The poor dears! Turning their lives around. Aspiring rappers?
[NY Post] The teenager shot dead in Seattle’s Capitol Hill Organized Protest area was being chased after stealing a Jeep at knifepoint — and sobbed, "I don’t want to die" after he was shot, according to a report.
Antonio Mays Jr., 16, said that he and a 14-year-old boy were being chased and shot at early Monday after they "beat someone up and took" their vehicle at knifepoint, his so-called "street sister," Ciara Walker, told DailyMail.com.
Walker told the pair to head to the police precinct in the CHOP zone, telling them, "You will be safe there — nothing will happen to you."
"Next thing I heard the crashing and pop pop pop,
...reportedly the CHAZ/CHOP volunteer militia members fired over 300 bullets — and yet she heard only pop pop pop? Words fail...
and one of them screamed, ’Ah s—t I’m hit, I don’t wanna die,'" Walker told the Mail. "Then the phone went dead."
Mays was killed and his younger passenger left in critical condition.
Walker insisted the pair were "not gang members" even though they "hung out with Blood gang members."
Hadn’t yet made their bones, and now one of them never will... and the wounded yoot will still have to do some other dreadful thing to get in.
They told her one of the cars that chased them — allegedly firing shots — had "security" written on the side of it.
"They drove into the CHOP zone not to ambush the sleeping protesters but for their own safety," Walker told the outlet.
"And it ended up costing at least one of them their life."
The deadly shooting ‐ along with an earlier one that killed a 19-year-old ‐ were central to the zone finally getting shut down this week.
Still, the CHOP's security shouldn't have killed him. They should have just stopped him. And what about his innocent passenger! Charge the guys who killed him with Murder 1 and execute them tomorrow! And their dogs! And defund the CHOPs. And give everyone else free money.
Per the 19 YO who was shot earlier. Hannity interviewed the father and apparently no officials bothered to even notify him. Not the police, not the mayor - he heard about it from his son's friends. And they wouln't even let him see his son for about a week. Sad interview.

[KhaamaPress] The security forces inflicted casualties on five Talibs including three local leaders of the group in northern Faryab province.
The 209th Shaheen Corps in a statement said the Talibs attacked the security posts of the Afghan forces in Ozlik Village of Qaisar district.
The statement further added that the security forces killed two local leaders of Taliban ...Arabic for students... during the clash, including Qari Abdullah and Mullah Abid.
The security forces also wouded three other Talibs including Mawlavi Ismail, one of the local leaders of the group, the statement added.
Meanwhile, ...back at the shouting match, the spittle had reached unprecedented levels... another Taliban bully boy was killed while he was planting an improvised bomb in Garziwan district of Faryab, the 209th Shaheen Corps said.
The Taliban group has not commented regarding the two incidents so far.
[ToloNews] One civilian was killed and at least eight security force members and two civilians were maimed during festivities between the Taliban ...Arabic for students... and security forces in western Herat ...a venerable old Persian-speaking city in western Afghanistan, populated mostly by Tadjiks, which is why it's not as blood-soaked as areas controlled by Pashtuns... province on Tuesday night, local officials said on Wednesday.
The festivities took place in the Pashtun Zarghun district of the province while security forces were supplying equipment to the troops, said a security source.
[AlAhram] Egypt’s Court of Cassation upheld on Wednesday death sentence ...the barbaric practice of sentencing a murderer to be punished for as long as his/her/its victim is dead... s against three defendants convicted on terrorism-related charges in the 2014 case known in the media as the Ansar al-Sharia ...a Salafist militia which claims it is not part of al-Qaeda, even though it works about the same and for the same ends. There are groups of the same name in Libya and Yemen, with the Libyan versions currently most active. Tunisia's Shabaab al-Tawhid started out an Ansar al-Sharia and changed its name in early 2014. It still uses the old name now and then, probably because the stationery's not all used up and the web site hasn't expired yet... case.
The court also upheld life imprisonment sentences for four others, and 10-year prison terms for three defendants.
The final verdict comes nearly two years after a criminal court handed down death sentences to three defendants, and life imprisonment and 15-year prison terms to four and seven others, respectively.
In 2014, the defendants were charged with establishing and running the Ansar al-Sharia terrorist group, attacking police and army personnel and institutions, as well as targeting government facilities and Christians and their places of worship.
The prosecution charged that between August 2013 and May 2014 in Beni Suef, Sharqiya and Giza, the defendants managed a terrorist organization and received funds to carry out hostile operations against the state and citizens.
[AlAhram] Egypt's top appeals court issued on Wednesday a final seven-year prison sentence against a police officer who killed an activist during a 2015 demonstration.
Shaimaa El-Sabbagh, a 32-year-old mother who belonged to the Socialist Popular Alliance Party, was rubbed out by an officer who fired birdshot to disperse a protest in downtown Cairo on the fourth anniversary of the 25 January Revolution.
First lieutenant Yassin was initially sentenced to 15 years in prison in June 2015 for "an action that led to the death" of El-Sabbagh. The ruling was later overturned by the Court of Cassation, which ordered a retrial in February 2016.
Hatem was then sentenced to 10 years in prison by a criminal court in June 2017. On Wednesday, however, the Court of Cassation reduced the sentence to seven years. This sentence is final and cannot be appealed
Prosecutors argued that Hatem had acted with the intention of harming demonstrators by loading his shotgun with birdshot, showing a disregard for the lives of others.
The officer fired birdshot at demonstrators from a distance of eight metres, which immediately killed El-Sabbagh.
The killing of El-Sabbagh, who was protesting peacefully, sparked public outcry at the time, prompting President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi to vow to bring her killer to justice.
Egypt banned unsanctioned protests in 2013 amid unrest that followed the ouster of Islamist president Mohammed Morsi.
Twenty-four people have been killed in an armed attack on a drugs rehabilitation facility in the central Mexican city of Irapuato, according to media reports on Wednesday which were confirmed by a Mexican federal official.
Mexican news network Milenio said seven people were also injured in the shooting at the facility in Guanajuato state, the second such attack to take place in Irapuato in the past month.
On June 6, 10 men were killed when button men opened fire in a rehabilitation center for addicts in Irapuato. It was not immediately clear if the same facility was hit both times.
Guanajuato, a major carmaking hub, has become one of the principal flashpoints of surging gang violence which President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has promised to quell.
Rehab facilities stateside have been a focal point for drug distribution. Typically, one condition for people who have been involved in crimes committed while drugged-up to receive relatively light sentences is for them to quit drugs, typically at a rehab center. Problem is rehab centers are a great place to peddle drugs through corrupt staff members who will both sell drugs to patients and certify that someone who has gone through the program is clean. So this is possibly a turf war.
I'm indifferent to whether narcotic drugs are legal or illegal. If legal, they should be legal all the way. If illegal, ditto, meaning that an arrest for possession should lead to an expedited trial and appeals process that ends up either in execution or acquittal within low single digit years. What Mexico has is the worst of both worlds.

