POLICE ARE crediting a vigilant gun owner with saving the life of an Upper Darby cop Friday after he saw the officer being attacked and surrounded by a large group of teens.
“There were 40 kids. If it wasn’t for the good Samaritan stepping forward, he’d have been dead meat,” Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said. “There’s no doubt they would have attacked him.”
About 3 p.m. every weekday, from six to eight township police officers patrol the area near Upper Darby High School as nearly 4,000 kids pour out of the building on Lansdowne Avenue near School Lane.
Most kids and most days are good, Chitwood said.
Friday was not.
That afternoon alone, police responded to three fights in three locations near the school. When the dust settled, eight teens, ages 13 to 17, were charged with crimes, and two officers were injured so severely that it’s unclear when they’ll be able to return to work, Chitwood said.
The most egregious of the incidents took place on Wayne Avenue near Marshall Road, less than a mile from the high school.
An officer who broke up a fight between two teen boys that had attracted a large crowd at that location was holding one of the combatants at bay when the teen’s opponent attacked the officer, Chitwood said.
“As he breaks up the fight, he takes one kid and then the other jumps [on] him. Now he’s fighting two of them and he’s calling for an assist officer at the same time,” Chitwood said. “There’s a crowd of 40 or 50 kids watching the fight, and they all move in towards the officer.”
That’s when the good Samaritan, who lives on the block, came out of his house with a gun in his hand and told the teens to get away from the cop, Chitwood said.
“He had the gun in his hand, but he didn’t point it at the kids, he just told them to back off,” Chitwood said. “If this guy didn’t come out and come to the aid of the officer, this officer would have had significant problems.”

BREAKING: Man Attacks People In Ohio Restaurant With Machete, Police Take Him Out With Taxpayer Relief Shot –UPDATE: Suspect Was Muslim Man On FBI Watch List…
We need machete control.
Columbus police have shot and killed a man after they say he went into a Mediterranean restaurant on the Northeast Side this evening and attacked several patrons with a machete.
According to a dispatcher, police were called just after 6 p.m. to the Nazareth Restaurant, 5239 N. Hamilton Road. The dispatcher said that six people were transported to area hospitals from the restaurant, though their names and the extent of their injuries aren’t known at this time.
The suspect then reportedly fled and was stopped by police about 5 miles away, off Stelzer Road and just south of Montclair Drive.
He was shot by police, the dispatcher said, and died at OhioHealth Grant Medical Center at 6:24 p.m.
Further information and the name of the suspect aren’t available at this time.
HT: Breaking 911
UPDATE: Religion of Peace
CBS News has identified the suspect as Mohamed Barry, however neither 10TV nor Columbus Police have confirmed the suspect’s name. CBS News also reports Barry has a Somali background and may have traveled to Dubai in 2012.
Law enforcement tells them the incident appears to be the type of “lone wolf terrorist attacks they’re trying to stop.”
The FBI is assisting in the investigation.
It’s not like it’s a sign of oppression.

Officials at Rochester’s World School of Inquiry spent last week fielding dozens of calls from parents angry about a “World Hijab Day” event that encouraged girls to wear the Muslim religious head covering.
Sophomore Eman Muthana wears a hijab to school and wrote a letter to principal Sheela Webster asking if the school can put on its own World Hijab Day at the school last Friday, WHAM reports.
Webster approved the event – designed to educate students about the religious purposes behind the hijab – but did not inform parents until after the media reports of the event sparked backlash online, and angry calls to the school, according to WHEC.
“As a high school teacher for over 30 years, let me say that this is wrong on so many levels,” Jim Farnholz wrote, according to the news site.
“All religions are taught in our global studies classes. That being said, that is where understanding, tolerance and the good and bad of religion and history are taught. This, however, is a clear violation of separation of church and state.”
WHEC reports teachers brought in about 150 scarves in on Friday and wrapped up volunteers before the first bell. The school set up tables in the cafeteria, where girls tried on a hijab and boys were given carnations for support, according to WHEC, which described the event as “student run.”

Drew — Yesterday was simply amazing. After Donald Trump’s big win in New Hampshire, it was critical that we hit our one-day 5,000 supporter goal — and our incredible grassroots supporters like you made it happen! Thank you! We’re getting right to work:
- Holding Republicans accountable for their failed policies
- Launching Phase One of our groundbreaking Mobilization Protect
- Putting staff on the ground in several battleground states
Now, back to Trump. His New Hampshire victory showed us that we have to take him seriously. We CANNOT allow this “racist, sexist demagogue” (Huffington Post) anywhere near the White House.
That time of the week again.
Bernie Sanders a DEMOCRATIC Socialist says he's in favor of skirting our democratic process pic.twitter.com/UkAhSqGDjk

Hey Bernie, if Congress doesn’t do what a President wants, the President doesn’t have the right to break the law or make new law. We already have had one lying dictator, we don’t need another.
What was Hillary’s debate response? Hillary said she agreed with all of Obama’s unconstitutional executive orders.
Moderators not only didn’t challenge the candidates’ proposals to break the law, the moderators also didn’t question the candidates about the Court decision finding Obama’s immigration executive actions illegal. So the candidates apparently would just continue the illegal actions Obama started. And Sanders said he would go even further than did Obama.

