Re: A shooting just happened in ( *fill in the blank * )

Yup. The police were looking for a black man and shot one. Not the one they were originally looking for, but that appears to be beside the point.

Quite slow off the blocks.

Black LEO shoots alleged armed black man.

And you completely skipped Oklahoma, which appears to be truly riot worthy.

Re: A shooting just happened in ( *fill in the blank * )

It's all very sad, but I will admit that the recent New York/New Jersey events really affected me. Friends and colleagues are all OK, but I hang out in those Manhattan areas on a very regular basis due to work and other personal reasons.

I have friends and family in locations that have been hit by terrorist attacks in the past, I have lived in countries that are regularly prone to terrorist attacks and where attacks have occurred while I lived there (as in: same city, I was not personally injured), but I always tried to go about my business and hope for the best, not to go crazy.

For some reason, this time I am really, really affected. So much so that I cancelled all my NY trips for the rest of the year. Stupid I know, statistics and all that...I have no clue what was the trigger this time compared to the past, but I really freaked out.

Good. No surprise if you watch the video.


Charlotte, on the other hand, is not so clear cut yet.

The guy had a gun in a public place , had an ankle holster and refused to comply with the orders given and then started waving his arms about... what did he expect to happen.

Re: A shooting just happened in ( *fill in the blank * )

Georgensgmünd, Bavaria (south of Nuremberg)

A Reichsbürger has shot four police officers yesterday, one which died today.
Police raided the home to seize weapons.
http://www.zeit.de/gesellschaft/zeit...izist-schuesse


A Reichsbürger is some like a Sovereign Citizen or Freeman. Core of their belief is that the German Reich (2nd or 3rd) has never ended, the now existing Federal Republic of Germany is not the rightful successor, and the German country is under occupation and control of the allied forces which won over Hitler Germany.

Re: A shooting just happened in ( *fill in the blank * )

Sunday night, Bex VD
http://www.tagesanzeiger.ch/panorama...story/11360008

A 27 year old (C permit) tenant allegedly broke into a (own or other is not clear from news report) flat in his apartment house. An other tenant informed the police. Once they arrived on the scene they were attacked by the young man with a kitchen knife. The police shot the man. Ambulance was called but the man died on the scene.

As a CCP holder, I am happy to see this.

I have not seen the NRA's response yet- but I'm sure it will be underwhelming.

Should be an interesting case. The DA did not take the case to a grand jury so he's very sure he will get a conviction. I personally am not convinced that he will get a solid conviction.
