Stunning news, isn't it?
"Videos shed light on Virginia stun-gun case" Associated Press November 13, 2015
RICHMOND — Three police officers repeatedly used stun guns on a black man they brought to a Virginia hospital for a mental health evaluation, and the man later died in their custody, according to recently released videos in the 2013 case.
The videos, first obtained by MSNBC, show the officers shocking Linwood R. Lambert Jr. multiple times after he kicked out a police cruiser’s back window and ran to the doors of an emergency room while he was handcuffed.
Instead of taking him inside the ER, officers took Lambert to jail, saying he was arrested for disorderly conduct and property damage.
Upon his arrival at the jail, the 46-year-old was unresponsive. An ambulance brought him back to the same ER and he was pronounced dead at the hospital, about an hour after he was taken into custody.
Lambert’s family filed a $25 million lawsuit in April, accusing the officers of unlawfully arresting him and using ‘‘excessive, unreasonable, and deadly force.’’
The officers rejected those allegations, saying that the stun gun was ‘‘an appropriate and necessary use of force alternative to more harmful and lethal options available.’’
The Virginia State Police investigated at the request of the police chief of South Boston, a town of about 8,000 people in southern Virginia near the North Carolina border. A State Police spokeswoman declined to release the results of the investigation, which were turned over to the county’s prosecutor for review in October 2013.
No charges have been filed. An attorney for Lambert said the three officers were not disciplined and they have all since been promoted.
The police department, officers’ attorney, and county prosecutor did not immediately respond to a request for comment Thursday.
Lambert’s sister, Gwendolyn Smalls, said the officers should face charges.
‘‘Now that he’s not here, I have to defend him,’’ she said of her brother, ‘‘and make sure that we can get the justice that we are asking and that he so justly deserves.’’
South Boston Police Department’s guidelines say officers may use stun guns in defense or to ‘‘temporarily immobilize’’ a subject. Their use is no longer justified once that person has been restrained or is under control, according to a copy of the department’s guidelines as of May 2013.

"Two said to target churches, synagogues" Associated Press November 13, 2015
RICHMOND — Two Virginia men accused of trying to buy guns and explosives to use in attacks on synagogues and black churches are too dangerous to release while they await trial, a judge ruled Thursday.
US Magistrate Roderick Young denied bond for Robert C. Doyle, 34, and Ronald Beasley Chaney III, 33, citing the government’s contention that they ‘‘wanted to firebomb places of worship.’’
An affidavit filed by FBI agent James R. Rudisill to support the criminal complaint says Doyle and Chaney are white supremacists who tried to buy an automatic weapon, explosives, and a pistol with a silencer from three undercover agents posing as gun dealers.
I smell a SET UP!
Chaney was arrested Sunday after he handed the agents an undisclosed amount of cash for the weapons. Doyle, who was being electronically tracked by authorities, was arrested nearby.
Charles D. Halderman, an associate of the two men, is charged with conspiring to rob a Richmond-area jeweler to raise money that the men would use to buy land, stockpile weapons, and train for a race war.
Anything but the long overdue response from the masses at the decades of cla$$ warfare being waged on them by the, for lack of a better term, the power elite.
The affidavit says the FBI learned that Doyle planned to host a meeting at his home in late September to discuss ‘‘shooting or bombing the occupants of black churches and Jewish synagogues, conducting acts of violence against persons of Jewish faith, and doing harm to a gun store owner in the state of Oklahoma.’’
FBI surveillance determined that the meeting took place as scheduled. But Chaney’s lawyer, Elliot Bender, said in court Thursday that there was no evidence anyone talked about a criminal plot at that Sunday gathering.
Since when has the FBI or the American JU$TUS $y$tem needed evidence?
Looks like another FBI fabrication to me.

"US, Britain, and France train fighter pilots in Va." Washington Post December 18, 2015
JOINT BASE LANGLEY-EUSTIS, Va. — The rumble started early Tuesday, as one fighter jet after another ascended from a runway near the Atlantic Ocean. The mission: Prepare for war against potential adversaries like Russia, which is now patrolling the same skies as the United States over Syria and flexing its muscles in Eastern Europe.
