Sheriff’s deputy, one other person killed in Modesto shootings

UPDATE – A sheriff’s deputy and another person were shot and killed this morning in northwest Modesto as two deputies were serving civil papers at a home, Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christian said. The victims’ names have not been released. Meanwhile, SWAT teams from several agencies surrounded a home where a suspect is believed to have barricaded himself.



The resurrection of Jesus is the Cornerstone of our Christian Faith. If Jesus had not risen came back to life then there is no hope that any christian will be renewed in the body Jesus would be just another human who had a message. This is talked about through out the New testament. We know the Apostles witnessed Jesus alive after he was slain and entombed.
Jesus is alive forever more…….

12 Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?
13 But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen:
14 And if Christ be not risen, then [is] our preaching vain, and your faith [is] also vain.
15 Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.
16 For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:
17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith [is] vain; ye are yet in your sins.
18 Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.
19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.
20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, [and] become the firstfruits of them that slept.
21 For since by man [came] death, by man [came] also the resurrection of the dead.
22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
Resurrection of Christ
Jesus Christ’s resurrection from the dead is one of the cardinal facts and doctrines of the gospel.
“A long tradition going back to the first century, however, maintains that Jesus’ tomb is at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in the Old City of Jerusalem. In the 4th century, Constantine supposedly located the tomb site beneath a second century Roman temple. He constructed a church over it. This church has been restored and maintained over the centuries ever since. It is today shared by six faiths: Latin Catholics, Greek Orthodox, Armenians, Syrian, Copts and Ethiopians.”
If Christ be not risen, our faith is vain (1 Cor. 15:14). The whole of the New Testament revelation rests on this as an historical fact. On the day of Pentecost, Peter argued the necessity of Christ’s resurrection from the prediction in Psalm 16 (Acts 2:24-28). In his own discourses, also, our Lord clearly prophecied his resurrection (Matt. 20:19; Mark 9:9; 14:28; Luke 18:33; John 2:19-22).
The evangelists give accounts of the facts connected with that event, and the apostles, also, in their public teaching insist upon it.


1111 Retreat View Circle,this is where George Zimmerman made the original 911 call. The address 1111 Retreat View Circle is a clubhouse for the housing complex and right directly in front of the club house is the entrance to the housing complex. So any Neighborhood Watchman could easily park at the clubhouse and watch who enters and who exits the housing complex.
The shooting occurred in the back area of 1231 Twin Trees Lane. In the back area of Twin Trees Lane there is a long side walk which separates two long rows of condominiums three on each side and one condominium at the end which is the back area with the sidewalk where Trayvon Martin was shot and killed. From the satellite picture using FlashEarth there is hardly any trees or brush it is pretty much barren so a person parked at the club house could easily watch someone walking or running for about 200 feet from the entrance to the bend in the road.
The distance between the club house to the back area of 1231 Twin Trees lane is appromimately 422 feet and is open ground. According to the 911 call Zimmerman made the dispatcher believe Trayvon Martin was trying to get away since he could no longer see him but according to the satellite photo there is only one bend in the road. Zimmerman could easily follow Trayvon on foot and could clearly see what Trayvon was doing. There are three condominium buildings which all have eye sight of where the shooting occured.
Going back to Trayvon Martin and why he entered the housing complex. Trayvon told his father that He was going to the store. According to the satellite image there is a shopping center across the street and adjacent to the housing complex and the club house, the distance would be approx. 600 feet from the entrance of the housing complex to the shopping center.

911 dispatch transcript:
“This guy looks like he’s up to no good, or he’s on drugs or something,” Zimmerman tells the 911 operator. “He’s just staring, looking at all the houses. Now he’s coming toward me. He’s got his hand in his waistband. Something’s wrong with him.”
Zimmerman described Martin as wearing a hoodie and sweatpants or jeans. He continues: “He’s coming to check me out. He’s got something in his hands. I don’t know what his deal is. Can we get an officer over here?”
“These assholes always get away,” he says to the operator. Zimmerman is then heard giving directions to the dispatcher. “Shit, he’s running,” Zimmerman says.
“Are you following him?” the dispatcher asks.
“Yes,” Zimmerman responds.
“We don’t need you to do that,” the dispatcher says.
Zimmerman did in fact call Trayvon Martin a F@#$$% coon !

