Agent Shoots Co-Worker In Long Beach Federal Building

Published by:

A federal immigration agent shot and seriously wounded a co-worker during a Thursday evening workplace confrontation before another agent pulled his weapon and shot the gunman to death inside a Southern California federal building, the FBI said.

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents were shot on the seventh floor of the Glenn M. Anderson Federal Building in Long Beach, about 20 miles south of downtown Los Angeles.

The 5:54 p.m. Thursday shootings were described by the FBI’s Steven Martinez as a case of “workplace violence involving two federal agents in their office space.” He offered no other details about what led to the initial shooting.

But the Los Angeles Times, citing multiple law enforcement sources, reported Friday that the initial shots were fired by an agent at his supervisor during an unspecified dispute.

Mount Rainer College Student Shot & Killed

By , Published: October 26

A Howard University music student was shot and killed early Tuesday in what might have been a robbery in the Mount Rainier area of Prince George’s County, according to police and school officials.

The incident occurred just after midnight in the 4200 block of Kaywood Drive, authorities said. Mount Rainier officers dispatched to the area on a report of shots fired found 24-year-old Alonzo James Guyton lying on the sidewalk in front of an apartment building suffering from multiple gunshot wounds, according to police.

Guyton was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead just before 1 a.m., police said.

Mount Rainier Police Chief Michael E. Scott said Guyton had been shot in the back and head. He said officers on the scene initially thought the incident was a “robbery gone bad” because when they found Guyton, he was not carrying a wallet. Guyton’s cellphone was found, however, and police have not confirmed the robbery theory, Scott said.

Scott said Prince George’s County homicide detectives investigating the case were working to determine whether Guyton had recently moved to the block where he was found or was going there to visit someone. He said Scott’s last known address was in the District.

Cpl. Mike Rodriguez, a Prince George’s police spokesman, said he had no information about suspects or a motive.

Giffords Shooting

The Giffords Shooting: Unpleasant Truth

(Let me start with a disclaimer: I say what I mean. If what I actually say offends you–and for a lot of people, it will–then you probably need offending. But don’t bother being offended at things I didn’t say, but which you imagine I meant. If I meant it, I would have said it. – Larken Rose)

The national news is full of reports of the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords. Considering how inconsistent the reports have been, even from the beginning, I don’t know what happened, or why. Maybe I never will. Whether the guy was simply a looney, whether there was some political motive, whether it was another false flag propaganda stunt (which wouldn’t surprise me a bit), I could only guess. And since my guess would be essentially worthless, at least right now, I won’t bother.

Instead, I want to quickly address several things about the way in which the story has been reported in the media. Be warned, when there has been bloodshed and death, people get emotional, and bluntly discussing literal realities upsets people. Tyrants specialize in manipulating emotions, in order to defeat reason and understanding. That’s why stating the truth is most important when people don’t want to hear it. So here goes.

The death of Mrs. Gifford was not a huge national tragedy, any more than the hundreds of other murders that happened the same day. Mrs. Gifford was not a great public servant. In fact, she was not a public servant at all. She was not serving you, or me, or anyone else, other than the elite ruling class. She did not “represent” the people. She was a member of the parasitic American ruling class. She was not working for the people.

What she did, along with her fellow political parasites, was use the threat of violence to subjugate, control and extort the general public. Like every other member of Congress, she produced nothing of value, neither product nor service. As a “legislator,” her entire job consisted of coming up with new ways to use the coercion of “law” to forcibly control you and me, and use the products of our efforts to serve the agenda of the parasite class.

Did she mean well? How should I know? And frankly, I don’t particularly care. As far as I can tell, Hitler meant well, and so did many of the thugs who carried out his megalomaniacal ideas. Did that make him good? Did that make it a “national tragedy” when he died? No. The tragedy was that a human being could ever imagine that forcibly subjugating the human race is the way to make a better society. Whatever her intentions, it was a bigger tragedy that Mrs. Gifford ever became a member of the professional criminal class, than it was that she was shot. (If I ever suddenly decide to embrace the love of dominion, and seek to use brute force to dominate and subjugate innocent people, I hope someone does me the favor of shooting me.)

Notwithstanding the fact that “legal” thuggery, extortion, aggression and violence is hidden under many layers of euphemisms, rhetoric and propaganda, the blunt truth is that Gabrielle Giffords is (or was) a professional bully and parasite. What “law-makers” do is enact “laws.” And “laws” are neither suggestions nor requests. They are commands, backed by threats of violence. Obama’s commie-care, for example, for all the fluff and B.S. that was used to promote it, was–like all “laws”–a threat of violence. However complicated and convoluted it was, essentially what it did was tell doctors, patients, insurance companies, and others, “You must do this, and you may not do that,” and prescribed forceful retaliation against any who were caught disobeying. That’s what every “law” is. (As a mental exercise, trying making up a “law” yourself that is not a threat of violence. You will fail.)

Politicians do not “serve” the public, or “represent” the public; they forcibly dominate, control, and extort the public. Despite all the patently inaccurate rhetoric about “public servants,” “representative government,” and other statist dogma (which will be the subject of upcoming videos), the relationship of every “government” to its subjects is a master-slave relationship. They tell you what to do, and they take your money, and if you resist, they send men with guns to hurt you. To think they’re doing that for your benefit is insane.

