Warning!The rogue police state continues going haywire - from Anaheim, California to New York City where Mayor Bloomberg once stood across the police barracade from a group of us who were protesting against the police state. The mayor shook his fist in our faces and screamed, "Get the f**k out of my city!" On Friday, police shot and killed one man who had killed a former co-worker ... and 9 others in front of the Empire State Building, a favorite tourist site. I suppose we can call them victims of "collateral damage." Mayor Bloomberg exploited this "incident" by conjuring up another tiresome reference to the threat of terrorism in his fine city and he wasn't talking about the terror of his storm troopers. Our advice to travelers is to avoid visits to NYC at all cost, a city with the most elaborate and expensive "security system" money can buy. Our advice to all who have the means to do so - Get the f**k out of Mayor Bloomberg's city!

Shooting Outside Empire State Building Results in 9 Injuries, All by Police Gunfire
After a disgruntled ex-employee of an apparel company Jeffrey Johnson, 58, of Manhattan killed former co-worker, Steven Ercolino, 41, he was then later shot dead by police in an incident that began at 9 a.m. outside the Empire State Building. In all, 2 women and 7 men were injured in the ensuing shootout with police. Today, CNN reportsthat according to police commissioner, Ray Kelly in the video below, all of those wounded occurred from police bullets.
Mayor Bloomberg has come out to say that this is not an act of terrorism. However, the new narrative of "mass shooting" has already been spread across mainstream media, which certainly warrants retraction in this case following the details that this was not a random shooting of multiple people, but rather a targeted one. This does not make the event any less tragic, but should call into question how the media portrays gun violence, and subsequent calls for gun control and gun bans. It should also call into question how police are responding to crime; particularly in New York City, which has one of the largest surveillance networks in the world, known as the "ring of steel"- even working to implement supposed pre-crime technology. Rather than high-tech toys, it seems more evident that the NYPD needs gun safety 101- as one still frame from the shooting +even seems to indicate an officer firing in the wrong direction.
