Arrest Made in Case of Brutal Home Invader/Woman Beater Caught on NannyCam
— Ace

I gotta think that a lot of people are thinking about NannyCams right now, even with no kids and no nanny.

Of course, some might also be thinking about a gun.

The Essex County prosecutor's office said 42-year-old Shawn Custis was arrested in Manhattan by the prosecutor's office and the FBI. Custis faces charges of attempted murder, robbery, burglary and child endangerment. A judge set bail at $750,000.

The attack last Friday in Millburn was captured on a hidden camera in the woman's home. A man can be seen bursting into the home, punching and kicking the woman and throwing her down the stairs while her 3-year-old daughter cowered on a couch.

maybe in a few years (wrongly imho). still he won't walk. people saw this i hope and thought of their daughters, mothers, gramma, sister.

57 Even though violent crimes went up last year, for over a decade violent crime has in general been down trending. I wonder if this is in part due to the knowledge that your DNA can easily give you away, plus the ubiquitous videocams now running everywhere.
 
I'm not discounting the effect of loosened self defense laws either; specifically concealed carry and castle doctrine laws.

136 There's gonna be no one left to play when the season starts...... (CNN) -- Indianapolis Colts safety Joe Lefeged was arrested early Saturday in Washington on five charges, including carrying a firearm without a license, a DC Metro police spokesman told CNN. A white Camaro that the NFL player was riding in attracted the attention of police for driving erratically, spokesman Araz Alali said. Police tried to make a traffic stop, but the vehicle fled the scene. The driver fled and has not been located, Alali said. Lefeged, 25, and another passenger fled a short distance but were arrested without incident, he said. Police could not confirm whether others had also been inside the car.

But they’re not leaving without giving Governor Hickenlooper and the Democrat Assembly one final middle-finger salute: The ammunition magazine manufacturer will take part in the “A Farewell to Arms” festival in Infinity Park in Glendale on Saturday. On July 1, the law — which limits bans gun magazines to hold no more than 15 rounds and was signed by Gov. John Hickenlooper in March — goes into effect. The first 1,500 attendees who are at least 18 years old will get a magazine, the company’s Web page said. The event is hosted by the nonprofit Free Colorado, which advocates for the rights of gun owners, according to its website.

2) PowerLine has a great point regarding how the leftists view the Tea Party as a greater threat than Al Qaeda. It's because they see us as terrorists attacking their religion, government. So, it's no accident they use "Tea Party Republican" in their fundraising efforts--it's "San Francisco liberal" times 1000 with an extra helping of blood libel.

King was caught and sentenced to 25 years in prison after the Deen robbery and a separate robbery. He lives in Brooklyn, New York, now and when we spoke to him, he actually broke down in tears. He blames himself for Paula Deen's troubles. "I really feel for her," King said. "She's being persecuted because of that one little mistake in her judgment.

I only do entry when I have enough gap and space around the vehicle to do so, there is a bracket to put the screen near eye level. I was trying to convey that truckers would be well served by a hud if it wouldn't be abused as dispatch could in al likelihood do timetable modification and traffic flow adjustments. Of course truckers being truckers they'd jury rig it to watch nude gymnastics. I wouldn't take a ris mor deadly than using the cb is, I promise. I've been in one wreck that was my fault ever, and it was due to a bad repair I made. Not flaming anyone or angry jsut setting minds at ease. The traffic is thick the rest of the trip but may e just south of Columbus IN. Again apologies for the torture, but it's SCIENC! Well sorta...I mean it is a safety benchmark thing. I'm in my F 150 this trip but when I've ben in my man vehicle I've seen safety risks that would astound. My conclusion thus far is that anything smaller than a tablet's voice recog would be too weak for this to work andthat a tablet would catch your gaze too hard.

That reminds me: one of the local PDs (Irving, maybe?) just started a new program for girls through their ISD- it's like a six-week (after school, maybe?) self-defense class. I think that's pretty cool. Of course, six-weeks is just enough time to get you into trouble, but it's at least good that a) it teaches the girls that they *can* defend themselves and b) it teaches them that, when it counts, they can't count on anyone but themselves.

Rush spoke about the infiltration of gangster culture into the NFL this week. I would go so far as to say it is infiltrating more than the NFL. I have had several discussions with my grandson about how trash, tattooos and violence are infiltrating his suburban high school. He doesn't like it.

Posted by: Miss Marple at June 29, 2013 02:53 PM (GoIUi)


That's true based on my experience, too.

