EXCLUSIVE: Boy, 15, ‘shoots his pastor father and family dead with military-style assault rifle’ in bloody shooting rampage.

 

 

New Mexico pastor, woman, two girls and a boy shot dead during Saturday night shooting spree

 

 

Sheriff’s office identifies suspect as 15-year-old Nehemiah Griego, the pastor’s son

 

Each victim was shot multiple times

 

 

By THOMAS DURANTE and ASSOCIATED PRESS

PUBLISHED: 12:27 EST, 20 January 2013 | UPDATED: 16:04 EST, 20 January 2013

 

A 15-year-old boy is accused of using an assault rifle to kill his pastor father and other family members in their home last night, police have said.

 

The suspect, who was identified as Nehemiah Griego, was arrested shortly after the shooting at the Albuquerque, New Mexico, home.

 

Inside, police found the five victims – a man, woman, two girls and a boy – who were each shot multiple times.

One of the victims was identified as Gregory Griego, the alleged shooter’s father and a former pastor at the Calvary Albuquerque church.

The church confirmed Mr Griego’s death to MailOnline on Sunday.

 

The names of the other victims could not immediately be determined.

 

Investigators also were seeking to determine who owned several guns that were found at the home, one of which was a semi-automatic military-style rifle.

 

The juvenile suspect was charged this morning with two counts of murder, and three counts of child abuse resulting in death, according to the station.

 

Each victim was shot multiple times, authorities said.

 

Authorities would not reveal any details of their talks with the alleged gunman.

 

The tragedy comes just over a month after gunman Adam Lanza slaughtered 20 schoolchildren and seven women – including his own mother – in Newtown, Connecticut.

 

Lanza, who killed himself as police closed in on him, was armed with an AR-15 assault rifle.

 

The massacre ignited a fiery debate on gun control and resulted in President Obama’s push last week to ban assault weapons and intensify background checks on those purchasing guns.

To Repeat…….

 

Police say a teenage boy fatally shot two adults and three children inside an Albuquerque, N.M. home with an AR-15-like weapon Saturday night.

Bernalillo County sheriff’s spokesman Aaron Williamson told the Associated Press the boy was arrested and booked on murder charges. His name has not been released, but Albuquerque’s KOB-TV reported he is 15 years old.

The victims’ names have not been released, nor has the suspect’s motive or connection to them. Williamson said investigators were working to determine whether the victims were related. Two of the children were girls and one was a boy, according to the New York Daily News.

Williamson told the Daily News several guns were found in the home and used to commit the slayings. Police were seeking to determine who owned the weapons.

“We do know there was more than one weapon used in the crime, and it appears that one of them was a military-type assault rifle similar to an AR-15,” he said.

The teenager was booked on two counts of murder and three counts of child abuse resulting in death, according to the AP.

Just in case you didn’t understand……

 “A 15-year-old boy is accused of using an assault rifle to kill his pastor father Gregory Griego, pictured, and other family members in their home last night, police have said.”

 

The suspect, who was identified as Nehemiah Griego, was arrested shortly after the shooting at the Albuquerque, New Mexico, home.

 

Inside, police found the five victims – a man, woman, two girls and a boy – who were each shot multiple times.

 

 

This will continue to repeat itself….numerous times….until The NRAssholes are stopped.

A Word From Mr. Jon Carson, Executive Director Of Organizing For Action


By Jueseppi B.

 

 

ObamaforAmerica

 

 

 

I’m Jon Carson, the new executive director of Organizing for Action.

 

I hope you’re as excited as I am for this new organization, and for what our grassroots movement can accomplish in the next four years.

 

If you haven’t already, you should check out this short video First Lady Michelle Obama recorded about our organization, and then say you’re on board.

 

Just a little bit about me. I’m a Wisconsin guy, and I grew up on a farm in the western part of the state. In 2007, I joined Barack Obama’s campaign and served as the national field director. After the election, I went to work for the President in the White House, most recently in the Office of Public Engagement.

 

That brings me to now, when very soon, my family and I will be moving back to Chicago as I start this new role with all of you.

 

I first joined the President’s campaign because I was inspired by his belief that ordinary people have the power to change our country if we work together to get it done — and that belief will be at the core of this new organization as it unfolds.

 

And the way we’ll get it done can be summed up in one word: local.

 

That means each city or region will have its own OFA chapter, and you’ll decide the issues your community cares about most, the work you want to do to make progress on them, and the kind of support you’ll need to get it done.

