Bay Area homicide rate rises in 2012
San Francisco Chronicle, by Demian Bulwa *

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 1/14/2013 1:59:33 PM

It´s no surprise to LaTanya Lozano that homicides are up in the Bay Area´s biggest cities. She moved to Hayward in late 2011 to try to protect her four sons, only to see two of them shot dead last year back where she used to live, Oakland. First her 15-year-old, Shonte Daniels Jr., was shot by a 14-year-old friend in a park, apparently after teasing him. Six months later, in October, 21-year-old Rashad Meredith was caught in the middle of a gunfight between rival groups outside his aunt´s apartment. "This tore down my whole life

Stats are buried in the article, but show results of some of the "toughest" gun control laws in the nation, plus total refusal to enforce immigration laws and address the gang crime problem.

The crime and death rate is far from random. This all is in areas where there are gangs and long time issues.

FTA: Her son had been in and out of juvenile lockups - often for stealing cars, she said - and was wanted by police when he was killed by his friend

She forgot to add that Shonte was ´turning his life around - just recently´.

Stealing cars is not a death penalty offense here in America.

The crass cruelty of some Ldotters is sad, indeed.

But stealing cars, especially from a young age, indicates SOMEthing, doncha think????

The scary thing is that these parents move out of the area their kids have made crime-ridden and bring their special "magic" to a new area. You should be feeling sorry for the honest, hard-working folks in Hayward!

Not officially, but if you´re running with a crowd that doesn´t follow the rules of civil society, your odds of winding up dead are significant.

Just maybe the problem might be related to the fact that THERE IS NO FATHER! Two of the 4 sons have different last names than the mother. Wanna bet the other 2 have at least one more last name? the problem is not guns. The problem is women who breed like feral cats and sperm donors who are never fathers to the offsring. I´d also bet that Latanya is on public assistance and lives in subsidized housing.

JAN... Wise up! Nobody, here, said that anyone deserved to be executed. The point it that, more often than not, bad things happen to those who choose to participate in criminal activities. Neither of LaTanya´s sons were hit by stray bounds while studying at the library.

The Chronicle and other liberal media wants this to be a sad narrative to support the call for ending the 2nd amendment. So, they present everyone as an innocent victim. Leave out the facts, and tell the story any way they want, regardless of the facts.

A failure to enforce already tough firearms laws.
A failure of the police to enforce the Stop and Frisk tactics used so successfully by NYPD.
A failure to follow federal immigration law, allowing the formation of gangs of illegals in this sanctuary city
A failure of LaTanya to have children out of wedlock, or without a father
A failure of San Francisco´s education system.
Those are (among) the causes for this tragedy. More gun laws will do nothing to prevent similiar occurrences.

She tried to do something by moving out. But it was too late and they went back to the spot where she tried to avoid. Perhaps the 21 year old should hav ebeen on his own.

Trenton — Deeply in debt and struggling to stay open, Saint Michael’s Medical Center of Newark put itself up for sale two years ago and accepted a $65 million offer from Prime Healthcare Services of California. Weeks later, however, Prime took a closer look at Saint Michael’s books and concluded they revealed “burdensome and inflexible” labor contracts, HMO rates “significantly below market price,” and two doctors earning more than $500,000 annually. (Snip) The proceeds from the sale won’t come close to conquering the $233 million mountain of state-backed loans Saint Michael took on when its parent company, Catholic Health East,

The Internal Revenue Service is demanding that Ron Paul´s Campaign for Liberty organization hand over its list of contributors, and has fined the non-profit organization $12,900 for failing to give names on its annual IRS filing. "There is no legitimate reason for the IRS to know who donates to Campaign for Liberty," the organization´s Communications Director Megan Stiles told the Washington Examiner in an e-mail April 15. "We believe the First Amendment is on our side as evidenced by cases such as NAACP v. Alabama and International Union UAW v. National Right to Work. Many 501(c)(4) organizations protect

State schools isolate non-Muslims

Schools in Birmingham are illegally segregating pupils, discriminating against non-Muslim students and restricting the GCSE syllabus to “comply with conservative Islamic teaching”, an official report leaked to The Telegraph discloses. Department for Education inspectors said that girls in a school at the centre of the so-called “Trojan Horse” plot were forced to sit at the back of the class, some Christian pupils were left to “teach themselves” and an extremist preacher was invited to speak to children. The report, into three schools in the city, follows weeks of controversy over the alleged plot to “Islamise” secular schools in Birmingham

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s
