Life Under Obama - Second American Spaceship to Crash in a Week - Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo Crashes During Flight Test


Virgin Galactic said its SpaceShipTwo rocket plane suffered a "serious anomaly" during a powered test flight on Friday that resulted in the loss of the aircraft.

The anomaly occurred after the plane was released from its WhiteKnightTwo carrier airplane and fired up its rocket engine in flight for the first time in more than nine months. Sources said SpaceShipTwo exploded in midflight, and debris fell onto California's Mojave Desert.

"The WhiteKnightTwo carrier aircraft landed safely," Virgin Galactic said in a statement. "Our first concern is the status of the pilots, which is unknown at this time."

Two pilots, equipped with parachutes, fly in SpaceShipTwo's cockpit during SpaceShipTwo's test flights, which originate from the Mojave Air and Space Port, about 95 miles (150 kilometers) north of Los Angeles. A source at the Kern County Sheriff's Department told NBC News that two parachutes were deployed after the anomaly.

Photographer Ken Brown, who was covering the test flight, told NBC News that he saw an explosion high in the air and later came upon SpaceShipTwo debris scattered across a small area of the desert. The Mojave airport's director, Stuart Witt, told NBC News that the craft crashed north of Mojave. He deferred further comment pending a news conference that is scheduled for 2 p.m. PT (5 p.m. ET).

Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy tries again to sell aldermen on crime success story - NOBODY BUYS IT!


Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy tried again Thursday to sell his story that Chicago is turning the corner in the fight against violent crime, but it didn’t work with aldermen who don’t consider runaway overtime a substitute for police hiring.

Aldermen Willie Cochran (20th) and Ricardo Munoz (22nd) were furious that McCarthy showed up at City Council budget hearings unprepared or unwilling to provide aldermen with specific numbers on police hiring and attrition since Mayor Rahm Emanuel took office.

Emanuel campaigned on a promise to put 1,000 additional police officers on the street. But after taking office, he quickly revised the promise to include 1,000 more officers “on the beat.” He delivered half of those officers by disbanding specialized units. Hundreds of others came from reassigning officers from desk jobs to street duty.

"How can we have a conversation about staffing levels if the superintendent doesn’t have the numbers?," Munoz said. "It’s a trick not to have the conversation in public and I, for one, feel offended.”

Ferguson Store Owners: Customers ‘Too Scared’ to Bring Business to the Area


FERGUSON, Mo. (CBS ST. LOUIS) - Businesses in Ferguson say they are “going to wait and see” how to sustain what has been a tumultuous few months of riots and dramatically reduced revenue, with some local store owners saying customers are “too scared” to bring their business to the area.
Local stores and businesses throughout Ferguson expressed feelings of frustration and uncertainty as many have boarded-up windows, increased security measures and lost thousands of dollars in revenue amid protests stemming from the Aug. 9 police shooting death of Michael Brown. Many businesses said they will just have to wait and see what happens ahead of an expected November ruling on whether or not to indict officer Darren Wilson.
“We’ve lost $200 to $300 in business nightly, people are afraid to pick up in the night, after dark,” said Tammy Cao of the Hunan Chop Suey Chinese Restaurant. “People are too scared at night … I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.”
She said the store has “paid $1,500 out-of-pocket for window damages” caused by rioters, because the $5,000 insurance deductible “did not add up.”

TWO ILLEGAL BEANERS - Adam Flores-Ibarra, 26, and Saul Macias, 23 - charged after $1.4 million Elk Grove Village pot bust

Two men have been charged with drug possession after authorities discovered 1,700 pounds of marijuana hidden in pallets of soup crackers being unloaded at an Elk Grove Village warehouse.

Cook County Judge Joseph Cataldo on Wednesday ordered Adam Flores-Ibarra, 26, and Saul Macias, 23, held on $250,000 bail each.

The drugs have an estimated street value of $1.4 million, said Cook County Assistant State's Attorney Gbenga Longe.