In the case of the NFL, this is enough to make me find something else to do with my time during the NFL season. Aaron Hernandez is the most egregious case since he likely committed at least three murders and shot another guy in the head, with two of the murders taking place before last season and Patriots fans (including moi) actually rooted for the guy not knowing he had likely killed two guys. Also, look at Colin Kaepernick. I'm not accusing him of committing any crimes and he's obviously free to get as many tattoos as he wants, but he looks like a freakin' convict incarcerated at San Quentin. His look really perpetuates the thug culture of the NFL, whether the player is actually living the thug culture or simply looking like they would like to be linked to it. Then you have how many other NFL players from different teams who have been arrested for various crimes since the end of last season? Every team pretty much can face the same problem since the pool of players that they are picking from include a decent percentage of former gang bangers, friends of gang bangers, and other criminals.

The worst part is that, in general, most of the other professional leagues aren't much better morally than the NFL, especially the thugs playing in the NBA and, to a lesser degree, in Major League Baseball. But, of course, the latter has serious performance-enhancing drug issues, as does the NFL. Perhaps it's time for most sports fans to limit sports viewing to the NHL so we're not spending hard-earned cash that goes into the pockets of scumbags and thugs.

I do know his background and strong educational performance, as well as his upbringing, but he's certainly picked an unusual way to display his faith, especially considering the stigma associated with an excessive number of tattoos. By all accounts, he's a good kid. It's certainly his business but he has to know how it is perceived based on the behaviors of 90+% of individuals who go for the same tatted up look (including Aaron Hernandez). I am just very critical of people who get an excessive amount of tattoos, which are a favorite practice of gangster culture and criminals. Anything that normalizes oft-used practices of gang bangers and criminals is not exactly something any of us should be enthused to see in our society and culture.

BTW, I feel the same way about baggy pants hanging down below the ass crack, which has been in fashion for the past 20 years or so, as has the use of ebonics. The fact that both of these practices are favorites of kids of all races in suburbia, not just in the inner-city, is especially disconcerting. Oh, yeah, and I also don't like change, kids on my lawn, or listening to that damn rock music.

I believe the article said it occurred around the first decade of the twentieth century. Anyway, the point is that homes were designed with security and defensibility in mind before the shift, now they are nearly indefensible. As much as I advocate anyone having a gun, I think everyone would be better off if they had a more secure home. I always find it amusing that a friend of mine who lives in a neighborhood infested with black bears has no way of keeping a determined bear out of his house and nowhere to retreat to if one entered his house. not likely to happen but if it did he and his family are screwed.

It's very difficult for me to not only support scumbags playing a sport, but to invest time and money doing it. In the defense of the teams, how the heck do you prevent it if you want to be successful? Hernandez slid to the fourth round of the NFL draft because every team was concerned about his background. Even the Patriots passed over him five times in the 2010 NFL draft despite Hernandez being a first-round talent. If they didn't pick him, someone else probably would've soon thereafter. Plus, the Patriots have taken on problem players in the past but they behaved and became very good team-oriented players who stayed out of trouble. Well, until now and this one pretty much invalidates all of those success stories

It probably would have been better for Hernandez to get picked by a different team in a different part of the country so that he wouldn't have been so close to his hometown, as he was from Connecticut before attending college at U. of Florida. That's not an excuse because the guy is obviously a POS but it certainly didn't help the situation. Knowing what we know about him now, I'm actually surprised it took 2-3 years for him to resort to start acting like a criminal.

But no, we aren't allowed to discuss the elephant in the room and if whites try to move away from violent blacks to avoid being beaten, raped, or murdered ... they are called racists Posted by: Flatbush Joe did you see the article linked by Drudge discussing how "whites do not get it" in one way or another? someone needs to write some articles discussing ho blacks do not get it or understand whites.

If the mango is soft ripe, no need to peel. the pit is narrow, fillet the mango off the pit with a flexible knife, score the fruit into diamond pattern, and scoop out the flesh with a spoon.

 

we like hard green mango, and use a vegetable peeler then slice off the flesh and eat with vinegar and soy sauce.

You're 100% right. The character quotient for our entire society has been lowering at an increasing rate for decades.

I don't know if we can blame Clinton, but he certainly made it easier for some people (i.e., his supporters) to excuse poor behavior. Of course, they not only excused it but attacked those of us who expected more from people and a civilized society. Suddenly, I was called a hypocrite for bashing Clinton and supporting his impeachment because I had engaged in underaged drinking back in college, received a speeding ticket, and, worst of all, had pre-marital sex. Honestly, that's what a couple of liberal acquaintances said to me in the late '90s when the Clinton impeachment was being debated. They apparently thought I was a member of the evangelical wing of the conservative movement despite them knowing that I wasn't particularly religious. I just believed that people who have been given responsibility and great power over others should have character and be ethical. Of course, they thought the same when a Republican was in office but suddenly didn't care when a Democrat was in office. Yet, I was the hypocrite.

