After almost two weeks of searching, two bodies were found just outside a drain pipe a few miles from where the father was found. Probably the heavy rain of Saturday flushed them out. Considering some objects in the case were found near the bodies it's assumed that these are the little lads.

That is just horribly sad.

It's been bringing up the hairs in the back of my neck for days. He strangled his own kids, cute little blonde fellows, with tie down straps! Eek!

Driver Impaled By Flying Metal Pipe On I-580 In Livermore

May 22, 2013 11:53 AM

Image

LIVERMORE (CBS SF) — A man was killed in a freak accident on I-580 in Livermore when a metal pipe crashed through his windshield.

Officers responded to the crash near Grant Line road shortly after 8 a.m., and found a Volvo XC70 station wagon in the median.

The 33-year old man was driving west on I-580 when the pipe flew through the windshield, impaling the driver.

CHP officers found the victim and pronounced him dead at the scene.

Officers were trying to determine where the pipe came from.

May 22nd, 2013 -PERSON DEAD WITHOUT A HEAD CONFIRMED AS BRITISH SOLIDER. TWO SOMALIANS CRITICALLY INJURED.

One man is reported dead and two others injured amid reports of a shooting incident close to the Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich, U.K. this afternoon.One witness reported seeing a man beheaded in the street in an attack by two men.

The Full unedited statement from one of the London Muslim beheaders was
censored and misreported by the British press, including the ITV clip
shown on their channel and all subsequent news networks, including the
Guardian, both which intentionally left out the Beheader justifying his
act by referring to the Quran, the ITV clip intentionally had a voice-over narration from the beginning of the muslims statement where he mentions the Quran in order to justify his actions, and the Guardian completely left it out and left it up in the air as to the motives of the Muslim beheaders. The BBC did not mention it all and simply referred to it as an 'incident.

That's some heavy duty shit jpd. So many questions and no one left to answer. I thought our press was bad and bias, but changing and dubbing the attackers words is just plain wrong! If you follow all the links you can get a better idea of what transpired there. Not from the cops or the news.
Friggin' horrible senseless act of violence. But it's ok if "the west" does it in the mid-east. :roll:

On a brighter note May 22 is the anniversary of my first date with Mrs.Plook 35 years ago, we saw Todd Rundgren with the Hello People at the Roxy.

Our show was immortalized on the Back to the Bars album which approximately 1/2 of the two album set came from our show.

On side 2 my friend Frank is the “whoop of recognition” and I can be heard calling out “get down Todd” when he was trying to record Cliché on acoustic with a piano accompaniment.

He had to restart the song 3 times. After the second attempt someone yelled “3 strikes and your out”, Todd came back with “3 strikes and your out buddy…” everyone laughed. I called out “get down Todd”, which got a huge laugh and some gal yelled “ignore the asshole”.

The rest is history… :smoke:

Apparently not enough to cut it from the album, the whole exchange was pretty funny… :!:

He had just got done shredding for 3 songs or so with this huge band had to be close to 9 or more and now he is sitting their on a stool with an acoustic guitar and piano trying to get a take of that song for the album and saying “get down” just struck a cord... :idea:

Really got a good laugh, check it out its on the album… :wink:

Side note the Mrs. and I were discussing it and we have to locate the picture we took before we left, we matched perfectly and had not planned on it, we should have seen the sign... :mrgreen:

I saw this on a link from your last post and thought these guys aren't hanging around to give up. The one who's voice is dubbed and he's holding a machete in his bloody hands has been a regular at all the anti western, Muslim backed, hate rally's. He converted to Islam a few years ago and has kept getting more radical even though he's a natural born UK citizen. He was only 24 and fighting for his "ancestrial homeland".
The guy's fuckin' nuts and a few of his buddy's are the same way and still spreading the hate. We need to get outta other peoples countries and biz. They fuckin' hate us! This one is home grown, his buddy's aren't. The one I saw on TV was a student from Iraq studying here. All he could say was how proud he was of his dead friend and wished he had the courage to do what we're doing to them in Iraq to us, ad nauseam.
If my family was killed by a drone strike, I guess I'd hate the SOB's that did it too. Apparently I'm not the only one either.

What I found interesting about this story is that both the main channels in the UK, BBC and ITV, edited out all the comments the murderer made about Allah, the Qur'an and the Islamic background of this deed, whereas the conservative media channels all showed the entire statement and stressed the fact that they were Muslims. I'm not entirely sure whether I find the former's position ethical.
On a different note, I wonder whether the political reaction is not a prime example of electioneering. Cameron cuts short a state visit and returns to London for emergency meetings and a press conference about the, admittedly brutal, murder of one individual. I wonder if somebody else had been run over and beheaded by a plain psychopath whether he would have done the same.

what are you nuts? These guys did this for their religious reasons that is the point! Sure some psycho can and will do something like this but the reasoning for that is superfluous to this situation. At this time in the world Islamist radicals are spreading their ideology everywhere. Would you rather not have the story reported on completely or just a sanitized so called politically correct version.
