It is a story that we would rather not have to report but, a Sheriff’s Deputy in Minnesota was murdered with his own gun. We must consider this incident and determine if there is anything we can do to prevent it from being repeated. If you carry a gun you must listen to this show.
During the SWAT Fuel Fitness Talk Jarrad discusses the “plateau” and offers some advice as to how you can get over your personal plateaus. A negligent discharge in a Kansas movie theater gives us an opportunity for reflection and lessons to be learned. Finally, we have yet another example of how liberalism is a mental disorder.
“A deputy was shot dead at a Minnesota hospital Sunday after the suspect he was guarding grabbed his gun and opened fire.
Aitkin County Sheriff’s Investigator Steven Sandberg, 60, died during an altercation at St. Cloud Hospital in St. Cloud, Minnesota, state officials said in a statement.

The man he was guarding, 50-year-old Danny Hammond, had been receiving medical care at the hospital after a domestic dispute, CNN affiliate WCCO reported.
Around 5:15 a.m. Sunday, the suspect “gained control of Sandberg’s gun and shot him,” the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension said.
Hammond also died at the hospital after a security guard used a Taser to subdue him. Officials said the suspect “experienced a medical emergency” after he was Tasered.
Sandberg had worked for the Sheriff’s Office for 24 years, officials said. He is survived by his wife and daughter, Aitkin County Sheriff Scott Turner told reporters.
After the deadly shooting, a solemn convoy of police vehicles escorted his body to the medical examiner’s office, where investigators will conduct an autopsy, WCCO reported.
Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton expressed condolences to Sandberg’s family in a statement Sunday, calling his death a “terrible, senseless murder.”
“This tragedy reminds us that Minnesota’s law enforcement officers risk their lives every day and night to keep us safe,” he said.“
“A Salina theater was evacuated after a man apparently shot himself in the leg with his concealed handgun.
The Salina Journal reports the theater was evacuated Friday after the handgun went off in the man’s pocket, hitting him in the upper leg.
Tim Coleman says he was sitting nearby when he heard a pop, smelled gunpowder and the man said “Oh my God! I shot myself.”
Coleman, an Army mechanic now with the Kansas National Guard, says first he checked to make sure his 14-year-old daughter and her friends were safe. He says people evacuated calmly, and several people called 911.
Coleman fixed a tourniquet to stop the man’s bleeding and made sure the weapon was secured.
Police say the incident remains under investigation. The man’s condition is unclear.“
“A young, female ‘No Borders’ activist working in a migrant camp on the France-Italy border remained silent about her gang rape by Sudanese migrants for over a month because “the others asked me to keep quiet.”
Colleagues are alleged to have said that reporting the crime would set back their struggle for a borderless world.
The ‘No Borders’ activist had dedicated a month of her life to helping migrants. Her group was stationed between Italy and France in Ponte San Ludovico in Ventimiglia when the atrocity occurred, according to reports from local papers La Stampa and Il Secolo XIX, and now reported in the major Italian national Corriere Della Serra.
One Saturday night, as loud music played at a nearby party, the woman was reportedly trapped in a shower block set up near the camp in a pine forest know as Red Leap.
A gang of African migrants allegedly raped her there, and her cries for help are said to have gone unheard because of the music.
La Stampa reports that the woman, around 30 years of age, would have reported the horrific crime were if not for her fellow left-wing activists, who convinced her that if the truth got out it could damage their utopian dream of a world without borders.
But Corriere Della Serra also reports that some of her fellow activists are now accusing the woman of reporting the rape out of “spite,” because her group was withdrawn from the camp following a separate controversy.
The town of Ventimiglia, where the alleged crime occurred, has been a flashpoint in the ongoing migrant crisis.
On the 30th September around 50 migrants and 20 activists were cleared from an illegal camp there. The activists organised a protest, whereby 250 migrants conducted a “sit in” on the shoreline.
Yesterday, Osman Suliman, 20, a Sudanese asylum seeker who had been in the UK for just five months, appeared in court.“
