Anissa Weier and Morgan Geyser, Wisconsin Girls Ruled Competent to Stand Trial in Slenderman Stabbing Case

SLENDERMAN STABBING CASE … DON’T DO THE CRIME, IF YOU CAN’T DO THE TIME.

Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Michael Bohren has ruled that two Wisconsin girls, Anissa Weier and Morgan Geyser, are competent to stand trial in the “Slenderman” stabbing case. The two girls, who were 12 years old at the time of the crime, were charged as adults with first-degree attempted homicide in the attack on their classmate the morning after a sleepover in May in Waukesha, WI. They stabbed their victim 19 times in an attempt to impress Slenderman, a tall, online bogeyman that they insisted was real. The victim survived the attack.

Slenderman

Two Wisconsin girls accused of luring a classmate into the woods and repeatedly stabbing her to please a fictional Internet character named Slenderman are competent to stand trial, a judge ruled on Thursday.

Anissa Weier and Morgan Geyser, both 12 at the time, were charged as adults with first-degree attempted homicide in the attack on their classmate the morning after a sleepover in May in Waukesha, a suburb west of Milwaukee.

The girls told investigators they attacked their classmate to impress Slenderman, a tall, online bogeyman that they insisted was real, according to a criminal complaint.

Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Michael Bohren ruled Weier competent to stand trial after hearing testimony from a psychiatrist called by the state.

Slenderman Stabbing

The attack:

Prosecutors have charged both girls with attempted first-degree intentional homicide in the attack in May in Waukesha, Wisconsen. They say the girls plotted for months to kill classmate Payton Leutner, luring her to a wooded park after a sleepover and stabbing her 19 times. After her attackers left, Leutner crawled through the woods to a sidewalk where a bicyclist found her and called 911. The girls could be sentenced to up to 60 years in prison if convicted of attempted homicide as adults. However, they could be held until age 25 if convicted as juveniles.

Federal Court in Pennsylvania Declared President Obama’s Executive Actions on Immigration Policy Unconstitutional

IMAGINE THAT, A FEDERAL COURT RULES THAT IT IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL FOR OBAMA TO BE AN EMPEROR …

U.S. District Court Judge Arthur Schwab has ruled that parts of Barack Obama’s executive actions on immigration policy unconstitutional. It’s a start, even though any one with any common sense or grasp of the Constitution knows Obama’s executive order was Unconstitutional. Although this decision was part of a criminal case, look for this case to make it’s way through the federal court system and ultimately to the Supreme Court.

Obama_imperialpresident

Earlier Tuesday, a federal court in Pennsylvania declared aspects of President Obama’s executive actions on immigration policy unconstitutional.

According to the opinion by Judge Arthur Schwab, the president’s policy goes “beyond prosecutorial discretion” in that it provides a relatively rigid framework for considering applications for deferred action, thus obviating any meaningful case-by-case determination as prosecutorial discretion requires, and provides substantive rights to applicable individuals.  As a consequence,  Schwab concluded, the action exceeds the scope of executive authority.

The full opinion can be read HERE.

Judge Arthur Schwab stated that Obama’s executive order violated separation of powers.

“President Obama’s unilateral legislative action violates the separation of powers provided for in the United States Constitution as well as the Take Care Clause, and therefore, is unconstitutional,” Schwab wrote in his 38-page opinion (posted here). “President Obama’s November 20, 2014 Executive Action goes beyond prosecutorial discretion because: (a) it provides for a systematic and rigid process by which a broad group of individuals will be treated differently than others based upon arbitrary classifications, rather than case-by-case examination; and (b) it allows undocumented immigrants, who fall within these broad categories, to obtain substantive rights.”

The Pittsburgh-based judge rejected a Justice Department legal opinion arguing that Obama’s actions fall within the traditional realm of the executive’s  discretion about which cases to pursue and which to overlook. Schwab, a George W. Bush appointee, also quoted in detail from a series of public statements Obama made in recent years about the limits on his executive authority to make sweeping changes in immigration enforcement.

As Q and A opines, if this case goes to the SCOTUS, will the “ObamaCare is a tax” court manage to actually rule as this judge has, that the executive has unconstitutionally exceeded his power? Who knows anymore at this point. After Justice Roberts bent over backwards for Obamacare, one can only wonder whether the SCOTUS will get this one right.

