Carol Bowne Stabbed to Death by Ex-Boyfriend Michael Eitel in New Jersey While Waiting for Gun Permit (VIDEO)

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN GOVERNMENTS RESTRICT THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS … NEW JERSEY WOMAN STABBED TO DEATH BY EX WHILE WAITING FOR GUN PERMIT.

39 year old Carol Bowne, a New Jersey hairdresser, feared for her life and the threat of domestic violence from her ex-boyfriend, 45 year old Michael Eitel. Carol Bowne sought to protect herself by getting a restraining order, installed security cameras and an alarm system to her home and began the long process of obtaining a handgun. Carol Brown was stabbed multiple times by Eitel in the driveway of her home Wednesday night in the 100 block of Patton Avenue in Berlin Township. Bowne was transported to Virtua Hospital in Berlin where she was pronounced dead a short time later. Michael Eitel was charged with her murder. Eitel, a convicted felon, is a fugitive and being sought by a U.S. Marshals Service.

This didn’t have to happen. Thanks to New Jersey’s restrictive gun laws, Carol Browne is dead. As reported at the Washington Free Beacon, Unlike most states, New Jersey’s restrictive gun laws require a permit to purchase a handgun of which the permit process can take several months to complete. Carol Browne could not simply buy a gun for her protection, the very equalizer of a petite female hairdresser against a crazed ex-boyfriend, convicted felon. Obviously, a retraining order means nothing, security cameras and an alarm system did nothing to protect Brown and the police cannot be everywhere at all times to protect people. Do ypu know what would have given Carol Brown a fighting chance … A Sig Sauer P238 ESP, a Rugar SR22, or a Rugar SR40.

When Carol Bowne felt the threat of domestic violence, the petite hairdresser took steps to protect herself.

The Berlin Township woman got a restraining order against a former boyfriend, installed security cameras and an alarm system to her home and began the months-long process of obtaining a handgun, friends said.

But it wasn’t enough.

Bowne, 39, was stabbed to death in the driveway of her Patton Avenue home on Wednesday night.

Her former boyfriend, 45-year-old Michael Eitel, was charged with her murder. Eitel, a convicted felon, was a fugitive Thursday, being sought by a U.S. Marshals Service task force.

UPDATE I: Suspect in Murder of Carol Browne Found Dead.

Like a typical coward who would take the life of a defenseless woman, Michael Eitel committed suicide rather than facing the punishment for his heinous crime. Good riddance.

Officials say the suspect wanted for allegedly stabbing his ex-girlfriend to death in Berlin Township, New Jersey has been found dead.

45-year-old Michael Eitel was found dead around 1:30 p.m. Saturday in the garage of a home on the unit block of Holly Drive in West Berlin.

Co-Pilot Andreas Lubitzn in Germanwings Crash Hid Medical Condition From Employer … Authorities Find Torn Up Doctors’ Notes Stating He Was Too Ill to Work, Including Day of the Plane Crash

Search of Andreas Lubitzn’s home finds doctor’s notes that he was too ill to work …

The NY Times is reporting that Andreas Lubitzn, the co-pilot who deliberately crashed Germanwings flight 9525 into the French Alps on Tuesday killing all aboard, had been given a mental health diagnosis but kept the condition hidden from his employer. Prosecutors said on Friday that among the items found at Mr. Lubitz’s home were several doctors’ notes stating that he was too ill to work, including on the day of the crash; one of the notes had been torn up.

Isn’t this special. We have an individual who received a doctor’s note that says he is too ill to work; however, the employer does not get the same.

Investigators probe Germanwings co-pilot Andreas Lubitz’s background

Andreas Lubitz, the pilot who flew a Germanwings jetliner into the French Alps on Tuesday, had been given a mental health diagnosis but kept the condition hidden from his employer, the authorities said Friday.

A psychiatric diagnosis might explain why Mr. Lubitz, a 27-year-old German, did not disclose his full medical record to Germanwings and its parent company, Lufthansa. Certain diagnoses are grounds for a pilot’s license to be revoked.

Prosecutors said on Friday that among the items found at Mr. Lubitz’s home were several doctors’ notes stating that he was too ill to work, including on the day of the crash; one of the notes had been torn up. These documents “support the preliminary assessment that the deceased hid his illness from his employer and colleagues,” the prosecutors said in a statement.

