Indian Women Rushing to Buy Guns After Gang Rape

Indian Women Rushing to Buy Guns After Gang Rape | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

NEW DELHI: The horrific attack on Nirbhaya has led to a spurt in requests for gun licences from women. Since December 18, the day the news of the brutal gang rape appeared in newspapers, the licensing department of Delhi Police has received a total of 274 applications from women. In addition, it has also been flooded with hundreds of queries on how to obtain a licence.

“We have received over 1,200 calls since that day. These include not only the average working woman, but even students who travel long distances to colleges and even their concerned parents. They were eager to find out more on the procedure to acquire arms,” said a Delhi police officer.

Delhi police sources say hundreds more had turned up at their office itself. “We had to patiently tell them that one needs to have a clear danger to one’s life to be given a licence. However, some of the parents were not happy with our replies. They said that with even public transport no longer safe in the city, they just cannot take chances. When we told them this could not be reason enough, we were told to give in writing that their daughters were indeed safe on Delhi’s roads,” said a source.

A member of the National Association for Gun Rights India claimed women were discriminated against. “Men are issued more gun licences than women in Delhi even if the later have genuine reasons to apply for them,” said a member. “The fact that even parents are ready to hand over weapons to their daughters shows they are living in fear. There is a 20% increase in self-defence courses across the city,” added the source.

littlebytesnews's insight:

LOL liberals are insane if they think self defense is murder. A woman who uses a gun to defend herself&kills the predator is justified in murdering a rapist. That image/ad by the Brady Campaign shows how insane and stupid liberals are, yet they support the dismemberment and murder of defenseless and innocent unborn human beings in the mother's womb and call it a choice. Disgusting!

 

The facts speak otherwise... http://gunssavelives.net  has numerous stories which go underreported where people have saved lives because they had a gun to use in self defense.

'Cannibal cop who plotted to kidnap, cook and eat women' demands names of 20 other 'cannibals' released

'Cannibal cop who plotted to kidnap, cook and eat women' demands names of 20 other 'cannibals' released | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Gilberto Valle, who served with the NYPD, insisted he needed to contact the alleged criminals because he was accused of being in league with them.

 

This does leave open the possibility that there may be more, according to the Manhattan federal court filing seen by the New York Post.

The three are identified in court papers as Michael Vanhise, 'Moody Blues' and 'Ali Khan.'

Public defender Julia Gatto wrote: 'Three weeks before trial, the defence needs to firmly know the identity of Mr Valle’s alleged co-conspirators so that it can conduct its pre-trial investigation. 

'Indeed, effective trial preparation could uncover facts critical to Mr Valle’s defence in that the individuals with whom Mr Valle was chatting likely will corroborate that they were engaging in fantasy role play with no intention of acting on their fantasies.'

Valle's estranged wife Kathleen Mangan, 28, tipped off police when she found sick internet messages detailing plans to abduct, rape, cook and consume 100 female victims.

Files found on the father of one’s computer included one titled: ‘Abducting and Cooking Victim I: A Blueprint’. It listed materials required including chloroform and rope as well as chronicling the practicalities of fitting a victim into an oven – her legs, he noted, would have to be bent.

Valle also expressed a desire to cook one particular victim slowly – ‘tying her onto some form of apparatus’ and trying to ‘keep her alive as long as possible’.

In a particularly chilling section of the internet transcripts read out in Manhattan Federal Court during his bail hearing, Valle shared his hunger for ‘girl meat’ on Thanksgiving in an email exchange with an alleged co-conspirator.

His defence maintain these were nothing but fantasies and have pointed out that no women were hurt, although among his named ‘victims’ are women whom the FBI have established did indeed know Valle.

Two of them claim to have been ‘stalked in an intimidating way’ by the police officer, who served in Harlem for six years.

littlebytesnews's insight:

This is one of the most bizarre stories from last year....now he wants the names of the other sickos he fantasized with about raping, killing and eating women?? If police have the names and have identified them they should question them and jail them as well for plotting to commit these crimes. Even if these were some sort of sick fantasy I think they all need a mental evaluation and should be removed from the public for the safety of other women. This is a sick fantasy if that is what it is....and as we know many people with sick fantasies often fulfill them, so it was likely only a matter of time before he and the others acted on them. I guess his wife divorced him after she found the messages on his computer?? What depraved world.

The McConnell Tax Hike-$41 in taxes for every $1 in spending cuts;$4T added to debt;$330B in spending

The McConnell Tax Hike-$41 in taxes for every $1 in spending cuts;$4T added to debt;$330B in spending | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
The McConnell Tax Hike will become law of the land. Mitch McConnell can and should take responsibility for it. The McConnell Tax Hike raises taxes on people

 

The McConnell Tax Hike raises taxes on people making over $400,000.00, but it also raises taxes on the middle class. “More than 80 percent of households with incomes between $50,000 and $200,000 would pay higher taxes.”

Not only does the McConnell Tax Hike stick it to the middle class, it raises taxes $41 for every $1 in spending cuts. Those spending cuts are ephemeral as there is$330 billion in new spending and a $4 trillion price tag over the next ten years.

Both Hollywood and NASCAR get carve outs. So too do wind energy companies.

