Texas Father Who Killed Daughter’s Pedophile Rapist Is Facing Homicide Charges

18 June, 2012

Not a court in the world will convict this admirably heroic father; but that won’t stop the legal system from wasting time and money while pursuing charges against him:

Texas Father’s Killing of Child Molester Ruled Homicide
by William Bigelow – Breitbart’s BigGovernment

The Shiner, Texas case where a young father beat the molester of his five-year-old daughter has now been ruled a homicide.  The dead man has now been identified as Jesus Mora Flores, 47, of Gonzales, Texas, an alleged acquaintance of the father who had been hired to care for the horses at the father’s barn.

The evidence, according to an attorney’s statement, states that the 23-year-old father was working on a horse and was barbecuing shortly before 3:43 p.m. on the day of the incident when someone alerted him that his daughter had been abducted. The father heard the girl scream, ran toward the sound, and found Flores on top of his child. The father yanked Flores off his daughter and started beating him in the head and neck.

The sheriff’s statement revealed that someone called 911, and paramedics arriving found Flores’ body lying in a pasture near the barn with his underwear down. They performed CPR, but Flores was pronounced dead at the scene by a justice of the peace at 4:50 p.m.

The Travis County medical examiner’s office found that Flores died from “blunt force head and neck injury,” and the death was ruled a homicide.

The Texas Rangers investigating the incident performed a physical exam on the young girl as well as interviewing her. Lavaca County Sheriff Micah Harmon said the evidence he had gathered and witnesses’ statements matched the father’s account of the incident. He said the father was “distraught” and “very remorseful.”  He also stated that the father said he did not intend to kill Flores.

George Zimmerman’s Wife Arrested for Perjury

12 June, 2012

Still think Mr. Zimmerman is going to get a fair trial?  Think again:

Shellie Zimmerman, wife of Trayvon Martin killer, arrested on perjury charge
By NBC‘s Jamie Novogrod

Shellie Zimmerman, wife of George Zimmerman, who killed Trayvon Martin, was arrested Tuesday on one count of perjury, the Seminole County, Fla., Sheriff’s Department said.

Deputies arrested Shellie Zimmerman, 25,  about 3:30 p.m. ET, after they were advised by the office of State Attorney Angela Corey that a warrant had been issued.

She was booked into John E. Polk Correctional Facility and released on $1,000 bond, officials said.

The order issued Tuesday by Assistant State Attorney John Guy charged Shellie Zimmerman with knowingly making false statements during the April hearing.

Bob Owens Admits He Got Played by the Lame Stream Media in the Martin-Zimmerman Incident

11 April, 2012

Yeah, I know; another Martin-Zimmerman post. 

However, I feel that this whole affair is a case study in how Leftist politicians, along with their cohorts in the Lame Stream Media, manipulate public opinion in an effort to push their own agendas.  Sadly, it isn’t until much later—long after the damage is done—that the American public finally begins to wake up to the fact that they’ve been hornswoggled by a bunch of Lefturd muckraking flimflammers.

Kinda’ reminds me of an Old West lynching mob:

H/T – TGUSA for being the first to reference “The Ox-Bow Incident” in conjunction with the Martin-Zimmerman Incident.

Why I Called George Zimmerman a Murderer, and Why I Was Wrong
I won’t get fooled by media again.
by Bob Owens – April 11, 2012 – PJM

On March 17, I thought I had it all figured out. I wrote a post on my blog in which I pronounced America’s most famous neighborhood watch captain guilty:

Martin, a wispy 17-year-old-black teen, was walking to the home he was staying in after going to the convenience store for a bag of candy and a Coke. George Zimmerman, a self-appointed neighborhood watch captain, stalked Martin from his car, and then well, you can read the rest.

It seems self-evident from the 911 tapes that he was psyching himself up to justify a confrontation. Zimmerman initiated the confrontation by leaving his vehicle. He then asks us to believe — absent any living witness to conflict with him — that a teen some 100 lbs. lighter than him started a fight, and that Zimmerman “had” to shoot the kid in self-defense. Does anyone but Zimmerman’s father — and an apparently incompetent Sanford PD — buy Zimmerman’s claim this was a justifiable case of self-defense?

I’ll admit that I do not know the idiosyncrasies of Florida law, but if an armed person initiates a conflict, then uses that conflict as an excuse to draw his weapon and kill the person he confronted, that sounds a lot like murder in my book. No wonder Martin’s parents are furious that the Sanford PD hasn’t filed charges against Zimmerman.

In light of the just released 911 tapes, which suggest Martin plead for his life before Zimmerman fired a second, killing shot, both Zimmerman and the Sanford PD better prepare for very expensive civil rights cases, and hope that a vigilante doesn’t act to correct a perceived injustice as some have already threatened.

