Caught on Video- Heavily Armed SWAT Team Bursts Through Gamer’s Door With Guns Drawn After Prank Call About a Shooting

A dangerous prank prompted a SWAT raid on a Colorado gamer Wednesday, when an anonymous caller told police he had shot multiple people at an office building.

Heavily armed police burst through the door of an office in Littleton, where gamer Jordan Mathewson was playing Counter-Strike, reported KMGH-TV.

Mathewson — who calls himself “Koostra” online — is part of a gamers group called The Creatures, who livestream video of themselves playing against one another online, and he recorded the entire incident.

In video posted on YouTube, the gamer suspects he may be the victim of a “swatting” prank because he can hear officers clearing the building outside the office door.

“There’s a somewhat, not really common, prank that happens,” said Daniel Gidlow, another member of The Creatures. “While we’re live streaming to thousands of people, somebody calls the cops.” (via RawStory


The guy removes his headphones just as police enter with their guns drawn and order him to the ground. At least five officers surround him, he is handcuffed. 
This is all the result of a prank call.


VIDEO-- Obama: 'We Don't Have a Strategy' to Fight ISIS


Then get one! Come off the golf course, sit down with senior military advisors and come up with a plan to immediately hit ISIS camps, ISIS targets, ISIS command and control and every convoy of vehicles that's carrying a black flag. How hard is this? We need a freaking 'strategy' on the way forward?

Uhhh, we don't have a strategy yet. Take your time genius.

ABC News
President Obama admitted today that his administration does not have a strategy in combating the militant Islamic group ISIS that has grabbed large chunks of Iraq and Syria.

The president said he would be meeting today with the National Security Council.

“The options that I’m asking for from the Joint Chiefs focuses primarily on making sure that ISIL is not overrunning Iraq,” Obama said using another acronym for the militant Islamic group ISIS.

"We don’t have a strategy yet. We’re seeing some news reports suggesting we are further ahead than we are,” he said.

Obama said he is dispatching Secretary of State John Kerry to the area to work with allies, and ordered Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel to prepare “a range of options” as he considers future military action.

“As commander in chief, I will always do what is necessary to protect the American people,” he said during a news conference in the White House briefing room. “Our military action in Iraq has to be part of a broader comprehensive strategy

AFL-CIO Prez Trumka: Hillary Clinton is 'Very, Very Qualified to be President'...She Did an 'Excellent Job As Secretary of State'

Knee-slapper Rich.

'Care to name some of her accomplishments as Sec. of State?

Washington - Richard Trumka is not ready to endorse Hillary Clinton for president in 2016. But that may be because, as he says, "there is no there, there."

At a breakfast with journalists on Thursday, the labor icon and president of the AFL-CIO spoke highly of Clinton, the former secretary of state and favorite for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016, but he did raise some questions that he hopes Clinton will answer if she runs.

"I think that Hillary did an excellent job as secretary of state. I think she is very, very qualified to be president," Trumka said at the breakfast, which was hosted by The Christian Science Monitor. "We watch every single day. And my thoughts are it is too early to say. There is no there, there yet."

Despite being laudatory, Trumka's comments should not be seen as an early endorsement of Clinton.

"Would I say she is the favorite now? Yes," he said. "But I think anytime anybody believes there is going to be a coronation, that is dangerous for the candidate."

The AFL-CIO recently came to an agreement with all its member unions that "no one will endorse [in 2016] until we say all of us are going to endorse,"

Boston Marathon Bombing Survivor Marries Nurse He Met While Recovering


James Costello, 31, of Malden, Mass., married Krista D’Agostino, a nurse he met during his recovery after suffering serious burns on his arms and legs in the explosion near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on April 15 of last year.

Costello was the subject of one of the most widely viewed images in the wake of the blast. A photographer captured him staggering through the streets with his clothes shredded and his legs burned.

NBC Today
Boston Marathon bombing survivor James Costello and Krista D'Agostino, a nurse who cared for him during his rehabilitation, tied the knot on Saturday in a wedding donated by local businesses

In an appearance on TODAY in December, Costello said that being injured in the bombing was a blessing in disguise because it led him to meet D'Agostino, who was working a six-week temporary stint as a traveling nurse at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital.

Costello had been transferred there after undergoing multiple surgeries at Massachusetts General Hospital following the bombing on April 15, 2013. It led to a romance that resulted in their engagement during a 10-day trip to France in December.

"One thing that she hates that I always say is I’m actually glad I got blown up,'' Costello told Savannah Guthrie on TODAY in December. "I wish everyone else didn’t have to, but I don’t think I would have ever met her if I didn’t, so I’m pretty happy."


Georgia: College Professor Bans Students From Saying “Bless You” After Someone Sneezes

Last week, a Tennessee high school student was suspended for saying 'bless you' after someone sneezed

Students enrolled in certain classes at the College of Coastal Georgia may want to think twice about coming to class sick—or else their peers may get into trouble.

Dr. Leon Gardner, assistant professor of chemistry at the college, made it clear in his to Introductory Physics class syllabus that he does not tolerate disruptive behavior while he is teaching—and that includes everything from talking to classmates, sharpening a pencil, and to saying “bless you.”

“We are taught that it is polite to say ‘bless you’ when someone sneezes. However, if you say this while I am talking, it is NOT polite, it is very rude,” Gardner’s syllabus, which was provided to Campus Reform via email, states

...The professor promises to take up to 15 percent of a student's final grade if they disrupt his class.