380 Folks, you need to remember that the Zimmerman trial is taking place in Florida; one of the first places to have a concealed carry permit and IIRC one of the first places to put in a "no duty to retreat" - "stand your ground law". This is what liberals can do to someone who stands his ground and has a carry permit in such a state.

In the Peoples Paradise of Soviet New Jersey a victim has a duty to retreat - even in their own house. (However, you are not required to retreat from your own dwelling.) What do you think the liberals would do to you in such a state - if you were to shoot an assailant? Remember, to Liberals - criminals rank next to Muslims as a protected class.

The Patriots were that way at one time, but it makes it difficult to be competitive in the league when an increasingly higher percentage of scumbags exist among the possible players you can draft and sign as free agents. The players are simply a reflection of our society as a whole. There are honest, ethical people among us, but it seems like there is a constantly decreasing number of scumbags.

Some innercity charter schools teach in Latin. It's supposed to have simplified (completely phonetic) spelling and be a good foundation for teaching the oddity that is English.

411 Niedermeyer-
Charter schools are still tax money so there are a lot of strings attached.
We are what is called unschooled as opposed to home schooled.  The kids know what they need to get done and learn to set their own schedule.  They are forced to think for themselves.
The best part is you are not tied to public school schedules.  We take vacation during off peak times (no crowds).  Anytime we want a 3 day weekend or the wife wants to travel to relatives it is no problem.
I refuse to let the government set my schedule.

Funny enough, this worked very well when I worked rotating shifts for NSA. lol

I always find it interesting that liberals are willing to sacrifice others to achieve their goals. if someone were serious about ebonics they would yank their kids out of some swanky private school and have them learn ebonics in oakland. same with affirmative action. if you are serious about affirmative action do not shove it down the throats of the generations below you, force it on yourselves. as much as the boomers are not responsible for the wrongs of slavery, those following are even less responsible. if you wan tot right the wrongs do it on your back, not on the back of someone else, that is simply another wrong.

I learned to write and become proficient at cursive by the time I left second grade.  And, yes,  I was taught in a public school.......in 1956.

 

I think the reason cursive isn't taught in schools nowdays is because of what you wrote.  There's too  much original  American history written in cursive, whether it's a letter from one of our founding fathers or  our own fathers and grandfathers.  Mustn't be teaching our kids that, huh?

Another factor is the 'sealed records' of young thugs...permitting them to commit a myriad of crimes while they are young, without it showing up in their adult record.

I coach and occasionally substitute teach at one.  The local public schools hate us because we take their kids (more importantly, the tax dollars attached to them).  Charter schools have to follow the same regulations and take the same End of Grade tests as the public schools, but have more flexibility in deciding how to achieve their goals.  Oversight comes from the charter school's executive board instead of the state Board of Education.

443 We used charter schools while living in Sara Palin's evil Alaska.  The public schools there realized they could pay you to home school, but you were counted as enrolled in public school.  Each student had about 3500 dollars to spend for anything education related (books, swimming lessons, music lessons, computers etc).  The school pocketed the 9 to 10 grand difference.

Not actually sure I still can. -Peaches I'm only 59 and 22 months myself, Peaches. Although I have lapsed in recent months, I started keeping a journal a couple of years ago, just writing in it something daily. Took a while to get back into it, but even my awful handwriting started looking better, with practice. Filled several blank booklets. What was it, 4th grade? I began to realize, the girls had perfect classic cursive and I was going to forever be stuck with my awkward chicken scratches. I can make it pretty, but it's harder than walking backward. Think of how the brain is employed in typing. Then think of what you do in handwriting, much less cursive. Different brain, almost. And long thought required as opposed to babbling as fast as fingers can fly. Also, if you're not too good at out-loud or in-your-head conversations with the Almighty, it's not a bad way to get some thoughts out. Now having said this... I need to get back to it again.

For us unschooling just means we don't try to be a public school at the dining room table.
Our kids never spent more than three hours a day on their work.  If you make sure they can read well, and are provided with plenty of good literature, everything else will be fine.  Good reading comprehension is the most important thing.
Every home schooled family is different, find what works for you and your kids.

Now truth to tell she had managed to tie the guy to the bed before she started her "kitchen work" as it were.  So maybe somebody will have to tie this clown to the bunk in this cell.  Then bring the woman , a knife, and a garbage disposal into his cell.  What could go wrong? Would she be a repeater with a cleaver?