ISIS Killing Muslims: Bombings: 137 People Killed & 345 Injured in Quadruple Suicide Bombings At a Pair of Mosques in Sanaa, Yemen

BUT ISIS IS JUST THE JV ACCORDING TO BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA …

The BBC is reporting that hundreds are dead and even more injured after multiple suicide bombs ripped through two mosques during Friday prayer in the capital city of Sanaa, Yemen. ISIS is taking credit for the bombings saying in a statement that the terror attacks were carried out by IS in Yemen.  ISIS called these attacks, “a tip of an iceberg.” Yemen is in complete and total chaos. Wasn’t it Obama that was just touting Yemen as one of his shining successes? Typical.

Suicide bombers have attacked two mosques in Yemen’s capital, Sanaa, killing at least 126 people and wounding many others, reports say.

Worshippers were attending noon prayers at the Badr and al-Hashoosh mosques when at least four attackers struck.

The mosques are used mainly by supporters of the Zaidi Shia-led Houthi rebel movement, which controls Sanaa.

Islamic State (IS), which set up a branch in Yemen in November, said it was behind the attacks.

A statement from the group was published on Twitter accounts known as reliable sources for IS propaganda. If confirmed, the attacks would be the first carried out by IS in Yemen.

VIDEO – CNN

CNN:

The Sunni terror group ISIS purportedly claimed it committed Friday’s bombings that killed scores of people at two mosques frequented by Shiite rebels in Yemen’s capital — an attack that would mark ISIS’s first large-scale attack in the Arabian Peninsula country.

At least 137 people were killed and 357 wounded when suicide bombers, pretending to be disabled and hiding explosives under casts, attacked the mosques in Sanaa, according to Yemen’s state-run Saba news agency.

It would also illustrate a seemingly expanding focus for ISIS, which controls parts of Syria and Iraq and earlier this week claimed responsibility for Wednesday’s killings of tourists at a museum in Tunisia.

Regardless, Friday’s attacks marked one of the worst days of recent violence during a complicated struggle for control of Yemen, where Houthi rebels — Shiites in a predominantly Sunni country — already faced resistance from AQAP and from supporters of ousted President Abdu Rabu Mansour Hadi.

UPDATE I: Yemen mosque bombings: ‘Blood was running like a river.’

Many of the worshippers in the mosques were supporters of the Shia Houthi fighters who control the capital, and responsibility for the carnage was claimed by Isis which regards all Shia as heretics – though it was impossible to immediately verify this and some analysts were sceptical. The final death toll was uncertain last night, with sources giving varying accounts, at least one putting it at 137 with a further 350 people injured. But the authorities warned that with so many of the wounded suffering critical injuries the toll is sure to rise.

After the blasts the wounded were loaded on the back of pick-up trucks and were taken to hospitals where, as they waited for treatment, they lay side by side with the dead. Among the dead was, according to Al Jazeera and Houthi-owned television, the imam of the Badr mosque, the prominent Houthi cleric al-Murtada bin Zayd al-Mahatwari.

According to Sheriff James Sigman, there are multiple crime scenes, including four in the Texas County community of Tyrone. The school district have asked officials in Tyrone to show up early. Oh no, this was not a school shooting; however, it is possible and most likely that a child has been killed in this mass shooting and thus the reason why counseling is being provided at the school this morning.

The gunman is reported dead  from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Eight people, plus a suspect, were found dead in multiple locations after a report of gunfire in south-central Missouri, the Missouri State Highway Patrol said Friday morning.

The suspect, a 36-year-old man, was found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot in a vehicle in an adjacent county, the highway patrol said.

UPDATE I: Eight dead, including shooter in Texas County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports it began at about 10:15 p.m. Thursday when the Texas County Sheriff’s Department requested assistance with a disturbance involving a weapon at a home in Tyrone, Missouri. A juvenile female caller told authorities she was in the home and apparently heard gun shots. She made the call from a neighbor’s house

Texas County deputies reported finding found two deceased persons at this residence. Further investigation revealed five additional people dead and one person wounded in three additional homes.

The apparent suspect, a 36-year-old man from Tyrone, was found dead in a vehicle in Shannon County from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Authorities say they found a ninth person dead in the search, but say that person apparently died of natural causes.

UPDATE II: Suspect, a 36-year-old male from Tyrone, was found dead in a vehicle from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The Missouri Highway Patrol said the Texas County Sheriff’s Department asked for help at 10:15 p.m. on a disturbance involving a weapon at a residence in Tyrone, Missouri.

“A juvenile female caller indicated she was in the residence and apparently heard gun shots. She immediately fled to a neighbor’s house to notify authorities.”

