  • Are Most Mass Murderers Really White?

    americanthinker.com ^ | 10 June, 2014 | Selwyn Duke
    Aside from attacks on the Second Amendment, there is a certain theme that’s now repeated after every massacre committed by an unhinged individual: that most all mass killers are white. After the recent Elliot Rodger murders, for instance, Michael Moore said that he no longer had “anything to say” before immediately saying, “Nearly all of our mass shootings are by angry or disturbed white males.” Not to be one-upped in the inanity department by a mass of male whiteness, one Brittney Cooper at Salon wrote, “How many times must troubled young white men engage in these terroristic acts that make...

    Charles Manson Granted Parole Corcoran, California – One of the most famous killers in the American prison system will be walking free. On Tuesday Charles Manson, who is now 79 years old, was granted parole by the California Board of Parole and authorized by California Governor Jerry Brown. According to California Board of Parole Hearings Commissioner John Peck, prison overcrowding forced the prison board to re-evaluate prisoners that are elderly or those with serious illnesses. In February a panel of federal judges ordered California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) two more years to reduce chronic prison overcrowding that has cost the...

    "When Elliot Rodger's parents realized just how dangerous their disturbed son was, they made a desperate attempt to try to stop him. They received a copy of his 141-page manifesto and saw a YouTube video outlining his plans for his "Day of Retribution" on Friday night and called 911 before rushing to Santa Barbara in separate cars, a family friend tells the New York Daily News. They heard about the shooting spree while they were on their way. "They were hoping against hope," the friend says. "They are in inconceivable pain."(snip)"He had been in therapy since childhood, but turned his...

    Supporters of Vladimir Lenin flocked to Red Square on Tuesday to celebrate the 144th anniversary of the revolutionary's birthday. Support for the legacy of Bolshevik revolutionary Vladimir Lenin is on the rise, a poll published on the eve of the 144th anniversary of his birth showed. Asked what they thought about Lenin's contribution to Russian history, 38 percent of Russians said his influence had been "mostly positive." The survey, conducted by the independent Levada Center pollster and published Monday, showed a steady increase in Lenin's popularity since 2006, when only 29 percent rated his influence as mostly positive. The figure...

Lane showed up to his sentencing wearing a white T-shirt with the word "KILLER" in capital letters scrawled on it -- the same word police say he had emblazoned on his shirt the day of the shootings at Chardon High School.

    Colorado -–(Ammoland.com)- Just last week Governor Christie was a no-show at an important gun-rights rally. And with anti-gun lawmakers in Trenton ramming more gun control down the throats of law-abiding New Jersey gun owners, I’m afraid Governor Christie might cave in to their anti-gun agenda. Make no mistake, what they have in store for you will only make the problem worse. New Jersey already has some of the nation’s most anti-gun laws — second only to California. And just like other bastions of Second Amendment hatred, these laws have done virtually nothing to keep citizens safe. Gun owners already must...

    The day after “killer cop” Christopher Dorner was presumably killed following a firefight in a rural California cabin, conspiracy theories have swept Twitter asserting that the charred body found in the burned cabin did not belong to Dorner, but to an unidentified female. A Twitter hoax quickly gained traction on Wednesday, stating that a burned body found in the remains of the cabin did not belong to Christopher Dorner, but rather to an unidentified female. The hoax quickly swept Twitter under the guise of a fake screengrab from CNN. In the fake image, CNN’s news ticker was edited to read...

    Christopher Dorner, the former police officer turned alleged murderer of three has shifted the nation’s attention to the historically corrupt Los Angeles Police Department. In his publicly released manifesto, he claims the LAPD destroyed his life, ruined his relationships and military career by siding with a white officer he reported for excessive force. An internal affairs investigation concluded the claim was false and he was released, but Dorner has set out to redeem himself and retaliate against the force and its bureaucratic protectors. He claims the conspirators participating in the police department’s rotten culture, institutionalized discrimination, are fair game for...

Perdue left his Redondo Beach home and was driving through Torrance to the beach for some early morning surfing on Thursday when he was stopped. Officers guarding the home...

Al-Megrahi had only served some eight years of a life sentence, but MacAskill said he was bound by Scottish values to release him.

Back in 2005, the District Court in Christiansburg said that Cho was a danger to himself but not others. He was ordered to undergo outpatient care. The ruling came after Cho was taken to a nearby psychiatric hospital for evaluation in December 2005, after two female schoolmates said they received threatening messages from him and police and school officials became concerned that he might be suicidal. That information came to light two days after Cho, a Virginia Tech senior, killed...

    BAGHDAD, Jan 2 (Reuters) - Thousands of Sunni Arabs vented their anger on Tuesday over Saddam Hussein's execution as the Iraqi government promised an investigation into illicitly filmed footage of Shi'ite officials taunting him on the gallows. A court official said he nearly halted the hanging over the jeering, which has inflamed sectarian passions in a nation already on the brink of civil war. Data showed civilian deaths hit a new record in December and were over 12,000 in 2006. He also challenged government claims those who filmed the event were guards, saying they were senior officials. In the video,...

    Watch what this machine did to Saddam's victimsIt's safe to watch this video. But think how this must have felt to a human being. Sometimes Saddam would have them thrown in head-first, but other times -- to increase the agony -- he would have them thrown in feet-first.Saddam deserves his fate.

    A Fatwa on the Truth http://www.spectator.org/dsp_article.asp?art_id=10481 It is one of those uniquely modern Western paradoxes, to wit, that the most courageous Europeans are those forced into hiding. Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Salman Rushdie, the Danish editorial cartoonists -- all are paying the price for freely expressing their opinions and beliefs -- or lack thereof. Add to that exalted list one Robert Redeker. M. Redeker, a high school philosophy professor in suburban Toulouse, is in the bouillabaisse for a commentary he wrote last month for Le Figaro in which he accused Islam of "exalting violence," and christened the Muslim prophet Muhammad a...

Pakistan's military ruler also suggested links between bin Laden and Afghan warlord and former Afghan prime minister...

Just 24 hours after being released from prison for his part in the 2002 bombings, Bashir said becoming Muslims would give the bereaved relatives "salvation and peace". "For the Bali bomb families, those who are non-Muslims, my suggestion is just convert to Islam so they can...

    ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- Prosecutors in Zacarias Moussaoui's death penalty trial sought Tuesday to unravel his claims that he knew nothing of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, arguing that al-Qaida members are carefully scripted to lie when caught. FBI agent Michael Anticev, testifying for a second day, offered the jury a primer on al-Qaida cover stories and the organization's techniques of deception when cell members are questioned. Moussaoui's lawyers are portraying him as a pathetic loner who dreamed of becoming a terrorist but was shut out of Sept. 11 planning and considered by one al-Qaida leader a "cuckoo in the...
