This is footage from the car chase that began in Phoenix today, and ended with the suspect shooting himself in the head on live television. Although there aren’t many details at this point, it has been said that he was being chased because he had stolen a vehicle. Please be warned, this is a guy shooting himself in the head, and that’s what you will see…
Earlier this morning, during the midnight premier of ‘Dark Knight Rises’ in Aurora, CO, a masked gunman was responsible for the death of 12 people and bringing injury to around 50. Law enforcement has confirmed the identity of the suspect as 24-year-old James Holmes and are currently searching his apartment , which they fear could have explosives, for more evidence as to why he did this.
Local reporter Justin Jones said the gunman was wearing body armour and a gas mask.
“The attacker shot a baby at point blank range,” he said.
During the opening credits, Dates saw someone in the front row answer a phone call and walk to the emergency door in the front of the theater, he said.
Less than an hour later a man, dressed in black and wearing a gas mask and what looked like body armor, marched into the theater through the same emergency exit. He lobbed two canisters and almost instantly the theater filled with smoke.
Dates and Seeger, like everyone else in the theater, thought the man and the smoke were all part of the show, they said. Right as their eyes began to tear up from the smoke, the man fired a shot at the ceiling.
The gunman moved through
the crowd and stopped in front of Seeger.
He pointed a long rifle at her face and said nothing.
He shot at the person sitting behind her, Seeger said.
“I have no idea why he didn’t shoot me,” Seeger said.
The two dove to the ground. They could feel hot shell casings hitting their legs as the tried to crawl through the dark theater now filled with smoke. Seeger’s forehead has a burned from one of the casings.
Her friends urged each other and the people around them to stay quiet, desperate not to draw the attention of the gunman who was working his way up the isle.
As she huddled on the ground, Seeger could see bodies of women and children lying around her.

to help a man bleeding next to her. She worked to find a pulse, but was forced to leave him behind as they tried to flee the theater.
People tried to exit through the main entrance of the theater, Seeger said. By then the gunman had worked his way to the back of the theater, shooting at people as they tried to run.
Seeger estimates she was trapped in the theater for 10 to 15 minutes. When she finally reached the lobby, she saw a police officer cocking a shot gun.

[UPDATE] Killer Has Been Identified, As Well As Possible Motive: Shooting At Oakland, CA Christian Univeristy
UPDATE: April 3rd, 2012 @ 12:00 PM – The shooter is being identified (allegedly) as 43-year-old, One L. Goh. According to some, he was often made fun of for his poor English speaking skills. As far as the authorites believe, Goh was looking for a former female administrator that had expelled him from Oikos University, earlier in the year. After realizing that she wasn’t there he went into an acupuncture room and told the students to “Get in line and I’m going to kill you all.” Although he has surrendered and been cooperative, he seems to be lacking remorse. It is believed that the death of his mother, brother and being expelled along with debt piling up, is the possible motive.
UPDATE: April 2nd, 2012 at 4:05 PM – 7 people are being confirmed dead after the shooting that took place this morning. The suspect has also been identified as a man in his 40′s and has been taken into custody by police. Along with the seven fatally shot, 3 other people were wounded as well. Pastor Jong Kim, the University’s founder, did verify that the suspect was enrolled at the school as a nursing student, but was no longer enrolled.
Although it hasn’t been verified yet, it is assumed that at least five people are dead after a man opened fire at Oikos University, a Christian school in Oakland, California at 10:30 this morning. Police are not letting people know how many are dead and/or wounded, but from the aerial shots, 5 bodies can be seen with sheets covering them.
Police described the suspect as an Asian male, 5-foot-9, wearing tan pants, according ABC station KGO-TV in San Francisco.

Before anyone says anything about me prejudging gingers, I’d like to remind you that I, myself, am a ginger. Sadly, its little shits like this who choose to go out and be disgusting and particularly evil, that give all of us a bad name. I mean, it is true, we are a little more hard-headed, stubborn, cruel, mischievous and unrelenting, but trying to sexually assault your mother?! What the f*ck is that shit?! With no further a due, the story:
There are numerous things wrong with this story, starting with the fact that Noah Crooks was only 13-years-old. What kind of eighth grader has that gall to not only attempt to molest his OWN mother, but then murder her as well? Gretchen Crooks was killed in the town of Osage, Iowa and could have never predicted this would be how her life came to an end.
The hunting rifle was used to take out something other than game in this household, despite the facts that there were no criminal records of the Crooks family. And who would have seen this coming? I kid at Osage Middle School attempting sexual abuse and following through with murder… against his mother. It’s unfathomable to me, and I can’t even begin to imagine the amount of people who have been crushed by this.
Shelia Aukes, a licensed social worker in Des Moines who works with young people on a variety of mental health issues told the DesMoines Register: ‘The victims in most sex offenses committed by juveniles are siblings, other juveniles or, more rare, other adults.
‘A child or adolescent sexually abusing a parent is completely out of the norm, totally unheard of.’
The incident happened on Saturday and Noah called 911 shortly afterwards. Oddly enough, he seemed emotionless and extremely calm for what had happened.
‘The emotions of the young man, from what I’ve been told, is his demeanour was very calm and kind of stoic. Almost like he was in shock also,’ Deputy Greg Beaver told KTTC.
In Iowa, you must be 14-years-old to be charged as an adult, so this sick kid is being held at North Iowa Juvenile Detention Center in Waterloo and is expected to be tried as a juvenile. They are expecting for the charges to be filed today.
Mrs. Crooks was a nurse at Mercy Medical Center-North Iowa and had aspirations of getting her masters degree. She was a hard-working mother-of-two and always bragged about her children.
On her Facebook page back in 2010, she praised her son, one of two, for his musical talents on the saxophone as well as his accomplishment in being accepted into a University of Iowa camp to learn Chinese.
‘So proud of him!’ she wrote.
She had also recently published an application on her page reading: ‘Click “like” if you love your son!’
This is the first murder in Osage since 1898! This is definitely one way to bring back murder in a murder-less city.

