Would Reason writer prefer Chris Kyle were killed instead of an Iraqi? ‘If that’s the only choice, yes.’

Originally posted on Twitchy:

We’ve already read plenty of criticism of “American Sniper,” which this weekend has overtaken “Saving Private Ryan” at the box office as the No. 1 war movie of all time. Some lefty magazines, such as The New Republic, have published “reviews” of the movie written by critics who openly admit they haven’t seen it. Frequent Huffington Post contributor Ferrari Sheppard tweeted that “people like [Chris] Kyle would blow my head off for walking down a dark street,” adding, “Don’t try to include me in the American family when it’s time to kill brown people overseas.”

So, what would the libertarian Reason magazine contribute to the conversation? Well, do you remember the writer whose hot take was to compare Kyle to Adam Lanza, the madman behind the mass shooting at Sandy Hook elementary school?

French Tourists to Be Deported Over Nude Photo Shoot at Cambodian Temple

Originally posted on TIME:

A trio of tourists from France were arrested for taking nude photos of each other at a world-famous Cambodian temple, and will be deported.

The three men in their early twenties were found Thursday inside Banteay Kdei temple at Angkor Archaeological Park, AFP reports, which houses Angkor Wat — a 12th-century temple and UNESCO World Heritage site.

The trio were arrested by Cambodian authorities and given a suspended prison sentence of six months, plus deportation from Cambodia and a four-year ban on coming back to the country. The men were also fined $750 each.

“They confessed to making a mistake and asked for the Cambodian people to forgive them for their actions,” prosecutor Koeut Sovannareth told AFP. The men claimed that they took the pictures as souvenirs, “but we believe that their intention was to use the photos in publications such as a calendar,” Sovannareth said.

We recently saw the mural Apple commissioned for one of its five new Apple Stores in China, and today the mural is down revealing the glass cylinder entrance of its Chongqing store, an apparent clone of its Shanghai store design. The store opens at 10am tomorrow.

The photos were posted on Taisy and appear to have originated from MacX. The interior of the store is very reminiscent of the spiral staircase in the iconic glass cube store on Fifth Avenue in New York (photo below) …

[VIDEO] It’s Hulk vs Iron Man In New ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron‘ Teaser Trailer

Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters on May 1, 2015

The trailers for Avengers: Age of Ultron have so far given us hints of an epic, city destroying, to-hell-with-the-clean-up and insurance costs battle between the Hulk and Iron Man and a new TV spot teaser from Marvel gives us just that little bit more.

We still have no idea why Iron Man dons the Hulkbuster armor to take on his rage-filled fellow Avenger, but we do get to see more of Black Widow, Thor, Scarlet Witch, Captain America and Hawkeye and Nick Fury all look equal parts concerned, confused and a little afraid….(read more)

[VIDEO] Say What? NBC Reporter: Chris Kyle Went on Racist ‘Killing Sprees’ in Iraq

“Chris Kyle was going on killing sprees?”

– Host Joe Scarborough

Brendan Bordelon writes: As American Sniper achieves enormous box-office success, NBC reporter Ayman Mohyeldin accused Navy sniper Chris Kyle of perpetrating racially-motivated “killing sprees” during his tours of duty in Iraq.

The Egyptian-American reporter told MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Thursday that if audiences “don’t know anything about Chris Kyle — don’t know if it was a true story — this is a great movie.”

Mohyeldin attends the TIME 100 Gala, TIME's 100 most influential people in the world, at Jazz at Lincoln Center on April 29, 2014 in New York City.

European Police Face Being Outgunned By Jihadis with Assault Rifles

Originally posted on TIME:

When Chérif and Saïd Kouachi attacked the offices of Charlie Hebdo on Jan. 7, killing 12 people, they were armed with Kalashnikov assault rifles and could easily outgun the police officers who tried to apprehend them with pistols. Their associate, Amedy Coulibaly, had an even greater collection of military-grade weapons.

The size of the trio’s armory has prompted an urgent inquiry into the scale of gun smuggling in Europe, where weapons are smuggled into the European Union from the countries of former Yugoslavia, Albania and elsewhere and then moved without any further border checks to where they will get the best price. Most of the smuggling is carried out by criminal gangs but many jihadis such as Coulibaly are well connected with criminal networks.

Despite the Paris attacks, it seems the weapons are still flowing freely through Europe. Brian Donald, chief of staff for Europol, which coordinates cross-border actions…

SEATTLE — A Seattle school teacher is suing the city after being pepper-sprayed by a police officer as he walked by a police line during protests on Martin Luther King Jr. Day Jan. 19.

That’s when Jesse Hagopian says he was hit in the face with pepper spray as he was talking on the phone to his mother and walking by the police line.

“I yelled out, my mom was in distress as she heard me yell and couldn’t see me,” Hagopian said at a news conference Wednesday to announce his lawsuit against the city.

Hagopian’s lawyer, James Bible, said, “It was an irrational action, and that’s why we’re here.” He is suing the city of Seattle for $500,000 in damages. Read the rest of this entry »

Open Carry: More Common Than You Think

Unknown

Rani Molla reports:

“Concealed carry—you don’t know who’s doing it and it doesn’t cause as much concern as open carry. One is a danger you know, and one is a danger you don’t know.”

– Laura Cutilletta, senior staff attorney at the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence

Gun-rights advocates see the practice as a way to normalize gun ownership and deter crime, while gun-control activists believe carrying guns in stores and restaurants is disruptive to the public and encourages violence.

Recently, TargetStarbucks and Chipotle have asked their patrons not to bring their guns. After petitions by gun-control groups such as Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in AmericaKroger said it would uphold local and state laws in the 34 states it operates.

Carrying a firearm in a concealed manner is legal in all states, but open carry has more restrictions, especially for handguns.

Though federal law doesn’t restrict the open carrying of handguns in public, several states—including California, Florida, Illinois, New York, South Carolina and Texas—ban the practice, according to the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence. Thirteen states require a special permit or license to open carry. Read the rest of this entry »
