Moncton RCMP Shooting: Is the NFA’s wading into the fray the right thing to do?

NFA-Dancing-on-Monctons-Dead-CopsPFTR

NFA-Dancing-on-Monctons-Dead-CopsPFTR

As most already know, this past Wednesday evening saw 3 RCMP members shot dead, with more wounded.

The entire city of Moncton, put on lockdown until police finally captured their intended target late Thursday, finally resumed more normal operation. Government buildings and schools closed for the manhunt reopened. Residents,prevented from returning to their homes due to police barricades finally made it back to worried loved ones.

The alleged killer, identified as Justin Bourque, is according to the media a “gun nut” which all but guarantees a fresh wave of attacks on Canada’s law-abiding firearm owners.

With that context in place it is valid to question whether the NFA, which bills itself as Canada’s “largest and most effective advocacy organization representing the interests of firearms owners and users“, press release denouncing both the “clearly deranged individual” and Canada’s gun laws was prudent.

It is clear that Canada’s excessive firearms control system has failed again,” they wrote the day after the shootings and before Justin Bourque’s apprehension.

The largest and most effective pro-gun organization in history has one simple rule when mass shootings occur: Say Nothing.

The NRA’s policy of silence in the wake of these tragedies seems both wise and prudent.

The NFA chose the death of 3 RCMP members as a vehicle to complain about Canada’s gun laws.

In doing so they (unwittingly or intentionally?) danced on the graves of the dead for political points. We despise Windy Wendy and her ilk doing that. Now we’ve become her.

Is that really what we want?

Yours in Liberty,

My Signature Red

Benjamin Gabriel Sebena charged in capital murder of Wauwatosa Police Officer Jennifer Lynn Sebena

Officer-Down-Police-Officer-Jennifer-Lynn-Sebena

Officer-Down-Police-Officer-Jennifer-Lynn-Sebena

It appears the sympathy I expressed in the opening paragraph of my December 24th article for the husband of murdered Wauwatosa Police Officer Jennifer Lynn Sebena was misplaced.

A husband is grieving the senseless loss of his wife this very minute. Instead of preparing Christmas Eve dinner for his bride, Wauwatosa Police Officer Jennifer Lynn Sebena’s husband must now prepare for a funeral instead.

Instead of grieving the loss of his wife, he was responsible for it.

News reports now say that former Marine Benjamin Gabriel Sebena has admitted to murdering his wife in cold blood by shooting her five times in the head.

Ben Sebena has reportedly admitted to police that he was a jealous husband and that he stalked his wife for days in the lead-up to murdering her. What caused him to finally go through with his depraved plan is unknown, although he says he shot his wife repeatedly in the face because he “didn’t want her to suffer”.

Uh huh.

On Thursday, December 27, 2012 Ben Sebena was formally charged with first-degree intentional homicide for the murder of his wife, Jennifer.

ABC News reported

Investigators said they found a number of details tying Ben Sebena to the killing. Surveillance video showed a vehicle that matches his in the area near the time of the shooting, and detectives who searched the couple’s home found a gun in the attic that fires ammunition matching the bullet casings found at the scene. They also found Jennifer Sebena’s service weapon hidden in the attic.

None of that looks very good for the former Marine.

If jealousy is indeed the motive for killing his wife, that only makes her death even more senseless in light of his claims to have “rediscovered his faith in God” in a 2010 video created for Elmbrook Church.

Last I checked, the Bible didn’t advocate murdering your wife…

Such a stupid and senseless waste of two lives… I really don’t know what else to say.

Merry Christmas!

Merry-Christmas-2012

Merry-Christmas-2012

May you and your family have a blessed and happy Christmas!

Christmas-Bell-174x250That said, while I would love to be nothing but sweetness and light in the days leading up to Christmas, I must admit that’s a little difficult given the happenings of the past week or so.

That said, while I would love to be nothing but sweetness and light in the days leading up to Christmas, I must admit that’s a little difficult given the happenings of the past week or so.

First, of course, is the tragedy in Newtown, CT, where 20 little gifts from God were mercilessly gunned down by a madman, as were 6 adults.

The heinous murder of these children at an elementary school was both preceded and followed by the murder of a number of police officers across North America.

