Honor Him / Now We Are Free

I don't usually include two versions of the same song, unless say one is Metal and the other Acoustic, but I will make an exception today. (Rules/Guidelines) Mostly because I really like this song, and I like Eight Beat Measure, and the prior version of this song was something of a pickup live performance in a gym. This is a more polished studio recording.

Eight Beat Measure is the all-male a cappella group from the Rochester Institute of Technology. I expect the woke-scolds to insist it be disbanded for being SEXIST anytime now.

This is "Honor Him / Now We Are Free" by Eight Beat Measure, from the 2016 album No Safety Nets.

It was originally part of the the movie Gladiator directed by Ridley Scott from 2000. It was composed by the German composer, Hans Zimmer, along with Lisa Gerrard.

As for having the same song twice... the last time was way back in 2017.

They Suffered a Failure of the Victim-Selection Process

They apparently thought that being armed meant things would go their way. They thought wrong. 2 suspects still on the loose in deadly Harrison home invasion

Three armed bad guys broke into a home in Harrison, Tennessee. Harrison is about 12 miles, or a 20 minute drive, northeast of Chattanooga. They met an armed homeowner.

Gunfire was exchanged between the homeowner and suspects.

HCSO says one of the suspects was shot during the exchange and died at the scene.

Two other suspects jumped through a window to escape and fled the scene, according to HCSO.

Translation: When confronted with force, they ran like rabbits.

Despite the search of the area by officers and a K-9 patrol, the two got away. Not surprising since they undoubtedly had a car nearby.

This was the second time in two days that the house had been broken into.

As for the neighbors, they are shocked to discover that they live in The Real World™ where crime can, and often does, happen.

Neighbors on this street told us Tuesday morning they have always considered this a safe neighborhood and “still can’t believe it happened not once, but twice in a row.”

I dont' know why people are convinced that they are protected by their zip code. They are not.

With luck, they will be able to track these two down somehow, but the important thing is that the homeowner was safe.

Self defense is a human right.

Who Thought that Airbnb Was a Good Idea?

You can't use your Airbnb to throw a party. It says so in the agreement. Really. Fatal shooting near UC happened at house rented as Airbnb

Just like you can't rob, or steal, or do drugs. Those are against the law. You also can't speed, or buy things online without paying sales tax, though they apparently closed the door on that last one.

The homeowner says she went to the house around 9:40 p.m. because she had a “bad feeling” and found what looked like a party with more than 20 people of all ages present.

She says she stayed outside for about an hour before going down the block to ask police to help shut down the party.

As for the Airbnb policy...

According to Airbnb policy, renters are not allowed to throw parties.

Which apparently doesn't mean anything.

One person died. One person who was shot walked to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. One person was taken by car to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.

The homeowner says many of the things in the home were broken but says she wishes she had stopped the party sooner.

So tell me again how Airbnb is such a good idea.

Stupid Gun Owners Make It Hard on the Rest of Us

You can't avoid process servers for ever. Eventually you will get served. This insanity is pointless. Process server shot at in Kansas City, police investigating

Because when you go insane the cops get involved.

Officers stood by and kept the peace for the process server to finish serving the eviction papers.

This started as an interaction between a landlord, a soon to be evicted renter, and some innocent bystanders. With a side order of cops thrown in for good measure.

"Life is hard. It's harder when you're stupid." (John Wayne may or may not have said that. Probably not)

A Different Kind of Police Chase

I do watch more than my fair share of police chase videos, but I don't remember seeing a police chase conducted from horseback before this.

This is the Police Activity video Albuquerque Police Officers Chase Shoplifting Suspect on Horseback

They Tried to Scam an 86-year-old and Failed

I guess they thought he would be an easy mark. Clark County shooting: Deputies say 86-year-old was being scammed before he killed woman at his house

Lt. Kristopher Shultz said preliminary investigation revealed the resident had been contacted by telephone by strangers. They told the 86-year-old a relative of his was incarcerated in the Clark County Jail and “a significant amount of money, in cash, was necessary to post bail for this relative,” Shultz said.

The caller provided pertinent information for the case and the posting of bail, “all of which was bogus information,” the lieutenant said.

Clark County, Ohio is just northeast of Dayton, Ohio. The coroner of Montgomery County (that includes Dayton) did the forensic examination for this case.

A woman associated with the scammers went to the home of the 86-year-old to get the cash. Things didn't go well for Loletha Hall.

She apparently was armed with a knife, because the 86-year-old had lacerations to the head and ear.

When Hall went to the man’s house, the resident produced a pistol and shot Hall multiple times.

