Prison inmates across the country are preparing to go on strike by refusing to eat or work, as a way to protest what they call ‘prison slavery’ and poor conditions.
Though the extent of the planned strike is not known, prisoners in at least 17 states say they will be taking part in coordinated action, which will begin on Tuesday and last through September 9.
Organizers say the strike is partly in response to the April riot in South Carolina’s Lee Correctional Institution, where seven inmates were killed by other prisoners when gang tensions boiled over.
…In fact, only about 20% of the crime guns seized last year were domestically sourced and less than 9% of all the firearms seized in 2017 were sourced to Canada.

The police arrested a suspect after the murder of a doctor in his medical practice in the German city of Offenburg in the southwestern state of Baden-Württemberg.

Las Vegas police can’t figure it out. Their ten-month review of the life and habits of gunman Stephen Paddock, who killed 58 people when he sprayed bullets on an outdoor concert last summer, does not suggest a motive, they say.

Paddock’s high-stakes gambling habit had cost him some $1.5 million over the two years before his rampage, according to the police report.

Gang violence and crime in the Windy City have not gone away under Rahm Emanuel’s leadership, though some progress has been made in specific categories of crime. Still, the endemic problems are enough to have altered the lives of many of Chicago’s residents, seemingly in a permanent fashion. The local CBS outlet looked at the effect this has had on some families and discovered some truly heartbreaking stories. In Lawndale, on the City’s west side, some parents report that they’ve become so desperate that they’ve taken to “hiding their children” rather than risking their being injured or killed in the act of simply playing or enjoying a normal childhood.
Fifty percent of all of their murders were gang and drug related, with the predominate gang members being illegal aliens. I can only wonder how Silicon Valley dotcomer’s who are paying over half a million bucks for a home and commute over four hours a day to San Jose like living in that violent environment?
A Rochester man is in custody after allegedly removing both eyes of a relative and beating the man so severely most of his teeth were knocked out.

Nine hours after he’d made his predictably weak-kneed virtue-signaling statement to council on Sunday’s tragic Danforth Ave. shooting, Mayor John Tory had not deviated from his ban-the-illegal-handgun message as the root of gun violence in Toronto.
The Danforth shooting is about Islam and the cost of importing Islam to this country.