Every one of these families has, most likely, had their last happy Christmas for the rest of their lives. It’s hard to be happy on the anniversary of your child’s death, after all, or on the anniversary of the death of your husband, your wife, your father, brother or son.

So, as the rest of us enjoy Christmas with our families this year, I would like to remind each and every one of you about just how lucky you are as you read this. The families of the people named below are not so fortunate.

The families of every person named below lost a loved one just days ago and are still grieving that loss… still trying to come to terms with it.

While we celebrate Christmas, I think it would be fitting to take a little time out to remember these families and the tragedy they are living through right this minute.

The Children:

  • Charlotte Bacon,Christmas-Light-176x250
  • Daniel Barden,
  • Olivia Engel,
  • Josephine Gay,
  • Ana Marquez-Greene,
  • Dylan Hockley,
  • Madeline Hsu,
  • Catherine Hubbard,
  • Chase Kowalski,
  • Jesse Lewis,
  • James Mattioli,
  • Grace McDonnell,
  • Emilie Parker,
  • Jack Pinto,
  • Noah Pozner,
  • Caroline Previdi,
  • Jessica Rekos,
  • Avielle Richman,
  • Benjamin Wheeler and
  • Allison Wyatt.

The Adults:

  • Rachel Davino,
  • Dawn Hocksprung,
  • Anne Marie Murphy,
  • Lauren Russeau,
  • Mary Sherlach, and
  • Victoria Soto.

The Police:

I hope you will join me in praying for the families of all these slain children, adults and police officers today, Christmas Day 2012. They all need and deserve our full and complete support as they come to grips with the loss of their loved ones.

Yours in Liberty,

Christopher di Armani

Police Officer Jennifer Lynn Sebena is shot and killed in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin

Officer-Down-Police-Officer-Jennifer-Lynn-Sebena

Officer-Down-Police-Officer-Jennifer-Lynn-Sebena

A husband is grieving the senseless loss of his wife this very minute. Instead of preparing Christmas Eve dinner for his bride, Wauwatosa Police Officer Jennifer Lynn Sebena’s husband must now prepare for a funeral instead.

I can’t even begin to imagine the horror of that.

UPDATE: Benjamin Gabriel Sebena charged in capital murder of Wauwatosa Police Officer Jennifer Lynn Sebena

Officer Sebena was on patrol in the early morning hours of December 24, 2012, when she lost contact with her dispatcher. They tried reaching her on radio but when those repeated attempts failed, they sent other officers to search for her.

That search revealed the most horrifying result possible, their fellow officer shot multiple times, lying bleeding to death in the parking lot of the Wauwatosa Fire Department.

wauwatosa-police-departmentHer murderer is still at large, unfortunately, and at the moment there are no clues to the identity of her killer.

Officer Jennifer Lynn Sebena, just 30 years old and a 2-year veteran of the Wauwatosa Police Department, is survived by her husband. As I write this article, it was not known if she also left behind any children.

When Wauwatosa Police Lt. Gerald Witkowski spoke at a press conference about the death of Officer Sebena, one incredibly stupid reporter asked why police officers from Brookfield, West Allis, Elm Grove and the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Department were all on scene helping with the investigation.

Witkowski answered this idiot with the obvious…

“Because we’ve lost an officer.”

Please keep moronic people like this particular reporter far, far away from the poor, grieving family!

On the Officer Down Memorial Page for Officer Sebena, Chief Steven Marshall of the Washington, New Hampshire, Police Department had this to say:

A police officer should be remembered not by how she died, but how she lived! A great woman has gone to secure a safe path for the rest of us to follow. Thank you to you, your family and the Wauwatosa Police Department. Our country is a little less safe without you. Rest in Peace Sister.

Please join me in praying for Jennifer Sebena’s family, fellow police officers and community as they come to terms with her senseless and horrific murder, made all the more horrifying because it happened on Christmas Eve.

Wauwatosa, Wisconsin is a small city of just 44,000 people, so the first death of a police officer in the history of the Wauwatosa Police Department is all the more shocking.

Please also join me in praying that her murderer is brought to justice swiftly and pays for this heinous crime to the highest extent possible.

