Food delivery driver shoots teen who allegedly robbed him at gunpoint in SW Houston

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — A teen was shot by the food delivery driver he robbed at gunpoint in southwest Houston, police say.

It happened around 10 p.m. Monday at the Village of Fondren Apartments in the 6200 block of West Airport.

Authorities told ABC13 the food delivery driver was waiting on the customer who ordered the meal to come out of the apartments when he was approached by a 17-year-old suspect with a gun.

The suspect took the driver’s wallet and the food being delivered but did not get far before the victim shot him in the leg.

When officers arrived, they applied a tourniquet to stop the bleeding, and the teen was taken to the hospital.

He is expected to be okay.

As with all shootings, the district attorney will investigate to determine if the delivery driver will be charged.

After Shooting, Chicago Democrat Advocates Residents Get Guns and Carry Permits

“a liberal is just a conservative who hasn’t been shot at yet.”

LaShawn Ford has served as an Illinois State Representative since 2007. Like his fellow Chicago Democrat General Assembly members, he has been a fairly consistent vote against gun rights since, well, forever.

But he recently appeared on radio station WLS-AM encouraging residents to arm themselves and get their carry licenses.

What caused Rep. Ford’s sudden, very public change when it comes to guns? Could it be the “come to Jesus” moment this past weekend outside his home that left one man dead? Or was it the fact that his car was riddled with gunfire during the incident?

WLS-AM has the story of what happened outside Ford’s home:

After another violent weekend that saw eight people killed and at least 32 others wounded, one lawmaker is taking action by encouraging his constituents to arm themselves.

Bullets from a shooting that left a 22-year-old dead in the Austin Neighborhood on the West Side Sunday also found State Rep. La Shawn Ford’s (D-Chicago) car. …

“I think about it all the time,” Ford said of the shootings that plague his community. “That’s why I’m working with a concealed carry instructor and we’re going to go through the neighborhood and we’re going to encourage people to get their concealed carry license because it makes no sense for people not to have the protections that they need.”

Anderson County coroner identifies man fatally shot by Williamston homeowner

Investigators are still trying to piece together what happened in the moments before a construction worker was shot by a Williamston homeowner late Sunday night.

Late Monday afternoon, Anderson County Deputy Coroner Don McCown identified the man killed as Efren N. Ramirez, 39, of Honduras. McCown said Ramirez had been living in Upstate South Carolina for a while doing construction work. McCown said Ramirez lived across the street from the home where he was shot, and that he appeared to have been heavily intoxicated when he died. It’s not yet clear how, or if, that played a role in what happened.

Sgt. J.T. Foster of the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office said Monday morning that preliminary information indicates that Ramirez was shot as he attempted to break into a home on Boiter Road. Investigators have not disclosed the name of the homeowner who shot him. No charges had been filed in the case as of Monday.

Ramirez died of a gunshot wound to the chest, according to Foster and Deputy Coroner Don McCown. He was shot at the doorway of the home, Foster said.

Alleged home intruder in Utah found with gunshot wounds

LEHI — An alleged intruder was shot and injured Saturday night after trying to “forcibly enter” a home in Lehi, police said.

About 8:40 p.m., officers were dispatched to 391 N. 900 East on the report of a burglary in progress, according to a statement from Lehi police.

While officers were on the way to the house, dispatchers told them a 20-year-old man had been trespassing at the house earlier, had returned and was trying to break in, police said.

The officers got to the home and discovered the man with multiple gunshot wounds — at least two in his legs and one in his stomach, Lehi Police Sgt. Levi Lewis said. He was taken to Intermountain Medical Center for treatment.

As of late Sunday morning, he remained hospitalized with serious injuries but was expected to survive, Lewis said. The man is expected to be arrested after he is released from the hospital, according to Lewis.

There was no known relationship between the alleged intruder and residents in the home, the sergeant said.


Tuolumne County authorities say intruder was shot after entering sleeping couple’s tent

The man who was fatally shot early Thursday at a campground near Kennedy Meadows had entered the tent of a sleeping couple he did not know and was killed during the ensuing confrontation, according to the Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Department’s preliminary investigation.

