NYT “Journalist” Julie Bosman – Hypocrite and “Stupid Little Bitch”

Julie-Bosman-Epitome-of-Hypocrite-and-Stupid-Little-Bitch-PFTR

Julie-Bosman-Epitome-of-Hypocrite-and-Stupid-Little-Bitch-PFTR

For those who don’t know, Julie Bosman is an [alleged] journalist who works for the New York Times. That’s the title the New York Times gives her, anyway. I call Julie Bosman an irresponsible and hypocritical little bitch who felt it was her absolute right to violate the privacy of Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson.

Officer Darren Wilson hit the national stage when he shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown, the event that sparked riots at the time and again this past week when the Grand Jury refused to indict Wilson.

[Alleged] journalist Julie Bosman clearly believes Wilson should be on trial for the shooting death of the young black man, despite not knowing all the facts. Monday morning quarterbacks can argue all day long but they, like alleged journalist Julie Bosman, argue from a position of ignorance.

The Grand Jury did hear all the facts and came to the conclusion Darren Wilson defended himself against criminal aggression.

Julie Bosman, perched high atop her moral tower, found Darren Wilson’s current home address and knew immediately what she would do with the information. She published Wilson’s address and the name of his fiancé in the New York Times newspaper. It has since been removed from the story, of course, thereby revising history in Bosman’s favour, but the comments on the story tell the tale vividly and are not so favourable:

Given the death threats against Darren Wilson, printing the street where he lives (not a long one) and his hometown is irresponsible. It’s also irrelevant to the story of his wedding.

Dangerous and utterly irresponsible to include the street where this couple resides. It is deeply disturbing that the reporter and/or editor at the NY Times did not exercise better judgment and realize that this was a serious problem.

Unbelievable…. That the Times would print the name of Officer Wilson’s bride and then print the name of the street and town they own a house on… totally irresponsible.

Julie Bosman felt she was doing a good and moral thing, while in truth she violated Darren Wilson’s rights by invading his privacy.

Her motive for publishing Wilson’s home address will never be known for certainty, but it is no stretch to believe she did it hoping someone would “get him” for killing Michael Brown, despite the fact that shooting was in self-defense.

In what Mad World News calls “the most reckless and careless move in journalism this year” Julie Bosman published Wilson’s home address and the name of his fiancé (now wife), practically guaranteeing their lives would be in jeopardy.

John Hawkins of Right Wing News issued a challenge to his Twitter followers:

“I will link to anybody who can publish the verified home address of @juliebosman & @campbellnyt”

It wasn’t long before the website GotNews did precisely that.

New York Times reporters Julie Bosman and Campbell Robertson published the address of Darren Wilson in the New York Times so here are their addresses. It would be wrong, for example, to publish Bosman’s address at

5620 N WAYNE AVE APT 2
CHICAGO, IL 60660-4204
COOK COUNTY

It would be similarly wrong to publish the address of Robertson, too.

1113 N DUPRE ST
NEW ORLEANS, LA 70119-3203
ORLEANS COUNTY

So why do journalists think they are beyond examination?

This is absolutely a case of “You reap what you sow.”

Julie Bosman reportedly is now calling the Chicago police non-stop because she feels “threatened“.

Huh. You’ll have to excuse me for not feeling sorry for her. And as for her “feeling threatened“… perhaps this stupid bitch ought to have considered how Officer Darren Wilson and his new wife would feel before publishing their home address for the world to see.

Maybe then she wouldn’t be terrified in her own home.

If we expect others to respect our Right to Privacy we must first respect theirs. It’s a shame it took her Right to Privacy being violated before Julie Bosman could comprehend the lesson.

While it is a brutal lesson to learn, I’m sure both Julie Bosman and Campbell Robertson learned it well this week, their terror and fear imprinting the lesson indelibly on their souls.

Mad World News said it best when they wrote:

As Hawkins points out, if they’re willing to endanger the lives of Wilson and his recent bride, then why wouldn’t they be okay with their own addresses being posted for the public to see? Nobody is beyond reproach, and these two scumbags just got a little taste of how it feels to have your personal life invaded over something that happened in their professional life.

Precisely.

Father Shoots, Kills Thugs Who Kidnapped his Daughter and used her as a Human Shield During Home Invasion

Home-Invaders-Shot-Dead-PFTR

Home-Invaders-Shot-Dead-PFTR

The story is terrifying.  A man, faced with two large black men invading his home, must choose how to deal with the thugs holding his daughter captive as a human shield.

Dialing 9-1-1?  Clearly not an option.

The setting: St. Louis, Missouri, 11pm.

The 17-year-old daughter is at her car grabbing stuff to bring into the house.  Two masked thugs grab her, put a gun to her head and, using her as a human shield, force their way inside the home.

The girl’s father watches this go down and grabs his own gun.

He fires at the masked home invaders, killing one and seriously wounding the other as they entered the front door.

Terrell Johnson, 31, was killed.

His accomplice, Cortez McClinton, 33, received multiple gunshot wounds to his chest and thighs. He is expected to recover.

Cortez McClinton, charged with second-degree murder, kidnapping, burglary and armed criminal action, was released from jail this past January when prosecutors dropped the murder charge against him when nobody would testify against him.

Clearly a model citizen, I have no doubt Cortez McClinton would not harm a soul inside the home he just invaded using a 17-year-old as a hostage while holding a gun to her head.

