CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A woman in West Virginia fatally shot a man who began firing an AR-15-style rifle into a crowd of people that had gathered for a party, authorities said.
Dennis Butler, 37, was killed Wednesday night after he pulled out the rifle and began shooting at dozens of people attending the birthday-graduation party outside an apartment complex in the city of Charleston, police said in a statement.
The woman, who was attending the party, drew a pistol and fired, killing Butler, the statement said. No one at the party was injured.
“Instead of running from the threat, she engaged with the threat and saved several lives last night,” Chief of Detectives Tony Hazelett told news outlets Thursday.
I am sooooooooooo tired of political hacks who seemingly cannot wait for a tragedy to find a camera and share their emotions, and call for this legislation, or policy. Frankly these men and women should STFU!
Instead of the usual crocodile tears and blah, LOOK AT ME, blah, I CARE, blah WE MUST TAKE ACTION bullshit, how about this. How about a few Congressmen, Senators, sate legislators, governors meet, find good ideas, that will work, and write some simple, concise, very easy to understand laws. Then when it is writtenhold a press conference, read the bill, or bills, and make an intellectual case for the new laws. In other words actually BE LEADERS!
In other words DO THEIR DAMNED JOBS! Have some priorities! I am quite sure, they could accomplish this, and actually do some good things. Democrats, Republicans, does not matter. This is what I would be doing were I in Congress, or my state legislator I would be doing that this morning. I am sure many of my readers would be doing the same. Why can’t our politicians?
Sony Pictures reportedly took a stand against China’s censorship during the December 2021 release of Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Per Hollywood trade publication, Puck, Sony Pictures refused to make changes to the blockbuster movie in order to secure a release in China. At the heart of the movie’s climax are patriotic scenes at the Statue of Liberty, which didn’t sit well with China’s National Film Administration, which answers to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
Well, good for Sony, their balls are far larger than John Cena’s and many corporate cowards who think freedom is OK, but cash is better somehow. But, it gets better`
The CCP asked Sony Pictures to remove scenes that showed Peter Parker and co. fighting the villains on top of the Statue of Liberty. Sony Pictures did not oblige.
So the CCP attempted to come to a compromise. They asked Sony Pictures to minimize or darken the statue so that it wouldn’t be as noticeable. Once again, Sony Pictures stood its ground. As a result, the movie was banned in China.
Bravo!Sony lost some serious coin on this BUT, they still made a cool $800, million, so….Suck it China!
Thank Gaia for Oregon Democrats. They have, in their magnanimity, at long last imparted dignity to menstruation. Governor Kate Brown signed the Menstrual Dignity Act, and finally, the women of Oregon can … menstruate with dignity?
That’s Oregon-speak for giving out free sanitary products.
Stupid? You bet. But that’s not the dumbest part – not by a long shot. Under the Act, the boys’ rooms in every school in the state will boast tampon dispensers.
Read all about it at The Outkick It seems Steele has been treated FAR differently, and not in a positive way, than ESPN’s Liberal “talents”. Remember kids, Leftism is an ideology of double standards and hypocrisy
ESPN anchor Sage Steele is suing the network, alleging that it retaliated against her for exercising her free speech rights during a podcast with Jay Cutler in 2021.
Steele says ESPN benched her, gave her an unofficial suspension, for questioning the company’s vaccine mandate and commenting on Barack Obama identifying as black.
Steele, the only openly conservative host at the network, alleges that ESPN uses selective enforcement on disciplinary issues. She’s right.
Here are eight examples:
While at ESPN, Jemele Hill called then-President Donald Trump a “white supremacist.”
Contrary to what Hill defenders are tweeting today, ESPN did not discipline Hill for this comment. Instead, ESPN suspended her when she later encouraged sponsors to boycott the NFL, an ESPN partner.
“Change happens when advertisers are impacted,” Hill wrote. “If you feel strongly about [Cowboys owner Jerry Jones’] statement, boycott his advertisers.”
ESPN allowed Hill to call Trump a “white supremacist,” but benched Steele for questioning Obama. Ahh.
NBC News column: DeSantis is a ‘clearer danger than Trump,’ pushing ‘thought control’ like ‘Nazi Germany’
An NBC News opinion column asserted Wednesday that Gov. Ron DeSantis’ efforts to ban CRT and protect young children from being taught about gender and sexuality in inappropriate ways in public schools, represents “thought control that has happened” in “Nazi Germany” or “today’s China.”
Written by former federal prosecutor Dennis Aftergut, the opinion piece, titled “Ron DeSantis has taken Trump’s playbook — and made it much more dangerous,” discussed how the Florida Republican has turned Trump’s “divisive talk into real (and really harmful) action” that mirrors action done in “totalitarian societies.”
