A business owner takes the law into his own hands and holds a suspected crook at gunpoint until police arrive. The suspect was allegedly breaking into cars at a business complex on North Cascade.
No, you moron with a press pass. The guy DIDN'T take the law into his own hands. The suspect was not tried, sentenced and executed. He was merely inconvenienced for a time.
There is a huge difference between what really happened and "takes the law into his own hands". If you can't understand that difference who let you out without a babysitter?
Just after midnight, something strange was going on outside the businesses. "He had taken a transformer off of Roger's truck and was beating on a car window. That was thumping noise I heard," Kristi Lyons told 11 News.
Her husband, Mike, grabbed his gun and ran outside. They knew there was an intruder when they saw the plastic window on their car sliced open.
Kristi said the suspect was caught red-handed, hiding behind and underneath cars in the parking lot.
"Mike had him at gunpoint. He said, ‘We can do this the easy way or the hard way.’ I called police." She was on the phone for about 5 minutes while she watched Mike go after the suspect.
"Mike had the kid at gunpoint. He started advancing toward Mike with a knife and Mike fired off a shot to let him know that he wasn’t kidding."
Police arrested 24-year-old Richard Richardson.
I respect Fits' assessment of warning shots. If you need to pull the trigger it should be the warning to your attacker that he has just bought his final ticket to hell. He had a whole string of second chances before meeting up with you. You don't owe him one more.
"I wish he would've shot the guy," said Lisa Yunker who owns the business next door. She said the row of businesses has been broken into several times. “Everyone is sick of it, this whole complex. We don't know why we're targeted."Probably because the cops aren't watching your place despite the repeated crimes. Crooks are lazy or they wouldn't BE crooks and if they get away with stealing at a place they'll keep coming back until someone stops them.
I know the guy should have been shot, but not for stealing. For advancing on an armed citizen. Stupidity should be fatal.
I think Kristi's husband should be very glad he has such a good woman backing him up!
For now, everyone who works there thinks of Kristi's husband as a hero. Kristi told 11 News she’d do it all over again if another intruder came onto her property, but “With a bigger gun."
Richard Richardon is behind bars charged with criminal mischief, trespassing and assault. Police said they had been looking for him earlier in the night for allegedly attacking a kid with a baseball bat.
As to the cops "looking for" this guy for beating up a kid with a baseball bat, WHY DIDN'T YOU FIND HIM FIRST? He seems to have had all kinds of time to go and steal what he was after.
The Democrat party revealed its true position. At least we got something out of the latest debate debacle.
With Joe Biden insulting a voter for asking for protection against unconstitutional assaults on our liberties and the applause he was rendered he has just signed his most important act in all these years of being a Presidential wannabe.
He has handed the Republicans the keys to the Whitehouse and Congress in 2008.
If they have the guts to pick them up.

Now the Democrats hold both the House and Senate and again poor, poor Cindy is getting arrested! Must be that evil George W. Bush and his neo-con fascists!
Wait a minute, Mabel. She wasn't near George W. Bush. She wasn't near Crawford. She wasn't near the White House.
No, this time she got arrested in John Conyer's office.
I hear you asking, as do I, how can this be? Aren't the Democrats the very soul of honest and integrity? Don't they always deliver what they promise? They are so unlike those evil Republicans.
Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan was arrested Monday at the Capitol for disorderly conduct, shortly after saying she would run against Democrat's refusal to try to .
Well, here it is happening. Not a Bush in sight and St. Cindy of Crawford is being led away.
"Impeachment is not a fringe movement, it is mandated in our Constitution. Nancy Pelosi had no authority to take it off the table," Sheehan told her group of orange-clad activists before they began their march from the national cemetery.What's the matter, Cindy? Didn't Nancy do what she promised you she'd do? I guess Nancy was busy trying to figure out how to exempt her campaign contributors from the raise in minimum wage she promised to deliver.
Conyers introduced a bill last term calling on Congress to determine whether there are grounds for impeaching Bush. Pelosi has steadfastly dismissed any talk of impeachment, saying Democrats should focus their efforts on ending the war in Iraq.Well, Cindy, you got a bill to be introduced, then stabbed to death on the floor of the House by (gasp!) another woman. Why, only MEN can be so cruel and calloused toward a grieving mother! That's leftist gospel! If that's untrue then what part of the left's house of cards is standing?