Newtown, CT Victims’ Families Sue Bushmaster, Manufacturer of AR-15, Gun Used by Adam Lanza in 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School Attack

The Sandy Hook Elementary School murders were unspeakable, however, this lawsuit is misguided and Unconstitutional …

The murders of 27 individuals, 20 of whom were children, at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut on December 14, 2012 was a crime so heinous that it was hard to fathom how anyone could be so insane and filled with hate. However, 20 year old gunman Adam Lanza committed this act of violence as he barged into a defenseless elementary school and  took part in the deadliest school shootings in U.S. history. Now the families of nine people killed in the Sandy Hook elementary school massacre are suing Bushmaster, a privately held company based in Windham, Maine that manufacture the AR-15. This was the gun that Lanza used in the mass murders.

The 40 page lawsuit, filed in Connecticut Superior Court in Bridgeport, names Bushmaster, the weapons distributor and the retailer, Riverview in East Windor, that sold the gun used in the shooting as defendants. The plaintiffs seeks unspecified monetary damages.

AR-15

The families of nine people killed in a 2012 massacre at a Newtown, Connecticut, elementary school sued the maker of the gun used in the attack on Monday, saying the weapon should not have been sold because it had no reasonable civilian purpose.

While the AR-15 assault weapon used in the attack on Sandy Hook Elementary School was legally sold in Connecticut, the lawsuit contends that the weapon should not have been available to 20-year-old gunman Adam Lanza. The AR-15 is manufactured by Bushmaster, a privately held company based in Windham, Maine.

Lanza shot dead 20 first-graders and six educators in the Dec. 14, 2012, attack, which stands as one of the deadliest school shootings in U.S. history. The massacre sparked a fresh debate on gun rights, which are protected by the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

“This is a weapon that is designed for military use, for killing as many people as efficiently as possible,” Michael Koskoff, a lawyer for the plaintiffs, said in a phone interview. “It’s negligent for any seller to sell a weapon like that to the general public.”

As tragic as the Sandy Hook Elementary school massacre was and as much we hope that the families affected by this tragedy can move forward from this devastating act of violence at the hands of Adam Lanza, I am sorry but this law suit is misguided. The gun was legally bought by Adam Lanza’s mother, who was also murdered by this sick kid. The guns were legally registered to Nancy Lanza. Adam Lanza was refused the purchase of a firearm as he did not pass back ground checks. If anyone was negligent, one might say it was the mother who shared her gun enthusiasm with her mentally deranged son and did not properly lock them away from this killer. Millions of Americans own AR-15′s and use them for person and civilian use. The notion that plaintiff attorneys say that this weapon is only for military use is incorrect. The AR-15 is not an assault weapon, however, the liberal MSM would like you to think so. What Adam Lanza did was an heinous an act possible … but suing a gun manufacturer that is protected by the Second Amendment and followed all the laws is wrong.

Sandy Hook Families File Wrongful-Death Suit Against Gun Manufacturer:

The lawsuit, hand-delivered to a Connecticut state marshal on Saturday, names as defendants Bushmaster Firearms International LLC, which is owned by Remington Outdoor Co.; Camfour, a company that distributes Bushmaster products; and Riverview Gun Sales, a East Windsor, Conn., gun shop that sold the rifle to Ms. Lanza.

It claims the gunmaker, the firearms distributor, and the store that sold firearm are liable for producing and selling a weapon unfit for civilian use, reports WSJ’s Joseph De Avila.

Remington declined to comment. Camfour and Riverview Gun Sales didn’t return requests for comment.

George Kollitides, the chief executive of Remington Outdoor, told the Washington Times in June 2013 that Mr. Lanza alone, and not the rifle, was to blame for the killings.

“It’s very easy to blame an inanimate object,” he said. “Any kind of instrument in the wrong hands can be put to evil use. This comes down to intent — criminal behavior, accountability and responsibility.”

54 Year Old Elbert Richardson Arrested in Massachusetts for Impregnating a 12 Year Old Girl … Charged with Aggravated Rape of a Child & Indecent Assault on a Child Under 14

SICK: 54 year old man charged with impregnating a 12 year old girl …

54 year old Elbert Richardson, of Brockton, Massachusetts has been arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated rape of a child and indecent assault on a child under 14. The victim, an apparent acquaintance of Richardson, is eight months pregnant. Richardson was arraigned in Brockton District Court where he plead not guilty. However, is being held without bail until a hearing on December 10th. A DNA test has been ordered to determine whether he is the father of the child.

