(Huffington Post) A man in Bell, Florida shot and killed his daughter and six grandchildren before fatally shooting himself, the Gilchrist County Sheriff said Thursday.

The children killed were ages three months to 10 years old, the sheriff’s office said.The identities of the victims have not yet been released.

The shooter was identified asDon Charles Spirit, age 51. The sheriff said that Spirit called 911 before killing himself. The sheriff noted in a press conference that Spirit had a criminal record. According to the Orland Sentinel,Spirit pleaded guilty to a felony arms violation in 2003. His plea on the charge was exchanged for the minimum sentence of three years prison for the accidental shooting death of his son on a 2001 hunting trip. Spirit, having been convicted in 1998 for felony possession of marijuana, did not have rights to own a firearm. He wasreleased from prison in 2006, the Associate Press reports.

The latest mass shooting in America, where all the guns keep everyone so safe.

(TPM) Chunks of Wisconsin Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke’s jobs plan appear to have been plagiarized from the plans of a trio of Democratic candidates who ran in past cycles.

Buzzfeed reported on late Thursday that Burke’s “Invest for Success” economic plan is a near perfect copy of parts of the economic plans by 2009 Tennessee gubernatorial candidate Ward Cammack (D), the 2008 plan for Delaware Gov. Jack Markell (D), and 2012 Indiana Democratic gubernatorial candidate John Gregg, who ran against now-Gov. Mike Pence (R).

Burke campaign spokesman Joe Zepecki told The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel that Eric Schnurer, who the campaign said had written the plan, had been fired after the plagiarism accusations came to light.

"We terminated [Schnurer] immediately after this was brought to our attention by Buzzfeed," Zepecki told the Wisconsin newspaper over email. "No member of the Burke for Wisconsin campaign staff or the candidate had ever seen the jobs plans of the candidates named in the story."

Zepecki said also said that the lifted paragraphs were not plagiarism because Schnurer himself wrote them for the other candidates.

Doesn’t seem to be a huge deal. Basically just a lazy staffer. But you can expect this to make an appearance in an attack ad. I’d agree that “plagiarism” is too strong a word, since it’s absurd to say you’ve plagiarized yourself, but the media seems unwilling to make that distinction. I doubt Walker or the Kochs will show more restraint.

The bigger news should be (but isn’t at the moment) the fact that Scott Walker’s jobs plan has been a complete disaster. The latest jobs report out yesterday puts Wisconsin at 33rd in the nation for job growth. The national average is 2%, while Wisconsin’s limping along at 1.3%.

“Based on the ‘gold standard’ numbers released today, Wisconsin continues to lag behind on job creation under Governor Walker,” Burke’s campaign said in a statement yesterday.

Between Walker’s plan and a plan constructed from common Democratic principles, I know which one I’d pick.

(Raw Story) Police arrested a self-described “sovereign citizen” accused of shooting at police and firefighters after setting fire to a trash bin in Dallas.

Emergency crews responded to the dumpster fire about 3 p.m. Monday, when the man opened fire on officers.

Police said the gunman, who was the subject of a missing persons report filed that afternoon, threatened a babysitter who retreated into a nearby home with an 8-year-old girl.

No one was wounded by the gunfire, which struck a fire engine in the area.

Police said the man, identified as 60-year-old Douglas Leguin, called 911 to say he was part of the anti-government sovereign citizen movement.

Investigators said the man apparently set the Dumpster fire and called in the missing persons report as part of a planned ambush on officers.

A scary experience for three teenage girls began when a stranger followed them around a Southside Indianapolis gas station, police said, and culminated in a car chase on I-465 featuring flying bullets and shattered glass.

Anthony Martin, 28, Indianapolis, appears in Marion Superior Court this morning to hear charges against him for his actions the night of March 23.

Police say Martin followed the Mazda RX8 in which the three girls were riding after they fled his unwanted attention at a Speedway gas station at 5960 S. East St.

Just another Second Amendment Hero, taking on the tyrants.

(Huffington Post) The writer of a much-maligned New York Times article about Michael Brown admitted on Monday that he had made a mistake when he described the slain teenager as “no angel.”

Those two words that John Eligon chose, along with a series of of descriptions about Brown’s “dabbling” with drugs, alcohol and rap music, set off a scorching round of criticism for the way the paper had characterized Brown. The Times dug an even deeper hole for itself by writing a concurrent article about Darren Wilson, the man who killed Brown, in which Wilson was described as a “well-mannered, relatively soft-spoken, even bland person.” Many said that the contrast seemed to fit a pattern in which black victims of crime are maligned in the media.

The small city of Jennings, Mo., had a police department so troubled, and with so much tension between white officers and black residents, that the city council finally decided to disband it. Everyone in the Jennings police department was fired. New officers were brought in to create a credible department from scratch.

That was three years ago. One of the officers who worked in that department, and lost his job along with everyone else, was a young man named Darren Wilson.