“Responding deputies found two deceased persons at this residence. Further investigation revealed five additional victims who were deceased and one additional victim who was wounded in three additional residences.

“All three residences were in Tyrone.

“Another residence revealed the body of a deceased elderly female who appeared to have died from natural causes.

“The apparent suspect, a 36-year-old male from Tyrone, was found dead in a vehicle at a location in Shannon County from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

UPDATE III: 8 dead in door-to-door shootings in rural Missouri.

A gunman went door to door in a small south-central Missouri community late Thursday, fatally shooting 7 people before driving to an adjoining county and apparently killing himself, State Highway Patrol Sgt. Jeff Kinder said Friday.

Texas County deputies investigating the killings in the unincorporated community of Tyrone, Mo., also found the body of an elderly woman who is believed to have died of natural causes. “We’re not calling her a victim at this time,” Kinder told reporters in Houston, Mo.

Tyrone Missouri killings Police press conference

UPDATE IV: Coroner says suspect may have gone on Missouri killing spree after finding mother dead.

Kinder did not release the names of the dead or explain any possible connection between the victims and the 36-year-old man suspected in the killings.

The deputies found bodies in four separate residences in the Tyrone area after responding to a 911 call around 10:15 p.m. Thursday regarding a disturbance. The caller, described as a juvenile girl, reported hearing shots in her residence “and immediately fled to a neighbor’s house,” the statement said.

Deputies found two bodies at the first house then five more bodies – plus an injured person – at three more houses. The body of the deceased elderly woman was found at yet another residence as deputies canvassed the area, the highway patrol said.

The gunman’s body was found in a car in Shannon County to the east.

Texas County Coroner Tom Whittaker told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the deceased woman and the alleged gunman have the same surname. Investigators, he said, suspect that he may have gone on a shooting spree after discovering her body.

UPDATE V: Gunman Identified as 36 year old Joseph Jesse Aldridge.

Gunman Joseph Jesse Aldridge, 36, was later found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound inside a car in a neighboring county after the killings in the rural community of Tyrone, located in the southern part of the state, about 90 miles east of Springfield, authorities said.

Texas County coroner Tom Whittaker told NBC affiliate KSDK that the body of a woman identified by authorities as Aldridge’s mother, 74-year-old Alice Aldridge, had been dead for 24 hours before she was found by authorities Thursday night, and she is thought to have died of natural causes.

Whittaker said the suspect’s discovery of the body may have sparked the killing spree, but investigators said a motive has not yet been determined. Texas County Sheriff’s deputies first learned of the rampage — which spanned six crime scenes in a three-mile radius in Tyrone — just after 10 p.m. local time after a juvenile female called 911 and said there were gunshots in her home.

Four of the seven victims were identified as husband and wife Darrell Aldridge and Julie Aldridge and husband and wife Harold Aldridge and Janelle Aldridge, Missouri State Highway Patrol Sgt. Jeff Kinder said at a news conference Friday, adding that the some were cousins of the suspect.

UPDATE VI: Eight killed, including suspect, in apparent murder-suicide.

Eight people were killed, including the alleged gunman, in multiple shootings Thursday night near Tyrone in Texas County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol said the suspect, 36-year-old Joseph Jesse Aldridge, apparently killed seven individuals and injured another at multiple residences before fleeing to Shannon County and killing himself. Authorities believe a ninth person died of natural causes before the shooting spree and may have motivated the gunman.

The patrol identified four victims Friday afternoon at a press conference as two married couples: Garold Dee Aldridge, 52, and Julie Ann Aldridge, 47, and Harold Wayne Aldridge, 50, and Janell Arlisa Aldridge, 48.

Three victims’ names are not being released pending notification of next of kin.

Nova Scotia Police Arrest Three People in an Alleged Valentine’s Day Massacre Plot

CANADIAN POLICE FOIL VALENTINE’S DAY MASSACRE PLOT …

As reported at The Telegraph, Canadian police have foiled a plot by four suspects, three men from Halifax and one woman from the US, who were planning on Valentine’s Day to go to a  shopping mall and killing as many people as they could before killing themselves. Nova Scotia police arrest three people. One of the two suspects, a 23 year old American woman from Geneva, Illinois, was arrested at Halifax’s airport and confessed to the mass murder plot.

Police in Canada have foiled a plot by two suspects who were planning on going to a shopping mall and killing as many people as they could before killing themselves on Valentine’s Day.

