Grandpa Turns The Tables On 3 Would-Be Rapists In An Epic Way, Saving His Granddaughter And Wife

According to WBTW, a 67-year-old Lumberton, N.C., man was able to protect his family and property against three armed intruders determined to rob him and rape his teenage granddaughter.

The incident reportedly occurred Monday night as the trio of hoodlums knocked on the man’s door, forced their way in, and began demanding money. As he and his wife were corralled to the rear of the home to open their safe, it became clear the intruders were also eyeing the 19-year-old girl as a sexual assault victim.

Suspected in a number of other nearby burglaries, authorities confirmed the three men were wearing dark clothing, ski masks, and gloves when they rushed into the residence. Possibly identifying the elderly couple as an easy target, they soon recognized that they had met their match when the grandfather retrieved his own gun and opened fire.

Though he was struck several times and had to be airlifted to the intensive care unit of a hospital as a result, the vigilant homeowner was able to hit each of the intruders – one of whom ultimately died from his injuries.

The three men stole their victim’s vehicle and fled the scene. When police recovered the gold Cadillac, they found 20-year-old Jamie Lee Faison lying dead inside. His two alleged accomplices made their way to the hospital and were also airlifted to another facility to undergo surgery.

A family member of the injured grandfather posted an update on his condition, explaining that he had made it through surgery but was not yet out of the woods. She asked for the continued prayers of those who were already wishing him a full recovery.

History Shows Ebola Not The Threat That Political Chattering Heads Say It Is

As much as I enjoy beating this President up for his own personal incompetence and that of his sycophants, we need to put Ebola into perspective.

In 2012—the last year for which we have verified statistics—roughly 92 people a day died on our highways.

So far, one guy came into a Dallas hospital from West Africa after having been exposed to Ebola—having lied about where he had been—and died. He infected two nurses who treated him.

This is definitely a matter of concern, but hardly the political contagion that the Sunday morning TV talking heads seem to think it; nor is it the leading edge of a bubonic plague-like outbreak in our cities.

That said, fixing this would be a lot easier if the citizens actually believed that their government was competent to fix the problems government is actually supposed to fix.

We learned something very important during and after 2005’s Hurricane Katrina, which smacked down New Orleans.

We learned that if you truly want to be safe from a disaster, you cannot depend on the government to bail you out.

In that case, the single most corrupt city in the single most corrupt state in the entire nation was depending on the usual slate of clowns they had elected to step up and show some leadership–and it didn’t happen.

So they blamed George Bush, who happened to be President.

Never mind that first response to things like Hurricanes and pandemics is from the local authorities.

And in absolute fairness to this President, that is still the case.

It should tell you something about this country that even after the thorough screwing the healthcare system in this nation has taken from the current administration in terms of economics, the Ebola “outbreak” was limited, even though our treatments for this strain of the virus are only experimental.

It goes to show you what a little attention to cleanliness and public health will do. If this had been the late 19th century, the numbers might have been a stark contrast.

The point here is that Ebola is just another in the continuum of threats we face every day, and it doesn’t even rank as high up on the list as bad driving. Not nearly as high.

Those politicians who are seeking some advantage from the very small incident that occurred in Texas are going to find that the American public is a lot smarter than they are.

Can radical jihadists attack the United States with some bio-terror threat?

Of course. So can anybody else who wants to—somebody like the late Tim McVeigh whose weapon of choice was fertilizer and diesel fuel in Oklahoma City. You don’t have to be too technically sophisticated; and if you are willing to die in the process, it’s even easier.

There is, however, a limit to the number of people who are willing to kill themselves along with you.

Here are the medical facts of life.

When we needed an antibiotic in the world, a Scottish scientist discovered penicillin in a moldy petri dish. Scientists from the Northern Regional Research Lab in Peoria, Illinois during World War Two figured out from a moldy cantaloupe how to mass produce it.

Breaking: Students Flee Washington High School During Reported School Shooting

UPDATE: Reuters reports the suspect was killed after having injured at least two individuals on the campus. The victims were reportedly airlifted from the school to a hospital for treatment.

 

According to breaking reports, a Marysville, Wash., high school was the scene of the nation’s latest active shooting. KIRO reports the Marysville Pilchuck High School was locked down Friday morning after a teacher and multiple students reported hearing gunshots.

