Mother watched as daughter gunned down in Gilroy Garlic Festival shooting: 'She took my hand and looked up at the sky'

2020.09.13 23:38 skeletor_thagawd Mother watched as daughter gunned down in Gilroy Garlic Festival shooting: 'She took my hand and looked up at the sky'

SAN JOSE, Calif. - The 12-year-old girl sat on the bottom bunk bed where her older sister, Keyla Salazar, used to sleep.
Lyann Salazar held a pencil in one hand and, in the other, an iPhone displaying a picture of Keyla. She drew a portrait of Keyla on a blank page of her notebook.
Lyann and Keyla used to share the small bedroom in their San Jose home, but now Lyann sleeps there alone, with just Keyla's Chihuahua, Lucky, to comfort her.
"She's drawing and writing to her sister to give her a last goodbye," the sisters' grandmother, Betzabe Vargas Fabes, said in Spanish.
Keyla was one of three people shot to death last week at the Gilroy Garlic Festival, and in a few days her family would gather for her funeral.
Lyann looked up from the bed, but remained silent as she sketched outlines of her sister's face.
The room was simple, just how Keyla liked it.
Scattered about were reminders of Keyla: A pink teddy bear with the word "princess" sewn across the front. Plastic stars the girls had stuck on the ceiling that lighted up at night. Several pairs of Keyla's headphones that she used while making YouTube videos and animations on her computer and iPad.
"The sisters were so united. Keyla would draw there, and she (Lyann) would draw here," Fabes, 58, said, pointing to opposite sides of the lower bunk.
On Saturday, six days after the shooting in Gilroy, a gunman opened fire near a shopping mall in El Paso, Texas, killing 22 people and wounding more than two dozen others. It was the same day that Keyla's family and community honored her at a vigil at Latino College Preparatory Academy, the school that she was set to attend this fall.
The 21-year-old gunman arrested in the El Paso massacre is believed to have written a hate-filled manifesto disparaging Latino immigrants.
Law enforcement officials said they have not uncovered any evidence that the Gilroy gunman targeted a particular race. But before the shooting, he posted a photo on Instagram with a caption that read, in part: "Why overcrowd towns and pave more open space to make room for hordes of mestizos?"
As in Gilroy, many of the El Paso victims were Latinos. "At this point we are really traumatized. We feel like we can't go to the grocery store because we feel like something is going to happen," said Keyla's aunt, Katiuska Pimentel, 24. "We feel their pain."
In their grief, Keyla's family remembered the girl who loved animals and drawing and telling stories through animation. She had autism, which caused her to struggle in school and made it difficult to communicate with her peers. Still, she persevered and graduated in June from middle school. Perched on a shelf in the living room is a certificate from Keyla's school naming her Most Artistic.
"She was so happy to graduate because she had to work really hard to get her grades," Pimentel said.
Her favorite animation character was "Stitch," the frantic blue creature from the Disney movie "Lilo & Stitch." At least three Stitch stuffed animals lay around her home, sitting on the living room couches and in Keyla's bedroom.
Her grandmother clutched to her chest a Stitch sweatshirt her family bought her on a recent trip to Disneyland. The last picture the family has of Keyla is from that trip. She's wearing a red shirt, smiling. The photo, along with others of Keyla, was displayed among an abundance of white roses and lilies at an altar set up in the living room.
A steady stream of visitors has stopped by the family home in recent days, offering condolences, food, flowers, hugs and tears. The days were busy and mournful - a welcome distraction, but also a constant reminder of their loss.
Every time an uncle called and another teacher came to sit on the family couch, Keyla's mother, Lorena Pimentel de Salazar, 35, found herself reliving the minutes of the shooting.
When her cousin knocked at the metal white door on Friday afternoon, he embraced her.
"I can't sleep, I can't sleep," she told her cousin, Hans Bludau, in Spanish. She pointed to her head.
"I have the dreams right here every night ... I saw when he was shooting."
When they first heard the shots, Pimentel de Salazar started running with her other two daughters, Lyann and 4-year-old Dasha, while her partner stayed behind with Keyla, who was unable to run because of medical problems.
She saw her daughter fall to the ground.
"She looked at me, and she could no longer speak," Pimentel de Salazar said. "She took my hand and looked up at the sky."
Then Keyla closed her eyes.
"In that moment I knew that she was up above us."
Keyla came from an immigrant family - her mother is from Peru, her father from Mexico.
Pimentel de Salazar said she came to the United States almost 20 years ago, and her daughters all were born here. Keyla's grandmother, Vargas Fabes, joined the family in the U.S. about two years ago.
"We love the United States," Vargas Fabes said. A former schoolteacher, Vargas Fabes said Peru's education system could not offer the opportunities her granddaughters had here.
On Friday, Vargas Fabes was eager to show visitors the drawing the family had recently found on Keyla's iPad. But some images took the family by surprise.
"This one made us cry," she said, pulling up one sketch. It showed two characters dressed in different shades of pink, with what looked like cat ears and fox tails, laughing. Above them, Keyla had written the word "Bullys."
On the other side of the screen, she wrote "Me!", with an arrow pointing to another animal-like character, whom she labeled "Frosty." Blue tears streamed down Frosty's face.
"She suffered from bullying at school because of her disability," Keyla's mother said.
Sometimes, kids would pull a chair out from under her when she tried to sit down, or make fun of her height, since she was taller than most her age.
It never seemed to bring her down too much, the family said, but the bullying image on the iPad - which they were seeing for the first time - suggested a profound inner hurt.
"She was happy regardless of everything she had to go through," said Keyla's aunt.
That afternoon, Pimentel de Salazar had gone to pick up Dasha from daycare. Dasha, too, had seen her sister get shot, and the caretaker suggested she needed therapy. Dasha had been telling the other children that a "bad man" could come get them.
But after she was brought home, Dasha ran into the house happily sucking a lollipop and holding a stuffed rainbow-colored unicorn, while her mother followed, the bags under her eyes deeper than they were the day before.
At a fundraiser that Friday evening, dozens packed into what looked like an old garage converted into a dance studio near Roosevelt Park in San Jose.
Pimentel de Salazar's Zumba teacher, Roberto Roman, 32, had organized a fundraiser for Keyla's family, along with several other Zumba teachers in the neighborhood.
Those in attendance joined hands and recited the Padre Nuestro, or "Our Father." Then they danced.
"We are with Lorena!" Roman, 32, bellowed in Spanish from the stage, referring to Keyla's mother, as he pumped a fist into the air. The audience clapped and cheered.
A short time later, the music was lowered and people began to whisper, "llego la mama." "The mother has arrived."
Dressed in black, Pimentel de Salazar walked in accompanied by six family members. The crowd parted and the music stopped.
Vargas Fabes held her grieving daughter's arms to help her stand as both of them made their way to the stage. The mother's voice was shaky, her eyes teary as she lifted the microphone.
"I want to thank you with all my heart," she told the crowd. "I don't have adequate words for everything that you are all doing."
Her few words were met with a burst of applause and a chant: "Te queremos, Lore, te queremos." "We love you, Lore, we love you."
The next day, Pimentel de Salazar and her family attended a vigil for Keyla. Dasha comforted her mother and grandmother as singers performed to honor Keyla.
Pictures and images from the family home were brought out onto tables overlooking the high school lawn. Keyla's stepfather remained a quiet observer, occasionally embracing Dasha behind the crowd, his arm still bandaged from the bullet that grazed him six days earlier.
As the sun set, volunteers handed out candles as they surrounded Keyla's mother.
Then came a moment of silence for Keyla, for the other Gilroy victims, and for the people killed the same day in El Paso.
On Sunday, Keyla's living room altar radiated with color. White roses and lilies were replaced with bright pink, orange and red daisies.
That day marked one week since the shooting. It also was Keyla's 14th birthday.
As the family gathered in San Jose's Emma Prusch Farm Park, they placed framed copies of her iPad drawings of Frosty and the bullies on the tables.
There were pinatas and cake, chorizo and asada tacos. Dozens of people attended, and the little kids played.
"She'll be 14, but she's not here with us," Pimentel told the crowd.
On the day of her death, Keyla had written a note to her family asking for a golden retriever puppy for Lyann. Keyla already had her Chihuahua, Lucky, and she thought her sister deserved a pet too.
At the birthday party, San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo presented Keyla's family a certificate to pick up a golden retriever puppy, with care paid for.
As a mariachi band played "Las Mananitas," a Mexican birthday song, Keyla's mother occasionally looked up at them, sometimes pulling up her phone to take videos, sometimes crying.
"Despierta, mi bien, despierta," the mariachis sang.
Wake up, my dear, wake up.

2020.09.12 04:04 shylock92008 DEA seizes nearly 29,000 pounds of meth in Operation Crystal Shield

https://www.kold.com/2020/09/10/dea-seizes-nearly-pounds-meth-operation-crystal-shield/
By KOLD News 13 Staff September 10, 2020 at 11:34 AM MST - Updated September 10 at 1:39 PM
PHOENIX (KOLD News 13) - A Drug Enforcement Agency-led effort known as Operation Crystal Shield resulted in nearly 1,840 arrests and the seizure of more than 28,560 pounds of methamphetamine.
Attorney General William Barr joined DEA Acting Administrator Timothy Shea in Phoenix on Thursday, Sept. 10, to announce the results of the nearly seven-month operation that targeted elements of Mexican cartels operating so-called transportation hubs throughout the United States.
In addition to the arrests and seized drugs, the operation led to more than 750 investigations that resulted in $43.3 million in drug proceeds and 284 firearms.
Operation Crystal Shield was launched on Feb. 20 in nine cities that accounted for more than 75 percent of the methamphetamine seized by the DEA in 2019. The DEA partnered with other federal, state and local law enforcement in Phoenix, San Diego, Los Angeles, El Paso, Houston, Dallas, New Orleans, St. Louis and Atlanta to target the transportation networks behind the drug shipments.
“The COVID pandemic locked down many communities and impacted legitimate businesses, but the drug trade continued," Shea said. "Under difficult conditions, DEA – along with our federal, state, and local partners – never stopped working as we helped stem the flow of methamphetamine onto our streets, even as violent drug traffickers sought new ways to smuggle it into the United States.”
Barr called the results of the operation “astounding.”
“Methamphetamine is a brutal drug linked to violent crime and responsible for far too many fatal overdoses,” he said. “The astounding results of Operation Crystal Shield clearly demonstrate the commitment by the DEA and our state and local partners to prevent this deadly drug from reaching the streets of our communities. ”
Operation Crystal Shield leveraged existing DEA initiatives that target major drug trafficking networks, including the Mexican cartels responsible for virtually all of methamphetamine trafficked into and within the United States. From FY 2017 to FY 2019, DEA domestic seizures of methamphetamine increased 127 percent from 49,507 pounds to 112,146 pounds. During the same time, the number of DEA arrests related to methamphetamine increased by nearly 20 percent.

DEA-DOJ Press Release:
Today, Attorney General William P. Barr and Drug Enforcement Administration Acting Administrator Timothy J. Shea announced the results of Operation Crystal Shield, a DEA–led effort targeting the command and control elements of Mexican cartels that operate major methamphetamine “transportation hubs” throughout the United States.
At a press conference in Phoenix, Arizona, Attorney General Barr and Acting Administrator Shea announced that in the first six months, Operation Crystal Shield generated more than 750 investigations, resulting in nearly 1,840 arrests and the seizures of more than 28,560 pounds of methamphetamine, $43.3 million in drug proceeds, and 284 firearms.