The suspects were reportedly on a chat stream and were apparently obsessed with killing and death and had many photos of mass killings. Police and other officials said it was not related to Islamic terrorism.

One of the two suspects, a 23-year-old American woman from Geneva, Illinois, was arrested at Halifax’s airport and confessed to the plot. The official said she prewrote a number of pronouncements to be tweeted after her death.

Police said the suspects had access to firearms, but did not elaborate.

The official said the 19-year-old male shot himself to death after police surrounded his parent’s home. The official said after police were tipped off about the plot they surrounded his home. Police saw two people leave the house who they later determined were his parents. The official stopped the parents on a traffic check before calling the man. As the man told police that he did not have any guns and he was on his way out of the house he shot himself, the official said.

24 Year Old Police Officer Tyler Stewart Shot & Killed in Flagstaff, AZ While Investigation a Domestic Violence Call … Murdered by Robert W. Smith

FOLKS, THIS IS THE REASON WHY POLICE OFFICERS AT EVEN WHAT YOU CONSIDER ROUTINE STOPS, ACT LIKE IT IS A LIFE OR DEATH SITUATION …

24 year old Flagstaff police officer Tyler Stewart was shot and killed on Saturday as he responded to a domestic violence call in Flagstaff, Arizona.

Officer Stewart, Rest in Peace. Our hearts and prayers go out to the family, friends and Flagstaff police department.

Flagstaff police officer Tyler Jacob Stewart, 24, was shot and killed during a confrontation
with a domestic violence suspect Saturday, Dec. 27, 2014, in Flagstaff, Arizona

Officer Tyler Stewart encountered a suspect at a home in the 800 block of West Clay Avenue during an investigation of an earlier domestic-violence call, spokeswoman Sgt. Margaret Bentzen said. Robert W. Smith of Prescott, fired several shots at Stewart, who was outside his patrol car, police said. Smith then shot himself dead, according to police.

Additional officers were dispatched after Stewart’s emergency button went off and dispatchers could no longer get a verbal reply from him, Bentzen said. He was rushed to Flagstaff Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

“This is an enormous tragedy for our department and the family of our officer,” Flagstaff Police Chief Kevin Treadway said in a statement. “We are a very close-knit organization, and know that all members of the Flagstaff Police Department are grieving at this time. With that being said, all of the men and women of the Flagstaff Police Department extend our prayers and condolences to the family of our Officer Tyler Stewart.”

Flagstaff officer risked his life for us … routinely.

I could not have said it any better than AZ Central columnist EJ Montini, when it comes to what police officers routinely do in putting themselves into harms way no matter how deadly or not the common person thinks it is.

“Every ‘routine’ call is routine until it’s not,” a police officer told me once. “Which is why you have to assume that every call is not routine. And even then… it might not save you.”

This was decades ago. I was standing in the back parking lot of a convenience store where a Phoenix police officer has been killed after a “routine” confrontation with a shoplifter.

This is what they do for us.

They risk everything each time they pull over a driver for speeding or a broken taillight, not knowing what to expect when they approach the driver’s window. Each time they answer a “routine” call for a shoplifter, an aggressive panhandler, a disorderly drunk, a possible domestic dispute.

Every “routine” call represents their willingness to put their lives on the line.

That’s what they do for us.

Two New York City Cops Shot ‘Execution Style’ in Revenge Attack for Eric Garner (VIDEO) (Deceased Police Officers: Wenjian Lu and Rafael Ramos) (Update: Gunman ID’d as Ismaaiyl Brinsley)

THERE IS BLOOD ON MANY INDIVIDUALS HANDS …

Two NYC police officers were assassinated Saturday afternoon as they sat in their police car in Brooklyn, NY. Without any warning, a gunman shot dead officers Wenjian Lu and Rafael Ramos as they sat in their vehicle. They were targeted and killed because they wore a police uniform. What the hell has happened to this country? Then again, it is not like race baiters and ignorantly liberal politicians have not incited these actions. The two officers were working overtime as part of an anti-terrorism drill in Bedford-Stuyvesant just before 3 p.m. when they were shot  dead at point-blank range. The gunman then fled into the subway, pursued by police where he  fatally shot himself like the coward he was.

NYPD officers Wenjian Lu and Rafael Ramos, God bless their souls, rest in peace.

Two uniformed NYPD officers were shot dead Saturday afternoon as they sat in their marked police car on a Brooklyn street corner — in what investigators believe was a crazed gunman’s ­assassination-style mission to avenge Eric Garner and Michael Brown.

