Every Black person who thinks these open-carry laws are for YOU, here’s some news: YOU can’t safely hold a TOY BB gun in a Walmart TOY section without being shot to death.

 

Cops Gun Down Ohio Man Holding Toy Rifle In Walmart ‘Like He Was Not Even Human.’

 

Published on Aug 8, 2014

“I could hear him just crying and screaming,” Johnson said. “I feel like they shot him down like he was not even human.”
(Dayton Daily News) Man police shot in Walmart killed over fake gun, family says
Relatives of John Crawford, the man shot dead by police at a Beavercreek Walmart, say they’ve contacted civil rights organizations because they believe the shooting was not justified.

 

They believe he was killed possibly after he picked up a toy gun in the store.

 

Crawford, 22, of Ridge Drive in Fairfield, was identified as the man Beavercreek police shot and killed Tuesday night.

 

LeeCee Johnson, who said she is the mother of Crawford’s children, said she was on a cell phone call with Crawford when he was shot by officers. She said Crawford went to the area to visit family members.

 

“We was just talking. He said he was at the video games playing videos and he went over there by the toy section where the toy guns were. And the next thing I know, he said ‘It’s not real,’ and the police start shooting and they said ‘Get on the ground,’ but he was already on the ground because they had shot him,” she said, adding: “And I could hear him just crying and screaming. I feel like they shot him down like he was not even human.”

 

Beavercreek Police Chief Dennis Evers did not answer questions Wednesday but said officers acted appropriately.

Johnson said she has two children with Crawford: John Crawford IV, who is 1, and Jayden Crawford, who is 4 months old. She just found out she is pregnant with a third child, but never got the chance to tell Crawford.

 

“He had a lot of family members that cared about him, and his kids. They’re not going to be able to know their dad. They’re too young — only 4 months and a year old — to even know how wonderful he was to them,” she said.

 

Johnson said police did not talk to her at the time of the shooting. She believes the police did not do their job properly and wants to see justice done. Once the case is reviewed, they will find everything she said is consistent with what camera footage and phone records will show.

 

“I hope the police get fired and sent to jail, because (the officer who fired) didn’t do his job. He didn’t treat him like a human being. He didn’t treat him someone at Walmart looking at toy guns,” she said.

 

Beavercreek Police and the Ohio Attorney General’s Office, when contacted Wednesday, refused to say whether Crawford was armed with a toy or a real weapon.

 

“I can’t comment – that’s part of the open investigation,” Attorney General’s Office spokeswoman Jill Del Greco said.

 

Lamon Brown, Crawford’s cousin, spoke on behalf of the family. The family has contacted the NAACP and National Action Network, he said.

 

“He does not own (a rifle-like weapon). We think it was a toy,” Brown said. “We actually think it was a toy. After these things happen they usually report what kind of gun it was, but they’re not saying what kind of gun it was.”

 

Tasha Thomas, who identified herself as Crawford’s girlfriend and appeared in the audience with his family members at Wednesday’s police news conference, said that Crawford has two children and that she has known him for four months.

 

She said she drove him to the Walmart after picking him up at an outlet mall in Cincinnati. He was not armed when he entered the Walmart, she said. She said she was with him in the store, but was in another aisle when he was shot.

 

“He did not have any type of gun on him,” she said. “It’s not fair.”

(rawstory.com) – Police fatally shot a man carrying an air rifle at an Ohio Walmart earlier this week. Another customer called 911 to report 22-year-old John Crawford waving what appeared to be an AR-15 at children and others at the Beavercreek retailer. The mother of Crawford’s children said she was speaking to him by cell phone when he was confronted by police in the store. “He said he was at the video games playing videos, and he went over there by the toy section where the toy guns were,” said LeeCee Johnson. “The next thing I know, he said, ‘It’s not real,’ and the police start shooting, and they said ‘Get on the ground,’ but he was already on the ground because they had shot him.”

I’m going to attempt to write this without profanity…..fuck that, the police in the United States of AmeriKKKa have lost their muthafuckin minds. How the holy hell does a law enforcement officer arrive on the scene and just shoot a “Black” man dead for holding a weapon in a Wal-Mart, without first ascertaining if said weapon is real? How many caucasian fucks open carrying weapons have been stopped by death from opening carrying?