With that in mind, perhaps the most telling statement in all the reports of the incident were the comments of another parasitic tyrant, John Boehner (R), who said that “[a]cts and threats of violence against public officials have no place in our society.” Wow. The hypocrisy is astounding. Everything–absolutely everything–that Boehner, Giffords, and every other member of the parasitic ruling class do, constitutes “threats of violence,” often against you. (Try disobeying one of their “laws,” if you don’t believe me.) Yet they become outraged if one of their victims does to them what they do to millions of people on a daily basis.

(Incidentally, Boehner also said, “An attack on one who serves is an attack on all who serve.” That one sentence all by itself, with the lies it implies and the psychosis it exhibits, deserves its own article.)

Am I suggesting that people go out and shoot the politicians? No. Even if it were justified, it wouldn’t result in freedom. If anything, it would only serve as an excuse for authoritarian control freaks to increase their power, and further infringe on the liberty of others. (You can already see the push towards this in the aftermath of the shooting of Giffords.) As much as I bash the god-complex parasites who infest DC, the individual politicians are not the real problem. The real problem is that the victims of tyranny continue to imagine it to be legitimate, when thuggery and aggression are cloaked in pseudo-religious political rituals. As long as the people bow down at the altar of “government,” getting rid of one parasite–by vote or by bullet–will accomplish nothing, as a new parasite will step right in. On the other hand, when the people outgrow their superstitious addiction to “authority”-worship, no election or revolution will be needed to remove the parasite class. “Government” exists only because the people imagine that it exists. When the people rid themselves of their statist indoctrination, and see reality for what it is, the parasite class will be ignored out of existence.

On that note, I can’t resist mentioning the release of “The Most Dangerous Superstition.” If you think that the people in power are the real problem, and that another election, or even a revolution, is the solution, I implore you to read the book. You might find that your own beliefs and assumptions, and your own perceptions and actions, are feeding the beast that you fear, the beast that is eating you.

Congresswoman Shot In Arizona

Published by:

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was reported to be in critical condition after the shooting in a Safeway supermarket parking lot.

A doctor at the University Medical Center in Tucson said Giffords had come out of surgery and that he was “very optimistic” the congresswoman would recover.

There had been conflicting reports on Giffords’s condition. Some media outlets had reported her death.

Eighteen people were shot during the attack, and six are dead, a police spokesman said Saturday afternoon. The injured victims were being treated at four Tucson-area hospitals.

According to reports, Giffords was shot in the head at point-blank range by a lone gunman who ran toward her and began firing.

There were unconfirmed reports that bystanders had subdued the gunman.

Police said a suspect was in custody. CNN reported the suspect was a white male in his early 20s.

News reports said Giffords was holding a “Congress on Your Corner” event at the supermarket.

Witnesses described indiscriminate shooting.

One witness said she heard 15 shots, according to Fox News.
A ‘Blue Dog’ Democrat

Giffords, 40, is in her third term in the House representing the 8th Congressional District in the southeastern corner of the state. She was a member of the conservative Blue Dog Democratic caucus.

She was re-elected in a close election in November, defeating Tea Party–backed Republican challenger Jesse Kelly by fewer than 4,200 votes.

A former state legislator and small-business owner, Giffords is married to former Space Shuttle commander Mark Kelly.

When Democrats controlled the House, Giffords was chairwoman of the Space and Aeronautics Subcommittee of the Science and Technology Committee.
Witness describes shooting

A witness to the shooting that critically wounded U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and 11 others describes the scene to Fox News.

Last spring, Giffords was one of several Democrats who reported vandalism of their offices as the House considered and ultimately passed landmark health-care legislation. Giffords said the door of her Tucson office had been shattered by a pellet gun.

In a brief statement Saturday, Speaker of the House John Boehner, the Ohio Republican, said he was “horrified by the senseless attack.”

“Acts and threats of violence against public officials have no place in our society,” Boehner said.

President Barack Obama called the shooting “an unspeakable tragedy.”

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi of California called Saturday “a very sad day for our country.”

Respected Member of the Community Shot Over a Speed Bump

Published by:

Stephen A. Carr worked aggressively, but patiently, to try to slow down the cars that flew past his house in the Burke area of Fairfax County. Most of his neighbors applauded his help, and earlier this year a speed hump was installed in front of his house.

But David A. Patton evidently was not a fan. In June, court and police records show, Patton angrily confronted Carr about the speed hump outside Carr’s house. Patton was charged with misdemeanor assault. His trial was set for Thursday.

On Sunday night, police say, Patton went further. Witnesses told police he burst into Carr’s house, tied up Carr and his girlfriend and, when Carr struggled, fatally shot him in the head, court records allege.

Patton, 44, was arrested a short time later in Carr’s back yard and charged with murder.

Neighbors said Carr, 48, was single, well-known and liked in the Orange Hunt neighborhood, just off Sydenstricker Road. He worked…

You really need to see this article. This highly respected, best-neighbor-in-the-world, kind of guy gets shot because he headed up a group in the neighborhood to get a speed bump put in on the street to slow down increasing traffic in the area. The assailant apparently assaulted him at an earlier date and then his neighbors watch out the window while this guy ties up him and his girlfriend, and then shoots the guy in the head? Where are all the men in the world? On the phone calling the cops I bet, instead of grabbing everyone looking out their window at the spectacle and rushing this guy before he could shoot one of them… ARE YOU GETTING ANGRY YET?