Elbert Richardson

A 54-year-old Massachusetts man has been arrested and charged for impregnating a 12-year-old girl, according to WickedLocal.com.

Elbert Richardson, of Brockton, MA, pleaded not guilty to two counts of aggravated rape of a child and indecent assault on a child under 14. Richardson had been arraigned only a few days earlier on similar charges.

The victim, an apparent acquaintance of Richardson, went to the hospital in need of medical attention and it was there she discovered that she was eight months pregnant. Authorities say that she was unaware of her pregnancy prior to the hospital visit. The girl was reportedly raped in April, and after learning that she was 32 weeks pregnant she told police that Richardson was the father. It was revealed through witness testimony that Richardson also raped the teen this past August.

Following the NYC Grand Jury Decision on Eric Garner, Barack Obama Fans the Flames … “When Anybody in This Country Is Not Being Treated Equally Under the Law, that’s a Problem”

Following today’s grand jury decision in NYC not to indict NYPD officer President Obama weighed in on a grand jury’s decision Wednesday not to indict a New York City Police Department officer in the choke-hold death of an unarmed black man, calling the episode an “American problem, not just a black problem.” Hmm, an American problem, eh?

Earlier Wednesday, a grand jury opted not to bring charges against the officer for his role in the death of Eric Garner, which was captured on video. It represented the second racially-charged case in recent weeks that required the president’s attention, following the lack of an indictment against Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting of teenager Michael Brown.

“We’re seeing too many incidences where people do not have confidence that folks are being treated fairly,” Obama said. “This is an issue we’ve been dealing with for too long, and it’s time for us to make more progress than we’ve made.”

Obama declined to comment directly on the grand jury’s decision, saying only that Attorney General Eric Holder would address the matter more extensively.

VIDEO Hat Tip – The Gateway Pundit

The WAPO has an interesting take on the NYC grand jury no indictment of officer Daniel Pantaleo … ‘With Eric Garner, Obama’s body camera argument just took a big hit.’

President Obama announced this week that, in response to Ferguson and other cases of cops killing unarmed black men, the White House would call for $75 million to make 50,000 body cameras available to police departments across the country.

But on Wednesday, a grand jury declined to indict New York police officers in the choking death of Eric Garner — a case in which there was footage. And the timing couldn’t really be worse for the White House.

One activist who attended a White House meeting with Obama on Monday and talked with NBC News suggested that cameras weren’t exactly a cure-all:

Staten Island Grand Jury Declines to Indict NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo in Chokehold Death of Eric Garner

BREAKING … NYC grand jury clears NYPD cop in the chokehold death of Eric Garner …

A Staten Island grand jury voted a “no-bill” and dismissed all charges against NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo in the choke-hold death of Eric Garner. Coming off the racially charged Ferguson, Mo grand jury “no-bill” vote, this could get really ugly. Eric Garner, while being arrested on July 17, 2014 for selling “loose” untaxed cigarettes died after being placed in a chokehold by Daniel Pantaleo.  Hopefully the reaction to this with protests will be peaceful. One of the reasons why the protests might be more peaceful than what we saw in Ferguson, MO is because the MSM and race merchants were too busy focusing on Ferguson and not this one.

Eric-Garner_The Blaze

A Staten Island grand jury cleared an NYPD cop in the chokehold death of Eric Garner during his caught-on-video arrest for peddling loose cigarettes, the Staten Island district attorney confirmed Wednesday.

The panel voted a “no-bill” and dismissed all potential charges against Officer Daniel Pantaleo.

The blockbuster decision capped weeks of investigation by the special grand jury, which was empaneled in September specifically to review evidence in Garner’s racially charged death.

In a statement released by his union, Pantaleo said: “I became a police officer to help people and to protect those who can’t protect themselves.”

“It is never my intention to harm anyone and I feel very bad about the death of Mr. Garner,” he added.

“My family and I include him and his family in our prayers and I hope that they will accept my personal condolences for their loss.”