How naive that post now seems. The narrative created by the media at that time was one of an innocent life taken for no reason at all, by a much older, heavier, and racist man itching for a confrontation.

That was before we found out there was only one gunshot and no coup de grâce. That was before we found out that George Zimmerman had not deluged the local police with 46 paranoid 911 calls in one year, but 46 calls over a period of eight years, which isn’t unreasonable for a community watch volunteer. The media had either lied about how often he called, or purposefully compressed the timeline.

That was before we learned that Zimmerman didn’t know Martin’s race when he made the call, and that race didn’t play a roll in any of the 911 calls the local police had on file.

That was before we discovered that George Zimmerman wasn’t the 240-plus pound bruiser in the five-year-old picture the media used as much as possible, but was listed at a much smaller 170 pounds by none other than the New York Times. That’s a nominal 20 pounds heavier than a teen that stood four inches over him.

That was before we found out that two eyewitnesses placed Martin on top of Zimmerman as the aggressor, and that at least one of them claims it was Zimmerman crying for help.

That was before ABC News attempted to claim police surveillance video disproved Zimmerman’s claim of being injured in what may have been a purposeful deception. (more…)

Biden Uses Trayvon vs. Zimmerman Incident to Push Gun Control

31 March, 2012

You just knew it was coming.  The Left never lets a manufactured crisis go to waste, and the Trayvon/Zimmerman incident is no exception.

If you ask me, though, the Trayvon/Zimmerman incident is a shining example of why citizens should be allowed to carry guns. 

After all, if some punk were smashing your brains into the sidewalk, wouldn’t you like to have the option of using a gun to make him stop? 

Also, something that I haven’t noticed anyone else picking up on is that Zimmerman showed extreme self-control in shooting Trayvon.  He could have unloaded his clip into Trayvon, yet he fired only once.  You know what that tells me?  That tells me there was no malice in Zimmerman’s actions and he was merely using the gun to stop Trayvon from beating him up and did not intend to kill him.  If it had been me, I would have unloaded my clip into the little puke:

Biden: Trayvon case could spur gun laws debate
By Chad Sinclair

(CBS News) Vice President Joe Biden said Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” gun laws will be a topic of debate in light of the controversy surrounding the shooting of Trayvon Martin.

“It’s important that people be put in a position where their Second Amendment rights are protected, but that they also don’t, as a consequence of the laws, unintendedly put themselves in harm’s way,” Biden told anchor Bob Schieffer in an interview to air on “Face the Nation” on Sunday.

Florida’s gun laws allow people to shoot in self-defense if they feel threatened. Mr. Biden, who was chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee for eight years, said that the Martin case underscores the need to ensure public safety in accordance with current gun laws.

“The idea that there’s this overwhelming additional security in the ownership and carrying concealed and deadly weapons… I think it’s the premise, not the constitutional right, but the premise that it makes people safer is one that I’m not so sure of,” Biden said.

What a moron!

Americans buy record numbers of guns for Christmas

2 January, 2012


I own no firearms (at least the registered variety) those things are dangerous. I stopped that nonsense years ago. Every weapon that could ever be traced back to me by old paper records has been sold, traded or given away. I own zero firearms, if you do not believe me then check the records, let the guvment find out where they went. Did I mention that I recently picked up a sweet little firearm like object capable of sending projectiles at high velocity? You have to love Christmas.

Now I am not advocating any of you to break any laws. I will simply remind you all that the biggest threat to your firearms might not be a sixteen year old thief crawling in your back window. If that is really what you are afraid of then by all means register one firearm just to be on the safe side should you feel the need to shoot a crack addicted teenager crawling through your window. Some of us have additional concerns past the punk kid.

By Nick Allen, Jan 3, year zero, the Telegraph
According to the FBI, over 1.5 million background checks on customers were requested by gun dealers to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System in December. Nearly 500,000 of those were in the six days before Christmas.
-God bless all law abiding Americans.

It was the highest number ever in a single month, surpassing the previous record set in November.

On Dec 23 alone there were 102,222 background checks, making it the second busiest single day for buying guns in history.
-I feel liberals sweating

The actual number of guns bought may have been even higher if individual customers took home more than one each.
-Not likely, guns are expensive. Most bought only one.

Explanations for America’s surge in gun buying include that it is a response to the stalled economy with people fearing crime waves. Another theory is that buyers are rushing to gun shops because they believe tighter firearms laws will be introduced in the future.
-That would be my biggest concern if I owned any.

The National Rifle Association said people were concerned about self defence because police officer numbers were declining.
-I asked a few of my friends in the LEO community what they would do if ordered to seize weapons and all to a person said “quit” now do you feel safe? (more…)

Florida: 67-Year-Old Woman Runs Off Intruder by Shooting at Him

The good thing about her missing the intruder is that she is now inspired to head on down to the shooting range and do a little more practicing:

Jacksonville Woman Protects Home By Shooting at Burglar
Dec 21, 2011 – First Coast News

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Years ago, Betty Magnusson’s son took her to a gun show and bought her a gun.

