Via Boston Globe:

Six people were stabbed early Sunday on Tremont Street in the Theater District.

One of those wounded is critical and in surgery, police said.

Boston Police Superintendent Bernard O’Rourke said police have identified a suspect. Emerson College sent an alert to its students stating that two suspects were at large.

Police responded to the scene around 2:15 a.m., according to O’Rourke. The area has a fair amount of bars and clubs that close at 2 a.m.

Upon arriving for a report of a fight, officers came across stabbing victims, the O’Rourke said.

Some of the wounds were knife wounds, others were because people were stabbed with bottles, O’Rourke said.

The college, which has a number of facilities nearby, sent an alert to its students early Sunday, asking them to report any “suspicious activity.”

According to Emerson’s e-mail alert, two suspects remain at large. A police spokesman, however, said that one victim, “did survive some wounds,” is believed to be the suspect.

Overnight Open Thread: Snow For Spunky

TX (KEYE/CNN) – After a veterinarian diagnosed 12-year-old Spunky with cancer, his owner fulfilled her promise that he would get to see snow again.

Ashley Niels says she was shocked when she took her dog to the vet and was told he had cancer. She was told there was nothing that could be done for him.

Amidst her grief, Niels remembered she had promised her snow-loving dog that he would see snow again. The two had moved from Wisconsin to Texas years earlier.

“It really kind of crushed me that I would have to break that,” Niels said.

But Niels turned to Facebook for help, and her friends answered her call. They rented a backyard snow-machine for Spunky.

“It was really touching. They wanted to make sure I didn’t have to break that promise to him,” Niels said.

So much snow was produced that a local animal shelter allowed other dogs to join in the fun. Niels says the memory of that day will stick with her forever.

Looks like the shooter.

Update:

The ‘person of interest’ is Arcan Cetin, who was born in Adana, Turkey, is 20 years old and lives in Oak Harbor, Washington.

Cetin’s neighbor who saw him being arrested and took pictures of the arrest, says that Cetin’s ex-girlfriend and her grandmother were among those shot in the Macy’s. That has not been confirmed yet.

Update:

Usually, you hear from the neighbors or friends “oh he was quiet”, “he was nice”, or “we never would have known”.

Not so here. Multiple women on Facebook accused him of grabbing women and one even calling him a pervert against women who should ‘rot in hell’.

Now we cannot know if those allegations are true, it’s clear that they hold no fond memories of this guy.

And also a Hillary supporter.

Update:

According to My Northwest:

He graduated from Oak Harbor High School in 2015.

In 2015, Cetin was involved in a 4th degree assault in Oak Harbor. As a result, the court ordered him to go under a mental health evaluation which was completed in March 2016, according to KIRO 7. He was ordered not to use drugs or alcohol during this time. On Aug. 25, 2016, he was found in compliance with all court orders, including weekly mental health counseling.

Social Justice Warrior Kaepernick Kneels And Oakland High School Football Team Lays Down During The National Anthem…

A real role model and pillar of the community.

Via ESPN:

Colin Kaepernick joined a high school football team in its protest Friday night in Oakland, California, where numerous players were photographed lying on their backs with their hands raised while the San Francisco 49ers quarterback kneeled during the pregame playing of the national anthem.

Kaepernick visited with players from Castlemont High School and spoke with the team in the locker room before the game, telling them that “you are important, you make a difference, this matters. Everything you do matters.”

Castlemont’s football team gained attention in the Bay Area last weekend when players kneeled with their fists raised in the air during the national anthem.

Videos began circulating early Saturday morning on social media of Kaepernick addressing the team and thanking them for their initial protest.

“I had to come support you all, because the same way you all took a stand and stood with me, I had to come out here and stand with you all,” Kaepernick told the players. “So I appreciate what you all did. I love you all. You all are my brothers, I’m here with you.”

The photo of the players and coaches lying on their backs, tweeted by former NFL linebacker Kirk Morrison among others, also shows Kaepernick in the background on one knee.

Target Gets Rid Of Kid-Sized ‘Demon Mini Carts’ After Backlash From Moms…

Transgender bathrooms still open.

Via WITI:

Target got rid of kid-sized shopping carts after a backlash from shoppers who ridiculed them as irritating and even demonic.

Target introduced the kiddie carts in a handful of stores last year and expanded the test in New York and Minnesota last month. But they didn’t last long. In fact, they’re already gone.

The backlash gained steam when Laura Rinas, a Minneapolis mother who writes the blog Laughing Without Limits, wrote that the newly introduced “vehicle of mass destruction” ruined her otherwise “magical” shopping experience at Target.

Last week she started a movement called Moms Against Stupid Tiny Carts. Other shoppers quickly joined in. The anger seemed to stem from the recklessness of the carts’ diminutive drivers.

“I share this mom’s struggle!” Kara Stemig wrote. “BAN ALL KID CARTS!”

Not everyone was happy to see them go. Other parents tweeted photos of their toddlers happily steering and loading up their little carts.

Target removed the carts because of repeated complaints and is trying to figure out what to do with them, spokeswoman Molly Snyder said. Target will still offer carts for children with special needs, which it introduced last year.

