"The adult son of a Nevada rancher who hosted armed protesters against federal agents in a cattle roundup dispute in April acknowledged Monday that he faces arrest in a separate criminal case stemming from his felony conviction on burglary and weapon charges.
Cliven Lance Bundy, 34, said during a telephone interview with The Associated Press that he knows he’s named in a contempt-of-court warrant issued July 8 in Las Vegas for failing to appear before a Clark County District Court judge who oversees a drug diversion program.”
Guess the Junior Bundy doesn’t believe in following laws either…
Jesus Christ. He stabbed three more in his apartment and did begin at the sorority. And it could have been so much worse.
I’d say it’s goddamn connected:
"A disturbing video entitled ‘Elliot Rodger’s Retribution’ was posted to YouTube the day before the shooting. In it, a young man who identifies himself as Elliot Rodger describes his plans to launch an assault targeting women at a sorority house as payback for his life of ‘loneliness, rejection, and unfulfilled desires.’
'I will slaughter every stuck up, blonde slut I see inside there … You will finally see that I am in truth the superior one, the true alpha male,' the young man says in the video. He then describes how he plans to 'take to the streets of Isla Vista and slay every single person.'”
The shooter left a YouTube video, which is still up, where he talks of his rejection by women “since puberty” and his desire to punish them for this injustice. He calls himself “a supreme gentlemen” and rants in his BMW about being left a 22-year-old virgin. He talks about how he’s such a nice guy, and that we women throw ourselves at lesser men. And that what happened is the fault of we women — his “revenge against humanity” — because no woman wanted to even date him.
I feel sick. Do not let history be rewritten as him being “crazy” and don’t let the “not all men” crowd hijack this. Yes, most men won’t shoot people because they can’t handle rejection, but HE DID. And his motive is quite clear. This video should be left up as an explanation of the fears we have when a man yells at us and calls us bitches over being friendzoned. When a man follows us outside, after we tell him we’re not interested. When a man makes it clear he is entitled to our bodies. This video is male entitlement at its most terrifying.

A man tried to burn down an underage girl’s house because she refused his sexual advances.
Not all men get violent when rejected, BUT SOME DO. Before this is hijacked by the “not all men” crowd, can we please think about this for a minute? This is the much more extreme version of feeling entitled to a woman’s body in some way. The softer, more sinister version is calling women bitches because they refused a drink you bought.
It’s catcalling — which is more aptly titled “street harassment” — and telling women to smile on command. It’s calling women sluts for having sex with men who are not you. It’s whining about the friendzone — you were SO NICE and just can’t understand why she won’t fuck you. YOU WERE NICE DAMMIT!
It’s following women down the street for ignoring you. It’s stabbing a classmate to death because she doesn’t want to go to prom with you.
And it’s trying to burn down a teenage girl’s house because you think you’re entitled to fuck her whether she likes it or not.
I collaborated with Matthew Cardinale, editor/founder of Atlanta Progressive News, on an exposé of Officer Edward Rabb. Rabb is currently serving as a cop for the Atlanta PD despite a 735+ page disciplinary file containing charges of domestic assault, failure to respond to a call, losing a suspect’s gun, failure to appear in court, a DUI, and a violent sexual assault.

Robert Charles Kelley IV, 18, filmed himself crashing into four vehicles, injuring 5 people, and was arrested this week for leaving the scene of a crash. Police found him after he uploaded video of the incident to YouTube under the title “Me Driving Like an Idiot.”
"California state Sen. Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) — one of the state’s strongest advocates for gun control — was arrested Wednesday on charges that include scheming to defraud citizens of honest services and conspiracy to illegally traffic firearms.
Yee, 65, was seized at his home during a string of raids that capped an FBI public corruption probe. The San Francisco investigation focused on Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow, who federal authorities said is the leader of Chee Kung Tong, or CKT, a social organization involved in what an FBI affidavit calls “criminal enterprise.” FBI agents discovered during the investigation that Yee and his political consultant, Keith Jackson, 49, were involved with Chow and his associates at CKT, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.”
Think about that for a moment. If he had been alone, like Trayvon Martin, Dunn would be a free man. The Dunn murder trial sends the message that if you are going to shoot at young Black men in Florida, you’d better kill them all.
ThinkProgress reports the promoter pulled the plug after the proposed fight generated so much controversy.
As much as Zimmerman deserves to get his ass kicked, he deserves to have it in jail more. This wouldn’t bring back Trayvon Martin, and would only serve to further this murderer’s celebrity more while lining his pockets.
Good. I’m glad it’s canceled.
1. Lock people up in privately-run jails for unreasonable sentences with no rehabilitation — preferably those from minority groups and/or the poor.
2. Release them into a society that won’t hire people with even a non-violent conviction, boosting recidivism.
From today’s AP story announcing charges against four more people in the Steubenville, Ohio rape case and subsequent cover up by school officials.
According to Caitlin MacNeal at TPM, Zimmerman was charged by Florida police today with “aggravated assault with a weapon, battery and criminal mischief after his girlfriend claimed he pointed a long-barreled shotgun at her inside their residence.” Zimmerman was arrested after pushing his girlfriend outside their home and barricading himself inside.
Prosecutors on Friday announced charges against a suburban Detroit homeowner in the death of a 19-year-old woman who was shot in the face on his porch.
Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said that Theodore P. Wafer, 54, of Dearborn Heights faces charges of second-degree murder and manslaughter in the death of Renisha McBride on Nov. 2. She was shot in the face after police say they believe she was involved in a car accident nearby in Detroit and family members say she likely approached Wafer’s home for help.
She said evidence showed McBride knocked on the locked screen door, and that there was no evidence of forced entry.
"These are the appropriate charges and he did not act in lawful self-defense," Worthy said.
