Brandon Scott Hole Identified as Suspect in Mass Shooting at Indianapolis FedEx Facility

Authorities have identified 19-year-old Brandon Scott Hole as the suspected gunman who opened fire at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis on Thursday, killing eight people and wounding several others before taking his own life.

Two law enforcement officials briefed on the matter provided the identity to the Associated Press on Friday afternoon.


FedEx mass shooter was reportedly ‘known’ to authorities

The gunman in the FedEx shooting spree was previously known to federal and local authorities — and had been flagged up to law enforcement by a concerned family member before the deadly attack, according to a report Friday.

The suspect, who committed suicide after killing eight at the Indiana facility Thursday night, has not been publicly identified by police. But CNN reporter Ana Cabrera said he’s no stranger to law enforcement.

“Authorities were warned about FedEx suspect’s potential for violence in the past, sources say,” Cabrera tweeted. “The suspect in the Indianapolis mass shooting was known to federal and local authorities prior to the attack.”

Citing three law enforcement sources, Cabrera added that a relative reached out to authorities to warn them of the gunman’s “potential for violence.” It is not clear when the warning was issued.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Deputy Chief Craig McCartt said earlier in the day that investigators “have an idea” who the shooter is but declined to elaborate.

He said the killer died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound as police closed in.

Police shoot man firing indiscriminately at people outside San Antonio airport

Police shot and killed an individual who began firing indiscriminately at people outside San Antonio International Airport in Texas on Thursday, police said.

The person, described as being in his 40s, drove up to Terminal B at about 2:30 p.m. local time and was confronted by a police officer, who had been warned of the vehicle driving the wrong way into the terminal. When confronted by the officer, the man got out of the car and started shooting wildly at the officer, the terminal and behind him, according to San Antonio Police Chief William McManus.

He was shot by police and was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead, police said.

One bystander was injured by shrapnel and another was injured as people fled from the area, police said. Neither injury was considered serious. No officers were injured.

8 dead in shooting at FedEx facility in Indianapolis

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A gunman killed eight people and wounded several others before apparently taking his own life in a late-night attack at a FedEx facility near the Indianapolis airport, police said, in the latest in a spate of mass shootings in the United States after a relative lull during the coronavirus pandemic.

Five people were hospitalized after the Thursday night shooting, according to police. One of them had critical injuries, police spokesperson Genae Cook said. Another two people were treated and released at the scene. FedEx said people who worked for the company were among the dead.

A witness said that he was working inside the building when he heard several gunshots in rapid succession.

“I see a man come out with a rifle in his hand and he starts firing and he starts yelling stuff that I could not understand,” Levi Miller told WTHR-TV. “What I ended up doing was ducking down to make sure he did not see me because I thought he would see me and he would shoot me.”

Student Fires at Officers at Tennessee School, Is Killed

A student opened fire on officers responding to a report of a possible gunman at a Tennessee high school Monday, and police shot back and killed him, authorities said. The shooting wounded an officer and comes as the community reels from off-campus gun violence that has left three other students dead this year.

Police found the student in a bathroom at Austin-East Magnet High School in Knoxville, a city about 180 miles (290 kilometers) east of Nashville, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Director David B. Rausch said at a news conference. They ordered the student to come out, but he wouldn’t comply, and that’s when he reportedly opened fire, Rausch said. Police fired back.

The student died at the school, and the officer was taken into surgery after being shot at least once in the upper leg, authorities said. The officer was expected to recover, and no one else was hurt. It wasn’t yet clear why the student brought a gun to school or why he fired at officers.

One person dead, officer injured after shooting at a high school in Tennessee

One person has died and a police officer was injured after a shooting at a high school on Monday in Knoxville, Tennessee, police said in a news release.

Knoxville Police Department (KPD) said multiple law enforcement agencies responded to Austin-East Magnet High School for reports of a person “who was possibly armed in the school.”

When officers approached the person, shots were fired, police said.

A KPD officer was hit at least one time and taken to UT Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries, police said.

One person was pronounced dead at the scene, while another was detained for further investigation.

