August 11, 2012 was just another average night in the small town of Steubenville Ohio. The End of summer parties were in full swing as some graduates were preparing to ship off to college, and others were preparing for another year of school, and another year of Big Red Football.
All the attendees to these parties were underage , but somehow managed to arrive to party after party with Beer. Others had a stockpile of liquor. One of the parties was hosted at the home of a Steubenville volunteer football coach.
This wasn’t your typical End of summer party weekend though. It was a weekend that would forever cast Steubenville and the Big Red Football program into the eyes of the world.
“Huge Party…Banger.” High Scool football Player Trent Mays posted on His Twitter account in regards to one of the parties going on that fateful night. This would be one of the many social media postings from the big red football players detailing the events of what would soon become the plight of the town. There are countless other twitter postings from this eveneing available online, but too graphic to read on air or post for the purpose of this story.

I was a school shooter before school shooting was cool.
A friend & I joked we were school shooters before school shooting was cool, I can't help but have a fondness for the school shooter - I relate.
I've studied the criminal mind and more specifically, murderous youthful rage. I did this because I myself was a pretty hate filled young-man.
The perversion of the human animal takes many forms… the killer who kills for no other reason but to kill is just one of them.
The serial killer has adult tastes, usually a fetish, a repressed sexuality or guilt. The school shooter is pure, they are honest and haven't grown into having an adult fetish to act out against, because of this, the study of the school shooter can bring the root issues to the surface.
I had been working on a book about this very subject, but lost most of the notes is an unfortunate incident similar to a fire… Anyway, here are some of my thoughts on the matter, some from an old notebook that survived the fire, some from memory….

New York, December 2, 2012--Following the closure of its two distribution hubs in Brooklyn, Occupy Sandy now has several distribution centers for donated supplies for storm victims in the Rockaways, Coney Island and Staten Island. The shepherd's pies prepared yesterday by Occupy volunteers in the Integral Yoga Kitchen in the West Village (see previous film on this channel) were brought out to the Rockaways recovery site at St Gertrude the Great's Roman Catholic church on 36th street and Beach Channel Drive; which was operated by volunteers from 1pm to 4pm on Sunday. Inside the vast church hall, neighborhood residents were able to pick up donated supplies such as brand new sleeping bags, canned goods, batteries, toilet articles, clothing, children's sneakers and other survival necessities. Two lawyers were also on hand to provide legal services. for landlord tenant issues, benefit claims and other storm=related problems. At the same time, an American Red Cross disaster relief van parked in front of the church distributed hot grilled chicken sandwiches.VIDEO: includes location footage driving through the Rockaways, the St Gertrude's recovery site in operation, interviews with several Occupy Sandy volunteers and one American Red Cross member; and a moving handwritten account by a mute volunteer about the special predicament in which undocumented immigrants find themselves post-storm. Filmed by Liza Béar.
Catching Fire tells a compelling story of how a small but committed group of local, tribal, state and federal land managers are bringing back the use of prescribed fire as a tool to protect communities and ecosystems across Northern California. It examines the use of fire by the Karuk Tribe of California, and the connection between the rise of megafires across the West and the last century of fire suppression. Drawing on interviews with fire scientists, tribal and federal land managers, and fire savvy residents from across the North State, this film provides insight on how our relationship to fire can be restored through strategic use of fire as a powerful management tool.

