An arrest is appropriate, but if the facts stand as reported, the lads performed a public service and a jury might well give them the Gary Plauche sentence (seven-year suspended sentence with five years' probation and 300 hours of community service for the shooting and received no prison time - Louisiana jury, 1984, Baton Rouge airport shooting.)

If they were black, they'd be out on no bail already and probably not even charged.

Gonna be tough getting a jury on this on.
Plus, if they do time, everybody in the prison will treat them like heroes. Took Out The Trash!
I predict the DA offering some preposterous plea deal, to avoid jury nullification. (I does happen in Texas. "Yeah he's guilty, but we don't think he did anything wrong. Not Guilty.)

In parts of our urban areas it appears there is a small, one-sided guerrilla race war underway and you are considered a combatant if you are white. Pretending it isn't there won't change anything.
[FoxNews] The gunman caught on video opening fire inside the emergency room of a New York City hospital has been taken into custody after police discovered he wrote his name in the facility’s sign-in book, reports say.
Keber Martinez, 25, of the Bronx, now faces attempted murder, reckless endangerment and criminal possession of a firearm charges stemming from the shooting that unfolded Tuesday at Jacobi Medical Center, according to the New York Police Department.
Police told Fox5 NY that Martinez wrote his name in the Bronx hospital’s sign-in book, making it easier for investigators to track him down. He was arrested late Tuesday night.
In a statement, the NYPD said they responded to the hospital midday Tuesday after receiving a 911 call about a person being shot inside there.
"Upon arrival Police discovered a 35-year-old male with a gunshot wound to the arm," the statement read. "The victim was immediately treated by medical personnel on location."
Police say Martinez got into a verbal dispute with the victim before discharging "several rounds."
The victim, who has not been identified, is expected to survive. He and Martinez also are believed to have known each other, according to ABC7.
The entire incident was captured on hospital surveillance cameras, showing calm in the waiting room before the gunfire erupted.
Martinez is familiar to police as he has had six prior arrests, the most recent being in May 2020 for charges of assault, drugs, grand larceny and criminal possession of a weapon, ABC7 reported.
[FoxNews] The Alabama man who has denied allegations that he fed meth to an attack squirrel at his home will reportedly face additional charges—delaying his trial.
Mickey Joel Paulk, 39, was scheduled to appear in court next week to face charges of possession of a wild animal, stolen property and possession of a weapon by a felon after his initial arrest in June 2019, AL.com reported.
The bizarre case started in 2019, when deputies raided his Athens home and said they found meth, ammunition and body armor. The paper reported that they also claimed to have found the squirrel and released it into the wild. Limestone County deputies said they were told that Paulk fed the animal meth but said there was no safe way to test the animal, the report said.
Paulk was not home during the raid. Ronnie Reynolds, who was allegedly inside the home at the time, was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and loitering at a known drug house, WBRC reported.
Paulk was arrested following a manhunt. He will now appear in court on Feb. 28, court documents show.
Paulk was arrested in December stemming from other drug offenses, AL.com reported.
[Courier & Press] EVANSVILLE, Ind. — Allen Sanderson, who flew 118 missions in an Evansville-made P-47 Thunderbolt during World War II and later became a staunch supporter of the Evansville Wartime Museum, has died. He was 99.
The native of Roanoke, Virginia, moved to Evansville in the late 1950s and had a 35-year career with the company formerly known as American General Finance. He was involved with Hadi Shrine for 50 years, as well as several other organizations.
Establishing the local war museum, though, was Sanderson's great passion. Given his life story, it's easy to understand why.
[FOX] The Navy has used Washington state coastal parks for over 30 years for SEAL cold water training and other special operations exercises, with leaders saying the area offers the perfect environment to simulate what the elite forces may encounter on difficult operations overseas.
"This area provides a unique environment of cold water, extreme tidal changes, multi-variant currents, low visibility, complex underwater terrain, climate and rigorous land terrain, which provides an advanced training environment," Navy spokesman Joe Overton told Coffee or Die Magazine.
But the Navy's use of Washington shoreline has recently come under fire from local residents who are concerned about both the physiological and environmental impact the SEAL training can have on others using the parks.
"I do not care to catch a glimpse of apparently armed men skulking around and I DEFINITELY do not want to risk having my young grandchildren see such a sight," a resident wrote to state regulators during a public comment period while the state was attempting to renew its agreement with the Navy.
Other residents expressed similar concerns, arguing that the parks are supposed to serve as a place to relax for residents.
