Perhaps English novelist Elizabeth Jane Howard’s memorable quote says it best; “Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family: Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one.”And indeed this clan, this network, this tribe, this “FAMILY” came together as one to defend themselves against a home invasion, and won!A man who lived less than a mile away from the house he broke into discovered “the hard way” that a well armed and loving family will defend themselves and protect each other every time.The incident began when the home invader broke in through the back door of this home in the early hours of the morning.The father, mother and son were all armed, and fired a warning shot to let the intruder know that he had only two options, retreat back into the night, or face a sure death.And apparently the intruder chose “death” as he refused to leave and continued advancing into the kitchen, before being shot dead by the entire family.The officer in the video is citing the Castle Doctrine. Even though the guy was not armed, he was warned and then did not retreat. The neighbors are being very supportive of the family.
Obviously everyone has a right to protect themselves, this family even took the risky option of firing a “warning shot” to alert this intruder that they were armed, imagine if this guy had a weapon and was also armed? I for one would never have given this guy the option, “family first, and family always!”Source: Right Wing News
The governor of Virginia, Terry McAuliffe, has said that his only message for the white supremacists who brought chaos to the city of Charlottesville is “Go home”.A woman died and 19 people were injured when a car rammed a crowd of people opposing a far-right rally there.The FBI has opened a civil rights investigation into the incident.Earlier, street brawls erupted between white nationalists and counter-protesters.Attorney General Jeff Sessions said “the violence and deaths in Charlottesville strike at the heart of American law and justice.”When such actions arise from racial bigotry and hatred, they betray our core values and cannot be tolerated.”Twenty-year-old James Fields from Ohio, the alleged driver of the car, is in detention on suspicion of second-degree murder.In detail: A reckoning in CharlottesvilleIn addition to those injured in the car incident, the Charlottesville Police Department said 15 were wounded in other violence related to the far-right march.Late in the afternoon, a Virginia State Police helicopter crashed in woodland south-west of the city, killing two police officers. The helicopter had been part of the operation to monitor the clashes.
The “Unite the Right” march was called to protest against plans to remove a statue of General Robert E Lee, who had fought for the pro-slavery Confederacy during the US Civil War.’You are anything but a patriot’Mr McAuliffe told a press conference: “I have a message for all the white supremacists, and the Nazis who came into Charlottesville today. Our message is plain and simple: Go home. You are not wanted in this great commonwealth. Shame on you. You pretend that you’re patriots, but you are anything but a patriot.”You came here today to hurt people. And you did hurt people. But my message is clear: We are stronger than you.”The governor, who is a Democrat, said he had spoken to President Trump, and twice urged him to begin a movement to bring people together.He thanked the police and law enforcement officials, who he said had prevented “a much worse day”, and praised the emergency services who helped the wounded.
The violence in Charlottesville – a liberal college town – is a stark demonstration of the growing political divide in the US, which has intensified since President Trump’s election last year.Right-wing blogger Jason Kessler had called for a “pro-white” rally, and white nationalists promoted the gathering widely.Oren Segal, director of the Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism, said several “white power” groups were present – including neo-Nazis and factions of the Ku Klux Klan.The New York Times reports that some were chanting “You will not replace us,” and “Jew will not replace us.”The rise of the alt-rightWhy do people still fly the Confederate flag?The hoax about desecration of US Civil War gravesAnti-racism organisations such as Black Lives Matter held protests at the scene.On Friday, the white nationalists held lit torches and chanted “White lives matter” as they marched through the University of Virginia in the city.
President Donald Trump condemned “in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides”.”The hate and the division must stop right now,” he told reporters, speaking in New Jersey, where he is on a working holiday. “We have to come together as Americans with love for our nation.”‘Call evil by its name’Democrats and Republicans alike took issue with his choice of words, noting that he failed to refer to the central role of white nationalists.Republican Senator Cory Gardner tweeted: “Mr. President – we must call evil by its name. These were white supremacists and this was domestic terrorism.”Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah, also a Republican, felt similarly.“What we’ve seen today in Charlottesville needs to be condemned and called what it is: hatred, evil, racism & homegrown extremism,” tweeted Democrat John Kerry, who served as US Secretary of State under Barack Obama.One picture tweeted by author J K Rowling showed a man on the street carrying a swastika flag.Speaking in Charlottesville, the city’s Mayor Michael Signer said the city would fight back. “We’ve overcome McCarthyism, we’ve overcome segregation – and we’re gonna overcome this.”He said those who brought burning torches to Virginia’s lawns “belong in the trash heap of history”.
