Feds Give Mass. Police Granade Launchers!

This is insane!!
I don’t trust these assclowns with Tazers & you’re gonna give them grenade launchers?

(WWLP) - Like other law enforcers, West Springfield officers carry the usual handguns, handcuffs, pepper spray and ammunition.

Unlike most police departments, this particular police force is also equipped with 2 grenade launchers, 4 M-14 semi-automatic rifles and one M-21 sniper rifle.

According to the Boston Globe, West Springfield is one of 82 Massachusetts police departments that have obtained military surplus weapons over the last 15 years as part of a federal program.

Vegas paper gets subpoena to ID online commenters
The Associated Press
Tuesday, June 16, 2009 6:34 PM

LAS VEGAS -- A Nevada newspaper says it has been served a federal grand
jury subpoena seeking information about readers who posted comments on the
paper's Web site.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Tuesday that its editor, Thomas
Mitchell, plans to fight the request, which the newspaper received after
reporting on a federal tax fraud case against business owner Robert Kahre.
The subpoena seeks the identities and personal information about people who
posted comments on the story. The newspaper said prosecutors told the
judge in the case that some comments hinted at acts of violence and the
subpoena was issued out of concern for jurors' safety.

Mitchell said anonymous speech is "a fundamental and historic part of this
country." The newspaper would consider cooperating if specific crimes or
real threats were presented, he said.

The newspaper said the subpoena bears the name of U.S. Assistant District
Attorney J. Gregory Damm, a lawyer on the Justice Department team that is
prosecuting Kahre and others on charges including income tax evasion, fraud
and criminal conspiracy.

Grand jury proceedings are secret, and the subpoena is not a public record.

A spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney for Nevada declined to comment.

The newspaper said it received the subpoena June 2, a week after its story
describing the government's case against Kahre, a Las Vegas construction
company executive accused of paying contractors with gold and silver U.S.
coins based on the precious metal value of the coins but using the much lower
face value of the coins for tax purposes. Kahre and the other defendants
have pleaded not guilty.

The story drew nearly 175 online comments by Monday night, most in support
of Kahre and critical of the government and jurors and attorneys in the

One commentator said: "The sad thing is there are 12 dummies on the jury
who will convict him. They should be hung along with the feds."

Another called Damm a "socialist, fascist Mormon" and a "Nazi moron."

The comments are written under pseudonyms. Along with the real names of
people who posted comments, the subpoena asks the newspaper for the writers'
gender, birth date, physical address, telephone number, Internet service
provider, IP address and credit card numbers.

After a 2003 raid on Kahre's business, Kahre and several of his workers
sued Damm, two Internal Revenue Service agents and others who were involved.
That civil matter is pending.

In 2007, Kahre sued Damm and agents of the FBI and IRS, alleging criminal
behavior. U.S. District Court Judge David Ezra dismissed the complaint in
December, and Kahre appealed to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Two years ago, Damm prosecuted a similar tax case against nine defendants,
including Kahre. The trial ended with no convictions and four acquittals.
Five defendants were partially acquitted, and two of them were dropped from
the indictment that generated the current case.

Teens impersonating cops arrested after harassing homeless man

The Wichita Eagle

WICHITA - Two teenage boys have been arrested for posing as law enforcement officers and accosting two men -- one of them homeless -- near the Arkansas River early this morning.

The two and a third teen approached a 56-year-old homeless man and a 20-year-old Wichita man in the 100 block of North Waco at about 1:30 a.m. today, claiming to be police. Two of the teens were dressed in dark pants and black T-shirts with the word "Sheriff" printed on them, the victims told police.

One of the teens, who is 17, showed the victims a badge while his 16-year-old accomplice began dumping their belongings onto the ground. The third teen stood back, resting his hand on his waistband as if he was armed.

The three teens then took off, but the duo in "Sheriff" T-shirts were arrested a short distance away. They had a police-issue expandable baton and two-way radios with them, and admitted to police they had already disposed of badges and handcuffs that they had brought with them.

They told officers they bought the equipment at a surplus store.

Police are still looking for the third teen.

Obama Administration Ready to Give Job Security to Illegal Aliens,

Guts Rules Designed to Prevent Identity Theft by Illegal Aliens

Earlier today, FAIR learned that in the coming days, maybe as soon as tomorrow, the Obama Administration will announce two regulations that will dramatically undermine immigration enforcement.

The first regulation would gut a Bush Administration rule that required federal contractors -- paid with your tax dollars -- to use the E-Verify program to ensure that their employees are legally authorized to work in the U.S. FAIR expects the Obama Administration to gut this rule so that illegal aliens who are currently working for federal contractors will be able to continue in those jobs. This would give job security to illegal aliens who work for federal contractors instead of freeing that job up so that an American worker could be hired. Last week, the Bureau of Labor Statistics announced that 14.5 million Americans are out of work.