It was all for show.

Or so his family and friends will no doubt assert as they whine about his being shot and his accomplice now lies on a slab in the morgue.

On the bright side the 17-year-old daughter was completely unharmed even though her attackers suffered fatal and serious injuries, respectively.

Nobody else in the family was harmed inside the home either.

Only the masked home-invading scumbags were killed or injured, exactly as they ought.

Given the record of Cortez McClinton it seems a shame he will survive his injuries, but given that record it is also highly unlikely he will learn from the error of his ways.

With previous convictions for drugs and vehicle tampering and a dropped murder charge due to lack of witnesses, McClinton (right) does not appear to be a candidate for rehabilitation.

He will also face felony murder charges for the death of his accomplice as his actions led directly to Terrell Johnson’s death.

How appropriate.

Police say there are no charges against anyone inside the home as this is a clear-cut case of self-defense.

Again, how appropriate.

There are times when dialing 9-1-1 simply isn’t an option.  Everyone in that home would be dead long before police could ever arrive.

The only thing that kept them alive was a father who owns guns who possessed the willingness to use deadly force to save the lives of his his daughter and the rest of his family.

NOTE: His wife also shot at the intruders holding her daughter hostage. Now there are two parents I’d be proud to know!

So-called Mexican “Vigilantes” secured their towns from drug cartels… only then did government step in to “help them”

Mexican-Vigiliantes-Ordered-to-Register-Their-Guns-PFTR

Mexican-Vigiliantes-Ordered-to-Register-Their-Guns-PFTR

The western Mexican state of Michoacan is comprised of decent, hardworking people. Fed up with drug cartel crime and murders as well as police and government inaction dealing with them, these decent, hardworking people did what any self-respecting group of citizens should: They took up arms and rid themselves of the scourge the government was too cowardly to deal with.

Now that residents successfully rid their towns of the drug cartel the Mexican government is sweeping in to “save the day”.

Only governmental saving the day looks the same as it always does.. a lot like the tyranny they just rid themselves of.

In this case residents will be “allowed” too keep their guns… so long as they register their guns, of course.

The ceremony in the town of Tepalcatepec, where the movement began in February 2013, will involve the registration of thousands of guns by the federal government and an agreement that the so-called “self-defense” groups will either join a new official rural police force or return to their normal lives and acts as voluntary reserves when called on. The government will go town by town to organize and recruit the new rural forces.

This is a process of giving legal standing to the self-defense forces,” said vigilante leader Estanislao Beltran.

Not everyone is thrilled with the government stepping in after the fact, demanding all firearms be registered, and those individuals join the new rural police force.

Given the government’s lack of ability to deal with drug cartel violence, many couldn’t care less about the “legal standing” of themselves or their firearms.

We don’t want them to come, we don’t recognize them,” vigilante Melquir Sauceda said of the government and the new rural police forces. “Here we can maintain our own security. We don’t need anyone bringing it from outside.”

There is a lesson here for those willing to see it. A free people does not need permission from government to protect themselves, their families, their communities and their livelihoods. Such a concept is an athema to liberty.

The new rural forces are designed to be a way out of an embarrassing situation, in which elected leaders and law enforcement agencies lost control of the entire state to the pseudo-religious Knights Templar drug cartel. Efforts to retake control with federal police and military failed.

If government is so all-powerful, they wouldn’t need a way out of this “embarrassing situation”, would they?

This (demobilization) agreement is just something to please the government,” said Rene Sanchez, 22, a vigilante from the self-defense stronghold of Buenavista. “With them or without them, we are going to keep at it.

Residents of Canada and the United States ought to listen to the simple wisdom of the so-called vigilantes of the Michoacan state of Mexico. It’s a maxim I’ve stated repeatedly over the years.

The only ones present when criminals strike are we mere citizens… the saviours of government and the police are nowhere to be found until much later, if we are lucky enough to still be alive upon their arrival.

Self-defense is deeply personal, and we must take responsibility for our own safety. Nobody can assume that responsibility for us.

Government cannot provide it for us, no matter how much they try to convince us otherwise.

Two Home-Invading Thieves Shot Dead and Who does Mom Blame?

Home-Invading-Thieves-Shot-Dead-PFTR
Attila Vaski, Ryan Steacy liked this post

Two young criminals, Steven Crider (16) and Michael Sambrano (14), discovered the error of their ways in the early morning hours of May 4, 2012. Upon breaking into the Sacramento, California, home of an elderly woman in her 60’s they were both shot dead.

California homeowners are protected by legislation that protects their right to defend themselves and their property, often called “Stand Your Ground” legislation. Police ruled the shootings self-defense, not a stretch given both dead criminals were found inside the house.

Naturally Lisa Sambrano, mother of the dead 14 year old home invader, complained to the media,

I just don’t understand why they were shot multiple times.

Then you are a profoundly dumb woman, Lisa Sambrano. Your son broke into the home of an elderly woman whose home. He was a criminal who thought he could do as he pleased with no consequences for his criminal actions. He was wrong and paid for his stupidity with his life.

Christina Sambrano, slain criminal Michael Sambrano’s younger sister, whined to the press:

They were on their way out the door, and I just think it was wrong that they were shot.”

Given your younger daughter sees no issue with her brother’s criminal actions, Ms. Sambrano, only with his being shot dead because of them, you really ought to brush up on your parenting skills and teach your daughter the concept of “personal responsibility“. Clearly your daughter has no clue about this fundamental building block of character.