The school district issued a statement regarding the incident.

“The Marysville Pilchuck High School is currently in lockdown due to an emergency situation,” the statement read. “Police and emergency services have responded. The Marysville School District lock down procedures will remain in effect at Marysville Pilchuck until further notice from law enforcement. We will continue to forward communication in cooperation with law enforcement.”

One father driving his daughter to school described the frantic scene on nearby roads as first responders rushed to the school.

Casey Blakley said he had to pull to the side of the street “about every 30 seconds” to make way for emergency vehicles. He also recalled seeing a group of students who he believed had escaped the school before it was locked down.

“There were a bunch of kids on the next block that apparently fled the school,” he said. “They were all huddled together talking to cars that drove by.”

Local media reported students were evacuated from the school in a single-file line upon the arrival of law enforcement.

Early reports indicate the shooter opened fire near the school’s cafeteria.

This is a developing story and will be updated as more details are made available.

Just-Revealed News About The NYC Ebola Patient Totally Undermines Obama’s Protection Plan

NYC Ebola

There will certainly be a lot to discuss today as a committee in the House of Representatives examines how federal agencies are responding to the Ebola crisis.

Front and center in the House hearing will be the newly identified Ebola case in New York City. A doctor who recently returned from an international aid mission in Africa is now undergoing treatment at a New York hospital after testing positive for the virus.

No doubt, the session will address the airport screening process that the Obama administration points to as a primary means of protecting the country from an Ebola outbreak. The real effectiveness of this screening will likely be questioned in light of the revelation that the Ebola-infected doctor now in quarantine went through the airport screening and was not detained — he was allowed to pass and go on with his daily activities.

The fact that the airport screening failed to identify the doctor, 33-year old Craig Spencer, as a carrier of the virus was made known by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC):

In a statement, the CDC cast further doubt on the ability of the airport screening process to identify Ebola carriers:

The doctor “went through multiple layers of screening and did not have a fever or other symptoms of illness,” the CDC said in a statement.

So, the CDC acknowledges that “enhanced screening” didn’t work in the doctor’s case, which leads one to reasonably ask how many other Ebola carriers have been cleared through airport screening even though they’re infected.

As Reuters reports, Dr. Spencer is now in quarantine in New York City’s Bellevue Hospital, while others with whom he had contact are in isolation for close monitoring:

Three people who had close contact with Spencer, a physician for the humanitarian group Doctors Without Borders, were quarantined for observation – one of them, his fiancée, at the same hospital – but all were still healthy, officials said.

The Ebola diagnosis in the nation’s most populous city renewed concerns about the spread of the disease in the United States, where the three previous cases occurred in Texas.

Disease detectives are moving through the Big Apple in search of other people with whom Dr. Spencer may have come into contact between the time of his return from West Africa and his admission to the hospital.

Reportedly, the doctor travelled on subways, took Uber rides and even went bowling the day before his Ebola symptoms clearly manifested.

Brawl Erupts Between Michael Brown’s Family Members

michaelbrownassault2

A physical assault erupted among family members of Michael Brown over the rights to sell merchandise bearing his image. Brown was killed in a shooting incident this past summer.

Fox 2 in St. Louis reported Michael Brown’s mother, Lesley McSpadden, confronted Brown’s cousin, Tony Petty, and grandmother, Pearlie Gordon, who were selling t-shirts and other Michael Brown memorabilia at a BBQ establishment close to where Brown was killed.

McSpadden reportedly yelled at them, saying, “You can’t sell this s–t!,” according to one witness. One of the relatives demanded that McSpadden produce a patent. Fox 2 notes that a police report describes the incident becoming so violent that McSpadden assaulted Petty with a metal pipe or pole, resulting in a 911 call.

Petty was taken to a local hospital. No arrests had been made. According to Fox 2, McSpadden said in a statement she didn’t want images of her deceased son to be part of any “self-serving business or political actions.”

McSpadden appeared at a press conference in St. Louis in August with MSNBC host and president of the National Action Network, Reverend Al Sharpton. She appeared with Sharpton a second time last month at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.

Earlier this week, Western Journalism reported the officer who shot and ultimately killed Brown, Darren Wilson, will likely not face any charges for civil rights violations. An autopsy report suggests that Brown assaulted Wilson and tried to take away his firearm before he was shot.
