Facebook “have got blood on their hands” over Lee Rigby murder

Fusilier Rigby’s sister, Sara McClure, 25, said: “Facebook have my brother’s blood on their hands. I hold them partly responsible for Lee’s murder.”

The family of Lee Rigby have accused Facebook of failing to help stop his killers.

They said the internet giant had “blood on its hands” because it had hosted exchanges between one of the soldier’s murderers and an Al Qaeda extremist, in which the former said: “Let’s kill a soldier.”

However, the social network’s staff failed to tell MI5 about the “graphic and emotive” posts from Michael Adebowale, made just six months before the atrocity took place.

Incredibly, Facebook had already disabled seven of his accounts – five of which were flagged over links to extremism – without informing security services.

Fusilier Rigby’s sister, Sara McClure, 25, said: “Facebook have my brother’s blood on their hands. I hold them partly responsible for Lee’s murder.”

“I suppose it has given me someone to blame but I’m not sure that’s what I wanted. Knowing it could have been prevented and it wasn’t prevented. I blame the failings of MI5 and the internet companies. Mainly the internet companies.”

In a long-awaited report, Parliament’s Intelligence and Security Committee yesterday said that had MI5 known about Adebowale’s messages, Fusilier Rigby’s murder could have been avoided.

Ferguson protesters ‘threatening to rape frontline officers’ wives and kill their children’ (Video)

Police wife tells how her husband was angrily ‘screamed at’ as he faced demonstrators who threatened home invasion, rape and murder. St Louis county police warned of ‘vocal and defiant protesters’ making ‘insulting personal verbal attacks on officers’. Spouses and children of cops in Ferguson, Missouri, have received assault and death threats after the shooting of Michael Brown.

Protesters in Ferguson have been threatening to rape the wives of front line police and kill their children during the latest clashes, the wife of one officer has claimed.

The unnamed woman said that her husband has been ‘screamed at’ as he faced off with the angry crowds amid heightened tensions in the suburb of St Louis, Missouri.

She told Fox 2 News that they threatened a home invasion in an apparent attempt to provoke the officers.

The wife claimed the protesters said: ‘We’re going to go to your house. ‘We`re going to rape your wives then we`re going to kill them and we`re going to kill your children’.

The allegations comes after many police officers’ families in Ferguson, Missouri, were reported to be in hiding or running from town amid death and assault threats.

One police wife told KTVI that she’s received threats over the phone and she’s been paranoid for her and her young daughter’s safety ever since.

ISIS Beheads American Peter Kassig, Recent Convert to Islam & Former Army Ranger (Video)

The Islamic State (IS/ISIS/ISIL) released a video on Sunday showing what the group claims is the severed head of American aid worker Peter Kassig.

Kassig, who previously served the United States military as an Army Ranger, was captured last year while delivering medical aid to a region in northern Syria.

In the video, the jihadi executioner says to the camera, while standing above what he claims is the severed head of Kassig:

This is Peter Edwards Kassig, a US citizen of your country. Peter, who fought against the Muslims in Iraq whilst serving as a soldier in the American army, doesn’t have much to say. His previous cellmates have already spoken on his behalf.

Holder Takes Death Penalty off Table for Gang Members Charged with Killing Cop

On November 14, federal prosecutors made it clear that Attorney General Eric Holder has “taken the death penalty off the table” for four men charged in the gang-related murder of Waynesboro, Virginia, police officer, Captain Kevin Quick.

The Daily Progress reports that 45-year-old Quick was reported missing on February 1. His body was found days later. Siblings Daniel Mathis, Shantai Shelton, and Mersadies Shelton have been charged in the death. A fourth person, Kweli Uhuru, has also been charged. All four men “belong to the Bloods gang set 99 Goon Syndikate,” and their trial begins on May 4.

Prosecutor Timothy J. Heaphy says Holder is responsible for making the call on death penalty cases. He said, “[The AG] reviews each potential death penalty case at his kitchen table, often late at night. I have known [Holder] for years and continue to have great confidence in him and his judgment.”

Halisi Uhuru and Anthony Stokes have also been charged in connection with Quick’s death.

University Of Illinois Mulls Re-Hiring TERRORIST CONVICTED OF MURDER (Video)

After a nearly three-decade life on the lam spent largely in South Africa under the alias John Pape, Kilgore served six years in prison in the U.S. for second-degree murder. While on the run, he got a Ph.D. and wrote articles, novels and a textbook.

This week, the Board of Trustees at the University of Illinois will consider hiring convicted murderer and 1970s-era Symbionese Liberation Army terrorist James Kilgore— for the second time.

Prior to this academic year, Kilgore spent four years as an adjunct professor of global studies and urban planning at the University of Illinois system’s semi-prestigious flagship campus at Urbana–Champaign.

Before Kilgore scored his taxpayer-funded faculty position, he was imprisoned for six years because he had participated in a 1975 bank robbery during which bank customer Myrna Opsahl was murdered.

