Fellow Army reservists say ‘We all knew he was Off’ | July 2016

EQUIPPED FOR WAR: Dallas sniper Micah Xavier Johnson had body armor, rifle and handgun during cop killings — fellow Army reservists say ‘we all knew he was off’

– NY Daily News

“We all knew he was off, man, but no idea he was capable of that.”

“The sniper who shot 12 Dallas police officers at a Black Lives Matter protest — killing five — was identified Friday as a former Army reservist who was equipped for war.

Micah Xavier Johnson, 25, was wearing body armor and toting an SKS semi-automatic assault rifle and a handgun when he started picking off cops in downtown Dallas Thursday night, a law enforcement source told CBS News.

In his home, investigators found a massive cache of weapons — bomb-making materials, ballistic vests, rifles, ammunition and a personal journal of combat tactics, authorities said.

Johnson was well-trained in using the weapons of war. He served as a reservist for six years until 2015 and was deployed to Afghanistan between Nov. 2013 and July 2014, an Army spokeswoman told the Daily News.

He was a carpentry and masonry specialist, with a rank of private first class, and was awarded the Army Achievement Medal.

But he didn’t have an especially glowing reputation among members of his unit.

“We all knew he was a pervert cuz he got caught stealing girls panties but murdering cops is a different story,” Wells Newsome, a former bunkmate of Johnson’s, wrote on Facebook.

“You really never know what someone is capable of until it’s too late.”

Luis Canto, another fellow reservist, said Johnson had an erratic personality.

“We all knew he was off, man, but no idea he was capable of that,” Canto wrote on Facebook.

The cold-blooded cop assassinations carried out by Johnson, who had no criminal record or ties to terror groups, stunned his family members.

“I keep saying it’s not true,” Johnson’s sister Nicole said in a Facebook post. “My eyes hurt from crying. Y him??? And why was he downtown.”

In light of his fellow reservists comments, we need to reflect on the 2nd Amendment which states:

Amendment II

Right to bear arms

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

From the DailyKos:

What is the mechanism by which “proper discipline and training” is provided to members of this militia?  How well disciplined was Adam Lanza? James Holmes? Jared Loughner? Cho Seung Hui?

Until this so-called militia is being adequately regulated, the purported right of the people to keep and bear arms MUST be infringed.  If it is not regulated (or infringed upon), such a militia actually undermines and threatens the security of the state.

From Lectlaw:

“To determine the meaning of the Constitution, one must start with the words of the Constitution itself. If the meaning is plain, that meaning controls. To ascertain the meaning of the term “well regulated” as it was used in the Second Amendment, it is necessary to begin with the purpose of the Second Amendment itself. The overriding purpose of the Framers in guaranteeing the right of the people to keep and bear arms was as a check on the standing army, which the Constitution gave the Congress the power to “raise and support.”

From Constitution.org

– from the comments section: “A restrictive phrase like “well-regulated” has to be understood in historical context. What the framers did not want was armed unruly mobs who can’t shoot straight or who don’t know what to shoot at. They also didn’t want men who would not respond to a call-up or not know where to go or what to do. The problem was usually solved by having the militia units elect their commanders, then having those commanders issue regular training call-ups and organize them into teams, train them, make sure that if the threat is a criminal, that the criminal is arrested and held for trial and not just summarily executed.

Having militia units also regulated by statute or ordinance or by state-issued instruction manuals is one form of regulation, but keep in mind that the militia that initially fought the War of Independence were not organized or commanded by state-authorities, because at that time state governors were appointed by the Crown. It was only after independence and state authorities began to be elected that one could contemplate regulation by the state.

But the Second Amendment also contemplates defending the freedom of the state from an oppressive union government, not just some foreign invader.

By the way, in those days the word “state” meant a community of people in exclusive possession of a well-defined territory, which might or might not have a legitimate government. So defending a free state could mean defending people from an oppressive state government.

During the War for Independence militia were the initial forces on the American side. It was militia who won at the Battle of Saratoga, which is what led the King of France to support the Americans. The Continental Army was composed of militiamen who enrolled for fixed terms of service, for pay, and while serving were expected to become well-trained. That was the contribution of Von Steuben, to train them to function as trained units that would stand and fight, move in an orderly manner, and execute planned maneuvers.”

11 officers shot, 5 dead, SWAT in standoff with 1 person after shooting after Dallas rally

– Dallas Morning News

What we know so far:

*  4 Dallas police officers, one DART officer killed

*  Six officers and one civilian wounded

* One suspect was dead in a garage at El Centro College after exchanging gunfire with with police.

