St. Louis cops kill knife wielding man

ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson says officers warned a suspect multiple times to put down his weapon before they shot and killed him.

The shooting happened around 1 p.m. Tuesday at McLaran and Riverview. Police say the suspect tried to rob the Six Star Market convenience store with a knife. Chief Sam Dotson said the store owner let the man leave the store. A St. Louis City Alderwoman witnessed the man walking erratically around and called police.

When officers arrived, the suspect refused to put down weapon despite multiple verbal command by police. Chief Sam Dotson says the man yelled at officers “shoot me now” several times. Witnesses also confirmed what the man said.

Dotson says the man continued to refuse the officer’s commands, approached within three to four feet of them with the knife in an attack posture.

Both officers opened fire on the suspect killing him. No officers were injured.

I bet y’all are thinking I’m going to come down on the cops for this one too, huh?
Sorry to disappoint you. If everything happened the way that this story says it did (and there were multiple witnesses), the only criticism I have is they were stupid to let him come within 5 yards of them, much less 3-4 feet. I’d have shot him long before they did. I’ve been stabbed before and it fucking hurts.
Some might say they should’ve tazed him instead. Sorry, but sometimes that shit don’t work on doped up or crazy people. With my luck, that would’ve been one of those times.

Thermal imaging with your smartphone

Smartphones are getting a new way of seeing.

Thermal imaging, a long-costly technology that lets soldiers see in the dark and firefighters see through smoke, is rapidly moving toward the mainstream with phone add-ons that cost hundreds of dollars rather than thousands.

Flir Systems Inc., one of the best-known manufacturers in the field, in July introduced a $349 iPhone accessory that allows the smartphone’s display to show glowing heat signatures of people, animals, lights and other objects. Its Flir One looks a bit like a standard protective case for a smartphone. The camera-equipped black sleeve wraps around an iPhone 5 or 5s, allowing a user to point at objects while viewing images on its display.

All Patriots need to read this

With events in Ferguson deteriorating from day to day, despite the arrival of the Missouri National Guard, some have asked what further escalation steps are possible.

As a reminder, the reason Missouri governor Jay Nixon resorted to the aid of the National Guard is due to the limitations imposed by the Posse Comitatus Act which, broadly, seeks to limit the powers of Federal government in using federal military personnel, i.e., the Armed Forces of the United States, to enforce state laws. The Act does not apply to the National Guard, nor to the US Coast Guard, although the former will likely not see much practical use in Missouri.

However, as usually happens, there are loopholes and the best place to uncover these is in a 132-page primer conveniently released by none other than the US Army back on April 21, known simply as ATP 3-39.33 “Civil Disturbances.” The primer begins with the umbrella statement:

Civil unrest may range from simple, nonviolent protests that address specific issues, to events that turn into full-scale riots. Gathering in protest may be a recognized right of any person or group, regardless of where U.S. forces may be operating. In the United States, this fundamental right is protected under the Constitution of the United States…

“Protected” it may be, but as usual, the interpretation of the Constitution is in the eye of the beholder, or more appropriately, gun holder. Because shortly thereafter we further read the following:

The Constitution of the United States, laws, regulations, policies, and other legal issues limit the use of federal military personnel in domestic support operations. Any Army involvement in civil disturbance operations involves many legal issues requiring comprehensive legal reviews. However, federal forces are authorized for use in civil disturbance operations under certain circumstances.

INCOMING!!!!!

IVANPAH DRY LAKE, CALIF. — Workers at a state-of-the-art solar plant in the Mojave Desert have a name for birds that fly through the plant’s concentrated sun rays — “streamers,” for the smoke plume that comes from birds that ignite in midair.

Federal wildlife investigators who visited the BrightSource Energy plant last year and watched as birds burned and fell, reporting an average of one “streamer” every two minutes, are urging California officials to halt the operator’s application to build a still-bigger version.

The investigators want the halt until the full extent of the deaths can be assessed. Estimates per year now range from a low of about a thousand by BrightSource to 28,000 by an expert for the Center for Biological Diversity environmental group.

The deaths are “alarming. It’s hard to say whether that’s the location or the technology,” said Garry George, renewable-energy director for the California chapter of the Audubon Society. “There needs to be some caution.”

The bird kills mark the latest instance in which the quest for clean energy sometimes has inadvertent environmental harm. Solar farms have been criticized for their impacts on desert tortoises, and wind farms have killed birds, including numerous raptors.

I bet this is driving the fucking Eco-freaks insane. They want clean, natural energy to save the earth and end up killing animals by doing it.
It reminds me of the wind farms up near the Altamont Pass in the foothills between the Central Valley and the Fucking Bay Area – there’s thousands of wind turbines up there in that once beautiful barren country due to the fucking hippies demands for clean energy, now they’re pissed because of the chopped up raptors at the base of them.
Stupid fuckers don’t realize that everything in this life is a trade-off – you gotta give up something to get something.

This bird finger is for you, officer.

For 17 years, Modesto’s Public Works Department has used mounted cameras to monitor the flow of traffic and make adjustments to signal timing. For the first time, the Modesto Police Department has the capability to tap into those cameras to help solve crimes and investigate accidents.

The City Council last month approved the purchase of equipment that will record the feeds of the city’s 37 traffic cameras and give access through an Internet-based system for viewing. Chief Galen Carroll said the Police Department has the equipment and expects it will be up and running in 30 to 60 days
