"Hit-and-run victim’s family recalls his kindness, ambition" by Eric Moskowitz, Globe Staff | December 26, 2009
The family of the Milton man killed in an apparent hit-and-run in Quincy earlier this week spent Christmas struggling to come to terms with the tragedy, while police continued to search for the driver and the vehicle that struck him.
Paul F. Moore was three weeks past his 63d birthday when police discovered his body on the snow-covered sidewalk on Robertson Street Thursday morning with what authorities described as severe trauma to his upper torso. Moore’s five children, all in their teens or 20s, and his wife are “just beside themselves,’’ said Karen McEachern of Milton, who had been friends with Moore since they met in a North Quincy bowling league in the late 1960s.
“I think it’s just so outrageous that anybody could hit somebody and leave them there,’’ said Marti Moore of Hanover, Moore’s sister-in-law. “You know when you hit something. You know when you drive over something in the road. To hit somebody with that force and to just leave them, it’s just horrendous. I just can’t imagine anybody could be that cruel and insensitive.’’
No one likes to take blame or own up in finger-pointing AmeriKa -- something the MSM has helped to promote when it comes to certain war-criminal liars and thieves.
No arrests have been made, and the investigation continued yesterday, Quincy police said.
Yeah, cops are to busy busting down doors of potheads, et al.
And that "good Samaritan" you thought you saw?
“Earlier this month, police wrapped up a 30-day sting involving plainclothes officers mimicking tourists and other pedestrians. Once they were panhandled, they essentially became victims guaranteed to show up for a trial”
Why not GIVE IT to the PANHANDLERS instead?
Well, this guy won't have to worry about it -- and Christmas will never be the same around his house.
The police identified Moore as homeless; his former address, a five-bedroom Colonial on Milton’s Houghton Road, is boarded up....
It's FORECLOSURE, isn't it?
McEachern and Marti Moore said those close to Moore sought repeatedly to reach out to him during recent tough times in which he lost his home to foreclosure, separated from his wife, and became fixated on winning his home back, drifting about his former communities.
Yeah, BANKERS and WAR LOOTERS get TRILLIONS, but this poor chap -- RUN DOWN in the STREET!!!!
“We were trying to get him help, trying to do what we could for him, but in the end, he just kind of thought he could fix things and just wasn’t looking for help,’’ said Marti Moore, who is married to Moore’s brother, Brian. “We tried desperately.’’
Translation: He was a PROUD MAN who BOUGHT INTO the LIES of our society!
HELP is ONLY for CERTAIN SPECIFIED AGENDAS and GROUPS!!
“We all tried to help him. He was - I don’t know what the word is - I just think of ‘down on his luck,’ ’’ McEachern said. “We were all reaching out to help him, his family especially, and it’s a very sad time.’’
Oh, he was "down on his luck" was he?
He should have been a banker. They seem to roll in good luck.
"Man charged in deadly hit-and-run
A Quincy man turned himself in yesterday following the Christmas Eve hit-and-run that killed Paul Moore of Milton. Paul Daly, 61, contacted Quincy authorities after police and the Norfolk district attorney held a news conference Thursday. Daly was charged with motor vehicle homicide due to negligent operation, leaving the scene of an accident causing death, and negligent operation of a motor vehicle. Captain John Dougan said Daly will be arraigned in January. The reason Daly left the scene is under investigation, he said.
I wish it were an isolated incident; however....
"Man hit, killed on walk to VFW post; Driver, allegedly drunk, fled scene, police say" by Jack Nicas, Globe Correspondent | December 26, 2009
It was a Christmas Eve tradition: Scott Callahan would walk the half-mile to the Methuen VFW post to wish the veterans a Merry Christmas, his family said. This year, the walk turned fatal.
A Springfield man, allegedly driving drunk with a revoked license, hit and killed Callahan, 51, late Thursday night and fled the scene on foot, police said. Authorities arrested Arturo Cruz Jr., 29, hours after the tragic accident.
“Instead of a festive mood today, it’s somber,’’ the victim’s sister, Diana Coates of Dracut, said through tears yesterday morning. “We’re planning funeral arrangements instead of exchanging gifts.’’
Another family's Christmas ruined for years to come.
At 11:43 p.m., Methuen police responded to an accident on Union Street, where they found Callahan lying in the road. Nearby, a green
“There was no one in the car,’’ said Methuen Police Sergeant Steve Debs.
Callahan, a father of two and grandfather of two, was pronounced dead at Caritas Holy Family Hospital in Methuen, police said. Police arrested Cruz before sunrise yesterday. He was charged with leaving the scene of an accident after causing death, operating under the influence of alcohol, and operating after license revocation, according to Essex County prosecutors.
And then a legitimate update:
My printed paper:
Registry officials could not access Cruz's driving record yesterday to explain why his license was revoked.
Cruz’s license was revoked because he did not pay fines, Methuen police said....
Just wondering why they couldn't access it at first?
Who was protecting this scum from my neck of the woods?
Or are the police just fibbing you?