The department issued the update Friday in a Facebook post. The shooting took place at Deadman Campground in a high-elevation part of the Stanislaus National Forest along Highway 108 and near the Kennedy Meadows Resort. The area is about 2 1/2 hours northeast of Modesto.

“Reports indicate that a man and his girlfriend were asleep in their tent when an unassociated 36-year-old Watsonville man entered their tent” about 2 a.m., according to the post. “The woman woke up to the Watsonville man on top of her. The woman yelled to wake up her boyfriend … During the ensuing confrontation, the Watsonville man was shot, causing his death.”

The department reported that investigators are working with the Tuolumne County District Attorney’s Office and no arrests have been made. The Sheriff’s Department said names are not being released now, pending more investigation and notification of family.

Why These Defensive Uses of Firearms Should Disarm Second Amendment Skeptics

At a time when many high-profile politicians are comfortable proposing laws that impose serious burdens on the right to keep and bear arms, including the mass confiscation of commonly owned firearms, it’s important to remember that those same firearms are regularly used by average Americans to defend their life, liberty, and property.

While some gun control advocates claim the Second Amendment is a dangerous historical relic, even going so far as to call for its repeal, they often overlook the fact that firearms are significantly more likely to be used for self-defense than in criminal activity.

In fact, according to a 2013 report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, almost all national studies of defensive gun uses have found that firearms are used in self-defense between 500,000 and 3 million times every year in the United States.

Additionally, an independent analysis of the CDC’s own internal data on defensive gun uses indicates that firearms are used defensively about 1 million times a year, dwarfing the number of deaths and injuries attributable to their criminal use.

Germany charges 3 in home invasion of US Army employee

If you slug a thug with a knife, it still counts.

BERLIN — German authorities have charged three men with an attempted home invasion of a U.S. Army employee’s residence that was foiled by the American.

Zweibruecken prosecutors said Thursday that the three men, whose names weren’t released, were part of a group of four who attempted to force their way into the Landstuhl home in February.

They say the 41-year-old American fought off three robbers and forced them back outside, but a fourth pushed past him, ran upstairs to where his wife and three children were and attacked his wife.

Prosecutors say the man, a civilian employee of the U.S. Army’s Regional Health Command Europe, heard her screams, grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed the burglar twice in self-defence while fighting with him. The wounded intruder fled and later died.

Intruder with machete shot, killed by homeowner

An intruder armed with a machete was shot Thursday morning when he broke into a north DeKalb County home, police said.

The man was taken to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead. While he has not been positively identified, investigators believe he lived next door to the home he’s accused of breaking into in the 3300 block of Northlake Trail in unincorporated Doraville.

He was shot by a homeowner after breaking several windows, DeKalb police Lt. Rod Bryant told AJC.com.“We don’t know what kind of contact, what kind of relationship they had,” he said. “We’re getting information that this guy just came uninvited and tried to break inside the residence, and we are still trying to conduct an investigation to find out why.”


Gas station clerk shoots at 2 crooks, kills 1 after robbery near Fort Lauderdale

NEAR FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (WSVN) – Deputies are investigating after a gas station clerk said he shot at two robbers — killing one — near Fort Lauderdale.

The robbery happened at a Valero gas station along the 2400 block of West Sunrise Boulevard, Wednesday afternoon.

Late Wednesday night, Broward Sheriff’s Office confirmed one of the robbers had been shot and killed. Investigators said his body was dropped off at a Hollywood fire station. He died on the way to the hospital, authorities said.

Deputies were joined by Fort Lauderdale Police in their search for the crooks. The other one still remains at large.

Surveillance video from outside the gas station showed two men — one with a white T-shirt and another with a black shirt — approaching the store.

Video from inside the gas station showed the man in the white shirt going behind the counter and pointing a gun at the gas station’s clerk. The man could then be seen in the video pistol whipping the clerk on the left side of his face.

The video showed a second robber’s hand reaching over the counter and into the station’s register.

The culprits are then seen in the video forcing the clerk to the ground before taking off. The clerk was later identified as Mike.

“Just two guys came inside the gas station and put a gun on me, and they took the money,” said Mike while holding an ice pack to his head.

After the gas station was robbed, the station’s clerk said he gave chase and shot at the two robbers.

“I went outside and shot at them twice,” Mike explained.


