Pro-Life Student Sucker Punched Outside Planned Parenthood Clinic

A 15-year-old pro-life student was allegedly assaulted outside a Planned Parenthood clinic while she and her group were providing support and resources about alternatives to abortion to women entering the building. On Saturday morning, several Students for Life of America (SFLA) members of Liberty University were “sidewalk counseling” outside of the Planned Parenthood facility in Roanoke, Virginia. According to SFLA, the students gather weekly outside of the clinic on Saturdays, the day that location performs abortions, praying for women who enter the building and offering them alternative solutions to abortion. The students, SFLA reports, were standing away from the entrance to the building. Witnesses report that a woman confronted the SFLA leaders and began threatening them, saying she would beat them up and “f**k them up.” “This is our property,” the SFLA student allegedly said to the woman, according to the video, referring to the public property on which the students were standing. “Yeah, and it’s my property, too,” the woman responded. According to the report, the as yet unidentified woman first stole a sign from one of the SFLA leaders that read, “All people are made in the image of God.” When that occurred, the students began to record the exchange with the woman, who walked away at first, but then returned and attempted to take another sign. The woman then allegedly punched a 15-year-old SFLA high school fellow in the face, causing her to stumble and fall to the ground. The other students called the police and the student who was allegedly struck was taken to a hospital. “This act of violence against a group of peaceful pro-life students who were outside a Planned Parenthood facility offering love and support to pregnant women serves as a sad reflection on the state of debate today,” said SFLA president Kristan Hawkins. “It’s horrific that a minor expressing love for pregnant women was targeted for violence. Sadly, this is not an isolated incident.”

Indeed..  This happens far more than the media will report.  This girl had every right to express her view on this issue on public land/property, without getting sucker-punched like that.  To see the video of the assault, click on the text above.  Hopefully that lady is identified, arrested, and charged.  Awful…

Florida cop taunts would-be killer with lube on way to prison: ‘You are going to need a lot of this’

A police officer taunted the Jacksonville man who shot him multiple times last year by taking out a tube of K-Y Jelly personal lubricant in court Wednesday and saying, “You are going to need a lot of this,” local reports said. Kevin Rojas, then 19, shot the undercover police officer three times during a 2016 traffic stop, including once in the face, the Florida Times-Union reported. The critically-wounded officer, who was taking his son to school during the incident, returned fire but did not hit Rojas. His son was not injured. Local reports did not identify the undercover officer. In October, Rojas was found guilty of numerous felonies, including attempted first-degree murder, grand theft auto, attempted manslaughter, two counts of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer. He was sentenced to life imprisonment on Wednesday. The wounded officer, who formerly served in the Army, began by calling Rojas a coward at the sentencing hearing, the Florida Times-Union reported. “I will take those bullets instead of a fellow officer and an innocent bystander,” the officer said, according to the Times-Union. “When I brought the fight back to you, you ran like a coward.” The officer then produced a tube of K-Y Jelly and told Rojas he would “need a lot” of it in prison, according to local reports. When questioned by a judge in a 30-minute hearing about the stunt, the officer refused to comment, the Times-Union reported. The officer’s supervisors were aware of the incident and will address it, according to local reports.

Let’s hope those sups give the good officer a medal!  The man took 3 bullets, including one in the face!!  His little “stunt” was funny and the judge should have laughed or shook his head and let it go; NOT berate the poor officer for such a little thing.  Glad this piece of garbage Kevin Rojas was given life in prison.

WATCH: Off-Duty Officer with Baby in His Arms Shoots, Kills Two Robbers

An off-duty officer near São Paulo, Brazil, shot and killed two would-be robbers while holding his baby in his arms. The officer, Sergeant Rafael Souza, and his wife were inside a pharmacy to get medicine for their sick baby when the incident occurred. The Independent reports that 24-year-old Jefferson Alves allegedly pointed his pistol at Souza, at which time Souza drew his own gun and shot Alves “at close range.” Souza can then be seen moving in and out of the video searching for the second suspect, 22-year-old Italo Creato. Souza shoots Creato as well. In the middle of the video Souza’s wife can be seen crouching between aisles with her hands over her ears. Near the end of the video Souza’s wife can be seen stretching out her arms toward her husband, asking to take the baby. Souza passed the baby to his wife then returned to checking aisles to be sure there were no more suspects. Suspects Alves and Creato were both pronounced dead at the scene.