"Salvation Army worker killed by robber" by Associated Press | December 26, 2009
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - A Salvation Army worker was shot and killed Christmas Eve in front of his three young children by a man who attempted to rob him outside the charity’s community center in North Little Rock, a Salvation Army official said yesterday.
That's not right. That is not right.

Wise, 40, had gone to the center with his children to pick up his wife - also a Salvation Army major - to drive to his mother’s home in West Virginia, said Major Harvey Johnson, area commander of Salvation Army....

"Al-Qaida link in failed plane attack" by Larry Margasak and Lara Jakes, Associated Press Writer | December 25, 2009
I am SO SICK and TIRED of "Al-CIA-Duh!"
Come to think of it, he probably was acting on orders!
Passengers subdued the man and may have prevented him from detonating the explosives, the officials said. "We believe this was an attempted act of terrorism," a White House official said.
That is why the OFFICIAL STORY of 9/11 STINKS!!
You can not tell me that Americans would not have CHARGED HIJACKERS wielding BOX-CUTTERS(?!?!) with their luggage!!!!!
Yeah, the whole 9/11 account from the government and MSM stinks to high heaven -- and the world knows it.
Federal officials imposed stricter screening measures after the incident....
And CUI BONO, 'eh?
That's all this was about!
Keeping you on your toes and advancing tyranny.
Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., ranking GOP member of the House Homeland Security Committee, identified the suspect as Abdul Mudallad, a Nigerian. King said the flight began in Nigeria and went through Amsterdam en route to Detroit....
Okay, keep the name and spelling in mind as well as the Amsterdam thing.
One of the U.S. intelligence officials said the explosive device was a mix of powder and liquid. It failed when the passenger tried to detonate it....
Blogs are saying firecracker!!
A law enforcement source said the explosives may have been strapped to the man's body but investigators weren't immediately certain, partly because of the struggle with other passengers.
I heard FIRECRACKER in a PILLOWCASE!
The passenger was being questioned Friday evening. An intelligence source said the Nigerian passenger was being held and treated in an Ann Arbor, Mich., hospital. One law enforcement source said the man claimed to have been instructed by al-Qaida to detonate the plane over U.S. soil. The official said an official determination of a terrorist act would have to come from the attorney general. The official added that additional security measures are being taken without raising the airline threat level.
Translation: THIS is BULLS***!!!!
The official declined to describe what additional measures law enforcement was taking. The White House was coordinating briefings for the president through the Homeland Security Department, the Transportation Security Administration and the FBI....
Rich Griffith, a passenger from Pontiac, said he was seated too far in the back to see what had happened. But he said he didn't mind being detained on the plane for several hours. "It's frustrating if you don't want to keep your country safe," he said. "We can't have what's going on everywhere else happening here."
And CUI BONO, readers, -- especially when the airlines have been coming under fire for such things?
And the MSM TROTS out this FASCIST AUTOMATON to SELL the LIE -- if he even exists!!
Yes, dear readers, it HAS COME TO THAT with the AGENDA-PUSHING MSM and there TRIPLE-PLAY SPECIAL of CENSORSHIP!!!
President Barack Obama was notified of the incident and discussed it with security officials, the White House said. It said he is monitoring the situation and receiving regular updates from his vacation spot in Hawaii....
Thanks for playing along with the lies, 'bamer. How disappointing.
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has been briefed on the incident and is closely monitoring the situation. The department encouraged travelers to be observant and aware of their surroundings and report any suspicious behavior to law enforcement officials.
Yeah, if I see any CIA PATSIES or PUKES roaming the airport I will never go to again, then, yeah, I'll let you know!
What the blogs told us overnight:

Passenger Ignites Explosive on Delta Flight, Al Qaeda Connection Reported
The suspect, who suffered second-degree burns, told federal investigators he was directed by al-Qaeda, though authorities are questioning the veracity of that statement, ABC reported. A federal situational awareness bulletin noted that the explosive was acquired in Yemen with instructions as to when it should be used, ABC said.

"Officials: Possible terror attack on Northwest jet A 23-year-old Nigerian man tried to light a powdery substance aboard a Northwest Airlines flight before landing in Detroit on Friday, a senior U.S. counterterrorism official told NBC News. Two people noticed the attempt and a third person jumped on the man and subdued him, an airline official told NBC News.
"Okay, one of two cases applies.
1. This is yet another in a long line of staged phony "terror" attempts to scare us all into going along with the war agenda.

A Nigerian reported to be studying in Britain allegedly tried to blow up a transatlantic airliner on Christmas Day in what the White House called an attempted act of terrorism.