That .38 revolver was tucked away in her bedroom and never used, said Magnusson.

That is, until around 9:30 Sunday night.

“I knew as soon as it happened, something was wrong,” said Magnusson.

Asleep in bed, the 67-year-old heard a crash in her living room in her home on the Westside.

“I just grabbed the gun and started walking out and said who is it. And that’s when I saw the guy standing right here in the middle of the living room,” said Magnusson. “I’m going, ‘you have got some nerve’. And he had this hoodie on.”

She said the man stood by her Christmas tree, staring at the floor, but there were no presents under the tree. He never said a word, said Magnusson, and neither did she.

She didn’t really have much to say anyway. “They always told me to cock it first. I didn’t cock that thing or nothing. I just pulled the trigger. It was easy as pie,” she said.

She missed him and hit her window, but the robber took off. She said she wasn’t shaking at all during the incident; in fact, she said she was “cool, calm.”

[…]

Magnusson plans to head to a range to practice her aim, and she’s got a little reminder she’s keeping so she stays on target: the bullet casing she used.

Florida Beauty Pageant Queen Shoots and Kills Home Invader

22 March, 2011

Proving once again, the fastest way to a man’s heart is through his chest:

Armed Beauty Queen Fatally Shoots Intruder in Florida Home Invasion

By Cristina Corbin

Published March 22, 2011 | FoxNews.com

When a burly ex-convict forced his way into a posh Florida home last week, he had no idea what awaited him — a 25-year-old beauty queen with a pink .38-caliber handgun.

Meghan Brown, a former Florida pageant queen, shot and killed 42-year-old Albert Franklin Hill during a home invasion March 12 […]

Hill barged into the home at around 3 a.m. after Brown responded to a knock at the front door, according to a police report. He allegedly grabbed the 110-pound Brown around her nose and mouth and dragged her to an upstairs bedroom.

The woman’s fiance, Robert Planthaber, said in an interview that he was quickly awakened by the altercation and ran to Brown’s side.

“I attacked him and took a severe beating to the head,” Planthaber told FoxNews.com. “But I got him off of her long enough for her to scramble to the room where she keeps her pink .38 special.”

Brown, who reigned as the 2009 Miss Tierra Verde, snatched her gun from a nearby bedroom and shot the suspect several times – hitting him in the chest, groin, thigh and back, her fiance said. Hill was pronounced dead at the scene.

[…]

Yup, getting killed by a pink gun has got to be a pretty embarrassing story to tell your buddies in the afterlife…

Albert Hill

Hill had a criminal record stretching back nearly three decades — including arrests for burglary, battery, drug possession and grand theft. He reportedly served a 13-year prison term in 1987 and was released in September after serving a fourth term behind bars.

After Numerous Delays, Self-Defense Trial of Oklahoma Pharmacist, Jay Ersland, Gets Underway

11 March, 2011

Let us hope and pray that the jury isn’t infested with a bunch of brainwashed Libtards and Lefturds:

This updates our previous coverage HERE, HERE, and HERE.

Note:  Because a video link is broken in one of our previous posts, I am including the pharmacy’s surveillance video below. However, you’ll have to sit through one of those annoying commercials to view it.  Sorry about that:

Oklahoma Pharmacist Case Tests Self-Defense Law
L.l. Woodard – via Yahoo News

When Jerome Jay Ersland, has his day in court, Oklahoma’s self-defense laws will be tested too. The 57-year-old-pharmacist was charged with first-degree murder as a result of shooting death that took place May 19, 2009.

Two teenage boys entered the Reliable Discount Pharmacy in Oklahoma City where Ersland worked, but Ersland was able to chase only one of the youths out the door of the store. The other youth, 16-year-old Antwun Parker, was shot by Ersland six times.

Oklahoma was among the first states to enact the self-defense legislation referred to as the Make My Day law. The law, named after Clint Eastwood’s character Dirty Harry, provided that Oklahoma residents had the right to defend themselves by using deadly force, if necessary, in their homes without fear of criminal or civil action.

In 2006, State Sen. Harry Coates authored legislation that extended those rights of self-defense to include persons in or on motor-operated vehicles and at businesses. That bill, known as the Stand Your Ground law, passed the Oklahoma legislature with only nine opposing votes.

At first glance, it would seem Ersland had nothing to fear from the criminal justice system when he protected himself and his female co-workers from the two robbers. But as often happens, there is more to the story.