To send condolences, please write or call:

Chief of Police Barry Weber
Wauwatosa Police Department
1700 N 116 Street
Wauwatosa, WI 53226

Phone: (414) 471-8430

Former RCMP member and bylaw enforcement officer Rod Lazenby murdered in Priddis, Alberta

Rod Lazenby with his wife Lolita Lazenby

Rod Lazenby with his wife Lolita Lazenby

Former RCMP member and Foothills Municipal District community peace officer Rod Lazenby was [allegedly] murdered by Trevor Kloschinsky, 46, in the town of Priddis, Alberta, on Friday, August 10, 2012.   Priddis is a 15-minute drive southwest of Calgary.

It’s horrifying to learn that a man like Rod Lazenby can survive his entire 35 year RCMP career unscathed, only to be murdered over something as stupid as a bylaw ticket.

It just seems so senseless.

As far as we know this was around a dog complaint, and now this has occurred so it’s an emotional time for everyone in the police community,” said RCMP Insp. Garrett Woolsey of the RCMP’s Major Crimes Unit.

Actually, it’s an emotional time for the entire community, police included, Inspector Woolsey.   I’m just saying…

Sun News is reporting the following:

Sun sources said Lazenby was “ambushed by the suspect, handcuffed and severely beaten.”

“He was lying in wait,” sources also said.

The suspect then threw Lazenby in back of a bylaw SUV and drove him to the district office in Calgary.

When he arrived, the suspect entered the police station to make a report that someone was trying to steal his dogs.

He was told by CPS that it was an RCMP matter.

“Then, he took officers outside to show them who was trying to steal his dogs,” said a Sun source.

Murderer’s mother blames Shawn Bryan’s shooting victim, Charlene Mitchell, for son’s crimes

eldene-king

I know grief can do strange things to people.  I also know losing a son, no matter the circumstances, is horrendously difficult.  There is a line that one should never cross, however, simply because it is both tacky and moronic to blame the shooting victim for the crimes of the lunatic who shot her.

As bizarre is it seems to me, however, that’s precisely what Shawn Bryan’s mother is doing.

In what can only be described as a “stupid human trick”, Eldene King is blaming Charlene Mitchell for her son’s insane actions that left Mitchell fighting for her life in hospital and veteran police officer Kevin Ambrose dead.

Eldene King is grieving.  I get that.  But she’s out to lunch if she thinks she’s going to get any sympathy from me for the fact that her son is dead.  Not when she wants to blame the mother of her grandchild for the murderous actions of her own son.

Shawn Bryan was a corrections officer at New York’s Rikers’s Island facility.  Being a good little coward, he shot and killed himself after first murdering Springfield Police Department Officer Kevin Ambrose and shooting his ex-girlfriend and mother of his child, Charlene Mitchell.

Nobody held a gun to his head and forced Shawn Bryan to murder anyone.  He stupidly chose to do that all on his own.  That his mother hasn’t the decency to think of anyone but herself is rather disgusting to me.

Kevin Ambrose has a family that now has to figure out how to live without him.  Does the self-absorbed and self-delusional Eldene King have anything to say to them?

Nope, not a word.  All she can do is blame the world for the fact that her son was a murderous nutbar who, like all good cowards, preferred to kill himself rather than face the consequences of his heinous actions. (more…)

Officer Kevin Ambrose murdered by a corrections officer during domestic dispute

Springfield-Police-Officer-Kevin-Ambrose

Springfield Police Department Officer Kevin Ambrose was murdered while doing the most dangerous job a police officer has: attending a domestic dispute call.  Ambrose, a 36-year veteran of the department, is survived by his wife, two children and a granddaughter.

My condolences and prayers go out to the family of Officer Kevin Ambrose as they try to come to terms with the senseless and untimely loss of their husband, father and grandfather.

My prayers also go out to Charlene Mitchell as she fights for her life in hospital, and to her family as they do whatever they can to help her in her hour of need.

The deranged murderer, Shawn Bryan, had a restraining order placed against him by his former girlfriend Charlene Mitchell.  The two had been separated for 11 months according to news reports, but despite his being employed by the New York City Department of Corrections, Shawn Bryan felt violence was the only way to resolve his differences with Mitchell.

As a result a good man is dead and a woman is in hospital fighting for her life.  The only upside here is that the murderer himself is dead.  That fact is little consolation to the family of Kevin Ambrose or Charlene Mitchell, however.

