Football Fan Threatens to “Fucking Cut” Native American


[A] blonde little wisp of a girl completely freaked me out as I waited in line for the bathroom. “Is that shirt supposed to be funny?” she asked motioning to my satirical“Caucasians” T-shirt. And then she said, “I’ll fucking cut you.” Actually, she didn’t scare me so much as the wannabe linebackers standing behind her who looked like they wanted to make good on her threat.

Fake cop shows teen weapon in Palo Alto


A man impersonating a police officer pulled a weapon on a teenager, chastising him for the way he was riding his bike, police said Friday.

The incident happened about 4 p.m. Sept. 5 as two teenage boys, both high school students, rode their bikes in a bike lane on Channing Avenue near Rhodes Drive.

They heard a voice on a public-address system in a car behind them ordering them to ride single file instead of side by side. When they looked back, they saw a car with no police markings, but assumed it was an unmarked police vehicle.

The teens complied with the stranger’s demands and separated at Greer Road.

That’s when the man followed one of the youths and again used the PA system, this time ordering the boy to stop, police said.

“When the student looked back, he saw flashing police-style lights emanating from inside the car,” police said.

The teen stopped his bike and the man pulled up alongside him, displayed a badge and “proceeded to angrily lecture him about his riding habits,” police said. The man then pointed either a stun gun or handgun at the roof of his car so the student could see it before driving away.

Police released a sketch of the man, described as a white male in his 60s with balding, short gray hair. He was about 5-foot-10 with a heavy build and wore a light blue collared shirt, similar to a uniform shirt.

The badge he displayed was silver but had a color design on it, with a green tree in the center. The man’s car was a cream-colored, four-door sedan with radio antennas on the roof.

Anyone with information is asked to call Palo Alto police at (650) 329-2413.

The Male Shooter Epidemic

  James Lorello asks us to consider creating authentic relationships with young men to curb violence.   In recent weeks the U.S. has seen a number of shootings around the country committed by men.  This includes shootings at military bases, schools and other public arenas. In the past, these types of incidents have raised questions around two topics; gun control and mental illness. While these topics contribute to the issue, a third should be added to the list. Why are most of these campus shooters men? What within their identity says that this violent tactic is the only way to heal from their past?   Recent work has debunked the claim that these shooters are simply “loners” and that social separation influences them to commit acts of violence. Katherine Newman, co-author of Rampage: The Social Roots of School Shootings says that these shooters “experience rejection all the time, but that doesn’t stop them from trying to join groups. They just fail, all the time.” Instead of being people who are lone wolves, they are individuals trying to fit in to a larger peer group. Today’s construction of masculine identity does not leave much room for those who do not fit in.  Whether too slow in gym class, or too smart, not good enough with the ladies, or too much acne. Young male groups are built upon tearing down those that are less than. This continual posturing forces men to establish themselves as the alpha male and therefore a “real man”.
