University bans guns…students robbed at gunpoint on campus

armed-robbery 500x200

Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) in Cleveland, Ohio, has “beefed up security measures” after four students were robbed in one of the university’s commons “in broad daylight” this past weekend.

The CWRU online student handbook clearly “prohibits the possession of firearms” on campus.

According to Cleveland.com, the students were studying in CWRU’s Wade Commons around 4:30 in the afternoon, when “three men, with hooded sweatshirts tied around their face and red bandanas, came into the RedCats room, pulled out a silver handgun and demanded belongings.”

On June 10, a woman walking on campus in front of the business school building was approached by two men and robbed at gunpoint. The gunman was not apprehended.

I hope their “security measures” are not to simply put up more signs.

Man kills two in cold blood, takes 2 hours to execute…Liberals worried that he suffered.

Family members of the victims, Jeanne Brown, left, who had a sister and father murdered, speaks during a news conference as her husband Richard Brown listens, after the nearly two hour long execution of Joseph Rudolph Wood at the state prison on Wednesday, July 23, 2014, in Florence, Ariz.

Family members of the victims, Jeanne Brown, left, who had a sister and father murdered, speaks during a news conference as her husband Richard Brown listens, after the nearly two hour long execution of Joseph Rudolph Wood at the state prison on Wednesday, July 23, 2014, in Florence, Ariz.

On the day of the shooting, Joseph Rudolph Wood went to the auto shop and waited for Gene Dietz, who disapproved of his daughter’s relationship with Wood, to get off the phone. Once the father hung up, Wood pulled out a revolver, shot him in the chest and then smiled.

Wood then turned his attention toward Debbie Dietz, who was trying to telephone for help. Wood grabbed her by the neck and put his gun to her chest. She pleaded with him to spare her life. An employee heard Wood say, “I told you I was going to do it. I have to kill you.” He then called her an expletive and fired two shots in her chest.

Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne’s office said Joseph Rudolph Wood was pronounced dead at 3:49 p.m. local time, one hour and 57 minutes after the execution started. Witnesses say he gasped for breath for more than an hour.

“One thing is certain, however,” Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer said, “Wood died in a lawful manner and by eyewitness and medical accounts he did not suffer. This is in stark comparison to the gruesome, vicious suffering that he inflicted on his two victims – and the lifetime of suffering he has caused their family.”

“This man conducted a horrific murder and you guys are going, let’s worry about the drugs,” said Richard Brown, the brother-in-law of Debbie Dietz, who was 29 when she was killed in 1989. “Why didn’t they give him a bullet, why didn’t we give him Drano?”

Race based grading system coming to a Liberal University near you…and we’ll pretend it’s not racist.

UW-Madison 500x200

UW-Madison’s diversity guidelines state that if a course, major or program is in high demand, special status must be given to ensure the make-up of the class (and thus those taking the major) is racially and ethnically diverse with “just the right percentages.” Meaning, it would be justifiable for a placement in hard-to-get-in classes and prerequisites for specific majors be awarded to students based solely on their race.

Especially shocking is the language about “equity” in the distribution of grades. Professors, instead of just awarding the grade that each student earns, would apparently have to adjust them so that academically weaker, “historically underrepresented racial/ethnic” students perform at the same level and receive the same grades as academically stronger students.

At the very least, this means even greater expenditures on special tutoring for weaker targeted minority students. It is also likely to trigger a new outbreak of grade inflation, as professors find out that they can avoid trouble over “inequitable” grade distributions by giving every student a high grade.

In short, the new diversity requirements seem to say that campus commitment to diversity is so important that the grading system itself must be sacrificed. This would mean  an environment now exists where academic performance no longer matters. That for the diversity crowd, all that seems to be of value would be that “historically underrepresented racial/ethnic” students be awarded “equitable” grades to their counterparts, regardless.