“Methamphetamine is a brutal drug linked to violent crime and responsible for far too many fatal overdoses,” said Attorney General Barr. “The astounding results of Operation Crystal Shield clearly demonstrate the commitment by the DEA and our state and local partners to prevent this deadly drug from reaching the streets of our communities. Prosecuting individuals who traffic these poisons remains a top priority for President Trump and the entire Department of Justice.”
“In the months leading up to the launch of Operation Crystal Shield, communities across the United States experienced a surge of methamphetamine,” said Acting Administrator Shea. “The COVID pandemic locked down many communities and impacted legitimate businesses, but the drug trade continued. Under difficult conditions, DEA – along with our federal, state, and local partners – never stopped working as we helped stem the flow of methamphetamine onto our streets, even as violent drug traffickers sought new ways to smuggle it into the United States. The success of Operation Crystal Shield reflects the devotion of DEA and our partners to protect our communities from the scourge of drug trafficking and violent crime under any circumstances.”

DEA launched Operation Crystal Shield on February 20, 2020, after identifying nine major methamphetamine trafficking hubs:
Atlanta, Dallas, El Paso, Houston, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Phoenix, San Diego, and St. Louis.
Together these nine cities accounted for more than 75 percent of the methamphetamine seized by DEA in 2019. Under this operation, DEA directed enforcement resources to these cities where methamphetamine is often trafficked in bulk and then distributed across the country, and partnered with other federal, state, and local law enforcement to interdict these shipments and target the transportation networks behind them.
Operation Crystal Shield leveraged existing DEA initiatives that target major drug trafficking networks, including the Mexican cartels responsible for virtually all of methamphetamine trafficked into and within the United States. From FY 2017 to FY 2019, DEA domestic seizures of methamphetamine increased 127 percent from 49,507 pounds to 112,146 pounds. During the same timeframe, the number of DEA arrests related to methamphetamine increased by nearly 20 percent.

MSFS Includes Hundreds of Photorealistic Cities

As we have learned, the entire Earth of the next-generation Microsoft Flight Simulator is based on Bing Maps satellite imagery, filled with Blackshark.ai’s auto-generated objects, such as houses, trees, and windmills. A few hundreds of cities, strictly speaking of 341, mostly in North America and Europe, have been presented more accurately by using photogrammetry.
In some cities, the data may be a few years old, which can be seen as old commercials in some of the billboards. More highly modeled cities will come in the future as World Update for sure, although there is no confirmation on this yet. Below is the list of highly modeled cities, organized by countries and states (United States).

2020.09.05 12:40 nstav13 [Spoilers] The United States and Westward Expansion - Common Setting Discussions

A common trait Assassin’s Creed groups have is the constant theorizing about future settings, because historical tourism is one of the best parts of the series. This series of posts will act as a counter to my Mildly Obscure setting discussions, but rather than looking at a single point, I will be taking a broad setting that is popular and looking at several potential settings to explore within it. Today’s setting is the United States. I want to say that I personally am not a huge fan of the setting, and like WW2, worry about whether or not Ubisoft could actually tactfully do these settings, but due to the lore potential, I’m willing to discuss them. Most of these settings would suffer from issues that plagued Syndicate such as proximity to the modern-day causing fake events and characters to be made to avoid lawsuits, parkour issues from wide streets and small buildings, or painfully tall buildings, and poor weapon variety due to legal carrying restrictions.

Shays’ Rebellion
The American Revolution had a heavy toll on thousands of soldiers. Besides the loss of life and injuries, many men never received their full pay. In the early 1780s, this started to become a major issue, as men returning home from warlike Daniel Shay were being asked to pay large debts and taxes that they couldn’t afford because of the lack of pay. Many protests were held in Massachusetts from 1782 to 1785 against these taxes and to get the pay the veterans had earned. In August 1786, protestors organized to begin forcefully shutting down the courts. Government officials denounced the mob mentality but did nothing to stop it. Daniel Shays would start to organize more of these shutdowns and lead about 300 men to the Springfield Courts, which were then protected by William Shepard who held about 800 men at his command. After a day of demonstrations with no violence, Shepard led his men to the Springfield Armory due to rumors of the mob planning to attack it. By October of 1786 more protests had successfully shut down courts in Taunton, Great Barrington, and Concord. State officials now feared the violence and the potential for civil war and Samuel Adams worked with the state officials to draft a riot act to suspend habeas corpus and imprison the rioters without a trial while advocating for the execution of anyone who tried to rebel against the republic. With the new legislation in place, several of the movement’s leaders were arrested in eastern Massachusetts, causing 4,000 men to form an open rebellion against the “tyrannical state”.
The open rebellion caused Benjamin Lincoln to be granted money to form a militia and march west on January 19th. By that point, Shepard had amassed a local militia of 1200 men at the Springfield Federal Armory (a place he was not technically legally allowed to defend as a local militia)and Daniel Shays had coordinated with Luke Day to advance on the federal armory. Due to correspondence being stopped by Shepard’s men, Shays didn’t know Day was running late by a day and arrived at the armory on January 25th with no support from the west. Shepard had 2 cannons fired as a warning shot which scattered Shays forces. General Lincoln managed to track the army down to Pelham on the 4th of February during a snowstorm and capture about 150 men. Shay went into hiding as Lincoln’s army melted away from lack of funding. By the end of February, the 3000 man army dwindled to less than 200, and during that time a force of 200 men regrouped to attack Stockbridge on early February 27th. The remaining army eventually caught up with them in the night at Sheffield leading to the bloodiest battle of the rebellion with over 30 men killed, and 150 captured. Shays’ Rebellion was ultimately a failure, but it had a large impact on the creation of the modern US constitution and the creation of a standing army. I also think it may be interesting if Shay Cormac had taken the name Daniel Shays during the Revolutionary War to act as a Templar mole searching for the Piece of Eden George Washington would find and that the “little revolution” he referenced at the end of Rogue was not the French Revolution, but him orchestrating Shays’ Rebellion against the new republic that the Templars largely fought against. Daniel Shays would eventually die in 1825, and while Shay would be very old by that point, it would make sense to be that late due to Shay’s relationship with his grandson Cudgel.

War of 1812
America’s relationship with Britain continued to strain during the years following the Revolutionary War. Britain used its colonies in Canada to give supplies and aid to Native American tribes with the intent of those tribes attacking American settlers. By 1805 a confederation of Native Americans formed in the great lakes and would actively kill any European-American settlers. Leading this was Tecumseh who was the brother of the original mastermind of the confederation. This conflict would lead the American government to lead the Battle of Tippecanoe against Tecumseh in 1811, and hostilities only increased from there. During the Napoleonic Wars, Britain set up large blockades of ports to stop Americans from trading with the French. While enforcing this, British ships had killed dozens of Americans and impressed even more into service. On June 1st, 1812, President James Madison sent Congress a list of grievances the United States had with Britain, and 4 days later, Congress voted to declare war for the first time.
The first stage of the war primarily took place in the North East US and Canada. I’d personally say that this should be the bulk of the main map with cities like Baltimore, Detroit, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Montreal, Toronto, and Quebec. And then we could see the other primary theatres as smaller self-contained maps. William Hull initially led the charge into Canada in early July of 1812, only to be chased back out by Shawnee natives combined with forces of the British Major General Isaac Brock who then laid siege to Detroit in August. Following Hull’s defeat, General William Henry Harrison took control of the American Armies and led them to victory in several battles around the Great Lakes, primarily against the Tecumseh Confederacy. On October 5th, 1813, Tecumseh was killed at the Battle of the Thames. The next year was a constant back and forth between Americans and British fighting over forts along the Canada-US border with several notable sieges at York (Toronto), Niagra, Fort Erie, and Plattsburgh. To the west, a series of battles were fought from 1812 to 1814 along the Mississippi River reaching down to St Louis.
The east coast of the US saw a lot of action during the war. Starting in 1812, the British set up a series of blockades around the US. The blockade ended up serving as a large way for Black Refugees to escape slavery and get to Canada where they’d be freed. It also gave partial control of the Chesapeake Bay, and despite attempts to fortify the Potomac River in 1813, by 1814 the British freed of the Napoleonic Wars sent more ships to the war in America, breaking through the fortifications. Their first major attack was the Burning of Washington DC in response to the Battle of York (Toronto) a year prior. The British then went north and led a land and naval battle at Baltimore (the naval bombardment of Baltimore was partially what inspired the lyrics of the Star-Spangled Banner). During the battle, the British General Ross was killed, leaving command to Colonel Arthur Brooke who after finishing the battle, commanded his troops and ships to New Orleans.
The Creek War was the southernmost war partially influenced by Tecumseh’s Confederacy. The Lower Creeks in Alabama had been trading partners for the US and Settlers, adopting many of their cultural practices, while the Upper Creeks controlled the rivers and were concerned about the loss of the culture and lifestyle to encroaching US settlers. Over the course of 2 years, General Andrew Jackson would lead US and Lower Creek troops against the Upper Creeks and ultimately gained 21 million acres for the US in what is now Alabama and Georgia. During this American General James Wilkinson took the city of Mobile and part of western Spanish Florida. At the end of 1814 and January of 1815, the British would lead multiple offenses against New Orleans and Mobile, losing each time. By that point, both the Americans and the British had sent delegates to Ghent to negotiate a stalemate. On December 24th the Treaty of Ghent was signed, but it wouldn’t be until February that the news reached America and the fighting ceased. The most lore we have is that every presidency was contested between Assassins and Templars and the first Templar President was Franklin D. Roosevelt. I do really like this period for opening up the capability of expanding Connor’s Story, tying up Shay, maybe meet Shay’s son. There’s a ton of lore possibilities here. We also know that the apple Connor dropped in the ocean was retrieved by the 20th century, so it’s possible that part of the heavy naval portion of this war and blockade was a British effort to search for the apple.

Mexican-American War
In 1836 the Texas Revolution saw Texas freed from Mexico to the chagrin of Santa Anna, the sitting Mexican President. 9 years later, the Texas Republic continued to face threats from Mexico which did not view them as sovereign; the United States, as a result, annexed Texas. Texas, however, still claimed more land than it owned, and Mexico refused to recognize this, leading to American President James K. Polk to send an emissary to Mexico City to negotiate to buy land on good faith while also sending American troops over the border with the intention of provoking an armed military response. It did, and after American troops were fired upon at Palo Alto, America declared the Mexican-American War on May 13th, 1846. The war itself was largely controversial, including Abraham Lincoln; and many northern abolitionists saw it as a way to strengthen slavery in the south.
The first campaign of the war was to capture what became New Mexico. Santa Fe was captured by August of 1846 but rebels in the area led small assaults and raids for another year until the Battle of Cienega Creek. Following this, General Kearny marched his troops across the Sonoran Desert to California. It took 3 months for news of the war to originally reach California, and when it did, American troops planted flags in San Francisco. American armies would lead several battles just outside San Diego and Los Angeles, with small rebels popping up near San Francisco, but California was largely conquered by January of 1847.
Throughout 1846 troops marched from San Antonio and Corpus Christi to be met with battles in Monterrey and Buena Vista. By March 9th, 1847 General Scott was ordered to bring the war to a close by President Polk by capturing Mexico City. Commodore Matthew C Perry arrived at Veracruz on March 24th and opened it up with a naval bombardment. Despite several soldiers coming down with Yellow Fever during the 12-day siege, General Scott pushed on to Puebla and then Mexico City with Santa Anna expecting the diseases to wipe out the army. After a stop at Puebla due to the sick, Scott marched on to the Battle for Mexico City, a week-long series of battles that left Scott the military governor of the city on September 15th, 1847. Santa Anna then attempted to besiege Puebla but failed due to the Battle of Huamantla lifting the siege in early October. Following the defeat, a new Mexican Government led by Manuel de la Pena y Pena ceded over military control from Santa Anna to General Jose Joaquin de Herrera. The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was signed on February 2nd, 1848, with nearly 339 million acres of land given to the United States while the US paid $15 million dollars (approximately 5 cents per acre). Once again there’s next to no lore in this area, and we could see Shay’s son or Grandson be active during the war. That said, the United States was extremely aggressive during the war, and making assassins allied with either the US or Mexico could feel somewhat forced, as this was ultimately two countries fighting over land.