The store’s videotape of that day shows that Ersland first shot Parker in the head. Parker went to the floor. After Ersland chased the younger of the two youths out of the pharmacy’s door, he came back into the store and picked up another gun. With that gun the pharmacist shot Parker five additional times, this time in the abdomen.

The original autopsy was reported to show that Parker did not die from the head wound but from the wounds to his abdomen. It was after the autopsy was completed that Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater brought the charges of first-degree murder against Ersland.

But additional pathologists have also weighed in on the cause of Parker’s death; not all of them agree with the original autopsy report that the abdominal wounds caused the youth’s death.

Rep. Randy Terrill, a strong proponent of Oklahoma’s self-defense legislation has voiced his disapproval of the criminal charges brought against Ersland.

Boxer to Introduce “Common-Sense” Firearms Act

24 January, 2011

Yup, nothing like a progressive commie like Babs flagrantly plagiarizing the title of Thomas Paine’s inspirational pamphlet, “Common Sense,” and splicing it directly into the title of her piece of crap gun control legislation.

First of all, I highly doubt Babs has even read Paine’s “Common Sense.”  Well…  Maybe she has and that is what has Babs so worried.  After all, Thomas Paine once famously said, “Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property… Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.”  And, we all know that Babs is yet another progressive-commie invader plundering America’s property.

Secondly, considering that this current Congress has voted into effect a rule of order in which one must cite appropriate authorization from the U.S. Constitution when introducing legislation, I am quite curious as to what part of “shall not be infringed” she will choose to hang her guns upon.

Thirdly, John Boehner has an A rating from the NRA.  I highly doubt he will jeopardize that particular rating just because Barbara Boxer is afraid of guns.  Good luck getting your anti-gun bill out of committee, Babs!  Hehehehe.

And, finally, this just goes to show that commies like Babs will use any excuse, any “crisis,” anything they can dream of in order to deprive the public’s rightful access to guns.  Why?  Because they know, and we all know—whether instinctive or not—that guns and the “militia,” right now, are the only things keeping America from tumbling headlong into a full-blown commie-progressive dictatorship:

Boxer to Introduce Common-Sense Concealed Firearms Act of 2011

Press Release from Barbara Boxer:

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) today announced that […] she will introduce the Common-Sense Concealed Firearms Act of 2011, which would require all states that allow residents to carry concealed weapons in public to have minimum standards for granting permits.

Senator Boxer said, “The tragic events in Tucson earlier this month are a reminder of why we need common-sense gun laws. This measure will establish reasonable permitting standards for Americans who wish to carry concealed firearms. According to a recent poll, more than 60 percent of respondents believe there should be a reasonable permitting process for those who wish to carry concealed firearms.”

Senator Boxer’s legislation would require all states that allow residents to carry concealed weapons to establish permitting processes that would include meaningful consultation with local law enforcement authorities to determine whether the permit applicant is worthy of the public trust and has shown good cause to carry a concealed firearm.

Currently, two states do not permit residents to carry concealed firearms, while three states, including Arizona, allow residents to carry concealed firearms in public without a permit. The other 45 states require residents to obtain permits to carry concealed firearms, but the majority of these states would not meet the standard set in this bill.

Senator Boxer plans to introduce the legislation when the Senate reconvenes next week.

“Progressive” Senators to Pass START Treaty

22 December, 2010

Yup.  Months ago, I warned you all about a lame duck session gone wild.  Well, here it is.

The START treaty is yet another ploy by the Obama administration to reduce America’s strength and offer her up on the chopping block for Obama’s communist buddies.

U.S. Set to Approve Russia Nuclear Arms Pact
Published December 22, 2010 | FoxNews.com

The U.S. Senate was poised to approve a nuclear arms pact with Russia on Wednesday in what would be the latest in a string of legislative victories for President Obama after his party was soundly beaten in the midterm elections last month.

The Senate voted 67-28 to advance the legislation on Tuesday, easily exceeding the 60 votes required. Earlier, Republicans senators expressed outrage as Obama secured enough votes for ratification.

At least 10 Republicans publicly announced their support for the accord, including Tennessee Sen. Lamar Alexander, the No. 3 Republican in the Senate, putting it on a virtual glidepath to ratification by Wednesday night.

The Constitution requires two-thirds of those voting in the Senate to ratify the pact. Democrats needed at least nine Republican votes.

At a GOP news conference, Republicans who oppose the treaty warned of the consequences.

“Well this is a joke,” said Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., adding that he believes the administration gave up too much to the Russians to negotiate the treaty.

“When you want zero nukes in the world, you’re not an effective negotiator,” he said.

Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., said it’s clear the administration is checking the box on many issues without any substance behind the box.

“We join millions of Americans who are outraged,” he said, adding that it is being crammed under the cover of Christmas.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., the No. 2 Republican in the Senate, also oppose the START agreement.
