machete. Police showed up at the Brooksville home to arrest Nickole Dykema on an outstanding felony arrest warrant. However, no one could have dreamed what they police were about to come upon. After Dykema tried to stab the officer, she ran back into her mobile home. Authorities entered the home after her and came across rooms filled with about 500 bladed weapons, altar covered in pentagrams and fake body parts. GOOD GRIEF!!! It looks like a scene out of a slasher, ‘Wrong Turn’ horror movie. According to reports, police deputies said they had removed more than 3,500 “bladed instruments” from the home.
A Florida woman was arrested Tuesday night after she tried to stab a deputy with a large sword or machete inside a mobile home filled with thousands of other bladed weapons, authorities said.
The Hernando County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release that deputies went to Nickole Dykema’s Brooksville home to assist probation and parole officers who were trying to issue felony arrest warrants at around 10 p.m.
Dykema was seen looking at law enforcement officers through a broken window in her home, but refused to come out and disappeared back into the residence, according to a news release. Once other deputies arrived, officers forced their way into the home and were met by Dykema who had a large sword or machete in her hand, according to the release. She tried to stab one of the deputies and missed his face by inches.
The newspaper reports Dykema fled into a room filled with about 500 bladed weapons. Authorities noticed there were other rooms filled with similar weapons and another room that contained an altar covered in pentagrams, according to The Tampa Tribune.
