Dallas resident defends his home from three teens

 

by CRAIG CIVALE WFAA-TV News 8 DALLAS —

Two teenagers are in custody and a third is dead after an attempted break-in in southeast Dallas on Monday morning. Police said the suspects were betting on entering an empty house — not facing an armed homeowner.

Investigators said the three young people rang the front doorbell of Lee Cobler’s home in the 7300 block of Vallejo Drive. When no one answered, they went around the back and started trying to kick the door in. But Cobler, 51, was at home with an adult son. The son was on the phone with 911 when police said Cobler opened fire on the intruders, killing 14-year-old Luis Avila, a student at Hood Middle School. “He was able to make the right choice to protect his child,” said Shirley Starks, president of the local homeowners’ association.

“It was important, because he did not know that those — whoever was coming through that door — was not going to kill all of them.” Investigators are not saying that the teenagers were armed, but police were at Hood Middle School Monday afternoon interviewing students and offering counseling. Principal C.A. Williams sent out a letter to parents explaining that one of their students was killed in a burglary attempt.

“Our thoughts and prayers are obviously with the family and close friends of the student who is no longer with us,” she wrote. News 8 captured a video showing what’s believed to be one of the teenage suspects being arrested just a few blocks away from the shooting scene.

“It’s surprising like to see like kids — 13-year-old kids — like breaking in nowadays,” added Sarah Trevino, who was watching what happened. Residents in the Piedmont neighborhood have been on high alert after four burglaries in recent months, and Crime Watch officials said it was just a matter of time until something ended in a tragedy like this.

“This can happen to any child that is doing something like this,” Starks said. “Why weren’t the parents watching him to make sure that he wasn’t doing something like this, is my question.” Police have the two other suspects in custody, ages 13 and 14. They have been charged with attempted burglary. Police spokesman Sgt. Warren Mitchell said no charges have been filed against Cobler, but a grand jury will review the circumstances of the fatal shooting.

Where Are the Indictments of Obama’s Foreign Colluders?

The indictments are in.

Team Mueller indicted a bunch of Russians associated with a troll farm for interfering with an election in the United States. Russian troll farms generally don’t follow United States law. But foreigners are not allowed to interfere with elections in the United States. Unless they’re named Christopher Steele.

The Clinton campaign employed a British foreign agent who used Russian intelligence sources to put together opposition research meant to interfere with the results of a United States election. Collusion between the Clinton campaign, Steele and the Russians doesn’t require an endless fishing expedition.

Foreigners interfering in United States elections are not a new phenomenon. Muslims in Gaza famously ran a phone bank for Obama. A Hamas political adviser had declared that he hoped Obama would win.

There was no investigation. Nor did anyone indict the Gazans running the phone bank.

Flashback 30 Years: Guns Were in Schools … and Nothing Happened

 PJ Media

 

The millennial generation might be surprised to learn that theirs is the first without guns in school. Just 30 years ago, high school kids rode the bus with rifles and shot their guns at high school rifle ranges.

After another school shooting, it’s time to ask: what changed?

Cross guns off the list of things that changed in thirty years. In 1985, semi-automatic rifles existed, and a semi-automatic rifle was used in Florida. Guns didn’t suddenly decide to visit mayhem on schools. Guns can’t decide.

High school gun range 1985. “Obey instantly all firing line commands.”

We can also cross the Second Amendment off the list. It existed for over 200 years before this wickedness unfolded. Nothing changed in the Constitution.

That leaves us with some uncomfortable possibilities remaining. What has changed from thirty years ago when kids could take firearms into school responsibly and today might involve some difficult truths.

Let’s inventory the possibilities.

Nikolas Cruz was a member of a white supremacist group, and other liberal lies

 

Flopping Aces

I like to wait for the dust to clear before opining on events.  Not everyone does. The bodies of the victims of the Parkland shooting weren’t cold before democrats clawed their way to the front of TV cameras. A nice touch. Of course, obama had to be heard.

Left wing news outlets leaped at the report that Cruz was a member of a white nationalist group.

Time: Accused Parkland Shooter Nikolas Cruz Was a Member of white supremacist group Republic of Florida.

Just one problem. He is not a member of the Republic of Florida.

Local law enforcement sources have not found a connection between accused Parkland school shooter Nikolas Cruz and a Tallahassee-based paramilitary group.

Leon County law enforcement sources told the Tallahassee Democrat that they could not find information linking Cruz, 19, to the Republic of Florida Militia, as claimed by the group’s self-proclaimed leader Jordan Jereb.