* A woman near the shootout in the garage is in custody

Snipers fatally shot three Dallas police officers and one DART officer, and wounded several others as a demonstration against shootings of black men by police wrapped up Thursday night.

Dallas police Chief David Brown said about 8:58 p.m., at least two snipers shot 11 officers and one civilian from elevated positions with rifles during the rally in downtown.

Two officers were in surgery earlier in the night and three were in critical condition, police said.

Three other DART officers were wounded but their injuries were not believed to be life-threatening, said Morgan Lyons, a spokesman for DART.

The officers were shot “ambush style,” Brown said, with some shot in the back.

“Give our officers strength to catch these suspects and bring them to justice tonight,” he said.

About 1:20 a.m., an explosion went off at El Centro. It was unclear whether police detonated a suspicious package they found earlier or if it was something else, such as a flashbang intended to distract the suspect who remained in the parking garage.

At a 12:30 a.m. news conference, Brown said officers had been exchanging gunfire for 45 minutes with a man the garage who was not cooperating.

“He has told our negotiators that the end is coming and he’s going to hurt and kill more of us –meaning law enforcement — and that there are bombs all over the place in this garage and in downtown,” Brown said. He said police aren’t certain they have all the suspects.

“We as a city, we as a country must come together, lock arms and heal the wounds that we all feel from time to time,” he said. “Words matter, leadership matters at this time. I’m proud of our chief.”

Rawlings asked for everyone to focus on the officers, their families and those fighting for their lives.

“It is a heartbreaking morning to lose these four officers who proudly served our citizens,” Rawlings said. “To say that our police officers put their lives on the line every day is no hyperbole, ladies and gentlemen, it’s a reality.”

German agency accuses Iran of trying to buy nuclear technology after 2015 deal

Intelligence report tracks last year’s activity before and after July atomic accord

Iran has attempted to acquire nuclear technology in Germany even after the atomic accord it reached with western powers in Vienna last July, according to the German domestic intelligence agency.

The annual report of the Bundesamt für Verfassungsschutz (BfV) said that illegal Iranian attempts to procure technology “continued on a quantitatively high level by international standards” in Germany in 2015.

“This was particularly the case for merchandise that could be deployed in the field of nuclear technology,” the report said. There was also an increase in Iranian efforts to buy parts for missiles that could be fitted with nuclear warheads, it added.

California gang members charged in attacks targeting blacks

“Los Angeles (AFP) – Seven members of a notorious Los Angeles street gang with ties to the Mexican Mafia were charged in an indictment unsealed Thursday for their role in attacks targeting African-Americans.

The men, all members of the Big Hazard gang, allegedly took part in the 2014 firebombing of several residences of African-Americans in the city’s Boyle Heights neighborhood in a bid to push blacks out, according to the indictment handed down June 22.

“The defendants used firebombs to drive the victims from their homes because of their race,” said Vanita Gupta, head of the Justice Department’s civil rights division. “This is a hate crime.

“Such violence and intimidation have no place in our society.”

Authorities said the attacks were spurred by the gang’s bid to reclaim control of the neighborhood’s Ramona Gardens housing project, once a bleak crime-infested area where the police dared enter only in groups.

In recent years, however, crime has lessened in Ramona Gardens and more black families have moved in.

The indictment alleges that Hazard members would spray paint or “tag” gang monikers and symbols on businesses and residences in the neighborhood and would meet to discuss ways to deter blacks from living there.

On May 12, 2014, the gang members, wearing gloves and disguises, went on a firebombing rampage, authorities said.

They split into groups, breaking victims’ windows before hurling the firebombs to maximize damage, according to the charge sheet.

Following the attacks nearly 40 gang members were indicted in 2014 on drug-related and other charges but the firebombing attacks went unresolved.

The seven men named in the 10-count indictment unsealed Thursday were identified as Carlos Hernandez, 31; Jose Saucedo, 22; Francisco Farias, 25; Joseue Garibay, 23; Edwin Felix, 23; Jonathan Portillo, 21; and 21-year-old Joel Monarrez.

They were charged with conspiracy to violate civil rights, arson, carrying explosives, racketeering and several other related crimes.

Saucedo, aka “Lil’ Moe,” allegedly would confront black residents in Ramona Gardens, including children, and bluntly tell them they were not welcome in the neighborhood and risked harm if they stayed.

Saucedo and his co-defendants face maximum prison sentences of 110 to 115 years or life behind bars.”