A couple of questions you may also want to ask yourself, Ms. Sambrano, are these:

1. What was your 14-year-old son doing breaking into a home after midnight on a school night?
2. Why was he not home in bed getting a good night’s sleep in preparation for school on Monday morning?

Let me guess… you have absolutely no idea.

Here’s how a rational and sensible people view the killing of your criminal son and his moronic friend Steven Crider.

Other residents in the neighborhood believe the teens got what they deserved for burglarizing homes in the area. Robert Robinson’s home was burglarized twice and he said:

Justice was served.

David Keck, another neighbor told the media:

He was not an innocent bystander. I’m sorry the little boys or teenagers were killed, but if it’s my family, my family comes first.

It is unfortunate that two young men lost their lives in the early morning hours of May 4th, 2014. However, I will not lose any sleep over their untimely deaths as both these young criminals got precisely what they deserved.

Thieves broke into this elderly woman’s home two times prior to May 4th as well, April 20th and April 29th. After the second break-in she called her brother, a man in his 70’s, to come stay with her for a while. She was naturally scared for her life after being broken into twice in the early hours of the morning in under two weeks.

Less than a week later Steven Crider and Michael Sambrano broke into her home. Fingerprint evidence showed that one of the two teens, although police did not specify which one, matched prints from the break-in on April 20th.

Yeah, good little boys these, right?

On the plus side of two dead home-invading criminals is the unintended consequence it provides… this area of Sacramento will likely be safe from robberies and break-ins for some time to come.

That’s a good thing.

Families of Slain Robbers Threaten to Sue Man who Killed Robbers While Defending Himself

Parents-In-Denial-Sale-PFTR

Parents-In-Denial-Sale-PFTR“He was such a good boy!  He didn’t deserve to die!”

“Robbing a convenience store shouldn’t be a death sentence!”

“He had no right to kill my boy.  He was a good boy!”

Bla bla bla.

If he was such a good boy, why did he rob a store at gunpoint, and then threaten an innocent shopper outside the store he just robbed?

It’s a simple question.

The answer is a lot more complicated, of course.  As the Bible tells us in Romans 3:10, “As it is written: ‘There is none righteous, no, not one;’” meaning that good people do bad things all the time.

It’s in our nature.

The harsh reality for the families of the two slain armed robbers is that Actions Have Consequences. If you rob a store with a gun, odds are you will pay steep consequences for that choice.

This all unfolded at Krick’s Korner Store in Reading, Pennsylvania.  A private citizen walking down the street saw two men inside the store pointing firearms at the store clerk.  He immediately called 9-1-1 to report the armed robbery in progress.  Then the two armed criminals exited the store and threatened him.

He shot them both dead.

A third suspect was arrested a short time later.  He wisely did not resist arrest.

“[William] had no right to lose his life over something that man could have called the police for,” said Virginia Medina, mother of slain armed-robber William Medina. “He took the law into his own hands and walked away scot-free.”

Uh, no, that is not what happened.

He DID call the police.  Only after your thug son threatened his life did this civilian defend himself, meeting your son’s lethal force with his own.  He acted in self-defense.  There is a difference.

Reading Police Department Sgt. John Solecki said in an interview with local media,

“He saw the first suspect with his arms extended, holding a large revolver, and he looked and saw a second suspect, also with his arms extended.”

Alexander Garcia-Bialek, the would-be getaway driver, was charged Tuesday with second degree murder and conspiracy.

“He was charged as an accomplice because he was involved in the planning of this robbery where they targeted that store,” said Solecki.

Keith Heckman, commenting on this story, wrote:

Let’s get this straight America. “Good boys” don’t point guns and rob people. Good boys shoot the guys that rob people.

Amen.

If getting shot down like a dog in the street isn’t on your Bucket List, then don’t rob stores at gunpoint.

You should also avoid pointing weapons at individuals willing to stand up to thieving thugs like William Medina and Robert De Carr.

Actions Have Consequences. 

Now there are three words to live by…

A Police Chief Defending Citizens’ Right to Self Defense?

Detroit-Police-Chief-James-Craig-PFTR

Detroit-Police-Chief-James-CraigI’ve written about Detroit Police Chief James Craig before. I could probably write about him weekly and the message would still be missed by those too brain-dead to comprehend Craig’s support of civilian self defense.

James Craig believes each and every one of us has the right to defend ourselves against aggression, even if that means not dialing 9-1-1 until the problem is already solved.

By “problem” I mean the home invader, the attempted rapist, the violent criminal intent on robbing you or worse… should one of we mere citizens shoot a bad guy James Craig will not lose any sleep over it and he doesn’t want the good citizens of Detroit to do so either.

“Coming from California (Craig was on the Los Angeles police force for 28 years), where it takes an act of Congress to get a concealed weapon permit, I got to Maine, where they give out lots of CCWs (carrying concealed weapon permits), and I had a stack of CCW permits I was denying; that was my orientation. I changed my orientation real quick. Maine is one of the safest places in America. Clearly, suspects knew that good Americans were armed.”

Instead of doing what Canada’s RCMP is currently, namely harassing law-abiding gun owners and turning them into criminals and fabricating stories about mass shootings with AK47s, Detroit Police Chief James Craig is doing what police ought to do.

He’s going after actual criminals.