I thought about titling this post, "Don't bring a knife to a gunfight," but that didn't seem like the most important aspect of this incident.

The incident prompted a message from the Clark County Sheriff’s Office to remind residents, especially older citizens, that no law enforcement agency or court will make contact with anyone to solicit cash for bail or other official functions.

With luck, phone records and associates of of Hall will lead to the other people involved in the scam.

Container Ships 1980 to Today

Because of a conversation earlier today with a friend (you know who you are) I thought I would look up how much bigger container ships have gotten over the years. Why is it is of interest? It is because the size of ships today is quite different from what engineers were envisioning in the '70s.

First a definition. TEU is a measure of containers, it stands for Twenty-foot Equivalent Units. 20 ft containers are fairly standard in international shipping, even if most of the ones you see in the US are 40 foot - exactly the size of a semi trailer.

The Francis Scott Key Bridge over the Patapasco River in Baltimore was built in the 1970s, so the types of vessels that the engineers had in mind were (probably) at most the Panamax ships from the 1980s. These ships are in the 3,000 to 3,400 TEU range. Even if the engineers accounted for some growth is size starting with Pananmax, I don't think they would have planed for a threefold increase in size.

The MV Dali is rated at 9,971 TEUs - roughly between the C and D categories of the diagram.

Container ships continue to grow. As of January 2024 the largest ships are of MSC's Irina-class with the capacity of 24,346 TEU, or roughly two and one half times the size of the MV Dali.

You can find info on the collision of the MV Dali with the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore anywhere. For my reaction to the insanity surrounding that incident see my post MV Dali Has Become the Conspiracy Theory Du Jour.

Blue Light

I've always been more interested in the music of Pink Floyd than I was in the solo albums that members of the band produced. I can name a couple of David Gilmour's songs, but I'm not sure I can name a single song that Roger Waters included on his solo albums. It just wasn't what I was looking for. Still a few songs have been creeping into various playlists.

This is "Blue Light" by David Gilmour from his 2nd solo album, About Face, which came out in 1984.

The Result of Releasing Criminals Is More Crime

The Other McCain has another story of a completely preventable crime. ‘A History of Domestic Violence’

One of the facts about crime that the media don’t tell you is that criminals seldom begin their criminal careers with murder. Which is to say, most murders are committed by people with prior criminal histories — repeat offenders, like Troy Wells — and therefore leniency toward such habitual criminals represents a menace to public safety.

Click thru for the details.

Civilization was nice while it lasted.

Friday Links - 29 March

Legal Insurrection is first with a story about Lawfare in New York. “what’s going on in New York State with the weaponization of prosecutors’ offices both criminally and civilly is really troubling”

And it’s not just speculation that at least in the New York Manhattan criminal case and the New York Civil case were politically motivated. And we know that because the prosecutors told us that when they were running for office, that their goal is to get Trump. Letitia James was particularly open and effusive about how she wanted to get not only Donald Trump, but his family.

Bureaucrats Never Have to Deal With Their Failures

From Dana Pico at The First Street Journal: Hold them accountable!.

What happens when judges, prosecutors, parole boards, whoever, screw up and turn violent criminals loose? Nothing happens to the bureaucrats. People often end up paying extreme prices. Some people die.

Well, at least one parole official has had at least the grace to resign for her actions, though it is my belief that she should be behind bars herself.

This guy has, as they say, a history of violence. Threats and violence. Violations of protection form abuse orders. And yet the parole board, let him go early.

LeeAnn Miller, a member of the parole board, ran the hearing and recommended this guy, Corsetti Brand, be paroled.

One day after he was released on parole, he attacked Laterria Smith, 33, stabbing her, and he killed her 11-year-old-son, Jayden Perkins.

I’m sorry, but just how f(ornicating) stupid do you have to be to have released a guy like that? If the accusations against Mr Brand are accurate, then it is clear that LeAnn Miller is personally responsible for young Jayden Perkins murder, and the wounding of Laterria Smith. No, she didn’t put the knife in Mr Brand’s hand, but she put him out on the street where he could get one, and from where he could get to their apartment.

Review Board Chairman Donald Shelton resigned later in the day.

Miller resigned 10 days after the crime. Shelton later that same day. Nothing else will happen to them. Keeping violent criminals in jail is unfair. And expensive. So they have to be released. It is the Social Justice thing to do. Or something.

Self-defense in Illinois

If a man with a gun, tells you to leave his property, you should at least consider leaving the property. Man shot and killed on Collinsville porch identified by Madison County investigators

“The resident told the subject to leave, but he continued to refuse. As the subject became angry, the resident feared for his own safety and the safety of his family,” [a release from the Madison County Sheriff's Department] said. “The resident retreated into his home and retrieved his firearm while making numerous requests for the subject to leave.”