Hidden in the Details… Fiscal Cliff Bill Will Raise Taxes on Those Making $100,000 a Year By $2,000 (Video)

Hidden in the Details… Fiscal Cliff Bill Will Raise Taxes on Those Making $100,000 a Year By $2,000 (Video) | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
During the 2008 campaign Barack Obama promised not to raise taxes on anyone making less than $250,000 a year. He lied. Obamacare created seven new taxes on those making less than $250,000 a year. And, then there's this.
littlebytesnews's insight:

workers would see up to $2,000 more taken out of their paychecks annually as a temporary payroll tax cut was set to expire.

And there are seven new taxes in Obamacare on those making less than 250,000/year. Don't expect them to make any real cuts in the next two months, expect the GOP to give in on raising the debt ceiling again. They are weak and foolish! http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/06/29/Seven-new-taxes

Fiscal cliff deal, approved by Senate, runs into opposition in House--Cantor is against!

Fiscal cliff deal, approved by Senate, runs into opposition in House--Cantor is against! | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

WASHINGTON – A Senate-passed bill to keep the country from going off the fiscal cliff ran into trouble in the House today, as Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor came out against the deal.

 

 

"I do not support the bill,” Cantor said as he left a closed closed-door meeting of Republicans about the deal negotiated between Vice President Biden and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.

The Senate passed the deal by a wide margin just after 2 AM today, two hours after the country technically went over the fiscal cliff, when tax hikes and billions of spending cuts took effect.

 

With just hours left to try to act on the deal before financial markets open Wednesday morning, the House had yet to even schedule a vote.

“The Speaker and Leader laid out options to the members and listened to feedback,” said Boehner spokesman Brendan Buck. “The lack of spending cuts in the Senate bill was a universal concern amongst members in today’s meeting.”

littlebytesnews's insight:

Good, I hope Cantor sticks to his decision and the rest of the GOP doesn't agree to it. Unless DEMs add spending cuts don't count on them doing it later. They will just keep moving the deadline up for sequestration cuts. While the excessive military cuts are bad, so is raising taxes on anyone right now. I don't trust any of the DEMs to make the necessary cuts later and then they had to go and add green energy credits and other spending into the 'deal'. That is not the way to make cuts and expect the GOP to give in.

U.S. Budget Compromise Inches Closer-$110B in spending cuts/sequestration—defer cuts for two months.

U.S. Budget Compromise Inches Closer-$110B in spending cuts/sequestration—defer cuts for two months. | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) and Vice President Joe Biden, include:

Permanently raising tax rates on income over $400,000 for individuals and $450,000 for households.

Raising taxes on capital gains and dividends for those households, from the current 15% to Clinton-era levels of roughly 20%.

Limiting the number of personal exemptions as well as the value of itemized deductions, two restrictions that would kick in at $250,000 for individuals and $300,000 for couples. Those limits were abolished as part of the 2001 Bush-era tax revamp.

Setting the estate tax rate at 40% on estates over $5 million, up from the 35% that applies now to estates over $5.12 million. That isn’t as high as the 45% rate Mr. Obama sought with a $3.5 million exemption.

The emerging agreement met with opposition from Senate Democrats who believe the administration gave away too much in compromising on their party’s signature commitment to raise taxes on income over $250,000. Mr. Biden was invited to the Capitol Monday to sell his own party caucus on the deal.

The Biden-McConnell deal is a classic compromise that included something for everyone to love—and hate. The key question is whether the positive components and the pressure of the Jan. 1 deadline are enough to neutralize the parts that raise objections. If not, attacks from the left and right could combine to topple the deal.

For Republicans, the bill includes the bitter medicine of the first income-tax rate increase since 1993, a violation of the anti-tax orthodoxy that has defined their party. On the other hand, it would codify the Bush-era lower income-tax rates for most Americans as permanent law, ending the recurring battles over how long they will endure.

For Democrats, the bill’s tax increase makes good on their party’s marquee promise in the 2012 campaign to raise taxes on upper-income Americans and not the middle class. But many Democrats, especially liberals, were infuriated that the bill set the income threshold as high as $450,000.

Mr. Obama, speaking Monday afternoon, said negotiators had made “progress” over the past few days toward a deal. “It appears that an agreement to prevent this New Year’s tax hike is within sight, but it’s not done,” he said. “There are still issues left to resolve but we’re hopeful Congress can get it done.”

One sticking point has been automatic spending cuts, known as the sequester, which are set to take effect in coming days.

Republicans had insisted the cuts of $24 billion be offset with savings in other areas. The White House wants some of the offset to be in the form of tax increases, not just other spending cuts.

Mr. Reid has a backup proposal, which tackles only a few items on the legislative agenda, including extending current tax rates for income up to $250,000 for couples filing jointly.

 It calls for a permanent fix to the alternative minimum tax, a one-year extension of unemployment insurance benefits, and a five-year extension of other tax breaks. Among them are tax credits for families of modest means, including one for college tuition, and an expanded earned income tax credit, which provides cash to working poor families who don’t earn enough to pay income taxes. It also would block a scheduled cut in Medicare payments to doctors for one year.

The deal taking shape also would include tax breaks adopted by the Senate Finance Committee earlier this year, aides with knowledge of the talks said. Among them was a one-year extension of the tax credit, with slight modifications that would allow wind-farm developers to claim the credit for projects that begin construction by Jan. 1, 2014.


littlebytesnews's insight:

Not all DEMs in Senate want to go with the negotiations if doesn't tax above $250K, this deal increases taxes on $400K and $450 for couples. The House still won't vote on it until after Tuesday since they have already left for the night.