"In these days of great division in our civil society, we don’t need stealthy men in camo uniforms toting toy guns around our State and County Parks," another commenter said. "People frequent parks to escape tension, not to encounter more. Keep the Navy commando training out of our parks!"
Another commenter expressed concerns over UAVs, arguing, "The Navy’s plan is to use larger, gasoline-powered UAV’s as well as smaller, electric-powered types. This offers significant potential for direct and indirect injury to birds as well as auditory disruption to the experience of park visitors."
While the Covid pandemic could come to an end at some point this year, the long-term effects of the virus will linger
'Long Covid' is a mysterious yet surprisingly common condition where someone feels effects of Covid long after infection - sometimes to a debilitating effect How common? Hard numbers needed.
With millions of Americans having contracted Covid in recent weeks, and up to 30% of them likely to develop long Covid, it could be a massive issue
One expert, Dr Leonard Jason, warns that the condition can disrupt the every day life of millions and hurt society as a whole
Another, Dr Noah Greenspan, warns that the world's current Covid situation puts it in 'deep trouble'
Could, may and up to? Someone is having fun panicking. Also, given that this is only the second year that Covid-19 has been out in the wild, our precious Long Covid specialists need at least three more years of data before they can come up with a reliable prognosis.
Yes. Along with the Lyme Disease people and the Morgellons Syndrome people and the neuromyalgia people. In the future we will all be disabled for 15 minutes.

Sounds like the symptoms of anxiety and depression.
Dr Leonard Jason (pictured), psychology professor at Depaul University that works with long Covid patients, warns the condition can disrupt the lives of millions, though he is optimistic effective treatments for the condition will be developed over time
Is this why I am seeing ads for medications which address the side effects of mental health medications?
Long Covid looks an awful lot like a variety of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. CFS most often is triggered by an immune system overreaction to an infection — any infection. According to the NIH
Studies have given a current prevalence rate ranging from 0.007% to 2.8% in the general adult U.S. population and from 0.006% to 3.0% in the primary care population.
Whether or not Long Covid is eventually included as CFS depends on whether most cases resolve within a year or so, within three years, or never. If within a year, it’s just a slow healing version of Covid, if within three it’s a benign version of CFS, if never — typical CFS.
[JustTheNews] Former President Donald Trump will be joined by eight speakers, including candidates he has endorsed, at his rally Saturday in Conroe, Texas.
The all-day event will feature five pro-Trump officials running for reelection in Texas: Gov. Greg Abbott, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, Attorney General Ken Paxton, Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller and Montgomery County Judge Mark Keough.
Additional speakers include State Sen. Dawn Buckingham, who is running for Texas Land Commissioner and Gonzales Mayor Connie Kacir, who will primary the incumbent Republican Gonzales County Judge according to The Gonzales Inquirer. Texas GOP Chairman Matt Rinaldi will also be at the Save America Rally.
The rally seeks to continue "President Trump's unprecedented
effort to advance the MAGA agenda by energizing voters and highlighting America First candidates and causes," the announcement reads.
"Really big crowd expected in Texas this weekend," Trump said on Monday. "The rallies are bigger than ever before–so much to talk about!"
The former President's last rally was held in Arizona and featured nine speakers, including three members of Congress.
[Breitbart] Mexican authorities revealed the shooting of three Canadians at a luxurious resort in the Mayan Riviera is linked to an apparent organized crime dispute. One of the fatal victims was a relative and alleged money launderer for a top Vietnamese mafia leader operating in Canada.
The shooting took place Friday afternoon at a luxurious resort in Mexico’s Mayan Riviera, approximately 40 miles from Cancun, where a lone gunman approached three Canadian tourists and shot them before making an escape. Two died from their injuries.
In the days after the shooting, the Quintana Roo Attorney General’s Office identified one of the victims as Robert James Dinh, a Canadian citizen wanted on money laundering charges. According to Mexican authorities, Dinh is a blood relative of Cong Dinh, a man identified as a top leader in the Vietnamese mafia operating in the U.S. and Canada. In 2019, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police offered a $50,000 reward for Cong Dinh and identified his organization as a major player in the Canadian drug trade with ties to Mexico, Australia, California, and Vietnam, the Vancouver Sun reported.
Mexican authorities also revealed the murder was planned since an unknown individual delivered the firearm to the gunman. Both of those individuals remain at large.
