Police investigate incident
at Walorski´s office

South Bend Tribune, by MADELINE BUCKLEY

Original Article

MISHAWAKA — Police are investigating an incident at the local office of U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski in which an employee working the front desk said a man came in and showed a picture of a gun with a message underneath. The employee told police a man entered the office at 202 Lincoln Way E. on Tuesday and showed him a piece of paper that depicted a semi-automatic handgun, according to a Mishawaka police report.

Is it a threat or a Joke?

frankly, I find this hilarious. Beneath the picture of a gun were the words: Ruger is coming out with a new handgun named the Congressman - it doesn´t work and you can´t fire it.

The ´´perp´´ was obviously making a point about his representative. I take this as a political statement rather than a threat. But all things considered, I´m not surprised that there was a perceived threat from a picture of a handgun...

I´ve seen this joke before in an email someone sent me. I actually think it´s quite funny and clever, not a "threat".

Let´s play "Guess the Party". Walorski is a Republican but letting readers know that might hurt the agenda.

I suppose sending a harshly worded letter telling them to get off their posterior and do something is now considered a threat as well.

The article goes on to say:

Underneath the gun, the paper said, “Ruger is coming out with a new pistol in honor of the Senate and House of Representatives. I (sic) will be named the Congressman. It doesn’t work, and you can’t fire it,” the police report said. (Snip)
The man reportedly told the employee that they should all be ashamed.

They are equating it with an actual threat of bodily harm that some nutcase did a while back. Sounds like much ado about nothing. More like a prank than a threat. But even pictures of guns scare Liberals.

Secret military device lets Oakland
deputies track cellphones

Pontiac— Oakland County commissioners asked no questions last March before unanimously approving a cellphone tracking device so powerful it was used by the military to fight terrorists. Now, though, some privacy advocates question why one of the safest counties in Michigan needs the super-secretive Hailstorm device that is believed to be able to collect large amounts of cellphone data, including the locations of users, by masquerading as a cell tower. “I don’t like not knowing what it’s capable of,” said county Commissioner Jim Runestad, R-White Lake Township, who has met in recent weeks with sheriff’s officials about his concerns.

Really? A ´No Colors Allowed´ Sign

Here´s a story that goes under the category of the absurd. Beer Belly´s Bar on Van Born Road in Taylor has a sign posted outside that says "NO COLORS ALLOWED." Most people know what that means: No gang colors, and in this case, motor cycle gangs. But apparently somebody didn´t get it and and circulated a Facebook video suggesting it meant no "colored" or black customers, a throwback to the days of the South when some restaurants and businesses posted the sign "No Colored Allowed." Fox 2 reports that the video has prompted people to call the bar and threaten the help.

Police Chief James Craig: More guns
could equal less crime in Detroit

DETROIT, MI -- The Detroit Police Department has taken action in recent years through gun-buyback events to remove guns, legal or not, from the streets of Detroit. But first-year Police Chief James Craig takes a slightly different approach. He says in the hands of legal, law-abiding citizens, firearms "could be a deterrence to violent crime." That stance was challenged by Detroit resident Sandra Hines at the Detroit Police Commission meeting Thursday. "It could lead to vigilantism," said Hines, a member of the Detroit Coalition Against Police Brutality. "I just think that we already have the open-gun-carry law here and we have the stand-your-ground law, we don't need to have ... anybody encouraging citizens, and then, what is the definition of a law-abiding citizen, what does a law-abiding citizen look like ..."




Judge appoints $600/hour
attorney to monitor excessive
fees in Detroit bankruptcy

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Steven Rhodes today appointed a fee examiner to monitor legal fees in Detroit’s Chapter 9 bankruptcy. Rhodes named attorney Robert M. Fishman of the Chicago-based firm Shaw Fishman Glantz and Towbin to ensure the city’s legal fees and consulting bills don’t become exorbitant. Fishman will also be charged with making sure the fees are public information. In a sign of how expensive bankruptcies are, even the person responsible for preventing excessive fees will be well paid. Fishman’s typical hourly rate is $675. He’s discounting his hourly rate to $600 for Detroit.

As Detroit enters the federal bankruptcy process, the city is proposing a controversial plan for paring some of the $5.7 billion it owes in retiree health costs: pushing many of those too young to qualify for Medicare out of city-run coverage and into the new insurance markets that will soon be operating under the Obama health care law. Officials say the plan would be part of a broader effort to save Detroit tens of millions of dollars in health costs each year, a major element in a restructuring package that must be approved by a bankruptcy judge.

Senators Joe Donnelly (D-IN) and Susan Collins (R-ME) introduced a measure Wednesday that would change the definition of a full-time worker under the Affordable Care Act.The proposal is aimed at preventing workers from having their hours scaled back as businesses try to cope with the additional cost of providing insurance.Under the ACA, businesses with 50 or more employees must provide healthcare coverage to full-time workers. Currently, anyone who averages 30 hours or more per week is considered full-time. But, Donnelly says that’s not in line with reality.

Michigan City – A pair of new police cars are about to hit the streets of Michigan City, and you might be amazed what they look like. The city through South Shore Clean Cities has received a donation from the “THINK” Electric Car Company of two electric cars for the police department. “In January, I began to inquire about the cars and their possible use,” said Michigan City Police Sgt. Chris Yagelski. “I thought the uniqueness of the cars and the fact that they were 100% “green” led me to the possible creation of a new public relations tool for the police department.

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. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

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. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

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

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

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

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