Manchin Introduces 'CALM' Act to Ease Fiscal Cliff - Press Releases - Newsroom - Joe Manchin, United States Senator, West Virginia

Manchin Introduces 'CALM' Act to Ease Fiscal Cliff - Press Releases - Newsroom - Joe Manchin, United States Senator, West Virginia | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

Senator Manchin’s measure would phase in the tax hikes over the next three years, instead allowing all of them to hit immediately. The bill would also allow the Office of Management and Budget to prioritize which programs will be cut, rather than apply an across-the-board cut. The measure would also encourage Congress and the President to reach the “big fix” that economists have called for to put the nation’s fiscal house back in order.

A summary of Senator Manchin’s legislation is attached and full text of his floor speech is below. 

littlebytesnews's insight:

This is why the fiscal cliff compromise continues to fell and why Israel can not compromise with Gaza/Hamas...evil will not compromise. 

While this 'band aid' the CALM Act sounds like it has some potential to at least slow the tax increases and cuts which are part of the 'fiscal cliff' talks, I hope that by 2014 we can replace the RINOs and more DEMs in the Senate so we can actually make some real spending cuts. The main thing the GOP must remember is that they control the 'purse' and it's up to them to continue to remain firm on principles like lower tax rates and cutting spending. If DEMs insist on raising them it will be their failed policies that cause the next recession, even though I think it will become more like a Depression by 2016. 

 

I'd rather they cut govt programs over the next three years and hopefully put the military last, and then phase in lower tax rates by 2014 and other spending cuts, such as welfare entitlements including the extended Unemployment rate. Keeping Americans on Unemployment and dependent on the govt is not going to boost the economy. People need jobs and while this admin doesn't seem to get it, the only way to create more jobs and stimulate the economy is through lowering taxes so employers have more money to hire and create more jobs and expand their business. The rate Obama wants to tax small businesses and those making over $250K will lead more companies out of the country, down-sizing and lead to more unemployed. 

 

Apparently Obama and those who voted for him don't seem to understand or they just don't care as long as they think they are getting taken care of and getting something for 'free'. In reality they are hurting the economy, spending us into greater debt and taking more of the hard working taxpayers money, reducing our spending power and ability to stimulate the economy and stifling jobs.  It's basic math or economics 101, but perhaps Obama and those who support him are really that incompetent or they don't care.

 

You'd think they'd learn from what happened in Greece and France where they just stopped a 75% tax increase on the wealthy. The rich in the UK fled after taxes went up and that resulted in less govt revenue, so why does Obama think raising them here is gonig to help and the wealthy won't do the same here?? 

 

Anyway, enough rambling...it's a no win situation for the GOP but this might be the most logical plan right now if we are to avoid the tax increases and cuts all at once. We'll see what happens tomorrow when the do nothing Senate reconvenes to decide on the 'fiscal cliff' talks and whether they will vote on this Act to slow the damage.

Long before she was accused of pushing a Queens man to his death on the subway tracks, Erika Menendez was arrested at least twice on misdemeanor charges related to violence and had a history of family members calling police to report erratic behavior related to her mental health, a law-enforcement official said.

Over the past 12 years, police have records of 14 encounters with Ms. Menendez, 31 years old, who has been charged with murder as a hate crime in last Thursday’s subway death. In at least four of those instances, the official said, Ms. Menendez’s mother, Maricela Mera, told police that Ms. Menendez had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, an illness marked by extreme shifts in mood, and was acting violently.

Ms. Menendez, of the Rego Park section of Queens, has nine prior arrests on charges that include cocaine and marijuana possession, harassment and assault, the official said. Two of the arrests in 2003 resulted in charges of assault for allegedly punching men, the official said. In five of the nine cases, Ms. Menendez received a conditional discharge without jail time. Four of the cases have been sealed, and no details were available Sunday.

Ms. Menendez’s previous run-ins with police emerged Sunday after she was arraigned on a murder charge in connection with the death of Sunando Sen, a 46-year-old Indian immigrant. Prosecutors said Ms. Menendez shoved Mr. Sen in front of an oncoming 7 train at the 40th Street-Lowery Street station in Sunnyside, Queens. Just before the incident, witnesses saw her speaking incoherently to herself, authorities said.

Ms. Menendez was arrested on Saturday and admitted she pushed Mr. Sen, who is Hindu, because of his ethnicity, said Queens District Attorney Richard Brown. Paraphrasing Ms. Menendez’s statement to investigators, Mr. Brown said that she said: “I pushed a Muslim off the train tracks because I hate Hindus and Muslims ever since 2001 when they put down the Twin Towers I’ve been beating them up.”

littlebytesnews's insight:

With such a long history of arrests and mental illness, agressive behavior and 'threatening to harm herself and others' she should have been in jail or locked up in a psych ward a long time ago.

Also according to the article:

In September 2008, Ms. Menendez’s mother reported to police that her daughter was “threatening to harm herself and others,” the official said. Ms. Menendez was again taken to Elmhurst Hospital Center.

In January 2010, the NYPD has a report of Ms. Menendez throwing a radio at a police officer and making threats. “She appeared confused and irritated,” the official said. It wasn’t clear if Ms. Menendez was arrested.

In the most recent call to police about Ms. Menendez, her mother reported her missing on Feb. 27, saying she hadn’t been taking her medication, the official said. That day, she and her mother had an argument, and Ms. Menendez “broke several items inside the family’s home,” the official said.

