Road Rage Killer Fatally Shot

 Stories about the use of firearms in self defense don't get much national coverage. The scenario is that you are driving in your vehicle when ....

PLANT CITY, Fla. (WFLA) – A man who had just been released from prison after serving time for a road rage killing was shot and killed during an encounter in Plant City Wednesday morning, authorities say. 
Wednesday’s road rage incident happened at 7 a.m. near the intersection of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd and Branch Forbes Road. 
According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, one driver stopped his car in front of the other, got out of his pickup truck and approached the motorist behind him. That’s when an argument escalated between the two. 
Investigators say the car’s driver, 42-year-old Robert Padgett, warned Gary Lynn Durham, who was driving a pickup truck, before he pulled out a gun and shot him. 
When paramedics arrived, they found Padgett giving CPR to Durham, who later died.
According to the sheriff’s office, Durham had recently been released from prison for killing a man during a road rage incident. He spent 11 years behind bars. 
A sheriff’s office spokesperson said Padgett will not be arrested and that he is cooperating with the investigation. 
“He was trying to do the right thing and make sure the individual would survive,” HCSO Col. Donna Lusczynski said. Padgett was released by deputies pending a State’s Attorney’s Office review of the case.

Wasserman Schultz Says Prez Nomination Process Clean Even After Email Leak

Debbie Wasserman Schultz's denial of any mischief or misconduct in the DNC presidential primary between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton is just another lie so she should feel quite at home in the Hilary Clinton campaign.
Former Democratic Party chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz defended her handling of the party's presidential primary as "by the books" and criticized Bernie Sanders's campaign for attempting to peg her as the "boogeywoman."

And while it does appear Debbie W. Schultz has forgotten about the leaked DNC emails, Wikileaks sure hasn't .

Did you catch the Freudian slip ?

That is right, she is proud of the primary that she and Hillary won ....

It is time for all the Bernie Backers to jump on the Trump Train and make that the only light these two see at the end of the election 2016 tunnel.

A Washington DC Transit Police Officer has been Charged with Aiding ISIS

CNN reporters seemed confused about the relationship between Nazi's and Islam.  Try google and enter Grand Mufti and Hitler.  Okay, now back to the excerpt from CNN:

DC transit police officer charged with aiding ISIS
Washington (CNN)In the first case of a US police officer charged with aiding ISIS, a Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority cop was arrested Wednesday for providing material support to ISIS, the Justice Department announced. 
Nicholas Young was arrested by the FBI on Wednesday but was on law enforcement's radar since 2010, according to an affidavit released with Young's arrest. 
There was no evidence of any threat to the DC Metro system. Young will make his first appearance in court later Wednesday, according to two law enforcement officials. 
He would be the first police officer in the United States arrested and charged with supporting ISIS. 

Young has been in contact with undercover law enforcement officers and informants since 2011 and was interviewed as early as 2010 about his relationship with a friend, Zachary Chesser, who pleaded guilty to supporting a foreign terrorist organization, according to court documents.
In addition, Young allegedly met several times with Amine El Khalifi before el Khalifi was arrested in 2012 for plotting to carry out a suicide bombing at the US Capitol building. 
In 2014, Young also began meeting with an informant who convinced Young he was traveling overseas to join ISIS in Syria, according to the FBI. Once Young believed that had happened, the FBI began communicating directly with Young electronically, posing as the informant. 
The core charge of material support came from Young allegedly buying gift cards to support ISIS through mobile messaging accounts. He sent the gift card codes to the person he believed to be in Syria in late July. 
Young also traveled to Libya in 2011 and tried to go a second time, telling law enforcement he was working with rebels to overthrow Moammar Gaddafi, according to the court documents. Numerous times he allegedly expressed desires to stockpile weapons, attack law enforcement and warned others about being watched. 
Young was a Metro police officer since 2003 but was fired Wednesday morning after his arrest, according to Metro Transit Police.