 

All Enemies Foreign And Domestic

 

That thinking played into the potentially apocryphal comment made by Japanese Admiral Yamamoto, who argued that invading the United States would be a disaster because “there would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.” I say it’s potentially apocryphal because no one has been able to confirm that the admiral actually said this, but it’s the kind of valid observation of America that Yamamoto was known to make.

In other words, much of our domestic tranquility – the fact that no nation wants to set foot on American soil and try to get rowdy – stems from the fact that we have an armed populace. And that matters these days. It matters because we do have people who are more than willing to get rowdy on American soil. We have enemies, both foreign and domestic.

Suspects knock on apartment door, resident starts firing shots

ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) — Police responded to a shooting in the early hours of Saturday morning in northwest Atlanta.

The incident happened around 2 a.m. at an apartment complex on the 500 Bishop Street.

The victim told officials, he heard a knock on his door and he then looked out his peep to see if anyone was there. Prior to opening his door, the victim grabbed his firearm for protection.

He then opened his door slightly and saw two to three men standing there with firearms, so the victim started firing.

According to officials, the suspects then fled the scene and no one appeared to be injured during the shooting.


Suspect fires gun at home, man inside shoots back

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — On Sunday morning around 10:30 A.M., a Corpus Christi man heard knocking on his door. When he answered, there was another man at the door.

Police said the suspect wanted to talk to someone in the home in the 3200 block of Virginia Street but that person was not available. The man then showed his gun as someone inside the home so he retreated inside.

Then, the suspect shot at a window which shattered the glass. The man inside of the home reportedly shot back but was injured by the loose glass. He fired at least one time, according to CCPD.

The victim was transported to a nearby hospital with minor injuries. The suspect, however, is still on the run.


Man jumped out a University Place window to make getaway. He got shot when he returned

UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. – A man jumped from the window of a University Place apartment to avoid getting arrested and was shot when he returned hours later, authorities said.

The string of incidents began just before noon Friday when a 65-year-old woman called her brother for help, said Pierce County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Ed Troyer.

The woman’s daughter, 35, and the daughter’s boyfriend allegedly were trafficking in stolen property from the older woman’s home in the 3300 block of 72nd Court West, Troyer said.

Police say man shot as he breaks into neighbor’s home in southwest Spokane

It wasn’t the first time the man had broken into the home, but it was the first time he’d been shot while trying.

Spokane police say the intruder barged into his neighbor’s home this weekend armed with “large kitchen style knives” in each hand – and was then shot in the chest by the homeowner.

The suspect had faced initial charges in an earlier break-in, according to court records, but they were dropped after a court-ordered competency evaluation.

When police asked Matthew Knapton, 40, why he allegedly tried to break in again on Sunday, he reportedly told them he was trying to get inside the home because his neighbors had an “illegal device inside that was manipulating the electronics in his home.”

Knapton was taken into custody Tuesday morning after undergoing surgery at a local hospital, where at one point he was listed in critical condition, court records say. Prosecutors on Wednesday filed first-degree burglary charges against Knapton, who remained in custody in lieu of an $80,000 bond set by Superior Court Commissioner John Stine.


One dead in Odessa home invasion.

Idiot reporter wonder if ‘Stand Your Ground’ will apply.
It’s ‘Castle Doctrine’ you dummy.

ODESSA — A man was shot dead late Wednesday by a family member whose home he was trying to break into, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies were called to the 10000 block of Grove Lane about 11 p.m. and arrived to find a man dead inside a home. Neither he nor the shooter has been identified by the Sheriff’s Office.

The shooter told deputies the other man, whose relation to him has not been released, broke a glass window on the back side of the home to get inside. A confrontation erupted, then the resident shot the intruder, deputies said. Three other adults — an elderly female family member and two of the shooter’s friends — were also inside.


Man shot at Pontiac Avenue home was burglar

A man who was shot while breaking into a Pontiac Avenue home during the early-morning hours of June 27 is facing multiple charges, according to Cranston Police Maj. Todd Patalano.

Brendan Anderson, 36, Cranston, is still being treated at Rhode Island Hospital, Patalano said Tuesday. He is charged with burglary, assault and disorderly conduct.