The Civil War
I personally don’t wish to discuss this setting too much, as I don’t believe Ubisoft could actually do this setting well, especially with the current lore. First of all, is the reasoning for the war. States' rights were ultimately the reason for southern secession; and slavery was the biggest of those concerns, and many smaller concerns revolved around slavery. Northern abolitionists had been sending over voters to commit voting fraud and try to force states below the Mason-Dixon line to not allow slavery. The Northern states refused to follow the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850, multiple states were displeased with high federal spending, they had issues with the regulation of the banks which hurt southern states more than northern, Northern States ruled congress due to population density, and there were many questions about how the south would survive economically if slavery was abolished. While we all agree in the modern-day that slavery is wrong (and our assassin character should agree), people did not historically hold that view. And to be fair to their fears, following the civil war the southern economy did crash, affecting more than the 1% of land-owning slave owners. Even the now freed blacks had nowhere to go or anything to do because they spent their entire lives on plantations. This resulted in many blacks essentially becoming serfs for their former masters. Segregation and Jim Crow laws only increased after the civil war due to racism, and despite freed black men legally being able to vote, they rarely could because of new racist restrictions. The south wasn’t alone in enacting racist legislation though, as New York has been called the capital of Jim Crow. Northerners may have been against slavery, but that doesn’t mean they cared what came next. Templars were primarily behind the south and secession, while assassins backed the north and abolitionists. Abraham Lincoln’s election is what ultimately set off the secession despite not even being an abolitionist. He, despite being against slavery, agreed that it was sanctioned by the US constitution under the 10th amendment. He cared more about keeping the union together, and still, the south seceded. Lincoln couldn’t let that stand and put northern troops in Fort Sumter, squarely in southern territory. He loaded the fort with arms and rations enough to last a long siege. The newly forming Confederacy of the United States saw this as a threat and fired upon the fort. Just like with the Mexican American War, Lincoln could now claim that not only did he want to keep the Union whole, but the south fired first. Lincoln then (illegally) declared Martial Law in Maryland in order to make sure the capital (Washington DC) wasn’t surrounded by enemies.
Despite the Assassins backing the north, we know from the movie that Assassins also supported the south. Perhaps this was similar to how General Lee was a general for the confederacy because of his family ties despite being against slavery? Perhaps Assassins and templars in the South agreed about very real potential issues with civil rights in the wake of slavery’s abolition and felt the solution could be worked out more diplomatically. We also know Templars controlled major parts of the North. William “Boss” Tweed was the boss of Tammany Hall and played a major part in the Democratic Party’s organization and the corruption in New York City. He was also a Templar master who worked with Cudgel Cormac (the grandson of Shay), to orchestrate the New York City Draft Riots in 1863. An assassin, Varius, worked for the Union and delivered a PoE to General Ulysses S Grant. John Wilkes Booth, a templar affiliate, assassinated Abraham Lincoln and then was killed by assassins 12 days later. Lincoln’s successor, Andrew Johnson, would go on to ratify the 13th through 15th amendments. His presidency was also about when the gilded age began, a period of 30 years marred by mass corruption and monopoly overreach during intense industrialization. Personally, I don’t think Ubisoft should attempt this setting. The rampant racism, the debate over what was a state right, the rise of organizations like the KKK, the bloody battles, and intense politics all still heavily impact the united states. Some men and women today can still say that their grandparents were freed from slavery between 1863-1865. The racism and corruption that poured forth in the aftermath can still be felt by many within the United States, even if such institutions have been since criminalized. The Civil War can be a very sensitive topic to people all across the United States, and it should be handled sensitively. I think there can be some very nuanced lore about the assassins and templars' roles during the war and why they chose certain sides. But ultimately I do not trust Ubisoft to handle this setting well. Unity nor Syndicate maturely handled themes of extremism or marxism well, and Origins and Odyssey have just blatantly ignored a lot of historical sexism and slavery. Freedom Cry was about freeing slaves and yet the slave ship you board shows a handful of men all chained separately and sitting up rather than the barbaric and cruel reality of the transatlantic slave trade that intended to spread disease and filth to break the body and mind of the slaves. Ignoring Injustices does not respect them or what millions of people went through.

Cowboys, Outlaws, and Indians in the West
The United States is incredibly beautiful, and the current games in this series have barely scratched the surface. Luckily, the westward expansion and wars America waged against the Native Americans are not only full of potential for fantastic (and tragic) stories but also can showcase a lot of America’s landscapes.
Founded in 1850 by Allan Pinkerton in 1850 the Pinkerton Detective Agency was a private security force that rose to prominence during and after the civil war. They’re well known for investigating and causing the collapse of several unions, investigating murders, serving as bodyguards for Abraham Lincoln, and infiltrating the Molly Maguires (a secret Irish organization in Pennsylvania). They famously were hired to hunt down Jesse James, the Reno Gang, and Butch Cassidy’s Wild Bunch. Outlaws were common in the south around Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California. Some like Jesse James and Black Bart were from farther North. Outlaws would generally prey on stagecoaches, trains, and banks, easy targets for quick money. Local sheriffs would then form posses to track down and bring the outlaws to justice. In cases of more notorious outlaws, detective agencies like the Pinkertons may be involved. Recently, however, the Pinkerton Agency has sued Rockstar for their portrayal in Red Dead Redemption 2; so it may not be possible to use them and we may see another Syndicate situation with Ubisoft making up fake gangs and agencies. Some towns and settlements began to pop up that supported outlaws. And these old west towns weren’t just down south in Texas and Arizona but stretched all the way north to the Dakotas, most famously including Deadwood where Wild Bill Hickock and Calamity Jane died. Some other famous towns include Tombstone Arizona and Cody Wyoming. Arizona was home to a number of towns like Phoenix, Tucson, and Flagstaff which was close to the Grand Canyon. Las Vegas existed as a small settlement in what is now Nevada, only a little to the west of the Grand Canyon, but wasn’t founded officially until 1905. California is home to Death Valley and part of the Mojave and Sonoran Deserts while also holding massive mountains and rolling hills covered in redwoods. To the east were cities like Albuquerque and John Cross ranch (now Truth or Consequences) in New Mexico, Amarillo, El Paso, Austin, Houston, and Dallas in Texas. North of Arizona is Utah, home of the Mormons and Salt Lake City, containing Arches National Park. Right next door is the rocky mountains and Denver that was founded during the gold rush. Wyoming contains Grand Teton, Devil’s Tower, and Yellowstone. Montana and the Dakotas are filled with forests and stunning hills and landmarks like the Badlands. Kansas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Iowa are largely flat open plains, home of large cattle ranches and cowboys, and easy targets for the outlaws while Louisiana is just a flat swamp. East of the Mississippi are still some plains until you reach the Appalachians which border the east Coast. The only place I’d say we should go that’s east of the Mississippi is Detroit, which was called the Paris of the West and home to the Pinkertons.
Despite the fun lawlessness found commonly throughout the frontier as explored by Red Dead Redemption, America also had a much darker side. The westward expansion that exploded into the west following the Mexican-American War and the Gold Rush meant violently pushing Native Americans out of their land into reservations. This led to dozens of wars and battles in a series called the Indian Wars. I don’t have enough space to go into details about the wars, but between 1850 and 1900 there were well over 50 wars just west of the Mississippi between Native American tribes and the United States military. This is even ignoring the trail of tears in the southeast. Some of the more famous wars are the Sioux Wars and the bulk of these lasted from 1854-1890. They included some of the most famous American Generals and Native American leaders including George Cook, George Custer, Little Crow, Crazy Horse, and Sitting Bull. During the Great Sioux War Lieutenant Colonel George Custer and over 300 of his men were killed at the Battle of Little Bighorn. Years later in 1890, one of the most famous incidents occurred where Kicking Bull and Sitting Bull led to their deaths. The natives entered into Ghost Dance War, and during it, the US Army entered the native camp at Wounded Knee and after hearing a gunshot, massacred 350 native men, women, and children. Those are just 2 famous events, the map linked above under Indian Wars shows the locations of dozens more battles and forts. Once again, this setting would need a lot of care and respect to do it right and is something I’d be very concerned about Ubisoft doing well.

2020.09.02 04:32 RobOesterle Question about Hank

How is it that Hank works for the DEA in New Mexico, with a Hispanic partner, and can’t speak a bit of Spanish? And, since he doesn’t speak that language, why would the DEA send him to head up a task force in El Paso, where he would undoubtedly encounter Spanish-speaking folks on both sides of the law?