“There are no other known gunshot victims,” police said in a statement.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation will be leading the investigation of the incident, the release said.

Following the shooting, a reunification site was set up at the baseball field behind the school, police said in a tweet.

“We are gathering information about this tragic situation and will provide additional information as soon as possible,” Bob Thomas, Knox County Schools superintendent, said in a tweet. “The school building has been secured and students who were not involved in the incident have been released to their families.

Police defunded: Major cities feeling the loss of police funding as murders, other crimes soar

Cities in parts of the U.S. that slashed their police department funding last year, in part as a result of police-involved shootings, have seen an uptick in certain crimes over the past year, according to data analyzed by Fox News.

Cities such as Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York City, Portland, Ore., and Austin, Texas, have shifted funds from police departments to social services programs. Such cuts have led some departments to lay off officers, cancel recruiting classes or retreat from hiring goals.

As police departments were left to make do with shrunken budgets and less support, some big cities have seen sometimes drastic upticks in murders and other violent crimes, a Fox News crime analysis found.

Video of Alleged Suspect in Capitol Incident, Suspect IDed As Alleged Member of Nation of Islam

Now there’s reported video that appears to be of the alleged suspect, of EMS moving him on a stretcher to the ambulance after the shooting.

Capitol Police Give Briefing on Attack at Capitol: One Officer, Suspect Killed in Incident

As we reported earlier, a suspect rammed a car into a barrier in front of the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. just after 1:00 p.m. and hit two Capitol Police officers and hit the north barricade along Constitution Avenue on the Senate side of the building.

The suspect then allegedly got out of the car wielding something between a knife and a machete, after which the suspect lunged at the police officers, and was shot and killed by the Capitol Police.

One of the two officers was injured and the other has unfortunately died at the hospital, according to Capitol Police Chief Yogananda Pittman.

READ: The Gun Background Check Form Where Hunter Biden Claimed He Wasn’t Using Drugs

Hunter Biden might have lied on the federal forms he filled out to buy the gun at the center of a bizarre new story, forms The Federalist has now obtained.

Hunter Biden was the subject of a strange missing firearm case in 2018 after Hallie Biden, the wife of his late brother and subsequently Hunter’s girlfriend, tossed it into a trash can behind a grocery store near a high school, according to a strange new report from Politico. It appears Hunter, the son of President Joe Biden, might have lied on the federal forms he filled out to purchase the gun a few months prior, forms The Federalist has now obtained.

Hunter answered “no” to a question on the Firearms Transaction Record asking whether he was an “unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance.” See question 11.e on the form below:

Hunter Biden 4473 Form 2 Redacted by The Federalist on Scribd

Hunter’s history of drug use is well-known, and he’s scheduled to release a tell-all memoir about it in April. His lifestyle contributed to his divorce from his wife Kathleen in 2017. Hunter “created financial concerns for the family by spending extravagantly on his own interests (including drugs, alcohol, prostitutes, strip clubs, and gifts for women with whom he has sexual relations), while leaving the family with no funds to pay legitimate bills,” his ex-wife said in the divorce filing.

Senators Grassley, Johnson getting involved in Hunter Biden Gun-Gate

Two Republican senators are asking the directors of the FBI, the U.S. Secret Service and the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives for details of their alleged investigation into a handgun that belonged to Hunter Biden that was reported missing in 2018.

In their letters, Sens. Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson refer to a report from Politico this week about the gun incident.

According to Politico, on Oct. 23, 2018, Hunter Biden’s sister-in-law, Hallie Biden, called police in Delaware to report that she had thrown Biden’s gun in a trash can behind a grocery store.

Hallie, who was also dating Hunter, said that she went to retrieve the gun after growing worried someone might find it and use it in a crime, but that it was no longer in the trash can.

The FBI responded to the scene of the investigation, as did ATF. The U.S. Secret Service also became involved in the investigation and contacted the gun store that sold the firearm to Biden, according to Politico.

The store owner provided documents to the ATF, but “refused to supply the paperwork” to the Secret Service out of concerns that “the Secret Service officers wanted to hide Hunter’s ownership of the missing gun in case it were to be involved in a crime,” Politico reported.

