Two teenagers attempting a home robbery in Hillsborough County were shot by a resident equipped with a legal firearm Saturday evening. One of the teenagers died. The other is in critical condition, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office. At around 7:30 p.m., deputies responded to a call at the Seasons at Westchase apartment complex in the 12000 block of Citrus Falls Circle. A man and his fiancé told deputies that two young men broke through the screen on their back patio and entered the home through an unlocked door, a news release said. One of the intruders, who held a gun, “made demands” to the man and his fiancé,

What a poorly written headline; makes it seem like the homeowner shot two innocent teens. No, he shot two thugs breaking into his home, one of whom was brandishing a firearm.

No matter what else, if you are in someone else's home, with a gun, threatening them - you deserve whatever bad things happen, including assuming room temperature. Good outcome, from the information that we have so far. But, sometimes things come up in an investigation.

"Two teenagers attempting a home robbery in Hillsborough County were shot by a resident equipped with a legal firearm Saturday evening." What's an illegal firearm?

Yup #1, they just can't resist the potential to play mind games in the hope that people will read the headline, see reinforcement for preconceived notions eliminating any need to read the article. I'm pretty sure this was deliberate and not just bad writing.

FTA: "All four suspects, ages 16 and 17, are students at Gaither High School...." More violent minor criminals. What do they learn in school? The other two in the car, waiting for the first two to bring the booty, deserve worse than juvenile hall. All four are bad machines that need fixing. Well, three of the four. The fourth is pretty well set; his short life of crime is over. Tag him and bag him. If strangers break into your home brandishing guns, you can safely assume that they aren't there to collect for Little Sisters of the Poor. The only effective defense against an armed intruder is a firearm with sufficient power to incapacitate the attacker instantly. Apparently, that's what happened here: one dead, one well shot, the getaway car drivers in a world of Schiff. What gets these kids started in crime? According to an inmate in a prison documentary, older criminals are actually afraid of the soulless younger criminals of today.

It's great that the man and his fiancé were unharmed. It's sad that the thugs were so stupid. One dead, one critical, and two whose lies are probably ruined for taking part in it.

No one wakes up and wants to kill another person. Their lives are changed forever because somebody didn't raise their kids right. Most of the ferals are being 'housed' by grandmothers who have no control over them. Their mothers are on drugs, in jail, or dead. If you grow up getting everything free and one day free stops, you take it. No empathy.

LAKE WORTH BEACH, Fla. — “Let me out! Let me out! Ohhh! Ohhh! Ohhh!” When a Florida neighbor heard those chilling cries, the logical next step was to call 911. Four Palm Beach County Sheriff’s deputies pulled up and confronted a man who had his wife’s car on blocks in his driveway. In a minute, the mystery was solved. The man walked inside and returned with his parrot. A video, posted online, does not identify the individuals involved or reveal the location of the incident, except to say it occurred Dec. 29 in the Lake Worth Beach, Florida, area.

With everyone wondering if Iran and the US will go to war it's pertinent to understand both nations are already in an undeclared conflict going back more than 40 years. "And often, it’s been a war that our political and intelligence elites have denied exists." (Snip) The obvious question is why this conflict, which has claimed thousands of lives has remained in a state of limbo and why elites are at pains to deny it exists. One possible answer is that the combatants prefer it that way. Iran for its part is heavily engaged in proxy war with Saudi Arabia in far flung theaters

Often the choice about war isn't whether or not, but sooner or later. By taking preemptive action in the form of a targeted assassination of a top Iranian general, President Trump may have pre-empted far worse conflict in the future. Of course it is a risk, but it is a well-calculated one. Pre-empting an Inevitable War with Iran Most of the great wars of the past would have been far less bloody had they begun sooner. That emphatically is true of the First World War: if Germany had launched a preemptive assault on France during the First Morocco Crisis of 1905, before Britain had signed the Entente Cordiale with France

The traitor class has been particularly vocal ever since Qasem Soleimani was killed. The ever-winsome Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) tweeted Friday: “We are outraged the president would assassinate a foreign official, possibly setting off another war without Congressional authorization and has zero plan to deal with the consequences.” Wait, what? Soleimani was a “foreign official”? Isn’t Ilhan Omar aware that Soleimani was no staid and stolid Iranian “official” sitting bored behind a desk somewhere in Tehran, but was responsible for the deaths of over 600 U.S. soldiers in Iraq? Yes, she does know, and clearly she doesn’t care. We know that she knows because

Although Qassem Soleimani was blown to bits in the US drone strike, the top Iranian commander was identified by this blood-red ring, which was still attached to a finger on his ash-covered hand, according to reports. The major general, who was among several people killed in the airstrike as he was leaving Baghdad airport, was seen wearing the same gaudy bauble in earlier photos of him alive. A graphic photo shows the oversized ring with on the possibly severed, bloodied hand lying on grass at the scene of the attack.