“No warning, no provocation — they were quite simply assassinated, targeted for their uniform,” Police Commissioner William Bratton said.

Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos were working overtime as part of an anti-terrorism drill in Bedford-Stuyvesant just before 3 p.m. when they were shot point-blank in the head by lone gunman Ismaaiyl Brinsley, 28, who had addresses in Georgia, Maryland and Brooklyn.

Moments after killing the two officers, Brinsley, too, was dead, having turned his gun on himself on a nearby subway platform as cops closed in.

UPDATE I: 2 NYPD police officers ‘assassinated’; shooter dead.

That’s where they were slain, ambush-style — Saturday afternoon as they sat in their patrol car, New York Police Commissioner William Bratton said at an evening news conference.

The gunman approached the passenger side of the patrol car and took a shooting stance, witnesses told police. He opened fire several times, striking both officers in the head, Bratton said.

They were “shot and killed with no warning, no provocation,” Bratton told reporters. “They were quite simply, assassinated.”

Cop Killer – Ismaaiyl Brinsley

Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos were working overtime as part of an anti-terrorism drill in Bedford-Stuyvesant just before 3 p.m. when they were shot point-blank in the head by lone gunman Ismaaiyl Brinsley, 28, who had addresses in Georgia, Maryland and Brooklyn.

Moments after killing the two officers, Brinsley, too, was dead, having turned his gun on himself on a nearby subway platform as cops closed in.

Brinsley was already a fugitive, suspected of putting a bullet in his ex-girlfriend’s abdomen at her residence in Baltimore at 5:45 a.m. Saturday, Bratton said.

The murder of these two police officers were targeted because of the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner.

By early Saturday afternoon — just three hours before shooting Liu and Ramos — vile anti-police threats were posted to Brinsley’s Instagram page. The threats referenced the ­recent police-involved killings of Garner and Brown.

“I’m Putting Wings on Pigs Today,” a person believed to be the gunman wrote. “They Take 1 Of Ours .?.?. Let’s Take 2 of Theirs,” the post continued, ending with, “This May Be My Final Post.”

The Instagram page included an image of a silver automatic handgun with a wooden handle.

Three More Victims Identified After Elliot Rodger Deadly Killing Spree in Isla Vista, California … UCSB Students Cheng Yuan Hong, 20, George Chen, 19, and Weihan Wang, 20

Three more victims of the Elliot Rodger of the deadly killing spree have been identified. The three victims who were stabbed multiple times to death in unit No. 7 of a two-story, charcoal gray building on Seville Road have been identified as 20 year old Cheng Yuan Hong, 19 year old George Chen amd 20 year old Weihan Wang. The police state that Hong and Chen were listed as tenants at the apartment along with the 22 year old mass murderer Elliot Rodger. All three victims were students at the University of California Santa Barbara. Thirteen others were injured, some by gunfire and others by being hit by his vehicle. One was in serious condition at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital.

The three victims who were stabbed in the apartment of the man who unleashed a rampage in the college town of Isla Vista, California, were identified by authorities Sunday, two days after the violent spree.

The victims were identified as Cheng Yuan Hong, 20, and George Chen, 19, both of San Jose, and Weihan Wang, 20, of Fremont.

Authorities said that Hong and Chen were listed as tenants at the apartment of 22-year-old Elliot Rodger, who was suspected of causing the rampage. It was unclear if Wang was a roommate, too. All three were students at the University of California Santa Barbara.

 

Early today the three other shooting victims that were killed were ID’d,  22 year old Katie Cooper, 19 year old Veronika Weiss and Christopher Ross Michaels-Martinez. All 6 victims in Isla Vista murdered were UCSB students. That fact that an individual with so many mental issues and for some time was not flagged some where along the line had legally purchased guns is troubling, and personally I am as pro-Second Amendment as it gets.

Hidden in Rodger’s bedroom were three guns purchased legally from licensed dealers in Goleta, Oxnard and Burbank, authorities said. They said Rodger used the guns and his black BMW to wreak havoc across a square mile of the quiet college town — running down cyclists and skateboarders, shooting through shop windows and exchanging fire with officers.

Elliot Rodger had wrote in his 141 page manifesto the details to his deranged plans that stated, “The first people I would have to kill are my two housemates, to secure the entire apartment for myself as my personal torture and killing chamber.” The psycho then went on to write that he would lure people into the apartment and kill them before an “ultimate showdown in the streets of Isla Vista.”