Springfield Police Commissioner William Fitchet said,

“It is with great regret and remorse that I announce a Springfield police officer was killed this afternoon.”

Commissioner Fitchet related the known facts at a press conference announcing the death of Officer Ambrose. (more…)

Mount Rainier National Park Ranger Margaret Anderson gunned down

OfficerDown

So much for “Happy New Year”… an Iraq war veteran goes nuts, shoots up Seattle before murdering Mount Rainier National Park Ranger and mother of two, Margaret Anderson.

The facts are somewhat sketchy, but what is known is this:

A park service employee tried pulling over the alleged shooter for a routine traffic stop.  That person refused to stop.

margaret-anderson Margaret Anderson blocked the road up ahead, forcing the man to come to a stop.  He jumped out of his vehicle and fired a shot or shots at Anderson, killing her before she was even able to get out of her vehicle.

January 1, 2012 was Park Ranger Margaret Anderson‘s last day alive.

The man ran off into the woods as police from across Pierce County converged on the site to find the killer.

An Associated Press report stated that a 24-year-old Iraq war veteran named Benjamin Colton Barnes was responsible for a shooting near Seattle that caused Seattle SWAT to launch a manhunt for him.  He then fled to Washington’s Mount Rainier National Park for reasons we will never know.

Officer Arnulfo Crispin: This Christmas try a little gratitude, and say a few prayers for those so much less fortunate than yourself

Officer Arnulfo Crispin

Gratitude: the state of being grateful.

Grateful: appreciative of benefits received.

Christmas is a time of year, not for seeing how many presents you can get from those around you, but to be grateful for what you have, even if you have almost nothing.  It’s a time to remember all those who have sacrificed and gave of themselves to do something for you, even when they weren’t asked.

Above all it’s a time to express how much we love one another and, if only for one day, set aside the petty crap that seems to fill up our lives the other 364 days of the year.

There is always someone who is worse off than you, no matter how bad off you might be.

There is always someone better off than you, no matter how well off you might think you are.

This Christmas I’m going to ask you to be grateful to all the men and women who serve us in our various local and national police forces.

While that may come as a surprise to those who read my articles week in and week out about my condemnation of corrupt and criminally violent police, it really shouldn’t come as a surprise.  My condemnation of the bad and corrupt cops is really just a lopsided expression of my appreciation for the good cops we have.

We are, in fact, blessed with a great many fantastic police men and women all across this great country.

Some of them are struggling far more than you and I this Christmas, and they can certainly use our thoughts and prayers at this time of the year.  After all, what does it really cost us to sit for a moment and be thankful for them and the job they do so thanklessly all year round on our behalf?

Lakeland Police Officer Arnulfo Crispin

Lakeland Police Officer Arnulfo Crispin

While there are many families I could specifically ask you to think about and pray for this Christmas, I’m going to focus on one family in Lakeland, Florida who has just lost their son and brother: Police Officer Arnulfo Crispin.

Deputy Marshal Stephen Brady is lucky to be alive

deputy-marshal-stephen-brady

Waterloo, Indiana Deputy Marshal Stephen Brady, 47, is a very lucky man this Christmas.  For doing what police officers do on a rainy and miserable night, helping broken-down motorists, Deputy Marshal Brady was shot in the face and left for dead.

Responding to a call from a home where a man and a woman had supposedly gone for help, claiming their car was in the ditch, Marshal Brady was shot in the face when he arrived.  The reason for shooting the Deputy Marshal are, so far, unknown.

What is known, of course, is that the shooting of Marshal Brady sparked a massive manhunt by Indiana police in an effort to find the couple, a manhunt that ended just 3 hours after it began.

As usually happens in cases like this, the massive search uncovered the perpetrators of the crime, who  stupidly decided to shoot it out with more than a dozen police officers.

12-2 aren’t particularly good odds, especially when the cops are extremely, shall we say, “displeased” with you, so it’s hardly a shock to learn that the male suspect was killed at the scene, and his partner, an as-yet unidentified woman, is in critical condition in hospital.

As is my standard response in these sorts of cases, I’m certainly not losing any sleep over the untimely death of 41-year-old Ralph Daniel Hardiek, the man who allegedly shot Marshal Brady in the face.