Last Monday, a shoplifter in Toronto was caught stealing an outfit for a job interview. But when Constable Niran Jeyanesan arrived to arrest him, he was moved by the 18-year-old’s story and decided to buy him the clothes instead.Now the officer has revealed that the young man got the job, and will begin work next week.”He is starting Monday,” Mr Jeyanesan told Canada’s CP24 by email.”He told me he actually wore the shirt and the tie – I’m just so happy!”Speaking last week, the officer said Walmart staff had apprehended the would-be thief for attempting to steal a dress shirt, tie and socks.”This young person has been facing his own difficulties in life and he was looking to straighten out all that by providing for his family and trying to get a job,” Mr Jeyanesan said.”This individual didn’t have any resources.”He wanted to go get that job. That was in his mind. I think he truly made a mistake.”Toronto helps ‘doofy son’ find parked carMan who saved Toronto $50,000 is rebukedSalon saves teen’s hair and her smileThe teenager had told the officer that his father was sick, and that the family had suffered difficult times as a result.Constable Jeyanesan said that thanks to “some friends who were willing to help out”, the elder man is now employed as well.Speaking to the BBC on 7 August, Mr Jeyanesan’s staff sergeant Paul Bois praised his actions.”Arresting him [the 18-year-old] wouldn’t have been in the best interests of anyone,” he said.”I reacted very positively to the news; all issues were resolved by the action the officer took.”It reiterates our goal of being positive role models in the community.”Share this storye
Okera Ras, a former Fox News web video producer, was found dead in his Bronx, N.Y., home Wednesday, just hours after learning that his son succumbed to injuries from a gunshot wound from two days earlier.Ras’ cause of death was not officially announced. Vernon Pouncey, Ras’ cousin, told FoxNews.com that the New York City medical examiner told a family member it appeared Ras “laid down to go to sleep and never woke up.”“He was close to his son,” Pouncey said. “He was a dedicated father to all of his children.”The investigation into the shooting death of Ras’ son, Duro Akil, 34, is ongoing. Akil, who lived with his father, heard a commotion in the hallway of their apartment building and opened the door, Pouncey said. The gunman fired through the door and hit Akil, Pouncey said.Akil was treated at Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx.Ras, 54, was under the impression that his son would be able to recover, Pouncey said. But the family learned that Akil’s injuries were more extensive than previously believed, he said.The New York City Police Department could not confirm details about what led up to the shooting. There have been no arrests. The New York Daily News reported that police have identified a suspect.Makini Akil, Ras’ daughter, told the paper that the family believes her father died of a broken heart.“It was really too much for him,” she told the paper. “It was really like heartbreak.”Ras, who received a master’s degree in communication from New York University, was remembered in the Fox News newsroom as a diligent worker who had a warm smile for colleagues and a contagious laugh. He recently left Fox News to pursue his own business ventures.Ras was a family man who was planning a family reunion that is taking place in Virginia Beach, Va., next week. He was active in his Bronx community and led a monthly healing retreat, his daughter told the paper.A GoFundMePage for the family said he “was a cultural custodian of Afrocentric traditions, including Kwanzaa, Khamitic and natural healing practices.

Ohio cops were called out to a motel room by a strange woman with an alarming request. When they entered the filthy joint, they found the threesome’s disturbing new use for bed sheets, and it made them sick to their stomachs. The officers left the room in tears, unable to handle a scene that was unlike any other they’ve had before.On Wednesday, a 911 dispatcher received a call from a woman asking for assistance at Parkway Inn in Middletown. The caller was reportedly having a problem with one of her young sons, but it wasn’t until cops walked in that they knew exactly what she meant, seeing what had taken place over the last 22 hours.According to WDTN, 26-year-old Theresa Hawkins-Stephens was staying in the rented rat hole with her two boys, ages 5 and 6, along with her 29-year-old girlfriend, Rachael Bostian, and Bostian’s 56-year-old mother, Ramona Bostian. The call to police came from the room on account of one of one of the boys having fallen unconscious.The caller claimed the boys’ injury happened after he ran away for a couple of days and some kids found him. She’s heard saying in the 911 call that the kids who got a hold of him “messed him up real bad,” but that was far from the truth of what really happened.