In recent months, Caribbean resort areas including Cancun, Tulum, and Playa Del Carmen have seen a rise in violence as rival organizations fight for control of the local drug trade and routes into Mexico. While most of the violence takes place away from tourist hotspots, there have been recent cases where gunmen clashed near hotels and high-profile destinations. In some cases, tourists were killed.
(AmericanProsperity.com) — Once a national security advisor to former President Donald Trump, Michael Flynn is a retired Army Lieutenant General who recently gave his opinion on the continuing Ukraine conflict. With neither side budging, Flynn issued a grim warning, asserting that hundreds of millions of people could die as a result of the escalating situation.
Lt. Gen. Flynn mentioned how things are going between Russia, Ukraine, NATO, and the United States; war may be inevitable. The former national security advisor noted that American people are essentially in the dark, with the media only telling the public what they want them to hear. The retired general offered a unique opinion in The Western Journal’s recent exclusive.

[REGNUM] The initiative to recognize the DPR and LPR, coming from the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, has been agreed three times with the only person in Russia in whose hands the strategy is, President Vladimir Putin , said the leader of the movement "The Essence of Time," Sergey Kurginyan on the air of the author's program "The Meaning of the Game" on the movement channel in YouTube.
The strategic problems of war and peace, the management of tensions between countries, for example, Ukraine and Russia, in the Russian Federation are handled by one person - the President of Russia and Supreme Commander Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin. He is alone. Not the State Duma, not some departments, not separate elite groups, the political scientist said.
According to him, Putin, of course, listens to the information provided to him by one or another competent source, as well as some opinions of a very narrow circle of people who are involved in these issues, after which he can easily say to all these people in the spirit of Chapaev from the film of the same name: "About everything you said here, do not care and forget, listen to what I say," which has already happened more than once.
"Accordingly, I have a question about what certain types of actions mean, carried out as if in anticipation of something else. For example, we are well aware that on such important issues, and I don’t see anything wrong with that, the Communist Party faction in the State Duma will be completely silent when it comes to war and peace, tension, and everything else. So, if it nonetheless puts forward an initiative like recognizing the LNR, DNR, then it is related to something.
She does this not because she wants to, or because it will increase her popularity among the people. Onaya agrees to this five times before doing something like that, ”Korginyan said.
But even if this is an eccentric behavior of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, not coordinated with the highest authorities, and no more than that, according to the expert, is completely excluded, then she would have been given a short sentence, after which she would have immediately shut up.
But this was not carried out. Therefore, taking into account the soft support for this decision in the State Duma, we are talking about thrice coordinated actions. And there can be no other understanding of this plot, the political scientist added.
WASHINGTON, Jan 26 (Reuters) - U.S. State Department spokesperson Ned Price said on Wednesday the Nord Stream 2 pipeline between Russia and Germany will not move forward if Russia invades Ukraine.
"I want to be very clear: if Russia invades Ukraine one way or another, Nord Stream 2 will not move forward," Price told NPR. "I'm not going to get into the specifics. We will work with Germany to ensure it does not move forward." How is this clear if we don't know the specifics? For that matter what does 'go forward' mean since I thought all the construction was done and the pipeline was being pressurized.

So where will the gas come from this winter, pray tell?
America was ready and willing to supply Europe with all the gas they needed. We have so much it gets burned off as a waste product in our oilfields. Europe has tons of money from the massive trade surpluses they run with us and could easily afford it.
Instead, they told us to go fuck ourselves and got in bed with Russia. Can someone tell me why we're still allied with them? Europeans are adversaries, plain and simple.
How much gas did Nordstream 2 supply last winter?
Its function is to bypass Ukrainian pepelines and its transit fees.
US natural gas price is $4.42/MMBtu at the Henry Hub Louisiana (price was about $2.00 in 2020). (Say thank you to Biden and this commie puppeteers.
EU gas price is €92.10($103.90)/MWhr. It takes 3.41MMBtus to equal 1MWhr, so US gas is $15.07 vs $103.90 in Europe. The US should be supplying much of Europe's gas needs, cratering the price and still making a windfall profit.
[Washington Examiner] The Federal Reserve has signaled that the first interest rate hike in years is on the horizon as it moves to leave its pandemic crisis posture and limit inflation.
The Federal Open Market Committee released its decision Wednesday after a two-day monetary policy meeting. The central bank said in a statement that "it will soon be appropriate to raise" its interest rate target.
Bond markets reacted to Wednesday's announcement by raising the implicit odds of a rate hike in March to 95%.
