death

LOS ANGELES, CA – Ex-rap music mogul Marion “Suge” Knight was arrested Thursday after he allegedly pointed a gun at a man and then drove off in his Cadillac, police said.

Knight, 45, was stopped by California Highway Patrol officers in suburban Gardena at about 12:30 a.m. and immediately turned over to Los Angeles police who swarmed around his white Escalade, according to police and news videos.

Knight was booked for investigation of assault with a deadly weapon — a gun — and also on a misdemeanor warrant alleging that he drove with a suspended license, Harding said.

He was being held on $65,000 bail, she said. (UPDATE: He posted bail last night)

It was not immediately clear whether Knight, a convicted felon, was still on parole. If he is, carrying a gun would be a parole violation that could end him back in jail.

On Tuesday, the toll of American dead in Afghanistan passed 1,000, after a suicide bomb in Kabul killed at least five United States service members. Having taken nearly seven years to reach the first 500 dead, the war killed the second 500 in fewer than two.

I hope the Taliban death toll is in the 5 digit range.

To those that serve, thank you.

I bloged about the unrest in Thailand a couple of other times HERE and HERE, and it seems to have got a lot worse there.  It appears that both sides are now using guns, and even utilizing snipers to take out key targets.

Unlike the last time I posted about the Thailand protests (HERE), this time they seem to be carrying guns with ammunition.

Those “red shirt” anti-government protesters are definitely bold.

  • Boxes of ammunition, mortars, rockets, missiles?
  • Tons of fuel left in the tanks?

How hard would it have been to put everything on a pile and blow it up?  I don’t buy it… My guess is the Taliban is just making that up to appear stronger.

I do think its odd that the U.S. never bothered to blow up all the buildings on the base though. Why bother leaving anything for the enemy besides a pile of rubble?

Hat Tip: Solomon
