    Last week, the judge who granted bail to Oscar Pistorius was in the international spotlight, presiding over dramatic hearings in a courtroom as the Olympic athlete sat in the dock charged with murdering his girlfriend. This week, the judge is in private mourning. Desmond Nair, chief magistrate of the Pretoria Magistrate's Court, confirmed Tuesday that he is related to a woman suspected of killing her two children and committing suicide on the weekend. The revelation was the latest twist in the saga of Pistorius and prominent figures linked to the case against the double-amputee athlete, who faces a charge of...
  • Steroids found at Blade Runner’s mansion Cops find bloodied cricket bat too

    BANNED steroid drugs were found in Oscar Pistorius’s house after he shot dead lover Reeva Steenkamp. Police also discovered a blood-stained cricket bat in the Blade Runner’s mansion in Pretoria, South Africa — and evidence of heavy drinking before the 3am shooting. Cops are now probing a theory that Pistorius may have blasted Reeva in an explosion of fury caused by the performance-boosting steroids. They are investigating whether murder suspect Pistorius was in the grip of “roid rage” — a side-effect of high doses of the outlawed drugs. Officers who searched the 26-year-old’s home after lover Reeva was killed in...

    Shortly after her move from New Hampshire to Newtown in 1998, Nancy Lanza had good news about her troubled son. "Adam is doing well here, and seems to be enjoying the new school," Lanza wrote to a friend back in Kingston, N.H., in a Feb. 9, 1999, email. But Adam, 6, then diagnosed with a condition that made it difficult for him to manage and respond to sights, touch and smell, eventually struggled in the first grade at his new school — Sandy Hook Elementary. His mother would respond, touching off a 10-year educational shuffle with moves in and out...
  • Disgusting Leftist Mark Lamont Hill Compares Cop Killer to a 'Super Hero'

    Nothing really stuns me anymore about the Left and their lunacy. That was until this week when soulless Columbia professor Mark Lamont Hill appeared on CNN and got giddy about cop killer Chris Dorner. Hill said Dorner’s murderous revenge spree was “exciting,” and was like Jamie Foxx’s character in Tarantino’s latest flick, D’jango Unchained. Hill doubled down on his stupidity during the same interview by stating Chris’ homicidal orgy was akin to the exploits of a “super hero.” I was speechless when I heard such vomit roll off that quack’s tongue. In contrast to numb nuts, Dorner's mother, Nancy Dorner,...
  • Gun Murders Shot Up 25% After Missouri Repealed Universal Background Check Law(barf alert)

    Universal background checks before gun purchases can have an enormous impact on reducing firearm-related deaths, according to testimony presented before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee this week. Missouri, the site of President Barack Obama’s recent gun control speech, had a firm “permit-to-purchase” law in place until 2007, when it was repealed. The law -- which both the Missouri Sport Shooting Association and NRA helped overturn -- required Missouri residents to obtain a sheriff’s permit before purchasing a concealable weapon. Control...

    Regular readers know that I have posted this Department of Justice chart from the 2011 National Crime Survey many times. Take another hard look at it, full size:At this point regular readers would probably expect a string of comparative numbers; For example, In 1993 there were 257,908,000 Americans, 1,926,020 violent crimes, 24,530 homicides, 1,135,610 assaults, but… in 2011 there were 311,591,917 Americans, 1,203,564 violent crimes, 14,612 homicides, and 751,131 assaults, but… Instead I a going to look back at 1993 in a different way, by quoting a 1993 Newsweek column by George Will, titled “Are We ‘A Nation of Cowards’?”...

    A comprehensive lawsuit charging government conspiracy and cover-up was filed Tuesday in the United States District Court Southern District of Texas Brownsville Division by the parents of murdered Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agent Jamie Zapata and Special Agent Victor Avila, Jr., against the government, straw purchasers, individual government officials, gun dealers and others deemed to share in responsibility per the complaint. Gun Rights Examiner has obtained copies of the Plaintiff’s Original Complaint and the related docket sheet. On first reading, the complaint appears to have the potential to uncover specifics about government-sanctioned “gunwalking” and those who authorized it beyond what...

    A member of the University of Pennsylvania's 1979 Final Four team was fatally stabbed by his wife, who told police she had caught him looking at child pornography, according to court documents. Matthew White was found stabbed in the neck around 12:45 p.m. Monday in bed at his home, police said, and was pronounced dead a short time later. An officer responding to the home for a report of a stabbing found White's wife, Maria Rey Garcia-Pellon, as she pulled into the driveway, authorities said. As she was being taken into custody, according to a police affidavit, she said, "I...

