Police officer dies after Bronx shooting
Associated Press 9:45 PM July 5, 2017A New York City police officer has been fatally shot, ambushed in a marked patrol car by a man with a revolver who was later killed by officers.Officer Miosotis Familia was assigned with a partner to a mobile command post when the man fired one round through the window and struck her in the head as she was wrapping up her shift. She was rushed to a hospital but did not survive.”This was an unprovoked direct attack on police officers who were assigned to keep the people of this city safe,” Police Commissioner James O’Neill said.Her partner radioed for help, and officers responded fast, encountering the suspect, 34-year-old Alexander Bonds, about a block away, he said. As they confronted him, he pulled a revolver, and police fired, striking and killing him. A silver revolver was found at the scene.A bystander was hit in the stomach by a bullet during the standoff, and is in stable condition, police said.Bonds had been on parole for a robbery case in Syracuse, New York, police said. He is seen in surveillance footage marching up to the post “with purpose,” officials said, but it’s not clear what provoked the attack.Witness Jay Marzelli told the Daily News of New York he thought the shots were fireworks at first.”I was in this bodega right here on Creston, just getting a sandwich and all of a sudden there was all this running and stuff going on, and I look out probably 40, 50, 60 cops screaming, ‘Call a paramedic, clear the block!”‘ he said. “It looked like there was a riot going on, and two seconds later I hear gunshots, ‘Bam, bam,’ and then the police officer was just laying there.”

BAM
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
Part of BAMcinématek series Southern Gothic
Directed by Clint Eastwood | 1997
With Kevin Spacey, John Cusack, The Lady Chablis
Clint Eastwood’s adaptation of the true crime bestseller is redolent with the languid air of Savannah, Georgia. It’s there that a New York reporter (Cusack) is drawn into the weird world of an extravagantly wealthy, gay antique dealer (Spacey) accused of murdering his hustler lover. Voodoo, rough trade, and a host of Southern-fried oddballs all lurk beneath the genteel façade.

The Fourteen Words is a phrase used by white nationalists, Neo-Nazis, and others. It refers to both the 14-word slogan: “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for White children.”[1], and the 14-word slogan: “Because the beauty of the White Aryan woman must not perish from the earth.”[2] Both 14-word slogans were coined by David Lane, a member of the Neo-Nazi organization The Order. The first slogan was inspired by a statement, 88 words in length, quoted from Volume 1, Chapter 8 of Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf:What we must fight for is to safeguard the existence and reproduction of our race and our people, the sustenance of our children and the purity of our blood, the freedom and independence of the fatherland, so that our people may mature for the fulfillment of the mission allotted it by the creator of the universe. EVERY THOUGHT AND EVERY IDEA, EVERY DOCTRINE AND ALL KNOWLEDGE, MUST SERVE THIS PURPOSE.  And everything must be examined from this point of view and used or rejected according to its utility.

It can be combined with 88, as in 14/88 or 1488. The 8s stand for the eighth letter of the alphabet (H), with HH standing for Heil Hitler.[3] 88 can also stand for the book 88 Precepts by David Lane.[4]

I hope that the Lord’s people may be at peace one with another during times of trouble, regardless of what loyalties they may have to different governments or parties.

The Lord counseled them, “Defend your families even unto bloodshed” (Alma 43:47).
And Moroni “rent his coat; and he took a piece thereof, and wrote upon it—In memory of our God, our religion, and freedom, and our peace, our wives, and our children—and he fastened it upon the end of a pole.
“And he fastened on his headplate, and his breastplate, and his shields, and girded on his armor about his loins; and he took the pole, which had on the end thereof his rent coat, (and he called it the title of liberty) and he bowed himself to the earth, and he prayed mightily unto his God for the blessings of liberty to rest upon his brethren” (Alma 46:1213).

In Mormonism, the oath of vengeance (or law of vengeance) was an oath that was made by participants in the Endowment ritual of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints between about 1845 and the 1920s, in which participants vowed to pray that God would avenge the blood of the prophets Joseph Smith, Jr. and Hyrum Smith, who were assassinated in 1844 by a mob.The oath of vengeance was an addition made to the Nauvoo Endowment under the direction of Brigham Young by 1845 in the Nauvoo Temple, soon after the 1844 death of Joseph Smith, Jr..[1] Participants agreed to be bound by the following oath, or something substantially similar:

“You and each of you do covenant and promise that you will pray and never cease to pray to Almighty God to avenge the blood of the prophets upon this nation, and that you will teach the same to your children and to your children’s children unto the third and fourth generation.”[2]
“The prophets” referred to Joseph Smith and Hyrum Smith, who were killed in 1844 by a mob while in jail in Carthage, Illinois. “This nation” referred to the United States.[3]

Song: “Criminal Minded”
Artist: Boogie Down Productions
One of the great things about New York being the birthplace of hip-hop is that there are so many different styles within the city itself. You can likely guess where a rapper is from based on his or her approach. KRS One, proudly from the Bronx, was one of the finest that any of the five boroughs had to offer. The way that he rhymed in Boogie Down Productions ushered the transition from rapping about how great you were to actually telling stories; his verses felt like chapters in a story rather than just back to back lines that correlate. When he says they need to translate, he meant it; they had to rewind decode his rhymes. And that was because he was from the lyrical capital of rap at the time.—Michael Depland

FOR THE RECORD. The words “cop” and “cops” is gangster talk, from 1940’s 1950’s movies. For example: a knock on the door, “Open up!”  Gangster says to the rest of the gangsters , “Hide the loot, it’s the cops!” People who respect the police do not use gangster talk when referring to the police.  (The wrath of Jehovah God is upon you, O deceitful one Mormon Church of Satan.)  cc all Mormon barristers
