Potential School Shooters and What Happens When Law Enforcement Does Their Job

Broward County Sheriff, take note.

These kinds of stories never get anywhere near as much media attention as they should. Every time a local police or Sheriff’s department catches a would-be school shooter before it’s too late, we should be sending a message to every other potential shooter across the nation that this is exactly what happens when you play with fire in a nation of laws.

Instead, the media wants to blast the names, faces, and personal manifestos of every successful shooter, opening up wounds for grieving families and swarming devastating communities with news cameras for weeks (or in the case of Portland, trolling for media-backed anti-gun teen activists).

This week in Lima, Ohio, police received tips from four separate students that a former student had warned them not to go to school because he was planning on shooting it up. They arrested the culprit mere hours later and confiscated his weapon, and he is now in police custody.

Four Elida High School students are being heralded as heroes today for alerting the Allen County Sheriff’s Office that a former student told them to avoid going to school on Sept. 1 because he was going to “shoot it up.”

Their actions lead to the arrest of Tristan Ascura, 19, of Lima who was taken into custody at 1:53 a.m. Thursday, just over three hours after the threat was reported at 10:40 p.m. Wednesday.

The Allen County Sheriff’s Office Detective Bureau discovered an AR-15 rifle and 500 rounds of 0.556 caliber ammunition in Ascura’s possession. Detective Ryan Ream said they also found a single clip loaded with ammunition, though it’s possible he had other clips not readily visible.

Ascura is being held at the Allen County Jail on charges of inducing panic, a second-degree felony.

Well, there you go. If convicted, Ascura will very quickly find himself on the prohibited possessor list.

Which is exactly what should have happened to the Parkland shooter. 

But we all know what happened there: law enforcement absolutely failed to do their job, and seventeen innocent lives paid the price for that very fatal act of gross negligence.

Putin Puffs Out His Chest: Crossing ‘Red Lines’ Will Prompt ‘Asymmetrical’ Response

Putin has been extremely antsy as of late.

Russia

It appears that US President Joe Biden is really getting under the skin of Russian President Dictator Vladimir Putin. These leaders of the world two preeminent superpowers have been trading barbs for weeks now, and on a range of subjects.  The latest focus of their fury has to do with the Kremlin’s continued aggression against Ukraine, where Russian military forces are lining just over the border, with “invasion stripes” painted on their vehicles to prevent friendly fire. This is a tacit admission that there will be fire, and Biden isn’t going to stand for it. The US first sent warships in the direction of the Black Sea in an attempt to deter Putin from poking the bear.  The Russian government responded by blocking the entrance to the area and warning that America’s maneuvers were “adversarial”. Biden responded by sanctioning Russia over a major hacking attack that took place months ago. Now, just ahead of what is believed to be an inevitable Russian invasion of Ukraine, Putin is once again puffing out his chest. Russian President Vladimir Putin, in his annual State of the Nation speech, warned on Wednesday against provoking his country, promising a swift retaliation against anyone who crossed “red lines.“ Moscow will respond “harshly,” “quickly” and “asymmetrically” to foreign provocations, Putin told an audience of Russia’s top officials and lawmakers, adding that he “hoped” no foreign actor would cross Russia’s “red lines,” according to a Reuters translation. Russia is also facing international condemnation for their treatment of journalist Alexei Navalny, who is believed to be at death’s door at a Russian prison hospital.  Joe Biden has said that Russia would “pay a price” if Navalny were to perish in custody of the government.

DOJ Opens Investigation into Minneapolis Police Department

The investigation will feature the department’s civil rights division.

On Tuesday, Derek Chauvin was found guilty on all charges in the death of George Floyd. Chauvin was seen on video kneeling on the neck of Floyd for nearly 9 minutes as the restrained man slowly suffocated, in a moment that has haunted our nation for a year. Now that Chauvin is off to prison, and a likely, lengthy appeals process, the Department of Justice is now hoping to find out exactly what went wrong in Minneapolis, and whether or not there is some systemic issue with the police department itself. Attorney General Merrick Garland announced Wednesday that the Justice Department will be conducting an investigation of law enforcement in Minneapolis following the death of George Floyd. The announcement comes one day after a Hennepin County jury found former police officer Derek Chauvin guilty of second degree murder for killing Floyd. “Yesterday’s verdict in the state criminal trial does not address potentially systemic policing issues in Minneapolis,” Garland said during a press conference. Garland said the probe will be a “fully comprehensive review” that will look into whether the Minneapolis Police Department has a “pattern or practice of unconstitutional or unlawful policing.” He specificed that this includes “using excessive force, including during protests,” as well as “discriminatory conduct and whether its treatment of those with behavioral health disabilities is unlawful.” The DOJ will utilize their civil rights division in the investigation, and the Attorney General said that the move could protect “good cops” from their not-so-pristine peers in the precinct. “I strongly believe that good officers do not want to work in systems that allow bad practices,” Garland said. “Good officers welcome accountability because accountability is an essential part of building trust with the community and public safety requires public trust.” Chauvin was moved to prison on Wednesday, and promptly…