 

At a neighborhood and regional level, OFA members will grow their local chapters, bringing in new leaders and helping train a new generation of volunteers and organizers to help fight for the issues at stake.

 

There’ll be times when we pull together at the national level to get President Obama’s back on passing major legislation, like reducing gun violence or immigration reform. And we’ll all work to help transform Washington from the outside while strengthening our economy and creating jobs.

 

But for the most part, the direction our work takes will be completely in your hands — with the support of this organization behind you every step of the way.

 

In the next few weeks and months, I’ll be asking for your input on putting together an OFA plan for 2013, we’ll be holding online briefings about the issues we want to tackle, and we’ll start organizing on those issues as they’re debated in D.C.

 

But for right now, I just want to say thanks and welcome. There’s a lot to be done, without a doubt — and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be part of OFA with you.

 

 

Take a look at the video the First Lady recorded this week, and go ahead — say you’re in:

http://my.barackobama.com/Organizing-for-Action

 

 

I’ll be in touch soon.

Thanks,

 

Jon

Jon Carson
Executive Director
Organizing for Action

 

P.S. — I recorded this short video on Organizing for Action, and the kind of work I hope we’ll be able to do –

The Second Term Starts Now


By Jueseppi B.

 

 

callout011913b

 

 

 

Tomorrow’s Presidential inaugural ceremonies mark the beginning of the fight for President Obama’s ambitious second-term agenda.

 

But it’s not just President Obama’s agenda. It’s yours too.

 

The fight to protect Medicare, Social Security, and an equal playing field for all Americans won’t be easy. But we can do it if we stand together. 

 

President Obama needs to know that you’re behind him. Take the pledge and tell President Obama that you’re a strong supporter of his second-term agenda. Make sure you act before his inaugural address at noon tomorrow! Let’s get 150,000 strong united behind our President.

 

The inaugural ceremonies tomorrow are going to be incredible. But nothing will compare to how much we’ll accomplish over the next four years if we stand together.

 

 
President Obama takes the oath of office at noon tomorrow! If you’re a supporter of President Obama, tell him that you back his second term agenda before he takes the stage.

 

Thanks for your support,

Today, in two separate, private ceremonies, President Obama and Vice President Biden were officially sworn into office, marking the start of the second term. (The Constitution mandates that the President takes the oath on January 20. Since that date falls on a Sunday this year, the public inauguration ceremony and festivities will take place tomorrow, January 21)

 

President Obama took the oath, administered by Chief Justice John Roberts, in the Blue Room of the White House, using a bible that belonged to First Lady Michelle Obama’s paternal grandparents.

First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden Celebrate the Inauguration with Military Families

 

Colleen Curtis
By  Colleen Curtis  January 20, 2013  The White House Blog

 

The First and Second Ladies of the United States got an early start on the 2013 Inauguration celebrations at a concert honoring our military families.

 

The Kids Inaugural: Our Children, Our Future was hosted by Nick Cannon and featured artists including Katy Perry, Usher, the cast of “Glee,” Far East Movement and Mindless Behavior. JR Martinez, the Army hero who won “Dancing with the Stars,” also joined Mrs. Obama and Dr. Biden for the event, which was held at the Washington Convention Center.

 

Dr. Biden said the concert was a chance to show military kids how much the country appreciates the sacrifices they make while their parents are serving.

 

The First Lady told the crowd that while she loves “every single minute” of the inaugural celebrations, the Kids Concert was the true highlight:

 I have to tell you that my very favorite part of this entire weekend is being right here with all of you. Absolutely. Because for me, this is what inauguration is all about. It’s about celebrating who we are as Americans and all the things that make this country so great. And when I think about who we are, when I think about what makes America great, I think about all of you –our men and women in uniform, our military spouses, and our amazing military kids.

 

The concert was held in support of Joining Forces, the initiative launched by Mrs. Obama and Dr. Biden to mobilize all sectors of society to give our service members and their families the opportunities and support they have earned.

They will reenact their oaths at Monday’s public inaugural ceremony at the Capitol.

Every person has the exact same expression of surprise or shock on their face, except one, President Obama.

He is the only person in this photo who doesn’t have his mouth open and his eyebrows are neither raised or “knitted.”

His eyes only barely give away the fact that something intense is happening at that moment. It speaks volumes of his ability to stay cool and keep his emotions in check. My President always under control even in his intense moments!
