Maricopa County Deputy Shot and Killed: Fast and Furious Gun?

It looks like a comment from a Doug Ross reader has drawn attention to a horrible and potentially, very explosive development involving the shooting death of a Maricopa County sheriff's deputy. If officer William Cole was slain with a gun placed into the hands of bad guys by ATF's Operation Fast & Furious, Sheriff Joe Arpaio is likely to be front and center very quickly and his anger will be on full display.

Via AZ Central:
A veteran Maricopa County sheriff's deputy slain by a gunman early Sunday responding to a call at an Anthem strip-mall was just hours away from finishing his final night shift before switching to daytime duties.

Flags hung at half-staff across the state all day Sunday to honor Deputy William Coleman, 50, a 20-year veteran officer with two young children, and the first Maricopa County Sheriff's Office deputy slain in the line of duty since 1995.

His killer, who "came out shooting" when approached in his van by deputies in a parking lot just before dawn, was killed in an exchange of gunfire with two other deputies.
Here is the comment posted to Doug Ross' blog:
I would like to comment on the shooting of a Maricopa Deputy Sheriff Sunday morning 4am, north of Phoenix, AZ. The no comment policy of the AZ Central newspaper prevents readers from expressing thier views and suspicions on this tragic event. The 50 year old father of 2, died when his body armor was penetrated by an AK 47 bullet. Eric Holder and the DOJ are holding their breath that this weapon is not connected to Gunwalker's Fast and Furious. Real OLD MEDIA is dying, but real scandals are ongoing. That is my tie-in to your article. Censure me if you must.
Sipsey Street seems to think that if this gun ties back to Fast and Furious, we'll know soon.

Occupy Oakland Caught with Homemade Bomb

Shortly after the Occupy Wall Street movement began, it became apparent that Occupy Oakland was the most violent. A man was shot and killed there; the port was shut down in November; the damages have been extensive. It appears that these protesters are refusing to relinquish the title of being the most dangerous OWS'rs. They're now making homemade bombs.

Via the Mercury News:
Protesters were arrested on suspicion of assault on a police officer, resisting arrest and possession of explosives. Police said one person had a device that was the equivalent of a quarter stick of dynamite -- not an M-80 firecracker, Watson said, but a 6-inch-long explosive.

"I'd never seen anything like it before," she said. "That's not something that'll blow your thumb off; that's something that could easily kill you or take a body part off."

Video: Trailer for Documentary Slamming Romney for History at Bain Capital

Mitt Romney touts his private sector experience when attempting to differentiate himself from the other candidates. This necessarily must involve his time as CEO of Bain Capital. The subject of a 27 minute documentary that reportedly investigates what really went on with Romney at Bain was referenced in the two New Hampshire debates. Rights to the film have been purchased by Gingrich supporters. Here is the trailer.

Shocker! Hamas Leader Speaks to Masses in Tunisia

Seriously, at some point, the liberal media will have to come face to face with what it has done in helping the 'Arab Spring' become reality. This bit of news, that Hamas leader Isamail Haniyeh spoke to quite the crowd in Tunisia, is another in a long line of examples that demonstrate it.

Via Jerusalem Post:
...tens of thousands of Tunisians gathered outside the palatial government complex in the Tunisian capital to see Haniyeh speak, chanting in support of "Palestinian liberation."

Protesters also chanted "Death to Israel" and "the army of Mohammed is back," as Haniyeh reiterated his pledge not "to lay down our arms" or recognize Israel, according to AFP.

The Ennahda party, banned under the rule of ousted Tunisian president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, has since become the country's largest party, garnering 40 percent of votes in last October's parliamentary elections.

Haniyeh has traveled Arab and Muslim nations on a Middle East tour that began December 25, including Egypt, Sudan, Turkey and Tunisia.
This begs the question. How bad was Ben Ali if he banned a party that embraces Hamas?

The left in general and the liberal media in particular is on a collision course with its complicity in what is unfolding in the Middle East. It will only be able to deny reality for so long. Unfortunately, those of us who've known all along they've been wrong, will suffer many of the same consequences.