More questions:
According to the 911 dispatch transcript. Zimmerman told 911 that Trayvon Martin was headed for the back entrance which is the Eastern entrance and exit. Zimmerman was making a case of suspicion where there was none.
By hyping the case up to the 911 dispatch Zimmerman wanted to in sure a police response to the location. As I had said before this whole incident covers appromimately 422 feet on open ground with very few trees or brush.
Now the police are dispatched Zimmerman catches up with Trayvon and with time running out before the police arrive Zimmerman must do something to make his call legit to the police after all he has called the police 46 times in the past.
Understanding this that Zimmerman is armed so all it would take is for him to brandish his weapon and hold Trayvon at bay until the police arrive. Zimmerman wants a physical altercation to take place. Residents living in the housing complex have made complaints in the past against Zimmerman.
Here is what I suspect happened: A theory only.
1. Zimmerman is parked at the clubhouse and watches Trayvon exit the North West entrance. Zimmerman waits for Trayvon to return to the complex.
2. Zimmerman has found his target to carry out his plan. Trayvon returns to the North West entrance and now Zimmerman calls 911 dispatch. Zimmerman hypes up the case by saying Trayvon is acting suspicious and reaches for his waist and that he has something in his hand but he cannot tell what it he is coming toward me.
3. Zimmerman then begins to follow, Trayvon, As I said before it’s open ground.
4. Trayvon walks along the sidewalk to the back area in between the rows of condominiums he makes it to about 30 feet along the side walk behind one of the condos where Zimmerman catches up with him.
5. According to testimony from Trayvon’s girlfriend she is on the phone with Trayvon while this is happenning. Trayvon say’s He (Zimmerman) has caught up with him then suddenly an altercation occurs. I believe since Zimmerman has a hand gun that he then grabs Trayvon and forces Trayvon on top of him and screams for help as this would give him a self defense alibi, Zimmerman then shoots Trayvon.
This is premeditated murder.
On the evening that Trayvon Martin was killed the sun went down at 7:44 PM, the sky was overcast with some rain. About 40 miles away at the Daytona Beach speedway the Daytona 500 NASCAR Race was postponed due to the rain. The temperature was about 69 degrees.
The initial 911 call occurred around 1917 hours which is 7:17 PM the sun had not went down yet,the night was still young and this is Sunday February 26,2012 on a weekend when most folks are either home or at church,shopping. This is not an opportune time for a burglar to strike. There was no suspicious activity in the real world but only in the mind of George Zimmerman.

Rain leads to first postponement of Daytona 500
By David Caraviello, NASCAR.COM
February 26, 2012 7:41 PM, EST
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — History was made at the Daytona 500 on Sunday, but not the kind that anyone at Daytona International Speedway wanted to see. For the first time in the event’s long history, the Great American Race has been postponed to Monday because of weather.


TURLOCK – Massive chicken deaths maybe the result of an uprising which began around two weeks ago. According to reports coming in from the Roosters News Agency a watchdog group known as pro-poultry leftist, the uprising began when rumors that Andy Cheng also known as the “Chicken King” recently signed a contract with the American Pot Pie Corporation to sell all non egg producing hens to be used as meat for the pot pies and frozen chicken Nuggets.
What started out as a friendly protest against the mistreatment of egg laying hens in one chicken shed lead to the bloody violent uprising after the Chicken King grabbed an ax and began filling his quota of chicken hens to be sent to the American Pot Pie Corporation.
Ronald Mc Donald, CEO for the King Fried Corporation (KFC)while speaking to reporters on Monday said ” This mass kill off of chicken hens will not halt or slow down our production of chicken nuggets. Mr. King’s contract specified we wanted leaner, less fat organic chicken meat, I am appalled that these local government officials are euthanizing these chickens and stopping Mr.King from making enormous profits when Mr. king could have sold those chickens to us, 50,000 chickens makes a lot of frozen nuggets and pot pies.”
No word from PETA yet on the massive kill off. Ivan Gorbachev a Protester from the Occupy Wall Street crowd has issued a response in saying “This is just another example of Capitalism out of control, Capitalist Americans fascination with chicken nuggets caused all of this” OWS plans to camp out at the chicken ranch to protest the mistreatment of chicken hens.
Thousands of hens dead at Stanislaus County farm
By John Holland
An estimated 50,000 hens were left without feed at a Carpenter Road egg farm over about two weeks, officials said today.
About a third of the hens have died, and the rest are being euthanized because of their poor condition, said Annette Patton, executive director of the Stanislaus Animal Services Agency.