He feels no need to manufacture them out of his law-abiding citizenry, and for that he is to be commended.

Going after the bad guys does come at a cost, of course, which is why the RCMP doesn’t seem very interested in following James Craig’s lead.

Bad guys do stupid things when police get in the way of their “earning” power, and Detroit Police Chief James Craig’s case is no exception. He’s knocked such a hole in Detroit’s drug crime that the dealers want him dead. Literally.

From DetroitNews.com:

The FBI and local police are investigating a threat to kill Police Chief James Craig, the chief said Saturday.

The threat, made over the internet by a man believed to be a drug dealer, was uncovered Friday, Craig said.

“We got information that a dope dealer basically said ‘We need to take the chief out,’” Craig said. “We investigated it, and it was deemed a credible threat. This is the kind of thing that happens in third-world countries.”

Craig believes the man who made the threat is upset because police are costing him money by ramping up the number of drug-house raids they conduct.

“We’re raiding, on average, 35 dope houses a week, and we’ve done five large-scale sweeps, and it’s putting a serious crimp in the dope dealers’ money,” Craig said. “What I take from this is, what we’re doing is working. This guy actually did me a favor, because he let me know we’re making a difference by going after these dope dealers.”

“I want to be there when we get this guy. I want to look him in the eye. You don’t threaten any police officer, let alone the police chief.”

Here in Canada, however, we’re content with turning over 13,000 law-abiding citizens into criminals overnight, all at the whim of some RCMP bureaucrats.

As I’ve said before and will no doubt say again, law-abiding gun owners don’t shoot cops. Real criminals will.

San Antonio – The One Theatre Shooting You’ve Never Heard Of

A-Mass-Shooting-Stopped-by-a-Good-Guy-with-a-Gun

A-Mass-Shooting-Stopped-by-a-Good-Guy-with-a-Gun

Does anyone aside from me find it bizarre that the mainstream press utterly ignores shootings where the would-be mass killer is stopped by a good guy with a gun?

The restaurant and theatre shooting in San Antonio, just 2 days after the school shooting tragedy in Connecticut, is basically a ghost story as far as the mainstream media is concerned. Outside of “pro-gun” circles, it’s practically unheard of.

Those of us who comprehend the only thing that stops evil in its tracks is a good guy with a gun, or in the case of the San Antonio theatre shooting, a good girl with a gun, believe this case should be front page news in every newspaper in the nation.

An unidentified woman was on guard at the Santikos Mayan Palace 14 theater complex the night of the shooting so when the armed moron, who had just shot his ex-girlfriend in the restaurant next door, entered the theatre to see who else he could shoot, he found his own body riddled with bullets instead.

Needless to say, he didn’t shoot anyone else after that.

Why not?

Because a trained woman with a firearm in hand refused to allow any more innocent bodies drop that night.

No-Handguns-AllowedThat’s also why you won’t hear this story anywhere on the mainstream media… there was no trail of dead bodies for the news cameras to follow; no spilled blood for the newscaster to bathe in while she weeps, wails and whines all while proclaiming “the gun” caused this awful tragedy.

The heroic woman, an off-duty Bexar County police officer, is being honored for her brave and life-saving actions but, as I said, you won’t hear about her or the award she is receiving on the evening news.

A woman stopping a mass shooting isn’t news. Only a high body count that gives a biased news media a platform to advance their anti-gun agenda is news. Only another thoroughly preventable tragedy inside one of their glorious Gun-Free Zones is worthy of the national media’s attention.

This woman and her story should be front-page news across America, but it is not. Sadly, the only people who will ever even know about her and what she did that fateful night in December are the good citizens of San Antonio honoring her, and good folks like me and perhaps you who are reading this article.

The mainstream media will continue to totally ignore this woman and her heroism… all because there is no body count and therefore no story… at least in their sad and pathetic little minds.

You’d think the fact that there was no body count, that a mass murder was avoided, would be proudly trumpeted from the rooftops, yet it is not.

Instead we glorify mass murder and vilify or ignore those who prevent it.

That truly is a national tragedy and a disgrace for the profession of journalism across America.

Ian Thomson found NOT GUILTY of safe storage charges

Ian-Thomson-Acquitted

Ian-Thomson-Acquitted

January 3, 2012

Ian Thomson of Port Colbourne, Ontario, was found NOT GUILTY by Justice Colvin in a 45-minute decision that finally takes the weight off the man who had the audacity to defend his life from masked men trying to murder him in his home while he slept.

It’s a case that should never happened.

Police should have commended Thomson for his restraint in firing warning shots over the heads of the men who tried to murder him, not arrest him on bogus safe storage charges.

Crown Counsel should have declined to prosecute because it is not in the public interest to proceed with such an asinine case.  Then again, Crown Counsel should have charged the men who tried to kill Ian Thomson with attempted murder too… something they just couldn’t bring themselves to do.

Naturally, when the Crown Counsel’s head is stuffed this far into his own behind, he won’t accept the decision of the court.  Long before the decision came down today, January 3rd, Crown prosecutors made it very clear they would appeal the decision if it didn’t go their way.

I truly do not comprehend the mindset of police and lawyers who would rather see a man dead, burned alive, than defend his life against masked men trying to murderer him.

It makes no sense to me.

Unless, that is,  I accept the fact that police and crown prosecutors, at least in Ontario, do not believe we mere citizens of Canada should be “allowed” to defend our lives in the face of imminent and mortal danger.

