Navy SEAL who executed Bin Laden Tells Rioters: ‘I can’t believe I fought you to defend you’

Navy SEAL who executed Bin Laden Tells Rioters: 'I can't believe I fought you to defend you'

Driven activists that are rioting and spreading violence and devastation across the country do not deserve to live in a heroic land that sacrifices their life for all Americans’ health and security, said Robert O’Neill, the Navy Seal that killed Osama bin Laden, the world’s most dangerous jihadist.

For the radical rioters, terrorists and looters O’Neill had eight terms dismantling America for the sake of combating racism:

“I can’t believe I’ve been struggling to protect you.”

One. One. Realistic. Realistic. I can’t imagine that I’ve been struggling to protect you.

— Robert J. O’Neill, May 30th, 2020 (@mchooyah).

This was on 30 May as the protests in democrat-controlled cities started to grow. That was also when “mostly quiet” euphemism started to enter the mass media narrative.

O’Neill always noted that.

Such “peaceful” protesters are definitely abusive.

— Robert J.O’Neill, 30 May 2020 (@mchooyah)

WesternJournal report: it is obvious from O’Neill that police brutality and bigotry are both evil. Every opportunity we had to think to them, though, was ruined by rioting and plundering.

“I hate bigotry, I condemn the violence of the police, and it kills me, national criminals on both sides,” he wrote.

I disregard racism, I disdain police brutality and it kills me that terrorists, politically funded, do so on both sides.

— Robert J.O’Neill, 30 May 2020 (@mchooyah)

Yeah, you ‘re trying to say, but it was May 30 — America was swept up in rage paroxysms. That weren’t going to be a motive all summer long, right? It may be the year of our dissatisfaction, but the movement will change. Violence and destruction would not be as much.

Yes, we still have to deal with it. Chicago, which already had its fair share of violence and robberies, flared up again. But this time there was not even a worthwhile cause to spoil with violence.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, police fire on the 20-year-old Latrell Allen triggered unrest. The problem is that Allen shot them first according to the police (and apparently surveillance cameras, which captured the disturbances on video).

After a 911 caller, the police responded that Allen clashed in a nearby park and declined to leave.

The Assistant State Prosecutor James Murphy said Tuesday, “We should think about another dead child shot in our town, thanking the officers who replied.

This summer, Chicago has seen several children killed, including six during a week in June.

The family of Allen claimed he didn’t have a knife, and insisted police weren’t wearing body cameras. Police cams managed, however, to catch the relevant part of the pursuit.

“He was willing to shoot armed law enforcement several times, as they were chasing him; he certainly poses a danger and wouldn’t think twice that he would shoot a park or anyone else,” Murphy said., “he said.

And, what happened? What happened?

According to Chicago Tribune, “Tempers were flashing, driven up by misinformation,” said police Superintendent David Brown, citing rumors that a “unarmed youth” was shot.

Allen is now in custody on a $1 million bond. But correct information was not almost enough for demonstrators, as they decided to riot in Near North Side neighborhood in the city.

Leaders of Black Lives Matter Chicago organized a demonstration in unity with those who have been targeted by anarchy.

“I don’t care if someone decides to loot a Gucci or Macy or Nike, as this ensures that this person is eating. That ensures that this person has clothes “said WMAQ-TV organizer Black Lives Matter, Ariel Atkins.

“That’s maintenance. Take anything they want, because these companies have insurance.

Yeah, and this policy is rising so rates are rising and less people are consuming instead.

But why should I think too hard? Atkins did not. Atkins did not.

This is not the situation for which O’Neill risked his life. He represented a world where those people are trying to kill it claim to be regarded as heroes coping with past errors.

It doesn’t say that he believes, retroactively, that he didn’t fight with the men, it sounds like that. He can’t believe these looters are the people whose heroism has remained safe.

5A football: Douglas County blanks Castle View for first “Battle of the Rock” win since 2014

5A football: Douglas County blanks Castle View for first “Battle of the Rock” win since 2014

CASTLE ROCK — The drought is finally over for Douglas County football.

For the first time in seven years, the Huskies defeated crosstown rival Castle View, 16-0, on Friday night in their annual “Battle of the Rock” rivalry game with citywide bragging rights on the line.

Douglas County senior quarterback A.J. Jackson completed two touchdown passes to junior wide receiver Chase Nelson while the Huskies’ defense forced multiple turnovers. Douglas County remains unbeaten (4-0) as a surprise Class 5A contender this season.