2020.08.29 21:10 Someone-00 Guns, the medical profession, and bad history Part 2: The Wild West, the medical establishment and gun control, and Guns in peacetime

Continued fromPart 1
Continuing from where we left off, we enter the arena of crime from the Wild West to the present day. Faria points to the Wild West, as well as Kennesaw and Orlando's gun approaches as ideal while castigating (again) other countries for gun laws that enabled crime. He also lashes out at the medical community (specifically the CDC) for bias against guns, and brings back the gun-free zone tropes, among many others.
The Wild West and US Crime
Faria and his colleague Dr. Robert Young first point to the Wild West, Young stating that:
He easily debunks the myth of the Old West as territories terrorized by non-stop gunfights, when the greatest role of firearms was their use by citizens to suppress outlaw violence.
Ironically, in taking on one common misconception, the two fall into another. While the Old West certainly was not as violent as the countless John Wayne, Gary Cooper, and Clint Eastwood films would have people believe, it was not due to light gun restrictions at all. Adam Winkler, a Professor of Law at UCLA, claims that
Frontier towns — places like Tombstone, Deadwood, and Dodge — actually had the most restrictive gun control laws in the nation. In fact, many of those same cities have far less burdensome gun control today then they did back in the 1800s. ... A check? That’s right. When you entered a frontier town, you were legally required to leave your guns at the stables on the outskirts of town or drop them off with the sheriff, who would give you a token in exchange. You checked your guns then like you’d check your overcoat today at a Boston restaurant in winter. Visitors were welcome, but their guns were not.
Frontier towns like those in Arizona and Kansas actually had stricter laws then than they do today. The result? As many as two murders per year. Winkler even mentions how the first law passed in Dodge City was a gun control law, and that in many frontier towns, only law enforcement could carry weapons around. Young and Faria, however, would have their audiences believe the opposite, that every citizen carried a gun (never mind that most arrests were for illegal gun ownership) and stopped criminals.
Applying the same lessons to the modern day, the doctors mention cases on the local level. In Orlando Florida, for instance, they allege that after a gun training program for women was heavily publicized from 1966-1967, that rape dropped to near-zero levels. Another example is Kennesaw, Georgia, which saw a drastic decline in burglaries after requiring each citizen own a gun in 1982. In both these cases, however, they omit important details. For starters, in Orlando, recorded rapes reached 0 in 1963 (before the program) and declined sharply in 1965, again before the program. As for the 1967 drop, keep in mind that these are recorded rapes. There could be more that occurred. I would mention some more research done by the guys at Science Blogs, but I'm not sure how trustworthy it is, so feel free to look at it and come to your own conclusions.
Kennesaw is also used as an example of why high gun ownership deters crime. In 1982, the city passed a law requiring that every household be armed. Fast forward a few years and burglaries dropped, with an 80% decline by 1985. Of course, what some proponents of the Kennesaw approach forget to mention is that 1981, the year before the law was passed, saw a 75% spike in burglaries. The years before were far lower in burglaries. Could Kennesaw's approach have prevented a burglary increase? Perhaps. But to simply promote this approach when placed into the grand scheme of things is a tad irresponsible.
Gun restrictions and crime abroad
Faria and his fellow doctors then scorn Europe for essentially enabling gun laws. Australia and Europe have seen many mass shootings (the Norway massacre coming to mind), Dr Young stating
Rising violent crime in Great Britain and Europe tells the tale of their increasingly restrictive gun control laws, even to forbidding self-defense.
Really? Because according to the EU, police-recorded murders and robberies have declined by 30% and 34%, respectively, between 2008 and 2018. Another canard that rears it's ugly head is
Australians learned the lessons of indiscriminate, draconian gun control laws the hard way. In 1996, a criminally insane man shot to death 35 people at a Tasmanian resort. The government immediately responded by passing stringent gun control laws, banning most firearms, and ordering their confiscation. More than 640,000 guns were seized from ordinary Australian citizens. As a result, there was a sharp and dramatic increase in violent crime against the disarmed law-abiding citizens, who, in small communities and particularly in rural areas, were now unable to protect themselves from brigands and robbers. That same year in the state of Victoria, for example, there was a 300% increase in homicides committed with firearms. The following year, robberies increased by almost 60% in South Australia. By 1999, assaults had increased by almost 20% in New South Wales. 2 years following the gun ban/confiscation, armed robberies had risen by 73%, unarmed robberies by 28%, kidnappings by 38%, assaults by 17%, and manslaughter by 29%, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics.”
Oh yeah? Because the Harvard Injury Control Research Center found that:
In fact, this chart actually speaks for itself. The claim that Australians were assailed by crime after losing their guns is indeed bullshit. Crime did rise in the immediate aftermath for certain, yet in 2002, more restrictions were passed, and crime declined. You cannot argue that crime grew due to the gun ban when in the long run (and after more restrictions) it is lower than it was before the restrictions.
Swtizerland is used as an example of a safe country where gun ownership is legal. Yet Faria fails to mention some important details. Laws and referendums passed in 1999 and 2011 actually strengthened restrictions. From 1999-2010, Swiss gun laws were passed/amended that resembled those of their European neighbors. Since 1997, people with a "violent or dangerous attitude" are forbidden from owning firearms. Licensing is also implemented.
Another claim that pops up is that Europe has higher mass shooting rates than the US:
In fact, America is not the worst country for mass shootings and does not even make it to the top ten, despite the record number of guns in the hands of Americans. For example France, Norway, Belgium, Finland, and the Czech Republic, all have more deaths from mass shootings than the U.S., and in fact, from 2009 to 2015, the European Union had 27 percent more casualties per mass shooting incidents than the U.S.
This would work, yet Faria likely included the Paris massacre of 2015, committed by members of a terror cell (as opposed to lone wolves). According to gun rights advocate John Lott, the countries listed had higher per capita shooting deaths, not total deaths (except for Norway and France). Of course, this methodology has come under fire. Adam Lankford argues that according to Lott:
the Northern Mariana Islands has a mass shooting rate more than 100 times greater than that of the United States, even though the Northern Mariana Islands had only one qualifying incident from 1998–2012, according to their findings (2019, 66). By Lott and Moody’s view, the smaller the population of the place where a mass shooting occurs, the larger the rate, and presumably the risk. The same logic would suggest that Sutherland Springs, Texas—which is the home of approximately 600 people but saw 26 killed in a terrible 2017 church shooting—must be one of the most dangerous places in the world, rather than the spot of a tragic aberration.
True, Norway and France did have deadlier tragedies than the US, but how often do they happen? To Norway, the very idea of such an incident was unheard of. The 2011 shooting rampage was no doubt infamous in part because of just how out-of-left-field it was.
Lott also earned criticism from Lankford for other issues. While his studies insist that the US has more mass murders, Lankford has published a study pointing out that the US produces more mass killers worldwide, criticizing Lott for placing terrorist organizations (an each member involved in an attack) in the same category as individual mass killers:
Studying attacks by the Lord’s Resistance Army will not help us understand and prevent the next Virginia Tech shooting, or vice versa. If all participants in group violence were counted, that would also result in the inclusion of many people who were far less lethal than public mass shooters who personally killed four or more victims themselves. Should all 28 guardsmen who were reportedly involved in four deaths at Kent State in 1970 be labeled public mass shooters, even though they averaged killing 0.14 victims each? Should they all be put in the same category as mass shooters from Parkland, Sandy Hook, and Las Vegas who personally killed 17, 27, and 58 victims, respectively? To analyze these distinct forms of violence together would be a textbook example of comparing apples and oranges.
Overall, to compare the actions of the Virginia Tech, Parkland, Sandy Hook, and Las Vegas killers, individuals driven by mental illness, infamy, violent personalities, and other factors, to the Lord's Resistance Army, a terrorist organization lead by a religious extremist that is a party to a military conflict, is more than likely to skew the results.
The Medical Establishment and Other claims
One area where Faria, Young, and their ilk also lambast the CDC as partisan and biased. Yet while the CDC before the Dickey Amendment did have some PR issues (and perhaps some honesty troubles). Yet to throw the baby out with the bathwater would be absurd. While the CDC certainly came off as partisan in interviews (such as wanting guns to be as frowned on as smoking), the fact that these interviews in 1994 occurred when the US has a record-high homicide rate omits the context needed. They criticize Arthur Kellerman as fallacious for finding that gun ownership increases likelihood of being killed, yet neglect that scores of peer-reviewed materials that corroborate Kellerman's research. Many of these doctors have also insisted that they are not trying to ban guns, yet DRGO insists the opposite. Instead, they praise the research of Gary Kleck, who is best known for a 1995 study that projected around 2 million defensive gun uses per year. While the CDC's staff were certainly biased, Faria seems too willing to overlook the flaws in Kleck's research. Furthermore, an analysis of Kleck's 1995 study was done by David Hemenway of the Harvard Injury Control Research Center, and it stated that many criminals would have to have been sent to the hospital or testify that they were shot by someone in self-defense. He also recorded multiple uses that were "socially undesirable" and even illegal escalations. If millions of Americans did in fact defend themselves, scores of criminals would be dead or injured, yet interviews found that most were harmed by other criminals.
Also attacked is the use of "children as victims of gun violence" argument. Dr. Young states that such wording is used to elicit sympathy for victims who are often 14+ in age and often involved in gang shootings. Yet from 1980-2000, 42% of juvenile firearm deaths were aged 12 or under. Furthermore, While teens had higher rates, those who were younger also had high chances of death by firearm.For example, 10-year-old victims in this period actually had a 50% chance of death by firearm.
Gun Free-Zones and defensive gun use
Faria throws around some more nonsense, like the claim that television caused a massive crime boom in Canada, South Africa, the USA, etc. However, I'm not really going to cover it here (maybe-emphasis on maybe-in another post, although I'm sure most people will agree with the outcome). Instead, I'm going to focus on Faria's claims regarding Concealed Carry and related subject matter.
I already touched on the claim of millions of Americans use guns in self-defense. As such, my focus will be on the myth of the "gun-free zone" and other defensive gun use myths. Faria points to Chicago as an example, even though the past 10 years have seen these laws loosened and concealed carry legalized, yet crime has spiked (although not without decreasing first in other years). Los Angeles and New York City have stricter laws and for the most part have had lower murder rates. He also insists that before the Civil War, states enabled "constitutional carry". This has partial basis, yet states such as Tennessee, as far back as 1821, penalized people who would "degrade themselves by carrying around a banned weapon such as a pistol". Alabama and Georgia also had gun control legislation enacted as far back as 1837 and 1839, and some have done so for even longer. As far back as colonial times, bans on conceal carry have been in various states. Constitutional carry has always been a part Vermont since it's founding, yet that was the only state, and the concept itself only really experienced a revival in the early 21st century, starting with the state of Alaska in 2003.
Faria argues in favor of the claim that gun-free zones attract killers, blaming tragedies on lack of armed intervention. He celebrates numerous figures for thwarting crimes:
In November 1990, Brian Rigsby and his friend Tom Styer left their home in Atlanta, Georgia, and went camping near...they were assaulted by two madmen, who had been taking cocaine and who fired at them using shotguns killing Styer. Rigsby returned fire with a Ruger Mini-14, a semiautomatic weapon frequently characterized as an assault weapon. It saved his life. In January 1994, Travis Dean Neel was cited as citizen of the year in Houston, Texas. He had saved a police officer and helped the police arrest three dangerous criminals in a gunfight, street shooting incident. Neel had helped stop the potential mass shooters using once again a semiautomatic, so-called assault weapon with a high capacity magazine. He provided cover for the police who otherwise were outgunned and would have been killed. What would have happened if these citizens did not have the “assault weapons” to save their lives and others from these mentally unstable assailants or outright criminals?
Faria's arguments would hold water, yet for each claim of heroism, there are also plenty of failures/overemphasized incidents:
John Parker Jr., an Umpqua student and Air Force veteran, told multiple media outlets that he was armed and on campus at the time of the attack last week. Parker and other student veterans (perhaps also armed) thought about intervening. “Luckily we made the choice not to get involved,” Parker [told MSNBC](mailto:http://www.msnbc.com/all-in/watch/umpqua-student-talks-about-what-he-witnessed-537437763914). “We were quite a distance away from the actual building where it was happening, which could have opened us up to being potential targets ourselves.” Parker’s story changedwhen he spoke to Fox News' Sean Hannity. Instead of saying he “made the choice” not to get involved, Parker said school staff prevented him from helping.... There’s the story of Joel Myrick, an assistant principal who “stopped” a shooting at Pearl High School—but only after it was already over and the shooter was leaving. There’s the story of James Strand, the armed banquet-hall proprietor who “stopped” a shooting at a school dance he was hosting—but only after the student gunman had exhausted all of his ammunition. There’s Nick Meli, a shopper who drew his weapon in self-defense during an attack at Clackamas Mall—but Meli’s story has changed repeatedly, and local police say that his role in causing the shooter’s suicide is “inconclusive” and “speculation.” There’s Mark Kram, who shot a gunman fleeing on a bicycle from the scene of a shooting. Kram also ran down the gunman with a car. There’s Joe Zamudio, who came running to help when he heard the gunfire that injured Gabby Giffords and killed six others in Tucson. But by the time Zamudio was on the scene, unarmed civilians had already tackled and disarmed the perpetrator. Zamudio later said that, in his confusion, he was within seconds of shooting the wrong person. There’s Joseph Robert Wilcox, who drew his concealed handgun in a Las Vegas Walmart to confront gunmen who had executed police officers nearby. Wilcox was himself killed by one of the two assailants, both of whom then engaged police in a firefight. And then there are the fifth wheels—armed civilians who have confronted mass shooters simultaneously with police, such as Allen Crum, who accompanied three law enforcement officers onto the observation deck of the UT Main Building to end the 1966 sniper attack. That doesn’t mean there aren’t also instances of legitimate civilian gun use. The NRA points to phone surveys from the 1990s that suggest Americans might use their guns defensively millions of times every year, though even the most charitable efforts to actually document such incidents come up with fewer than 2,000 per year.
Overall, while there are cases of conceal carry saving lives, there are plenty of stories and anecdotes that contradict the narrative. Furthermore, many incidents also occurred after the criminal had ended their attack. Overall, the idea that there are millions of crimes stopped by gun owners when in fact there are as many as 2,000 recorded instances per year illustrates how flawed the thinking is. One model, even demonstrated that right to carry laws, as analyzed from 1970-2010, did not help stop most crimes. The As for factors that do lead to mass shootings, the FBI found that most attackers had a relationship to the area they attacked. Out of 23 workplace killers, 22 were current/former employees. School attackers yielded similar results. In fact, the study even concluded that more shootings (like the aforementioned Tucson) were stopped by unarmed civilians than by armed ones. Another study found that 36% of such incidents were often during the commission of another felony.
Another popular myth that gets parroted is that “Since 1950, 97.8 Percent of Mass Shootings have occurred in “Gun-Free Zones”. This, however, would include the aforementioned Oregon school, even though individuals with a state permit could bring them on-campus. Some criminologists disagree:
Klarevas uses three definitions: he refers to "gun-free zones" as places where civilians are not allowed to carry guns, and there aren’t armed personnel stationed on the property. He calls "gun-restricting zones" as places where civilians can’t carry guns, yet armed security is routinely present -- such as military facilities or certain college campuses. He refers to places that allow civilians to carry guns as "gun-allowing zones." Using these categories, Klarevas examined 111 shootings since 1966 in which six or more people had been killed in each incident -- regardless of whether it occurred in a public or private location or if it was in the commission of another crime. He found 13 took place in gun-free zones and five took place in gun-restricting zones. That means that the majority occurred in areas where there was no evidence that private guns were prohibited. Since Klarevas includes mass shootings in private residences or during the commission of another crime, that means that he counts several additional incidents that aren’t factored in by Lott. ... Lott says that the shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon was in a gun-free zone and points to a school policy that bans possession of firearms "except as expressly authorized by law or college regulations." Umpqua Community College spokeswoman Anne Marie Levis previously told PolitiFact Floridathe school’s gun-free policy didn’t apply to students with a valid permit. "UCC was never designated as a ‘gun-free zone’ by any signage or policy," she said. "Umpqua Community College does comply with state law by allowing students with concealed carry licenses to bring firearms on campus."
Klaveras certainly is worth debating as a trustworthy source (for instance, he cites the Waco diner shooting of 2015 even though it was two gangs, not one or two people). However, his research was able to point out that the gun-free zone canard was just that: an empty canard. Klaveras points to Ft Hood and the Washington Navy Yard, both locations where armed guards were present, as examples of mass shootings where defenders carried guns. Peter Langmann, a psychologist who studies these kinds of tragedies, has pointed out that most of the perpetrators often do not care about their own well-being. As such, simply removing gun-free zone signs would not have any impact whatsoever. Indeed, as mentioned before, the FBI found that most shooters have some link with the location they attack, with most workplace or school shooters being formecurrent staff/students. In fact, for all the claims made of firearms being an "equalizer" for women, it was found that 43% of women killed in workplace shootings in 2015 were murdered by intimate partners/spouses, while men made up only 2% of the victims of such perpetrators. The study even went so far as to suggest a positive correlation between increased homicide and RTC laws.
Faria cites controversial criminologist John Lott in his claim that right-to-carry laws are responsible for crime drops. Is this the case? One study concluded that RTC laws stopping crime as calculated by Lott were discredited by a look at year-by-year crime rates. While rape certainly declined, robberies, murders, and assaults either increased or went back-and-forth. Some states saw a decline in murder, yet other crimes did not decline (some even increased after RTC was opened in several states). Another study, this time in the American Journal of Public Health, found that states with RTC had a higher rate of workplace homicides from 1992-2017 than those that did not have such laws.
Faria and Young also try to point out that other means of murder can lead to countless deaths:
Do they have any grasp on how blunt force trauma can be as or more deadly as gun and knife attacks? ... If they can’t do it with guns, they do it with explosives (Oklahoma City), trucks (Nice), airplanes (9/11), poison (Tokyo), arson (Kyoto) or any other of a thousand other ways.
First off, a look at US murders from 1965-2012 demonstrates that homicide by shooting made up 57.2-60% of all deaths. Blunt force trauma took up a fraction of all deaths for each year, not once reaching 1,000 deaths. Guns, by comparison, killed 5,000 at a minimum. Furthermore, the events Young lists lack context. Oklahoma City, Nice, 9/11, and Tokyo were all done by terrorists/cults. Aside from lone wolves (Nice and OK City), each group was organized, with a clear ideology. Furthermore, Oklahoma City and 9/11 both lead to extra security measures to prevent a repeat, and a there are plenty of other terrorists who used firearms to attack (Orlando, San Bernardino, Ft Hood). From 2002-2014, 85% of deaths in domestic terror attacks in the US were with guns. What does that say about the issue?
Terrorism
Another approach that's used is to argue that other means of murder exist. Terrorist attacks are cited:
Dr. Faria states, “Before closing on the issue of Islamic terrorism, a word should be said about the most recent incident in New York City, which underscores not only the increasing new terroristic threat to American cities but also the use of cars and trucks to plow into unsuspecting crowds with mass casualties of innocent civilians. A vehicle driven into a crowd is becoming the terrorists’ weapon of choice in Europe, and the sanguinary practice seems to be taking hold in the U.S. as well. “The Halloween truck attack on October 31, 2017, in Manhattan, a few blocks from the site of the Twin Towers [where the largest terrorist attack in the US history occurred on September 11, 2001], is the most recent egregious example. The atrocity also emphasizes the switch from mass shootings caused by deranged citizens to deliberate jihad by foreign and domestic Islamic terrorists. The courts’ disapproval of President Trump’s ban on immigration from seven countries with strong ties to terrorism has permitted dangerous individuals to continue to enter the country.During the annual Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013, two homemade pressure cooker bombs detonated ... killing three people and injuring several hundred others, including 16 who lost limbs… Three days later, the FBI released images of two suspects who were later identified as Chechen Kyrgyzstani-American brothers… They killed an MIT policeman, kidnapped a man in his car, and had a shootout with the police in nearby Watertown, during which two officers were severely injured, one of whom died a year later. One brother terrorist died. The other brother stated that they were motivated by extremist Islamist beliefs… Will banning guns stop these crimes?
Faria's attempts to distract with the Manhattan and Boston terror attacks neglect to mention other factoids. For instance, is he seriously forgetting how many extremists used guns in attacks on the US? Did he forget about Orlando and Ft Hood? Is he seriously citing San Bernardino one moment, then forgetting about it later? And look at extremists of other ideologies, such as those in Dallas, El Paso, and Charleston. Second of all, he is literally blaming US courts for the Manhattan rampage, never mind the fact that the perpetrator in question was not from a country impacted by the travel ban? Does he realize that most Islamic extremists in this country since 9/11 (especially those who have actually killed people) are overwhelmingly from countries not on Trump's travel ban list but were born here or came as children/radicalized here? The Cato Institute has found that more terrorists in the US came from Croatia than they did from any country on Trump's travel ban list, and yet he claims that the ban would stop terrorist attacks.
Conclusion
DRGO's well-intended efforts to defend gun ownership and take on various reasons for opposing it certainly pose a mighty gauntlet, yet at the end of the day, they are superficially researched and rely on completely dismissing any opposing views. Faria, Young, and others are too absolutist in their arguments, refusing to see any gray areas. Arguing that right-to-carry laws reduce violent crime is not totally untrue, but neither is it always true. Looking through a case-by-case approach is what arguably makes more sense. Faria, Young, and others focus on details that are convenient, yet end up failing to produce an honest picture of the situation. Trends, situations, context, and certain details are all glossed over. To put it bluntly, the research is dishonest, flawed, and prone to non-sequiturs.