I am sick and fucking tired of blatant racism fueling AmeriKKKa. Laws in this “never great nation” are not based on skin tone or lack of Melatonin in your DNA. Which is known as a Melatonin Deficiency. If coward ass caucasians are allowed by LAW to open carry, then a Black man is allowed by that same Law to open carry to protect himself from those coward ass caucasians who “legally open carry.

 

Common sense & logic 101. Laws are written for the people by the people,…ALL PEOPLE. NOT JUST RACIST CAUCASIANS.

 

A Race War is needed to purge the United States Of AmeriKKKa of it’s disease of racism. Blood needs to be shed to remove this divide between racist caucasians and people of color.

 

Here ends the lesson.

 

What The United States Of AmeriKKKa has become………….

MICHAEL QUINE/ LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL Two Metro officers shot in northeast Las Vegas identified Two Las Vegas police officers were killed Sunday in an apparent ambush attack in a pizza restaurant that spilled over to a nearby Walmart store, where the two shooters committed suicide after shooting and killing a woman.

 

Shooters in Metro ambush that left five dead spoke of white supremacy and a desire to kill police.

 

By REVIEW-JOURNAL STAFF

 

Two Las Vegas police officers were killed Sunday in what appears to be a politically motivated ambush in a pizza restaurant that spilled over to a nearby Wal-Mart, where the two shooters committed suicide after killing a woman in the store.

 

Details are sketchy, but Metropolitan Police Department sources close to the investigation say the shooters shouted that “this is the start of a revolution” before opening fire on the officers, and draped their bodies with cloth showing a Revolutionary War-era flag. Investigators have also found paraphernalia associated with white supremacists.

 

Sunday night, Metro homicide investigators and FBI agents cordoned off and were searching a small apartment complex at 110 S. Bruce St., about four miles from the shooting scene. A resident of the complex said he had spoken with a man who lived in the apartment being searched. He said the man appeared “militant,” and often talked about conspiracy theories.

 

An explosion was heard at the apartment complex at about 9:30 p.m., but no information was immediately available Sunday night.

 

Sheriff Doug Gillespie said officers Alyn Beck, 41, and Igor Soldo, 31, were shot while they ate lunch at CiCi’s Pizza, 309 N. Nellis Blvd., at about 11:20 a.m. Sunday. In a late afternoon news conference he said no motive for the attack has been determined.

 

“It’s a tragic day,” the sheriff said. “We have lost two officers with young families.”

 

Beck was a senior patrol officer who had taught Advanced Officer Skills Training and at the Metro academy. He was hired by Metro in 2001 and had a wife and three children.

 

Soldo has been a Metro officer since 2006 and had a wife and baby. Both were uniform patrol officers assigned to the Northeast Area Command.

 

 

THE ATTACK

A law enforcement official who has been briefed on the incident said an officer — unconfirmed reports indicate it was Soldo — was refilling a soft drink when the female shooter approached him from behind and shot him in the head, killing him instantly.

 

The woman then shot the other officer several times as he drew his pistol. Gillespie said the officer was able to return fire but it was unclear if he hit anyone.

 

One officer was reported dead at the scene, while the other died later in surgery at University Medical Center.

 

Witnesses told police one of the shooters yelled “This is the start of a revolution” before shooting the officers. Gillespie later said he could not confirm that.

 

The shooters then stripped the officers of their weapons and ammunition and badges, according to a law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation. They then covered the officers with something that featured the Gadsden flag, a yellow banner with a coiled snake above the words, “Don’t tread on Me.”

 

The flag is named for Christopher Gadsden a Revolutionary War general who designed it. It has recently come back in vogue as an adopted symbol of the American tea party movement.

 

The shooters left the pizza parlor and headed into the Wal-Mart across the street at 201 North Nellis. Witnesses at the scene reported hearing shots fired in quick succession inside the Wal-Mart.

 

At a news conference at about 1 p.m. Assistant Sheriff Kevin McMahill said the male shooter, described as a tall white man, yelled “everyone get out” before shooting.

 

One unconfirmed report is that the two exchanged gunfire with a citizen who was carrying a concealed weapon, and that one of the shooters was injured.

 

A woman was shot and killed just inside the front doors of the Wal-Mart. Her name has not yet been released.

 

As Metro officers entered the front and back doors of the store they exchanged gunfire with the shooters, Gillespie said.

 

The female shooter then shot her accomplice at least once before shooting herself in the head, a law enforcement official said. The wounded man then shot and killed himself. Their identities have not been released by police.