What appeared in my printed Boston Globe, but is absent from their website (I did the search):
"Nigerian held in act of terror on airliner; Man tries to ignite bomb; jet lands safely in Detroit" by Sebastian Rotella, Tribune Newspapers | December 26, 2009
WASHINGTON -- In what was described as an act of terrorism, a Nigerian passenger attempted to ignite an incendiary device Friday aboard a Northwest Airlines flight from Amsterdam to Detroit as the plane began its approach for landing, federal officials said. The plane landed safely shortly before noon.
The suspected would-be bomber suffered burns as the result of his attempt, and two of the other 277 passengers reported minor injuries, authorities said. FBI agents were investigating the incident, which a White House official said was thought to be an attempted act of terrorism.
"He was trying to ignite some kind of incendiary device," said a federal anti-terrorism official, who requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the case. "He lit himself on fire, and he's suffered some burns."
And I have NOTED a PASSAGE! Let's proceed and see if it's included here.
The Department of Homeland Security said passengers might see additional screening measures on domestic and international flights because of the incident and urged travelers to report any suspicious activity or behavior to law enforcement officials.
Now I find this web-searched item is a REEDITED REWRITE!!!
The FBI is expected to focus on whether the Nigerian acted alone or had training from al-Qaida or another network. There also will be great interest in the nature and destructive capacity of the explosive device and on how it got past airport screening....
Yeah, I'LL BET that will all be FORGOTTEN REAL SOON!!
Nigerians have not figured in many cases involving al-Qaida, but the rise of violent Islamic extremism in that country, and in sub-Saharan Africa overall, concerns Western anti-terrorism officials. The timing and description of the incident recall the attempted attack on a Paris-to-Miami flight eight years ago by "shoe-bomber" Richard Reid, a British al-Qaida operative....
So Reid was MI-6, huh?
Did he work withe these guys?
Kinda a kick in the head, huh?
And those passages I had noted in my printed paper with [cut]?
"[The plane was 20 minutes from the airport when it sounded like a firecracker had exploded, witnesses said].
"It sounded like a firecracker in a pillowcase," said Peter Smith, a passenger from the Netherlands, according to The Associated Press. "First there was a pop, and then (there) was smoke."
Smith said a passenger sitting opposite the man climbed over passengers, went across the aisle and tried to restrain the suspect.
I did that to prove a point!
The LYING, OBFUSCATING, DISTORTING MSM sure worked hard to ELIMINATE that from the account, huh?
Oh, btw, the further searched yielded this:
"It was not clear Friday whether Mutallab underwent security screening in Amsterdam or merely changed planes there. It also was uncertain Friday night whether Mutallab had ties to a terrorist organization or had attempted the attack on his own. Despite earlier reports that he had claimed a connection to al-Qaida, Mutallab denied any such link in later statements to FBI agents interrogating him, the anti-terrorism official said.
Yeah, now the EQUIVOCATING BACK-PEDDLING BEGINS!!!
"Right now he is saying he was not part of an organization or a coordinated effort. I want to caution people from jumping headlong into the al-Qaida link because it's a very murky area," the official said.
Translation: The GOVERNMENT KNOWS this is BS, otherwise they would be spewing lies like the did with Zazi.
Mutallab allegedly smuggled a powder aboard the plane in a container taped to his leg, the official said.
Then WHY DIDN'T SECURITY SEE IT?
Covering himself with a blanket to hide his actions, he used a syringe to inject a liquid into the powder and a fire resulted from the mix, according to the official.... One of the focuses of the investigation will be how the incendiary device got past airport security screeners.
Yeah, sure it will be.
The anti-terrorism official denied reports that Mutallab had been on the government's "no-fly" list of suspected extremists and other potentially dangerous people, which is shared with airlines. However, the official did not rule out the possibility that the Nigerian had been on some other U.S. government database.
Like the list of CIA AGENTS?!!!
And WHO BETTER to bring it to you!!
"Alleged terror act on plane foiled; Detained suspect claims Al Qaeda ties" by Anahad O’Connor and Eric Schmitt, New York Times | December 26, 2009
A Nigerian man with possible terrorist ties sneaked an explosive onto a trans-Atlantic
The device, described by officials as a mixture of powder and liquid, failed to fully detonate. Passengers on the plane described a series of pops that sounded like firecrackers.
At least the Times reported that.
Federal officials said the man wanted to bring the plane down.... “This was the real deal,’’ said Representative Peter King of New York, the ranking Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee, who was briefed on the event and said something had gone wrong with the explosive device, which he described as somewhat sophisticated. “This could have been devastating,’’ King said.
It was unclear how the man, identified by federal officials as Abdul Farouk Abdulmutallab, 23, managed to get the explosive on the plane....
Why is the name spelled differently?
A senior Department of Homeland Security official said that the device Abdulmutallab had on him was “more incendiary than explosive,’’ and that he had tried to ignite the device or mixture to cause a fire as the airliner was approaching Detroit....
Like a FIRECRACKER!!
A federal counterterrorism official who asked not to be identified said Abdulmutallab was apparently in a government law enforcement-intelligence database, but it is not clear what extremist group or individuals he might be linked to. “It’s too early to say what his association is,’’ the counterterrorism official said. “At this point, it seems like he was acting alone, but we don’t know for sure.’’
WTF is this?!!!
Although Abdulmutallab is said to have told officials that he was directed by Al Qaeda, the counterterrorism official expressed caution about that stance, saying “it may have been aspirational.’’

