I’ve only just become aware of this report from June this year. It seems to have been ignored by the mainstream news media – probably because it had a happy ending, instead of turning into a tragedy. Duncanville police said no children were hurt when an armed man entered the facility where a summer camp… Continue reading A school shooting successfully stopped – but the mainstream media ignore it
I note this report with displeasure. Mexico’s Roman Catholic Church has suspended a controversial priest who has advised parishioners to carry guns to fight off drug cartels. Better known as “Father Pistolas,” Rev. Alfredo Gallegos is a priest in the violence-plagued western state of Michoacan who has himself sometimes carried a weapon. A circular… Continue reading Sounds like a realistic, pragmatic priest – no wonder he’s been suspended
Jeffrey Carter puts his finger on a universal truth – one that the current administration and its hangers-on don’t seem to recognize. No one is truly safe anywhere in the urban jungle these days given the way violence against people has been randomized. A lot of wealthy people I know in NYC, Chicago, and… Continue reading If it’s not safe, it doesn’t matter how nice a place may be
Clearly, the liberals and progressives who’ve embraced defunding and inhibiting the police and other emergency services didn’t think about how – or whether – they would be able to do their jobs with less funding. New York City first responders are taking longer to get to fires, medical emergencies and crimes in progress. Critics… Continue reading What do you expect, after you’ve defunded the police?
A few days ago, Murtaza Hussain of the Intercept tweeted: He’s absolutely right, of course. We saw in World War II how some of the most “civilized” nations on earth degenerated into murderous slaughter machines, killing millions on the grounds that they were “subhuman” or “degenerate”. Those states’ “civilization” was no more than skin… Continue reading True dat
An interesting tweet was sent my way by a reader. In it, Riley Stearns recounts the story of an unusual duel. Click the image below for a larger view. The story sounds almost too good to be true, but after over six centuries, I suspect we won’t be able to find out anything more. … Continue reading Good doggie!
Last week I published an article titled ‘Self-defense warning: the “knockout game”, a.k.a. “polar bear hunting”, is back‘. If you missed it, you might want to read it before you go any further with this one. Over the weekend, Phil at Bustednuckles put up a video clip of what looks like a school or… Continue reading The “knockout game”: **** around and find out
I had to laugh at this video clip. In England, traffic wardens are equipped with clamps to immobilize vehicles that park illegally. The traffic warden below had obviously had enough with scofflaws in police uniform, so . . . The thin blue line just got a bit squiggly, if you ask me! Peter
This brief report caught my eye yesterday. It encapsulates what we’ve been discussing over the past couple of weeks in articles such as these: The amoral violence and blind outrage is mind-boggling Updating and revising our approach to self-defense Just in case you weren’t listening earlier… It looks like the after-effects of crime are… Continue reading Ask Philadelphia grave-diggers about crime figures…
Regular readers will remember the so-called “knockout game” (sometimes called “polar bear hunting”) craze of the early twenty-teens. Young men, at that time usually black and often aspiring gang members undergoing initiation rituals, would randomly assault pedestrians, usually white, aiming to knock them unconscious with a single blow. Here are a few contemporary headlines.… Continue reading Self-defense warning: the “knockout game”, a.k.a. “polar bear hunting”, is back