Collinsville, Illinois is about a 15 mile drive from downtown St. Louis. It is roughly due east of the city.

When the guy opened the storm door, as the first step toward forcing his way inside, the resident of the home fired one shot.

Jonathan J. Gagen, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Since the victim is related to a part-time employee of the Collinsville Police Department, the Madison County Sheriff’s Department has taken over the investigation.

In a typical journalistic bit of insanity, it isn't clear to me, is "the victim" they guy who was apparently shot in a case of justified self-defense, or was the victim the person who was forced to defend himself. My guess is they are talking about the guy who got shot, because journalists can't really tell the difference because an aggressor and a defender.

In any event, police did not arrest the guy who defended himself.

Commuter Pushed In Front of NYC Subway Train

To quote the Other McCain, "Crazy People are Dangerous." From the NY Post: Commuter killed after being pushed in front of moving NYC subway train in unprovoked attack. Civilization was nice while it lasted.

A commuter was struck and killed by a Manhattan subway train Monday after being shoved onto the tracks by an emotionally disturbed person in an unprovoked attack, according to police and sources.

The victim was pushed onto the tracks as a northbound 4 train was entering the East 125th Street and Lexington Avenue station in East Harlem just before 7 p.m., police sources said.

The person responsible is said to be "emotionally disturbed." Okay, I can believe that. We can't do anything except leave them on the street to kill people? We have no hostpitals for them? Oh, I forgot. We got rid of those hospitals because a movie made us feel bad. Or something.

Of the 38 people charged with 41 separate assaults on transit system employees, 20 of them had documented psychological problems, according to a Post investigation.

And that is only the assaults on employees of MTA, not assaults in general in the transit system.

Isn't the National Guard patrolling the subways of New York? More proof that it is nothing but security theater. An effort by the powers that be to make people "feel safe," because actually making them safe would involve incarcerating criminals and crazy people.

Why does anyone want to live in NYC at this point?

Neighbors Still Convinced They Are Protected By Geography

Despite the incursion of reality into their little enclave, they are still sure that they are protected by where they live. Westboro residents recall frantic scene after woman shot by Ottawa police officer | Daily Guardian

You are not protected by your zip code, or whatever the Canadian equivalent would be.

A traffic stop in Ottawa, Ontario turned into a police shooting.

“There was a girl running and a police officer running with a gun after her and he was shouting, ‘Stop, drop the gun, drop the gun,'” [a bystander] said.

The cop ended up firing on the fleeing suspect - though the details of that are less interesting to me. There are several reactions from neighbors that are of interest.

Residents say while they are shaken by the events that took place Friday, they do not feel unsafe.

I suppose I shouldn't be surprised that in the 21st Century people are worried about 'feeling safe.' I am more interested in actually being safe.

And despite the dose of reality that invaded their "safe space," they are still convinced that they don't need to consider what else might happen.

One home was struck by a stray bullet that shattered the front door window.

“Thankfully, no one was upstairs – it appeared to have ricocheted off somewhere else.” said homeowner Kristen Simkus.

“Definitely a little scary, but the important thing is that this was just a freak event for our street.”

Because if they think about reality, about what did happen and what might happen in the future, they would have to prepare in some way. This happened in Canada, where only criminals have guns, because the law abiding have been disarmed. So I'm not sure what preparations are appropriate, but I am sure that something could be done.

You are not protected by geography. Crime is not something that happens to "other kinds of people" in "other kinds of places." While the statistics governing your risk may change by location, criminals do have cars, and they do occasionally drive to nice areas, to steal nice things, from nice people.

And sometimes when they do, bad things happen to those nice people. You might want to plan accordingly.

MV Dali Has Become the Conspiracy Theory Du Jour

As someone mentioned on Twitter/X, everyone is an expert on large vessel operations today. BREAKING: MV Dali Cited for Propulsion Issues Before Baltimore Incident

Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.
        — Hanlon's Razor

People who can't spell hydrodynamic pressure, and have never seen an equation that includes momentum, want to explain why there was no reason that 146,631 tonne, 300 meter boat can't stop on a dime.

Oh, and the failure of propulsion MUST be a Russian cyber attack. It couldn't possibly be a history of maintenance problems with that vessel. Nope. Must be Russian Hackers! This is literally Russia. Russia. Russia. 2.0.

According to records from the public ship safety database Equasis, MV Dali – the ship that collided with Baltimore’s Francis Scott Key Bridge this morning – was cited by port state officials in San Antonio, Chile, on June 27 for a deficiency related to “propulsion and auxiliary machinery.”

