I was born on November 29th, 1980 in the small town of Steubenville, Ohio. I can’t call my own experiences “normal,” as my parents have always been the types of true Christians who would gladly give the shirts off their backs, yet whose good-Samaritan acts often made them targets by less stable people.
I was seven-years-old when my family lived on Moore’s Lane, located just off of 213. I remember my parents befriended the new neighbors, who were going through some difficult times financially; these were the Reagan years. They moved into the tiny house right next door to our tiny house. My parents bought them groceries, and they became fast friends. However, it didn’t take long for their personal struggles with mental illness and addiction to become the quiet talk of our little town. My parents, alarmed by the abusive arguments that happened nightly, told me to never ever go into their house, but the neighbor boy could come over to our house if he wanted to play. For a while he did. We were very good friends. Then his parents told him he wasn’t allowed to talk to me anymore.
One night we awoke to the smell of smoke. Someone had set my dad’s truck on fire. Ten days later, as we were in our car headed to church, we saw smoke billowing out of the chimney. Our house was engulfed in flames. We made it out with only the clothes on our backs. The fire was found to be arson, and the fire marshal at the time “lost” the evidence, which included jugs of gasoline covered with oily fingerprints.
Filmed on `1/12/13, The town of steubenville holds a rally in support of their kids who are allegedly being threatened by anonymous....however the rally seemed to me to be more about supporting the big red football team. I was harassed immediately upon arriving despite displaying my credentials as the 20 people at the rally claimed i was anonymous. 2 women were assigned to try and block my cameras to which they failed in that task.

In 1980, Keith and seven friends started the first Food Not Bombs chapter in Cambridge, Massachusets. At first more of a street performance than a protest, the group provided entertainment and vegetarian meals in Harvard Square and the Boston Commons after making deliveries of uncooked food to most of the housing projects and shelters in the area. After eight years of serving free food in New England, Keith moved to San Francisco where he started a second Food Not Bombs group. He was one of nine volunteers arrested for sharing food and literature at Golden Gate Park on August 15, 1988. In the following years, Keith was arrested over 100 times for serving free food in city parks and spent over 500 nights in jail. He faced 25 years to life in prison under the California Three Strikes Law but in 1995, Amnesty International and the United Nations Human Rights Commission brought about his release.

As the country, and indeed, the world, mourns the tragic and unnecessary loss of so many young lives to the Newtown School Massacre, many peace activists and advocates for non-violence around the world are mourning another loss… the loss of a tireless advocate for peace and reconciliation, a blogger on this website, Mira Dabit.
I was sound asleep in my grandson’s bed when my cell phone woke me on December 15th at 12:30 a.m. Slightly annoyed, I answered the phone. It was my partner from Searching for Occupy, Denise Valdez. She was crying. No. She was sobbing. For a few moments, I listened to her crying. Then, she managed to blurt out, “Crystal, I have some bad news…” A pause. A sob. “Mira is dead.”
What? No. I must have heard that wrong. Mira, our Palestinian cohort from Occupy Washington, D.C. and Peace House, was only 27 years old. I just talked to her… what?... two weeks ago? She was excited about her newest endeavor ‘Love Music Hate Racism’. She was bubbling over in a characteristic burst of uninhibited enthusiasm…
Sadly, I did not hear it wrong. Mira, even when she phoned me, had been sick. Apparently, she had gone to the hospital a few times, but the last time she got fed up with the hours of waiting. She was Palestinian so, of course, she had to line up in the uninsured queue. She left before seeing a doctor and died a few hours later.

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.”
