LISTEN TO THE DANA PRETZER SHOW
- Author Ron Franscell discussing his new book, ‘Alice and Gerald, A Homicidal Love Story’
Would you kill for love? True-crime master Ron Franscell tells the grisly story of Alice and Gerald Uden, a loving couple who murdered at least four people, and live happily ever after–while cops try for decades to piece together a petrifying tale of murder and secrets. The appalling details are made even more vivid by the author’s familiarity with the Wyoming times and places that formed the backdrop of his national bestseller The Darkest Night.
- Author and Clinical Psychologist Dr Gary Brucato discussing his book, ‘The New Evil’
Revisiting Dr. Michael Stone’s groundbreaking 22-level Gradations of Evil Scale, a hierarchy of evil behavior first introduced in the book The Anatomy of Evil, Stone and Dr. Gary Brucato, a fellow violence and serious psychopathology expert, here provide even more detail, using dozens of cases to exemplify the categories along the continuum. The New Evil also presents compelling evidence that, since a cultural tipping-point in the 1960s, certain types of violent crime have emerged that in earlier decades never or very rarely occurred.
What We Know About YouTube Shooter Nasim Aghdam … YouTube is a “dictatorship” and alleged “suppression of truth.”
THE YOUTUBE SHOOTER WAS AN ANIMAL RIGHTS ACTIVIST WITH A REAL ISSUES AGAINST YOUTUBE …
Once again it looks like yet another case where authorities were warned and did nothing. 38 year old Nasim Aghdam had real issues with YouTube and their video policies, so much that you went on a shooting rampage at the YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, California. In the end, she committed suicide. Last year, she posted a photo on Facebook of a person holding a sign calling YouTube a “dictatorship” and alleging “suppression of truth.” Who was the YouTube shooter and how does a beef with YouTube monetizing policies turn into something this insane? According to accounts, the family had warned police about Nasim Aghdam. They had actually found her and let her go deeming she was not a threat to others or herself. Hmm, how about now?
The night before Nasim Aghdam opened fire in a courtyard at YouTube’s headquarters Tuesday afternoon, Mountain View police found the San Diego woman sleeping in her car.
She had been reported missing by her family in Southern California, and her father Ismail Aghdam told police she might be going to YouTube because she “hated” the company. Police called the family at 2 a.m. Tuesday to say she’d been found and that everything was “under control,” her father said.
A 39-year-old woman who alleged that YouTube “discriminated and filtered” her videos has been identified as the shooter who opened fire Tuesday at the company’s California headquarters, injuring three people before turning the gun on herself.Police identified the shooter as Nasim Najafi Aghdam of San Diego.
Multiple YouTube channels that belonged to Aghdam, where she frequently posted about animal rights and veganism, were terminated Tuesday night after she was named as the shooter. Google did not respond to a request for comment.
Aghdam’s father, Ismail, said she had been missing for several days and was located by police in Mountain View, California, early Tuesday morning. He told the Mercury News that he informed authorities his daughter might be going to YouTube because she “hated” the company.
A spokesperson for the Mountain View Police Department confirmed that officers made contact with Aghdam.
“Officers located an adult female by the same name asleep in a vehicle in a Mountain View parking lot early this morning,” spokesperson Katie Nelson told BuzzFeed News in an email. “The woman confirmed her identity to us and answered subsequent questions.”
Nelson said officers then notified Aghdam’s family that she had been located.
San Bruno police also said that “at this time there is no evidence that the shooter knew the victims of this shooting or that individuals were specifically targeted.”

HE SAID WHAT?
According to reports, 24-year-old bus driver, Johnthony Walker, allegedly asked the children aboard the school bus before crashing it in Chattanooga, Tennessee, ‘if they were ready to die”. What? Walker was arrested Tuesday and charged with five counts of vehicular homicide, reckless driving and reckless endangerment. Police are looking into speed as a possible factor for the accident; however, with the cameras on board and other devices, it is possible that we will know what was said on the bus prior to this horrific accident.
Parents of some of the children who survived a deadly school bus crash in Chattanooga are starting to shed some light on the moments leading up to the crash, which killed five kids and injured more than 20 others.
CBS News Correspondent Mark Strassmann spoke to a mother who had three children on the bus, one of whom died. The mother says that her other two children told her that just before the crash, the bus driver asked the children if they were ready to die.
“The mother says that in the moments before the crash, the bus driver said something to the effect of ‘Are you all ready to die?’ and then seconds later, the bus was on its side and five kids were killed,” said Strassmann.
The 24-year-old bus driver, Johnthony Walker, was arrested and charged with five counts of vehicular homicide, reckless driving and reckless endangerment.
CHICAGO HAD ITS DEADLIEST MONTH IN TWO DECADES AS BARACK OBAMA WAS GOLFING ON MARTHA’S VINEYARD …
As Barack Obama golfed on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard, the city of Chicago witnessed its deadliest month in 20 years. Chicago had 90 homicides last month, compared to 54 in 2015. Shootings up, homicides up, crime up in the city that Barack Obama calls his home. A city that has been under failed Democrat rule and policies for decades. The 90 killed in August brings the murder count in Chicago to 483 for the year so far, which is more than the combined total in Los Angeles and New York City, which have seen a total of 393 murders. And where is Black Lives Matters? I guess these killings don’t count because they do not fit their narrative that police are killing blacks. Sadly, Chicago garnered nation’s attention last week when Nykea Aldridge, the cousin of Chicago Bulls star Dwyane Wade and a mother of four, was killed while pushing a stroller in Woodlawn. But in typical fashion all the MSM could do was focus on a tweet by Donald Trump, rather than the “killing fields” that are going on in Chicago.
August 2016 saw the most homicides in a single month in Chicago in 20 years, according to newly released statistics from the Chicago Police Department.
The city saw 90 homicide victims last month compared with 54 killed in the city during the same period in 2015, city records show.
Last month saw a total of 384 shooting incidents and 472 shooting victims, police said. There were 217 nonfatal shootings in August 2015.
The 90 people killed in August 2016 is the highest number of homicides in a single month in Chicago since August 1996, according to police records.
Through Aug. 31, Chicago had recorded 467 homicides, according to CPD, putting the city on pace for 700 by year’s end. Chicago has not seen more than 600 homicides in a year since 2003 and not more than 700 homicides since 1998, records show.
Police said murder arrests have increased by 18 percent and gun arrests have increased by 5 percent compared to August 2015.
More than 200 people, mostly documented gang members, were arrested last month in enforcement missions targeting individuals “who contribute to the cycle of violence in some neighborhoods,” according to police.
I have always wondered why inner city gang violence was not handled in the same manner as terrorism. Some one needs to tell me what the difference is? Flush out the evil, the drugs and the crime, make it possible for children to get an education in a decent school (yes that means vouchers) and provide a path where a generation of children can break this sick cycle. How is it that no one has stepped up to the plate and dome this? Instead, the same party has been in power forever, with failed liberal policies and just allows the criminal element to fester in the inner cities. Before the United States decides to take in any more immigrants and refugees, maybe we might want to get our own house in order first.