His comments to the Anti-Defamation League and The Associated Press set off a media firestorm Thursday at about midday that Cruz was connected to the alt-right, white nationalist group.

Hours after news outlets around the nation reported Cruz’s alleged ties, Leon County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Grady Jordan told the Tallahassee Democrat investigative work did not yield any connections.

“We are still doing some work but we have no known ties between the ROF, Jordan Jereb or the Broward shooter,” Jordan said.

(Why would a white supremacist kill so many white people?)

The media was pranked and swallowed it whole.

The “leader” of the group, Jordan Jereb, explained it this way.

ABC News: There have already been 18 school shootings in the US this year: Everytown

WaPo: No, there haven’t.

What is true is that the FBI was tipped off about Cruz last year.

PARKLAND, Fla. (Reuters) – The Federal Bureau of Investigation was warned in September about an ominous online comment by the 19-year-old man accused of killing 17 people at his former high school but was unable to locate him, an agent said on Thursday.Authorities said the ex-student, identified as Nikolas Cruz, walked into the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, near Miami, on Wednesday and opened fire with an AR-15-style assault rifle in the second-deadliest shooting at a public school in U.S. history.

Unable to locate him? He was all over Instagram:

For the record, have a look at what the Republic of Florida is all about:

This sounds a lot more like Bernie Sanders than it does Sean Hannity.

And of course, the left blamed Trump.

Radical Islamic Scholar Hillary Let Back into U.S. as Sec. of State Jailed for Rape

JUDICIAL WATCH

 

The radical Islamic scholar that Hillary Clinton let back into the U.S. after a lengthy ban over terrorist ties is in jail on rape charges. This week a judge in France denied bail for Clinton’s pal, Tariq Ramadan, the grandson of Muslim Brotherhood founder and Hamas funder Hassan al Banna. Ramadan, a professor at Oxford University, was arrested in Paris last week and charged with raping two Muslim women. Both women were raped in France, according to a European news report. The first one, a 40-year-old disabled Muslim convert claims Ramadan raped and beat her in the southeastern city of Lyon in 2009 and the other, a 41-year-old feminist activist, says Ramadan raped her in Paris in 2012.

A respected Swiss newspaper, Tribune de Genève, has also reported that Ramadan seduced and had sexual relations with teenage girls at a Geneva school where he once taught. The women say Ramadan told them they were special before having sex with them in the back of his car. One of the women was 14 at the time and the others were 15 to 18 years old. They say Ramadan used his authority as their teacher to seduce them. Oxford University placed Ramadan on a leave of absence after the rape allegations surfaced as well as other accusations of assault and sexual harassment. Professor Ramadan’s teaching, supervising and examining duties will be reassigned, and he will not be present at the University or College,” reads a statement issued by Oxford in early November. “The University has consistently acknowledged the gravity of the allegations against Professor Ramadan, while emphasising the importance of fairness and the principles of justice and due process.”

As Barack Obama’s Secretary of State Clinton, a self-proclaimed women’s rights activist (her Hillary for America policy included confronting violence against women and has a section on sexual assault) went to bat for Ramadan. As part of an Obama administration effort to pursue a better relationship with Muslim communities, Clinton signed special orders to allow the reentry of two radical Islamic academics whose terrorist ties had for years banned them from the United States. One of them was Ramadan. As the nation’s chief foreign affairs adviser, Clinton exercised her exemption authority to allow Ramadan and South African sociologist Adam Habib, a critic of U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East, back into the country. The State Department had repeatedly denied their visa claiming the men present a national security threat.

Ramadan, one of the European Muslim world’s most prominent scholars, was the better known of the two. He openly supports the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas, has worked for Iran and donates money to terrorist causes. His grandfather founded the Muslim Brotherhood, an influential Islamist group that advocates terrorism against Israel and the west and is known as the parent organization of Hamas and Al Qaeda. A few months before Clinton approved his U.S. visa, a Dutch university fired Ramadan over his extremism and his work for the Islamic Republic of Iran. The move capped the beloved Muslim professor’s assessment that London subway bombers were justified in acting out against their oppressors because the “British government is helping Iraqi people to be killed.” A well-known French author who has studied Ramadan extensively said the scholar is undoubtedly an agent of radicalization.

Clinton’s special waiver allowed Ramadan to visit four American cities after being banned from the U.S. for six years. He arrived in New York for a tour that included New Jersey, Chicago, Detroit and Washington. Permitting the controversial scholar to enter the U.S. was part of a broader government mission to create a new and improved relationship-based on mutual interest and mutual respect-with Muslims around the world.
