Heckle Hustle - Crazy Wagon Part I | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it

"I seriously thought this was going to be a quiet week, after my rant on the Mixed Cheerios commercial, but I see the crazy wagon is on parade this week.  Let me make this disclaimer up front….I do not have a problem with the LGBT community.  I embrace their work like it’s my own, and I am glad that the LGBT community as a whole is being recognized for who they are. However, heckling Michelle Obama is where I will draw the line."

Marine killed after shooting rampage in Texas

Marine killed after shooting rampage in Texas | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it

"(CNN) -- A Marine based in North Carolina died during a gun battle with police in Texas after authorities said he killed one person and wounded five others in a shooting spree.

 

The Texas Department of Public Safety said the suspect, Esteban J. Smith, 23, was stationed at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. He was killed early Sunday when he exchanged gunfire with a state trooper and a game warden, police said.

 

Smith's death ended a shooting spree that had covered more than 80 miles and lasted more than two hours.

 

Authorities say Smith killed Alicia Torres, 41, in the town of Eola in Concho County. She was found dead in her car about 6 a.m.

 

He also shot one person in Eden at 4:30 a.m., two people in Brady, then went back to Eden where he wounded one other victim.

 

Smith shot a sheriff's deputy who came upon the suspect on the highway just north of Eden, police said.

 

State troopers and the game warden arrived on scene a short time later.

 

Two victims, including the deputy, Richard Doane, remain hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries. Three other people were treated at a hospital and released.

 

Authorities found an assault rifle, a handgun and hundreds of rounds of ammunition in Smith's pickup."

Community Village Sites's insight:

I wonder why CNN didn't put up a photo of the Marine?

Migration is Beautiful

Migration is Beautiful | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it


"Artist and co-founder of CultureStrike, Favianna Rodriguez, created the “Migration is Beautiful” butterfly image. “The butterfly symbol was not my idea. Immigrant rights activists have seen the butterfly as a symbol of fluid and peaceful migration for generations. To me, the monarch butterfly represents the dignity and resilience of migrants, and the right that all living beings have to move freely. I believe that we shouldn’t allow our identity to be defined only by our suffering, nor by the actions that others have taken to devalue our families and our labor — rather, let us celebrate our beauty, pride, and resilience in the face of inequality and injustice.”

Just 11 months into his job as a Los Angeles police officer, Sergio Arreola had a choice to make: resign or be fired.
Community Village Sites's insight:

It's said that we find what we are looking for (even if it's not there). 
Police are always "looking for trouble" so they can serve and protect.

Problem is, they tend to assume the worst and then situations escalate out of control.
