" No regrets." That's how Rick Rogers says he felt after he shot and killed 40 year old Kenneth Fry. Police say Fry and several others broke into Rogers' home early Saturday morning. " I would do it again," says Rogers. " If they do it again, I would do it again. You got to protect your family."
Rogers says his girlfriend, Chelsea St. John, and daughter-in-law were inside the home at the time. All intruders were armed. " I cant explain to you the feeling that that is," says St. John. She says when they realized that the men were in the house, Rogers went upstairs to grab his gun. She followed close behind until Fry got a hold of her. " He grabbed me by the back of my hair and pulled me back down and said "get on the floor, you know I will kill you." And I went to the kitchen and was going to get on the floor and he didn't even wait for me to get on the floor he took upstairs after Rick and that's when Rick shot him," says St. John. Rogers says he didn't think twice. "I was able to get my gun first and shoot one of them. The other 3 heard my shot and left out the back door. "
St. John says she was greatful for her boyfriends quick actions. " After Rick went chasing after the 3 that took off, I opened our door at the back and started hollering for somebody to call 911to get some help. The guy that was running came out from this bush right here it was still dark, almost starting to get daylight," says St. John.
Chelsea says much of that morning was a blur, but she says the eyes of the man hiding behind the bushes were hard to forget.
Fast forward to Sunday afternoon; Chelsea says she saw those eyes again. She says she saw two men walking nearby and believes one of them was among the intruders from Saturday morning. " I told the police the look that passed between us wasn't a look like "why are you looking at me. whats up?" The look was "yes, I know you and I know you know me and I will be back" and that is scary to me, that is very scary, "" says St. John.
When police arrived, the two men fled. Police chased the suspects on foot and caught one of them. The other one is still on the loose. Police believed the man barricaded himself in a home a couple houses down from Rogers'. No one was found inside the house but Police continued to canvas the neighborhood. Police can not confirm if this incident or the suspects are related to the home invasion. This investigation is currently on going.

The increase in police brutality in this country is a frightening reality.
In the last decade alone the number of people murdered by police has reached 5,000. The number of soldiers killed since the inception of the Iraq war, 4489.
What went wrong? In the 19070’s SWAT teams were estimated to be used just a few hundred times per year, now we are looking at over 40,000 military style “knock and announce” police raids a year.
The police presence in this country is being turned into a military with a clearly defined enemy, anyone who questions the establishment. If we look at the most recent numbers of non-military US citizens killed by terrorism worldwide, that number is 17.
You have a better chance of being killed by a bee sting, or a home repair accident than you do a terrorist. And you are 29 times more likely to be murdered by a cop than a terrorist!

On the Way to Gestapo LandPublished July 9, 2014 | By Lew Rockwell
It’s vogue, trendy and appropriate to look to dystopian literature as a harbinger of what we’re experiencing at the hands of the government. Certainly, George Orwell’s 1984 and Animal Farm have much to say about government tyranny, corruption, and control, as does Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World and Philip K. Dick’s Minority Report. Yet there are also older, simpler, more timeless stories—folk tales and fairy tales—that speak just as powerfully to the follies and foibles in our nature as citizens and rulers alike that give rise to tyrants and dictatorships.
One such tale, Hans Christian Andersen’s fable of the Emperor’s New Clothes, is a perfect paradigm of life today in the fiefdom that is the American police state, only instead of an imperial presidentspending money wantonly on lavish vacations, entertainment, and questionable government programs aimed at amassing greater power, Andersen presents us with a vain and thoughtless emperor, concerned only with satisfying his own needs at the expense of his people, even when it means taxing them unmercifully, bankrupting his kingdom, and harshly punishing his people for daring to challenge his edicts.
For those unfamiliar with the tale, the Emperor, a vain peacock of a man, is conned into buying a prohibitively expensive suit of clothes that is supposedly visible only to those who are smart, competent and well-suited to their positions. Surrounded by yes men, professional flatterers and career politicians who fawn, simper and genuflect, the Emperor—arrogant, pompous and oblivious to his nudity—prances through the town in his new suit of clothes until a child dares to voice what everyone else has been thinking but too afraid to say lest they be thought stupid or incompetent: “He isn’t wearing anything at all!”
Much like the people of the Emperor’s kingdom, we, too, have been conned into believing that if we say what we fear, we will be branded idiots and fools. Yet the truth is staring us in the face just as surely as the fact that the Emperor was wearing no clothes.
Jury nullification occurs in a trial when a jury acquits a defendant, even though the members of the jury believe the defendant to be guilty of the charges. This may occur when members of the jury disagree with the law the defendant has been charged with breaking, or believe that the law should not be applied in that particular case.
A former Navy SEAL who was shot during a confrontation in an Ohio parking lot jumped in his truck to chase after the carload of thugs before realizing he was bleeding and driving himself to a local police station to get help.
That's right: Officers threw a flashbang grenade in my son's crib -- and left a hole in his chest. It gets worse
Randy L. Dixon Rivera's insight:
"Right now, a twenty-month-old toddler named Baby Bou Bou is recovering after a SWAT officer in Georgia threw a flashbang grenade into his crib. The grenade blew a hole in his chest that has yet to heal. Doctors are still unable to fully assess lasting brain damage. This unnecessary tragedy demands immediate action." - ACLU http://goo.gl/y3pNBj

"On May 2, 2012, the House Armed Services Committee (HASC) released a cute little “Myth and Fact” report on the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). For the average layman, this report would have left them with the impression that there was “nothing to see here.” It used tactics like not quoting the entire text, employing red herrings to distract from the issue, and contained doublespeak that would have made George Orwell proud. We issued a response shortly after, but that report, with its “mythbuster” style, inspired us to put together one of our own…this time with facts, links, and sources missing from the original HASC report and many others released afterward.
So, here is the first volume in PANDA’s Legislative Defense series. This particular volume is our first foray into challenging, debunking, and correcting the various myths thrown out by those with good, and evil, intentions regarding the 2012 NDAA. In this series, you will find some of the most popular, and most rare, myths you will face when educating others about the NDAA and the dangers it poses to our rights and the future of our country.
It would have been impossible without the help of the Patriot Coalition’s Jeff Lewis and Richard D. Fry, and Louis Flores, our PANDA intern, to produce an authoritative piece of work. This work will stand not only the strongest Constitutional scrutiny, but any attacks leveled at it, and I cannot thank these gentlemen enough.
This series is designed to help America stand against the NDAA and restore this country to Constitutional Governance. I hope you find it useful in your fight, to combat the lies, and give you the full confidence to stand on truth and the Constitution as we bring our government back to its founding principles." .