Investigators from the Illinois State Police and the Drug Enforcement Administration planned to execute a search warrant Monday at a warehouse in the 1100 block of Howard Street when they saw the men unloading the pallets from a truck, Longe said.

Officers arrested Flores-Ibarra, who has lived in Elk Grove for about three weeks, and Macias, a resident of Deer Park, Texas, Longe said. She added that the office attached to the warehouse contained no files or paperwork indicating anyone conducted business there.

Longe asked Cataldo for a hearing on the source of bail funds if the defendants post the required $25,000. The hearing is to determine if the money comes from legitimate sources, Longe said.

If convicted, the men could face up to 15 years in prison. They next appear in court on Nov. 20.

Eric Frein, suspect in Pennsylvania trooper ambush, arrested without incident - Because he turned himself in!


Eric Frein, the suspect in the deadly ambush of a Pennsylvania state trooper, has been taken into custody after a seven-week manhunt, the Pennsylvania State Police announced Thursday night.

A law enforcement source told Fox News U.S. Marshals arrested Frein after obtaining information that he was hiding in an airport hangar near Buck Hill, the same general area where they had been searching for him.

They called him out and he surrendered without incident, the source said. He was armed but no shots were fired.

Frein, 31, allegedly opened fire outside the Blooming Grove state police barracks on Sept. 12, killing Trooper Bryon Dickson, 38, and seriously wounding Trooper Alex Douglass, 31.

Since then he had managed to elude a massive manhunt involving hundreds of state troopers, dozens of vehicles and a helium balloon.

Frein belonged to a military re-enactor's group, playing the part of a Serbian solder. He had a small role in a 2007 movie about a concentration camp survivor and helped with props and historical references on a documentary about World War I.

The FBI named him to its 10 most wanted list.

Frein has been charged with first-degree murder and various other offenses, including two counts of possession of weapons of mass destruction filed after police discovered the pipe bombs.

Earlier this month, Pennsylvania State Police revealed information from a journal found in the woods in which Frein allegedly described shooting the state troopers. They also detailed campsites where Frein was believed to have hidden, cooking over small fires even as heavily armed police hunted him. Police found pipe bomb booby traps and a gun resting against a tree, but had only had a handful of unconfirmed sightings of Frein.

"Got a shot around 11 p.m. and took it," Frein wrote on papers found by police. "He [Dickson] dropped. I was surprised at how quick."

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson is reportedly expected to be “eased out” of the department.

A source tells MSNBC that Wilson – who fatally shot Michael Brown that touched off months of protests – will be “eased out” of the Ferguson Police Department and might resign. The report also stated Chief Thomas Jackson would resign, but the department said that is not true.

“Ferguson Chief says he has not resigned, he has not been told to resign. He has not been fired. If he leaves, it will be his choice alone,” the department posted on Twitter.

Jackson also denied the report to NBC News.

“I have not been asked to resign, I have not been fired, and I will not be resigning next week. If I do resign, it will be my choice,” Jackson said.

Fraternal Order of Police Chicago Lodge #7
Month Day, Year
Anything but Honorable!  Vote NO to Retention!!

When you vote on November 4th, you will see a Judge that must NOT be re-elected. 
You may know her as either the Honorable Anita Rivkin-Carothers, or as the "Gang Lawyer".

Anita Rivkin-Carothers defended cop-killer Murray Blue years ago, who murdered Officer Daniel Doffyn and injured Officer Milan "Mike" Bubalo.   Rivkin-Carothers said during opening statements that she intended to prove that Doffyn was accidentally shot by his partner during a frantic moment of gunfire. Rivkin-Carothers went on to say that after the shooting, investigators, including the chief administrator of the police department's Office of Professional Standards, got together and filed a false report in which they blamed Blue.

Ballistics reports showed the bullets that struck Doffyn came from Blue's Tec-9 automatic machine pistol. 

To this day, she remains openly hostile to officers who come before her.

Rivkin-Carothers is running for retention to the Cook County 7th Sub-circuit.  Please keep her in mind when you vote.  She is certainly not Honorable.