In this one the wounded Union soldiers have been evacuated to Mound City, IL where they are in a military hospital.
The scene revolves around a visit by a couple of U.S. Senators on a fact finding mission.
The first testimony they elicit is from a black soldier about the behavior of Confederates after the fall of Fort Pillow.
The soldier mentions the murder of unarmed black soldiers by Confederates but also mentions Confederate officers trying to halt the murder.
He is told in no uncertain terms that the visitors don't want to hear anything at all about Confederates trying to prevent butchery. The message is understood by the rest of the soldiers and no one else offers up testimony that mentions anyone attempting to stop the slaughter of unarmed men.
What this brings to mind for me is the way the mainstream media behaves today as opposed to how they behaved in times past.
Can you imagine winning WWII if the U.S. press had not mentioned German and Japanese atrocities? If they had played up or even invented atrocities committed by U.S. forces?
Can you imagine the result of the Civil War if Union atrocities were played up in the northern press and Confederate atrocities allowed to slide under the radar?
Today we have a media which completely ignores atrocities committed by Muslims, unless those Muslims are supposed allies of the U.S. "Palestinians" or Lebanese rockets landing in Israel is glossed over. Israel targeting true military targets are portrayed as war mongers.
No one in the U.S. has avoided hearing of Abu Gharaib. Yet how many mentions in the mainstream press exist about the slaughter of Iraqi civilians, many children, by the "insurgents"? Michael Yon is the lone voice in the wilderness telling the truth while tales of wholesale destruction and atrocity by U.S. forces or those aligned with them get reported ad nauseum.
The United States is being handicapped in the war against Islamic fascists by our own media and the Democrat party, their political allies.
I would have no issue with the mainstream media if it deal with atrocities from both sides equally. Instead the forces of the Muslim horde are given a free pass to murder, rape, loot, steal and shit in the living room while forces of Israel and the U.S. are humiliated, denigrated and sabotaged at every turn, even when they remember to say "please" and "thank you" when exchanging bullets with armed terrorists.
There is no fair and balanced view. Not on Fox. Not on PBS. Not on CNN.
And even if our side did lead the race to commit atrocities do you know what?
I don't care.
They are OUR side and I want them to WIN. Loosing isn't optional. It won't mean a small inconvenience, it will mean continued war against a people that seek to destroy and/or enslave my nation.
If we have to beat them by being nastier sons of bitches than the people we are fighting then so be it.
It's where their porn stash is located.
This came after the earlier news story that these laptops had been delivered to school buildings with no electricity in them.
Maybe if we'd sent these kids low-tech education they'd spend less time searching for porn and more time learning history, science, art, literature and mathematics. You know, books. Those things that they used to use in schools in this country. You don't need electricity to use them. They don't connect to the Internet and they helped humankind learn for a long time.

For those who haven't read his other works Turtledove is real historian who branched into writing science fiction and fantasy. While his professional area of history is the Byzantine Empire he has a passion for the events of the Civil War.
He's visited it so many times from so many angles I half expect him to appear in portraits alongside Lee or Grant, or both together.
It was in the latest book that I'm reading that I ran across a passage that has real meaning in today's world. I don't know if Turtledove was incorporating thoughts of past soldiers later entered on paper or if he was thinking of today when he wrote it.
"What can we do about it?" Anderson echoed. "Keep fighting the Yankees as hard as we can. Keep licking them. Keep making them sweat. Keep making them bleed. Abe Lincoln is up for reelection this fall. If we make the North decide the war is more expensive than it's worth, if we make it decide the war is more goddam trouble than it's worth, they'll throw Lincoln that son of a bitch out on his ear. Whichever Democrat they put in will make peace and send the bluebellies home. And we'll have our own country then. That's what we can do, by God."Though there are references and slang that are particular to the time and place, the thoughts are the same. This is the mind of the enemy we face today in Iraq.
"I understand, sir." Ward looked respectfully at the officer, who wasn't that much older than he was. "I really do understand. When I joined up, I did it so I could fight the damnyankees."
"Who doesn't?" Anderson said.
"Yes, sir. But that was all I thought about, you know what I mean? What you said, I didn't think about that even a little bit. How the war and politics fit together, I mean. And they do. They truly do."
"You'd best believe they do," Charles Anderson agreed. "Way things are no, we won't ever drive the United States off our land with guns. Maybe we could have once upon a time, but we lost too many chances. But if we can make those Yankee bastards sick of fighting us, they'll give up and go home. And we win that way, too. So that's what we've got to try and do."
They can not win any battle. Lee won more battles than any Iraqi ever got close to winning. In the book the two characters are both Confederates discussing the war after they finished winning one small battle of the Civil War, Fort Pillow.
The Iraqi insurgents can't win battles. Nor can the Iran or Saudi backed terrorists from outside win any battles. We win all the battles, yet our politicians keep talking about the "price" of this war.
The United States stood firm against defeat in a war that cost HUNDREDS of times the lives we have lost in Iraq. This at a time when our national population was only a tiny fraction of what it is today. On the battlefields armies nearly equaling the size of our total deployment in Iraq fought.
The cost to our nation then was staggering. Both in lives and money our nation hemorrhaged like no other time in all its history during the Civil War.
Why, suddenly, are we so hesitant to do unto those who attacked us on 9/11/01 what we did to those who shot at Fort Sumter? May I remind the ladies and gentlemen of the Left that when the South fired on Fort Sumter there was no loss of life. On 9/11/01 there were 3,000 dead, all civilians. People like you.
Get past your hatred of George W. Bush. Get past your clinging to "he lied" speeches. What we face now is far, far worse than letting the South break away from the Union. The Confederates weren't going to be coming to Chicago and forcing blacks into slavery who had never been slaves. Al Qaeda will.
But you can trust that if we do not halt the Islamic terrorists we will be having Muslims enslave those of us who are not. Literally.
Remember the fictional conversation between those two Confederates. That is how those we fight are thinking. If they can just hold on until a Democrat gets into the Presidency then they can finally win. They will have their own country.