    The reputed gang member accused of gunning down 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton last month was on the street even though he had been arrested three times in connection with break-ins and trespassing while on probation for a weapons conviction in recent months, the Tribune has learned. In two of those arrests, including one just 2 1/2 months ago, Cook County probation officials failed to notify prosecutors or the judge that Michael Ward had been arrested on the new misdemeanor charges and allegedly violated his probation.

    HOUSTON (AP) — A Texas man has been charged with murder in the fatal shooting at a crash scene of a suspected drunken driver who authorities say plowed into his sons as they helped push their family's broken-down pickup truck along a dark, narrow, rural road. David Barajas, 31, and his sons, 12-year-old David Jr. and 11-year-old Caleb, were about 50 yards from their Houston-area home when a car crashed into them. David Jr. died at the scene, while Caleb died later at a hospital. Neighbors said they heard gunshots minutes after the Dec. 7 crash near Alvin, about 30...

    Walking down the middle of the street near his parents' home in Oakdale, a man randomly fired a handgun at passing motorists -- killing a 9-year-old boy and injuring the boy's mother and another woman, police and witnesses said. A 34-year-old man, arrested without incident, shot at least four cars in a residential area shortly after 6 p.m. Monday, Feb. 11. The man has not been identified by police. In a Tuesday morning release, Oakdale authorities said there was, "no active threat to public safety at this time." One woman, who was taking groceries home from a nearby Rainbow Foods,...

    Investigators with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office recovered 81 spent shell casings at the scene of a murder in Marrero early Monday morning. Three suspects shot and killed Emeal Washington, 58, in the 6100 block of August Avenue, according to Col. John Fortunato, spokesman for the department. "There was a substantial number of shots, 81 spent shell casings fired at this one particular victim," he said. The murder is the first in unincorporated Jefferson Parish this year. The shooting occurred just after 2 a.m. as Washington, of Marrero, was visiting a friend's August Avenue residence. The two stepped outside while...

    Chicago’s murder rate is far worse now than it was during the city’s most notorious crime era, Al Capone’s “gangland,” when gun-control laws hardly existed, ABC reports. Leading up to the St. Valentine's Day Massacre, there were 26 killings in January 1929. Yet, 42 people were killed in Chicago last month, catching the attention of Chicagoans, the White House and politicians nationwide. If the current murder rate continues, February 2013 will far exceed February 1929, when there were 26 killings, including the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre.

    A homicidal fugitive former police officer, who has declared “war” on his former colleagues, claimed he was the victim of racism while serving in the Los Angeles police department. An unprecedented manhunt has been launched across California, Nevada, Arizona and northern Mexico, for Christopher Dorner, 33, a 19-stone former US Navy reserve lieutenant and American football college running back. Dorner, a trained marksman, is already suspected of killing three people, including one police officer, in a series of shootings that began last weekend.

    We hear a lot in the media about “firearm murder rates”, but I don’t really care about how someone is murdered, but rather whether they are murdered at all. The U.S. ranks 1st in firearms per person, but 98th overall by murder rate, putting us on the better side of mid-pack. The Swiss rank 2nd in firearms per person and have an almost nonexistent murder rate. Of the 20 countries with the most firearms per person, none have exceedingly high murder rates compared to the rest of the world. Indeed, when averaged, the murder rate of these 20 countries would...

Or where the person who was a political dissident decided to strangle them self and then saw off their own head after shooting them self in the head multiple times but it is ruled as a "suicide"...

    When Nkosi Thandiwe shot three white females in Atlanta, the “mainstream” media went into extreme CENSORSHIP mode. It was a top secret in the media that the victims were all beautiful, young white ladies. The Atlanta Journal Constitution even lifted information about one of the victims from a website that contained numerous pictures. The newspaper pretended like the pictures didn’t exist. During his testimony Wednesday, Thandiwe suggested that his reason for even purchasing the gun he used in the shootings was to enforce beliefs he’d developed about white people during his later years as an anthropology major at the University...

    Nobel Prize winning “economist” Paul Krugman spoke at Sixth & I Historic Synagogue in Washington, D.C. last week. During the Q&A session following the lecture, an audience member asked him about the rising national debt. Earlier in the evening, Krugman had already vocalized his satisfaction at President Obama’s apparent lack of concern over the exploding cumulative deficit. However, in a moment of brutal honesty, the esteemed Princeton professor revealed his long term prognosis. According to the professor, "Eventually we do have a problem. That the population is getting older, health care costs are rising…there is this question of how we’re...