Wasting money to imprison someone who so callously disregards the life of the man who was only coming to his aid seems utterly pointless to me, as does the money wasted on a trial that precedes that incarceration.

Hardiek was no angel as his long criminal record confirms.

Bromont Police Officer Vincent Roy killed by passing vehicle

bromontpolicecrest.jpg

bromont-police-crest They say the two most dangerous activities for a cop are traffic stops and domestic dispute calls.  The latter makes sense because cops are walking into a volatile and unknown situation.

Handing someone a traffic ticket shouldn’t get you killed, but that’s exactly what happened to Officer Vincent Roy on Thursday, December 1, 2011.

It was just a routine traffic stop during the day on a clear stretch of Highway 1389, about 100 kilometres east of Montreal where  a vehicle apparently lost control and hit the police cruiser, then Vincent Roy.

He died at the scene.

“We’re still conducting interviews, we want to know what happened,” said spokesman Louis-Philippe Ruel. “If some witnesses can help us, that’s something we’re looking for to shed light on this to make sure that this kind of thing doesn’t happen again.”

“It seemed that the truck actually left its lane, went onto the shoulder of the road. this is where the first impact happened. the impact with the patrol car,” said Ruel.

Corrections Officer Buddy R. Herron murdered for lending a helping hand

buddyherron.jpg

Late in the evening on November 28, 2011 Buddy Herron stopped to help what he thought was a stranded motorist with a broken-down vehicle.  It was the last act of good will of his life.

buddyherronShortly after stopping to help someone, Buddy Herron made a 9-1-1 call in the last dying moments of his life.  The person he had stopped to help had stabbed him repeatedly, left him for dead and stolen his truck.

The piece of human garbage that murdered Buddy Herron was caught about an hour later after leading police on a high-speed chase that left Buddy Herron’s truck smashed at Exit 180.

Joshua Charles Weeks, 22, was arrested and charged with murdering the corrections officer and will, I pray, be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

Buddy Weeks succumbed to his injuries at St. Anthony’s Hospital in Pendleton, Oregon, shortly after being rushed there in an ambulance.

The family man leaves behind his wife and four children who are all devastated by the senseless killing of their husband and father.

Sgt. Janick Gilbert gave his life to save others

Sgt. Janick Gilbert

Today is a very sad day at the Canadian Forces Base in Trenton, Ontario.  Sgt. Janick Gilbert returned there today after giving his life to save a couple of strangers near Baffin Island in Canada’s Artic Region.

Gilbert and two other soldiers parachuted into the frigid waters near Igloolik, Nunavut, in an effort to rescue two boaters who appeared to be in serious trouble.

There is no official word on what caused his death, but parachuting into the water will have some obvious risks.

He is being remembered as a man who was the “consummate professional” who had a strong sense of duty and service to others.

A Vancouver Sun report on his death quoted Colonel Sean Friday:

“A brilliant operator with thirteen years of experience, Sgt. Gilbert will be sorely missed by all within the SAR (Search and Rescue) Tech trade and by all those who have had the pleasure of making his acquaintance,” Friday said in a statement. “His laughter and ‘joie de vive’ are only some of the many positive attributes that were so cherished by those who knew him.

“Janick lived by what the SAR community believes in and exemplified the meaning of rescue; he gave his life (so) ‘that others may live.'”

Prime Minister Harper also offered his condolences in a written statement.

“The Canadian Armed Forces’ search-and-rescue technicians are some of the best trained in the world, and have saved thousands of lives nationwide. Sgt. Gilbert was an extremely brave Canadian who made the ultimate sacrifice while proudly serving his country.”

There is no such thing as a “routine” Search and Rescue mission, and while generally these heros have things go precisely as they’ve trained for, yesterday’s tragedy shows that no matter how hard you train, sometimes circumstances just don’t go your way.
Sgt. Gilbert is survived by his wife and children, and it is with them that I would encourage you to offer your thoughts and prayers today as they struggle to come to terms with the loss of husband and father.

Richmond County Sheriff’s Deputy James D. Paugh: Gunned Down in Cold Blood

Richmond-County-Sheriff's-Deputy-James-D.-Paugh

It’s as tragic as it is horrifying… a disgruntled army soldier decides the best possible course of action is to shoot a policeman in cold blood.