Honestly, I have to admit I did not know that selling individual cigarettes was a crime.

UPDATE I: From PJ Media, this answers my question about the criminalization of selling loose cigs.

An FDA rule issued on June 22, 2010 — well within the Obama era, under a president who has unleashed bureaucracy on the entire country — mandates that individual cigarettes cannot be sold without their original packaging. You must not sell an unhealthy product that everyone knows is unhealthy unless it’s still in the polluting box that it originally came in.

If you sell cigarettes, you must comply with the following bullet points. Note the bold.

Check photo ID of everyone appearing under age 27 who attempts to purchase cigarettes, cigarette tobacco, or smokeless tobacco.
Only sell cigarettes, cigarette tobacco, and smokeless tobacco to anyone age 18 or older. **
Only sell cigarettes, cigarette tobacco, and smokeless tobacco in a direct, face-to-face exchange. ***
Do NOT break open cigarette or smokeless tobacco packages to sell products in smaller amounts.
Do NOT sell cigarette packages containing fewer than 20 cigarettes.
Do NOT sell single cigarettes, also called “loosies”.
Do NOT give away free samples of cigarettes.
Do NOT give away free samples of smokeless tobacco except from a “qualified adult-only facility.”
Do NOT sell flavored cigarettes or flavored cigarette tobacco (other than menthol).

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Calls Eric Holder a “SOB” … Irresponsible Groups (NBPP & Al Sharpton) Descended on Ferguson, MO Like Vultures on a Roadside Carcass (VIDEO)

LISTEN TO THE AMAZING AND POWERFUL WORDS FROM MILWAUKEE COUNTY SHERIFF DAVID CLARKE …

“Some one said Eric Holder. I’m known for not sugar coating things. This pissed me off. I sat up and watched as events unfolded in Ferguson, Missouri. An unfortunate situation, obviously. Amy time a law enforcement officer uses force and takes a life it deserves a thorough, transparent vetting … But groups started to converge on Ferguson, Missouri like vultures on a roadside carcass. Groups like the New Black Panther Party. People like Al Sharpton. To come and exploit that situation and instead of coming in to help and try to restore calm, poured gas on that fire with some of their inflammatory and irresponsible rhetoric. And I sat up there and listened to Gov. Nixon and I sat up there and listened to Claire McCaskill the senator. And then I sat up there and listened to Eric Holder through law enforcement officers under the bus for political expedience. [...]

I expect that from Gov. Nixon. I expected that from Claire McCaskill.  Those are nothing but two-bit politicians. They do that sort of thing, that’s what politicians do. You know that. But I did not expect that from Eric Holder, who calls himself a law enforcement officer.”

Sheriff Clarke went on to say that Eric Holder owed an apology to every individual who puts on the uniform and “Holder sat up there and insinuated that these law enforcement officers in Ferguson go out with some nefarious and malicious intent in their hear to deny people their rights and to indiscriminately shoot and take peoples lives for nothing”. You can see just how pissed Sheriff Clarke is. But of course liberals and agenda driven blacks would say Clarke is not black enough.

Ex-Egypt Ruler Hosni Mubarak Cleared on All Charges

Egypt’s former longtime ruler Hosni Mubarak was acquitted on all charges against him in connection with the killing of hundreds of protesters in the 2011 uprising that ended his nearly three-decade rule. This effectively cleared Mubarak of charges linking him to the deaths of hundreds of protesters.  Nearly 900 protesters were killed during an 18 day uprising that ended when Mubarak stepped down and handed over power to the military. But that was then and this is now. It is stunning reversal of fortune for Mubarak who faced life imprisonment or worse after a revolution toppled him in 2011.

CNN:

Egypt’s former longtime ruler Hosni Mubarak was effectively cleared Saturday of charges linking him to the deaths of hundreds of protesters and probably will be released in months, a stunning reversal for a man who faced life imprisonment or worse after a revolution toppled him in 2011.

A Cairo judge capped a monthslong retrial by dismissing the death charges — reversing the former strongman’s convictions in 2012 — and finding Mubarak not guilty of corruption.

Mubarak, who ruled Egypt as president for 29 years, was stoic as his supporters cheered the decision in the courtroom. The 86-year-old, reclining on a hospital gurney behind a defendants’ cage, nodded while fellow defendants kissed him on the head.