 

Both shooters were reportedly carrying large duffle bags, and a bomb squad was called to the scene. It’s unclear what, if anything, was found in the bags. A fire department official said the bomb squad response was “a precaution.”

 

Hector Garcia was shopping in Wal-Mart’s arts and crafts aisle toward the back of the store when he encountered a man brandishing a gun. He looked like he was in his 20s, was wearing camouflage and had a duffle bag draped over his shoulder.

 

He said the shooter appeared calm when he pointed the gun at him and said, “Don’t run.” The gunman, Garcia said, continued walking to the back of the store. Garcia said that store employees were evacuating customers through the back of the store.

 

After the gunman walked out of sight, Garcia walked out of the store. Garcia said he was shaken up and couldn’t remember what kind of gun the man carried.

 

 

THE SHOOTERS

The shooters were a married couple thought to be in their late 20s who were new to the Las Vegas Valley, according to a law enforcement official close to the investigation. Police are looking into their links to the white supremacy movement and found swastika symbols during their initial investigation.

 

Residents of the Bruce Street apartment complex gathered outside the building to talk about the couple whose unit was being searched.

 

Several neighbors identified the man as Jared, while one called the woman Amanda.

 

Like many of the neighbors contacted, Krista Koch said she didn’t know the couple’s last names. She described them as “militant.” They talked about planning to kill police officers, “going underground” and not coming out until the time was right to kill.

 

Brandon Monroe, 22, has lived in the complex for about two weeks. He said the man who lived in the apartment that was being searched often rambled about conspiracy theories. He often wore camouflage or dressed as Peter Pan to work as a Fremont Street Experience street performer. A woman lived with him, Monroe said, but he didn’t see her as often.

 

They were weird people, Monroe said, adding that he thought the couple used methamphetamine.

 

“The man told Monroe he had been kicked off Cliven Bundy’s ranch 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas while people from throughout the U.S. gathered there in protest of a Bureau of Land Management roundup of Bundy’s cattle.” Jessica Anderson, 27, said. She lived next door.

 

Reached Sunday, the rancher’s wife, Carol Bundy, said the shooting and the April standoff against the federal government were not linked.

 

“I have not seen or heard anything from the militia and others who have came to our ranch that would, in any way, make me think they had an intent to kill or harm anyone,” Carol Bundy said.

 

Las Vegas police have not said whether they believe the attack was more than an isolated incident, but the department asked for any available off-duty officers to work Sunday afternoon.

 

Patrol squads were doubling up so each officer would have a partner, sources said. Metro officers usually patrol solo, but Gillespie said they would continue to ride with partners in the coming days while the investigation continues.

 

“It’s a very, very difficult day,” Gillespie said, “but we still have a community to police, and we still have a community to protect.”

 

FBI officials would say little about their involvement in the investigation.

 

“We will not comment on specifics at this time,” FBI spokeswoman Bridget Pappas said. “The FBI is working closely with LVMPD and our law enforcement partners to determine the facts of this tragic incident.”

 

 

A WAR ZONE

Late into the afternoon dozens of bystanders were standing outside police tape, watching the investigation. Wal-Mart employees and shoppers cried and hugged before police took them to be interviewed in a nearby store. After talking with witnesses, officers took them to one of several buses waiting in the parking lot.

 

A grandmother who was shopping in Wal-Mart with her two teenage granddaughters said they crouched in a makeup aisle when they heard shots. She prayed out loud, but the girls asked her to keep quiet so the shooters wouldn’t find them.

 

When they peeked around the aisle and couldn’t see the shooters, they ran out of the store.

 

Marlene Buck works at the Denny’s on Nellis across from Wal-Mart. She said she was impressed with Metro’s quick response.

 

“It took less than fifteen minutes,” she said.

 

As police patrol cars cordoned off the street, Buck said restaurant customers crowded against the windows and started to rush outside.

 

“I did everything I could to keep everyone inside,” she said, adding it looked like a war zone and making a machine-gun gesture with her hands.

 

Reporters Francis McCabe, Mike Blasky, Wesley Juhl, Annalise Porter, Ricardo Torres, Keith Rogers and Jeff German and photographer Erik Verduzco contributed to this report.