It’s fine for them, of course… just not for the rest of us.

The sheer hypocrisy of this is, well, disgusting.

Let me leave you with a few thoughts I wrote almost a year ago in an article titled “Vigilantism vs Self-Defense: Why Bob Rae is a buffoon completely out of touch with reality

…in the early morning hours of August 22, 2010, Port Colborne, Ontario resident Ian Thomson used a legally-owned and registered handgun to fire warning shots over the heads of the three murderous cretins (no relation to our former prime minister) who were attempting to kill him by burning down Mr. Thomson’s home with him inside it.

The police and Crown prosecutors have decided that saving his own life is not acceptable behaviour.  Instead, Crown prosecutors seem to be content that Ian Thomson should have dialed 9-1-1 and then promptly died at the hands of his attackers, like a good little sheeple.

A police officer actually had the gall to say that Thomson was able to retrieve his firearms “too quickly”, therefore he was obviously guilty of the unsafe storage of firearms.

It’s an asinine comment and an even more asinine conclusion to draw.  Ian Thomson’s life was in immediate and imminent danger from three men caught on video cameras screaming death threats and tossing Molotov cocktails at his home.

It was only his ability to retrieve his firearms and fire a couple of warning shots to scare off his would-be murderers that allows Ian Thomson to be alive to suffer the abusive prosecution he is currently facing, not to mention the moronic comments of that policeman and now Bob Rae.

This is beyond absurd.  If an inmate inside a maximum security prison can use a concealed weapon to kill another inmate according the the Supreme Court of Canada (R. v. Kerr, [2004] 2 S.C.R. 371, 2004 SCC 44), then why can’t a man with no criminal record and a legally-owned firearms defend his life against three men actively trying to murder him?

Gun-Free Zones Kill Kids

Gun-Free-Zones-Kill-Kids

Gun-Free-Zones-Kill-Kids

Before I go any further, I want to express my deepest condolences to the families of every child and adult who was so senselessly murdered yesterday. My most sincere thoughts and prayers go out to every one of those families.

All day Friday the news poured out of Connecticut about the latest tragic and horrifying shooting of kindergarten students and their teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary School by another deranged lunatic with a gun.

The high death toll is horrifying, but it is far from unexpected.

Every mass shooting has the same common denominator: A GUN-FREE ZONE.

What no news station in North America was willing to tell us, naturally, is that this mass shooting had one thing in common with every other mass shooting: the lunatic with a gun went to a place where he KNEW he would face no resistance. Lawmakers saw to it that carrying a defensive firearm was illegal at this school, just like they’ve done to every other school in America.

When you guarantee children are unprotected and their teachers are defenseless, when you ensure the killer has a Gun-Free Zone, of course the death toll is going to be high.

There isn’t anyone who can stop the madman with a gun on the scene… not until police can arrive.

By then, as was tragically proven again yesterday, the madman has already done his worst and then taken his own life so he can’t be held accountable for his heinous actions.

Yet the same tired people trot out the same tired rhetoric they trot out after every mass shooting… yet not a single one of these lame chuckleheads will face up to the truth.

That truth is simple, really. So simple the Israelis have used it since the 1970s to effectively stop terrorist attacks on their schools.

target-250x250They trained and armed their teachers.

Would-be terrorists only attacked an Israeli school once after that program took effect. That’s all that was required for the terrorists to realize their former easy targets were easy no more.

Nobody “wants” to arm teachers. Nobody wants war either, but sometimes it cannot be prevented.

There is a war going on right now, and our children are paying for it with their lives because we are simply too afraid, too cowardly, or maybe just too caught up in “being right” to understand there is a solution to mass shootings.

We’re just not willing to implement that solution.

As long as we insist on burying our collective head in the sand there will be more mass shootings in schools, and more innocent children will die a horrible but totally preventable death.

Gun-Free Zones only protect the killer.

Why is that so hard to comprehend?

This is why Israeli schoolchildren are safe. Armed Teachers prevent madmen with guns. This is the simple truth America refuses to acknowledge.

This is why Israeli schoolchildren are safe. Armed Teachers prevent madmen with guns.

Ian Thomson’s attempted murderers sentenced today… but not for the charge of attempted murder

Ian-Thomson's-attempted-murderers-sentenced-today

Ian-Thomson's-attempted-murderers-sentenced-today

In the early morning hours of August 22, 2010, Ian Thomson’s home was attacked by four men screaming that they were going to kill him. They tossed Molotov cocktails at his home and dog kennel and did not back off until Ian Thomson grabbed one of his legally-owned pistols and fired a couple of warning shots over their heads.

Then, like the cowards they are, the would-be murderers ran for their pathetic little lives, presumably to change into some clean underwear.

Today the four cowards were sentenced to prison time, but not for the charge of attempted murder. They were never charged with attempted murder. They were charged instead with arson, a much lesser charge.

Why?

You’d have to ask the dim light-bulbs at the Crown prosecutors office in St. Catharines, Ontario, who are far more interested in putting the would-be murder victim in prison than his attempted murderers.

It sure doesn’t make any sense to me.

Here are the sentences handed down today for the 4 would-be murderers, who pleaded guilty to arson and disregard for human life:

  • Richard Coulthurst – 3 years.
  • Justin Lee – 3 years.
  • Michael Theberge – 2 years.
  • Randy Weaver – 2 years in addition to the 29 months he has already spent in jail.

