A man is dead Wednesday night after attempting to rob a another man and his family at a San Antonio restaurant, police said.
San Antonio Police Department Captain Michael Starnes said a father was eating with his family when the man approached him at about 8:30 p.m. in the restaurant in the 800 block of Southeast Military Drive.
“He was threatened by the robber, who was displaying a gun,” Starnes said.
SAPD Sgt. Roy Miller said the armed man asked the father for money.
The father said he wasn’t giving the man anything and turned to get an employee’s attention, Miller said.
Starnes said that at some point the man also threatened employees, who ran out of the back of the restaurant.
The father, who had been waiting for two of his children to leave the bathroom, told police the armed man turned the gun on his family.
The father pulled out his own gun and shot the armed man, police said.
“The citizen is a licensed carrier and did use his handgun to take down the robber,” Starnes said.
It’s no secret that progressives tend to hate big business and libertarians tend to hate big government. But even progressives and libertarians can agree that the only thing worse than those two separate elements is when big business and big government come together.
“Fascism should rightly be called corporatism because it is the merger of state and corporate power,” according to Benito Mussolini. And that guy was a fascist!
But what the good people of the United States may not know is how far this collusion goes: Corporations with billions of dollars obviously lobby governments — both state and federal — for favors regarding laws, regulations and kickbacks. A popular form of these favors are subsidies, which are essentially government-sanctioned monetary grants given to a person, business or group “in support of an enterprise regarded as being in the public interest.” But the main thing to know about subsidies is that they are our tax dollars.
This means that at best, the government is trying to help invigorate the economy by injecting capital into businesses and causes it deems worthy. At worst, this means government is picking winners and losers without adequate input from the public, and often government makes the wrong choices — especially when the “winners” are corporations with plenty of money to lobby the government for said subsidies. This is what many folks refer to as “corporate welfare,” “crony capitalism” or just “crapitalism.”
“Throw’em into prison for five years” is what New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez wants for any out-of-state concealed carry permit holder who enter his state with a firearm.
“People violate our law — we are a state that has decided that we are against concealed carry weapons. We have stronger gun laws. We believe we have made the states safer as that,” Menendez told The Daily Caller Thursday. “They violate our laws, then whatever is the law, and they are found guilty of it, they should pay the consequence.”
When pressed about travelers with concealed carry permits who may be detoured into his state by accident, he replied: “They know what our state’s law is. They should know what our state law is if they want to carry a concealed weapon. I don’t think that they just simply get detoured and they should think in advance when they are traveling.”
He continued, “I find it amazing that Republicans who believe in state rights all of a sudden have a problem observing the state rights of those states that think that stronger gun laws is the way to protect citizens and that’s what I have to say about it.”
To fully capture the scope of the federal bribery case against Sen. Bob Menendez, CNN will update this list each week with new totals derived from the past week’s court proceedings.
The Democratic senator from New Jersey is accused of accepting lavish travel and hotel stays from his friend, Dr. Salomon Melgen. Through various “official acts” as a senator, prosecutors say Menendez violated federal bribery laws by advocating for the doctor in a number of ongoing disputes Melgen had with the federal government.
Total number of witnesses: 57
One witness, FBI special agent Alan Mohl, has been called three times thus far.
Number of pilots who have testified: 3
Richard Nylund, Richard Ravido and David Donovan were pilots who flew Menendez on Melgen’s private jets.
Number of FBI agents who have testified: 3
Special agent Alan Mohl, supervisory intelligence analyst Jane Ruch, and special agent Christina Cobb have all testified about the investigation.