As David Brock said, it’s time to tarnish up Sanders’ ‘purity’. The Congressional Black Caucus has endorsed Hillary so naturally Rep. John Lewis suddenly casts aspersions on Sanders, did he do what claimed he did during the Civil Rights era.
I’d bet more on Sanders civil rights record than I would on Hillary being ‘under fire’ in Bosnia…

I expect some desperation from Grandma tonight, so it may be fun to see her completely losing what’s left of her mind.
Bernie: there is no one who has the power to take on Wall St. and media alone. It’s not just about electing a president, it’s about creating a political revolution. [people don’t get what he’s saying here and they should]. It isn’t just about progressive agenda, it’s about bringing everyone together and not just 1%
Hillary: we agree on Wall St, but I am not a single issue candidate. Whether it’s poison of the kids in Flint or the poor coal miners, or if you feel put down by racism and sexism and lgbt, we have to stand up for unions and working people [who else can I pander too, please give me more groups!]
Q: Sanders, Can you name two leaders who have influenced you?
Bernie: FDR [figures the origin of the expansion of government into the lives of everyone].and that’s what it’s about now. Don’t listen to the Trumps of world. We can have everything. Winston Churchill as a war time leader rallied the people against the nazi juggernaut.
Hillary: I agree with Bernie on FDR for all the reasons he said. I would choose Mandela for his generosity of heart [and pandering to blacks in South Carolina] Talking about leadership Sanders attacked Obama, I don’t think he gets credit he deserves considering what he inherited from Republicans. I expect criticism of him form Republicans not from you.
Bernie: That’s a low blow. I have worked with President Obama for 8 years. We have made enormous progress. Last I heard we are a free society. I have expressed criticisms.
Hillary: calling him weak is not fair, is personal.
Bernie: one of us ran against Obama, I was not that candidate.

This is being reported as a ceasefire across the media. But if you listen to the weasel words in it, it isn’t quite that.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry says diplomats meeting in Munich have agreed to work with Syrian parties to implement a “nationwide cessation of hostilities.”
Kerry said early Friday that the target is to implement the cease-fire in a week’s time. He said that would not apply to the Islamic State group and the extremist al-Nusra Front.
Kerry said diplomats from the U.S., Russia and other powers also agreed to “accelerate and expand” the delivery of humanitarian aid immediately, bringing aid to besieged areas.
A working group is to start meeting in Geneva Immediately to oversee that.

CNN’s Tapper Challenges DNC Chair To Explain Why After Crushing Defeat, Hillary Gets Same Number Of Delegates As Bernie
Tough to explain how it’s not rigged, when it is.
Via Daily Caller:
CNN’s Jake Tapper confronted Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz over the “rigged” process in New Hampshire that left Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton with the same number of delegates despite Sanders’ 22 point shellacking of Clinton.
Appearing on CNN’s “The Lead” with Jake Tapper on Thursday, after Wasserman Schultz attempted an explanation, Tapper said, “I’m not sure that, that answer would satisfy an anxious young voter.” (RELATED: After Crushing Defeat, DNC Quirk Still Gives Hillary More New Hampshire Delegates Than Sanders)

The Oregon standoff came to an end on Thursday, its 41st day, after the four remaining armed occupiers at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge turned themselves in and were taken into federal custody.
David Fry, the last occupier, was taken into FBI custody at around 2 p.m. ET after several tense hours of negotiations with the FBI. Fry, 27, who livestreamed the conversation, threatened to shoot himself, saying : “I’ll kill myself before you guys [expletive] do it.” After grabbing a cookie and some cigarettes, Fry walked out of the refuge and into FBI custody as his livestreamed audio was switched off.

The NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating a possible anti-white bias attack in Brooklyn — the second in a week.
A 51-year-old man walking along Nostrand Avenue near Glenwood Road in Flatbush was forcefully knocked to the ground by a 6-foot-1 black man around 3:40 p.m. Monday, police sources said.
The victim told investigators that the assailant shouted, “This is for Malcolm X, cracker!” as he fell to the ground, sources said.
The man suffered pain in his neck, back and left shoulder, but refused medical attention at the scene.
Police are also investigating another possible bias attack on Sunday involving a man who allegedly sucker-punched straphanger Randy Aveille, 44, at the Church Avenue subway station at 9:45 p.m. Feb. 5 and spewed racial hatred at him.
Cops released surveillance video of Aveille’s attacker on Wednesday in hopes of tracking him down.
Authorities are investigating whether the attacks are related, sources said.
Aveille told The Post on Sunday that he had just gotten off the subway with his girlfriend and was headed to the steps when a man came from behind and began pummeling him in his face.
“I was blindsided by a guy who started hitting my face,” Aveille said. “I was walking, and as I was approaching the steps, somebody came from behind me.”
He said his fiancée heard the man say, “Watch who you look at!”

Investigators with the State Department issued a subpoena to the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation last fall seeking documents about the charity’s projects that may have required approval from the federal government during Hillary Clinton’s term as secretary of state, according to people familiar with the subpoena and written correspondence about it.
The subpoena also asked for records related to Huma Abedin, a longtime Clinton aide who for six months in 2012 was employed simultaneously by the State Department, the foundation, Clinton’s personal office, and a private consulting firm with ties to the Clintons.
The full scope and status of the inquiry, conducted by the State Department’s inspector general, were not clear from the material correspondence reviewed by The Washington Post.

Strapped with a booby-trapped vest and sent by Boko Haram to kill as many people as possible, the young teenage girl tore off the explosives and fled as soon as she was out of sight of her handlers.
Her two companions, however, completed their grisly mission and walked into a crowd of hundreds at Dikwa refugee camp in northeast Nigeria and blew themselves up, killing 58 people.
Later found by local self-defense forces, the girl’s tearful account is one of the first indications that at least some of the child bombers used by Boko Haram are aware that they are about to die and kill others.
“She said she was scared because she knew she would kill people, but she was also frightened of going against the instructions of the men who brought her to the camp,” said Modu Awami, a self-defense fighter who helped question the girl.