Patalano said officers responded to 1012 Pontiac Ave. at 3:10 a.m. In the home’s basement, a man in his 30s was found with a gunshot wound in the area of his upper chest and shoulder.

In the aftermath of the police response – which closed a portion of Pontiac Avenue for a time and drew widespread attention – Patalano said the two occupants of the home were cooperating with authorities. On Tuesday, he said the occupants had acted in self-defense and are not facing charges in the incident.

Patalano said the homeowners were awoken by a noise at approximately 3 a.m. on June 27 and found the power had gone out. When one of the occupants went into the basement to check the circuit breaker, he was confronted by a man – later identified as Anderson – wearing a mask and armed with pepper spray. The other occupant, meanwhile, had retrieved a firearm.

“When this individual confronted [the homeowners] and began spraying them with pepper spray, at some point the intruder was shot,” Patalano said.

“At this time, there are no charges against the homeowners and they appear to have acted appropriately and in self-defense, being in fear for their own safety,” the major said.


 

Guns and Self-Defense: 23 Inspirational True Crime Stories of Survival with Firearms.

Here’s a little-kept secret: liberals, independents, and conservatives all own firearms. Gun ownership is one of the few issues that crosses all sides of the aisle. In their book, Guns and Self-Defense: 23 Inspirational True Crime Stories of Survival with Firearms, Robert A. Waters and Sim Waters describe exciting true stories in which a cross-section of Americans used guns to fend off violent assailants.

These are stories the mainstream media rarely reports.

Have you ever heard of Harry and Janet Lodholm? This Lakewood, Washington couple survived a brutal home invasion by a gang that mistook their house for that of a drug dealer they planned to rob. Crashing through the front door, the gang pistol-whipped Harry and slashed Janet with a knife. When the assailants finally realized they had the wrong house, they took what they could find and fled, leaving the bound and tortured victims stunned, bloody, and Harry permanently disabled. In their haste to leave, however, the robbers forgot they’d left their backpack in the house—worse yet, the backpack contained all their cellphones. The group broke into the house once again, this time determined to silence the victims who could identify them and retrieve the evidence that would send them to prison. But the robbers didn’t’ realize that the couple had broken free and retreated to their bedroom where Janet was calling 9-1-1 and Harry had grabbed his handgun. When the gang kicked down the bedroom door, Harry and his 9mm firearm made quick work of the robbers.

The mainstream media never reported this story because it didn’t fit their anti-gun agenda.

Based on police reports, interviews with victims, court documents, media sources, and other public records, this true crime book recounts the courage and resourcefulness of armed citizens who refused to become easy prey.

By the way, for those who fancy identity politics, the would-be victims represent a microcosm of America: liberals, conservatives, independents, whites, blacks, other minorities, male, female, able-bodied, and disabled.

In Guns and Self-Defense, you’ll get the “inside scoop” on two cases in which concealed carry permit holders saved the lives of lawmen.

You’ll read about two cases that went viral—then, since they’re still online, you can view the events as they occurred in real time.

You’ll read about the nurse who stopped a ring of car-jackers, her actions putting an end to a bloody summer in Milwaukee.

And there’s more.

If you’ve never heard about these (and other such cases), that means the national media is not doing its job. Broadcast and print media have a duty to report both sides of the gun issue, mass shootings and self-defense shootings. If they don’t, they portray a skewed version of the reality of gun ownership and use.

The authors are dedicated to writing a series of similar books, in order to publicize the “other side of the story.”

In 1998, true crime author Robert A. Waters published a well-received book entitled, The Best Defense: True Stories of Americans Who Defended Themselves with a Firearm. Guns and Self-Defense is similar, with nearly two dozen brand-new stories of violent encounters stopped only because each would-be victim had access to a firearm.

This book is 45,000 words.

Homeowner shoots suspect in Augusta Township break-in

AUGUSTA TWP., MI – A homeowner shot a 24-year-old suspect in a home invasion incident last month, according to police.

Police and rescue crews responded to the shooting in the early morning hours of June 15 at a home on McKean Road near Judd Road, according to Michigan State Police.

Troopers discovered the homeowner, 63, had shot an intruder two times with a handgun shortly after the suspect forced his way into the home, police said.