Awesome!!  To see the video of this, click on the text above.  Kudos to Sgt. Souza!!

Mexican citizen executed in Texas for decades-old killing vows he ‘will be back for justice’

The Mexican citizen executed Wednesday night for killing his 16-year-old cousin wrote in a handwritten statement that he will be back for justice, “You can count on that!” Ruben Ramirez Cardenas, 47, was given a lethal injection after several federal court appeals failed to halt his punishment for the February 1997 killing of Mayra Laguna, 16. She was abducted from her family’s apartment and beaten to death. Asked by the warden to make a final statement, he replied, “No, sir.” As the lethal dose of pentobarbital began, he took a couple of breaths and then began snoring. After less than a minute, all movement stopped. Twenty-one minutes later, at 10:26 p.m. CST, he was pronounced dead, making him the seventh convicted killer put to death this year in Texas, which carries out capital punishment more than any other state. In a handwritten statement released afterward, Cardenas thanked his family, attorneys and the Mexican consulate for their help. His punishment was delayed for about four hours as last-ditch appeals for the former security guard focused primarily on efforts to have trial evidence undergo new DNA testing. In a filing to the U.S. Supreme Court hours before his execution, lawyers argued Texas was violating Cardenas’ due process rights and a state statute that covers forensic testing. They asked the justices to halt the execution for a court review. They also asked the justices for more time to appeal a lower court’s rejection of a federal civil rights lawsuit in which they claimed his due process and civil rights were being violated because Texas officials wouldn’t release evidence so it can undergo new DNA testing. Attorneys for the state said the lawsuit was improper and that state courts already refused the DNA request because Cardenas could not show that more advanced tests would exonerate him. DNA results in evidence at Cardenas’ trial were not false, state attorneys said. The high court, without comment, rejected both appeals. Earlier this week, the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals, the state’s highest criminal court, rejected a similar appeal seeking DNA tests. Cardenas’ attorneys argued the new testing would be better than the now-obsolete testing that left “persistent doubts about his guilt and the integrity of his conviction.” Laguna was snatched from a bedroom she shared with a younger sister at her family’s public housing apartment in McAllen in South Texas. In a confession to police, Cardenas said he and a friend drove around with the high school student in his mother’s car. He said he had sex with the teen and then punched her as she fought him after he unbound her arms to let her go. “I didn’t plan on doing this, but I was high on cocaine,” he told authorities. He said after he hit the teen in the neck, she began coughing up blood and having difficulty breathing. After trying unsuccessfully to revive her, he said he tied her up “and rolled her down a canal bank.” Her body was found in a canal near a lake in the Rio Grande Valley in far South Texas. It’s what happened next that has Mexican officials and human rights groups arguing he shouldn’t be put to death. Cardenas’ defense team, funded by the Mexican government, claims the United States violated an international treaty by denying Cardenas the opportunity to speak to his country’s consulate after his arrest. “It’s a significant treaty violation,” Gregory Kuykendall, an Arizona attorney authorized to speak on behalf of Mexico, told the Houston Chronicle. If Texas officials execute Cardenas, they would be in apparent violation of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations. In 2004, the U.N.’s international court in the Hague ruled that the U.S. must review cases similar to Cardenas’. Then-President George W. Bush told states to comply but the Supreme Court overruled him and said it was up to Congress – not the president – to order states to obey. Since then, Congress has dragged its feet.

Regardless…  This piece of garbage committed rape and murder, and Texas did what it does to murderers; puts them down.

French: In Texas, a Good Guy with a Gun Stopped a Bad Guy with a Gun, But No One Truly Has Answers