Of course these men will only spend a fraction of their sentenced time behind bars.

Needless to say, Ian Thomson was not impressed.

I’m livid,” he said. “These guys have effectively destroyed my life. They should have got life, all of them.”

All four men also received a LIFETIME WEAPONS BAN but as Norm Lapierre of the Canadian Association for Self Defense wrote,

as if sociopaths who think nothing of ganging up 4 to 1 to burn their intended victim alive in his own house will have any reservations about re-arming themselves illegally at the earliest opportunity.”

All four men must also submit a DNA sample.

All that means is that the police will be able to link these criminals to their next crime scene AFTER THE FACT. And given their past history, there most certainly will be a “next victim”.

While all this goes on, the Crown Persecutor is still doing his level best to send Ian Thomson to prison for unsafe storage of a firearm. This charge was laid, in part, because the Crown Persecutor cannot abide the thought of a mere citizen using a firearm to save his own life, nor can he imagine that we may actually be able to retrieve one from legal storage in time to do so.

The Crown Persecutor is on record saying even “if” the judge decides to acquit Thomson next month, he will appeal that decision.

This is not based on any anticipated miscarriage of justice, merely on the fact he refuses to accept a verdict of “not guilty”.

Under Canada’s Firearms Act, as this case proves so very well, the process is the punishment and the Crown prosecutor will spare no taxpayer dollars ensuring Ian Thomson is punished as much as possible, regardless of the facts or the verdict.

He has, in all meaningful fashion, made himself Ian Thomson’s judge, jury, and executioner.

This is an utter miscarriage of justice, but this is what firearm owners in Canada have come to expect.

While your attempted murderers get a measly 2 years in prison, only a portion of which will actually be served behind bars, the Crown prosecutor wants to send Ian Thomson to prison for the “crime” of defending himself from clear and imminent danger by men intent on murdering him.

That’s not justice. That’s a travesty, a disgrace, a shame on the entire Canadian justice system.

Norman Lapierre will make the trip to Ian Thomson’s court hearing and I hope that anyone within commuting distance will show up as well.

We must all stand behind Ian Thomson, regardless of whether you are a firearms owner or not. This is a direct assault on his human right to defend his life, and ours as well.

If Ian Thomson loses this case, every Canadian citizen loses as well, for his Right to Self-Defense is OUR Right to Self-Defense. If he doesn’t have it, neither do we.

The judge is scheduled to render his decision on Ian Thomson’s fate at the Welland Courthouse on January 3rd, 2013 at 2:00pm.

Please attend and show your support, as this case affects YOUR right to defend yourself too.

Charges Dropped Against Moses Mahilal: Is this Crown Prosecutors discovering Common Sense, or merely protecting their conviction rates

Moses-Mahilal-What-was-I-supposed-to-do

Moses-Mahilal-What-was-I-supposed-to-do

When I heard the news earlier today that all charges against Moses Mahilal were dropped I was both shocked and elated at the same time. It’s incredibly uncommon for Ontario Crown Prosecutors to do the right thing… or to be more specific, to correct the injustice they have already perpetrated by laying charges against the victim of a crime in the first place.

As you may or may not remember, Moses Mahilal lives with his girlfriend Sarah Walsh and Sarah’s mother Kimberly Walsh in Etobicoke, Ontario. In July 31, 2011 the couple came home late to discover the door open and an unknown pair of shoes at the bottom of the stairs. Upon further investigation and after grabbing a kitchen knife to defend himself, Moses found the home invader hiding behind Sarah’s mother’s bedroom door.

A fight ensued and the home invader, one Kino Johnson, was stabbed a couple of times before running away. He was ultimately arrested by police, yet Crown prosecutors wasted no time taking the wounded home invader’s word as Gospel before charging Mahilal with a crime: aggravated assault.

If convicted Moses Mahilal could face up to 14 years in prison. That’s a serious penalty for the “crime” of defending yourself and your loved ones from a repeat offender like Kino Johnson.

Johnson had previously been convicted of break and enter five times before this. God only knows how many crimes like this he had committed but wasn’t convicted of.


Holiday gifts at up to 90% off!
As I wrote back on September 4th under the title “Ontario’s Crown prosecutors insist upon confusing self-defense with assault“,

Imagine you are out with your girlfriend for the evening. You have a lovely time together and come home in the wee hours of the morning, only to find your front door wide open. Your girlfriend’s mother lives with both of you so your concern for her safety immediately goes into overdrive.

This being Canada you’re not legally allowed to carry a firearm, so you run to the kitchen and arm yourself with a kitchen knife, the only defensive tool close at hand. While you hear nothing, your girlfriend’s mother’s bedroom is upstairs and as you round the corner you stare in horror at what’s sitting at the bottom of the stairs.

In a bizarre twist your home invader has had the courtesy to take his shoes off before ransacking your home.

Running upstairs you discover the intruder hiding behind your girlfriend’s mother’s bedroom door. He attacks you and you defend yourself with the knife you grabbed in the kitchen. The home invader is injured in the struggle, seriously, but your girlfriend’s mother is safe and that’s all that matters.

God only knows what could have happened had you not arrived home when you did.

You call the police who come and arrest the home invader… and then they arrest you for the “crime” of assaulting the man who invaded your home.

Exactly what country is this again???