2020.08.24 22:32 djunderdawg85 True Diary of a Ghost Hunter

There are many places in El Paso, Texas that have stories of Paranormal Activity. History in El Paso has stories from the legendary Pacho Villa and Billy the Kid. But growing up in “El Chuco” or “The 915” has its share of legends and tales. The many famous locations that are known here in El Paso, Texas are Concordia Cemetery, El Paso High, Plaza Theater, and many more. One location not many people know about is Southwestern General Hospital located near Cotton Road.
This Info is found on the website and describes the history of the Hospital.
SOUTHWEST GENERAL HOSPITAL ALSO KNOWN AS “LTAC” WAS FOUNDED IN 1910 AND WAS PURCHASED BY DR. HOMAN. HE PURCHASED THIS BECAUSE IN THE 1900'S THERE WAS A DISEASE CALLED TUBERCULOSIS. MANY PEOPLE WERE GETTING SICK. DR. HOMAN THAN RENAMED THE HOSPITAL ALBERT BALDWIN SANATORIUM AND WAS GOING TO REMODEL IT BUT THEN THE STATE HAD GONE INTO NEGLECT. A FEW YEARS LATER DIDITERS FROM THE ORDER AT CONCORDIA, KANSAS REOPENED IT AS ST. JOSEPH IN AUGUST 20,1927. LATER THEN, WHEN THEY HAD REOPENED IT DR. HOMAN HAD COME BACK AND SO DID HIS PARTNER DR. CRIMEN. LATER THEY STARTED REMODELING IT AND EVENTUALLY NAMED IT SOUTHWEST GENERAL HOSPITAL. THIS HOSPITAL WAS USED FOR REGULAR NEEDS. SOUTHWEST GENERALHOSPITAL HAD FIRST RECEIVED THEIR FIRST PATIENT IN JANUARY 25, 1937. MANY YEARS LATER THEY NAMED IT THE EL PASO LTAC. LTAC MEANS LONG TERM ACUTE CARE. NOW THEY USE THE HOSPITAL FOR GENRAL NEEDS BUT MOSTLY FOR PEOPLE THAT CAN'T CARE FOR THEMSELVES OR THERE ABOUT TO PASS.
In 2009, I was interested in the paranormal due to the fact that I had many paranormal experiences growing up. I found a website that held “Ghost Tours” at the old “Southwestern General Hospital”. I was excited and ready to go on a ghost hunt. The group that held the ghost tour was named G.H.O.S.T or Ghost Hunters of South Texas. The group was professional and they used many of the items that paranormal researchers used at the time. Before the tour they showed us proof that they have captured while investigating the property. EVP’s included a little boy saying “Play with me please.” and a woman with a southern accent responding to questions. The woman is said to be a nurse seen on the 4th floor by security guards. The woman is said to be seen dress in an old time, nurse attire. After the tour the group said they were having openings for new members. And the new members would be tested and would be considered in maybe being a part of the new team. I was quick to join and try out. I made the team. The team would have private group ghost hunts so we had the building to ourself. The 3rd floor was used as hospice type of area. The building has 4 floors. The 1st, 2nd, and 4th floor were left abandoned and look like a scene out of a horror movie. Hospital beds lay in rooms dusty and unused. Many papers and nurse logs lay on the desks and had dates from 1995. I even found a death log that had names and dates. The most active areas were the 4th floor and the 2nd floor. The 4th floor had a baby nursery and many rooms that were once used for families that would welcome new babies. One evp that was caught on that area was one of a crying baby. At the time that the evp was caught there was no babies in the building and it was after 12 midnight when it was caught. Also, on the 4th floor there was a long hallway with empty patent rooms. In that hallway shadows were always seen running or moving. The 2nd floor had old surgery rooms with no windows. Video evidence of a man screaming was caught in this area. Also, many shadow figures were seen in this area. When doing research on deaths in the building it came up that a nurse was crushed to death when a malfunction with the elevator happened years ago. During the time I was a part of this group we investigated in this building many times. I also led ghost tours in the building with other members. I witnessed shadows, disembodied voices, screams, and one time heard a female humming a song only to find that room empty and dark. Videos of doors opening on their own with no wind or people in the building. Also, the third floor had employees that would see things and hear things. Patients also complained of a kid running in their room or a man standing over their bed just looking at them only to disappear. Over the years I gained experience and loved what I did. As a group we investigated many places such as schools, homes and cemeteries in El Paso. We also got to investigate the old ASARCO SMELTER before it was demolished several years later. I got to ghost hunt with people from GHOST HUNTERS and GHOST HUNTERS INTERNATIONAL. I met many celebrities and the group had them take thier own personal ghost tours. It was fun and I grew a thick skin for being scared of anything that goes bump in the dark. One of my favorite places to investigate was Southwestern General Hospital. I never believed in being followed home. One night after investigating I was at my apartment eating on my couch and watching tv. I had my hallway light on near the front door that was visible form where I was sitting. All of a sudden from the corner of my eye I saw a shadow of a person on the wall near the door. I turned and saw the shadow in full form. It was about six foot tall and all black. Then one second later the shadow moved as if running down my hallway to my bedroom. I froze in horror thinking somebody was in my apartment. I got up and walked to my bedroom. Nobody was there. I searched the whole house. Then I thought to myself, “Maybe I'm going crazy?” I soon went to bed a few minutes later. It was about 3:20 am when I felt my bed shake. I woke up to my sheets being pulled off of me very slowly. I tried to move and I couldn’t. My sheets slid very slowly off me towards the floor. I couldn’t move and I started to hear growling in my right ear. From the corner of my eye I could see something moving near my head on the right of me. It was on my pillow. I could only see it from the peripheral vision that it had hair. It was hairy and brown. If I can compare it to something, I would say Chewbacca from Star Wars type hair. It was moving and the growling continued. I tried to move my arm and could only move my fingers. My eyes started to water up with tears. The blanket was still being pulled off me little by little until it hit the floor and I was no longer covered by my sheet. I felt the hairy thing moving right next to me and the growling grew louder. Then all of a sudden, I was able to sit up I turned and looked to see what was next to me. The hairy thing was gone. But I could see the imprint of where it sat on the pillow next to me. It was the size of full-grown cat. Then I looked around the room to gather my sanity. My sheet was on the floor and my eyes were still watery. I asked myself is that sleep paralysis? I found it hard to sleep that night due to the fact that I lived alone in that apartment. The next day I had a girl over to my apartment that I was seeing from school. I was playing PlayStation and she asked if she could take a nap in my bed. I said yes. She went to my bed and fell asleep. Twenty minutes later she came back to my living room in crying. She said, "I have to leave now!” I asked her what had happened and what she said shocked me. She said that something shook the bed and woke her up. She couldn’t move and that’s when the growling started in her ear. Then the bed went down as if somebody lied down next to her. She tried to scream for me and couldn’t. Then she felt as if somebody was breathing on her neck as the growling grew louder. She said it lasted about 2 minutes and she was finally able to move. Once she was able to move, she ran to me in the living room. After she explained what happened she grabbed her stuff and left out my door. I didn’t tell her what had happened to me the night before. But for the same thing to happen to her was enough proof that something wasn’t right. I couldn’t explain what was happening. First thing that came to mind was that something followed me home. After a few days all the activity stopped. Only when I would go on investigations, I would see shadows in my apartment and then it would just go away. I loved what I did and the only time I feared the paranormal is this moment. I no longer ghost hunt and the group no longer gets together. Southwest General Hospital was purchased and is now remodeled and is in use. I can only imagine what the employees of LTAC go through by being in that building. Every now and then I drive down Cotton and pass the building. I miss the days of being a part G.H.O.S.T-El-Paso. If you are ever in El Paso after stopping at Chicos Tacos be sure and pass by the old building by the star on the mountain formally known as Southwest General Hospital

2020.08.22 21:51 silv3rbull8 Politics: The Atlantic Op Ed: Democrats’ Unprecedented Embrace of Gun Control

Democrats’ Unprecedented Embrace of Gun Control

The party is betting that support for restrictions is more likely to attract moderate voters than turn them off.
Elaine Godfrey August 20, 2020Gabby GiffordsBloomberg / Getty
On a cold February evening, weeks before the full force of the coronavirus pandemic hit the United States, a few dozen Mike Bloomberg supporters milled around the airy living room of a home in the genteel Washington, D.C., suburb of McLean, Virginia. The voters, most of them white, described themselves as moderates or former Republicans. They explained to me that, more than anything, they want stability and civility back in national politics, and they tut-tutted any mention of Bernie Sanders and his plans for radical change. But one issue—the one they’d come to hear about—got them really riled up: gun control.
“He’s laid out an assault-weapons ban for new purchases,” a man named Bill, a managing partner at a small investment firm and a former intelligence officer, told me excitedly, when I asked why he backed Bloomberg for president. (Bill declined to give his last name for privacy reasons.) “And there absolutely should be universal background checks,” he continued. “It’s like, that’s a no-brainer—come on.”
This is the new normal in the Democratic Party: Moderate voters not only support gun-control legislation, but have begun to use the issue as a litmus test. In 2010, roughly 20 percent of all federal candidates who received “A” ratings from the National Rifle Association were Democrats; by the 2018 midterms, that number was down to less than 2 percent, according to Everytown for Gun Safety, a nonprofit advocacy organization founded in 2013 and largely funded by Bloomberg. Which means that Democrats in 2020 are embracing gun control in an unprecedented way, betting that their support is more likely to attract voters than turn them away—especially in the suburban districts that are quickly becoming central to the party map.
Nowhere has this shift been clearer than at this year’s Democratic convention, which was expressly designed to appeal to a bipartisan viewership and where gun control has been a central focus. On Tuesday, Representative Veronica Escobar of Texas spoke about the 2019 shooting in El Paso that left 23 people dead. A montage about the nation’s growing gun-violence-prevention movement was narrated by Emma González, who survived the Parkland, Florida, high-school shooting in 2018. Former Representative Gabby Giffords of Arizona, who was shot in the head in 2011 and who spent months relearning how to speak, called for reform in a moving speech last night. Bloomberg is likely to make similar calls when he addresses TV audiences tonight.
Four years ago, Hillary Clinton’s campaign welcomed mothers who had lost children to gun violence to speak at her nominating convention, the first remarks of their kind. But there were no such convention segments or panels on gun control as recently as 2012. “What people are seeing is gun safety not only mobilizes, but it also persuades the all-important independent and suburban voters who will likely decide the 2020 election,” says John Feinblatt, Everytown’s president.
Support for stricter gun-control measures, such as universal background checks and a ban on assault weapons, has grown stronger among Americans in the past decade, as a series of mass shootings has rattled the country. In that time, the Democratic coalition changed significantly too. Moderate Democrats once represented rural swaths of the country, where guns were popular and restricting their use was not. Today, the profile of the average moderate Democrat looks very different: She represents a suburban constituency that overwhelmingly favors gun control, and whose politics are more aligned with those of voters in nearby blue cities than those of voters in rural America. Democrats are “able to be a lot more aggressive on these kinds of issues, since there’s no longer any tension within the Democratic coalition,” says Lanae Erickson, a senior vice president at the center-left think tank Third Way, which has encouraged Democratic candidates to run on gun reforms. Now, “instead of Bart Stupak, you have Abigail Spanberger.”
Gun control was indeed a core campaign message for Spanberger, the Democratic representative who defeated the Republican incumbent Dave Brat two years ago in a suburban district near Richmond, Virginia, that had long been represented by the GOP. It was also central to the campaign platform of Jennifer Wexton, Spanberger’s fellow Virginian and fellow freshman, who flipped her D.C.-adjacent district from red to blue. By 2019, polling showed that gun control was the top issue for voters in their home state; that fall, Democrats managed to gain control of the state legislature and immediately passed a huge slate of gun reforms.
Moderate Democrats have run and won on gun control in red states too. The gun-control activist Lucy McBath, whose son was shot and killed in 2012, now occupies Newt Gingrich’s old seat outside Atlanta. Like Escobar, Representatives Colin Allred and Lizzie Fletcher talked up gun control in their suburban, formerly Republican districts in Texas.
The Senate Democratic caucus is no exception to these changes. This year, almost all of the Democratic candidates in the most competitive races have sought the “Moms Demand Action Gun Sense Candidate distinction,” a rating from Feinblatt’s organization that identifies a candidate as supportive of gun legislation. “People have not noticed how much the Democratic coalition has consolidated around this,” Erickson told me. There may be an assumption “that part of the Democratic coalition is holding us back on this. But that’s no longer true.”
Leaders in the gun-control movement expect to push a Biden-Harris administration to pass legislation requiring comprehensive background checks, and a federal red-flag law that would permit authorities to remove firearms from Americans considered a threat to themselves or others, Feinblatt told me. Maybe, he added, the administration will even revive discussions about an assault-weapons ban.
But like much of the party’s agenda, any legislative progress on gun control almost certainly depends on an overwhelming Democratic victory in November. The base may be more unified than ever on the issue. Its lawmakers might be too. But absent a Democratic wave—and perhaps the end of the Senate filibuster—winning the White House won’t be enough.
Bloomberg’s presidential campaign folded shortly after that February house party in McLean. Watching the convention last night, I thought about another voter I met there: Rebecca Boldrick Hogg, a retired teacher and the mother of David Hogg, a young gun-control activist who, like González, survived the Parkland shooting. David, Boldrick Hogg explained at the time, was all in for Sanders, but she couldn’t abide the senator’s once-moderate record on guns. Her son was willing to accept that Sanders’s political positions had evolved, but she couldn’t bring herself to forgive him for it. Her vote, like so many others’, hinges on where a candidate stands on guns.