Later, he told the country’s Sada ElBalad TV station in a brief phone interview that he “didn’t commit anything.”

Ben Shapiro of Breitbart News Nails It … Ferguson, MO Grand Jury Verdict of No Indictment for Officer Wilson Explodes Media’s Lying Racial Narrative

THE LYING LIBERAL MEDIA HAS THEIR FALSE RACIAL NARRATIVE EXPOSED …

For a great read of a post-analysis of what transpired in Ferguson, Missouri and the liberal media’s lying racial narrative being exposed for the garbage it was, check out Ben Shapiro’s, Senior Editor-At-Large of Breitbart News, article at Breitbart.com … ‘Ferguson Verdict Explodes Media’s Lying Racial Narrative.’  As many times before, the MSM tried to create a story that belied the facts. The media ran with an out of control white cop who killed an innocent and unarmed black young man, a “gentle giant.” They ran with the story, not because it was true, but because they wanted it to be true. It gets old that we are continually told the same race-baiting story. It is Ben Shapiro’s final analysis that nails the media for the lie that their racial narrative truly is. Believe it or not, “every black man shot by police is not a Selma marcher.”

brown_wilson

Truthfully, the angry and sullen reactions of those who wanted Wilson tried are understandable. They’re understandable because most Americans live in the evidence-free narrative created by malicious media liars, and the politicians they enable. They live in the evidence-free world of the political left, which maintains that America remains deeply racist, that every white cop is Bull Connor, and that every black man shot by police is a Selma marcher. So long as they live in that world, racial reconciliation will remain a dream, and racial polarization will remain a tool of the political and media elite to sell papers, raise cash, and drive votes.

Ferguson Verdict Explodes Media’s Lying Racial Narrative:

Just as the media did during the George Zimmerman trial and in the aftermath of Zimmerman’s shooting of Trayvon Martin, the media attempted to cram the square peg of the Wilson-Brown shooting into the round hole of white police racism. That meant portraying Brown as the latest sainted racial victim; this time, rather than the Trayvon Martin narrative of hoodies, Skittles, and iced tea, the media hit upon the notion that Brown was a “gentle giant.” The Brown family, Al Sharpton, MSNBC, CNN, The Washington Post, and other major media outlets ran with the story that Brown was a “gentle giant” who wouldn’t hurt a fly.

Then, it turned out that Brown had robbed a convenience store minutes before his altercation with Wilson.

Similarly, the media trotted out the story of Dorian Johnson, Brown’s friend, who said that Brown held his hands up in surrender after being shot in the back, and that Wilson executed Brown. The entire media ran with that one originally; the lie spawned an entire “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” movement. Of course, it later turned out that Johnson had helped Brown rob the store, and that all available autopsy evidence contradicted Johnson’s story.

But never mind: the media had somehow turned the true story of Michael Brown – the story of a 6’5”, 289-lb. 18-year-old strong-arm-robbing a convenience store, confronting a police officer and attempting to take his gun, running away, turning back to charge that officer, and being shot multiple times – into the story of Emmett Till. Never mind that there was not a single shred of evidence suggesting that Wilson targeted Brown based on race; never mind that Brown matched the description of the robbery suspect because he was the robbery suspect; never mind that Brown attacked an officer twice. No, this was a pre-ordained narrative for the media: white racist police officer strikes down young black unarmed man. The result of that overwrought and outright false media-generated controversy: extended riots in Ferguson.

Lies_media

The story beat the facts. So the media ran with the story.

So did President Obama. In 2013, Obama told America that Trayvon Martin could have been his son; in this case, Obama told the United Nations that riots in Ferguson represented America’s nasty racial legacy.

As the grand jury verdict neared release, the media built up the story. We were warned of riots if Wilson escaped indictment; Erin Burnett of CNN said that such a verdict would be the “nuclear option.” Nancy Grace of Court TV helpfully added that Michael Brown’s height did not “mean he was a violent teen.” And the Brown family attorney, Benjamin Crump, openly stated that the grand jury was corrupt, long before the verdict.

Predictably enough, the Michael Brown case fell apart the moment it hit the legal system. It turns out, as Robert McCulloch said, that evidence still trumps media hype in the legal system – at least sometimes.
