Some music for Friday… Dittohead by Slayer

And then a parody of this video, featuring characters from Sesame Street. Casting Oscar as Tom Araya was great, only wish he’d been playing a bass. I have a new-found respect for Grover — he did the guitar work of both Kerry King and Jeff Hanneman at the same time. It only makes sense that it would take both Bert and Ernie to do the drumming that Dave Lombardo does by himself.

More Shots Fired at Marine Corps Museum in Va.

FBI investigating shots fired overnight at the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Quantico, Va. — the second time the building has been hit with gunfire and the fourth shooting at a D.C.-area military facility in two weeks.


Man Shot Dead After Refusing His Turn in Russian Roulette

A group of men were drinking and playing Russian roulette at a party in Delaware last weekend. As if out of a scene from The Deer Hunter, when one of the men refused his turn, another took the gun, pointed it at the man’s head and pulled the trigger.

A bullet was in the chamber for that round of the “game.” The man was shot dead.

Wilmington police say two illegal immigrants have been charged with murder in the shooting death of Juan Tomas Chaves Robles, 30, of Mexico, during that game of Russian roulette.

Police said Wednesday that 31-year-old Antonio Vieyra was charged with second-degree murder, and 28-year-old Cecilio Mendez-Ballesteros was charged with first-degree murder. Both men also were charged with possession of a deadly weapon during a felony.

Master Sgt. Steven Barnes says the men had been drinking with others Saturday at a house on the 1100 block of West Third Street – the house where the alleged shooter, Mendez-Ballesteros, was living.

The victim, Robles, had been at the home of the party since Friday, Barnes told The News Journal.

Barnes says officers found Robles dead of a gunshot wound to the head about 4:45 p.m. Saturday.


Wow, there are so many things wrong here….
1) Illegals
2) Rule 2 violation (Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy)
3) Murder
I could go on but that’s a start…

Entire police force in Los Ramones, Mexico quits after gunmen attack headquarters

The entire police force in a small Mexican town abruptly resigned Tuesday after its new headquarters was viciously attacked by suspected drug cartel gunmen.

All 14 police officers in Los Ramones, a rural town in northern Mexico, fled the force in terror after gunmen fired more than 1,000 bullets and flung six grenades at their headquarters on Monday night.

No one was injured in the attack. Mayor Santos Salinas Garza told local media that the officers resigned because of the incident.

The gunmen’s 20-minute shooting spree destroyed six police vehicles and left the white and orange police station pocked with bullet holes, the Financial Times reported.

The station had been inaugurated just three days earlier.

The attack was the second in less than a week against police forces in Nuevo Leon. Last week, thugs threw two grenades at police in Sabinas Hidalgo, according to newspaper Noroeste.

Los Ramones is in the Mexican state of Nuevo Leon, which has been a war zone of turf violence between two of the country’s fiercest drug gangs, the Zetas and the Gulf cartel.

Police have blamed members of both cartels for attacks on several police stations throughout the area. Several mayors in the region have been assassinated.

Mexico’s municipal police forces often quit out of fear after being attacked by cartels.

About 90% of forces have less than 100 officers, and 61% of cops earn less than $322 a month, according to the Finanical Times.

Mexico’s intelligence chief said this summer that nearly 30,000 people have died in drug related crimes since 2006.
