    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – In the past few months, multiple teens claim they were jumped and stripped of their belongings. And today, while we were interviewing one of the victims, it happened again. “I thought I was gonna die at first ’cause they were just, like, stomping on me and kicking me for like a minute,” said a Sheldon High student. He was jumped by 12 teens as he walked home from school. “It just happened all right here,” he said. A freshman at Sheldon High who didn’t want to be identified said it happened last month as he left a...

    A lawyer is arguing that the San Jose Police Department in California isn’t liable for President Donald Trump’s supporters being attacked and assaulted because they were essentially asking for it. According to CourthouseNews.com, a Ninth Circuit panel appears to be leaning toward allowing Trump supporters to move forward with their negligence claims against San Jose for failing to protect them during a far-left riot at a Trump campaign rally in 2016. “There was an angry mob at the end of one exit while police said the other exits were blocked,” said Circuit Judge William Fletcher during the Monday hearing. “That...

  • Vanity: More evidence of Deerfield, IL police state: ALL government employees exempt!

    They kept mentioning on the news that retired police officers in Deerfield, IL would be able to keep their "assault weapons", but one item that I didn't see the news pick up on was that, according to the ordinance, ANY government employee is exempt from the ordinance. So unless I can't read English properly, the bozo down at the Public Works Dept. or the Teachers Union goon can keep theirs. This needs to be pointed out big time; more evidence of government rule over us peasants. Excerpt... Sec. 15-87. Safe Storage of Assault Weapons; Exceptions. The provisions of this section,...

    When public school officials in Middleburgh, New York, called an assembly and used it to promote outrageous anti-Second Amendment propaganda demonizing American gun owners, at least one student objected. After the assembly, 17-year-old Christian Breault expressed his concerns about it to other students. In response, Breault was attacked by an indoctrinated anti-gun student who had become agitated from the propaganda pushed by the school. And when Breault defended himself from the bully, the same school officials who sought to indoctrinate the children with their agenda punished him for it. Now, the student's father wants the principal to step down. “The...

    Defensive end accused of injuring elderly paraplegic at Super Bowl LIAllegations of racism have erupted over the indictment Friday of NFL star Michael Bennett, even though he’s being prosecuted by a liberal, Soros-backed district attorney for a crime against a black victim. Progressive activists and commentators weighed in after the three-time Pro Bowl defensive end was indicted by a grand jury on a felony count of injuring a 66-year-old disabled black woman last year at Super Bowl LI, calling the charge “bogus,” “BS,” and a “set up.” Columnist Shaun King said Mr. Bennett was charged because he “touched a woman’s...

    neither muzzle velocity nor muzzle energy has anything to do with the definition of "assault weapons," which hinges on military-style features such as folding stocks, pistol grips, and barrel shrouds. And while all so-called assault weapons accept detachable magazines, many guns that accept detachabale magazines do not fall into this arbitrary category because they lack the features that offend politicians like Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), who sponsored the federal "assault weapon" ban that expired in 2004 and has been pushing a revised version since the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, last month. To give you a sense of how silly...

    Blame the ex-Police man. A song by the band’s former frontman Sting sparked a wild brawl between a Florida couple that culminated with a man chomping down on his boyfriend’s lip. Byron Haynes and his live-in beau, Yakeme Moore, were bickering inside their home in the seaside city of Bradenton Sunday, when Haynes, for some reason, flipped out when he heard the singer’s 1985 tune, “If You Love Somebody Set Them Free,” according to documents posted by The Smoking Gun.
