Christianity is the religion of peace

The suspect was allegedly threatening people in the Muslim community on Facebook. He is also reported to have aimed a gun at some local Muslims and threatened to kill them:

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A teenager who was is in surgery at Children’s Mercy Hospital after being hit by a man driving an SUV near Admiral Boulevard and The Paseo on Thursday night has died. The 15-year-old boy lost a lot of blood when his legs were severed in what police believe was an intentional attack outside the Somali Center of Kansas City.

“It became pretty clear that this was not an accidental crash, there is a considerable amount of evidence that leads us to believe it was intentional,” Sergeant Bill Mahoney with KCPD said.

The teenage boy was getting into a car outside of the Somali Center when he was hit. A male suspect in his 30’s is in custody.

“Suspect apparently hit him and another individual as they were getting into a car that was parked along the north side of Admiral Boulevard,” Sgt. Mahoney said. “Vehicle then was damaged, he tried to leave the scene but couldn’t get anywhere in the vehicle. He bailed out of it, started running eastbound and was apprehended by officers.”

Good point

If this cop was really sorry, he’d admit he did something wrong:

The widow of Eric Garner, the unarmed black man who died after being put in what officials called a police “chokehold,” Wednesday night angrily rejected a gesture from the officer that offered her his prayers and condolences.

“Hell no. The time for remorse would have been when my husband was yelling to breathe. That would have been time for him to show some type of remorse, or some type of care for another human being’s life,” Esaw Garner said at a news conference when asked about the condolences offered by NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo after a grand jury earlier Wednesday declined to indict him for Eric Garner’s death on July 17.

“No I don’t accept his apology. No, I could care less about his condolences. He’s still working, he’s still getting a paycheck, he’s still feeding his kids. And my husband is six feet under, and I’m looking for a way to feed my kids now,” she said.

Allergies

Today I went to the allergist at U of P’s hospital for allergy tests. Oddly enough, the only positive reaction I had was to ragweed — that, and the histamine shot that made a big red golf ball appear under my skin. I didn’t have a positive reaction to dogs, cats, tree pollen, or dust — all of which make me sick as a dog.

I’ve never been allergic to ragweed. In fact, August (with peak ragweed) is the only time I don’t have a problem.

The doctor told me you can have a localized reaction to allergies, so my puzzlement didn’t last long. But the itching is still here. And the antihistamine they gave me is making me very sleepy.
