TOMS RIVER, N.J. (AP) — Firefighters have put out a fire at an office building in New Jersey after waiting for 100,000 rounds of ammunition stored inside to explode. The fire at the building in Toms River burned for two hours Thursday morning and ignited the ammunition. Toms River police spokesman Officer Ralph Stocco says that the building’s owner is a competitive shooter. Toms River Fire Department District 1 Chief John Gonzalez told the Asbury Park Press ( http://on.app.com/2ao7wOY ) that the ammunition was popping for about 10 minutes. It took another few hours for the fire to stop smoldering. No one was in the building at the time of the fire and no one was hurt. It wasn’t clear how the fire began.
Yo what kind of office building has 100,000 thousand rounds of ammunition readily available? I mean i guess the guy was a competitive shooter but why the fuck would you keep that shit in your work place. Like i don’t keep a sack of shotgun shells at the restaurant willynilly. Definitely wouldn’t use my work place to house enough ammo for a militia because that would be dumb and at the price of ammo these days it would be like leaving 40k at the office depending on what this guys running. And also if you’re a competitive shooters how do you not have this shit stocked in one of those gun safes. Pretty sure if you had one of those you would need napalm and thermite to eat through the thick layer of steel. See I try to agree with these gun people, but not when it comes to inconveniencing others. If i were a firefighter and i had to get out of bed early to beat up the fire at your house, I don’t want to have to wait for your armory inside what ever LLC you got in that building to explode. We had a win for the Gun owners the other day at the Modesto Costco. This one takes an L for keeping firefighters from doing their job because they’re dumb.
ABC10- A regular day at the Costco in Modesto quickly turned into one of panic and chaos, when a 61-year-old man started pacing up and down the aisles with a large knife. “There were kids and families. Costco did a really good job rushing everybody outside,” said George Kunkel, a demo vendor at the wholesale club. “It was intense. He’s roaming around. What is he going to do?” The man was caught on camera roaming around the clothes section. Witnesses say he started charging at people, Costco employees specifically. “He didn’t proceed to do jabbing until people were out of his way and nothing but employees in front of him,” said Seth Watson, who works at Costco and witnessed the whole thing. Watson also said he saw employees trying to defend themselves with chairs and other objects. That’s when someone stepped in. An off-duty officer with the California Department of Corrections just happened to be one of the hundreds of people in the Costco at the time. “I didn’t even know that was an armed officer,” Watson said. “Glad he was there.” Kunkel said the officer told the man to put the knife down, but he refused. “Finally [the man] kind of charges at him,” Kunkel said. “That’s when the officer takes a shot to his stomach. One shot and he went down.” After the shooting, Costco closed down for the rest of the day. Modesto Police spent several hours gathering evidence. The officer was not injured. The man is in the hospital in critical but stable condition. The investigation will be treated as an officer-involved shooting. Many people are just thankful that an officer was in the right place at the right time.
Scoreboard: Gun-1, Knife-0
Look, guns are a super hot button issue that I don’t want to press here. There are pro’s and con’s and people that have their foot firmly planted on one side will never hear the other. All I will say is the gun won that one. It’s one of those things where theory meets practice. I don’t even think I would have the balls to shoot the guy just cause I don’t like getting involved in stuff, if I can run and every ones safe, so be it. But that guy was inching closer and closer to shiving some dude and the C.O. wasn’t having that. Had to pull the trigger. And I don’t really want to hear about people saying he’s mentally unstable and needs mental help and didn’t need to be shot. Uhhhh yea, we know. He’s a guy running around a Modesto Costco with a hunting knife, of course he’s unstable. But we’re not gonna wait for cops to arrive so they can taze him while he swings his knife around at people. Guy lived from a gun shot to the gut, he’s hospitalized, he can get help there on afterwards.
(NEWSER) – Earlier this week, Harvey Lembo decided enough was enough. After five burglaries in his Maine home in six years—most recently last month when $1,000 and medications were stolen—the retired lobsterman bought what he describes as a 7mm Russian-made revolver on Monday. Hours later, he used it, reports CBS News. Lembo, 67 and wheelchair-bound, says he awoke late Monday to the sound of an intruder and saw a shadow pass his kitchen. He took the gun out from under his pillow and confronted the man, who was looking through his medications, reports the Bangor Daily News. “I told him to sit down while I called police or I would blow his brains out.” But while Lembo was on the phone, he says the man tried to flee, so Lembo shot him in the shoulder. Police found 45-year-old Christopher Wildhaber, who has two prior domestic violence convictions, thanks to the trail of blood. After initially saying they don’t expect Lembo to be charged, police are now saying the decision lies with the district attorney, who has yet to issue a decision on the matter. No word on just how Lembo’s apartment was so easy to break into, but a warning to those who think he’s an easy target: “They’re going to have the same treatment,” Lembo says. “And one of them might be worse. Might be fatal. ‘Cause I ain’t messing around no more.”