The chop eradication effort may, in part, be due to the 2 (at least) lawsuits brought against the mayorette and the city by residents and businesses impacted by the protest clowns and seattle's non-attempt to stop them.

[IsraelTimes] Security service says Beirut Hamoud and her Lebanese husband tried to enlist two residents of her hometown of Majd al-Krum as operatives for the Iran-backed terror group.
The Shin Bet security service on Tuesday accused an Arab Israeli woman living in Leb ...an Iranian colony situated on the eastern Mediterranean, conveniently adjacent to Israel. Formerly inhabited by hardy Phoenecian traders, its official language is now Arabic, with the usual unpleasant side effects. The Leb civil war, between 1975 and 1990, lasted a little over 145 years and produced 120,000 fatalities. The average length of a ceasefire was measured in seconds. The Lebs maintain a precarious sectarian balance among Shiites, Sunnis, and about a dozeen flavors of Christians. It is the home of Hezbollah, which periodically starts a war with the Zionist Entity, gets Beirut pounded to rubble, and then declares victory and has a parade. The Lebs have the curious habit of periodically murdering their heads of state or prime ministers... of working to recruit Israeli citizens as operatives for the Iran-backed Hezbollah terror group.
According to the Shin Bet, Beirut Hamoud sought to enlist two female residents of her hometown of Majd al-Krum, an Arab town in the Galilee. The women, whose names weren’t published, were arrested on May 2 and were granted conditional release after they were interrogated.
Hamoud was questioned by Israeli security forces in 2013 over suspicions she had contacted Hezbollah operatives and met with them at one conference in Morocco in 2008 and another in Tunisia in 2012, after which the Shin Bet said she left Israel for Lebanon. There, she married Bilal Bizri and now works as a journalist at the Hezbollah-linked al-Akhbar neswspaper.
"Alongside her work as a journalist in Lebanon, Beirut Hamoud and her husband Bilal are run by the terror organization Hezbollah to locate and recruit Israeli citizens for operations for Hezbollah," a statement from the Shin Bet said.
The security agency said Hamoud contacted the two Majd al-Krum residents and met them in The Sick Man of Europe Turkey ...the only place on the face of the earth that misses the Ottoman Empire... in December, after which the Shin Bet questioned them on suspicion that Hamoud and Bizri had tried to recruit them to Hezbollah.
"During the investigation the contact between the two and Beirut was confirmed, as well as information about the meeting in Turkey and the way in which Hezbollah worked through Beirut and her husband to enlist additional Israelis for Hezbollah operations," the Shin Bet said.
According to the security service, one of its agents called Bizri to warn him that Israel was on to them and to cease their efforts to recruit Israelis citizens for Hezbollah. A portion of the undated phone call was released by the Shin Bet.
"Send greetings to your commander in Hezbollah... in the near future there will be a few surprises for him from us," the agent said during the call.
At the end of the phone call, Bizri said, "I’m not in Hezbollah or anything like it." The quote was not included in the Hebrew subtitles of the recording sent out by the security service.
The Shin Bet didn’t specify for what type of operations they suspected Hamoud had tried to recruit the women. But it stressed "the great severity" with which it viewed "exploiting Israeli citizenship" to help the activities of terror groups.
Responding to the accusations, Hamoud said the two Majd al-Krum residents were childhood friends of hers and accused the Shin Bet of investigating her because she married a Lebanese national.
"In 2013 they tailed me for two and a half months and interrogated me. They found nothing, because there wasn’t anything to find, nothing but the illusions in their heads," she wrote on Facebook.
[Rudaw] Iran ...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan. The abbreviation IRGC is the same idea as Stürmabteilung (or SA). The term Supreme Guide is a the modern version form of either Duce or Führer or maybe both. They hate JewsZionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol... on Tuesday sentenced to death an opposition figure who had lived in exile in La Belle France before his arrest last year, and separately upheld a five-year jail term for a French-Iranian academic.
Although they are both parties to a landmark 2015 nuclear deal, Tehran and Gay Paree have seen their relations deteriorate in the past year.