CDC Releases new HIV stats with surprising results…or are they?

hiv-test-ap 500x200

A new report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that although the annual diagnosis rate of HIV has dropped by one-third in the general population, the percentage is increasing among young gay and bisexual males. HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, has been dropping among heterosexuals, drug users, and women, but the rate for young gay and bisexual males has risen over 100%.

Co-author Amy Lansky, deputy director for surveillance, epidemiology, and laboratory sciences at the CDC’s Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention, admitted that the increased occurrences of HIV among young gay and bisexual males are “a considerable problem.” She said 1.1 million people in the U.S. are estimated to have contracted HIV and added that 16% of that number—roughly 176,000 people—don’t know they have the disease.

The CDC report, published in the July 23/30 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association, found that in the period between 2002 to 2011, among people 13 and older, the diagnosis of HIV fell from 24 out of every 100,000 people to 16, a 33% drop. Women saw the number of diagnoses cut in half; men dropped by 25%, blacks plunged 37%, and Hispanics dropped 41%. Among those who had heterosexual sex, the number dropped more than 33% for men and women.

But among males 13-24, the number of HIV diagnoses soared. New diagnoses climbed from 3,000 to 7,000.

TSA misses loaded gun and knife but still insist they need to fondle your privates

"Did you know you have a molar that's loose?"

“Did you know you have a molar that’s loose?”

A TSA agent blamed for letting one man carrying a loaded handgun and another with a flip knife board Phoenix-to-London flights on the same day last month is out of a job, FoxNews.com has learned.

Both passengers flew the more than 10 hour flights to London with the weapons in their carry-on bags, sources told FoxNews.com. Neither passenger tried to use the weapons while aboard the flights, though the shocking security lapse raises obvious questions about whether passengers with bad intentions might slip through security. Both weapons were found by security officials at London’s Heathrow Airport as they attempted to transfer onto connecting flights.

In the more serious of the two June 22 incidents, William Joseph Richardson was going through transfer screening at Heathrow Airport to board a British Airways flight to Paris when airport security discovered his loaded Glock handgun, according to a document reviewed by FoxNews.com.

Seven hours later, British airport security discovered the knife on another passenger going through transfer screening to board a British Airways flight. That passenger had arrived on a different flight from Phoenix and had traveled with a 3.9-inch flip knife, which London Aviation Police confiscated, the document said.

“Evil” Koch Brothers Donate $25M to United Negro College Fund…Liberals Absolutely Livid

UNCF-500x200

Charles and David Koch have made a big $25 million donation to the United Negro College Fund (UNCF), the organization announced Friday.

The UNCF is the largest provider of scholarships to black college students in the U.S. and also supports historically black colleges and universities. The $25 million donation is the fifth-largest ever received by the group.

The donation, which is being made by Koch Industries Inc. as well as the Charles Koch Foundation, will be split between $18.5 million that will support a new Koch Scholars Program of nearly 3,000 individual scholarships and $6.5 million that will provide general support to the UNCF and historically black colleges. The Koch Scholars Program will run for seven years.

Michael Lomax, president and CEO of UNCF, told the Associated Press that he’s happy to take the donation regardless of the ire it may raise from those who dislike the Kochs’ politics.

“Criticism is a small price for helping young people get the chance to realize their dream of a college education, and if I’ve got to bear the brunt of someone else’s criticism to ensure that we have the resources to help those students, then I can handle it,” Lomax said.

Meanwhile, the AFSCME (American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees), which represents 1.6 million public workers, has ended its paid internship program with the UNCF over its embrace of the conservative Koch brothers and has announced that it has cut all ties with the charity, but still hasn’t pulled it’s page promoting the UNCF from it’s web site (maybe it’s union workers aren’t off their break yet)

Reportedly the AFSCME donates $50,000 to $60,000 a year for the scholarship program and “hundreds of thousands” of dollars annually, which means the $25 million donated by the Koch brothers will offset the AFSCME donations for the next 100 or so years.

As usual, Liberals are very bad at math.
