Caught on camera: Terrifying moment
hooded gunman pointed his weapon

seconds before he shot him dead

This is the moment a gunman was caught on CCTV just seconds before shooting a taxi driver. The bearded man jumped into the back of a-cab in the Bronx area of New York in the early hours of Sunday, police have said. He then pulled out a gun and threatened driver Raphael Martinez, 54, in his cab around 5.10am when the driver did not understand his demands. The attack was captured on the in-car security cameras. According to the New York Post, police said he shot at the cab driver five times, hitting him twice, before waiting until

Comments:
Headline says cabbie is dead, article text says he´s in "stable condition." But Mayor Bloomberg might wonder, is that a supersize soda on the seat next to the criminal?

The weapon used in this horrible, horrible crime is probably street bought like most illegal drugs; no gun control law will stop people like this. If he had a knife, he would have inflicted multiple stab wounds. Thank you God, for not letting this INNOCENT PERSON die in this senseless attack and thank you for the camera in the taxi that will lead the the capture of this animal. May he never get out of prison, since his intent was surely to murder Mr. Martinez.

I´m glad to see that all of Nanny Bloombergs Gun Control Laws stopped this crime.

Thank God that the man lived, and pray for his recovery...

Making everyone take more extensive background checks and limiting us all to firearms that hold seven rounds or less would have prevented this. s/.

Maybe Holder will tell the judge not to consider the death penalty in this case either.

He usually holds the gun sideways and over his head so this was not his normal position.

1. Wait -- security cameras didn´t stop the crime? NYC gun laws didn´t stop the crime? Laws against attempted murder didn´t stop the crime? Laws against theft didn´t stop the crime? Laws against assault didn´t stop the crime? But -- why not?

2. Considering the pointless depravity and indifference to the victim ol´ Trayvon 2nd showed here, I´d have no problem voting for capital punishment for him.

3. Far past time to draw some lines in defense of civilization -- though such perps obviously have little use for it.

4. Uhhh, how is it that a readily-applicable identifying characteristic of the criminal isn´t mentioned? [That he´s right-handed. What did you think I meant?]

The Internal Revenue Service is demanding that Ron Paul´s Campaign for Liberty organization hand over its list of contributors, and has fined the non-profit organization $12,900 for failing to give names on its annual IRS filing. "There is no legitimate reason for the IRS to know who donates to Campaign for Liberty," the organization´s Communications Director Megan Stiles told the Washington Examiner in an e-mail April 15.

Schools in Birmingham are illegally segregating pupils, discriminating against non-Muslim students and restricting the GCSE syllabus to “comply with conservative Islamic teaching”, an official report leaked to The Telegraph discloses. Department for Education inspectors said that girls in a school at the centre of the so-called “Trojan Horse” plot were forced to sit at the back of the class, some Christian pupils were left to “teach themselves” and an extremist preacher was invited to speak to children. The report, into three schools in the city, follows weeks of controversy over the alleged plot to “Islamise” secular schools in Birmingham

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our
