24 Year Old Seeking Help Shot By Police

It never ends

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say a man who apparently had wrecked his car and may have been seeking help from a homeowner at 2:30 a.m. Saturday was later shot and killed by an officer after running toward police.

The man was identified as 24-year-old Jonathan A. Ferrell.

Police Chief Rodney Monroe said officers received a call shortly after 2:30 a.m. about an attempted breaking-and-entering at a residence in the 7500 block of Reedy Creek Road in northeast Charlotte.

Three officers who responded to the scene came across a man matching the description of the possible suspect, and surrounded him, Monroe said at a press conference at CMPD headquarters. Monroe said the man “immediately charged” at the officers, and one of the them fired at him.

German spies made use of U.S. surveillance data

What's this, the US helped find kidnapped Germans?

BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany's foreign intelligence agency (BND) has known about U.S. surveillance and storage of German data for years and used it in cases of Germans kidnapped abroad, the mass-circulation daily Bild reported on Monday.

Questions over how much the German government and its own security agencies knew about U.S. surveillance have touched a raw nerve in Germany, given historical memories of spying on citizens by former communist East Germany and the Nazi regime.

The matter has also become an issue in Chancellor Angela Merkel's campaign for re-election to a third term in office and, although favored to win, she is keen to quash any impression that she knew more than she has let on.

Citing U.S. government sources, Bild said the BND had asked the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) for the email and telephone records of German citizens kidnapped in Yemen or Afghanistan to help ascertain their whereabouts and contacts.http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/thomson-reuters/130715/german-spies-made-use-us-surveillance-data-paper

Baltimore residents line up to get laptops in exchange for guns

"Think smart, not stupid. Think education, not guns."

Curtis Mason dropped off three small-caliber handguns at yesterday’s Computers for Guns event and came away with a fresh Dell laptop and a sense of relief.

Mason’s 17-year-old nephew who lives in Baltimore had started to acquire handguns, so when the 55-year-old Towson resident heard on TV about the event, he realized he had a chance to help the boy he’s been trying to mentor.

“I was very concerned about these guns. What would happen from them? Would they fall into the wrong hands?” Mason asked.

“I told him ‘You don’t have to go down there. I’ll handle the logistics,’” he recalled. “I said ‘Think smart, not stupid. Think education, not guns.’ I was shocked he didn’t resist.http://www.baltimorebrew.com/2013/07/14/baltimore-residents-line-up-to-get-laptops-in-exchange-for-guns/

Safer World Because of Eddie ... LOL

anti-Americanism is at an all time high in every corner of the world thanks to ES. If anyone thinks other countries don't do the same thing, you're delusional. American's without guns are not safe in America and Ed Snowden has made it so we are not safe anywhere - time to revert back to saying you're Canadian if you travel.