According to the report, the deficiency was described in detail as issues with “gauges, thermometers, etc.” but there was no detention resulting from this single detected deficiency.

No it couldn't be as easy as lack of maintenance. It couldn't be as easy as cost cutting biting people on the ass. It must be some conspiracy, or a cyber attack. It must be Russia, Russia, Russia 2.0!

And a lot of people don't seem to understand that the two harbor pilots on board the ship at the time of the loss of propulsion were employees of the Port of Baltimore, not the company that operates the ship.

There is more. Other collisions just in March of 2024. Another collision involving MV Dali. But because this incident is close to home, and because people know nothing about large ships, and because people love a good conspiracy theory, we have “Russia, Russia, Russia 2.0.”

“Abducted By The ’80s” Tour

Something about this strikes me as a bit off somehow. Wang Chung, Men Without Hats, The Motels, And Naked Eyes Announce The “Abducted By The ’80s” Tour. But then the '80s were a bit off somehow.

The 1980s were a unique, fun-filled era of music shaped in no small part by the emergence of MTV and the genre of New Wave. Fans will soon have a chance to step back in time to the electrifying era of the ’80s with a music tour that promises a nostalgic journey of iconic sounds and unforgettable melodies.

Actually what I remember most about the '80s (aside from the insane hair) was that we were all driven a little insane by the background of the Cold War, and impending Thermonuclear Anhilation.

The lineup shifts a bit by date, and the dates are in May and June. (Details are at the link, including a short video ad.)

Here's a sampling of music from the 1980s:

One Man Dead, One Injured in Mountain Lion Attack

And still the people in California will ask, "Why does anyone need a gun?" Mountain lion attack leaves man dead and injures his brother in Northern California - ABC7 Los Angeles

One man died and another was injured in a mountain lion attack in a remote area in Northern California on Saturday, according to authorities.

An 18-year-old man called authorities around 1:13 p.m. to report that he and his 21-year-old brother were attacked by a mountain lion while antler shed hunting in the Georgetown area, according to an El Dorado County Sheriff's Office news release.

El Dorado County, California starts about 20 miles east of Sacramento, and runs up into the mountains to the Nevada state line. It includes the Eldorado National Forest. The national forest encompasses 3,185 square kilometers or 786,994 acres, though I'm actually not sure if Georgetown, CA is part of the national forest or not, there is a wilderness recreation are near the town.

One brother is dead. The other brother suffered "traumatic injuries" to his face.

But never fear. This type of thing is rare. We know, because they actually tell us twice.

Mountain lion attacks on humans are rare, according to the state agency. This is the first fatal mountain lion attack in California in 30 years.

That statement comes after a similar blurb from the Sheriff's office. And then there is this.

Since 1890, there have been fewer than 50 reported mountain lion attacks on humans in California, and only six of those have been fatal, according to California wildlife officials. In most cases, the person was alone when the attack occurred, according to the department.

So perhaps you are more likely to be attacked in the California cities, than you are in the California Outback, but the chances are not zero. You should remain calm, however, and only an alt-right nutjob would think you need to be armed to protect yourself for attack, whether in the Outback or the cities. California is a Progressive state, etc. etc. etc.

You are only an apex predator if you are armed, and trained. You should plan accordingly.

Sheriffs in Florida Versus Criminals

A story with quotes from two of Florida's sheriffs, Sheriff Bob Johnson of Santa Rosa County, and Sheriff Grady Judd of Polk County.

With stories of squatters in NY going viral, a Florida sheriff has some advice. ‘Florida is different!’ Sheriff’s advice to homeowners if intruders break in goes viral

Santa Rosa County, Florida is in the western panhandle, just to the east of Pennsicola.

In a video making the rounds online over the weekend, Santa Rosa County Sheriff Bob Johnson is holding a press conference and talking about the arrest of a habitual criminal with a history of breaking into homes and advised, “If someone is breaking into your house, you’re more than welcome to shoot. We prefer you to do that, actually.”

There is more glorious prose from Sheriff Johnson, and the story even reminds us of a quote from Sheriff Grady Judd, from the time of the Floyd riots.

Speaking of Sheriff Judd, he offered this message during the height of the George Floyd riots in response to rumors about residential neighborhoods being targeted: “If you value your life, you probably shouldn’t do that in Polk County. Because the people of Polk County like guns, they have guns, I encourage them to own guns, and they’re going to be in their homes with guns loaded. And if you try to break into their homes tonight and try to steal, to set fires, I’m highly recommending they blow you back out of the house with their guns.”