 

Once again, like with most criminals, the mental health situation and her behavior were ignored and she was allowed to live free in society among people until she finally took someones life. Hopefully this time she will stay behind bars for life as she is unfit for civil society.

If she would have used a gun, like Adam Lanza, and killed more people Bloomberg and other liberals would be blaming the gun rather than looking at her past history. But, in the situation of Adam Lanza they would rather blame the weapon of choice rather than his mental health history which included outbursts, lack of empathy for others, anti-social behavior and a history of mental instability. The problem is not the weapon chosen and how many people are harmed at one time, whether it is one life or a dozen or more, these people need to be identified and kept off the streets unless they are under 24 hour supervision.Those who are a danger to themselves and/or others should not be integrated or mainstreamed into society and treated as though they don't have a mental disorder. They must be isolated for the safety of the common good and the sane. We can't keep creating more laws that criminals and the insane will not obey. We must identify those with mental illness, like Ms Menendez and Adam Lanza, before they commit a violent criminal act, not after.

OBAMA: I RAN SO I COULD HAVE 'MEN WITH GUNS' AROUND MY DAUGHTERS | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

Walters: I want to talk about the girls. we have been watching them grow up from little girls to young ladies. now, Malia recently got her first cell phone. do you want to see who she calls and who she texts? 

Michelle Obama: I give my daughter at this age -- I give her a long rope. and there is monitoring because we have rules. But monitoring may be -- you never know when I'm going to walk in your room and i'm going to definitely ask you, who are you talking to and are you talking about school work? But...

Barack Obama: And they're not very good at lying. We joke sometimes about how Malia's getting to the age now, and boys start calling and, you know, sort of, I always talk about how one of the main incentives for running again was continuing Secret Service protection to have men with guns around at all times...

littlebytesnews's insight:

Not to mention they go to a private school where 11 armed guards provide protection [School Obama’s Daughters Attend Has 11 Armed Guards  http://sco.lt/51leGP ] and they attended the same school where Rahm Emmanuel's kids attend schoolhttp://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/07/21/rahm-emanuels-temper-flar_n_905589.html ; in Chicago, at Univ of Chicago Lab Schools, where they also have armed security. http://www.ucls.uchicago.edu/news/detail.aspx?pageaction=ViewSinglePublic&LinkID=223&ModuleID=133 ;

As with most politicians and celebrities who condemn law abiding gun owners and push for gun control legislation, they are ok with limiting the average American the right to self protection and the right to protect their own children in schools, but they have protection for their children. It's completely hypocritical and wrong that they want to deny our children the same protection while they are in school. These random shooting incidents are more likely to occur at a public school than a private school because criminals and crazed sociopaths know there are not armed guards in 'gun free zones'.

India Gang Rape Victim's Friend Speaks Of Attack-rapists violated her with an iron bar causing immense internal damage

India Gang Rape Victim's Friend Speaks Of Attack-rapists violated her with an iron bar causing immense internal damage | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
The friend of the Indian gang rape victim speaks for the first time to tell of their horrific ordeal.

 

He said: "They hit me with a small stick and dragged my friend to a seat near the driver's cabin."

After that the "driver and the other men raped my friend and hit her in the worst possible ways in the most private parts of her body."

"I cannot tell you what I feel when I think of it. I shiver in pain," he said.

The men also violated her with an iron bar causing immense internal damage that would lead to her death before throwing them from the bus.

Protesters have called for all suspects to be hanged and want a better deal for women so the streets are safer and men who rape women are convicted in courts.

National crime records show that 228,650 of the total 256,329 violent crimes recorded last year were aimed against women and rape cases more than doubled between 1990 and 2008.


littlebytesnews's insight:

What total savages...I wonder why they haven't released pictures of names of the rapists yet. They haven't even shown pictures of the victim now that she has died. Not that I want to see pictures of her after the rape, but before. We don't even know what she looked like or have a picture to share in rememberance of her. This is the most horrific rape case I have heard of in years. I'm sure this has happened elsewhere and many times before, especially in primitive countries where Islamists rape women and children often. I don't know if the men who did this were Islamists or Hindu, but I wouldn't doubt they were Islamists since they are the most barbaric and known for treating women worse than animals and raping them.

 

Either way, what happened to her and her friend sounds horrific. I can't imagine how helpless he must have felt having to witness such a horrible attack which would lead to her death. It is reported the youngest attacker, who is 16, soon to be 17 pulled out her intestines with his hands??!!! 

The newspaper reported that he pulled her intestines out with his bare hands and was also responsible for suggesting that she be thrown naked from the bus. 

'Both of them had subjected her to sexual abuse twice. Singh was the first to rape her followed by the juvenile and then Akshay. Later, when she lost consciousness, Singh and the juvenile raped her a second time.'

Authorities are waiting for the outcome of a bone marrow test before deciding whether the sixth suspect in the attack will be charged as a juvenile or an adult.

The results of the test, intended to determine the suspect's exact age, are expected to arrive soon. 

 

Police plan to ask for the death penalty in the case. The men - the bus driver, his brother and four of their friends - are residents of a south Delhi slum near the site of the attack.

The friend also stated nobody would help after they were thrown naked from the bus. 

He said: "There were a few people who had gathered round but nobody helped. Before the police came I screamed for help but the auto rickshaws, cars and others passing by did not stop," he said in a studio interview, a blue metal crutch leaning on his chair.

