Cop’s wife falsely blamed BLM for home robbery

Massacussets Police say on October 17 Maria Daly reported a burglary at the family home. She also said her house was tagged with Black Lives Matter graffiti.

According to Millbury Police Chief Donald Desorcy, investigators have determined the entire account was false.


“She must have tagged the place herself,” one neighbor said. “I don’t know why you’d do that, if you’re gonna stage a robbery, I mean really come on, you’re a cop’s wife. You should know better.”

The entire story shows how deeply hate infects minds of those, who work in law enforcement system and members of their families. They are ready to use a made-up story against peaceful civil rights activists and they will get away with it! Until law enforcement system is full of racists we will have no justice for us in this country!

The Greene Breechloading Bolt Action Rifle,

Inspired by the Prussian Dreyse needlefire rifle, the Greene rifle was a single shot bolt action breechloading rifle that saw limited use during the American Civil War. Invented by Lt. Col. J. Durrel Greene in 1857, the Greene rifle was the first American bolt action military rifle and the only underhammer percussion rifle that ever saw official military service.  The Greene rifle fired a .54 caliber combustible paper cartridge.  The most unique feature of the Greene rifle was it’s underhammer percussion system.  Located below the rifle in front of the trigger guard was the vent hole, nipple and a ring shaped hammer.  Before firing, the ring hammer would have needed to be cocked and a percussion cap placed on the nipple, which when struck provided a spark which discharged the combustible paper cartridge.  Like all underhammer systems, there was one major problem.  The percussion cap needed to be seated tightly and snugly on the nipple or it could fall off.

Production of the Greene rifle occurred between 1859 and the early 1860’s, manufactured by the A.H. Waters Armory in Millbury, Massachusetts.  1,500 rifles were produced for sale in the United States, 900 were purchased by the US Government and issued to Union soldiers during the Civil War.  Another 3,000 were produced for the Russian Government.

Greene 1857 Patent bolt action underhammer percussion rifle
Manufactured by A. H. Waters of Millbury, Massachusetts, USA in the early 1860′s, designed by U.S. Army Lt. Col. J. Durrell Greene.
This unusual rifle was the first American military bolt-action rifle, although only 900 were ordered. A bigger order of 3000 guns was made by Russia, but an obvious flaw in the gun’s design prevented its overall commercial success. Being an underhammer design, the percussion cap was placed under the barrel, in front of the trigger assembly, and once there nothing held it in place. This led to several inconvenience that led to the design’s failure to achieve any kind of notoriety.
This however did not stop Greene’s gunsmithing career, as he tried in 1872 -unsuccessfully once again- to secure a government order with his Greene-Barnekov 1870 Patent toggle lock rifle.
