Attacks target polio teams in east Afghanistan, 5 killed
Source: AP

Gunmen on Tuesday targeted an anti-polio drive in eastern Afghanistan, killing at least five members of two vaccination teams in separate attacks, officials said.

Along with the five killed, at least four members of the polio vaccination teams were wounded, said Dr. Jan Mohammad, who coordinates the anti-polio drive for the country’s east. Khogyani called the attacks cowardly, adding that two of the wounded were in critical condition.

Afghanistan and neighboring Pakistan are the only two remaining countries in the world where polio is endemic, after Nigeria was last year declared free of the virus.

In March, the Islamic State group said it shot and killed three women who were part of a polio vaccination team, also in Jalalabad, the capital of Afghanistan’s Nangarhar province.

Though not uncommon in Afghanistan, attacks on polio vaccination teams are more frequent in Pakistan, where the Pakistani Taliban and other militants regularly stage attacks on polio teams and security forces escorting them. They also target vaccination centers and health workers, claiming that anti-polio drives are part of an alleged Western conspiracy to sterilize children or collect intelligence.

Last week, two policemen who were providing security to polio vaccinators were shot and killed in northwest Pakistan.

Brazen shoplifter loads up at Walgreens in front of security, leaves on bike
https://nypost.com/2021/06/15/thief-sho ... s-on-bike/
By Jorge Fitz-Gibbon


A brazen shoplifter was caught on video stuffing items into a garbage bag inside a San Francisco Walgreens and then pedaling off on his bike — in front of a security guard who simply recorded the theft on his phone.

The shocking footage, posted on Twitter by KGO-TV reporter Lyanne Melendez, shows the unidentified thief filling up on stolen goods as two people — one apparently a security guard — stand in the aisle with their phones out.

The crook then hops on his bike and pedals past the pair, with the guard making a failed attempt to grab the bag before the man bikes to the automatic front door and takes off.
This is what weakening our police and legalizing everything for the criminal has done to some of our cities. Pretty soon this is going to drive all the stores out of the city. it is sick.

"Weakening our police"

The American police is practically the strongest military on Earth. What do you want, for them to become 40k Space Marines? The whole reason why people are protesting them is because they have a nasty tendency to act like Gestapo agents (which rings of hypocrisy to the rest of the world when we call ourselves the "Land of the Free") and the reason why criminals are so brazen is because tens of millions of people are trapped between poverty and death— absolutely not helped by a pandemic and massive recession further, so why bother caring what happens to themselves?

We ought to have doubled-down on the welfare state. People wouldn't be stealing so much shit if they weren't desperate for the basics (actually, I know EXACTLY what should've happened in America, but that ship has sailed). Making the police even stronger and more militarized is only going to make the problem worse and make communities weaker because now everyone's living in fear. Like, the absolute most ass-backwards way to resolve the problem. Like if you have a bad flu or COVID and you say "I know what'll make me better: chemotherapy."

But I wouldn't expect anything less from Americans, who have a punishment & retribution fetish.

Fun fact: crime was VASTLY worse in America when the left was true, but for reasons you wouldn't immediately expect. There was a brief period when crime rates crashed and the police weren't hypermilitarized. We tend to think of that time pretty fondly.


I mean zero disrespect to you, though.
And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future

Tori B. Powell 35 mins ago

One person was killed and 12 more were injured Thursday after a gunman went on a shooting spree across cities in the West Valley area of Arizona, police said. A suspect has been taken into custody, and officials said they believe he is the only shooter.


At around 11 a.m. local time, police officers in Peoria, Arizona, responded to reports of a person in a white SUV who had fired at another vehicle, Sergeant Brandon Sheffert of the Peoria Police Department said during a preliminary press briefing on Thursday. Over the next hour and a half, the suspect fired shots at seven more locations before he was taken into custody, Sheffert said.