He said when police arrived: "We kept shouting at the police, 'please give us some clothes' but they were busy deciding which police station our case should be registered at."

"It took an hour and a half for us to be taken to hospital," he added.

The police have arrested six suspects for the crime - five men and a juvenile believed to be aged 17 - who were charged with murder, rape and kidnapping in a city court on Thursday.

A day after Union Minister Shashi Tharoor favoured naming the revised anti-rape law after Delhi gang-rape victim, her family members on Wednesday said they have no objection to it and the move would be an honour to the girl. The family members of the 23-year-old girl said that "if her name is made public for this purpose, they have no objection to it".

Tharoor, the Minister of State for Human Resources Development, had also said the revised anti-rape legislation should be named after the victim if her parents do not have any objection.

"Wondering what interest is served by continuing anonymity of#DelhGangRape victim. Why not name&honour her as a real person w/own identity?" he asked on micro-blogging site Twitter.

"Unless her parents object, she should be honoured& the revised anti-rape law named after her. She was a human being w/a name,not just a symbol," Tharoor, who is known for speaking his mind, said.

Arizona Woman, 32, faces death penalty 'for brutally stabbing businessman ex-boyfriend to death in his shower after he broke up with her'

Arizona Woman, 32, faces death penalty 'for brutally stabbing businessman ex-boyfriend to death in his shower after he broke up with her' | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Prosecutors in Arizona will today begin arguing that 32-year-old Jodi Arias should receive the death penalty for the murder of her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander, who was killed in June 2008.

 

Alexander, a 30-year-old Mormon motivational speaker, was found stabbed 27 times, with his throat slit and with a bullet in his head at his home in Mesa, Arizona days after the savage attack.

Arias, a photographer who had dated Alexander for nearly five months in 2007, has been in jail since her arrest. She has pleaded not-guilty to first degree murder.

   

Accused: Jodi Arias, 32, faces the death penalty after allegedly murdering her ex-boyfriend, right

But investigators and Alexander's friends maintain that Arias became bitterly jealous and 'obsessed' with him after the break up, and even stalked him in the months leading up to his death.

The couple had met at a work conference in Las Vegas in September 2006 and began speaking on the phone every day. Court records show they exchanged as many as 82,000 emails.



In June 2008, Alexander told friends he thought Arias might have hacked into his Facebook account and told her to stay away.

In jail: Arias claimed she had nothing to do with the murder but later said it was out of self defense

Yet on June 4, she visited his home and they had sex before he was murdered. She later told police that they had maintained a secret sexual relationship despite breaking up, ABC reported.

'There's nothing about her that I see in marriage material - or wife material,' Alexander had said, according to his friend, Dave Hall. 'But it's hard to say no to a woman that sneaks into your house, crawls in your bed and tries to, you know, seduce you.'

At first she denied being at his house the day he was killed, yet police found a camera in Alexander's washing machine containing graphic pictures of the pair having sex.

The water-logged camera, which belonged to Alexander, had been damaged in the washing machine, but the Mesa police crime lab was able to recover images, some of which had been deleted.

Among those deleted were pictures showing Alexander posing naked in the shower at 5.22pm, with the last picture showing him alive at 5.30pm. Later photos showed him bleeding while on the floor.

The camera also contained pictures of Arias posing naked on Alexander's bed at 1.40pm.

On June 9, his friends went to his upscale home after he had failed to return their calls. They found him dead in his shower and his body was 'well into the decomposition process'.

Wounds show that Alexander attempted to fight back, court records show. An autopsy found he sustained 27 puncture wounds and one gunshot wound, with the bullet found in his left cheek.

Investigators also found a bloody left palm print with Arias' DNA on the bathroom wall. Her DNA was also found in hair recovered from a bloody wall, according to the Arizona Republic.

After initially claiming that she had not been at his home that day, Arias changed her story to admit she had been there - but had not killed her ex-boyfriend.


She later changed her story once again, telling the court that she killed Alexander in self defense after he became angry when she dropped his camera.

She claims he had been sexually and physically abusive throughout their relationship.

'It makes me sick because I know her true side,' Steven Alexander, Travis Alexander's brother, told ABC. 'And I ask people to please not buy into this sweet innocent personality that she puts on.'

As well as the inconsistencies in her story, Arias' case has been plagued with difficulties with her legal representation. 

She asked to represent herself but when she submitted letters to the court that she claimed Alexander had written - saying he was a pedophile - they were found to be forgeries, and she told a judge she was in 'over her head'.

littlebytesnews's insight:

Really sad story....it sounds like she was obsessed with him and acted in a jealous rage. She was probably hoping having sex with him again would get him to come back to her but instead she was seducing him for naught and he was still unwilling to give her a second chance. Stabbing him 27 times after shooting him in the face, plus slitting his throat shows this was an act of rage and likely a crime of passion. The fact that police found the camera and pictures after she denied killing him and then changed her story only makes her appear more guilty and confirms she was there that day and had to be guilty of taking the pictures before and after killing him. No other DNA evidence was found in the apartment besides hers. Talk about crazy!

 

He looks like he was a really nice guy, who unfortunately got mixed up with the wrong girl...beware of pretty faces/packages, some are more deadly than they look. May justice be served and Travis's family&friends find peace.