Demonstrating that it learned nothing from the backlash after it called ISIS top dog Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi an “austere religious scholar,” the Washington Post called Qasem Soleimani, who was killed today in a U.S. airstrike in Baghdad, Iran’s “most revered military leader.” If Soleimani, who as head of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps' Quds Force was responsible for aiding numerous jihad terror activities worldwide, was revered at all, it was more by the Obama foreign policy team that saw him and his government as a valid partner for negotiations than by anyone in Iran. And tonight, the Obama team and the entire U.S. foreign policy

Chad Wolf, the acting Secretary of Homeland Security "is taking aim at new laws in New York and New Jersey that allow immigrants to get driver's licenses without proof they are in the U.S. legally, and restrict data sharing with federal authorities," according to a report from the Associated Press. Wolf sent a memo within the department requesting "a department-wide study on how the laws affect its enforcement efforts." New York is the 13th state that has authorized illegal immigrants to obtain driver's licenses. In addition to giving illegals a state-issued license, the New York state law actually prohibits the New York Department of Motor Vehicles

Ever since it was discovered that several armed churchgoers drew their weapons to stop a gunman at a church in Texas last week, the anti-gun mainstream media types have been trying to tell the public that armed, law-abiding citizens are a bad thing. The New Year's Day installment of media malpractice hyperbole arrives courtesy of the nauseatingly leftist USA Today: "@USATODAY Opinion: Jack Wilson is exactly the type of person you want around with a gun because he's a firearms instructor. But we know nothing about the at least six other parishioners who also appeared to draw their handguns. And that's terrifying."

Out of everything that happened, there is one moment Jack Wilson keeps replaying. "Probably Richard [White] getting shot, and knowing at that point, as the shooter turned toward Tony [Wallace], that this is gonna happen," said Wilson.

Weirdly absent from much of the professional speculation about where and how Iran will exact its promised “severe revenge” for the U.S. drone strike killing of Quds Force Gen. Qassem Suleimani is mention of the dead man’s highly suggestive hint. During a time of intense saber rattling between Iran and President Donald Trump in July 2018, Suleimani gave a speech during which he called out the American president: “Mr. Gambler, Trump! I’m telling you that we are close to you, exactly where you wouldn’t think that we are.” So what might Suleimani have meant when he suggested his reach was closer than we think?

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — In a rare display of emotion from the typically reserved and measured supreme leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei cried openly Monday at the funeral of slain Gen. Qassem Soleimani, his most important military commander with whom he shared a deep bond. “Oh Allah, they are in need of your mercy, and you are exalted above punishing your servants,” Khamenei said in prayer as he stood over a flag-draped casket with the remains of Soleimani, who was killed in a U.S. drone strike in Iraq on Friday. Khamenei’s voice cracked under the weight of the

The chaos erupted in Soleimani’s hometown of Kerman where tens of thousands of mourners packed the streets for the funeral procession of the slain Quds Force general. It wasn’t clear what prompted the stampede, but video of the scene showed people lying in the street as others rushed to their aid. Iranian state media reported that as many as 40 people were killed

It is hard to understand Iran Supreme Leader Khamenei’s blunder in attacking the US Embassy in Baghdad. He either believed Trump was weakened by his impeachment, as western liberal Media breathlessly and continuously reported, or he might have been misled by John Kerry’s incompetent advice (apparently Kerry met again with Khamenei’s emissaries in Paris just few weeks ago). Whatever the reasons, his goal of triggering a limited war with America to rally his people around the regime has failed miserably. Iran desperately wanted a war -- drone attacks on Saudi Arabia’s heart of oil production, false-flag hits on oil tankers, unrest in Yemen – all aimed at this goal.

A well-known Islamic religious leader in Texas has been busted for sexually assaulting four children—though authorities believe he’s victimized others. Mohamed Omar Ali, a 59-year-old Somali national, was arrested Friday on charges of sexual assault of a child and sexual indecency of a child after an investigation was launched in September, Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls told reporters at a press conference Monday. Nehls described Ali as a popular “religious leader” and spent time at several mosques in Fort Bend County, as well as in greater Houston. Investigators believe Ali also victimized other children dating back to 2013 after he arrived in the US.

The U.S. Air Force has performed a huge show of strength by launching 52 fully-armed Lightning II stealth fighters in a single wave from a base in Utah. The F-35A aircraft, which are worth a total of $4.2 billion, took off in quick succession from the Hill Air Force Base in Utah on Monday as tensions mount in the Middle East over the killing of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani. Fifty two is the number of American diplomats and civilians seized by Iran during the 1979 hostage crisis, and the number of targets that Trump has threatened to strike in Iran if the regime retaliates over Soleimani's death.

Pundits wrote off Sen. Bernie Sanders’s campaign back in October after his heart attack evoked the risks of nominating a candidate who would turn 80 during the first year of his presidency. But since then, Sanders has made a remarkable comeback — and not just in terms of his health. Having climbed to second place nationally and raised a whopping $34.5 million in the fourth quarter, he now finds himself leading in New Hampshire and tied for first place in Iowa, according to the latest CBS/YouGov poll. Perhaps Joe Biden, who enjoys much stronger support among black voters, is still in a better position to win the Democratic nomination.

Did you know that CNN has a reporter on the “disinformation” beat? I’ll skip the cheap joke about his never having to leave the office, and note that the network is now grousing about the Christian conservative satire site the Babylon Bee, which has earned the ire of a number of liberals for making jokes at their expense. The story drawing CNN’s outrage — “Democrats Call For Flags To Be Flown At Half-Mast To Grieve Death Of Soleimani” — is good satire. It slightly exaggerates the reaction many on the left have had to the killing of the Iranian mass murderer. Anyone who read the Washington Post’s headline