 

Mass Shootings by the Numbers, What You’ve Been Told is a Lie

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Have you noticed that only mass shooting where an AR patterned firearm is used are the only ones covered by the fake news, like CNN? The purpose of bending the coverage of shootings of all types is to move public opinion. Gun control is a political tool to scare suburban white women to vote for Democrats.

Here are the actual numbers and statistics for mass shooting in the US from 1998 through 2018.

Here are the three big TRUTHS the left is lying about.

  • 78% of mass shooting do NOT use an “Assault Rifle”
  • As a Percentage of the population, whites, and Hispanics are the LEAST likely to do a mass shooting.
  • Gun Control laws have NO effect on mass shootings.

Only 15 of the 67 events involved an “AR patterned” firearm; they are used in less than 22% of mass shootings. Only 22% of all mass shooting used AR style rifles.

As a Percentage of the population, most shooters are of middle eastern descent.

Percentage of population shooters of middle eastern descent.
Percentage of population shooters of middle eastern descent.

As a percentage of the population, White and Hispanic are the least likely to commit a mass shooting.

The real issue is the ratio of mass shootings to population.

Ratio Of Mass Shootings To Population
Ratio Of Mass Shootings To Population

The actual percentage of the population in the US from the middle east is remarkably small. Their participation in mass shooting dwarfs all other groups.

Gun Laws Have No Effect On Mass Shootings

California and Florida both have the greatest number of mass shootings (6 each). The State, with the most restrictive gun laws and the State with the most open gun laws both suffered the same number of mass killings. Exclude the Pulse Night Club shooting, and CA has more casualties than Florida too.

So the left lies about mass shootings. Liberal politicians lie about mass shootings. Why do they lie? To scare suburban white women (who voted 51% for Trump) to be scared enough to vote against their interests and elect a Democrat.

I’d like to thank the Crime Prevention Center and Dr. John Lott for making the raw statistics available. If you have an opportunity, you can donate to them to help keep the facts and truth available to the common citizen. The left is entitled to its own opinion, not it’s own facts.

Video: Attempted burglary, shooting at Bouchards; owner says: “I don’t come to work to have a shootout”

Don’t let the lying demoncraps get away with telling people that an AR isn’t useful for self defense.

MILWAUKEE — A 20-year-old man facing charges in connection with an attempted burglary and shooting that occurred at Bouchards, a high-end clothing store on Martin Luther King Drive on July 3rd appeared in court on Monday, July 27th — and for the first time, we are seeing the surveillance video that shows the store’s owner firing shots at the suspects. We have also learned the store’s owner won’t be charged in connection with the shooting.

 


Teen robber shot by victim, accomplice charged with murder

A botched robbery this weekend left one teen dead and a second teen charged with murder – all while the robbery victim and police say the shooting was in self defense.

Around 5 a.m. Saturday, investigators say two 15-year-old boys tried to rob a woman at gunpoint in the 3600 block of Reading Road.

The victim drew her own firearm and shot at the teens, striking 15-year-old Jordan Lara. He was taken to  University of Cincinnati Medical Center where he died from his injuries.

The actual shooter, the victim of the robbery, is not facing any charges. However, the surviving teen is.

He appeared in court Friday on aggravated robbery and murder charges. He was calm and often looked back at his mother during his appearance before Magistrate Mary Schulcz.

His mother cried. She quietly said, “I know,” to her son as he shook his head “no” when the murder charge was being discussed.

Prosecutors said the teen also faced a probation violation for getting in trouble and skipping three days of school. He was on probation due to a prior charge of receiving stolen property, officials said.

Ford Employee Fired For Self-Defense Shooting Rehired, Gets Back Pay

CHICAGO (CBS) — He was called a “deranged gunman” and charged with attempted murder for a South Side shooting, but after three long years, he’s cleared his name and won his job back.

In June 2016, then 50-year-old Ford employee Billy Cowart was charged for shooting off his gun in the United Auto Workers 551 parking lot. He struck two fellow union members — both in the leg.

“They made it seem like I was this villain, I’m shooting up the parking lot willy nilly. It didn’t happen like that,” Cowart said.

He was fired from Ford, where he had worked for nearly two decades. He spent a year and a half on house arrest, depleted his savings, and says his reputation was destroyed.