Defending-Yourself-Should-Not-Be-A-Crime-in-Canada

Sure doesn’t sound like Canada, does it? At least not the Canada I want to live in.Matt Gurney had a great writeup in the National Post where he explains quite clearly that the process is the punishment.

On Thursday, the Crown suddenly dropped the charge against Mahilal, saying that it had reviewed the evidence and there was no reasonable prospect of a conviction.That’s great news for Mahilal. But it does raise the question why he was charged at all, and why the Crown needed so long to conclude that the entire legal proceeding — including last months’ pretrial hearings — was a waste of time.

In Ontario, it is police who lay charges if they determine there’s a reasonable prospect of a conviction. The Crown takes it from there. But it’s been more than a year. Was this the first moment the Crown could find to declare that they wouldn’t pursue the case? Think of the court resources wasted, not to mention the stress on Mahilal and the Walshes, during that period. And then there’s the money Mahilal spent defending himself against a hopeless prosecution.

But Mahilal wasn’t tried. He was partially tried, and then the Crown gave up. It can only be concluded that he never should have been tried, even in part, at all.

Gurney goes on to explain how this case is pretty much the textbook definition of self-defense.

Mahilal’s case is clear cut. He found an intruder in his home at night, and defended himself with force against that intruder. His actions are clearly covered by the Criminal Code’s Section 34, which allows people to use force in self-defence if they believe they have no choice and that they are under direct threat. Finding someone in your home at night certainly fits that definition. Indeed, short of being attacked by an axe-wielding madman straight out of a Hollywood thriller, it’s hard to imagine what could fit the definition better.

Now at first glance it would appear that Crown prosecutors in this case have re-discovered their long-lost common sense and dropped all charges against Moses Mahilal.

Yeah, maybe at first glance… but upon a closer examination here is what you will find:

Crown prosecutors “reviewed the evidence” and found there was “no reasonable prospect of a conviction.

In other words, they gave up, but not before penalizing Moses Mahilal both emotionally and financially.

The process is the punishment.

This isn’t common sense rearing its head at all, as Crown prosecutors in Ontario seem pathologically incapable of admitting they’ve made a mistake. This is merely the repulsive self-interest of Ontario’s Crown prosecutors rearing its ugly head.

They will not admit they were wrong in bringing charges against Moses Mahilal in the first place… Not a chance. This is merely a case of Crown prosecutors realizing their precious conviction rate was in jeopardy if they moved forward against Mahilal.

That being said, I’m delighted they dropped the charges against Moses Mahilal… regardless of their reasoning…

But wouldn’t it be nice if these boneheads could get the concept of self-defense through their thick skulls BEFORE dragging someone through the court system for no reason?

Oops… I forgot…

The process is the punishment.

Sometimes would-be robbers get just what they deserve

china-dragron

Gatineau, Quebec store owner Zhen Yang and his wife did what they had to do when two masked thugs tried to rob them:  They fought back.

But it’s how they fought that I found so inspiring.  After pepper-spraying one of the thieves in the face with bear spray, Yang heaved the young thug onto the counter and then spanked him twice before his wife kicked the jerk in the head a few times for good measure.

Naturally, police say you should not take matters into your own hands and “call the professionals”… but sometimes that’s just not practical. While police serve a valuable function, they can only investigate after the fact, and can’t return what was stolen from you.

That said, I’m not saying you should ALWAYS fight back like this brave couple did, but there are times where you just gotta do what you just gotta do, and for that I commend Zhen Yang and his wife for their brave actions.

And is it really any surprise that CBC would call these two upstanding citizens “vigilantesin the link to their article?

No, I guess not… the Nanny State Broadcasting Corporation doesn’t believe law-abiding citizens should actually stand up for themselves. How predictably pathetic of them.

What’s worse is the Gatineau Police response to Yang’s actions.

…charges will not be laid against the clerk because the accused men did not complain.

What???  Have they lost their freaking minds?   Who gives a crap if the thieves complained?  Certainly not me.

Yang and his wife were the victims here.  Why is that so hard for the Gatineau Police (and the CBC) to comprehend?

Anyway, I literally laughed out loud as I watched this little puke get exactly what he deserved!  Here then, for your viewing pleasure is How to Deal With Thugs, by Zhen Yang.

The US Government believes you’re a right-wing terrorist if…

knowyourrights

The US Government believes you’re a right-wing terrorist if… you have a brain and aren’t afraid to use it.

The US Government routinely demeans, denigrates, ridicules, detests and prosecutes individuals for the “thought crime” of believing what the Constitution of the Constitution of the United States of America actually says.

The United States Government has, for a very long time now, had their priorities completely screwed up.

Last year a report out of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) titled “Right-Wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment“.  In that venerable piece of propaganda the DHS minions came to such mind-numbing conclusions as:

  • The possible passage of new restrictions on firearms and the return of military veterans facing significant challenges reintegrating into their communities could lead to the potential emergence of terrorist groups or lone wolf extremists capable of carrying out violent attacks.
  • The high volume of purchases and stockpiling of weapons and ammunition by rightwing extremists in anticipation of restrictions and bans in some parts of the country continue to be a primary concern to law enforcement.
  • Returning veterans possess combat skills and experience that are attractive to rightwing extremists. DHS/I&A is concerned that rightwing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize returning veterans in order to boost their violent capabilities.