Polk County, Florida is roughly halfway between Tampa and Orlando. I seriously considered moving to Polk County at one point because of Sheriff Judd's attitude toward law and order.

Trance is an interesting genre of music. It is not quite the club music of my youth, but it isn't far off either. Instrumental, with energy, but not jarring. I know it won't be everyone's cup of tea, but then I drink coffee...

Above and Beyond is one of the more successful creators of Trance. And it gets remixed quite a bit as well.

This song is "Sun In Your Eyes." It is the Spencer Brown Remix/Edit of a song originally by Above and Beyond. I'm not sure if it was ever part of an album, those being such 20th Century concepts. The original song was part of the 2011 album Group Therapy by Above and Beyond.

A Bridge Collapse from 1980 with Similarities to Today

Unless you are living under a rock, you probably know that the Francis Scott Key Bridge over the Patapasco River in Baltimore was struck by a cargo vessel and collapsed. It didn't take long for people who know nothing of ship operations, or civil engineering to trot out a series of conspiracy theories, which have little relation to reality. #BridgeCollapse.

The only thing really published at this point is that the vessel in question was the 948 foot container ship Dali, which was leaving the port of Baltimore when it lost power, and collided with one of the bridge pylons. This caused the entire span to collapse. From the photos it is clear that the vessel was loaded.

Fighting against the tide of conspiracy theories at this point is moot. As someone on Twitter/X noted, everyone is suddenly an expert in civil engineering and large vessel operations. Instead of wading into that swamp, I thought I would shamelessly steal a post from myself, about a similar bridge collapse from 44 years ago.

On Friday 9 May 1980, at 7:33 in the morning, the vessel MV Summit Venture, in fog and rain, struck one of the supports of the southbound lanes (the west span) of the Sunshine Skyway, causing about 1200 feet of the bridge to fall 150 feet into the water. 35 people died. Cars, trucks and a Greyhound bus fell into the water that day. Most died of blunt-force trauma. Some drowned. One man survived when his truck landed on the deck of the Summit Venture before falling into the water.

The principle difference between the collapse today, and the one from 44 years ago, is that the Sunshine Skyway was a double span, so that when the west span collapsed, the east span was still standing, and could carry half the traffic. There is also the fact that the MV Summit Venture, which struck the bridge in Florida, was not carrying cargo, but was "light," with only ballast, while the Dali appears to be fully loaded.

This video documents the official recording of the MAYDAY call between MV Summit Venture and the US Coast Guard base in St Petersburg. A few other ships are heard as well. Photos are of the aftermath.

This story is from 2020, in which the Tampa Bay Times marked the 40th anniversary of that collapse. The Skyway bridge collapsed 40 years ago. Here’s how we’re remembering the tragedy. That is a collection of links to things about the collapse. Interviews with people who worked search and rescue, information about the trial of the pilot, and a few other links.

Saturday marks 40 years since the 19,734-ton Summit Venture freighter slammed into the old Skyway bridge. Six cars, a truck and a Greyhound bus plummeted 150 feet into the choppy waters of Tampa Bay below. Thirty-five died.

In the case of The Sunshine Skyway, a two-lane bridge opened in 1954. A second structure, similar to the first opened in 1959 making the crossing 4 lanes, connecting the south end of Pinellas County with the north end of Manatee County.

The Key Bridge (as it is known in Baltimore) was built between 1972 and 1977, opening to traffic on March 23rd of that year.

In Florida a new bridge was built to replace both of the old spans. You can find some info on that new bridge at this link. The video shows what I consider to be a work of art.

How Should a Woman Respond to a Felon in Her Home?

I'd say she handled this pretty well. Albuquerque burglary suspect shot by homeowner

[Albuquerque Police Department (APD)] says on Thursday, they located a stolen vehicle being driven by Rivera in the Valley Area Command and deflated the tires of the vehicle with stop sticks. [Joseph Rivera, 32,] continued to drive on the rims after the tires were deflated. The vehicle then crashed

He broke into a home, and the woman there called 911.

Police say Rivera was demanding the homeowner give him her car keys. Rivera took the keys and the homeowner locked the front door behind Rivera after he left. She then went into her bedroom and armed herself. When Rivera returned into the home demanding more keys, the homeowner told him to leave but he refused.

She shot him once and provided first aid until cops arrived.

Rivera was taken to a local hospital. He will be taken into custody and charged after he is released.

He will be charged with burglary, attempting to commit a felony, and something related to the stolen vehicle.

The homeowner was not charged because self defense is a human right, and your legal right in New Mexico.

So, I'm still waiting for the gun-hating part of the Left to explain to me what she should have done. Made tea? Given him anything he wanted? What if he was a rapist? I imagine I will be waiting for a long time.

