Hamilton Police Shooting Video…Fast Transients In Action!

This  video depicts fast transient maneuvers on both the adversarial and friendly sides. An unknown risk stop (KEEP IN MIND ALL CONTACTS ARE UNKNOWN RISK). A red-light violation, turned possible operating under the influence, turns to a deadly assault and use of deadly force engagement all in about 30 seconds from contact to shots fired.

You cannot see the suspect in this video until the gun pops out the window and threatens the officers life. Listen to the initial conversation however and the response to the question, Officer; How much have you had to drink tonight? Answer: PLENTY! Officer; How much? Answer; Gun comes out the window!

My opinion on the answer, PLENTY is its out of the normal pattern of behavior, even for a possible drunk. Most do not respond in that way. If listened to closely it is an F— YOU answer??? A SUBTLE SIGN OF CONTEMPT! A fraction of a second later the suspect is trying to kill a cop! (your thoughts on this I am intersected in!)

Note the reactions of the officer. The initial OH SHIT MOMENT! (which the officer actually states out loud) too directing the gun away, too what appears to be a fraction of a second of disbelief (frequently occurs in all of us) on the part of the officer until the adversaries gun was fired. Then we get movement out of the line of fire, while calmly drawing and then accurately shooting the suspect. The fast transients take place fast, in fractions of seconds in this case allowing the officer to WIN! Continue Reading

Suspect: al-Qaida ordered suicide attack in NYC

NEW YORK — They were former classmates at a New York high school, both on a mission to join the Taliban and fight U.S. forces in Afghanistan.

But when Zarein Ahmedzay and Najibullah Zazi arrived in Pakistan in the summer of 2008, two high-ranking al-Qaida operatives gave them another set of marching orders.

“They told us we would be more useful if we returned to New York City … to conduct operations,” Ahmedzay said Friday in a guilty plea that offered more chilling details of a foiled plot attack on the New York City subways last fall.

Asked by a judge in federal court in Brooklyn what kind of operations, he responded: “Suicide-bombing operations.”

The attacks were to coincide with Ramadan and target landmarks, but the plan was scaled back because the conspirators didn’t have enough homemade explosives

Attacks against contractors surging in Afghanistan

KANDAHAR, Afghanistan — The message, very often, is sent with bloodshed.

A suicide bombing last week on a fortified Kandahar guesthouse shared by Western contracting companies killed four Afghans and injured several Americans. An Afghan engineer was shot dead in March as he helped inspect a school not far from the Pakistan border. An Afghan woman who worked for a U.S.-based consulting firm was shot by motorbike-riding gunmen as she headed home in this southern city.

Attacks on U.S. contractors, construction companies and aid organizations have been rising just as the United States pushes faster development of Afghanistan, one of the world’s poorest countries, as a priority in its strategy to counter the insurgency.

The number of contractor attacks is elusive since the workers are from many nations and work for a number of different organizations, but the toll has jumped precipitously since President Barack Obama launched a massive troop surge last December.

Of the 289 civilians working for U.S. contractors killed between the start of the Afghanistan war in late 2001 and the end of last year, 100 died in just the last six months of 2009, according to a report by the Congressional Research Service.

Arizona signs tough immigration bill

Arizona’s governor has signed into law an immigration bill seen as one of the toughest in the US, despite strong criticism by President Barack Obama.

The bill signed by Governor Jan Brewer will require state police to question people about their immigration status if there is “reasonable suspicion”.

The bill – which takes effect in 90 days – also makes it a crime under state law to be in the US illegally.

President Obama has described the law in the US border state as “misguided”. Rajesh Mirchandani reports.