I feel like I am being intimidated to give a donation to President Obama’s campaign.
What happens if I don’t give any money to Obama’s campaign?
Will the President of the United States send his fascist police after me?
Will the IRS now audit me to see why I have not given a handout to Obama?
Friend? Did they just steal that line from John McCant?
I don’t appreciate the language and tone of this Email sent by Barack Obama.
Is this 1933 all over again?

Two questions for you

We have two quick questions for you. Can you take a minute to answer them?
Which best describes your attitude?*
I plan to donate to President Obama’s campaign in the next few months
I plan to donate after a Republican nominee is selected
I plan to donate in the last few months of the campaign
I do not plan to donate
I have already donated
OTHER: [please specify]
If other (please specify)
What’s one thing that would inspire you to donate to the Obama campaign?*


Ever hear of the saying about polishing a worm ridden apple? You can polish the outside of a worm infested apple and make it shiny but the apple still remains worm infested.
Changing the appearance is the goal for the Newly elected mayor of Modesto Garrad Marsh. Sometimes it really becomes obvious to others that some of these politicians are not in touch with the citizenry. Same old thing,same old lines,same old promises. Mayor Ridenour talked about standing still now Garrad Marsh trying to think of something special to say in a speech to the developers and business owners had to rehash Mayor Ridenour in talking about standing still. Polishing the apple.
Nothing new here just the same old hash as before served cold. Shills the whole lot.
Did I mention Marsh is a housing developer…bought and paid for.

New mayor pledges to lead Modesto ‘forward’
By Ken Carlson
Garrad Marsh was sworn-in Tuesday to begin a four-year term as Modesto’s mayor.
To a standing-room-only audience in the council chamber, he promised the city to “uphold your confidence and trust as your mayor as I lead Modesto forward.”
Marsh takes over from Jim Ridenour, who led the city through the economic highs and lows of the past eight years.
“I don’t believe we can be accused of standing still in the face of difficult times,” he said. “We have kept providing core services for our community, while keeping our financial house in order.”
In going through a light agenda Tuesday, the council concurred with Marsh’s suggestion to delay a decision on a new city logo until March 27.
Marsh wants to include the logo in the March city utility billings to get the public’s opinion. He stressed that Modesto will maintain the historic motto, “Water, Wealth, Contentment, Health.”
The logo, which will appear on the city Web site, stationery and vehicles, has been a sensitive topic after adverse public reaction to a city branding campaign unveiled in August.
The color graphic featuring a classic car, farmland and a child on a swing does not have a slogan, but is simply underlined by “Modesto, California.”

Politics/Social Action

FEBRUARY 18, 2011

NO MORE STANDING STILL ! Mayor Ridenour continually said Standing still, yes he was standing still while giveing the state of the city address the same address last year that he charged $40 per person to see his megalomania while on stage. I often wondered if the Mayor and the City Council members were singing the tune Living on the Ritz, with their top hats and walking sticks, you got the idea. For $40 dollars a person I would expect to see a show not some hum-drum speech telling us all what we already know.

The Valley of the poor. Modesto’s lame duck mayor continues to be the pitchman for the building developers, development,build more houses,build more shopping centers,build,build,build. Apparently, that’s the only solution he can think of to get Modesto out of this great depression and it’s getting worse.

Ridenour with his parrot Joe Muratore sitting on his shoulder and probably whispering in his ear, only see what they hope for as a solution,but the reality of realty is that the City of Modesto ranks third in all of the cities throughout the United States with the most foreclosures. Stockton 4th,Merced 5th,Bakersfield 9th,Sacramento 13th,Fresno 16th,Visalia 17th. Seven of the top 20 cities with the most foreclosures, are in the Central Valley of California. Remember the television series called Big Valley with the Barkley Family? We can now call that Big Valley the Big Valley of the Poor.
