Chilling PSA From Sandy Hook Group Warns of Subtle Signs of Gun Violence

“We saw that over the Thanksgiving holiday in Chicago, when 70 people were shot, nine of them fatally. They had been leaving each other notes on a desk, neither knowing the identity of their mysterious pen pal. Stephen Teret, founding director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research, said the video is powerful and “extraordinarily well done. “These acts are preventable when you know the signs. Everyone has the power to intervene and get help. While we watch Evan’s story, a darker tale is unfolding in the background. Many people are unaware of that there are specific signs that people give off that can indicate a violent act is imminent,” said Nicole Hockley, co-founder and managing director of Sandy Hook Promise. “We wanted to create an impactful visual to show that violence is preventable if you know the signs. But the much-awaited encounter was cut short when a single gunman appeared behind them at the school’s gym entrance. “I’d like to see the take-home message to be, we need a prevention policy in addition to the students, parents and teachers spotting a student creating havoc. 41.414112

On December 14, 2012, Adam Lanza killed 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, in one of the worst mass shootings in US history. “We want this video to inspire hope in those who watch it, to show them that we are not helpless in the face of gun violence and that there is something all of us can do to prevent it,” Hockley added. Her first-grade son, Dylan, died in the Sandy Hook massacre. Lanza also killed his mother at their home. The families of nine of the Sandy Hook victims filed a lawsuit against the gun manufacture, but it was dismissed. In a chilling new public service announcement, Sandy Hook Promise — the gun violence prevention group led by families of those killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School — conveys a powerful message, concealing and then revealing signs that may lead to gun violence. We know that people will be spending a lot of time with their families in the coming weeks, and we thought this could inspire them to have important conversations about how to prevent violence together,” she said.

NYC Mayor to Ask Congress for $35 Million to Cover Cost of Protecting Donald Trump

Every president is required to have local law enforcement protection when they return home during their tenures, but the cost associated with Trump are particularly expensive: He lives in the most densely-populated neighborhood of the nation’s biggest city. “We will begin the conversation with the federal government shortly on reimbursement for the NYPD for some of the costs that we are incurring.”
While primary responsibility for the protection of the president, or president-elect, rests with the Secret Service, local law enforcement is charged with assisting them, particularly in controlling movements of the general public. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio will announce Monday that he is asking Congress and Donald Trump for $35 million to cover the cost of protecting the president elect until the inauguration, according to a person familiar with the plan. “This is a very substantial undertaking. The new figure from de Blasio reflects updated budgeting, the source told CNN. Donald Trump has also indicated he plans to return home regularly, especially while his wife and child are still there. 40.712784

Nearly 2 Million Pounds of Ready-to-Eat Chicken Products Recalled: USDA

They include chicken breast strips with rib meat, boneless chicken cubes, chicken breast fajita strips and many more items. National Steak and Poultry issued a recall of more 1.9 million pounds of its ready-to-eat chicken products, the Unites States Department of Agriculture said Monday. The products are sold as fully cooked for consumers to heat and serve, but they may be undercooked. The USDA categorizes this as a class I recall which means there is “reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.”
However, there have been no confirmed reports of illness related to these products so far, according to the USDA. The total amount of products now subject to the recall is estimated to be 1,993,528 pounds. Undercooked poultry can harbor bacteria that can lead to gastrointestinal illness. That recall included 17,439 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken parts for the same reason. A complete list of recalled products can be found on the USDA website, www.fsis.usda.gov. The products were sold to retailers nationwide and were produced between August 20 and November 30 of this year. The expansion was prompted by a November 28 complaint from a customer about undercooked products, according to the USDA. They have a USDA inspection mark with P-6010T on it. The USDA Food Safety Inspection Service said the recall was issued, “due to adulteration because of possible undercooking, resulting in the potential survival of bacterial pathogens in the products.”
The announcement expands a recall first issued Nov. 23 by the Oklahoma-based company. 37.090240

We are called to lift up those that are down,” said Hartlen. “As we spoke I found out some wonderful news. “We are just using a different approach to get an age-old message communicated,” he said. So we decided it was best to take down the original post.”

Bullying, he wrote, is never okay and that’s the biggest reason for his change of heart. They feel just as strong about it as I do.
