ALABAMA: Man Dies After His Gun Discharges While Changing Child’s Diaper At Chuck E. Cheese

Filed under: Children, Family, Gun Control, Harm, News, Questions, Sad — Scottie @ 11:07

 

Birmingham’s ABC affiliate reports:

A father has died after last weekend’s accidental shooting in the parking lot of Chuck E. Cheese’s in Vestavia Hills. The Jefferson County Coroner has identified the victim Timothy Roshun Smith Jr. He was 22.

Lt. Michael Keller with Vestavia Hills PD confirms Smith and his daughter were shot in the restaurant’s parking lot while Smith was changing his daughter’s diaper. Smith was shot in the chest and the child was shot in the leg.

The Birmingham Herald reports:

Keller said the gun was inside a bag in the vehicle. The preliminary information is that the adult male victim was about to change the girl’s diaper when he came in contact with the gun inside the bag and it fired. The single bullet discharged hit him in the chest, and then the girl.

NRA Seeks To Block Violence Against Women Act

Filed under: Gender, Gun Control, Harm, News, Political, Questions — Scottie @ 05:48

Newsweek reports:

Top Democratic presidential candidates have slammed the National Rifle Association over its reported bid to block a measure seeking to renew and expand the Violence Against Women Act. The gun lobby announced plans to lower grades for politicians who vote in favor of the legislation, which includes a measure to keep firearms out of the hands of abusers, according to reports.

Earlier this week, the National Journal reported that the NRA was planning to issue a “key vote” alert against the Violence Against Women Act, warning members of Congress that their vote on the legislation would be scored by the gun lobby and reflected in their NRA rating. The warning came after a bill to reauthorize and expand the act was introduced in the House on March 7.

Houston’s “Drag Queen Story Time” Will End Following Threats from Conservatives

Again conservative Christians ruin something fun and educational for kids.   These people are determined everyone will live by their myths.   Hugs

https://friendlyatheist.patheos.com/2019/03/25/houstons-drag-queen-story-time-will-end-following-threats-from-conservatives/

The main reason? The threats from conservatives were putting the performers, their families, and the children who attended the events at risk.

Protesters and counter-protesters continued to show up in great numbers. Tex Christopher continued to come to nearly every story time, watching from inside the room and waiting for any opportunity to prove what we were doing was vile. We cannot explain how it feels to put on a show while trying to avoid the stare of someone you know hates you. Another protester was arrested after he refused to leave the premises at the January event. It was discovered that he was carrying a concealed gun (he had a license). The patrons of the story time began to express concerns about safety, and the staff of the Freed-Montrose Library were threatened to such a degree that some were reassigned to different branches.

At this point, you can understand why Lira and Will are ready to move on.

… We have tried so hard to take the high road, to not stoop to mud-slinging. We have patiently listened to the people that declared we were sexualizing and molesting children. We have asked counter-protesters to be peaceful or not show up at all. We have been calm. We have been collected. But we are angry. And we are tired. And we are sick of well-intentioned but misinformed news stories that have only polarized people more. And so we wanted you to hear it from us.

… What started as a fun community event shared between us, a couple of drag queens and kings, and a few families has become a national controversy. People are being threatened. People are being hurt. We believe in what we’re doing, but we don’t believe in putting our friends, our families, or our children in danger.

TEXAS: Armed Trump Supporter Arrested At Houston Library Hosting Drag Queen Story Hour Event

https://www.joemygod.com/2019/01/texas-armed-trump-supporter-arrested-at-houston-library-hosting-drag-queen-story-hour-event-video/

A Drag Queen Storytime protester allegedly trespassed in the Freed-Montrose Library this weekend after previously being banned from the premises. James “Doc” Greene Sr., who was issued a trespassing warning last month by the Houston Public Library (HPL) stating he could no longer visit its Montrose location, was detained, disarmed, and escorted out by police on Saturday, Jan. 26, for entering the building and refusing to leave.

He repeatedly asks a library worker for her name and the reason why he is being asked to leave the library. “We have a bunch of homosexuals that are molesting children,” Greene says in the garage. “They are doing it with your help.”

‘Now my baby has gotten justice’: Grieving father reacts to arrests in Jazmine Barnes slaying

It seems it was not racism, but possible gang violence.   The driver of the attacking vehicle says they thought it was someone else and they fired into the car without checking.  I do not care, they killed without a care for taking life, they were set on killing.  They should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.  Hugs

Ultimately, a tip passed from civil-rights activist Shaun King to Gonzalez’s inbox during the middle of the week led investigators to Black’s Instagram account. The tip indicated that Black was driving the car with another man as a passenger.

The suspects did not resemble the sickly thin man with blue eyes and hints of stubble depicted in a sketch composite compiled with the help of Jazmine’s sister. Both of the suspects were black.

“We do not believe in any way that the family, as we’ve said from the beginning, that they’ve been involved in anything nefarious,” Gonzalez said. “It’s just went down very quickly. The gunfire erupted. We’re talking about small children. They witnessed something very traumatic. It’s likely the last thing they did see was indeed that truck and the driver in that truck.”