Opsahl, who bled to death on the floor of the bank, was a 42-year-old mother of four.

Fast and Furious: FBI Now Linked to Murder of U.S. Border Agent

According to allegations made by Dodson in a recent interview with the Arizona Republic, Terry’s killers — employed by the FBI operatives in question — were sent to the border for a “drug rip-off” mission based on “intelligence” from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). The alleged goal of helping the FBI’s men steal the large drug shipment was supposedly to increase their clout among the duo’s fellow criminals, the whistleblower argued.

In the latest explosive twist to the Obama administration’s deadly “Fast and Furious” gun-running scandal, one of the key whistleblowers has now identified the FBI as a crucial player in the infamous 2010 murder of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. According to Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) Special Agent John Dodson, the criminals responsible for murdering border agent Terry were actually working for the two FBI operatives at the center of the Obama administration’s deadly plot to arm Mexican drug cartels.

As The New American and other sources reported in early 2011, the ATF was linked to Terry’s murder almost from the start. Indeed, two of the weapons found at the murder scene in Peck Canyon were traced back to Fast and Furious. The slaying of the elite federal border agent, who was killed near the U.S.-Mexico border by drug-cartel operatives armed by the Obama administration via the ATF, was the last straw for some of the officials involved in the scandal.

Afghanistan Veteran Murdered at Homecoming Party (Video)

Francisco Garcia, 22, an Army serviceman who was discharged from Afghanistan two weeks ago, was fatally shot early Sunday morning in the middle of a party celebrating his homecoming, according to LAPD Detective Juan Santa and CBS Los Angeles. The Sylmar Police Department reported that Garcia’s girlfriend had hosted a party for him at her home, and then, at 2:00 a.m. the party moved to a different location down the street.

Apparently Garcia was simply standing on the sidewalk when a dark SUV and a white car that was either a Toyota or a Honda parked nearby at Sylmar High School, according to CBS Los Angeles. Police reports reportedly say that a Latino man exited the SUV, smashed a beer bottle, and started yelling at Garcia. The Latino man crossed to the white car, took out a handgun and shot Garcia, who died at the scene.

Lt. Paul Vernon, commanding officer of the Mission Detective Division, was quoted by CBS Los Angeles, “It appears Francisco was the target of the attack. Apparently, a simmering dispute had boiled over during the night, and this suspect came looking for Francisco. Figuring out the dispute should lead us to the shooter.”

Later Sunday morning friends of Garcia met at the crime scene. Interviewed by Joy Benedict of KCAL9, they said that Garcia was on the verge of a lifelong dream when he was murdered; he had just been accepted into the California Highway Patrol Academy.

Mexican Attorney General: 43 Students Were Executed and Bodies Burned

Mexican authorities have announced that the 43 students that had been kidnapped by police were executed, their bodies set on fire and the remains dumped in river.

The revelation was made Friday by Mexico’s Attorney General Jose Murillo Karam when he gave an update on the investigation into missing students from Ayotzinapa in the Mexican State of Guerrero.

The municipal police from the rural towns Iguala and Cocula had kidnapped the students on September 26 as they made their way to Iguala to protest an event held by the mayor’s wife.

Under the orders of Iguala’s Mayor Jose Luis Abarca the cops kidnapped the students and then turned them over to hitmen from the Guerrero’s Unidos drug cartel.

According to witness testimony from three suspects who confessed to the murders, the students were executed, their bodies set on fire and the remains places inside trash bags which were dumped into a river, Murillo Karam said.

Murder suspect on personal jihad may have been groomed in Seattle barber shop (Video)

Ali Muhammad Brown, who hung out at the barber shop, is facing four murder charges in two states as police investigate his life thoroughly. A Fox News request for an interview with Brown and his attorney were declined. Brown is currently held in New Jersey’s Essex County jail.

A man accused of killing four people in two states is believed to have ties to a disrupted terrorist cell, a terrorist training camp on U.S. soil, and federal investigations going back more than a decade, a Fox News investigation has revealed.

Details of Ali Muhammad Brown’s life in crime and connections to radical Islam prior to the killings of a college student in New Jersey and three other men in Washington state since April 2014 is under renewed scrutiny. After his arrest in July, Brown, 29, told detectives from both states that he “was engaged in jihad” and referred to the specific murder of one victim, Brendan Tevlin, as a “just kill.”

Tevlin, 19, was murdered in West Orange, N.J., on June 25 while sitting in his car at a traffic light. He was shot eight times. Besides Brown, two other men have been arrested in Tevlin’s murder — Jeremy Villagran and Eric Williams.

Seattle authorities say ballistics link the same 9-mm. handgun that Brown used to kill Tevlin in New Jersey to three other homicide investigations in Washington state. On June 1, 23-year-old Dwone Anderson-Young and 27-year-old Ahmed Said were killed “execution style” as they sat inside a car in Seattle, Wash.