Friend Of Officer Brentley Vinson Describes A ‘Man Of Faith’…

A role model for the community.

Via WBTV:

A man who is friends with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police officer who shot and killed Keith Lamont Scott is speaking out. Mike Scurlock says Officer Brentley Vinson is a man of faith.

Scurlock told WBTV he met Vinson in a bible study group for people who play football.

“He’s a great person,” Scurlock said. “He is always smiling.”

Scurlock said Vinson looked forward to a life of fighting crime.

“He was very excited when he was able to get through CMPD academy,” he said. “He was very excited.”

The friend said Vinson would often speak at Scurlock’s program designed for young people.

“Give kids insight on how to make wise decisions that can affect you within your life. He has given a lot of great messages,” Scurlock said.

When news broke that Vinson was the officer who shot and killed Scott, Scurlock said his heart sank.

“You hurt for both families,” Scurlock said. “For Mr. Scott’s family, and also for Mr. Vinson as well.”

The violent protests that erupted after the shooting has the friend concerned.

“Violence does absolutely nothing,” he said. “It doesn’t get us anywhere. It actually hinders the progression of where we want to go.”

University Of Vermont’s Burlington Campus Is Flying A Black Lives Matter Flag Alongside Both The American And State Flags…

blm-flag-uvm

Which flag would Colin Kaepernick stand for?

Via Campus Reform:

The University of Vermont’s Burlington campus is flying a Black Lives Matter flag alongside both the American and state flags.

Several students from the school took to social media to express their support for the move, with some saying the school is “winning for this” and another noting that since the school is supportive of the movement, “we should be too.”

One local news outlet is reporting that the flag is being sponsored by the school’s Student Government Association (SGA), whose president called the move a way to “show symbolic support for our community.”

“The Student Government Association is sponsoring the flag at this time to show symbolic support for our community when so many are struggling with the violence and search for justice in this country,” SGA president Jason Maulucci wrote in a statement. “It is fitting that the flag flies adjacent to the recently engraved benches that pronounce the values of Our Common Ground—Respect, Integrity, Innovation, Openness, Justice, and Responsibility.”

The flag apparently appeared on campus the day after the start of the riots in Charlotte, which have left at least one person on life support and several others injured.

Many students at the school, though, say they are happy to see the BLM flag on their campus, with some even saying they would like to see the flag stay up on campus “forever.”

“Even though it’s maybe not affecting Vermont specifically, UVM is saying you should care even though it’s not in our region,” student Nishani Kessler told WCAX News.

“UVM putting the flag up and opening the visibility up on campus just really hits close to home for such a small community of people of color on this campus it really speaks really loudly to all the students around here,” another added.

Other students, however, object to the decision to fly the BLM flag in such a prominent location, right outside the Student Center.

“The university is known for being very liberal, but this statement of support for Black Lives Matter goes beyond anything that can be excused,” one student, who did not wish to be identified, told Campus Reform. “A public university, funded by the taxpayers…has no right to make such a blatant political statement. It is inappropriate for a public university, where opinions and views are supposed to be freely expressed, as BLM is known…to stifle free speech.”

Netanyahu to meet Hillary, Trump Sunday in NYC…

Within commuting distance for the Scooby van.

Via Times of Israel:

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will reportedly meet on Sunday with presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in New York, as part of his trip to the US which also included a meeting with President Barack Obama on Wednesday, a UN General Assembly address Thursday and a meeting with US Secretary of State John Kerry Friday.

The meetings with the rival nominees, who are running neck-and-neck according to recent polls, will take place separately in New York on Sunday.

A senior Israeli official in New York said Thursday that neither Clinton nor Trump had asked to meet with Netanyahu, according to a Bloomberg report.

The official told Bloomberg that Netanyahu has so far avoided meeting either candidate to avoid accusations made during the 2012 presidential campaigns that he was interfering in US politics. Netanyahu was widely seen as favoring then Republican nominee Mitt Romney, hosting him in Jerusalem just three months before the vote.

Proof That The NY/NJ Bomber Is No ‘Lone Wolf’

screen-shot-2016-09-24-at-3-14-39-pm

Via NY Post:

Last Saturday’s NYC bombing is yet another case of terrorism and hatred for America not being isolated to a “lone wolf” but running in the family. We’ve seen this horror before, in Orlando, San Bernardino, Chattanooga and Boston — Muslim families playing dumb after their son goes on a terrorist rampage, only to find out later that the family supported or at least sympathized with terrorism.

The latest evidence of yet another family supporting a terrorist is damning: Two days before Ahmad Rahami allegedly planted the Chelsea bomb that injured 31, a family member used a cellphone video camera to film him testing bombs in the back yard of the New Jersey residence/chicken shack where he had lived and worked with his parents. After one “cylindrical” device explodes, unidentified people are overheard laughing on the recording, an FBI document reveals.

The video isn’t the only piece of evidence suggesting the fiend’s family may have known about his plot. A cellphone used as a timer to detonate the Chelsea bomb “was subscribed in the name of a family member,” FBI Special Agent Peter Licata wrote in the government’s 13-page complaint filed against Rahami.

