    The Sydney hostage taker is ” sheikh Haron”


  3. DandyTIger says:

    The hostage taking is in a Lindt cafe. There should be extra punishment for that alone.

    Kitties are fed, only one of my legs is bleeding. Not bad.

    I’ve been following the #sydneysiege which has been confirming info before Fox News. Dealing with a nutjob, it seems……

    • DeniseVB says:

      David Koch has built more theaters and hospital wings, not to mention donating millions to renovate NYC’s aging museums ….. and Baba WaWa hits him for donating to Republicans ?

      Koch built this at Lincoln Center …

    • Somebody says:

      Holy cow! The man is pure evil, he wants fiscal responsibility, he’s concerned with our massive debt, he fears economic collapse……OMG how can such an evil creature walk the streets!

      Poor Barbara Wawa, I guess she’s getting too old for gotchas. Oh well I’m sure there was plenty of creative editing, no way they can let an evil Koch brother come off as level headed.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Did she imply to him you can’t be a social “liberal” if you donate to the GOP ? He handled that well … I’m a libertarian πŸ˜‰

    • DandyTIger says:

      He and his brother are libertarians. One of the biggest contributors to the ACLU. But like a lot of libertarians, they lean more towards Repubs than Dems, for now at least. So they tend to give more to the GOP. They are in the oil/energy business of course, so that makes them easy targets of the left. Just like they target the Rockefeller’s. Oh wait. The narrative created by the left that the Koch Bros. are evil is great propaganda that does bring in the Dem cash. But if you’re a journalist or anyone with a brain, you’re not actually supposed to believe the propaganda.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Many sources now confirming one of the dead is the gunman. Not sure about the others, hostage or police ?

          Reading between the lines at the press conference — bastard mongrel realised he wasn’t going to get what he wanted so he started shooting. Cops went in, killed him. One cop shot, he’s okay. 2 hostages killed. Unknown number hurt, in hospital.

          Most important thing — the human excrement is dead. And no hostage was killed by the cops – because our filthy left wing community is itching to find a way to blame anyone but this murdering bastard.

          Cops and politicians being guarded with info (God save me from the stupidity and inanity of journalists) because of the ongoing investigation but like I said — reading between the lines it’s clear the cops only went in because people started dying.

          Thanks for all the good wishes. It’s a sad day.

          • Underwhelmed says:

            Apparently the triggering incident was the escape of more hostages. He was losing control of the situation and started killing.

          • DeniseVB says:

            I’m so glad it’s over. You had the world’s hearts and minds with you because it has and can happen anywhere. Your police saved many lives while risking their own ❀

          • Underwhelmed says:

            Thanks, Denise! It was bad, but it could have been a lot worse. Now we have to do some serious thinking about certain judicial processes here, because the true tragedy is that this didn’t have to happen. The guy was evil, and had no business being free on the streets or even still in this country.

          • votermom says:

            The guy was evil, and had no business being free on the streets or even still in this country.

            It was very irresponsible to have let him walk on bail.

          • Underwhelmed says:

            Oh, the ongoing battles over bail laws and their laxity … hopefully this event will tip the balance to the side of safety of the many.

            Word is that the cafe manager tried to disarm the terrorist when he dozed off. Terrorist killed him, killed a 38 yr old mother of 3, shot others (at this point nothing life threatening) – cops deployed at gunfire and took him out.

            This piece of excrement was known to the authorities. Current laws prevented them from taking appropriate action against him – and the leftwing bastardry in this country (all tarred with the same brush, world wide) have made it impossible for them to do anything about those laws, this mongrel, and all the others like him. This event might change that too.

            We’re already getting the equivalent of the ‘it was only workplace violence’ excuse in the morally corrupt media.

            Not sure why you keep ending up in the spam cellar, but I’ll keep letting you out when I find you down there.

          • Underwhelmed says:

            Thanks, Klown! Sorry for putting you to extra work. BTW — when we do we get updated photos of the 3 amigos?

    I think why I was so fascinated by the #SydneySeige, you betcha’ it can happen here too. With hopes we haven’t neutered the police departments completely if it does. Hope the snowflakes calling for dead police last weekend were paying attention.

    From Jezebel:

    This is my truth.

    It was just after my junior year in college. I had an internship in labor relations at an automobile plant in Warren, Ohio. A New Yorker from birth, I was out of my element. I tried to find community to anchor my summer in Warren. I did what was familiar: I went to shul. One family invited me over for Shabbat dinner. Dutifully and hopefully, I went. They also invited a young man. He was nice enough. So, when this “nice Jewish guy” invited me for dinner, I said, “Sure.”

    A few days later, I went to his apartment. And that’s where it happened. He tried to rape me. I managed to get out after a struggle, but the emotional scarring was deep.

    I didn’t report it. I thought it was my fault. I thought I should have known better. I should have been smarter.

    I carried it with me for years and years. The shame and the fear faded but never erased completely as I graduated from college and law school, then became a lawyer, a teacher and a union leader.

    Through it all, I’ve learned that it’s okay to say “no.” You can go to the police, report it. And it does get better.

    So she wasn’t raped. She doesn’t mention how hard the struggle was or whether he used threats or physically harmed her. But she had deep emotional scarring from the incident.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Sadly with these new feminist that faint at the mere mention of a male interested in a relationship, you don’t know if you should take anything they say seriously. Of course unwanted, especially, aggressive affection or attempts at affection are an issue. Where the line is where you report it is a good discussion to have. But that’s not what’s going on here. She doesn’t mention what sort of struggle it was, how physical or not, because it doesn’t matter. A guy just looking at her longingly is an assault now. You’re supposed to have a permission verbal exchange for every breath, every glance, every motion towards each other, and on and on. We’ve long since crossed the line into OCD sex territory.

    Interesting supreme court ruling:

    8 to 1 ruling that the police can stop a car and search based on a mistaken ID of the car without violating the 4th amendment. Well, there’s a bit more to it. A bag of cocaine always makes for a fun traffic stop.