“I’m still letting it sink in right now. I’m trying to warm up because I’m frozen with the ice bath that I just got,” Douglas County coach Eric Rice said. “The thing about winning a game like this that is so important is because they’ve beaten us so many years in a row. I know it means so much to this whole community.”

Roughly 3,500 people filed into a sold-out Douglas County Stadium on Friday with the crowd visibly split down the middle between fans in purple and red. Both teams entered undefeated. But the Sabercats were riding high with six consecutive rivalry wins in the series.

The Huskies didn’t need reminding of that losing trend. They were intent on changing it.

Douglas County sprinted out to a 16-0 advantage in the first half with big-play offense and opportunistic defense.

Hundreds protest in front of the State House over vaccine, mask mandates

Hundreds protest in front of the State House over vaccine, mask mandates

Hundreds of protestors gathered in front of the State House Friday afternoon, armed with signs, American and “Thin Blue Line” flags and petitions, to protest causes including COVID-19 vaccine and masking mandates.

“I am a health care worker, and I’m losing my job in physical therapy, even though I worked through the whole pandemic,” said Mary Taylor, an attendee from New Bedford, citing both religious and medical exemptions to the mandate. “I am going to fight this tooth-and-nail along with all my other friends that are pro-choice.”

The event was organized over Facebook by an organization called The Freedom Family Endeavor which, according to its website, is a non-profit that advocates for “the civil rights of families across the U.S.,” and especially against government restrictions.

The crowd sang the “Star-Spangled Banner” several times, and yelled chants including “We will not comply!” Attendees included several members of the Massachusetts Correction Officers Federated Union, student representatives from libertarian-leaning college groups, and a slew of health care workers nervous about losing their jobs over refusing the COVID-19 vaccine.

Another woman who attended the rally with her children who only wanted to be identified as Erica said she was there to protest because her daughter, who attends a state university, was “forced” to be vaccinated to attend, she said. The Athol resident added that she was also opposed to mask mandates for school-aged children.

Ryan McLane, the chief attorney for The Freedom Family Endeavor, said he had helped “hundreds” of people fight for religious exemptions to vaccine mandates, and added that he is currently appealing a verdict from a federal lawsuit in which a UMass Boston student was denied a religious exemption from the school’s vaccine mandate. The group’s other federal lawsuit was denied.

Gov. Charlie Baker did not respond to a request for comment on the rally.

The Herald has reached out to the Massachusetts Correction Officers Federated Union for comment, but the union has publicly slammed the vaccine mandate for their group, along with all state executive branch employees, in the past.

Lynx dominate Fever, secure first-round playoff bye

Lynx dominate Fever, secure first-round playoff bye

The Lynx dominated the Fever, 92-73, in Indianapolis on Friday night to secure a first-round bye in the playoffs.

“There just was no quit. They played as hard as they could,” Lynx head coach Cheryl Reeve said. “Everything we got we had to really earn. Coming here and getting this win was obviously something that was important to us. So, mission accomplished.”

Despite battling injuries all year, the Lynx secured a top-4 seed in the playoffs — and the first-round bye that goes with it — with the win.

“That’s what we came here to do,” Reeve said. “We wanted to make sure that we could control our own destiny. We were the first of the games tonight that had implications on seeding.”

Because the Las Vegas Aces beat the Chicago Sky on Friday night, the Lynx can no longer reach the second seed. But the current fourth seed Seattle trails Minnesota by one game in the standings with two games left this season, one of them being late Friday night.

Sylvia Fowles led the Lynx with a double-double (21 points and 10 rebounds). Napheesa Collier and Crystal Dangerfield scored 17 and 15, respectively. Natalie Achonwa added 11 points off the bench.

“[I’m] extremely proud of these young women,” Fowles said. “I’m happy with where we are. I feel like we still have a few things that we can clean up. To now see what we’ve come from to where we are now, I’m very excited and I’m very proud of [the] things we’ve done this season.”

The Fever came out strong in the first quarter, taking a 5-1 lead, but it would be their largest and last lead of the game.

In the middle of the first quarter, the Lynx started to find their footing and begin to build momentum. They went on a 15-2 scoring run to take a 22-9 lead. Kayla McBride started the scoring run with a 19-foot pull up jump shot.

However, the Fever quickly responded with a 12-5 scoring run of their own and cut the Lynx’s lead to 27-21 to close out the first quarter. They pulled within 40-38 with a 6-0 run late in the second quarter but the Lynx fought back to extend their lead to 51-44 at intermission.

Indiana only scored 10 points in the third quarter and the Lynx led by 25 points, their largest lead, on a Rachel Banham 3-pointer with 6:37 left in the game.