Economists and investors have been eagerly awaiting news on when the central bank will decide to start raising rates from the near-zero level they have been at since the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The last time interest rates were hiked was in 2018.
The Fed also announced Wednesday that its asset-purchasing program will end at the beginning of March.
I was in the markets and remember when you could get short term commercial paper from a decent company for an 18% annualized return. T-bills were above 12 and 10 yr t-bonds were over 10 at one point. Paul Volker and the Fed fixed rampant inflation with draconian speed. These mopes under Yellen et al are just mouthing political theater for the press. 1/4 is an insulting joke to fix the results of our Venezuelan monetary policy ...
NMBS, that was before our UniParty hit upon their miraculous policy of Serial Asset Bubbles stoked by a lax Fed and deficits as far as the eye can see.
Productivity's been falling since 1970. Even the supposed digital tech / computer-driven increases in the late 1990s were illusory. Per Robert Gordon's research, nearly all the really big breakthroughs occurred from 1870-1930 or so.
Allison Nathan (Goldman Sachs): Why has productivity growth stalled?
Robert Gordon (Northwestern U.): Let me put this in perspective. For the total economy, productivity growth was 2.7% from 1920 to 1970, 1.6% from 1970 to 1994, 2.3% from 1994 to 2004 during what we call the dotcom era, and just 1.0% from 2004 to the second quarter of 2015. So the productivity growth of the last 11 years was not only slower than in the dotcom era, but even slower than in the so-called slowdown period beginning in the early 1970s.
The reason for the slowdown after 1970 is straightforward: we simply exhausted the productivity benefits of prior innovations.
In the late 19th century, hugely important “general purpose” technologies, like electricity and the internal combustion engine, were invented. Then there were major developments in entertainment and communication in the form of the telephone, telegraph, radio, motion pictures and television. We made major breakthroughs in health. And we vastly improved working conditions.
All of that came together between 1920 and 1970. The last three spin-offs of the great inventions— interstate highways, commercial air travel, and air conditioning in most businesses—were also largely complete by 1970. So at that point we had run through the productivity payoffs.
We have also now run through the payoffs of the digital revolution that followed. Between 1980 and 2005 there was a total transformation of business practices from paper and filing cabinets to flat screens and search engines. But that transition is over. And the temporary revival of productivity during the dotcom era was uniquely concentrated in a very short span, with remarkably few gains in productivity growth since.
We’re using software and computers now that are very similar to the ones we used ten years ago. So it is no surprise that productivity growth has been slower over this decade.
Stuff is icky. We should be on a metaverse economy where you can own real estate that doesn't exist and go to your imaginary job and be paid in ZuckCoins (they just cancelled that project.) Really. Let the people who believe in that abandon the real world. It will leave more of everything for the rest of us...

[Free Beacon] The U.S. trade deficit topped $1 trillion for the first time last year, according to Market Watch.
The deficit jumped from $893.5 billion in 2020—the nation's previous record—to $1.08 trillion in 2021. The United States' economic recovery from the coronavirus pandemic has outpaced other nations, spurring increased demand. But Americans have tended toward buying more foreign goods as U.S. businesses have struggled with supply chain shortages caused by worker illness due to COVID-19 as well as government-imposed restrictions and mandates.
During a marathon press conference last week, President Joe Biden credited his administration with having fixed supply chain disruptions brought on by the pandemic.
"I often see empty shelves being shown on television," Biden said. "Eighty-nine percent are full, which is only a few points below what it was before the pandemic."
But supply chain issues are still being reported, especially in the auto industry, where new car sales still lag their pre-pandemic levels. Manufacturers reported about 15 million new vehicle sales in 2021—2 million less than the year before the pandemic.
This is deliberate enemy action by our elites. If they wanted, they could bring back the jobs in an instant. But they don't want to because that would benefit us. Instead we get to finance the rest of the world's development - and all we get for it in return is zero thanks and the contempt of everyone.
The keys to high profit margins are lower production costs and pay. The globalist oligarchs are in control. China is their vehicle. But I suspect you already knew that. It's the doing something about it that is difficult.
Trade deficits matter. There is an old [ethnic] joke: "Three [insert ethnic label] merchants are shipwrecked on a desert island with one hat. The sun burns fiercely so ...montage... 'after ten years of trading the hat they were all rescued as millionaires!'"
TL/DR: at some point to make Real wealth you need to produce a Real product. Wealth and 'money' are two different things.