If this is not the direct fault of the U.S. Un-Supreme Court, The NRAssholes, all AmeriKKKan citizens cheering on militia groups and dumbasses such as those who ran to aid Clive Bundy, then I’m a caucasian woman with 44 DD breast. And I am NOT.

 

AmeriKKKa and her gun laws, or lack of gun laws, are killing the American way of life.

President Obama Speaks On American Energy…..At Wal-Mart.

I don’t usually disagree with POTUS Barack Hussein Obama, and he’s much smarter than I on issues, it’s why I voted for him twice and support him 5000%. This visit to Wal-Mart goes against everything I stand for. The Walton family are selfish greedy assholes, and I can think of 500,000 better places to talk about American energy than a Wal-Mart store.

President Obama Speaks on American Energy

 

Published on May 9, 2014

President Obama announces new steps to help generate more clean energy, waste less energy overall, and leave our kids and our grandkids with a cleaner, safer planet in the process. May 9, 2014.

 

 

 

Remarks by the President on American Energy

Walmart
Mountain View, California

9:48 A.M. PDT

 

THE PRESIDENT:  Hello, Mountain View!  (Applause.)  It’s good to be in California.  Everybody, have a seat.  Have a seat.  This is actually my third day on the West Coast.  On Wednesday, we went to L.A., then we went to San Diego, we’re here in the Bay Area.  But I have to get back because Sunday is what?

 

AUDIENCE:  Mother’s Day!

 

THE PRESIDENT:  It is Mother’s Day.  That is a public service announcement — do not forget.  (Laughter.)  It’s Mother’s Day.

 

I told Michelle one time, I said, how come people put so much emphasis on Mother’s Day, and Father’s day not so much?  (Laughter.)  She said every day other than Mother’s Day is Father’s Day.  (Laughter and applause.)  Which I thought kind of quieted me down.

 

I want to thank your mayor, Chris Clark, for hosting us.  (Applause.)  I want to thank the folks at Walmart.  And I know this looks like a typical Walmart, but it is different — and that’s why I’m here.  A few years ago, you decided to put solar panels on the roof of the store.  You replaced some traditional light bulbs with LEDs.  You made refrigerator cases more efficient.  And you even put in a charging station for electric vehicles.  And all told, those upgrades created dozens of construction jobs and helped this store save money on its energy bills.  And that’s why I’m here today — because more and more companies like Walmart are realizing that wasting less energy isn’t just good for the planet, it’s good for business.  It’s good for the bottom line.

 

AUDIENCE MEMBER:  (Inaudible.)

 

THE PRESIDENT:  Yes, see, he agrees.  (Applause.)  And it means jobs.

 

Changing the way we use energy is just one of the ways Americans have been working so hard to move this country forward.  In the wake of the worst financial and economic crisis in generations, our businesses now have created over 9.2 million new jobs.  A housing market that was reeling is rebounding.  An auto industry that was flat-lining is now booming.  You’ve got a manufacturing sector that had lost a third of its jobs during the ‘90s and now is adding jobs for the first time.  More than 8 million Americans have now signed up for health care coverage through the Affordable Care Act.  (Applause.)  Troops that were fighting two wars are coming home.  And rather than create jobs in other countries, more companies are actually choosing to create jobs and invest right here in the United States of America.

 

But we’ve got a long way to go before we get to where we need to be — which is an economy where everybody who works hard, everybody who takes responsibility has a chance to get ahead, and that we have a chance to build an economy that works not just for a few at the top, but for everybody.  That’s our goal — the idea that no matter who you are, no matter what you look like, no matter where you come from, what your last name is, if you work hard, if you take responsibility, you can make it here in America.

 

And that starts with helping businesses create more good jobs.  One of the biggest factors in bringing jobs back to America has been our commitment to American energy over the last five years.  When I took office, we set out to break our dependence on foreign oil.  Today, America is closer to energy independence than we have been in decades.  We generate more renewable energy than ever, with tens of thousands of good American jobs to show for it.  We produce more natural gas than anyone — and nearly everybody’s energy bill is lower because of it.  So are our carbon emissions that cause climate change.

 

We set new fuel standards for our cars and trucks so that they’ll go twice as far on a gallon of gas by the middle of the next decade.  That saves the typical family about $8,000 at the pump.  And for the first time in nearly 20 years, America produces more oil here at home than we buy from other countries.