The Lynx are now 16-3 when scoring more than 80 points in a game, 13-1 when leading after three quarters, and 3-0 this season when their starting lineup consists of McBride, Fowles, Napheesa Collier, Crystal Dangerfield and Aerial Powers.

The Lynx will close out the regular season on the road as they take on the Washington Mystics (12-19) on Sunday, Sept. 19, 2 p.m.

Gov. Hochul signs parole reform bill into law amid Rikers crisis

Gov. Hochul signs parole reform bill into law amid Rikers crisis

NEW YORK — Amid calls for action over the crisis at New York City’s Rikers Island, Gov. Kathy Hochul on Friday signed into law the Less Is More Act in a major overhaul of New York’s parole system.

The legislation, which will take full effect in March 2022, will prevent people from being reincarcerated for technical, non-criminal parole violations.

These violations include missing a curfew, arriving late to an appointment with a parole officer, changing a residence without approval and failing to attend a mandated program.

It will also allow for shortened parole sentences due to good behavior, and expedite the time frame in which parole hearings can be held.

Hochul said that 191 inmates would be released from Rikers on Friday who meet the threshold of the new legislation.

Watch Friday’s event and bill signing in full below:

Most of the city’s jail inmates are being held for trial or on parole violations.

According to the Vera Institute of Justice, 274 people in New York City prisons are being detained for a technical parole violation, out of 6,079 inmates.

Supporters say incarcerating people for technical parole violations is costly and fuels recidivism. 

The Republican minority in the Legislature has accused Democrats of focusing more on perpetrators of crimes than victims.

Hochul’s action comes as a spotlight has once again been put on the city’s notorious jail complex, which has spiraled into turmoil during the pandemic.

It’s not just inmates and advocates saying that. City officials, including the mayor, admit there are serious problems.

The growing crisis, brought to light in recent weeks by advocates, news reports and a federal monitor who wrote of “grave concerns” with the city’s jails, has sent officials scrambling for remedies amid plans to close Rikers by 2026.

Mayor Bill de Blasio this week unveiled reforms that include requiring absent guards to get a doctor’s note if they’re out for more than a day, speeding inmate intake procedures and fixing infrastructure problems like broken cell doors.

On Wednesday, the city started suspending jail guards for 30 days without pay if they refused to come to work. Last week, the city said the staffing situation was so dire it was enlisting a telemarketing company to entice recently retired correctional officers to return to work.

Advocates, lawmakers and even the union for jail guards say the measures aren’t enough to fix a system where 10 inmates have died this year, at least five in suspected suicides.

Advocates want inmates released immediately. Some say Rikers should be closed right away.

Lawmakers who toured Rikers complex this week said it’s filthy and inhumane, with overflowing toilets and floors covered in dead cockroaches, feces and rotting food. State Assemblywoman Jessica González-Rojas said inmates told her they felt like they were being treated like slaves and animals.

The union, meanwhile, has said that hiring more guards is the answer and that suspensions will leave remaining officers working “triple and quadruple shifts with no meals and no rest.”

“The mayor cannot discipline his way out of this staffing crisis that he caused by refusing to hire a single correction officer for nearly three years, even as the inmate population doubled,” said Benny Boscio Jr., the president of the Correction Officers Benevolent Association.

In actuality, the city’s jail population has risen by about 58%, topping 6,000 inmates at the end of last week after falling below 3,900 inmates as bail reforms took effect, arrests slowed and some inmates were sent home early in the pandemic.

In addition, city jail Commissioner Vincent Schiraldi said Monday that the city has authorized the hiring of at least 200 correctional officers.

Schiraldi thanked Hochul after she signed Friday’s legislation.

“Eliminating non-criminal, technical parole violations is the decent, humane thing to do and it will only increase public safety by disrupting the incarceration cycle at a critical point, when people are reintegrating into the community,” Schiraldi said.

Kim Janey thanks supporters, does not endorse either finalist for mayor

Kim Janey thanks supporters, does not endorse either finalist for mayor

Acting Mayor Kim Janey made her first campaign appearance following a fourth-place finish of five major candidates in the mayoral preliminary, and after skipping her own election-night party.

“I don’t want people to walk away without hope,” she said Friday afternoon, addressing a packed room of purple-clad supporters at her Centre Street headquarters. “This is a great day. This is a joyous day. We will continue to be intentional about creating space for joy.”