Insanity. Capital investment here to rebuilt the lost industrial base, stop the invasion of penniless, ignorant, welfare recipients-to-be by the millions to flood the nation, re-embrace the Monroe Doctrine and accept we are not the America of 1967, either culturally or financially. By the grace of God and the efforts of those who built America, we have two oceans and a tiny border at the bottom of the continent. Time to fix ourselves the the mess below the border, and let the rest of the world act like sovereign nations responsible for their own welfare. We are dangerously close to losing it....
and says anti-Semitic abuse will NOT be tolerated
This is an ongoing thing in England, so clearly it is being tolerated. Also beatings of native Englishmen, regardless of faith or lack thereof, because being accused of racism is worse than arresting the vicious colonizing scum who enjoy indulging themselves in this way.
The beating is really just a hook to hang the the story of a leading English politician posturing. Illegal immigrant entries have increased on Minister Patel’s watch as well, contrary to promises made by her and PM Boris Johnson.
I guess Austin is late to the table because he is focused on the purging of white supremicists from the military, creating a "woke" military and getting everyone 100% vaccinated with more and more questionable vaccines. Sad.
I'm thinking that if we are worth the shit we talk, back when that Russian atomic ram jet skipped off the ocean these missiles were approved for design and 90% completion, using as many off the shelf warhead parts possible, and that space sled to pilot car some real world variables.
However it is, IIRC the Russians sortied their subs after the US changed its stance into aggressive accusation. In fact, the drumbeat sounds a lot like McCain and His Heroes.
[Breitbart] An activist in Germany has reportedly used AirTags, a mass-market GPS tracking device developed by Apple, to identify a secret arm of German intelligence.
Activist Lilith Wittmann suspected that a mysterious German agency called the "Federal Telecommunications Service," of which little is publicly disclosed, actually belonged to the country’s intelligence services. Wittman then utilized a novel method to discover the truth.
By mailing an AirTag to the innocuously-named federal telecoms authority and then tracking it via GPS, the activist was able to observe that the device ended up at the Office for the Protection of the Constitution, the federal domestic intelligence agency of Germany.
Reported cases of COVID-19/22 in the last 7 days= 4,498,817.
So roughly 0.04324% of the total US Population was infected in the last 7 days.
Roughly about 1 in 2,312.67 persons.
Using the new CDC death counting guidelines.
There were roughly 14,444 COVID-19/22 deaths.
So this equals approximately 0.321% of the 4,498,817 infected population died.
Or about 1 in 31,152.64 infected of of the 1 in 2,312.67 did not survive.
COVID-19/22 VACCINE DATA
Experts estimate that in the U.S., 70% of the population — more than 200 million people — would have to recover from COVID-19 to halt the pandemic. It is estimated roughly 251,000,000+ people or 76% of the US population have received at least one dose of the Covid-19/22 Vaccine. But are told now we still haven't reached Covid-19 Herd immunity.
Maybe this figure more what they need to be 70%. Overall, roughly 211,000,000+ people or 65% of the population have been now fully vaccinated and have boosters.
Among all Covid-19/22 vaccine recipients, 66.6% reported at least one systemic reaction in the 7 days after vaccination. The frequency and severity of systemic adverse events was higher after dose 2 than dose 1. Fatigue, headache, chills, and new or worsened muscle pain were most common.
US Cardiologists are reporting a huge spike in heart inflammation cases after vaccination to the American Heart Association (AHA). The warning to the AHA is clear: "Patients had a 1 in 4 risk for severe problems after the vaccines, compared to 1 in 9 before."
There no excuses for incorrect or bad data when posting to the RANT BURG or any Website that feeds 1000's of users information. (I will feed the RB Penalty Kitty)
MY CORRECTED 1-25-2022 FIGURES
Using "https://percentagecalculator.net/" as my calculator.
Using a USA Population of about 334,045,943.
According to the 1-25-22 provided data, over the last 7 days in the USA 4,498,817 were infected. Which equaled about 1.34% of the US population was said to have been infected??
Of the 4,498,817 infected, we are told about 14,444 died over the same 7 Day period. While we know, not all of the infections relate to the same deaths. It provides something of a running Infection to Death average. So we have something like a 0.321% +/- Death/Infection morbidity rate over the last 7 days.
A wider view of Daily Deaths in the USA.
According to CDC and other sources, on any given day in the USA about 7,300+/- people die for collection of reason in the USA. The daily Covid-19/22 average for 1-25-22 was about 2,063.42. vs. the US normal daily death rate of about 7,300 which is still about 2.53 X higher than Covid-19/22.