The Revolving Door on the Criminal Justice System

From The Other McCain we get the following observation on Social Justice. Just a Couple of Car Thieves

Y’know, one hears from the advocates of “social justice” that it’s wrong to be concerned about mere property crimes like theft, burglary and trespassing. Such crimes are non-violent, we are told. If the people who break into your home and steal your car also decide to kill you? Well, then it’s OK to call the police, but you can’t send people to prison for mere property crimes, say the advocates of “social justice,” because that would result in mass incarceration. So until they kill somebody, criminals must be turned loose, and then one day there’s a car accident in Pennsylvania and the cops have no idea they’re dealing with two murderers, because the victim’s body hasn’t been found yet.

Click thru for details and more.

As I've written on many occasions that they keep turning criminals loose until they actually kill someone.

A Step in the Right Direction - WVU to Offer Self-Defense Training

Not armed self defense, but self-defense training. WVU to offer self-defense training to students, faculty and staff

The West Virginia University Police Department is hoping to provide a little extra confidence for those lacking—or hoping to refine—their self-defense skills.

Not even any mention of pepper spray, let alone fast-moving lead. But at least they admit that you cannot rely on the state - or in this case campus police - to be everywhere all the time. You are responsible for your own safety.

Participants will learn about the skills needed to recognize a threat, escape an attack and get to a safe place to call for help. Specifically, the training will go over striking techniques, takedowns and escape holds and will provide information on developing situational awareness.

That runs counter to everything these students have been told their whole lives. Maybe it is a sign that reality is starting to impinge on the fallacy that "The world is a safe place" that these kids have been taught.

Now, West Virginia University is not in a Blue City. It is about a 70 mile drive south of Pittsburgh, PA, or about 200 mile drive west of Washington, D.C. Still, it is a university, and they are admitting that the government can't take care of you. It is important to recognize a win, no matter how small. And granted, this is a small victory.

NYPD Officer Jonathan Diller

End of Watch. NYPD cop, 31, shot dead by career criminal during Queens traffic stop ID’d as husband, dad of young child

A 31-year-old NYPD cop was shot and killed by a career criminal during a traffic stop in Queens on Monday evening in a “senseless act of violence,” officials and law enforcement sources said.

Officer Jonathan Diller, a married father of a 1-year-old boy, was shot in the stomach after police tried to remove the suspect, identified by sources as Guy Rivera, from the passenger seat of the car near 19-19 Mott Avenue in Far Rockaway, according to the NYPD and sources.

The original story I saw didn't mention his name. The post I had written is below. It contains all of the details of the incident.

In this case a New York City patrol officer is dead. NYPD cop shot in stomach, killed by career criminal during traffic stop in Queens: sources

An NYPD officer was shot and killed by a career criminal during a traffic stop in Queens on Monday evening, according to law enforcement sources. The 34-year-old suspect, who has 21 prior arrests, shot through the window of the vehicle while seated in a passenger seat, striking the uniformed officer in the stomach around 5:50 p.m. near 19-19 Mott Avenue in Far Rockaway, the sources said.

The officer was shot in the stomach, under his bulletproof vest. He died at Jamaica Hospital. The name of the officer has not been released.

As someone on X/Twitter stated, the Progressive Left has turned NYC (and the other cities) into free-fire zones for criminals, where the law abiding are disarmed, and no one is locked up because that would be mean or unfair.


Beast in Black is a Finnish-Greek-Hungarian Heavy Metal band that was founded in Helsinki. I have come to like quite a bit of their music, and the clear vocals of their Power Metal, lead singer. (They sing in English!)

The band consists of Yannis Papadopoulos, with his amazing vocals, Anton Kabanen on guitar (he also founded the band), Kasperi Heikkinen, also playing guitar, Mate Molnar on bass, and Atte Palokangas playing drums. I can never decide if I think these guys sound like 1980s rock, or not. Some of their songs do, and some don't.

This is "Hardcore" by Beast In Black from their 2021 album Dark Connection.

“He picked the wrong place to try and break into”

A prepared homeowner versus a would-be burglar. MPD: Homeowner shoots at would-be burglar

Nutbush is a rural community in Haywood County, Tennessee, about 50 miles northeast of Memphis.

A Nutbush man scared off a would-be burglar with a warning shot early Thursday morning.

While Steve Huntley, 70, was fast asleep, an intruder made his way to the back door of his Nutbush home in an effort to get inside.

“And he was ‘bump, bump, bump,’ that’s what got my dogs stirred up,” Huntley said.

