@KineticFuryIf anyone is turned in this direction there are specific appeals for the Yazidi and Iraq Christians. Personally, I can only vouch for Samaritan's Purse. At least a couple of these ministries are already in Iraq and have been long before all the MSM coverage helping the Yazidis and Christians in their flight from ISIS. Ck the creds for yourself.

Breaking News: Officer Darren Wilson’s Eye Socket is not Fractured?
22 August 2014
CNN is running a report that disputes an earlier report from Fox
News. The earlier story from Fox reported that Officer Wilson’s eye
socket had been fractured in his confrontation with Michael Brown. CNN
is disputing that story but saying that Officer Wilson’s face was
treated for “bruising.”
While we can’t be 100% sure yet what is going on with this injury…
both the CNN report and the Fox News report seem to jibe with the police
departments earliest statement on the subject.

Missouri cop was badly beaten before shooting Michael Brown, says source
Darren Wilson, the Ferguson, Mo., police officer whose fatal shooting
of Michael Brown touched off more than a week of demonstrations,
suffered severe facial injuries, including an orbital (eye socket)
fracture, and was nearly beaten unconscious by Brown moments before
firing his gun, a source close to the department's top brass told FoxNews.com.
“The Assistant (Police) Chief took him to the hospital, his face all
swollen on one side,” said the insider. “He was beaten very severely.”

@Jaycel Adkins @Txazz There is no persuasion nor rationale in this situation. Much more is in play other than the shooting at this point. There is no reason or rationale. The officer was just doing his dangerous job. The facts and witnesses prove that in the midst of this black community. That says something doesn't it.
Now, Holder comes to town to nail the officer and is bringing a federal civil rights lawsuit - just because Michael Brown was black.

Another stunning piece of news out of St. Louis is that sources in the Prosecutor’s office are willing to confirm that Officer Wilson suffered facial fractures
during his confrontation with Michael Brown. This piece of news also
seems to confirm Officer Wilson’s story that Brown hit him in the face
while trying to wrest the gun away from the officer.
Local St. Louis sources said Wilson suffered an “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket.” This comes from a source within the Prosecuting Attorney’s office and confirmed by the St. Louis County Police.
A blowout fracture is a fracture of one or more of the bones
surrounding the eye and is commonly referred to as an orbital floor

Against a knife the situation is even worse. If you rely only upon
your handgun – you just might get killed. Most people, law enforcement
included, have no idea how fast a knife wielding assailant can move. In a
blink of an eye he can be upon you. I have seen police videos of actual
stabbings and it is frightening. I have seen multiple armed police
officers getting stabbed one after another, afraid to open fire since
the assailant 'only' has a knife. Finally someone realizes that a knife
is a formidable weapon against a gun, and shoots the guy.
you have a hand gun, realize that it does not provide absolute
protection against a knife, especially as the distance decreases.

@portside Good to hear what you had to say as it makes this conversation. When Capt. Johnson stepped up I knew we had a leader and he has stepped up to the plate hasn't he. In the midst of all the confusion and now Nat'l Guard he is making it work. There was a young woman and she said, peace,it's wonderful, I love it - that was the 2nd night before things busted loose again.
The agitators called their meeting Unity but, it was far from it. They could really do some good if they only would.
@LawyerHandle Right, a friend of Wilson called in and told his side of the story (she was not in contact with him I don't think). I read today that he happened to be listening to the radio broadcast and confirmed that's the way it happened.
He pulled around the 2 guys in the middle of the street and stopped a bit ahead of them. The radio call came in right then, strong arm robbery and Brown matched the description down to holding what looked like the cigarillos in his hand.
The police chief is not on the ball at all - earlier he said, no, the officer did not know of the robbery - that wasn't true but, at that point he had no business releasing that information.
@LawyerHandle I just read an article that said white 83% now and black 11%. No idea where they pulled their figures from. I started looking as Officer Wilson's FB has 22,000 comments of support and that's how I ended up with the percentages.
My heart was heavy to read this news. I remember our earlier discussions and I would rather the issue be forgotten so the others can go on. Think of how they must feel about this.
This young Marine did tell some of his side of the story and I was glad he was able to. He looked the picture of health although he was medically discharged. Let's keep his wife and family in prayer as this must have been a terrible shock to her. God bless our military wives for their strength and fortitude.

Joseph Asarisi, 48, a naturalized citizen from Ukraine and an 11-year
employee of the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, was arrested by MCSO
deputies after an investigation that took them coast-to-coast.
Asarisi posed as a law enforcement officer and obtained hundreds of
sensitive documents from various law enforcement sites, including
Homeland Security and the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office, Maricopa
County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said.
He forwarded the information to people not in law enforcement,
including an anti-government author based in New York City, Arpaio said.
MCSO detectives traveled to Los Angeles to interview a deputy who
provided many of the intelligence reports to Asraisi. They also traveled
to New York City to interview the author who received some of the
reports, Arpaio said.
The author initially denied knowing of Asarisi or his emails but when
pressed, quickly refused to cooperate and referred detectives to his
attorney, Arpaio said.

“Caliph Al-Baghdadi On The Run And Is Severely Injured” Sources Say
By Shoebat Foundation on August 14, 2014 in
By Walid Shoebat (Shoebat Exclusive)
Several Middle Eastern media have reported the escape of the ISIS
Caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi to Syria after suffering an injury after a
raid west of Anbar by during the air strikes.
While such news still needs to be confirmed, today, the “Middle East” Thursday (August 14, 2014) reported
from the Kurdistan Democratic Party official in Nineveh Saeed
Memousine, saying that “Baghdadi” left Mosul on his way to Syria a few
days ago, accompanied by 30 military vehicle of the type “Hummer.”
Recently, the representative of the International Parliament in Iraq, Dr. Haidar al-Shara said in an interview for
“Alsumaria News”, “The Iraqi security forces carried out a qualitative
operation in the city of Qaim on the border with Syria, based on
accurate intelligence and with the help of the Air Force where it has
wounded the leader of ISIS terrorist Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi.”

August 12, 2014 see video
Islamic militant forces in northern Iraq appear to be shifting
tactics in the face of the newly launched U.S. airstrike campaign,
Defense officials say, posing a new challenge to the Obama
administration as it seeks to at least slow the terrorists’ advances.
According to officials, until now the Islamic State (IS) was behaving
like a well-organized army, moving with strategic intent and pursuing
military objectives. Now, officials are seeing at least a partial shift
to classic insurgency tactics, as militants begin to blend in among the
population, making targeting more difficult.
“One of the things that we have seen with the [IS] forces is that
where they have been in the open, they are now starting to dissipate and
to hide amongst the people,” Lt. Gen. William Mayville Jr., director
for operations with the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said. “The targeting in
this is going to become more difficult.”
The comments, on one hand, demonstrate how effective airstrikes can
be. One of the reasons the militants marched so quickly across Iraq is
that the Iraqi Air Force didn't really exist.
On the other hand, in order for the airstrikes to be effective at
this stage, U.S. ground forces would be needed to permanently push the
group formerly known as ISIS back -- something that has been ruled out
by Obama administration officials.