The second regulation would gut another Bush Administration rule to provide "no-match" notices to employers who have reported paying wages to people whose name and Social Security number don't match. As the Department of Homeland Security said in October: "One private study concluded that 'most workers with unmatched SSNs are undocumented immigrants.'" The Bush Administration proposed a rule to instruct employers how to deal with the "no-match" letters to ensure that employers don't continue to employ illegal aliens. By gutting this rule, not only would illegal aliens be allowed to continue in their jobs but the Obama Administration would also be turning a blind eye to those illegal aliens who are committing felony identity theft by using the Social Security number of an American citizen or legal immigrant!

Holocaust Museum shooter James von Brunn's ex-wife says his racism 'ate him alive'

This stinks: Intolerance & Hatred

BY Rich Schapiro In New York and James Gordon Meek In Annapolis, Md.

James von Brunn's ex-wife says she divorced him over his racist anger.

2 shot at Holocaust Museum in D.C.
He's a twisted kook with a toxic hatred for Jews and blacks who vowed to go out "with his boots on."

White supremacist James von Brunn, 88, apparently tried to make good on his promise Wednesday - storming the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and murdering a security guard.

The firefight, which left von Brunn in critical condition, capped a life spent spewing hatred.

"I'm in a state of shock, but I'mnot surprised he did it," von Brunn's ex-wife told the Daily News. "He used to make the statement that he was going out with his boots on. I took it to mean that he was going to go out and try to take some people with him."

A Holocaust denier with ties to extremists, von Brunn caught the attention of anti-racism groups and spent six years behind bars for a harebrained scheme to kidnap federal officials.

He filled his Web site with vile tirades and self-published a book - "Kill the Best Gentiles!" - which he said "exposes the Jews and explains what you must do to protect your White family."

More recently, the former New Yorker questioned the legitimacy of President Obama's birth certificate in online screeds.

It was unclear if something specific triggered his museum rampage - but the attack followed Obama's denunciation of Holocaust deniers.

Two months ago, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano warned of an expected upsurge in extremist violence in the wake of Obama's election.

Von Brunn's rage had festered for decades, though.

When his ex-wife met him in the mid-1960s, he was a wine swiller consumed by hatred.

"[It] ate him alive like a cancer," said the 69-year-old woman, who did not want her name used. "It's all he would talk about. When I questioned him, he would get angry and abusive.

"He would talk about what the world would become in 20 or 30 years, that most of the country would be governed by black governors and that the Jewish people owned the media."

Born in St. Louis, von Brunn graduated from Washington University in 1943 with a degree in journalism.

That same year, he became a midshipman with the Navy Reserves after enlisting for "patriotic reasons," documents show.

Von Brunn claims to have been a decorated PT boat captain during World War II.

After moving to New York City in 1947, von Brunn found a job at a "big-league advertising [firm] on Madison Avenue" and attended evening art classes, he wrote in an online biography.

By the time he met his ex-wife in the mid 1960s, he was a talented artist who spent hours drawing portraits and landscapes.

The ex-wife said the hulking von Brunn - he is 6-feet-5 - had the aura of John Wayne.

"He looked like him, talked like him, acted like him," she said.

The couple had a son named Erik, who is 32 and a student at the University of Maryland. Von Brunn's child from an earlier marriage committed suicide.

"I love my father. Everything you need to know about him is on his Web site," Erik von Brunn told The News Wednesday night.

Fed up with his tirades, the second wife divorced him in 1980.

On Dec. 7, 1981, von Brunn barged into the Federal Reserve in Washington with a revolver, a sawed-off shotgun and a knife.

He wanted to take hostage Carter administration adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski and Paul Volcker, chairman of the Fed's board of governors, "to focus attention on high interest rates."

He was captured by a guard and sentenced to 11 years in prison in 1983. "[I was] convicted by a Negro jury, Jew/Negro attorneys, and sentenced to prison for 11 years by a Jew judge," he wrote.

Von Brunn was released in 1989, but "the subject resides in my memory like old road kill," he wrote on his Web site, "What could have been a slam-bang victory turned into ignoble failure. Recalling all of this presents an onerous task. I am getting near the end of the diving board."

After leaving prison, von Brunn became a prolific writer in the white supremacist fringe and a member of the Mensa, a group for people with high IQs. He worked at a bookstore run by a Holocaust-denying group called the Institute of Historical Review and established ties with several prominent neo-Nazis.

Von Brunn painted a portrait of the late John Crommelin, a close associate of neo-Nazi William Pierce, whose book "The Turner Diaries" inspired the Oklahoma City bombing.

Public records briefly listed von Brunn at an address in Hayden, Idaho, where the Aryan Nations once had a compound.

The Southern Poverty Law Center said it monitored him closely but that in the twilight of his life, von Brunn appeared to be more talk than action.
