Assailant shoots into
SF home with AK-47

San Francisco Chronicle, by Will Kane

Posted By:Ribicon, 2/25/2013 3:14:43 PM

San Francisco — A Sacramento man was arrested early Monday after he shot up a man´s Western Addition home with an automatic rifle, San Francisco police said. Kareem Benton, 42, got into an argument Sunday night with another man on the 1000 block of McAllister Street and followed the man to his home nearby, said Officer Albie Esparza, a police spokesman. Benton then pulled out a fully automatic AK-47 and "sprayed" the man´s home with bullets just after 7:30 p.m., Esparza said. The victim, who was in his home, was shot in the leg and is expected to survive.

Comments:
Read the officer´s refreshing comment in the last line of the article. Think he´ll face a reprimand?

"Criminals don´t adhere to any laws," Esparza said. "That´s why they are criminals." That really says it all.

Okay- we all know automatic weapons- fully auto are machine guns! Are illegal. And no large capacity magazines are allowed in Californian- much less San Francisco! And!- Assault weapons all have to be licensed in California- So, we can all be assured this is just a fake story. Could not be real! Californian has made this kind of thing illegal for many, many years!

The article doesn`t state how anyone knows it was an AK-47. If it is indeed that weapon, the article should state whom in the police dept. confirmed it was that weapon.

"If you´re going to San Francisco
Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair
If you´re going to San Francisco
You´re gonna meet some gentle people there

For those who come to San Francisco
Summertime will be a love-in there
In the streets of San Francisco
Gentle people with flowers in their hair
All across the nation such a strange vibration
People in motion
There´s a whole generation with a new explanation
People in motion people in motion

For those who come to San Francisco
Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair
If you come to San Francisco
Summertime will be a love-in there"

Of course the government wants the home-owner to have a low-capacity magazine in any gun he owns, so he may be disarmed when he stops to reload. In this case, the one who would be disarming him was intent on murder.

So whose side is the government on?

To paraphrase that prosecutor who got hammered by Sotomayor, you´ve got an AK-47 and a guy named Kareem...wouldn´t you suspect trouble is afoot?

Re #7, I prefer the Frank Zappa vision of Summer-of-love ´Frisco:

First I´ll buy some beads
And then perhaps a leather band
To go around my head
Some feathers and bells
And a book of Indian lore
I will ask the Chamber Of Commerce
How to get to Haight Street
And smoke an awful lot of dope
I will wander around barefoot
I will have a psychedelic gleam in my eye at all times
I will love everyone
I will love the police as they kick the s*** out of me on the street
I will sleep . . .
I will, I will go to a house
That´s, that´s what I will do
I will go to a house
Where there´s a rock & roll band
´Cause the groups all live together
And I will join a rock & roll band
I will be their road manager
And I will stay there with them
And I will get the crabs
But I won´t care

In addition to being illegal to own without paying ungodly taxes, full auto is nearly useless. It guarantees you will miss your target with most if not all of your bullets and possibly hit unintended targets. Spray and pray is the tactic of fools.
It is far better to use semi auto and actually aim. Thats what those little holes on top of the gun are for. They work.

Wow - maybe they should ban those guns! Oh, wait - - - they have been banned for almost 80 years.

Another example of the efficacy of gun control laws. IF (a big if, I am skeptical)
this was a machinegun version, it has been very tightly controlled since 1934.

Even if it is a garden variety semiauto look alike, the gun and magazines are illegal in California.

Those gun control laws, sure do work. (sarcasm off)

Meet Mr Poo: The lumpy, brown anthropomorphised faeces that is the face of Unicef´s latest public health campaign in India. Accompanied by an insanely catchy techno-Bollywood-style anthem, Mr Poo features in a very silly and surreal new video aimed at raising awareness of the health dangers associated with public defecation in India. Though the video is light-hearted; the issue is a serious one. Globally, India has the largest number of people, more than 620 million, still defecating in the open. Only about half the population of the country use toilets. According to the Poo2Loo campaign, which is supported

Ed Balls, the shadow chancellor, is being investigated by police after he crashed into a parked car and then drove off without informing the owner. The Labour MP for Morley and Outwood has admitted that he found himself in a “tight spot” and realised that he knocked the Peugeot 306 whilst making a seven point turn in his Ford Mondeo estate, but says he left the scene thinking he had not caused any damage.

Trenton — The law firm hired by Gov. Chris Christie´s office that cleared him and current staff aides of any wrongdoing in the George Washington Bridge scandal donated $10,000 to a national political group the governor currently heads, according to a published report. The Record reported late Tuesday night that Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher gave $10,000 to the Republican Governors Association — nine days before it released a report that cleared the governor in last year´s controversial lane closings at the bridge. Although critics called the report a "whitewash," Christie said the firm´s lawyers have reputations to uphold and wouldn´t

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history.

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

White babies just 15 months old show racial

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