Nobody was arrested in connection with the incident.

Boulder Shooting Investigators Examine Whether an Illegal Ammunition Magazine Was Used

Investigators are trying to determine whether the suspect in Monday’s Boulder supermarket shooting used an illegal 30-round magazine, law-enforcement officials said.

Colorado banned the sale and possession of magazines that hold more than 15 rounds in 2013, one year after the Aurora theater shooting that left 12 dead and dozens injured.

Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, the suspect in Monday’s shooting, legally purchased a Ruger AR-556 pistol—a smaller version of an AR-style rifle—that he used in the attack at a local gun store, Boulder Police Chief Maris Herold said at a news conference Friday.

Boulder County District Attorney Michael Dougherty declined to address questions about the ammunition magazine at the news conference, saying more information about the gun would be released in the coming weeks.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has been working to trace the weapon used in the attack, police said.

Mr. Alissa allegedly used the gun to open fire on shoppers, employees and police at a King Soopers store Monday before he was taken into custody, law-enforcement officials say.

John Eagleton, owner of Eagle’s Nest Armory, said Mr. Alissa bought the gun at this store and that he passed a state background check. Mr. Eagleton said the store is cooperating with investigators. An attorney for the store did not respond to a request for comment about whether it sold him a magazine.

Secret Service Reportedly Involved Itself In Hunter Biden Gun Case

It seems that almost every Democratic president has that one family member that everyone wishes would just go away. From Billy Carter to Roger Clinton, it just seems to be a bit of a thing.

For President Joe Biden, that family member is Hunter Biden.

Had it not been for the media’s refusal to cover some of Hunter’s misdeeds, Biden may well have never even come close to the White House.

Now, it seems one of the more troubling aspects of Hunter’s life may have seen the Secret Service try to cover for him.

On Oct. 23, 2018, President Joe Biden’s son Hunter and daughter in law Hallie were involved in a bizarre incident in which Hallie took Hunter’s gun and threw it in a trash can behind a grocery store, only to return later to find it gone.

Delaware police began investigating, concerned that the trash can was across from a high school and that the missing gun could be used in a crime, according to law enforcement officials and a copy of the police report obtained by POLITICO.

Now, we covered this one a while back. I’d actually advise you to go and read that one a bit, then come back.

Done? Awesome.

Arrest Hunter Biden

If President Joe Biden is serious about “commonsense gun safety measures,” he’d call for the arrest of his son, Hunter, immediately.

Hold up a second. Before we get too far into this column, can we short-hand this whole “commonsense gun safety measures” thing?

We all know that phrase is a little… cómo se dice… lengthy, isn’t it?

You see, the same laws and restrictions to your Second Amendment rights that Democrats have proposed for several decades are now re-branded as “commonsense gun safety measures.” Back in the day, we all called them what they were: gun control laws.

But, somewhere along the way, some genius political marketing firm earned their millions of Democrat dollars by focus-testing that and recognized it didn’t play well with an important voting bloc out there known as “Americans.” So instead of “gun control,” they moved us to not just “gun safety,” but they added the sexy modifier “commonsense” to their new brand. And they did away with “laws” because that sounds a little too authoritarian. Now they’re just “measures.”

It’s amazing… everything else the federal government legislates is referred to as a law except when it tries to infringe on your constitutional right to bear arms. Then they’re not laws… they’re just measures.

But, for the sake of expedience in this column, can we call it what it is? Gun control laws.

Golly gee whiz fellas, I wonder what changed in 2020?


Murder rate jumps back to 1990s levels, data show.

US murder rate per 100000 via FBI line graph

A new crime reporting system released by the FBI shows that the murder rate in virtually every city in the United States is at its highest levels in more than two decades.

In 2020, the country saw more homicides than in any year since 1998. Experts came to that conclusion after looking at reported quarterly data from roughly 12,000 agencies in various cities and states.