The suspect was taken into custody around 12:42 p.m. local time in Surprise, Arizona, and "complied completely" with law enforcement, Sheffert said. He has not yet been named, but police said he is an adult male. Sheffert said a weapon was recovered from the suspect's vehicle.

Four people were shot, including the deceased victim, and nine other people were injured. Police did not specify how the other nine were injured, but said all 12 of the other victims are expected to recover. Multiple hospitals in the area were placed on a temporary lockdown as a result of the shootings, but it has since been lifted. ..................................

Driver rams cyclists in Arizona race, critically injuring 6
Source: AP

SHOW LOW, Ariz. (AP) — A driver in a pickup truck plowed into bicyclists competing in a community road race in Arizona on Saturday, critically injuring several riders before police chased down the driver and shot him outside a nearby hardware store, police said.

Six cyclists were taken to a hospital in critical condition after the crash in the mountain town of Show Low, about a three-hour drive northeast of Phoenix, police said. At least two others went to the hospital themselves.

The suspect, a 35-year-old man, also was hospitalized in critical but stable condition. The identities of the suspect and victims were not immediately released.

A Ford pickup truck struck the bicyclists about 7:25 a.m. in downtown Show Low during the annual 58-mile (93-kilometer) Bike the Bluff race, then fled, police said. Officers pursued the driver and tried to stop him before he was shot, authorities said.

Days after President Joe Biden signed a bill recognising Juneteenth as a federal holiday, the country recorded a spate of gun violence across different states during its celebration over the weekend.

Violent incidents related to Juneteenth were reported in California, South Carolina, Michigan and Colorado, while Louisiana and Philadelphia recorded unrelated incidents of shooting. In all, at least seven people were killed and 21 injured in gun violence over the weekend.

The shooting in Oakland, California occurred around 6.30pm about a mile from Lake Merritt Amphitheater where hundreds had gathered throughout the day to commemorate 19 June, 1865, as the day when roughly 2,000 Union Army soldiers landed at Galveston, Texas, with news that enslaved African Americans were now free.

Suspect guarding illegal marijuana grow shoots at deputy's patrol car


It happened on May 27, 2021, at about 8:35 pm, when a deputy from the Barstow Sheriff’s Station responded to a call for service in the 46000 block of Tonopah Street in Newberry Springs. Sheriff’s officials said the deputy was in the 47000 block of Holcomb Trail when he discovered a possible illegal marijuana cultivation operation.

“As the deputy made a U-turn, the suspect, Adolfo Sanchez-Morales, shot at him striking the patrol vehicle. The bullet went through the driver’s side of the windshield and exited the front passenger side window,” stated a sheriff’s news release.

Multiple law enforcement agencies from various departments responded to assist in the search and the suspect was located hiding in the desert. Sheriff’s officials said a .45 caliber semi-automatic handgun was found nearby where he buried it.

There are over 500 active outdoor marijuana grows in San Bernardino County. Residents, off-roaders and recreationalists should use caution and avoid the area of illegal outdoor marijuana grows as they pose a significant safety risk. The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department is working expediently as possible to address the issue.

Florida man pulls gun at Starbucks over cream cheese

by Associated Press
9:40 PM EDT, Tue June 22, 2021
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — An angry Florida man pulled a gun on a drive-thru worker because they forgot the cream cheese with his bagel, according to Miami Gardens Police. The employee just happened to be the daughter of the police chief.

Police said the man became angry at a Starbucks drive-thru when they messed up his order earlier this week. He returned to the window, screaming at the employee. She asked whether he had paid for the cream cheese, at which point he became enraged and pulled out a gun, according to an arrest report.

Chief Delma Noel-Pratt told CBS4 that the experience traumatized her 23-year-old daughter. The chief’s daughter told police that the man did not point the gun at her, but that she feared he would hurt her if she didn’t give him the cream cheese.

“She felt in fear of her life,” Noel-Pratt said. ”It was upsetting to me to know that someone would go to that extreme not having cream cheese on his bagel.”