2020.08.22 04:28 djunderdawg85 Diary of a Ghost Hunter

There are many places in El Paso, Texas that have stories of Paranormal Activity. History in El Paso has stories from the legendary Pacho Villa and Billy the Kid. But growing up in “El Chuco” or “The 915” has its share of legends and tales. The many famous locations that are known here in El Paso, Texas are Concordia Cemetery, El Paso High, Plaza Theater, and many more. One location not many people know about is Southwestern General Hospital located near Cotton Road.
This Info is found on the website and describes the history of the Hospital.
SOUTHWEST GENERAL HOSPITAL ALSO KNOWN AS “LTAC” WAS FOUNDED IN 1910 AND WAS PURCHASED BY DR. HOMAN. HE PURCHASED THIS BECAUSE IN THE 1900'S THERE WAS A DISEASE CALLED TUBERCULOSIS. MANY PEOPLE WERE GETTING SICK. DR. HOMAN THAN RENAMED THE HOSPITAL ALBERT BALDWIN SANATORIUM AND WAS GOING TO REMODEL IT BUT THEN THE STATE HAD GONE INTO NEGLECT. A FEW YEARS LATER DIDITERS FROM THE ORDER AT CONCORDIA, KANSAS REOPENED IT AS ST. JOSEPH IN AUGUST 20,1927. LATER THEN, WHEN THEY HAD REOPENED IT DR. HOMAN HAD COME BACK AND SO DID HIS PARTNER DR. CRIMEN. LATER THEY STARTED REMODELING IT AND EVENTUALLY NAMED IT SOUTHWEST GENERAL HOSPITAL. THIS HOSPITAL WAS USED FOR REGULAR NEEDS. SOUTHWEST GENERALHOSPITAL HAD FIRST RECEIVED THEIR FIRST PATIENT IN JANUARY 25, 1937. MANY YEARS LATER THEY NAMED IT THE EL PASO LTAC. LTAC MEANS LONG TERM ACUTE CARE. NOW THEY USE THE HOSPITAL FOR GENRAL NEEDS BUT MOSTLY FOR PEOPLE THAT CAN'T CARE FOR THEMSELVES OR THERE ABOUT TO PASS.
In 2009, I was interested in the paranormal due to the fact that I had many paranormal experiences growing up. I found a website that held “Ghost Tours” at the old “Southwestern General Hospital”. I was excited and ready to go on a ghost hunt. The group that held the ghost tour was named G.H.O.S.T or Ghost Hunters of South Texas. The group was professional and they used many of the items that paranormal researchers used at the time. Before the tour they showed us proof that they have captured while investigating the property. EVP’s included a little boy saying “Play with me please.” and a woman with a southern accent responding to questions. The woman is said to be a nurse seen on the 4th floor by security guards. The woman is said to be seen dress in an old time, nurse attire. After the tour the group said they were having openings for new members. And the new members would be tested and would be considered in maybe being a part of the new team. I was quick to join and try out. I made the team. The team would have private group ghost hunts so we had the building to ourself. The 3rd floor was used as hospice type of area. The building has 4 floors. The 1st, 2nd, and 4th floor were left abandoned and look like a scene out of a horror movie. Hospital beds lay in rooms dusty and unused. Many papers and nurse logs lay on the desks and had dates from 1995. I even found a death log that had names and dates. The most active areas were the 4th floor and the 2nd floor. The 4th floor had a baby nursery and many rooms that were once used for families that would welcome new babies. One evp that was caught on that area was one of a crying baby. At the time that the evp was caught there was no babies in the building and it was after 12 midnight when it was caught. Also, on the 4th floor there was a long hallway with empty patent rooms. In that hallway shadows were always seen running or moving. The 2nd floor had old surgery rooms with no windows. Video evidence of a man screaming was caught in this area. Also, many shadow figures were seen in this area. When doing research on deaths in the building it came up that a nurse was crushed to death when a malfunction with the elevator happened years ago. During the time I was a part of this group we investigated in this building many times. I also led ghost tours in the building with other members. I witnessed shadows, disembodied voices, screams, and one time heard a female humming a song only to find that room empty and dark. Videos of doors opening on their own with no wind or people in the building. Also, the third floor had employees that would see things and hear things. Patients also complained of a kid running in their room or a man standing over their bed just looking at them only to disappear. Over the years I gained experience and loved what I did. As a group we investigated many places such as schools, homes and cemeteries in El Paso. We also got to investigate the old ASARCO SMELTER before it was demolished several years later. I got to ghost hunt with people from GHOST HUNTERS and GHOST HUNTERS INTERNATIONAL. I met many celebrities and the group had them take thier own personal ghost tours. It was fun and I grew a thick skin for being scared of anything that goes bump in the dark. One of my favorite places to investigate was Southwestern General Hospital. I never believed in being followed home. One night after investigating I was at my apartment eating on my couch and watching tv. I had my hallway light on near the front door that was visible form where I was sitting. All of a sudden from the corner of my eye I saw a shadow of a person on the wall near the door. I turned and saw the shadow in full form. It was about six foot tall and all black. Then one second later the shadow moved as if running down my hallway to my bedroom. I froze in horror thinking somebody was in my apartment. I got up and walked to my bedroom. Nobody was there. I searched the whole house. Then I thought to myself, “Maybe I'm going crazy?” I soon went to bed a few minutes later. It was about 3:20 am when I felt my bed shake. I woke up to my sheets being pulled off of me very slowly. I tried to move and I couldn’t. My sheets slid very slowly off me towards the floor. I couldn’t move and I started to hear growling in my right ear. From the corner of my eye I could see something moving near my head on the right of me. It was on my pillow. I could only see it from the peripheral vision that it had hair. It was hairy and brown. If I can compare it to something, I would say Chewbacca from Star Wars type hair. It was moving and the growling continued. I tried to move my arm and could only move my fingers. My eyes started to water up with tears. The blanket was still being pulled off me little by little until it hit the floor and I was no longer covered by my sheet. I felt the hairy thing moving right next to me and the growling grew louder. Then all of a sudden, I was able to sit up I turned and looked to see what was next to me. The hairy thing was gone. But I could see the imprint of where it sat on the pillow next to me. It was the size of full-grown cat. Then I looked around the room to gather my sanity. My sheet was on the floor and my eyes were still watery. I asked myself is that sleep paralysis? I found it hard to sleep that night due to the fact that I lived alone in that apartment. The next day I had a girl over to my apartment that I was seeing from school. I was playing PlayStation and she asked if she could take a nap in my bed. I said yes. She went to my bed and fell asleep. Twenty minutes later she came back to my living room in crying. She said, "I have to leave now!” I asked her what had happened and what she said shocked me. She said that something shook the bed and woke her up. She couldn’t move and that’s when the growling started in her ear. Then the bed went down as if somebody lied down next to her. She tried to scream for me and couldn’t. Then she felt as if somebody was breathing on her neck as the growling grew louder. She said it lasted about 2 minutes and she was finally able to move. Once she was able to move, she ran to me in the living room. After she explained what happened she grabbed her stuff and left out my door. I didn’t tell her what had happened to me the night before. But for the same thing to happen to her was enough proof that something wasn’t right. I couldn’t explain what was happening. First thing that came to mind was that something followed me home. After a few days all the activity stopped. Only when I would go on investigations, I would see shadows in my apartment and then it would just go away. I loved what I did and the only time I feared the paranormal is this moment. I no longer ghost hunt and the group no longer gets together. Southwest General Hospital was purchased and is now remodeled and is in use. I can only imagine what the employees of LTAC go through by being in that building. Every now and then I drive down Cotton and pass the building. I miss the days of being a part G.H.O.S.T-El-Paso. If you are ever in El Paso after stopping at Chicos Tacos be sure and pass by the old building by the star on the mountain formally known as Southwest General Hospital