Janey made her “Joy Agenda” central to both her campaign and her speech Friday. She previously told the Herald that this agenda, which included moves like waiving late fees at the city’s libraries and funding public events, “comes out of a tradition (of) being a Black woman — being the granddaughter of a Black preacher.”

At least a couple of supporters wiped tears from their eyes as Janey spoke, thanking her family, her pastor and her staff for their hard work.

Janey’s only child, her daughter Kimesha Janey whom she had when she was a teen, admitted that she didn’t even want her mother to run for office in the first place.

“I didn’t want her to run — it was selfish of me,” she said, explaining that she knew her mother “was going to be the one that everybody was going to attack, and I didn’t want that for my mom. But she wanted to put the city on her back.”

Kim Janey thanked her daughter for getting her politically involved, explaining that she inspired her to become a community organizer and to advocate for education and family issues.

“I’m not supposed to be here,” she said of her rise to the top job in Boston from being a teen parent who grew up in the projects. Referencing the “seeds” she planted in her term so far as mayor, she reminded the audience that “it’s up to us to make sure we see that harvest, this work is not done,” she said. “I want people to leave here encouraged. I want people to leave here committed to doing the work moving forward.”

Janey has not yet endorsed a candidate for mayor out of the two finalists, Michelle Wu and Annissa Essaibi-George, and has said she is not sure if she will make an endorsement at all. All she said about her former competitors is that she “(takes) comfort in knowing that there will be a woman leading our city.”

Along with Janey’s votes from Tuesday’s primary, votes from Andrea Campbell and John Barros, the three Black candidates in the race, are up for grabs.

Among chatter in the crowd, at least two supporters were overheard saying they’d support Wu, but one supporter said he’d vote for Essaibi-George.

“I don’t know who’s listening in Boston — I’m a Republican, not very popular here,” said Javier Lopez, 24, who attended Janey’s gathering. He said he supported Janey for her religious grounding and her stance against vaccine passports like New York has. “And I know this city, my views aren’t very popular in the city. But again, she shared some of those views,” he added,

Finally, he said, he’s disappointed Janey won’t be the first elected Black and female mayor of Boston. “She would have been an inspiration to young girls everywhere.”

High school football: St. Thomas Academy runs past Cretin-Derham Hall

High school football: St. Thomas Academy runs past Cretin-Derham Hall

The first battle in 17 years between two longtime rival East Metro powers went the way of St. Thomas Academy.

It was all Cadets all night at TCO Performance Center in Eagan, as St. Thomas Academy topped Cretin-Derham Hall 41-14 in the first meeting between the two schools since 2004.

The rivalry, which dates even further back than the two schools’ time together in the St. Paul City Conference in the late 1970s and early 1980s, renewed this season as the Raiders moved down from Class 6A to Class 5A.

The matchup drew thousands of patrons to the Vikings’ practice facility, including the likes of Cretin-Derham Hall and Minnesota Viking alums Matt Birk and Michael Floyd.

St. Thomas Academy coach Dan O’Brien said both schools had alumni functions before the big showdown. Raiders coach Chuck Miesbauer noted what helps make the rivalry special is that the kids get to know one another growing up, and on Friday, they got to meet up once again on the gridiron.

“It’s fun. It was great. Our kids were excited about it all week. Both teams had great crowds,” O’Brien said. “To be able to play in this venue, the tailgating, I think it was great for both communities, not just the player. But I think the experience for the fans, the alumni. … It was great to have a rivalry back.”

The Cadets have been one of Class 5A’s elites for years, and a consistent state title contender under the watchful eye of O’Brien. Nothing from Friday’s contest suggests that will be any different this season.

Cretin-Derham Hall (0-3) looked to get on the board on its first drive of the game, but it turned the ball over on downs inside the Cadets’ 10-yard line. That seemed to set the tone for the night. After that, the Raiders struggled to muster much offensively until the final frame.

St. Thomas Academy (3-0), meanwhile, scored early and often. Sophomore running back Savion Lopez ran in a 44-yard touchdown late in the first quarter to make it 7-0. St. Thomas Academy then recovered the ensuing onside kick and scored another touchdown — a 9-yard rush from Love Adebayo.

“We come out and we score right away. We get a stop. We get a play on special teams, any number of things could’ve created a more favorable opening to the game,” Raiders coach Chuck Miesbauer said. “When that stuff happens, you never know what can happen. But we didn’t make some of the plays and maybe we didn’t have some of the right calls on. … We didn’t make big plays across the board, and they did.”