Now I don’t want to sound biased because I’m from the south and have guns and all that but god dammit does it feel good that a criminal got shot by a 67 year old wheel chair bound man. Harvey Lembo doesn’t deserve to be robbed. Guy probably spent his entire life waking up at Four a.m. and came home at night stinking of brine. He probably sent his kids through law school and paid for all those medications with the lobsters he caught! I mean robbing some scum bag I dont care but not this god damn retired lobsterman. Well about time a nice blue collar fellow just taking the law into his hands fucking threatening to blow the brains out of a criminal while he’s in his wheel chair but thats what you get if you try to steal $1,000 dollars worth of meds from his cupboards. That should teach Christopher Wildhaber a lesson that two prior domestic violence charges can’t. I mean he might’ve clipped the shoulder but coming from an un experienced shooter who bought his revolver a few hours before, you know he was aiming to put one through his dome. Cause he ain’t messing around no more.
p.s- one suggestion though, Harvey. Russian revolver? Get your self a nice American made Smith & Wesson.
SACRAMENTO — Police in Sacramento say two armed men looking for a man they said they intended to harm broadcast the hunt on live-video app Periscope. The suspects, now in custody, never found the possible victim and they’re now in custody, reports CBS Sacramento. The men reportedly said one of their girlfriends was with another man, and they intended to confront him and “see what we could do.” A viewer sent a link of the broadcast to the station. According to the station, police say the two suspects – identified as 28-year-old Damon Batson and 25-year-old Carlos Gonzalez – broadcast for more than an hour Wednesday while their Periscope followers egged them on, “liking” the broadcast with hearts and some posting gun emoticons. At one point, the station reports, one of the suspects fired a gun after a viewer asked them via the app to prove the weapon they were brandishing was real. Gonzalez appears to fire the gun from the passenger seat of a moving vehicle, reports the Sacramento Bee. The men are shown on the video knocking on the door of an apartment, but apparently, no one was home. “If I didn’t think I would get in trouble with the law, n— I would Periscope everything,” Gonzalez apparently says on the video. One of the men also allegedly showed off what appeared to be marijuana plants in the same broadcast. No one reported the hour-long broadcast to police while it was live, reports the station. It wasn’t until the next day that police were alerted, and they were able to identify the victims and arrest them on Thursday. “We’re very fortunate that it ended this way, that no one got hurt,” Sacramento Police Sgt. Doug Morse told the station. Morse said that the incident was “almost unprecedented” in their area. The disturbing broadcast comes after the shooting deaths Wednesday of WDBJ reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward in Virginia, which was seen on live television. The suspect, Vester Flanagan, also apparently recorded the shootings and posted video to social media. Expert Julie Gallaher told the station social media often play’s into people’s desire to feel famous and can easily be used by those with “evil intent” seeking notoriety or recognition in their crimes. “If someone has evil intent, it’s just as easy for them to use the platforms as people that are good,” Gallaher said. Police have still not identified the possible victim. After serving a search warrant, police located the gun believed to be the one shown in the broadcast, reports the Bee. Batson was jailed on gun and drugs charges, and Gonzalez was booked on suspicion of gross negligent discharge of a firearm and possession of a loaded gun in public, the paper reports.
Rap snitches, tellin all their business. Sit in the court and be they own star witness. Honestly idk how hard or tough these dumb mother fuckers think they are but they might be the worst class of criminal on the streets. I mean who wants to get their drugs and be linked to a dealer that puts all his shit out there for the world to know about. Keep shit on the low, homie. Might as well use your name and birth certificate when you ask anyone if they want to buy and eighth of weed. But worst of all was the gun. Like THATS what you’re gonna try to murder someone with? Some 2 shot derringer? I’ve seen girls probably laugh at that little pea shooter. If you’re gonna be your own snitch on social media and blast all your crimes on live broadcast through periscope you gotta come out with something harder than a derringer palm pistol and a failed attempt at murder.
This could’ve been a brilliant move who ever put the hit out. Its kinda like in Smokin Ace’s if anyone seen that movie, Lazlo Soot the professional hit man. Dude just takes on a bunch of disguises and at one point he’s this black homeless looking dude with dreads in a wheel chair and lo and behold he’s actually an assassin with duel machine guns pumping lead into a group of people while he’s actually white with working legs. Its unsuspecting.
This guy however is the opposite of being a good assassin. If he were a good assassin he would not have done the following 1.) Not been just casually strolling down the street with a pistol in hand with his crutch. Amateur hour. You gotta keep that shit tucked somewhere and look all cool pulling it out. 2.) he would’ve used a gun that actually works. Dude pointed it at his mark for like 10 mississippi’s before trying to rack the slide from a jam or something. You can literally kill 10 people in 10 seconds probably even more if you’re skilled but he killed zero. Above all gotta make sure you have a working gun during a hit. Day 1 stuff. 3.) You need working legs. Plain and simple. Get robot legs or those blade runner contraptions. anything. If all had gone correct he couldn’t even run away. Guy would have to hobble away. In his situation if he had another leg i feel like things would’ve just worked. Gun probably wouldn’t jam, mark would’ve been killed, He would’ve gone to his safe spot counting his turkish lira. But instead he’s short a wheel, picked a profession that he’s incapable of doing well and from that decision also picked a gun that doesn’t work. I want to hate this guy for being an assassin but im more embarassed for him. Got tackled on the job and it all started from a series of bad decisions that began with missing one leg….Also living in Turkey, thats also a bad move.