There are many places in El Paso, Texas that have stories of Paranormal Activity. History in El Paso has stories from the legendary Pacho Villa and Billy the Kid. But growing up in “El Chuco” or “The 915” has its share of legends and tales. The many famous locations that are known here in El Paso, Texas are Concordia Cemetery, El Paso High, Plaza Theater, and many more. One location not many people know about is Southwestern General Hospital located near Cotton Road.
SOUTHWEST GENERAL HOSPITAL ALSO KNOWN AS “LTAC” WAS FOUNDED IN 1910 AND WAS PURCHASED BY DR. HOMAN. HE PURCHASED THIS BECAUSE IN THE 1900'S THERE WAS A DISEASE CALLED TUBERCULOSIS. MANY PEOPLE WERE GETTING SICK. DR. HOMAN THAN RENAMED THE HOSPITAL ALBERT BALDWIN SANATORIUM AND WAS GOING TO REMODEL IT BUT THEN THE STATE HAD GONE INTO NEGLECT. A FEW YEARS LATER DIDITERS FROM THE ORDER AT CONCORDIA, KANSAS REOPENED IT AS ST. JOSEPH IN AUGUST 20,1927. LATER THEN, WHEN THEY HAD REOPENED IT DR. HOMAN HAD COME BACK AND SO DID HIS PARTNER DR. CRIMEN. LATER THEY STARTED REMODELING IT AND EVENTUALLY NAMED IT SOUTHWEST GENERAL HOSPITAL. THIS HOSPITAL WAS USED FOR REGULAR NEEDS. SOUTHWEST GENERALHOSPITAL HAD FIRST RECEIVED THEIR FIRST PATIENT IN JANUARY 25, 1937. MANY YEARS LATER THEY NAMED IT THE EL PASO LTAC. LTAC MEANS LONG TERM ACUTE CARE. NOW THEY USE THE HOSPITAL FOR GENRAL NEEDS BUT MOSTLY FOR PEOPLE THAT CAN'T CARE FOR THEMSELVES OR THERE ABOUT TO PASS.
In 2009, I was interested in the paranormal due to the fact that I had many paranormal experiences growing up. I found a website that held “Ghost Tours” at the old “Southwestern General Hospital”. I was excited and ready to go on a ghost hunt. The group that held the ghost tour was named G.H.O.S.T or Ghost Hunters of South Texas. The group was professional and they used many of the items that paranormal researchers used at the time. Before the tour they showed us proof that they have captured while investigating the property. EVP’s included a little boy saying “Play with me please.” and a woman with a southern accent responding to questions. The woman is said to be a nurse seen on the 4th floor by security guards. The woman is said to be seen dress in an old time, nurse attire. After the tour the group said they were having openings for new members. And the new members would be tested and would be considered in maybe being a part of the new team. I was quick to join and try out. I made the team. The team would have private group ghost hunts so we had the building to ourself. The 3rd floor was used as hospice type of area. The building has 4 floors. The 1st, 2nd, and 4th floor were left abandoned and look like a scene out of a horror movie. Hospital beds lay in rooms dusty and unused. Many papers and nurse logs lay on the desks and had dates from 1995. I even found a death log that had names and dates. The most active areas were the 4th floor and the 2nd floor. The 4th floor had a baby nursery and many rooms that were once used for families that would welcome new babies. One evp that was caught on that area was one of a crying baby. At the time that the evp was caught there was no babies in the building and it was after 12 midnight when it was caught. Also, on the 4th floor there was a long hallway with emty patent rooms. In that hallway shadows were always seen running or moving. The 2nd floor had old surgery rooms with no windows. Video evidence of a man screaming was caught in this area. Also, many shadow figures were seen in this area. When doing research on deaths in the building it came up that a nurse was crushed to death when a malfunction with the elevator happened years ago. During the time I was a part of this group we investigated in this building many times. I also led ghost tours in the building with other members. I witnessed shadows, disembodied voices, screams, and one time heard a female humming a song only to find that room empty and dark. Videos of doors opening on their own with no wind or people in the building. Also, the third floor had employees that would see things and hear things. Patients also complained of a kid running in their room or a man standing over their bed just looking at them only to disappear. Over the years I gained experience and loved what I did. As a group we investigated many places such as schools, homes and cemeteries in El Paso. We also got to investigate the old ASARCO SMELTER before it was demolished several years later. I got to ghost hunt with people from GHOST HUNTERS and GHOST HUNTERS INTERNATIONAL. I met many celebrities and the group had them take thier own personal ghost tours. It was fun and I grew a thick skin for being scared of anything that goes bump in the dark. One of my favorite places to investigate was Southwestern General Hospital. I never believed in being followed home. One night after investigating I was at my apartment eating on my couch and watching tv. I had my hallway light on near the front door that was visible form where I was sitting. All of a sudden from the corner of my eye I saw a shadow of a person on the wall near the door. I turned and saw the shadow in full form. It was about six foot tall and all black. Then one second later the shadow moved as if running down my hallway to my bedroom. I froze in horror thinking somebody was in my apartment. I got up and walked to my bedroom. Nobody was there. I searched the whole house. Then I thought to myself, “Maybe I'm going crazy?” I soon went to bed a few minutes later. It was about 3:20 am when I felt my bed shake. I woke up to my sheets being pulled off of me very slowly. I tried to move and I couldn’t. My sheets slid very slowly off me towards the floor. I couldn’t move and I started to hear growling in my right ear. From the corner of my eye I could see something moving near my head on the right of me. It was on my pillow. I could only see it from the peripheral vision that it had hair. It was hairy and brown. If I can compare it to something, I would say Chewbacca from Star Wars type hair. It was moving and the growling continued. I tried to move my arm and could only move my fingers. My eyes started to water up with tears. The blanket was still being pulled off me little by little until it hit the floor and I was no longer covered by my sheet. I felt the hairy thing moving right next to me and the growling grew louder. Then all of a sudden, I was able to sit up I turned and looked to see what was next to me. The hairy thing was gone. But I could see the imprint of where it sat on the pillow next to me. It was the size of full-grown cat. Then I looked around the room to gather my sanity. My sheet was on the floor and my eyes were still watery. I asked myself is that sleep paralysis? I found it hard to sleep that night due to the fact that I lived alone in that apartment. The next day I had a girl over to my apartment that I was seeing from school. I was playing PlayStation and she asked if she could take a nap in my bed. I said yes. She went to my bed and fell asleep. Twenty minutes later she came back to my living room in crying. She said, "I have to leave now!” I asked her what had happened and what she said shocked me. She said that something shook the bed and woke her up. She couldn’t move and that’s when the growling started in her ear. Then the bed went down as if somebody lied down next to her. She tried to scream for me and couldn’t. Then she felt as if somebody was breathing on her neck as the growling grew louder. She said it lasted about 2 minutes and she was finally able to move. Once she was able to move, she ran to me in the living room. After she explained what happened she grabbed her stuff and left out my door. I didn’t tell her what had happened to me the night before. But for the same thing to happen to her was enough proof that something wasn’t right. I couldn’t explain what was happening. First thing that came to mind was that something followed me home. After a few days all the activity stopped. Only when I would go on investigations, I would see shadows in my apartment and then it would just go away.

Southwest General Hospital was purchased and is now remodeled and is in use. I can only imagine what the employees of LTAC go through by being in that building. Every now and then I drive down Cotton and pass the building. I miss the days of being a part G.H.O.S.T-El-Paso.

2020.08.06 23:46 badpauly Significant Activist Hedge Fund Activity (Last 7 Days)

These are the latest Schedule 13D forms filed by activist investors in the last 7 days. Activist investors are investors that make an investment with the intention of influencing management in some way. There is evidence that following activist investors into investments can generate excess returns. Schedule 13G forms, in contrast, are filed by significant investors with no intention of influencing management (such as Index funds).
There is always a lot of interest in insider trades, but what a lot of people probably don't realize is that hedge fund activity is probably more predictive of future returns than insider activity. The reason is that hedge funds (a) have large research budgets, and (b) have a choice where to put their money. In contract, insiders have no choice where to put their money, but only when to time their transactions.

New Filings

This table lists new 13D filings in the last week. A new filing does not necessarily indicate a new position, as investors frequently accumulate in advance before reaching the filing threshold.

LeBron James Family Foundation, Old El Paso partner for ‘Taco Tuesdays’ at I Promise Village in Akron submitted by JohnBrownsAngryBalls to AkronOH [link] [comments]


2020.08.04 00:18 Nohomobutimgay One year ago today my abuelito was killed and my abuelita was wounded in the El Paso shooting. Radiohead have gotten me through tough times in the past and today I am again so grateful that they can carry me through the day.

Radiohead got me through a rough patch in grad school. Today, they are helping me grieve, yet stay self-possessed, as I remember how my day--and those of the families of the other 22 victims--were crushed as we learned that our loved ones were killed and/or injured in a shooting on a Saturday morning in 2019.
I was a rather late fan of Radiohead (circa TKoL) but when I fell for them, I fell hard. I am a melody person myself versus a lyrics person. Radiohead's music just flows into veins and captivates me. I like to think that Thom York's lyrics are impossible to understand half the time because the lyrics are his and he is leaving the interpretation and emotional outcome of his songs' overall composition to us. To me, Radiohead's sound is like a warm hug from someone who understands pain, grief, melancholy happiness, reality, and hope. I only wish Thom and the group knew what purpose they are serving today.
Today, last year, families lost their loved ones in a horrible act of hatred in El Paso. I remember being at the gym in the morning and seeing news of a shooting in El Paso. I was going to call my grandparents, both sides in El Paso, just to check in when I was finished. Many of us have made courtesy calls to friends and family when something tragic happens in close proximity to them, right? They ran errands every Saturday like clockwork. My partner came up to me before we finished working out and said we had to go. He doesn’t like to stay in the gym long so I thought he just… really wanted to leave. I didn’t know that he got “the call” from my mom. He didn’t tell me the news she had just given him as there were a lot of people around us; he needed me to be outside and safe. She called him first to make sure I wasn’t busy. I reluctantly cleaned up and he took me across the street. He told me my grandparents were in the WalMart where the shooting just happened and we didn’t know where my grandfather was. In a state of shock I still ran into the store next door since we were planning on grabbing groceries. Reality was a jumbled mess and I used my last bit of sanity to get groceries like it was a normal day. My legs felt like lead and my bike felt like 2 tons as we rode back home and my brain was processing what I was just told. Over the next few days the details and horror of everything unfolded. That day we learned my abuelita was shot, eventually carried out in a cart, and sent to the ICU. My abuelito was "missing" for two days only for us to learn that he was killed. It became clear how he mysteriously disappeared, that he wasn't just sent to a separate hospital. My abuela said he managed to tell her "Don't be afraid" as bullets were flying and before he was shot in the face, which we learned of from her.
Twenty two other families had their days crushed in that moment, and even more families with news of their loved ones injured. Please remember to celebrate the lives of those you lost. Grief and mourning are natural, but we should also remind ourselves to celebrate what these people have contributed to other peoples' lives and to the world, even if it is the gift of their presence. If you have read this far, thank you for your time. I know for many of us here in /radiohead, we have gone through tough times with Radiohead as an element of support, sometimes the only form of support. Call your friend, call your mom, dad, whoever. Just talk to someone, tell them you appreciate them. I never knew that the last words I spoke to my abuelito were my last. My birthday was a few days before. They sent a card and cash and I hadn't called them back yet to thank them.

2020.07.26 21:01 angry_obese_crab Finally free! Thanks to this subreddit ❤️

Soo, when I found out I was pregnant, I was already 5 weeks in. Since I was 14, I've made the decision that I NEVER wanted to have kids, so keeping it was out of the question, and I'm very solid on my decisions, so I never thought of keeping it. My partner said that he'd support me with whatever decision I made, but was leaning towards not having it now because of the economic struggle and the pandemic (but he wants to be a dad someday ☹️). So, as soon as I confirmed I was, I started to call local hospitals and stuff to see if they did abortions or if they knew about a place that could make them (keep in mind that I live in conservative b*tch ass Texas), so I was even told at a hospital that all Planned Parenthood clinics in Texas were closed, so looked it up and it turned out that it said they were out since 2011, so I started to feel that I was on Hard Mode.
I called a place named "Women's Clinic", and I had an assigned nurse who scheduled me an appointment for a free ultrasound, and then we would move on with the pills if the ultrasound showed anything. I went to the clinic, and everyone there was pro-life, so I got indirect guilt trips (ineffective of course), and people trying to make me second-guess myself. Those comments felt as if you had 2 tiny ants walking all over you, because they were subtle, but bothersome. Ultrasound day, there's a heartbeat, call to the Clinic, and the nurse tells me that the governor of Texas issued something saying that everything that is non-vital can't be delivered for 30 because of the virus (as if Texas gave a crap about the virus anyways), so I started to get mad.
I started to recur to more desperate methods, like eating stuff that are bad for the embryo (pineapple, aloe juice, peaches, sushi, alcohol, sesame seeds, etc.) and I won't deny, I felt it had an effect, because I felt it getting weaker inside of me. I even punched myself, but it was growing solid. All that time was horrible, because I was soooo lazy! The laziest I've been ever. My apartment was a mess, I was slow at work, my image was trash, everything I smelled was gross, all of that. So the time I had that clog of cells inside of me was not pleasant and I wanted it out everytime more.
I was feeling hopeless as it was advancing, so I thought "hey maybe Reddit could help..." so I went here and typed "abortion" and stumbled upon here. I looked up on the info, and saw that there was a Planned Parenthood clinics in El Paso! I was so happy and felt like everything bad was gonna end. So I called the clinic, and they told me that they aren't doing anything related to abortion right now because of the virus, but that there's another place called Women's Reproductive Clinic (Center? something like that) and they were open and operating. I called them, set up an appointment, and just waited until then. The day I went there, they weren't in their regular establishment, but they were in New Mexico (which I wish they've told me through the multiple phone calls we had) so we had to drive 20 more minutes to get there. To my surprise, there were a lot of women there! It seemed like a regular hospital. Women in, women out.
When the moment of truth finally happens, I felt like I was having such a fat burden being lifted from me. I was 15 weeks in, so they used the vacuum, which was very painful. I screamed and almost cried, but it lasted like 3 minutes. I was in pain and bleeding, but it was finally over. I started to feel better immediately. My laziness, my lack of energy all of it started to go away. I rested for the rest of the day, but the next day, I was finally able to pick my room, to paint my nails, to clean the kitchen, and many more stuff. My food aversion is almost gone, and I don't feel nauseous anymore when I smell food when I go to work, and I can eat what I want and need, not what my cravings say. I can't feel any happier, and I hope I don't go through this again ❤️ so thanks, y'all :)