Janae Rensch's curator insight, May 8, 2013 2:31 PM

Jodi Arias murdered her ex-boyfriend after he broke up with her. She stabbed him 27 times and had a bullet through his head. For doing this, Jodi could face the death penalty for her crimes. She had pleaded not guilty to her crimes but then she had said she killed him in self defense. She stalked him and was obsessed with him, she changed her timeline of events and changed her story numerous times. Jodi was with her ex-boyfriend the day he died but tried to say she wasn't. She told jurars that he was abusive and mean.

Janae Rensch's comment, May 8, 2013 2:33 PM
Jodi Arias should definitely get executed for stabbing someone 27 times, slitting his throat, and shooting him in the head. If they broke up because of jealous reasons then so be it, that doesn't mean it's okay to kill him because he broke up with you. Her story makes no sense and especially when she's changed it so many times.

Marlboro, N.J. begins test of armed guards in all its schools after Newtown massacre

Marlboro, N.J. begins test of armed guards in all its schools after Newtown massacre | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Students in Marlboro, N.J., returned to classes Wednesday to find armed guards at school buildings — a startling change in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., massacre.

 

Many of the suburban parents dropping off children in SUVs and minivans expressed their support for the controversial security measure.

“It’s about time,” said Venice Robbins, 44, after arriving with her son at Robertsville Elementary School. “Safety’s very important to us. I think what happened (in Newtown) could have been stopped with more security.”

Daniella Cingari, 41, said the armed guard would give her peace of mind during the school day.

“It’s wonderful — the more security, the better,” she said after saying goodbye to her 7-year-old daughter.

littlebytesnews's insight:

I think this is great! I hope more schools do this before students return to school after the Christmas break. I have a feeling my sons won't, but it would be nice. I know it might cost more but how many parents will complain about costs when it's providing protection for their children's lives?? I know I would pay more for armed security, but even if they only use paid security short-term, they can always find a way to train, armed volunteers like Sheriff Joe Arapaio is doing in Maricopa County with his 'armed posse'. Or trained, armed volunteer parents can be used or retired law enforcement/military or off-duty law enforcement. Or they can always fund it by getting the teacher's unions to fund school security, after all aren't they suppose to advocate a better work environment for teachers and students??

Erin Larcey's curator insight, December 8, 2013 5:45 PM

This article adds to the overractions. Having armed guards at a school. Is that really necessary? I could see needing a police officer positioned at every school. But I really can not see needing armed guards. We don't want schools to feel like a boot camp. The other issue would be explaining the precautions to younger students. How do you explain why there is an armed officer at school to an eight-year old child. Children shouldn't need to know about such things. The other thing would be the need for added security in school. We know from the Sandyhooke disaster that we need some more security in schools. It makes me sad that we need so much security in our schools. They have also started implementing the use of metal detectors at school. To be afraid that someone in the community might attack the students is upsetting, as well as the thought that someone who attends the school might attack the students and teachers is so unfortunate. What would drive someone to do such a thing?

House Poised for Cliff Vote

House Poised for Cliff Vote | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

The Republican-controlled House of Representatives was poised to vote Tuesday night on a bipartisan plan to avert year-end spending cuts and tax increases, after House Speaker John Boehner quelled a rebellion among conservatives who threatened to derail the measure.

The bill, which raised income-tax rates on wealthier Americans and was passed overwhelmingly by the Senate early Tuesday morning, was sharply criticized by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R., Ill.) and other House Republicans who argued that it consisted almost entirely of tax increases and contained barely any spending cuts—a major bone of contention between the parties.

But Mr. Boehner (R., Ohio), who didn’t take a position on the bill, turned back conservative demands that the bill be amended to include more spending cuts. He argued that such changes risked killing the bill—and exposing the GOP to blame for tax increases, spending cuts and possible turmoil in the economy as a result.

That cleared the way for the House to vote on the bill late Tuesday. House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) said there was a “strong majority” of Democrats who would support the bill and that she was “confident it will pass” if it comes to a House vote.

“We need to avert the fiscal cliff,” said Rep. Tom Reed (R., N.Y.) after House GOP leaders announced plans to hold the long-delayed vote Tuesday night. “We need to wrap this up in this Congress, in my humble opinion, and we need to make a decision as a Congress—and that’s what they’re doing,”

The tension-filled New Year’s Day in the House was a major test of Mr. Boehner’s leadership just two days before he is to stand for re-election. It marked one more gripping episode in Congress’s torturous drive to avert the fiscal cliff—a journey that ended up breaching the Jan. 1 deadline and bumped up against a separate Jan. 2 deadline when about $110 billion in spending cuts were to kick in.

But after the Senate passed its bill to blunt the effects of the so called fiscal cliff, many House Republicans reacted in anger. A wide range of House Republicans were clamoring for a chance to vote to add more spending cuts to the bill and send it back to the Senate. “I would be shocked if this bill doesn’t go back to the Senate,” said Rep. Spencer Bachus (R., Ala.) after a two-hour strategy meeting of House Republicans.

In a closed-door caucus later Tuesday afternoon, Mr. Boehner presented GOP lawmakers with two options for overcoming an impasse, according to a senior House GOP aide.

One was to amend the Senate bill to include spending cuts and return it to the Senate. The alternative was to simply put the Senate bill to a vote.

If the House had amended the bill, and it hadn’t passed the Senate before the 112th Congress ends, the legislative process would have had to restart with the new Congress.

Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D., Ill.) said he was stunned by Mr. Boehner’s refusal to back the compromise, which was supported by nearly all Senate Republicans, including some of the most conservative members, such as Sens. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania.

“That’s just madness,” he said. “We had a strong vote in the Senate. How much stronger can we make it?”

The legislation that passed the Senate is a far-reaching tax bill that raises tax rates on couples with incomes over $450,000, extends a variety of expiring business and individual tax breaks, extends expanded unemployment insurance benefits and postpones for two months the across-the-board spending cuts of the fiscal cliff.

But many Republicans were livid because the deal didn’t do more to cut spending. Even centrist Republican Rep. Steve LaTourette (R., Ohio), a retiring member who said he would vote for the Senate bill if that was his only choice, groused about the House being asked to rubber stamp a complex, little-vetted deal crafted entirely in the Senate.

“This isn’t a done deal by any stretch,” said Mr. LaTourette. “If this is the only choice, I will vote for it just to get something done.” But he questioned the wisdom of accepting, without change, “a package put together by a bunch of sleep-deprived octogenarians on New Year’s Eve.”

Corrections & Amplifications

Republicans wanted automatic spending cuts of $24 billion, known as the sequester, to be replaced with cuts in other areas and not simply be canceled. An earlier version of this article incorrectly said $24 million.

 House GOP Leaders Move Toward Tuesday Night Vote 

House Republican leaders moved toward a Tuesday night vote on a Senate-passed agreement to avoid tax increases and spending cuts, possibly clearing the way for a final congressional vote on a deal that avoids the so-called fiscal cliff.

The abrupt shift by Republicans came after leaders suggested they might try to add $330 billion in spending cuts to the agreement amid opposition from conservatives who argued the deal didn’t include any meaningful reduction in spending. GOP leaders canvassed lawmakers about whether to push for more spending cuts before deciding to bring up the Senate bill, which passed that chamber early on New Year’s Day.

Republican leaders planned a vote in the 9 p.m. hour, GOP aides said. The decision came shortly after a closed-door GOP caucus meeting.

Why didn't they ever vote on the CALM act?? At least it would have allowed spending cuts over a three year period and kept taxes low during that time and then by 2014 we could have taken back the Senate and stopped all the lib BS?? Why do the GOP think we want them to pass anything but the Bush Tax Cuts again and keep them permanent???!! Anything else is irresponsible unless it includes spending cuts that are balanced and don't weaken our military!

Greenwich Village couple busted with cache of weapons, bombmaking explosives: sources

Greenwich Village couple busted with cache of weapons, bombmaking explosives: sources | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
The privileged daughter of a prominent city doctor, and her boyfriend — a Harvard grad and Occupy Wall Street activist — have been busted for allegedly having a cache of weapons and a...

 

The Occupiers, Morgan Gliedman, 27, and Aaron Greene, 31, were visited by New York City police due to a warrant for Gliedman's arrest relating to alleged credit card theft. Once in the couple’s apartment, police claim they found the explosive materials and how-to manuals on terrorism.

According to the New York Post:

A detective discovered a plastic container with seven grams of a white chemical powder called HMTD, which is so powerful, cops evacuated several nearby buildings.

Police also found a flare launcher, which is a commercial replica of a grenade launcher; a modified 12 gauge Mossberg 500 shotgun; ammo; and nine high-capacity rifle magazines, the sources said.

Cops also allegedly uncovered papers about creating homemade booby traps, improvised submachine guns, and various handwritten notebooks containing chemical formulas.

Breitbart released a series of internal Occupy emails that revealed the “new movement” was months in the making, with professional organizers such as Lisa Fithian behind the coordination. Breitbart also pointed out the similarities between Communist doctrine of the “bourgeoisie vs the proletariat” and the Occupy movement's “1% vs the 99%” argument. Breitbart’s efforts eventually culminated in one of his final projects before his passing, the Citizens United documentary Occupy Unmasked.

One major thesis of the film was that the Occupy movement was created to move the national discussion off of deficits and debt, and onto the false dichotomy of the “rich vs the poor,” so that the Democratic Party could win in the coming 2012 presidential election and other left-of-center groups could retain power in the US political process.

As a result of Breitbart’s efforts, right-of-center grassroots media began investigating and infiltrating the Occupy movement’s camps and researching their organizers and backers. As rapes, other crimes, terrorist ties, and involvement with hostile foreign nations were discovered by independent grassroots efforts, law enforcement began to take justifiable interest in the self-proclaimed “revolutionary movement.”

littlebytesnews's insight:

I wonder when Obama and others on the left like Pelosi, Reid, Michael Moore or Bill Maher will denounce the Occupy Movement as a terrorist group?? Thankfully they are no longer 'occupying' cities across the country and hopefully they will remain at bay now that their dear leader won re-election. It's too bad he won again, despite efforts of conservative media and right of center grassroots exposing them for who they really were.

Tell Congress: You Are Responsible for the Outcome of Increased Gun Control!

Tell Congress: You Are Responsible for the Outcome of Increased Gun Control! | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

Anti-gun Mayor Michael Bloomberg recently claimed responsibility for school shootings and gun-related acts of aggressive violence.

 

He told Cynthia McFadden of ABC's Nightline,"I hold you and me responsible. We didn't pay attention to what our legislators were doing... we have let our society degenerate -- our country degenerate to the point where we have a murder rate that you cannot compare it to other countries."