Let us not forget the Department of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms “Fast and Furious” program, in which these morons couldn’t dump guns into the hands of known felons and drug cartels fast enough, all because they despise guns in the hands of law-abiding American citizens.  Their gross incompetence and stupidity only managed to get US Border Services Agent Brian A. Terry murdered.  It did nothing to further their aim of stripping Americans of their Second Amendment Rights.

Fallout from the BATF’s Fast and Furious scandal is still with us, and with any luck will help aid the downfall of “The Anointed One“, aka “The Empty Suit“, aka “America’s First Half-Black President” aka “The Coward In Chief “or as he calls himself today, Barack Hussein Obama in just a few short weeks.

Barack Hussein Obama will go down as the most cowardly president in American history, stripping that title from Jimmy Carter.  Who knew it would be possible for a US President to be more cowardly in the face of islamic terrorism than Jimmy Carter?

The latest from the mighty moron squad is the US Department of Justice (DOJ) training manual called “Terrorism Training For Law Enforcement“, in which something as simple as a bumper sticker on your vehicle or even having a map sitting on your passenger seat is deemed sufficient reason to violate your rights and search both you and your vehicle without a warrant.

Ontario’s Crown prosecutors insist upon confusing self-defense with assault

Moses-Mahilal-under arrest
Moses Mahilal

Moses Mahilal is accused of assaulting the man who invaded his home and threatened his girlfriend’s mother’s life.

Imagine you are out with your girlfriend for the evening.  You have a lovely time together and come home in the wee hours of the morning, only to find your front door wide open.  Your girlfriend’s mother lives with both of you so your concern for her safety immediately goes into overdrive.

You call the police who come and arrest the home invader… and then they arrest you for the “crime” of assaulting the man who invaded your home.

Exactly what country is this again???

That’s precisely the question Moses Mahilal asked himself as he sat in a jail cell, under arrest for the “crime” of self-defense and defending the life of his loved ones.

Wendy Cukier’s dangerous fallacy that women can’t defend themselves

women-educating-in-self-defense-training

“Windy Wendy” Cukier

Women like Wendy Cukier are dangerous.

Wendy Cukier of Canada’s Coalition for Gun Control is one of those individuals who believe the entire world should be run to fit her personal desire, and that’s a very dangerous thing. Yes, to guys like me who happen to like guns, to be sure, but she is far more dangerous to woman than she will ever be to me or any other man and our guns.

While I don’t agree with Susan B. Anthony on a number of subjects, on the subject of self-defense she is definitely right on target.

I declare to you that woman must not depend upon the protection of man, but must be taught to protect herself, and there I take my stand.

A person is not protected by rendering them defenseless.

The paradox of Cukier’s position on “gun control” is that she actually achieves the exact opposite of what she claims she wants: women to be protected from violence.

In saying that self-defense is not a legitimate use of firearms, Wendy Cukier disempowers women the world over.

Instead of hating inanimate objects (firearms) perhaps Ms. Cukier ought to instead hate the human behavior that would subjugate women.  Instead of hating “violence against women” no matter how worthy that may appear on the surface, perhaps she ought to work on actually empowering women to defend themselves appropriately in the face of an abusive man.

Instead of stripping women of the very firearms they can handle effectively, short-barreled handguns that are now effectively banned in Canada thanks to Cukier’s efforts, she ought to be leading gun safety classes at the local shooting range.

The fallacy that we will ever disarm violent criminals and other evildoers is just that: a fallacy… a pipe dream… a false hope that can never, ever be realized.

Bad people will ALWAYS get guns if that’s what they want.  And who do the good people call when they’re confronted with some violent person with a gun?

Another person with a gun.  We call these people “police”. (more…)

Warren Kinsella is “a fucking idiot” who despises YOUR Rights and Freedoms

WARREN KINSELLA

Warren Kinsella, touted as a “Liberal badboy“, showed his true colors a week ago on his blog and again last night on Sun TV.

Warren Kinsella despises your Liberty.  Warren Kinsella despises your Charter Rights.  Warren Kinsella believes you have absolutely no right to defend yourself from a violent attacker, especially if you’re using a handgun to do so.

Warren Kinsella despises you, too, if you have the audacity to believe the first line of defense against violent criminals is you, the person actually present when the violent criminal strikes, and not the police.

A week ago the moronic Kinsella wrote the following:

If you don’t favour a ban on private ownership of handguns, you’re a fucking idiot

Obviously Warren Kinsella can’t comprehend the simple truth that criminals don’t obey laws.  That is why, after all, they’re referred to as criminals.

Warren Kinsella can’t comprehend that it’s already illegal for a person to merely point a firearm at another human being, let alone shoot them with one!

Nope, according to Kinsella, a handgun ban will solve all the world’s problems.

Warren Kinsella is a moron.

He naively believes that if we disarm the good people, namely law-abiding citizens, that the bad people, namely violent criminals who kill people in shopping malls and at block parties, will magically behave like decent human beings.

That’s not gonna happen.

Kinsella refuses to acknowledge proven studies like John Lott’s “More Guns, Less Crime”, which proves that firearms in civilian hands makes for a safer society.

He believes Ian Thomson of Port Colbourne, Ontario, should have just stood there like a good little Liberal and dialed 9-1-1 while three masked thugs attempted to kill him by burning his house down around him with Molotov cocktails.

It goes without saying that both Ian Thomson and I believe quite differently, and that it’s Warren Kinsella, not a handgun owner, who is the “fucking moron“.