With the automatic caveat that early reports are often wrong, it appears that the man who attacked the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, was a dishonorably discharged veteran of the United States Air Force. If this report is accurate, he wasn’t permitted to legally own a firearm. As the ATF explains, the Gun Control Act prohibits any person who’s been “discharged from the Armed Forces under dishonorable conditions” from shipping, transporting, receiving, or possessing a firearm or ammunition. The shooter apparently cared as much about the Gun Control Act as he cared for laws prohibiting murder. While the Texas shooter was obviously able to fire on the church members long enough to commit one of the worst mass murders in American history, he appears to have been stopped by a good guy with a gun — a civilian who armed himself and engaged the shooter: According to the law-enforcement briefing, a resident engaged the shooter with his own gun, the shooter then dropped his rifle and tried to escape by car. He died in the car, but it was not clear (as of the time of this post) whether he died after being shot by the resident or whether he killed himself. Already Twitter is erupting in furious arguments over gun control, concealed carry, and various pie-in-the-sky “solutions” to the problem of mass murder. The calls to “do something” will ring out once again, and if the past is any guide, the various gun-control proposals that will be put forward with maximum rage and sanctimony wouldn’t have stopped this — or any other — recent mass killing. At the same time, however, while I’m extraordinarily grateful for the courage of the good guys with guns who’ve ultimately put a stop to multiple mass shootings — including this dreadful massacre — it’s not at all clear to me that good guys with guns present the answer to our troubles. They help, certainly, but they are not the cure for this national disease. If recent history teaches us anything, it’s that there is no reliable way to stop a man determined to commit mass murder. He can use guns, cars, trucks, fertilizer, or boxcutters to exact a terrible toll in human life. Though there is no single answer, there is still effort. Individually, that means learning to how to use a weapon, carrying it, and remaining prepared to defend yourself and the people around you. Individually, that means if you see something, you say something. If a person is acting erratically or radicalizing in dangerous ways, then contact local law enforcement. Collectively, it’s difficult to identify effective prophylactic public policies. We have better answers for jihadists and other terrorists than we do for vengeful and evil men who lash out based on purely individual slights, real or imagined. In the meantime, we once again mourn the dead, express thanks for the brave, and do our best to rationally seek answers in a nation beset by grief, anger, and division. (Update: The Daily Beast is reporting that the shooter received a bad-conduct discharge — not a dishonorable discharge — after a domestic-violence conviction. The domestic-violence conviction would have also barred the shooter from possessing a firearm.)

Exactly..  Another “gun law” would not have prevented this horrible event in Texas.  The suspect was already committing a felony simply possessing the weapon he had.  And, unfortunately, you cannot stop every evil act.  That is simply an uncomfortable fact/reality….whether it’s using a rented truck to run over people on a sidewalk in New York, or illegally getting a hold of a firearm and using it to commit murder.  Thanks to attorney, and Army Reserve officer (Major), David French for sharing his perspective.  David was awarded the Bronze Star for his service in Iraq.

Hate Crime: Black male thug splashes unknown liquid in white female 13-year old’s face, calls her “white ‘b__ch”

A man splashed an unknown liquid in a girl’s face and called her a “white b–ch” as she was getting off a school bus in Queens, officials said. The 13-year-old had just stepped off the bus near the corner of Lefferts Boulevard and 101st Avenue in Richmond Hill when the man accosted her around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, police said. “This is for you, white b–ch,” he shouted before throwing the substance in her face. The attacker then fled north toward 97th Avenue, but not before the victim managed to snap a photo of him with her cellphone. The child was taken to Jamaica Hospital for eye irritation. Police said she was not seriously injured and they are still working to figure out what the substance was. The suspect is approximately 30 years old, bald and was wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt with a red shirt underneath, police said.

Just fathom if a white male had done this to a young black girl getting off the bus..  THAT story would be EVERYWHERE, and we all know it.  There would be calls for protests, and the usual race hustlers would be marching and “demanding justice.”  Sadly, this doesn’t fit the racial template, and narrative, of the dominantly liberal mainstream media.  So, it’s getting ZERO air time there.  Typical liberal media hypocrisy.  Anyway, if you really want to see a blurry photo of this piece of garbage, click on the text above.  Hopefully the NYPD is able to identify and arrest this disgusting, black racist, animal.  And, we hope this poor girl makes a speedy and complete recovery from this unprovoked assault.  Awful..

MS-13 spreading across US as AG Sessions vows to take down gang

Attorney General Jeff Sessions this week promised to deal with the brutal street gang MS-13 in the same way that “we took Al Capone off the streets.” Amid a series of gruesome, high-profile murders across the United States, MS-13 has become a major focus of President Trump’s Justice Department. But dismantling the gang, whose numbers are estimated to be around 10,000 nationwide, is no easy task: MS-13 has infiltrated communities across the country – and throughout Central America – since its formation in 1980s Southern California. “MS-13 functions like all immigrant organized crime groups. They start by targeting their own community,” Lou Gentile, a former officer at the Organized Crime Unit of the Pennsylvania State Police and founder of investigative firm CSI, told Fox News. “MS-13 preys on their own, they exploit their own.” Click here to see some of the states and regions hardest hit by MS-13 in recent years:
