NRA Member Who Lost Sister To Gun Violence Tearfully Asks Senate To Protect Women

Posted: 07/30/2014 12:29 pm EDT Updated: 3 hours ago

WASHINGTON — Elvin Daniel, 56, is a card-carrying member of the National Rifle Association, an avid hunter and a self-described “constitutional conservative” from a small town in Illinois. He became an unlikely witness for the Democrats on Wednesday at the first-ever Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on gun violence against women.

Daniel choked back tears at the hearing as he recounted the story of his sister, Zina, who was shot and killed by her estranged ex-husband in 2012. After her ex slashed her tires and physically threatened her, Zina had obtained a restraining order against him, which should have prohibited him under federal law from buying a gun. But he was able to purchase a gun online, where private sellers are not required to conduct background checks.

“He posted an ad saying, ‘Serious buyer looking to buy a gun ASAP,'” Elvin said. “Within an hour, he found an unlicensed seller, and they met at a McDonald’s parking lot.”

THis is why I think mixing of the races does not work out. This man was a marine and crazy as hell. (see below)

Zina’s husband then murdered her and injured four other people before shooting himself.

“Now I’m helping to care for my two nieces who lost their mother and who will have to grow up without her,” Daniel told the committee. “I’m here today for Zina and for the stories like Zina’s that happen every day because of the serious gap in our gun laws that continue to put women’s lives in danger.”

American women account for 84 percent of all female gun victims in the developed world, and more than a quarter of female homicide victims in the U.S. are killed by an intimate partner.

The two bills being considered in the Senate, introduced by Sens. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), would strengthen federal gun prohibitions for convicted domestic abusers and those deemed by a judge to be a physical threat to a woman. Klobuchar’s bill would include physically abusive dating partners and convicted stalkers in the category of persons who are prohibited from buying or possessing a gun. Blumenthal’s bill would ban guns for those who have been issued a temporary restraining order by a judge for domestic violence.

All the provisions being discussed are supported by a majority of Americans, according to a recent HuffPost/YouGov poll. But gun limits are difficult for Congress to pass, even when they are broadly supported by voters, due to the strong opposition of the well-funded and well-organized gun rights lobby. A popular bill that would have closed gaping holes in the federal background checks system fell just short last year of the 60 votes it needed to overcome a Republican filibuster.

The NRA is already fighting Klobuchar’s bill, claiming that it “manipulates emotionally compelling issues such as ‘domestic violence’ and ‘stalking’ simply to cast as wide a net as possible for federal firearm prohibitions.”

The witness for the Republicans, George Mason University law professor Joyce Malcolm, said Democrats are taking the wrong approach to protecting women. She said it would be a better idea to immediately arm women who have filed restraining orders instead of trying keep guns away from the abuser.

“I’ll tell you a reality — the police cannot be everywhere at all times,” she said.

Gun violence prevention groups have calculated that domestic violence is one area in which American voters across the political spectrum — particularly women — can agree on gun limits. Americans for Responsible Solutions, started by former Congresswoman and gun violence survivor Gabby Giffords (D-Ariz.), and Everytown for Gun Safety, funded by former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, are working to convince a few Senators who were on the fence about background checks to swing over and support gun prohibitions for domestic abusers.

But Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), the ranking member on the Senate Judiciary Committee, quickly dismissed the idea of Republicans working with Democrats on the issue, saying the hearing is a political stunt. He said Klobuchar introduced her bill a year ago, but the Democrats waited until just before August recess — and only a few months before November elections — to schedule the hearing.

“Had the majority been serious about reducing domestic violence, we had the time to come together on a bipartisan solution,” Grassley said. “There was a real opportunity for a bipartisan effort, but that opportunity, I believe, has been squandered.”

Klobuchar shook her head and appeared visibly frustrated as Grassley spoke. The reason the committee waited so long to hold the hearing, she fired back, is that she has been trying and failing to get a Republican co-sponsor on her bill.

“I’ve been very close several times,” she said. “I know I’m going to get [one]. But that’s the reason we’ve been waiting.”

Daniel told The Huffington Post that he hoped his testimony would break through the partisan politics and garner support for legislation that prevents dangerous people from being able to have guns.

“If we can save just one life, that would be worth everything we’re going through,” he said. “And I know we can save more than one life.”

==========================================================

THIS NRA POS should rot in hell. It’s okay when other people suffer but ZINA gets knocked off and his whole world stops. He should be shot. No pun intended.

=========================================

this is the incident of her death – she owned a spa salon and her ex showed up one day and bam!

Wisconsin Spa Shooting: Radcliffe Haughton’s Estranged Wife Told the Court She Feared Her Husband

The woman allegedly killed by her estranged husband in a Wisconsin spa told a court three days before the shooting that he threatened her for years and she feared he would eventually kill her if they didn’t separate.

Zina Haughton, 42, detailed the breakdown of her marriage to Radcliffe Haughton in her testimony at a Milwaukee County Courthouse Thursday during a restraining order hearing.

Haughton allegedly opened fire at the Azana Salon & Spa in Brookfield, Wis., Sunday, shooting seven women and killing three.

“Things have gotten so bad, Rad[cliffe]. I just — we need to separate. We need a course before you hurt me. Even if it’s an accident…I don’t want to die. I just don’t want to die,” Zina Haughton said in courtroom audio obtained by ABC News affiliate WISN.

Radcliffe Haughton blamed his wife for the marital problems, accusing her of infidelity.

“For 20 years, we’ve fought. He’s hit me. He thinks I cheated on him, just the threats have gotten so bad, and like I said, I don’t want to die,” Zina Haughton said.

“The scariest night of my life — he ran in the basement, and he came upstairs, and he pulled a gun from behind his pants, and it accidentally went off in between me and my daughter’s head, about two inches from both of our heads,” Haughton testified.

Police were called to the spa several weeks before the shooting because Haughton allegedly slashed the tires of his wife’s car. He was arrested and charged for the incident, and later ordered to turn over all guns in his possession to the sheriff’s department.

A judge granted Zina Haughton’s request and issued a four-year restraining order following the hearing.

Two days later, Radcliffe Haughton reportedly purchased a new gun and then stormed into his wife’s salon Sunday and allegedly opened fire killing his wife and two other women before turning the gun on himself.

Betty Brunner was about to have her hair done by Zina Haughton when her husband barged into the spa. Haughton pleaded with her husband to spare others, according to Brunner.

“She was trying to calm him down. She was de-escalating him. I think she felt responsible for the whole salon,” Brunner said. “I think she wanted to protect all of us.”

Radcliffe Haughton, a former Marine, wasn’t swayed and that’s when gunfire erupted shortly after 11 a.m. local time.

“It was riveting. It was just pop, pop, pop. It just never stopped,” Brunner said.

About 17 minutes later, the SWAT team surrounded the spa with their guns draw, preparing for a battle. Customers — some still in robes, others barefoot — ran out of the spa in a panic, and that’s when the SWAT team rescued Brunner.

“I believe there’s a reason why I’m here. One of the reasons is to let the world know how brave Zina was. She’s responsible for saving a lot of lives. Zina, if you can hear me, thank you, thank you,” Brunner said.

After a tense six-hour manhunt, authorities found Haughton’s body in a locked section of the spa, where he had apparently shot himself, Brookfield Police Chief Daniel Tushaus said.

Aside from Zina Haughton, the deceased victims were identified Monday as Cary L. Robuck, 35, of Racine; and Maelyn M. Lind, 38, of Oconomowoc.

Four injured women, ranging in age from 22 to 40, were taken to Froedert Hospital. One victim was released from the hospital Monday, while the other three women remained in satisfactory condition, according to Kathy Sieja, hospital spokeswoman.

 

Where does a soul go after the person commits suicide?

I am of the belief that the person’s angst and anguish remains in the place they died

In this case, RUSTY  passed away by  his own hand on July 20 at 9:10am after speaking to friends from high school for a reunion they were planning? He had spoken to his neighbor Mike the night before telling him “I hope she comes back to me” and then….the next morning he’s on facebook talking and then…

He hung himself and was discovered 2 hours later by his wife who had broken up with him taking their son out of the house.

The woman, I refer to her as ‘THE BITCH, is 34 years old and dating other guys on line. AKA she’s cheating but he released her from any obligation that morning when he committed suicide.

I think Rusty never grew up; he was very immature and never thought things through; he has a son with the bitch and didn’t once think about that kid?

It’s hard to believe that this happy go lucky guy could do such a thing but he did do it. I know because now he’s in our house.

Well his soul is; and he’s welcomed to stay but the bitch and her family buried him on Friday 7/25 and has been back at the house the day after collecting her “stuff” so they can prepare to empty the house and

WAIT FOR IT

SELL IT!

I intend to tell any realtor that takes on this project that this house needs to be SAGED.

The bitch was supposed to pay her rich father back but never did and Rusty couldn’t do it – he was too busy worshiping the ground she walked on – and that bitch had gained a lot of weight the last year so the ground she walked upon left a tell tale path after she walked upon it.

He had discovered that she was dating men on the internet as a “single” woman. He had put a tracer on her car and on her phone and had his heart broken into a million tiny pieces with the information he retrieved during that six month period.

Let me tell ya something – He & I had a falling out a year ago over the bitch using my partner who was taking their crazy kid to school every morning. The bitch couldn’t be bothered to take her own kid to school and on that day I went out of my mind, my partner had a fever and was sick. whenever we hang around kids one or both of us gets sick. Kids are like flies, they carry diseases and should be shot on sight. I am NOT sorry for my attitude. I don’t like kids. I called up Rusty and told him to forget about Myqui taking his kid to school. The other problem was in the past Rusty would take me to the train station for work so we had money coming into the house. At this time I was unfortunately out of work and asked the bitch and Rusty to give us gas money to take the kid to school; frankly no one understood why he didn’t get on the bus or walk to school but that’s another story.

So every week it was the bitch telling Myqui she hasn’t gotten paid and she can’t give us the money? This woman is rich – she didn’t have to pay for a mortgage or prop taxes and Rusty paid for everything else and she couldn’t give us money on time. Fucking cunt.

1 million texts later and me telling Rusty that “your bitch wife is going to cheat on you and you’re going to find out and then what are you going to do?” Mind you this was a year before he committed suicide. I know her type of woman – sleazy, rich bitch living with the guy from across the tracks whom she can take advantage of and then throw away but Rusty hung in there until he couldn’t hang in anymore.

Hey bitch – your son always brought over his pop tarts with Nutella on them and then ditched them in our car or in our trash. Why didn’t you feed him some good breakfast food? Why? Because besides being  a fucking cunt bitch whore you are a terrible mother. The kid used to tell my partner that he would NEVER take drugs (because his parents did) and he would only take the drugs his doctor prescribed to him? What 8 year old do you know that says that?

SONY DSCimages

Above is POP TARTS & Nutella which the bitch used to drizzle on his pop tarts. I couldn’t believe she’d do such a thing considering her father is a doctor? Made me sick to look at them. The kid was always a nervous wreck around his mother. With his father it was always fun and games. They were the best of pals and they played video games together.

Rusty just couldn’t keep the bitch happy. All he wanted was her love and she stopped giving that when he got into trouble with the cops last year. She had to retrieve her kid from another country and her nose was pushed outta shape about that.

Rusty died trying but he didn’t have to die. He could have lived on and tortured her to death by remaining alive and being a constant reminder to the bitch that life just doesn’t always go your way. He could have been there for his son when he became a teen ager, he could have been there for his friends and his sisters and the rest of the world of people who loved him.

But he chose to die and after that moment passed – he regretted it. And when I tell you how much he regretted doing that – it will make you cry. Our house was pandaemonium since Rusty passed away. Yelling in the house, the atmosphere was frantic, jumpy, scared. I had to sage outside and inside 4 times. Whatever angst he left behind was dynamite and sad. He was completely gutted over his love that was not being reciprocated and he couldn’t deal with it. She had given him an ultimatum to get out of that house they shared because she was leaving him.

Trust me. I cried my eyes out thinking about him hanging there in her house all alone swaying back and forth until she returned to see what he had done. Sure she cried for about 5 minutes and then – she packed some shit for the evening and flew the coop.

Today my partner told me that our new sofa had come – yay but that the bitch was back in the house packing again as she has been since his cold dead body went into the ground on Friday. She was there packing for hours and then someone else joined her to help. She and her rich dad will be putting the house on the market soon but they won’t be able to sell that house. She did nothing to enhance that house in 7 years they lived there. Rusty was out of work for 2 of those 7 years and he kept a tidy house but when she came home from school; she didn’t do shit but stick pop down her throat as she licked the bong. She even forced him to go out on the coldest of nights so she could get her fix. I couldn’t believe this woman.

So I thought, wouldn’t it be hilarious if my partner went out there and smiled at her, raised her hand and yelled “How U doing, Rusty?” That might scare the bitch so bad that she’d fall down her own front steps and die from a twisted neck and it was Rusty’s perfect opportunity to have her all to himself for eternity….

but nothing like this fantasy ever happened

And the reason for that is

Because Rusty is a descent guy who loved her and still loves her even in his death but he has be anchored to the area and I believe that even though he can see his son and watch over him; that some kind of penance has to be paid for what he did in disturbing his own time line.

His death and his problems went with him and I’m sorry to say he is still not out of the pain he left with but it is abating and I believe he will be there for his son. Watching over him but I will say this about the bitch.

In 2 years, she will meet the man of her nightmares who is going to take her life and at the end of that life she will remember the guy whom she kicked to the curb as he waits for her in her own death. Her last thoughts will be “Oh how I wish this man were Rusty!”

Every bitch has her day and Karma never takes a holiday.

Pregnant Woman Allegedly Put In Chokehold By NYPD Officer

Posted: 07/28/2014 6:54 pm EDT Updated: 3 hours ago

A New York City police officer allegedly placed a 27-year-old pregnant woman in a chokehold Saturday after she was accused of illegally grilling in East New York, Brooklyn. The incident was captured on camera.

Photos first published by the New York Daily News appear to show an unidentified member of the New York City Police Department wrapping his arms around Rosan Miller’s neck and upper torso as her daughter watches nearby. Miller was uninjured but was given a summons for disorderly conduct, the outlet reported.

Advocacy group People Organizing and Working for Empowerment and Respect released images of the incident Monday to the Daily News.

“She was grilling in front of her home, not committing any crime,” former City Councilman Charles Barron told The New York Post of the incident. “We want these people out of our community.”

Use of the chokehold by New York police officers has been banned for more than 20 years, according to Reuters. Yet the outlet reports that the department has a “backlog” of chokehold complaints currently under investigation.

The latest chokehold incident comes just over a week after Staten Island man Eric Garner died while being placed in a chokehold by a member of the NYPD. At the time, Garner was being arrested on charges stemming from illegal cigarette sales. A bystander captured the incident on video.

After a meeting with Garner’s family and federal prosecutors in Brooklyn on Friday, activist Rev. Al Sharpton called for an end to the use of the chokehold nationwide.

“We cannot just depend — and this is important — on police policy to stop the choke hold,” Sharpton said, per Reuters. “We need a federal precedent.”

======================================================

An NYPD cop puts his arm around Rosan Miller's neck in an apparent chokehold, which is prohibited by the department.

Rosan Miller struggles against the cop over the weekend in Brooklyn.

Former city councilman Charles Barron points out the woman's daughter can be seen watching her mother's arrest.

Rosan Miller (above), her husband Moses Miller and brother John Miller were all arrested.

AND NOT ALL BLACK MEN ABUSE THEIR WIVES

BUT WHEN THEY DO

THEY ARE LOW DOWN NIGGER SHIT IN MY BOOK

AND ANY OTHER MAN OF ANY OTHER COLOR

Goldberg is a hypocrite – if she’s so black why does she always run after the white guys?

She couldn’t get a man with perfect vision if she tried. And I know that if Rosie O’Donnell were on that show

The day she said this shit – they’d be a fucking fight.

The Strain: A Haunting Glimpse of the Vampire Race

Original | Shawn S. Lealos, Originals

Published July 28, 2014 02:01AM EDT

Last week’s episode of The Strain was a bit of a let down but things got rolling again on Sunday night. FX’s vampire series exploded off the blocks with the CDC team getting an up-close look at the scary phenomenon they are facing and viewers learned a lot more about vampire Thomas Eichorst (Richard Sammel).

The Strain starring Corey Stoll, Sean Astin and Mia Maestro airs on FX Sundays at 10 pm ET.

The Charade

The episode began with a vampire literally putting on his face. The vampire looked a lot like Lord Voldemort from the Harry Potter movies, a white smooth face missing the nose and ears. The man behind the mask turned out to be Thomas Eichorst and the scene displayed how he is able to look human while the others disintegrate and change into vampires. He then admitted that his charade will soon end. This was a great way to open the show and did a lot to explain the world of the vampires that will soon start to form.

The Survivors Continue to Change

Sunday night’s episode focused heavily on the survivors from the plane. While Captain Redfern (Jonathan Potts) remains in the hospital under observation, the other survivors started to see their lives fall apart. Missing in action this week was the lawyer Joan (Leslie Hope), but returning after not showing up last week was the fourth survivor Ansel (Nikolai Witschl), who is visibly sick and scared his with to death when he guzzled steak blood. Although that sounds creepy, it was the Goth rocker Gabriel Bolivar (Jack Kesy) who won the creepiest moment in this episode. Last week he bit a groupie during an orgy, and this week made certain he would never participate in an orgy again when he lost his manliest tool. It seems that vampires don’t only grow teeth, lose their hair and have blood-red eyes; they’re asexual too. This was a hugely shocking moment. (all they do is feed~!)

Beat that Marilyn Manson!!!

Jim Kent’s Two Bosses

In the premiere episode of The Strain, Jim Kent (Sean Astin) betrayed his team – and the human race – when he let the truck transporting a coffin pass through the security checkpoint. This week, The Strain showed why, as Jim’s wife Sylvia (Melanie Merkosky) has cancer and he betrayed his team for money to help her. Of course, he didn’t know what he was unleashing, so he can be forgiven. Unfortunately, his moral conflict is far from over. When he threatened to go to the police about the incident, Eichorst gave Jim great news, informing him that he could get Sylvia into an experimental drug program that could cure her cancer. As a result, Jim learned he now has two bosses, Eichorst being the second and the CDC being the first. Of course, he doesn’t know Eichorst is a vampire, so maybe his wife may not be going to the best place for her cure.

The Rats Are Scared

The exterminator Vasiliy Fet (Kevin Durand) was back this week and he got a huge clue as to the coming danger. The city is experiencing a rat infestation and the rats are attacking homes, schools and hospitals. Fet was sent to a large house to exterminate a rat that bit a little girl. After finishing the job, Fet stepped out the door and saw dozens of rats heading towards water, scurrying from tunnels and drainage ditches. It seems that Vasiliy Fet will become a very important part of The Strain’s storyline this season.

The Battle Begins

Abraham Setrakian (David Bradley) convinced a judge to release him by acting like a feeble old man. He left the courthouse and Nora (Mia Maestro) stopped him to ask for help. They had a chat and he realized that she was not willing to accept burning all the dead bodies. He told her she was not worth his time. Next we saw that Abraham had gotten ahold of a list of dead passengers’ addresses and it looks as if he’s off to exterminate the dead. Meanwhile, the one plane survivor who did the right thing after the plane incident, pilot Doyle (Jonathan Potts), escaped from his hospital room and headed to the basement and started to eat. In true horror fashion, this once-good man turned pure evil in an instant and attacked Jim Nora and Eph (Corey Stoll). Doyle is the first survivor to turn full-fledged vampire. The episode fades to black as Doyle’s head is smashed by a fire extinguisher-wielding Eph.

With that death, the war is officially on. Now, the question has to be how Eph and his team explain murdering the pilot. There is also the question of the rats, the loss of the rocker’s penis, Jim Kent’s morality, and the murders that Abraham has planned. There are a lot more questions than answers at this point, but The Strain has perfected the art of freaking out its audience.

#ESPN’S STEPHEN A SMITH SAID WHAT?

ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith Says Women Should Be Careful Not to Provoke Domestic Violence, Then Mansplains How Women Missed His Point

YUP

THAT IS WHAT THIS BLACK BOY SAID ON  AIR

HE’S A CREEP

HE’S SAID OTHER THINGS ON AIR IN THE PAST

AND WAS FORCED TO APOLOGIZE FOR IT

IF IT WASN’T SO SAD IT WOULD BE HILARIOUS!

======================================

OF course black women are quick to forgive his ‘WORD SALAD” – not my invention but I love it just the same – it describes so much in two words – but I don’t and other women do not.

Woman are asking for his firing; men are still listening to his “sports analysis” on ESPN-2 and the rest of us are wondering what would happen if SMITH were a white man?

Yeah he would have been sacked already.

Black men in the news skate like Gold Medalists.

White guys go to jail

But then why are 4 out of 5 black men of all ages in jails in America?

Because they hit  their women and abuse their kids

And afterwards – these women forgive them and go back to them for a most certain violent future

And these kids grow up only to be housed like Daddy in the BIG HOUSE.

PLEASE

IF YOU’RE GOING TO RANT AT ME

THAT I’M WRONG

SAVE IT FOR SOMEONE WHO GIVES A SHIT WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT.

THAT PERSON

AIN’T ME

NEXT STOP

PERHAPS MINORITY MEN SHOULD GO TO JAIL FIRST  – LET US CALL ‘JAIL’ THEIR PREP SCHOOL – WE KICK THE SHIT OUT OF THEM, THEY LEARN ABOUT LIFE AND WE RELEASE THEM TO BECOME MODEL CITIZENS OF THE WORLD EVENTUALLY

IF NOT

NO 2ND CHANCES

AS FOR STEPHEN A SMITH

FIRE HIS BLACK ASS.

HE DOESN’T DESERVE TO BE IN A JOB.

============================================

 

black women have to STOP allowing Black MEN to beat up on them and their kids.

Stand strong against Abusers – it is NOT YOUR FAULT YOUR MAN IS AN ASSHOLE

For knocking his then-fiancée unconscious at an Atlantic City casino and then dragging her limp body from the elevator, all of it caught on surveillance video, Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice was suspended just two games by the NFL. If that alone doesn’t blur your eyes with rage, try the reaction of ESPN analyst Stephen A. Smith, who on First Take this morning said to the women of the world, “let’s make sure we don’t do anything to provoke wrong actions … I think that just talking about what guys shouldn’t do, we got to also make sure that you can do your part to do whatever you can do to make, to try to make sure it doesn’t happen.”

And if that sounds like victim-blaming, Stephen A. Smith would like you to know, ladies, that you just don’t understand him. “Enough is enough,” he wrote after a few hours of internet backlash against his comments. “I simply asked: now what about the other side … what about addressing women on how they can help prevent the obvious wrong being done upon them?”

Here’s the rest of the monologue, via Deadspin, including the part about the “elements of provocation” (emphasis ours):

It’s not about him, then. It’s about you, and here’s what I mean by that. We keep talking about the guys. We know you have no business putting your hands on a woman. I don’t know how many times I got to reiterate that. […] But what I’ve tried to employ the female members of my family, some of who you all met and talked to and what have you, is that again, and this what, I’ve done this all my life, let’s make sure we don’t do anything to provoke wrong actions, because if I come, or somebody else come, whether it’s law enforcement officials, your brother or the fellas that you know, if we come after somebody has put their hands on you, it doesn’t negate the fact that they already put their hands on you. So let’s try to make sure that we can do our part in making sure that that doesn’t happen. Now you got some dudes that are just horrible and they’re going to do it anyway, and there’s never an excuse to put your hands on a woman. But domestic violence or whatever the case may be, with men putting their hands on women, is obviously a very real, real issue in our society. And I think that just talking about what guys shouldn’t do, we got to also make sure that you can do your part to do whatever you can do to make, to try to make sure it doesn’t happen. We know they’re wrong. We know they’re criminals. We know they probably deserve to be in jail. In Ray Rice’s case, he probably deserves more than a 2-game suspension which we both acknowledged. But at the same time, we also have to make sure that we learn as much as we can about elements of provocation. Not that there’s real provocation, but the elements of provocation, you got to make sure that you address them, because we’ve got to do is do what we can to try to prevent the situation from happening in any way. And I don’t think that’s broached enough, is all I’m saying. No point of blame.

“No point of blame,” he says in closing, after offering the opposite. Smith’s ESPN colleague Michelle Beadle, of SportsNation, responded eloquently on Twitter:

So I was just forced to watch this morning’s First Take. A) I’ll never feel clean again B) I’m now aware that I can provoke my own beating.

I’m thinking about wearing a miniskirt this weekend…I’d hate to think what I’d be asking for by doing so @stephenasmith.

I was in an abusive relationship once. I’m aware that men & women can both be the abuser. To spread a message that we not ‘provoke’ is wrong

In a week in which LGBT & domestic abuse issues have been primarily discussed in one-sided formats, I stand by my words.

Which only led Smith to dig himself deeper in a string of tweets that provided no clarification:

Upon hearing what I had to say, although admitting I could’ve been more articulate on the matter, let me be clear: I don’t understand how on earth someone could interpret that I somehow was saying women are to blame for domestic violence. And when I saw ‪@MichelleDBeadle — a colleague I have profound respect for — tweet what she tweeted, enough is enough. Something needs to be said right now. REPEATEDLY i said: There is absolutely no excuse to put your hands on a women. REPEATEDLY, I said dudes who do that need to be dealt with. REPEATEDLY, I echoed when confronted by it in the past — when someone was stupid enough to touch a loved one of this man, raised by 4 older sisters, a mom and numerous female relatives and loved ones, that man was dealt with. From that point, I simply asked: now what about the other side. If a man is pathetic and stupid enough to put his hands on a woman — which I have NEVER DONE, btw — of course he needs to pay the price. Who on earth is denying that? But what about addressing women on how they can help prevent the obvious wrong being done upon them? In no way was I accusing a women of being wrong. I was simply saying what that preventive measures always need to be addressed because there’s only but so much that can be done after the fact….once the damage is already done. Nothing more.My apologies to ‪@MichelleDBeadle And any woman out there who misconstrued what I said. I have always — and will always — find violence against a women every bit as horrific as women, themselves, find it. Always have. Always will, which my personal behavior exemplifies. I’ll strive to be more articulate in the future. But be clear, I wasn’t BLAMING women for anything. I was simply saying to take all things into consideration for preventative purposes. Period.

(In a second statement, Smith added, “I do NOT believe a woman provokes the horrible domestic abuses that are sadly such a major problem in our society. I wasn’t trying to say that or even imply it when I was discussing my own personal upbringing and the important role the women in my family have played in my life. I understand why my comments could be taken another way.” The rest is here.)

.@stephenasmith No one misconstruing your words;”how can women prevent” is WRONG conversation. Try again. Hint: Start with “How can men…”

Of course the problem goes far beyond Smith and ESPN, which has not commented on the segment or said whether Smith will face any disciplinary action. But for NFL fans at least, Smith’s ignorance, stated so forcefully, makes him a prime (and at least somewhat deserving) target of all of the frustration that has been building with regard to the terrible handling of the ugly Rice incident on all sides, not to mention the hideous ways society at large treats abused women. When Rice appeared at a press conference with his victim, who is now his wife, he apologized to his team, but never to her. “Sometimes in life, you will get knocked down,” he said. She apologized as well, a fact the official Ravens Twitter account was sure to note:

Janay Rice says she deeply regrets the role that she played the night of the incident.

Smith, in other words, did not come to these ideas on his own.

 

================================================================

Leave it to Stephen A. Smith, who NBC Dallas aptly points out is best known for shouting at people on television, to make the Cowboys look more sympathetic. He had this to say in January 2012:

“This dude [Romo) didn’t get it done. So when I sit here and listen to somebody like Brett Favre opening his mouth talking about Tony Romo like he’s a victim, what are you talking about? He had DeMarco Murray, he had Dez Bryant, he had Miles Austin even though he got hurt, you always had Jason Witten. … You’re playing in a billion-dollar playpen and you’re talking about this dude as a victim?”

The fact that all of the players he mentioned, aside from Jason Witten, missed significant time with injury that season are the kind of insignificant details Stephen A. has never been fond of. He continued:

“I’m saying [Favre] has a lot of nerve and a lot of gall saying what he said. The victim in Dallas is Mr. Jerry Jones, an owner that puts his money where his mouth is and has given Tony Romo the weapons to produce, and he hasn’t gotten there.”

So in one breath he’s mockingly referring to the cost of Cowboys Stadium and in the next he’s bemoaning poor victimized billionaire Jerry Jones. So Brett Favre has no business expressing his opinion publicly about quarterbacks in the NFL and GM Jerry Jones, who has said himself he’s responsible for everything the Cowboys do, is the victim.

Okay. Gotcha.

=================================================================

In February 2012, the NY Daily News reported on an interesting couple of segments on Stephen A. Smith’s New York radio show on ESPN. Screamed the loud one:

“I report stuff weeks in advance and get vilified for it. But when it comes to fruition, no one remembers they vilified me…I won’t tell you anything. I have nothing to prove. If you don’t like it, don’t watch me [on ESPN]. I don’t have to do it [break stories]. I have a radio show, a TV show and a column. I don’t need to do that.”

Talk radio in any form isn’t generally known as a bastion of sanity and respect, but reacting to a caller chiding him about one of the manyNBA rumors he has reported that turned out to be wrong, by exploding into a psychotic fit of rage—a little ridiculous, to say the least.

He basically threatened his audience and told them not to listen to his show. Lovely. Surely the network executives all loved that.

Later in the show his sidekick Ryan Ruocco mentioned comedian Jay Pharoah’s impression of Stephen A. on Saturday Night Live and here’s how he responded:

“As long as it’s funny, I’m honored. You know what annoys me is when guys take themselves too seriously.”

Hmm. Something tells me irony is lost on Stephen A.

=============================================================

As was widely reported in the sports media, Stephen A. Smith lost his marbles when he mistook a fictional article about him on The Onion as non-fiction in September 2012. The article was entitled “Stephen A. Smith Thinking Son Is Finally Ready For The Sex Argument,” and he responded (hilariously) via Twitter:

“I thought I’d heard enough despicable lies about myself. Now there’s some article out that I have a 9-yr-old son and I’m going to have a … Conversation with him about Sex. Mind you, I neither have a son nor a 9-Year-old. Some ppl are beyond despicable. No end! Sad what extent … People will go to. Amazing how folks try to tear cats down, primarily due to perceived power of the spoken word. Damn Shame, but too bad. … Because I don’t intend on going anywhere. Really, Really sad, though!”

The capitalization impaired response spanned four painful tweets, all of which were later deleted when Stephen A. pretended to be a good sport about the fact that he didn’t get the satire. He added, “Peeps got jokes, It’s cool!” Peeps got jokes indeed.

Next time Stephen A. should try reading something before getting so bent out of shape about it. If he did more reading and less screaming, perhaps he’d start to grasp the grammatical fundamentals of the written word.

=====================================================================

In February 2013, Stephen A. Smith was invited to address the Greater Travelers Rest Baptist Church. Because it’s what Jesus would have wanted, naturally he boasted about it on Twitter:

For those interested in hearing the Sermon — yes Sermon — I gave last Sunday in Decatur, Ga, here’s a way to get it: … And Btw…the ONLY reason I called it a sermond is b/c that’s what folks in attendance called it. I have a loooonnnggg way to go in my faith … There is no hypocrite in me. Would never pretend to be something I’m not……especially in God’s House. Please know this!

Listen, you guys—Stephen A. wasn’t calling it a sermon! He’s no hypocrite. He’s still working on his faith. He would never boast about himself in the house of the Lord!

He was only repeating what he heard from the hundreds of adoring parishioners were screaming from the pews. Can’t you tell the difference, stupid?

======================================================================

As much of a blowhard as Stephen A. Smith is, he routinely finds himself out of his league squaring off with Skip Bayless on First Take. He’s quick to admit that he knows absolutely nothing when it comes to anything outside the NBA.

He tweeted the following about Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, the obvious Heisman frontrunner, in early December 2012:

“I’m an honorable man, so I must admit @realskipbayless is right-on with that. He IS the one who told me about Manziel. … I’m an honorable man so I have to admit:@RealSkipBayless is telling the truth. Didn’t know a damn thing about Manziel until Skip told me.”

There’s no question that the Heisman race was a complete tossup through much of the college football year, but he Manziel had definitely solidified himself as the front-runner by December.

The fact that Stephen A., whose idiocy ESPN airs at least 20 hours of per week, had no idea who Johnny Manziel was (until he was educated by Skip Bayless) until the end of the college football season is beyond inexcusable.

=========================================================================

Stephen A. Smith has found himself in hot water for using the n-word more than once on First Take. The first time he said it was in December 2011, referring to LeBron James as “this n—a.”

He faced relatively little fallout stemming from this incident, despite the fact that it was said in a much more serious tone than the more recent incident.

The more recent incident in question came in October 2012. Smith was asked if he believed Kobe Bryant would miss the start of the Lakers’ season due to an injury. He replied quickly and audibly:

“He’ll be just fine. Opening night, Kobe Bryant is going to miss it because [his] foot is sprained? Are y’all crazy? N—a please.”

His comments blew up into national news story when the video of his comment began circulating on the web. Naturally, he handled it in a way that only Stephen A. could…or would…

Instead of issuing a simple innocuous apology for saying the thing we all heard him say, he completely denied saying the thing we all heard him say. Or he could have just said, “I said it, I’m not sorry.”

Arguing against the one thing everyone knows for sure—that you said it—is just too Stephen A. Smith for words.

=======================================================================

One of the most irritating things about Stephen A. Smith, besides the screaming, is the excessive hyperbole he employs in lieu of anything substantive. His way with words can only be described as Donald Trump-esque, with the limited depth and vocabulary he possesses.

In August 2012, the unhinged yellers at First Take took on the much debated issue of the Nationals preseason decision to shut down pitching ace Stephen Strasburg, who was coming off of Tommy John surgery, after 160 innings. Said he:

“I still think it’s disgraceful. The fact of the matter is that this is a young stud. Somebody’s got to figure something out. … I just don’t know what’s happened to the sport. I’m not in a position to argue about it. I just don’t understand how these guys are so coddled, and the need to protect these guys. I know he’s less than two years removed from Tommy John surgery. I understand that. I truly do. But I’m thinking about those paying customers.”

So doing something they said they were going to do before the season began in an effort to protect the long-term health of Strasburg, not to mention their own investment, is disgraceful? Agree or disagree with the Nats’ decision, but labeling it disgraceful is just ignorant.

And if Stephen A. concedes right off the bat that he is in no position to argue the point, why exactly does he continue to do so with such gusto? He truly understands the medical issues but is just worried about the fans? Don’t worry Stephen A.—Natties fans don’t need an incompetent, baseball-deficient boob championing them.

======================================================================

n October 2012, Stephen A. Smith had this to say about longtime respected Washington Post columnist Michael Wilbon, one of his colleagues at ESPN, for expressing support for Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III for the 2012 MVP:

“I think Mike Wilbon is insane. …I love him dearly. We’re very good friends. I love him, but he’s crazy. … He’s a little bit biased. Mike gets a little bit excited there. I mean, Mike’s willing to come off the golf course for those two cities [DC and Chicago] … But I’m not letting those Washington homers [Wilbon and Tony Kornheiser], those D.C. homers, get away with this one. No no no no no no.”

A month later Stephen A. tweeted this:

“I simply cannot believe that the Knicks picked the night they’re facing Jeremy Lin to stink up the joint. I’m so ashamed of them right now!”

So speaking out in favor of RG3 being named the MVP, an opinion that gained traction far outside the Washington beltway, that’s being a homer.

But taking a personal investment (also known as a grudge) in how the Knicks perform against someone Stephen A. feverishly hated before he left New York to sign with the Rockets—that’s just good journalism?

=====================================================================

Nobody on ESPN hides their ignorance about hockey—when it’s a topic broached on Around The Horn, the participants generally begin their argument with “Well, I’m not Mr. Hockey…but.” God forbid they learn about it.

Stephen A. Smith doesn’t hide his ignorance of anything, he prefers to flaunt it, and there’s nothing dislikes more and knows less about than the NHL. When “discussing” the Blackhawks’ record winning streak in March 2013, he had this to say:

“Excuse me … it wasn’t 21 games. It was really an 8-game streak. There are three ties. I’m sorry, that doesn’t count. … I’m not into the tie business. This isn’t soccer. OK? … And and and and and and the hockey stuff, I’m sorry, I’m not buying it. … Not only that: If you go to the overtime you get a point. If you win the game, you get a couple of points. I’m sorry, you want a cookie? Last time I checked, when you take to the ice, it’s to actually win. It’s not to tie. So I don’t get all of this stuff. Hockey’s clearly all about points, because if you go to overtime 20 times you get 20 points. I don’t understand that. You either win or you lose in sports. … When the Stanley Cup champion is crowned, is it because of a tie? No, it’s because of a win.”

You aren’t into hockey, Stephen A.? Well you don’t say! Could’ve fooled us.

Suppose it doesn’t matter that hockey hasn’t had ties since 2004 and that all games are settled via a shootout if the tie isn’t broken during five minutes of overtime. And that ties have never existed in the playoffs, but rather sudden-death periods of overtime that function the same as additional full periods of hockey.

So maybe the last time he “checked” was 2004? But that’s being generous because it’s more than abundantly clear that Stephen A. has never and will never know anything about anything aside from the NBA. He doesn’t even try to hide his ignorance on the subject, or any subject, and seems quite content with yelling nonsense.

Ebola Takes Heavy Toll on Health Workers

VIDEO: American Doctor Undergoing Treatment After Testing Positive for Ebola

I can talk about this shit until I’m blue in the face (which I don’t want) but if Americans and the world citizens don’t take this shit seriously – we are totally fucked. 

The Ebola virus continues its grim march across west Africa as the first two Americans were reported to be infected and a top Liberian doctor died this weekend.

Officials are also concerned after an infected man managed to board a plane from Liberia to Nigeria, potentially spreading the deadly virus to a fourth country.

The World Health Organization has reported that 1,093 people were infected with the virus as of July 20 in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia, and of those infected 660 have died.

This weekend an American relief organization reported that both Dr. Kent Brantly and aid worker Nancy Writebol were sickened with the virus. They were helping the joint SIM/Samaritan’s Purse team treating Ebola patients at the Case Management Center in Monrovia.

The country’s medical team also suffered a serious blow when top Ebola doctor Dr. Samuel Brisbane died from an Ebola infection on Saturday.

Health officials are particularly vulnerable to contracting the virus, which is spread through blood and other secretions. The WHO reported that at least 100 health workers have been infected with the disease and 50 percent of them have died.

Last week Dr. Sheik Humarr Khan, the doctor in charge of battling Sierra Leone’s outbreak, was infected with the disease.

Dr. Steve Monroe, deputy director in Infectious Diseases at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told ABC News that the outbreak has been going on for a long time and that usually health workers are infected at the beginning of an outbreak before the disease has been identified.

When a health worker is infected, officials will look for lapses in the use of the heavy safety gear designed to protect health workers, ABC News chief medical correspondent Dr. Richard Besser said.

“I’ve worn that gear and after about 15 minutes you are so hot in that gear you either have to get out of there or you’re going to be dehydrated,” Besser said. “Or there can be lapses. They’re going to look and see if there was some break in that procedure.”

Although the outbreak has been going on for months, there is no sign it will end soon.

The second American to be infected was identified as Nancy Writebol, who is employed by SIM in Liberia and was helping the joint SIM/Samaritan’s Purse team that is treating Ebola patients at the Case Management Center in Monrovia.

SIM manages ELWA Hospital in Morovia, and the two organizations have been working closely to combat Ebola since the current outbreak began in Liberia in March.

Writebol,who is married with two children, had been working as a hygienist who decontaminated those entering and leaving the Ebola care area at the hospital, Ken Isaacs, a vice president of Samaritan’s Purse, told The Associated Press.

“She is showing full symptoms of the disease,” Isaacs said.

Dr. Kent Brantly, 33-year-old American doctor who was treating Ebola patients, also tested positive for the deadly disease. He was reported to be sitting up in his isolated hospital bed and working on his computer after he contracted the deadly virus this week.

Brantly, from Fort Worth, Texas, has been living and working in Monrovia, Liberia since last October, when he moved there with his wife and two young children as part of a post-residency program set up by Samaritan’s Purse, a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization that aims to provide international aid.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Hispanic Lawmakers to Obama: Take ‘Executive Action’ to Stop All Deportations

July 10, 2014 – 4:02 PM

Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) spoke at a press conference on July 10, 2014 in Washington, D.C., calling on President Barack Obama to stop deportations of illegal aliens in the United States using executive orders. (CNSNews.com/Penny Starr)

WRITE TO THESE TWO REPS ON TWITTER – DEMAND THEY PUT THEIR MONEY WHERE THEIR BIG MOUTH IS: ADOPT THESE ILLEGAL KIDS OR DEPORT THEM. 

Reps. Luis Guiterrez (D-Ill.) – not on twitter but the other guy is:

Raul M. Grijalva

@RepRaulGrijalva

(CNSNews.com) –Reps. Luis Guiterrez (D-Ill.) and Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.) joined immigration activists Thursday in calling on President Barack Obama to stop deportations and allow illegal aliens to have work permits. It’s the latest effort to compel the president to make sweeping changes to immigration law through executive orders.The Democrats also want Obama’s Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy to apply to parents of so-called Dreamers and others, putting them on a path to citizenship as spelled out in the immigration bill (S.744) as passed by the Senate in June 2013. The House has not taken up that bill.

“I believe the president of the United States can take the kind of broad, executive action that can help millions of people stop their deportation and be in deportation proceedings, No. 1, or possibly ever be deported, and give them a work permit,” said Guiterrez, who with Grijalva is also a member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC).

“Now it is the authority of the president to provide that security, that comfort to millions and millions of families,” Grijalva said.

In December 2013, Grijalva and 17 other lawmakers sent a letter to Obama asking him to halt all deportations until Congress had passed legislation on “comprehensive immigration reform.”

The letter also called for expanding those eligible for DACA to include “family and neighbors” of children brought here illegally by their parents.

“We cannot continue to witness potential citizens in our districts go through the anguish of deportation when legalization could be just around the corner for them,” the letter states. “We look to you to firmly contribute to advancing inclusion for immigrants by suspending deportations and expanding DACA.”

In April, the CHC sent a 6-page memorandum to Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson seeking “administrative relief and more humane enforcement practices” from and of immigration laws.

The list of recommendations basically would protect all illegal aliens except those with disqualifying crimes from being detained or deported and also calls for an end to the Secure Communities program, a highly successful program, according to DHS’s Immigration and Custom’s Enforcement.

“Under Secure Communities, the FBI automatically sends the fingerprints to DHS to check against its immigration databases,” the ICE website said about the program.

“If these checks reveal that an individual is unlawfully present in the United States or otherwise removable due to a criminal conviction, ICE takes enforcement action – prioritizing the removal of individuals who present the most significant threats to public safety as determined by the severity of their crime, their criminal history, and other factors – as well as those who have repeatedly violated immigration laws,” it added.

Both Gutierrez and Grijalva said that the immigration crisis on the border involving a recent surge of illegal aliens crossing the U.S. border with Mexico, including more than 50,000 unaccompanied children, should not stop immigration reforms but encourage it.

“I also want to be sure that we do not allow the humanitarian crisis on our border to impact or somehow deteriorate the momentum of our movement or our petition for the president,” Gutierrez said at the press conference. “If anything, that humanitarian crisis on the border should urge the president to do more and more quickly and to be broader.”

“The fact of the matter is these kids are here now, and by law and by value, this country has an obligation – both a moral imperative and a legal obligation – to provide custodial care and process these kids correctly,” Grijalva said.Raul Grijalva

Hamas Agrees To 24-Hour Holiday Truce In Gaza War

Posted: 07/27/2014 8:20 am EDT Updated: 2 hours agoGAZA

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — Hamas on Sunday agreed to observe a 24-hour truce in Gaza after initially rejecting a similar Israeli offer, as fighting resumed and the two sides wrangled over the terms of a lull that international diplomats had hoped could be expanded into a more sustainable truce.

After Israel announced a 24-hour truce late Saturday, Palestinian militants fired rockets deep into Israel, prompting it to resume an offensive aimed at destroying rocket launchers and cross-border attack tunnels used by Hamas, the Islamic militant group ruling the coastal strip.

But hours after the renewal of hostilities Hamas said it would be willing to abide by a new 24-hour humanitarian truce ahead of the Eid al-Fitr holiday marking the end of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan. The three-day Eid al-Fitr holiday is expected to begin Monday or Tuesday, depending on the sighting of the new moon.

Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said the truce would go into effect at 2 p.m. (1100 GMT) Sunday. But shortly after the truce was to have started warning sirens wailed in southern Israel and the military said three rockets landed in the area, without causing casualties or damage.

Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, an Israeli army spokesman, did not say if Israel would hold its fire during the time requested by Hamas, but said troops would continue demolishing militant tunnels — the central goal of the Israeli ground operation in Gaza.

Families in Gaza would ordinarily be busy now with preparations for the holiday, with children getting new clothes, shoes and haircuts, and families visiting each other.

In the outdoor market of the Jebaliya refugee camp, vendors set up stands with clothes and shoes, but said business was slow. Hamed Abul Atta, 22, a shoe salesman, said he hadn’t made a single sale in the first three hours after opening.

Abul Atta said he had opened the shop Sunday to get away from the crowded apartment where he and his family were staying with relatives after fleeing an area of heavy fighting, the Shijaiyah district in Gaza City.

He said his family house in Shijaiyah was badly damaged and that a cousin and three other relatives were among dozens of people killed in heavy fighting there last week.

“We can’t feel any joy right now,” he said when asked if he would mark the holiday in some way.

Israel had offered a 24-hour truce late Saturday, but Hamas — which has demanded the lifting of the Israeli and Egyptian blockade on Gaza as well as the release of Palestinian prisoners — rejected it.

The 20-day war has killed more than 1,060 Palestinians, mainly civilians, according to Palestinian health officials. Israel has lost 43 soldiers, while two Israeli civilians and a Thai worker in Israel were killed by rocket and mortar attacks from Gaza.

The military had earlier said about a dozen rockets were fired toward Israel since midnight — without causing casualties or damage — and that as a result it would “resume its aerial, naval and ground activity in the Gaza Strip.” The Israeli military released a video showing a rocket being fired from what it said was a Gaza school.

“The military is aiming its fire at terror sites, but if citizens are accidently harmed Hamas is responsible for this since it once again violated an offer for a humanitarian lull that Israel accepted.” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office said in a statement.

The 12-hour lull on Saturday — agreed to by both sides following intense U.S. and U.N. mediation efforts — saw Palestinians return to neighborhoods reduced to rubble and allowed medics to collect close to 150 bodies, Palestinian health official Ashraf al-Kidra said.

The Israeli military says it is doing its utmost to prevent civilian casualties, including by sending evacuation warnings to residents in targeted areas, and blames Hamas for putting civilians in harm’s way.

More than 160,000 displaced Palestinians have sought shelter at dozens of U.N. schools, an eight-fold increase since the start of Israel’s ground operation more than a week ago, the U.N. said.

Hamas and other militants in Gaza have fired more than 2,400 rockets at Israel since hostilities began on July 8, many deep into the Israeli heartland and toward most of the country’s major cities.

Israeli airstrikes have destroyed hundreds of homes, including close to 500 in direct hits, according to Palestinian rights groups, Entire Gaza neighborhoods near the border have been reduced to rubble.

Before the announcement of the holiday cease-fire, Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri had said any truce must include a withdrawal of Israeli forces from Gaza, and that tens of thousands of displaced people must be allowed to return to their homes.

Israel’s acceptance of the cease-fire extension was premised on its soldiers remaining in Gaza to destroy the more than 30 tunnels the military says it has found. Hamas has said it will not halt fire until it wins guarantees that the border blockade, tightened by Israel and Egypt after it seized the territory in 2007, will be lifted.

Any new border arrangements for Gaza would likely give a role to Western-backed Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, who reached a power-sharing deal earlier this year with Hamas that was harshly condemned by Israel.

Egypt wants forces loyal to Abbas to be posted on the Gaza side of the border before considering opening its Rafah crossing.

Hamas officials have said they do not oppose such an arrangement, but would not surrender control over the group’s thousands-strong security forces, meaning it would remain the de facto power in Gaza.

Israeli police meanwhile said security forces prevented a major attack when they stopped a suspicious vehicle in the West Bank and discovered a large explosive inside. Police said the suspect was a Palestinian from the West Bank city of Ramallah in his 30s.

The West Bank remained calm in the early days of the Gaza conflict but in recent days has seen growing protests and clashes between stone-throwers and Israeli security forces. Nine Palestinians have been killed there.

In Gaza, the local Red Cross office said its building in Khan Younis was attacked by a “crowd of angry people.”

Witnesses said the crowd that stormed the building had lost family members during the fighting and were angry over what they said was a lack of support by emergency services.

Nadia Dibsy, an ICRC spokeswoman in Jerusalem, said there were no immediate reports of injuries, but that the reception area and office materials sustained damage from a small fire.

“We definitely deplore this kind of incident, which we take quite seriously. It’s an obstruction of the work and efforts we’ve been doing since the beginning of this conflict,” said Dibsy. “We are doing the best we can, we are asking people not to take their anger out on us.”

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — A brief cease-fire Saturday in the Gaza war between Israel and Hamas militants allowed thousands to return home to see the destruction.

Palestinians walked through the concrete rubble that once used to be homes, collecting what keepsakes they could recover. Some openly wept when they saw what little remained. Two men poured water for birds left behind in one demolished home.

Some Palestinian men climbed over an Israeli armored vehicle, apparently left behind during a military operation. Others held funerals for their dead.

At least 985 Palestinians, mainly civilians, have been killed and more than 6,000 wounded over the past 19 days, according to Palestinian officials. Israeli strikes have destroyed hundreds of homes, including close to 500 in targeted hits, and forced tens of thousands of people to flee, according to Palestinian rights groups.

Israel has lost 37 soldiers and two civilians, and a Thai worker also has been killed in fighting and in Hamas rocket attacks. On the edge of Gaza, Israeli soldiers regrouped as Israel’s defense minister warned he might soon expand the ground operation in Gaza “significantly.”

Here is a collection of Associated Press images showing life in Gaza amid Saturday’s cease-fire.