The spike, totaling at over 20,000 recorded homicides, was the largest one-year increase in U.S. history. Every city that reported data saw at least a 20%-25% jump in murders. Twenty-two percent of cities with a population of over 250,000 that reported data saw the most murders ever recorded since the federal government began keeping logs in 1960.

“We’ve never seen an increase like that. Previously the biggest one-year increase in murder was a 12.5% increase in the 1960s,” statistician and crime analyst Jeff Asher told the Washington Examiner. “We’re really talking about unprecedented increases in murder.”

Asher concluded, using the FBI data, that the murder rate for 2020 sat at roughly 6.22 per 100,000 people. Not since 1998 has the country seen a murder rate that high.

In 2019, the murder rate was an even 5 per 100,000 people, a slight dip from 5.1 in 2018.

Just so it’s not lost in the shuffle:
The full name of the shooter is.
Ahmad Al Aliwi Al Issa

BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) — The suspect in the mass shooting at a grocery store in Boulder on Monday has been identified as 21-year-old Ahmad Al-Issa from Arvada. Ten people, including one police officer, were killed at the King Soopers store at Table Mesa Drive and South Broadway.

Al-Issa was shot in the leg by a Boulder police officer and was taken into custody. He is in the hospital and officials said his condition is stable.

 

I say again: I am not ‘anti-cop’. I am, however, anti-stoopid cop.


UPDATE: Illicit Deadly No-Knock Houston Raid of Innocent Couple ~ VIDEO

U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg held a press conference on the 25th of January, 2021, to release details about new indictments from a grand jury in the ongoing investigation of the illicit no-knock raid which occurred on the 28th of January, 2019, in Houston, Texas, on Harding Street. A gunfight occurred when the plainclothes officers burst in and shot the couple’s dog.

See video below of press conference by Harris County DA Kim Ogg, 25 January 2021.

Dennis Tuttle and his wife, Rhogena Nicholas were killed in the raid.

The coverup of what happened to lead to the raid, and what happened in the raid fell apart partly because the lead instigator of the raid, officer Gerald Goines, was wounded in the neck and unable to talk.

The presentation by DA Ogg starts at about 05:09 into the video. Questions asked of DA Ogg are difficult to hear in the video.

The grand jury, on 25 January, indicted a 2nd officer for murder, and five more officers for organized criminal activity.

Anti-Asian violence can’t be blamed on Trump supporters

The horrific murder of eight people on Tuesday, victims mostly of Asian descent, has spurred a national conversation about rising violence against Asian Americans. The sole suspect is a troubled 21-year-old white man from Georgia.

This mass shooting may not be racially motivated: The killer seems to have been motivated by a sexual addiction and mental health problems. Still, as anti-Asian crimes have risen across the country, blue check marks on Twitter have placed the blame on former President Donald Trump and white supremacy. That the Left seems to need to blame every ailment of society at the feet of white people, conservatives, and Trump himself lacks any form of seriousness. While there are some violent perpetrators who are white, conservative, or Trump supporters, FBI statistics suggest that most anti-Asian violence has come from black perpetrators. Refusing to look at these statistics represents a refusal to take seriously the lives and security of Asian Americans.

According to the Justice Department, 27.5% of all violent crimes against Asian Americans in 2018 were committed by black people. That’s over 50,000 incidents in a single year. White criminals and Asian criminals each accounted for 24.1% of all attacks on Asians. Asian people, similar to their white counterparts, are underrepresented in violent crimes committed to the proportion of the population they make up. In 2019, Asians made up 6.2% of the population but just 1% of the perpetrators of violent crime. White people are 62% of the population but commit 50% of violent crimes.

This bears note in light of the Left’s narrative that white Trump supporters are propelled toward violence against Asian Americans because of xenophobia, racism, and Trump’s usage of “China virus” when speaking about the coronavirus. The narrative falls apart very quickly when observing the data.

Some left-wing outlets such as Vox have claimed that interracial violence between black and Asian people is a consequence of white supremacy. While being ridiculous at face value, it’s also unverifiable, which likely is the point. If you can’t disprove something based on data, then you can perpetuate the narrative. The same liberals who’ve said that white supremacy is to blame for anti-Asian crime are also some of the same people who have said Asians are white-adjacent and benefit from white privilege.