It's good to know where we are heading going into the New Year, isn't it?
The first Trilateral Exercise, involving the United States, France and Britain, has been in planning for several years, but began Dec. 2 over coastal Virginia with a real-world feel. The USAir Force’s F-22 Raptor, the British Royal Air Force Typhoon, and the French air force’s Dassault Rafale have flown dozens of missions each day since the operation started.
Air Force F-15E Strike Eagles and T-38 Talons are flying against them as so-called ‘‘Red Air,’’ providing an adversary for training. Tanker planes and an E-3 Sentry, a command-and-control plane commonly known as the AWACS (Airborne Warning and Control System), provide support.
It marks the first time the Raptor, Typhoon and Dassault Rafale — all of which have flown combat sorties over the Middle East this year — have trained together with such a large number of aircraft and troops, senior Air Force officials said. The exercise, which concludes Friday, is focused heavily on making sure the different aircraft operate well together.
Once the roar of the planes subsided this is what I heard:
"Outrage follows Islamic lesson" by Steve Szkotak Associated Press December 19, 2015
STAUNTON, Va. — A rural Virginia school district canceled classes and a holiday concert after being flooded with angry messages over a school calligraphy lesson that involved copying a Muslim statement of faith in Arabic.
Some of the tens of thousands of e-mails and Facebook posts ‘‘posed a risk of harm to school officials’’ and threatened protests, Superintendent Eric Bond said in a message to parents and employees on Friday.
Augusta County Sheriff Randall D. Fisher said security has been assigned to the superintendent, the teacher who created the lesson, and the school’s principal. The teacher, Cheryl LaPorte, is worried about herself and her family, Fisher said.
Anger over the lesson has escalated since LaPorte, a teacher at Riverheads High School, gave students an assignment that involved practicing calligraphy and writing a statement in Arabic — the Shahada, a profession of faith recited in Muslims’ daily prayers. It is omnipresent in religious imagery, often appearing on the walls of mosques and in religious art, but also on the flags of groups such as the Islamic State.
The statement translated to: ‘‘There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.’’ The teacher’s lesson was drawn from instructional material that also includes Judeo-Christian assignments.
At a forum Tuesday, one parent said the assignment promoted a false religious doctrine, while other parents expressed outrage. Some demanded the teacher be fired.
Kimberly Herndon, who organized that event, said she may take the issue to court, The News Leader newspaper reported.
‘‘She gave up the Lord’s time,’’ Herndon said of LaPorte on Tuesday, according to the newspaper. ‘‘She gave it up and gave it to Muhammad.’’
The stunning realization here is that the American public has had their minds soaked in so much Zionist war propaganda they have become nothing but hateful idiots.
LaPorte declined comment. A Facebook group supporting LaPorte had more than 2,000 members on Friday. Many commenters defended LaPorte and the school district.
‘‘I think people are making a big deal about it for no reason at all,’’ said 18-year-old Hannah Carey, a former student of LaPorte who lives in Waynesboro. ‘‘We learned about all different cultures, and she was a great teacher.’’
No, there is a reason. It's to keep the endless narrative of being at war with Muslims, fear the terrorists in our midst, blah, blah, blah. Went through all this in the 1950s. Called them communists back then.
School officials said the aim of the lesson was to illustrate the complexity of the written Arabic language, not to promote any religious system.
‘‘Although students will continue to learn about world religions as required by the state Board of Education and the Commonwealth’s Standards of Learning, a different, non-religious sample of Arabic calligraphy will be used in the future,’’ Doug Shifflett, Augusta County’s assistant superintendent for administration, said in a statement.
Virginia’s Standards of Learning suggest students learn about Islamic art, architecture, and calligraphy, and create an arabesque design or drawing during their study of the cultural characteristics of the Middle East, Michelle Stoll, a spokeswoman for the state’s Department of Education, said in a statement. But the guidelines don’t recommend that the students copy a particular teaching or verse, Stoll said.
Virginia starting to look like Somalia, isn't it?
They still sent Christmas greetings, though.
