Zak Ebrahim: I am the son of a terrorist. Here’s how I chose peace

If you’re raised on dogma and hate, can you choose a different path? Zak Ebrahim was just seven years old when his father helped plan the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. His story is shocking, powerful, and ultimately, inspiring.

A Texas man is under arrest after gunning down a SWAT team member as the officer quietly tried to climb in through the apartment’s window during predawn hours.

Police State USAreports  that a resident fatally shot Detective Charles “Chuck” Dinwiddie as the officer climbed in through a ground level window as part of a “no knock” raid. The officers were there due to suspicion that residents were in possession of controlled substances.

Upon hearing a noise, resident Marvin Louis Guy, 50, opened fire on the unidentified officers, shooting three others as well, although only one fatally.

Guy is currently being held on capital murder charges in connection with Dinwiddie’s death, even though it’s unclear how Guy was supposed to know that the men crawling in through the window were police officers since they hadn’t identified themselves.

The evidence sheet lists a laptop, a safe, a pistol, and a glass pipe, but no drugs were found. Given the evidence, why did police deem it necessary to seek a “no knock” warrant and why did a judge sign off on it?

Very little is known about Mr. Guy, but Dinwiddie left behind two children, all because his SWAT team went creeping into a home where the residents didn’t even have any drugs. Is that the best use of law enforcement tax dollars?

Guy’s bond has been set at $3 million dollars.

Thank you lieutenantnorals!

way more important than mike brown tbh

I won’t be surprised when he gets the death penalty.

This is the problem with “no knock” warrants. You have the right to defend yourself when someone breaks into your home unannounced.

Unless it’s a cop.

Why no knock warrants exist for low level crimes will never make sense to me. It puts literally everyone involved in extreme danger, from the officers entering, to the “suspect” and everyone in between, including any children in the house. This type of warrant got a man killed for nothing, and after “due process” we’re likely to see another man die for nothing.

Absolutely.

Even ignoring the Fourth Amendment, these only put cops in danger because citizens don’t know until after the fact if it’s a cop or robber. As well as the citizen because he’s going to be approaching a cop with a weapon out.

With just one single exception, the attack on congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson in 2011, every public shooting since at least 1950 in the U.S. in which more than three people have been killed has taken place where citizens are not allowed to carry guns.

The reason people aren't so willing to accept non-binary people is because they get grouped in with the tu-cutes and the trans-trenders. it's just unfortunate, but it's also a product of tumblr's toxic environment.

It's funny how you defend 9/11 as not being an inside job. You're like those mothers of rapists and serial killers who say "but he was a good boy" hahaha you're a joke! People who major in physics say that there was no way a plane did that. What do you major in?? Probably bullshit! You've got professionals saying how there was no way planes were involved yet you still believe so. I feel sorry for ignorant bastards like you. Please get out from under your rock. Youtube has the proof! Slayyyyy!!!

Next week on an all new Tumblr Detective:  things heat up as more and more anonymous experts pour in clues about the true cause of the 9/11 attacks and the secret conspiracy behind greedy oil companies devious plan to not obtain oil from Afghanistan…but rather cheap readily available sand to fund their secret playground project across the country.

Put politicians on minimum wage and see how fast things will change. Stop fighting each other and start fighting the 1%. Stop funding the beast (government) because tax = theft. Power in numbers... the people will win if we stick together. Stop police brutality and take back our rights xoxo

Although I agree with most of what you say, fight the 1%?  But what if the 1% are good people?  My grandmother is part of the 1% and she’s lying around minding her own business, watching soap operas in her room at a retirement home.  You can’t say, “stop fighting each other and start fighting the 1%,” because they’re the same thing.  Let’s stop making the 1% a boogieman.  That’s a progressive class warfare lie.  Anyone that has saved up their entire life to retire with a couple of million dollars are not bad people - they’re smart people.  We all should be following their example.

In fact, personal responsibility should be our motto.  If we want to stop funding the beast, as you put it, we need to stop depending on government as a solution to all our problems.  We need to do away with bankrupt plans like social security, and start creating our own tax-free social safety-net programs like personal retirement accounts from birth.  We can do away with Medicaid and Medicare by opening up health savings accounts.  Let anyone put tax-free money into them whenever they want.  That’s real wealth distribution, and it’s done outside the greedy eye of the federal or state government.

We can fix this thing still, we just have to start filling more and more seats in Congress with Constitutional conservatives and libertarians who believe in free market solutions.  We need to convince the rest of the drive-by voters to stop buying into these Democrat promises and stop reelecting the same incumbents in either party.  Not only do we have to vote ourselves, we need to wake other people up who have been asleep to this fiasco and convince them to vote; because the Democrats are not only doing this, they are also convincing the completely clueless and disenfranchised that their vote for big government will somehow help them when the completely opposite is true.

I don’t get it when people claim to be independent standing people. To me you either lean more left or right and trying to play monkey in the middle is just aggravating to me. Most people who claim to be independent turn out to be left leaning the most. 

P.S. I am writing this in response to Bernie Sanders thinking of running for president. He’s “independent” but wants to run as a democrat. 

Sanders is a self described socialist who caucuses with the Democrats. No way in hell he is a centrist. The only reason he is a registered independent is that it’s the only way he can get elected.

If Republicans actually cared about the American people, then why are none of them feminists?

Logic: 1

Republicans: 0

Uh, OP. We ARE feminists… AKA original feminists who actually believe women are entitled to what they work for and have the ability to choose what they wish to do in life. Not modern feminists who want dominance over men and demand “free” birth control and abortions.

Try again, OP. Your logic is doing quite poorly.

OP does realize that most of the first wave feminists were Republicans and it was Wilson that opposed the woman’s suffrage movement for years until he finally signed it as part of the war effort during World War One following a series on protests outside the White House?

It was only during the 60s when the feminism movement tied itself to the Vietnam protests that it became associated with the left side of American politics. This union is also what helped spawn the 3rd wave feminists that plague us today.
