    MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – A family is seeking answers after they said just days after Thanksgiving, Miami-Dade police shot and killed a grandfather of three young children. Loved ones say it happened while he was with his teenage son, trying to protect their property from intruders. “We were on our property, trying to protect our property because someone was trying to rob us,” said Osvaldo Cueli III, the victim’s son. “They are covering up my dad’s death,” added Gabriela Cueli, the victim’s daughter. They are siblings gripped by the trauma of seeing their father, Osvaldo Cueli, shot dead in their...

    The blind Spirit Lake woman fatally shot by police after firing her own weapon last year sustained nine gunshot wounds, according to a news released published Thursday by Kootenai County Prosecuting Attorney Stan Mortensen. The detail comes almost three weeks after Mortensen said the officer who shot and killed 67-year-old S.A. Floyd in her apartment while conducting a welfare check committed no crimes. Earlier this month, the county prosecutor deemed the shooting justified... ...Spirit Lake police officer James Windrem “acted lawfully” and “fired his weapon in an attempt to defend himself,” as well as Spirit Lake Police Chief Michael Morlan...
  • Shooting Down 11 Jets In 11 Days, Ukraine Nudges The Russian Air Force Closer To Organizational Death-Spiral

    The Russian air force lost another Sukhoi Su-34 fighter-bomber on Thursday, the Ukrainian air force claimed. If confirmed, the Thursday shoot-down would extend an unprecedented hot streak for Ukrainian air-defenses. The Ukrainian claim they’ve shot down 11 Russian planes in 11 days: eight Su-34s, two Sukhoi Su-35 fighters and a rare Beriev A-50 radar plane. But those 11 claimed losses are worse than they might seem for the increasingly stressed Russian air force. In theory, the air arm has plenty more planes. In practice, the service is dangerously close to collapse.

  • Finland is Building Shooting Ranges to Boost Citizen Soldiers

    There are currently around 600 ranges in Finland, compared with 2,000 at the turn of the 21st century. Consider the trend. It means 1,400 shooting ranges were closed and or destroyed in the last 25 years. It coincides well with the fall of the Soviet Union, and the belief Finland no longer had to worry about invasion. The hard lessons of the Winter War of 1939 - 1940 were minimized. Although completely outmatched by Soviet manpower and material, Finns fought the Soviet behemoth and kept their independence. They are said to have caused 300 thousand Soviet casualties while suffering only...

    The migrant teen who allegedly shot a tourist and fired on NYPD officers in Times Square pleaded not guilty Monday to charges of attempted murder — as his lawyer begged the public to let the case play out in court, not on social media. “This case … has gotten a lot of media attention,” defense attorney Adrienne Doreen Edward said of the Feb. 8 shooting allegedly committed by 15-year-old Jesus Alejandro Rivas-Figueroa, of Venezuela. “I’m asking everybody to let this case play out in the courtroom — not on social media, or in the press, where it has taken on...

    The litigation boils down to the public’s right to know what makes the mind behind a mass shooting tick. It’s been nearly a year since Audrey Elizabeth Hale — a 28-year-old woman pretending to be a man — stormed into The Covenant School, a Christian school in Nashville, and murdered six people, including three 9-year-olds.It’s very likely that because Hale described herself as transgender, local and federal law enforcement have refused to turn over the multitudinous writings that made up the Covenant killer’s manifesto. Some Freedom of Information Act advocates contend the manifesto would have been made public long ago...

    "Don't worry my MUSLIMS brothers I am pass the threat phase. I'm in planning mode." A mentally unstable leftist shot 3 Muslims in Burlington, VT and every political figure, including Biden and Kamala, and the entire media falsely claimed it was “Islamophobia” and “anti-Palestinianism” until it turned out that the shooter supported Hamas. A mentally unstable woman walks into a pro-Israel church with a rifle that says “Palestine” on it after appearing in a hijab and there’s uncomfortable fidgeting. The police claimed that she had “antisemitic writings”, they neglected to mention the overt support for Islamic terrorism. Moreno’s Telegram posts...

    Two teenagers have been charged as juveniles in the Kansas City Chiefs parade shooting, despite a prosecutor previously saying they would be accused as adults. The suspects, who remain unidentified by authorities, are charged with gun-related offenses and resisting arrest, said The Jackson County Family Court division. 'It is anticipated that additional charges are expected in the future as the investigation by the Kansas City Police Department continues,' the Office of the Juvenile Officer said in a statement. Missouri law dictates that juvenile hearings are not open to the public. It's possible the suspects could be charged as adults if...

    When Genesse Ivonne Moreno opened fire at Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church in Houston last Sunday, establishment media reports had the typical focus: she was schizophrenic, possibly thought of herself as a man, yet was still able to buy a gun with no problem, and the real problem is that Texas has no red flag law. While there can be little doubt that Moreno was severely deranged, the media reports are ignoring elements of the story that shed light on Moreno’s motives. Now, why might that be? One reason is that the left’s favorite religion is involved. Moreno made a donation...