Officers found not just one, but both boys wrapped up in a sheet in a cocoon-type case, so that they were defenseless against the women’s abuse they force on them for 22 hours straight. The day before, one of the boys had taken food for him and his brother to eat, which was enough to set the women off and punish them with nearly a full day of perpetual beatings. The injuries they endured were so horrific that every officer on the scene left the room in tears, but it only got worse two days later.The children were rushed to the hospital, the 5-year-old with life-threatening injuries and the other’s deemed as serious. On Friday morning, the youngest of the two was pronounced dead, never being able to recover from what he had suffered under his mother and her two friends’ wrath.The three women had already been arrested before the boy was declared dead, and they were each initially charged with felonious assault and child endangering. However, new charges are expected to be updated since their crime against these kids resulted in a death. The outcome for the 6-year-old has yet to be determined.Before it got to this point in the motel, the boys were failed by so many people, including a child protective system who either wasn’t aware or did nothing about concerns that had to have been obvious. There was not a single person in these children’s lives to protect them, until it was too late. Deserved recourse for each of these three monsters, is to be wrapped up in cot sheets from their jail cell and given the same treatment for hours on end, just like they did to these two little boys. It’s their turn to be the victims.
While heading inside a store to get some groceries late at night, a Memphis man encountered a black teen who asked him a question that caught him completely off guard. Stopped in his tracks by what was happening, he saw what was behind him and acted fast. Now, this man will never be the same.Matt White was at the Kroger store in an upper-class part of this generally poor area at around 9 p.m. at night when 16-year-old Chauncy Jones Black approached him. Before the boy could even get all the words out of his mouth, Matt was struck by the look on his face and his overall demeanor. With his head hanging in shame, it seemed like “he had been turned down 100 times,” Matt wrote in a social media post of what happened that night.Chauncy had taken the bus to the “rich people’s Kroger” as he referred to it, in hopes of working for food as he had none and only an hour to do it before he had to catch the bus back to his house, where he lived alone with his mother. He asked Matt if he could carry his groceries out to his car for him in exchange for a pack of glazed donuts. “He looked ashamed, hungry and broken,” Matt described. He immediately said that he would get him some donuts, but he wanted to do something else also.After taking Matt’s groceries out to his car, Chauncy told him that he enjoys school, gets straight A’s, and is trying to get a job to help his mom pay rent since the two of them have nothing but each other and a bus pass. Matt invited him back in the store and said he wanted him to fill the cart up with all the items he needed, and the teen graciously took him up on the offer.When they were finished shopping, Matt saw the bus pull up behind the boy, but didn’t want this kid to have to haul all these bags home on his own, so he offered to give him a ride instead. When he pulled up to his house, he couldn’t believe what he saw.Chauncy after meeting Matt“When we got to his house I was truly humbled. He wasn’t kidding. He and his mom had nothing. They didn’t even have beds or furniture,” Matt wrote in his post. “They were sleeping on pads made out of sleeping bags, they had two lamps and nothing in their fridge.” He was particularly taken aback by Chauncy’s mother who was “so sweet but very fragile” and has a condition that makes it difficult for her to walk, and she shakes.As Matt helped the teen fill his fridge and cabinets with all the groceries, he could see the light start to come back into the boy’s face. “He looked like a kid again,” Matt said, adding that there was hope in his eyes, whereas before he was full of despair.Matt left that night moved by this boy. After writing what happened on Facebook, he decided something more had to be done. He started a GoFundMe for him and has already raised over $21,000 for the family, thanks to kind-hearted people in this country who were touched by Matt’s post and Chauncey’s desire to get himself and his ill mom out of poverty.Matt didn’t see skin color on this kid and make any bad assumption about him, he saw a boy struggling more than any kid should, and a desire to earn what he needed. The man acted immediately to help him out because he had the ability to do it and in turn inspired a chain reaction of kindness that led to the teen being able to work and continue to fill his fridge.