 

So we’re producing more traditional energy, but we’re also becoming a leader in the energy sources of the future.  We’re becoming a global leader in solar, thanks in part to the investments we’ve made in the Recovery Act.  Over the past few years, the cost of solar panels have fallen by 60 percent; solar installations have increased by 500 percent.  Every four minutes, another American home or business goes solar, and every panel is pounded into place by a worker whose job cannot be overseas.

 

So today, no matter where you live or where you do business, solar is getting cheaper and is getting easier to use than before.  And with more businesses and rural cooperatives and homes choosing solar, prices keep coming down, manufacturers keep getting more innovative, and more jobs are created.  Last year, jobs in the solar industry increased by 20 percent.

But we’ve got more work to do.  And I want to work with Congress to do it.  Unfortunately, Congress has not always been as visionary on these issues as we would like.  It can be a little frustrating.  But in this Year of Action, wherever I can go ahead and create my own opportunities for new jobs, I’m going to take it.

 

And so far, I’ve taken more than 20 executive actions — from launching new hubs to attracting more high-tech manufacturing jobs to America, to reforming our job training programs to make sure more Americans are getting the skills they need to get the jobs that exist right now.

 

And so today, here at Walmart, I want to announce a few more steps that we’re taking that are going to be good for job growth and good for our economy, and that we don’t have to wait for Congress to do.  They are going to be steps that generate more clean energy, waste less energy overall, and leave our kids and our grandkids with a cleaner, safer planet in the process.

 

So let me list these out.  Number one, we know that making buildings more energy efficient is one of the easiest, cheapest ways to create jobs, save money, and cut down on harmful pollution that causes climate change.  It could save our businesses tens of billions of dollars a year on their energy bills — and they can then use that money to grow and hire more folks.  It would put construction workers back to work installing new systems and technologies.  So this is what you call a win-win-win.

 

So that’s why, three years ago, I announced what we called the Better Buildings Initiative.  It’s an ambitious plan to improve the energy efficiency of America’s commercial buildings by 20 percent by the year 2020.  And already we’ve got 190 businesses and organizations that have signed on.  On average, they’re on track to meet their goal — cutting energy use by 2.5 percent every single year.  Together, they’ve already saved $300 million in energy costs.  So we know it works.

 

And that’s why, over the past few months, I’ve been picking up the phone and reaching out to more leaders to get them on board.  And today, they’re stepping up — from cities, school districts, businesses, universities, you’re seeing folks move on energy efficiency.  GM is pledging to improve energy efficiency in 31 plants.  The University of Virginia is doing the same thing in its buildings.  Cities like Little Rock, Kansas City and Detroit are replacing regular street lights with more efficient LEDs.

 

And at Walmart, you’ve committed to reducing energy consumption across 850 million square feet of space.  That’s a lot.  That’s enough to cover more than half of the city of San Francisco.  Taken together, this is going to make a difference, and it’s the right thing to do for the planet, but it’s also the right thing to do for the bottom line.  Because when you save that money you can pass that money back to consumers in the form of lower prices, or you can use it to create more jobs.

 

So folks in the private sector are doing their part to create jobs and reduce pollution and cut waste.  I’m making sure the federal government does its part.  Two years ago, I ordered $2 billion in energy upgrades to federal buildings.  Today, I’m ordering an additional $2 billion in upgrades over the next three years.  And these upgrades will create tens of thousands of construction jobs and save taxpayers billions of dollars.

 

The Department of Energy is putting a new efficiency standard — set of efficiency standards in place that could save businesses billions of dollars in energy costs and cut carbon pollution — and it’s the equivalent of taking about 80 million cars off the road.  And I want to thank Ernie Moniz, Secretary of Energy, and Secretary Donovan — Shaun Donovan of HUD — who are here today because they’ve shown extraordinary leadership on these issues.  That’s worth applauding.  (Applause.)

 

So that’s the first announcement.  Cities, schools, businesses, the federal government — we’re all going to pledge to waste less energy and we’ve got concrete strategies that we know work.

 

The second announcement is about more Americans coming together to use more clean energy.  Last month, I called up leaders from a whole range of industries and made the economic case for why solar is a good idea.  And they listened.  And today, more than 300 organizations — from homebuilders, to affordable housing owners, to companies like Home Depot and Apple — announced that they are going to expand the use of solar energy, thereby creating more jobs and cutting carbon pollution.

