A 79-year-old Jackson County, Georgia, used a 911 call to report a home invasion then fired a round and called the alleged intruder a “punk” while talking to the dispatcher.
The incident occurred in Commerce, Georgia, on February 12 but the 911 was just released.
The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office issued a press release on the incident, describing it as a home invasion and burglary” which occurred shortly after noon. The 79-year-old woman “heard someone trying to get in a window and went to her back door to look out, at which time a black male was standing there.” She warned the would-be intruder not to come into her home.
A Wisconsin high school won’t be giving out awards like “big booty” to cheerleaders this year after the American Civil Liberties Union sent a letter to the district detailing complaints from multiple parents and staffers.
Tremper High School, part of the Kenosha Unified School District, has been holding an annual award ceremony for cheerleaders for at least five years. In 2017, along with standard honors, such as for “hardest worker,” awards for “big boobie” and “big booty” were given, according to the ACLU’s letter.
The following year, the “string bean award” for the skinniest cheerleader was added to the lineup, the letter said.
A police investigation will be carried out after racist stickers were found on people’s properties.
Residents in St Audrey Lane and Langley Close, St Ives, reported the anti-immigrant propaganda to police this morning (February 18) after spotting them on their doors and lampposts in the Cambridgeshire town.
Photographs of the stickers show messages on them including: “Mass immigration is white genocide” and “Diversity means no white countries, cities, neighbourhoods or people.”
Other stickers also say “Second generation? Third, fourth? You have to go back.”
Snakes have long been a subject of intrigue, fear, and mysticism in the mountains of Appalachia. Perhaps this is due to the Genesis story which speaks of the cursed serpent in the Garden of Eden, or maybe it is thanks to the fact that when the early colonists arrived in the New World, one of the first creatures to greet them was the eastern diamondback rattlesnake. Coming from a land where the only venomous snake was the extremely passive Adder, the British settlers were terrified by rattlesnakes, whose bites often brought death among 17th century colonists.
“Where my husband goes I can go. I can better stand the hardships of the journey than the anxieties for an absent husband.” With those words Nancy Kelsey began a journey across country no white woman had ever made. With her baby on her hip, Nancy, who had just turned 18 a few days earlier, became the first woman, other than Native Americans, to walk on Utah soil. The year was 1841 and the Kelsey clan, often on the move, once again had itching feet. A letter from a Dr. Marsh in California praising the new land excited many Missourians yearning for a great adventure. However, when spring came only a small group gathered at Sapling Grove near Weston, Missouri, to actually make the trip. Among them were several members of the extended Kelsey family, including Nancy, her husband Ben, and their daughter Martha Ann. Known as the Bartleson-Bidwell company, this group followed dim traces of the new Oregon Trail. Tom “Broken-Hand” Fitzpatrick, famous mountain man, was their guide as far as Soda Springs, Idaho. Then they were on their own. Seven long, weary months would pass before they arrived at Sutter’s Fort in California. Nancy would also earn the distinction of being the first white woman to cross the Sierra Nevada.
A 62-year-old maintenance man blacked up and performed a shocking racist black-and-white-minstrel routine aimed at a black colleague, in order to humiliate her during a works Christmas party.
Brian Davies, from Barry in Wales, was today fined £120 plus costs of £300 after being found guilty of racially aggravated harassment and using threatening or abusive behaviour at the party at Coopers Carvery in Ely, Cardiff, on December 19.
Cardiff Magistrates’ Court heard catering manager Loretta Doyley was ‘singled out’ when Davies directed the black and white minstrel song ‘Mammy’ at her, leaving her wishing ‘the ground would open up’.
We haven’t had a TV service in I don’t know how long. I didn’t have it when Lisa moved in, but we ordered it then, only to cancel it within 6 months. We haven’t had it since and we’ve been married 7 or 8 years now, something like that.
If I hear about something I might want to watch I can usually find it online and if I can’t, then it’s really no big deal – the world is not going to end because I can’t watch a particular program.
Today, we sometimes see them in the used racks in gunshops across middle America. And we still see them in vintage hunting photos from the Adirondacks to the High Sierras. It’s a lever action, but obviously not a Winchester or a Marlin because it lacks a tubular magazine under the barrel. Sometimes it wears a scope (because it can), but it more often has a barrel-mounted rear sight or receiver-mounted aperture. It has a two-piece stock, forend and buttstock separated by the large block of steel, gently rounded on the bottom for its receiver. Chances are good that this lever action is a Savage 99.
I’ve got a Savage 99E (the cheapest model they made) in 308 that I hold near and dear to my heart. It was the first centerfire rifle I ever fired way back in 1974, then about 10 – 15 years ago, my father passed it down to me.
Actor Jussie Smollett paid two men $3,500 to stage an attack on himself last month, taking “advantage of the pain and anger of racism to promote his career,” Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie T. Johnson said Thursday.
The “Empire” star was arrested Thursday morning on suspicion of filing a false report about the January 29 incident. A 1:30 p.m. bail hearing is scheduled.
A former employee of the National Republican Senate Committee did some digging into the campaign finances of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, only to find some shady dealings that are raising eyebrows.
Ocasio-Cortez’s Chief of Staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, was heavily involved in the socialist congresswoman’s campaign. He owns a PAC called Brand New Congress, and an associated Limited Liability Company (LLC) by the same name. This is not particularly unusual, but some of the payments transferred between the company, the PAC, and Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign appear to be less than ethical.
Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- H.R. 8, which would criminalize the private transfer of firearms, has received significant attention from the gun rights community. However, H.R. 1112, which purportedly targets the inappropriately-named “Charleston loophole,” is just as insidious an attack on gun owners. Both bills were passed out of the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday.

My comrades and I constantly wrote and talked about the activities of the American military reference laboratory for the study of dangerous pathogens in Almaty, opened by the authorities of Kazakhstan in 2016. Officials rejected all accusations of public figures and environmentalists about the danger of this object, especially built with the money of the Pentagon in a seismic zone and in a large metropolis. Now, employees of the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Kazakhstan were forced to admit that new toxic strains of contagious measles disease were first found in Ukraine, and local vaccines are unable to effectively fight them.
Houston, Texas -(Ammoland.com)- The lead investigator and long term Houston Police Department undercover narcotics Officer Gerald Goines lied to obtain a no-knock warrant. The no-knock warrant lead to the death of a middle-aged couple, their dog, and the wounding of four officers, at 7815 Harding Street on 28 January 2019. From abc13.com:
The search warrant clearly shows the initial information used to obtain the no-knock search warrant involved a number of lies.
In the original warrant obtained on Jan. 28, the lead case agent, Officer Gerald Goines, wrote that a confidential informant bought heroin at the house the day before the drug raid. The informant also allegedly saw heroin and a weapon, which appeared to be a 9mm handgun, as he was buying the suspected drugs at the house.
In that warrant, the informant allegedly returned to Goines with a brown powder substance, telling him that it was called “boy,” which is slang for heroin. The confidential informant also said the substance he allegedly bought at the home was packed in a large quantity of plastic baggies.
The Houston no-knock raid was characterized as an ambush by drug dealers. The evidence did not support that conclusion.