“We’ve seen this horror before…Muslim families playing dumb after their son goes on a terrorist rampage.”

NY Times Claims Keith Scott Was “Unarmed Black Man”

screen-shot-2016-09-24-at-5-00-40-pm

First the AP claims that the Officer who killed was white, now this?

One might almost think they were trying to distort the facts.

The Chief of Police has already said that Keith Scott was armed. A gun was found on the scene. In a video released by Scott’s wife, officers can be heard telling Scott to ‘Drop the gun!”. Scott’s wife can be heard telling her husband, “Don’t do it!”. The video shows the gun at Scott’s feet after the shooting. A still picture released by media also shows the gun at Scott’s feet.

But NY Times calls him ‘unarmed’.

They have since pulled the original tweet and ‘corrected’ it to ‘unclear if he was armed’.

Trump Threatens To Bring Gennifer Flowers To Debate…UPDATE: Gennifer Flowers Accepts Invitation…

Hillary will end up cross-eyed.

Via The Hill:

Donald Trump on Saturday threatened to bring a woman that Bill Clinton had an extramarital affair with when he debates Hillary Clinton.

“If dopey Mark Cuban of failed Benefactor fame wants to sit in the front row, perhaps I will put Jennifer Flowers [sic] right alongside of him!” Trump initially tweeted.

Shortly after, Trump deleted the tweet and reposted it with the correct spelling of Gennifer Flowers’s first name.

Bill Clinton testified under oath in 1998 that he had a sexual affair with Flowers.

Trump was responding to billionaire Mark Cuban, a Hillary Clinton supporter who frequently slams Trump. Cuban on Thursday said he accepted an invitation from Clinton to sit in the front row at Monday’s presidential debate.

Trump’s public reference to Bill Clinton’s extramarital affairs will likely roil the presidential race just two days before the first debate.

Update:

Via BuzzFeed:

Gennifer Flowers, the former model who had an extramarital affair with Bill Clinton in the 1980s, says she’ll accept an invitation from Donald Trump to sit in the front row of Monday’s presidential debate, according to an assistant.

The prospect of Flowers attending the debate was raised on Saturday when Trump tweeted that he would put her in the audience, if billionaire and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban sat in the front row.

“If dopey Mark Cuban of failed Benefactor fame wants to sit in the front row, perhaps I will put Jennifer Flowers right alongside of him!” Trump tweeted Saturday afternoon.

An assistant to Flowers told BuzzFeed News in the past she had declined such invitations, not wanting to be a “sideshow,” but said she would forward the invite to Flowers.

In an email to BuzzFeed News, Judy Stell, her personal assistant then confirmed she would be attending.

“Ms. Flowers has agreed to join Donald at the debate,” she said.

No Grease Barbershop Gets Spared From Riots In Uptown Charlotte…

Need to look good for the cameras with a fresh haircut later on.

Via WBTV:

The owners of No Grease Barbershop are relieved their business remained untouched during a night of violence. Several businesses were damaged near the barbershop as rioters took to the streets of uptown Charlotte Wednesday night.

They were responding to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Officer shooting and killing of Keith Lamont Scott. Rioters shattered windows and stole items from stores, but no damage was done to No Grease.

Several businesses are using plywood to cover windows.

“The people that were part of the protest – whether they were there for good or not so good – they knew us and made sure we were protected from any type of damage,” No Grease co-owner Damian Johnson said.

Johnson said two workers stayed behind to keep an eye on the shop. They told Johnson when the agitators arrived in front of the shop, they exchanged some words.

“They said, ‘we know them, they’re good,'” Johnson said.

The owner believes the rioters didn’t touch No Grease because of the work he has done in the community. Johnson graduated from Johnson C. Smith University, set up a business in Charlotte and has sponsored programs to help empower the community.

“If they hadn’t identified with us, or had some type of relationship or knew who we were, we would be bordered up also,” Johnson said.

Other No Grease barbers were hoping the shop would be spared.

“It was a very powerful image for me,” No Grease Barber Mario Askew said. “I was actually prepared to be in a No Grease T-shirt and my Timberland boots. I was prepared to be cleaning up glass and cleaning up after the aftermath, but to not have any damage – is amazing to me.”

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on Friday filed a petition for writ of certiorari asking the United States Supreme Court to reinstate Texas’ voter ID law.

“Safeguarding the integrity of our elections is essential to preserving our democracy,” Attorney General Paxton said in a statement. “Voter ID laws both prevent fraud and increase the public’s confidence in our elections. Texas enacted a common-sense voter ID law and I am confident that the U.S. Supreme Court will ultimately reinstate it.”

The petition asks the Supreme Court to decide two questions:

1. Whether Texas’ voter-ID law “results in” the abridgement of voting rights on account of race.

2. Whether judgment should be rendered for petitioners on the claim that Texas’ voter-ID law was enacted with a racially

The petition also claims the recent 5th Circuit Court of Appeals decision in the case creates a split amongst the Circuits.
