From The Intersection Of Madness And Reality: Sister Shoots & Kills Brother Posing With Gun For Facebook Photos

By Jueseppi B.



Brother & Sister: Msnuel Ortiz & Savannah Ramirez. Police believe both Ramirez and Ortiz were drinking and the weapon was in Ramirez’s hand when it accidentally discharged. If blood tests confirm that alcohol was indeed involved, Phoenix police Sgt. Steve Martos said Ramirez would likely be charged with manslaughter.



I met Mr.  about a week ago on Twitter, I admire & respect his blog, and his mind.


About the author

RiPPa is the creator, publisher, and editor-in-chief of The Intersection of Madness & Reality. As a writer, he uses his sense of humor, sarcasm, and sardonic negro wit to convey his opinion. Being the habitual line-stepper and fire-breathing liberal-progressive, whether others agree with him, isn’t his concern. He loves fried chicken, watermelon, and President Barack Obama. Yes, he’s Black; yes, he’s proud; and yes, he says it loud. As such, he’s often misunderstood.





This cause, about guns being in the hands of ordinary everyday America citizens, is near & dear to my heart. This story out of  Phoenix, Arizona, just breaks my heart.





Sister Shoots and Kills Brother Posing with Gun for Facebook Photos


by  Jan 05, 2013


So, are you having a Happy New Year thus far? Hopefully you are, because there are many who are not. Case in point, check out what happened to the Ramirez and Ortiz family of Phoenix, Arizona. Like many across America, their celebration of the new year involved guns. Now, I don’t know where you may live, but it’s very common to hear the occasional celebratory gunshot around here at midnight when the ball drops. Unfortunately for the Ramirez family, their moment of joy turned to tragedy, when the 19-year-old Savannah Ramirez accidentally shot her older brother while attempting to take photos for Facebook. Yep, yet another case that proves that alcohol and guns do not mix.


This from Gawker:


“A 19-year-old woman in Phoenix who accidentally shot and killed her brother was posing with a gun for Facebook photos, according to local police.

Savannah Ramirez and her brother, 22-year-old Manuel Ortiz, were celebrating New Year’s Eve at Ortiz’s apartment along with three other people, when a Facebook photo shoot with a gun turned deadly.”


Police believe both Ramirez and Ortiz were drinking and the weapon was in Ramirez’s hand when it accidentally discharged. If blood tests confirm that alcohol was indeed involved, Phoenix police Sgt. Steve Martos said Ramirez would likely be charged with manslaughter.


“Every New Year’s Eve, this particular sister is going to be thinking about this for the rest of her life,” Martos said.


Sister Accidentally Shoots & Kills Brother Posing For Facebook Photo




You know that silly argument that many refuse to accept that says guns don’t kill, but it is people with guns who do? I think in this case, at least, it can be said that this accidental shooting supports the aforementioned argument. But don’t tell that to the NRA president, Wayne La Pierre.

1.   The Deficit Has Grown Mostly Because Of The Recession

The deficit has ballooned not because of specific spending measures, but because of the recessionThe deficit more than doubled between 2008 and 2009, as the economy was in free fall, since laid-off workers paid less in taxes and needed more benefits. The deficit then shrank in 2010 and 2011.

2.   The Stimulus Cost Much Less Than Bush’s Wars, Tax Cuts

Republicans frequently have blamed the $787 billion stimulus for the national debt, but, when all government spending is taken into account, the stimulus frankly wasn’t that big. In contrast, the U.S. will have spent nearly $4 trillion on wars in the Middle East by the time those conflicts end, according to a recent report by Brown University.  The Bush tax cuts have cost nearly $1.3 trillionover 10 years.

I happen to vote in the sometimes great state of Iowa, and this Matt Schultz is a low education idiot. Thank you The Fifth Column for this updat on racist TeaTardedRepubliCANT voter suppression efforts in Iowa.

Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz

Many have suggested that the Republican Party is headed toward obscurity and insignificance.

This story and all the efforts at voter suppression, the war on women and other nefarious measures to insure that conservative ideology is dominant national policy, will be the main reason for the demise of the GOP…

Think Progress

When Secretary of State Matt Schultz attempted to purge voters from the rolls in advance of the November 2012 election, a county judgetemporarily blocked the move, finding that the rules issued by Schultz created fear and uncertainty and could deter legitimate voters. But that risk of voter suppression hasn’t stopped Schultz from proposing a new slightly tweaked rule to remove registered voters in the name of alleged voter fraud.

The rule would allow Schultz’s office to challenge the legitimacy of registered voters who are listed as noncitizens in the Department of Transportation database. Citing…