You can click thru for the details including the rise in crime in the area in which Mr. Huntley lives. He is prepared because his son died in a shooting a few years back, and he is determined to protect the rest of his family.

“He picked the wrong place to try and break into,” he said. “Because my motto is ‘if you come in here, you are going to meet your maker.'”

Cops arrested the guy who was trying to break in, but they did not publish what charges he will face. I think we can still say that this is a case of "Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0."

A Patriotic Story With a Happy Ending

Maybe you've heard the story of the Indiana high school student told to remove the American Flag from his truck. Indiana student receives patriotic surprise after high school bans Old Glory display: 'Hold your ground'

St. Leon, Indiana is about 10 miles northwest of downtown Cincinnati, Ohio, or about 30 miles by car.

Cameron Blasek refused to remove his flag, because there was no mention of flags of any kind in the high school manual related to cars or parking. And immediately there were many flags displayed on trucks in the school parking lot. So the administration relented, but let it be known that the handbook would be updated for next year to forbid flags.

Of course by this time, the whole situation had become a viral event.

GCI Digital, a business based out of nearby Cincinnati, heard about Cameron Blasek's patriotic story and decided to spring into action. They gifted a brand-new custom American flag wrap to the high school senior, free of charge.

Here is the photo that Cameron took of his newly wrapped truck. I think it is beautiful.

Suck it administrators.

NYC Shocked to Discover Solar/Wind Can't Compete with Nuclear

Math is hard, but adding up the Megawatts generated isn't that hard. A nuclear plant’s closure was hailed as a green win. Then emissions went up

When New York’s deteriorating and unloved Indian Point nuclear plant finally shuttered in 2021, its demise was met with delight from environmentalists who had long demanded it be scrapped.

But there has been a sting in the tail – since the closure, New York’s greenhouse gas emissions have gone up.

I'm shocked that good intentions and rainbow dreams can't compete with reality. Okay, so I'm not shocked, but the "environmentalists" in New York were shocked.

“From a climate change point of view it’s been a real step backwards and made it harder for New York City to decarbonize its electricity supply than it could’ve been,” said Ben Furnas, a climate and energy policy expert at Cornell University. “This has been a cautionary tale that has left New York in a really challenging spot.”

I don't expect the Left to embrace nuclear, because as we all know, "Nuclear bad." It does have the advantage of actually generating power, however.

Whenever the subject of nuclear comes up, someone will mention "But Chernobyl!" And another person will say "Fukushima!!!!" Yes, Chernobyl was a disaster, but that reactor - built by the Soviets at the dawn of the nuclear age - has nothing whatsoever to do with nuclear power plants in the US. And no one - count them, ZERO people - died from exposure to radiation due to the catastrophe at the Fukushima Diiaichi power plant that resulted from the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami of 2011. No. One. Died. Something on the order of 1400 people died from government-induced panic, because "NUUUCLEEEAR!". Or something. (You can't evacuate hospital intensive care wards to high school gymnasiums and expect everyone to survive, but that is exactly what the Japanese government did.) And yes, a lot of people died in the tsunami.

Here's a link to a post on the Fear of Radiation and the damage it did. The underlying article for that post has been moved behind a paywall, but it sums up the problem of fear-driving-policy.

Hollywood versus History - Ridley Scott's Napoleon

Are we shocked that Hollywood rarely gets it right? I'm not shocked. Ridley Scott’s Napoleon: A Historian’s Review

I'm a bit behind on my leisure reading... real life sucks sometimes. I thought it was worth including a movie review of a historical movie by an actual historian.

Ben Shehadi is a historian and author of the new book “Napoleon: The Revolutionary Hero” (available NOW on Amazon). He currently runs the newsletter “Hot History” on Substack, where you can find many more articles about Napoleon.

As for Hollywood and Napoleon.

Is Ridley Scott’s new Napoleon movie historically accurate? Does it capture the essence of France’s greatest military hero? No, not even close.

Five "huge" problems are outlined. Here is one example.

2) Austrians in Italy

Where are Napoleon’s two huge campaigns in Italy?

Following the French Revolution, France invaded Italy in order to kick out the Austrians. The campaign had been stalling for several years. But as soon as Napoleon showed up, the French were able to quickly reverse their stalemate into a triumph. He won six battles in just a couple of weeks, earning the nickname “the Little Corporeal” at the Battle of Lodi. When the Austrians reversed Napoleon’s gains, he came back and crushed them again—a second time!—at the Battle of Marengo.

None of this can be found in the movie.

How can you create a movie about “the Little Corporeal,” and NOT explain how he got that nickname?

Some of this I would excuse given that Scott wasn't making a mini-series, and he had limited time to work with, but some it seems like you are missing the point of documenting Napoleon's life.