And the legal process was slow, in part because his case was transferred from his original Cook County Judge Joseph Claps after Claps was caught on camera dropping a handgun on the floor in the courthouse last fall.

The second judge reviewed the surveillance video from the night of the shooting and said the victim, who was intoxicated and seen sucker punching Cowart in the face, was clearly the aggressor.

The judge ruled that Cowart was legally defending himself.

“Now, here we are today, 12 counts all dismissed,” said Cowart’s attorney, Irena Stephanovski.

Cowart had been exonerated but was still out of a job.

“Ford didn’t want to have anything to do with me,” he said.

So, he filed a grievance in January and finally won this week. An arbitrator ruled that Ford fired him without just cause and he should be reinstated with no loss of seniority and a year of back pay.

Cowart says he won’t soon forgive and forget about his ordeal. But he fought to clear his name for one reason:

“For my family, for my son. I’ve got a 19-year-old son I don’t want him to ever think, ‘well, my father did something wrong,’” Cowart said.

A Ford spokesperson said they had no comment about the case, saying that as a policy they do not make statements on individual circumstances of current or former employees.

Female homeowner shoots, kills intruder inside her home in San Bernardino County

LUCERNE VALLEY, Calif. (FOX 11) – A woman shot and killed an intruder inside her Lucerne Valley home overnight Tuesday, deputies said.

According to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, around 12:28 a.m., deputies from the Victor Valley Sheriff’s Station responded to a residence in the 35000 block of Harvest Moon Street in Lucerne Valley following the report of a shooting.

JoCo DA says Boost Mobile clerk shot robber in self-defense, no criminal charges for killing

Two weeks? Either the DA is busy with lots of criminal activity, or he’s a slouch.

Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe this afternoon announced that his office had completed a review of the June 10 shooting death inside the Boost Mobile store near 76th and Metcalf and determined the employee had acted in self defense.

Police identified the man killed in the incident as Deshawn Brim of Raytown. Brim was out of prison on parole for drug charges at the time of the shooting.

In a release to the media this afternoon, Howe said Brim “entered the store armed with a handgun and proceeded to rob the store at gunpoint. At some point, the store clerk, fearing for his life and the life of his co-worker, produced a handgun. The robber was killed in the ensuing gun battle as he attempted to jump over the counter presumably to get at the clerk.”

Brighton Rabbi Asks Congregation To Bring Guns To Synagogue

BOSTON MASS. (?!) Rabbi Dan Rodkin says thoughts and prayers will not save his congregation from an attack on their house of worship.

Amid a rise in hate crimes against Jewish people across the United States, Shaloh House — the Brighton synagogue the rabbi leads — has been improving safety measures with security cameras, reinforced glass windows, even panic buttons.

“We can’t think, ‘I’m just praying, and God will save me,’ ” Rodkin says. “No, we need to take care of situations ourselves.”
Now, the rabbi is asking his own congregation to bring guns to Shabbat.

And several of Rodkin’s synagogue members — most of them former soldiers and retired cops — are answering his plea, coming armed to daily and holiday services. Others are applying for gun licenses with letters of recommendation from their rabbi.

Rodkin says he will get a gun, too, and wants to organize training for the new gun owners.

Democrat-Controlled Gadsden County (FL) Schools To Arm Teachers

Gadsden County, Florida is a Democrat-run, Hillary Clinton-loving, minority majority community in Florida’s rural panhandle…and has decided to follow common sense and arm their teachers.

To put things in perspective, Gadsden County last voted for a Republican in 1972 for Richard Nixon. In 1984, they were the only county in the state to vote against Ronald Reagan and again in 1988 against George H.W. Bush.

You would think that with Gadsden County being such a Democrat hotbed that they’d follow the party line and oppose arming teachers in the county’s schools. Apparently the Gadsden County School board really does believe in their mission statement — putting children first.

Richard Corcoran, former Speaker of the House and current Florida Department of Education Commissioner gave a statement to WTXL News of Tallahassee.

“Florida’s students and parents have rightfully demanded increased security measures, and this is another example of education leaders responding to the call. There are cowards who prey on our schools, and with each new district who takes advantage of this opportunity to safeguard their students, the State of Florida is sending a message that we are united in protecting our state’s future generations,” said Commissioner of Education Richard Corcoran.
