A Florida GOP staffer has been fired after sending a statement, via an official state government email account, to a journalist asserting that two of the surviving kids who have been prominently featured on the media were not actually students of the school but "actors that travel to various crisis when they happen".

Coral Springs police upset at some Broward County deputies for not entering school

Quote:
(CNN)When Coral Springs police officers arrived at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, on February 14 in the midst of the school shooting crisis, many officers were surprised to find not only that Broward County Sheriff's Deputy Scot Peterson, the armed school resource officer, had not entered the building, but that three other Broward County Sheriff's deputies were also outside the school and had not entered, Coral Springs sources tell CNN. The deputies had their pistols drawn and were behind their vehicles, the sources said, and not one of them had gone into the school.

With direction from the Broward deputies who were outside, Coral Springs police soon entered the building where the shooter was. New Broward County Sheriff's deputies arrived on the scene, and two of those deputies and an officer from Sunrise, Florida, joined the Coral Springs police as they went into the building.

Some Coral Springs police were stunned and upset that the four original Broward County Sheriff's deputies who were first on the scene did not appear to join them as they entered the school, Coral Springs sources tell CNN. It's unclear whether the shooter was still in the building when they arrived.

What these Coral Springs officers observed -- though not their feelings about it -- will be released in a report, likely next week. Sources cautioned that tapes are currently being reviewed and official accounts could ultimately differ from recollections of officers on the scene.

The resentment among Coral Springs officials toward Broward County officials about what they perceived to be a dereliction of duty may have reached a boiling point at a vigil the night of February 15, where, in front of dozens of others, Coral Springs City Manager Mike Goodrum confronted Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel. A source familiar with the conversation tells CNN that Goodrum was upset that the Broward deputies had remained outside the school while kids inside could have been bleeding out, among other reasons.

Goodrum said in a statement to CNN, "Given the horrific events of that day emotions were running high and the sheriff and I had a heated moment the following evening. Sheriff Israel and I have spoken several times since and I can assure you that our departments have a good working relationship and the utmost respect for each other." Goodrum declined to comment on the content of their conversation.
Wait a second - what?

I remember reading yesterday about how the sheriff's department basically forced the school resource deputy to resign for not going in. But now you had FOUR freaking deputies on scene and NONE of them went into the school to confront a shooter who was in there killing kids? Even after backup arrived - who apparently had to go in by themselves at first? What the actual f-word.

Who does the road belong to? If it is state or county (or even city) then he can't legally block the road. There is also the matter of a 10 foot easement on both sides of the road. Which in either case of state or county means the state or county owns the easement and access can't be denied to the state or county. Or its citizens.

Man without electricity for four days threatens to blow up utility substation

Quote:
Vernon police said 63-year-old Robert Winter was charged with making terroristic threats.

Authorities say Winter called Jersey Central Power & Light on Monday and quickly became agitated while speaking with a utility staffer. They say he threatened to kidnap an employee and then indicated that he knew how to make bombs and would blow up a substation so no one could have power.

A JCP&L security investigator soon contacted police and provided them with a recorded copy of the phone call.

Winter was arrested a short time later at his home. It wasn't known Tuesday if he's retained an attorney.
I guess it's a good thing this guy doesn't live in Puerto fecking Rico.

Not to mention, I'm really not sure there is anything that the SCOTUS could actually call on to rule in this asshole's favour. Because its a mater of state law, as well, apparently.

I don't even know what to say to this.

Quote:
Alyssa M. Edwards, 27, was charged on Monday with two counts of endangering children by the Ashland County Sheriff’s Office after the 8-year-old boy shot his 4-year-old sister four times with a rifle in their Hayesville home, said Chief Deputy Carl Richert.
Edwards appeared for a bond setting via Skype while in the Ashland County Jail on Monday afternoon.

Ashland County Prosecutor Christopher Tunnell said that Edwards’ husband believed she was taking the two children to a babysitter after she and her husband both left for work. Instead, Tunnell said, she left the two children home alone.

The .22-caliber rifle was kept in a gun locker with other firearms in the home, Tunnell said. It was unclear whether it was locked. Even if it were locked, he said, the 8-year-old knew how to unlock the gun locker and “was familiar with the firearm.”

“The ammunition was stored separate from the gun, and it appears the 8-year-old was able to load the magazine and chamber the first round,” Tunnell said.

Tunnell indicated Edwards was informed of the shooting of the 4-year-old by the 8-year-old around 10 a.m. while working at a nearby horse farm.

“She came home, cleaned up a bed cover with blood on it, examined the 4-year-old and was aware the 4-year-old was injured at the time,” Tunnell said. “And despite that knowledge, clocked back in at work at 11 a.m., again leaving the 8-year-old and the 4-year-old home alone, yet again.”

It wasn’t until between noon and 2 p.m. that Edwards took both children to the hospital, after urine appeared to be leaking out of the girl’s wound, Tunnell said. The hospital then contacted police, and it wasn’t until then that the husband was told of the shooting, the prosecutor said.

The daughter is still at Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital in Cleveland, but is in stable condition. The boy is in the custody of children’s services.

Today's mass shooting comes from Alabama.

Quote:
A man with a rifle stormed into an Alabama restaurant Wednesday morning and opened fire, killing the owner and wounding three other people, authorities said.

The suspect entered the City Grill in the east Alabama town of Hurtsboro, yelled out the name of the owner and started firing a .22-caliber rifle, Russell County Sheriff Heath Taylor said.

The suspect knew the cafe owner, 69-year-old Donny Hughes, who was killed in the barrage of gunfire, the sheriff said. He did not release a motive.

The wounded were taken to hospitals, and one of them was in surgery, the sheriff said.

The suspect left the restaurant and went to his home nearby, where he was taken into custody. The sheriff declined to release his name, The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reported .

The US Constitution says "nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation." (Fifth Amendment). The case would revolve around whether the state laws violate this clause.

So the questions for the Court would be (a) was the road private in the first place, given that it had been in use for a century by the public. (b) If it was still private, did the state action amount to a "taking"? Local governments make all kinds of rules all the time about land, without having to pay the land-owners. (c) There is a rule about land that it can't be made completely inaccessible to the owner. So if you sell an acre of land in the middle of a larger property, you have to allow access. California owns the territorial waters and the shoreline up to a point (usually the high tide line, but that varies by state). So they could rule that the beach has to be made accessible somehow to the people of California.

If you’re not good at cooking you better be real good at sucking dick.” That memorable line is from a new video game released this week, just in time for International Women’s Day.

The game is called Super Seducer. It was created by a pickup artist called Richard La Ruina, a man Piers Morgan recently branded “repulsive” for his views on British women. Take that in for a second. Piers Morgan thinks this man’s views on women are beyond the pale. In the game players are given the option to try out different lines and “moves” on women, like grabbing their breasts … or their bottom. The aim is to hone your skills for real life so you can “win” the ultimate prize: the girl of your dreams.
Actually, it's all about ethics in gaming journalism...

This game teaches men it’s OK to grope women. Help me get it off sale