The proud mother of 12 reported children, Cheryl Prudham knows a thing or two about getting government benefits when she needs them. Because the United Kingdom operates a socialist government, she is able to keep getting pregnant and keep getting handouts whenever she asks. Although other citizens revile her for wasting taxpayer money on her schemes and pleasures, she believes she earns her $49,000 per year in welfare. However, now this English mother is under fire not from fellow citizens, but from the police. She has been caught stealing more than $12,000 in change from parking meters across the country. And she’s in a lot of trouble…Known as the “Queen of Benefits,” Prudham has been a public enemy ever since her exploits were exposed. Not only was she caught shopping for a new Mercedes earlier this year, she visited the local dealership near her home in Wigan, Lancashire. She didn’t even attempt to hide her lavish spending habits.Her estranged husband, Robert Prudham, 31, has been charged with the stealing of the $12,886 from the parking meters. Not only that, but the law wants him for failing to admit to his previous criminal convictions when he applied for a job at a recruitment firm. But they figured him out and now he is going to be in trouble.Cheryl was busy handling her estranged husband’s stolen cash – and she knew exactly where it was coming from all along.Both Prudhams and 27-year-old Jacob Undertown are all involved and charged with the same crimes. But the family trio starkly deny any involvement in the criminal allegations. They say someone else did it.But the evidence is pretty convincing that the three stole cash from numerous parking lots in Maidstone, Kent.In November, the family trio will stand trial.Cheryl became famous after it was widely reported how much she takes home from government benefits. She birthed six children with two different men before bedding down with Robert to produce six more. Besides being a full-time government benefit leech, Cheryl is also a part-time cleanerCheryl ended her relationship with Robert when she caught him enjoying a threesome with his own cousin. It is unclear if the cousin is male or female.“I don’t want another [man] because they are too much hard work. I was hurt by Robert and find it difficult to trust again,” she said.Although she is already a mother of twelve, Cheryl is already dreaming about her next child. Instead of having a relationship, she’d rather just go with a sperm donor. She admits she is addicted to being pregnant.When they were a couple, the Prudhams took home about $73,626 per year and easily evaded the $31,899 benefits cap with some loopholes. When she has her thirteenth child, Cheryl was take home even more government benefits.“Another baby would mean more benefits so the more the merrier,” said Cheryl. “I’m not worried about getting hit by the benefits cap, there are always ways around it.”Please SHARE YOUR REACTION to this story in the comments below now!
For some strange reason, both the Prime Minister and German courts appear to have no problem with a set of Sharia police volunteers impersonating German police officers and threatening violence on those “infidels” who subscribe to German law over Sharia law.Since radical Islam appears to be moving westward at a rapid pace, should President Trump put his foot down now and forbid the creation of Sharia police in the United States?Make your voice heard!
Flying home from Nashville to Pittsburgh on a rerouted Southwest Airlines flight, Stacy Hurt’s suitcase was misplaced in transit. To top it all off, the bag contained essential items for her 9 a.m. chemotherapy appointment the next day.Hurt, who has been battling colon cancer since 2014, naturally panicked and phoned the airline.
“I had a lot of items in the suitcase that I needed and wanted for chemotheraphy,” Hurt told CBS Pittsburgh. “One of them was medication. But many of them were personal items to me. I just started getting very emotional, and I started to cry.”ASHLEY JUDD SAYS AIRPORT SECURITY WORKER TOUCHED HERThough Hurt didn’t know it then, there was a “guardian angel” on the other line: Sarah Rowan, who had been working as a customer service agent for Southwest’s Pittsburgh office for just six months.Despite the frustrating situation, Rowan told ABC News that Hurt was “as sweet as can be” on the phone, and immediately empathized. Rowan’s own father, Frank, passed away from complications with Hodgkin’s lymphoma and leukemia in 2011.“He was the strongest man I’ve ever known,” Rowan told People. “A lot of what I see in Stacy is what I saw in my dad. I felt a very strong connection with her from the start.”Thought the night was getting late, Rowan promised to locate the luggage by morning. Around 2 a.m., Hurt’s bag arrived at Pittsburgh International Airport, but couriers had already left for the night.“I looked up her address, and it was about 25 minutes from where I live,” Rowan told HuffPost. “Me getting the bag to her was more important than getting into bed half an hour earlier,” said Rowan, so she drove it there herself. The next day, Hurt awoke at her home in Bridgeville to find her suitcase on her porch with a heartwarming note.
“Sorry for the delay getting your bag to you. Myself and my Southwest family are thinking of you amd wishing you all the best. Kick that cancer’s BUTT!” Rowan wrote.Sharing the photo on Facebook, Hurt wrote that this unexpected act of kindness moved her to tears. Hurt later told People she felt compelled to share this story to remind her fellow cancer warriors of all the good people out there who have their backs. Southwest also commended Rowan’s compassion.“We are very proud of Sarah’s kind, empathetic actions that represent the best of Southwest hospitality and the legendary customer service that our wonderful employees aim to deliver every day,” the airline said in a statement to ABC News.
Weeks later, on August 9, the two new friends met for the first time where it all began, at Pittsburgh International Airport. “She just epitomizes everything good,” said Hurt.
