13 Year Old Arrested After Post Shows Him Holding Gun

TRUMBULL, Conn. (AP) — A 13-year-old Connecticut boy has been arrested after police say he posted a photo of himself holding a handgun in a group text on social media.

Trumbull Police announced the arrest Sunday, a day after he made the posting.

They say a parent of one of the other students alerted them to the post after they saw it on their child’s cell phone.

Police say they determined there was no threat to the public. They say it turns out he was holding a BB gun and had cropped out the gun’s red tip when he took the picture.

The boy, who was not identified by police, was charged with disorderly conduct and was scheduled to appear in court March 3.

The lights are on and someone is home

The Conglomerate Lode

The other day whilst in the midst of job hunting under grey and threatening skies I was struck with uncommon sentiment so I did what comes natural I head for water’s edge.  No massive ocean close to hand, no pounding, crashing waves upon defenseless sand to steal the attention no, my choice the mighty Columbia River.  Sunlight reflects and strong winds out of the Columbia River Gorge catapult memory back, back, back bringing a smile of remembrance and the following from depths within:

Love is:  Amorous, heartfelt, kind, generous, euphoric

Love is:  Anguish, unease, sadness, mournful

An addicting drug, lonely, vacant

A high, a spectacular sunrise, sunset

The first snowfall, awe-inspiring mountain range

Water’s edge tickles the grey matter

Robust, steady wind caress the head, nature’s massage

Sadness in distant eyes

Melancholy moment


A sun break

Rain now across the glasses

Back to present time

Home now and through…

US is ‘new global villain,’ says American activist Jerry Day!!!


American activist and social media expert Jerry Day has called on the American nation to recognize the war crimes the U.S. government, military and corporate deep-state have committed in the Middle East and rest of the world. “They [U.S.] are simply bombing whatever they want to bomb, killing whoever they what to kill, destroying whatever they choose to destroy without legal grounds. We are the new global villain,” said Day.