A 52-yard rushing touchdown from Grady O’Neill made it 21-0 Cadets later in the second. Adebayo tallied another rushing touchdown — the second of three rushing scores for him on the night — in the third quarter, and O’Neill scored again — this time, a 7-yard scoring strike from Maximus Sims — early in the fourth to extend the Cadets’ lead to 34-0 — its largest advantage of the game.

O’Neill, who took snaps at quarterback and receiver, also played defensively for the Cadets as part of a package to help contain Cretin-Derham Hall star Tre Holloman, who started at quarterback for the first time this season.

O’Brien said the Cadets’ offensive line — a unit O’Neill called “ridiculous” — “had a nice night.” St. Thomas Academy ran 38 times for 292 yards Friday. O’Neill had 118 yards on the ground, while Lopez had 91 and Adebayo had 61.

“Our offensive line got rolling,” O’Neill said. “Then obviously we’ve got our two running backs that are really good players. That set it up to get me the ball, get other guys the ball and get the offense going.”

The Raiders’ offense got things going in the fourth quarter, thanks to a pair of touchdowns from quarterback Luke Floysand, who came on in relief in the final frame to run for a score and pass for another. Cretin-Derham Hall running back Will Haider tallied 108 yards of total offense.

Cretin-Derham Hall is winless through three weeks but has endured a brutal early-season schedule. The Raiders’ three losses have come to three teams ranked in the top six in the state in Class 5A, and they played Mahtomedi and Spring Lake Park tough.

“We’ve got to stay at it. It’s been a heck of a three-game stretch for us, and man, tooth-and-nail in the first two, and I wish I could say the same about tonight,” Miesbauer said. “All we can do is come back. We can learn from this and see what the next team has in store and try to right the ship. This is a good football team. I believe that to my core. Not reflected tonight. I think reflected in the previous two games. We’ve got five to go, and there’s no reason we can’t play off some of that momentum … and get everything rocking and rolling into the section time.”

Where: TIAA Bank Field, Jacksonville, Fla.

Radio/TV: 850 AM, 94.1 FM/KDVR-31.

Broncos-Jaguars series: Broncos are 5-6 in 11 games; Jaguars won 26-24 in last meeting, Sept. 29, 2019, in Denver.


Key matchup

CB Pat Surtain II versus WR DJ Chark

Making his first NFL start in place of the injured Ronald Darby, Broncos cornerback Pat Surtain II will be tasked with covering a Pro Bowl wideout who already turned in a big game in Week 1.

Surtain figures to be on Jacksonville’s D.J. Chark for much of the day, a matchup that will decide how well and how quickly rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence can settle in against the Denver secondary. Safety and team captain Justin Simmons is confident the rookie will come through.

“(Surtain) has proven that he can play at the highest level with the best of them his whole football career,” Simmons said. “He’s got guys like Kareem (Jackson) and me to be able to kind of direct traffic and make sure he’s comfortable. Communication is going to be the biggest thing that keeps him at ease… We’ve got to be able to make sure that we’re doing all that we can to help him.”

Chark had three catches for 86 yards and a touchdown last week, while Surtain played only 16 defensive snaps in the win against the Giants, and was burned for a touchdown by wideout Sterling Shepard.

Surtain said Shepard’s 37-yard catch-and-run TD in the second quarter last Sunday, which gave New York its only lead of the game, was a learning moment.

“I should’ve known that route was coming based on his stem,” Surtain said. “I could’ve squeezed it and initiated (the contact) earlier and just had tighter coverage on it.”

Coach Vic Fangio is confident Surtain will play that necessary tight coverage on the outside against Chark, who dominated in 2019 with a 1,000-yard receiving season before injuries limited him to 13 games and 706 yards last year.

“(Surtain) did good (against the Giants),” Fangio said. “There weren’t a ton of plays, but I was pleased with his play overall.”


Who has the edge?

Quarterback

Teddy Bridgewater was sharp in his Denver debut, throwing for 264 yards, two TDs and no picks in a win over the Giants. Meanwhile, Trevor Lawrence threw three interceptions in his dud of an NFL debut, a loss to Houston. Edge: Broncos

Running back

Both teams have a capable one-two punch, with Melvin Gordon/Javonte Williams highlighting Denver’s backfield opposite the combo of Carlos Hyde/James Robinson for Jacksonville. But Denver has more skill at the position. Edge: Broncos

Receiver/tight end

The Broncos are without No. 1 WR Jerry Jeudy, who suffered a high ankle sprain last week. But KJ Hamler, Tim Patrick and Courtland Sutton can pick up the slack. The Jaguars feature DJ Chark and ex-CU star Laviska Shenault Jr. Edge: Broncos
