… Thank You , Moore v. Madigan [#gun rights]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,September 11th,2016

.. crime in Chicago is down , markedly …

.. don’t expect Mayor Rahm Emmanuel to take credit for the reason why …

.. concealed – carry …

.. [link] to the news report …

.. you can thank the court case Moore v Madigan for that . The loonie left is too damn scared to appeal it to the Supreme Court . You send this beauty up there , and it goes through , you in effect get nationwide concealed – carry . Boy , would the anti – gun crowd choke on this …

— [update] — the left , especially the anti – gun nuts ,  are scared to death of this case . You take this one , mix in another , say , Palmer v D.C. or Peruta v Cty of San Diego ,  and it goes to the U.S. Supreme Court . Especially if the 9th Circuit tries to play around with Peruta . Then all of those state – level and local – level gun restrictions [say , SAFE Act or Williams Act in NY is the best example] go bye – bye ….

… the Brelo Case [#the verdict]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,June 19th,2016

.. Officer Michael Brelo was found not guilty of voluntary manslaughter in the deaths of two Greater Clevelanders the other day ..

.. [h/t — Twitchy.com]..
.. [link] to the tweets / blog post ..

.. this case resulted from a police chase that started in downtown Cleveland . Two perpetrators took off in their car , and one hell of a lot of cops [more than a dozen] took off after them . They were chased eastward , towards the suburbs of East Cleveland and Euclid , and they were finally stopped by stop sticks …

.. what happened next is what has caused such an uproar . The police officers opened fire on the couple ,for whatever reasons I do not know . That couple was unarmed . Officer Brelo jumped up on the couple ‘ s car , and continued to fire at them . Both of them [the couple] died as a result of the altercation …

… Prosecutorial Discretion comes from [#the Law]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,February 27th,2016

.. the enforcement of the body of law ..

.. not just selectively . The body of law , generally , as a whole ..

.. [h/t — CBSWashingtonDC.com]..
.. [link] to the news story …

.. that includes deportation . The ObamaCraps have an obligation to deport each and every illegal alien that they can find . They also have a solemn obligation to go out and look for those illegals . That is in the law , as well as in the annual budget …

.. doing what POTUS is doing is clearly illegal . It is first and foremost in violation of the Anti – Deficiency Act , which prohibits the spending of public funds on actions and purposes not specifically [explicity or implicity] appropriated for and / or authorized for by Congress …

.. so , screw the damn legal basis , D.A.C.A. is not legally proper , and has not been authorized by Congress . It is not a legal program , not one damn bit . So , shut it down …

… Now What is the Ruckus [#Tamir Rice case]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,October 23rd,2015

.. plenty ..

.. as part of his decision – making process , Tim McGinty [the county Prosecutor] has engaged several outside experts to weigh in on the case . Whether he [as the prosecutor] decides to take the case to the grand jury , or makes the decision himself not to bring charges , he figures that the opinion of outside experts in the use of police powers and the use of force would be helpful …

.. well , he did . It is not as if McGinty is being a political chicken . McGinty is no fool , especially given the extremely high profile of this case . However , the more information that is available , the better . Even better yet , the information that is used in his decision – making process is being released . Normally , with a grand jury , it would not be . But in this case , a little demystification of the grand jury process is not such a bad idea ..

.. [h/t — DailyCaller.com]..
.. [link] to the blog article ..

.. so , what is all the ruckus ?? …

.. the outside experts have spoken . The Rice family does not like what these folks have said . What the experts have stated is that the two cops who responded to the public part exhibited a ” reasonable amount ” of force ..

.. what does that mean ? If the case goes to a grand jury [as is my guess] , the grand jury will not indict the two cops . They were reasonable in their use of force in shooting the young boy . They has good reason to think that the gun that young Tamir Rice has was a real gun . In addition , Rice drew on the cops . In any case involving the police , that is a really , really bad idea …

… Well , Now We Know [#Darren Wilson case]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,March 30th,2015

.. I honestly thought that police officer Darren Wilson might be charged with a crime . I was hoping that I was wrong , but I was not sure …

.. thankfully , I was wrong , Officer Wilson has been cleared in the Michael Brown case ..

.. I hope that the grand jury in the case issues a report . it would make for interesting reading , to be sure …

.. now what happens ?? Will the Federales decide to step in ? Given  the Holder – abused Department of InJustice , I would not bet against it . Holder and his flunkies will certainly try , if they think that they could get away with it …

— update — Patrolman Wilson was not indicted for any of his actions during the Michael Brown case . However , the holder Department  of InJustice has come down hard on the city of Ferguson , Mo for a lot of pablum and puke …

… the Michael Brown case is going to be a Difficult One [#grand jury]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,October 30th,2014

.. if this news report is to be believed …

.. granted , it is the New York Slimes . So , take it with a grain of salt (or two) …

.. but , it is obvious that Ptl. Darren Wilson was seriously injured by this perpetrator (Michael Brown) . Brown was the aggressor . He attacked Wilson in his patrol car . He head – butted him . He punched him several times . Also , the perpetrator went for the gun , and there was a struggle for it . The gun went off several times …

.. [h/t — NewYorkSlimes.com]..
.. [link] to the news story …

.. so , the grand jury is going to be presented with a very serious problem . Is a police officer to be stripped of his right and ability to defend himself , especially if the perpetrator is the aggressor , and seriously injures an officer . The officer should then be justified in using appropriate lethal force to bring the suspect to justice ….

.. — [update] — there has been more information that has leaked out . it makes patrolman Darrren Wilson ‘ s story a good bit more believable . It also serves to discredit many of the eyewitnesses to the shooting . The plot thickens ….

… It is Far More Important , Megan ! [investigating Ferguson case]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,September 12th,2014

..what happened in Ferguson , Mo , is a common , relatively ordinary police shooting ….

.. it is , most likely , NOT a federal case …

.. from most of the facts in , Micheal Brown provoked the attack on police officer Darren Wilson of the Ferguson PD . Brown and his ” friend ” were insolent and insulting , and then turned on and attacked Officer Wilson . So far , from the evidence , that is what I believe precipitated the shooting …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop.com]..
.. [link] to the interview segment …

.. anyone who attacks a police officer , either with a head butt or with a punch is asking to be shot at . The cop is injured . The perp starts to flee , and then turns , and charges at the officer . That is a prescription for getting your butt shot at multiple times …