Nothing in any of the current proposed legislation – even the ‘Covid Hate Act, whatever that is supposed to cover – would have done anything to stop this. The demoncraps know that, but ………..


What Gun Control Proposal Would Have Prevented Georgia Shootings?

Never let a good crisis go to waste. That’s the Washington, D.C. mantra, it seems, especially among the left. They’ll latch onto anything and everything that happens as a way to advance an agenda, no matter how much reality interferes with their efforts.

Take the shooting in Atlanta. Let’s face it, it’s awful. Any time someone takes human life so indiscriminately, it’s just awful. There really aren’t enough words in the English language to describe just how terrible that is.

But almost as terrible is the fascination among some people to try and twist events. That’s what’s happening in the wake of Atlanta.

The U.S. House member whose district includes the first massage parlor targeted by a gunman Tuesday night said he was grateful the suspect was quickly apprehended and praying for those affected.

“My staff members and I are horrified by the violent shootings that took place at businesses in Woodstock and Atlanta this afternoon,” U.S. Rep. Barry Loudermilk, R-Cassville, wrote on Twitter late Tuesday. Our prayers are with the families of the victims this evening, and for healing for those injured.”

U.S. Rep. Nikema Williams represents the Atlanta neighborhood where two spas were attacked. She said the shooter must be held accountable but the wider issue of violence against Asian American people and Pacific Islanders, which has increased during the coronavirus pandemic, must also be addressed.

She noted that the House Judiciary Committee already had a hearing scheduled for Thursday to discuss this issue. And Williams supports a bill two Asian American lawmakers filed last week that would direct the Department of Justice to assign a point person to review COVID-19-related hate crimes. The COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act would also provide additional support for state and local law enforcement agencies in responding to hate crimes.

“Those are immediate steps that we can take in Congress beyond thoughts and prayers,” she said.

President Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer were also among those who released statements condemning the violence that appeared to have roots in misogyny. U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar said the news of the shootings gripped her attention and she hoped that her colleagues and people at home are watching, too.

“We still know that this risk of gun violence is out there in a big way,” the Minnesota Democrat said. “And that’s what you saw, sadly, in Atlanta.”

Klobuchar said she was happy Georgia voters recently elected Democratic U.S. Sens. Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, who she said are poised to support gun control measures.

About those gun control measures…  I’d be interested to know which of the plethora of gun control bills currently in Congress would have stopped this atrocity. He used a handgun, so no assault weapon ban. The killer purchased the gun legally, which means that even if he didn’t buy it at a gun store, he could have, so universal background checks would have done jack squat. There’s been no mention of “red flags” before his attack, so no red flag law would have stopped it.

So what which bill would have?

None. None would have. There’s no evidence that even a waiting period would have done a damn thing except delay him.

But for Democrats, it’s never really about addressing the incident, it’s about advancing an agenda and using the bodies of slain individuals as the soapbox from which they pontificate from. They don’t give a damn about the lives lost. They care about taking your guns. That’s it.

And they’re not going to let a good crisis go to waste.

Kevin McCarthy proven right after Dems, media accuse him of lying about suspected terrorists at border

Democrats and liberal media outlets questioned claims from House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., about people on the “terrorist watch list” being detained while attempting to cross the southern border, but new information shows that McCarthy was right.

McCarthy delivered the warning about the “terrorist watch list” on Monday during an interview outside El Paso, Texas, shortly after speaking with border agents, who warned about foreign nationals on the terrorist watch list entering the United States.

McCarthy’s remarks were met with skepticisim from Democrats.
(Nothing unusual from demoncraps)
……..
Three migrants from Yemen and one migrant from Serbia have been picked up by U.S. Border Patrol since last October while attempting to cross the southern border, Fox News reported Tuesday.

Four foreign nationals, whose names match those on the terror watch list, have been stopped trying to enter the U.S. via the southern border since October, a congressional aide familiar with Customs and Border Protection (CBP) information told Fox News.