Here is a guy who came over with his family in the 1950s from Germany. He's a full citizen. He knows he's an immigrant and has NO PROBLEMS with IMMIGRANTS. What he doesn't like are ILLEGAL ALIENS. (The caps are there so that even morons from the media can see the truth.)
He had a second job working in a 7-11. He chose to work that as his second job to qualify for the dental care offered to employees.
When he wasn't working he wore a cap with the words "U.S. Border Patrol" on the front.
One night he was at his job and two men entered the store and in full view of the store's surveillance cameras threatened him with bodily harm and worse because of the cap he wears when he is NOT on the job.
After the threats these guys hang around (loitered) in front of the store then left sight. Shortly after the store employee went off duty and left the store someone fired 5 shots into the front of the store from the darkness, all aimed to where the employee had been standing during the threats and intimidation. The shots did not connect with anyone.
After the gunfire the store gave this man 7 days paid leave. When that was over they fired him. Over the phone.
Southland corporation is giving out false stories. Stories so false they won't go on the air since to do so would put them on record with stories they know wouldn't stand up if this man gets a lawyer to sue them.
Can anyone tell me, with a straight face, that if this man had been Latino, had worn a "La Rasa" ball cap and the threatening had been done by two white guys that the local police chief would be denying racism as a motive? I'd give $10.00 to the police chief if he could say that where a voice stress analysis machine could be used.
Here we have a racially motivated crime. The victim is white. The suspects Latino. Will these two men, captured on surveillance video, ever be caught? Will they ever be charged? No, you could bet your money that they will never be charged.
And the victim is out of his job because his employer doesn't want to piss off the illegal aliens.
For those not reading comments the 7-11 employee agreed to go on a polygraph, paid for by a Denver area talk radio station.
The results came from the polygrapher live on the air this morning. On the questions asked that the radio host and the polygrapher agreed to use this guy was judged to be telling the truth on every one of them.
What you can be sure of is that the Basalt, CO chief of police will NOT go on a polygraph to prove that HE is telling the truth. 7-11 is being mealy-mouthed, using that police chief's statements to stand by their decision to fire an employee.
BTW, this shooting occured 6/26/07. To date there has been no word of suspects questioned, let alone jailed for the five rounds fired through the front window of a 7-11 in which another clerk and five customers were present.

What we have here is a failure of pocket change. I've got $10.00 and want $10,000. No problem for Hillary Clinton and a little insider trading. Big problem for someone who works for a living.
Own an American masterpiece, a Browning M2 Heavy Barrel 50 caliber machine gun! Even better, own one that you aren’t required to have a Class 3 license! This M2 was professionally rebuilt by TNW firearms, Inc. with genuine GI parts, the full auto feature was disabled, and it is now a semi-automatic belt fed M2. This makes this gun an accurate 50 caliber rifle rather than just an expensive ammo drain. A picatinny scope rail is integral with the sight assembly, and with a scope this weapon can punch a pie plate group at 1000 yards. It did just that at the 2003 50 caliber World Championships. With ball ammo too!Don't remind me that I couldn't afford to feed this pet without starving the smaller critters.
This machine gun allows you to shoot as fast as you can pull the trigger. So if you like to make a lot of noise, you can do that too. You will just hit more of what you target.
The gun comes with an ATF approval letter, original M2 training manual, head spacing gauge, left and right hand feed, and a second barrel. Both barrels have had low use. You can’t buy one of these anymore from TNW, as the supply has dried up.
A full size (uncut) M3 tripod is matched to this gun.