On February 13th, 2012, a Ukrainian tourist died after being struck with a speed boat‘s propeller, while on vacation in Sharm al-Sheikh, Egypt. The man and his friend (who filmed the incident) were staying at City Sharm Hotel, which has a 4-star rating. As the man started to come up for a breath of air, a speed boat and its propeller crashed through the man and severely cutting him. Although he was still alive after the incident, the hotel wasn’t prepared for such an incident and the Ukrainian tourist bled to death.
If you are not epileptic and feel like seeing the full 13 minutes of the incident, please see below:
Трагедия произошла в Египте 13.02.2012 г. Администрация отеля и компания Пегас никак не отреагировала на трагедию. Россияне, Украинцы да и другие братья славяне не как не защищены от хаоса этой феодальной страны. Всё это произошло практически в акватории пляжа отеля.
In English (rough translation):
The tragedy occurred in Egypt 2/13/2012, the hotel management company, and Pegasus did not react to the tragedy. Russians, Ukrainians and even other brothers Slavs are not as vulnerable to the chaos of feudal country. All this happened almost in the waters of the beach hotel.
On Saturday afternoon, Donna Chen, 53, was out walking her dog when she was suddenly struck and killed by a drunk driver. Blake C. Talman, 22, was actually fleeing another scene where he was suspected of crashing prior to this incident in which he took a woman’s life.
Talman reportedly lost control of his Nissan Altima on State Road 758 north of Glebe Lane when troopers say he struck Donna L. Chen as she was walking her dog on a sidewalk.
According to authorities, the dog was also hit, and it ran away from the scene.
Talman didn’t stop after hitting the woman and her dog and continued on through some landscaping, a street sign, and several wooden poles at the entrance of St. Michael’s Archangel Catholic Church. Then when you would think the young drunk driver might give up, he strikes another car with an 18-year-old girl who sustains minor injuries as well.
Both Talman and his passenger, a 24-year-old man, sustained serious injuries and were transported to Sarasota Memorial Hospital.
Sunday morning, the hospital reported that Talman and the passenger had been discharged.
Talman is currently booked into the Sarasota County Jail.
What’s worse is that this young idiot that caused so much destruction is an expectant father. He seemed very upset when he heard that his bail would be set at $100,000 because that would pose a problem with him trying to be involved in the process of having a new child. This man has nothing to be angry about because he killed someone, injured others and caused extreme amounts of damage to various properties. Maybe you shouldn’t be getting so wasted and driving a vehicle when you’re expecting a baby, not to say you should do so otherwise, but setting a good example and being a safe and responsible father might be a good thing to try and carry out. Luckily, you’ll have time to be sober and think about the dumb shit you’ve done to get yourself in this situation.
Meanwhile, the dog that Chen was walking was terrified by the incident and had no idea where to go for help. With his owner now dead and no one tending to her, the dog ran off and jumped into the Gulf of Mexico. After swimming about a half mile with injuries from the accident, a man who was fishing in his kayak and had a camera filming everything, managed to safely rescue the poor shocked dog. Poor thing was lost, confused, and hurt badly. Luckily, he is now okay.
UPDATE: the mystery is solved. However, it’s very sad and unfortunate:
The accident scene was about a mile from where I found Barney swimming. Our guess is that he was so freaked out and traumatized that he just wanted to get as far away from there as possible. And when he ran out of land, he took to the water. I feel lucky that I was there fishing, because there was no place for him to go and I don’t know if he could have made it much farther. He’s banged up, but fine. Our hearts go out to the family who lost their mother.
* Yes, Barney is back with his family. I imagine they need him pretty bad right now.
* I usually keep a camera running when I fish, in case I catch the big one. It does happen, occasionally (see other videos in my profile if you are interested)
* The kayak is a Hobie Adventure. It is a kayak made specifically for fishing. When turned down, the side floats allow me to stand up and fish.
* My brother got my mom some shamwows a couple years back as a gag gift. As corny as they are, they actually are pretty nice for fishing

Donna Fountain, 38, was killed on Christmas day by a hit-and-run driver and family is now mourning their loss. Fountain’s list of dreams that she was carrying in her pocket though, make it that much more real that she deserved a much longer life.
Scribbled down on a lined sheet of paper, Ms Fountain underscored ‘My Dreams’ and had composed a list of five things she hoped to accomplish in the long life she envisioned ahead.
’Work on my dream job’, reads the top line, followed by ‘Buy a house by 45′, ‘Start housing for gay and lesbian teens’, ‘Marry the woman of my dreams’, and lastly, ‘Make sure Elijah graduates from college!
The healthcare aid worker was on her way to work when she was struck by the vehicle that took her life. Friends say she always had this list of dreams folded in her pocket and made sure to keep it with her .
The grey vehicle that struck Fountain just took blocks from her and her son’s home left her there to die. Her plans to pick up her son after school and open Christmas gifts was never able to happen. The single mother was killed around 7:30am on Christmas morning, without completing her list of dreams.