There is more, including a comment on the acting. Click thru.

The Trailer for The Acolyte - Disney Star Wars in a Nutshell

The trailer for The Acolyte has been out long enough for the people that I trust as movie critics to tear apart this insanity. I thought a couple of links were in order.

Trailers are supposed to tell you something about a movie. Something about the characters. Something about the story. They are supposed to tell you why you should spend your money to see this film. The trailer for the Disney Star Wars show The Acolyte tells us that there is going to be a lot of diversity, and that good and evil, and right and wrong, are 20th Century concepts that you should no longer be concerned with. It is all about what you feel, and what you have the power to do. And probably - though this is a guess on my part - that what ever you feel like doing, and you have the power to do, you should do.

First up is The Critical Drinker with his video The Acolyte - The Message Is Strong With This One.

Aside from some classic memes (see below) we get the following.

The trailer is less of a primer for The Acolyte, and more like a series of disconnected scenes carefully chosen to tell us ... nothing at all. I mean I definitely had fun playing a particularly challenging game of "Spot the White Guy!" with this trailer, because damn man, this one show's enough to fulfill Disney's entire DEI quota for the next two fiscal years. For example check out this collection of Jedi Padawans, and see if you can identify the one demographic that's mysteriously left out.

Next we get a selection from Nerdrotic, with Everyone HATES The Acolyte, and That's A Good Thing - RIP Star Wars

This one's gonna be COMPLETELY different. It's gonna be female centric with Diversity AND Inclusion.

In which we find that the show-runner, Leslye Headland, who's claim to fame is that she was formerly Harvey Weinstein's personal assistant, (no comments from the peanut gallery please), describes the concept behind The Acolyte as Frozen meets Kill Bill. And no, no one really knows what she means, except that the two main characters are sisters.

Which leads Gary B. to ask some questions...

I mean, why not Will & Grace meets RoboCop, or Modern Family meets Saw, or Sesame Street meets Scared Straight? I don't know, maybe I'm crazy to suggest that Disney might want to try Star Wars meets Star Wars, but we know they can't do that; I digress.

All of this brings to mind an episode of The Simpsons from 1999, "Homer to the Max." (Season 10, episode 13) It brings up a show idea of Titanic meets Fraser. (OK, so Critical Drinker gets the hat tip on that...) Star Wars has literally become a parody, and they just don't know it.

A few more videos of note...

The Memes are Strong with this one...

The Left Will Be Screaming That Felony Murder Is Not Fair Any Minute Now

You want to hold people accountable for the completely foreseeable consequences of their actions? The Left thinks that is crazy. Teen dies in apparent Amite County robbery; homeowner not charged | The Enterprise Journal

Amite County, Mississippi is on the Louisiana state line, about 35 miles from Baton Rouge. Liberty, Mississippi is about 50 miles in a straight line (roughly) north of Baton Rouge, or an hour by car.

Canaan Curtis, 17, of Gillsburg, was shot and killed outside a residence on Highway 569 just north of Liberty.

Curtis had two 16-year-old accomplices with him. They were not harmed, but they now face charges of second-degree murder.

If someone is committing a felony, and anyone dies as result of that crime, that person who was committing the crime is held responsible for the death, regardless of who pulled the trigger. In this case the crime was robbery, and the homeowner did the shooting. But the accomplices are charged with the death. This situation has different names in different jurisdictions. Most of us who aren't lawyers call if felony murder.

The names of the two accomplices were given in the article, so I take that to mean they are being charged as adults.

How To Destroy a Country

From the inside... From Illegal Alien Invaders to Newcomers to Democrats - American Thinker

The answer is that destroying the United States was always the Democrat party’s plan. Having 10 million (and growing) illegal alien invaders is the easiest way to destroy America. It doesn’t matter to Biden & Company if some illegal invaders are injuring, raping, and murdering Americans. It doesn’t matter to Biden & Company if some illegal invaders are committing home and retail burglaries, flooding America with fentanyl, and destroying cities with rampant crime. It doesn’t matter to Biden & Company ...

No one is this inept. This is deliberate.

The "Real Victim" versus the Actual Victim

One girl was beaten nearly to death. The other girl is the "real victim." Or something. From ModernityNews: Family of Black Girl Who Beat Schoolmate to Near Death Say She’s the Real Victim

The family claims, that in a school that is 96.7% black, and 1.4% white, the white girl was bullying the black girl. As if that would justify what happened.

As we previously highlighted, the school in question has a history of anti-white racism cases and violent confrontations and was awarded the North County Incorporated (NCI) Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Leadership Award in 2022.
