What? Guns Everywhere and No One Gets Shot???

The NRA convention has come and gone from my hometown, Indianapolis. The media gave it the predictable mixed bag coverage and now the grand debate on gun rights moves to another place and time. Meanwhile, the question that will go unasked, much less answered as the last Bible clinging, gun clutching right wing radical leaves the convention center isn’t what happened here, but what didn’t.

Blame the victim…Again.

Adrian Anthony is a resident of Indianapolis and he is sitting in the Marion County Jail. Mr. Anthony is 20 years old and his life’s potential is already pretty much gone. He is facing charges in connection with the fatal shooting of Robbie Gibson during a string of violent home invasions in the Indianapolis area.

Young Mr. Anthony is not the first, or the second or even the third suspect arrested in connection with this series of home invasions. In actual fact, he is the eleventh. Abhorrent as his conduct has been, it isn’t the most shocking thing about him. What IS most shocking is his attitude now that he has been captured.

Ricin Suspect Released, Feds Go Oops

Paul Kevin Curtis, the Ricin suspect, was released and the federal government has cleared him of all charges. The Mississippi Elvis impersonator and reflexology expert was arrested last week in connection with several letters mailed to public officials, including Barack Obama and Senator Roger Wicker, allegedly containing a form of ricin powder. FBI agent Brandon Grant testified in court that a search of Curtis′ home resulted in no traces of ricin being found, nor any chemicals or other materials needed to make the deadly poison. Curtis was pleased that the judge ordered his release and promised free foot massages for his attorney, Christi McCoy. The Justice Department claims that the investigation into the ricin mailings continues and that another suspect from Mississippi is being vetted.

Boston Bombing Suspect Dvhokhar Tsarnaev Condition Update

Here is the latest news on Boston bombing suspect Dvhokhar Tsarnaev and his medical condition. According to Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis, Tsarnaev is now awake and able to communicate in writing. However, he is still considered unfit for any interrogation and is still listed as being in ′serious but stable condition.′ There is also some speculation now that Tsarnaev′s throat wound may have been self-inflicted, perhaps an attempt to commit suicide to avoid being captured. Federal prosecutors have yet to file any official charges and the issue of the Boston Marathon bombing suspect being classified as an ′enemy combatant′ is still being considered. Justice Department officials do claim that even if Tsarnaev is classified as such, he will still face the usual legal system and be tried in Federal courts as opposed to military courts.

The Twisted World of Boston Bombing Suspects Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev

Now that the two Boston bombing suspects, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, have either been killed or captured, it is time to look at the how and why these two brothers went from being Chechen refugees to Islamic terrorists. Both were born in Kyrgzstan but the family later moved to the Muslim republic of Dagestan, along the southern border of Chechnya. In 2002, the family, or at least Dzhokhar and his mother, moved to the United States, granted political asylum by our State Department. The story of Tamerlan is more unclear. He may have arrived with his other family members to Cambridge, Massachusetts in 2002, or possibly later in 2004. Either way, Tamerlan returned to Dagestan at some point early on. He later returned there in the spring of 2012 and was out of the United States until mid-August of last year.

Boston Bombing Suspects Identified, 1 Dead, Manhunt for Other

Events are moving fast following a shoot-out with police in Watertown, Massachusetts and the Boston bombing suspects. Since the FBI released images and video of two men connected to the Boston Marathon bombings just after 5pm EDT, Thursday, quite a bit has happened, especially in the surrounding areas near Cambridge through Watertown some 9 miles west of M.I.T.. The whole Boston area is under a lockdown as a joint task force of Boston and local police, along with the FBI and other agencies conduct a door-to-door search for Suspect #2, also known as ′White Hat′, who has now been identified as Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaez, 19, who hails from either Chechnya or Turkey and has been in the United States for about a year along with his brother, Suspect #1, or ′Black Hat′, as Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26. As the situation is fluid and still unfolding, here is a timeline of manhunt events for what took place overnight, though some information may be corrected later.

Boston Marathon Explosions, 3 Dead and 144 Wounded in Terrorist Bombings

Two Boston Marathon explosions near the finish line erupted at 2:57pm EDT, killing 3 and wounding 144 others. The terrorist bombings took place at Copley Square on Boylston Street. Yesterday, the City of Boston celebrated Patriots Day with their annual marathon as well as other events. Police Commissioner Edward Davis described the bombs as ″powerful devices″ which detonated within seconds of each other about 100 yards apart near the marathon′s finish line. Barack Obama would not refer to the incident as a terrorist attack when he addressed the nation, but a ′senior White House official′ did tell reporters after that the incident was obviously terrorism. The Boston Marathon injury count currently stands at 144 wounded, with about 105 people still in hospitals. Of those, 17 are listed in critical condition and 25 in serious condition. Of the three known deaths, one was an 8-year old boy who had just hugged his father for completing the marathon before the carnage began.