By John Konopak.CJE – What was the first US city to undergo an attack from the air?
No, not NYC, 2001. And it wasn’t Honolulu, 1941, either.
No, it occurred during what was probably the worst, bloodiest, deadliest and most destructive “race” riot in American history occurred in 1921: in the “Black” neighborhood of Tulsa, Oklahoma, called Greenwood. The Governor of Oklahoma ordered military aircraft to attack the Greenwood district of Tulsa with incendiary bombs and sniper fire on Sunday, June 1, 1921, to suppress a “Negro Rebellion.”
In the days leading up to Hurricane Sandy I watched along with countless others as the Media frenzied Halloween coinciding "Frankenstorm" Sandy appeared to make a beeline for New York and New Jersey. Sandy brought with it an ecological wake up, with a swirling natural example of a Fibonacci sequence contained in an immense storm and delivered to the doorstep of Wall Street in New York. Sandy had more “wake-up” painted on it than the equally sad storm of Honey Boo Boo foisted on the American public during prime time people programing hours. Sandy headed quite literally for ground zero of the Wall Street/Governmental poster child for disparity replete throughout our present system and the heart of Americas Occupy movement. The sweeping northern arm of the storm was in a placement for optimal damage around New York and New Jersey. The BBC had aired the scenario in a 2009 Episode of Hot Planet and it had painted this exact scenario as a probability of Global Warming due to slight temperature rises in the Atlantic. Hot Planet could not have been more uncanny in its prediction or theory. Add to this, the screaming silence of omission in the presidential debates about the environment and global warming. Now a "monster storm" was headed dead on and like it or not debate stopped upon the fact that this was to be massive! Indeed it was massive. Its' wake is equally so on many levels. The storm hit, emergency services scrambled, store shelves vacated, generators flew from the Home Depots stores in my area as if beamed up by Scotty on the Starship Enterprise prior to an ion storm that would deplete the dilithium crystals and render warp drive inoperable. The cacophony of preparation soon met the cacophony of real-time emergency action. It stretched many services to the breaking point as well as many lives. The onslaught of the activity is almost impossible to outline in coherent form, but chaos is a word now familiar to those who bore the brunt of it. The after effects equally so in scale and ramification. In its wake Sandy left emergency response further politicized by Mayor Bloomberg's reluctance to cancel the mass of supplies headed to 40,000 marathon runners while another 40,000 were literally and figuratively left in the dark. Bloomberg is reported to have finally conceded to pleas and threats from senior staff and even the New York Marathon organizers themselves. Mayor Bloombergs marathon priority in the face of so many suffering was demonstrative Hail Mary bonehead play if there ever was one. Clearly it showed the disconnect that exists in the disparity of real lives and the uppity out of touch privileged rich and galactically misinformed and/or uncaring. After affects met with slow or no response by FEMA bureaucracy, along with other large Aid agencies, some neighborhoods completely leveled by fire, a total disaster for great swaths and a near miss for others around New York. Yes, disaster all around was an understatement. continued below---
Occupy Sandy Relief - My House is Your House is Our House
Alan Blueford, an 18-year-old African American student from Skyline High School, was shot and killed by Oakland Police Officer Miguel Masso on May 6, 2012. The Blueford family and JAB coalition strongly condemn the DA's report and reject all attempts to cover up their son's murder. We demand Masso be fired and prosecuted, and all racial profiling practices, including stop and frisk, be stopped immediately!
Alan's mother, Jeralynn Blueford, "This is a march in honor of my son and others that has suffered police brutality. We are for change not violence and vandalism."

New York, November 2nd 2012--On Avenue C and Tenth Street in Loisaida, the power has just returned after four days of power outage following superstorm Sandy, which made landfall on the New Jersey shore on October 29. Compounded by a full moon and colliding with a low pressure system from the mid west, the storm sent a 14.5 foot surge up both the Hudson and East Rivers. According to Jerry the Pedler, featured in this video, immediately after the flood and power outage caused by the surge, resourceful squatters took their barbecue grills off the roof and emptied their refrigrerators of meat and other foodstuffs that might spoil and set up an open kitchen on the sidewalk. Other neighbors contributed and the ad hoc operation fed about 200 people everyday for four days. On Friday, the FEMA trucks finally showed up on Tenth Street between Ave C and D. However, in recognition of the local community effort, they passed on boxes of A Pack Emergency Rations, bottled water and soda to the street kitchen. Contributing the festivities on Friday evening were the Rude Mechanical Orchestra and two fire dancers.
This the 11/2/12 video footage from the Portland Oregon action at noon: "Jobs With Justice Conducts Pre-November 3rd Direct Action Against the Portland Business Alliance to Highlight Links to Austerity.
Austerity is a systematic policy to balance the budget off the backs of the working class by cutting public services, privatizing resources, and burdening people with enormous private debt. Due to astronomical amounts of military spending, obscene tax cuts for the richest Americans, and a market crash caused by the fraud and casino behavior of Wall Street, our country is in massive debt at the national, state, and municipal levels. In Portland, this means school budget cuts and closures, library cuts, crumbling infrastructure, increased student debt, foreclosures, a race to the bottom in labor standards, and a lack of power or voice for our communities in decis ion making.