King, of the Homeland Security committee, said there was no indication at this point that anyone else was involved, but he said officials would look back to see if any intelligence signals were missed. “For a while now we have had real concerns about Al Qaeda or terrorist connections in Nigeria,’’ he said.
But this was the REAL DEAL, fat-f*** Pete said above!!!
And EVER NOTICE "Al-CIA-Duh" ALWAYS SHOWS UP where OIL is UNDER the GROUND?!! How come there is no "Al-CIA-Duh" of BANGLADESH?
I mean, we would NEVER LOOK THERE, right?!!!!
Of the device used yesterday, he said, “It appears to be different from explosive devices that have been used before. That is perhaps why it escaped detection. Maybe that is why it made it through.’’
This is to the point of ABSURDITY, readers, and it is just going to get worse!
Questions have been raised for years about aviation security in Nigeria. Last month, however, the TSA said that standards at the Lagos airport met international criteria for security.
Douglas Laird, former security director for Northwest Airlines, said he has been advocating for years that airports switch from X-rays and metal detectors to full-body scans -- a move that would cost hundreds of millions of dollars more, but one that he insists would help prevent terrorist attempts like the one reported Friday.
"What the article does not mention is that Douglas Laird's CURRENT occupation is SELLING SECURITY SYSTEMS! The fact is that after every one of these incidents, the people who make millions of dollars selling security systems call for more security. Then there will be another incident proving that the millions of dollars already spent were totally wasted on ineffective systems. It is time to admit that security is not secure, and the only path to a terror-free world is to STOP SCREWING AROUND WITH OTHER PEOPLES' COUNTRIES!" -- Wake the Flock Up

An estimated 3,000 Dutch residents suffer health problems as a result of the chemical and radioactive poisoning that occurred when El Al 1862 crashed. Today there is growing awareness in Holland of Israel’s privileged and unregulated use of Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport to transport dangerous military cargo, a practice that clearly puts the health of the Dutch people at risk.

South Africa deported an Israeli airline official last week following allegations that Israel’s secret police, the Shin Bet, had infiltrated Johannesburg international airport in an effort to gather information on South African citizens, particularly black and Muslim travellers.

"The event as detailed by eye witnesses is remakarbly consistent with a known issue with laptop/notebook PCs running on lithium-ion batteries. They are notorious for their incendiary properties. Apparently the perpetrator's thighs were severely burnt.(?) The FAA has not publicly reported any such incidents as yet, but in-flight incidents are known.
So, what if Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab, a student, was using his laptop on the plane when the Lithium Ion battery caught fire? The nearby passengers over-react, the plot declares an emergency and the US media is off and running with an attention-grabbing headline of terror in the skies before it was realized this was purely a computer malfunction!
Remember, the Gulf of Tonkin Incident was started with a mistake by an inexperienced sonar operator who heard his own ship's screws and mistook them for a torpedo. The mistake was known almost immediately, but the media momentum to blame the "attack" on North Vietnam was already underway and there was no internet to force a correction.

"Airlines: New rules keep passengers in seats" by Joan Lowy, Associated Press Writer | December 26, 2009
WASHINGTON --Some airlines were telling passengers on Saturday that new government security regulations prohibit them from leaving their seats beginning an hour before landing....
What if you HAVE TO USE the BATHROOM?!!!!!!
Hey, I'LL LET IT FLY right there if I have to!! I'm not risking health problems for totalitarian liars!!
They won't be allowed access to carryon baggage or to have any items on their laps....
An official [who] was not authorized to speak publicly said passengers traveling internationally could see increased security screening....
The regulations are a response to a suspected terrorism incident on Christmas Day....
Yeah, now it is just "suspected."
The incident has sparked a major international terrorism investigation....
A spokeswoman with Infraero, a Brazilian government agency that oversees airport infrastructure, said that airlines had been asked by federal authorities to add another layer of security for international flights originating in the country after the attempted attack in the U.S.
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because she was not authorized to discuss the matter, said that passengers would face an extra screening that would take place just before they boarded planes. She would give no more details, citing security concerns.
Readers and world, do us ALL a FAVOR and NEVER TAKE an AIRPLANE AGAIN!!!