Unfortunately for Richmond County Sheriff’s Deputy James Paugh, he had just finished a shift and was on his way home near Augusta, Georgia, when his path crossed that of Christopher Michael Hodges.

Hodges was a member of the Tennessee National Guard who had been training at Fort Gordon, GA for the past 6 months.

Whatever “issues” Hodges had with the world, we will never know because as just quickly as he fired the 9 shots that murdered Deputy James Paugh, he turned his M4 rifle on himself and ended his own life.

It would have been SO much better if Hodges would have just killed himself first and left Deputy Paugh out of it, and I suppose I’ll have to settle for being grateful Hodges is dead while mourning the loss of another good policeman.

As a cop, just surviving your shift some days can be a big deal, but to have accomplished that and be on your way home, only to have some lunatic shoot you dead just seems like the ultimate insult.

Walker Police Officer Trevor Slot: Killed in the Line of Duty

Walker-Police-Officer-Trevor-Slot

Today I’m writing to honour Walker Police Department Officer Trevor Slot, who was murdered on October 13, 2011 by a couple of scumbags who had just robbed a bank.  I’ve been writing a lot about the kind of cops we do NOT want here in British Columbia recently, so I thought I’d give an example of the kind we do want.

Officer Trevor Slot -- Photo Courtesy of the Walker Police Department

Officer Slot is, as far as I have been able to determine, was a good cop and a great guy.  Looking at his photograph you can see this is not some thug with a badge and gun.  This is a guy who genuinely wanted to make his community a better and safer place.

It was while he was in the act of doing just that, making his community a safer place, that he was run down by a couple of scumbags who had just robbed a bank.  Like a lot of the  scumbags who think the private property of others is theirs for the taking, these particular scumbags weren’t averse to shooting at the police officers who were trying to apprehend them.

When they spotted Officer Trevor Slot in their path (he was laying a spike belt across the road to stop them) they felt no qualms at all about aiming their vehicle right at him and running him down.

They’d robbed the Choice One Bank in Ravenna, Michigan, at about 10:30 that fateful morning and were noticed almost immediately by police.  A long chase ensued that ended shortly after they murdered Officer Slot.

Mercifly the vehicle the scumbags were in crashed just after they murdered Officer Slot, and they were stupid enough to fight back when the pursuiing officers arrived at the crash scene.

Officer Jeremy Henwood: Rest In Peace…

San-Diego-Police-Department-Officer-Jeremy-Henwood

San Diego Police Department Officer Jeremy Henwood was, if he can be judged by his last recorded act, a good and decent man.  His murderer seems all the more heinous simply because we know what that last recorded act was.

That last recorded act?

Buying a kid a meal at a local McDonalds restaurant.  As you will see in the video below, Henwood was buying himself something to eat as a young boy comes in and stands beside him in line.  They exchange a few words.  The kid shows Henwood the change in his hand… clearly not enough to buy the food he wants.

Henwood asks the kid what he wants and after paying for his own order already being filled, pays for the kid’s meal too.

It’s a small thing, buying a hungry kid (and complete stranger) a meal but it says pretty much all you need to know about the man who does such a thing.

The San Diego Police Department has clearly lost one of their best and most decent officers.

Why does Suicide-by-Cop always end up with the Cop dead?

Deputy-Sheriff-Kyle-Pagerly

I will not be naming the piece of crap who murdered Deputy Kyle Pagerly. I don’t believe I should. Jackasses like Pagerly’s murderer don’t deserve to be remembered. Decent young men like Kyle Pagerly, on the other hand, most definitely do.

Deputy Kyle Pagerly is a veteran of the Iraq war. He served his country honourably, and when he returned, he joined the Berks County Sheriffs Department. He was 25 years old when some pathetic piece of crap decided that shooting him in the head was the right thing to do.

There is nothing, in my opinion, so pathetic and useless as a coward who wants to die but can’t do the deed himself. Those particular cowards inevitably decide that Suicide By Cop is the solution.

I swear I will never understand why it’s easier to shoot a Deputy in the head than it is themselves. It would sure save the rest of us a lot of grief if they’d just leave the rest of us out of it, especially the poor family!

My heart goes out to the family of Deputy Kyle Pagerly. He deserved so much better than to die at the hands of a coward like this.