 

His solution: ban guns. Not just in Connecticut or in his jurisdiction of New York City, but ban them nationwide!

Bloomberg playing the role of the all-caring, all-wise Governor is seeking to do what no human is able -- eradicate acts of violence and aggression -- and is wrongfully (and unlawfully) calling for the practical end of the Second Amendment and the right to self-defense.

If Bloomberg and his ilk succeed in banning more weapons, then they must be prepared to take full responsibility for their bad policies.

Send a message that is loud and clear to the the House and Senate. Tell them that if they support legislation that would increase bans on firearms held by law-abiding Americans, then they alone are responsible for every single act of violence that is committed in the future due to their bad, deadly policies that disarm Americans from their own defense!

littlebytesnews's insight:

Gun control doesn't work....Adam Lanza stole his weapons, the nut who ambushed firefighters in NJ recently had someone legally buy weapons for a convicted felon. Chicago has tough gun laws and highest rate of violent crime and gun violence, leaving unarmed and law abiding citizens sitting ducks.

littlebytesnews's insight:

Apparently these liberal fools don't care about the privacy and safety of the residents that are unarmed, let alone the ones who are armed and could have their weapons stolen to commit crimes. Gun ownership doesn't equate to criminal...they are treating them like sex offenders by posting this information online. Why not post some real news like where all the sex offenders live or all the non-paying taxpayers live or something else. This is ridiculous!!

New Jersey Mayor Defends Decision to Arm School Security

New Jersey Mayor Defends Decision to Arm School Security | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
The New Jersey mayor moving ahead with arming police officers in his township’s schools defended the decision Monday after an avalanche of responses, some of it critical.

 

Marlboro’s school resource officers will begin carrying unspecified types of firearms when classes resume for the Monmouth County town on Jan. 2. Until now, the officers had patrolled the schools without guns. They will be trained to work in a school environment and how to respond to emergency situations.

Hornik said the majority of the township of 40,200 residents supports his decision to beef up security.

“This is strictly a security matter to protect our 8,000 students,” said Hornik, who has three school-aged children. “My first choice is to get rid of all guns and all the bad people, but that’s not happening with a stroke of a pen.”

Gov. Chris Christie, a Republican, said Friday that he doesn’t support deploying armed police officers across state schools.

Marlboro is also considering upping the number of school security cameras and other capital improvements that could increase safety. Hornik didn’t immediately know how much the extra policing will add to the township’s $80 million school budget, but said it wasn’t “prohibitively expensive.”

littlebytesnews's insight:

Students in Marlboro, NJ are lucky their mayor cares about their safety&security. If gun free zones are so safe, why are they most often targeted in these violent school and mall shootings?? It's time to take school security seriously and the safety of our children more seriously. I hope more schools and parents continue to support this movement.

 

It really should be a local decision and one that parents and school boards can get behind, not just the state education departments. The decision needs to be in the school district and the parents control, only they know the area, the kids and the potential for violent crime in their area. Some schools are prone to more violence because of gang activity, others may seem unlikely, like the affluent Newtown, in reality none of us are safe and unless we accept that fact and do something to be more proactive to protect ourselves we are left defenseless. By the time police respond in most rural areas it's too late--even in large cities. The best protection is armed security on the premises or plain clothes trained security or uniformed security. But, we must put the safety back in safe schools. Without a safe learning environment our children will feel less safe, parents will feel less at ease in sending their kids to public schools and more will home school or seek private school options. Unforutnately many are  unable to home school or send their children to secure private schools and have no choice but to rely on public schools. Because of this, states need to take security more seriously otherwise more lawsuits and more incidence of violence will occur in our schools.

Video:Sandy Hook Elementary School Nurse--A Survivor Interviewed

Video:Sandy Hook Elementary School Nurse--A Survivor Interviewed | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
littlebytesnews's insight:

Earlier reports said the school nurse had direct eye contact with the shooter, Adam Lanza, but in this CBS 60 Minutes interview from Dec 17, 2012, she says she had already hidden under her desk and could see him in the doorway through the hole in her desk for computer wires.

 

After she had called out to the secretary about the loud popping sounds, the secretary then replied with her name in a sound of fear...leading her to hide for her own safety before the gunman found her. After he left her doorway the nurse&her secretary pulled the phone off the desk to call for help. Luckily her life was spared, along with her secretary, as they eventually hid for up to four hours in a supply closet in the nurse's office. Again, if she had a concealed weapon&training and/or the secretary had a concealed weapon&training, she could have shot him and taken him down before he continued on his shooting spree, where he killed 20 innocent children and left five teachers and the principal dead before killing himself.

 

Such a tragic situation...I imagine the survivors of that horrific day feel a lot of guilt and remorse for not being able to do more to help. The kids who escaped were lucky to get away, sadly according to reports some of them were shot and killed even as they tried to flee, but those who were hidden by their teacher Victoria Soto, were spared. Sadly, if she were armed she could have killed or stopped Adam Lanza before he killed more students in the other classroom or if the principal or school nurse had been armed or an armed security officer was present they could have taken him down before he proceeded into the classrooms. I truly believe things would have ended much better if someone would have been able to fire back. I'd rather know my children are protected by someone I can trust with a gun, then left to fend for themselves in a situation like this. While running, cowering in closets&cupboards saved some lives, it was not the most effective way to stop the shooter from taking more lives. Only the arrival of law enforcement with guns was enough to stop him and led him to take his own life.