 

We’ve got public banks like Connecticut’s Green Bank and private banks like Goldman Sachs ready to invest billions of dollars in renewable energy.  The Treasury Department and the IRS are making it easier for renewable energy companies to operate and attract investment.  And we’re going to support training programs at community colleges across the country that will help 50,000 workers earn the skills that solar companies are looking for right now.

 

Walmart has already got the most installed on-site solar capacity of any company in America.  And now you’ve announced plans to double that capacity.  And it’s all part of your goal to buy or produce 7 billion kilowatt hours of renewable energy by 2020 — something that could save Walmart $1 billion a year in energy costs.

 

So we know that generating more clean energy, using less dirty energy, and wasting less energy overall can be good for business and consumers.  And it’s also good for the world that we leave for our children.

 

So together, the commitments we’re announcing today prove that there are cost-effective ways to tackle climate change and create jobs at the same time.  So often, when we hear about how we’re going to deal with this really serious issue, people say we can’t afford to do it; it won’t be good for the economy.  It will be good for the economy long term — and if we don’t, that will be bad for the economy.  Rising sea levels, drought, more wildfires, more severe storms — those are bad for the economy.  So we can’t afford to wait.  And there’s no reason why we can’t even go further than we are so far by working with states and utilities, and other organizations to change the way we power our economy.  Climate change is real and we have to act now.

 

Earlier this week, I issued — or we issued a report that was years in the making called the National Climate Assessment.  Hundreds of scientists, experts and businesses, not-for-profits, local communities all contributed over the course of four years.  What they found was unequivocally that climate change is not some far-off problem in the future.  It’s happening now.  It’s causing hardship now.  It’s affecting every sector of our economy and our society — more severe floods, more violent wildfires.  It’s already costing cities and states and families and businesses money.

 

Here in California, you’ve seen these effects firsthand.  You know what’s happening.  And increasingly, more and more Americans do — including, by the way, many Republicans outside of Washington.

 

So unfortunately, inside of Washington we’ve still got some climate deniers who shout loud, but they’re wasting everybody’s time on a settled debate.  Climate change is a fact.

 

And while we know the shift to clean energy won’t happen overnight, we’ve got to make some tough choices along the way.  And we know that if we do, it’s going to save us ultimately money and create jobs over the long term.  That’s what Walmart understands, and Walmart is pretty good at counting its pennies.

 

So that’s why this fight is so important.  That’s why the sooner we work together to adapt the economy to this reality of climate change, the more likely it is that we do right by our kids and leave a more stable world.  And ultimately that’s what motivates a whole lot of us.

 

As Americans, we don’t look backwards.  We look forward.  We don’t fear the future, we seize it.  We shape it.  And when it comes to energy, we have a chance to shape that sector that is probably going to have more to do with how well our economy succeeds than just about any other.  We are blessed when it comes to energy, but we’re much more blessed when it comes to the innovation and the dynamism and the creativity of our economy.

 

If we do our part right now to rebuild an economy and transition to a clean energy future, we will create new jobs, we will reduce our dependence on foreign oil, we will leave our children with a better America and a better future.

 

So thank you very much, everybody.  God bless you.  (Applause.)  Thanks to all the companies who are doing the great work, and the not-for-profits.  We appreciate your leadership.

 

Thank you, guys.  Happy Mother’s Day, moms!  (Applause.)

Activists gather outside Walmart for Obama appearance

 

By Vivian Ho

 

Activists and schoolchildren gathered outside a Mountain View shopping center Friday in anticipation of President Obama’s visit to a Walmart there.

Obama appeared at the store shortly before 10 a.m. to give a speech touting renewable energy initiatives. He selected Walmart because the chain has been working to boost its use of green energy.

Labor groups were angry with the president’s choice, noting complaints that the company has worked to keep unions out of its stores and wages and benefits low.

As a teacher instructed a group of elementary-school students where to stand to watch the president’s motorcade, a handful of demonstrators held signs across the street from the store on El Camino Real, calling for a raise in the minimum wage and better working conditions for Silicon Valley’s working class.

“People think of Silicon Valley as this rich area, but there’s this group of people who are contributing to the region and haven’t found a way to share the wealth,” said Alison Hicks, 56, of Mountain View. “Raising the minimum wage is a good start.”

Elena Pacheco, a 56-year-old teacher from Mountain View, said many of her students’ families can’t afford the $1,800 average rent for a one-bedroom apartment in the city.

“Here, you have a private dog park,” she said, gesturing to the neighborhood next to Walmart. “Ten minutes from here, my students are sleeping in living rooms because their parents can’t afford bedrooms.”

Meghan Fraley, 31, of the Raise the Wage Mountain View Coalition, said she wanted to show Obama that local residents support his call to increase the national minimum wage, an initiative that has been blocked in Congress. She said her group wants the City Council to consider raising the minimum wage in Mountain View.

“We want to make sure action is taken,” Fraley said. “With all these people sleeping in their cars, we can’t wait.”

Dozens of other protesters gathered at the far end of the Walmart parking lot before Obama arrived, holding signs asking for him to support the chain’s workers.

Mixed in among the demonstrators were activists holding signs calling for an end to drone-aircraft attacks. An activist dressed as Darth Vader held a tongue-in-cheek sign supporting government surveillance.

Maria Noel Fernandez, 31, director of organizing and civic engagement at the nonprofit Working Partnerships, expressed disappointment that Obama chose to visit Walmart instead of actively support its workers.

“Obama needs to listen to the workers and make sure all workers can live with dignity,” she said. “Today’s economy is really leaving people behind. The rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer, and it doesn’t have to be like that.”

 

 

President to Speak at Walmart, Labor Unions to Protest

President Barack Obama is expected to visit a a Walmart in Silicon Valley on Friday. But the leader of the free world is not planning to be there to pick up a pair of cheap sweats. Instead, Obama plans to speak at 10 a.m. at a Mountain View Walmart about solar energy, and the employment numbers that are expected to rise with creating jobs to cut carbon pollution.

 

 

At Wal-Mart, Obama touts steps on solar power

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (AP) — Calling it the right thing to do for America’s bottom line, President Barack Obama announced new steps Friday by companies, local governments and his own administration to deploy solar technology, showcasing steps to combat climate change that don’t require consent from a disinclined Congress.

 

 

Walmart Puts Price of Solar Power on Rollback (Wal-Mart Stores Inc)

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 9, 2014 – At an event with President Barack Obama, Walmart today announced that it will double the number of on-site solar energy projects at its U.S. stores, Sam’s Clubs and distribution centers by 2020. 

 

 

Throwing shade on solar push? Obama riles organized labor with Walmart visit

The 840-page “National Climate Assessment” paints a grim picture for America, warning of severe droughts, rising sea levels and other catastrophic consequences of global warming. Do you agree with this report? President Obama on Friday will announce new executive actions to promote renewable power and energy efficiency.

 

 

Lets hope MY President is playing chess and is 24 moves ahead of me AND the protesters.

President Barack Obama, in Mountain View, Calif. visits a Walmart on Friday to talk about his energy programs and new public and private committments and executive actions to cut carbon pollution. Walmart, often a target of the left because of its labor policies, gets the presidential visit to highlight, according to the White House, its pledge “to double the number of onsite solar energy projects at U.S. stores, Sam’s Clubs, and Distribution Centers by 2020, as part of their commitment to drive the production or procurement of 7 billion kWh of renewable energy by the end of the decade.”

Please TELL WALMART: STOP SELLING CRICKET GUNS FOR/TO YOUNG CHILDREN


 

By Jueseppi B.

THIS should scare the fuck out of you.

THIS should scare the fuck out of you.

 

Walmart, the American multinational retail giant, currently sells Crickett Firearms, a line of rifles that are marketed to very young children under the tagline “My First Rifle.” These weapons often look like toys, coming in colors like pink and orange.

 

A new study shows that 20 children and teens are hospitalized every day for gun injuries in the United States. Nearly 2,700 children and teens died from gun-related injuries in 2010. U.S. children and teens are 17 times more likely to die from a gun than their peers in 25 other high-income countries combined.

 

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has made it clear that “the safest home for children is one without a gun.” According to a past president of the AAP, “Firearm injuries are often fatal—there are few second chances. Young children are curious, and are often unable to remember or follow safety rules. Older children and teens naturally tend to be moody and impulsive. When you combine these traits with access to guns, the consequences can be tragic and permanent.”

 

As the second largest public corporation in the world, Walmart says “we’re proud of what we’ve accomplished so far on our journey to become a more…responsible business.” But responsible businesses do not market weapons to young children, particularly in a country where children suffer such a high rate of gun death.

 

Tell Walmart: Stop selling Crickett Firearms at your stores immediately.
